On Sunday, Norman Oder of Atlantic Yards Report pointed out another case of a slightly deceptive Gehry-Ratner rendering.
Here's the visual aid.
By the way, can you tell from this graphic that the Williamsburgh Savings Bank, at right, is actually 108 feet shorter than the 620-foot Miss Brooklyn, the tallest building in the proposed Atlantic Yards plan? Or that the bank is just one foot taller than the second-tallest building proposed? It sure doesn't look that way.
In terms of scale, bulk and density, you really have to look carefully — these days, all of the Ratner-Gehry promotional material is looking a little deceptive, and seems to articulate the message that the project isn't really as big as everyone says it is.
