Another reason to distrust the New York Daily News's editorial today: a dishonest photo

Today's Daily News editorial, which I dissected here, was accompanied by a photo of two thirds of the railyard--in other words, perhaps a quarter of the overall Atlantic Yards site.

The other part of the arena--not stadium, as Borough President Marty Markowitz would remind people, is being built on pieces of residential/commercial Pacific and Dean Streets.

In other words, the photo is as dishonest as the editorial.

  1. This photo looks like it was taken from a Ratner-controlled building in the AY footprint. The photographer was given access by the developer, and so it's not a stretch to suggest that the developer had some editorial suggestions in what to photograph and how.

  2. Maybe. Though it could also have been taken from Newswalk.

    A good number of arena site photos, however, have been taken from the Ratner-controlled Atlantic Center mall.
