Arena Foes Poll-Axed

AS the NY Post reports this morning Crain's New York has conducted a poll of city residents that shows over 60% of New Yorkers support the Atlantic Yards project in Brooklyn. While opposition was strongest in Brooklyn, only 33% of that borough's citizens say they are against the arena development.

All of which shows that support for the project is strong especially as you move outward from the development's footprint. In spite of all the publicity generated and policy expertise demonstrated by the DDD folks the group doesn't have the kind of traction needed to stop the project.
