Push for Speed Camera Legislation Continues BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Get the New York State Senate back to Albany to renew and expand the law authorizing speed cameras around city schools. That was the message conveyed during a press conference held outside M.S. 88, 544 Seventh Avenue, on Wednesday, August 8 where Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities Commissioner Victor Calise was joined by elected officials, advocates for street safety and others who demanded that the Senate vote now to bring back speed cameras in 120 school zones, as well as expand the program to additional schools. The law authorizing the cameras expired on July 25 despite ongoing efforts to push the state Senate to hold a special session to consider legislation extending and expanding it. “There are close to one million people in New York City with disabilities and there are over 5,000 people with disabilities in this neighborhood alone,” said Calise. “And it’s exactly two weeks since the

Legislators and safety advocates urged the state Senate to reconvene and pass speed camera legislation this summer during a Sunset Park press conference. Senate failed to preserve and expand our speed camera program. That’s two weeks that kids in summer school have gone mostly unprotected. In those two weeks alone, there have been 14 people killed or in critical condition from crashes including an 11-year-old struck in a school zone a few miles from here last Friday. Enough is enough. Speed cameras are a proven way to save lives. It’s common sense.” “This is a safety issue for children but especially for children with disabilities,” added Caitlin Cassaro, executive director for Extreme Kids and Crew, Inc. and the mother of an autistic child. The organization she said, “Run(s) safe, supportive and fun spaces for our disabled

and neurodiverse population of children. We are located in some of these schools and just like our spaces, the streets surrounding the schools need to be safe as well.” Jane Martin-Lavaud, a member of Families for Safe Streets, whose daughter Leonora was killed by a speeding driver at Avenue U and East Fifth Street in 2013, concurred. Recalling that her g ra nd fat her and great-grandfather, as well as a friend, the conductor of the Kings County American Legion Band, had been “killed by a reckless driver,” she told her listeners, “Most importantly, I’m here on behalf of my daughter Leonora, who five years ago was struck and killed by a reckless driver. “Like every parent, I expected my children to outlive me,” Martin-Lavaud continued. “I expected them to lead full and productive lives. I had two and now I have one. I’m always tearful but my daughter’s birthday is this coming Monday and she won’t be here to celebrate it with us. So I mourn.” She added the problem appears to be getting worse. “What’s terribly upsetting to me is I’m apparently a part of a growing community of families who have lost children and other

lost ones or have been severely hurt,” she said. “I don’t even understand why this is even a conversation. We need to expand this program to protect all of our community members.” Executive Director of the Division of Family and Community Engagement for the Department of Education (DOE) Yolanda Torres contended that the bill needs to be passed before the school year begins. “As a community, we continue to work towards this challenge and we expect these cameras will be turned on because, at the end of the day, the safety of our students is our priority,” Torres said. According to the mayor’s office, currently, there are speed cameras at only 20 school zones, and the city can move those zones daily to maximize safety. However, those 20 cameras will lose their authorization to issue speeding violations at the end of August if the state Senate does not act. “It is completely absurd that all of us have to stand here this morning and ask the state Senate to do its job. One of the reasons we have to ask them is because of the 32 members of their coalition, the vast majority don’t live in New York City,” said Assemblymember Robert Carroll. “So it’s not their kids or families at risk. Clearly they’ve shown us in the last two weeks that they don’t care about New York City." If the state Senate doesn’t reconvene to vote on speed camera legislation on its own, Carroll added, Governor Andrew Cuomo should call the entire legislature back into session to deal with the matter.

PAROLE PUSHBACK FOR LENNON KILLER John Lennon’s killer is due to come up for a parole hearing but a Brooklyn lawmaker is trying to stop the murderer from getting out of prison. Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis held a rally at Strawberry Fields, the section of Central Park named in memory of the iconic Beatle, on Aug. 15 to call on the New York State Parole Board to reject a parole plea from Mark David Chapman. Chapman, who is now 63 years old, shot and killed Lennon outside the entrance to Lennon’s apartment building, the Dakota on Central Park West, on the night of Dec. 8 1980. Lennon was 40 years old. Chapman’s parole hearing is set for Aug. 20. He has been denied parole nine times before and remains in prison. Malliotakis, a Republican who represents portions of Bay Ridge and Staten Island, held the rally with Q104.3 Radio personality Jim Kerr. She also invited Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono Lennon, and other members of the Lennon family to attend the protest. The city dedicated Strawberry Fields in Lennon’s honor a few years after his death. The site is located near Central Park West and 72nd Street. The name is derived from “Strawberry Fields Forever,” a Beatles song Lennon wrote in the 1960s. —Paula Katinas

SPEEDERS GONNA SPEED Mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday, August 13 announced that, since speed-cameras in 120 school zones stopped generating summonses last month, more than 130,000 drivers have been observed by the deactivated cameras through Friday, August 10 driving more than 10 miles per hour over the speed limit, in school zones, during school hours. “In just over two weeks’ time since the cameras stopped issuing summonses, tens of thousands of drivers sped past schools. Even worse, because of state Senate inaction, these drivers will face absolutely no consequences for this lethal behavior,” said de Blasio. “The state Senate must end their vacation early and act before the first day of school, which is just weeks away. Our children’s lives depend on it.” The speed camera legislation expired on July 25, with both the Assembly and the governor on board with a bill that would have not only continued the program, but also expanded on it. That bill, however, never made it to a vote in the State Senate. —Meaghan McGoldrick

Dueling Developments Proposed for Sunset-Dyker Border BY HELEN KLEIN HKLEIN@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Sunset Residents Cry Foul on Massive Development BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

M

any Sunset Parkers have responded unfavorably to images of a mega-development proposed for Eighth Avenue at 62nd Street, first reported by New York YIMBY. Sunset Park residents, current and former, think the proposal, a two-block-long plan designed by DXA Studio for the 240,000-square-foot lot that, YIMBY said, “will include two blocks of retail on each side of the development, condominiums, office space, restaurants, a hotel, a gymnasium with pool, public park space, and community facilities,” could result in chaos at an area that is already considered to be highly congested with both people and cars. The developer for the project — which came about in response to the release of a Request for Proposals by the MTA last December — is New Empire Corp. This plan is in addition to another mega-development planned for a vacant piece of property abutting Eighth Avenue at 62nd Street that would combine a two-story retail complex, functioning as the base for a total 12-story residential tower with 250 apartments fronting on Seventh Avenue, a 12-story commercial tower fronting on Eighth Avenue and an 11-story hotel tower planned for mid-block. “The issue I have is infrastructure-based,” said Hector Santiago, who lived in Sunset for 33 years. “Parking is an endemic issue in Sunset Park, especially with the changes to loading zones. Secondly, electrical. Sunset has historically had many fires in underground electrical areas due to surges. Then there are the sinkholes from faulty sewage and water lines that have plagued the area. I personally feel the infrastructure in the area and surrounding isn't up to par to deal with such a massive new load. Eighth Avenue isn't known for huge structures, mostly typical four floor buildings.” “That area is severely congested and chaotic,” added local Ninoshka Garrick. “Adding this complex will just make it worse, if not planned with the community's needs and input. And what's the guarantee that when the complex is built, it will truly be open to the residents.” She also questioned the affordability of the apartments and shopping. “I'm all for growth but if it's not conducive

The site. to the neighborhood or its residents, the chaos and congestion this will bring will be unnecessary and cause more harm than good,” she said. Former resident Tom Lyons concurred. “In an already heavily congested, over populated area and with an already fragile infrastructure, this would be quite a feat,” he said. Tony Giordano, founder of Facebook group Sunset Parker, said his group had sent a letter to elected officials

in 2014 asked that one mixed-use, three-story building including a hotel, condos and offices in the same area not move forwards without a “very detailed and wide ranged Environmental Impact Study. “Life is about change; not to change is to stagnate and die,” he said regarding the proposal. “This development could be a wonderful thing for Dyker Heights, Sunset Park and Bay Ridge but we must have a full-blown Environmental

Impact Statement to address the impacts on vehicular traffic — cars, trucks and for-hire vehicles; on our current subway and bus traffic — especially subway, given the series of breakdowns, not just in actual service but in communication; on air quality; and on the treatment of wastewater at Owl's Head (where the emission of foul smells has remained a mystery for 20 years).” Beyond that, Giordano said, issues also include, “The lack of open space, recreational space and park land (when Greenwood Cemetery is subtracted from Community Board 7's open space figure, we fall behind other communities to a dangerous level of deprivation), parking and electric grid inadequacies causing brownouts and blackouts each summer. “A project of this magnitude requires an equal investment in our surrounding infrastructure; to do less would be the equivalent of building a skyscraper on a foundation of sand–it will fail,” added Giordano.

