Writer Calls Ratner's Atlantic Yards Corrupt

Charles Taylor becomes the latest Brooklyn writer to take issue with Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards in a national publication, trashing its architecture of "sixteen drunkenly swaying skyscrapers" in the liberal journal, "Dissent". Taylor adds that the project has "stirred up racial tension" in Brooklyn and calls it an example of epic "corruption, cronyism, and obeisance to private interest".
