In the City, business adversaries want to open next-door to each other, not apart. We begin at NYC's legendary Diamond District -- 47th Street at Sixth Avenue -- where 90% of our diamonds enter the country, brought in by the 2,000-plus businesses that operate here.

Born in the Bronx, I've been dazzled by this City since my parents used to take me everywhere from the Lower East Side kosher restaurants to the Statue of Liberty (a landmark very few New Yorkers actually visit). And as a newspaper reporter, publisher of a community newspaper, and former real estate agent, I use all my experience to explore, investigate and understand the workings of this dynamic City.
