Atlantic Yards Deathwatch Watch
Though we doubt that the folks at Forest City Enterprises have changed their homepages to the Atlantic Yards Deathwatch, the site made a ripple in the blogosphere.
Norman Oder of Atlantic Yards Report sez:
I'm not sure I buy the concept of the Atlantic Yards Deathwatch. Maybe it should be the Atlantic Yards Delay-watch.
Comments from the Brownstoner pack:
...guess they're pretty sure the project won't see the light of day.
Just more propaganda, the flip-side of Ratner announcing that he's going to break ground in December.
why is the No Land Grab posting written as if they aren't hosting the deathwatch?
...enough already with the crying lets get out arena, i don't see what all the fuss is about!
No land grab talked about all of the great things that could happen to the site if Ratner didnt build on it.
NoLandGrab: For the record, this site is an aggregator of the news, with some editorial flip. We also carry the news of all the great things the developer continues to promise!
Seriously, no matter what happens on the Atlantic Yards footprint site, it's already a loss for the neighborhood, since Bruce Ratner has ruthlessly and methodically taken down nearly every building he can.
At last check, today makes something like 1804 Days, 00 Hours, 48 Minutes, 20 Seconds since Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards megaproject was announced.
