Arena Critics Assail Ratner's Architect

Critics of Bruce Ratner's plans for a new Nets' arena in Brooklyn took out their frustrations on his architect, Frank Gehry, instead at a retrospective of the Gehry's work Sunday afternoon. Gehry defended both the plans and Ratner in the face of heated questions and taunts. The critics live nearby or within the footprint of the mini-city Ratner is planning and complain that the Nets' owner has not let them speak with the architect of the $3.5 billion project.
