Actor and anti-capitalist Howard Zinn fan Matt Damon shut down a whole city block in Brooklyn Heights on Tuesday to move into his $16.5 million, 6,000-plus-square-foot luxury penthouse, according to Breitbart.
“We call the building the Standoffish because it is a little bit of Hollywood dumped in the middle of the more low-key Brooklyn Heights,” said a resident. “The lobby is all gold and marble, and the units have Austrian white oak flooring and Italian marble slab countertops.”
Damon “has a triplex penthouse on the 11th and 12th floors and the roof,” the resident continued. “It is the highest building in the neighborhood, so it has unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, and the bridges.” He added that Damon “closed off the street all day and parked an enormous big red crane right in the middle of the street.”
Hypocrite Damon is a big promoter of radical Howard Zinn’s notoriously America-hating People’s History of the United States, which is ubiquitous in high schools and colleges nationwide.
