“The first half of 2016 was a period of sustained investment on Madison Avenue,” said Matthew Bauer, President of the Madison Avenue Business Improvement District (BID). “In addition to our roster of new retailers, we are also pleased about the major expansions by existing Madison Avenue businesses during this period, including Christian Louboutin (965 Madison Avenue), Di Donna Gallery (744 Madison Avenue), Giuseppe Zanotti (806 Madison Avenue), and Jimmy Choo (699 Madison Avenue). The March 2016, inauguration of the Met Breuer museum at 945 Madison Avenue was an important moment in the City’s cultural history, and shall create countless memorable experiences for the New Yorkers and travelers enjoying the museum’s exhibitions and public programming.”
