Atlantic Yards on Ice?

Brooklyn mascot Marty Markowitz is getting a bit greedy now, demanding that a second professional sports franchise get moved to the borough. The NHL's New York Islanders may be looking to leave Long Island, and while a Queens official already pitched Willets Point as a potential home, Markowitz said yesterday, "Brooklyn is the only place they should consider." He added: "We'd even let them keep their name since we're technically still on Long Island." That's kind of catchy! Maybe he'll create another wacky road sign that reads, "Welcome to Brooklyn: You're Technically Still on Long Island!" [NYP]
