Creation Date

Summer 2015


During my childhood and teenage years Father was involved in a number of major projects in and around New York City… Many of Father’s initiatives – the Palisades Interstate Park, the Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park, and Riverside Church – have become part of the City’s incredible physical landscape. Ironically, however, Father will be most remembered for a project he never intended to undertake and that inadvertently led him to become a major real estate developer.
