Poll: New Yorkers Favor Brooklyn Arena, Ratner Project

A poll sponsored by WCBS, WNYC and the New York Observer showed that New Yorkers support the idea of the new Nets arena as well as the larger mini-city being proposed by Nets owner Bruce Ratner. A plurality--39 percent--of the 538 voters polled said they support it, 23 percent oppose it, and the rest were undecided. Support was even stronger among Brooklynites (50 percent) and black men (59 percent) throughout the city. And the more people know about the plan, the more they support it.
