When was the last time you paid property tax Elliot? You dick.
Bernard Spitzer, an 82-year-old engineer who changed the New York skyline without the flash of a Donald Trump, owns or holds a stake in at least 10 properties on or near the East Side, most of which he developed.
"They are all magnificent buildings," he told the Daily News. "Five of them are on Central Park."
Three of them have made or saved millions of dollars for his 47-year-old son, the attorney general - through gifts, asset sales and rental income - during his eight years in public office, a News examination found.
In one of those buildings, the politician doubles as a landlord: He's a partner in a family firm that controls six Madison Ave. shops - and he gets rent from the likes of Georg Jensen, the Danish jeweler, and Anne Fontaine, the Parisian designer.
While his state salary paid him $151,150 last year, sky-high retail rents earned him $949,581.
Spitzer has lived rent-free with his family at 985 Fifth Ave. for 13 years. The 25-story tower off 79th St. has just two apartments per floor and terraces that look down at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Nice. Typical dem. Do as I say not as I do.
