Critics of Bruce Ratner's plans for a new Brooklyn arena and surrounding mini-city have gone digital. In trying to show just how dense the $3.5 billion project would be when completed in 2016, they have used Google Earth hacks. Photographs of nearby neighborhoods are overlaid with the architect's renderings. The resulting 3-D views include one of what the new Nets arena would look like, overlaid on Brooklyn's busiest intersection, Atlantic and Flatbush avenues.
