From the April Issue: New York City has more billionaires than any other city on the planet.
Last month, Forbes reported that 79 billionaires call the Big Apple home, besting Hong Kong, which has 68 members of the 10-digit-net-worth club, followed by Moscow with 60, Beijing with 51 and London with 48.
New York’s billionaires are worth a combined $364.6 billion, according to the magazine.
While many of NYC’s billionaires made their fortunes in finance and media, 11 of them built — or inherited — real estate empires, including Stephen Ross, Richard LeFrak, Donald Trump, Jerry Speyer, Leonard Stern, Sheldon Solow, John Catsimatidis, Jeff Sutton, Mortimer Zuckerman, David Walentas, Alexander Rovt and Leon Charney (who died last month). While their commercial holdings are well documented, their personal residences are less so. [more]
