Transit-Oriented Development Forum

9:39 AM EST on November 3, 2006

Norman "The Human Tape Reco'der" Oder cranks out a nice report on this week's Transit-Oriented Development forum at NYU for his blog, Atlantic Yards Report:

"There's a lot of bad car development going on," he said, citing big box stores on Bruckner Boulevard in the Bronx or in Red Hook. Even projects near transportation hubs, he added, citing Atlantic Yards, show "it's possible to do design that isn't the best transit-oriented development."
