Reason TV has a short video available on YouTube about the Atlantic Yards project. They focus on the famous Freddy's Bar as a healthy community institution that shouldn't be taken in the name of comprehensive development. Reason says that Atlantic Yards isn't a legitimate public use, but instead is eminent domain abuse. Check it out and decide for yourself. (Link posted w/ permission).
The legal case, at any rate, was kind of a slam dunk under NY law.
