Inside the Barclays Center

A monthly photo essay documenting the construction of the Atlantic Yards development and the Barclays Center, which the Brooklyn-bound New Jersey Nets will soon call home.

The Barclays Center is now looming impressively over intersection of Flatbush and Atlantic avenues, the shape of the basketball arena that the Brooklyn-bound New Jersey Nets plan to call home in the 2012-2013 season clearly visible.

About 70 percent of the foundation has been laid, and 30 percent of the steel is in place. Next week, the stadium seating will arrive from Detroit and Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner expects to begin work on the façade as early as June.

Every month, we'll take a look at the progress the work crews are making. As the Barclays Center and the rest of the development rise along neighborhood’s border, we'll take note as each beam is raised each wall is erected and each building demolished.

I still think this construction project could not have been done if it wasn't for the purchase of local religious and community "leaders". To that end I now call on all local religious leaders to expose their bank accounts and release their tax returns. We the people have long needed a through airing of the amount and source of all funds that the religious folks are holding. they amass large cash collections and are answerable seemingly to no one. Open your books.
