Glenn Markman, Real Estate Broker, Heights Cafe and Dellarocco’s Partner, Dies at 52

Glenn Markman of Dellarocco’s and the Heights Cafe has died at 52. Markman was a successful real estate broker and spent the last 12 years at Cushman and Wakefield. His numerous accomplishments in the field included coming up with the idea for an NBA store and working with the league on opening its Fifth Avenue store.

In Brooklyn, he was known for supporting tech start ups and most recently created BKLYN1834 which “helps artists engage their audiences and expand their digital reach.”

Two years ago, our Karl Junkersfeld interviewed Glenn on some of his favorite topics, including restaurants, the Nets, and Brooklyn’s future.

    Glen was a super man. His contributions to Brooklyn are too numerous to list. I am very sad and will miss our conversations on the subway while making our way to a Nets game at Barclays Center. An update regarding services would be much appreciated.
