The Kings Highway Beautification Association (KHBA) has just completed the next step on the way to restoring Kings Highway to its former splendor. Pedestrians will now find that the old, standard wire-meshed cans have been replaced by 18 brand new high-end trash receptacles.

The new litter receptacles have been strategically placed throughout the five block stretch of Kings Highway between Ocean Parkway and McDonald Avenue.

“The Kings Highway Beautification Association is proud to spear-head this long-awaited transforma­tion,” said David Hidary, co-president of KHBA. “We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our neighborhood residents and making this street a showcase for New York City.”

This is not the first successful project completed by KHBA. The association, a group of concerned and dedicated local residents and shop keepers, was instrumental in having the zebra-striped traffic triangle where East Fifth Street, Kings Highway and Avenue R meet transformed into a lush plant-filled garden, significantly improving the look of this commercial strip and providing seven new parking spaces.

In addition, KHBA has cleaned up the graffiti, power-washed the sidewalks, facilitated the planting of nearly 100 trees throughout the neighborhood, and stopped delivery of unwanted ad circulars to area homes.
