Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park graphic: what's built/what's coming + FAQ (pinned post)

On Thursday, an ESDC vote--and a short documentary about AY

It is apparently an unintended irony that a short documentary about Atlantic Yards and nearby residents, titled "I Remember Brooklyn," is scheduled to be screened on Thursday, September 17, at Freddy's Bar & Backroom.

Sure, many people know that Freddy's (485 Dean St. @ 6th Avenue) is scheduled to be demolished for the Atlantic Yards project. But Thursday is also the day in which the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) is expected to re-approve the project, thus increasing the likelihood of the demolition of Freddy's.

The event starts at 7 pm and the 17-minute film is expected to be shown at about 7:40 pm, allowing time for discussion afterward, according to the filmmaker, VerĂ´nica Medina.
