Bloomberg Doubles City Funds for Barclays Center

In the mayor's capital improvements budget released last week, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has quietly doubled the amount of city funds earmarked for Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards/Barclays Center project. The $205 million will go for city improvements around the new Nets arena. The state of New York has already earmarked $100 million for improvements. Critics see the increase as more pork for Ratner.
