The article comments on the article "BlackRock Brings Calpers and Calstrs to Stuytown," published in the November 20 issue of the journal that presented information about the deal to purchase New York City's Stuyvesant Town. It is viewed that the report had some flaws. One of the flaws was that the original version said Merrill Lynch & Co. Inc. bought BlackRock Inc., while the truth is that Merrill made a minority investment in BlackRock.
