Arena Demolitions Accelerate as Street Plans Decelerate

Bruce Ratner is expected to pick up the pace of demolitions for the Nets' new Brooklyn arena in the next few weeks, preparing to tear down the largest building on the site, an abandoned bakery. Meanwhile, residents living near the arena site are trying to block city plans to make two streets one-way, believing they will become high speed lanes for drivers from New Jersey to get to and from Ratner's Barclay Center.
