Actors, Singer Lead Brooklyn Protest

Actors Steve Buscemi and Rosie Perez along with tot rocker Dan Zanes led a smaller than expected protest of Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project. About 2,000 showed up, a fifth of what some had projected, to demand an end to the Net owner's plan which calls for 16 skyscrapers centered around a new arena for the team. Debate is expected to begin soon on an environmental impact statement, the critical component in the city and state approval process.
