Another AY error from the Times; mayor sanguine about subway crowding

Atlantic Yards Report

NY Times after-the-fact-checker Norman Oder catches another AY mistake:

"...the Atlantic railroad yards in Brooklyn may someday soon house the New Jersey Nets, as well as mixed-income apartments and 600,000 square feet of new office space."

The railroad yards could never house the Nets, the apartments, and office space because they're too small. For the umpteenth time, a reporter has assumed that Atlantic Yards and the railyards are coterminous, even as the latter would be a little more than a third of the AY project.
