Harvey Schultz, a prominent Prospect Heights resident and longtime city official, died on Sept. 6. He was 66.

Schultz’s public-service career spanned three mayoral administrations, starting in the Department of City Planning under Mayor Lindsay. He capped his city service as Department of Environmental Protection commissioner under Mayor Koch.

Schultz also worked as Borough President Howard Golden’s executive assistant.

At his death, Schultz was a member of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership and senior vice president of Muss Development, the firm that developed the Brooklyn Marriott and Brighton by the Sea.

“Harvey spent a lifetime making Downtown Brooklyn, and the city as a whole, a better place,” said Joe Chan, president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership.

He is survived by his wife, Nanette Rainone; three sons, Jason, Matthew and Daniel; a sister, Sharon Price; and two grandsons.
