P.S. I Love You: Met life is the only life for him

The Brooklyn Paper
By Gersh Kuntzman

We can really relate to Brooklyn Paper editor Gersh Kuntzman's manifesto on the character-building attributes of another disappointing NY Mets season. Save-Brooklyn-from-Bruce-Ratner's-Atlantic-Yards activists have been "building characters" for nearly four years now, but, unlike Mets fans, local activists only have to actually win once.

After you get past Gersh's whining, there's this little tidbit that makes the Brucester seem like a sort-of-OK guy afterall:

You may know Bruce Ratner as the man who wants to fill Prospect Heights with 16 skyscrapers, but we know him as the guy who’s letting our Park Slope pal Ben Rubin install his beloved multi-media installation, Listening Post, in the lobby of the gorgeous new Times building in Gaphattan. What can we say, the man showed real taste this time.

There has been no word on whether or not arts patron Bruce Ratner has tried to acquire Future Perfect for his "permanent collection."
