Groundbreaking Set for Brooklyn

After scoring another legal victory today against Brooklyn residents fighting the condemnation of their homes, Bruce Ratner is reportedly planning a groundbreaking for the Nets new arena on March 11, according to a Daily News Report.

Expect preliminary construction work around the site to start heating up, in the meantime, according to the report. Evictions won’t begin until a few months.

Patrons at Freddy’s Bar are already planning their protest:

“There’s chains on the bar and a lot of people will be buying handcuffs,” said Freddy’s regular and opposition organizer Steve de Seve.
