A group of prominent opponents to Forest City Ratner’s Atlantic Yards development unveiled an alternative plan yesterday. As summarized in the Brooklyn Eagle, my favorite three elements are as follows:
 It would be lower-rise than Atlantic Yards (the tallest building would rise 400 feet), and it would  confine itself to the area directly over the Long Island Railroad’s Vanderbilt Railyards [sic].
 It also would open up new streets to connect Prospect Heights to Fort Greene, rather than de-mapping some local streets as the Atlantic Yards plan would.
A scale model of the “Unity Plan” is currently on display at the Soapbox Gallery, at 636 Dean Street in Prospect Heights.
