"Why should people get to see plans? This isn't a public project."
Bruce Ratner in Crain's Nov. 8, 2009

Thank You For Making Walkathon 4 a Great Success!

Walk Don't Destroy 4, Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn's 4th Annual Walkathon fundraiser for the legal fight against Bruce Ratner's Atlantic Yards project took place last night and it was a great success. Thank you to all of those who walked and raised funds, and thank you to their sponsors. Thank you to all the musicians who showed up to put the walk to music, and a big thank you to all the volunteers who helped organize the event.

Your participation helped raise $45,000 for the ongoing legal fight against Atlantic Yards! Thank you!

Thank you to the police officers who helped the raucous night time, candlelight walk through busy streets, sidewalks and intersection run smootly without a hitch.

Also, a VERY BIG THANK YOU to The Atomic Grind Show for their fantastic performance at the after party.
And a big Brooklyn THANK YOU to DJ Delphine Blue for spinning her box of tunes at the after party.
