As Ratner, Critics Await Court, Construction Continues

A temporary restraining order prevents New York state from beginning condemnation at the Atlantic Yards, but Bruce Ratner has construction workers beginning the process of moving Long Island Railroad tracks. The tracks will be moved and then decked over to support the Nets arena and the projects' 16 towers. A federal appeals court is expected to rule soon on whether the state can condemn properties in the way of the project.
