Is AY site in Fort Greene? Flashback to an odd caption
Atlantic Yards Report says the New York Times has "no excuse for identifying buildings within the Atlantic Yards footprint as located in Fort Greene rather than Prospect Heights, as indicated by the caption in this 4/2/05 Times article." Four additional errors in NY Times captions are pointed out as well.
Despite the Times's stated policy of correcting "all its factual errors, large and small," I'll assume that the failure to correct this--I did request a correction, to no avail--falls under the explanation, as per the Corrections Editor, "There is a limit to how many old articles we can correct in print."
