ESDC to PACB: more evasion on the crime issue

BlightPrecinctBoundaries.jpgAtlantic Yards Report

The Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) blew off criticisms of alleged high crime in the proposed Atlantic Yards footprint, as I wrote yesterday, describing comments to the authority submitted after the release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement.

However, the ESDC did address the crime issue in a document sent to the Public Authorities Control Board (PACB) after its 12/8/06 approval vote and before the PACB's approval vote 12/20/06.

Or, more accurately, the ESDC mentioned the issue and defended its position without actually responding to the criticism.