Congressional Candidate Takes Time Off for Military Training BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

candidate running for a Brooklyn congressional seat had to take time off from the campaign trail because Uncle Sam called him to duty. Democrat Max Rose, who is challenging incumbent Republican-Conservative U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan in the Nov. 6 election, left the campaign trail for two weeks to take part in training exercises with his National Guard unit, his campaign announced. The training exercises began during the week of Aug. 5. Rose, a decorated U.S. Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, is a company commander with the 69th Infantry Battalion. Rose could have sought a postponement of his National Guard training, but chose not to, according to his campaign. "I did not think twice about leaving the campaign trail to report for National Guard training with my unit,”

Rose said in a statement issued prior to his departure. “Serving in the Army and now the Guard has been an incredible honor, and I would never put the campaign before my fellow soldiers. In fact, the problem with Congress today is that politicians are putting their re-elections ahead of our country, and that’s not who I am.” Rose served as a ranger-qualified infantry captain in the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan, where he was awarded a Purple Heart for injuries he sustained in an explosion. He also earned a Bronze Star. Rose, who beat a crowded field of several candidates in the Democratic primary in June, is hoping to unseat Donovan, the former Staten Island district attorney who won the seat in New York’s 11th Congressional District in 2015 and who is running for re-election. The district covers the entire borough of Staten Island and includes all or parts of several Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods like Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Gravesend.

Donovan easily beat back a primary challenge from former Congressmember Michael Grimm in June. Jessica Proud, Donovan’s campaign spokesperson, congratulated Rose on his service to the nation and pointed out Donovan’s record on working for a better deal for military service members. "We thank Mr. Rose for his service. Today, Dan is proud to welcome the president to New York to sign the National Defense Authorization Act, which gives our troops the largest pay raise in nine years and provides critical infrastructure funding to rebuild our military to meet today's challenges. Ensuring our troops and our veterans are taken care of with the resources they need continues to be one of Congressman Donovan's top priorities," Proud told this newspaper on Aug. 13. President Donald Trump visited Fort Drum in northwest New York on Monday to sign the National Defense Authorization Act, which gives military personnel a 2.6 percent pay raise.

Deliveryman detained at Fort Hamilton returns to Bay Ridge BY HELEN KLEIN HKLEIN@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

O

n Friday, August 10, Pablo Villavicencio returned to Bay Ridge. It was the first time the pizza deliveryman, who is undocumented, had been in the neighborhood since Friday, June 1, the day he attempted to bring an order to Fort Hamilton and found himself arrested and put into Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, leading to a 53-day confinement in a New Jersey jail before he was finally freed on judge’s orders as he attempts to legalize his status. Villavicencio visited the neighborhood with wife Sandra Chica, and their two daughters, Luciana, 4, and Antonia, 2, to thank Councilmember Justin Brannan, who was one of the first people to work to publicize his case. They all had lunch in the private room at the back of the ebrooklyn media/Photo by Helen Klein Bridgeview Diner, Third Avenue Pablo Villavicencio, wife Sandra, their daughters Luciana and and 92nd Street, and this writer was Antonia and attorney Jennifer Williams with Councilmember one of two journalists privileged to Justin Brannan. attend.

Among the worst times in jail for Villavicencio were the 72 hours he spent in what was called “the box,” in which the person who is confined is kept separated from everyone else. That occurred when he first got there. While the 53 days passed slowly, with little to do, “A lot of people in a similar situation spend even more time there, six, nine months,” he said. Villavicencio’s nearly two months in jail were not only difficult for him, but for his family. While Chica told the couple’s young daughters that their dad was working, his absence took a toll. “My daughters were suffering a lot,” said Chica. “Nobody could believe how this impacts them. When I had to take them to the jail, they were asking why we had to leave him there. They know he used to work in a restaurant, and asked why they didn’t see tables.” Among the family events he missed was his older daughter’s birthday. “She was very upset,” said Chica. “She said, he’s not here to cut my cake. Why?” Now, he said, when he goes to do something — even in another room — they ask, “Daddy, where are you going?” It’s been a tough couple of months, but the family is deeply appreciative of all the assistance that has been proffered. “That’s the reason we are here,” said Chica. “We are really grateful. A lot of people helped us, and because of them, Pablo is here with us.” Villavicencio said that he knew about the support while he was confined, and that it heartened him. “I watched the news on TV and saw a lot of people arrested for me,” he recalled. The process of legalization for undocumented residents is a long one. According to Williams, it could take another year and a half or two years before it is complete. In the meantime, Villavicencio’s fight is paying dividends for others in similar situations. “I was happy and proud yesterday when I heard another guy had been released, and the judge made the decision thinking about his case,” said Chica. “We suffered for like two months, but maybe a lot of people will get benefit from it. It’s been very difficult but we’re happy other people are getting released because of the decision of the judge.”

POLICE BEAT WHAT THE TRUCK: TRACTOR TRAILER HITS OVERPASS ON BELT BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

A

n incident involving a massive tractor trailer led to a brief traffic tieup on the Belt Parkway Tuesday morning, August 14 after witnesses say the truck — belonging to a company called Palos Garza Transportation

— appeared to have struck a pedestrian overpass between Exits 5 and 6 sometime before 10 a.m. The tractor trailer was traveling eastbound between Bath Beach and Gravesend when it hit the walkway, though the truck — badly damaged — did manage to make its way to the shoulder of the parkway, minimizing traffic congestion. According to the Department of Transportation, commercial vehicles, trucks and tractor trailers are not allowed on New York State parkways.

Once the check had cleared, he was told to transfer $40,000 electronically to a Citibank account and send a check to a specific person for $10,000. After the victim sent the total of $50,000, the original check was rejected by the victim’s bank, and an affidavit of fraud was issued. No arrests have been made. GRAND CROOK: A 44-year-old man living near Bay Ridge Parkway and Narrows Avenue was the victim of grand larceny as fraudulently obtained bank cards in his name were used by an unknown crook, who withdrew thousands of dollars from the victim’s bank account.

