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

Selective enforcement, Brooklyn style: a mistakenly-imprisoned guy gets summonsed for sitting in a park without a minor, but Atlantic Yards construction workers go unscathed

From today's New York Times, Exoneration for a Man in Prison for 2 Years:
When Mr. [Lawrence] Williams left the courthouse on Friday with his name cleared, he bought a sandwich with his wife and went to a nearby park to watch the children play. But on the very day that he was released, he was roped back into the system. A police officer gave him a summons for sitting in the park without a minor.
And how many times have Atlantic Yards construction workers done that, even smoking, without being summonsed?
