Condemnation of Arena Land On Hold

A Brooklyn state court judge declined to transfer title of private property in the Atlantic Yards footprint to the ESDC Friday, the key step in condemnation proceedings. Judge Abraham Gerges, saying the property owners were "entitled to a review of their claims," promised to "proceed expeditiously." Critics argue that the project has changed so much that it's basically not the same and needs to be reviewed.
