Full Court Press…


“For New Yorkers who live and work within the “footprint” of Forest City Ratner’s Atlantic Yards project… Last week’s Supreme Court ruling makes it all the more likely those who have not yet succumbed to the intense pressure to sell out will eventually be forced out. They will be required to make way for a 19,000-seat luxury pleasure dome and 19 high-rise towers that will all be owned and operated by one very big, wealthy and well-connected real estate development company. Could this possibly be the sort of “public use” the Founders had in mind when they wrote the constitutional language that enables eminent domain?”
