Doctoroff reflects on PlaNYC's virtues; contrasts with AY evident
Atlantic Yards Report
Norman Oder uses former Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff's own words to expose the big lie otherwise known as Atlantic Yards.
As the second anniversary of the debut of PlaNYC 2030 approaches, former Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff Wednesday reflected on "one of the Bloomberg administration's proudest legacies." The event, at the Museum of the City of New York, was the first public appearance in which Doctoroff addressed the issue since he left government.
While a framework plan like PlaNYC is not the same as a development project like AY, notably, many of the principles behind the former--an emphasis on consultation and achievable goals, realistically presented--seem counter to the city's embrace of Atlantic Yards.
