"Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation mourns the passing of Mayor David N. Dinkins, the 106th Mayor of the City of New York. A longstanding partner and supporter of Restoration, Mayor Dinkins was a champion for economic equity. His Minority and Women- Owned Business Enterprise Program is the foundation upon which all New York City MWBE programs have been constructed.
