Howard Milstein just bought Golf and Golf.com from publisher Meredith for an estimated $15 million, and now he’s moving their offices into one of his office towers.
Milstein is moving the magazine’s offices to the same building that houses the Emigrant Savings Bank in Midtown, the New York Post reported. Milstein is chairman of the bank, the oldest savings entity in the city, and Milstein Properties owns the building its headquartered in at 5 East 42nd Street/6 East 43rd Street.
“If you hang out at the front door of Emigrant Bank in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, you will occasionally see Jack Nicklaus coming or going,” Golf Senior Editor Michael Bamberger wrote in a blog post. “Or you’ll see a FedEx Delivery person hauling in a long rectangular box with Miura golf clubs in them. Or you’ll see a dapper gent of a certain age (66) with the Wall Street Journal on his tablet and the Robb Report and newest issue of Golf Magazine in his attaché case. That man is Howard Milstein.” [NYP] — Rich Bockmann
