Thriving Local Business Leaders meet Council Member Corey Johnson

Council Member Corey Johnson headlined last night’s Greenwich Village Business Exchange and Networking Event, co-presented by the Village Alliance and Greenwich Village & Chelsea Chamber of Commerce.

Over forty guests from thriving small businesses in the area joined the event, representing the diverse range of industry which exists in our district including finance, printing, theater, retail and education.

Many of the district’s small business owners often express concern about the impact of high rents on their business. Council Member Johnson spoke extensively about the current policy positions on Commercial Rent Regulation and Commercial Rent Tax, explaining how both Albany & City Hall are working on future legislation. Council Member Johnson also fielded a number of wide ranging questions from guests, while taking time to highlight the collaborative efforts of local stakeholders to help small businesses recover from the recent 23rd Street bombing.

The event, hosted by Some Good Wine and catered by EVA’s Kitchen, presented numerous opportunities for local business owners to meet and network, developing new relationships, contacts and exchanging ideas for best practice.

Earlier this year the Village Alliance and Greenwich Village & Chelsea Chamber of Commerce held a Spring Business Exchange and Networking Event when Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer was the special guest speaker.
