Neighbors Helping Neighbors: The N. Brooklyn Angels Serve Brooklynites By Angelica Hill

Special to Greenpoint Gazette

Chicken burritos with mild salsa, black beans, sour cream, lettuce and tomatoes, served with an apple, was a recent menu served from of the Angelmobile. Six volunteers served the steady stream of grateful Brooklyn residents lining up for lunch, which they eat in a nearby park under the autumn sun. About 150 people showed up to receive meals, many of whom took the meals home to eat, something others have begun doing as the weather

turned colder. Since Memorial Day, the Angelmobile has served around 1,000 meals a week in Greenpoint and Williamsburg. The North Brooklyn Coalition of Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a nonprofit organization locally known as the North Brooklyn Angels, initiated this mobile food project in June. According to the Brooklyn Community Foundation, one in four Brooklyn residents lives in poverty, and 23.2 percent live below the poverty level, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Volunteer Brenda Owens chats to regulars at the van. The North Brooklyn Angels Angelmobile, inset. of the North Brooklyn Angels, and Rev. John Merz came up with the idea for the program over coffee at McDonald’s while they were chatting about gentrification in the North Brooklyn community. Sheehan is married to a leading expert on gentrification, Dr. Judith DeSena, professor at St John’s University and author of “Gentrification and Inequality in Brooklyn: New Kids on the Block,” so they turned to her for advice on planning the mobile project.

Start-up funds came from the Episcopalian Ministry of Long Island, which provided $169,000 and a commitment for the same amount for a second year; and Elaine and Norm Brodsky, who formerly owned a company called Citistorage. Norm is now a motivational speaker and has a variety of other investments. The Brooklyn Angels, who spent about $320,000 on the specially outfitted truck with various fridges and heaters, three sinks, an office area and service window, are

about to launch a public funding campaign to raise another $200,000 by the end of this year. Ryan Kuonen, executive director of the program, defines food insecurity as simply “not being able to afford healthy food. You can’t tell from someone’s appearance if they’re food insecure.” An estimated 1.4 million New York City residents rely on emergency food programs each year. Kuonen, who is from California, has worked in the

food distribution industry for most of her career for organizations such as Neighbors Allied for Good Growth (NAG) as a tenant organizer and has been working in North Brooklyn since 2008 in various community organizing roles. She estimated that only about 10 percent of those who get meals from the truck are homeless. “In general, food insecurity reaches a lot further than people realize,” she said. continued on p.3

Claudell Lewis, 37, from Bedford-Stuyvesant, has been driving the Angelmobile for two months after hearing about it while learning to drive a school bus. He plans to stay until he retires, or for as long as the donations keep rolling in. He anticipates retiring around 65, but even then, he said he would continue to volunteer. “The days are perfect. The times are good. I get the weekends off. For me, it’s perfect. I love it,” he said. “It feels like I’m making a difference. It’s the favorite job I’ve ever had.” He described, in his deep voice, how the van serves everybody: “You’ll have different people — sometimes you’ll get homeless people, sometimes you’ll get people with a mental problem, sometimes you get regular working people. So you get a mix.” Guyron Menitt, a 53-yearold local, has been a regular at the truck since the program began. He spoke of how “lots of people get embarrassed to

come out and get food,” but believes that people in the community are slowly taking advantage of the Angelmobile. Menitt, who can’t work because of complications of diabetes, is on disability benefits and came to the van after hearing about it from a friend. The lifelong Bushwick resident said he loves the chance to get outside and catch up with others getting food from the van. The daily routine begins at 11:30 a.m., when Lewis drives the 40-foot bright blue truck to collect trays of food from the bustling volunteer kitchen at St. John’s Bread and Life. St John’s Bread and Life prepares and serves about 2,000 meals per day, as well as runs a pantry where it gives out goods to members of the community. The kitchen was filled with the smell of various spices as volunteers danced to “Beat It” by Michael Jackson. Many of the volunteers have special needs, both developmental and physical. The center serves to help them channel their energy into something productive. As

