There it is, folks: The start of demolition for Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards. Reports say they're knocking down a disused bus depot to create a temporary rail yard so that construction can begin. From the AP's pictures, it just looks like they're using a really big bulldozer to move some barrels and take down a chain-link fence. Either way, historic!
