The Broadway Mall Association (BMA) is a non-profit that stewards, advocates, and cares for the 5-mile environmental resource in the heart of upper Manhattan. The 83 verdant malls from 70th to 168th Street stretch from the Upper West Side through Harlem to Washington Heights. In addition to upgrading the 10.6 acres of malls along Broadway, BMA installs winter lighting and stages world class public art exhibitions that reflect the distinct, diverse communities of the area, and engage both residents and visitors alike.
