Marty’s Own Medicine

June 27, 2011

The Brooklyn Paper reports that Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz has reached a settlement with plaintiffs in a lawsuit over the noise generated by his concert series at Asser Levy Park.  Does anyone else see the irony in Marty’s comments?

“Their selfish actions could eliminate concerts from Coney Island forever,” Markowitz said in a written statement.

Markowitz has found a new site for his shows. Last month, he begrudgingly agreed to move the concerts out of Asser Levy and into a W. 21st Street lot about a mile away — a deal that foreshadowed the future settlement.

“All of this hard work was necessary because [of] a spiteful minority,” Markowitz said.

    Damn, who says he doesn’t have a sense of humor.

    I wouldn’t be able to say “spiteful minority” with a straight face.
