On Wednesday, May 26th, JNF's Real Estate Circle held its third lecture series event "From Blight to Bright: New York City's Changing Landscape" with Seth Pinsky, President of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. The evening was hosted by Alan Suna, CEO of Silvercup Studios and Jeffrey Levine, President of Levine Builders/Douglaston Development and JNF World Chairman's Council member, at Silvercup Studios in Long Island City.
Pinsky, who was recently named one of Craine's 40 Under 40, discussed the opportunities and challenges facing the economic development of New York City today. He shared his insights on reviving blighted areas, specifically Hunter's Point and Willets Point of Queens and the burgeoning economic sectors in the five boroughs. Event Chair, Jodi Siegel-Stein, Associate at Wachtel Masyr and member of the Real Estate Circle, tied Pinsky's comments back into JNF's work in Beersheva and its emphasis on economic and community development in the region.
