Ratner Casts Long Shadow on Brooklyn

Bruce Ratner's planned $3.5 billion Atlantic Yards development would put much of a nearby neighborhood in a permanent winter twilight, a Pratt College professor claims. He says the 16 skyscrapters and Nets arena would cast long shadows over Fort Greene in the winter time. The shadow issue is the latest as the Nets owner tries to get approval for the project this summer in hopes of ground breaking by year's end.
