NEW YORK (AP) - New York real estate developer Daniel Brodsky has been chosen as the new chairman of the board of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Brodsky was elected by the Met’s 40-member board on Tuesday. He will assume the position in September.

The 66-year-old Brodsky succeeds James Houghton, who has been the Met’s chairman for 13 years and was named trustee emeritus.

Brodsky is also a trustee of the New York City Ballet and New York University.

He is managing director of the Brodsky Organization, a company that owns and manages thousands of apartments in more than 60 Manhattan buildings.

In addition, he is on New York City’s Cultural Affairs Advisory Commission. The city owns the Met building.