No arrests have been made. BURGLAR NABS OVER $3K OF STUFF: An apartment on 81st Street between 18th and 19th Avenues was broken into by an unknown burglar, who stole around $3,300 of property, including electronics, jewelry and credit cards on Monday, August 6 at around 9 a.m. Reports say that the crook broke in through the bedroom window and removed protective bars from the basement window. No arrests have been made. SUSPECT ARRESTED FOR ASSAULTING WOMAN IN HER APARTMENT: A 29-year-old man was arrested for allegedly choking a 22-year-old woman inside an apartment at West Fourth Street and 65th Street on Saturday, August 4. Reports say that at around 5 a.m. the suspect broke into the apartment and started arguing with the victim and her friends. The suspect then threw the victim on the bed and choked her. He also punched the windows in the hallway, resulting in cuts to his hands, before the victim managed to get the alleged perp out of the apartment.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Fort’s Presence Contributes To Steady Growth, Stability Of Community Institutions

Case in Point: Bay Ridge Lawyers Association, Now in its Seventh Decade, Participates in Leukemia/Lymphoma “Light the Night Walk”

Last week we started what might loosely be called a series of articles to demonstrate the long-lasting and defining effects the historic Fort Hamilton Army Base has had on contiguous neighborhoods throughout its existence. Even those who live in Bay Ridge may not have connected or appreciated how the community’s ongoing quality of life is related in large part to the presence of the Fort Hamilton Army Base. Proof of this thesis lies, we might suggest, in the longevity and success of local Bay Ridge organizations. The Dyker Heights Civic Association and Bay Ridge Community Council have each served us for more than 60 years. Then we have the Brooklyn Spectator newspaper, founded back in 1933, and the Home Reporter newspa-

per, founded in 1953.

Bay Ridge Lawyers Association Embraced Becker’s Health Cause

Another organization — one we believe could only launch and flourish in a very stable and family-oriented neighborhood — is the Bay Ridge Lawyers Association (BRLA), which is well along into its seventh decade. There is no other neighborhood bar association anywhere in the city — and, most likely, New York State — that could match the decades-long record of the BRLA. Some of our state’s top lawyers, judges and officeholders have proudly served as members. One outstanding barrister, Ray Ferrier, has served the BRLA in just about every capacity over the past 50 years and, appropriately, he will be the first living BRLA member ever to be

awarded the status of “fellow” at an upcoming fall meeting. With the BRLA, it’s not just about law; it’s about supporting causes that matter to everybody. A good example is the group’s strong backing of the local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s “Light the Night Walk,” set for Oct. 13. This annual event raises funds to battle lymphoma and other serious blood diseases. In the case of the BRLA, this cause is personal. The group’s very concerned members got involved several years back when then-Vice President Lisa Becker was stricken and faced lifethreatening consequences. Her courage was an inspiration to her colleagues and her community. This year, we’re pleased to report, it is a vibrant and smiling Becker who is organizing and leading the BRLA effort, which will get underway at 5:30 p.m. on the Great Lawn of the College

of Staten Island, 2800 Victory Blvd., Staten Island, NY 10314.

Becker’s Message Invites Lawyers And All Others Who Care to Help

Becker’s letter, which she sent to BRLA officers, board members and committee chairs, among others, reads, “It is that time of year again for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s ‘Light the Night Walk’ … The actual walk starts at 7 p.m. sharp. Last year, several members of our association met at about 6 p.m. and we walked together at this amazing event. We raised almost $3,300 and we received an award for raising the second-largest amount! “We had such a nice turnout last year and I would love for everyone to try to attend this year and walk with us as we try to raise lots of [money] for this very important cause. You all know how important this cause is to me and how important it is for them to find a cure for these dreadful blood diseases! Thank you!” To donate to this worthwhile cause, visit the BRLA fundraising page at https://pages.lightthenight.org/nyc/Stat enIs18/bayridgelawyersassociationlisabeckermercante. It’s worth pointing out that the BRLA has been consistent in the quality of its leadership, as incoming President Joseph Vasile is succeeding Margaret Stanton. Each president likes to leave a stamp on his or her tenure, and we’re sure that Stanton is particularly pleased that the holiday party she and the other officers initiated last year for the benefit of appreciative children will become a tradition in the years to come. Vasile will be assisted by a talented slate, including Vice President MaryAnn Stathopoulos, Recording Secretary William S. Gillen, Treasurer Dominic Famulari and Corresponding Secretary Adam Kalish. Class of 2017-2019 board members are Yolanda Guadagnoli, Helen Galette, Grace Borrino and Mario Romano. Members of the Class of 2018-2020 are Charles Boulbol, Antoinetta M. Monaco, Matthew Elias and Steve Spinelli.

FIGHTING BACK

lthough I had an interest in politics as a kid, helping to distribute literature for a wide range of local candidates, it was 1977 when I became fully emerged in political activities. The connection came through the local Conservative Party Leader Gene Walsh and Brooklyn Leader Mike Long. Both had been incredibly active in their communities, working with everyone while they represented their conservative philosophy. I was fortunate to have learned from these two gentleman as well as many others, including Assemblymember Florence Sullivan, whom I worked for while in college. Everyone, regardless of party, worked to make the community better. Sure, we did not always agree and there was as Chris Mega used to say the “silly season” every year, which he defined as the three or four months before a general election and that usually involved those active in politics sometimes confronting each other. Once in a while, there would be an argument about who took down

whose poster in a store. And of course there were civil but loud debates in which each side showed up in force to cheer and sometimes argue in the lobby. We all knew each other from church or civics or school or just the neighborhood. The point simply was that we were all community residents who ultimately wanted the same thing, and we all really did get along. That was then. Today, due to the way some newer residents participate in community politics, the community seems to have become a victim to politics. The newer political group calls itself Fight Back Bay Ridge. It tried and failed to keep itself under the political radar and was forced to file a registration with the state Board of Elections declaring itself a political action committee with an agenda to elect or defeat candidates for public office. In this case, it would be to elect Democrats to public office. To me, this was simply politics as usual. A new political group comes into play, gets slapped for a failure to

‘Making Strides Against Breast Cancer’ Celebrates 16th Anniversary in Brooklyn BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

P

ink balloons and ribbons filled Gargiulo’s Restaurant in Coney Island on Wednesday, Aug. 8 as over 300 local breast cancer survivors, caregivers, volunteers and civic leaders joined the American Cancer Society (ACS) in celebrating the 16th anniversary of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. This year’s kickoff ceremony provided community members with the opportunity to learn how to get involved in the Brooklyn cancer walk slated for Oct. 21 along the Coney Island Boardwalk and at MCU Park. It also highlighted how individuals, businesses and organizations all across the borough can support ACS’s work to help save lives from breast cancer. Last year, 25,000 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Brooklyn walkers helped to raise more than $742,000. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a noncompetitive event that raises awareness and funds to help end breast cancer and provide hope to ensure that no one faces breast cancer alone. Desiree Carton, spokesperson, ACS, served as host for the evening as survivors and supporters gathered together and shared their inspirational stories about their battles with cancer. Deena Jackson, dressed all in pink, sat in a wheelchair with a smile that beamed across her face. She thanked the staff at Brookdale Hospital for their support in her fight. Diagnosed with an aggressive form of Stage 3 breast cancer, Jackson recounted

Reaching-Out Services Seeks Supplies for Back-to-School Drive BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

H

undreds of Brooklyn kids whose parents are struggling financially will still be able to start school in style next month, thanks to a non-profit group that is organizing a backpack giveaway to take place next week. Reaching-Out Community Services Inc. will hold Operation Backpack on Aug. 23 for children from families registered in the organization’s food pantry program. Located at 7708 New Utrecht Ave. in Bensonhurst, Reaching-Out Community Services (RCS) is a multi-purpose group that operates a food pantry and offers social service referrals to residents having trouble making ends meet. Thomas Neve, the group’s founder and executive director, said he has enough backpacks to distribute to children for Operation Backpack, but is seeking donations of school supplies, including pens, pencils, notebooks, binders, loose leaf paper, and rulers. “We have the backpacks. We always go out and buy them ahead of time. But we want to make sure the kids have something to put in the backpacks, so we need supplies,” Neve told this newspaper on Aug. 14. Neve said he expects to hand out at least 500 backpacks on Aug. 23. Anyone interested in making a donation can drop off school supplies at RCS at 7708 New Utrecht Ave. The office is open Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. RCS has been conducting backpack giveaways for eight years. Operation Backpack is not open to the public. But the day is usually a busy one for kids, Neve said. At the events held in previous years, children were given backpacks at the door and were then invited to visit tables that were set up with school supplies so that they could fill their new backpacks with the items they needed to start off the school year right. “We’re not looking to give the kids designer sneakers. We’re talking basic supplies,” Neve said. Children must come from families who are already registered as clients of RCS to be eligible to take part in the

