Love-Hating Brooklyn and the Atlantic Yards
by Dave Hogarty
The half-assed New York Times piece on the arena effect spawns more, since it's The Times.
For all of its winking fun, however, the Times does point out that the neighborhood around the Atlantic Yards is walking a tightrope between bemoaning rapid change and getting caught in the doldrums of protracted development. Massive plans that were meant to utterly transform the Atlantic Yards over 10 years are now projected to take 25 years, forcing residents to "tolerate vacant lots, above-ground arena parking and Phase II construction staging for decades."
