Atlantic Yards Arborcide

New, 1 comment

There is deforestation and arborcide to report in the environs of the planned Atlantic Yards development. Specifically, "some 86 trees have been disappearing around the Atlantic Yards footprint over the past several months as preconstruction demolition and utility work has continued, prompting some community alarm..." A local City Council Member is calling for "a moratorium on the removal of any more trees, in and around the foot print." There is even suspicion that the trees are being removed as a "p.r. stunt" for a symbolic groundbreaking in November. Say it ain't so. [AYR]
