Let There Be Hope: A New Beginning in Brooklyn

photo by Bruce Bennett via cdn2.sbnation.com Hope grows in Brooklyn for the once, and perhaps future, model franchise of the NHL. As I've mentioned so many times and in so many places, the...

Brooklyn Reflections: Dynasty Warriors

The Islanders were the NHL's last true dynasty. Now, with the team moving to Brooklyn in 2015, its crystal clear that Nassau County itself did more damage to the dynasty than any other team ever could.

Brooklyn Reflections: A new hope?

Getting arena resolution is a reward for all of the New York Islanders fans who suffered through uncertainty and the leanest of lean years.

Latest Nassau Coliseum Proposal: Same Ol', Same Ol' for Islanders

Nassau County is set to issue an RFQ for developers who would build a new Nassau Coliseum, develop the land around it, and charge rent from the New York Islanders.

LHH ZEITGEIST OP-ED: SOMEBODY REALLY NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING by Kate Murray

A satirical take on Town of Hempstead supervisor Kate Murray's inaction on the Nassau Coliseum site.

Lighthouse Project calm before the storm

I linked these in the game recap, but if you missed them, here are three interesting and complementary takes on the likely next development in the Lighthouse Project saga (after Charles Wang's pre-emptive mini-strike on air last night): Hockey Independent, plus Islanders Point Blank, and Let There be Light(house).

Know this: over the last two weeks, the lead agency (the Town of Hempstead) and the developers (Wang and Scott Rechler) have received green lights from the New York State Department of Transportation, the Nassau County Department of Public Works and the Department of Environmental Conservation. And yet, the Town of Hempstead wants to sit on the Lighthouse Project like George Costanza of "Seinfeld" taking his time with the Penske File.

Town of Hempstead: Lighthouse review not ready (shock!)

"You spin me right round, baby right round, like a record, baby round round." They hire consultants: The Town of Hempstead's environmental consultants say, naturally, that the Lighthouse Project's meticulously prepared 6,500-page environmental impact statement is incomplete: "Virtually every area needs work." As I understand it, this could delay the beginning of public hearings -- which frankly seems the intent of one side of this twisted political dance. But check Nick's Lighhouse blog for what I expect will be a more elaborate and informed reaction.
