GROUNDHOG DAY: Three press releases for work at Atlantic Yards

Groundhog.gifIs it ironic, or just a crying shame, that Forest City Ratner put out three press releases between February 20th and last week to announce the preliminary work/demolitions for their Atlantic Yards development project?

This is the same company that doesn't provide any information to the community through the know-nothing Community Liaison Office, though the office is mentioned in the first press release.

The slow drip of press releases is a pretty smart way to keep the demolitions in the news. Every few weeks it's Groundhog Day all over again.

BTW: There are indeed workers at the Ward Bakery building today. It looks like Forest City Ratner sometimes does keep its word.
