Sharpton to the Rescue

As the Times and News are reporting today, Al Sharpton has decided to support the Atlantic Yards project (full disclosure). The key point here for us is that the Reverend made it a point to single out the CBA signed by Ratner and a consortium of community groups. It may not be a perfect agreement, but it is the first such effort in NYC and it certainly is an agreement that others can use to promote accountable development.
