Jets President to Oversee West Side Development
June 17th, 2008

A few years ago, Jay Cross, the president of the New York Jets, spent much of his time trying to convince New Yorkers that it would be a good idea to build a new football stadium on the West Side of Manhattan. In 2005, the state legislature blocked the project, and Cross shifted his efforts to building a new stadium in the Meadowlands instead.

Now Cross is back on the West Side. According to a press release posted on the New York Observer blog, Cross has been named president of the Related Hudson Yards and “will lead Relateds development efforts of the 26-acre Hudson Yards site in collaboration with New York State, New York City, the MTA, elected officials and the community.”
