In the past several years, New Rochelle has seen unprecedented economic growth. The City’s Department of Development
, working in concert with the Business Improvement District
(BID) and the New Rochelle Industrial Development Agency (IDA), has attracted development that has changed the face of the downtown area. An influx of residents in new luxury housing has led to increased business for retailers and a boom in new restaurants with international menus.
New Rochelle’s economic resurgence is evident in small businesses as well. The BID’s innovative storefront and awnings program, and a façade improvement program have restored the historic art deco architecture to numerous Main Street buildings. The New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce
provides a variety of services to its members working closely with the City of New Rochelle and the BID.
