Switching Contracts

Compare the original DDA
(redevelopment contract governing Moskowitz' casino) with the revised version!

The Coalition for Justice in Hawaiian Gardens and Jerusalem has obtained the original version of the redevelopment agreement, called a DDA, that governs Irving Moskowitz' Hawaiian Gardens casino. As you can read in The Story of Moskowitz & Hawaiian Gardens, a substitute, Moskowitz-friendly, DDA was substituted for the original in the moments before it was adopted.

On this page, using the widely available Adobe Acrobat Reader , you'll see both the original and the substitute DDA's, as well as a three-color comparison of the two documents. You can get a preview of the comparison and see some of the most telling differences between the two contracts by viewing the two links immediately below.
