MTA to approve Atlantic Yards plans

The MTA is set to approve plans for the Atlantic Yards Wednesday. Bruce  Ratner, who said he would build a scaled-back, cheaper arena without architect Frank Gehry, is still having trouble financing the project amid the real estate crisis. Ratner recently announced that Gehry will not be designing the project, though his master plan will remain in place. Critics of Ratner say the MTA should not do him any favors by accepting an altered version of his development plans.
