Take a moment to recognize the Doorman that always greets you at the end of a long day or the super who keeps your building running 24/7. Nominations are now open. Simply tell us what makes the building service worker special.

Now in its 12th year, the Building Service Workers Awards are hosted annually by Straus Media Manhattan, publisher Our Town/Eastsider, Our Town Downtown/Downtowner, Chelsea News/Chelsea Clinton News, and The Spirit/Westsider and 32 BJ.

NOMINATE

Do you know a great doorman, porter or handyman where you live? Is there an office cleaner, security officer or maintenance worker who helps make life a little easier at work? How about a school, theater, event or stadium cleaner who deserves recognition?

In honor of the upcoming 2018 Building Service Awards, Our Town/Eastsider, Our Town Downtown/Downtowner, Chelsea News/Chelsea Clinton News, and The Spirit/Westsider and 32BJ SEIU — the property workers union — want to shine a spotlight on the people who keep our buildings running smoothly. We want people in the neighborhood to share photos of your favorite building service workers so we can possibly feature them in an upcoming edition of Our Town/Eastsider, Our Town Downtown/Downtowner, Chelsea News/Chelsea Clinton News, and The Spirit/Westsider.

So tell us who’s gone above and beyond to make residents’, tenants’ and New Yorkers’ lives better!
