David Bistricer is the founder and principal of Clipper Equity and a residential landlord with thousands of units throughout the city. He was born in Belgium in 1949 to an Orthodox Jewish family of Holocaust survivors. Two years later, the Bistricers arrived in America, where they eventually founded Clipper Equity. The family firm focused on converting rental buildings into cooperatives, but the projects did not always go smoothly. From 1998 to 2009, New York State banned Clipper Equity from selling co-ops and condominiums after it failed to disclose information to buyers of the units. In 2006, the firm bought Vanderveer Estates in East Flatbush for $138.2 million, despite the presence of over 10,000 housing violation codes. The complex, renamed Flatbush Gardens, landed Bistricer on then-Public Advocate Bill de Blasio'’s list of “worst landlords in 2010”. Recently, Bistricer has tended to acquire real estate in partnership with other firms. In 2013, he and Joseph Chetrit purchased the Sony Tower for $1.1 billion, hoping to turn the building into condominiums, before selling it to Olayan America for $1.4 billion in 2016.

Clipper and the Chetrit Group, which is also a family-run developer and landlord, have also acquired the Flatotel and other buildings and plan to convert them to more lucrative uses. Bistricer and his wife, Esther, have five children. They live in Borough Park, Brooklyn. David’s son Jacob, who goes by J.J., has worked for the family firm for the past decade and is now chief operating officer, according to LinkedIn.
