HealthPlex already seeing about 60 patients each day BY LINCOLN ANDERSON

T

he Lenox Hill HealthPlex has been busy since opening two weeks ago, having already treated hundreds of patients. Among the more serious cases the new healthcare facility, at 30 Seventh Ave., has dealt with include a diner who suffered a severe allergic reaction to nuts, and a 97-year-old Village woman who fell at home, fractured her skull and had bleeding in her brain.

The freestanding emergency department has also already transported more than three dozen patients by ambulance to area hospitals for higher-level care — but this percentage actually has been lower than predicted. Speaking around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Alex Hellinger, the new West Village healthcare facility’s executive director, said the total number of patients the facility had seen so far was 600, with an average of from 50 to 60 per day. All the individuals were

treated within minutes of entering the HealthPlex, which has 26 patient rooms. “It’s steadily picking up,” Hellinger said of the patient volume. “It’s been going fantastic. I’ve been checking in with the patients who are here, and haven’t gotten a negative comment. People are very pleased.” As of that time, there had been a total of 39 patients — including the 97-year-old woman — who had needed HEALTHPLEX, continued on p. 27

Zephyr Teachout addressing the D.I.D. Executive Committee on Monday.

BY LINCOLN ANDERSON

I

n May, the Downtown Independent Democrats voted “no endorsement at this time” for governor and lieutenant governor in the September Democratic primary. The Working Families Party was endorsing the next day, and D.I.D. was curious to see how that would turn out. Andrew Cuomo went on to win the W.F.P. nod over Zephyr Teachout, who then quickly decided to challenge Cuomo in the Democratic primary. Taking up unfinished business, then, D.I.D. members convened this Monday night at club president Jeanne Wilcke’s Bleecker St. loft apartment to hear a brief presentation by Teachout, and reconsider if they would endorse. The meeting didn’t include the full D.I.D. membership, since some members are out of town now, but rather was just the club’s Executive Committee. Teachout — a first-time candidate and Fordham Law School professor, has been embraced by Downtown progressive clubs, having won the support of the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club, Village Independent Democrats and Coalition for a District Alternative. The week before, The New York Times published a bombshell Page 1 article, reporting that Governor Cuomo had hobbled his own now-defunct Moreland Commission from probing groups with ties to him or issues that might reflect poorly on him. Teachout has made fighting corruption a key campaign plank. After the Times article, she called on Cuomo to resign if it’s true that a top aide of his influenced the direction of the allegedly independent panel. On Monday, she said Cuomo is “under a dark cloud” right now, though she’s not ready yet to call what happened illegal. “I think we are at a really crucial point in our history,” Teachout said. Saying Cuomo has failed on his promise to clean up Albany, she said, “We are more beholden than ever to the oligarchs who say who gets tax breaks.” New York State has the most segregated schools in the nation, plus “a governor who will not answer if we will have fracking,” she added. She said she wants to help small businesses and prevent everything from becoming a “CVS, Duane

Reade or Bank of America, where every street looks the same.” New York must increase its renewable energy, she continued, saying, “We have all the sun and wind and water we need.” She admitted she’s an underdog. However, she said, “I am running to be governor, and I want to be governor. Asking Teachout about campaign finance reform, District Leader Jenifer Rajkumar noted that a dissenting Supreme Court justice in the Citizens United case had cited Teachout. “We are one justice away from overturning Citizens United,” Teachout responded, beaming a smile. Pete Gleason, a former City Council candidate, asked about “local corruption,” specifically, the William Rapfogel case, in which embezzled funds were found in the former Met Council president’s residences, which he shares with his wife, Judy Rapfogel, chief of staff to Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. Rapfogel last week was sentenced to three and a half to 10 years in jail. “How does $450,000 wind up in the closet of [Silver’s] chief of staff, and the guy falls on his sword, and it goes away?” Gleason asked. In response, Teachout recalled how railroad barons and industrialists once ran the country, noting that unions, among other things, weakened their power. The D.I.D. members then reconvened at Von lounge, across the street, to discuss if they would endorse. “Overwhelmingly, the committee voted to recommend that D.I.D. members, at the next full membership meeting, endorse Zephyr Teachout for governor and her running mate, Timothy Wu, for lieutenant governor,” Wilcke later reported. “The general membership will decide the final endorsement in late August.” Wilcke said club members were troubled by the now-defunct “secret M.O.U.” agreement hashed out between Governor Cuomo, the Hudson River Park Trust and the St. John’s Center owners to transfer $100 million of development rights from Pier 40 to the St. John’s site. Hydrofracking, plus the governor’s disbanding of the Moreland Commission, have been other issues of concern, she said. “Things didn’t seem right,” Wilcke said of the anti-corruption panel’s being canned. “Hydrofracking — we’re not sure what game is being played here.” Gleason quipped, “The only thing pure in New York is our drinking water.”

ithin six days, 669 people joined the effort to keep Dr. David Ores right where he is. Ores received word two weeks ago that he had just five days to vacate his office, at 189 E. Second St., due to outstanding commercial taxes that his landlord, Permanence LP, said he owed. He quickly set to work not only to contest the outstanding taxes in court but also to secure $30,917.76 — the amount due, according to his landlord — through an online crowdfunding effort. By the time of his Housing Court appearance on the morning of Tues., July 29, he had received $34,715 in donations via gofundme.com. By the time he left the courtroom, he and his landlord had agreed to enter into negotiations under which Ores will pay a still-undetermined amount of the back taxes, while avoiding any further threat of eviction from the space he has occupied for the last two years. “I want to pay my fair share,” Ores said after leaving the courtroom. Permanence LP representatives could not be reached for comment by press time. The two parties have until Sept. 5 to reach an agreement, which will require the landlord to provide a certificate of tax before negotiations on a settlement can begin. Ores said the dispute began after he returned from a trip to New Orleans only to receive the five-day eviction notice. In his absence, he had missed a court appearance, of which he said he was unaware, resulting in Permanence LP receiving a default judgment against him. After contacting his landlord, Ores received a letter back in which the owner agreed to nullify the judgment. The ease with which his landlord helped him schedule a new court date demonstrated a desire to retain him as a tenant, Ores said. However, the cooperation came at a strange time, considering the ongoing legal case brought by Permanence LP against him, he added. “That’s a funny way of showing TheVillager.com

it,” Ores said. “I don’t think they’re being hostile,” he added. “I just think we should just have a payment plan.” Going to court could have been avoided, Ores said, had the landlord let him know within the last two years that he was expected to pay commercial taxes on his space. That he only found out at the very last minute that he would have to pay up or relocate his medical practice didn’t help the situation, either, he added. “This all happened because I did not have $30,000 in my pocket, and then the eviction guy came,” Ores said. Since hanging his shingle in the East Village, Ores has garnered media attention and community support for his “pay what you can” sliding-scale patient fees. Sporting heavily tattooed arms and a quick wit, he offered free food and medical care after Hurricane Sandy. In short, he represents a different type of doctor in a city filled with professional peers making the big bucks. Asked by The Villager how he makes a living with such a business model, Ores explained that he keeps costs down by running the office without any staff, while also cutting off those patients who have the means, and make promises, but ultimately do not pay for his services. Josh Bisker, one of his patients, said Ores is an “East Village folk hero” whose “brusqueness” accentuates a certain type of gritty altruism. Contributors to the online fundraising effort added small notes of gratitude explaining how, in their time of need, Dr. Dave spared neither expense nor effort in helping them. Such a collective effort aimed at keeping him doing what he does makes Ores feel as if he were Jimmy Stewart’s character in “It’s a Wonderful Life,” he said. “This man saved me several times,” posted a contributor under the name Rex Roberts. “One time I fell over and needed 12 stitches on my knee. I had no insurance and Dr. Dave saved the day... . He helped my friend Carlos with his pinkeye, and he didn’t have any papers or insurance either.”

n a furious shootout in the heart of Greenwich Village, a suspect wanted on a warrant for child-molestation charges in California was killed Monday during a closerange gun battle with three officers inside a W. Fourth St. smoke shop. Charles Mozdir, 32, had been on the lam since 2012, after he was accused of molesting friends’ 7-yearold child. After the parents’ complaint, police searched his apartment and reportedly found images of child porn and bestiality on his cell phone and computers. Mozdir was arrested but made his $250,000 bail, then skipped out on his next court date. Authorities recently tracked him to the Smoking Culture NYC store, a bong shop at 177 W. Fourth St., where he had worked for a year. He was living on E. 11th St., with his black Lab, Lucky. Mozdir was considered armed and dangerous, and reportedly had vowed not to be taken alive. Around 1 p.m., members of the Regional Fugitive Task Force — including two U.S. marshals and a New York Police Department detective — entered the store to execute the warrant. According to reports, the detective first went into the store to check if he was there, and then left. They then returned to arrest him, and the gun battle broke out.

