Battle Over, But Not Divided Opinion

JR Tallent

Opinion over a Nets arena in Brooklyn has always been divided. At the beginning, large rallies were held in places like Prospect Park; funds were raised in Brooklyn and elsewhere and a multitude of legal actions were filed but failed. Still, polls never showed the project to be unpopular in Brooklyn...or in the city.

Now, there's but one lawsuit still out there and it won't affect the arena's progress. Most people seemed resigned to the prospect and some, like this artist on a lazy Saturday, seem to be embracing it. Still, the controversy endures. The latest evidence: the release of a documentary on the entire seven-year long battle, which is getting good reviews while architectural critics continue to give the overall plan bad reviews.
