Messengers went door-to-door yesterday in Brooklyn, delivering condemnation notices to those residents and businesses whose buildings will be demolished to make way for the Nets' new Brooklyn arena. About 60 households and 13 businesses are being targeted for eminent-domain seizure. Each has until January 11 to mount a legal challenge. The arena and the rest of Bruce Ratner's $4.2 billion project could get final approval as early as next Wednesday.
