Enter Brooklyn Say “Oh Wow”

Brooklyn is of course the home of Chabad, Williamsburg and said to be the birthplace of so much Jewish culture.  The “modern” Brooklyn continues to evolve with Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill and of course the Brooklyn Nets with Jay-Z prodding them along.

Many have played key roles in the development of Brooklyn and along with that development its helped the Jewish community to grow as real estate has succeeded.  Israeli-born New York resident Ron Hershco worked closely with Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz to break ground on 306 Gold Street and 313 Gold Street to help transform Downtown Brooklyn.

“These two buildings represent the first step toward achieving the vision of a new Downtown Brooklyn, with apartments, grocery stores, retail shops, and open space, and foot traffic to restaurants, art galleries, and the amenities that every American city’s downtown offers,” said Borough President Markowitz.

When one now enters Brooklyn from the Manhattan Bridge they are able to say “Oh Wow”, and when they leave Brooklyn shall still say “Oy vey,” remarked Marty Markowitz.

Ron Hershco also completed the 303-unit Oro Condominium – and remains a very generous donor to Chabad worldwide, as well as other important causes. G-d bless America.
