The Copper WALKING TO HONOR THE FALLEN Still Proves Annual 9/11 Walk of Remembrance its Mettle Retraces Route of Father Mychal Judge BY MARK NIMAR This August, three Irishmen invaded Chelsea — but instead of bearing rifles and swords, they stormed the neighborhood with Aberfeldy scotch, oak & caramel bourbon, and Connemara whiskey. They serve these spirits, and over 150 other types of whiskey, at their new bar, The Copper Still, which opened last month at the corner of W. 22nd and Seventh Ave. The owners — Michael Brannigan, Shane Buggy, and Brendan Clinkscales — all born and bred Irishmen, started the bar four years ago in the East Village after COPPER STILL continued on p. 2

BY WINNIE McCROY Community board members across the city are crying foul over the recent announcement that the mayor’s office is proposing term limits for their volunteer service, to be voted on during the Nov. 6 general election — and they’ve penned a pointed letter to let his office know how they feel. “MCB4 [Manhattan Community Board 4] strongly believes your ballot proposals relating to the functioning of Community Boards were made without a fundamental understanding

of how Community Boards work and will not accomplish the stated goals of the Commission,” they wrote, in their Sept. 6 letter to NYC Charter Revision Commission Chair Cesar Perales. They further noted, “The Mayor’s approach was hasty, requires further vetting, and again may result in unintended consequences that will weaken the community board system and undermine the very goals advanced by the Commission.” On Sept. 4, after months of public discussions held during the summer (when few community board committees meet),

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Commission voted to approve three ballot questions to be voted on in November. The first question proposes reducing contribution limits for elected officials, and the second question establishes a Civic Engagement Commission to expand access at polling sites. The third establishes term limits on community board members and would “standardize the appointment process to make Boards more representative of their communities.

The Copper Still Puts its Spirited Stamp on Chelsea

meeting one another in the neighborhood’s bartending scene. None of them had ever owned a bar in Manhattan before, where bars often open and then disappear faster than a leprechaun. But the risk has paid off. Their East Village establishment has done so well, they’ve been able to bring the party over to Chelsea. And the new pub in Chelsea is thriving. The white wooden tavern was chock-full on a recent Friday night at 7 p.m., buzzing and humming with the conversation of friends gathered around pine square tables. Hanging copper lanterns and white candles light the dark space, as 30-somethings dine on deviled eggs, cordon bleu fritters, and honey bourbon wings. Wooden barrelheads are mounted high on the white walls, bearing the names Teeling Whiskey, Smooth Ambler, and Jefferson’s Ridiculously Small Batch Bourbon. Then, of course, there’s the liquor. “We have our own private barrel from Woodford Reserve,” said Brendan Clinkscales. A handsome Irishman with bright green eyes, Clinkscales uses this private barrel of whiskey to make one of the bar’s signature drinks, the Still Fashionable, which is also made

of Combier Rouge, orange bitters, and Bigallet China-China. Whether you fancy cocktails or prefer something a little less strong, there truly is something for everybody at The Copper Still. Behind the red oak bar, “We have 150 whiskeys, 30 mezcals, 20 gins, 20 rums, 15 vodkas, 14 wines by the glass, and 12 beers on tap,” Clinkscales noted. Being a bartender is more than just a job for Clinkscales — it’s a passion. “I enjoy making cocktails and figuring them out,” he said. “I enjoy the atmosphere [of the bar]... and I enjoy people for the most part.” And when it comes to liquor, nothing gets by him: Clinkscales personally samples each and every bottle that comes into the bar to assure that only the highest quality spirits are being served. For Clinkscales though, an Irish bar is about more than just the booze and fried pickles. “It’s a place where neighbors get to meet. Especially in a digital world where everyone is on the phone... You meet people here who may be on your block where you wouldn’t meet otherwise.” Clinkscales has also noticed that customers are coming to the Copper Still for a genuine communal experience that’s difficult to find in a busy, sometimes lonely, city like New York. “The COPPER STILL continued on p. 17 NYC Community Media


