1,000 Expected at Hearing on Nets' Arena

More than a thousand people are expected to show up Wednesday afternoon at a public hearing on Bruce Ratner's plans for a new Nets' arena and surrounding mini-city. The Empire State Development Corporation, which granted preliminary approval to the $4.2 billion project, has requested public comments. Both proponents and critics are expected to attend, with critics trying to delay the plan by claiming the approval was based on faulty data.
