Quotes

"You always have a certain amount of fear coming back. It gets more difficult as you feel you have a lot to prove."
...Charles Schumer said Brooklyn's renaissance from decades of urban blight to world-class destination was illustrative of the "American dream" and "knocks anything that Pennsylvania, Ohio or Arizona could say.”"
"This new hotel is a poignant moment in the much-heralded transformation of Downtown Brooklyn," said Gene Kaufman, founder of GKA. "This full-service Holiday Inn, featuring premium amenities such as a swimming pool, first-class dining venues and event spaces as well as a duplex penthouse presidential suite, is a clear sign that Brooklyn has become an international destination in its own right."
"Pennsylvania and New York are both blue states, that is true," he said, a reference to another applicant, Philadelphia. "But the way you win elections these days is by appealing to voters. The best way to appeal to voters in America? They want a bright future. They want the American dream symbolized by the lady in our harbor to burn brightly. There is no place that says the American dream burns brightly better than Brooklyn."
