The BMA is an organization located in Harlem's Bradhurst District. This effort was initiated for business to business networking and relations purposes. As business owners, it is important to become familiar with our business community owners, provide support in promoting the Bradhurst area, and its businesses, as well as to reach out to new perspective members and/or business people who are interested in opening businesses in the area. As we continue to grow and cultivate the area, the organization is expanding its efforts to provide residents/consumers with unmet services needed within the community
HAPPY NEW YEAR! MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT LACHENA CLARK
Happy New Year Bradhurst! Whether you reside here, work here or own a business in the district the, Bradhurst Merchants Association (BMA) would like to wish you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year.
2015 has been a phenomenal year for the BMA. We have doubled our membership, hosted our 1st Annual Fund Raiser & received our 1st grant from NYC SBS.
This calendar pays tribute to all the residents and families who live within the Bradhurst Business District. The images in the calendar reflect special places, some historic and others notable.
The Bradhurt Merchants Association is committed to bringing the goods and services the neighborhood's needs as well as helping to maintain a strong presence with existing businesses. Our neighborhood has been plagued by blight and many stores have closed due to the economic downturn. But as the New Year arises, we seek new opportunities to restore our beautiful neighborhood. We want all who possess the annual BMA calendar to remember to shop and dine within the Bradhurst Business District.
The Bradhurst Merchants Association will continue to seek new members, we will continue to support small businesses and we will continue to advocate for the Bradhurst Business District. If you are a merchant or corporation doing business in the Bradhurst district and would like to become a member, we would love to have you.
Again, thank you and please have a happy and healthy New Year.
