FCR support: Bed-Stuy Alive & Prospect Park, but what about Prospect Heights?
Atlantic Yards Report
Forest City Ratner, as we know, supports all manner of worthy causes as part of (take your pick) either good civic citizenship or calculated public outreach. As NoLandGrab noticed, the developer is supporting Bed-Stuy Alive, which begins this weekend.
Prospect Park, too
The invite to the Prospect Park Alliance's 20th Anniversary Gala shows Forest City Ratner as one of the three Corporate Vice Chairs. FCR executive Bruce Bender and his wife Amy Bender (who's on the Alliance board) are among the seven couples or individuals serving as Vice Chairs.
As noted, such corporate contributions are always a bit easier when the government offers extra benefits that ease the bottom line.
