From Tracy Collins: time-lapse photos, day and night, from 636 Pacific Street looking northwest at Atlantic and Flatbush avenues

Photographer Tracy Collins visited Daniel Goldstein's building at 636 Pacific Street during both the day (May 4) and evening (May 6, the last night Goldstein and family were residents--to take two series of time-lapse photos.

As the photos show, the closing and demapping of Fifth Avenue, to the west of Goldstein's building, has made it much easier for Forest City Ratner to proceed with utility work and other site preparation on the arena block.

Also, as the photos show, the northwest end of the Atlantic Yards site truly is a borderland, with broad Atlantic Avenue to the north, a tower over the Atlantic Terminal mall, and the Williamsburgh Savings Bank tower (aka One Hanson) just to the west.

What's not shown is the southern border of Goldstein's building and the southern border of the site, lined by much narrower Dean Street and the row-house scale of Prospect Heights (as shown in the video I took).
