Re: Reopening old underpasses - Atlantic Av IRT

A direct subway connection to the Ratner development will encourage the use of the subway. That's just common sense. Look at Rockefeller Center for another good example of a direct connection to office buildings. I still think that most Nets fans will drive there causing huge traffic back-ups. I don't seen Nets fans from Bay Ridge or Sheepshead Bay taking the subway there with their kids in tow.

The triangular intersection of Flatbush Ave, Atlantic Ave & 4th Avenue has been a disaster for 40 years. The arena will make it worse. I thought most of the office space was dropped from the project because Ratner realized he coudn't compete with Jersey City and Hoboken on rents.
