Developer claims anti-Semitism blocked Monroe housing project BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

F

or 16 years, Highview Properties D.H.F. has gone through a rigorous review process to build a subdivision in the town of Monroe in Orange County, but just as the developer got a key land-use approval, the project stalled. The town imposed a moratorium on pending developments. More restrictive zoning was implemented. Routine administrative approvals were denied. The impetus for the delays, Highview charges in a lawsuit filed on Jan. 31 in federal court in White Plains, is anti-Hasidic animus. Newly elected town officials who campaigned against the subdivision, the complaint says, thwarted the project because of religious bias. “We’re not allowed to say anything,” said Anthony Cardone, the Monroe town supervisor and one of several officials who are defendants, “other than to say, yes, we were served with a lawsuit.” Former Town Supervisor Harley Doles, who also is named as a defendant, felt less constrained. “Do I think their vested rights were violated for reasons other than legal grounds?” he asked. “Yes, I do.” Highview submitted plans » ANTI-SEMITISM

Tunnel vision STATE AGAIN EXPLORES LONG ISLAND SOUND CROSSING

BY ALEESIA FORNI aforni@westfairinc.com

N

ew York state is reaching out to developers who may be interested in working on the construction of an 18-mile bridge or tunnel connecting Westchester County to Long Island, a project that could cost up to $55 billion. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that the state Department of Transportation has issued a request for expressions of interest regarding the proposed Long Island tunnel project. The request invites interested developers to provide input on the engineering and financial considerations that

will be used to inform a future request for proposals. “Improving and expanding our transportation infrastructure is essential to moving New York forward,” Cuomo said. “Today we are taking another step to advance an ambitious project that would reduce traffic on the impossibly congested Long Island Expressway, improve connectivity and help ensure the region’s future economic competitiveness.” Organizations that are lead contractors on bridge or tunnel projects of at least $1 billion in size or equity investors with a substantial development and investment track record in newbuild transportation projects exceeding $500 million individ-

ually are invited to respond to the state’s request for expressions of interest. The request follows the release earlier this year of a preliminary study commissioned by the Department of Transportation. Cuomo committed $5 million for the study in 2016, which ultimately concluded that the construction of a Long Island Sound Tunnel would be feasible. Proponents of the tunnel say the connection would reduce travel time and congestion, improve air quality and improve access to expanded labor markets. The 82-page study, which was prepared by Montreal consulting firm WSP, found that » LONG ISLAND SOUND

NBC Sports’ Stamford team relishes Olympic challenge BY PAUL SCHOTT Hearst Connecticut Media Group

M

illions of viewers will watch the action unfold this month on the slopes and rinks in PyeongChang, South Korea. They could not do so without the help of a team based some 6,850 miles away in Stamford. The Olympics represent Stamford-based NBC Sports’ mostwatched and demanding production. From Feb. 8 through Feb. 25, a local contingent of hundreds will aim to seamlessly produce thousands of hours of coverage for a global audience. The pressure is intense, but members of the Connecticut roster say they have the experience and strategy to deliver. “This is where it all comes together,” Tim Canary, NBC Sports’ vice president of engineering, said in a recent interview at the headquarters on the city’s East Side. “We have all these raw materials coming in, and we essentially process them to create the finished product.”

EXTENSIVE PLANNING

The PyeongChang games comprise the third Olympics to be broadcast from Stamford since NBC Sports opened its approxi-

mately 300,000-square-foot complex at 1 Blachley Road in 2013. The site formerly served as the manufacturing base for the Clairol hair coloring company. NBC Sports’ planning for Olympics starts years out and the technical preparations ramp up months ahead. By last summer, local staff had already begun assembling wiring and other essential equipment needed to connect with PyeongChang. Digital coverage will again be crucial. For the first time, NBC Sports streamed the Feb. 9 opening ceremony on its app and on nbcolympics.com. At peak periods, NBC Sports will run between 10 and 15 livestreams simultaneously. The headquarters includes a digital hub known as the Highlights Factory. In that room, a team of about 40 will monitor live-streams, log and edit clips and create video packages. The Highlights Factory will produce about 100 videos each day during the games, according to Eric Hamilton, NBC Sports’ director of digital Olympic video production. “It’s driven by a team of interns who we train to watch Olympics and look out for the kind of things that might not be obviously interesting, but are interesting,” Hamilton said. “At the end of the day, we

know all the top stories and have not only footage from which we can cut highlights, but we also have the ability to get all kinds of behind-thescenes content.” Yards away, the Broadcast Operations Center functions as the nerve center of Olympic activity in Stamford. In a room covered with TV monitors, scores of feeds for TV and digital platforms will arrive from PyeongChang. A subway map-like chart shows the labyrinth of connections between the two locations. Jarrett Frazier, manager of transmission operations and engineering, will oversee the center during the games. He worked on site at the past three Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Sochi, Russia, and London. “It’s helpful to know a lot of people from those previous games who will be in PyeongChang,” Frazier said. “We’ll know who to reach out to firsthand.” Several hundred staffers work at 1 Blachley Road throughout the year, but the total rises significantly during the Olympics. About 1,000 were based there during the last winter games in 2014. At the same time, the Stamford center continues to churn out content for NBC Sports’ other major productions, including the NFL — NBC broadcast the Feb. 4 Super Bowl — the NHL, NASCAR and English Premier League soccer. “It is a bit of double-whammy because we have been preparing for the Super Bowl as well,” Canary said. “But so far everything has been going well.”

CHALLENGES

With the PyeongChang games, NBC Sports will aim to improve upon its ratings from four years ago. The 2014 Sochi games averaged 21.4 million viewers in prime time, a 12 percent drop from the 24.4 million who watched on average during the 2010 games held in Vancouver, Canada. The viewership beat the 20.2 million average for the previous European winter games, which were held in 2006 in Torino, Italy. In comparison, NBC averaged about 25 million prime time viewers for its broadcast network during the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Given the winter games’ smaller viewership, some media experts question the value of NBC’s investment. In 2014, NBCU paid $7.75 billion to lock up Olympics rights through 2032. “You have a product that always runs in second place to the summer Olympics, and this has been an ongoing challenge,” said Daniel Durbin, director of the University of Southern California’s Institute of Sports, Media and Society. “You have sports that are not as commonly engaged in by the broad public as those in the summer games and a lack of real celebrity stars. Put those two together and you don’t have anything really to draw an audience.” Others see the winter Olympics as a worthwhile venture, even though they do not expect the PyeongChang edition to shatter ratings records. “Will the ratings be ridiculously great? Probably not,” said Josh Shuart, chairman of Sacred Heart University’s marketing and sports management department. “But the impact for NBC is that they’ll be advertising other programming and shows. It’s a platform for them to promote everything else they offer.” Amid the questions about the audience size, NBC production leaders say they remain focused on programming quality. “We push it because we know we have to be able to deliver the thing,” Hamilton said. “You really have to push the envelope.” pschott@scni.com; 203-9642236; twitter: @paulschott.