Lewis put it, “Everyone has a purpose here.” St. John’s has its own Mobile Soup Kitchen (MSK) and supplies food to a range of different food supply organizat-ions across Brooklyn on and off whenever their assistance is needed. The partnership between the Angels and St. John’s came about because Sheehan helped found the original St. John’s Soup Kitchen. The van, with the North Brooklyn Angels logo emblazoned on its side, is hard to miss, and people greet it all along the route. The van arrives at Cooper Park Houses on Jackson Street at midday, and volunteers arrive at 12:30 p.m. Regular volunteer James Brodie delivers meals to people in the housing projects who cannot come to the van, primarily elderly residents. Everyone gets a pre-set portion, which the volunteers have been instructed on before they give out the food. Lewis said they sometimes run out, but “to stop that we try to stretch the portions. “The only thing we try to watch is giving out multiple trays to people,” he added.

Volunteer Sanja Wetzel adds sauces to the meals.

The van shuts its doors at 1:45 p.m. and, with Boys II Men on the radio, the team conscientiously cleans the kitchen area and packages the remaining food. Then the volunteers leave to enjoy the rest of the sunny day and Claudell drives the van back to its parking space. Occasionally there is a knock on the door as they clean from people seeking leftovers. If there are any, they give them out. The van is parked and ready for the next day by 3 p.m. On Jan. 2, Sheehan hopes to open the North Brooklyn Angels’ own kitchen, which will allow them to prepare their own food, save on transportation costs, create more volunteer opportunities and enable them to take donations. The donation fliers for the program describe how $20 will feed someone all week, while $80 will feed a family of four, but the group intends to offer more than sustenance. As Neil Sheena put it, “North Brooklyn Angels hopes to build community cohesion among both old and new residents of North Brooklyn by facilitating the volunteer service of local neighbors in an effort to ease

the challenges of those less fortunate in their midst. This less fortunate segment is over-

represented by longtime lowincome and fixed-income renters.”

Landmarks Commission Approves Creative Glass Wall Building-within-Brick in Domino Sugar Facade ‘Epicenter’ of 11-Acre Development Project

By Lore Croghan Greenpoint Gazette

How sweet it is! Tuesday was a red-letter day for Two Trees Management. The developer won the city Landmarks Preservation Commission's approval for a new redesign plan for the Domino Sugar Refinery in Williamsburg. In a vote held at its Lower Manhattan headquarters, the commission approved architecture firm PAU's officeconversion plan for the shoreline Williamsburg actory at 292-314 Kent Ave. There was one “no” vote. The design by architecture firm PAU calls for the construction of a glass-walled building with a barrel-vaulted ceiling inside the historic refinery's brick facade. The roof of the Havemeyers & Elder Filter, Pan & Finishing House will be removed and the inside of its brick walls will be exposed to snow, frost and rain. A 10-to-12-foot gap between the historic brick facade and the new glass building will bring light and air into the new structure's interior, PAU's founder, Vishaan Chakrabarti, said in a presentation before the commission's vote. Prior to the vote, Commission Chairwoman Meenakshi Srinivasan called PAU's design “a very fascinating and really creative approach” that will “breathe new life” into the “functionally obsolete” refinery. Domino Sugar Corp. occupied the American round-archstyle refinery until 2004. It was constructed in 1881 to 1884. Commissioner Jeanne Lutfy said before the vote that the glass buildingwithin-a-building's design “embraces the future by embracing the sky.”

