Dinkins announced that the City's Economic Development Corporation selected AJ Contracting Corporation, Inc., a New York City-based general contractor, to prepare the interior of Madison Square Garden for this summer's Democratic National Convention. The firm will be responsible for constructing the convention's podium, bandstand, seating areas for 4,992 delegates and guests, and work areas for 15,000 reporters expected to cover the Convention.
