The first-ever Atlantic Avenue Extravaganza presented by PKPR client, Atlantic Avenue Business Improvement District, was a resounding success. Celebrating the launch of the BID, a coalition of three hundred businesses along one of Brooklyn’s most famous boulevards hit the streets… literally…bringing their business outside!
A jam-packed lineup of special events, performances, demonstrations, tastings, tours, games, and more brought Atlantic Avenue’s celebrated commerce, culture, and community to life.
PKPR made sure that the streets were bustling by securing coverage in Time Out New York’s Best of the Fests, amNY, Flavorpill , New York Post’s Hot Picks, New York Times, Brooklyn Exposed, Brooklyn Bugle, New York’s Grub Street, and many more!