The Operation Backpack program draws hundreds of children each year to Reaching-Out Community Services in Bensonhurst. backpack giveaway. Neve, a retired New York City sanitation worker, founded RCS in 1992 and immediately began operating a food

pantry. In 1996, the pantry became the first of its kind to operate like a supermarket. Under the system, patrons are allowed to select the items they want to

take home to eat, as opposed to other charitable pantries in which food items are given to recipients by workers. RCS was an outgrowth of charitable efforts Neve had made earlier. Starting in 1989, he drove a van around Bensonhurst on his time off from work and gave food to the homeless. Within a few years, RCS expanded its services to provide additional help for struggling residents, including assistance applying for food stamp benefits and other government programs. There are currently 9,000 families registered with RCS that receive assistance on a regular basis. For more information about Operation Backpack, visit www.rcsprograms.org or call the group’s Events Hotline at 917-509-9055.

Ridge political divide takes shape beyond Summer Stroll BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

Bay Ridge political back-andforth which erupted on social media in the wake of the August 3 Summer Stroll on Third has led to questions of legality, and it has more to do with just balloons and tote bags. Days before the stroll – where liberal activist group Fight Back Bay Ridge distributed stop-sign shaped fans and yellow tote bags filled with literature detailing state Sen. Marty Golden’s voting and driving record, while the pol’s staff handed out yellow balloons with his name on them – the pol’s re-election rep penned a letter urging the New York State Board of Elections (BOE) to investigate the grassroots group, which, Golden’s campaign claims, had failed to register as an independent expenditure committee despite raising funds to unseat the longtime pol. Following the stroll, objections to Fight Back Bay Ridge’s campaign were also raised on Facebook and Twitter by Golden staffer John Quaglione, in a post that garnered hundreds of comments as area residents debated whether, as Quaglione asserted, the people at the event for Fight Back Bay Ridge were aggressive in their efforts, a complaint that members of the group flatly deny. The letter, penned by Golden’s campaign spokesperson Michael Tobman, focuses on Fight Back Bay Ridge’s distribution of flyers, as well as its creation of a GoFundMe page to fund the printing of literature as well as “other ideas that will help unseat Marty Golden.” Tobman has also written to GoFundMe in hopes of getting the site to remove the fundraiser. To date, it has raised more than $1,500 towards its $2,000 goal. In his letter to the BOE, Tobman claims that Fight Back Bay Ridge “is clearly violating a number of provisions to Section 14 of the New York State Election Law by engaging in campaign activities against” the pol, who is up for re-election this November. The GoFundMe’s description, Tobman continues, “makes it clear that the goal of the effort is to influence the

outcome of an election, and that they are fundraising for overt, specific campaign activities.” To do this, Tobman claims, Fight Back Bay Ridge must have first registered with the BOE as an independent expenditure committee. The group had its own rebuttal. Its attorney, Bay Ridge resident Eugene Strupinsky, sent the pol’s office a cease and desist letter demanding that Golden’s staffers stop “discouraging and criminalizing” the group’s First Amendment rights to free speech – with Quaglione’s post and subsequent comA family with ments made by fellow Golden staffer Quaglione can Arlene Rutuelo, a complain about us — he has the focal point.

"Fight Back Bay Ridge, immediately filing as a campaign committee with the Board of Elections when challenged, finally admits what common sense suggested all along,” Tobman told this paper. “Whatever their spin otherwise, Fight Back Bay Ridge is an election effort opposite Senator Golden, and everything they say should be filtered through that lens.” As of Tuesday, August 14, all of Fight Back Bay Ridge’s paperwork had been sent to the BOE. The group is just waiting on confirmation and finalization, until which, McMahon told this paper, members will not be spending any money “in an election capacity.” “It is my belief that this was another attempt from Golden’s office to prevent Fight Back Bay Ridge from participating in our neighborhood and exercising our freedom of speech against Golden,” McMahon said, adding that, if all goes through with the BOE, the registration will allow Fight Back Bay Ridge to expand its operation. “It seems like Marty and his staff have inadvertently helped Fight Back Bay Ridge level up,” she said. As for the cease and desist letter, Tobman responded, “Concerning their lawyer's letter, which to my mind reeked of nervousness, my response is this: Saying something doesn't make it so, facts matter, and move on.”

Sunset Park BID introduces David Estrada as new exec director BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

he Sunset Park Business Improvement District has a new executive director. David Estrada, former chief of staff for Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, was officially named to the post during the BID's annual meeting on Wednesday, June 27, which was held in the BID office, 5116A Fifth Avenue. Starting Sunday, July 1, Estrada replaced Renee Giordano, who served the position for 20 years before retiring towards the end of last year. Since Giordano’s retirement, Cathy Williams has served as interim executive director. The new executive director is thrilled to be a part of the BID family. “This is fantastic,” he said. “What really makes me happy is the idea of being able to focus on the specific geography of the BID, roughly 35th to 64th Streets. It just gives a focus to the work for merchants, building owners and residents. It is going to be great. We’re building on an already successful BID. This has been a historically active BID and I think that is a strong base to work forward from.” The search for Giordano’s successful was a long and trying process as the job was advertised back in November. “There were a series of interviews that took place leading up to the holiday season, but that didn’t result in a successful match and then there was another round of interviews and open advertisement of the job in the early spring and that’s what led to my employment,” Estrada added “We took our time,” said BID president Llamil Nuñez. “We didn’t want to rush. We wanted to get someone in here who could hit the ground running, who would be good for the BID.” Estrada, who is originally from San Diego before moving to south Brooklyn, where he’s lived for 30 years, believes that his passion for work within the community makes the job an ideal fit for him. “My career is focused on community service but a big part of my professional life has been involved

“We got a wonderful person who not only is well qualified, but has been involved with this community for a number of years,” said member Delvis Valdes. “We are definitely excited to have him on board,” Nuñez added. “He has great communication skills and a great relationship with people in the city. That’s one of the things we really liked about him.” Estrada plans to get to work right away on advocating for Fifth Avenue’s merchants, business owners and residents. “We need a little more diversity and outreach to increase the number and variety of people that are feeling not only that they’re helping the BID, but that the BID is helping them,” he said. “My initial work is going to be a lot of visiting, knocking on doors, asking questions, listening to people, doing some direct polling and looking for opportunities for making avenue successful as can be. All the things a BID can do are at the center of the work, such as sanitation, graffiti removal, streetscape improvements, business promotion, filling vacancies, filling street vendors, and commercial waste hauling.”

sometimes you have lobbyists … we had no lobbyists, we had no conservancy. We did this the old-fashioned way!” Joining Treyger in his effort was fellow Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, of the 48th District, which includes significant portions of the Riegelmann Boardwalk. “They mud wrestle all the time over whose district has more of the boardwalk,” Johnson quipped. “At the end of the day,” said Deutsch, “no matter what ethnic background you’re from, or what culture you represent, when it comes to issues, we’re all the same, and they’re all important to us.” “The boardwalk is a big part of what brought the fairly new city of New York together,” Treyger said later. “Before it came into being, much of this land was private, and many people weren’t allowed access,

or had to pay. Once the boardwalk was opened, however, people from all walks of life, all races and religions, came together here. And their differences really weren’t as important in this place.” With its status as NYC’s 11th scenic landmark established, the Riegelmann Boardwalk will require additional layers of oversight before significant alterations can take place. Moreover, the city landmark law requires there to be a boardwalk between Ocean Parkway and West 37th Street in perpetuity. According to Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Marty Maher, the Reigelmann Boardwalk is 2.4 miles long, comprised of 1.3 million boards, which are held in place by 18 million nails and screws. “I had some extra time on my hands,” Maher said with a laugh, “so I counted each one.” Henceforth, each one of them is now protected by NYC law.

