Historic preservation, theory and practice

Joker.jpg Atlantic Yards Report responds to a NoLandGrab post:

No Land Grab points out the irony of Forest City Ratner sponsoring an AIANY (American Institute of Architects-New York) panel on historic preservation. I'll remind people that parent Forest City Enterprises embraces historic preservation, just not in Brooklyn.

NoLandGrab: Irony or rank hypocrisy, it explains why no amount of preservation press elsewhere in the nation has managed to improve Bruce Ratner's standing as the Dark Lord of Overdevelopment.
