About 170 spectators — with an even show of support for both candidates — packed the room at New York Law School in Tribeca. The crowd was extremely vocal during the 90-minute debate and, at times, antagonistic with each side rooting loudly for their candidate.

Kurland and Johnson clash at City Council race debate By sam sPoKony For two people so ideologically similar in their fundamental concerns, the two Democratic candidates for the District 3 City Council seat have proven increasingly adept at getting under one another’s skin. Corey Johnson, the current and twiceelected chairperson of Community Board 4, and Yetta Kurland, a civil rights attorney and activist, each traded verbal jabs and concrete proposals during their debate on Aug. 26, at the Chelsea Bow Tie Cinemas on W. 23rd St. The event, which was sponsored by NYC Community Media (the publisher of The Villager and the East Villager), marked one of the last, if not the final, face-to-face showdowns between the two candidates before the primary election on Tues., Sept. 10. The debate was comoderated by Lincoln Anderson, editor of The Villager, and Paul Schindler, editor of Gay City News.

H U D S O NRIVE RPARK.ORG August 29 - September 4, 2013 3 New School female students outnumber males by 2.5 to 1 By LaeL HInes The New School, the private, progressive university located in Greenwich Village, has a baffling gender imbalance among its student body. According to a recent report, all the various divisions of The New School had an average of 71.6 percent female students and 28.4 percent male students. According to the CollegeBoard publication, The New School’s Parsons School of Design even exceeds this existing imbalance, with 79 percent female students to 21 percent male students. Ann Stoler, an anthropology professor at The New School, was reluctant to provide a clear reason for the higher figures for females on campus. She suggested that a potential cause for the sexual skewing is simply the academic nature of The New School itself. “Here at The New School, we don’t offer sciences: biology, chemistry and physics,” she noted. “There is certainly a gender imbalance in the arts and sociology departments because they natural attract more women than men.” Perhaps the environment of The New School also is simply more attractive to women. New York City has a reputation of endless opportunity and artistic expression. Fueled by the media, some women may gravitate to New York City for its reputation of potential glamour and “Carrie Bradshawesque” excitement. Kristen, a New School student, elaborated on this theory. “It’s something about New York City as the liberal arts, they are just more feminine,” she said. “They’re more attractive to women, I think. I mean, in our program there will be like 50 women and two men.” New York City itself has a gender imbalance. According to the 2010 census, there were 4,292,589 females living in New York City and 3,882,544 males. So, perhaps The New School’s sexual ratio is just a reflection of an increasingly feminine city.

