Jay has been particularly hands-on in his contributions to the team since its relocation to Brooklyn. The minority owner has helped design the new logo, he gave input on the 11 luxury suites. Jay helped determine what champagne would be used in the $550,000 suites and even determined what cutlery would be used.
Forest City CEO Bruce Ratner, David Berliner, Mary Anne Gilmartin, Christophe Charlier, Irina Pavlova and David Carlock will also serve as directors of the operations of the facility.
