So, young Nicolai has weighed in with his opinion on the Atlantic Yards bait-and-switch. While I might not share in his enthusiasm for our neighbor from the North, I do continue to marvel over the cut rate Metroteching that Forest City Ratner’s pushing for. Couple that with the complete failure of the BAM LDC/cultural district, the rise of the Oro, Toren and the newly named Brooklyner, not to mention the fact that Gage & Tollner is going to become an Arby’s, and all one can do is fret. Here’s the latest on the new arena, with renderings leaked to the NYT posted on their City Room blog.


Ever get the feeling you’re being cheated?

Had dinner last night with everyone’s favorite transtemporal timetravela, along with the missuses. Good food and great company after a long winter’s hibernation kept us apart. If anyone hasn’t experienced Jonathan doing his thing, you should be able to get a taste of it here. Heard Otis Redding singing You Left the Water Running on the way over, and then JJ dug up a gorgeous version of Soloman Burke covering He’ll Have to Go (“Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone…”). Excellent way to cap off the weekend.

You could be a homepage now!
