Daniel Goldstein and his family are the only residents left still fighting eviction from the footprint of Bruce Ratner’s Atlantic Yards development, for which the state won a hard-fought battle over its right to exercise eminent domain. Goldstein, who has been one of the project’s most outspoken opponents, lives in a Pacific Street condo with his wife and one-year-old daughter. While the seven other remaining families living on the soon-to-be construction site signed an agreement — complete with an $85,000 average cash payment — with Ratner yesterday to leave by May 7, Goldstein didn’t cave. State officials are expected to file a motion in court today to boot Goldstein, a storage company and an office building from the site by May 17, but Goldstein said he plans to challenge it because he has not yet had enough time to find a new home. Officials say putting off the evictions would cost Ratner $6.7 million per month. [NYDN]
