Forest City Ratner refuses to let me into press conference on new arena plaza designs

Wonder why I wasn't at the press conference yesterday unveiling the new arena plaza designs?

Well, I filed an RSVP Monday night and was told by Forest City Ratner spokesman Joe DePlasco, "Hey, sorry, we are doing a small group of print press but will send out all to entire list in am, including you."

Yet somehow WNYC and NY1 made it in.

Some back story: I've been barred from some events and, with some nudging, have been admitted to others.

Maybe they're not so comfortable with someone who remembers how Bruce Ratner has contradicted himself.
