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.

We can assume that Forest City Ratner is not supporting the Prospect Heights House Tour nor the Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn walkathon today.

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.
