The biggest names in New York real estate converged on the Hilton in Midtown Thursday evening for the Real Estate Board of New York’s 124th annual gala.

The so-called “Liar’s Ball” — where tickets go for $1,400-a-pop — drew the likes of Extell Development’s Gary Barnett, Silverstein Properties’ Larry Silverstein, Cushman & Wakefield’s Bruce Mosler, CBRE’s Mary Anne Tighe, John Catsimitidis and others.

Board members and honorees on stage donned white scarves, an accessory favored by Jay Kriegel, the late Related executive who died in December. Kriegel posthumously received REBNY’s John E. Zuccotti Public Service Award. Other honorees included the late Héctor Figueroa, president of the Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union, as well as Vornado Realty Trust’s David Greenbaum and JRT Realty Group’s Jodi Pulice.
