Clean Team Combats Winter Weather
During record breaking cold yesterday and today, the Lincoln Square BID's 14 member Clean Team continued to brave the elements and clean up from Winter Storm Hercules. The team salted and cleared snow from crosswalks, pedestrian crossings in the Broadway malls, bus stops, catch basins, fire hydrants, and walkways around Richard Tucker Park and Dante Park.  As always, the Clean Team ensured the sidewalks and curbs were litter free and they cleared garbage throughout the district.