Mayor’s November Ballot Question Puts Term Limits on Community Boards TERM LIMITS continued from p. 1

receive additional resources, particularly in urban planning.” Community board members now serve two-year terms. The mayor’s proposal would have members appointed or reappointed on or after April 1, 2019 be limited to serving four consecutive two-year terms. Members appointed or reappointed after April 1, 2020 could be reappointed for up to five consecutive two-year terms, to prevent heavy turnover in 2027-2028. Members who have served the maximum number of consecutive terms would not be barred from reappointment after one full term out of office. Chair Cesar Perales wrote, “This Commission set out to identify proposals designed to improve civic life in New York City and, through an extensive and thoughtful process, that is just what we have done. The proposals approved by the Commission today will provide the voters with an opportunity to weigh in on changes that would impact several important aspects of civic life.” But those who serve on local community boards are doubtful that the measure will actually improve civic life. In fact, they believe that the mayor’s office has not fully considered the impact this change could effect, and they have drafted a three-page letter to help educate the Commission and the community about the risks. “We’re telling the Commission that we don’t think they’ve thought about the consequences of this, and we’d really like them to hold off,” said CB4 Chair Burt Lazarin. “In essence, we’re going on record and the thrust of this letter is against these term limits, because it sabotages the creation of institutional memory, skills and knowledge, and prevents any kind of real continuity from old to new people coming onto the Board.” As an example, CB4 member Betty Mackintosh pointed to the ability to negotiate some of their complex special zoning districts, such as the Special West Chelsea District and the Hudson Yards Special District, saying, “Most of these members were not here in 2005 when these unique zoning regulations were implemented. But CB4 is fortunate to have several long-term members who were there when they were formed, and their knowledge is absolutely essential to the board.” While Mackintosh understood the need for community boards to be representative of the demographics of their area, she suggested diversity could be improved through outreach to underNYC Community Media

represented groups — and “very meaningful improvements” could include increased funding for additional staff members with urban planning skills, she posited. Other CB4 members noted that their group already rotates out their top five leadership posts every two years, through December elections of two secretaries, two vice-chairs, and a chair. They argue that these term limits are arbitrary and will negatively impact community governing. Some even suggested the ballot measure infringed upon their civic rights. “We need to ask someone about this because there should be no city, state or federal law that curtails volunteer participation,” said JD Noland, Chair of CB4’s Clinton/Hell’s Kitchen Land Use Committee. “This is almost discriminatory, because it is an attempt to limit participation by citizens in the addressing of grievances by saying we can’t serve. There’s no due process here, and I’d like to reach out to legal counsel about this.” CB4 member Christopher LeBron fumed, “This mayor bills himself as a progressive, but this behavior is authoritarian.” CB4 members are not alone in thinking that curtailing term limits on their voluntary participation is a bad thing. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer has already joined borough presidents from the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island to co-sign an Aug. 21 letter to Perales, writing to express “serious concerns with the August 14, 2018 Resolution adopted by the New York City Charter Revision Commission.” That letter notes that the proposals

relating to community boards could have unintended negative consequences on community participation and engagement, and urges the mayor that the “hasty adoption of these proposals following an abbreviated Charter Revision Commission process and little to no public review or discussion of draft charter amendments would be reckless

and unwise.” The borough presidents note that particularly regarding land use issues, community board members must develop an expertise that comes from years of experience serving on their boards. Imposing term limits on these members

Father Mychal Judge 9/11 Walk of Remembrance tent rain and wind, some 1,200 people filled the pews of St. Francis of Assisi Church for a Rosary and Mass. Then, 1,000 friends of Fr. Judge, family members and friends of those killed, clergy, senior FDNY officers, community members, and elected officials — led by a Color Guard of NYPD officers from the Ceremonial Unit — joined in the walk from the church on W. 31st St. to the World Trade Center and St. Peter’s Church on Barclay St. For the 10th consecutive year, they were met at W. 19th St. and Seventh Ave. by a 40-member contingent of 10th Precinct officers and auxiliaries led by Capt. Kevin Coleman (Precinct CO), PO Ramon Sandoval (Precinct Auxiliary Coordinator), and members of FDNY’s Battalion 7, Engine 3 and Ladder 12. Also contributing were members of the FDNY’s and Port Authority Police Department’s Ceremonial Units. The Ceremonial Units deserve special recognition for marching with rainsoaked flags, while maintaining perfect cadence — not an easy task. Despite the unpleasant weather,

there was a record turnout — plus countless others who stood in the rain waiting to render honors. For more information, visit 911walkofremembrance.com, call 646856-WALK, or email 911walkofremem brance@gmail.com.

