The BBB took my head shot at the

Write, Rhyme and Repeat event in June 2019 in Hempstead.

Beth and her staff are professional and

great at taking pictures.  Even afterwards, BBB continues to reach out to me and other members of The BBB to help us promote our businesses, whether it is posting a promo on social media, review, or surveying us to see what our needs are as business owners.  

Anyone who has a business in the NYC area should be part of The Big Black Book of New York City.  BBB is amazing!
