Opposition of Chinatown BID Heard
Dozens of concerned Chinatown property and small business owners opposed and protested against the pending Chinatown Business Improvement District (BID) plan. They gathered at Kim Lau Square yesterday morning to announce that this plan will have disastrous impact on the community. They worried that a B.I.D. will destroy existing small businesses and affordable housing. They also said that City Councilwoman Margaret Chin only promotes her own political agenda and ignores other opinions. The New York City Council will vote on this matter later this month.World Journal (C2)
