SKYSCRAPER DREAMS The Great Real Estate Dynasties of New York . Maybe the greatest landlord in New York history was Albert (Papa) Strunsky, who leased a square block of tenements just below Washington Square Park after World War I. Strunsky rented his apartments to anyone who needed them, regardless of ability to pay.
