3-D Ratner Plans in a 2-D Prospect Heights

Illustrator and Daily Heights contributor Jon Keegan cobbles together the above fantasy image, which is bound to warm the cockles of developer Forest City Ratner's corporate heart. It's a Google Earth snapshot of what Prospect Heights might expect to look like if the Atlantic Yards/Nets arena development goes along as feared, designed especially "so you can see how monstrous it is." Granted, isn't it cheating a bit to make all the existing buildings 2-D?

UPDATE: Ok, ok, so there are shots available that actually show surrounding "Brownstone Brooklyn" in all its 3-D (modestly sized) glory.
