Warren Bell in story from The New York Times (July 20, 2008)
Double Edge to Brooklyn’s Success
Many of the survivors are makers of specialty foods, like Amy’s Cookies in Red Hook, which sells tea cookies to Dean & DeLuca markets, and Bagels by Bell in Canarsie, one of the biggest bakers of bialys in the country. Warren Bell, who employs more than 30 people, said he had given up after a few years of trying to find an affordable building for his growing bakery and had decided to seek a variance that would allow him to add a second floor.
“I could move out to Long Island and send the product here and distribute it out to my customers from here,” said Mr. Bell, who lives in Bergen Beach. But, he added, “I have ties here. I like saying we produce in Brooklyn.”
Robert Nelson, Jeffrey Roseman Featured in Real Estate Weekly (June 25, 2008)
The June 25, 2008 issue of Real Estate Weekly (Manhattan) was practically a Ma-Ho-Ge photo spread. Well, actually there were six photos of Robert Nelson (Nelson Management & Global One ASB Fund) and two more of Jeffrey Roseman (Newmark Knight Frank). Both Nelson and Roseman (Ma-Ho-Ge, 1974 to 1977), who came to Silver Lake from Camp Alamar, were recognized for their contributions to the real estate industry.
Congrats to both of them, who were also my bunkmates/teammates in 1977 (Waiters).
Below is some background about Nelson’s recognition by the Brooklyn Philharmonic:
