Fifth Avenue After Gehry: There Goes the Neighborhood

Not to bang the Atlantic Yards drum too loudly today (see posting below), but the images below posted on the Brooklyn Views blog in an item headlined "It's the Scale, Stupid" are too compelling to pass up. They show the view down Fifth Avenue in Park Slope as it currently is and as it would be after the construction of Frank Gehry's Miss Brooklyn tower. The good news: It blocks the current view of the ugly-as-sin Atlantic Center!

I live just off 5th Ave. at Lincoln. Good God, looks like the spaceship had eaten up Atlantic Terminal! Will Markowitz ever come to his senses? While I support an arena over a transportation nexus, the density of the rest is an abomination which must never be built!
