THE CROWN PRINCE - THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE LIFE OF DICK BLUMENTHAL
Hartford Courant, Sunday, October 3, 2004
By Elizabeth Hamilton, investigative reporter

EXCERPT It requires a good bit of effort to find out how much the Blumenthal's paid for their home -or, for that matter, what it even looks like. Search the land records in Greenwich Town Hall and you won’t find the Blumenthal name anywhere.

The 5,608-square-foot house, with a market value of $2.5 million in 2001, was transferred for $1 and ``other considerations’’ to the ``John and Abigail Trust,’’ named by his wife, Blumenthal said, after the second president and his wife. ``[Cynthia] didn’t want it to be reported that the attorney general bought a house on such and such a street,’’ Blumenthal said, adding that they own their home.

Given Blumenthal’s financial disclosure statement, it would be implausible that they wouldn’t. The statement lists 13 trust funds held in either his wife’s or children’s names, and one blind trust held jointly by him and his wife.

Cynthia Blumenthal is the daughter of Peter Malkin, a Greenwich real estate mogul who heads the investor group that owns the Empire State Building and other Manhattan properties. She and her children owned partnership interests in 30 real estate ventures, including the Empire State Building, according to the 2002 disclosure.

So, Richard Blumenthal seems to have married a bag of money too, just like Senator Long Face in the neighboring state.
