Barclays Center and Partners Will Use City's Workforce1 Services and Give Preference to NYCHA Residents Nets Corporate Offices Now Located at MetroTech in Downtown Brooklyn Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today joined Forest City Ratner Companies Chairman and CEO Bruce Ratner to announce a plan to fill approximately 2,000 jobs at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn using the City's Workforce1 services. Priority hiring for the jobs, which will include full- and part-time positions, will be for residents of Brooklyn Community Boards 2, 3, 6 and 8, graduates of Brooklyn United for Innovative Local Development's training program, and New York City Housing Authority residents of Ingersoll, Whitman, Farragut, Atlantic Terminal, Wyckoff Gardens, Warren Street, Lafayette Gardens and Gowanus Houses. Job fairs will be held in June, July and August in locations near the arena to fill the majority of the positions. Beginning next week, Forest City and Barclays Center partners, including AEG, which will assist in the management of operations for the Barclays Center, and Levy Restaurants, which will oversee all food services, will meet with local community boards and elected officials to discuss hiring plans. The Mayor made the announcement at the Barclays Center construction site and also was joined by Borough President Marty Markowitz, Department of Small Business Services Commissioner Robert W. Walsh, New York City Housing Authority Chairman John Rhea, Brooklyn United for Innovative Local Development President James Caldwell and Charlene Nimmons, Executive Director of Public Housing Communities, Inc. “Tens of thousands of people will soon come to the world-class Barclays Center, and that means more economic growth, more tax revenue, and more jobs,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Local residents should have every opportunity to get these jobs, and we are working closely with Forest City Ratner to make sure that happens.” “We are very excited that we are close to opening and even closer to hiring,” said Bruce Ratner. “From the start, we've been focused on how Barclays Center and the larger Atlantic Yards project can provide opportunity for the people of Brooklyn. Over the next few weeks and months, we will be posting approximately 2,000 jobs, everything from food service to security and ticketing, as we prepare for the arena's grand opening on September 28th.” The Nets also announced that they have completed their corporate relocation to Brooklyn. The Nets, together with the sales and marketing team for Barclays Center, have 150 employees working in their corporate offices at MetroTech in Downtown Brooklyn. As of last week there were 837 construction workers on the site, including 442 from New York City and 186 from Brooklyn. In addition, contracting purchases to date on the arena have exceeded $550 million, with 16.3 percent going to minority-owned business enterprises and 6.3 percent going to women-owned business enterprises. As many as 800 people will work at the arena at any given event, and it is expected that there will be more than 220 events a year at Barclays Center. Each employee will be trained by the Disney Institute which, as part of its comprehensive and customized approach to Barclays Center, will offer unique experiential services and best practice training for arena staff. Once the arena has opened, Forest City Ratner will report quarterly on the number of employees and the neighborhoods that they are from. “Under Mayor Bloomberg's leadership, Downtown Brooklyn is thriving, and the opening of the Barclays Center this September will be another catalyst for long-term growth,” Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Robert K. Steel said. “This project will also have an immediate impact, with 2,000 jobs created in a matter of months.” “Bringing the Nets to Brooklyn means more than exciting, in-your-face basketball with a Brooklyn attitude – it will create 2,000 sorely-needed full- and part-time opportunities for jobseekers, with priority placement for Brooklynites in the neighborhoods and NYCHA housing surrounding Barclays Center,” said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. “Kudos to Mayor Bloomberg, Bruce Ratner, Commissioner Walsh, Chairman Rhea and all of their partners for ensuring that the Nets and Barclays Center provide not just 'lobs' – but jobs.” “We will work closely with FCRC, BUILD and the Housing Authority to ensure that local residents know about these jobs and benefit from this project,” said Department of Small Business Services Commissioner Walsh. “The arena will provide a great diversity of employment, which means greater opportunity for a wide range of people.” “The real stars of Barclays Center will be the NYCHA residents who are working there to provide a world-class entertainment experience for their neighbors, families, friends and others who visit the arena,” said NYCHA Chairman Rhea. “New York's economy gets stronger every time we put another New Yorker back to work,” said President, CEO, & Commissioner of Empire State Development Kenneth Adams. “With nearly two thousand new jobs being filled with the help of the State Department of Labor's Jobs Express Website, we are creating an extraordinary employment opportunity that will make an immediate and lasting impact in the lives of families and communities that need it most. Under the leadership of Governor Cuomo, and working with our partners in New York City government and the private sector, we are building the foundation for a brighter economic future for all New Yorkers.” Scheduled to open in September 2012, Barclays Center will be a major sports and entertainment venue in the heart of Brooklyn.