Gopee, Kahlil Robert Irving, Alex Jackson, Devin N. Morris, Kenny Rivero, Shikeith and Vaughn Spann, curated by Project Space Director, Tess Sol Schwab. Taking inspiration from the numerous block parties that enliven our neighborhood in the summer, the exhibition takes a more critical look at the importance of these community gatherings. Not just a simple get together, block parties strengthen community ties and often function as a town hall to discuss larger issues affecting the neighborhood including violence, immigration, sexuality and race.

Hazlewood’s intriguing, ongoing project UNSAYABLE. While many of the things he makes are ephemeral, they tend to respond to the light, space and surfaces where they are installed. Beside the painted/ constructed environments he creates on occasion, Hazlewood makes discrete/ specific ‘things’. Most transmute into defined formal objects; shape, scale, light, color, materials, etc., all are manipulated as a way to bring the work alive in the presence of the viewer.

Using the events of 9/11, the 2003 Northeast Blackout, Hurricane Sandy and other severe weather events as examples, the exhibition reveals the critical role that mass transit personnel play in preparing for and responding to

natural and man-made disasters. Through a vibrant display of objects, photographs, media, and personal accounts, the exhibition highlights the technical and professional skills needed to restore public transportation service and get New Yorkers moving again after crisis strikes.

Her immersive murals surround the viewer with nature rendered in monochromatic tones, a color palette that references historic naturalist engravings and warns of a future in which the rainforest exists only in the past. By installing depictions of nature in urban settings, Arocha’s murals draw parallels between the diverse ecosystems of Colombia and the cultural flourishing

of her current Brooklyn neighborhood.

Artifacts, archival materials, video, and first-hand interviews, come together to share the stories of the people who skated at Empire during the 70s and 80s and will immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the rink. Through the examined histories of and around Empire, connections between roller skating and larger narratives of race, class, and urbanization in America are uncovered. Beyond the roller disco movement, the exhibit traces the history of roller skating in the United States, highlighting the diversity of rinks around the country and the unique history of skating in New York City, which was home to over 20 rinks at its skating peak When: Thursdays-Sundays through October 14th, 12 – 6 p.m.

Where: Williamsburg/The City Reliquary Museum (370 Metropolitan Avenue) CECILIA VICUNA: DISAPPEARED QUIPO For millennia, ancient peoples of the Andes created quipus—complex record-keeping devices, made of knotted cords, that served as an essential medium for reading and writing, registering and remembering. New York– based Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña has devoted a significant part of her artistic practice to studying, interpreting, and reactivating the quipus, which were banned by the Spanish during their colonization of South America. Drawing on her indigenous heritage, Vicuña channels this ancient, sensorial mode of communication into immersive installations and participatory performances When: Wednesdays-Sundays through November 25th, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m., Thursdays: 11 a.m. – 10 p.m. Where: Crown Heights/ Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway) BROOKLYN: A NEW HOME, A NEW LIFE This exhibition features stories about historical Brooklynites: Harriet Judson, John Roebling, Nathan Handwerker, and Shirley Chisholm, as well as Ravi Ragbir, a

B’klyn DA: Low-Level Marijuana Prosecutions 91 Percent FACESDown BEHIND By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn

His office announced on Friday that low-level marijuana prosecutions have dropped by more than 91 percent between January and June of this year. Gonzalez said that due to the success of the new policy the Brooklyn DA’s Office will continue to decline to prosecute most marijuana cases. “Aggressive enforcement and prosecution of personal possession and use of marijuana does not keep us safer, and the glaring racial disparities in who is and is Taken together, the number of cases that were accepted for prosecunot arrested have contributed to a sense tion this year declined from 349 in January to 29 in June — a drop of among many in our communities that the 91.6 percent.

Catholic Media Groups Partner to Cover World Meeting of Families in Ireland By Francesca Norsen Tate INBrooklyn

Currents News and Crux, a Catholic news website, are partnering to provide in-depth coverage of the World Meeting of Families in Dublin, Ireland next week. Held triennially, the celebration hosts hundreds of thousands of people and is the world’s largest Catholic gathering of families. The meeting, from August 21-26, will feature an open-air Mass with Pope Francis, as well as workshops and presentations. It comes in the wake of a vote to reform abortion laws and takes place nearly a decade after Ireland’s clerical sex abuse scandal first broke. Once deemed the most “Catholic country,” Ireland is witnessing its church advocating a new chapter and mission for the family in the context of the 21st century. During the weeklong event, Currents News and Crux will explore theology, doctrine, liturgy, practices and traditions of Catholicism in the context of the life of modern-day Catholics, giving full voice to disagreements and challenges facing the church and believers. The Diocese of Brooklyn’s DeSales Media produces Currents News. Currents’ Liz Faublas will anchor coverage from New York,

while correspondents Michelle Powers and Tim Harfmann will report from Ireland. Members of Crux’s editorial team will offer analysis and expertise. Concurrently, Currents News’ reports will appear on Crux’s website. Television coverage will take place from Monday, Aug. 20 to Friday, Aug. 24 on NET-TV’s Currents News at 7:30 p.m. EDT.

Extended live coverage will begin with Pope Francis’s arrival in Dublin on Saturday, Aug. 25 at 5:30 a.m. EDT, and then again on Sunday, Aug. 26 at 4:15 a.m. Currents News airs on NETTV in the New York City area on Spectrum, channel 97; Optimum, channel 30; and Verizon Fios, channel 48. Live streaming is available at netny.tv.

Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church and Pastor Klaus Dieter Gress welcomed the Vivida Banda Youth Choir from Germany last week as part of the ensemble’s first U.S. tour. Vivida Banda, whose youths and parents describe themselves as a big intergenerational family, sings in several languages. They opened their full-length, twohour concert on the outdoor steps of the church on Henry Street with a spiritual, “Jesus in the Morning.” The ensemble then moved into the sanctuary, reprising this opening hymn and offering a wide repertoire of English-language pieces, including “What a Wonderful World” (made famous by Louis Armstrong), “You Raise Me Up” and “The Storm Is Passing Over,” as well as German and Swedish songs. They crunched a demanding tour into about three days, also singing at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. The youths are also part of the Singschule of the Chöre Peterskirche Weinheim, where they begin their musical training as early as toddlers. They describe the Singschule as an intergenerational family that offers several different types of choir experiences, from toddler and youth choirs to elder choir and the Adult Kantorei in between. They also have bands and a Gospel choir. The choir’s founder/choral director is Anne Christine Langenbach. Her husband Simon is piano accompanist. Their son Jakob plays trumpet. The youths’ biggest surprise about New York City: “the food,” Miriam, a choir member, told INBrooklyn. “I think there are a lot of small things standing out, for example, how different the food is and how everyone is so nice. But I think what really stood out to me was when we went to Times Square yesterday in the evening—because it is way bigger than everything I have ever seen in my life. The [food] portions are bigger and there are so many more items. You know, you don’t just order a burger, you order a burger and then you order four different toppings for that.” Her choirmate Isabelle quickly found a corpus metaphor for New York City: “There are just so many pieces, so many different stories coming together as whole, and if you walk down the streets you see so many different situations of life coming together, it’s just beautiful.”

