Foundry Opens its Doors to the Bronx
It was a sunny Wednesday Afternoon, as the Foundry opened its doors to stakeholders within the community. From the Foundry’s 7th floor, north-facing windows, Father McShane pointed out to Montefiore Medical Center, 1.5 miles away yet easily visible as the host of Fordham’s WFUV radio station antenna. The medical center is also close to Mosholu Parkway, where fashion icons Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein both grew up. He noted that these are examples of the entrepreneurial spirit of the borough that the Foundry will tap.
Also attending was Robert Walsh, FCRH ’81, Commissioner of New York City Department of Small Business Services. He stated, “We are a college town. How can colleges and universities open their doors to make our city a better place? As he always does, Father McShane said it’s a shared value, not only what we need from the community, but what the community needs from us,” he said.
“We’re all in here together, and we could end up building something powerful.”