Manhattan’s Pop-Up Museums Provide POP-UPS continued from p. 1

highly-paid social media “Influencer.” But how can a nobody look glamorous enough to build such a following in the first place? There are places in New York that exist primarily to facilitate selfie fanatics in their quest for Insta-fame. They call themselves “pop-up museums,” and wannabe Instagram stars can get pictures of themselves in dozens of photogenic locations. For a price. The recently closed Museum of Ice Cream was a notorious example where people could pay a $35 fee for a tasting tour of ice creams, and get an educational experience. Coincidentally, the colorful museum was simply begging for selfies. Although the MoIC is gone, a dozen similar pop-ups have taken its place, all purporting to provide art or education through their glamorous set pieces. We visited them all, seeking out fellow art lovers and intellectuals, but mostly found young women taking pictures of themselves with the art. The Rosé Mansion (running in Midtown through Oct. 7) makes a legitimate effort to be educational. Attendees can taste eight different kinds of wine there, and the Photo by Charles Battersby

staff will answer questions about the distinct traits of each vintage. Of all the pop-ups we visited this one had the greatest number of spots for pictures, and made the most efficient use of its space. Every wall was colorful, with some form of art, or at least an inspirational slogan painted on it. Aside from the larger rooms, there were phonebooth-sized cubbyholes, and ornate chairs in the corners. On our trip there, very few women could be observed asking about the artwork, or the history of wine. It was a tipsy selfie fest and, yes, it was just ladies. The sole gentleman that we encountered in this pink palace was clearly there as a personal photographer and luggage porter. For a more child-friendly experience Candytopia is running near Herald Square through November. There’s no booze, but anyone who dreamed of a golden ticket to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory will love this experience. There is free candy in every room, actors doing scripted material, and an abundance of selfie spots. The crowd at Candytopia was mostly parents snapping pics of their kids. A few unescorted adults were present,

but such sightings were relatively rare during our afternoon visit. The place is designed with thematic rooms that feature art made from candy. These range from giant sculptures to 2D re-creations of famous paintings. One such painting is Warhol’s infamous soup can, which raises the question, “If the original is art, then why not the candy recreation?” Despite the potential for serious discussion about the nature of art, the staff confirmed that most of the attendees were more concerned with snapping pics. One of the smaller popups is Wonderworld in Soho. It uses an “Alice in Wonderland” theme with several highly photogenic rooms. However, it’s more than just a bunch of selfie spots. People who want to learn a new skill, and have a social experience can opt for the weekend tea party and flower arranging class (at a higher ticket price). The 29 Rooms exhibit (through Sept. 16 in Brooklyn) lives up to its name, with quite a lot of rooms, each by a different artist, and often promoting a product, or nonprofit organization. Some are selfie spots, but we were happy to see that several are based around interaction with other guests, and encourage NYC Community Media


Perfect Selfies, Promote Intsa-Fame people to set down their phone and talk to a real human. One room is based on sound, using “kinetic sculptures” to make Indonesian gamelan music. This room is kept mostly dark, thereby discouraging selfies. Room For Tea in Chinatown (open through Sept. 22) celebrates bubble tea. Six rooms representing different aspects of tea can be explored, and everyone who attends gets a cup of sweet bubble tea. Room For Tea also has a serene room where people can join in a tea ceremony, and try hot tea, while learning about the more traditional way of preparing it, as opposed to the modern sweeter drinks. We found, once again, that the selfies were the focus, with few people interested in the quieter tea ceremony. One of the staff members commented with a knowing smile, and simply said, “They’re millennials.” This generation gap was only broken by Candytopia, where parents who are a bit too old to qualify as millennials were accompanied by children whose generation hasn’t yet earned a nickCourtesy of Room For Tea Staff

Johnson Might Try to Steer Traffic Plan Around Legislature BY SYDNEY PEREIRA City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said last week that the city may be able to implement congestion pricing without the state Legislature — though he added that if Albany lawmakers could pass a plan, it would be much easier. “I think we have potential home rule authority that we’re willing to look at,” Johnson told reporters after his speech at a New York Law School breakfast last Friday. “Again, it is always cleaner and easier if Albany does it because of the vast powers that Albany has through our state constitution over the city of New York. But if there’s going to be inaction, we will take a look at what our potential authority and powers are.” He compared the possibility to the recent workaround that the City Council, Mayor Bill de Blasio and

Extra! Extra!

Read all about it!

Governor Andrew Cuomo used to renew the school speed cameras program earlier this month after the state Senate refused to renew the program ahead of the school year. That fix involved Cuomo signing an executive order allowing the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles to give car ownership information to the city for speed cameras enforcement, plus a new City Council law creating a city schools speed camera program, and nearly doubling the number of protected schools from 140 to 290. For congestion pricing, the work-around would likely be different, Johnson said. “This is not a template, in some ways,” Johnson told reporters. “You have to go through and look bit by bit, which is why it would be much easier if the state passed a full congestion pricing plan. In the absence of that, we have to take a look.” Johnson supports traffic pricing both to reduce congestion on the city’s streets and fund the city’s ailing public transit system. “Without congestion pricing, we don’t have a realistic path forward for mass transit,” Johnson said. Two plans have been floated as congestion pricing possibilities: Fix NYC, a Cuomo-backed scheme, and MoveNY, an earlier grassroots plan spearheaded by Sam Schwartz, transportation expert “Gridlock Sam,” which inspired Fix NYC. However, some legal scholars argue that the city doesn’t need the state to pass congestion pricing, and that city-owned bridges can be tolled through city laws.

