City Would Entertain Request for More Atlantic Yards Subsidies, Lieber Says

Deputy Mayor Robert Lieber, speaking yesterday at a Crain’s breakfast forum, was asked whether he would be open to giving more city subsidies to Forest City Ratner’s more than $4 billion Atlantic Yards development in Brooklyn. His noncommittal response:

“We have not received any kinds of requests, formally, from Forest City Ratner to date. But we’re open minded and we’ll listen, and if it makes sense, we’ll do it.”
