Schumer Unsure Brooklyn Project Can Get Stimulus Money

Sen. Charles Schumer, one of the architects of the federal stimulus package--and a big supporter of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards--said Thursday he did not know if the project would qualify for any of the $2.8 billion New York City will get in stimulus funds. Ratner has hired former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, now a lobbyist, to help him secure funds from the stimulus package.