Roderick Hills, a New York University School of Law professor, specifically cites a 1957 provision in the Vehicle & Traffic Law, 1642(a)(4), which says that lawmakers in a city with more than 1 million people can implement tolls, taxes and fees on highways, so long as they are “authorized by law.” “Absent 1642(a)(4), the city would be in trouble,” said Hills, who testified on the matter with five other legal experts before the City Council last June. That provision, he added, is “explicit and fairly clear” in giving the city the power to toll its roads. But politically, it’s less of a surprise that the city hasn’t already used its authority to enact congestion pricing. “The politics of congestion fees are tricky, and in the past when the city has tried to toll the East River bridges, there were lots of protests,” Hills said. “It makes sense for the city to go to the state.” Additionally, the 1957 provision doesn’t give the city the power to toll some other spans, like the Throgs Neck, Whitestone, RFK Triborough and VerrazanoNarrows bridges, which are operated by the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. A comprehensive policy, Hills said, would allow the city to control the East River bridges, along with the city’s other major bridges — which would be important in terms of possibly lowering traffic fees in the outer boroughs to balance the added fees in Manhattan. It would be “handy to have a new state law to give the city some power to deal with the Authority bridges,” he said.

would only benefit real estate developers and their lobbyists and advisors, reads the letter. “Our Community Boards are an earlywarning system and neighborhood advocates on high-stakes real estate matters,” Brewer told Chelsea Now. “It can take years for volunteer board members to build the technical knowledge they need to scrutinize and negotiate zoning and land use proposals from high-powered developers, lobbyists, and City Hall itself. I believe community boards need a mix of newer and more experienced members, and that’s why more than 360 out of Manhattan’s 600 Community Board members are new since I was elected — but we can’t afford to push out every single member after just four terms.” According to the letter, the borough presidents were in favor of reporting requirements on recruitment and appointment of community board members and implementing consistent guidelines for community board applications, saying that the “additional sunlight on government processes such as appointments to community boards is the most appropriate means of strengthening the process and increasing accountability.” Although leaders urged the 2018

Commission to reconsider and allow time for public review of the specifics, Bodine noted that on Sept. 4, these proposals were placed on the November general election ballot, where few voters will be privy to what is really at stake. Still, CB4 members will draft and sign a letter formally registering their opposition to this ballot measure. They argue that they are not anti-democratic, and are not even anti-term limit, as their own leaders work under two-year term limits. But they’re determined to retain the level of expertise that comes with long-term membership. And some members note that future city leaders often spring from the community board membership. Such is certainly the case with CB4, whose former Chair, Corey Johnson, moved up to City Councilmember and then Speaker of the City Council — something he might never have achieved without the solid foundation he gained at CB4. Johnson has not publicly weighed in on this aspect of the mayor’s Charter Revision. His Communications Director, Jennifer Fermino, told Chelsea Now that he is undecided on the issue. It will now go to voters to decide on term limits for community board members via the ballot measure in the Nov. 6 general election.

Unfettered and Unfiltered Neo-Baroque Brilliance Now based in Bushwick, Company XIV’s new season unfolds