Police blocked off Jones St. on Monday afternoon south of the shooting scene.

While grappling with Muniz, Mozdir pulled a .32-caliber five-shot revolver out of his pocket and got off five shots, striking at least two officers. The officers fired about 10 times, hitting Mozdir six to eight times. One or two shots hit Detective Mario Muniz in his bulletproof vest — the vest likely saving his life — but another round got him in the abdomen below the vest. One marshal was shot in the buttocks. The other was wounded in the elbow, but it wasn’t immediately clear if it was by a bullet or flying glass.

Emergency medics tried to resuscitate Mozdir at the scene, but couldn’t save him. He was taken to the new Lenox Hill HealthPlex emergency department, on W. 12th St. and Seventh Ave., where he was pronounced dead on arrival. All three wounded officers were removed to Bellevue Hospital. Muniz, the most seriously injured, required surgery, but he was reported in stable condition. The formerly clean-cut Mozdir had disguised his appearance by growing long hair and a bushy beard. Police

Commissioner Bill Bratton said the fugitive man had an additional 20 bullets in his pocket at the time of his death. Although the trail for Mozdir had gone cold, a recent episode of CNN’s “The Hunt,” with John Walsh, in which Mozdir was featured, resulted in a tip from a Florida woman who was close to Mozdir, who gave them his cell phone number. Authorities tracked him to the Village store by pinging his cell phone. According to CNN, armed with a search warrant, authorities seized items from Mozdir’s apartment Monday night, including a Gateway computer, an Acer laptop, a West Virginia driver’s license and prescription pills. Mozdir had shared with others his plan to one day kill the young boy’s father for turning him in, Walsh said. “And now they don’t have to worry if this guy’s coming back to hurt the family or hurt their little boy,” the TV crime-show host said. “So there’s a big sigh of relief tonight that Charles Mozdir is off this planet.” Mozdir reportedly was also accused in an earlier child assault case when he was babysitting a young boy, who told his mother. “The Hunt” premiered on CNN on July 13. “This is our first capture,” Walsh said. “I’m very sorry that those police officers got wounded in the line of duty, but this is one more lowlife that’s off the streets.” TheVillager.com

POLICE BLOTTER Fought with cops

On Thurs., July 24, at the Up and Down bar and nightclub, at 224 W. 14th St., a man was charged with stealing a patron’s wallet and spending money on her credit cards. A female victim, 26, stated that while she was using the women’s restroom at the club, an unidentified man approached her and tried to engage her in conversation, according to police reports. After the man followed her from the restroom when she left to rejoin her friends, the victim remembered putting her wallet down and leaving it unattended. An hour after she left the bar, she realized that her wallet was missing, and alerted club management. A female bartender, 30, reported that she observed the same man using one of the victim’s credit cards to purchase drinks, and allegedly signing a fraudulent signature to pass himself off as the card’s holder. Aaron Lorenzo, 25, was arrested at 2 a.m., and was charged with grand larceny, felony. In addition to the wallet, valued at $500, he stole two debit cards, two credit cards, a Virginia driver’s license, and $400 in cash, police said.

A man was slapped with felony charges for assault when he resisted arrest and reportedly fought with police officers on Saturday. While officers were trying to clear the block of a large dispute across the street from 168 Bleecker St. at 4:32 a.m. that morning, a man later identified as Dan Smith, 24, reportedly “squared up in a fighting stance,” refused to disperse, and shoved an officer in the chest, according to the police report. When an officer went to make the arrest, Smith kept bouncing around and screaming, “I’m not going down!” The officer struggled to get the man pinned against the patrol car as he resisted arrest. In so doing, the officer’s wrist got stuck under Smith, and after the arrest was finally made, the officer reportedly complained of “substantial pain and swelling.” The officer was later removed to the new Lenox Hill HealthPlex, at 30 Seventh Ave., for treatment of his hand.

Meatpacking pick At 2 a.m. on Fri., July 25, two patrons of the Gansvoort Hotel reported getting pickpocketed by an unknown man. A female victim, 23, stated that someone removed property from her purse without permission. She was reportedly missing three credit cards; her IDs; her gold iPhone 5S, valued at $600; and a Tom Burch cellphone case, valued at $60, and matching wallet, valued at $90. Later, a male victim, 34, said that his black iPhone 5, valued at $500, was taken from his pocket and was missing. Hotel security observed Howard McCormick, 48, leaving the place with the alleged stolen items in hand, and held him for police. Police arrived on scene to recover the stolen property, and charged McCormick with grand larceny.

Citi Bike bust At 12:47 p.m. on Saturday, police observed a man disobey two steady red traffic signals while riding a Citi Bike in front of 850 Broadway, near 14th St. Upon further investigation, the $1,200 bike was found to be stolen, and Frank Calaluce, 42, was arrested for grand larceny. He could not produce a valid receipt for the bike, which was determined to have last been docked at a Citi Bike station on E. 10th St. When police searched Calaluce, they found two hypodermic needles with “alleged heroin residue” in his backpack, according to the police report. They also found a sunglasses case, with a clear Ziploc bag of alleged marijuana inside.

ly cross against the light” at the Christopher St. intersection, and almost get hit by their car. When the two officers stepped out of the vehicle and asked for identification, one man complained, while the other reportedly refused, and fought with them. Solomon Lambert, 32, reportedly punched and kicked the officers, causing injuries to them. While handcuffed, he continued to resist being placed in the patrol car, and “required leg shackles,” according to the police report. One officer was kicked in the left hand, and took a bus to the Lenox Hill HealthPlex for treatment. Lambert was arrested and faces felony charges for assault.

The victim sated he was walking on E. 13th St., when the two men snatched his iPod, Beats headphones and a gold chain he wore around his neck. When he tried to take back his possessions, one of the men allegedly punched him in the face, causing lacerations. The victim followed the pair and alerted police. A female witness, 67, confirmed his story. Christopher Wilder and Richard Silva, both 19, tried to run, but were arrested by police. They were charged with robbery. Police recovered the stolen items — the iPod, valued at $150; the Beats headphones, valued at $275; and a gold chain, valued at $100.

After more than 20 years doing business on Sullivan St., Jerome Audureau now hopes to sell his Once Upon a Tart store to the operators of Navy, allowing them to expand their new Soho hot spot.

owners made interior changes, sprucing up and modernizing the place. However, in the spring, Navy opened up its French windows and doors, and blared loud music — immediately aggravating neighbors. In addition to the noise, neighbors were incensed at the increased number of people loitering and smoking outside on the block — especially at night. “It really got the neighbors angry,” said Sean Sweeney, director of the Soho Alliance. He went on to describe Abramcyk’s involvement with Beatrice Inn, which the Soho activist described as a “very controversial place.” The W. 10th St. nightspot shut down in 2009, after three years of operation. One of the people supporting the Sullivan St. neighbors is actually from the West Village, which is unusual, Sweeney noted. The resident used to live across the street from the Beatrice Inn, and having endured that experience, reportedly “doesn’t want it to happen to anyone else,” according to Sweeney. Meanwhile, a neighbor whose apartment is across from Navy described it as a “nightlife kind of place that is impossible for residents to live with.” The woman, who asked to remain anonymous, said the restaurant’s loud music and patrons wake her up every night. Despite tense relations between Navy and Sullivan St. residents, the restaurant partners are now trying to expand. They are looking to buy an adjacent bakery and cafe, Once Upon a Tart, a neighborhood-friendly and beloved establishment that has been on the street for more than 20 years. Meanwhile, the pastry shop’s longtime owner, Jerome Audureau, is looking to get out. Audureau has reportedly said he is “exhausted” with keeping the business running, in particular, citing the soaring rent, which has ballooned from $2,000 a month when he first opened the business to $20,000 today. “I cannot deal with expenses anymore — it’s the economy,” he told The Villager. The store was his “ultimate dream,” so after being in business for so long, Audureau described it as a “sad situation” that he had to leave. “Everyone loves the Frenchman Jerome,” said Sweeney, who called the bakery “Soho’s answer to Starbucks.” But, it’s a fact that, as elsewhere Downtown, powerful forces have mom-and-pop stores in their crosshairs.

