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

Times on Newswalk condo: "The Atlantic Yards run behind the building, which will mean living with construction at some point." (Um...)

From the New York Times Real Estate section today, On the Market, "a one-bedroom, one-bath, architect-renovated, 1,107-square-foot, loft-style apartment" at 535 Dean Street in the Newswalk building.

Pros include large rooms and closets, a renovated kitchen, proximity to subways, and shopping.

Cons: "The Atlantic Yards run behind the building, which will mean living with construction at some point. The unit does not have a washer-dryer, but there is a hookup in the foyer closet."

Well, credit the Times with more candor than the typical real-estate agent. Still, the article repeats a common error: Atlantic Yards is (was) the name of a project, not a place.

Just to be clear, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Vanderbilt Yard, the largest component of the 22-acre site dubbed Atlantic Yards, and renamed Pacific Park Brooklyn, is across the street.

And yes, there should be construction of three towers on the western block of the railyard, and three on the eastern block, likely through 2035.
