Are doubts about Atlantic Yards affordable housing one piece of Bloomberg's revised housing goal?

Atlantic Yards Report

The Daily News reported yesterday on Mayor Mike Bloomberg's affordable housing plan:

Gone is the mayor's first-term goal of creating 92,000 affordable units and preserving 73,000.

The 2014 goal in a report Bloomberg plans to release Monday is now 60,000 new units and 105,000 preserved.

Surely the delayed and more doubtful plan for Atlantic Yards affordable housing plays a small role in those calculations.
