Meet the new Big Button.

On Thursday, February 16, 2023,  Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine and City Council Member Erik Bottcher joined  Garment District Alliance Vice Chair Steve Kaufman and President Barbara Blair to cut the ribbon on the GDA’s new Big Button sculpture on Seventh Avenue at 39th Street.  Other dignitaries in attendance included NYCDOT Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez and  NYC Small Business Services Commissioner Kevin Kim, as well as representatives from Hines, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Local Projects, and UAP. 

Before the festivities began, more than 150 invited guests enjoyed  hot chocolate, coffee and custom Big Button cookies, while Diverse Concert Artists entertained the mingling crowd.  Shortly after 11:00 am, invited speakers made brief remarks before grabbing their giant scissors and cutting the ribbon to officially introduce the new Big Button to the world.
