At the core of the project is the construction of a new sewer line under the Belt Parkway at 126th Street to supplement already existing, nearly century-old sewer lines that are often overwhelmed during heavy rains.

His 1987 book, “The Art of the Deal,” sold millions of copies and topped the New York Times’ nonfiction best seller list for weeks on end. It seemed everything The Donald touched turned to gold.

It took three years and over a billion dollars but the top-to-bottom renovations of Madison Square Garden have finally been completed. The Garden truly has the feel of a brand-new arena, not one that was built in 1968 and had some modifications made to it.