Audureau was reportedly offered a large sum of money from Navy’s Abramcyk for the space. But the pastry store owner said he could not disclose any fi nancial information, except that he would be using most of the cash to pay off his rent arrears. “It’s a rescue transaction,” he said, explaining that during the six months the space had been on the market, Abramcyk was the only one to make an offer. “He’s going to carry on the spirit of the bakery,” Audureau said, “otherwise it’s going to disappear.” However, Abramcyk needs a liquor license — which would allow him to double revenue by serving drinks, said Audureau, who supported Abramcyk’s application to the State Liquor Authority. Once Upon a Tart includes two storefronts: a retail bakery to the north, and a cafe to the south. Abramcyk reportedly plans to keep the bakery open until 6 p.m. or 7 p.m., then close the space for private parties. The cafe is planned to be a separate restaurant, open until midnight, with a bar. “Everyone loves Jerome, but eventually it’s not going to be the same,” said the resident living across from Navy. “But what can we do?” The sale of Once Upon a Tart was set for last month. But because of opposition to the liquor license application from neighbors, it has been postponed for several months. Audureau said he wished the community could come to an agreement with Abramcyk. “They all love me,” he said, “but they need to understand what is crucial right now.” Sweeney said that losing the bakery would undoubtedly “alter the character of the block.” “It’s a good strategy [for Navy] to incorporate SULLIVAN ST., continued on p. 9 TheVillager.com

a beloved neighborhood institution as a Trojan horse to introduce a new party venue,” he said. On Tues., July 1, 35 local residents attended a meeting hosted by the Soho Alliance on the issue of Abramcyk’s expansion plan. As a grassroots organization, Sweeney said, the group takes its directions from residents. “The overwhelming opposition was clear” to the expansion plan, he said, so the Soho Alliance took a position on the issue. After the meeting, the neighbors began gathering information on the previous situation at Beatrice Inn and also prepared a map showing all the restaurants in the Sullivan St. area — “a clear case of liquor oversaturation,” as Sweeney put it. Beatrice Inn, where Paul Sevigny would deejay, though a small venue, was a huge hot spot for fashionistas and the party crowd. But the location — in the middle of a quiet residential neighborhood, similar to Sullivan St. — proved the club’s undoing, that plus lack of an adequate fire exit. A week after the Soho Alliance meeting, on July 8, possibly in response to the growing and organized opposition, Abramcyk reportedly withdrew his liquor-license application at the last minute from the agenda of the Community Board 2 S.L.A. Committee meeting. Nevertheless, “everybody on the street” still showed up at the meeting, according to a resident. The opponents — about three-quarters of the people in the room — stayed to express their frustration with the situation on Sullivan St., even after it was announced that the item had been pulled from the meeting agenda. Abramcyk reportedly claimed that he wanted to wait a few months to try and show neighbors that he could “rehabilitate Navy,” according to Sweeney. “All the new liquor licenses will tip the balance of the block from residential to commercial,” the Soho leader stated. “And the Soho Alliance is worried that the sleepy block will turn into another restaurant row.” A key issue in this case is the 500foot law, which states that if three or more existing liquor-licensed businesses are within 500 feet of each other, the applicant must prove that granting a new license within this area is in the “public interest.” “We don’t have a public interest in more licenses,” McGee declared. “It’s not serving the public good. This license is part of an overall hyper-gentrification of our neighborhood that takes away from the voices of neighbors and small businesses.” TheVillager.com

Once Upon a Tart actually includes two storefronts, one on either side of the residential building’s entrance.

Added Sweeney, “Serving good food on its own does not constitute serving the public interest.” He said he thinks Navy faces “an uphill battle.” “The Sullivan St. neighbors are some of the most organized I’ve worked with,” Sweeney said. “They intend to hire lawyers to fight this.” According to McGee, however, Navy has reportedly “revised its behavior in past weeks,” even to the point that a future compromise may be possible. “Past businesses have addressed neighborhood concerns,” she said. “Hopefully, Navy will do the same.” A spokesperson said Navy owners Abramcyk and Elstein declined to comment for this article. At its full board meeting on Thurs., July 24, C.B. 2 voted to recommend that the S.L.A. not modify the existing beer-and-wine license at the 135 Sullivan St. location, until the applicant has appeared before C.B. 2. The C.B. 2 S.L.A. Committee’s resolution, which was approved by the full board, noted that 25 neighbors had shown up at its July 8 meeting to voice their opposition to the application. On another front, S.V.N. is also challenging the legality of the development rights sale from the God’s Love We Deliver site, at Sixth Ave. and Spring St., to the new One Vandam luxury project just to its north.

Professor Irwin Corey, “The World’s Foremost Expert,” celebrated his 100th birthday Tuesday evening at the Actors Temple, on W. 47th St. Among the more than 100 friends in attendance at the stand-up great’s b’day bash — many of them actors and comics — were Joe Franklin, who told a few jokes; Gilbert Gottfried; Randy Credico, the comedian turned Democratic governor candidate —  yes, he is on the ballot! — Larry “Ratso” Sloman, author of autobiographies on Bob Dylan and Mike Tyson and ghost writer for Howard Stern; Jim Drougas, owner of Unoppressive, NonImperialist Bargain Books, on Carmine St.; vaudeville scion Janna Ritz; songwriter Irving Drake, not doing too shabby himself at age 95; Villager Jessica Berk, of Residents in Distress; and of course, Rabbi Jill, of the Actors Temple. The event was organized by Bob Greenberg, and Joe Friendly filmed the whole thing to be made into a movie. There were two open mics, one at Corey’s table, and a steady stream of jokes and responses. Corey told the one about when the Communist Party wouldn’t let him join in the 1940s — because he was too much of an anarchist. Corey wore a few different hats, literally, including one with his famous opening line, “However.” “It was just fun,” said Drougas, who has been a lifetime fan of Corey and a friend for the past 15 years. “There was just a whole sweetness throughout the evening. I’ve been to a lot of his birthday parties, but this was special.”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Woo! Do the bump(s)! To The Editor: Re “New E.V. slow zone, with 20 m.p.h. limit, is fast approaching” (news article, July 24): The speed bumps will be launching platforms for skateboarders and may screw up snow removal. But over all, for an old codger like me with poor sight and hearing, the 20-mile-perhour zone could be a lifesaver. Richard Kopperdahl

Original people so rare To The Editor: Re “Vivien Leone, heiress, arts patron who lived large” (obituary, July 24): Mary Reinholz does a good job here of writing about this art patron. It

always seems that when someone like this dies, she was the last one like that. Original, interesting people are rare, and one worries there won’t be any more such people as time goes on. Hopefully, that’s not the case. Lionel Rolfe

Key feminist contributor To The Editor: Re “Vivien Leone, heiress, arts patron who lived large” (obituary, July 24): Vivien was at the 1972 Democratic Convention during the early, passionate years of the feminist movement. McGovern, the candidate, spoke to supporters, listing all he would do to help women — but said nothing about abortion rights, the big issue of the time. I stood up and asked him

why. I don’t remember his answer. But Vivien did, and she wrote about it in the Village Voice. Years later, I interviewed her for the Schlesinger Library’s History of NOW project, though Vivien had never been a NOW member, as far as I knew. So her bio is at the famous Schlesinger Library in Boston. And she deserves to be there since she made many great contributions to the feminist movement.   Jacqui Ceballos

