The Milstein family was recently recognized for its long tradition of philanthropy in New York City by The Real Deal: New York City Real Estate News. In the illustration of the connections between the city’s nonprofit institutions and the real estate community accompanying “The Charity Web,” the Milstein family was given a central position. The Real Deal reporter Leigh Kamping-Carter traces the family’s involvement to the founding of Milstein Properties by Paul and Seymour Milstein, which was the basis for “several family foundations that control tens of millions of dollars in charitable wealth.” Kamping-Carter highlights Irma Milstein’s membership on the board of the American Museum of Natural History, where the Irma and Paul Milstein Family Hall of Ocean Life is located. Paul and Irma’s son, Howard, chairs the boards of the New York Blood Center and American Skin Association and is a member of the boards of Weill Cornell Medical Center and the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Other family members are represented on the boards of the New York Public Library, the Metropolitan Opera, New York University, and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.
