Eric Goldstein

Eric A. Goldstein, adjunct professor of law and a senior attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), has been active on a wide range of urban environmental matters. He was co-counsel in a public and private nuisance case representing a South Bronx community group and local residents against a city-owned sewage plant and privately operated sludge-processing facility; the parties reached a successful resolution and Goldstein has been assisting the clients in establishing an urban waterfront park as part of the city-funded settlement.  Goldstein has also been representing the environmental community in negotiations with the Bloomberg Administration and the New York City Council to advance administrative and legislative proposals to expand recycling and composting programs in the nation’s largest city. He is also serving on to the New York State High-Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Advisory Panel, on which he has been advising the Cuomo Administration regarding controversial proposals for industrial gas drilling.

He writes regularly at the NRDC’s Switchboard blog at