Chin claimed her opponent lacks political experience and spews misinformation, while Rajkumar knocked Chin as the candidate of big real estate, based on Chin’s support from the Real Estate Board of New York. The candidates referenced their immigrant pasts, and proudly touted their accomplishments. Chin, who grew up in District 1, recalled her journey to the United States 50 years ago, and expressed awe at the fact that an immigrant such as herself could fulfill the American Dream by becoming a city councilmember. Rajkumar, who was born here, has dedicated her life to social justice, and is a civil rights attorney. Later in the evening, Rajkumar, a Democratic district leader from Battery Park City, also acknowledged the very notion of opportunity. “This is progress seeing a South Asian American and a Chinese-American running for an office. When does that happen?” she asked. Asked, specifically, if it was important that Chinatown, which is in District 1, have a Chinese-American representative, Rajkumar answered that this is the “Obama era,” where people vote on issues and strong representation. While Chin and Rajkumar give land use top Photos by Don Mathisen City Councilmember Margaret Chin, left, and her opponent Jenifer Rajkumar at the Aug. 22 debate sponsored by NYC Community Media. priority, their perspectives on the issue vary. Chin has been involved with several land use development projects during her four-year term, and looks to the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA) project as a boon for affordable housing. On the SPURA site, which has been vacant more than 45 years, Chin was able to help secure 50 percent permanent affordable housing, a total of 500 units. “Because of the community coming together Morton Williams, the single source for your Labor Day needs. — [former SPURA] site tenants, organizations, housing and community boards — working together with the city, we were able to come together and craft a compromise,” Chin said. But Rajkumar was critical of Chin’s ability to work well with the community, and accused her of serving real estate interests rather than her own constituents in the district. Rajkumar wrote an op-ed article on SPURA for a local blog in which she blasted local politicians for not doing enough for the site’s future residents. She advocates for 100 percent affordable housing in the multiblock development at the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, and said former residents displaced 50 years ago when the site was cleared for redevelopment are thankful for her position. But Chin, in turn, criticized Rajkumar for never even attending any community board meetings on SPURA. “How can you write an article criticizing the work people did for three years to come together for a historic compromise?” Chin asked angrily. Rajkumar said it was not her job to attend SPURA meetings, and instead listed all the community meetings she has attended, including those of the Battery Park City CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), of which she said she is the leader. At that, Ninfa Segarra, a former deputy mayor in the Giuliani administration, stood up and shouted in objection, “You are not! I am!” This set off the crowd and people grew wild and began to yell out questions to the candidates. “We both are,” Rajkumar answered Segarra. Regarding the N.Y.U. 2031 and the South Street Seaport development projects, Rajkumar was more directly involved in those land use projects, and charged that Chin has let real estate developers do whatever they want. Rajkumar, who was lead counsel on discrimination cases with large companies, said Chin is a bad negotiator. “It was a historical moment when Chin approved a 2-million-square-foot expansion into Greenwich Village,” Rajkumar declared. Rajkumar said Chin approved N.Y.U.’s ULURP (uniform land use review procedure) application for the hotly contested megaproject despite a unanimous “No” vote against it by Community Board 2 and opposition by most Villagers, who want to protect the character of the neighborhood. Chin rebutted by noting that Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer supported the plan. She also said the expansion was scaled down more than 25 percent from the initial proposal, and that there were many years of meetings on the project. Rajkumar also took Chin to task for helping developer Howard Hughes Corp. move forward with plans at the South Street Seaport. “She hid a letter of intent from Howard Hughes where he said, ‘We intend to build luxury hotels and market-rate apartments,’ ” Rajkumar accused of Chin. “How can you not let that information be public?” Finally, issues of campaign financing fired up the crowd and brought some to their feet, yet again. Rajkumar said REBNY is supporting Chin as a reward for putting real estate interests first. “They’re pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars into this race to buy this Council seat for Councilmember Chin,” Rajkumar said. Chin suggested Rajkumar look at her campaign finance record, and questioned where the funding was. Rajkumar had asked Chin to disavow the outside support of the Jobs for New York PAC, which includes REBNY, in a previous debate, but Chin said while she did not want the funding, there was nothing she could do, since it was a so-called independent expenditure, as opposed to a direct contribution to her campaign. A lightening round of questions by comoderators Lincoln Anderson, editor of The Villager, and Josh Rogers, editor of Downtown Express, brought some levity to the debate. Chin is for the Yankees; Rajkumar likes the Mets. When each was asked for a positive adjective to describe her opponent, Rajkumar said, “I love the colors that she wears.” (Both candidates had on different shades of pink). Chin had to think for a second, before grudgingly saying, “Female.” August 29 - September 4, 2013 5 After 33 years in business, the Odessa Café Bar on Avenue A will close on Sat., Aug. 31. Odessa Restaurant next door will remain open. Last Saturday a half dozen customers lounged over lunch and drinks. Two locals said they were saddened by the impending closure. “Where are we going to go now?” wondered Meg Rowley, 25, of the East Village. “There are no other bars like this. We’ve had birthday parties here. We bring people here. It’s our go-to bar.” Her friend Erin Mosbaugh, 24, of the Lower East Side, took a dimmer view. “I think it’s going to become the ubiquitous $14 cocktail spot that we have so much of already,” she said fatalistically. According to the food blog Eater, the building’s new owners plan to convert the retro cafe / bar into a “full-service American brasserie restaurant.” Odessa bar, beer ’n’ blintzes retro dive, to close Photos by Jefferson Siegel 6 August 29 - September 4, 2013 Kurland and Johnson clash at District 1 race debate; Continued from page 1 and from Fifth Ave. to the Hudson River. But beyond that sense of urgency, the explosive atmosphere of Monday evening’s debate — which featured an audience of extremely vocal supporters on both sides (but particularly Johnson’s) — was fueled primarily by pointed and, at times, personal attacks that have become a constant feature in this tense race. RESTORING A HOSPITAL Asked what would be the top issues they would focus on, both Johnson and Kurland led off by declaring that their first priority, if elected, would be to work toward restoring a full-service hospital to the district, since so many Lower West Side residents feel that their healthcare needs have been neglected following the closing of St. Vincent’s Hospital. Kurland has long made the hospital issue a centerpiece of her campaign by touting her strong leadership in the fight against St. Vincent’s demise, while also claiming that a lawsuit she filed — with the support of the Coalition for a New Village Hospital — succeeded in forcing the state’s Department of Health “to admit it had a legal obligation to restore a hospital at the site of St. Vincent’s Hospital.” Assemblymember Richard Gottfried, chairperson of the Assembly Health Committee, attended the debate, and afterward told The Villager that Kurland’s claim that the state Health Department had admitted any such thing was “horses—t!” Kurland claimed, again misleadingly, this is why North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System is creating a $110 million emergency medical facility across the street from the new housing. At the Aug. 26 debate, Kurland continued to push her plan to turn the free-standing E.R. into a more hefty 200-bed, full-service hospital. “The coalition I’ve worked with on this has had engineers come in to analyze the site, and they said they could add four to six floors to that building for the same or similar cost,” she said. “That would be a good stepping stone, a good first step for our community, and it would save lives.” But when pressed later on in the debate, Kurland balked on committing to being able to get a project like that underway within her first term on the Council, instead simply repeating that it would be a “number one priority.” Johnson, on the other hand, did commit to being able to get started on a bigger hospital within his first term. However, he, like Kurland, said that in the end, he doesn’t care where within the district that hospital is eventually built, as long as it gets done. Johnson expressed interest in what he called a “creative plan” that is being talked about within the community to look at the Photo by Sam Spokony At one point during the feisty debate, Johnson, right, said that no matter what happens in the election, he will continue working with Kurland afterward to fight to restore a full-service hospital on the Lower West Side. He extended his hand to Kurland, and they shook on it. St. John’s Center building — at Houston St. and the West Side Highway — as a potential site for a full-service hospital. “It would still be a good location for the community,” Johnson said, “and I’ve been told that the folks who own that building are open to discussing it.” Even though their attitudes toward the need for a hospital are nearly identical, Kurland chose to attack Johnson’s record regarding activism at St. Vincent’s. At one point, when Johnson spoke about his vehement opposition to Speaker Quinn’s support of the Rudin plan before the hospital’s closure, Kurland called him out for allegedly jumping on the bandwagon too late in the game. “For Corey to say that he opposed the St. Vincent’s closure by testifying at a City Council hearing that took place two-and-ahalf years after the hospital closed…I think we really want to see people standing up before that,” she said. That remark prompted some audience members to aggressively shout Kurland down, with one even telling her, “Shut up!” Johnson responded by acknowledging his opponent’s well-known leadership on the issue, while stressing that he had, in fact, been there during the struggle. “Yetta, you did a great job with regard to St. Vincent’s,” he said. “And I will work with you on that issue whether or not I’m elected. But I was at those community meetings [to fight against the hospital’s closure]. I wasn’t up front leading them — you were. And you did great work. A lot of people did a lot of work and pitched in to that effort. But for you to try to hurtfully say this…I think we need to stop blaming people like that. It’s not the way to move forward.” AFFORDABLE HOUSING Both candidates stated that a fight for new affordable housing in the district would be another top priority if elected. Johnson, who has served on C.B. 4 since 2005, has promoted his work with the board on affordable housing as one of the key aspects of his personal record. In particular, he had stressed at a previous debate on Aug. 22 (sponsored by the L.G.B.T. advocacy group FIERCE) that, under his leadership, C.B. 4 was able to partner with elected officials and agency officials to succeed in creating 139 units of affordable housing at a new building at W. 29th St. and 10th Ave., which will be opening this fall. Those units — of which 70 percent will house artists, 15 percent seniors and 15 percent C.B. 4 residents — were restored to the community by transferring former Section 8 housing units (which were no longer being provided to low-income tenants) from Manhattan Plaza, an artists housing development on W. 43rd Street. “During my time on the community board, the number one issue we’ve pushed is building affordable housing,” Johnson said at the Aug. 22 debate. “And I can’t say that we’ve built enough, but we’ve done our best, and I’m going to keep fighting for that.” At NYC Community Media’s Aug. 26 debate, Johnson reiterated his belief that the city should stop relying so heavily on the state-level 421a program — more commonly known as the “80/20” program — which provides a tax abatement for developers who put up a residential building with 20 percent affordable housing. “The city should be investing public dollars into real affordable housing, like Westbeth [in the West Village] and Penn South [in Chelsea],” he said. Kurland took every opportunity at the Aug. 26 debate to undercut her opponent’s statements on the issue, claiming that he just “talks a good game” when it comes to affordable housing and standing up to big developers. She stated, at various times during the debate that big development projects like Hudson Yards (of which only 5,000 out of 20,000 residential units will be affordable), the Chelsea Market vertical expansion and others were basically unaffected by Johnson’s personal opposition. “Every single one of those plans has been approved by the community board that Corey Johnson chairs,” she said. Kurland, however, did not provide any concrete plans to create affordable housing, and instead said that her work as a tenants’ rights attorney has given her experience in protecting S.R.O. (single-room occupancy) and low-income tenants against conniving landlords. Continued on page 7 August 29 - September 4, 2013 7 Hospital, housing, Hudson River Park among the issues Continued from page 6 KURLAND KEEPS UP ATTACK The issue of real estate interests is one that has led to some of the most heated exchanges in this race, as Kurland continues to portray Johnson as having suspect ties to big developers. Her efforts to do that figured heavily into the Aug. 26 debate — perhaps at the expense of her ability to present her own ideas within the time allotted by the moderators. Specifically, Kurland attempted to publicly shame Johnson for his past job at GFI Development Company, and his current parttime work for the Sydell Group, both of which are New York-based developers. “The real question is,” Kurland claimed, referring to her opponent, “are you going to elect the person who the political insiders and the special interests are going to feel most comfortable with?” Although he did not choose to publicly disclose his past and current employment as part of his candidacy until it was revealed by a political Web site (citycouncilwatch.net) and then pounced upon by Kurland, Johnson has not backed down from those pointed questions of his political integrity. At Monday’s debate, as in previous forums, Johnson instead sought to spend time actually providing detailed answers to the moderators’ questions, as well as trying to punch holes in what he termed her “distortion” of his character. However, Johnson was forced to address the issue head-on several times — especially when, as part of the rules of the debate, Kurland chose to ask him a question about his work for the developers. “I’m not ashamed of what I’ve done, because I didn’t do anything wrong,” Johnson said, claiming that he has done community outreach and marketing work for the developers, rather than engaging in the kind of coldhearted tenant displacement of which Kurland has often implicitly accused him. “You continue to say I’m a real estate executive, tied to real estate interests, and that’s simply not true,” he answered. “I make $52,000 a year, I live in a 300-square-foot studio apartment and I grew up in public housing [in Massachusetts].” Johnson eventually launched a jab of his own at Kurland, by taking an opportunity to ask her about the handgun she was once licensed to use when she owned an English language school at 23rd St. and Park Ave. South, and served as the school’s designated “gun custodian,” as she has put it previously. Kurland has said that, after she sold the school, she gave up the gun. At the Aug. 22 debate, Johnson queried her on how she disposed of the gun, and if it was done in a legal and acceptable way. At that debate, Kurland seemed uncomfortable talking about the disposal of the gun, and stumbled a bit in her answer before saying simply that it was disposed of “in accordance with N.Y.P.D. policy and procedures.” But she lashed out at Johnson when he broached the issue again on Aug. 26, calling his question about the gun a “despicable” example of “gotcha politics.” Adding that she fully supports strict gun-control legislation (as does Johnson), Kurland once again stated that her gun had been turned in to the New York Police Department in a legal manner. It can happen just east of the park at Pier 76, or it can happen just east of the park at Pier 40, and we have to make sure that when those air rights are sold, that it goes through the public approval process, the ULURP [Uniform Land Use Review Procedure], in a way that actually works.” Johnson stressed that one of his top priorities, if elected, would be to focus on building more schools within the district to combat the rampant overcrowding that has taken hold in many West Side classrooms. He expressed hope regarding the forthcoming middle school at 75 Morton St., as well as the Foundling School, a new elementary school on W. 16th St., but pledged to support other existing local schools to make sure they have adequate resources. Johnson pointed specifically to work he did with C.B. 4 to help provide a new school facility to P.S. 51, on W. 45th St., which will nearly double the capacity of that school. “But there is still an overcrowding crisis, and we have to keep fighting for new schools,” he said. Kurland said that education is very important to her because she is an “educator,” and acknowledged the overcrowding issue, but didn’t provide any concrete plans to tackle it. She mentioned the concept of inclusionary zoning, which she said could be used to require developers to build schools and affordable housing in new development — but instead of pursuing that along an education standpoint, she launched into another attack on Johnson’s affordable housing record. SCHOOL OVERCROWDING Both candidates expressed great interest in implementing participatory budgeting within the district. That practice, which is currently used by a handful of city councilmembers, allows local residents and other stakeholders to have a say in how some of the budget funds for their district are spent. Johnson called it “incredibly exciting,” while Kurland said that it helps elected officials remember that “it’s not their money, it’s your money, and they should use it wisely.” Both candidates also said they support the new Citi Bike program over all, although they expressed concerns about safety issues related to lack of enforcement when it comes to the many cyclists who don’t obey the rules of the road. They both added that some of the bike-share docking stations have been poorly placed within the district — blocking buildings, and in some cases making it difficult for emergency vehicles to access entrances — and that the city should be gathering more community input on the BUDGET, BIKE-SHARE, POLICE… placement of those stations. At the Aug. 22 FIERCE debate, both Johnson and Kurland railed against the N.Y.P.D. stop-and-frisk program (which was recently ruled unconstitutional) and both fully supported the City Council’s recent override of Mayor Bloomberg’s veto on new legislation that will reform Police Department oversight to prevent future incidences of racial profiling But there was some disagreement between the two candidates regarding police approaches to overall public safety, particularly in the West Village, considering that the Aug. 22 debate was held on Christopher St. Johnson said he would not support an increase of police officers on patrol as a response to street violence, and would instead favor an approach based on increased communication with the local precinct, in order to prevent new problems — particularly resulting from potentially bad interactions between officers and young people of color. Kurland, on the other hand, said that she fully supports the community policing initiatives that were associated with former Mayor David Dinkins, and that more cops can be effectively put on patrol to combat neighborhood violence, as long as those officers are trained to be properly receptive and responsive to the needs of the community. PIER 40, AIR RIGHTS Both Johnson and Kurland showed a commitment to maintaining Hudson River Park — and especially the ailing Pier 40, at W. Houston St. The park, operated by the Hudson River Park Trust, has been struggling financially amid diminishing funding from the city and state. But Kurland was much more optimistic about being able to salvage Pier 40 — a beloved public space for many locals, especially for its ballfields — without opening up the pier for revenue-generating development, or selling air rights from the park’s commercial piers for use for development on the other side of the highway. “Before we make that quick move, I’d like to see if we can come up with other sources of revenue,” Kurland said, adding that she would try to work with the state to get matching funds to support the Trust. In addition, she proposed an audit of the Trust, in order to make sure its funds are being spent effectively. Johnson took what could either be described as a more pessimistic or a more realistic view of the situation, depending on one’s perspective. “The Hudson River Park Trust is going to put out an R.F.P. [request for proposals] at some point, and we have to make sure that any development on Pier 40 is done in a communityminded way,” he said, adding, “There are going to be air rights sold — it’s going to happen, but we just need to be careful about how it happens. 8 August 29 - September 4, 2013 Anna Nicole BAm and New York City opera present The opera The Ne w Yor k Ti m e s ...an engrossing, outrageous, entertaining and, ultimately, deeply moving new opera.

