Forest City Ratner even bought the back page (right) of the Brooklyn Paper to announce the plan, as well as an interior page of the Courier-Life.
Today, however, the ESDC issue an updated community notice (below), announcing the work would begin instead on August 20.
Why? The contractor was not ready to commence work, the ESDC said in response to my query. I assume that refers to the contractor working on Metropolitan Transportation Authority vent structures.
(Was this plan disclosed during the environmental review? Not really.)
