About the Northalsted Business Alliance

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 80 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.

Northalsted Events

The Northalsted Business Alliance hosts two of the city’s most popular events—Chicago Pride Fest® and Northalsted Market Days®—which bring thousands of people to our neighborhood. The Northalsted Business Alliance-sponsored Halloween on Halsted parade also invite the community to gather and experience Northalsted.

Neighborhood Beautification and Safety

The Northalsted Business Alliance works diligently to maintain a safe and beautiful neighborhood for residents, business owners and visitors. 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.

Commitment to Community

Strengthening community is a priority. The Northalsted Business Alliance has proudly supported The Center on Halsted since its inception and was one of its first major contributors. A focal point for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) community of Chicago, The Center on Halsted serves the community’s diverse social, recreational, cultural and social service needs. In addition, the Northalsted Business Alliance regularly surveys area residents on our activities and programs to confirm that our efforts are benefiting and appreciated by our local community.
