The fighting Irish at Beep’s party

The Brooklyn Papers
By Ariella Cohen


Patti and Schelli Hagan have crashed the Borough President’s annual ball each year since 2004, when the Beep came out as chief cheerleader for the borough’s largest and most-controversial development, Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards arena and skyscraper project.

The Brooklyn Papers reports that, "Security guards tried to escort the duo out," but, "Eventually, the guards gave up and left."

“We’re Irish,” said Hagan, “We weren’t going to leave before the step-dancers.”
