Atlantic Yards Demolition Work Suspended

WNYC

REPORTER: Friday's decision from developer Forest City Ratner came after a partial collapse of a five story building's roof parapet on Thursday. Workers were removing asbestos, and readying the building for demolition.

But Peter Krashes, President of the Dean Street Block Association, says there are larger problems, including a lack of information about how the project is being implemented, and inadequate oversight. Krashes says its time for the Governor to address these problems.

KRASHES: The person whos is responsible for what happens in this footprint is the governor of the state of New York. And we are desperate for the governor to respond to the questions we've asked.
