A Night with the Stars

Who needs Beyonce or Kelly Clarkson to get the party started? REBNY's 117th Annual Banquet on Thursday hosted just as many dignitaries as the Capitol steps on Inauguration Day, and Bisnow was on hand to snap the superstars.

Inside the VIP reception at the Hilton, we snapped New York Hotel & Motel Trades Council prez Peter Ward, Building and Construction Trades Council prez Gary LaBarbera, and Tishman Speyer co-CEO and REBNY chairman Rob Speyer showing us there's more than one way to wear a tux. (And at 2,200 attendees, there was more black and white than the penguin exhibit at the Central Park Zoo.)

Elected officials made a big splash at the event. US Sen. Chuck Schumer used his time with esteemed Fried Frank real estate attorney Jon Mechanic to prep for yesterday's full day of hangin' with President Obama. He was emcee for America's big day.
