Another book imagines that Walter O'Malley sought a spot "in the Atlantic Yards"

As shown at right, in A Moment in Time: An American Story of Baseball, Heartbreak, and Grace, baseball great Ralph Branca (with his co-author) imagines that there was a place, in the 1950s, called "Atlantic Yards."

There wasn't. And it wasn't where Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley wanted to build, either.

Nor will the Barclays Center cost $4 billion. That was once the tab for the entire Atlantic Yards project.