Come See Recently Sold Homes in Manhattan Beach By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Go big or go home. That's the unofficial motto of developers in Manhattan Beach. Whenever we're hit with a sudden bout of nostalgia for Miami, where we lived many years ago, we head to Manhattan Beach for a stroll. Many big, beautiful houses on this Brooklyn peninsula remind us of South Florida mansions. Other homes, though not evocative of Miami, are also big, beautiful and interesting to look at. Even on the steamiest summer day, it's great fun to walk around Manhattan Beach. Atlantic Ocean breezes will keep you from overheating and keeling over. The other day, we went and tracked down some lovely houses — and a development site — that changed hands recently. We also snapped photos of Manhattan Beach's most eye-catching houses. See related story.

This is a glimpse of 321 Hampton Ave.

Head to Manhattan Beach for a Staycation Day By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Staycations are good for the soul. Sometimes you really need a quick getaway from your life, but spare cash for an airplane ticket and a hotel room is in short supply. Any summer staycation worthy of the name calls for at least one day at the beach. Coney Island is dreamy, of course, an ideal staycation getaway for New York City residents. We're obsessively devoted to its famous landmarks like the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute Jump. And a walk down its cherished Boardwalk will take you to Brighton Beach, where you can eat borscht at beachfront Russian

cafes. But today we're going to extol the virtues of Brooklyn's other point of access to the Atlantic Ocean — Manhattan Beach. That's the name of both an excellent public beach and the surrounding peninsular neighborhood. A sign posted on Oriental Boulevard, which runs through the middle of the neighborhood, refers to Manhattan Beach as “Brooklyn by the Sea.� We like the sound of that. Manhattan Beach Park is a 40-acre recreation area that opened in 1955. The city created it to help alleviate crowded conditions on Coney Island's beach. The parkland in Manhattan Beach had belonged to the federal government, which had acquired it during World War II for use as the Coast Guard and Maritime Training Station. The beach is beautiful. When we went for a visit on a prime beach-going day — a hot, sunny August Sunday — we found a mellow, happy scene.

This Sale Broke the $3 Million Threshold

A developer named Corbin Group Inc. sold a newly built stucco house at 228 Corbin Place in March for $3.3 million, city Finance Department records indicate. In 2016, Corbin Group Inc., with Salvatore Calcagno as its authorized signatory, had bought the property for $1.6 million from Corbin Corp. with Munzer Elayyan as president, Finance Department records show. Brodmore LLC with Vadeem Brodsky as member and Corbin Corp. had jointly purchased the property for $1.2 million in 2007. It was vacant residential land at that time, the deed indicates. In 2016, Brodmore LLC transferred its one-third stake in 228 Corbin Place to Corbin Corp. The public record doesn't show how much money, if any, changed hands in this transaction. The couple who sold the site to Brodmore LLC and Corbin Corp. had inherited it in 1994, Finance Department records show. The house is near the Atlantic Ocean shoreline.

By the Sea, by the Sea, by the Beautiful Sea

* According to Finance Department records, on another block that dead-ends in a scenic way at the Atlantic Ocean, a beautiful house at 221 Coleridge St. sold for $2.5 million in April 2017.

Eye on Real

Developers go big in Manhattan Beach. For example, this Hampton Avenue house was enlarged in the 1990s.

This handsome house is the recently sold 228 Corbin Place.

E State

Come See Recently Sold Homes in Manhattan Beach — Continued frompage 18INB — City Buildings Department filings suggest the sellers had renovated the house after their $1.26 million purchase of it in February 2016. That price also comes from Finance Department records, of course. • On the next street over, on a block that also ends at the Atlantic Ocean, a handsome brick house at 267 Dover St. sold for $2.45 million in May 2017, Finance Department records indicate. This home was constructed in the late 1990s. The sellers had paid $2.2 million for it in 2015, Finance Department records show. Before that, 267 Dover St. had been sold for $990,000 in 2004. • On the next street, on yet another block with a scenic seaside dead-end, an LLC purchased a house that has fallen into disrepair and has an enormous yard for $2.2 million, Finance Department records indicate. The transaction was an estate sale. It closed in May. The address of the house is 228 Exeter St. In June, the purchaser filed a Buildings Department application for a demolition permit.

My City by the Bay

Hark! It's 137 Hastings St., which sold for slightly more than $3 INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan million.

• On a block that's close to Sheepshead Bay — in this instance we mean the body of water, not the neighborhood — a house at 137 Hastings St. sold for $3.06 million in March, Finance Department records indicate. The five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot house has a garage, two terraces and a large back yard with a deck, a posting by listing broker Douglas Elliman says. The seller had bought the property for $1.73 million in 2006, Finance Department records show. • A house on the corner of Oriental Boulevard, which runs through the center of Manhattan Beach, sold in May for $2,565,990, Finance Department records show. The address is 195 Kensington St. Buildings Department filings suggest the seller had enlarged the house after buying it in 2014. According to Finance Department records, that purchase had been made for $1.2 million.

Head to Manhattan Beach for a Staycation Day — Continued from page 18INB — There were lots of people ensconced on the sand beneath beach umbrellas, and lots more splashing in the refreshing waves. But it wasn't crowded in a claustrophobia-inducing way.

Nostalgia for Miami Beach

You're never, ever going to think any beach at the north end of the Eastern Seaboard resembles Miami Beach. It's located in a tropical zone, so the sea is a pretty color and palm trees abound. Its Art Deco-style hotels and homes will knock your socks off. But. Keep this in mind the next time you're hit with a wave of nostalgia for Miami Beach. You can find echoes of it on the streets of Manhattan Beach. Numerous houses in the neighborhood have a Miami Moderne look. They're brightly painted stucco that's beautiful in hot sunlight, have sleek lines and are situated just a block or two from the ocean. Their presence makes a stroll through the neighborhood an entertaining part of a staycation day. One of our favorite Manhattan Beach houses can be found at 293 Amherst St., right on the ocean. It's got a white stucco and glass-brick facade and is designed with lots of curving

walls. It reminds us of the glamorous architecture that was showcased on “Miami Vice,” the iconic 1980s TV series. Another great Miami Beach-style house is at 295 Corbin Place, which also stands beside the ocean — as does 293 Coleridge St.

Which Way to the Spanish Hacienda?

Also, check out Miami Beach-style 305 Hampton Ave., which is a golden-hued house a block away from the shore of Sheepshead Bay. Just down the street, 321 Hampton Ave. looks like a Spanish hacienda in a very Miami Beach kind of way. There are also eye-catching houses in other architectural styles. Some are Tudor-style designs. Some are big and elaborate. We love those, too. Some of the beautiful houses near the shoreline were damaged by Superstorm Sandy and haven't yet been repaired. We can imagine the anguish these homes' owners have been through, and we're saddened by it. When your day is done, you can walk across a picturesque, blue-painted footbridge that connects Manhattan Beach to the neighborhood of Sheepshead Bay. You'll wind up on Emmons Avenue, where there are numerous charming restaurants and cafes. Some have outside seating.

ST. FRANCIS ANIMAL HOSPITAL:

Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-affirming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.

At Home

M

any homeowners wish they had more storage space, and kitchens are one area where people seemingly can always use more storage. Despite a desire for more kitchen space, until recently, kitchen pantries fell out of favor. Builders and architects may have thought that close proximity to supermarkets as well as multi-use cabinets in kitchens would offset the need for pantries. But according to a recent survey from the National Association of Home Builders, a kitchen pantry is the most desirable kitchen feature for buyers in the market for a new home. According to a 2016 survey from ReportLinker, 98 percent of Americans say cooking at home is their preferred way to prepare a meal. And despite the wide array of restaurants, prepared meals and fast food options nearby, more than one-third of people cook at home daily,

with nearly 50 percent cooking between three and six days a week. In order to accommodate for spending more time in the kitchen, homeowners are directing additional attention to kitchen preparation and storage features. In fact, one recent trend in kitchen renovations is creating custom-designed pantries.

