Trump Tower fatality bankrupt art dealer Todd Brassner


Apartment goes up in flames and the owner has filed for bankruptcy? 
I don't think it's a coincidence. 

NY Post reports the 67-year-old man who died in the Trump Tower fire was an art dealer who loved the finer things in life.
Todd Brassner purchased his high-rise apartment back in 1996.

“He was a lovely man. He couldn’t have been nicer,” said real-estate broker Dolly Lenz, who sold him the apartment. “He was soft spoken but strong willed and opinionated when he was talking about art. He knew his stuff and he wanted you to know it too. He was very pleasant to be with.”

But Brassner struggled financially in recent years and filed for bankruptcy, according to court records.

“He liked fine dining and the best things in life and I think his expenses got ahead of him,” a friend of his told The Post.
