Numerous tours are available over those three days, with no reservations required--just show up. And on Friday, May 4, at 5:30 pm, I'll be offering my now-annual tour of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Brooklyn/Barclays Center:
Explore Brooklyn’s Most Contested Real Estate Project
See what’s been built (arena plus 4 of 15 towers) and what’s coming within Atlantic Yards (in 2014 renamed Pacific Park Brooklyn), and learn the project’s tangled history, shifting timetable, changing ownership, and ongoing question marks.

Meeting point, ending point
We meet outside the Barclays Center--many subway lines available--on the arena plaza, under the oculus (opening to the sky), next to the giant statue that looks like a rock formation.
(One of those question marks, it turns out, is the oculus itself, which has, oddly, flashed bright images in the middle of the night, disturbing neighbors.)
We'll end near the intersection of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street, from which you can reach the 2/3, Q/B, and C trains.
