Commercial District Needs Assessments

The Commercial District Needs Assessment (CDNA) highlights the existing business landscape, consumer characteristics, physical environment, and unique character of the commercial corridors and local businesses that make up the identity of each neighborhood. Each CDNA is completed in partnership with local community-based organizations, and includes analysis of the storefront and retail mix, door-to-door merchant surveys, consumer and shopper surveys, and in-depth inventory of streetscape conditions that affect the shopping experience.

The following CDNAs identify the needs and opportunities for local neighborhood revitalization, with recommendations for merchant organizing, public programming, district marketing and branding, streetscape enhancements, business support services, and other quality of life improvements that can be funded by Neighborhood 360° Grants, Avenue NYC grants, or other organizations.
