Brennan Halves Brooklyn's Baby

Brooklyn Downtown Star

As the old saying goes, a compromise ain't good unless both sides think it's bad. Judging by that criterion, State Assemblyman Jim Brennan has recently had a stroke of genius regarding the constantly controversial Atlantic Yards proposal for Prospect Heights. He has managed to get Jim Stuckey and Dan Goldstein to finally agree on something. They both don't like his bill.

"The whole premise of the bill is wrong," argued Goldstein, the spokesman for Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB), in a phone interview with the Star over the weekend.

"In many ways," dismissed Stuckey, president of the Atlantic Yards Corporation, during a WNYC radio interview this past Monday morning, "all proposals that purport to have you do less density on that site are a ruse."
