Apparently too impatient for developer Forest City Ratner to release the latest (Frank Gehry-free?) pared-down version for the basketball/high-living complex Atlantic Yards, the Post went ahead and commissioned the bizarre Ebbets Field-inspired take seen above left. Which led us to commission an even more retro, neo-classical vision, above right. We'd say it's at best a tossup as to which vision gets built. Meantime, pace Restless, we invite you to submit your vision of the new Atlantic Yards to firstname.lastname@example.org; we'll publish any gems.
