As hatred grows against the richest of the world, the 1% are the recipients of scathing rebukes and many threats. While many of these people deserve such comments due to the fact that they are greedy, self-serving oppressive tyrants, I know of one man who cannot be accused of such things. His name is Omar Boraie, and he is the reason that New Brunswick, New Jersey is a thriving city today.
Omar Boraie is the founder of the real estate company Boraie Development LLC. This company has invested over $150 million into the city of New Brunswick to help it become the bustling metropolis that it is today.
According to NY Times, Omar Boraie began turning New Brunswick around by focusing on making it a place where families would like to raise their children. While he has done many things to make this happen, one of the most popular has been the summer movie nights that he puts on each year. The New Jersey Stage released an article discussing how Omar Boraie approached the state theater and offered to make this happen. He told them that if they provided the space for families to come that he would pay for all of the movies and condiments for the families. Throughout the summer, seven movies were shown completely free to the public. Just this last year 7500 families attended the movies.
Omar Boraie also began turning the city around by helping jobs stay in the area. NJbiz.com tells the story of how he approached Johnson & Johnson and convinced them to keep their headquarters and main factory in the city of New Brunswick. He knew that if they left the city that thousands of jobs would go with them. Once Johnson and Johnson decided to stay, it was easy for Omar to convince other corporations to open factories.

The next thing that Omar did was make sure that the various power players were willing to make New Brunswick great again. He allied with the city Mayor, President of the University, newspaper editors, and treasures.
The last thing he did was build the necessary real estate to bring the middle-class businesses back to the area. He provided class A office space to medical practices and law firms and counselors for a fraction of the price compared to other competing cities. He then built condo style homes so they could live in the city and not commute. You can search on Yahoo to know more.
