Ratner: "We will build Atlantic Yards"

While protestors and construction workers staged counter rallies at the site of his planned Atlantic Yards, Bruce Ratner penned a guest column in the Daily News. He promised a 10-year build-out for the project, starting with the Nets' arena. "We anticipate finishing all of Atlantic Yards by 2018," he wrote. Ratner blamed critics and the economy for the project's slow-down, and doesn't even mention Newark. And in a Record poll, Jerseyans want the IZOD Center shut down soon.
