LK: Right timing.
ZF: I spent the next three years working out those deals that we thought we was so smart about and I made a decision in 1990 that I could have become either bankruptcy lawyer because all my clients were bankrupt. Instead we decided to form a company called Property Markets Group because of a guy named Kevin Bologna, who is also an active developer today.
LK: It may be somebody else in there as well.
ZF: Well, Gary Barnett joined. He was in the diamond business in Belgium and was making his first look for a way into New York and we partnered up sometime in the early 90s. So all the stuff, we did together in New York for period of time.