PepsiCo to add three-story parking garage in White Plains BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

T

he owner of 1111 and 1129 Westchester Ave. in White Plains, home to PepsiCo Inc.’s Platinum Mile offices, will add a three-level parking garage to accommodate its growing number of employees. Westpark Associates NY LLC, an affiliated company of New Jersey real estate firm Onyx Equities LLC, received approvals from the White Plains Common Council on Feb. 5 to build the garage on the southwest corner of the site on an already existing parking lot. The new 54,000-square-foot garage will contain 495 parking spaces. Those extra spaces have become necessary, project attorney Seth M. Mandelbaum told the council, as PepsiCo has settled into the space that was once intended as temporary offices. PepsiCo leased the space in 2012 during renovations at its Purchase office, and spent about $10 million renovating the White Plains office as well. “When they finished renovating in Purchase, they liked White Plains so much that they decided to rent out both buildings on a longer-term basis,” said Mandelbaum, a partner with McCullough Goldberger & Staudt LLP in White Plains. During that time, PepsiCo also vacated its 540,000-square-foot bottling division headquarters in Somers, sending more employees to White Plains and Purchase. PepsiCo is now the sole tenant on the two-building property, occupying about 370,000 square feet. Onyx bought the property and both buildings for $56.6 million in 2014. The office building formerly served as the headquarters for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. Starwood moved in 2012 to new offices at Harbor Point in Stamford. “PepsiCo really likes this location, likes being in White Plains, has enough employees to fill these buildings and to have even more employees in these buildings, but they do not have enough parking,” Mandelbaum said. PepsiCo went to Onyx, Mandelbaum said, and requested the company bring an application to the city to maximize the site’s parking, while taking into consideration the site’s environmentally sensitive status and nearby neighbors. “The garage architecture really took its cues from the existing office buildings on the campus, in terms of color, texture,” said Tim Tracy, executive vice president of Desman Associates, a national parking specialist that is leading the garage’s design. “We really try to treat this building as

if it were considered as part of the original design and construction on the property,” Tracy told the council. “So it doesn’t appear like an afterthought, but should have the same architectural elements and features as if the garage were constructed with the two office buildings.” The parking project would also include security improvements, such as a guard booth and additional gates, along with a TWB Freilich guest parking area. WCBJ The White Plains Zoning Board of 7.375” w x 7.125” h Appeals approved a variance that the proj10/30/17 ect required in November. Mandelbaum said construction would take about 10 months to a year. An Onyx spokesperson declined to provide an estimated project cost.

IN COURT BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfariinc.com

FAN PUTS YANKS AND BANK ON DEFENSE OVER SEASON TIX HIT

A Rockland County man has sued Citibank and the New York Yankees over a $26,000 charge on his credit card for season tickets he said he never ordered or received. Citibank said the man’s son ordered the tickets from a broker who was later arrested in a $70 million Ponzi scheme. The bank wants its money back and it has sued the card holder and the Yankees. Jerry Zandman, of Thiells, claims that Citibank violated the federal Fair Credit Billing Act and the Truth in Lending Acts. On April 9, according to Zandman's complaint, the Yankees charged $26,000 to his account without his knowledge or consent. Tickets were never provided. The charge showed up

on his May credit card statement. Zandman disputed the charge within the 60 days required by law, the complaint states, but Citi failed to reasonably investigate the error or reimburse him. He said he should have to forfeit no more than $50 under the fair credit law. Zandman claims he also disputed the charge with the Yankees in July. He has accused the baseball club of unjust enrichment for keeping the $26,000. The case was originally filed in state Supreme Court in Rockland in December. Citi had it transferred to federal court in White Plains on Jan. 29 with the Yankees’ consent. An attorney for the Yankees did not respond to a request for comment. Citi states in a court filing that it did investigate the disputed charge and while the inquiry was pending it applied a provisional credit to Zandman’s account. But the bank said it found that either Zandman ordered the tickets or he allowed his son, Michael, to use his credit card to order them. The tickets were

bought from National Events Co., a ticket broker that held an account with the Yankees. On May 31, the FBI arrested National Events’ CEO Jason Nissen, 44, of Rosyln, and charged him with wire fraud in an alleged $70 million Ponzi scheme. Nissen allegedly told investors that he was using their money to buy premium tickets for major sporting events and Broadway shows and to resell the tickets at a profit. Instead, the U.S. Attorney's Office said, Nissen used the money to repay previous investors and to enrich himself. Nissen has pleaded not guilty and the case is pending. Citi noted that Zandman did not dispute his credit card charge until after Nissen was charged with a crime. The bank countersued Zandman for breach of contract and unjust enrichment. He received the benefit of a loan, the bank claims, but has failed to reimburse Citi or pay the minimum amount due on the account. The unpaid balance as of mid-January was $27,097. But if Citi is found

APARTMENT DEVELOPER SUES HOUSING NONPROFIT OVER INELIGIBLE TENANTS

The Modern — a low-income rental housing project in Mount Vernon that MacQuesten Development opened in September — is accusing a nonprofit organization of not doing its part in finding eligible tenants. The building owner, 130 Modern LLC, sued Communit y Housing Innovations Inc. for $2 million in state Supreme Court in Westchester on Jan. 29. Community Housing Innovations leased units to tenants who had too much income, the lawsuit claims, “preventing needy individuals and families who did qualify from gaining access to this low-income housing project.” “CHI categorically denies any wrongdoing,” its attorney, James K. Landau, responded. The nonprofit organization, based in White Plains, was founded in 1991 and provides housing for homeless and low-income individuals and families. It booked $22.4 million in revenue in 2016, according to an auditor’s report, and had assets of $28.5 million. MacQuesten Development, of Pelham, the parent of 130 Modern, built the $31.5 million, 11-story structure at 130 Mount Vernon Ave. It has 81 apartments and groundfloor retail space. MacQuesten said it paid CHI $100,000 to market the project and find tenants whose household income was no more than 60 percent of the area median income. Twenty-two apartments also were set aside for households with at least one person recovering from a psychiatric disability. But CHI approved at least one tenant and leased at least one apartment to an applicant who was ineligible to live in The Modern, the complaint states. CHI employees then allegedly tried to conceal their mistakes from the developer and from a tax credit compliance consultant. Tax credits allow developers to get a dollar-for-dollar

reduction on federal taxes on a portion of the development costs. Developers typically allocate their credits to investors in exchange for development capital. The MacQuesten project received $16.3 million in tax credits, according to a 2014 report by the federal Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. MacQuesten claims that its tax credits have been reduced, costing it $100,000 in capital contributions. It said losses could increase if more tenants are found to be ineligible, and the error potentially puts it in violation of financing and regulatory agreements. MacQuesten accuses CHI of breach of contract, negligence and acting in bad faith. “There were issues with the lease-up,” Landau, the Community Housing Innovations attorney, said, “which we hope to resolve amicably with the developer.”

D.A.’S OFFICE RECOUPS UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS FOR FALSE CLAIMS

The Westchester County District Attorney’s Office recovered nearly $318,000 in fraudulent unemployment compensation claims last year and returned the ill-gotten gains to the state for the benefit of legiti-

mate claimants. District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino Jr. said in a news release that he has prosecuted false unemployment claims worth more than $892,000 in five years. From 2013 through 2017, his office prosecuted 102 bogus claims ranging from $3,500 to $30,000. Among the cases were people living outside of the U.S. who conspired with family and friends living here to falsely certify their eligibility. Benefits fraud essentially amounts to lying about work. The state Department of Labor identifies several versions of the scam: • Working “off the books” while collecting benefits. • Using another person’s identity to file a claim. • Helping another person file a false claim. • Collaborating with an employer to illegally claim benefits. • Misrepresenting how you lost your job. The benefits are a lifeline for people who need help while they search for work, Scarpino said. When money is bilked from the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, businesses have to make up the difference and the costs are passed along to consumers.


REAL ESTATE

BY RICK HAUGHEY

T

he National Multifamily Housing Council’s 2018 Consumer Housing Insights Survey found that more than one-third of adults agree “apartment communities haven’t changed over the past 50 years.” In a world where nearly every industry has faced massive disruptive forces in recent years, anticipating and planning how the multifamily industry can respond and co-opt changing trends and desires is key. While the real estate industry has been notoriously slow to evolve, changing demographics and psychographics, shifting consumer preferences and a near limitless string of new technologies will soon force a paradigm shift in the multifamily sector. Just as WeWork changed the office market and Airbnb shook up the hotel industry, these seismic shifts will redefine how apartments are designed and built.

