If buildings had lungs, four properties in the Atlantic Yards footprint (189 Flatbush (pictured), 191 Flatbush, 193 Flatbush and 618 Pacific Street) would be breathing a huge sigh of relief this morning. With a demonstration planned to coincide with the start of demolition of a cluster of buildings near the intersection of Flatbush and Dean this morning, Develop Don’t Destroy petitioned the Manhattan State Supreme Court for a Temporary Restraining order against Forest City Ratner yesterday. After a two hour session, FCR agreed to call off the bulldozers until the end of the week to give Justice Joan Madden time to consider the case. If the TRO gets denied, the rally will most likely be held on Monday morning at 8 a.m.
