These videos created to market the Atlantic Yards project to foreign investors - or should I say people who are being bribed with green cards in return for investing in this debacle - are really something else...
From Atlantic Yards Report:
Markowitz claims, incredibly, "Brooklyn is 1000 percent, 1000 percent behind Atlantic Yards."
He knows that's false. But it could help save Forest City Ratner some $191 million under the dubious exploitation of a federal program in which immigrant investors get green cards for themselves and their families in exchange for purportedly job-creating investments.
Markowitz closes by asserting that "there's nothing better than China and Brooklyn together."
There's some irony there, given that the version shown here is subtitled in Korean.
Meanwhile, the City apparently lured Caribbean teachers here with promises of green cards and never delivered on it.
