Crowley Funds New Historic Streetlamps For Myrtle Avenue

Glendale businesses along Myrtle Avenue don’t often get the same resources as Myrtle Avenue Ridgewood businesses. Recognizing this inequity, Council Member Elizabeth Crowley allocated $700,000 for capital improvements along this major corridor between Fresh Pond Road and 86th Street.

After meeting with the community, residents and the Council Member moved forward with a proposal to bring historic streetlights from 80th Street to Woodhaven Boulevard. Last week, the Public Design Commission of the City of New York approved the project.

“I’m so pleased we can move forward with this project to beautify Myrtle Avenue and make it more attractive for consumers, residents and business owners. This commercial corridor lends in fueling our local economy, and it’s important to do what we can to keep it thriving,” Crowley said.