A.G. orders Croman goon to stop harassing tenants CROMAN, continued from p. 1

time. “While we cannot comment on potential or ongoing investigations, the attorney general is committed to ensuring that no one — no matter how rich or well connected — is above the law,” Schneiderman’s office said in a statement. “We are prepared to take action against landlords who use illegal tactics to force rent-regulated tenants out of their homes to raise rents.” The cease-and-desist order states that Falconite engaged in illegal “harassment of tenants, misleading and deceptive business practices,” as well as conducting “tenant relocation services without a license.” Falconite has reportedly verbally abused tenants, and pestered them incessantly to accept buyout offers, even following them to work. Among the ex-cop’s reported tactics, according to residents of a Croman building on E. 18th St., are entering tenants’ apartments under false pretenses, demanding identification and photographing their possessions, in order to allege later that their primary residence is elsewhere. “He’s got a whole bag of tricks,” said Cynthia Chaffee of Falconite. Chafee’s battle with the notorious landlord has included seven court appearances since Croman — who has been ranked on top-10 lists of the city’s worst landlords — bought 346 E. 18th St. in 1999. She has refused a six-figure buyout offer from Croman. And she has wrangled with him over accepting Section 8 housing vouchers, as well as addressing 49 outstanding building violations in the apartment that she has occupied for 37 years. Neighbors give accounts of fending off superfluous legal actions from Croman, who owns about 150 residential buildings in Manhattan, as

Peter Chaffee, left, and Pauline Grivas, tenants of an E. 18th St. building owned by Steven Croman where Anthony Falconite has allegedly harassed tenants.

well as badgering from Falconite. Sisters Shalimi and Nalimi Valanju have also had their run-ins with Falconite. When Shalimi visited another sister in India earlier this year, a man visited the apartment she has occupied for 50 years. Family members regularly stay in the apartment during Shalimi’s trips in order to keep an eye on things, but they soon found themselves objects of suspicion. “He identified himself as ‘Anthony,’ and said that he was working for the landlord’s management, that he needed to come in and look at the apartment for needed repair work,” Shalimi’s niece Ajay Shirsat stated in an affidavit. As soon as he entered the apartment, Falconite reportedly began taking photos of the interior, examining prescription medications and demanding that those present provide ID, the affidavit states. He then demanded that Shirsat and another family member call their aunts — despite the 11-hour time difference — so that Falconite could determine whether they were the apartment’s primary residents. In buildings with less than six

units, a rent-controlled controlled apartment can become market rate if a landlord can prove the tenant does not occupy it as a primary residence, and then evict the tenant. (In larger buildings, vacant rent-controlled units become rent-stabilized.) Falconite’s LinkedIn profile includes 215 endorsements for “private investigations” and 95 for “interrogation.” A Croman representative and Falconite did not respond to requests for comment by press time. While 19 neighbors in Chaffee’s building have opted to leave since 1999, she and her husband, Peter Chaffee, continue to fight back through both a massive file documenting their interactions with Croman and Falconite, as well as an online password-protected hub where about three dozen fellow tenants communicate and organize as part of the Stop Croman Coalition. Yet, she said, there is a price to pay for their efforts beyond the $20,475.96 in back rent her landlord claims she owes by Aug. 1. Chaffee moved into the one-bedroom apartment when she was 25. The formerly airy apartment that once sported nice furniture, gradually filled with what

Anthony Falconite.

today stands at 75 cubic feet of documents relating to her struggles with the landlord. And then there is the internal toll. “He ruined my life,” she said. Long strips of heavy paper remain on her living room floor, artifacts of the recent paint job that replaced ubiquitous cracks with fresh ivory paint. This recent turn for the better for Chaffee was a long time coming from a landlord who, in the meantime, had plenty of renovation work going on in apartments above and below her. Meanwhile, she had water dripping from her light fixture, as well as a stretch of 55 days without gas service in the winter of 2011. Between that January and September 2013 she also experienced 113 days without heat or hot water. Sudden loss of utility service is nothing new, but Chaffee said it often comes without even an explanation from the landlord. Most recently, the day after Falconite was slapped with a cease-and-desist order, she discovered her phone service had been mysteriously shut off. “These are not unique stories,” said Shalimi Valanju. “Thirty, 40 people have similar stories. The aim of it all is getting tenants to take buyouts so that Croman can rent it.”

Petrosino plaintiffs roll out bike-site appeal BY LINCOLN ANDERSON

T

he Citi Bike battle of Petrosino Square is up and rolling once again. Opponents of siting a bike-share station in the Soho park recently filed an appeal in the State Supreme Court Appellate Division. Last October, State Supreme Court Justice Cynthia Kern ruled against the plaintiffs, writing in her decision, “Bicycling is an important form of recreation that has had a proper ‘park purpose’ for many years. The infra-

12

July 31, 2014

structure to support bicycling, such as bike paths, bicycle racks and rest stations, are common incidents in parks.” The plaintiffs in the appeal, filed on July 7, include the Friends of Petrosino Square; Lieutenant Joseph Petrosino Lodge No. 285 of the Sons of Italy in America; the Soho Alliance; Minerva Durham, of Spring Studio Life Drawing; the Chinatown Civic Association; the Noho Neighborhood Association, and former Councilmember Alan Gerson. The suit is lodged against the city’s Parks and Transportation departments,

including former Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan. It’s known as an Article 78 lawsuit, meaning it’s a challenge of a city governmental action — in this case, the decision to site a station for the phenomenally popular Citi Bike program on the small park triangle. The appeal contends it was wrong to have located the bike-share docks in the square, which is a “small, but treasured park” and “a park of vital importance to the local community.” Responding to Kern’s ruling, the

appeal counters that the bike kiosk does not “serve a valid park purpose,” adding that Citi Bike is a transportation — not a recreational — program, since it’s based on the premise of short trips of a half hour or 45 minutes. “...[P]etitioners respectfully request that this court reverse the trial court’s denial...of the petition and compel respondents to remove the bike-share kiosk from Petrosino Square Park,” the appeal concludes. The opponents’ attorney is Jim Walden of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP. TheVillager.com


Carey Vennema, 93, leader in Save the Village effort OBITUARY BY BETSY HUMES

C

arey Vennema died peacefully in his home in the West Village on July 24, surrounded by his family. He was 93. Vennema was an iconic Village character, recognized by his wild head of hair as he sped along the neighborhood’s streets on his threespeed bicycle, legal briefs strapped into the child seat. An eccentric intellectual activist, he found his calling in community engagement to protect the artistic, offbeat and tolerant West Village where he made his home. He was born March 18, 1921, to Mildred Carey and Augustus Whiton Vennema in Passaic, N.J. He attended the Passaic Collegiate School, and graduated from the Choate School and Amherst College. He received his law degree from New York University School of Law in 1958. Vennema was a World War II veteran, having trained in the French-speaking cryptologic unit of the U.S. Army. During law school, he met Mary Holly Webb, then a student at Union Theological Seminary, and the two married in 1956 and lived together in Greenwich Village. Following law school, he became involved with numerous West Village civic organizations. Evicted from his brownstone apartment on Charles St., which was razed to make way for an apartment building, he understood first-hand the threats facing his neighborhood during that era: Real estate development, rising rents and urban renewal projects were causing the disappearance of the bohemian lifestyle and the marginalization of the artistic community. To combat the relentless pressure from real estate developers, he joined Save the Village. Working with Ed Koch on the group’s Attorneys Committee, Vennema passionately pushed the organization’s agenda to fight evictions, seek rent protection and lobby for legislative and zoning amendments to preserve the architecture and character of the Village. As Robert Moses targeted the Village and surrounding neighborhoods for urban renewal, Vennema worked with Jane Jacobs to defend the streets and blocks of the Village through grassroots efforts, mobilizing the expertise of local residents — from engineers to politicians to real estate agents. Vennema and his colleagues meticulously surveyed the area to document house, street and block conditions, and also used demographic information about residents to refute claims of urban blight

in their neighborhood. His innovative use of tax records to disprove claims of urban blight was later recognized by Jane Jacobs as a key strategy to vanquishing Robert Moses’ plan to demolish large swaths of the Village. Seeking to maintain the Village’s bohemian culture, Vennema worked with Carol Greitzer as treasurer of the Committee for Artist Housing. He served as the lead attorney for the group, securing support of local assemblymembers and the Department of Buildings to amend the building code to allow artists to live legally in their studios. This amendment resulted in the initial conversion project at 799 Greenwich St., which served as a blueprint for artist housing at Westbeth and later, Soho and Tribeca. On April 29, 1969, 10 years after the establishment of Save the Village, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission made the groundbreaking decision to declare a 65-block area of Greenwich Village a historic district, the largest of its kind in the United States, and the prototype for other neighborhoods, such as Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope and others across the country, preserving historic neighborhoods for future generations. Putting his expertise in zoning to service for his beloved summer community on Swan’s Island, Maine, Vennema worked with the island’s selectmen to draft the first Shoreland Zoning Ordinance and Clam Ordinance to preserve and protect the island’s natural resources. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Holly; his children, Amy Vennema and Betsy Humes, of Park Slope, Brooklyn, Willa Vennema, of Portland, Maine, and Kenneth Vennema, of Sugar Land, Texas; 10 grandchildren and an extended family of loving in-laws. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Elder Care Outreach of Swan’s Island c/o Donna Wiegel.

