GLEN COVE DOWNTOWN BID AND GLEN COVE YOUTH BUREAU JOIN HANDS IN GIVING NEW LIFE TO THE DOWNTOWN BREWSTER STREET GARAGE

Glen Cove, N.Y. - “The revitalization of the Brewster Street Garage has been on the BID agenda for quite some time. It was when the BID thought to include the city of Glen Cove Youth Bureau that they finally received the approval to move forward with this project”, said Brian Mercadante, Co-Chair of the BID Capital Improvements Committee. Jacquelyn Yonick, the coordinator for the Youth Bureau, responded positively to the project. “This gives them a sense of community pride while they’re accomplishing something for their first job experience” said Yonick.
In an effort to brighten up and make the garage more user friendly for visitors in the downtown area, the Youth Bureau started painting all the wayfinding signs on one side of the garage red, and on the other side blue, while stenciling individual letters per floor. Four short weeks later the Youth Bureau completed this project, giving new life to the Brewster Street garage.  “The Youth Bureau’s fine work surpassed our expectations, they certainly have much to be proud of and have given a great deal to the Glen Cove community”, said Patricia Holman, Executive Director of the BID.
The Glen Cove Downtown BID donated the stencils and materials, Aboff’s Paint generously donated the paint, and the City of Glen Cove Summer Youth Employment Program provided the labor.
“The Glen Cove Business Improvement District, the City of Glen Cove Youth Bureau, and a local business got together and made something nice happen in the community” said Brian Mercadante.
