Any pictures/renderings of the bowl?

That site didn't seem to have any. Who cares what the luxury suites won't end up looking like?!

You're right, this thing was supposed to be completed -- as of five years ago.

Ratner will never get this thing built. The Nets should just move to Newark.

Mostly the credit crunch, Forrest City Ratner who was paying for the development couldn't get the finances in order for Gehry's $900 million arena plus the surrounding towers, so he was fired and they brought in Ellerbe Becket.

On all accounts that I've heard the seating bowl is basically the Conseco Fieldhouse with slight alterations, just the the fancy perforated CorTen wrapper that Shop Architects came up with.

If it's essentially the same seating bowl as Conseco then great. Conseco has the best seating bowl and design of any arena I've ever been in.

I liked Gehry's much better. Nothing wrong with conseco, but there are better ones out there. The Gehry design had overhang to the upper level, the suites were more discrete, the bowl elegantly balanced to the sidelines, and rehashing a design is just lazy.

The Conseco bowl is good for basketball, but it would be awful for hockey because of those diagonal corners. Legroom in the first row would be so varied.

Having now seen the bowl from Gehry's original design, I think it's awful. Way too many large gaps where things have to join nastily. Yes the top tier is flashy, but this isn't really much point to it.

As I understand it, this isnt including any facilities for hockey? Its a shame. The Islanders might actually get someone to watch them if they actually had an arena in NYC.

They're planning to upgrade Nassau and build a retail and entertainment district around it.

The latest...

This project looks to be very close to getting started. Read on:
http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/20...s-moves-ahead/

I'll say...you have to be a really big-time real estate mogul with gonads of steel (or a mega-bucks plan) to withstand a labyrinth of legal, political and economic challenges to start up a project in a big urban center in one of more litigious societies in the universe. Anyone else would have quit eons ago.

What a waste to build two arenas for the Nets and Isles when one would do.

Islanders are likely moving -- no way in hell the Lighthouse project gets done now.

Exactly, they should both be doing this Brooklyn arena. I'm sure some power struggle and projected revenue streams are getting in the way of common sense, though.

If Lebron truly wants to win a championship he will avoid New York all together.
