Cobble Hill Residents Fume Over Uncollected Compost Rotting in Heat
Sanitation Dept. Fails to Alert Residents of Pickup Changes By Scott Enman
Brooklyn Heights Press
Cobble Hill residents are talking trash. On a sultry day last week, Cobble Hill residents were heated to find their compost sitting on the curb, uncollected after sanitation workers left. The garbage men removed trash bags, but left the brown compost bins filled with dinner scraps and other organic waste. By 3 p.m., a stench began to emit from the containers as residents — unaware of any changes to their pickup schedule — left their bins out hoping the workers would return to remove the compost. In addition to the pungent smell, insects began to accumulate inside the bins, according to one peeved resident on Warren Street, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “New York’s Strongest,” as they are known, will apparently have a little less heavy lifting to do, according to one sanitation worker, who said the department decided to change its routine by picking up compost only on Fridays, rather than twice a week on Tuesdays also. “I was very surprised, if not shocked, to find out from one of the sanitation workers that the sanitation department was no longer picking up compost twice a week on garbage days,” the resident said. “I asked if he knew why, and he informed me that the department was losing money.” “I think the biggest problem is why was no one
informed that this change had taken place?” she added. “It’s now Thursday, and I’ve gotten no notification. Meanwhile, on hot humid days, everybody’s compost on my street is sitting out there.” On the DSNY Info app late last week, it still listed Tuesday as an “Organics” collection day and listed Tuesday, Aug. 7, as a pickup day. The garbage trucks dispatched last Tuesday were also not equipped to handle compost. Those that are have two separate sections in the back, while the ones earlier that week had only one general area for household trash. The sanitation worker, who did not provide his name, said the department initially started the compost program for economical reasons rather than ecological ones. “He said the idea behind the program to begin with was not as much to be environmentally friendly, but to make money,” the resident said. “There were not enough people composting as they originally planned for, so the department was losing money.” Even when sanitation workers do pick up compost, however, residents have complained about sanitation workers aimlessly throwing their compost into the garbage section. Earlier this year, residents in the neighborhood confronted a sanitation worker, who apologized and scooped their compost out of the garbage and into the natural waste side. “When they launched the program, we got so many
The Department of Sanitation’s app “DSNY Info” still listed Tuesdays as an organic recycling pickup day late last week and had Tuesday, Aug. 7 as the next collection day. mailings informing us of what was happening,” the resident said. “But it’s ridiculous that the Sanitation Department can’t let us know when they’re stopping something so the citizens can be informed and take steps not to have rotting compost sitting out in 90-degree humid weather.” DSNY published a press release announcing the change on its website on July 23, but failed to alert each household. The service change started last Monday and will affect residents in Community Board 6, which includes Cobble Hill, Red Hook, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus and Park Slope. “From the start of the program, we have tested different service frequencies, along with different types of trucks, etc. to determine what provides the most efficient and effective service for all,” Dina Montes, press secretary of the Department of Sanitation, told the Brooklyn Heights Press. “Additionally, our research showed that most residents were participating in the organics collection program once per week, generally on their recycling collection day. ... Regarding mailers not received by residents and DSNY app issues: The Department is looking into the matter.”

Legal Fight Begins Over Replacement of Famous Sign On Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Former Heights Headquarters By Lore Croghan
Brooklyn Heights Press
The famous Watchtower sign was illegal for its entire half-century existence. The Squibb sign that originally stood in its place was illegal, too. That’s the city Buildings Department’s stunning assertion — and its rationale for why it denied the owner of the former Jehovah’s Witnesses’ headquarters in Brooklyn Heights permission to replace the Watchtower sign atop 30 Columbia Heights. The property’s owner, Columbia Heights Associates, is appealing the city agency’s decision. Lawyers for the landlord and the Buildings Department duked it out at a city Board of Standards and Appeals hearing on Tuesday at Spector Hall in Lower Manhattan. As a consequence of this legal battle, the void in Brooklyn’s shoreline scenery that was created by the Watchtower sign’s removal will remain for at least three more months. The next Board of Standards and Appeals hearing concerning this issue won’t take place until Oct. 23.
‘Iconic Presence on the Brooklyn Skyline’
The red electric Watchtower sign had been “an iconic presence on the Brooklyn skyline,” attorney David Karnovsky of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP said during his testimony on behalf of Columbia Heights Associates. Workers removed the iconic Watchtower sign’s 15foot-tall letters in December and left standing a flashing electric sign that shows the time and temperature. Continued on page 4

