A New York real estate developer and former business partner of President Donald Trump has bought a sketch of the Empire State Building drawn by Trump for $16,000 at an auction. Elie Hirschfeld, president of Hirschfeld Properties, purchased the 12-by-9-inch black marker depiction of the iconic New York City skyscraper at an auction in California and online last week. It was created by Trump for a charity auction in Florida during the time he opened his Mar-a-Lago estate as a private club in 1995.

Julien’s Auctions says the piece signed by Trump went for less than $100 the first time it was sold. In a statement Monday, Hirschfeld says he plans to hang it in his offices a couple of blocks from Trump Tower.
