Photo Of The Day: Shopping District Beautification in Port Washington

The B.I.D. adorns the area with hanging flower baskets.

The Greater Port Washington Business Improvement District (BID) again has purchased and installed 146 red and pink geranium hanging planters for the lampposts along Main Street and in front of Port Commons on Port Washington Boulevard.

The initiative aims to make this shopping district more picturesque while the weather is warm. Noting that this is just one of its beautification initiatives, the BID offered thanks to Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilwoman Dina De Giorgio, noting that the town’s Highway Department waters the planters daily.

I always note the beautiful hanging baskets. And I like the truck that comes along to water them. There is a guy on top of the truck with a spray-nozzle hose. A very cool job.

That's quite a picturesque "Verizon" sign...more interesting would have been a photo of the group of drunk guys that hang out on that corner throwing beer cans at the planters.

Now if they could only get rid of the tangle of overhead utilities and poles...

Maybe the main issue is the garbage cans along Main Street which often are full above capacity leaving garbage scattered on the streets. Store owners have to be responsible fort the sidewalks in front of their business just as the case in NYC. Clean the store front and filthy awnings which will help make the area more desirable for future business owners who are having more places to re-locate as more stores go vacant. Scoobie from P.
