Brooklyn Arena Close to Final Approval

In spite of new critiques of its Times Square-like signage, its effect on "Brownstone Brooklyn", its wind tunnel gusts and even anti-Bruce Ratner Christmas carols, the Nets' new arena at the corner of Atlantic and Flatbush avenues in Brooklyn is one step closer today.
