Staten Island, N.Y.— Gotham Motorcycles, New York City’s only authorized Indian, Victory and Slingshot motorcycle dealership, celebrated their one-year anniversary on May 22 with an outdoor picnic at their Tompkinsville location.
More than three hundred customers and residents enjoyed an afternoon of free food, family fun and music by SINY DJ’s, posing for pictures with celebrities and playing games as they anxiously awaited the drawing for the winner of the 2014 KYMCO scooter.
Gotham Motorcycles owner, Mark Crescitelli, said, “I am so grateful to our customers and neighbors who have been tremendously supportive of us over the past year. The Crescitelli family has a long history of selling motorcycles on Staten Island. I am thrilled to be able to celebrate the success of our first year and to have firmly replanted new roots by going back to selling Indian motorcycles on Staten Island as my grandfather did nearly 100 years ago.”
The scooter giveaway was the brainchild of Gotham Motorcycle’s General Manager Alex Figliolia Jr. as a way to say thank you to customers both old and new.
Figliolia Jr. said, “Gotham Motorcycles is more than just a motorcycle dealership, it is a place for people to gather and share stories about their lives and to come together to help people in need. The men and women who walk through the doors are generous to their very core, and I wanted them to know how much they are appreciated, so we decide to have a contest to give away one of our 2014 KYMCO scooters.”
The contest began in January with contestants able to enter both online, by mail and in person. “Sopranos” actor, Tony Sirco aka “Paulie Walnuts” chose the winner from the nearly 10,000 entries.
Winner of the KYMCO scooter Kevin McVicar said, “I am so shocked I actually won! I’m very excited, and I would like to thank Mark and the staff at Gotham Motorcycles for helping make my day.”
