We've seen some messed up stuff before when it comes to Atlantic Yards. And
maybe this is not the most messed up Ratner action but it is one of the more
Remember: this is a mitigation(!) from the ESDC (the
agency holding tomorrow's hearing)
and presumably the DOT (did the DOT really approve this?) to deal with the impact
of Ratner's boondoggle.
Thanks but no thanks:
(Corner of Pacific
Street and 6th Avenue)
Yes, they've turned the sidewalk into a lane of the road. And as we took these
photos we saw a number of confused pedestrians walking down the "road"
and confused drivers wondering why they were supposed to drive on the sidewalk.
It will be pure luck if nobody is hurt by this mess.
In case anyone thought this was not a safety hazard for pedestrians, please
see the pedestrians below walking down the middle of the sidewalk, er, street.
