As the Crain's In$ider reported on Friday the Neighborhood Retail Alliance's Matt Lipsky has left his post as communications director to go to Duke Law School in the fall. Needless to say he will be sorely missed on both a personal as well as a professional level.
Matt was not only solely responsible for the creation of this blog but was also the point man on so much of what the Alliance has done on the BTM, Wal-Mart in the city, food waste disposers and the formation of the Brooklyn Sports Alliance. He not only did this work with great skill but managed to add the kind of good will that and personal charm that he clearly got exclusively from his mother.
Good luck Matt!
