If you totally heart sports and urban planning but are way tired of all that Brooklyn Ratners arena coverage, then let us point your attention to this blast from the past: the West Side Jets stadium. Turns out the sucker ain't quite dead yet (who knew?). In fact, the Jets and the MTA have set an August 31 deadline to decide whether or not to move forward with the plan?after all, the Jets were awarded the development rights, even though that whole money thing fell through. A source put on a happy face for the Daily News: "The Jets are still weighing their options and are in discussions with potential investors who could fill the $300 million state funding gap, including developers and organized labor." Start holding breath ... now.