September 13, 2018

BY TRAV S.D. The reader may take it as a sign of Company XIV’s nonstop vibrancy that, after eight years of writing about them in 10 separate articles and reviews, your correspondent still finds new and interesting hooks to latch on to. Austin McCormick’s neo-baroque dance company has gone through many moves and changes during that time — from the banks of the Gowanus Canal, to Greenwich Village’s Minetta Lane Theatre, to the company’s own short-lived cabaret space on Lafayette St., to Brooklyn’s Irondale Center for Theater, Education and Outreach. They’ve left a trail of feathers, glitter, and sequins in their wake, as their semi-clad company has enthralled audiences with sexy adaptations of fairy tales and other works, mixing elements of ballet, burlesque, circus, opera, puppetry, and more. Now, Company XIV is about to launch their fall season at their new home in Bushwick, and thereby hangs a tale. “We moved to Bushwick last November,” said McCormick, “The challenge with choosing a new permanent home is finding a neighborhood that has the right vibe and energy. The risk is, that if you’re not in Manhattan, the fan base won’t come out anymore. Luckily this part of Bushwick is full of bars and entertainment venues. We’re near the House of Yes and Lot 45. It’s a good fit for the kind of immersive theatre we do. Since we moved, I’ve seen lots of familiar faces, as well as lots of new people. We just signed a long-term lease. We hope to be there for a long time to come.” This is good news for fans of Company XIV, who have been forced to watch this superlative troupe ping pong from pillar to post for years due to setbacks like Hurricane Sandy and trouble with landlords. With the heavy emphasis on design McCormick exerts on his productions, space and stability are at a premium for maxim aesthetic impact. The new space, like their one on Lafayette St., also has its own bar, with a variety of signature cocktails (some of them McCormick’s original recipes). The current season promises to uphold the company’s own high standards. Just opened is a revival of last season’s “Ferdinand: Boylesque Bullfight,” McCormick’s adaptation of Munro Leaf’s 1936 children’s book, “The Story of Ferdinand.” This version reimagines the classic story about the lazy, nap-loving bovine as an “erotic mostly all-male baroque-burlesque spectacle” in which the spectators are encouraged to “… roll around the Spanish hillside, then enjoy a bullfight in the XIV ring where our ferocious, fertile matador challenges dear Ferdinand to a duel.” Audiences responded well to the show in the recent production, according to McCormick. “The revival is our chance to refine it and perfect it.” “Ferdinand: Boylesque Bullfight” runs through Oct. 28. Next up is a perennial Company XIV favorite: NYC Community Media


“Nutcracker Rouge” — their annual holiday production, in which McCormick soups up the framework of the popular ballet and “trims the tree” with eclectic musical styles and enough sensuality for 1,000 sprigs of mistletoe. In addition to dance, the production contains circus elements and a changing roster of guest artists. Previews for “Nutcracker Rouge” start Nov. 9, with an opening Nov. 15. The show runs through the entire holiday season and out the other side, closing on Jan. 13. Finally, McCormick may be saving the best for last with the March 29 world-premiere of “Queen of Hearts,” his adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Given the hallucinatory nature of many of the choreographer’s previous visions, this one would appear to be a match made in a very surreal heaven. “I’m excited to be starting an all-new show,” he said. “I more often go back and rework older stuff. It’s not often I get to start from scratch. There’s a lot you can do with a well-known tale like this. It’s familiar, but the specifics are open to a lot of creative interpretations. It suits the immersive nature of our work well. I’m already working on a new ‘Drink Me’ cocktail tie-in.” “Queen of Hearts” will be on the

boards through May 5. As if this all weren’t enough, McCormick is also choreographing the Metropolitan Opera production of Camille Saint-Saenes’ “Samson et Dalila,” directed by Darko Tresnjek, which begins performances on Sept. 24. That, of course, will be work on a

scale he’d never be able to fit into any indie theatre venue, and at a location that is a good deal more posh. But if you think that relieves you of the need to see McCormick’s unfettered, unfiltered visions at his own joint, you’ve got another thing coming. There is no substitute for the aesthetic purity of a

The three leading local media companies serving the five boroughs of New York City, along with Long Island and Westchester, have now become one. Schneps Communications, a family-run business owned by Victoria and Joshua Schneps, has acquired Community News Group and NYC Community Media, one of the largest publishers of community newspapers, niche publications, websites and events in New York State. Together, Schneps, CNG, and NYCCM offer unmatched reach in the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Long Island and Westchester. The newly combined company will be known as Schneps Community News Group, and will have a total printed weekly circulation of more than 300,000 copies, a digital reach of more than 2.5 million page views per month, and host more than 40 events every year. “We will clearly have the largest reach of any local media company in New York City across print, digital, and events,” said Joshua Schneps, SCNG Chief Executive Officer. “We can now offer companies large and small, seeking to reach an individual neighborhood or the entire City of New York and its surrounding region, the most cost-effective and efficient means of marketing.” Each borough and Long Island have a group of distinctive media assets, some dating back as far as 1908. “Our brands are as grassroots as it gets, and produce award-winning content that both our readers and advertisers trust,” said Victoria Schneps, Publisher and President of SCNG. With the uncertainty of the media landscape both locally and nationally, Schneps has prospered by investing in content not only in its newspapers and niche publications, but through successful digital assets and events that have created a diversified media company. “This acquisition will allow us to reach a scale that will create unique opportunities for clients that want to target their marketing and work with proven brands,” said Victoria. “In addition, our knowledge and success around digital and events will be a boon to many of CNG’s exceptional outlets,” Joshua added. CNG and NYCCM was owned and operated by husband-and-wife team of Les and Jennifer Goodstein. Les was a News Corp executive who led the initial formation of CNG through a series of acquisitions, while Jennifer acquired NYCCM, with its group of titles in
