Demolition on Arena Site Could Begin Monday

Demolition of buildings in the way of the Nets new arena could begin as early as Monday after a state appellate court refused critics' pleas to stop it. Bruce Ratner still doesnt have approval for the arena, but razing six buildings at the site will be the first step for the planned half billion dollar arena, the world's most expensive. Critics of the plan still continue to oppose the arena and surrounding mini-city in the heart of Brooklyn.
