Can Atlantic Yards Work for Brooklyn?

Well, can it work? As objective reporters, The Real Estate is not about to weigh in on that one. But tomorrow night, The Municipal Art Society will be hosting a public meeting asking that very question.

The full release is after the jump.

At 5:30 p.m. promptly on Thursday, June 15, the Municipal Art Society will make a presentation for the news media on the Forest City Ratner proposal for Atlantic Yards. The presentation will take place in advance of a public meeting and discussion of the proposal scheduled for 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. The venue for the news conference and public meeting is the Hanson Place Central United Methodist Church, 144 Saint Felix St. in Brooklyn.

The sponsors of the event are State Senator Velmanette Montgomery, State Assembly Members Joan Millman and James Brennan, and City Council Member Letitia James, joined by the Atlantic Avenue Betterment Association, the Boerum Hill Association, the Brooklyn Heights Association, the Fort Greene Association, the Society for Clinton Hill, the Park Slope Civic Council and the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council.

No RSVP is required. Transit: B, D, M, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, 5 and LIRR to Atlantic Ave./Pacific St.; G to Fulton St.; C to Lafayette Ave.
