Quote Of The Day: ‘Heights Residents Who Balked About Traffic Are Running Out To Buy’ Barclays Tickets

September 27, 2012

In a story about art installations that will decorate Brooklyn’s new Barclays Center—including a 20×110-foot mural by Brooklyn-based artist Mickalene Thomas and a 70-foot mural from Cuban-American artist Jose Parla created at his studio two blocks from the arena— contributor Lynn Douglass offers a curious quote about nearby Brooklyn Heights…

She writes: “Can this local-inspired art help bridge the divide with those who spent years trying to block the sports arena from the heart of Brooklyn?

In an interesting turn, some of the same Brooklyn Heights residents who balked about traffic patterns before the Center was built are running out to buy tickets.”

Huh? Douglass offers no statistics to verify Heights’ residents alleged enthusiastic support of tix sales… Things that make you go Hmmm.
