Partner Jennifer Mazawey was recently featured on WNYC Public Radio on a program entitled, "Newark Crime Rates Continue to Drop, But It's as Much About Perception as Reality".
The article quotes, "While outsiders' perception might be keeping some visitors away, real estate developers are continuing to trickle into Newark. Jennifer Mazawey, an attorney who works with developers, said they feel Baraka's administration has been welcoming to them. "And I think the more people we have, the more business, the more residents, I think the more likely it is that those crime rates go down," Mazawey said. Most importantly for Newark, Mazawey said the city is changing. And as crime dips, interest in Newark continues to grow. "Listen it's a slow change, but it's changing," she said."
Ms. Mazawey is a Partner in the Commercial Real Estate & Redevelopment Law, Environmental Law, Construction Law & Litigation, Land Use & Approvals, and Education Law Practices.
