It came from the Blogosphere...

Blogosphere68.jpgBrownstoner, Atlantic Yards Demo Update
The Brooklyn real estate blog noticed that demos were continuing in the footprint, but, unlike Atlantic Yards junkies and flunkies, had no idea why.

This post was picked up by Real Deal.

Daily Intelligencer, Would Hillary Put Jack Bauer in Charge of Iraq?
If you have any doubt that Bruce Ratner's controversial Atlantic Yards project is the gold standard for "totally twisted," Intelligencer came up with a great analogy:

There's a fascinating nugget in Bill and Hillary's recently dissolved blind trust, which the couple just divested to avoid conflicts of interest. We'll say! One of the trust's holdings was stock in News Corp. This makes Hillary a (admittedly unaware) shareholder in the Post and Fox News — a fact akin to, say, Daniel Goldstein discovering he's invested in Forest City Ratner.

Weeksville Homes, Go See The Doc - BROOKLYN MATTERS, Tonight!
We're posting this link even though the post was for yesterday's screening. Folks might be interested in the affordable-housing and home-ownership blog and the fact that they're paying attention to what's going on with Atlantic Yards "affordable" housing.

[BTW: TONIGHT'S SCREENING of Brooklyn Matters is at the Park Slope Jewish Center.]

Single Tails, The Future Is Bright
If you're looking for a bright future in an emerging industry, think construction management, sez one blogger:

Did you know that over the next ten years, there are $ 58 Billion in construction projects planned? From the Atlantic Yards to the Far West Side to various stadia going up. Construction Managers will have exactly no problem whatsoever finding work. And real estate development in New York City is already rife with NYU grads, apparently eager to give a helping hand to fellow alum.

Queens Crap, Thorn in Ratner's side
We think of Goldstein as a burr in Ratner's saddle.
