Crain’s Publishes Commercial Corridor Op-Ed by LISC NYC and Citi Community Development

We are pleased to share with you this op-ed that ran November 9th in Crain’s New York Business, which Sam Marks, Executive Director, LISC NYC, co-wrote with Eileen Auld, New York tri-state director for Citi Community Development. The piece highlights the vital economic and social role that local commercial corridors play in New York City neighborhoods.

Despite the challenges that many commercial corridors face in low-income neighborhoods, public-private partnerships can provide targeted investments that help small businesses not merely survive but thrive amid change. Through the Commercial Corridor Challenge, LISC NYC is proud to be partnering with Citi Community Development and the NYC Department of Small Business Services to do just that in three New York City neighborhoods.
