      Either way unless he has a solid project that creates a product or service that will appeal to a mass he is going to have a tough time keeping this business afloat without some other type of funding....especially in a shop where you need expensive equipment.

      It said in the article something about building race motors I'm sorry but you ain't doing that with a drill press from sears but I am sure he is well aware of that.

      Interesting to see how this thing ends up.

      Also I would love for NYC to have a road course......

      It's enough to get started. I'm not saying the dude is going to become the premier racing shop in the Northeast, but there's a growing initiative to get more and more businesses and jobs back into NYC and NYS.

      First you need to invest it in cocaine... ask this fella...



      His money came from the Irish IIRC.

      If you're a "system" bank you can turn it into about $850k with a finger snap claiming future interest profits without actually earning them. But you'd need some kind of piece of paper and a fancy office to indicate that you are in fact a systemic banker.

      The bonus might just be a gift to make sure he doesn't go somewhere else with his private funds. If I were Mr. Government I'd demand some job securities in return.

      They would have to clean off the graffiti hours before the shoot. Clean walls don't last long in Brooklyn. Especially industrial type buildings. They'd be smart to pay a few local talents to mural their walls first.
