Amateur video shot by critics of Atlantic Yards as well as news videos show for the first time foundation walls going up around Barclays Center. Since work began on the arena, construction has been largely confined to excavation and infrastructure improvements, like upgrading electrical, water and sewer lines. An ESDC spokesman called the latest activity, which includes work on an arena subway station, "the first steps of major construction."
The video and other images also show demolition scaffolding around the two remaining buildings on the arena site, one of which was once the home of leading critic Daniel Goldstein.
