‘Net’ Loss is Devastating

So sad. So irreversible. And so inevitable… Sure, Ratner says he still plans to build. Yippie! The new arena design now on the table bears as much resemblance to Gehry’s as a Dumpster does to his Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao.

The Post’s Steve Cuozzo is clearly not impressed with Ratner’s AY bait and switch (“there’s no way to sugar-coat the calamity”). Instead of great architecture that celebrates Brooklyn, we’re now faced with “Atlantic Terminal North”. In other words, yet another value-engineered shopping center from the folks that brought you Metro Tech. (Clearly I’m on a different page from Marty on this switch.)
