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.
Glenn is survived by his wife, two children, his parents, his brother, three nephews, and many in-laws.
Real Estate Weekly: If you wish to honor Glenn’s memory, contributions can be made to The New York Community Trust-Glenn Markman Memorial Fund, 909 Third Avenue, 22nd Fl, New York, NY. 10022.
The Markmans have been great supporters of BHB and all of us here extend our condolences to Glenn’s family and friends.
