"It's no news to us that the Atlantic Yards project, which has always been financially not a viable project, is now suffering even more because of what's going on with the economy, " said Daniel Goldstein of the community coalition Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn. "Now what we're faced with is a project that no one ever asked for, no one ever bargained for, which would be an arena, and maybe a tower around it, and a bunch of demolition sites or vacant lots."
