Atlantic Yards Report

This is a MUST READ for REPORTERS covering Bruce Ratner's "Atlantic Yards" megaproject slated to be built over the VANDERBILT RAILYARDS PLUS about 13-14 ACRES of city streets and private property, in PROSPECT HEIGHTS, due to a STATE ZONING OVERRIDE, ACROSS THE STREET from where Walter O'Malley wanted to build a new ballpark for the Dodgers, which was scaled back ONLY AFTER the plans were made larger, etc.

NoLandGrab: Heck, even if you're not a reporter, you'll want to be familiar with this list, so you won't get fooled again.
