What about the material lying around on the ground? Are they just going to leave the footbridges there for the winter, as the pool of water accumulates?

Nets claim arena three-quarters full; photos again show otherwise

With an announced attendance of 15,364, the Izod Center was allegedly more than three-quarters full for the game last night between the New Jersey Nets and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

This week, the (print) Brooklyn Paper ignores AY news

So this week news breaks that Forest City Ratner has bailed out the national advocacy organization ACORN, and that it has stopped all work at the Vanderbilt Yard.

This week they give us a screaming headline about how a hapless pizza delivery guy vandalized an elevator.