Printing House workers keep pressing for union BY SERGEI KLEBNIKOV

FILE PHOTO

rom the outside, the West Village’s Printing House is known for ranking among the city’s top tier of luxury residential buildings. However, underneath the surface at 421 Hudson St., the building’s workers have been locked in a bitter labor struggle that has now dragged on for more than a year. Workers went on strike for several days in June. With the support of local union 32BJ SEIU, they hope that their cries for better wages, benefits and healthcare will finally be answered. “We’re still fighting to get recognized and get our voices heard,” said Arturo Vergara, a longtime concierge at the building and one of the effort’s leaders. The workers have been organizing since August 2013, and held their first rally that September. Over the past year, the union has filed several unfair labor practice charges, according to a 32BJ spokesperson. One charge was unlawful surveillance, in which the superintendent of the building allegedly photographed the workers — and tenants who support them — who attended rallies outside the building on several occa-

According to 32BJ, there has been a huge show of support for the workers by the tenants. Tenants have been very active, both by attending rallies and advocating for the workers via fliers and meetings inside the building, the union spokesperson said. The most recent rally occurred on the afternoon of Mon., July 21, an hour before the board convened for its residents meeting, in part to discuss the issue with the staff. The workers mobilized in front of the Printing House, before marching over to a nearby church where the meeting was held. At the residents meeting, tenants in 48 out of roughly 70 occupied units signed postcards asking the board to invite the workers in and hear them out. “The workers at the Printing House are proud to have the support of so many tenants, but are extremely frustrated that the condo board continues to be deaf to their requests for improved working conditions,” said Kyle Bragg, secretary-treasurer of 32BJ, in a statement. “They work hard, some have been there more than a decade, and $12 an hour is just not enough to raise a family and survive in New York. They need decent wages and healthcare benefits, and there is no question that this luxury building, where apartments go for millions of dollars, can afford to pay them fairly.” The next steps are yet to be determined, but Vergara expressed hope that the board would finally deal with the union and meet with the workers to hear them out, despite the board’s stonewalling so far. “Every day, I see my colleagues struggling to pay a bill or a mortgage,” Vergara said. “We’re doing this for our families.”

about Café Habana, as well, although it wasn’t mentioned in your article. They seem particularly egregious in their co-option of public space. The busy sidewalk there is narrow and they not only have enormous tree benches up, but they generally pile up bags and bags of reeking garbage on the sidewalk hours before they close for business. They also “host” an in-street bicycle corral that is supposedly for public use. But the fact of the matter is that every time I pass by it, it is filled with their private delivery bikes.

It’s an uncomfortable place to pass by: filthy, noisy, smelly, constraining. Kudos to Community Board 2 for finally taking action on tree benches.

t’s interesting to speculate what the history of American theatre would have been if the movie industry in Hollywood had not come along to lure away some of its best talents. A primary case in point is writer-director-producer Preston Sturges, best known today for his unprecedented (and never repeated) run of stunningly brilliant screwball comedies, encompassing “The Great McGinty” (1940), “Christmas in July” (1940), “The Lady Eve” (1941), “Sullivan’s Travels” (1941), “The Palm Beach Story” (1942), “The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek” (1944) and “Hail, the Conquering Hero” (1944). Sturges had begun as a Broadway playwright whose early success was so impressive he was whisked to the west coast almost from the start, spending a decade as one of the industry’s most prolific and reliable screenwriters before being allowed to sit in the director’s chair. His most notable screenwriting effort from this early phase was 1933’s “The Power and the Glory.” said to have been TheVillager.com

a major influence on Orson Welles’ “Citizen Kane.” But the script that started it all was Sturges’ second play, “Strictly Dishonorable” — which ran on Broadway for 16 months (1929-1931) and was adapted into a 1931 movie starring Paul Lukas and Sidney Fox (and again, in 1951, with Ezio Pinza and Janet Leigh. Reportedly written in only six days, “Strictly Dishonorable” possesses all the themes in embryo we would later associate with Sturges’ classics: sexual danger, class tension, sympathy for the “little guy” and a hero who is living a lie. Further, it is populated with a range of comedy types we recognize from his later work: a comical Italian bartender, an Irish cop, a crooked judge, an uptight WASP and a girl who is in the mood

for love. The latter is at the center of “Strictly Dishonorable.” An impoverished Mississippi debutante wanders into a New York speakeasy one night with her controlling, asinine fiancé. There, she falls in love with a famous opera singer (a habitual seducer), breaks up with her boyfriend, and agrees to spend the night on the singer’s couch. The big question on everyone’s minds: “Will she or won’t she [have sex]?” In 1931, sex out of wedlock was almost universally frowned upon, at least officially. To live “in sin” could mean a woman’s downfall. Sturges’ script is a rich mix of French farce, with an Ibsen/ Shaw style problem play, and (in the first act) the DISHONORABLE, continued on p.16 July 31, 2014

kind of “saloon theatre” we associate with O’Neill and Saroyan. The Attic Theater Company’s pitch-perfect production of “Strictly Dishonorable” (now playing at The Flea through August 10) manages to hit all the play’s diverse notes and fill it with joy and life besides. Director Laura Braza not only comprehends the play’s themes, but in practice proves that she un-

derstands one of Sturges’ primary geniuses: the undeniable fact that in theatre (and radio, television and film), casting is everything. As Isabelle, the wayward Belle, Keilly McQuail is an absolute find, surfing the comedy to be found in Sturges’ lines like the biggest of Big Kahunas. Her mastery of comic timing is riveting. It’s a quality we normally associate with more seasoned, older actors. Her skills could keep McQuail working for

decades. By contrast, Michael Labbadia (as the opera singer) gives a performance that is as much about heart as it is about craft, putting us in direct touch with the romantic elements of Sturges’ vision. This is a script that comes within a hair’s breadth of tragedy, and Labbadia’s performance is the element that keeps us in mind of that fact. As the loveable, meddling Judge Dempsey, John Robert Tillotson could be straight from a Sturg-

es film himself. On the other hand, Thomas Christopher Matthews, in the thankless role as the weaselly, unlikable fiancé, seems less like a Sturges actor than, say, Rob Lowe in the Peter Bogdonovich Sturges tribute “Illegally Yours.” (While the performances in this show were uniformly first-rate, Matthews and some of the other younger actors in the cast need to get over to the barber shop, tout suite. Show up to the stock exchange or the station house in 1931 with hair halfway down your neck, or, for pity’s sake, a beard, gang, and you would cause an absolute commotion — or at the very least, an eruption of ridicule.) Overall, this ensemble is riveting to watch, and it’s at the level of playing we embrace this production the most. Yet as moving as Labbadia is towards the end of the play, I do think he and director Braza have missed a major aspect of the earlier beats. Count Ruvo is a Casanova, an “operator.” He has designs on Isabelle’s “virtue,” and therein lies the play’s arc — as his love for the girl is so great, he makes the epic journey all the way to gentlemanliness. We need to see the devil in him before he becomes an angel. But this is the kind of thing that occurs to one on the way home from the theatre. While you’re there, you’ll simply be transfixed by the world made by Sturges, Braza and her cast.

n our tech-obsessed culture, nearly everything has Internet capabilities — even if there seems to be no reason for it. Our phones, video game consoles and televisions are wired to the World Wide Web 24/7. Hardly a second goes by without us having immediate access to the Internet if we so choose. And it seems, increasingly, like we want to spend our lives online — from sharing clickbait articles and viral videos, to binging on Buzzfeed quizzes and Candy Crush. But how many of us would consider the time consumed by our frivolous online habits a serious problem? The new documentary “Web Junkie” takes a look at what happens when a culture treats excessive Internet usage as a serious mental health issue. In China, the use of the Internet for non-work or studying-related purposes for six or more hours daily has been classified as a psychological disorder. In order to combat this affliction, which affects mostly teenage boys who play online games, China has built hundreds of rehabilitation facilities. Boys arrive at these facilities (usually tricked or drugged by their parents) and are subjected to boot camp discipline, rigorous schooling and lectures — often, for months. Documentarians Shosh Shlam and Hilla Medalia gained access to one such facility in Daxing, a

suburb of Beijing, for the filming of “Web Junkie.” By following a few teens — two named Hope and Nicky, in particular — at various stages of their treatment, the filmmakers examine the personal toll the camps and their programs take on patients and families, as well as what the issue of “Internet addiction” means for China as a whole. Though the concept of Internet addiction rehab facilities might seem absurd at best, and gross overkill at worst to uninitiated Western audiences, “Web Junkie” is admirably ambiguous when it comes to addressing the issues at hand. This non-judgmental stance is wise, in that it allows audiences to consider the legitimacy of every party’s claims. It’s easy to side with the kids, initially. Being sent against their will to these camps makes them sympathetic, since it seems like such a steep price to pay for a minor infraction.

