Sangiacomo, Still Going Strong

New, 3 comments

On Sunday, the Chron published a now-online profile of landlord-developer Angelo Sangiacomo — a nice story we can happily roll into the American mythos of self-made man. The plucky 85-year-old owns a small castle in Italy, swims laps instead of golfing, and is also known as "the father of rent control." Asked why he didn't just drop the Trinity property given the huge headache it was giving him years ago: "We never sell! That's our business; you buy the son of a bitch and you hold on to it. Every time you don't buy, you make a mistake." [SFGate, previously]