Matthew Matagrano, 37, pleaded guilty on July 25 to one count of second-degree burglary and another of second-degree burglary as a sexually motivated felony. On the night of Feb. 27, Matagrano entered the Manhattan Detention Complex, near the corner of White and Lafayette Sts., by displaying a fake badge and claiming to be an investigator from the Department of Corrections, according to court documents. After gaining access to a housing section of the complex, Matagrano groped an inmate, while threatening him with physical harm, ordered him into a cell, and subjected him to a strip search, the D.A. said. In addition to the prison sentence, Matagrano was hit with seven years of postrelease supervision.

Family feud Police arrested a pair of cousins visiting from Pennsylvania after officers spotted them fighting in the middle of a West Village street early on Aug. 24. Marcello Wright, 31, and Anthony Padgett, 28, were in the middle of an all-out tussle around 4:30 a.m. on Morton St. between Washington and West Sts., cops said. Neither of the cousins was seriously injured, besides some possible bruises to their pride. Both Wright and Padgett were charged with assault, harassment and disorderly conduct. Tobacco fiend This guy really wanted a cigarette. An employee at the live-music venue Le Poisson Rouge, at 158 Bleecker St., told police he was leaving work around 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 24 when an unknown man — later identified as David Coleman, 35 — approached him and asked if he could bum a smoke. The employee refused him, and tried to keep walking, but Coleman reportedly stepped in front of him, blocking his path. The employee told cops that Coleman then punched him in the face. After Coleman fled the club, the victim walked to the Sixth Precinct and reported the incident, and officers took him out in a patrol car to canvass of the area.

The married father of a young infant resigned his office in June 2011 after an embarrassing sexting scandal about which he initially lied. He entered this year’s race –– his second run for mayor, after an unsuccessful 2005 primary bid against former Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer –– only in late May, at which point major endorsements from labor, elected officials and Democratic clubs were already locked up. Though voters initially appeared willing to give Weiner a second chance –– he topped several polls in June –– revelations in late July that his sexting behavior continued for well more than a year after his resignation caused his numbers to tumble. A Quinnipiac poll earlier this month put his support among likely primary voters at just 10 percent, a level less than half of that enjoyed by three of his competitors. The controversy swirling around a candidate with “a funny name [who’s] done embarrassing things,” Weiner said, has allowed the media to ignore serious issues in favor of superficial fluff that reflects “lazy reporting,” he charged. The Times, he said, dogged him for the color of his pants at a candidates debate at which he arrived after attending a Gay Pride event. (His choice in colors for pants has been an issue since picked up by the Daily News, New York magazine, the Daily Beast and the Huffington Post.) For the recent Dominican Day Parade, he again donned the red pants. Weiner, however, voiced no greater happiness with the coverage he’s getting on matters of greater substance. Asked about a June 12 Times article that reported that many who followed his years in Congress viewed him as “a lawmaker with little patience for making laws and a single-minded focus on generating attention so he could run for mayor of New York… whose restlessness could spill into recklessness,” Weiner charged the piece was “factually wrong,” “misunderstands Congress,” and “was driven by a basic contempt for someone who has tried to do things differently.” The Times, he said, either denigrated or ignored work he accomplished to expand federal government spending on DNA testing by local police, to establish Superfund status for the Newtown Creek that separates Brooklyn and Queens, and to fortify those two boroughs against storm surge by protecting the Belt Parkway and restoring marshlands in Jamaica Bay. The article, he further said, “dismisses as the job of a congressman the idea that you deliver for New York City.” Harping on the number of bills he got passed, Weiner asserted, is a misreading of the reality of gridlock in Washington. “L.B.J. wouldn’t be f------ L.B.J. today,” he said of today’s uncooperative political climate. Throughout the interview, Weiner portrayed himself as a bold independent willing to look beyond the opposing poles of conventional political debates. A supporter of a single-payer healthcare system for New York City residents, he also believes that municipal employees must step up to bear a portion of the burden of their current plans. Saying he is an “agnostic” on charter schools, Weiner said there are more pressing debates to be had over public education, and that the number of charter school students is comparatively small when viewed within the overall school system. The city, he said, lacks an “affordable Council last week in the face of the mayor’s veto. “I don’t believe in creating government bureaucracies to solve a problem that elections are supposed to solve,” Weiner said. “I think we sometimes deal with problems by blurring lines of authority rather than making them sharper.” Saying that there are already checks in place against abusive police behavior, he said, “An individual right of action doesn’t make us safer… . It makes us more litigious.” Weiner voiced particularly strong opposition to the city’s current policy, under court challenge, barring religious groups from renting public school space on weekends to hold worship services. “Government,” he said, “in its desire to observe the lines between church and state, often goes beyond and becomes anti-religion. I don’t see anything wrong with empty classrooms that are rented at market value going to a religious organization.” Asked whether church-state conflicts aren’t inevitable when many congregations have used the schools in the past to preach anti-gay messages, Weiner responded, “It is beyond ridiculous to say [my] position means that I support every word that is said or every organization that then takes advantage of that.” Making determinations based on content, he warned, “would be the worst possible thing to do” –– though the current policy is blanket and not based on specific content. A Bloomberg administration policy that regulated a form of circumcision used in the Orthodox Jewish community that has the mohel suck the blood from the newly circumcised penis, he said, demonstrates a similar “elitism.” According to Weiner, the implementation of that policy, which governs a practice in which 13 newborns have been infected with herpes in the city, leading to two deaths, was “entirely about dictating to a discrete minority community.” Weiner’s willingness to make his points in colorful fashion was apparent right from the start of the interview. Asking about the state of NYC Community Media’s business, which includes four Lower Manhattan neighborhood newspapers and Gay City News, he described such locally focused publications as “the cock-a-roaches” of the media world. But that, too, was a good thing. Larger newspapers have been frantically struggling unsuccessfully to find a formula to keep from losing readers, while the cockroaches, he quipped, survive everything, even nuclear war. “The more neighborhoody the newspaper, the better,” he said. “The more likely they are to be successful.” Photo by Gay City News Anthony Weiner sported American and rainbow flags, an HRC badge and — to the media’s disappointment — white pants in the Gay Pride March in Manhattan this June.

