Well, I guess that's one way to provide a Street Setback

One of the concerns about Forest City's very lousy Atlantic Yards project was that they proposed putting a steel and glass arena flush with Flatbush and Atlantic Avenues, which would only require one truck van to create the world's largest hand grenade. Forest City assured us they had a 'secret' plan - what this great innovation was, is still a mystery. I wish they would share it with officials in Newark, who have to resort to crude concrete barriers to protect their stadium from potential truck bombers.

Well, perhaps Ratner's plan, at least until a force field can be invented, doesn't involve barriers, but parking lots:

Quite the innovators Ratner/Gehry who knew they were on the cutting edge of security architecture?
