Meet the BID
BRONX, NEW YORK, April 4- Did you know that New York’s third largest shopping district is right here in the Bronx?
The Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID) runs along Fordham Road from Jerome to Third Avenue and includes over 300 businesses. From small local boutiques to national chains, the wide variety of merchandise on Fordham Road makes it a popular outdoor shopping strip.
The BID hosts events throughout the year on Fordham Road, from sidewalk sales to outdoor movies to holiday shopping discount programs to help you find that perfect bargain. And recently, the BID installed 15 benches along Fordham Road to give you a place to relax and enjoy a break from a busy day of shopping. Fordham Road is a major transportation hub with a wide variety of options to get you here quickly and easily, including the B, D and 4 NYC Transit subway lines, Metro-North Railroad Harlem line and numerous bus lines.
