KZA Realty Group & RM Friedland Affiliation Provides The Bronx With Unparalleled Service Opportunities https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4308-kza-realty-group-rm-friedland-affiliation-provides-the-bronx-with-unparalleled-service-opportunities4308-kza-realty-group-rm-friedland-affiliation-provides-the-bronx-with-unparalleled-service-opportunities https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/neighbors/4308-kza-realty-group-rm-friedland-affiliation-provides-the-bronx-with-unparalleled-service-opportunities4308-kza-realty-group-rm-friedland-affiliation-provides-the-bronx-with-unparalleled-service-opportunities

L to R: Kathy Zamechansky, KZA Realty Group and Sarah Jones-Maturo,RM Friedland

Two of the most renowned commercial real estate firms in The Bronx announce a new affiliation agreement that will bring unprecedented expertise and client service benefits to property and business owners.

Commercial real estate brokers KZA Realty Group and RM Friedland will join forces on select assignments to add value for clients. The alliance combines the strength of RM Friedland’s brokerage team and staff resources with KZA’s strong ties to the Bronx community.

“Our companies offer tremendous resources, market knowledge and a peerless track record in The Bronx,” said Sarah Jones-Maturo, president of RM Friedland. “Together, we have a tremendous breadth and depth of experience in the borough, not to mention a combined 75 year track record.”

The new arrangement reflects the borough’s booming business climate. KZA and RM Friedland are the exclusive commercial brokers for the massive La Central development in The Hub, for example, the revitalized shopping district in the heart of the borough. The largest development currently underway in The Bronx, La Central will create more than 1.1 million square feet of residential and commercial space. In addition, the two firms are leasing space at 354 East 149th Street, also located in the downtown Hub.

“For the past 25 years, we have developed enviable relationships with owners, tenants, elected officials and community organizations borough-wide,” said Kathy Zamechansky, president of KZA Realty Group. “Now, tapping the resources of RM Friedland, we will be better positioned to navigate complex projects. Our complementary capabilities and market knowledge provide clients with a tremendous level of support.”

With interest in The Bronx at an all time high, the potent collaboration between KZA and RM Friedland facilitates opportunities for tenants and buyers, said Jones-Maturo. “The Bronx is, in many ways, considered the next frontier for development, but many people have trouble navigating the market, “ she said.

The synergy between KZA and RM Friedland will help direct clients to areas that are most beneficial. “Together, we can be the go-to team for tenants and landlords, along with buyers and sellers, due to RM Friedland’s assets and our ability to provide community and government relations services to help facilitate approvals for an array of projects,” said Zamechansky.

Founded in 1970, Friedland Realty Services emerged as a leading innovator in the commercial real estate market by bringing jobs, thriving businesses and economic vitality to the Metropolitan New York City region. In 2016, the firm rebranded as RM Friedland after aligning with Robert Martin Company, which helped pioneer the Platinum Mile of office buildings along the I-287 corridor.

KZA Realty Group is one of the driving forces behind the economic revitalization of The Bronx. In addition to helping national brands find suitable locations in the borough, Zamechansky served as the first president of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation and as executive director of the Bronx Chamber of Commerce. She is the recipient of many awards, including Businesswoman of the Year by the Bronx Chamber of Commerce (2018), the President’s Award from the Bronx Manhattan North Association of Realtors (2018) and recognition as one of the 25 Most Influential Bronx Leaders by the City and State of New York (2017).

"KZA Realty and RM Friedland’s collaboration fuses full-service expertise with boots-on-the-ground knowledge of the Bronx to create successful leasing outcomes and get the job done," said Alexandra Kaplan, project manager at The Hudson Companies.

KZA Realty Group is a commercial real estate brokerage and development consulting firm based in New York City. Founded in 1998 by real estate professional Kathy Zamechansky, KZA specializes in commercial planning, project management, community and government relations, finance, marketing, and communications. Ms. Zamechansky is the President of the Bronx Manhattan North Association of Realtors and a member of several community and business organizations in the Bronx and Harlem, including the Board of Directors of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, Board of Governors of the Bronx, the Manhattan Board of Realtors, the Board of Directors of the New Bronx Chamber of Commerce, the Harlem Business Alliance and the Advisory Board for the Fund for the Future Women Leaders of the Bronx. In 2009, she was named one of the 25 Most Influential Women by The Bronx Times Reporter and was awarded the Realtor of the Year by theManhattan North Association of Realtors (BMAR). She may be contacted directly via cell at (347) 386-9452 or email at kzama@aol.com.