However, the more the kids talk about their gaming habits — from spending thousands on in-game add-ons, playing for days or weeks on end without proper sleep (and, in Hope’s case, orchestrating an escape from the facility to play at an Internet café), the more it seems like “addic-

tion” may be a fitting label. At the very least, many of these boys seem to have other issues, like depression or anxiety that require treatment. The authority figures are similarly complex. Parents who initially seem harsh and distant are gradually seen as desperate, having turned to the camps after years of growing further apart from their kids. It’s out of fear and love they subject their kids to this treatment, as well as a lack of understanding. A generational gulf prevents them from seeing eye to eye — as when Nicky’s parents regard the Internet as an inherently fake distraction, while Nicky sees it as just another aspect of reality, a coping mechanism to connect with other like-minded people. Daxing itself is also more complicated than it seems. Underneath the military drills, isolation exercises and apoplectic lectures on the dangers of “electronic heroin,” there is a staff of doctors who are working hard to try to better define the condition and heal the damaged parent/child relationships. Because of this, the film becomes less of a finger-pointing session or an exposé on a little-known reality, but rather a meditation on how people with good intentions can best address a very real problem that remains ill-defined and misunderstood. Also at play is cultural climate of China, and how it affects the children and their situation. The parents begin to articulate how the pressures of society drive them and their children to behave the way they do — specifically, in how China’s “one child” policy makes children more lonely, and prone to finding companionship and escape WEB JUNKIE, continued on p.18

UNIVERSAL PEACE DAY AND PAX CHRISTI METRO NY’s ANNUAL HIROSHIMA/NAGASAKI MEMORIAL

PHOTO BY SUZEN

Three solemn yet ultimately hopeful events will commemorate the 69th anniversary of the U.S. bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, by contemplating the destructive power of nuclear weaponry as well as the world’s capacity to peacefully coexist. Pax Christi Metro New York’s annual Hiroshima/Nagasaki Memorial begins with a screening of “The Ultimate Wish: Ending the Nuclear Age,” followed by a discussion with co-producer Dr. Kathleen Sullivan. Then, there will be a silent procession and public vigil. Sun., Aug. 3, from 2:30-4:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Greenwich Village Church (Washington Pl. and Sixth Ave.). Free. For more details, call 212-420-0250 or visit nypaxchristi.org. Universal Peace Day, on Tues., Aug. 5, is an annual event marked by public gatherings throughout the world, with the goal of achieving a shared vision of peace, while transforming a remembrance of horror into a rededication of life. Locally, a Peace Walk begins at 5 p.m. with a gathering at Union Square West (btw. 14th & 15th Sts., by the Gandhi statue). A Native American opening ceremony is

followed by appearances from The Raging Grannies, The Living Theatre, Russell Daisey, Bruce Markow and others. At 7:15 p.m., the exact moment of the Hiroshima bombing, there will be a Peace Bell Ringing Ceremony followed by a minute of prayers for peace and a global singing of John Lennon’s “Imagine.” After the singing, there will be a silent peace walk from Union Square to Saint John’s Lutheran Church (81 Christopher St.). At the church, an interfaith service is followed by “Concert for a World Without War.” This year’s installment features performers who’ve appeared at Universal Peace Day events over the last 30

NEW DIRECTIONS IN SOLO PIANO LUNCHTIME CONCERT SERIES

The future of solo piano performance is now — or at least it will be, for four days in August. That’s when the New Directions series will present free lunchtime concerts dedicated to charting new frontiers in virtuosity. The Aug. 18 and 19 performances feature two young NYC-based Cuban pianists:

Grammy Award nominees Elio Villafranca and Manuel Valera. The following two concerts welcome world-renowned performers Vadim Neselovskyi and Laszlo Gardony, who will interpret New York jazz through their perspectives as master improvisers and observers of American piano culture. This series is presented by Arts Brookfield — which, now through December, will celebrate its 25th Anniversary by offering the public the chance to have their artwork displayed at Brookfield’s office properties around the globe. For info on how to participate, visit artsbrookfield25.com. It’s the digital home of their “Art Set Free” program, and the possible future host of your own artistic contribution. Free. From 12:30–1:30 p.m. daily, Mon, Aug. 18 through Thurs., Aug. 21. At Arts Brookfield (in the lobby of One Liberty Plaza, at 165 Broadway).

online. Both the parents and the children also feel the effects of China’s grade-obsessed culture, as parents begin to regret how hard they pushed their kids. Then there’s the issue of “Internet addiction” — which China cites as a top health threat for youths — and the camps themselves, which show how ill-equipped the country is at handling the situation through any means but force. As the teens laugh their way through their treatment, joking about how they’re paying lip-service to the higher ups and will go back to gaming once released, one gets the distinct impression that almost none of the camp’s methods are actually successful at all. Although the film works well when touching

on the larger societal implications of the phenomenon, it’s at its best when focusing on the individual cases. Here, “Web Junkie” allows viewers to grasp the struggle on a gut, rather than intellectual, level. Child/parent therapy sessions prove to be startling and emotionally volatile, finding the participants at dark and honest moments. One standout scene finds Nicky, who has become suicidal, threatening both his father’s and his own lives due to a sense of hopelessness and alienation. Another shows Hope gradually reconnecting with his emotionally removed father. In raw and emotional moments like these, “Web Junkie” is elevated from an interesting think piece into a film with ability to genuinely move audiences, allowing its message to better take hold. The technical aspects also distinguish “Web Junkie,” whose cinema vérité style gives the

viewer a fly-on-the-wall look at the institution’s questionable rehabilitation methods. The lightly pulsating rock-based score creates a certain sense of urgency, without becoming too invasive. Most importantly, the editing keeps everything moving along briskly, dispensing information quickly and efficiently for uninitiated viewers, but letting emotional beats linger just long enough to have the maximum impact. This amounts to a tightly wound, engaging movie. “Web Junkie” is the special documentary that manages to be entertaining and informative, as well as emotionally involving — without ever pandering or underestimating the audience’s intelligence. It appeals to the intellect to get across complex ideas and concepts, and the heart to tell deeply felt, human stories — causing the questions it raises to linger in the mind long after it’s finished.

HERE AND ELSEWHERE

In the past decade, contemporary art from across North Africa and the Middle East has increasingly gathered international attention. Some of the most comprehensive and most important recent international exhibitions in Europe — such as Documenta in Kassel (2012) and the La Biennale di Venezia (2013) — have made a point of including artists from these regions. In New York, however, it is still somewhat hard to come by works heralding from Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Dubai, Doha, Marrakesh, Ramallah or Sharjah. Therefore, it is a special treat to visit “Here and Elsewhere” — the first museum-wide TheVillager.com

exhibition in New York to bring together more than 40 artists from over 12 countries in the Arab world, many of whom live and work internationally. It is organized by the New Museum’s curatorial department, led by Massimiliano Gioni, who also curated La Biennale in 2013. The title is borrowed from “Ici et ailleurs” [Here and Elsewhere], a 1976 work by French directors Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin, and Anne-Marie Miéville. Conceived as a pro-Palestinian documentary, it manifested as a faceted contemplation of the representation and the status of images as political instruments. In this spirit, the exhibition embraces different methodologies with a focus on personal reportage. It particularly examines the role of artists in the face of historical events and how they are vested with the responsibility of revising domi-

nant historical narratives. While several of the artists experiment with archival material, rewriting personal and collective traumas, others employ traditional mediums (painting, drawing, sculpture) to record subtle and intimate shifts in awareness sparked by current events. By including both under-recognized and established mid-career artists, “Here and Elsewhere” works against the notion of the Arab world as a homogenous or cohesive entity. Through Sept. 28, at the New Museum (235 Bowery, btw. Stanton & Rivington Sts.). Hours: Wed., Fri.–Sun., 11 a.m.–6 p.m., Thurs. 11 a.m.–9 p.m. Admission: $16 ($14 for seniors, $10 for students).

