Restaurateur and attorney are new co-chairpersons of Union Sq. BID
The Union Square Partnership last week elected Danny Meyer and Eric Seiler as co-chairpersons of the partnership board of directors to succeed Eugene R. McGrath, board chairperson for the past seven years.
Meyer, owner of Union Sq. Cafe and founder of Union Square Hospitality Group, and Seiler, attorney and founder of the law firm Friedman Kaplan Seiler & Adelman, have served for 10 years on the executive committee of the partnership, which runs the citys oldest business improvement district.
McGrath, chairperson of Con Edison since 1990, has been a member of the partnership and the local development corporation that organized the BID for more than 20 years.
Jim Gabbe continues as president of the BID board and Karen Shaw continues as executive director of the partnership.
