Real estate developer, others, to become “living landmarks”
Real estate developer and film studio chief, George Kaufman, Tony-Award actor Tommy Tune and four other people will be named “living landmarks” Nov. 4, for their contributions to New York City. The New York Land Conservancy, which preserves and restores architecturally significant buildings throughout New York, will bestow the “Living Landmarks” awards. “The award honorees represent the best of New York in talent, philanthropy and spirit” said Peg Breen, president of the New York Landmarks Conservancy. The other recipients are New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham, philanthropist Baroness Mariuccia-Marimo, playwright, author, screenwriter and “Newman’s Own” co-creator, A.E. Hotchner, and New York County District Attorney Robert Morgenthau. Past recipients of the award have been Barbara Walters and Charlie Rose.

New program to train supers in going green
One thousand superintendents will be getting greener. Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Realty Advisory Board President Jim Berg and 32BJ president Mike Fishman have created a one-year training program for 1,000 superintendents to teach them about the latest energy efficient practices. The program, called One Thousand Green Supers, will consist of a 40-hour class that will train building service workers to identify and address wasted energy and create a green operating plan for the building by combining curriculum classes with field exercises. The class was created in response to New York City’s growing demand for greener buildings that use less energy than traditional building styles, according to a report from the Department of Energy. One Thousand Green Supers is a program under the umbrella of the Thomas Shortman Training Fund, which offers training to more than 80,000 32BJ union members working in the property services industry.
