THE HEIGHT OF SPITE: Billionaire Real Estate Developer Posts Huge Photo of New Bride Near Times Square After Contentious Divorce

NEW YORK – A New York billionaire installed massive digital photos of himself and his new wife on the side of the city’s tallest residence, an apartment building he owns on Park Avenue where his ex-wife nearly moved to.

Harry Macklowe, an 82-year-old real estate developer formerly worth $2 billion, proclaimed the gesture as merely “love” for his new wife, Patricia Landeau.

Macklowe recently divorced his wife of 50 years, Linda, after a 14-week trial, during which the couple’s fortune was divided up including an incredible $700 million art collection, and 13 million-square-foot real estate portfolio. Linda Macklowe also wanted to be let out of a contract for a $14.4 million, 78th floor apartment in the same building.

Linda Macklowe will not longer live with two 42-foot-tall images of her ex and his new bride, but she may not avoid the newlywed imagery entirely as she was awarded their $72 million apartment in the Plaza, which is just four blocks away at 768 5th Avenue.

Harry Macklowe has not said when he will be removing the images from the building.