Watchtower Sign Was Illegal, Buildings Dept. Says This is a rendering of a possible replacement for the Watchtower sign, found on a fence outside 25-30 Columbia Heights.
Heights Press file photo by Lore Croghan
Continued from page 3 The Watchtower sign had been visible from Brooklyn Bridge Park, the Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan. The Jehovah’s Witnesses installed it in 1970, the year after buying 25-30 Columbia Heights from E.R. Squibb & Sons.
The Watchtower sign replaced a Squibb sign the pharmaceutical company had installed in 1961.
Did Squibb Get a Permit to Install Its Sign?
The key argument by Timothy McKernan, the Buildings Department’s assistant general counsel, is
that there’s no evidence Squibb obtained a permit to install its rooftop sign. To counter that argument, Karnovsky testified that the agency acknowledges the availability of old Buildings Department records is limited. Nevertheless, his team managed to find a 1961 Buildings Department ledger with a notation about an application to put a roof sign on top of 30 Columbia Heights. The estimated cost of erecting the sign was $20,000. A Buildings Department employee’s signature of approval appears in the ledger notation. Karnovsky’s team also found other documentation suggesting Squibb got a permit for sign construction. Concerning the current situation with the iconic Watchtower sign, McKernan said in his testimony that putting new sign letters on framework that was left atop 30 Columbia Heights would constitute a structural alteration — and that’s not permissible, he asserted. Karnovsky countered that an engineer’s study determined the framework is “a complete and viable structure” and the sign letters are not structural elements.
Jehovah’s Witnesses Moved Upstate After Headquarters Sale

Columbia Heights Associates bought the five-building Watchtower headquarters complex for $340 million in 2016. The Jehovah’s Witnesses sold 25-30 Columbia Heights because they relocated their world headquarters to upstate Warwick, New York. Columbia Heights Associates is redeveloping the property, which is across the street from Brooklyn Bridge Park, into an office and retail complex called Panorama. Columbia Heights Associates is a joint venture made up of CIM Group and LIVWRK Holdings. Kushner Cos. initially was part of the joint venture, but sold its stake in the property to CIM Group this year. Jared Kushner headed Kushner Cos. until he stepped aside to serve as senior adviser to his father-in-law, President Donald Trump.

Saturday Park Slope Summer Stroll Continues By John Alexander INBrooklyn
It was a very nice turnout as crowds gathered to walk along Fifth from 12th to 18th streets and enjoy a variety of activities along the way. While last week’s event ended early due to the weather, this week’s stroll, sponsored by the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District, was packed from beginning to end. Activities included bouncy rides for children at 12th and 13th streets. Crunch Gym demonstrated kickboxing for kids and there was yoga and stick aerobics for adults along streets lined with artificial turf. Also, the legendary Bubble Guy formed giant bubbles as he entertained crowds of kids. Highlights along the stroll route were the South Brooklyn Shakespeare Company’s performance of Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” and a display of vintage cars along Fifth Avenue. There was outdoor seating at select restaurants and live music. The Paprika Marching Band performed, clowns entertained kids by spinning plates, and checkers, chess and Jenga tables were set up. And in a show of community spirit, cops from the 78th Precinct played bean toss with the strollers. There were prizes for those who spun the wheel at the YMCA table and, all in all, it was a memorable stroll for everyone who attended. Upcoming events include the North Slope Stroll 1 on Aug. 11 from 5-9 p.m. with a salsa dance party and silent disco and the North Slope Stroll 2 on Aug. 18 from 5-8 p.m. featuring A stroller spins for prizes at the YMCA the Artichoke Pizza eating contest. table.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope welcoming Premier 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.

