It was our first time covering this event, and I have to say the most uplifting encouraging speech I heard was by Larry Silverstein, Billionaire Chairman and founder of Silverstein Properties. He went into detail how he started his company alongside his father and how he bought his first building and went to so many banks that turned him down, and how he eventually got a loan from one of the banks, and built his empire. I was so impressed with Mr. Silverstein’s speech, it touched my heart, keeping in mind he is 91.5 years old as he said in his speech, I did a special video of this speech which you can sit back and watch and learn from one of the greatest real-estate Tycoon in the USA and possibly in the World.

About  NSA: Founded in 1989 by Hispanic entrepreneurs, the NSA is a trade association that represents the interest of independent supermarket owners in New York and other urban cities throughout the East coast, Mid-Atlantic region and Florida.

Beginning in the mid-seventies, these entrepreneurs had the courage of opening supermarkets in areas abandoned by the large chains, as they were economically depressed and mostly minority neighborhoods.

These men and women had the vision and the commitment to fill a vacuum in those communities, at a time when the term “food desert” had not even been coined. Currently, many NSA members continue to serve those areas by offering healthy foods and full service supermarkets.

The association has grown dramatically in the last two decades and currently provides its members hands on representation in both the private and public sectors and advocates issues that impact the entire supermarket industry.

Current membership represents approximately 400 supermarkets. Most members are of Hispanic descent, and their stores are predominantly located in minority neighborhoods.
