Keeping Union Square Clean & Safe
Making sure the district's sidewalks and streets clean and safe is a top priority. USP's Clean Team scours the district seven days a week, emptying trash bins, removing graffiti from gates and property walls as well as illegal signage and flyers from street furniture. Power washing takes place in the spring and summer, and throughout the winter, they clear the district’s sidewalks and intersections of snow and ice.
Working closely with our partners in law enforcement, our Public Safety Team ensures that the Union Square district continues to be a safe and welcoming environment, and addresses quality-of-life offenses that affect the area as they occur. They are the eyes and ears of the district, reporting unlawful activity, connecting those in need with services, and providing information and assistance to passersby.
