The Madison Avenue Business Improvement District strives to make Madison Avenue from East 57th Street to East 86th Street a more attractive and dynamic place.  The area includes approximately 250 buildings and 800 businesses, and features some of the world’s most celebrated boutiques, restaurants, hotels, galleries and residences.

Matthew Bauer, President of the Madison Avenue BID provides marketing, supplemental safety and sanitation services, and streetscape improvements for the businesses located on Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side, one of the world’s leading luxury shopping, art & hospitality destinations.
