Brooklyn Nets: It will happen
The MTA has just approved the sale of land to developer Ratner . Who will now get to build office buildings and a basketball arena in the Atlantic Avenue area of Brooklyn, right by the LIRR station and all the main subways that serve Brooklyn.
Nothing will stop this deal from happening now, I don't think. And I think it is a good thing. The Gehry-designed buildings are interesting. This will give Brooklyn a true center, something I don't think it has ever had. Can't wait. I don't even like basketball, but I will root for the Brooklyn Nets.