At the same time, he declared himself a “pro-development Democrat” in an environment where most recent development has been seen as shortchanging affordable housing. “I believe we need to grow the city,” he said. “I want to create jobs.” And even as he showed off his Citi Bike membership key, Weiner declared of bike path advocates, “There is also this jihadist mentality that is not going to play with me.” On police-community relations, he said the city needs a new mayor and a new police commissioner but voiced opposition to the appointment of an inspector general and to City Council legislation that would give citizens a private right to bring legal action against the New York Police Department — both of which were upheld by the City August 29 - September 4, 2013 11 Photos by Tequila Minsky Weiner and Spitzer are on a roll, at least on gag van The Weiner Mobile, which you can sometimes find parked in Union Square, is now also sporting the new Spitzer Bordello.

In the Sept. 10 Democratic primary, there are three frontrunners, Christine Quinn, Bill de Blasio and Bill Thompson. Each is qualified to run the city, though some more than others. Two other candidates appear unelectable: Anthony Weiner due to his ongoing sexting scandals, and John Liu because of his fundraising illegalities and struggles. Nevertheless, earlier in the race, Liu swept the endorsements of several leading local political clubs, Village Independent Democrats, Downtown Independent Democrats and Coalition for a District Alternative. Sal Albanese will earn votes for forgoing real estate money and opposing N.Y.U.’s 2031 plan, but his principled candidacy is a long shot. We have thought long and hard about who to endorse in this race. Reaching a decision, for various reasons, has not been easy. De Blasio’s compassionate message of “two cities” has resonated with some voters. His idea of funding pre-K and afterschool programs by taxing the rich a bit more seems achievable. We like that he’s now speaking out about saving the city’s struggling hospitals, yet, by all accounts, he was M.I.A. three years ago when it was crunch time for St. Vincent’s Hospital. A larger charge against de Blasio, however — and a legitimate one, in our view — is that his four years as public advocate have been notably undistinguished. In short, we feel that we just don’t know enough about him. In addition, he supports allowing churches to use public schools for Sunday worship services, saying they do good work in the community. But Quinn, in a view we share, is strongly opposed on constitutional grounds of separation of church and state. Thompson would be a strong advocate for education, and he has some good ideas. He told us, for one, that he would modify the Housing Authority’s “infill” plan by making 50 percent of these new units affordable — that this ratio could still generate revenue for the authority. Yet, despite nearly upsetting Bloomberg last time, he seems to lack fire in the belly. Our community papers cover Christine Quinn’s West Side Council district, and we’ve been reporting about her for years. She’s hard-working, smart, tough — and, if elected mayor, would hit the ground running. She has helped run the city since 2006 as the city’s numbertwo official. She knows how to get things done, has gotten much done. She thoroughly understands the city’s budget process. She would be a tough negotiator with the unions, which will be critically important for the next mayor. She has “brought home the bacon” for many deserving organizations and projects in District 3, which stretches on the West Side from Canal St. to 55th St. For example, she notably helped secure a new school building at 75 Morton St. for a much-needed middle school. And she has always been there for residents in large affordable housing complexes, like Westbeth and West Village Houses. In terms of constituent services, her staff consistently earns high marks for their responsiveness — which indicates a Quinn administration would be well run. Yet, no question, Quinn has “baggage” — and some of it is extremely large and conspicuously right in her own Council district. Her supporters say, in her defense, that there are no perfect politicians, and no perfect people — that politics is about striking compromises, that one must look at her overall record and look at her as a person. Regarding the extension of term limits in 2008, many New Yorkers opposed it, as did we. We did not accept that the twoterm limit — which had been approved by two previous voter referenda — should be overturned legislatively. Quinn helped Continued on page 16 letters to the editor Cut to the chase on Council race To The Editor: Re “Yetta Kurland: Bold in vision and yet spare on the details” (news article, Aug. 22): As I did for the Corey Johnson article, I tried to sift through this one for facts. This article provides very little: “[This is] Kurland’s second attempt to win the seat. ... “Kurland’s signature issue is replacing the defunct St. Vincent’s Hospital...she is stingy with specific answers as to how she will achieve any goals. … “The state Department of Health, which would have to approve a new hospital, opposes building such a facility there. Kurland would not say how she would overcome that resistance. … “Kurland touts her roots in the community, citing work she has done with the AIDS groups...her efforts to successfully enact marriage for same-sex couples...and the legal cases she has brought that aided women and the L.G.B.T. community. … “Kurland gave her most detailed responses when talking about her opponent.” If all Kurland provides as qualifications are her volunteer work for gay causes, her work as an attorney fighting the city, and a failed attempt to get on the City Council four years ago, then I think the candidate “with his hair freshly cut, his light beard artfully trimmed, and his suit neatly pressed” is better prepared for the job. Jim Connolly Details on Yetta’s grooming, please! To The Editor: Re “Yetta Kurland: Bold in vision and yet spare on the details” (news article, Aug. 22): Duncan, I’m so disappointed. After your near obsession with Corey Johnson’s grooming habits, not one word about whether Yetta Kurland was freshly showered or wearing clean clothes when she arrived for her interview. But more to the point, this article does highlight the difference between the candidates. Corey Johnson has specific ideas to help the residents of City Council District 3. Yetta Kurland’s campaign consists of two things: broad, unrealistic platitudes and attacks on Corey Johnson. Lowell Kern This time a slap — next time? To The Editor: Re “Publisher slaps pol as campaigns spar over St. Vincent’s” (news article, Aug. 22): Anyone familiar with the East / West / Greenwich Village political scene knows we have more than our fair share of “crazies” who are passionate about politics. Though trying at times, these over-the-top types bring a certain color to community activism that is an indelible part of the Village’s culture. That being said, when an angry George Capsis slapped state Senator Brad Hoylman at a pro-Chris Quinn rally on Aug. 19, it reminded me of nothing of Village politics. It reminded me of Tucson, Arizona, and the day Congresswoman Gabriella Giffords was tragically shot. There, as here, a man whose mental state was compromised (Mr. Capsis later admitted as much) committed an act of violence against an elected official; although here the perpetrator’s weapon of choice was a hand rather than a gun. Next time, we may not be so lucky. The N.Y.P.D. needs to take the threat of violence against elected officials far more seriously and be extremely proactive in the EVAN FORSCH Continued on page 30 August 29 - September 4, 2013 15 Corey Johnson for City Council in District 3 primary The District 3 City Council race, for the seat held the past 14 years by Speaker Christine Quinn, pits two passionate and energetic L.G.B.T. contenders against each other for what has often been dubbed “the gay seat.” Yetta Kurland is an attorney who has won some impressive civil rights victories in her career, remains outspoken on the closing of St. Vincent’s Hospital, and has rallied community members on other issues, including Superstorm Sandy relief. Corey Johnson has also been a community activist during his 13 years in New York and has served for eight years on Community Board 4, encompassing Chelsea and Hell’s Kitchen, including two terms as board chairperson. The two broadly share common progressive views on a host of issues, including the need for more affordable housing, more classrooms, increased spending on H.I.V. prevention, greater citizen participation in allocating funds available to the councilmember, and curbs on the excessive use of stop-and-frisk tactics by the New York Police Department. A central theme of Kurland’s campaign has been her willingness to take on established powers in the city, an approach typified by her 2009 challenge to Quinn’s re-election and her tireless activism around the St. Vincent’s Hospital issue. Johnson emphasizes his skill at working with government bodies and other stakeholders to achieve the goals he values. Evidence for that includes his demonstrated mastery of policy details and the confidence his C.B. 4 colleagues placed in him by twice electing him chairperson. We believe that Johnson’s skill set and his vision for his role as a councilmember make him better suited to represent the diverse communities within District 3. The bitterness and pettiness that has characterized this contest –– including determined whisper campaigns waged by surrogates for both candidates –– is disappointing, and both Johnson and Kurland bear responsibility for not having run a more positive race. Kurland spent far too much time trying to link her opponent to the evils of the real estate industry based on two staff jobs with developers he held for relatively short amounts of time. Johnson, for his part, for too long was inexplicably opaque about his résumé, which did little but fuel the sense there was something to be uncovered. The Aug. 26 debate at the Chelsea Bowtie Cinema, however, nicely clarified the choice between the two candidates. Johnson offered detailed explanations for community board work he has accomplished, which gave credence to the proposals he discussed. He also set a generally positive tone for the evening that suggested he has the ability to work with community members of widely divergent opinions. He acknowledged that Kurland had led the charge on the hospital issue, and pledged, if elected, to work with her to restore a full-service hospital to the Lower West Side. Kurland offered her vision and also a profile of herself that matched that vision. She was too often, though, short on specifics, a flaw that has hobbled both of her Council runs. She also has an unfortunate tendency to use upbeat language to mask serious aspersions she is suggesting about her opponent –– ones she apparently is unwilling to make directly. Should Johnson be elected, we hope he will recognize the vital importance of transparency in his public life. His community work to date suggests significant promise and we urge a vote for him. EDITORIAL A better choice for District 1: Jenifer Rajkumar Four years ago Margaret Chin told us she would have said no to the deals to get beloved schools like P.S. 234 decades ago, and Spruce Street School more recently, because the community was giving away too much to corporations and developers and didn’t get enough affordable housing. It raised our eyebrows, but we endorsed her for City Council, in part, because she made it clear that she was not against new schools, but she would use tough negotiating tactics to get the best deal for Downtown. Now a councilmember, she has said yes to worse deals then the ones she criticized and we are disappointed that she has not lived up to her promise. She does not deserve to be reelected. When it’s time to negotiate, Chin “goes into the room…closes the door, makes the deal and shuts the people out.” Jenifer Rajkumar, Chin’s opponent in the First District City Council Democratic primary, said that when Rajkumar announced her campaign a few months ago. Not all of her criticisms are valid, but that one is spot on. It is true that Chin spends an extraordinary amount of time meeting with community groups and others to get their views on particular proposals, but she does not include leaders when the real talks start. This approach has alienated constituents in the Village and elsewhere over several projects, including the New York University expansion. In a talking point published in The Villager, she promised not to back a business improvement district in Soho unless it had “substantial support,” including from Community Board 2. She ended up supporting the BID saying the proposal was altered in response to neighbors’ concerns, but there was no clear indication that community opposition had changed. Rajkumar, a Democratic district leader living in Battery Park City and a civil rights attorney, has been an active presence in Lower Manhattan. Her record is not as strong and long as we’d like, and she has not convinced us that she will definitely be a good councilmember, but her intelligence, her communication skills and her diligence give us hope. We think she deserves a chance. One of the most disturbing things about this campaign is that the real estate industry and others that make up the Jobs for New York PAC have tilted the field for Chin with frequent mailings on her behalf. The city’s model campaign finance system has been compromised by the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision. While Chin doesn’t control this independent real estate money, she is the clear beneficiary, and if she wins, she will have strong incentive to keep satisfying developers, particularly since she would be able to run for re-election one more time. If Rajkumar wins, her incentive would be to provide good representation to the people of Lower Manhattan to ensure her own re-election — the way democracy is supposed to work. To be clear, we are not saying Chin does not work for her community. Her successfully winning 50 percent affordable housing at SPURA (Seward Park Urban Renewal Area), for one, was a major victory for her and the community. We recognize her many years of advocacy for affordable housing, immigrant rights and ballot access — and we hope that work continues, win or lose. But the Real East Board of New York is clearly happy with her first term, and if Chin wins, she would be taking a political risk if she opposed them. At the South Street Seaport, she passively accepted a false city argument that two land use reviews known as ULURPs couldn’t be discussed in tandem, when in fact the city did exactly that nine years ago in Tribeca in a deal that led to a new community center and more school space. She defended the city’s decision to redact a key section of an agreement in which the Seaport’s developer, Howard Hughes Corp., outlined its intention to build a large hotel and residences in the neighborhood. It’s hard to imagine that more community needs could not have been met had Chin been more forceful negotiating the Pier 17 deal at the Seaport. She has not been an effective representative for the community. We have not just heard this from a few activists from a few neighborhoods; we’ve also heard the same thing privately from community leaders and others who have nothing against her. The only way to get better representation is to vote people out when they fall short. If Rajkumar doesn’t do a good job, she’s not likely to be able to stay in office for another term. But we think Rajkumar has what it takes to be a good councilmember. The Villager endorses Jenifer Rajkumar in the Sept. 10 primary.

