The blood sport that is New York real estate is rife with billion-dollar feuds. There’s a story behind every eye-popping apartment sale and audacious new development in New York City, and many of those tales involve the uber-wealthy behaving badly.

Some of the most consequential stories of Manhattan’s evolution into a playground for the global one percent are now being told for the very first time in The Real Deal’s new book, “The New Kings of New York: Renegades, Moguls, Gamblers and the Remaking of the World’s Most Famous Skyline.”

Written by award-winning journalist and longtime TRD contributor Adam Piore, the book features insider accounts from the developers, politicians, investors and financiers who are most responsible for the way the city has shaped up in the new millennium — for better and for worse. It will hit bookshelves April 12, but can be pre-ordered now.

“The New Kings of New York” includes detailed accounts from Related’s Steve Ross, Extell’s Gary Barnett, former deputy mayor Dan Doctoroff and other bigwigs, speaking candidly about how they transformed the city. It also features the definitive account of the rise and fall of Kent Swig, as well as the extraordinary behind-the-scenes success story of Fortress Investment Group.

Veteran real estate reporter and author of “Other People’s Money,” Charles Bagli, said that the “The New Kings of New York” belongs “alongside ‘Skyscraper Dreams’ and ‘Working-Class New York’ on the shelves of serious students of the city.

Vicky Ward, author of “The Liar’s Ball,” said “it’s rare for a book about real estate to read like a thriller — but this does.”
