Fort Greene Getting Slam Dunked Again

"A stark box does not seem to be the best choice," deadpans one critic of a new basketball arena proposed for a prime block in Fort Greene. No, not Atlantic Yards—rather, this is St. Joseph’s College's plan to build a 330-seat hoop den on Clinton Ave. (between Dekalb and Willoughby). Renderings haven't been released, but the Brooklyn Paper hears that the façade "will include a stone base, metal screening and a mostly glass rear side." The showdown will continue at the Landmark Preservation Commission, which still must approve the design. LPC: It's faaan-tastic! [BP]
