BROOKLYN, NY— Friday, September 21st, prior to the Barclays Center ribbon cutting and press tour, Brooklyn community organization will gather with some very special guests—giant bobbleheaded Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Cuomo, Borough President Markowitz, Bruce Ratner, Mikhail Prokhorov, and Sen. Schumer—for an alternate ribbon cutting ceremony and press conference.

At the ribbon cutting the dignitaries will highlight the troubled history of the Barclays Center and Atlantic Yards project and ongoing unfulfilled promises, among them affordable housing and local jobs.

Before Barclays Center developer Bruce Ratner and political dignitaries show off the facade and interior luxury suites of the taxpayer money-losing (according the NYC Independent Budget Office) arena, the alternative ribbon cutters will explain how the arena is not affordable housing and the promised jobs are phantoms.

After $300 million of taxpayer dollars, and nearly $1.6 billion in special breaks, government favors and below market public land sales, and two and one half years after the arena groundbreaking, not a single one of the promised 2,250 taxpayer subsidized, "affordable" housing units is under construction, and of the 10,000 "permanent" jobs promised, the developer has announced only 105 full time jobs and 1,900 non-living wage jobs. There is no groundbreaking scheduled for the first of 15 planned residential towers, and the office tower that was to provide space for those 10,000 jobs is unlikely to be constructed in this generation, if ever.

Please join us for a very photogenic, bobbleheaded, informative and rousing alternate ribbon-cutting ceremony and press conference.
