Arena Park, Affordable Housing Latest Issues for Ratner Project

Critics of Bruce Ratner's plans for a Nets arena and mini-city are now attacking the developer for supposedly reneging on two promises to the local community. They charge Ratner agreed to permit public use of a park atop the new Nets arena and to make half the 7,000 units of housing "affordable". Now, they say, the park will only be accessible to those living in the mini-city and only one-third of the housing will be low-cost. Ratner disagrees.
