New York City and the entire State were and continue to be significantly impacted by COVID from both a health and economic point of view. We all hope that a vaccine is coming within the next few months, but the end of the Pandemic, in many ways, will be just the beginning of the revival of the economy particularly in New York City. So to touch on the topic of business and the economy we have Kathryn Wylde as our guest, who is an internationally known expert in housing, economic development and urban policy.
She is the current President and CEO of the nonprofit, Partnership for New York City, the city’s leading business organization founded by David Rockefeller in 1979.
In this episode, we discussed the Recovery for NYC, Wylde’s and other NYC leaders Letter to Di Blasio, the fallout of Amazon and LIC, Should NYC schools remain open during Covid, The Brooklyn Waterfront Development and Best Examples of a partnership between business, community and government.
