Atlantic Yards property owner Henry Weinstein, who lost his six-story Pacific Street office building last month to eminent domain, has evicted his tenant, developer Shaya Boymelgreen, for allegedly selling his lease to Bruce Ratner and failing to pay rent. Weinstein arrived at the building yesterday morning with sheriff’s deputies and had a locksmith use a crowbar to break open the door. Some 20 Boymelgreen employees and subtenants filed out before Weinstein padlocked the doors. State officials said that while they did not plan to intervene, Weinstein technically had no right to evict tenants, as the state took title to the building March 1. [NYDN]