The apartment of the future: what tomorrow’s residents want dents note space to refresh and renew is key. What’s more, 93 percent of respondents believe it is important to have a tranquil space to unwind and unplug and 57 percent wish they had an environment that would promote better sleep. Similarly, 76 percent of respondents noted they are working to achieve a healthy lifestyle. While fitness centers have long ranked as one of the most desirable apartment amenities, a new vision for the consumer experience is paving the way for interactive fitness and wellness centers. Health and wellness has also evolved into a more comprehensive concept that includes mind, body and spirit. To meet these and other needs, consumers crave units that can adapt to meet their desires. When it comes to flexibility, 83 percent of respondents believe it is important to

have a space that evolves with different stages of your life, while 78 percent believe it is important to have a space that can transform to meet different needs. In addition to flexible living spaces, data shows consumers crave space for face-to-face interaction. For 83 percent of respondents, places to socialize face-to-face with friends and family was considered an important housing feature. Interestingly, the disruptive forces facing the real estate industry, such as the sharing economy, are chipping away at the divide between public and private space, requiring tomorrow’s apartment communities to be integrated into the fabric of the larger community. The Consumer Housing Insights Survey found that millennials were 20 percent more likely than baby

boomers to believe apartments should provide helpful services and amenities for the surrounding community. As the multifamily industry prepares to meet the next wave of renter’s needs, understanding how changes in demographics, consumer habits, technology, transportation, employment and health will impact the way renters live is key to building the apartments of the future that stand the best chance of weathering and even flourishing during the coming disruption. Rick Haughey is vice president for industry technolo�y initiatives at the National Multifamily Housing Council, a nonpro�it advocacy and research organization for the apartment industry with headquarters in Washington, D.C. He can be reached at rhaughey@nmhc.org 202-974-2375.

ADAPTATION IS KEY

The rise of telecommuting, a growing focus on global health and wellness, and changing perspectives on public versus private spaces all point toward a mounting need for flexible housing solutions that can evolve to meet residents’ needs. When it comes to work habits, 63 percent of survey respondents noted that space to telework or work remotely is important,

The Continuum luxury apartments opened last fall at 55 Bank St. in downtown White Plains.

while 40 percent indicated they plan to telecommute more in the future. Some multifamily developers and property managers are already responding to this trend, taking underutilized common spaces such as party rooms and transforming them into modern, tech-savvy work spaces that will accommodate these needs.

Long Island Sound—

travel time from Long Island to Westchester could be decreased by more than an hour with the construction of the crossing. The proposed crossing would provide a portal into both Westchester and Fairfield counties at the intersection of Interstates 95 and 287. Either a bridge, tunnel or combination of the two connecting Long Island to Rye or Port Chester would cost between $8.5 billion to $55 billion. A $25 toll, the study found, could generate an estimated $556 million in annual revenue. The study also included options linking mid-Long Island to either Bridgeport or Devon in Connecticut, though the request for expressions of interest focused solely on a connection to Westchester. The Connecticut connection would cost anywhere from $13 billion to $31 billion, depending on which structure — bridge, tunnel or a combination of both — developers chose to build. The study also found that a public-private partnership would be the most practical option to complete the construction project. “This project has the potential to be transformative for the region,” said state Department of Transportation Acting Commissioner Paul A. Karas.

for its Henry Farms Realty Subdivision in 2000. The developer planned for 115 residential lots on the 134acre site, including 65 single- family homes and 50 townhouses. In 2015, the planning board approved the project. Opposition to the development had begun in 2013, when local residents formed United Monroe, whose stated goal was to replace town board members in the November 2015 general election. United’s campaign slogan was “take back our town board,” and frequent references were made to the “Kiryas Joel power elite” and to the Hasidic Jewish community.

“Now that our study is complete, we will conduct additional engineering, environmental and financial analysis on the project, while assessing impacts on local communities.”

The plans have been met with a mixture of enthusiasm and apprehension from area leaders and residents. “In concept, it would be a fantastic addition to the tristate area in terms of accessibility,” said John Ravitz, executive vice president of the Business Council of Westchester. “The practicality of implementing such a huge project like that is another story.” “The devils are in the details,” he added. Ravitz said the Business Council has made improving local infrastructure one of the group’s legislative goals for the coming year, an issue they believe should be addressed before a tunnel project. “When you look around Westchester, there is enormous amount of work that should be done on local roads and bridges,” Ravitz said. “So if we’re going to prioritize, that’s the place to start.” In response to the plan, Westchester County legislators James Maisano, Catherine Parker and Nancy Barr, who represent districts on the Sound Shore, said they “remain open-mind-

ed” about the proposal. However, they noted that they are opposed to the state’s request for expressions of interest, which they believe is based “only on its own study, without any input at all from Westchester’s elected officials, municipalities, community and environmental groups and residents.” “There needs to be much more review and due diligence conducted by all interested and affected parties before New York state starts reviewing any bids to build this tunnel,” the Republican and Democratic legislators said in a joint statement. “We will push for more transparency and an open and objective review process.” Amy J. Allen, vice president of the Westchester County Association, said that high-quality infrastructure and accessibility are key drivers of economic growth for any region. “The proposed tunnel is an ambitious project that could potentially attract new talent and investment, boost tourism and improve quality-of-life,” she said. “However, it is critical that we first weigh the financial and environmental feasibility of such an undertaking.” Proposals for a structure that would create a connection across the Long Island Sound have been floated for decades. Some of the earliest plans date to the 1930s.

In 1957, the Oyster Bay-Rye Bridge Study represented the first technical analysis of such a crossing. More recently, private developer Polimeni International in 2008 proposed to construct a 16-mile tunnel under Long Island Sound that would connect Bayville on Long Island with Rye. The private-public partnership was estimated to cost between $12 billion and $16 billion. The sound project again gained steam after Gov. A

Cuomo touted the idea in his State of the State speech last month. “We should continue to pursue a tunnel from Long Island to Westchester or Connecticut,” he said. “DOT has determined it’s feasible, it would be under water, it would be invisible, it would reduce traffic on the impossibly congested Long Island Expressway and would offer significant potential private investment.” The project will likely be the subject of years of

studies before construction could begin. A five-year environmental process would include two years for scoping, two years for a draft environmental impact statement and one year for a final impact statement and decision, with design and construction phases following thereafter. The design could take up to three years to finalize and construction could last around eight years, according to the state’s consultant WPS.

Kiryas Joel is a village within Monroe that was founded in the late 1970s by Yiddish-speaking Jews who belong to the Satmar Hasidic sect. The village grew rapidly and now comprises more than half of Monroe’s population of about 44,000 people. United Monroe couched objections to the development in terms of too much population density and quality of life issues. But the Highview lawsuit depicts the objections as thinly veiled anti-Semitism. A 2016 post on the opposition group’s Facebook page said that Kiryas Joel’s population growth cannot go on indefinitely, the lawsuit says, and calculated an alarming population figure.

