My Brooklyn Nets Arena


With the announcement of the Nets playing at what is currently the Atlantic Yards, Brooklyn is given a chance to make a huge mark architecturally in the world. So when developers Forest City Ratner scrapped a promising design that will no doubt advance the skyline of downtown Brooklyn in favor of something much more traditional, it's to no one's surprise that both the public and government officials are puzzled how exactly this decision will fulfilled the excitement and advancement in arts as promised when the project was being pitched. For goodness sakes, the thing looks like a second-rate college basketball gym. Is it too late to take back my pseudo-enthusiasm? (NYT)
