The minority owned-businesses that have been there for 50 years? The cultural center that is way more pleasurable to attend than Lincoln Center? All of the Europeans who have flooded into the area? (Sometimes you're as likely to hear French as English in Prospect Heights). Yeah, they've done a nice job. Barclay's is there because of them, not the other way around.

THEY all did a good job making the area a decent place for entertainment, shopping, dining etc. Sure, they faced many obstacles along the way. Bottom line is-Ratner got it done.
