Forbes Magazine’s annual billionaire list is out, and Richard LeFrak and the Blackstone Group’s Stephen Schwarzman tied for the top spot occupied by a real estate baron: #63, the New York Observer reported. Both men show a net worth of $5.2 billion, according to Forbes.
Other real estate pros on the list include Related’s Steven Ross, at $4.4 billion, Hartz Mountain Industries’ Leonard Stern, at $4.2 billion, and attorney Sheldon Solow, at $3.5 billion.
Donald Trump was #128 with a reported $3.1 billion — a figure that has been disputed. John Catsimatidis, who may be picking up the Food Emporium chain soon, which could diminish his fortune of $3 billion, was #132 on the list, tied with Tishman Speyer’s Jerry Speyer.
