Mayor Bloomberg Extends “We Are Made In NY” Campaign to NYC Tech and Manufacturing Companies
About an hour ago, Mayor Bloomberg gave a press conference at BuzzFeed HQ to announce that he was extending the “We Are Made in NY” campaign, previously used for NYC films and television productions, to manufacturing and tech companies as well.
The first half hour of the video is just pre-conference setup, so I’ve cued it up to 33 minutes in, where the Mayor begins speaking about the new initiative.
