Brooklyn Pols Want Ratner to Scale Back

A group of six Brooklyn politicians, apparently hearing from their constituents, is introducing a bill that would cut the size of the project to by one third. In exchange, the bill would slash by two thirds the amount Ratner has to pay to the MTA for the right to build on the Atlantic Yards. The new Nets arena would not be effected but Ratner has said the economics of the project is dependent on its large scale.