Significant residential development has occurred since the mid-1980s stimulated by the city's "Ten-Year Housing Plan". This in addition to the 90s job growth and a sharp reduction in crime has steadily risen the quality of life in The Bronx. Signifying its comeback from the decline of the 1970s, in 1997 the Bronx was designated an All America City by the National Civic League. The New York Times reported that "construction cranes have become the borough's new visual metaphor, replacing the window decals of the 1980s in which pictures of potted plants and drawn curtains were placed in the windows of abandoned buildings." Between 2002 and June 2007, 33,687 new housing units were built or were under way and $4.799 billion has been invested in new housing. In the first six months of 2007 alone 5,187 residential units were scheduled to be completed. Chains such as Target, Staples and Marshalls have opened stores in the Bronx.
In 2008, the U.S. Census Bureau estimated that the borough's population on July 1, 2007 was 1,373,659, which ranks fourth of the five boroughs. . ( see source )
The Bronx is actually the historic site of Yankee Stadium, and thus a major Baseball community second to none the world over. A area of sport legends real city of nightlife, where brony atheletic types vie for popularity for awaiting ladies of choice at hiden nightlife venues proclaim their sports exploits and showing courtesies to those who wish to enter their various worlds of The Bronx.
Opera, Music, Dance, Theatres, Movies, Multi Media Shows, and possibly the best food on Earth, even if you want it koshered too, is all here too. So here is just taste, view, and gentle reflection of this great city.
This report will be updated once the 2010 census is published.
The presents of creative fashions styles within our civilizations' and times' clearly indicates a real central value of not only a sense of personal discovery - mixed - with actual visual creations, but a more nimble and gentler attitudes within ones own intellegence and psyche. For me its a real look into the sociocultural expectations of women who are the main object of the best of fashions designs and thus giving more real context, or a some what uninvited voyueristic probe into female socioenvironmental instincts and ego - centric self - reflected personas. This later trigger the development of Roger's Fashions and Trendsetters News .
Absolutely fascinating, as not only the interplay of female ego centric persona expectations are played in virtual live near like stage performances in what she most desires to wear, --- such as in Fashions and Trendsetters for example --- but how she is able to likewise correctly judge for her self what can make her look good. This has brought me to the additional attentions of its International InterCultural Communications applications and as there are female - centric [ relative ids ] undergound means in which fashions are able to communicate both solidarities, and commonalites, especially in female common emergency issues [ such a trafficking in women, sexual assault, rape and death of children during human conflicts ] across borders, cultures, and societies. At the heart of this is the likewise expectations of social and cultural power, and thus at times central leaders have appeared within the truer history of women, and not the public relations dogma of the feminist movement.
It is here where Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel comes into full view, as well as her personal attraction to power, especially powerful men, which during WWII cause her a lot of trouble. None the less, what she was able to do, and not with standing contemporary feminist of her time and era, was to give women a fashions sense of their own sociocultural rights to self-determination. What the feminist historians all have missed is what were the women who were demonstrating after 1910 wore - " Little Black Dresses" , and more female oriented dress fashions as well designed by and for women.
Did this give an ego boost?
Certainly it did. And it is here where the perception is open and one is able to look more deeply into each female persona as one comes in contact with women the world over. It is how the choice in what one wants to wear, and ethnocentricity what one has to wear on traditional occassions, and their expectations which gives more vivid testiments of their own realization and control of personal values - even strangely in Islamic states. Just as much as there are endless shades of creative fashions designs, their existance, and their later sales successes have fully indicated that the designers have likewise discovered years before I did, what is exactly involved in females rights to choice and the most powerful self-advocacy contained within their future expectations of themselves; and all relevant fantasies themselves- which includes as power sociocultural image fantasy respectfully to their sexual fantasies as well. Men who appreciate these choice values in which women have in fashions, the more central his, or err ours full commitments to being men are manisfested. One of the immediate impact is that we, as men become more gentle in our personal issues with those who we are enjoined, as well as those women in which we woo. A kiss of her hand, how light fabirc gently helps to shape her lovely and at times seductive forms propells us to listen more careful, and learn not to rush, especially her.

One last note: I did not come up with the term H - E - T - E - R - O - P - H - O - B - I - C until I took the entired required core of study of the Women's Studies, Buffalo State College. The term was applied to those males who were unable to communicate with women, but only were able to push an agenda contrary to both his and her own interests - that which exist beyond sex itself. So becoming a man has a different conotation.