B’klyn DA: Low-Level Marijuana Prosecutions 91 Percent FACESDown BEHIND By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn
The mayor and the police commissioner announced in June that the city will have a new policy when it comes to marijuana arrests, but Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez has attempted to lead the way on the issue. 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 not arrested have contributed to a sense among many in our communities that the system is unfair,” Gonzalez said. “This in turn contributes to a lack of trust in law enforcement, which makes us all less safe. “That is why, earlier this year, we expanded our existing non-prosecution policy to include smoking cases,” he continued. “That pilot policy proved to be effective in dramatically reducing the number of low-level marijuana cases processed in court, freeing resources and strengthening trust in the justice system. I intend to maintain thisTurkish approach and to• 1 (800) 874-8875 Airlines only prosecute the most egregious Turkish Airlines makes travel dreams come true.

Taken together, the number of cases that were accepted for prosecution this year declined from 349 in January to 29 in June — a drop of 91.6 percent.

Advertorial D.A.N.N.Y. Inc. to host Dare To Care Day for anti-bullying Maureen Fitzpatrick, mother of 13-year-Danny who committed suicide due to excessive bullying on August 11, 2016, has founded D.A.N.N.Y Inc., a non-profit organization to raise awareness to bullying and will be hosting another event in Danny’s name. On Saturday, August 18, D.A.N.N.Y. INC. will host Dare To Care Day, a charity softball/carnival event at Mid Island Babe Ruth League Ballfield, 1322 Travis Avenue in Staten Island, starting at 11 a.m. “It’s emotional for me because I created this for Danny to honor his life and the idea behind this foundation is to hopefully help educate people about bullying and suicide prevention, what bullying can do, and show people that bullying does affect a person to the point that they will be suicidal like it did to my son, and that it does happen more often than we think in this country,” said Fitzpatrick. “It’s more about raising awareness and promoting kindness. We all have to treat each other well, be respectful, take accountability, understand and be more empathetic to one another.” That idea, Fitzpatrick said, and the founding of D.A.N.N.Y Inc. is based on the “true essence of who Danny was” – a kind soul and an even brighter light.

HOROSCOPES August 9 - August 15, 2018 ♋ CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, it is very easy to get wrapped up in the problems of others. But sometimes you have to let others work things out on their own. Offer advice if it is sought. ♌ LEO Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, behind the big lionХs roar beats the heart of a pussy cat. Your sensitive side is bound to come through this week, when you may provide comfort to a person in need. ♍ VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22 What you show to the public may not be the true Virgo you keep close to yourself. Let a few intimate details sneak out, and you may be surprised at the reactions. ♎ LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23 This is a prime time to nurture business relationships that could push your employment career into a new direction, Libra. There are many possibilities at your disposal. ♏ SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22 It can be difficult for your detailed-oriented self to draw the line at what to include in a task and what to leave out. You strive for perfection in all you do, Scorpio. ♐ SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21 You are wondering if you should play it safe or dance closer to the edge this week, Sagittarius. It may be because you are feeling trapped by routine. Change can be good. ♑ CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you want to be there for all the people who may need your assistance. But avoid stretching yourself too thin so you can approach each situation energetically. ♒ AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18 Choose your battles, Aquarius. There are not enough hours in the day to be an activist for every cause. Only select the ones that you truly feel strongly about. ♓ PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20 Try not to record every moment on social media, Pisces. ItХs good to leave an aura of mystery from time to time and enjoy the moments. ♈ ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20 It can be challenging to silence your suspicious mind, Aries. Not everyone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Avoid gossip whenever possible, and youХll be fine. ♉ TAURUS Apr 21/May 21 Wear your heart on your sleeve, Taurus. Doing so may endear you to others. It may seem like youХre putting all your cards on the table, but youХre showing youХre genuine. ♊ GEMINI May 22/Jun 21 Toning things down is not necessarily your style, Gemini. But this week you may want to keep a few details to yourself. Maintain a low profile for the next few days.

Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten is the Place to Go This Summer BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
hen the Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten first opened, there was great anticipation that it would be a unique new addition to the borough’s summer landscape. After all, it was the brainchild of the folks behind the Grand Prospect Hall, one of the finest event venues in Brooklyn.
Well, it did not disappoint! The Bavarian Biergarten caught on quickly and has become a staple in the neighborhood. It’s open rain or shine on weekends and there’s a large selection of imported beers to help wash down the delicious traditional German and American cuisine. And that’s not all, the venue also serves

