The first time I met ************** was in the late
1990s at a dinner party in his Manhattan town house. It
was a typical New York gathering of the moneyed and the prominent, thrown together for an evening of polite conversation that goes in one ear and out the other.
I recall that Dan Rather was there, and Peter Jennings, and that the five-story home was an overdone tribute to marble, formal British furniture and attention-grabbing works of art.
********* himself barely made an impression. He sat at the head of the table and said little, looking bored. Later, as rumors grew that he wanted to run for mayor, I was astonished—and I was not the only one. That guy, the dull, quiet one whose home looks like a museum?
I’d seen mayors come and go and ********* did not fit the mold any which way. The slight, self-made billionaire was the opposite of the boisterous characters New Yorkers enjoy. He had created an improbably successful company, a financial information giant that grew from a sophisticated computer terminal he developed. Few beyond Wall Street and the City of London understood much about that or knew that ********* was a generous philanthropist, but the elaborate ad campaign he could bankroll would fill in the blanks. Recognition wasn’t the problem. The problem was, it sure seemed, **************.
He didn’t have the experience or the temperament, he
didn’t know much about the city, and the city knew less about him. Success in business was supposed to make him a good mayor?
He was “trying to buy City Hall like it’s a cup of coffee,”
growled Jimmy Breslin. He was spending “tens of millions of dollars of his own money to lip-sync the lyrics of politics,” wrote Bob Herbert. By my reckoning, he was a rich guy on an ego trip, who should not have gotten anywhere near City Hall, no matter how many millions of his own dollars he spent in pursuit of victory.
After he won in a fluke, many New Yorkers remained skeptical, figuring he would be a caretaker mayor, serving one fouryear term and moving on out. New York is hard enough for a seasoned politician to run, let alone a billionaire stiff. ************ was nothing like one of those naturally expansive rich men like Nelson Rockefeller or the open, good-humored Warren
He couldn’t make a speech, couldn’t—or wouldn’t—answer a question persuasively and projected a solemnity that approached sourness. A small, graying man with a few too many slightly bucked teeth that discouraged broad smiles, he looked like the businessman he was in his uniforms of expensive dark
suits and loafers.
