Goldstein Is Bought Out

Money wins. Daniel Goldstein, the founder of Develop Don’t Destroy, has agreed to settle with Forest City Ratner, the developer of Atlantic Yards, for $3 million. He lives a few blocks from my studio on Pacific Street and was the last man standing in the footprint who hadn’t been bought out. The $3M apparently buys Goldstein’s condo, bought for $590K in 2003, and his silence--Goldstein agrees to “not actively oppose the project,” which primarily means to abandon the only coalition actively opposed to the project, DDD. Read more about this sad news here. Good news: Freddy’s, the great bar (and Ratner hate HQ) around the corner from my home, closes on April 30th, but will reopen on 4th and Union.
