Unveiled: the Brooklyn Nets Arena-Barclays Center
Brief Report: BBN was at the Brooklyn Nets Arena/Barclays Center for its unveiling today. The arena will officially open on September 28.
Russian billionaire and new Brooklyn Nets owner, Mikhail Prokhorov, was at the ceremony, along with real estate mogul Bruce Ratner, and other city and state electeds who support the Atlantic Yards Project.
Like it or not, the Barclay’s Center is here. It appears “Goliath” won the battle, as one New York media outlet headlined. Still, the “Davids’” in this nine year battle will protest at next week’s official opening. The word is Occupy Wall Street will join in several protests to highlight the economic injustice represented in this real estate developer’s delight. Stay tuned.
