Bleecker Area Merchants' and Residents' Association (BAMRA) welcomes you to the heart of Greenwich Village
BAMRA was formed in 1992 to serve the residents and merchants from Houston Street to West Third Street and from Mercer Street to Avenue of the Americas. An all-volunteer not-for-profit organization, we provide a wide range of services and support for our neighbors and businesses.
