Any moment introduced on a random weekday to get off the streets of the never ending static of Gotham City’s pavements, and unite on a rooftop on casually warm night is always welcomed.
Why not, join professional New Yorkers and social butterflies alike on Wednesday, October 19 for the Flatiron 23rd Street Partnership’s annual networking event.
If you recall, back on June 7, the Flatiron 23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District (BID) celebrated its tenth anniversary, therefore, it would only make sense to host yet another amazing event and bring people together to pay homage to the Flatiron District’s flourishing neighborhood and community.
The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership Business Improvement District, formed in 2006, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to enhance the area’s reputation as one of New York’s most vital and exciting neighborhoods. This is accomplished by maintaining a clean and safe environment for the district’s businesses, residents, and visitors; by spearheading area improvement projects; and by marketing the diverse business and retail options in this vibrant and historic neighborhood.
The Penthouse and Rooftop Bar located at 230 Fifth drew a large crowd that included everyone in the Finance, Legal, Media/Communications, Restaurant, Real Estate industries and much more to come together and exchange business cards, possibly make new deals and solidify new business relationships while sipping on beverages and sampling delicious hors-d’oeuvres that were passed around.
After taking selfies with the breath-taking views of the Empire State and other beautiful landmarks in the night-time skyline, everyone moved inside. After a few speeches, a short documentary highlighting the new additions, innovations, and changes celebrating the current and future vision of the Flatiron district area, the night continued and ended with more networking.
Seriously, these type of events celebrating the unique neighborhoods that make up this great city is perhaps why New York City has to consistently promise to live up to the hype. Also, making October 19 that much more special and memorable, this was also the night of the third and final Presidential debate.
Even though the event only lasted for a few hours, hopefully, everyone walked away with new contacts and a little more insight of the excitement the Flatiron District can bring on any given day.