And despite his slams against Quinn now on term limits, de Blasio himself actually flip-floppped on the issue. But Quinn said the real question is what she did with those four additional years: that she helped secure 75 Morton St.; prevented layoffs for 4,100 teachers; stopped a policy that would have required people to show ID at homeless shelters; blocked a requirement for fingerprinting to receive food stamps; helped create manufacturing and tech jobs around the city; and, ultimately, passed bills on the living wage and paid sick leave. (Full disclosure: Despite our objections to overturning term limits four years ago, we did endorse Quinn for re-election, feeling she was the best candidate at that time versus Yetta Kurland and Maria Passannante-Derr.) As for St. Vincent’s Hospital, which heartbreakingly closed in 2010, Quinn has come under fire for, according to her critics, not fighting hard enough to keep it alive, or to win a replacement, albeit smaller, full-service hospital at the site. The main reason St. Vincent’s closed, however, is because it suffered from years of gross mismanagement. Plus, it had assumed the debt of the city’s other failing Catholic hospitals. St. Vincent’s also had negotiated terrible reimbursement plans. In addition, St. Vincent’s was part of a larger epidemic of about a dozen hospital closings around the city in the past decade, so it can also been seen as part of a wider problem. Quinn admirably did get Rudin Management (which is now building condos on the former hospital site) to put up $1 million each for local school programs and for preserving local affordable housing, and she got the city to commit to buy 75 Morton as part of the deal, and she got a commitment for a park and an AIDS memorial across from the former hospital. Yet none of these “gets” staunch the pain of the hospital’s loss. Separate from the Rudin project, a $110 million, 24/7 emergency room and comprehensive-care center will open in June 2014, inside the former St. Vincent’s O’Toole building. This facility will be a great start and we’re sure it will get heavy use. But people desperately want — and deserve — a full-service hospital on the Lower West Side. Of course, it won’t be easy. Quinn has told us that while Bloomberg didn’t believe in saving struggling private hospitals, if elected, she would take a different approach, and would try to save them. Taking a break from her campaigning this Wednesday, Quinn promised us, in a phone interview: “I’m going to commit to bringing back a full-service hospital to the Lower West Side. Period.” And, on other issues, she vowed, “We’re going to expand landmarking in Lower Manhattan, including the Village. And we’re going to build affordable housing across the city. We’re going to expand Gifted and Talented classes across the city.” As for the Council’s approval of New York University’s 2031 expansion plan on its South Village superblocks, Quinn, in this case, we feel, yes, definitely must shoulder some responsibility for this unpopular decision. However, she and her supporters say the onus rests on Councilmember Margaret Chin, in whose district the superblocks are located. One Quinn ally fatalistically told us, “Big institutions get more of what they want.” But N.Y.U. got way too much. In the end, the City Council approved nearly 2 million square feet of development. The decision is being challenged in court, though, and the plan may yet be scaled back. As for de Blasio, who is an N.Y.U. graduate, in the end, he enthusiastically approved the scaled-down, revised N.Y.U. plan, and urged the City Council to do so, too. Quinn has also been criticized for the approval of the Chelsea Market rooftop expansion. Again, she helped win “gets” for the community, but many constituents were alienated. In general, the rap against Quinn is that she hasn’t been enough of a foil to the mayor. But the city, over all, has run well thanks to her teamwork with Bloomberg. She’s differed with him, though, picking her moments, strategically. We definitely saw this after Sandy, when Quinn aggressively called for a federal study of storm-surge barriers for New York Harbor, much to the chagrin of Bloomberg, who slammed the scheme as too costly. We also saw it in her State of the City address earlier this year, when she pledged to fight to protect middle-class New Yorkers and create 40,000 units of affordable housing over 10 years. As we said when we endorsed her four years ago: Christine Quinn is the complete package as a politician, she has all the skills, experience and know-how. She already intimately knows — right now — how to run the city, something none of the other candidates can claim. She’ll continue the positive things that we’ve liked under Bloomberg — the health initiatives, bike lanes and so forth — and, as she promised in her State of the City address earlier this year, she’ll also turn the city in a different direction. She evoked the name of former Mayor Ed Koch in that speech. Like Koch, she’s a liberal who has become more of a centrist — which Koch always told us, in his view, was necessary to run the city. Koch, before he died, told The Villager that Quinn solidly had his vote in this race. When we asked Quinn on Wednesday about the criticism that she has been too close to the current mayor, she didn’t hesitate in her response. “I am my own woman,” she said firmly. Of course, Quinn’s candidacy is historic, in that, not only is she a woman, but the first openly gay person to run for mayor. She’s definitely no billionaire, like Bloomberg. Rather, her roots are as a hard-working tenant activist. We do have faith that Quinn will be her own woman when she becomes mayor. And we’re excited to see the things she’ll do once she is the one in the driver’s seat. We support Christine Quinn for mayor in the Sept. 10 Democratic primary. editorial John Catsimatidis for mayor in the Republican primary This year’s Republican primary for mayor is an interesting race, with the two top candidates being John Catsimatidis and Joe Lhota. A third candidate, George McDonald, is also in the running. Lhota, a former deputy mayor under Rudy Giuliani and most recently head of the M.T.A., brings a track record of having worked in New York City government at a high level. He played important roles helping the city recover from both 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy. On the negative side, we well remember Lhota’s acting as Giuliani’s designated attack dog in 1999 against the Brooklyn Museum forcing it to remove its controversial “elephant dung Madonna” artwork at the threat of losing city funding. This particular incident sticks with us (no pun intended) because we need an open-minded mayor who doesn’t stifle creativity and free expression. McDonald has done great work with the Doe Fund, getting exconvicts back on their feet by providing them jobs and housing. Catsimatidis’s candidacy has a lot to like, and his personal story is inspirational. He’s a self-made man who grew up in an immigrant family on E. 135th St. in East Harlem. Through hard work and a shrewd business sense, he has built a supermarket empire, Gristedes, with 2,000 employees in the city, and another 6,000 employees at his Red Apple convenience stores located outside of the city. He also took over a troubled Canadian oil business and has made a fortune out of it. His business acumen would be a plus for New York, just as Bloomberg’s has been. In fact, Catsimatidis calls himself the “common man’s Bloomberg,” in that he vows he will never forget his roots and where he came from. His work raising funds for and being a strong supporter of the Police Athletic League for 30 years is a testament to this. Coming from outside of politics — just as Bloomberg did — benefits him, since he won’t be beholden to political allegiances and special interests. Above all, Catsimatidis is a pragmatist. For example, he has said he would increase vocational education, to help ensure that youths receive jobs training and a path toward bettering their lot in life. He’s a plainspoken man who is open to ideas and thinking outside the box. Above all, Catsimatidis believes in keeping our city safe and secure, which is important, especially, in an era of terrorism. He would keep Ray Kelly on as police commissioner. Not all voters would agree with this, but Catsimatidis stands firm that Kelly has done a great job. Ultimately, he’s not afraid to stand by his convictions, and is an independent thinker, beholden to no one. The Villager supports John Catsimatidis for mayor in the Republican primary. Julie Menin in Manhattan borough president election It’s probably a testament to Scott Stringer’s fine work as Manhattan borough president that there are several good candidates to replace him. All four of the Democrats running would continue and build on Stringer’s exemplary system of screening, appointing and training community board members — which has pretty much ended the cronyism and conflict-of-interest problems of the past. The candidates in this primary make up, by far, the best field of any of the races we looked at this year. But one candidate, Julie Menin, former chairperson of Community Board 1 in Lower Manhattan, stands out. Except for appointing community board members, borough presidents have mostly advisory powers and can be easily ignored. It takes skill and savvy to be effective, and like a community board chairperson, the post’s power rests more with the person, rather than the office.

