Markowitz joins MetroTech Bid at opening of new Downtown Brooklyn Information Center

Borough President Marty Markowitz joined elected officials and MetroTech BID to cut the ribbon on the new Downtown Brooklyn Information Center, 370 Jay Street and Myrtle Avenue.

The all weather kiosk has been outfitted to provide the public with maps, information on Downtown Brooklyn destinations, stores, shopping and special events. The booth will be staffed by MetroTech BID’s street ambassadors, a group of knowledgeable and friendly college students who have been trained to provide local information services.

The center will initially be open on weekdays during business hours. Depending on acceptance and demand the hours may be expanded. For more, visit www.metrotechbid.org.
