Trump’s former Greenwich home on the market for $54 million
mysanantonio.com / Sun, 18 Jan 2015 06:00:00 UT

A trip through the double doors of the home, built in 1939, gives way to a three-story rotunda set off by a double staircase and crowned by a grand chandelier. [...] a trip throughout the rest of the house, which spans nearly 20,000 square feet, makes it feel like a normal home, with a cage of birds chirping in the sunlight and empty kennels for dogs who are out exercising. [...] when Hatton combed through the digital records of the Greenwich Multiple Listing Service, she found only five listings at or above $30 million since records have been kept electronically -- about 15 years ago. Originally built for $200,000 in 1939, it earned the distinction of the largest residential permit issued by Greenwich's building department that year. "There are very few properties like this, something with six acres on the water on a peninsula like this," said Lurie as she walked into a wood-paneled library on the first floor, where tall windows overlook a putting green and the still blue water of the harbor. "[...] a buyer needs to have the money," she said. "For 1998, that was a very big sale," said Lurie, who added the current owners immediately began a massive renovation, which includes a tennis court, as well as a 4,000-square-foot addition, built in 2000.

Prosecutor: Guns were smuggled aboard US airliners
mysanantonio.com / Wed, 24 Dec 2014 00:16:26 UT
NEW YORK (AP) — A brazen scheme in which guns — even an AK-47 rifle — were taken onto passenger jets for years in carry-on luggage was described by a Brooklyn prosecutor Tuesday as a terrorism threat that should cause the airline industry to end the practice of letting some workers enter airports without security screening. Thompson's comment came as he described a case brought against five people, including an airline baggage handler who was charged a day earlier by federal authorities in Atlanta. The prosecutor said Henry was given the guns, sometimes in airport restrooms, by Eugene Harvey, 31, an Atlanta baggage handler who worked for Delta before he was fired as a result of the investigation. Investigators videotaped him in the Atlanta airport prior to a morning flight to Kennedy International Airport in New York, where he was videotaped leaving the airport and was followed to his residence in Brooklyn. The prosecutor said investigators believe he has been transporting guns on planes for at least five years, using companion passes available because his mother had worked for airlines for years before retiring. The Transportation Security Administration, which is responsible for screening airline passengers, said in a statement that it takes "potential for insider threats at airports very seriously."
