Excerpts: “I never made it into Freddy's Bar and Backroom for its closing night on Dean Street last night. Neither did a lot of people. But Tracy Collins did, and his photos (set) capture a flavor of the evening.
"There was a lot of talk but virtually no overt protest. One guy from Park Slope—who told me he'd never previously protested—hung around with a sign saying 'Welcome to Rat City.'
"Indeed, there were a lot of people who regulars didn't recognize, and one undercurrent of the evening was the recognition that had everyone who embraced Freddy's had firmly protested Atlantic Yards, there would have been a lot more resistance."
