It's about time. Now can we just move on and get it built?
There are real union jobs that will pay like Madison Sq. Garden does.
The money will start to flow down Flatbush and help all those neighborhoods.
And just a question, how much money has DDDB wasted on these frivolous, loosing lawsuits? Where did they get the money? DDDB is only taking suckers money and putting in their lawyers pockets.
That's the RIP-OFF!!
