Atlantic Yards Report has already posted a running commentary of the interview, including criticism of urban design topics that were overlooked, such as "density" and the necessity of street closings if an arena is located at the intersection of Atlantic and Flatbush.

Most interesting in Norman Oder's AY Report analysis is the distinction between the opinions and statements of the two guests, Kent Barwick and Stuart Pertz. Oder's analysis implies that Barwick walks a fine line and comes across as the more politic of the two, while Pertz generally takes a more critical, less optimistic, view of the project.
