First on Ratner's Hit List

The Park Slope Slanter

Ratner will begin the demolition of twelve buildings next week to make way for his Atlantic Yards project. He must be excited. I can see him now stirring a boiling cauldron of concrete and screaming with devilish eyes: "It’s ready! It’s ready!" And then perhaps he fumbles a witch’s line from Macbeth: “Be bold, bloody, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of…me; for none of woman…woman? That’s right woman born shall harm MacRatner!” The Post implies a wrecking ball will bring down the structures. But will dynamite be used? If so we’ll definitely being hearing the roar of Ratner next week. The Slanter’s heading out to take some pictures of these historic buildings before they’re flattened.