Come See Tiny Streets Near Bay Ridge’s 69th Street Pier By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Everybody in Bay Ridge loves the 69th Street Pier, with its excellent views of Lower Manhattan skyscrapers and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Now that the NYC Ferry stops at the pier, it's especially popular. When you visit the American Veterans Memorial Pier, as it's officially called, there's an interesting walk to take afterwards. Head up 69th Street — or Bay Ridge Avenue, which is what the street signs say. You'll find several singleblock streets, all picturesque and peaceful. Start at Madeline Court, the street that's furthest from the pier. This cul-de-sac is on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue. To find Madeline Court's entrance, walk up the avenue and around the corner to 68th Street. Madeline Court is lined with red-brick Tudor-style rowhouses built in the 1940s. They are decorated with timber and have slate roofs. To give you an idea of what the homes are worth, last year 6821 Madeline Court sold for $890,000, city Finance Department records show.
Here’s a close-up look at Madeline Court rowhouses near the corner of 68th Street.
Come See Cul-de-Sacs by the Bay Ridge Shoreline By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan
In about 10 seconds you'll see two brick houses with a short staircase between them. The stairs lead to a landscaped central garden with walkways on either side. This pedestrianonly cul-de-sac is called Colonial Gardens. It's secluded and very nifty. The house at 10 Colonial Gardens is for sale at an asking price of $1.165 million, a posting by listing agent Anthony Mussolino of Ben Bay Realty says. It's got three bedrooms and a garage. The last time this house changed hands, which was 2011, it sold for $650,000, Finance Department records indicate. On one side of the entrance to Colonial Gardens, a standalone house whose address is 8915 Narrows Ave. is under renovation by new owners. They bought the house for $1.43 million in December, Finance Department records show. • If you step over to Shore Road — which runs into Narrows Avenue right beside Colonial Gardens — and walk until you cross 86th Street, you will find Shore Road Lane. It's a paved cul-de-sac that runs beside Fort Hamilton High School. There's a handful of big, beautiful suburban houses on the lane.
You can live by the shoreline AND have a Tudor house with cobblestones outside your front door. That's a dreamy combo, as far as we're concerned. We're talking about Shore Court, a Bay Ridge cul-de-sac off 89th Street. It's oh-so-close to Shore Road, with its views of New York Harbor. And Shore Court is one of the only streets in the neighborhood that is paved with Belgian blocks, as cobblestones are officially called. The semi-detached houses on this dandy dead-end street are half-stucco, half-brick, with timber decorations and steep roofs. This time of year, roses are growing in many of the front gardens. To give you an idea of what the houses are worth, 8902 Shore Court sold for $1.11 million in October, city Finance Department records show. The house has a large side yard because it's on a corner lot. As an indication of how prices have appreciated over the years, 8924 Shore Court sold for $869,000 in 2009, Finance Department records show. Two other mini-streets nearby also hug the shoreline: * When you leave Shore Court, walk down 89th Street to Narrows Avenue and turn south. ABOVE: Welcome to Shore Court, one of Bay Ridge's most beautiful cul-de-sacs.
A fine summer sky brightens this view of the terrific Tudors on Bay Cliff Terrace.
Cobblestones on Bay Ridge Place
After you see Madeline Court, walk back to 69th Street — aka Bay Ridge Avenue — to find the entrance to Bay Ridge Place. It, too, is located between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue. There are cobblestones on Bay Ridge Place — and creamy-hued, barrel-shaped rowhouses that are a century old. It's a full-block street, not a dead-end, that runs from 69th Street to Ovington Avenue. You should also see three other tiny streets near the 69th Street Pier: • Bay Cliff Terrace is a dead-end street with its sole entrance on 68th Street on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Colonial Road. It is lined with terrific brick Tudor rowhouses, some with colorful decorative accents. • On the block between Colonial Road and Narrows Avenue, there's a single-block street called Bliss Terrace. It runs between 68th Street — which serves as a border of Owl's Head Park at this point — and 69th Street. The park was originally industrialist Eliphalet W. Bliss's estate. He bequeathed the property to the city. Bliss Terrace is named after him. Many of the street's handsome brick rowhouses have lovely front gardens. To give you an idea of what the homes are worth, 6825 Bliss Terrace sold for $1.1 million in February 2017, Finance Department records indicate. And 6806 Bliss Terrace sold for $729,000 in a November 2015 estate sale, Finance Department records show. • Owls Head Court is located between Narrows Avenue and Shore Road, just a block away from the entrance to the 69th Street Pier. That's not a typo. The city Buildings Department and Finance Department do not use an apostrophe in the word “Owls” when referring to this street. Owls Head Court, which is lined with small, low-rise brick apartment buildings, runs between the 68th Street border of Owl's Head Park and 69th Street.

