This is the footprint of the Atlantic Yards project (in yellow).
The red outline shows a large piece of property that, according to opponents, contains a lot the state forgot to condemn, which means the entire project is now in really serious jeopardy, if not dead.
And that payment that Bruce Ratner is making to Daniel Goldstein to get him out by Friday is really just a lot of money down the toilet now from Ratner's perspective, because Goldstein really was never the last obstacle. Actually, the last obstacle is the state's own stupidity.
How wonderfully ironic yet completely appropriate is this?
