What's left out of New York magazine's AY footprint

Here's the print issue version of New York magazine's Atlantic Yards timeline.

(Click to enlarge)

It's worth noting that the Frank Gehry rendering at the top represents only Phase 1, the arena block, bounded by Flatbush, Atlantic, and Sixth avenues, and by Dean Street. (Site 5 is omitted.)

It's also worth noting that the photo at bottom, which shows Forest City Ratner's malls and the Williamsburgh Savings Bank for perspective, only portrays part of the arena block. It focuses mainly on (part of) the Vanderbilt Yard, cutting off the block bounded by Flatbush, Fifth, and Sixth avenues, and Dean Street--the block that houses plaintiffs in two lawsuits.

More perspective

This photo by Jonathan Barkey, who took multiple aerial photos, provides more perspective.

Much of the project footprint is highlighted in the larger oval, with the arena block in the foreground, up to the bridge. The smaller ovals show towers in adjacent neighborhoods.
