Demolition Complete for 487 and 489 Dean Street

Unfortunately, the Atlantic Yards work stoppage came too late for 487 and 489 Dean Street, two perfectly serviceable buildings that were leveled in the last week by developer demolisher Forest City Ratner.

With the prospects of the Atlantic Yards project growing dimmer by the day, we're wondering what the state and city officials who allowed Bruce Ratner to lay waste to Prospect Heights, and the judges who declined to grant injunctions against demolitions, might suggest we do with all this developer's blight? The New Yorker has some not-very-inspiring suggestions.
