News flash: Brooklyn arena would be as close to the street as the Newark arena

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder analyzes Andy Newman's article from the Times's City Room blog.

His first beef starts with the headline, and he makes a good point — and one we totally missed:

The news surfaced this afternoon on the Times's CityRoom blog, in an article both substantial and whimsical that was marred by the oblique headline Putting the Atlantic Yards Arena in a Secure Place. (A literal reading suggests that some entity is enhancing AY security, which is not the subject of the article.)

Oder suggests that the article could have been clearer if it had more teeth, recommends that an article run in the paper, and notes that the timing of today's revelation is in sharp contrast to other NY Times Atlantic Yards exclusives.