The handsome house in the foreground of this photo is 6655 Sedgwick Place.
The nifty old-fashioned house in the foreground is 6660 Sedgwick Place. By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Up at the northern edge of Bay Ridge, two single-block streets that stand side by side bear the names of distinguished area residents of the 19th century. They are Bergen Place and Sedgwick Place, which both run between 67th Street and Wakeman Place on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Colonial Road.
Come See Victorian Houses on Bergen Place and Sedgwick Place
Bergen Place is named after Teunis Bergen, according to the helpful book “Brooklyn by Name” by Leonard Benardo and Jennifer Weiss. Bergen, who lived from 1806 to 1881, was a farmer and surveyor who served one term in the United States Congress from 1865 to 1867. Before that, his varied political and civic responsibilities had included the position of supervisor of the town of New Utrecht, of which Bay Ridge was a part. Back in those days, Bay Ridge was called Yellow Hook — a name that lost its appeal because of yellow fever epidemics. While Bergen was New Utrecht's town supervisor, he presided over an 1853 meeting where a resolution to change Yellow Hook's name to Bay Ridge was passed, Ted General notes in a comment posted on the website Hey Ridge. A Hey Ridge story about Bergen says he co-founded the Long Island Historical Society, which today is known as the Brooklyn Historical Society. Bergen is buried in Green-Wood Cemetery.
Million-Dollar Homes on a Peaceful Street
Long may it wave — at 6663 Sedgwick Place.
Bergen Place is charming and peaceful, with a mix of homes constructed during different eras. Our favorite property on the street is a gigantic, fenced-in Victorian mansion on the corner of Wakeman Place that's divided down the middle into two homes. Window bays on each home have pointy roofs that look like witches' hats. The home that's closer to Wakeman Place is 6635 Bergen Place. The home that's further away is 6637 Bergen Place. Another picturesque, old-fashioned house stands on a hill and has a graceful lawn with terrific trees. Its address is 6640 Bergen Place. To give you an idea of what properties on this street are worth, city Finance Department records indicate that 6641 Bergen Place sold for $1.365 million in April.
A Shout-Out to Theodore Sedgwick
This eye-pleasing Victorian property is divided into two homes, whose addresses are 6635 Bergen Place at left and 6637 Bergen INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan Place at right.
Sedgwick Place is named after a family of area landowners, among them Theodore Sedgwick, who was a co-founder of Bay Ridge's Christ Church in the 1850s, the book “Brooklyn by Name” says. We're especially charmed by two big, eye-catching old homes that stand side by side on sloping lawns in the middle of the block. One of them is mustard-yellow 6655 Sedgwick Place, which has a wrap-around porch. A historic note: A deed we found on the Finance Department's website describes this property as having belonged to the estate of Theodore Sedgwick and having been sold in 1887 so the proceeds could be distributed to his heirs. The other house stands next door at 6663 Sedgwick Place. It's a classic Victorian, and has a turret with a witches' hat roof. A deed in the Finance Department's online records also identifies this property as having been included in Sedgwick's 1887 estate sale.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN From the Brooklyn Eagle Of August 16, 1909
Thunderstorm Bolsters Mood of Praising God Through Song
New Assumption Church Building Is Dedicated

