Next Katz has naming rights on a facility he doesn't own. Somebody explain that to me. Finally, this is a purported investment of some sort and Katz obtains all revenue from all events at the facility. Again more than "'fair share".
So Katz really isn't paying back anything out of pocket here.
Personally I don't agree with the City spending any money on advertising anywhere.
But given that they do, $2 M spent advertising at what is essentially the City's window to the rest of the world makes sense.
