Arena site in the Times? Nah

Is this the Atlantic Yards arena site, as today's New York Times suggests?


Nah. Rather than stretch solely along the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Vanderbilt Yard, as in the picture, the arena site would end at the Sixth Avenue Bridge in the upper left quadrant of the photo and stretch south below the Pacific Street boundary, at the far left of the photo.

Below is the arena site outlined, more or less, in a photo by Jonathan Barkey. Click on both to enlarge.

  2. Are arenas usually shaped like long rectangles?

    The NYT photo suggests that the arena would be limited to the Vanderbilt Yard rather than require streets and private property, some of which is part of the pending eminent domain litigation.

  3. Bobbo, when the Times runs a photo with a caption reading "arena site" shouldn't the photo be of, uhm, the arena site?

    Criminal? No. Irresponsible journalism? Yes.

  4. Bobbo should sign his name as Bob Windrem.
