Silver – one of the three men in a room.

Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn has collected 3,600 form letters, online and on the street, urging the Public Authorities Control Board to postpone its vote on Atlantic Yards until after “the courts” rule on its eminent domain lawsuit — which, frankly, could take a few years, especially if the case goes all the way to the Supreme Court.

Most of them, spokesman Daniel Goldstein said, were collected in Brooklyn, but there are 400 signers from state Assembly Speaker Shelly Silver’s Lower Manhattan district among them. Silver, Gov. Pataki, and state Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno control the votes on the authorities control board.

The letters will be delivered Tuesday.