Assuming that each family has an average of 12 children, and each child marries at 18, “in five generations we are talking about half a billion people. Think about that — where are they going to go?” United Monroe candidates Cardone and Michael McGinn won election in 2015. A few months after they took office, the town board adopted a threemonth moratorium on issuing permits for residential developments while they studied its master plan and zoning laws. No emergency or crisis was cited as justification for the action, the complaint says. The moratorium was extended six times, in effect stopping residential devel-

opment. Highview asked for an exemption or variance but was denied. The town board also revised its zoning to allow small “accessory apartments” only for homes that have been owner-occupied for more than 10 years, a rule that Highview says tends to exclude Hasidic Jews. Last November, 18 months after the moratorium was adopted, the town approved new zoning that reduces the allowable housing in Highview’s project by 77 percent, from 115 units to 27. The zoning, Highview says, “eviscerates” the project. The developer says it has sunk more than $1.9 million in acquisition and

approval costs and more than $500,000 in real estate taxes and insurance. Highview accuses the town and town officials of violating the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, as well as the state constitution, by denying due process. It charges them with exclusionary zoning and violation of the Fair Housing Act. It claims that the zoning laws amount to an “unconstitutional regulatory taking.” The lawsuit also names as defendants town board members Mary Bingham, Richard Colon, Gerard McQuade Jr. and planning board chairwoman Audra Schwartz. The developer is asking the court to void the

moratorium and new zoning laws and to order the town to allow the project to go forward. Doles, the former town supervisor, said that when he was a town official he had concerns about certain elements of the Henry Farms project and he voiced objections. But developers have rights, he said. “I am looking forward to cooperating with federal court and to providing any documents or recordings or any types of communications which will shed light on what I consider was a pattern of discrimination against a group of people who invested their money,” Doles said. “They were put through hell.”

“Steve Cid is a major player in the New York City commercial real estate market and we’re thrilled to have him join our busy team,” said Thomas LaPerch, director of the Houlihan Lawrence Commercial Group. “He brings to our team a rich background in residential real estate, a national reputation and an ability to bring major off-market properties to the many investors he represents.” A Westchester County resident, Cid with his wife, residential real estate broker Kerry Fedigan-Cid, in 2010 co-founded Giving House, a real estate-based philanthropic initiative that donates a percentage of participating agents’ commissions to nonprofit organizations and institutions in Westchester, the Hudson Valley and New York City.

TRION BUYS WHITE PLAINS RETAIL BUILDING FOR $5.15M

A single-story retail building at the southeast end of White Plains' stretch of Mamaroneck Avenue has changed hands for $5.15 million. Trion Holdings LLC bought the 9,050-square-foot 500 Mamaroneck Ave. retail center, according to an announcement from the commercial real estate agency RKF, which arranged the deal. RKF represented the seller, Manhattan real estate investment firm Tahl Propp Equities. Trion Holdings specializes in acquiring multifamily properties in the New York City metropolitan region. Trion has offices in Yonkers and Manhattan. Carmelo Milio, president and director of property management for Trion, said the location was the main draw for the company to 500 Mamaroneck Ave. "We're from Westchester, and located in Westchester, and we feel that Mamaroneck Avenue and White Plains is a very strong market," Milio said. While much of Trion's portfolio focuses in residential properties, Milio said the firm has a solid background in retail through its mixeduse properties. He cited the building's tenant base as attractive to the company, which is anchored by a Bank of America branch. The building, which has wraparound frontage onto Shapham Place, is also leased to Hilda Demirjian Laser and Skin Care Center and the bar Dunne’s Pub. And while Milio said nothing specific is being explored yet, the site is set up for other uses the company could explore in the future. The sale was arranged by RKF Vice President Brian Segall and Associate George Martinecz. Segall said in the announcement that White Plains "will continue to see strong population growth, which points to an ongoing shift in retail. New suburban residents and young families are driving the demand for more service-oriented retailers in the area. 500 Mamaroneck Ave. is a terrific investment opportunity as it offers tremendous value and a highly desirable opportunity for future retail development.”

Inventors’ helpers have patent on fraud, women claim BY BILL HELTZEL bheltzel@westfairinc.com

Y

ou’ve probably seen the cartoon caveman about to chisel a stone wheel on InventHelp’s late night TV advertisements. Julie Zanotti of Putnam Valley and Ronese Brooks of Yonkers saw the ads and were inspired to submit their invention ideas. But now the would-be inventors say it was they who were chiseled. They claim that InventHelp bilked them and many others into paying millions of dollars for invention promotion services that were not provided. They are demanding $36 million in damages in a class-action lawsuit filed on Jan. 25 in state Supreme Court in Westchester. They are being represented by Julie Pecherski Plitt of Oxman Law Group in White Plains. InventHelp did not respond to a request for comment. The Pittsburgh company’s website promotes itself as the “honest invention company.” “Our approach is straightforward and does not mislead or misinform,” the company states. “This is what separates us from unscrupulous, double-talking organizations who profess to ‘help’ inventors.” The women describe themselves as naïve, aspiring inventors who were lured by slick TV and internet advertisements, assured that their ideas were unique, told that their inventions were potentially lucrative and offered the means to making their ideas real. They claim they were strung along by a series of seemingly independent entities that were actually acting in concert, including promotion companies, a money lender, patent attorneys, licensing companies, manufacturers and distribution companies. The web of companies “created the impression

that they have successfully helped other inventors and thus that they are reliable and reputable,” the complaint states. “In truth and in fact, defendants fail to fulfill almost every promise they make to consumers.” Zanotti, a hair stylist, came up with an idea she called the Liqui Comb, where a styling solution could be put in a hollow chamber and distributed evenly on hair through the comb’s teeth. She saw the caveman spots on TV in 2014, called InventHelp and was referred to the Invents Co. affiliate in Iselin, New Jersey. She claims she was told that her idea was novel and had an excellent opportunity for profit and that Invents would partner with her for $7,950. When she said she could not afford the fee, she was referred to Innovation Credit Corp. in Manhattan. She claims Invents told her she could get an interest-free loan, but the loan she got carried an annual interest rate of 18 percent. Zanotti alleges that Invents agreed to “commercialize” her concept with press releases, a web page, infomercial, airtime in major markets and contacts with manufacturers; but the services were not provided. She was referred to a Florida attorney who charged $4,490 to obtain a patent. But her idea could not be patented, she said, because several companies already make and sell similar products. Then Invents told her that Zambro Manufacturing in Milwaukee was interested in the Liqui Comb. She signed a manufacturing and licensing agreement and agreed to a $2,000 down payment that was charged to her credit card by Global Express Manufacturing of Milwaukee. Zambro and Global, she alleges, are sham companies. Ronese Brooks tells a similar story about her concept of eyeglasses with detachable and adjustable arms.

She met with an Invents representative in the Manhattan office in 2016. She claims she was told that her idea was worth “billions.” The representative left the room to conduct a “feasibility study.” When he returned, he allegedly said her invention had scored 93 percent because it was unique, easy to produce and would realize huge profits. In all his years with Invents, he allegedly said, only one other product had received a feasibility score greater than 90 percent. Brooks said she was overjoyed. She paid $595 for an initial patent search and project summary and Invents, she said, told her there were no similar patents. Invents offered to do business with her for $10,000. She asked for time to review the agreement with an attorney, she claims, but the representative told her she would lose a $1,050 discount for doing so. She signed and paid $8,950 for promotion and marketing services. She claims the work was not done. Then she was referred to an Arizona patent consulting company. But her invention was not patentable, she discovered, because similar products were already on the market. For months, Brooks said, Invents did not respond to her phone calls. Then Global Express offered to manufacture her invention for $5,000. Brooks had become suspicious and declined the offer. In all, she paid $12,000 for services that she claims were not provided. InventHelp claims to be the largest invention submission company in the country and perhaps in the world. It is part of the Invention Submission Corp. and shares the same address in Pittsburgh with Technosystems Service Corp. Technosystems Consolidated Corp. and Western Invention Submission Corp. Robert J. Susa is president of the companies. The lawsuit also names Invents, Innovation Credit, three purported manufacturing companies and two patent attorney firms. The women accuse the defendants of fraud, » INVENTHELP

Driving traffic to your content: 3 game-changing strategies

E

ffective content brands rely on both content creation and content marketing to fuel expansion. While most content creators get the creation part right, few engage in content marketing. Many people who love creating content often see the marketing as something that gets in the way. There are countless ways to market your content. I could create an exhaustive list of 1,000 ways to do so. Promoting on social media is a topic that receives heavy discussion in tutorials on driving traffic to your content. For that reason,

I’ll exclude it to show you additional possibilities for driving traffic to your content. Many strategies work, but these are the game changers.

