In Marty's Brooklyn!!, Kanye but not Bruce at the Brooklyn Ball
Atlantic Yards Report
Well, the latest issue of Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz's promotional Brooklyn!! newspaper is out and, as in the past, Atlantic Yards gets short shrift: I couldn't find a mention. (It's not online yet, but here are past issues.)
However, as the snapshot at right suggests, there was an opportunity. According to the caption, hip-hop star Kanye West "performed at the Brooklyn Museum's Brooklyn Ball, celebrating the opening of artist Takashi Murakami's retrospective." Unmentioned: the guest of honor was Atlantic Yards developer Bruce Ratner, and the event provoked a forceful protest.
