A billionaire who was divorced from his wife after almost 60 years of marriage recently got remarried.
The 81-year-old had a different way of taunting his former wife.
Real estate developer Harry Macklowe placed gigantic photos 24 feet wide and 42 feet high of himself and his new wife for people to see on his residential building in New York City.
He said in an interview: “I thought: ‘I own a building. Why don’t I just hang a banner from my own building?’”
Macklowe, who built 432 Park Avenue, one of the tallest residential buildings, called the photos “a proclamation of love.” He just tied the knot with his second wife, Patricia Landeau.
Speaking about the photos, he said: “My wife looks gorgeous, and I love the picture of me.” He also added: “Since I wasn’t getting married during the summer in the Hamptons, I wasn’t able to hire an airplane with a banner to go up and down the shoreline. I thought: ‘I own a building. Why don’t I just hang a banner from my own building?’”
Made of polyester mesh, the photos hang from a glass part of the 432 Park Avenue building called the Park Avenue Cube.
According to News.com, his marriage with former wife Linda broke up in 2016. “A furious Mrs Macklowe made the decision in 2016 after it was revealed her husband, property mogul Harry Macklowe, had installed his younger French mistress Patricia Landeau in one of his luxury properties for years on end.”
The New York Post reported before Landeu and Macklowe’s marriage: “The wedding on Thursday morning will be officiated by presiding New York Supreme Court Justice Alan Scheinkman. For the reception, the entire 78th floor of Macklowe’s Park Avenue tower has been gutted to be transformed into a ‘massive ballroom’ by events guru David Monn, we’re told.
“Monn’s creating a white-themed bash, complete with all white chandeliers, candles and flowers.”
Macklowe shared his male friends told him their partners wanted similar treatment. “I got an email from a neighbor across the street who said, ‘I want my husband to do this for me for Valentine’s Day.’”
