“The borough of Brooklyn is truly an innovation hub, where builders and designers can put their craft to use and enhance the city that surrounds them,” said Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Carlo A. Scissura.   

 

“We are honored to participate and play host to the celebration, and we are so grateful for the generous support of the Brooklyn Chamber and the entire community as the Kings made its return to Flatbush Avenue this year,” said Matthew Wolf, executive director of the Kings Theatre.
