It’s been more than a year since Atlantic Yards broke ground, and more than four years since the project was approved. Now construction may take 25 years or longer. Promised jobs and affordable housing haven’t materialized, while hundreds of millions of tax payer dollars have been spent already.
Join the BrooklynSpeaks sponsors , Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries, State Senator Velmanette Montgomery and other local elected officials Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 2:00PM at Atlantic Terrace for a community forum on real reform of Atlantic Yards oversight. Find out what community organizations and local legislators are doing to make Forest City Ratner and the Empire State Development Corporation accountable to Brooklyn and to New York City.

Yes, I know this episode is much longer than one minute (the entire conversation was about 10 minutes). Rules are meant to be broken, right?
