‘Mastermind of MetroTech’ Dies

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

No, the other one.

George Bugliarello, president emeritus and former chancellor of Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) and one of the founders, along with Bruce Ratner, of MetroTech, died after a short illness on Feb. 18. He helped develop Polytechnic, formed in the 1970s by the merger of Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn and NYU’s School of Engineering, into a major engineering and technological university.

He also was one of the originators of MetroTech, one of the first urban university-industry research parks in the United States, and an advocate for the revival of Downtown Brooklyn in general.


NoLandGrab: Industry research park? What happened to that? City and state back-room operations are MetroTech's biggest tenants.
