Urban Design Group Blasts Ratner Plan

The Municipal Arts Society, a respected architectural and design, group said Thursday that it did not believe that Bruce Ratner's plans for a Nets arena and mini-city was "good for Brooklyn". The group, prodded by the project's critics, said that the scale of the $3.5 billion project would burden both the asthetics and traffic patterns of nearby neighborhoods. The city and state are expected to approve the plan by year's end.
