Welcome to the neighborhood. The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce snipped the ribbon on its new offices on June 7.

More than 100 guests were treated to a breakfast sponsored by National Grid. Well-wishers included Borough President Markowitz, (hey, there was breakfast involved), Assemblymen Joe Lentol (D–Greenpoint), Alec Brook-Krasney (D–Brighton Beach), Rafael Espinal (D–Queens), and Joan Millman (D–Cobble Hill), state Sen. Simcha Felder (D–Midwood), and Councilmen Vincent Gentile (D–Bay Ridge) and Stephen Levin (D–Boerum Hill).

Also present were Chamber president and C.E.O. Carlo Scissura; chairwoman Denise Arbesu; Kathryn Wylde, president and C.E.O. of Partnership for New York City; and Gregg Bishop, deputy commissioner of N.Y.C. Small Business Services.

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce boasts more than 1,300 members, and is growing each and every day, said Standing O pal Carlo. It figures the staff needed bigger digs to help serve more Brooklynites.

Carlo thanked chairwoman Denise Arbesu, as well as Stan Markowitz, Josh Muss, and others involved in the grand move.

Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce [335 Adams St. in Downtown, (718) 875–1000].
