Voodoo Alert: Gehry Inspired by the Brooklyn Bridge

The Gutter stops short of saying that Frank Gehry is full of it, but lays it into him for "the sort of sloppy thinking that drives us totally insane," after viewing the video of the recent NY Times interview.

The good do-gooders at Atlantic Yards Report point us to their coverage of a recent Times video in which the starchitect-in-a-china-shop explains the, um, "research" he has undertaken to understand the culture and texture of the borough into which he is preparing to plop eight zillion square feet of generic fun-times crap.

The Gutter put out a call for more verse on Gehry and Atlantic Yards after saluting Dope on the Slope for last week's limericks (here and here).

Today's poetic offering, "To Frank Gehry on the Occasion of his Outer-Borough Success" may be a classic.
