No Stadium - Prospect Heights Action Coalition sign now

We the People? Consent of the governed?
in 1776 - - way cool! 2003? FUHGETABOUDIT!!!

King Marty of Brooklyn wants a pro sports team. Retainer Bruce Ratner says, Ill buy you TWO, the Nets and the Devils, but where will you put them?

King George of Albany orders his court, the MTA, to cede the $1 billion rights to the LIRR Atlantic Terminal to Ratner to erect a 20,000-seat stadium - - and 5,500 units of sky-box housing.

King Mike of Manhattan says, Ill do anything to help Bruce. He helps arrange $300,000,000 in government subsidies.

The Kings subjects dont want the stadium. Illegally wielding the Government's terrifying power of Eminent Domain, the Kings plan to condemn, seize by force and demolish the homes and businesses of 1,000 people for NO PUBLIC USE whatever (ILLEGAL! check: US Constitution-5th & 14th ammendments) & FOR the further private enrichment of Billionaire Private Developer Ratner (The 3 Kings' Pal). The stadium will bring further harm to their villages, little shops and homes, a plague of traffic upon their children, who already suffer from asthma. Theyve paid for their property in heavy taxes and higher MTA fares and they want affordable housing and public playing fields there. The people are rebelling.

We the people say, Hey Kings! You left us out. We are all equal, remember? We Have a voice. Dig it:
NO STADIUM!! BUILDING MORATORIUM NOW!

    The amount of "benefit" 20,000 people will get from 40 Nets games will pale in comparison to the crushing effect upon the spirit/identity of Brooklyn as we know it and makes me wonder why we cannot galvanize to create a great (public) sports complex for e

    Building a sports arena at the proposed site will deeply damage community life in Brooklyn. Doing so by providing huge public subsidies (of several types) and by invoking eminent domain (taking homes and small business from citizens) without any demonstra
  • 02 November 2015986. Stephen Delp
    Keep the Nets in New Jersey. Ratner cares nothing for the team, Brooklyn, or most importantly the 1,000 innocent Brooklynites whose homes he hopes to seize. This deal is about one thing only: money.

    THE NETS BELONG IN THE GARDEN STATE. Ratner doesn't care about basketball, and won't care about the people of Brooklyn or the fans of the team.

    People live in Brooklyn because it's a place to see residential neighborhoods grow and thrive. Destroying neighborhoods to satisfy developers isn't Brooklyn. If it's what New York City and State is going to become, then we have the wrong elected officials

    Hey Ratner, hands off the Nets and eveything NJ. NY already has an NBA team, why rob NJ's?
  • 17 September 2015978. Laura B
    Not opposed to development, but this one is a frankenstein of ideas that have failed elsewhere-- blocking off existing streets, failing to take into account history and character of the surroundings. Ratner has already built two sunbstandard developments
