Paper of record, on record, "For the Record"

It's not exactly the mea culpa that Atlantic Yards critics were looking for, but The New York Times checked it out and found that Ratner's plan isn't now and has never been in Downtown Brooklyn:

Because of an editing error, an article in The Arts on Tuesday about Frank Gehry's design for the first phase of the Grand Avenue development project in Los Angeles misstated the location of the proposed Atlantic Yards project that Mr. Gehry is designing in Brooklyn. (The error also appeared in sports articles on Feb. 9 and April 11, in the City section on Jan. 15 and in several articles in 2003, 2004 and 2005.) It is on rail yards and other land in Prospect Heights and on a block in Park Slope; it is not in Downtown Brooklyn, although it is near that neighborhood. (Go to Tuesday's Article)

Matthew Schuerman ranks this correction amongst his all-time favorite Times corrections (no kidding).

Atlantic Yards Report, The Times finally corrects the "Downtown Brooklyn" errors
Stormin' Norman Oder welcomes the "belated" correction, but believes The Times could have gone further. In his typical relentless fashion, Oder managed to find 14 articles in the NY Times Sports section in 2003 that have yet to be appended.
