Critic Morrone: urban quality of Brooklyn at stake

Atlantic Yards Report offers a terrific recap of Francis Morrone's criticism of the Atlantic Yards proposal:

Historian and an architecture critic Francis Morrone, speaking to an audience in Brooklyn Heights as part of a 3/23/06 forum on the Atlantic Yards project, declared that "nowhere is the urban quality of Brooklyn so at stake as at the Atlantic Yards" and called for community vigilance toward inappropriate development. He also warned that architect Frank Gehry's "disjunctive esthetic" was inappropriate for the site.