1: BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

The relationships you make and your ability to leverage those relationships play a significant role in the success of your content brand. Some influencers are happy to share other people’s content and with a strong relationship, more of these types of influencers will share your content. Relationships can also result in anything from more podcast interviews to a new

speaking gig, but relationships at their core help with publicity and knowledge. For almost any area of content marketing, there are at least five people I can contact if I have a question and need an answer. Build your network to do the same. Strive to build at least three new relationships every day. That will result in over 1,000 new relationships by the end of the year. One of the best ways to build relationships is to host your own podcast and invite people as guests on your show. You put the guest in front of a new audience, provide your audience with new content and strengthen your new relationship with a 30-minute interview (it may be more or less depending on the typical episode length for your podcast). As you continue to build relationships, also take the time to strengthen existing relationships. Catch up with people you first talked with a few months or years ago. People in the network-building tactic are typically good

at outreach, but we also need to get good at reaching inward where our existing connections reside.

2: FOCUS ON GROWING YOUR EMAIL LIST

Your email list is your content brand’s most valuable digital asset. Every initiative you take to grow your audience must point back to web pages that increase your email list. On Twitter, I promote tweets that lead to my blog posts, but some of those tweets also lead people to my landing pages. For my Breakthrough Success podcast, I use a CTA — call to action -- that entices people to receive a free offer and join my email list. If you have a traffic generation strategy that is resulting in more visitors but no change in email subscribers, you need to reassess that strategy and figure out what isn’t working. If you get 1,000 visitors this month, but none of those visitors subscribe to your email list, there’s a chance that those people don’t come back. Each time you email

people on your list, you remind them of who you are and the value you provide. Without those constant reminders, some people who once visited your blog but never subscribed may forget who you are.

3: COLLABORATE WITH YOUR AUDIENCE

Of all three strategies, this is the least discussed and most underrated. Some people in your audience have been with you since Day 1. Other people may be newer to the fold, but as you grow your audience, you’ll have more core fans within that audience. These are the people who want to get involved in what you’re doing. They have consumed your content and even bought some of your products. If you have an initiative and invite people to take part, these people are the first ones to sign up. For next month, plan an initiative in which you collaborate with your audience. When I hosted the Content Marketing Success Summit and invited people in my audience to apply to be a speaker, I

got dozens of responses. Many of those interviews were very memorable and those same people came to bat in a big way when it came time to promote the summit. Get your audience involved in your initiatives. Some will be happy to support you in any way possible and you’ll develop a stronger relationship between you and your audience. These three game-changing strategies will steer more traffic toward your content. The only strategies that matter are the results-oriented strategies that you plan for and implement soon after. Focus on implementing at least one of these strategies this week. If you already implement one of these strategies, choose another. Those who take the most planned action tend to be the most successful in any niche they pursue. Marc Guberti is a student at Fordham University and a social media and business blogger and author.

MANY LEADERS

could positively transform their organizations if they developed power- ful presentation and communication skills. According to executive presentation skills expert Gilda Bonanno, it’s not enough to know your topic or subject well, you also need to know how to communicate it effec- tively to others. Gilda Bonanno owns a Stamford, Connecticut-based business, which helps you transform your communication, presentation and leadership skills so you can have more confidence, influence and success. Since 2006, she has worked with leading organizations, including GE, Travelers, Praxair, Assa Abloy, Wells Far- go and Yale University, on four continents from Chicago to Shanghai and Rio to Rome.

“Whether you are giving a sales presenta- tion to potential customers, running a team meeting or representing your company at industry events,” Bonanno advises, “you have to know what you’re talking about and be able to communicate it clearly, concisely and with confidence.” According to Bonanno, if you ramble on, with no focus or clear message and your language is full of pause words like “um” and “ah,” your audience (whether of one or 100) can perceive your poor communication skills as indicative of a lack of preparation, experience and knowledge. And you will miss the business or career opportunity. “We all need coaches,” says Bonanno. “The good news is that all of these issues are fixable because presentation skills can be learned, practiced and improved. And work- ing with an experienced, knowledgeable coach accelerates your progress. It’s the best investment you can make.” In addition to in-person executive presenta- tion skills coaching and training, Bonanno also offers help virtually, through her You- Tube channel, where her instructional vid- eos have been viewed more than 1 million times and her newsletter which reaches subscribers in over 45 countries.

City officials OK White Plains Hospital’s off-site expansion BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

W

hite Plains Hospital will renovate a four-story building near its cancer care center on East Post Road as a new home for some its professional offices. The hospital received approvals from the White Plains Common Council at its Feb. 5 meeting that allows it to renovate the 16,000-square-foot brick building at 79 E. Post Road purchased by the hospital in 2016 and move some professional offices there, including its family health center and outpatient behavioral health programs. A hospital spokesperson said between 15 and 20 employees will be moved to the facility from the two programs. White Plains Hospital

attorney William Null, of Cuddy & Feder, told the Common Council that moving the professional staff to the off-site location will allow the hospital to “continue the modernization of its campus” by providing flexibility at its main hospital building at 41 E. Post Road. The brick building to be renovated was constructed in 1989. White Plains Hospital purchased it in 2016 for $5.5 million, according to county property records. The seller was Longview Medical Center Associates, a company affiliated with The Cappelli Organization. The Cappelli Organization developed the building initially as private medical offices, but it was later used as an outpatient center run by the state Department of Mental Health. While White Plains Hospital will not expand or significantly modify the exist-

ing structure, Null detailed a number of changes the hospital plans to modernize the office space. The building's East Post Road entrance will be relocated to create a new lobby and ensure the building is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The new entrance and lobby will replace an existing driveway. An internal atrium on the building’s second and third floors will be closed off for additional office space. The two changes will add about 2,250 square feet of space to the building. The hospital also plans to add a second elevator. The most notable changes will be to the exterior of the building. Null said the hospital wanted to change the aesthetic of the building to match the rest of East Post Road. Plans call for removing the brick on the first floor of the build-

ing and replacing it with granite-based paneling. The brick on the upper levels will be treated and stained to match the lower level. Plans also call for a new set of rectangular windows. The renovation plan was designed by the New York City firm Array Architects. The total cost for the project was not available, but part of it will be funded through a $7.5 million state grant through the Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program that the hospital received last year.

The building, at the corner of East Post and Longview Road, is across the street from White Plains Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care, which the hospital opened in 2016 as part of a $60 million expansion of its cancer treatment facilities. Next door to the property is the city’s Longview Cromwell parking garage. “We believe that it is important that the improvement of East Post Road continue and we believe the aesthetic of this building, and the use of this building as part of a hospital program, is consis-

tent with that mission,” Null told the council. Council members apparently agreed, voting unanimously in favor of the amended site plan and special permit approvals required for the building renovations. Mayor Thomas Roach said the project represents “a real positive for the city from our most important community partner in White Plains Hospital.” The renovations are expected to take from 10 months to a year, with employees moving into the building in 2019.

