Nicholas Sprayregen, the holdout Morningside Heights property owner who is Columbia's biggest hurdle to expansion, gets profiled. It's slightly bizarre: "Do you really have to drag out that photograph of you and the Boss posing at a Bridgehampton ice cream shop, the shot used as a screen saver on all your electronic gadgets? Did you really name two of your companies, Rising Development Company and Rising Publications, in honor of Mr. Springsteen? Does the final line on your one-page résumé read: 'Number one Bruce Springsteen fan in Harlem' even though you and your wife, Jaynee, live on the Upper East Side? Yes, yes and yes." [NYT]
