Ah, now we know what that mysterious smoke was...
Probably Bruce Ratner "sparking up" with some Barclays Center construction workers, if his rambling at this morning's press conference, as recounted by Atlantic Yards Report, is any indication:
"As Jay-Z knows, this arena is largely about the children and youth of Brooklyn," Ratner said. "We can give them more moments--each one of us has had a time in our life--that first circus, that first basketball game, that first ice hockey, or whatever it happens to be--we all remember those moments, and we want to give those first warm moments to every child in Brooklyn and have that feeling and inspiration that'll lead them to become more Jay-Z's, more Brett Yormarks, more of the many, many people who are out here."
