At the start, it was 80/20 affordable housing, not 50/30/20
Atlantic Yards Report
Norman Oder is still sifting through the documents obtained by State Assemblyman Jim Brennan, looking for more details to clarify or correct the on-going historical narrative of Atlantic Yards.
Today he looks at affordable housing:
I've previously criticized Bertha Lewis of ACORN for saying that she got developer Forest City Ratner to include affordable housing in the Atlantic Yards development. I noted that that was the plan all along, at least since Atlantic Yards was announced publicly on 12/10/03.
Well, not exactly. Recently released documents offer clues that ACORN indeed had an impact, though not quite the one Lewis has described.
