Bklink: Too Close to the Street?
The Times ventures into Atlantic Yards land by looking at the issues of whether Brooklyn's planned area will be vulnerable to terrorist truck bombs. It discovers the arena will be 20 feet from the street in places, the same distances as Newark's new Prudential Center. In Newark, streets are now closed during events and it's considered a planning embarrassment. In Brooklyn, 20 feet is considered safe. Sort of. Because everyone is stonewalling on giving answers.--NYT
