Critics of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards are claiming that the dramatic increase in the cost of the Nets' arena requires new approvals by New York State. They contend the project's economics have changed so drastically it must be reviewed. Lawyers hint they may sue. Meanwhile in an interview with WNYC, Times real estate writer Charles Bagli suggests Ratner may still complete the project but it could take years.
