In this week’s Forefront story, Dan Rosenblum unravels the complicated saga leading up to Brooklyn’s much-discussed megaproject, Atlantic Yards. Taking a look at the community-developer agreements that made the project possible, Rosenblum explores how local leaders have reacted to both the met and unmet standards set down in the negotiation process.

Paul Gargagliano’s photography accompanied the story. Below, we have a slideshow of extra images that illustrate downtown Brooklyn’s evolving spatial and social landscape. Use the white arrows to toggle between photos.
