As Demolition Nears, Critics Mount New Offensives on Planned Nets' Arena

As Bruce Ratner proceeds with plans to begin demolishing buildings in the way of his new Nets' arena and mini-city, critics continue to fault the $3.5 billion project. The latest: the MTA says it won't put on added trains or buses to serve the new arena, noting the Garden doesn't need them. That, say critics, will lead to gridlock. Others claim knocking down the buildings, which Ratner owns, is illegal and should be stopped before the wrecking ball swings.
