Jason Brotter from South Bronx

Green jobs along with an entirely new industry is coming to the South Bronx. Several sites have already been evaluated for the construction of an Air Car plant and showroom facility. Bronx Motor Works in conjunction with Motor Development International and Zero Pollution Motors will build the first U.S. plant this year and the fist Air Cars will roll out of the South Bronx in 2010.
