Supporters and Opponents Pack Nets Arena Hearing in Brooklyn

Thursday, August 24, 2006

It was a packed and loud public hearing in Brooklyn over the proposed Nets arena, residential and office complex.

Hundreds lined up to get inside and give their opinion. Supporters say developer Bruce Ratner's proposal will bring jobs and tax revenue to the borough. Opponents say traffic will clog the streets and the 16 high-rises are too large for the neighborhood.

WNYC’s Elaine Rivera was there. She joins Soterios Johnson to discuss the hearing and what’s coming up next.
