So, the Vanderbilt Yard was platformed? Not quite.

Is Sunnyside Yards a Beacon of Affordable Housing and New Development? Perhaps, the Commercial Observer reported today. However, the original version had a pretty glaring error, as I pointed out on Twitter.



It's Atlantic Yards down the memory hole.

The railyard most assuredly has not been platformed, though preliminary work is ongoing. It's the Vanderbilt Yard, not Atlantic Yards, since that was a brand name for a development, no Pacific Park.

And it's not really Forest City's Pacific Park development, but Greenland Forest City Partners' project.

Note the updated article, which does not acknowledge a correction.


I get that there was an agreement to build a platform, yet unfulfilled. But inanimate objects like rail yards can't enter into agreements.
