Atlantic Yards: The Alternative Plan

Daily Gotham

"Mole333" explains that there were actually four plans, "Yes...FOUR plans," for the Vanderbilt Railyards.

One of those Community-Based Plans, the Unity Plan, really was designed with full community input, led by Councilwoman Letisha James. This is an idea that really should be seen more: the community working out its OWN vision for development with government USING that vision as a guide for actual development. If you like the idea of COMMUNITY-based development, you can be a part of making the Unity Plan a reality.

Here are some details:
