Construction Workers Outnumber Protestors at "Time Out" Rally

New, comments

By their own count, only about 300 protestors showed up at Saturday's "Time Out" rally at the site of the Nets' new arena in Brooklyn...while nearby between 400 and 500 construction workers staged a counter rally in favor of the arena. Police kept the two apart. The rally, billed as the biggest yet, called for New York Gov. David Paterson to call a temporary halt to demolition and prep work around the arena site.
