Big Day for Ratner's Planned 'Nets City'

Bids are due today for the air rights over the Brooklyn Atlantic Rail Yards and Bruce Ratner is expected to be the only bidder. Ratner needs to make a deal with the yards' owner, New York's Metropolitan Transit Agency, before he can build a new Nets arena or the rest of his "instant skyline". The planned new city of 15,000 would consist of 17 new buildings, including a new 62-story tower that would be Brooklyn's tallest.
