DDDB walkathon raises more than $100,000
Atlantic Yards Report
The Walk Don't Destroy 2 walkathon fundraiser for Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn (DDDB) yesterday raised more than $100,000 toward legal battles over the Atlantic Yards plan. The event at Prospect Park generated nearly double the amount raised at the first walkathon last November. Organizers said that some 1100 people contributed, with more than 300 participants.
That money should (presumably) help build a legal fund sufficient to get fights against eminent domain and perhaps other issues off the ground.
