Eliot Spitzer kept out of the West Side Stadium fight last year, telling reporters he couldn’t talk about it because his office might wind up litigating.
But at a breakfast up in Washington Heights this morning, he broke his silence:
“I didn’t think it made a lot of financial sense to give a way a piece of real estate that’s worth a few billion dollars to a football team for a hundred million dollars,” he said. “That’s their fiscal determination thus far – maybe not down the road – but it didn’t make sense to me.”
After the event, Spitzer said he’d expressed his reservations privately to Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff and others.
