But Robert hasn’t had much to do with his family’s business lately. He was pushed out of the family business in 1990, after his younger brother, Douglas, was appointed by their father, Seymour, to lead the development business.

Robert has been estranged from his family ever since. The divide is so strong between the siblings running the Durst Organisation and Robert, that Douglas went as far as to call him “a true psychopath.”

The rest of the Durst family still owns some serious real estate in NYC, here are some of the most recognisable and important buildings.
