Back in the U-S-S-Yards

New York mag political writer and Fort Greene resident Chris Smith weighs in on Atlantic Yards, for ESPN! He compares it and the woeful Nets to "being compelled to build an addition onto your house for this perpetual embarrassment to live in." But still, now that the arena is actually happening, "Very grudgingly, Brooklyn is starting to peek" at its future NBA team. Btw, the Barclays Center will be the first arena to feature a meditation chamber! After watching some Nets games, we could all use a quiet place to reflect. [ESPN; BK Paper]
