Emily Baime Michaels

WHY? Emily is a tireless advocate for the Midtown neighborhood. She understands that economic growth and quality of life go hand-in-hand and is focused on community partnerships that improve streetscape infrastructure, public safety and increased services/amenities. Some of the fun things she’s instituted while at MBA include the year-round Farmers Market (which will include a pop-up dog park in the spring) and enlisting local artists to beautify trash cans and utility boxes. She’s tireless and fearless, and in her “free time” is a total foodie who has her own cookbook and tasting classes.
