In his "The Bottom Line" radio broadcast on October 20 on 1010 WINS, CBS New York, Robert Walsh promoted the opening of Manhattan College's new Raymond W. Kelly '63 Student Commons. 

Read a transcript of Walsh's remarks below:

Hi, I'm Rob Walsh. A great New York and American is honored at Manhattan College on today's Bottom Line.

It was 161 years ago when Manhattan College was founded on 131st Street and Broadway in the Manhattanville section of Harlem. To further expand, it moved in 1923 to its present Riverdale location in the Bronx. It decided to keep its established name - Manhattan College.

Now, Manhattan has added a beautiful, new 70,000-square foot, state of the art student center. The building was dedicated last week to one of its own graduates. He is a great New Yorker who has done so much for this city and our country in his 50 years of public service - former police commissioner Raymond W. Kelly.

Congratulations Commissioner Kelly - and to the terrific team at Manhattan College led by President Brennan O'Donnell. They continue to teach and inspire a new generation to serve, get involved and make a difference. Go Jaspers!

And that's The Bottom Line. I'm Rob Walsh for 1010 WINS.
