Anti-Atlantic Yards Rally: Thousands Brave Blazing Sun

Exactly how many people showed at yesterday's Grand Army Plaza "Rally Against Ratner" depends on who is doing the counting. The 2,000-4,000 people who braved the heat heard about the residential-commercial-arena Atlantic Yards project from actor Steve Buscemi, actress Rosie Perez, Ratner "Poster Girl" turned anti-Yards activist T. Sarah Meer, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn's Daniel Goldstein, Council Members Charles Barron, Letitia James and Tony Avella, and a host of others. More Curbed photos after the jump.
