More on David:
Framed head shots of some famous faces ring David Lichtenstein’s office—including the mugs of Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos. Those two and Lichtenstein have something in common: They rose from modest beginnings to amass ten-digit fortunes. “I’m just a normal guy,” insists the bespectacled Lichtenstein, 55, in his thick Brooklyn accent.
He’s professing his normalcy from his sky-high Park Avenue digs, a reminder of how far he has come. His real estate developer, Lightstone—a play on his German surname—owns 11,000 apartments, 3,200 hotel rooms and 6 million square feet of commercial property across 22 states. He controls the entire firm, good for an estimated $1.4 billion fortune.
