The Plastic Bag Store would not be possible without the generous support of Mark Siffin, CEO of Maefield Development, which owns 20 Times Square.
For more than a decade, Siffin has delivered passionate support for the Times Square community and the Alliance. As a life-long artist himself, Siffin consistently embraces the importance of young artists being presented to the 127MM-person pedestrian audience that Times Square delivers every year. 20 Times Square is at the epicenter of this activity and serves as the show case stage in our daily celebration of our shared humanity.
“47th and 7th is a corner where the arts have lived for over a century,” said Tim Tompkins, President of the Times Square Alliance. “Mark Siffin’s significant commitment here supports Broadway, the live arts and the visual arts in Times Square. These are the life blood of our community, and they also happen to enrich the largest concentration of consumers in the world. There is no better place to democratize art than Times Square. In his support, Siffin drives our mission, understanding that innovative culture and vibrant commerce are the essential elements that make Times Square one of the most enduring entertainment, hospitality and retail destinations in the world.”
