Markowitz defended the donations, saying that he has always been a proponent of this project and these contributions had no affect on his support.

"Make no mistake, I advocated for this project with no strings attached, no promise of any reciprocal support whatsoever," he said in a statement. "And I continue to do so adamantly because it will be a major catalyst for continuing what we call the 'Brooklyn Renaissance.'"
