Robert LoScalzo

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.
