Flyer 4

A new Atlantic Yards flyer (Number Four in the series) is now in the mail, according to No Land Grab, which has posted images from the promotional document. The new effort to win over more Brooklynites to the Atlantic Yards side trumpets the endorsements of the project by the New York Times, New York Daily News and the New York Post.

No Land Grab calls the brochure “the latest ‘liar flyer'” and continues by saying, “Forest City Ratner has dropped another bundle of dough on a fourth direct mailer, trying to convince residents of Brooklyn, with a mere four pages, that Atlantic Yards isn’t as bad as they think. This time Ratner lets the daily papers do most of the talking…The joke is that Ratner didn’t include any pictures of tall buildings… again.”

If you live in Brooklyn, it will be arriving in your mailbox soon.
