Housing Promise Brings 2,000 to Ratner Rally

With critics of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project planning a celebrity-laden rally this weekend, the Nets' owner asked for a show of interest in his Atlantic Yards project. He wound up with 2,300 people. The crowd came to a Brooklyn meeting in hopes of learning more about the promise of affordable housing in the skyscrapers surrounding a new Nets' arena. The final approval process for the project is expected to begin in a few weeks.
