Ratner, Bloomie tout CBA in press conference

Ratner CBA Press Conference

What makes this CBA historic was the number of community groups left out in the cold, but that didn't put a damper on the festivity of the occasion. Police kept the good vibes flowing by barring pesty community members of groups opposed to the project.

The event drew a lot of media coverage:
