Overview

Many non-profits are squeezed out and priced out of Manhattan buildings – but not from ours. These organizations play a vital role in our city and so many communities.

It is the true meaning of a family company with good core values. They care about tenants that others might not necessarily care about. They want good tenants for a long time, and to improve the neighborhood.

Innocence Project

The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization that restores justice and freedom to people convicted of crimes they didn’t commit.

The organization was the first legal organization to systematically apply DNA testing as a powerful tool to reveal innocence in cases of wrongful conviction. Armed with the unequivocal proof of DNA technology, the Innocence Project has litigated hundreds of wrongful conviction cases. Those exoneration cases exposed widespread failure in the system’s capacity to protect innocent people and uphold justice.

Working with scientists, the Innocence Project has created and offered innovative and often science-based solutions to address the factors that contribute to wrongful convictions. The organization also led the passage of more than 100 laws around the country through trusted alliances with law enforcement, defense lawyers and policy makers. As a result of The Innocence Project’s efforts, the risk of being wrongfully convicted has been greatly reduced for hundreds of millions of Americans.
