Still waiting for details about the final AY changes

Atlantic Yards Report

The top-secret Ratnerville "compromise" leads Norman Oder to ask some hard questions:

So, what did it all mean, that December 20 statement by Forest City Ratner about last-minute changes in the Atlantic Yards project, deemed "additional community initiatives and enhanced housing program"?

We don't yet know the details about the dimensions of Miss Brooklyn (it's shorter but is it as bulky?), the affordable homeowner units, the contribution to parks, and the plan for a new Brooklyn Tech high school. And it's not clear when we'll know.

Oder asked the Empire State Development Corporation for details more than once before he got the traditional brush off.
