It Came from the Atlantic Yards Report...
Does this photo, taken yesterday morning, depict a site prepared "for the next steps"? What about the half-demolished Carlton Avenue Bridge?
What about the material lying around on the ground? Are they just going to leave the footbridges there for the winter, as the pool of water accumulates?
With an announced attendance of 15,364, the Izod Center was allegedly more than three-quarters full for the game last night between the New Jersey Nets and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Again, photos suggest a vastly different level of attendance.
Just for the record, the Ward Bakery is still in the final stages of demolition, as the New York Times's correction yesterday stated; it was not completed in October, as I wrote Wednesday.
So this week news breaks that Forest City Ratner has bailed out the national advocacy organization ACORN, and that it has stopped all work at the Vanderbilt Yard.
What does the Brooklyn Paper--which last year won a "newspaper of the year" award in part for its Atlantic Yards coverage--do?
This week they give us a screaming headline about how a hapless pizza delivery guy vandalized an elevator.
