It’s official: It’s no park

Editorial: A park is a park, and a project a project. As a policy, The Brooklyn Papers has, when reporting on the proposed development along the Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO waterfronts, generally referred to it as a “project” or a “development,” but certainly not a park. Comment.

OUTSPOKEN ART       

Atlantic Yards: Where the female’s torso would be, there is a zigzag cutout, reminiscent of a puzzle piece, or maybe half a bear trap. The claw-like shape rests on curvaceous legs, twisted in a half crouch and flexing a naked derriere. Beneath the imposing posterior lies another cutout: the smaller, missing half of the puzzle/trap, from which a male hand reaches upward, yearning toward the towering bronze buttocks above. Comment.
