ABSTRACT
The article discusses the eminent domain issues that have emerged from the proposal by real estate developer Bruce C. Ratner to construct a basketball arena along with a commercial and residential complex in Brooklyn's Atlantic Yards. The eminent domain issues have risen because the proposal requires the condemnation of private property to be used by a private property. An overview of eminent domain law in New York is presented.