The Brooklyn Eagle published a section on the dedication of the new Church of the Assumption on Cranberry St. The Roman Catholic parish had been founded in 1842. The Brooklyn Eagle reported the dedication of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, which took place on the parish’s patronal feast day of Aug. 15. The Assumption commemorates a Mystery of the Catholic Church (and of the Rosary) that the body of the Virgin Mary—mother of Jesus—was deemed too holy to decay and was carried into heaven. Brooklyn Diocesan Bishop Charles Edward McDonnell, who had laid the foundation of the church the previous December, presided at the dedication High Mass, with the Rev. J.F. Mealia as celebrant. “The dedicatory sermon was delivered by the Rev. William T. McGuirl, who paid a high tribute to the successful efforts of the pastor of the church, the Rev. Dr. William J. Donaldson. The interior decorations are light, with the exception of the woodwork, which is of dark oak. The walls are decorated in light colors, with gold bands. The sanctuary rail is of white and gold, and the large altar is of white marble. The organ is already in place in the loft at the entrance of the edifice. All of the windows are of stained glass and were made in Germany from special designs. The exterior of the church is of light pressed brick, terra cotta trimmings and of Italian Renaissance style. There are towers at either side of the entrance rising to a height of 124 feet. The church has a frontage of 66 feet and is 446 feet in depth. The seating capacity is one thousand. The basement, formerly used for worship, will now be utilized as a parish hall. Erected in connection with the church is a parish house for the accommodation of the clergy, and a parochial school will be ready soon. After the dedication exercises, clergymen and others taking active part in the ceremonies were the guests of the pastor of the church at dinner in the Hotel St. George. Solemn vespers were sung in the evening at half-past seven o’clock. The Rev. Edward McCue, rector at St. Joseph’s Church, Kensington, NY, officiated.”

Lord of all Creation — 2. Thor, the Norse god of thunder and lightning — 1. Over the millennia, a wealth of songs and melodies have been created, in all kinds of situations, to praise God. On Tuesday night, August 7, a group of robust hymn-lovers from several Brooklyn congregations could be heard singing David N. Johnson’s danceable “Earth and All Stars,” while an electrical storm raged outdoors. The evening’s presenter, the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, rector of Grace Church, even led the group in singing the beloved Christmas carol, “O Come All Ye Faithful”—perhaps as a way to cool down during the latest heat wave. The August Tuesday Hymn Sing series, which became a tradition in 2004, explores the wide treasury of hymnody from the Episcopal/Anglican tradition
as well as spirituals and new works. Next week’s presenter (Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 7 p.m.) is Pam McAllister, a church organist since age 15, music director of the Park Slope United Methodist Church, and a frequent participant in the popular Summer Sings at Grace Church Brooklyn Heights. McAllister currently blogs at “Ask Her About Hymn(s)” http://askherabouthymn. com. McAllister is a member of the Hymn Society of the United States and Canada and the American Guild of Organists-Brooklyn Chapter. She is also the author of nine published books (subjects include Shakespeare, Mark Twain, feminism, nonviolence and more). She has also written columns about sacred congregational song for two magazines: The Progressive Christian and The Hymn.

Several FPWA Scholarship Winners Hail From Brooklyn
Several of the 14 winners of this year’s FPWA scholarships are from Brooklyn or attend colleges in the borough.
Photo courtesy of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies
The Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies (FPWA) presented 14 college students with a $2,000 scholarship at its 2018 College Scholarship awards breakfast held recently in Lower Manhattan. Several of this year’s recipients are Brooklynites—drawn from a pool of New York residents—who are in their junior and senior year of college, and were recommended for the scholarship by FPWA’s network of community-based member agencies. Students were selected for their individual abilities to excel despite challenging circumstances and have demonstrated a strong commitment to furthering their education. The Brooklyn winners include Megan Soto, Sarah Slater, Tiara Simons, Jermaine Meadows, Jermani Faulk and Noeimie Desir. Soto, a Brooklyn College senior, said, “My dream job in life is to become a speech pathologist down the line. Right now, I am a communications major and I want to be successful, and help
children and people who are struggling.” Soto was recommended for the scholarship by Goddard Riverside Community Center. Faulk, a senior at Binghamton University, said, “My education is the most important thing to me in my life right now...this scholarship will allow a kid out of East New York, who never knew he would be in college in the first place, to be the first in his family to obtain a bachelor’s degree.” A political science major, Faulk and Meadows, another first-generation college student and physical education major, were recommended for the scholarship by Cypress Hills LDC. The FPWA college scholarships are funded by the New York Times Neediest Cases. FPWA is an anti-poverty policy and advocacy organization committed to economic opportunity and upward mobility. It has had a prominent New York presence for nearly 100 years.