Kerry Kennedy talks family, hope, and politics in exclusive interview with Alex Fischetti https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4309-kerry-kennedy-talks-family-hope-and-politics-in-exclusive-interview-with-alex-fischetti4309-kerry-kennedy-talks-family-hope-and-politics-in-exclusive-interview-with-alex-fischetti https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/life/4309-kerry-kennedy-talks-family-hope-and-politics-in-exclusive-interview-with-alex-fischetti4309-kerry-kennedy-talks-family-hope-and-politics-in-exclusive-interview-with-alex-fischetti

Being born into one of the most influential political dynasties in American history, Ms. Kerry Kennedy has been beautifully carrying out the examples set by her father Robert Kennedy, her mother Ethel Kennedy, her grandparents Joseph and Rose Kennedy and her uncles, President John F. Kennedy and Senator Ted Kennedy.

I had the great honor of interviewing Kerry about her new book Robert F. Kennedy: Ripples Of Hope (now out in bookstores everywhere). Here, Kerry shares her views on the state of human rights and the importance of leaving an indelible mark on the world.

1. CONGRATULATIONS on your new book! There are some incredible contributors here! How does it feel to know that 50 years after his passing RFK is still one of our modern day leaders biggest influences?

It’s inspiring to know that my father’s legacy continues to inform not just activists and political leaders, but that everyone around the world can find something empowering in his work for social justice and his moral imagination, and optimism about change. 

2. When you look at today's politicians, who would you say comes the closest to following your father’s principles?

I think the world leader who most closely shares my dad’s commitment to peace and justice, and who demonstrates extraordinary courage while maintaining a cheerful demeanor is easy—Pope  Francis.

You don’t see many people doing what my father did in public life - telling Americans not just what they want to hear, but what they need to know. Speaking truth to power is a challenging act, but I see my nephew, Congressman Joe Kennedy III doing important work on health care, immigration and so many other issues. Joe shares that moral courage and creativity my father believed would make our government an example to the world. 

3. One thing I’ve always loved about you and your family is how your faith in the Lord has always been an ultimate resource in igniting the Kennedy spirit. Do you feel our reliance on The Lord in our country has changed from when your uncle and father were in office and how important is it to have The Lord’s guidance in politics?

Faith is a personal journey, and each individual is going to have their own experience in finding strength or empathy. What we have seen in the decades since my father’s campaign is a weaponization of faith by political extremists in the United States, where faith is too often used as an armament weapon to divide people instead of as a source of hope that unites all of us as children of God. 

4. You’ve done incredible humanitarian work as President of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. As you look at the state of our country today, what more do you think can be done for the benefit of human rights?

There is always something we can do - whether that means an organization like Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights going to the Texas border last month to call for an end to the Trump-Miller family separation policy, or an individual working in their community soup kitchen or helping an elderly neighbor. It’s through engagement and action that we develop the habits of compassion and respect for human dignity. Even the smallest ripples of hope make a difference.

5. Of all the work you’ve done as a human rights activist for the past 37 years, what would you say are some of your greatest accomplishments and what do you hope to achieve in the future that you haven’t already?

Let me start by saying that I am one part of a team of partners who work together to create change—and I have never accomplished anything in this field on my own.  That’s one thing I love about human rights work—it’s all about comradery and pooling resources for the greater good.  If you measure impact in terms of lives changed, then I’d have to answer with one of the many cases our team of lawyers has won, which overturned bad laws and created a more just system—like overturning the law in Uganda which made homosexuality punishable by life in prison without parole.  But what touches me most deeply is when I learn that one of our partners was released from prison or was able to escape the threat of death because of our advocacy.  It's that concrete, personal connection which I find most gratifying. 

6. What advice would you give to any young people wanting to enter public service?

Now is the time. We are at an important crossroads in our nation’s history, and all around the country, we’ve seen young people getting involved, running for office, or even lending their time and support to nonprofits o activist groups. It has never been nor more important to our future to get involved.

For more information on the great work Kerry does to make the world a better place check out the RFK Center website at here.  You can purchase her book, Robert F. Kennedy: Ripples Of Hope at your local bookstore.

