B'KLYN 'YARD' WORK HALTED
The move to halt the demolition and abatement work came at the request of Councilwoman Letitia James, the Council of Brooklyn Neighborhoods, and residents living within a zone that Ratner wants to replace with an NBA arena and 16 skyscrapers.
"The ESDC [needs] to convene an oversight body to ensure that if work resumes, there is an accountable body for the public and elected officials to turn to," the group Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn said.
