Modeled after Schneps Media’s wildly successful Bethpage Best of the Boro and Bethpage Best of Long Island competitions, the Bethpage Best of the City program gives you the power to choose the best businesses in Manhattan —  “east side, west side, uptown, downtown, all around the town!”

Through the Bethpage Best of the City campaign, you’ll nominate (and later vote for) Manhattan businesses for a wide variety of categories. There will be only one first-place winner in each category crowned BETHPAGE BEST OF THE CITY.

The Best of campaigns in Queens and Long Island have proven to be enormously successful for the businesses involved, and the Bethpage Best of the City figures to do wonders for the businesses that take part in the competition.

Schneps Media, publisher of The Villager, Downtown Express, Chelsea Now, Manhattan Express, New York Family, Gay City News and several other local outlets, utilizes all of their media assets to promote the Program including the nomination period, voting round and listing of all the winners.

Each business that wins gets the right to utilize the “Best Of” logo/mark that is promoted in a tremendous amount of marketing including plaques, banners, print advertisements, digital marketing, social media marketing, outdoor advertising, email signatures, business cards and so much more.

Recognition means the world to the winners, and along with that distinction comes a great deal of pride. The Bethpage Best of the City’s impact is undeniable—it touches hearts and changes lives with these unique and distinguished marks of excellence.
