The latest chapter in the Atlantic Yards saga is set to open this week in Albany. The New York Court of Appeals is prepared to hear oral arguments this Wednesday over whether the state bears the right to condemn property and sell it for development. Many business owners and residents in the Atlantic Yards’ neighborhood have been vocal in their opposition of the project, saying that the Empire State Development Corp. has overstepped its bounds and that it doesn’t have the right to force them out.