Admitting that his kitchen is “almost more crazy” than a lot of the places that he has worked, he enjoys spending some quality time harvesting the crops. “Sometimes it’s nice to spend an hour or two” in the garden, he said. “You’re still working, but it’s different — you’re out of the neon lights.” “It’s a big challenge running both a garden and a kitchen,” he said. He added that he’s “learning more every day” about producing vegetables in quantity. Although it’s not a large garden, it’s productive. “We never need to buy basil,” he noted. And when they are producing lots of greens you’ll find them in Rosemary’s trademark heirloom tomato salad, which is created with Moises’ favorite tomatoes, which he personally selects from the farmers’ market. (Full disclosure: We tried the salad. It was delicious). The garden was the idea of owner Carlos Suarez, formerly of BOBO, who was lucky enough to find a building that was only one story high and amenable to his needs. It’s location in the Village is perfect for the chef. “This area is a culinary hub,” he said. “It doesn’t get much better than this. Also, it feels like a real neighborhood.” Moises especially loves having the kids in from nearby P.S. 41, who might spend an afternoon learning how to make focaccia and getting a real-life education on how a restaurant works. John Mutovic, Rosemary’s service director, agreed that the establishment is community oriented. “It’s a family area and we treat the restaurant like a family — like an extension of home,” he said. Local parents bring their children in all week, and Mutovic said he looks forward to watching them grow. Rosemary’s, he declared, is “a perfect fit for the neighborhood.” Rosemary’s signature heirloom tomato salad is made with fresh ingredients from upstairs. By Bob Krasner Grow your own? On a Manhattan rooftop? If we are talking about arugula, parsley, sage, lettuce, fennel, kale and other assorted greens and vegetables, go right ahead. And if you happen to have a restaurant right downstairs, all the better. Rosemary’s, the “rustic Italian” restaurant at the corner of Greenwich Ave. and W. 10th St., not only grows all of the above on the roof above, but actually makes good use of it as well.

August 29 - September 4, 2013 19 villager arts & entertainment Tune in, Turn up, Drop Beats Vikings of electronic music BY VONYX (soundcloud.com/mikawvawn) Growing up, two Norwegian twins lived down my street — Magnus and Thomas. I remember walking over to their highly organized house, hanging out with blondie and his brown-haired brother day after day. Their kitchen always smelt of pastry dough. Their mother always had a placid, straight-lipped smile, tough enough to survive frozen tundra. Everything about their house was fairly quiet and normal, until the twins went outside. Any sport that risked bone breaking and parental scolding was their passion. Saturdays they’d ride mountain bikes down woodsy switchbacks behind our school. Sundays they’d backflip ten feet into the air and happily plummet to the grass beside the trampoline. Those tiny kids were cats, always landing on their feet, no matter what stunt they were pulling. Magnus once filmed a video of himself snowboarding down a hill, soaring off of a jump and grinding on the top of a soccer goal, ten feet high. There is no Norwegian word for risk. Only fun. I tried to keep up with them, but the scars and bruises added up too quickly. Mrs. Jensen, their mom, would stand at the windowsill facing the trampoline, watching them soar past the roofline as though she were watching a blizzard coming in. She’d probably be proud if she knew they have at least 50,00 views on their stunt-filled YouTube channel. The delightfully crazy twins finally left, with all of their Scandinavian dangerloving attitude. Yet in honor of their everhappy demeanor, I would like to feature a few DJs who hail from the rocky coastline above the Arctic Circle (and one who hails from Chicago). Photo courtesy of The Windish Agency Rinsed has given Jacques Greene an opulent to his (new) New York home. Rinsed presents Jacques Green & Cashmere Cat Rinsed is a party that is half art installation and half high-end dance. It’s as much about the space as it is the music. Previously, they have thrown down in an all white loft with walls that curve gently from floor to ceiling. No corners. The DJ booth was a cocoon of cloth. They had burlesque dancers dangle from the ceiling, grabbing partygoers and pulling them high above the dance floor. But apparently that’s where they draw the line. Rinsed is exciting and inventive. If you want to make it to their next event, you must be on the mailing list to receive the secret address. This party is all about welcoming the new New Yorkers. DJ and producer Jacques Greene will be headlining, as the Montreal born deck slinger prepares for a long line of gigs here in his new city. Greene has been exploding onto the scene with slow-building, deep grooves. He has a few new releases up on Soundcloud (soundcloud.com/jacquesgreene) available for free download. Along the lines of recent trends, there are some retro R&B samples laid over melancholy synth stabs and ethereal basslines. It’s hot. Cashmere Cat, another recent transplant to New York, hails from Norway and will be taking over the decks earlier in the night. His style is much different.

