On today, International Women's Day, the BID is excited to kick off a month of highlighting the women past and present who make our neighborhood a special, one-of-a-kind place. This is the first of three special Women's History Month newsletters, so be on the lookout for more!
Get to Know the Women of NoHo

This March is Women's History Month, and we're joining over 30 other neighborhoods from around NYC in the #SmallBusinessWonderWoman Campaign to highlight our City's women-owned and operated businesses. We'll be updating our social media feeds regularly and showing off the women of NoHo, so make sure to follow us.

We asked these women what makes them a #SmallBusinessWonderWoman and why they chose to locate in NoHo. Click on their photos to learn more. 
April Barton of Suite 303

"If you can make it here in NoHo, you can make it anywhere. I feel I’m a small business wonder women because although I've had hardships and setbacks and this year was shut down due to COVID, I’ve risen every time since 1995. No one said it would be easy, but it’s worth it!

I love NoHo because it still holds on to the heart of old New York - not too polished but rich in character. Not to sound trite but it is the coolest neighborhood in New York
Anna Sheffield of Anna Sheffield

"I can honestly say it's a talent of my mom's which I merely try to emulate- which is to be fierce but loving with graceful and daring tenacity. No small feat! But I try. 

NoHo is a small but incredibly special slice of Manhattan - from the historic Bowery and Liz Christie garden to Il Buco and Atla, Indochine and Astor Place, there's magic to be found on every block. Including ours, on Bleecker!
Maria Cornejo of Zero + Maria Cornejo

"My Zero + Maria Cornejo team is really what makes us #SmallBusinessWonderWomen.

NoHo is like a little jewel of creative people and places and feels like a real New York City community amongst the madness.
Marisa Seifan of Honeybrains

"Delicately balancing motherhood and work while also remaining calm when faced with the daily unexpected obstacles of running a small business. 

I love the small town feel of NoHo where you get to really know your fellow business owners and regular customers.

Kerry Fitzmaurice of Pure Grit BBQ

"I launched Pure Grit BBQ at the beginning of 2020. I wanted to create a BBQ brand that appealed to plant-based eaters, infused femininity into a predominately male category and of course, I wanted it to be produced in NYC. I was able to accomplish this all while sheltering in place and helping my daughter with high school. Pretty much every woman I know is a wonder woman. We are strong, tough and we persevere. For me, I guess you could say, I have pure grit.
Gwenolee Zürcher of Zürcher Gallery

"In my exhibition program, I am committed to presenting work by under-recognized women artists of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries who have been overlooked in the past. My project, 11 Women of Spirit, is a satellite fair to the Armory Show and Frieze art fairs in New York. This initiative offers contemporary women artists a platform to present their work and meet art-lovers and collectors directly.  I love my space in NoHo, because it was previously the studio 
of sculptor Joel Shapiro, and has the feeling of many downtown art spaces of the sixties, seventies and eighties when SoHo was New York's premiere gallery neighborhood. This makes it a perfect setting for many works I exhibit from that period." 
Welcome to NoHo, Heywear

There's a new place for eyewear in NoHo, and it's out to change the optical industry as we know it. For a flat rate ranging from $50 - $150, you'll get new frames and lenses, plus an optical exam, regardless of how high your prescription is. Your lenses will be cut and glasses assembled onsite, ready to go by the time you're ready to leave. Make sure to stop by and welcome them to the neighborhood! Learn more about this new business here
NoHo Juice Bar is Village Preservation's March 2020 Business of the Month
