NEW YORK: Danny Meyer's First Job


We burned the shoe leather for you this week at ICSC's New York National Conference, where we snapped famed restaurateur Danny Meyer bookended by Urstadt Biddle Properties' James Aries and Massey Knakal's Ben Fox. You know the Union Square Hospitality Group CEO best for Shake Shack, but his first job in NYC was actually shaking down shoplifters for retail security firm Checkpoint Systems. He once apprehended a man who hid meat under his hat, only to be betrayed by blood dripping down his face. (Only steal well done, people.)
