Robert LoScalzo is a Telly Award-winning producer of promotional
and educational audio-visual media for corporations and institutions.
In 2007, when the City of New York announced it would "redevelop"
the industrial neighborhood of Willets Point, LoScalzo thought
it could be interesting to depict the area and the City's
effort to dismantle it on video. He's stuck with that project
all the years since, recording hundreds of hours of interviews
and public hearings; and obtaining project documents and behind-the-scenes
communications via the Freedom of Information Law. He's amassed
what is probably the biggest private collection of Willets Point
information and has become a resource to the property and business
owners, and the attorneys who have tried to protect their interests.
