Walking Tour of Atlantic Yards Footprint with Norman Oder

If you're interested in gettting a handle on the proposed mega-project called Atlantic Yards and learning about the community which it will erase or impact deeply, your moment has arrived. Norman Oder, the man behind Atlantic Yards Report, will be offering a walking tour of the "footprint" on Saturday, Nov. 4. Mr. Oder's coverage of the proposal and the controversy is easily the most comprehensive and intelligent of any journalist or blogger, so getting a tour of the area from him will be an opportunity to learn a tremendous amount about the project.

The tour will be offered on Saturday, November 4, at 1:30 p.m. The cost is $15/person. The rain date is Sunday November 12 at 1:30 p.m. Given that Mr. Oder does not give Atlantic Yards thumbnail treatment, the tour will last 2-2.5 hours. Meet up point is the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, Hanson Place at Flatbush Avenue. More information is available in Mr. Oder's post about the walking tour or by clicking here for his New York Like a Native tours site.

There are few guarantees in life, but one of them is that you will know a lot more about Atlantic Yards and its impact after you spend some time with Mr. Oder.
