Gehry’s latest vision for the stadium is less than 25 feet from the street, and though it would use more metal than the previous glass version, Rosner says it isn’t any safer: “Gehry's use of odd angles, dead spaces, hollows and overhangs means that should there ever be a car or truck bomb, the effects would be amplified. According to FEMA, reflected blast waves can be ten or more times as powerful as the initial explosive force.” He's calling for a new environmental review. [Atlantic Yards Report]
