ATLANTIC 'RALLY' YARDS

NY Post

The regular Post headline writers must be on vacation.

Atlantic Yards developer Bruce Ratner certainly knows how to throw a party. The man who wants to bring the New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn spared no expense yesterday in organizing a gala rally on the steps of Borough Hall to garner support for his $4 billion project, which includes an NBA arena, housing and office space.

More than 3,500 people turned out for the event.

Daniel Goldstein, spokesman for anti-Atlantic Yards group Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn, said the rally stunk of "desperation" and was likely done to get more subsidies.
