New York, of course, has several arenas big enough to house a large tent. There is the old Yankee Stadium, which sits unused while the Yankees are heading for the playoffs in their new home next door. There is also a site near Downtown Brooklyn that may one day become the home of basketball’s Nets — Atlantic Yards.
Joe DePlasco, a spokesman for Forest City Ratner, the site’s developer, said Colonel Qaddafi “could do it but he’d probably be hit by a train.”
“Most of Atlantic Yards is being built over the Long Island Rail Road, which is a functioning railyard. So it would be rather precarious for a tent.”
Not so. The project footprint is 22 acres. The railyard is 8.5 acres. And Atlantic Yards isn't being built yet.
Don't they know that DePlasco is unreliable?
