Pro hockey at the Atlantic Yards arena? It looks doubtful

In a long post on his Noticing New York blog, Michael D. D. White makes a strong case that the Ellerbe Becket arena design could not accommodate professional hockey and that any intimation in the bond offering that the Atlantic Yards arena could host the New York Islanders is a feint.

Note that White is working with an arena schematic from several months ago, so it's possible the design has been revised. But the onus is on developer Forest City Ratner and the public parties to come clean.
