Open Thread – Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn or What Would You Do with the Money?

By now, you’ve read the news about Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn’s Daniel Goldstein and the $3  million dollar settlement he reached yesterday with Forest City Ratner and New York State to move out of his home and the Atlantic Yards footprint.

Some say he fought the good fight and deserves every penny.   One commenter on the Brooklyn Paper website doesn’t see it that way. “Dr. J” says, “He really doesn’t care about the beautiful hole in the ground, after all. The last 7 years have been nothing but a drawn out game of poker. Take the money and run, Danny Boy.”

As for Goldstein he’s posted a manifesto on the DDDB website to state his side of the story:

I’ve not been silenced, and I am not leaving DDDB as it transitions into a new phase of fighting Atlantic Yards, exposing its corruption and false promises, and advocating for changing the State’s abusive eminent domain laws and the way development is done in New York. And should Atlantic Yards falter, and the land return to its contested state, DDDB will be prepared to jump in.

This whole thing gives us a headache.  Misuse of Eminent Domain by any state totally sucks and is wrong.  But basketball is awesome!

But enough of what we think, what’s your take on this?  Should Goldstein take the money and buy a nice home? Should he stick it to the man and use it to fight against the project? Or should he take the “I’m a mensch” route and give it all to charity?  Or something else?

Comment away!
