This week, we learn that the circus will come to the Barclays Center.
It's easy for a newspaper to cover such press releases, and while the information may be worth sharing, is it more important than:
- the new seven-year potential delay in Phase 1 of the project?
- Brooklyn Borough president Marty Markowitz's astonishing words in China?
Both of the latter stories are connected to Forest City Ratner's attempt (my series) to raise a $249 million no-interest loan from Chinese investors seeking green cards under the federal government's EB-5 visa program, thus saving the developer perhaps $191 million.
