2016 Monkey Businesses

(2017 Monkey Business sign ups coming in August)

Monkey Lowdown

Over 200 LED-lit monkeys brighten Phinney and Greenwood each year from 59th to 87th, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.

The monkeys, along with the Phinney Center’s air raid tower GloCone, were the brainchildren of the PNA Business Group and brought to life in 2014 with the help of the Greenwood Arts Council, a grant from the city’s Department of Neighborhoods and hundreds of volunteer hours. (Check out this video of a monkey being born!)

Why monkeys? Because they’re fun and unique, and they complement WildLights at the Woodland Park Zoo, draw visitors to the neighborhood and, through their fostering fees, generate money the business group uses to sustain the troop and seed other community projects.

If you're a PNA Business Group member, your business is on Phinney or Greenwood between 59th and 87th or on 85th near Greenwood, and you'd like to foster a monkey in 2017, email biz@phinneycenter.org.
