Larry’s Man Lloyd

The Journal this morning details Larry Silverstein’s moneyman at the World Trade Center site–the low-key but fabulously wealthy Lloyd Goldman. Mr. Goldman’s uncle Sol by the mid-1970s was the biggest private landlord in the city, and the family fortune survives today in nationwide investments.

Mr. Goldman got in on the World Trade Center in early 2001, backing Mr. Silverstein’s takeover of the towers shortly before September 11, and now, of course, holds a major hand in the redevelopment. Mr. Goldman, in fact, will likely some day take control of whatever Mr. Silverstein ultimately builds on the site (rather than, say, Mr. Silverstein’s two daughters).
