    Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, and The Real Deal will be there to cover the historic event.

    It’s a big moment for New York City real estate: a real estate mogul is moving into the Oval Office, and a number of developers are expected to wield considerable influence nationally. We’ll be chatting with some of Trump’s friends in the industry who are in town for the 58th presidential inauguration and covering the events of the next few days.

    Things only got worse during the demolition process, when exterior sculptures that had been promised to the Metropolitan Museum of Art were destroyed. [more]
