This article from today's Wall Street Journal has some interesting info about the situation.
Thanks to everyone for all the support. The pledges and words of encouragement have given us such a great burst of energy to move forward with the film.
We are posting a short scene today that was cut from the film.
On the day that the City Council planned to hold hearings on the Atlantic Yards Daniel Goldstein and Patty Hagan talked to a tv reporter about the event. The actual city council hearing was informational only. The city council had no say over the project.
Today it became clear that FCR is planning on taking down a beautiful building, 475 Dean Street, that used to house artists. All of the owners sold the developer because they feared that their homes would be seized by eminent domain if they didn't. Sam the Violin maker was featured in an earlier slide show but I wanted to put up most of the pictures I took in his place to show how UNBLIGHTED the apartments in this building were.
