About the Meatpacking BID
The Meatpacking Business Improvement District (BID) is the not-for-profit business alliance of the area whose mission is to support the business community and to keep the area clean, safe and beautiful for locals and visitors alike. Founded by the Meatpacking Improvement Association (MPIA), which was formed in 2010 by a small group of neighborhood property owners and key businesses, to expand upon the good work of the MPIA.
The BID keeps the area clean, safe and beautiful through the expert work of our clean-team, landscapers and public safety officers. We manage and maintain the district’s public spaces in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation (most are currently, under construction), represent and promote the area’s business interests, produce events and manage a marketing and public relations campaign for the neighborhood.
The plaza redesign will aesthetically improve 9th Avenue and will infuse a new life into the area by encouraging people to not just browse and shop, but to stay, sit, eat and attend events in the heart of our neighborhood. While the plazas undergo construction, we will manage and program Hudson River Park’s 14th Street Park, located on 10th Avenue between 14th and 15th Streets.
As our community continues to reinvent itself year-in and year-out, with anchor destinations like the High Line and The Whitney, we must ensure our public realm is just as inviting and engaging as our places of business and culture. The Meatpacking BID seeks to revitalize and reinvigorate right alongside all of the innovators that call the Meatpacking District home.

All of the area’s eight area public plazas are currently under construction.