Here's the Domino Sugar Refinery with 325 Kent Ave., Two Trees Management’s newly Brooklyn Eagle photos by Lore Croghan constructed apartment building, at right

At a Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing in late October, Two Trees Management CEO Jed Walentas called the refinery the “epicenter” of the company's redevelopment of an 11-acre waterfront Williamsburg site that Domino Sugar Corp. formerly owned. In addition to converting the refinery into an office building with ground-floor retail space and public access, Two Trees Management is constructing about 2,300 apartments, including more than 700 affordable units, at the site and creating six acres of parkland. The mega-project's estimated completion date is 2024. PAU's new design for the Domino Sugar Refinery's

makeover replaces one that architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle did for Two Trees Management. The Landmarks Preservation Commission approved Beyer Blinder Belle's design in 2014. Commissioner Michael Devonshire, who voted against PAU's refinery redesign plan, said it “destroys a viable building and turns it into a ruin.” He said he was troubled that tests done in 2015 on the landmark's brick facade did not include a test for absorbency — which would indicate whether the bricks would be vulnerable to damage by frost action. Commissioner Michael Goldblum said that when the absorbency test is done, if the results are “bad,” PAU needs to have “a Plan B” design that would protect the bricks from exposure to the weather.

Here's a look inside the office building that will be constructed inside Domino Sugar Refinery's brick facade.

Raffle and gift baskets on display at St. Mary’s Christmas Boutique By John Alexander INBrooklyn

In what’s become a yearly tradition, St. Mary’s Antiochian Church on 81st Street and Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge will hold its popular Christmas boutique on Saturday, Dec. 2 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free, and what’s different this year is that it will be the first time the event is being held in St. Mary’s newly renovated Couri Hall. According to event organizer Gale Zarr, “St. Mary’s Christmas Boutique is a Bay Ridge community event which celebrates the Christmas season with our neighbors while promoting those wonderful shopkeepers who have been so generous towards the event.” In past years, people have come to from all over Brooklyn to shop for their holiday gifts. And there is always a wide selection to choose from. The boutique features all kinds of vendors who, along with various Christmas items, will be featuring unique gift baskets and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. Gift items include Regency Christmas ornaments, linens, wreaths, collectibles, antiques, poinsettias, children’s novelties, china, housewares and costume jewelry.

The boutique is also a family destination with Santa’s workshop set up for all the kids to get a chance to meet jolly old St. Nick and have their picture taken with him. There will be a 50/50 raffle. Last year’s winner won over $1,000. There will also be drawings for Christmas gift baskets that contain gift certificates and merchandise donated by local shopkeepers, as well as a basket of cheer and a Sahadi gift basket with delicious treats. Those stopping by will find plenty of food at the event, and the kitchen will serve pizza, hummus, tabouli and spinach pies. The bakery will have homemade desserts including pastries, brownies and cookies. There will also be a café with available seating. Zarr adds, “We encourage everyone to shop for the holidays since our merchandise is very reasonably priced. The boutique features items for gift giving which include Regency Christmas ornaments and decorations, linens, wreaths, poinsettias, children’s novelties, antiques, costume jewelry and much more, all sold by the Ladies Club of St. Mary’s. There will also be vendors selling jewelry, novelties and spices.” All proceeds will help with the maintenance of the newly renovated church hall.

NY Jets Visit Fort Hamilton Army Base NFL Stars Coach Army Game in Bay Ridge By John Alexander INBrooklyn

Three members of the New York Jets spent an entire day at Fort Hamilton Army Base in Bay Ridge. They came to spend time with the troops and coach a football game between two teams of army soldiers. Jets quarterback Josh McCown, linebacker Demario Davis and wide receiver Chad Hansen coached a friendly flag football match on Tuesday at the Fort Hamilton Athletic Field. The Jets donated customized green-and-white team jerseys and official footballs for what they dubbed “Fort Hamilton’s Turkey Bowl.” The Jets stars offered valuable pointers before they were split up into two teams. McCown’s team sported white Jets jerseys, while Davis’s team wore green Jets jerseys. Both had the word “army” on the back. The teams were made up of members of the New York City Recruiting Battalion with participants from all over the New York City area. One team represented Brooklyn and the other Manhattan, Staten Island, the Bronx, Westchester County and Long Island. All three Jets players took the time to greet the soldiers, sign autographs and answer questions. McCown has helped the Jets defy Eagle photos by Arthur De Gaeta expectations this year and leads a team that Damario Davis’ Green team is all ready to go up against Josh McCown’s White team. has shown much promise throughout lyn quite a few times, addthe season.

