This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, offers analysis, commentary, and reportage about the $4.9B project to build the Barclays Center arena and 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn. Dubbed Atlantic Yards by developer Forest City Ratner in 2003, it was rebranded Pacific Park Brooklyn in 2014 after the Chinese government-owned Greenland Group bought a 70% stake going forward. As of 2018, after the arena and four towers were built, Greenland will own 95% of future construction.

Was the Izod Center 61% full last night?
The announced attendance (but not necessarily gate count) for last night's home game between the New Jersey Nets and Milwaukee Bucks was 12,205, or 61.1% of the 19,968 capacity.
I doubt that many people attended, and surely there were not that many people there by the early fourth quarter of a blowout loss, as the photo indicates.
