How Timely

Today, in the Atlantic Yards Report, there is a review of Lance Freeman's book that I referenced yesterday. The Atlantic Yards Report is a blog dedicated to coverage of the gigantic development company ForestCityRatner's Atlantic Yards Development Project which is going to put expensive condo towers smack-dab in the middle of Brooklyn's downtown. The author of the blog, Norman Oder originally started his coverage in this NYT article and has expanded to cover development in much of Brooklyn.

It is a great review to read because Oder knows the Clinton Hill area that Freeman studies and so it is an interesting take on what Freeman says. I am a little disappointed that Oder didn't bring up Freeman's "political" solution (in addition to the more policy-wonk solutions) of active Alinsky-style organizing, but it still does not detract much from the review.