InventHelp—

breach of contract, false advertising, violation of consumer protection laws, dealing in bad faith, unjust enrichment and conspiracy. The patent attorney and patent consultant are accused of breach of fiduciary duty. Invention firms are required by federal law to disclose their success rates. From 2015 to 2017, InventHelp states on its website, 6,564 clients have signed agreements, 166 have received license agreements and 49 clients, or 0.7 percent, have received more money than they paid the company for services. It makes no promises, implies no likelihood of success, is upfront about fees, and does not evaluate inventions, its website states. The invention game is a “high-risk endeavor,” InventHelp says, and “very few inventions make money.” “Unfortunately,” the company says, “there are a number of fraudulent service providers who will tell you otherwise.”

Taste NY sales top $16M in 2017

T

aste NY, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s 5-year-old marketing initiative promoting the state’s food and beverage producers and their products, grossed $16.1 million in revenue in 2017, topping the previous year’s sales by $3 million, the governor announced Jan. 29. Created in 2013 and administered by the state Department of Agriculture and Markets, the program grew from sales of $1.5 million in 2014 to $4.5 million in 2015 and $13.1 million in 2016. Cuomo’s office said the market exposure from Taste NY stores, cafés, bars, concessions and events has helped participating farms and companies reach more customers, increase online sales, and, in many cases, expand the processing capacity of their businesses. "Taste NY has put local products on the map, boosting tourism, helping local

craft breweries, wineries, distilleries and cideries grow, and increasing opportunities for producers in every corner of this great state," Cuomo said in the announcement. “By connecting consumers across the globe with fresh, locally grown products, Taste NY continues to support the growth of farms and small businesses across New York." Taste NY in 2017 added 13 locations where New York-grown and New Yorksourced products are sold, including new concessions for visitors to an additional six state parks. This year, the Department of Agriculture and Markets is expected to identify 10 core food and beverage categories that will be highlighted in New York's regional Welcome Centers to further strengthen Taste NY branding and tell the stories behind New York's

businesses, according to the governor’s office. The department will also coordinate with other state agencies on possible new Taste NY locations as infrastructure projects are developed across the state, including the reconstruction of train stations and airports. Ag and Markets officials also will host five regional Business-to-Business Taste NY Networking events to connect state’s farms, food and beverage businesses with buyers from institutions, retail locations, restaurants, bars and distributors. The Taste NY website at tasteny.gov will also be transformed to operate as a onestop resource for residents, visitors and businesses, state officials said. The website's presentation, functionality and resources will be improved to provide better information on agritourism destinations and to better connect New York producers to new markets. In this region, Taste NY operates the Taste NY

BIOTECH Special Report

Touro biotech incubator recruits Israeli startups for U.S. move BY RYAN DEFFENBAUGH rdeffenbaugh@westfairinc.com

I

n the corner of Deborah Novick's new office on the New York Medical College campus in Valhalla is a big wooden crate, unopened. She explains it’s a new microplate reader, a piece of lab equipment designed to test the biological and chemical characteristics of samples in lab experiments. Novick has a business background, but, as she notes, she is now surrounded by scientists. She took over Jan. 1 as executive director of BioInc@NYMC, the biotech business incubator on the New York Medical College campus. When scientists and researchers from the startups that call the 6,500-square-foot incubator home come asking for things such as an additional microplate reader, Novick's job is to deliver. But, more than that, it's also to help guide the mostly young companies through the business of launching a biotech firm. “What I like to say is, I’m going to help them answer the questions they know they have, and find the questions they don’t even know they should be asking,” Novick said. A Larchmont resident, Novick started her career at a boutique firm on Wall Street that advises startups and entrepreneurs. She later ran her own real estate staging business before going back to advising new businesses. She has also taught classes for the Women’s Enterprise Development Center in

Yonkers and White Plains. A month into the job at the biotech incubator, she said she’s still getting to know the resident companies to better work with them on whatever business needs they have, such as marketing, legal help and accounting. She described the job as a chance to take her experience helping entrepreneurs around the country and apply it locally. New York Medical College, which is part of the metropolitan region’s Touro College and University System, launched the BioInc@NYMC incubator in 2014 with a mix of county, state and federal funds. The incubator received $1.25 million from the state last year through its designation as a biotech Innovation Hot Spot. The incubator is home to eight startups, which use its lab equipment, administrative space and professional services to both research their products and start developing the business end of their companies. Last year, the incubator booked a prominent anchor tenant when the Dutch technology conglomerate Royal Philips signed on for office space there for 13 researchers in its genomics program. Novick will help oversee a new international phase for the incubator. Touro and New York Medical College recently launched the TruMada initiative, which will offer space in the incubator and access to its services for Israeli biotech startups. The initiative will target companies that are past the incubation phase, but need a landing space to

bring their products or research to the U.S. “Israeli biotech companies have a problem," said David Raab, executive vice president of the Touro College and University System. "They’re really smart on the technology, really smart on the science, but they have a very hard time coming across the ocean — understanding the U.S. market, doing clinical tests here, getting FDA approval and figuring out how to market and distrib-

ute their product." Raab described Israel as “the startup nation” because of the advanced state of its general technology and biotechnology sectors. But in the U.S. market, “These companies can’t make it here and so they sell out early, they sell out very young, either to a pharmaceutical company or to a medical equipment company,” he said. Through TruMada, Raab said the incubator would "offer a portfolio of services to clients" trying to expand in the U.S. market. That includes offering space and services in the incubator, along with access to capital. Touro has created a group of potential investors for the initiative called the TruMada Investor Club and has formed a limited liability company, TruMada Management Co., to facilitate and administer investments. In January, the investor group met for the first of what Raab described as a “Shark Tank” pitching event for three interested Israeli companies. Similar events will be held quarterly as part of the initiative.

The companies in the incubator could utilize either laboratory or office space, similar to BioInc's current roster of clients. “Each company is going to have different needs, whether from Israel or the U.S.,” Novick said. “And we’ll be supporting them and finding the resources that they need regardless. But it will be great to be able to attract those extra scientific breakthroughs to our campus.” To accommodate that initiative and more American startup tenants, Raab said the medical college will soon look to expand the incubator to about 15,000 square feet of space from its current 6,500 square feet, BioInc@NYMC is housed in a 120,000-square-foot building at 7 Dana Road. Next door to the incubator in the building is the college’s 21,000-square-foot Clinical Skills and Disaster Medicine Training Center. As the incubator grows, one question its administrators must answer is how to officially graduate companies when they've passed the

stage where a presence in the incubator is necessary, Novick said. While she said there are no companies headed for the door just yet, “We do have to know what is the right moment for a company to graduate.” Touro and BioInc@ NYMC launched the TruMada initiative last fall. Raab said they’ve since had four companies from Israel tour the site. Raab and Novick will also travel to Israel soon to promote the initiative. The goal is to have at least one company make the overseas transition to BioInc@NYMC space sometime this year. “This is an idea that’s kind of been gestating for three years,” Raab said. “We know there’s the need... and we know we can offer exactly what they want, and now we’re getting started.” As for the TruMada initiative’s name, Raab explained it’s a combination of two Hebrew words. “From Hebrew, ‘truma’ is a contribution, and ‘mada’ is science," Raab said. A shortened combination of the words makes "a contribution to science.”

Ossining student is a Regeneron science competition finalist BY ALEESIA FORNI aforni@westfairinc.com

A

n Ossining high school senior is one of 40 students nationwide who were selected as finalists in the Regeneron Science Talent Search. In January, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Society for Science and the Public announced the finalists of the science competition, the nation's oldest science and math talent search for high school seniors. Skyler Jones, a senior at Ossining High School, was selected for her project titled “Large Polaron Formation as a Charge Carrier Protection Mechanism in MAPbBr3 and CsPbBr3 Perovskite Crystals.” Jones and other finalists will be in Washington, D.C. from March 8 to 14, where they will undergo a rigorous judging process and compete for more than $1.8 million in awards. Finalists are each awarded

at least $25,000 and the top 10 awards, which will be announced at an awards ceremony at the National Building Museum on March 13, range from $40,000 to $250,000. They will also have the opportunity to interact with leading scientists, meet with members of Congress and display their projects to the public at the National Museum of Women in the Arts on March 11. Finalists are from 31 schools in 15 states and were selected based on the originality and creativity of their scientific research, as well as their achievement and leadership both inside and outside the classroom. The competition is the result of a partnership between Tarrytown-based Regeneron and Society for Science and the Public, a nonprofit in Washington, D.C. that has produced and organized the Science Talent Search since its founding in 1942.

