"Step" Into The Shoes of Our Clean Team And Win a Gift Card to New York Running Company by JackRabbit

What does healthy aging mean to you?

September is Healthy Aging Month, a time to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. As the calendar years pass by, it's important that we each take steps to keep our bodies happy and healthy, which can take many forms in your routine. It can mean taking steps to ensure you eat a more balanced diet, joining clubs to keep up with hobbies and activities, or it can mean engaging in more exercise.

Getting active around Lincoln Square is easy with the fitness facilities throughout the district and the active wear stores to help you find the right equipment. And, if you're looking for some inspiration, you need not look further than our wonderful crews on the street, especially our Clean Team. Ever notice our guys in blue uniforms? Our Clean Team members walk the district daily; taking many steps and working hard to ensure our neighborhood stays clean.

But just how many steps on average does one of our workers take in a full work day? In the spirit of Healthy Aging Month, a number of our workers recorded their steps with different devices and we want you to take a guess at the average number of steps they take. The person who provides the closest answer to the real average number of steps will win a gift card to  New York Running Company by JackRabbit, located on the second floor of The Shops at Columbus Circle, where you can get started on purchasing active wear and gear to help you stay healthy and active. Click here to take your guess and lock in your chance to win!

It is inspiring to know that our workers are active every day, walking the district. Say hi as you pass them on the street during your daily walk!

Forgiving Fines: New York City Amnesty Program
"Forgiving Fines: New York City Amnesty Program," is a Department of Finance (DOF) program that forgives penalties and interest on violations received by individuals and business owners from the Department of Sanitation, Department of Buildings and other City agencies. The amnesty period lasts through Monday, December 12.

The program covers violations left unpaid that are now in judgment.  To have a violation in judgment means the City of New York has filed a public record of liability due in court on a violation for the entire amount. Criminal violations and violations over $25,000 are excluded. Other limitations, exclusions and eligibility requirements apply.

'Brunch Bill' Makes for Earlier Mimosas
Set your alarms earlier for Sunday Brunch Bloody Marys and Mimosas.  Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation designed to modernize New York's 80-year-old Alcoholic Beverage Control Law earlier this month. The legislation allows alcohol to be sold earlier on Sundays, adds provisions to broaden retail sales by producers, and reduces fees for wineries, distilleries, breweries and cideries statewide. 

As part of the " Brunch Bill", restaurants and bars will be allowed to sell alcoholic drinks beginning at 10:00am on Sundays. So, be sure to check out all of the great restaurants in Lincoln Square that offer breakfast and brunch on Sundays. To find your new favorite brunch spot, just take a look at our handy dining guide  Where to Eat in Lincoln Square, available online or in hard copy at one of our Information Carousels located at Columbus Circle, Dante Park, and Richard Tucker Park.
