AY's "modern blueprint" and today's reality

Atlantic Yards Report looks back in time at Nicholas Confessore's NY Times article from October 2005, "To Build Arena in Brooklyn, Developer First Builds Bridges:" ayrtimes5.08.jpg

Yes, Forest City Ratner was successful in gaining approval for the project. However, the expected results, and benefits, seem to be out of the control of those who approved it. And we know a little more about how to "nourish" and "harvest" community backing.

It doesn't look like as much of a modern blueprint now, especially since Forest City Ratner, post-approval, wants supporters to "reach out" to public officials.