REGENERON DERMATITIS DRUG APPROVED FOR JAPAN MARKET

Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. in Westchester has received approval to market and manufacture its antibody drug Dupixent in Japan for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in adults not adequately controlled with existing therapies. Dupixent is the brand name for dupilumab, a human monoclonal antibody jointly developed by Regeneron, the state’s largest biotechnology employer, and the French pharmaceutical company Sanofi under a global collaboration agreement. It will be commercialized in Japan by Sanofi, Regeneron said in its Monday announcement. A form of eczema, atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory disease with symptoms often appearing as a rash on the skin. Moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis is characterized by rashes sometimes covering much of the body and can include intense, persistent itching

and skin dryness, cracking, redness, crusting and oozing. Itch is one of the most burdensome symptoms for patients and can be debilitating. Regeneron officials said Dupixent specifically targets and inhibits signaling of two key proteins believed to be important contributors of the persistent underlying inflammation in atopic dermatitis and certain other allergic or atopic diseases. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration last March approved the drug for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis whose disease is not adequately controlled with topical prescription therapies or when those therapies are not advisable. The FDA approval was followed in September by the European Commission’s marketing authorization for Dupixent for use in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis who are candidates for systemic therapy. — John Golden

5 Ways Your Employees Will Invite Hackers Into Your Network

Whether they’re criminals or heroes, hackers in the movies are always portrayed as a glamorous group. When it comes down to the wire, these are the individuals who crack into the ominous megacorporation or hostile foreign government database, hitting the right key just in the nick of time. They either save the day or bring down regimes, empty the digital vault of the Federal Reserve or disable all the power plants in the country. It’s always a genius up against an impenetrable fortress of digital security, but no matter what, they always come out on top. In real life, it’s rarely that difficult. Sure, if you look at the news, you might believe hackers are close to their Hollywood counterparts, stealing data from the NSA and nabbing millions of customer records from Equifax. But the majority of hacks aren’t against the big dogs; they’re against small to mid-sized businesses. And usually, this doesn’t involve actually hacking into anything. A lot of the time – approximately 60% according to the Harvard Business Review – an unwitting employee accidentally leaves the digital front door open. The biggest threats to your company aren’t teams of roaming hackers; they’re your employees. Here’s why. 1. They’ll slip up because they don’t know any better. With the proliferation of technology has come an exponential rise in digital threats of such variety and complexity that it’d be impossible for the average person to keep track of it all. Each of your employees’ lives are a labyrinth of passwords, interconnected online accounts

Talent Search finalists are tomorrow's scientific leaders, and their projects address some of the most urgent challenges we face as a society. Our world has no greater or more important resource than these bright young minds," said Dr. George D. Yancopoulos, president and chief scientific officer of Regeneron. "I have deep respect and appreciation for each student who conducted extensive scientific research and completed a Regeneron Science Talent Search application." The competition holds a special significance for Yancopoulos and Dr. Leonard S. Schleifer, Regeneron’s CEO who founded the company in 1988. Both are alumni of the Science Talent Search, selected when they were in high school in the 1970s. Regeneron took over the title sponsorship role of the talent search from Intel Corp., which sponsored the competition for 18 years. Prior to

that, Westinghouse Electric Corp. was lead sponsor of the Science Talent Search from its inception in 1942. Regeneron, New York state’s largest and fastest-growing biopharmaceutical employer, is backing its commitment to the competition with $100 million in funding over 10 years. "This year's Regeneron Science Talent Search finalists are some of the best and brightest young scientists and mathematicians in our country," said Maya Ajmera, president and CEO of Society for Science & the Public and publisher of Science News. To enter the talent search, students must complete an original research project and extensive application process. Finalists were selected from 300 scholars and more than 1,800 entrants. Their projects cover a variety of disciplines, including behavioral and social sciences, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and plant and space sciences.

and precious data. If their vigilance slacks at any point, it not only leaves them vulnerable, but it leaves your company vulnerable as well. For this reason, most cyber-attacks come down to a lack of cyber security education. 2 They’ll let you get hacked on purpose. It’s a sad fact that a huge portion of digital attacks are the result of company insiders exposing data to malicious groups. Whether it’s info vital for your competitive advantage, passwords they can sell to hacker networks to make a quick buck or sensitive data they can make public simply to spite your organization, it’s difficult to protect against a double agent. 3 They’ll trust the wrong person. For many hacks, little code is needed whatsoever.

Instead, hackers are notorious for posing as a trusted member of your own team. And if you believe that you’d be able to spot an impostor from a mile away, you may want to think again. Not only is it easier than ever to crack individual users’ e-mail passwords and login credentials, personal info is now littered throughout social media. A simple visit to Facebook can give a hacker all they need to know to “social hack” their way into the heart of your business. 4 They’ll miss red flags while surfing the web. Clickbait is more than a nuisance plaguing your social media feeds. It can be a powerful tool for hackers trolling for easy prey. If an employee doesn’t understand what exactly makes a site or link look dubious, they may open themselves – and your company – to browser exploits or other types of attacks. 5 They’re terrible at passwords. According to Entreprenuer.com, “3 out of 4 consumers use duplicate passwords, many of which have not been changed in five years or more.” Even more of those passwords are simply weak, inviting easy access for unsavory elements. Many people brush off the importance of strong passwords, but the risks posed by the password “123456” or “password” cannot be overstated. When it comes to defending your precious assets against digital threats, it can seem impossible to protect yourself at every turn. But there is one way you can make a concrete change that will tighten

up your security more than you realize: educating your people. Through a comprehensive security training program, including specific examples of methods hackers use – particularly phishing – you can drastically minimize the risk of an employee accidentally opening up a malicious e-mail or posting sensitive info. When you make a concerted effort to make the entire organization vigilant against cyberattacks, you’re much less likely to be targeted.

ARTSWESTCHESTER TO HONOR 9 ArtsWestchester has named nine individuals and organizations to be honored at its annual Arts Awards Luncheon to be held April 11 at the Westchester Country Club in Rye. “The Arts Award has been presented since 1976 to recognize individuals and organizations whose vision, commitment and leadership have enriched the cultural life of Westchester, its communities and its citizens,” ArtsWestchester CEO Janet Langsam said. The President’s Award will go to Tarrytown’s The Pocantico Center, which is managed by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The center offers a wide variety of cultural events such as dance, music concerts and readings. LaRuth Gray, a former president of the ArtsWestchester Board of Trustees, will receive the Leadership Award. Deborah and Alan Simon are to be presented with the Emily and Eugene Grant Arts Patron Award. They have been active with many arts and cultural groups and Deborah Simon is a founding member of Friends of ArtsWestchester and secretary of the ArtsWestchester’s board. The Artist Award will go to Will Crutchfield, who is familiar to opera lovers and concertgoers. In addition to conducting, playing and producing, in the mid-1980s he became the youngest music critic in the history of The New York Times. The Performing Arts Center at Purchase College, now celebrating its 40th season, will receive the Cultural Organization Award. The Sophia Abeles Education Award will go to The Play Group Theatre, a nonprofit located in White Plains. Recipients of Community Awards will be Lifetime Arts, an arts advocate and service organization, and Leandra Pope founder of The Schoolhouse Theater and Arts Center, which came into being when she transformed an old elementary school building in Croton Falls into a visual arts center in 1983. The first Larry Salley Photography Award will go to Peekskill photographer Ocean Morisset. More information and tickets for the event through artswestchester.org.

