It sucks, but short of Bloomberg paying for the construction himself, I don't know what else you can do. They can put it on ice for five or ten years and wait for the recovery wave, but that would be killing this project for sure. Best to get going now, in whatever form possible. It's a little crappy looking, but I'm sure it has all of the modern amenities on the inside, and in a decade or so of the Nets playing there, fans will have no other way than what it is.
