Atlantic Yards math! A minimum from one perspective is a maximum from another (arena community events, parking spaces)

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder peers through the looking glass at Atlantic Yards, where one plus one usually adds up to anything but two.

Sometimes the Empire State Development Corporation and Forest City Ratner talk out of both sides of their collective mouth, thus challenging the spirit, if not the letter, of agreements regarding both surface parking and community events at the arena.
