Read Marshall Brown's 'Back to the Garden: The Ecological Evolution of Atlantic Yards' and this piece of writing is amazing how he sums up the history and refers to the present and his ideas of sustainability excluding monetary profits, enhancing environment and enriching culture is appreciable. Hope to read all the book sometime soon.
