PM Update: Gehry Says Miss Brooklyn is Alive

April 4th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Despite all the recent headlines about the Atlantic Yards Stall and the demise of Miss Brooklyn, Frank Gehry says his signature tower is still alive. He lays the news on the Brooklyn Paper, which caught up with him at last night’s controversial Brooklyn Museum Gala. Of Bruce Ratner, Mr. Gehry says “He really does want to build it…But he can’t get the financing. I don’t know why he would tell the papers that, but it is true.” But, he tells Gersh Kuntzman that “Bruce will have a tenant soon — and then he’ll begin construction.” In the meantime, Mr. Gehry is tweaking his tower and says that it will “look better than anyone imagines.”

    Gehry always talks like that. What he said means: “I hope it gets built, why are you asking me, yes, no, maybe, it’s not my fault that building leaks, I’m old what do I know.”
