Alliance for Downtown New York Annual Meeting


Alliance for Down Town New York Annual Meeting

On May 12th, the Alliance for Downtown New York, the business improvement district established in support of Lower Manhattan and on whose Board of Directors I serve, held its annual meeting. As part of the program, Sheldon Silver, the Speaker of the New York State Assembly, was awarded (so deservingly) The David Rockefeller Lower Manhattan Leadership Award. It was so thrilling to be a part of this special ceremony as David Rockefeller, (who is approaching his 96th birthday), personally bestowed the award to Sheldon Silver. To witness this incredibly momentous and historical occasion as we approach the 10th anniversary of the 911 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center was indeed such a privilege and an honor.