Third St.) Visit ifccenter.com “The film asks you to sift through the fragments of history in order to reach your own conclusions.” She has also described it as “an anti-anti-Nixon film.” CNN, which aired it about a month ago, no doubt became interested because it seemed likely to appeal to both liberals and conservatives. The result doesn’t achieve some sort of post-partisan wisdom, which it seems to be aiming for. Instead, it just feels wishy-washy, even hagiographic. In the end, it’s no better than Michael Moore’s smug certainties. The images of “Our Nixon” consist mostly of home movies shot by Nixon aides H. R. Haldeman, Dwight Chapin, and John Ehrlichman.

It never addresses his anti-Semitism. When Chapin says that Nixon really wanted to end the Vietnam War quickly and that anti-war protesters actually made this more difficult, the limits of Lane’s perspective become glaring. Whatever one’s opinion of Nixon, there’s not much in “Our Nixon” that’s likely to challenge it. It’s essentially a collection of the president’s “greatest hits,” some of them undeniably benign (landing a man on the moon, breaking the taboo against American politicians going to China.) The film does attempt to humanize the president by giving some sense of what it was like to work with him on a daily basis. Liberals can go home happy that “Our Nixon” eventually turns against the president in its final half hour, which addresses Watergate and the prison terms of Chapin, Haldeman, and Ehrlichman. Conservatives can be grateful that it’s not a hatchet job on Nixon, although the president’s brother Ed criticized the film after its CNN broadcast. As for me, I’ll take Robert Altman’s fictional vision of a paranoid Nixon ranting into his tape recorders in “Secret Honor.” It may not be literally true, but it digs much deeper into the flaws merely hinted at in “Our Nixon.” BY STEVE ERICKSON Most recent topical documentaries don’t provide an entry point for spectators who disagree with them. If you think that drones provide a more efficient and humane way of waging war and that targeted assassinations are a good idea, even if they sometimes wind up killing innocent people, you’re probably not going to get much out of Rick Rowley’s polemical documentary “Dirty Wars.” At least in theory, “Our Nixon” is different.

BY SCOTT STIFFLER If you spent last weekend scanning those back-to-school circulars with the ulterior motive of appropriating some of your kid’s writing supplies for your own desk, then you might already be a member of Pen Parentis. You’re certainly thinking like one. Through peer support, outreach activities and podcasts, the NYC-based nonprofit literary organization provides resources to authors who are also parents, to help them stay on creative track after starting a family. Open to the public, their free monthly literary salon provides a 21+ atmosphere in which avid readers, as well as professional and novice writers, can mingle over happy hour wine and beer, then sit down for a series of readings. On September Liz Rosenberg reads from “The Laws of Gravity.” 10, the salon begins its tenth season with poet and author Liz Rosenberg. An awardwinning writer of books for young readers, Rosenberg will present excerpts from her second novel for adults: the bestselling “The Laws of Gravity.” Another bestselling author, Will Allison (“Long Drive Home”), balances fatherhood with writing novels and serving as editor to several literary journals. Emerging author Amy Shern, who has two kids and teaches writing, makes the trip across the bridge, to read from her second novel (“The Mermaid of Brooklyn”). Finally, Pen Parentis will present a $1,000 check to the winner of the 2013-2014 Pen Parentis Writing Fellowship for New Parents: John Jodzio. The author of two short story collections (including “Get In if You Want to Live”), Penn Parentis calls his work “funny, bizarre, and ultimately an emotional roller coaster.” Jodzio is flying in from Minneapolis, where he lives with his wife and his two-year-old son. After the readings and award presentation, meet the authors and have them sign your own well-worn copy of their work — or purchase a fresh version from 172 Allen Street’s Bluestockings Bookstore, whose staff will be on hand.

Photo courtesy of The Windish Agency Continued from page 19 three months out of the year living in punishing arctic darkness, his music is pretty perky. You gotta hand it to the Norwegians — they’re badasses. Lindstrøm is peeking out right behind Terje on the show bill. His sound is quite a bit more like Cashmere Cat in that it’s happy and more in tune with the hip-hop side than Terje’s disco. The reverb and atmosphere of his mixes lend his music a strange and mystical vibe. This is not hip-swinging, hand-clapping music. It’s more of an arm-folding, head-bopping kind of jam. Picture yourself on a cold Norwegian hillside watching the Northern Lights twinkle behind the clouds. It’s serene. Majestic. Suddenly off in the distance, a boombox trolls up the hillside lulling some real thuggish, drug-dealing music. Welcome to Lindstrøm. 21+. Thur., Sept. 5.

Back in 1983, he sped up old disco records, added some synthesizers here and there and made thousands groove at his Chicago nightclub, Warehouse. It was immensely popular in the city’s gay nightlife scene. The sound was new, exciting and like nothing else people had heard — pure adrenalinefueled, sexy grooves. Music to move the soul. People on Chicago’s streets couldn’t get enough of the music Frankie was spinning at the House. They started calling it Warehouse music, but soon, it was just shortened to “House music.” Unbelievably, Frankie Knuckles, the guy who birthed an entire musical movement, is still at it. At 58 years old, he is well into his senior citizen discount years. Yet there’s no doubt that Frankie will put on a clinic at Cameo Gallery — all night long. 21+. Fri., Sept. 6.

BY SCOTT STIFFLER A trip around the world has a way of changing your outlook — but for Billy, Vinnie and Cheech, the adventure of a lifetime “all really started on Avenue D, on a Wednesday, at about a quarter to eight in the morning.” That’s when the three sanitation workers decide to finally use their overtime, holiday and sick days. But soon after embarking on the Mediterranean cruise of their dreams, they discover that there’s plenty of garbage (political and social) to be cleaned up, whether you’re relaxing at sea or working at home. Enlightened and energized by some new friends (including a cadre of singing mermaids), the newly minted activist pals return to their jobs, determined to fight pollution — on the sidewalks of the Lower East Side, and in our minds! This rip-roaring “Operetta for the Street” is the latest in Theater for the New City’s grand summertime tradition of touring the boroughs with a show whose serious message is peppered with clever jokes, broad physical comedy and music made for dancing and singing along. It’s a great way to enjoy what’s left of the summer, and introduce kids to socially conscious theater — which never goes out of season, or style.

