Unity vs. Godzilla/Unidad vs. Godzilla

El Diario

Editorial in English:

The UNITY plan proposed for Atlantic Yards significantly raises the bar for the development of affordable housing. If New York City and state leaders are truly committed to this priority, they will champion the UNITY alternative to Forest City Ratner’s Godzilla-sized, ill-conceived, monster of a project.

UNITY—Understanding, Imagining and Transforming the Atlantic Yards—emerges from a collaborative planning effort facilitated by the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods. The plan calls for a legally-enforceable community benefits agreement with broad community participation.

El plan pide beneficios comunitarios que se hagan cumplir legalmente con amplia participación de la comunidad.
