Sol Goldman, a grocer's son who assembled an empire of properties worth hundreds of millions of dollars, mostly in New York City, has died at 70. Goldman died Sunday at Lenox Hill Hospital two months after undergoing hip surgery. Goldman did not buy his first piece of Manhattan real estate until 1955. But he and his partner, Alex DiLorenzo, soon became legendary if little known to the general public. By 1960, they had purchased the Chrysler Building on speculation and made it their flagship.

MOMA to Grow: New York's Museum of Modern Art has bought the neighboring Dorset Hotel and two brownstones in a $50-million transaction that will nearly double the museum's size, a museum spokesperson said Monday. The property was purchased from the estate of developer Sol Goldman after three years of negotiations. The purchase price is being raised by a small group of trustees who wish to remain anonymous, museum director Glenn D. Lowry said.

Lillian Goldman, 80, an advocate for women's education who donated more than $20 million to Yale Law School, died Tuesday of pancreatic cancer at her home in East Hampton, N.Y. Goldman donated to Yale's law school in part because it was one of the first in the country to accept women. Her gift was used for the expansion and reconstruction of the school's library, which was renamed the Lillian Goldman Law Library.

The twist in "The Evidence," a crime drama premiering tonight at 10 on ABC, is that viewers get all the physical evidence of a crime before the inspectors do, then watch as the hyper-stylized, hyper-foreshadowed close-ups of the puzzle pieces fit into place. It isn't a bad gimmick, establishing a certain tension, but the premise is about the only thing that recommends "The Evidence," a show that otherwise seems to be moving you -- rather than moving -- through its procedural paces.
