In the past few days, critics of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards have suggested the project, including the Nets' arena, is dead. Not so, says a Ratner official. The arena will be built and the rest of the project merely delayed. Even even one leading critic admits reports of the project's demise are greatly exaggerated. Still, the Yards is just one of several projects, including a new Madison Square Garden, on the ropes.
