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

OK, the Quality of Life meeting once scheduled for Sept. 25 will not happen; no AY CDC meeting set yet, either

Last December, when Empire State Development, the state authority overseeing/shepherding Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, released the 2018 schedule for the bi-monthly Quality of Life meetings, the date September 25 was tentatively set.

Guess what: it's not happening. Not only has ESD not solicited topics for the meeting, a message from an ESD official to a community member confirmed that the meeting will not be held on that date, and that a new date is being sought.

Also, there's been no meeting of the Atlantic Yards Community Development Corporation (AY CDC) since March. The group is supposed to meet quarterly, so an end-of-September meeting would get the schedule under the wire.

As I wrote, there are a lot of questions to be raised at the next public meeting, notably about the project timetable.