Seniors work it out in the water at Dapolito PHOTO BY TEQUILA MINSKY

During the summer, seniors can do water aerobics three times a week at the Dapolito Recreation Center’s outdoor pool, at Clarkson St. and Seventh Ave. South. Senior swim is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from about 10:10 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. Adding some artistic flavor is the recently restored Keith Haring mural that lines a wall on one side of the pool.

Frozen Peaks takes fro-yo pops to new heights BY MELISSA KRAVITZ

I

n case there was any doubt, the West Village is still the coolest place to be. And thanks to a new outpost of the mini-chain Frozen Peaks, the temperature on Bleecker St. just got a lot chillier. This colorful fro-yo shop has your standard fare: various handles of pay-by-weight self-serve frozen treats, DIY dry toppings, like cookie crumbs, fresh fruit and mocha, and hot fudge, to drizzle atop your masterful creation. You know the drill. But Frozen Peaks is not your standard fro-yo shop. “There’s 16 Handles, Red Mango, Pinkberry, but we’re not just a yogurt store: We’re a dessert house,” explained owner Rishi Popli. From stuffed cupcakes to freshly made waffles to frozen-yogurt espresso affogatos to their new invention, FP Pops (frozen yogurt on a stick), Frozen Peaks offers a breadth of desserts ready to please any sweet tooth. With a technical background, Popli is all about innovation, creativity and specificity. “I have an M.B.A. in marketing, but I’m an Indian guy who loves food,” Popli said. “I cook, but it’s really all about creativity.” His inspiration for opening Manhattan’s first Frozen Peaks: his wife, a sweet tooth who struggles with diabetes. After trying to find suitable des-

Fresh fro-yo pops are made daily right on the premises at Frozen Peaks.

serts near their home in New Jersey, the Poplis discovered that frozen yogurt is a great substitute — low in sugar and calories and still delicious. An instant love affair with the treat led to the opening of Bleecker St.’ s Frozen Peaks in May. A desire for differentiation along with deliciousness led to the creation of their signature FP Pop. “This is Bleecker St., it’s all about

differentiating yourself,” Popli noted. Making yogurt pops isn’t easy: The shape, consistency and flavor are all difficult to create and then maintain. Popli traveled to the Dessert Fair in Italy in order to make his vision a reality. Four months and $20,000 of research later, he invented a frozen-yogurt pop method that stayed frozen without being icy. “There’s always a cheap way and

an expensive way to do things,” he said. A natural go-getter, Popli chose the best way: silicon molds filled with various flavors of yogurt and frozen overnight at 24 degrees. The pops are made fresh in-house every day, and sell out on a regular basis. Popli’s fro-yo on a stick is the only treat of its kind in New York City, and is customized to the customer’s liking. FP Pops can be dipped in four different sauces imported from Italy and then topped with assorted candy, cookie and nut toppings. The gourmet treat ranges from 60 to 110 calories and costs less than $5 with your customization, making a great on-the-go treat for hot days. More than merely a fantastic dessert shop, Frozen Peaks also serves as a community hot spot. Meetup groups, school programs, birthday celebrators and neighborhood workers (who can enjoy 10 percent off at the dessert shop) all flock to the colorful venue to use its hospitable (and WiFi-equipped) space. Popli himself stands outside the shop, passing out discount fliers and meeting the neighbors who pass by his new business. His enthusiasm for building a vibrant community space is evident. “We just want this to be a place the community can enjoy,” he said.

Long Island City: Skyline views, chic eateries REAL ESTATE BY LAUREN PRICE

ong Island City in southwestern Queens — running from the East River and Newtown Creek to Broadway and east to roughly 51st St. and Hobart St. — is home to some 70,000 residents, according to the Long Island City Partnership. Sometimes referred to as Hunters Point, the neighborhood is transforming itself big time — due in no small measure to take-your-breath-away views of Manhattan’s skyline, its quick commute to Midtown, and the amenity-driven developments that began popping up a decade or so ago. The Partnership reports that since 2007, more than 7,600 residential units have been completed in the neighborhood, with another 12,800 either under construction or on the drawing board. Chic restaurants and a vibrant nightlife are booming. Meanwhile, over at the 12-acre Gantry Plaza State Park, die-hard fishermen try their luck at one of the four piers, and others simply stroll the waterfront promenade. One of the two largest outdoor markets in Queens — the other is in Astoria — LIC Flea & Food (licflea.com) is open every Sunday on 46th Ave. near the waterfront. Not only can you sample a tasty bite or purchase products from local restaurants and artisanal food producers here, you will find plenty of vendors hawking vintage clothing, antiques and gifts. Cultural favorites include the MoMA P.S. 1 Museum (momaps1. org) on Jackson Ave. off 46th Ave., the Noguchi Museum (noguchi. org) on 33rd Road and Vernon Boulevard, and the nearby Socrates Sculpture Park (socrates-sculpturepark.org) on Vernon Boulevard at Broadway. In addition, century-old industrial buildings and old commercial garages have been re-created as must-see art galleries and performance spaces, such as the Chocolate Factory Theater (chocolatefactorytheater.org) on 49th Ave., also near Vernon Boulevard. For those up for a very quick detour, the Museum of the Moving Image (movingimage.us) on 35th Ave. at 37th St. in Astoria is most definitely worth a visit. Transportation to and from Manhattan is a snap, with several options available. New York Waterway’s East River Ferry Service (eastriverferry.com) is a bike-friendly service

that makes stops at Pier 11 / Wall St., Brooklyn Bridge Park / DUMBO, Schaefer Landing / South Williamsburg, North Sixth St. / North Williamsburg, India St. / Greenpoint, Hunters Point / LIC, and E. 34th St. / Midtown. On warm-weather weekends, you can also travel to Governors Island this way. The E, M, and R trains are available at Queens Plaza; the N, Q, and 7 nearby at Queensboro Plaza; the E, M, and 7 at Court Square / 23rd St.; and the 7 also at Hunters Point Ave. and Vernon Boulevard / Jackson Ave. You can also pick up the Long Island Railroad into Penn Station at Hunters Point Ave. The G train, that mysterious line that runs only between Queens and Brooklyn (with a Park Slope terminus), is available at Court Square and at 21st St.

W H AT ’ S O N T H E M A R K E T Trulia (trulia.com) reports that the median sales price for homes in Long Island City from March 14 to June 14 was $700,000. And according to Streeteasy (streeteasy.com), the current median rent for studios is $2,535, with one-bedroom units coming in at about $2,800. Both companies are highly rated online real estate databases for buyers, renters, sellers and real estate professionals. Along with property

listings, they both provide neighborhood information and community insights. The housing stock includes fancy, tricked-out high-rise complexes, mostly along Vernon and Center Boulevards, that offer a host of pleasures and creature comforts — resident lounges, fitness centers with an emphasis on wellness, spa treatments, putting greens, tennis courts, cabana-filled sundecks, playrooms, swimming pools and on-site parking. The neighborhood is also full of row houses, brownstones and pre-wars. To be sure, there are plenty of units for sale, but fancy — and not so fancy — rental developments rule. Of-the-moment rentals are not just attracting younger and newly arrived renters, but families and empty nesters, as well. Developed by Rockrose Development Corp., the Linc LIC at 43-10 Crescent St. is currently renting studios to three bedrooms, including a huge 1,400-square-foot, three-bedroom home with 11-foot ceilings and a wraparound terrace. Among the other homes, many sport floorto-ceiling windows and private outdoor spaces. Communal amenities include a private park, a bi-level lounge with a pool table, a roof deck with a lawn, misting sprays, squash and basketball courts, a bi-level fitness center, a playroom, a screening room, round-the-clock doormen, private storage and on-

site parking. Pet Services by SPOT include daycare, walking, grooming, training, transportation and cage-free boarding. No-fee monthly rents start at $2,375. (linclic.com) TF Cornerstone’s sixth and final residential building on the waterfront is a family-friendly development with spacious apartments and a sprawling amount of outdoor space. Known for its sleek, modern design that curves around L.I.C.’s famous Pepsi-Cola sign, the building’s offerings range from studios to three-bedroom apartments with anywhere from 500 square feet to more than 1,300. All feature floorto-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, custom-designed closets and Manhattan skyline vistas. A select group of units have outdoor space. Open kitchens have glossy white cabinetry and the latest in stainless-steel appliances. Communal extras include a 50,000-square-foot amenity deck with a real sand beach volleyball court, two tennis courts, a reflecting pool, a sprawling lawn, a putting green, and a sun deck with BBQ grills. Additional amenities include play areas, a dog run, fitness centers, lounges, on-site parking and 24-hour concierge / doorman services. No-fee monthly rentals begin at $2,295.

tremendous amount of high-rises cropping up, and we wanted to offer an alternative for those seeking the look and feel of a stand-alone home,” said Jennifer Dorfmann, the executive vice president of Modern Spaces. (modernspacesnyc. com/listings/new-developments/ queens/long-island-city/5137) A two-bedroom duplex condominium at the brand new Millstone (41-18 27th St.) is now selling for $845,000.

