Will New York City become a federally designated manufacturing community?
US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand toured New York City advanced manufacturing hubs to promote her federal legislation that would continue president Obama's official designation of Manufacturing Communities. In our work with New York City Economic Development on the Futureworks initiative, we took a look at Gellibrand's act; what it means for the country and how New Yorkes can get involved. We also got a chance to catch up with our friend at Manufacture New York, CEO Bob Bland, after Sen. Gillibrand stopped by in Sunset Park.