HUDSON GATEWAY, L.I. REALTORS CLOSER TO MLS MERGER

The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors and the Long Island Board of Realtors have agreed on a framework that would form a new multiple listing service to serve the New York metropolitan area. That area would include Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties, as well as the Bronx, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk counties. The regional listing service would consist of approximately 36,000 Realtors. The framework follows a meeting last June when officials from Hudson Gateway and the Long Island Board of Realtors met to discuss the possibility of forming the regional multiple listing service. "A primary objective is to create a seamless flow of data for brokers and agents within the New York metro area," said Richard Haggerty, CEO of Hudson Gateway. Final approvals from the boards of directors of both groups could be attained within the next six months. "The new MLS would improve services resulting in operational efficiencies, increase economies of scale and enhance technology that will enable members to better serve the buying and selling public," said Joseph Mottola, CEO of the Long Island Board of Realtors. Hudson Gateway is an 11,000-member nonprofit trade association for Realtors doing business in Westchester, Putnam, Rockland and Orange counties, as well as the Bronx and Manhattan. The Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service is owned by Hudson Gateway. The Long Island Board of Realtors consists of 25,000 real estate professionals working in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Brooklyn.

MALLEN NAMED PRESIDENT/CEO AT AMALGAMATED LIFE

Amalgamated Life Insurance Co. in White Plains has announced that Paul Mallen will take over as its CEO and president. Mallen, previously the company's executive vice president and CFO, succeeds David J. Walsh, who will retire after holding the dual titles of president and CEO for a decade. Founded in 1943 by labor organizer Sidney Hillman, Amalgamated Life provides a range of insurance products, including life insurance coverage, accidental death, medical stop loss and disability. It is the flagship company of the Amalgamated Family of Cos. Mallen joined the company in 2005 and has served for 12 years as CFO. Walsh, who will turn 69 this year, said in the company announcement that the leadership transition has been in development for 18 months. "With the help of a great management team and the backing of our board, I can look back at my 10-year tenure with Amalgamated and see that we've accomplished a great deal," Walsh said. It was early in Walsh's tenure that the company landed at its current headquarters in White Plains. After considering locations in Newark and lower Manhattan, the company moved north from Manhattan and signed a 16-year lease in 2008 for 132,000 square feet at 333 Westchester Ave. The 500,000-square-foot building is the former General Foods headquarters building, now owned by the Cohen Brothers Realty Corp. In retirement, Walsh plans to finish his Ph.D. and teach at the university level. He also will continue teaching scuba diving and emergency first response courses, according to the company announcement. Before joining Amalgamated, Mallen held senior positions with consulting and financial services firms, including FTI Consulting and

Deloitte LLP. Walsh said in a statement that Mallen "has proven himself as a focused and competent leader with vision, technical expertise and superior values and character. He is ready to lead the company and I am confident he will do an excellent job."

LIM GETS NEW POSTS AT WMC CANCER INSTITUTE

Dr. Seah Lim has been appointed medical director of hematology and associate chief of the division of hematology and hemostasis in the department of medicine at Westchester Medical Center’s Cancer Institute in Valhalla. In his new role, Lim, a Great Neck resident, will oversee hematology services at the cancer institute and will also serve as associate program director of the hospital’s hematology/oncology fellowship program, Westchester Medical Center officials recently announced. Board certified in hematology and internal medicine, Lim most recently served as director of hematology at Rhode Island Hospital and professor of medicine at Brown University’s Warren Alpert Medical School. He has also held appointments in Pittsburgh; Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Amarillo, Texas, where he helped to create a nonprofit founda-

tion to provide support for cancer patients who faced challenges accessing care. The new hematology director’s particular medical interests include hematologic malignancies, stem cell transplantation and sickle cell disease. Hospital officials said Lim was drawn to his field by a passion for helping others and in his practice emphasizes the importance not only of caring for the patient medically, but also understanding the emotional and financial strains a diagnosis can place on patients and their families. Lim earned his medical and undergraduate degrees from the Aberdeen University School of Medicine in the United Kingdom and a Ph.D. from the University of Wales College of Medicine. He completed fellowships at Queen Elizabeth Medical Centre in Birmingham, University College in London and Cambridge University, as well as a residency in internal medicine at Aberdeen Teaching Hospitals in Scotland.

BUTCHER NAMED EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AT COMMUNITY CARES

Community Cares, a Mahopac nonprofit, has named Faith Ann Butcher its executive director. Butcher has been an active volunteer with Community Cares for five years. She has also been on the board of directors for The

Greater Mahopac-Carmel Chamber of Commerce for the past seven years and is the organization’s chairperson. Professionally, Butcher has spent the past 15 years in media, communications and marketing. Working with its founder and president Amy Sayegh, Butcher will be enhancing the organization’s services to clients and strengthening its outreach program. The organization provides help in managing normal household tasks for families of school-age children who have a parent dealing with cancer or other major medical illnesses. “Taking things like laundry or cooking a meal off the to-do list of a family going through medical crisis may seem small, but it provides a sense of relief to the parents as well as the children,” Butcher said. “I know what it is like to grow up having a parent who is sick. My mother died of scleroderma when I was 15, and she was confined to a hospital bed in our living room for a few months prior to that. I have always been thankful for the kindness of others who helped my family during that time. Now, I can focus my efforts in helping families going through similar experiences.” The organization provides families with free meals, laundry service and house cleaning as well as a network of support to moms and dads faced with major medical illnesses while trying to raise children. Community Cares serves families in Putnam County, northern Westchester and southern Dutchess counties. “Community Cares has helped hundreds of people since its inception in 2007, and I am very proud of that,” Sayegh said. “Having Faith on the team will help Community Cares expand its reach and further its mission.”

PACE OFFERS 'OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP'

Pace University has announced a new scholarship for students from New York entering its Pforzheimer Honors College. The Opportunity Scholarship offers additional aid to stu-

WCBJ

dents under similar terms to a state program that offers free in-state tuition at public colleges. The donor-funded scholarship will offer up to $5,000 to students who are New York state residents and come from a family with a gross income of $125,000 or less. Those qualifications are similar to the terms of the Excelsior Scholarship, the state program championed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo that offers free in-state tuition at all SUNY and CUNY colleges for students from families making $125,000 or less. The scholarship provides qualifying students with additional funds to cover the cost of tuition left over after state and federal financial aid grants. The program was adopted in last year's state budget, despite the protests of private colleges that said it would create an uneven playing field. The new Opportunity Scholarship would be in addition to existing scholarships for honors students, the school said. Pace noted that 92 percent of all its students receive some form of financial aid. Pace is one of the relatively few private colleges participating in the state's new Enhanced Tuition Awards program, which provides up to $6,000 in aid to students from New York attending participating private colleges and universities. The program was created partly in response to the concerns private colleges had with the Excelsior Scholarship, but only about a third of the state's private institutions are participating. Pace expects that about 20 percent of students entering its honors college will be eligible for the Opportunity Scholarship. Students need to be enrolled in the Honors College at Pace in their freshman year to qualify and can renew the scholarship each year by remaining in good standing with a grade point average above 3.0. Pace enrolls about 13,000 students in bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs across campuses in Westchester County and lower Manhattan. — Aleesia Forni, John Golden and Ryan Deffenbaugh
