A sure sign of spring, over the weekend our Sanitation Supervisor Tony Stass was busy freshening up the district by painting some of Lincoln Square’s street furniture. Great work Tony!
 
And, as a part of a Citywide restoration, the NYC Department of Sanitation (DSNY) is adding back Sunday litter basket pickup, which is great news for Lincoln Square and the City! We would also like to give a very warm welcome to Adam Brewington, our new DSNY Superintendent at Manhattan District 7. We look forward to working with Adam and his team at MN7 in keeping Lincoln Square clean and litter free!