Frozen Custard Shop Opens in New Rochelle https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/places/4305-frozen-custard-shop-opens-in-new-rochelle4305-frozen-custard-shop-opens-in-new-rochelle https://news.hamlethub.com/riverdale/places/4305-frozen-custard-shop-opens-in-new-rochelle4305-frozen-custard-shop-opens-in-new-rochelle

An inviting new dessert shop has opened its doors in the Wykagyl Shopping Center here in New Rochelle called Mikey Dubb’s Frozen Custard. The shop is owned, operated and conceived by longtime New Rochelle resident Michael Weissman (Dubb’s is for the “W” in Weissman) and offers a delicious twist on ice cream that will be a revelation to many in Westchester County.

Weissman explained what sparked his motivation to open up a Custard shop in New Rochelle stating: “Following several trips to the Midwest where frozen custard has long been a popular treat, I wondered why this delicious ice cream, with its luxurious mouth-feel and supremely satisfying taste, was not more readily available in Westchester County?” With that, he set off on a journey to learn all there is to know about frozen custard and create a brand that is uniquely his own – and the result was Mikey Dubb’s Frozen Custard.

Frozen custard is ice cream, but unlike other ice creams, Mikey Dubb’s Frozen Custard contains only 20% air by volume, which creates a much denser, creamier texture. It is available in vanilla, chocolate and a “flavor of the day”, and is made fresh in the store daily. The Italian ices, offered in a variety of flavors, provide a creamier “mouth feel” than other ices many may have tried. All of the frozen treats (including a vegan offering) are available in cups, cones, shakes, sundaes or concretes—a blended specialty with mix-ins that are not to be missed.

The cheerful décor, friendly staff, and upbeat music add to the vacation-like feel when you walk through the door. As Weissman notes, “I wanted to create a happy space and the fact that I have been able to do so in my own community of New Rochelle is incredibly satisfying.”

Customers have been delighted by the custard’s smooth, creamy texture and the rich, delicious flavors. “I’ve been eating ice cream all my life, so I wondered how different it could be,” commented first-time visitor Devon Gillman. “But the taste and texture of this custard is truly exceptional.”

The certified Kosher shop, located at 1282 North Avenue, is open daily from noon to 10 pm. All items are available as take-out. Additional offerings, including cakes and ice cream sandwiches, will be coming soon.

New Rochelle Mayor Noam Branson expressed his excitement for the opening of the new shop: “We are thrilled that Michael chose to launch Mikey Dubb’s Frozen Custard in New Rochelle and I encourage everyone to stop by for a real treat.” A grand opening will take place on August 8, which fittingly is National Frozen Custard Day. Following the opening ceremony at 2:00 p.m., free frozen custard and Italian ice will be offered until 6:00 p.m.  In return, Weissman asks that visitors make a voluntary contribution to support three local nonprofits--Hope Community Services, the New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence, and the Guidance Center. 

Jennifer Lanser, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce and self-proclaimed ice-cream connoisseur added, “When you want to reward yourself, this is the place to go. The chocolate frozen treat has a creamy texture that is worth the trip.” As always, the New Rochelle Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and this is one, Jennifer, said she surely won’t miss.

“Kathy is a highly respected member of the local real estate industry and she remains a tireless advocate for brokers in The Bronx,” said association president Christina Leigh-Stevens. “She always informs our members about trends and issues affecting the industry and chaired out successful legislative committee, which helped educate state and local representatives about our interests and concerns.”

In addition, Zamechansky accepted an appointment as vice chair of the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation, an organization that she served as president in 1981, the year of its founding.

“With this appointment, my involvement with the Bronx Overall Economic Development Corporation has truly come full circle,” said Zamechansky. “The Bronx is a great place to grow a business and I look forward to contributing to the dynamic economic changes that are sweeping the borough.”

Working with the office of the Bronx Borough President, the corporation provides economic development services for businesses in the borough, including site location services, business consulting and the arrangement of low-cost government loans.

“I am delighted that the board has recognized Kathy's contributions and leadership capabilities by selecting her as the Vice Chair,” said Marlene Cintron, economic development corporation president. “She has been key to the success of our borough for the last nine years and I look to more of the same in her new capacity.”