LOCATE THE APPROPRIATE SPACE

Ideally, pantries should be in or adjacent to the kitchen. But not every home layout allows for this setup. Some homeowners need to move storage pantries into the garage, the basement or a mud/laundry room. Various factors should be considered before placing a pantry outside a kitchen. What is the climate? Will food spoil? Is there a possibility that vermin or insects can infiltrate the room and access food? These factors will dictate

Design a more functional pantry

whether to have closed cabinets, airtight bins or open shelves or if other modifications must be made to the room prior to building.

CHOOSE THE TYPE OF PANTRY

Accessibility is essential in a pantry. Everything should be easily reached and grabbed as needed without having to move too many things. Ideally, foods should be arranged in a single layer so that all items can be viewed at a glance. Shelves of various depths and heights can accommodate items of different sizes. Adjustable shelves are ideal because they can be modified as foods change. Sliding drawers can improve reach in cabinets. In smaller spaces, French door-style reach-in cabinets are convenient and flexible. In complete kitchen remodels or new constructions, walk-in pantries offer the most space and flexibility.

MUST-HAVE FEATURES

Pantries serve different functions in different homes. For the bulk shopper, a pantry with plenty of room for large items will be needed. Lighting can be beneficial in all pantries. Lights can improve visibility when trying to locate items. Others prefer an outlet for charging hand-held vacuums or other small appliances. Counter space in the pantry enables homeowners to unload groceries directly onto pantry shelves. For pantries located outside of the kitchen, built-in freezers can maximize storage possibilities, especially for those who freeze-and-eat after bulk shopping ventures. Pantries are popular features that homeowners can customize depending on their storage needs and the amount of time they spend in their kitchens.

nother one for the books. The Merchants of Third Avenue celebrated its fourth and final Summer Stroll on Third on Friday, August 10. The fourth installment stretched from 80th to 90th Street and, once again, highlighted local businesses while giving Ridgeites a (quite literal) night out on the town. “I think we had a fabulous 2018,” said Third Avenue Merchants President Bob Howe of this year’s series. “The weather was perfect.” Despite some rainy weather this summer, all four Strolls made it through their weekly forecasts unscathed, with residents and businesses alike, Howe said, benefiting from the good fortune. “People, as always, appreciate seeing old friends on the avenue and I think that many of the restaurants and retailers were very happy to have a little boost during what are typically quieter days of the summer,” he told this paper. As for next year, he said, the Merchants are looking towards even “more innovative and engaging activities.” Though there are no more Strolls on Third for 2018, there will be one more Weekend Walk in Bay Ridge – the Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District’s F.A.C.E. of Fifth, a “Family, Arts, Culinary and Entertainment” event taking place on Friday, August 17 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. starting at Fifth Avenue and 73rd Street and ending at Fifth and 83rd. That event will include outdoor dining, an art walk, kids’ games, a silent disco and more.

School Board Colleague Urges City to Name Street After DiMango BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

Brooklyn civic leader who served alongside Mafalda DiMango on the local school board is leading an effort to convince the city to name the street corner outside P.S. 204 in Bensonhurst in memory of the iconic education advocate who died Aug. 2 at the age of 91. Carlo Scissura, president of the Federation of Italian-American Organizations of Brooklyn, and DiMango both served on the old Community School Board 20 in the 1990s and continued to serve after New York State scrapped the local school boards in 2002 and replaced them with community education councils. DiMango’s tenure as a school board member began back in the mid-1960s. Scissura said he has already spoken to city officials about the honorary naming of the street corner outside the school at 8101 15th Ave. Scissura wants to name the corner of 15th Avenue and 81st Street “Mafalda DiMango Way” after his friend and colleague. “There is a process and we have to go through that process. It has to be approved by the community board and the City Council, and the mayor has to sign it. But I haven’t talked to anyone who doesn’t think this is a great idea. I don’t want to wait a long time. I want to get this done,” Scissura told this newspaper on Aug. 14. If all goes well, the new street sign bearing DiMango’s name could be erected as early as the spring of 2019. Scissura also approached DiMango’s family with the idea. Judge Patricia DiMango, star of the CBS show “Hot Bench” is one of DiMango’s two daughters. She publicly endorsed the proposal at the funeral mass at the Shrine Church of Saint Bernadette in Dyker Heights on Aug. 6. “We’re going to get that done, right, Carlo?” she asked during the eulogy she delivered. The location for the street name proposal is no accident, according

to Scissura. “P.S. 204 is synonymous with Mafalda,” he said. “She went to school there, was a PTA president there and attended graduation every year there. She also lived down the block from the school for many years.” DiMango, who graduated from P.S. 204 in 1938, returned decades later and served as Parent-Teacher Association president from 1963 to 1965. The auditorium at P.S. 204 was officially named in her honor during a ceremony on June 1. The event marked one of DiMango’s last public appearances. The first step in the street naming process is presenting the proposal to Community Board 11, which would have to vote to approve the measure before it is sent to the City Council for consideration. William Guarinello, chairperson of Community Board 11, said he’s all for it. “We would support it. It’s a no-brainer. It would be a very easy vote. Mafalda certainly fits the criteria of someone who would have a street named after them. She contributed a lot to the community,” he told this newspaper. DiMango was a charter member of Community Board 11, having been appointed back in the 1970s when the City Charter created the boards. The city’s community boards, which are comprised of 50 volunteers appointed by borough presidents to serve the best interests of their neighborhoods, are different from old community school boards, which consisted of elected members responsible for overseeing local schools. Scissura said Councilmember Justin Brannan, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and portions of Bensonhurst, and who represents the area around P.S. 204, has expressed to him his support for the street naming. As the local councilmember, Brannan would be the main sponsor of legislation to have the city officially name the street corner after DiMango.

Landmark Surrogate’s Court Decision Could End the Scourge of Predatory Marriages BY ROB ABRUZZESE

F

ROB@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

ollowing 11 years of litigation and a 37-day bench trial, acting Surrogate Judge John G. Ingram issued a decision that is likely to avoid a potential trend of predatory marriages in New York state. Members of the trusts and estates bar in NYS had been eagerly awaiting the outcome of case between Hua Wang, also known as Judy Wang, and the family of Irving Berk. It was the first trial to apply the new tests created by New York’s Appellate Division, and the decision is seen as a sign of change in the court’s attitude toward what is considered an increasing problem of elder exploitation. “This might be a warning to people in the future that the courts are aware of this topic and are sensitive to it,” said Dominic Famulari, president of the Catholic Lawyers Guild, who regularly practices in the Surrogate’s Court. “From reading the decision, it appears that Judge Ingram was able to parse through all of the evidence and testimony and see the real truth here.” The fight over Berk’s multimilliondollar estate started when Wang was hired as his live-in caretaker in 1997 when Berk was 91 years old. From that time until his death at age 100, she was in charge of his care 24/7 while he became mentally incapacitated, according to court documents. In June 2005, when Berk was 99 years old, Wang and Berk were married in a civil ceremony that was witnessed only by a hired Mandarin translator. Nobody in the Berk family was told about the marriage until after his death, when Wang told Berk’s sons on the way to the funeral home. Despite that fact that she was not included in the will, she insisted that she was owed a third of the estate as his wife as NYS law stipulates.

