Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park

Janes Walk

Led By Norman Oder, Journalist, Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Report

See what’s been built (the Barclays Center plus 4 of 15 towers) and what’s coming (at least 2 more towers launching this year) within Atlantic Yards (in 2014 renamed Pacific Park Brooklyn), at a crucial crossroads site. Learn the project’s tangled history, uncertain timetable, changing designs (and ownership), and ongoing question marks. Topics include developer promises, affordable housing, arena design, and the changing neighborhood/Brooklyn context.

RSVPs are optional but encouraged!

Friday, May 3
6:00 PM
1-2 hours
