Brooklyn’s fight not to go to Ratnerville
Kudos to Michael D. D. White (Noticing New York) for his amazing post (A Christmas Eve Story of Alternative Realities: The Fight Not To Go To Pottersville (Or Ratnerville) 12.24.09). White posted an eloquent adaptation of Frank Capra’s 1947 film It’s a Wonderful Life suggesting that if the movie were taking place in today’s New York, the lead character, George Bailey, would find similar monopolies and abuses of power as that seen in the original movie.
