While Thompson has hammered away on term limits, he's not exactly challenging Bloomberg on Atlantic Yards.
" I did initially support it. I have real concerns now. I will continue to re-evaluate it, meet with individuals, have a conversation. I plan to sit down to talk and evaluate," he said.
[Crawford's] reaction: You lived in Prospect Heights and initially supported the Atlantic Yards???? Yikes. And why aren't you more outraged now? Many Brooklyn Democrats are.
My reaction: Thompson has had ample time to evaluate. In May 2008, he was pretty vague about AY.
