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

The Barclays Center, as symbol

From Photo Requests from Solitary Confinement in The New Yorker, 7/7/19, about a "program, begun by a group of lawyers, community members, artists, currently and formerly incarcerated men and their families based in Chicago, to fulfill the photography requests of inmates being held in solitary confinement."

Now, after six years, it's now known as Photo Requests from Solitary. A exhibition was held recently at the Brooklyn Public Library. From the article:
In the box, time stands still and it doesn’t. Chris asked to see a photograph of the Barclays Center, in downtown Brooklyn, which had been built while he was incarcerated. “I just want to see it the best way the photographer can capture it. To feel as if I’m right there,” he wrote.
