Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Statement on City’s Democratic National Convention Bid

June 6, 2014

“All over the world Brooklyn is known for being on the forefront of the next big thing, and no party could pick a better backdrop for a national convention.  Home to a new generation of doers and makers, Brooklyn represents the up-from-the-bootstraps American ideal better than any other city in the nation. The Barclays Center is the hottest arena in the nation, and we have the culture, facilities and media savvy to make this the greatest convention any party has ever held.”
