Last week, the Empire State Development Corporation said that Atlantic Yards was not shovel-ready; now the agency is saying it is ready. “I am afraid that my office put out some inaccurate information regarding Atlantic Yards and whether it was shovel-ready," said ESDC spokesman Warner Johnston. The implication, says Atlantic Yards Report, "is that Atlantic Yards is in the mix for some sort of stimulus funds--likely to build the railyard that Forest City doesn't want to pay for."
