Race Card Pulled in Dumbo

New, 1 comment

Like seeing a developer's dirty laundry aired in public? Then you'll love this Brooklyn Paper story on Two Trees's controversial Dock Street Dumbo condo project. Specifically, the 2009 e-mail from Jed Walentas, prince of Dumbo, in which he wrote, "The opposition is clearly panicked and turned out 75 or so folks. [Fort Greene Councilwoman] Tish [James] and Marty [Markowitz] agreed to not turn out dozens from the projects and make it a total racial mess." We never knew those sweaters were hiding such a hardball player! [Brooklyn Paper]
