DOT cut a much more generous deal with Forest City than was initially made public and ESDC perpetuated the myth to the appelate court, according to a fascinating and detailed expose yesterday on the Atlantic Yards Report. ESDC first told the public in 2007′s Final Environmental Impact Statement that the bridge would be closed for two years. A Freedom of Information Act request by AY Report’s Norman Oder, however, revealed that Forest City has three years to complete the project with another two years tacked on in the case of an “unavoidable delay.” “The reconstruction of the bridge was not necessary,” Council Member Letitia James said. “Governor Paterson should return the bridge to a state of good repair and reopen it immediately to the community.”
