Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Abraham Jacob "Abe" Hirschfeld, was a Polish-born New York real estate developer known for his eccentric endeavors, love for publicity, $2 neckties, strong Yiddish accent, and murder-for-hire plot against a former business partner. Hirschfeld was born in Tarn w, Poland and immigrated to the British Mandate of Palestine in the early 1930s. He said most of his extended family stayed and died in the Holocaust. In the 1950s, his family came to the U.S.A. He made a fortune building semi-enclosed "open-air" parking garages, and he subsequently funded a number of endeavors. Throughout his career he waged many failed campaigns for political office, including unsuccessful bids as "Honest Abe" for the U.S. Senate in 1974, for the New York City Council, for Manhattan Borough President in 1997, for Lieutenant Governor of New York, for New York State Comptroller in 1998, and for Mayor of Miami Beach, Floridashow more