HealthPlex is seeing 60 or more patients per day HEALTHPLEX, continued from p. 1

to be transported from the Village E.D. to hospitals. Thirty of these were admitted to Lenox Hill Hospital, on the Upper East Side, which, like the HealthPlex, is part of the North Shore-LIJ Health System. Nine other patients were sent to other area hospitals, such as Beth Israel, N.Y.U. Langone, Bellevue or Cornell. According to Dr. Eric Cruzen, the HealthPlex’s director of emergency medicine, the patients who needed to be transported had conditions ranging from fractures that required surgery, congestive heart failure, faintness and psychological issues to appendicitis (a patient needed his or her appendix taken out) and other abdominal problems. All these patients were transported by the two NS-LIJ ambulances that the HealthPlex has on hand in its ambulance bay on W. 12th St. “Transports have run smoothly and quickly,” Cruzen said. However, the total number of individuals who have needed to be transported has been lower than the 10 percent that was anticipated. Noting that they are tracking this figure very carefully, Cruzen said it stood at 6.37 percent on Tuesday as he was speaking around 4 p.m. (In between the time Hellinger spoke to The Villager and Cruzen spoke to the paper separately a bit later, the total number of patients the place had seen had jumped to 612.) As for the mix of patients they’ve been getting, Hellinger and Cruzen said, it’s been all over the place in terms of age, but only 5 percent have been pediatric patients, under age 18. The most serious pediatric case involved a teen who stepped in a hole and displaced a bone in his foot. Other conditions the HealthPlex has treated include seizures and shortness of breath, such as by people who were climbing up subway stairs. A few people have come in for psychological conditions, such as depression, and were seen by the on-site social worker/case manager and released. They might have been given outpatient referrals or had their medication adjusted, Cruzen said. Charles Mozdir, the fugitive sex offender gunned down by officers Monday at a Village smoke shop, was also brought to the HealthPlex. “What I was told is that they’d bring him to the nearest emergency center,” Hellinger said. “He was unresponsive, and they were working on him before they brought him here. He had multiple, multiple gunshot wounds.”

The Lenox Hill HealthPlex’s emergency department has now been open for two weeks on the building’s ground floor. In the near future, the $150 million facility will also be offering healthcare services on its upper floors, including imaging services and orthopedic surgery.

Meanwhile, the three officers who were wounded in the gun battle — including a detective shot in the abdomen — were taken to Bellevue. On its first day, the HealthPlex had 30 patients, but now they’re regularly seeing around 60 per day. The heaviest volume was Sat., July 26, when they had 66 patients, which is just a couple of patients shy of their “steady state expectation” of 68 per day — the number they project they’ll be seeing once the place hits its stride. Cruzen said it’s to be expected that weekends have the heaviest patient volume, since the Village is a destination neighborhood known for its entertainment, bars and restaurants. “The weekends are busier,” he said. “It’s people who were putting off coming in. Also, you get the partiers. There are more people in the Village recreating.” The HealthPlex has treated a number of individuals for intoxication, including a homeless person, but also wealthy individuals who were on a night out on the town, Cruzen noted. “Substance abuse does not discriminate based on socioeconomic status,” he noted. As for whether the woozy walkins are coming from the Meatpacking District or other Village-area watering holes, Cruzen said, “We don’t ask, but the consensus is that they’re coming from bars and clubs.” Often, intoxicated patients sport injuries they sustained while stumbling around, he noted. “We get a lot of people with ankle injuries,” he said. Hellinger said ambulances that have dropped off patients at the HealthPlex have been from the Fire Department and E.M.S., Hatzolah and also neighboring hospitals. As of midafternoon Tuesday, the

new freestanding emergency department had already dealt with three patients who ranked as 1’s on the E.S.I., or “emergency severity index,” of 1 through 5, as well 81 patients that rated as 2’s. One of the Level 1’s was a man in his 60s who was very sick with a sepsis infection, Cruzen said. They resuscitated him and sent him up to Lenox Hill Hospital. The elderly woman who hit her head also rated a 1 on the E.S.I. index. To date, the HealthPlex had not dealt with any heart attacks, strokes or major trauma. In the event of those kind of cases, they would stabilize and treat the patients, then transport them to nearby hospitals. Hellinger said many West Village residents have been very flattering in their comments about the facility, the staff and the place’s capabilities. This praise has both been expressed verbally and in e-mails from patients after leaving the HealthPlex. “We had one gentleman who said he was here when this was built,” Hellinger said of the HealthPlex’s iconic ship-shaped building. “He had a fractured arm. He was just really glowing [about the HealthPlex] in his conversation. He got a splint.” Formerly the St. Vincent’s Hospital O’Toole Building, the HealthPlex’s home was originally built as a maritime union headquarters. In an e-mail to Cruzen, the elderly skull-fracture patient said of the treatment she received, “If I could enter my review on Yelp, I would enter a five-star review.” As for the man who suffered an anaphylactic reaction, he had been dining at one of the city’s finest restaurants, in the Flatiron District, when the tree-nut allergy suddenly struck him. His tongue swelled up

and he could hardly speak or breathe. As the man’s wife later explained in an e-mail to HealthPlex P.R. rep Barbara Osborn, due to the allergic reaction’s severity — it was the worst one her husband had ever had — they didn’t want to call an ambulance and have to wait for it to arrive, but they did know about the new HealthPlex. As the wife put it in her e-mail, “If I had to wonder where to go or had to call 911, it might have been a terrible night.” Instead, they got in their car, and with the woman at the wheel, quickly drove over to the HealthPlex. The man was quickly given intravenous drugs to alleviate the allergic reaction. The new facility also has top equipment, including a CAT scan machine, Hellinger and Cruzen noted. And the HealthPlex can administer 780 types of medicine. The loss of St. Vincent’s, a full-service hospital, with inpatient beds, is still being felt deeply in the community. But Hellinger and Cruzen both said that, in one way, having a standalone E.D. does have an advantage, in that, in most cases, it will mean faster treatment, because there won’t be any competition with an attached hospital for X-rays and CAT scans or lab test results. “Usually the biggest delay in E.D.’s is waiting for results, if there are beds upstairs,” Hellinger noted. A recent article in The New York Times noted, somewhat cynically, that the Village HealthPlex and other new freestanding E.D.’s have another role — as feeders for private hospitals that want to fill their beds, exploiting the voids left as other neighborhood hospitals have closed. And, in the HealthPlex’s case, it’s true that most of the patients needing to be transported are going to Lenox Hill Hospital. The Times article also noted that the well-equipped W. 12th St. HealthPlex apparently hopes to attract more affluent local patients, the kind that avoided St. Vincent’s. Nevertheless, the HealthPlex accepts all patients, regardless of ability to pay, unlike urgent-care centers, which are now charging $50 simply for a standard visit. Over all, though, Cruzen, like Hellinger, noted he’s basically been getting very positive feedback from the HealthPlex’s patients. “A lot of people echoed the same thing that we are hearing,” Cruzen said, “that it’s really filling the void that was left by St. Vincent’s — that there’s somewhere they can go for lifesaving care. This is right across the street from them — it’s a game-changer.” July 31, 2014
