The Mayor’s Corner

NEW York City was once one of the great manufacturing capitals of the world, until many of those businesses migrated to other parts of the globe where they were able to find cheaper land and cheaper labor.

ON Oct. 24, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and I attended the first ever city-sponsored food manufacturer business expo and networking event where more than 100 New York City based immigrant food manufacturing businesses connected with brokers, buyers and wholesalers from the food industry.

CREATING a greenway encircling Manhattan’s 32-mile waterfront has been a dream that’s bedeviled New York City for more than two decades.

SMALL businesses have always provided the heartbeat of our city’s economy.

DEPUTY Mayor for Economic Development Robert K. Steel and Small Business Services Commissioner Robert W. Walsh and I announced the formation of two new Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) — the Atlantic Avenue BID in Brooklyn and the Chinatown Business Improvement District in Manhattan.