Peter Sicoli, commanding officer at Fort Hamilton told the Eagle. “We are very pleased to host the team and have them here on the base and to be participating in this event. I think it’s really, really fun for our family members and for our soldiers and we are appreciative of the Jets organization for doing this.” When asked how important it was to see an NFL team like the Jets come out to support the troops, Lt. Col. Judd Floris, commander of the New York City Recruiting Battalion, responded, “It’s very important. Every organization that supports the military is a friend to the Army. “And being a member of the Army for almost 20 years, it’s great to see an organization, especially from the National Football League, here to support our military. It makes me proud as an American and makes my soldiers appreciate what the Jets have done.” Two of the three Jets stars had never been to Brooklyn before.

Reclaim NY Study Crunches Numbers for Southwest Brooklyn By Paula Katinas INBrooklyn

A new study reveals what many residents of Southwest Brooklyn have been complaining about for years: It is very expensive to live there. The nonprofit organization Reclaim New York crunched the numbers to determine the cost of day-today life in Bay Ridge and other Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods and came up with some sobering conclusions. The study zeroed in on Sheepshead Bay, Dyker Heights, Sea Gate, Bay Ridge and Brighton Beach. The researchers looked at everything from housing costs, taxes, food expenses, even cell phone bills. The study, called the “Affordability Crisis Report,” concluded that if you take all of the taxes residents pay and add it to the cost of basic expenses, Southwest Brooklyn residents in nearly all income levels are struggling to make ends meet. Saving money for a rainy day is next to impossible, the report concluded. In Bay Ridge, the report found, a middle-class family earning the neighborhood median income of $62,761 a year will spend $18,389 a year on rent. That’s nearly 30 percent of their annual income. The study also found that the Bay Ridge family is also hit hard in the wallet by the fact that their transportation expenses amount to more than 19 percent of their income. Meanwhile, a family in Dyker Heights earning double the median income of $128,500 a year for that neighborhood has only $2,245, or 2 percent, of their hard-earned money left over after taxes and expenses, according to Reclaim New York. Things aren’t any better in Sheepshead Bay, where a family of four making the area’s median income of $71,115 is left with next to nothing after taxes and living expenses. Talk about living paycheck to paycheck! The “Affordability Crisis Report” also took a long, hard look at several neighborhoods on Staten Island. “Our report takes a personal, local look at the bottom-line impact of New York City and state policies that drive up the cost of living, making it difficult for families to build a future here,” Reclaim New York ExArtist: Leon Polk Smith. Gallery: Lisson Gallery. ecutive Director Brandon Muir said in a statement. Residents of Brooklyn and Staten Island aren’t kidding

Bay Ridge is one of the neighborhoods the organization Reclaim New York studied to determine the true cost of living in Brooklyn. Eagle file photo by Paula Katinas when they say they struggle to make ends meet, Muir said. “New Yorkers feel these burdens as their hardearned money never seems to be enough to get ahead. By examining the full slate of expenses they have to pay, and going down to the zip code level, we shine a light on where all that money is going,” he said. Muir pointed to rent, transportation costs and taxes as some of the main culprits. “We see families unable to build a solid future when making double or triple the median income. It’s a clear sign policies at every level of government have failed to keep our communities affordable,” he stated. SEEresidents PAGES 18-19 New Yorker state pay nearly 200 different

taxes, according to the study. Residents pay the 16th highest sales tax in the country, the report found. “Nobody works harder than New Yorkers, and it is awful to see people keeping so little of their earnings after taxes and expenses take a massive bite,” Muir added. “Government is driving the cost of living up, not down. Citizens have to ask how Albany and City Hall can keep making this affordability crisis worse, and failing to relieve pressure from working and middle-class families.” To read the full Affordability Crisis Report visit Photo courtesy of Carla Shen www.reclaimnewyork.org/new-york-city-affordability-crisis.
