The city has named a successor to outgoing Deputy Mayor for Economic Development, Daniel Doctoroff. Robert Lieber, who has been president of the city's Economic Development Corp. for the past year, will take over Doctoroff's position on Jan. 8th.
Doctoroff was instrumental in designing the city's plan for the redevelopment of Coney Island. In the coming year, we'll see how Lieber goes about trying to make this plan a reality.
