WNYC reports that demolition work has been suspended on the Atlantic Yards project. Friday's decision from developer Forest City Ratner came after a partial collapse of the Ward Bakery's roof parapet on Thursday. Workers were removing asbestos, and readying the building for demolition.
In related news, an all-day workshop to create a community-driven development plan for Brooklyn's Vanderbilt Yards took place today at Hanson Place United Methodist Church. More details at the Develop Don't Destroy Web site.
