Responding to the ESDC on Atlantic Yards

The pro-forma public hearings have come and gone, and we are now in a public comment period. It is vital that everyone in the community let the ESDC and the 3 Men in a Room (Governor Paterson, Assemblyman Sheldon Silver, and…some guy in the State Senate…) know that this is totally unacceptable!

Why Should I Comment?

Government only works when the Public is paying attention. Atlantic Yards has been designed to keep the Public out of the process. As a result, we’re looking at billions in subsidies and grants with no real public benefits on the horizon, all just to build an arena and blight the neighborhoods. Our money. Our neighborhoods.

  1. Didn’t I get this message in an email from CBN earlier this week? They have a whole series going! Did they lift your stuff, or the other way around?
