Second Development Plan for Atlantic Yards

From WNYC:

REPORTER: Brooklyn Congressman Anthony Weiner - who is running for Mayor - says the smaller complex proposed by the Extell Development Company could ultimately strengthen developer Bruce Ratner's proposal.

WEINER: I think many people are a little bit concerned that this hasn't been the kind of thing - we've only seen one vision and a vision that I support. now I think we'll have a little sense of contrast. I don't know what the MTA will do but I think the more competition the better.

article NLG: Yes, Mr. Weiner, perhaps an alternate bid will strengthen Ratner's plan, just like Cablevision's bid for the West Side, and London's bid for the Olympics :) But who needs to make sense - you make a honey of a hot dog.
