There's a lot going on in the September 2023 edition of Diamond District Monthly. It starts on the front page with the story of NYC Mayor Eric Adams' push to finally "take the shades" off the city streets with his "Get Sheds Down" initiative, directed at removing as much sidewalk scaffolding as possible. This includes policy changes that will minimize the amount of time these persistent, seemingly perpetual eyesores are left standing.
Another important report centers on a sneaky city program to separate New York retailers from their hard-earned cash by paying off private citizens to snitch on shop owners who play recorded music in their stores. This program is out of control, and it's a valuable read for those hoping to avoid unfair fines. Plus, a revealing editorial on Page 2. All this and much more.
