In the Brooklyn Paper, editor insists that the newspaper's covering Atlantic Yards

In a very interesting phone interview (Vito speaks — sort of!) with Vito Lopez, in which the beleaguered Assemblyman urges the Brooklyn Paper to cover affordable housing issues--good idea--editor Gersh Kuntman asks,"Assemblyman do you really think we aren’t covering the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Atlantic Yards and other issues?"

Lopez says he doesn't read the paper, but I do, and I can say--sorry to sound like a broken record--that the Brooklyn Paper doesn't cover Atlantic Yards all that much any more.

Yes, there's some good stuff about the census in this week's issue, and the Paper covers Atlantic Yards news when it emerges via press release and yes, it's shorthanded, but...

Did the Brooklyn Paper cover the Empire State Development Corporation board meeting December 16 in which a 25-year project buildout was deemed not to have significant impacts or the subsequent court hearing December 22?

Nope.
