This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, offers analysis, commentary, and reportage about the $4.9B project to build the Barclays Center arena and 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn. Dubbed Atlantic Yards by developer Forest City Ratner in 2003, it was rebranded Pacific Park Brooklyn in 2014 after the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group bought a 70% stake going forward. As of 2018, after the arena and four towers were built, Greenland will own 95% of future construction.

On Instagram: can anyone help with this Pacific Park translation?
As I commented: Can someone help me with the narration here? Sounds like, "The New York way of life is a place that largely happened by accident. But what if it happened on purpose?" But maybe I'm hearing it wrong?
Update: The New York that we love.
Either way, it sounds... pretty odd for a Pacific Park promotion.
