Brooklyn Views is a new blog that focuses on the proposed Atlantic Yards development project.
The New York Times had a writeup on the blog's progress this weekend. It explained that "Atlantic Yards may well be the first large-scale urban real estate venture in New York City where opposition has coalesced most visibly in the blogosphere."
Just under a year ago, there was virtually no voice to be heard from the real estate blogging community. These days, we practically run the show! Good luck to Jonathan Cohn, the author of Brooklyn Views Blog!
I'd bet that if Robert Moses were still alive, he and Jane Jacobs would be rival bloggers. It would be interesting to see what Lower Manhattan might look like or whether the BQE would have ever come about.
