For weeks, the project’s developer, Forest City Ratner, and its state sponsor, the Empire State Development Corporation, had deflected questions from bloggers about the arena’s location, saying that they could not divulge information related to security.
Actually, not just ¨bloggers¨(who might just be legit journalists) but also print journalists.
More from today´s article, paragraph nine:
After this calculation was published in The Times on Nov. 8, Atlantic Yards watchdogs said that it was not realistic and that the arena was going to be much closer to the street, citing architect’s renderings and language in plan documents.
That leaves out the original blog´s link to the explicit corrective information. OK, this is in print, but how about a URL?
Paragraph 12, the next to last paragraph, the real news:
That is the same distance as the arena in Newark. This new information prompted another question: What makes the Atlantic Yards arena sufficiently different from the Newark arena that it will not require street closings?
Rowback in today´s article regarding the arena: it is scheduled to open after 2009.
The original article Nov. 8: scheduled to open in 2009.
