Richard Pyatt with Real Estate Commissioner Carl Madonick in a monthly series.

Begin by discussing the prospected establishment of an industrial complex in the old Brooklyn Navy Yard. There is a training program, which is the beginning of the complex, hopefully. They discuss the program at some length.

They discuss the moratorium on sale of Staten Island property. They speak with a member of the sales division, Mr. Oscar Griffin. A very important point brought up is the sale by the city of land which must be bought back in many cases for much more for public use. The commissioner states that less selling of possible future sites which might be of public use is a necessity.
