The Barbra Streisand announcement, finally; Markowitz, Yormark talk it up on Fox5
Atlantic Yards Report
"She's not touring," said Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark, so this will be one-shot, Streisand's first performance in Brooklyn. He also said Jay-Z will perform five concerts, a number not previously revealed, and will have several "guests."
"I think it was Bruce Ratner's vision, as well as Marty's, to bring Barbra home," Yormark said.
"We never had a venue," said Borough President Marty Markowitz. "We finally have a facility that shows Brooklyn respect."
NoLandGrab: Right, Marty, the Atlantic Yards project has been all about showing Brooklyn respect.
