About the Author

Ambassador Charles A. Gargano, a real estate legend, expert engineer, and legendary Republican fundraiser and strategist, served the US government for three decades, appointed by Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush, as well as by New York State Governor George Pataki. As Chairman and CEO of the Empire State Development Corp., Commissioner of the Department of Economic Development, and Vice Chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Gargano was principally responsible for the regeneration of lower Manhattan following September 11, 2001. His immersion culminated in the rebuilding of the World Trade Center. He also masterminded the renovation and re-engineering of dozens of major New York projects, including the Atlantic Yards; the Jacob Javits Center; the second Harlem Renaissance; Dia Center for the Arts; Downtown Brooklyn; Buffalo Harbor; Niagara Falls; and the 42nd Street Revival. Now at the start of his ninth decade, Gargano remains an indefatigable conservative force, cementing a formidable legacy in politics, business, and urban development.