If, as The Villager reported, the N.Y.P.D. was present at the event (as should be required at all outdoor political events), they should have intervened no later — and probably much sooner — than the point at which Mr. Capsis raised his clenched fist to within inches of former state Senator Tom Duane’s face. Waiting until after an act of violence occurs to respond, as they did on Aug. 19, is insufficient, unacceptable and dangerous. Chad Marlow it? Yes, healthcare facilities equally distributed to meet needs and maintain public health codes are vitally important. With so much star power residing in New York City — especially in the West Village — I wish it had been mobilized when it was truly needed and not after the fact. Shame on you, Susan Sarandon, for even appearing at this rally when you vocally opposed plans for expansion of St. Vincent’s in your neighborhood, which would have helped to prevent its closure. Mr. de Blasio (a good, smart guy) should choose his star power wisely. True fighters like Rosie Perez get their hands dirty when it really counts. I hope these folks continue to shine for this cause, especially when Yetta Kurland reinvigorates the fight to restore a hospital on the Lower West Side when she is elected city councilmember for District 3. Support from all constituents who work both in Hollywood and on Broadway is going to be needed; just as will be the support from our regular folks who operate the food trucks, the local restaurant workers, small business owners and residents that actually work or reside in this area. It was St. Vincent’s that served the needs of these average and often uninsured people for more than a century. Michael Kerr Liu pot plan sparks some thought To The Editor: Re “It’s time to end Pot Prohibition in New York City” (talking point, by John Liu, Aug. 22): People say Comptroller Liu’s proposal is inapplicable since only the state legislators could enact such a law. But he brings the conversation to the table. Some eye-opening statistics here, such as that arrests in the Bloomberg administration have been higher than those in the Giuliani administration, or at least equal. Yet the mayor claims support for loosening the laws on marijuana arrests and making them violations. The problem is, with stop-and-frisk, these kids get sent to Central Booking for having a small amount of pot in plain sight — after the officer, of course, forces them to empty their pockets after being frisked. If they fail to show up at court since they might not want to miss a day of work due to low family income, then the victim gets put in Central Booking for 24 to 48 hours, since not responding to a violation automatically generates a warrant. These individuals then even spend time in jail, missing out on their education, job and whatever else allows them to live somewhat comfortably and focus diligently on their careers. Upward mobility is often close to impossible for certain minority communities, and these arrests are the final nail in the coffin. Kudos to Liu for bringing this up. I might have just switched my vote.

Where was Capsis’s attorney? To The Editor: Re “Publisher slaps pol as mayoral campaigns spar over St. Vincent’s” (news article, Aug. 22): I was not surprised by the news about Mr. Capsis awaiting me upon recently returning from a vacation. We all have sad days in our lives, though, and do not resort to violence. I may sound harsh in condemning him, but his actions were real. Deborah Glick, whom I push hard in these pages, was the only person to have the courage to speak the truth, that Mr. Capsis should have been arrested on the spot. He slapped the face of a sitting state senator and then immediately committed a second assault. Most distressing, at least from what I could see in the video, was that his attorney did not step in immediately to prevent his actions, and worse yet, neither counseled nor physically restrained Mr. Capsis after his assault of the senator. I would have had him, 85 years old or not, in a headlock, to save him from himself, or at the least, to salvage his pending and now meritless case against the New York Police Department. Glick refers to the de Blasio camp as “Tea Partiers,” when it is amply clear that the hastily arranged Quinn response to a scheduled de Blasio event is what exacerbated the situation. Patrick Shields A window into Weiner’s world To The Editor: Re “Wounded Weiner just a symptom of society’s isolation” (talking point, by K Webster, Aug. 15): K Webster’s insights on Weiner’s isolation and our society feels absolutely, painfully true. Hers is the only thinking and feeling on Weiner that I’ve read anywhere, that allows us not to point fingers, but evokes an inclusive empathy that opens us to think about the how and why this occurred, the need to heal it, and what it means for us all. Thank you, K Webster. Suzanne W. Stout EDITORIAL Menin in Manhattan borough president election Continued from page 16 Menin has an impressive record of accomplishments, demonstrating leadership on so many important issues. Without her, Downtown would never have secured $200 million of 9/11 money originally slated for large utilities, but which the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. had been sitting on for years. The money had been forgotten by most, and it was Menin who raised the issue, rallied support and got money redirected. Occupy Wall Street was a gimme issue for progressives around the city and the world, but in the neighborhood surrounding Zuccotti Park, it was a thorny situation in which free speech and assembly rights had to be balanced against the need of residents and businesses not to be disrupted, and Menin led the effort to forge a compromise resolution at C.B. 1. The so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” actually a mosque and Islamic center in the same neighborhood as the World Trade Center, was something Menin and Board 1 could have easily ducked, but they stood up against calls for government interference into religion. Whether it came to fighting to move the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed trials and its security risks outside of Lower Manhattan or getting more desperately needed school space, Menin time and time again worked with others to get results. We have watched this community leader rise and learn and get better with time. She has a thoughtful plan to use the borough president’s budget to give community boards more resources to do comprehensive surveys to identify the greatest needs in each part of Manhattan, which should empower them to get more affordable housing, schools and better park space. Making urban planning more responsive to community needs is something that she has been thinking and talking about for years. We were also impressed with Councilmember Jessica Lappin, another candidate, who has put forward good ideas on land use and community board improvements. Councilmember Gale Brewer has real legislative accomplishments on important issues like paid sick leave and protecting small shops on the Upper West Side, and would probably be a good borough president. The fourth candidate, Councilmember Robert Jackson, was a leader in the effort to get a fair share of state education funds for the city, but his legislative record is not as strong as his two opponents in the Council. But none of those three have shown us they are likely to be as effective as Menin. We strongly endorse Julie Menin for borough president in the Sept. 10 primary. Suddenly fighting for hospitals To The Editor: Re “Publisher slaps pol as mayoral campaigns spar on St. Vincent’s” (news article, Aug. 22): Public Advocate Bill de Blasio while public advocate and as a city councilperson and when he was not in elected office was never at a hospital closing rally that I was ever at — and I have been to hundreds. Christine Quinn negotiated an emergency room for the Lower West Side. No one could save St. Vincent’s Hospital unless former Governor Dave Paterson gave up some state money, and he didn’t. So this new condos vs. hospitals campaign is hypocritical and false! Where were Susan Sarandon and Cynthia Nixon when people were fighting to keep St. Vincent’s open? Don’t be fooled by phony election propaganda! Give me a break. Ralph Palladino Choose your stars wisely To The Editor: Re “Publisher slaps pol as mayoral campaigns spar on St. Vincent’s” (news article, Aug. 22): Where was the star power when St. Vincent’s really needed August 29 - September 4, 2013 31 Photo by Clarissa-Jan Lim Joseph Hanania has started an online petition calling on the Parks Department to better maintain the East River Park tennis courts. Activist is set to serve Parks with petition on tennis courts By Clarissa-Jan Lim Despite the recent completion of years of renovation work in East River Park, the park’s tennis courts have been left neglected. Most of the courts have several-foot-long cracks on their surfaces — some even streching across the length of the court — with vegetation growing in the cracks. On certain of the court’s surfaces there are also dead spots that cause the balls to bounce oddly, according to Joseph Hanania, a Grand St. resident who frequently uses the tennis courts. But the problems don’t stop at the playing surface. “The cranks on the metal posts holding up the nets are often broken, resulting in absurdly low nets — which, for good measure, are often also riddled with holes,” he added. According to Hanania, one of the courts also is frequently flooded, even hours after a storm. People who want to play sometimes have to wait an hour before a court frees up, and the lack of lights to illuminate the courts at night makes the time available for a session even shorter. “Once it gets dark you can forget about playing,” Hanania said. The park’s upgrade has seen welcome additions, such as football and soccer fields, as well as a nicely redone, all-new promenade that boasts a view of Brooklyn across the water, but the tennis courts have been left in a state of disrepair. Hanania contacted the Parks Department more than a year ago regarding the courts’ poor conditions, but nothing came of his efforts. Fed up, he started a petition — currently boasting more than 60 signatures — urging Parks to make repairs to the courts. “People who are crowded out of Central Park due to long wait times have come to play here and are among the petition signers to date,” he told The Villager. “There is a shortage of courts in Manhattan, so those that exist should be kept in tip-top shape. But the East River courts are, by far, the shoddiest in the borough.” Hanania said he also hopes benches will be installed in between courts for changeovers, since in the summer the surface heats up and there is nowhere else but the court surface to sit on during a game change or a break. “We certainly have enough room for that over here,” he noted. The dilapidated conditions are not acceptable for those who pay for access to the tennis courts, in his view. A full-season permit for adults costs $200. “Even free, nonpermit-required courts are in better shape,” Hanania said. Hudson River Park, he noted, has two popular free tennis courts near Canal St. that are in good condition. Hanania is collecting more signatures on the petition before he sends it to Parks, “to show them that there’s widespread concern about this,” he said. The petition is online at http://www.change.org/petitions/nyc-parksdept-resurface-east-river-tennis-courts. 32 August 29 - September 4, 2013 Notice is hereby given that a license, number 1273127, for beer and wine, has been applied for by the undersigned to sell beer and wine at retail in a restaurant under the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law at 88 Reade St., aka 176 Church St., Corner Store 1, New York, NY 10013 for on premises consumption.
