Arena, 2011? The three-year bridge reconstruction clock hasn't started

Atlantic Yards Report

AK-CarltonAveBridge01.jpgDeveloper and Nets owner Bruce Ratner has finally publicly conceded that a new arena won't happen in time for the 2009-2010 season, but now recent revelations from the hastily assembled Final Environmental Impact Statement cast doubt on the 2010-2011 season.
