A BRIEF HISTORY

Today

A LEADING NET LEASE REIT

Today, Getty Realty Corp. (NYSE: GTY) is the leading publicly traded, net lease REIT specializing in the acquisition, financing and development of convenience, automotive and other single tenant retail real estate. As of May 31, 2021, our portfolio included 1,007 properties located in 36 states and Washington, D.C., and our tenants operated under a variety of national and regional retail brands.

Headquartered in New York, New York, our team of 30+ dedicated professionals reflect the broad capabilities of our business and our commitment to effectively serve all of our stakeholders.

1985-1997

GETTY PETROLEUM AND GETTY REALTY

In 1985, Power Test capitalized on an antitrust dispute involving the proposed acquisition of the Getty Oil Company by Texaco, Inc. and acquired all of Getty Oil Company’s Northeastern petroleum distribution and marketing assets. The transformational acquisition included gasoline stations, terminals and retail supply contracts, along with the Getty® name and trademark, and the Company changed its name to Getty Petroleum Corp.

In 1997, the Company executed a spin-off of all the petroleum marketing and distribution assets owned by Getty Petroleum to a new public company which, only a few years later, was taken private in a well-publicized sale to Lukoil, one of Russia’s largest integrated oil companies.

The real estate assets retained after the spin-off became Getty Realty and laid the foundation for the nationwide portfolio of convenience and automotive retail assets that the Company owns today.

1955

Power Test Corporation

In 1955, Leo Liebowitz and Milton Safenowitz co-founded our Company through the acquisition of a single gas station in New York City. Over the next 15 years, the Company continued to assemble a portfolio of gas and service stations and built our predecessor entity, Power Test Corporation. Power Test went public in 1971 and grew to become the largest independent gasoline distributor on the East Coast.