Mayor de Blasio Signs Bill Affecting Thousands of NYC Airbnb Rentals 22,000 Airbnb Units Are Listed in Brooklyn By Mary Frost
Brooklyn Heights Press
From Montague Street to Columbia Heights, the Airbnb apartment-share website lists dozens of places to stay in Brooklyn Heights, and at prices cheaper than the nearby chain hotels. A traveler can book an entire four-bedroom apartment that sleeps 10 people for $145 a night, or a “trendy two-bedroom” for $100. Visitors can rent a “huge serene room” that sleeps four for $100 a night, or an entire garden apartment in a Brownstone for $185. During a price check on Monday, a room at the two closest traditional hotels, by comparison, cost $250 and $300 per night. Airbnb rentals are extremely popular across Brooklyn. There are 22,000 Airbnb listings in the borough, according to the company. These options may change in six months, however, as on Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed Intro No. 981 — a bill requiring Airbnb and other online rental platforms to disclose the names and addresses of their hosts, or face large fines. The purpose of the bill, passed unanimously by the City Council on July 18, is to ferret out landlords and tenants who illegally rent out their apartments to
tourists. Numerous housing and community advocacy organizations — including New York Communities for Change and the Metropolitan Council on Housing — had pressed for its passage, saying companies like Airbnb have sucked affordable housing off the market, exacerbating the city’s housing crisis. “We’re going to go after the city’s most egregious operators,” said Manhattan Councilmember Carlina Rivera at the bill’s signing. “The bill will address one of the biggest crises in our city — affordable housing.” Airbnb, however, says the city is in cahoots with the hotel industry. “We are disappointed Mayor de Blasio chose to sign this hotel industry-backed bill instead of defending the needs of middle-class New Yorkers who rely on sharing their home to get by,” Josh Meltzer, head of Northeast Policy for Airbnb said in a statement on Monday. “While the mayor himself has said regular New Yorkers should not be the target of enforcement, many responsible homeowners are currently facing aggressive, unchecked policing, and are fearful of what will happen under this new legislation,” Meltzer said. He added that the company hopes to work with the mayor to create “common-sense regulations that finally distinguish these families from the few bad actors who
should feel the full force of the law.” New York state’s short-term rental rules prohibit people in a building with three or more units from renting out apartments for less than 30 days when the host is not present. Many of the Brooklyn apartments listed on Airbnb note that the landlord or tenant is not on site but is “easily contacted.” Up until now, however, enforcement of the law has been spotty, with most of the city’s efforts mainly going toward big violators — such as a Manhattan landlord who used Airbnb to illegally convert 26 rent-stabilized apartments into short-term rentals. With the new rule, even hosts in a building with only two apartments — such as a Brooklyn Heights brownstone — will be required to register with the city.
New York state’s Multiple Dwelling Law prohibits the rental of unoccupied housing units in multi-unit (three or more) buildings in New York City for less than 30 days. Short-term rentals in one- and two-family homes are not prohibited under state law, nor is renting a room in an occupied apartment. While one- or two-family homes have been exempted under state law, the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement considers rentals in one- or two-family homes to be illegal if the owner is not present in the unit, creating uncertainty over what, exactly, is legal.

Mayor de Blasio Signs Bill Affecting Thousands of NYC Airbnb Rentals
Continued from page 7 Given the gray areas in the law and potentially “crippling fines,” hosts are nervous, Airbnb spokesperson Liz DeBold Fusco told the Brooklyn Heights Press on Monday.

An organization called Share Better, which receives funding from the Hotel Association of New York City and the New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council, says it plans to spend more than $1 million this year to conduct Airbnb stings, according to the Wall Street Journal. When it finds an illegal rental, it turns the information over to the Mayor’s Office of Special Enforcement. De Blasio, interviewed by Errol Louis on “Live Inside City Hall,” said his Office of Special Enforcement has been a game changer “because they’ve been aggressive and they’ve sent a message that illegality will not be tolerated and we’re going to deepen those efforts.” De Blasio said the city needs the hosts’ data “because we have to protect people. Unfortunately … we’ve seen some unsafe conditions, we’ve seen situations where people who live in the same building don’t even know there are strangers in their building, there is a host of issues that are raised that we really have to come up with proper regulation on, and we can’t do that without data.” Fusco said the Airbnb just wants to see more clarity in the rules so hosts will know whether they are operating legally or not — something the new law does not address. “We’re considering our next steps,” she said.
