Since 1980, Northalsted Business Alliance (NBA) has worked collectively to enhance the entertainment district known as Boystown. Representing over 100 In & Proud businesses, NBA is recognized by the City of Chicago, national media outlets and residents for its leadership of advancing economic vitality and quality of life for the total community. To this end, NBA provides programs and services that will increase investment, security, opportunity and activity in our district.
Through Special Service Area #18, the Northalsted Business Alliance’s street beautification program provides regular street and sidewalk cleaning, as well as the maintenance of our seasonal planters. Together with the Chicago Police Department, the Northalsted Business Alliance also administers the Special Service Area #18 Security Rebate Program, which encourages businesses and residents to make their properties safe and secure.
Strengthening community is a priority. The Northalsted Business Alliance proudly supports local charities and other non-profits through event driven programming and strives to set the standard for giving-back for our community. Partnering with The Legacy Project, The Alliance endeavors to educate, promote, and foster a positive community through charity, family programming, and neighborhood awareness.
The Northalsted Business Alliance works cooperatively to maintain a diverse, safe and thriving shopping and entertainment district. In 1980, a small group of retailers in a four-block area along Halsted Street joined forces to promote the street and improve business conditions.
Since its inception, the Northalsted Business Alliance has grown to represent more than 100 businesses along North Halsted Street from Barry Street to West Irving Park Road. The Association has been recognized by the media, the City of Chicago and local residents as a major force in the community, championing positive change and growth.
