Flashback to December 2010: "Most Anti-Climactic Groundbreaking Award: Atlantic Yards"

I missed this one, from Design Observer 12/24/10, Lunch With The Critics: Year-End Awards:

Lange had previously slammed New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff for, among other things, his coverage of Atlantic Yards.
