Replicate the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center model to retain manufacturing jobs in New York.
Explanation: 

The Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center (GMDC) owns and operates rehabilitated industrial buildings, offering start-up manufacturing firms and artisan tenants below market rents, employing hundreds of people. Especially as commercial rents fall in this economic downturn, let's replicate the GMDC program throughout New York, buying vacated industrial buildings to spur industrial growth in the city.