After two appeals, Hon. John Ingram, who is serving as an acting Surrogate’s Court justice, ruled in favor of the Berk family against Hua Wang, a caretaker who tricked a 99-year-old family patriarch into marrying her. Eagle file photo by Rob Abruzzese To make matters worse, the sons soon found out that shortly before his death, Wang had transferred Berk’s lucrative trade school into her name. “In the initial ruling in 2008, Surrogate’s Court Judge Diana Johnson issued a ruling, there was no trial, that even though this might be unfair, and even acknowledged that it could invite a bunch of deathbed marriages, that she couldn’t do anything about it because of the law that was on the books at the time,” said Jessica M. Baquet, a partner at Jaspan Schlesinger LLP., who represented the Berk family in the case. The family appealed the initial ruling and, in a landmark decision, the Appellate Court ruled that for the first

time a surviving spouse could be disqualified from inheriting if a certain test was met. The case was sent back to Kings County Surrogate’s Court, but not before it ended up in the Appellate Division again for more clarity on the issues. Eventually it found its way in

front of Surrogate Ingram. “Surrogate Johnson seemingly excluded undue influence and we thought that was an incorrect reading of the Appellate Division’s ruling,” said John G. Farinacci, a partner of Ruskin Moscou Faltischek P.C., who also worked on behalf of the Berk family. “We immediately moved the Appellate Division for a stay of the trial because it would be harmful for our clients to try the case under those circumstances. Not only did the appellate court halt the trial, it fast tracked the appeal and found that [we were] correct and that the burden of proof was only on us by a preponderance of the evidence.” After a 37-day trial in front of Justice Ingram, where more than 30 witnesses were called to testify, the judge ruled in favor of Berk’s family and excluded Wang from any inheritance. The facts that the judge needed to determine were whether or not Wang knew that Berk was mentally incapacitated, whether she took unfair advantage of him by marrying him for the purpose of obtaining benefits, and whether she exercised undue influence. This standard will now apply to similar cases in the state. “Elderly exploitation is nothing new,” said Farinacci. “It’s probably increased in serverity as people live longer and are sometimes kept alive by artificial means, sometimes too long. It can be a great opportunity to exploit somebody. This case closes a loophole where there was an inconsistency in our law.”

This season’s New York Penn League selections from the Brooklyn Cyclones for the 2018 All Star Game in State College, Pennsylvania went to starting pitcher Jaison Vilera, second baseman Carlos Cortes, outfielder Ross Adolph, relief pitcher Yeudy Colon, outfielder Wagner LaGrange and relief pitcher Billy Oxford.

Penn League Sends six Cyclones to All Star Game BY JIM DOLAN

B

aseball clubhouses are fertile ground for practical jokes and Brooklyn’s is no exception. Many times, good news comes as a surprise, but when players are summoned to the manager’s office, it’s usually not for good news. Such was the apparent case for this season’s six 2018 Cyclone All Stars when they assembled in Manager Edgardo Alfonzo’s office to learn that they had to pay fines for alleged team infractions. After pleading their innocence, the players were finally congratulated when they were shown their names on the list of New York Penn League All Stars. This season’s Cyclones All Star cast includes one of the league’s top starting pitchers, Jaison Vilera (5-2) who currently leads the league with 63 strikeouts along with a league-leading 1.43 ERA. From the bullpen the Cyclones are also sending Yeudy Colon with a 1.25 ERA; he pitched 14 consecutive scoreless innings to begin the season. In addition to Colon, bullpen teammate Billy Oxford has earned a 5-1 record along with a 1.80 ERA. For the position players, one of the Cyclones’ hottest hitters, outfielder

Wagner Lagrange (.286) joins the Mets’ third round draft pick Carlos Cortes (.276) at second base along with the Mets’ 12th round pick outfielder Ross Adolph (.268). Providing some insight into his recent selection as an All Star, Oxford, a second year Mets minor league pitcher, shared a critical detail of this season’s success. Giving credit to Royce Ring, Oxford stated that the Cyclones’ pitching coach has been an invaluable mentor to him saying, “He’s been a real savior for me.” Noting how Ring has corrected his delivery from a twisting and sweeping motion to a more compact straight delivery, Oxford stated that the adjustment has completely improved his game. As far as the team is concerned, last week the second place Cyclones returned to MCU Park to start a Latin Festival series with the Connecticut Tigers after being swept three games by the McNamara Division-leading Hudson Valley Renegades. Donning their promotional Latin uniforms as the “Jefes” (Spanish for bosses) for a three-game home stand, the Cyclones simply took on a new persona with timely hitting and three outstanding pitching performances to sweep the Tigers.

First, Briam Campusano finally earned a win, giving up two runs on four hits with seven strikeouts and going six innings for a 13-6 victory. Next, Christian James (3-1) captured his third win of the season. going seven innings while giving no runs on three hits with five strikeouts. The Texas native’s outing allowed the Cyclones to beat the Tigers 2-0 and placed James in fourth place (2.05) among the league’s ERA leaders. James’s buddy Kyle Wilson closed

out the sweep of the Tigers by turning in one of the premier performances of the season, throwing five scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts. After Wilson left the game in the fifth, the Cyclones kept the fans on the edge of seats with a no-hitter going into the seventh inning, before the Tigers finally got their first hit in the eventual 9-2 Cyclones win. At the conclusion of Week 9, the second-place Cyclones are 29-25, three and a half games behind the 32-21 firstplace Hudson Valley Renegades.

Pro Bono Help for Domestic Violence Victims? Treyger Bill Raises Questions BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

City Council bill that would mandate free legal representation for domestic violence victims who go to court to get a divorce from an abusive spouse is winning praise from victims’ advocates but others are raising concerns over what it would cost the city. On Aug. 8, Councilmember Mark Treyger introduced a bill that would provide free legal assistance to domestic violence victims who want a divorce. Treyger said divorce proceedings take place in New York State Supreme Court and that attorney’s fees can add up to thousands of dollars. “There are countless victims of domestic violence who face great difficulty shouldering the financial burden throughout what is often a lengthy divorce process. This legislation will empower victims and help them move on with their lives,”

Treyger, a Democrat who represents Coney Island, Gravesend and portions of Bensonhurst said in a statement. Brooklyn Conservative Party Chairperson Gerard Kassar expressed concern that the proposed legislation had not been fully vetted. “It’s noble, what he’s looking to do. I would support it. But there are already numerous non-profit organizations that receive government funding to provide just such a service,” Kassar told this newspaper on Aug. 13. Kassar also said he is concerned about the possible duplication of services and the inherent costs involved. “Maybe the programs that already exist need to be strengthened and given more financial support. Maybe we should take a look at that. I’m not sure we need to create a new government program,” he said. But Kassar quickly added that he thought Treyger’s idea is a good one. “One of the main purposes of government is to protect people and that’s

what this is trying to do,” Kassar said. There is currently a system in place under which financially-strapped victims can obtain divorces at little or no cost. Section 35 of the Judiciary Law offers litigants who qualify based on income the right to file for divorce in Supreme Court without having to pay. Meanwhile, Treyger’s bill is winning praise from advocates for domestic violence victims. Ariel Zwang, CEO of the organization Safe Horizon, said that Treyger deserved credit for “offering pathways to safety for victims of domestic violence who might otherwise be trapped in abusive marriages due to a lack of resources.” Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization for Women – New York, said the group receives numerous phone calls from women seeking help to obtain a divorce. “Having a resource like this where a woman can get expert advice and a lawyer to ensure the court process

makes headway is one of the most beneficial things we could do for battered women,” Ossorio said in a statement Treyger’s bill would require the Office of the Civil Justice Coordinator to create programs that would provide free, full legal services for victims of domestic violence who could otherwise not afford the cost of divorce proceedings. The bill will cover both uncontested and contested divorces, according to Treyger, who said severing marital ties to an abuser can be an important step for victims because it is a way for them to protect their financial assets and their privacy. Treyger has previously sought other ways to help domestic violence victims. Earlier this year, the councilmember introduced a bill that would require the Department of Citywide Administrative Services to provide free diapers at domestic violence shelters and childcare centers.
