something rotten in the state of new amsterdam?

How can you not break out your foil hat?

Yesterday, I wrote about both the questionable rush to approval on the Atlantic Yards project, and the positively un-American anti-protest rules being put forth by the NYPD. Both stories have much in common, to my mind (like the de-New Yorking of New York), but I failed to spot this little bit of conspiracy theory-fueling synergy:

  • The hearing for public comment on the Atlantic Yards project—August 23rd.
  • The hearing for public comment on the NYPD's anti-protest rules—August 23rd.

Thanks to Gothamist for catching this little “coincidence.”

(I've got a bit more on the NYPD vs. the City Council here.)
