The Atlantic Yards: A "Brazen and Costly Scam"

Here is a concise history of the Atlantic Yards and the development—or lack thereof!—of that side of downtown Brooklyn. Don't worry, you have plenty of time to read it, this garbage will be going on until 2037, at which time, one hopes, the seas will have risen enough that we'll have had to move on to making canals down on Wall Street.

Shit, I'll be 55 when it's "done."

Did you read the NYT's awful blowjob to ratner last weekend?? the terrible author actually wrote:

"Hair and shirttail running amok, Mr. Ratner has the bookish and unassuming style of an absent-minded professor, a striking contrast to the sharp elbows and blustery personality of developers like Donald J. Trump"

Everything here looks strange. I can understand that we want to improve certain aspects of our beloved city and I can support that. I even agree and support the master-planned communities act and the way that they feel that things need to change. However, I don't think that this is the best way we can improve, it will take a lot of time for something like this to happen and most of us, if any, will not even remember what's the point of it.
