Marc Dreier Gets His Due


Marc Dreier was robbed by Bernie Madoff. Not of money, but of attention. The flamboyant Park Avenue lawyer’s arrest took place just days before Madoff’s confession. Had it happened at any other time, his multi-billion-dollar fraud might have gone down as the largest and ballsiest in New York history. The details of his lifestyle — his pricey art collection, lavish homes, yachts, his penchant for hobnobbing with celebrities, all of which were so much more colorful than Madoff’s, with his 6 p.m. dinners — would have been splashed across the tabloids. And you know, we’ve felt robbed, in a way, not knowing the whole story. But happily, New York’s Bob Kolker gives this man his due in next week’s magazine, online now. Enjoy!
