Lincoln Square BID Expands Sanitation Partnerships
The Lincoln Square BID has entered into a new 3 year contract with Atlantic Maintenance, the sanitation provider who directly employs the Lincoln Square BID Clean Team. Atlantic has provided sanitation services for Lincoln Square since the BID started providing supplemental services in 1997.
The Lincoln Square BID has also recently expanded its community service program with Midtown Community Court. We now get extra help five days a week. Individuals sentenced to community service work with our Clean Team to help keep Lincoln Square spotless. With the harsh winter weather, the expansion could not have come at a better time.

NYC Clean Heat

According to a recent report released by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, hundreds of premature deaths and thousands of ER visits and hospitalizations are caused by PM 2.5 emissions from heavy heating oils in NYC each year. The Upper West Side is one of the top five areas of the City that emits PM 2.5 from heavy heating oil. Much of this pollution comes from outdated heating systems in residential buildings.


Fortunately, buildings that are motivated to make the switch to cleaner heating fuels have a 'one-stop shop'  to turn to for help. NYC Clean Heat can provide technical assistance as well as details on financing and information on incentives. Visit to learn more.

NYPD Crime Prevention Tip: Money Card Scam
The New York City Police Department and the 20th Precinct recently warned against criminals who are stealing from the public using a phone scam to solicit money from prepaid debit cards in the following ways:
  • A caller informs the victim that they owe back taxes and must make an immediate payment with a Green Dot Money-Pak card.
  • A caller tells a victim a family member was in a car accident. The caller then threatens the victim unless they are immediately reimbursed with a Green Dot Money-Pak card.
  • A caller informs a victim that his or her utility services will be disconnected unless the caller receives immediate payment via a Green Dot Money-Pak card.
Here are some tips from the NYPD to guard against this and other scams:
  • Be suspicious of callers demanding immediate payment for any reason.
  • Never give out personal or financial information to anyone who calls/email unsolicited.
  • Be aware that companies and government agencies will not contact you demanding immediate payment via Money-Pak cards.
  • Never wire money or provide credit card numbers to people you don't know.
  • Remember anyone who has your Green Dot Money-Pak card number has access to the funds on the card.

Tomatito: An Evening of Flamenco at Jazz at Lincoln Center
Jazz at Lincoln Center presents an ensemble led by the magisterial Andalusian Gitano guitarist and 2013 Latin GRAMMY® Award winner Tomatito who will perform at the Rose Theater on Saturday, March 15. The concert is presented in partnership with the New York Flamenco Festival.


Tomatito blends the earthy sound of classical flamenco and the sophisticated harmonic template of modern jazz. A teenage protégé of the legendary cantante Camarón de la Isla and the iconic guitarist Paco DeLucia, Tomatito - whose 2010 release Sonata Suite earned him his second Latin GRAMMY® Award - is a key figure in coalescing flamenco vocabulary with North African and Afro-Caribbean idioms, and in extending flamenco's range via consequential collaborations.
