Never mind, says NYCT: B63 reroute, Fifth Avenue closing won't happen as announced

Another Atlantic Yards Report scoop.

Never mind the B63 reroute, we were just taking orders from Ratner, sez NYCT.

Remember that April 9 letter from New York City Transit (NYCT) to Brooklyn Community Board 6 regarding plans to revise service on the northbound B63 bus route? [link]

It was supposed to be implemented on May 27, in response to the demapping of Fifth Avenue between Flatbush and Atlantic avenues "in the near future" for the Atlantic Yards project, according to NYCT's Lois Tendler.

Never mind. It's not happening this week. NYCT apparently was taking cues from developer Forest City Ratner more than from fellow involved agencies.
