Samuel “Sandy” Lindenbaum, a counsel at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel and one of the city’s biggest land-use attorneys, died this afternoon in his East Hampton home, the law firm said. He was 77 years old.
Lindenbaum worked on many high-profile deals in the city, most recently helping win approval for the Hines Interests-developed MoMA mixed-use building on West 53rd Street, Columbia University’s Manhattanville campus expansion and the Weill Cornell College Medical building. Throughout his career, he has worked with developers such as William Macklowe, Harry Helmsley, Donald Trump, Steven Roth, and Larry Silverstein. [more]
