Lucky Ant launches its first Coro Neighborhood!

A few weeks ago we posted about Lucky Ant, a hyper-local crowd-source financing mechanism that is working closely with Business Improvement Districts and other community organizations to support neighborhood revitalization. Lucky Ant works with the district organization to select businesses, or exciting public projects, that over time create a critical mass of improvements to a neighborhood. As a result of a collaboration with the Coro Neighborhood Leadership (NL) Program, a New York-based leadership and skills training program for commercial revitalization practitioners, Lucky Ant issued an RFP to the NL alumni community in an effort to identify the next neighborhood in their on-line arsenal. The Fordham Road BID, and Coro NL Alum, Deputy Executive Director Daniel Bernstein, were among the first to get in line. The project is a partnership between the Fordham Road BID, the NYC Department of Transportation and Bronx, and Bronx-based sculptor Christian Marche. To find out more about the project, and to support the BID's efforts with a donation, check out the video below, and click here! For as little as $10 dollars you can make a difference in this neighborhood!
