Last week, the New York Post published a list of the New York men it considers to be the city’s twelve most eligible bachelors. As always, the Post keeps it classy with its criteria: “young. hot. rich.”
The list includes Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, comedian Andy Samberg, and Knicks forward Danilo Gallinari. It also includes a Cardozo 2L.
How did a second year student at Cardozo Law School make the list? It helps that he’s a bajillionaire…
Moinian, 26, is a real estate scion. From the New York Post:
A full-time second-year law student at Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, Moinian still maintains an e-mail address at dad Joe’s massive real estate empire (the company owns and manages more than $8 billion in assets), where, until last year, he worked on the 57-story W downtown hotel and residential project. Any smart NYU girl with a perfect blowout could have him eating out of her perfectly manicured hands.
The Post points out the pros:
Wicked house parties — rumor has it the 56th floor of the W downtown will be his personal bachelor pad when the much-delayed project is complete.
And the cons:
Studying, tests and the bar could get in the way of, you know, going to the bar.
True. An additional con: Cardozo? Really?
In 2008, Moinian talked to the New York Observer about his decision to go to law school:
“[L]aw is something that no matter how many times you go through the experience, you’re not usually doing it yourself. It’s the lawyers doing it for you. So if you come up against any lawyer, no matter how smart you are, he’s going to run circles around you. … I don’t want to walk into a meeting with a lawyer and hear him saying things I can’t comprehend. If I have the time and energy and drive to do law school, why not? It’s another notch on my belt.
“No one gave me law school, you know?” he added. “That’s a big thing for me.”
