The Brooklyn “Renaissance”

The Brooklyn Renaissance

Ever wondered what Brooklyn real estate pundits and their minions talk about during a $125.00 a head breakfast? Well, gentle readers, the wait is over. Thanks to an anonymous tipster I have a twenty page transcript of yesterday’s “Brooklyn Renaissance” breakfast at Industry City. It is quite something. “Innovation Alley”, anyone?

UPDATE, October 1st, 12:43 PM: For those of you who may be interested in listening to an audio transcript of these proceedings, here you go!

This item was brought to my attention by my comrade over at Queens Crap. I encourage each and every one of you, gentle readers, to give it a look-see. As you are doing so please bear the following in mind:

  • Not only is the business in question located in the 33rd City Council district.
  • It is located a short walk from Councilman Levin’s office.

A. Very. Short. Walk.

I have to wonder what he thinks of this. Maybe an intrepid journalist reading this tome will ask him?

P.S.: Elsewhere one very bright individual brought up a rather interesting question. Do not the operators Jessie’s Deli understand that they face the possibility the(ir) guests may consume/quaff their edibles/drinkables? I for one think this is a very valid question. Maybe they are factoring that in via the rate/deposit?
