Launched in July 2009, the Hudson Square Connection is completing the neighborhood's transformation into a major creative hub, home to over 50,000 people working in advertising, design, media, communications and other cutting edge businesses. Our district is generally bounded by West Houston Street on the north, Canal Street on the south, 6th Avenue on the east and Greenwich Street on the west.
The mission of the Connection is to put the Hudson Square neighborhood on the map while simultaneously improving local traffic congestion, beautifying and enlivening the streets, and re-enforcing a socially, culturally and environmentally connected community. Our goal is to capture the spirit and innovation that is thriving in the commercial spaces and bring that energy into the public realm.
The Hudson Square Connection is a 501c3, funded primarily through the payment of an annual assessment on commercial property. The NYC Department of Finance disburses these funds to the BID through a contract with the Department of Small Business Services.
