Ratner's central party planning committee invites you...

CBABlockPartyFlier.gif The participants in Bruce Ratner's "Ye Olde*" Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) have officially transformed themselves into Brooklyn's finest Party Planning Committee.

Instead of doing what community groups say, Ratner supporters do what we DO. When Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods and Brooklyn Speaks hold a rally with local politicians, Ratner's crew holds their own rally. And now after the Dean St. Block Association has a block party, Ratner supporters are throwing their very own "block party."

We must be doing something right, because we appear to be getting under their skin. We can't wait for Bruce's "Blockbuster Bake Sale" (featuring FREE cookies?).

Atlantic Yards Report calls it "brutally weird" and Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn deemed it a "joke."

We wonder if Bruce Ratner's party planning committee can't find something more important to do.

* That faux-parchment thingie still cracks us up.
