Eli, Bay Ridge

Eli is the owner of one of the largest homes in Bay Ridge. (Maybe the largest.). He's of Christian Lebanese descent, and his family moved to Bay Ridge when he was young. Bay Ridge is where he built his success.

"Why did you choose Bay Ridge to build your home?"
"This is where I grew up. I love it here."
"Do you have any advice for people who want to emulate your success?"
"Stay in Bay Ridge!"

Note One: I have tried this advice for 15 years. So far this technique has not worked for me.
Note Two: He may have also mentioned something about hard work and perseverance.
