Dolly Williams to be honored by Brooklyn Public Library

Atlantic Yards Report

We laughed our glasses off when we found out that the Brooklyn Public Library was honoring City Planning Commish and investor in the NJ Nets Dolly Williams.

Norman Oder had a few words to say about it this morning:

...[the Library,] we must remember, does owe some fealty to the powers that be. We have to assume the library folk are not closely reading Streetsblog or NoLandGrab regarding Williams's questionable record. Brutally weird.

We hate it when Norman uses little words that are like big words in disguise, so for those of us who barely made it out of high school:
