Goldstein is well known to New Yorkers for his infamous late-night, public access show “Midnight Blue.” The show featured Goldstein engaging in rants against various enemies, real or perceived, giving them his vigorous, one-fingered salute in his own inimitable way. He targeted everything from politicians to restaurants.
