Celebs Get Ready to Rally While Nets Look to Extend Meadowlands Lease

Actors Rosie Perez and Heath Ledger are expected to lead a rally opposed to Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yard project in Brooklyn next week, as the approval process grinds on. The Nets arena is the centerpiece of the controversial proposal and Perez says she would like to keep her Brooklyn neighborhood her own private Mayberry. Meanwhile, the Nets have announced plans to upgrade CAA this off season and are discussing an extension of their lease with the NJSEA through 2011-12, which could include escape clauses if Brooklyn is ready before then.
