BATTLE FOR BROOKLYN
Battle for Brooklyn follows the activists who fought to save people’s homes and property rights during the development of a professional basketball arena in Brooklyn. Widely known as the Atlantic Yards project, the undertaking was a major source of contention as local residents resisted a developer's attempt to use eminent domain to seize their homes and businesses.
