What's it like to cling to your apartment walls as all of your neighbors scurry to make way for a shiny new stadium and housing development? Lonely, says Dan Goldstein, vociferous opponent of the pending changes in his 'hood, last tenant in his Pacific St. building, and sex symbol. As the wrecking (basket)ball inches closer, it's still unclear what will happen to Goldstein and the other remaining holdouts in Prospect Heights. But, according to an informal poll by Newsday, this much is clear: this part of Pacific St. will not be a Bloomberg stronghold come November. Holy shit! Somebody call Bob Kerrey!
