Inspiring neighbor in Elizabeth.

Here’s an inspiring story from of our buildings in Elizabeth.

Angel Abreu was walking into his Elizabeth, New Jersey apartment building when he noticed smoke rising from a neighbor’s car while she was parking. He immediately told her to get out of the car, and the engine burst into flames just as she exited.   Angel ran into his building, grabbed a hall fire extinguisher, and returned to the blazing auto.  He attacked the fire and quickly put it out.  His quick thinking and heroic actions for a neighbor prevented injury to the driver and damage to any adjacent cars.

I hope everyone is managing well in the snow. Don’t forget to help a fellow neighbor in need!

Who is your neighbor?

Rabbi Joachim Prinz was born in Germany, expelled by the Nazis and found refuge in America as Rabbi of Congregation Bnai Abraham in Newark, NJ.  In August 1963, he joined Dr. King at the March on Washington.  In his speech just prior to Dr. King’s, this is what Rabbi Prinz said to the crowd: “In the realm of the spirit, our fathers taught us thousands of years ago that when God created man, he created him as everybody’s neighbor.  Neighbor is not a geographic concept.  It is a moral concept.  It means our collective responsibility for the preservation of man’s dignity and integrity.”

Hi everyone!

We recently hired one of our residents, and son of one of our staff members, who is currently in college for Video Production, to create our newest videos. Marvin, son of Carlos and Blanca Pineda in the Elizabeth buildings, is currently working to create the newest set of Rock Properties videos. Marvin is currently a Senior at Rutgers-Newark and has taken this project with full force – obtaining help from friends and colleagues to play the characters and edit the videos, renting lights, and using a professional camera. We love his current work and are excited to see what he does next.

Our Mission: Inspiring Our Neighbors

We provide rental housing for over 1,200 people, and our staff believes that housing is the most fundamental of needs. Almost all of our staff lives in our communities, and each morning we are there as residents embark on their day. We expect our residents to pass on to others the good service, good deeds, and acts of kindness we provide every day. Our staff works hard to inspire our residents so that they can inspire others. Like a pebble dropped into a pond, the staff’s deeds spread across our properties, to our neighbors, down our blocks, and into the entire region.
