Ratner vs. Critics: Getting Uglier...and Prettier, Too

The stars are coming out against Bruce Ratner's plan for a Nets arena and mini-city. Ratner has found the man who sent fake emails in his name and is suing. Critics claim Ratner's support for local sports groups is cynical. So is a newsletter in Harlem trumpeting his project's benefits, they add. An anti-project model finds her picture on a pro-project brochure. And on and on it goes. Meanwhile, the project now has $200 million set aside in city and state budgets for infrastructure improvements.
