Around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, a 45-year-old man was approached by four people in the area of East 73rd Street and York Avenue. The quartet flashed a gun and robbed the man of his cellphone before running off.

Then, roughly 40 minutes later, the group struck just over 11 blocks away, approximately one mile, in the area of East 65th Street and Lexington Avenue, police said.

It was not immediately clear if police are still looking for a fourth person.


Many of the areas hit during Saturday night’s spree are only a stone’s throw from where the ultra-wealthy are said to live.

According to The Real Deal.com, billionaires John Paulson and Glenn Dubin live just blocks, if not a block, from the East 84th Street robbery.

Paulson, worth an estimated $4.2 billion, according to Forbes, founded hedge fund company Paulson & Co in the mid-90s. He is known for making his fortune betting against subprime mortgages as the American economy headed toward collapse in 2007.

Dubin, 63, co-founded Highbridge Capital Management in 1992 before selling to JP Morgan Chase 12 years later, according to Forbes, which reported that the hedge funder boasts an estimated net worth of $2 billion.

According to The Real Deal, Dubin coughed up $32 million in 2006 to buy a Fifth Avenue apartment previously owned by fellow billionaire David Koch.

The gunpoint robbery near East 65th Street and Lexington Avenue is a mere block away from the home of billionaire financier Henry Kravis, according to TRD. Forbes has estimated Kravis' worth at $6.5 billion.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has pretty much every feature leaked in new AT&T video

  Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra has pretty much every feature leaked in new AT&T video What don’t we know about the Note 20 at this point?The video, which popped up on Twitter courtesy of South American tech blogger Karlos Peru, appears to have been prepped as a piece of marketing material to promote the new phone and its larger Ultra variant. It doesn’t tell us anything groundbreaking that we didn’t already know or suspect about Samsung’s upcoming extra-large phones, but it is pretty staggering that a video with this much information and detail is popping up ahead of an official announcement.

Kravis, 76, is one of the founders of the investment firm Kohlberg Kravis and Roberts Inc. Forbes reported he has put $125 million toward Columbia University’s Business School.

The East 65th Street robbery also occurred fewer than 10 blocks from 740 Park Ave., which is home to the “world’s richest apartment building,” according to a 2006 book by Michael Gross.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo briefly addressed the topic of crime and other issues affecting New York City in the context of the ultra-wealthy during a Monday afternoon press conference, when he was asked if he’s considered imposing a millionaire's tax.

“We used to be worried, millionaire’s tax, people might leave,” he said, in part. “No, no, the burden shifted – we’re trying to get people to come back.”

The Democrat said there was a host of issues that needed to be addressed, and a millionaire’s tax would likely further prevent these people, who are able to afford to go elsewhere, from returning to New York, especially the Big Apple.

“COVID is under control, we’re going to make progress helping the homeless, were going to clean up the graffiti, we’re going to fix crime,” he said. “On top of that, you want to say, ‘And by the way, when you come back, you’re gonna get a big tax increase’?”


A single percent of New York’s population pays half of the state’s taxes, he said, “and they’re the most mobile people on the globe.”

“I literally talk to people all day long, who are now in their Hamptons house, who also lived here, or in their Hudson Valley house or in their Connecticut weekend house,” Cuomo continued. “They’re not coming back right now. And you know what else they’re thinking, if I stay there, they pay a lower income tax because they don’t pay the New York City surcharge. So, that would be a bad place if we had to go there.”
