MaryAnne Gilmartin is one of the most powerful women in real estate in the country. Born in Queens and married to a retired New York City police detective, she's brokered the deals that have brought about The New York Times skyscraper designed by Renzo Piano, as well as the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, which was the first new indoor major sports and entertainment arena in New York City since 1968.
As part of Here & Now's View from the Top series, Gilmartin speaks with host Meghna Chakrabarti about finding "equilibrium" in the competing demands of work and family, and how she found her calling in a field long dominated by men.
