    Harry Weinberg's life before he endowed Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation was controversial. He was a buyer of large tracts of distressed real estate in Baltimore, Honolulu and elsewhere. He refused to maintain the properties and they were often in terrible condition. He rented these properties to the poor and desperate. The term "slumlord" was heard often. Former Mayor Willliam Donald Schaeffer begged Weinberg to sell the properties so that they could be rehabilitated. He refused. In his other business practices, he was equally lacking in ethics. He purchased distressed transit systems in major cities and then ran them without maintainence. To force a fare increase from the city of New York, he once fired 29 disabled workers which triggered a huge strike.
