Youtube Twofer Tuesday
It's a true multimedia extravaganza at NoLandGrab this morning audio, video, plenty of bloggy-o. Here are not one, but two videos via Youtube.
Freddy's Brooklyn Roundhouse, INCREDIBLE: CB 2, 6 & 8 Information Hiding Meeting with Forest City Ratner and ESDC
No plans presented, little information shared. That pretty much sums up Community Boards 2, 6, and 8's "informational meeting" on July 22, 2009 with Forest City Ratner's MaryAnne Gilmartin, ESDC Senior Counsel Steve Matlin, and the usual crowd of Eminent Domain Abuse loving hecklers. Now the public is expected to comment on changes they are still in the dark about at a series of public hearings on July 29th and 30th. THEN the new plans will be released in September!
The public got to see how FCR and the ESDC can tag-team the double-talk. These are highly paid professionals who seem to have at least a B.S. in B.S., setting up the public to comment on plans they refuse to release until after the comment period is safely over.
In the closing moments of the Public Advocate forum hosted by Brown Memorial Baptist Church, Reverend Clinton Miller urges his congregation and others to come to the ESDC hearing on the Atlantic Yards on July 29, 2009.
