Panoramas by Tracy Collins: three views of the arena site
Prospect Heights photographer Tracy Collins on August 27 took several panoramic photos (copyrighted) of the Atlantic Yards arena site, from three separate positions.
Because of the wide lens, they portray the arena site as less vertical and more isolated than actual. But they're still valuable snapshots.
Atlantic Avenue near Fort Greene Place (the continuation of Fifth Avenue, were it not demapped), from the north (note how Atlantic seems to bend).
Dean Street near Flatbush Avenue, the southwest corner of the block (Dean Street bends too, as it continues behind the cars in the intersection; Flatbush goes to the east past the white building).
Atlantic Avenue near South Portland Avenue (the continuation of Sixth Avenue), looking south (note how Atlantic seems to bend).
