Construction Workers Dominate Atlantic Yards Hearing

New, comments

Construction workers chanting "Jobs!" and "New York Nets!" dominated a State Senate hearing Friday on Atlantic Yards. Workers booed and heckled critics of the project as well. At the hearing, state officials said the Barclays Center may be downsized. Among possible changes: fewer luxury suites. The officials confirmed Bruce Ratner wants to reduce what he owes the MTA, owner of the railyards beneath the arena.
