The Daily News "advertorial" on the arena groundbreaking

Atlantic Yards Report

It's not online, as far as I can tell, but today's New York Daily News includes an eight-page section with numerous advertisement for and about the Barclays Center, and one piece of text, a column by Denis Hamill (he of the 10,000 jobs fiction) reminiscing about the Dodgers.

To quote DDDB, in another context, it is not to be missed.

Yes, they're playing it as the second coming of the Dodgers, despite the obvious enormous contrasts.

Funny, but the section is not labeled "advertorial."

NoLandGrab: There was a day when the News was the working man's newspaper. Now it's owned by a billionaire real estate developer intent on puffing up multi-multi-millionaire real estate developers.
