Marty’s “Evolving” View on Atlantic Yards

Brooklyn Beep Marty Markowitz, running for re-election last fall, criticized the bulk of the proposed Atlantic Yards housing complex. We knew he was only joking, but thought the joke might last a bit longer. Now, in an affidavit in defense of developer Forest City Ratner’s imminent demolition of several buildings in the footprint (PDF), he calls himself an “unqualified supporter of the Atlantic Yards project.”

For more analysis of the affidavits, including one from state Assemblymember Roger Green, another supporter who seemed to be bowing to bulk concerns, go to Times Ratner Report.
