Critics Endorse Virtual Walking Tour of Atlantic Yards

An NYU student's video thesis on Brooklyn's Atlantic Yards--Bruce Ratner's plans for a 17-building mini-city anchored by the Nets' new arena--has caught the attention of critics. The student, Edward Purver, visually contrasts Ratner's vision of the area with those of others rejected by the state, offering virtual walking tours at street level. Critics contend it is one more piece of evidence that the project overwhelms the neighborhood.
