His vision will improve the lives of regular Americans living in the 11th District but he will need more than two years to do it. Hopefully, his first priority will be to tackle the problems of our overburdened transit system. Federal support could help avert an MTA toll and fare hike. The agency announced it will likely raise bus and subway fares and tolls, which has drawn well deserved criticism. It’s too bad we can’t use political lobbying money to actually help the people.

A spokesperson for DOT said the agency is planning to take a look at the corner where Emur was killed. “DOT is looking into potential safety enhancements here, and we will also be opening a new signal study,” the spokesperson told this newspaper via email the day after the crash.

get school cafeterias to serve nutritious lunches and was one of the first education advocates to speak out against child abuse. She got her start as an education advocate when she served as Parent-Teacher Association president at P.S. 204 in the early 1960s. “Mafalda DiMango’s efforts and achievements in education cannot be overstated,” Brannan told this newspaper in an email. “Our community is forever grateful for the impact she had on generations of students and parents. We not only pay tribute to her amazing life and tremendous accomplishments with Mafalda DiMango Way, but we remind present and future generations that a great education is the great equalizer for all children, no matter where they or their parents come from.” For the DiMango family, having a street co-named for the educational matriarch is a dream come true, according to Hon. Patricia DiMango, one of DiMango’s two daughters. “It’s a reflection of all of the accomplishments she had during her lifetime. She sacrificed a lot of time with her family to help the children of this community. She put the lives of others ahead of her own life,” she told this newspaper. “When she was coming up, in the 1960s, it was an era when women felt they didn’t have a real voice, yet she accomplished so much. And she did it by being selfless.

She wasn’t a braggart.” Patricia, a former New York State Supreme Court justice, is one of the stars of the hit CBS show “Hot Bench.” Her sister, Joanne DiMangoOrr, is a retired educator. Both sisters attended P.S. 204 as children. She is looking forward to the ceremony. “It’s particularly meaningful to my sister and me to have it on that corner because we grew up on that block,” she said. The timing of the ceremony is also significant, Patricia said. “My father [Anthony DiMango] will be 95 later this month. We’re so happy he’s still alive to see this tribute to my mother,” she said. The family is grateful to Brannan for sponsoring the legislation and also expressed gratitude to Carlo Scissura, president of the New York Building Congress. Scissuira, who served with DiMango on the school board, pushed for the street corner co-naming. “We mentioned it to Carlo Scissura and he got it moving,” Patricia said. “There are very few people who are more deserving of such an honor than Mafalda,” Scissura told this newspaper. “When you think about why we name a street after someone, you look for dedication to community and a life of service. All of those things were true of her.” The fact that the posthumous

honor is taking place outside P.S. 204 is fitting, according to Scissura. “P.S. 204 was a big part of her life,” he said.

The school named its auditorium after DiMango in a ceremony that took place two months before she died.

he city should expand its definition of diversity when it comes to the elite high schools that are now at the center of an affirmative action struggle, state Sen. Andrew Gounardes told an audience of parents at an education town hall in Bay Ridge. Gounardes opposes a de Blasio administration proposal to eliminate the Specialized High School Admissions Test, the entrance exam used as the sole admissions criteria for schools such as Brooklyn Technical High School. Mayor Bill de Blasio and Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza are pushing to change the admissions criteria at elite high schools to bring more diversity to

the student body, particularly black and Latino youngsters. But Gounardes said the city should “widen the definition of diversity” to include Asian students, many of whom do well on the SHSAT and gain admission to the top schools. “We have a very diverse student body here in District 20,” Gounardes said at the town hall, which took place at McKinley Intermediate School on May 2. Gounardes, a Democrat, represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and several other neighborhoods in Southwest Brooklyn. His district includes a large population of Asian-Americans. Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus, who also spoke at the town hall, said she has discussed the lack of diversity at the city’s specialized high schools

Could two-way toll on Verrazzano be used to reduce tolls for all drivers? BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

T

wo-way tolls on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge could have another benefit. Days after a group of federal officials representing Brooklyn and Staten Island held a press conference to announce that they were pursuing legislation that would restore toll collection in both directions on the bridge, Republican Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, who represents portions of Staten Island and Brooklyn, has weighed in with a suggestion, that the revenue that is expected to be derived from

the switch — with drivers no longer able to make an end-run around paying tolls by using other crossings to get onto Staten Island — be earmarked for toll reduction. Under the current tolling system, motorists drive from Staten Island to Brooklyn for free, while drivers headed the other way pay a one-way toll of $19. Under a two-way toll, non E-ZPass motorists would pay $9.50 each way. The new two-way tolling legislation would bring back the two-way tolls 33-years after the federal government instituted a one-way system on the Brooklyn-Staten Island span. It was first introduced at a press conference held by U.S Reps. Max Rose, Nydia

Velazquez and Jerrold Nadler, all Democrats, along with MTA Chair and CEO Patrick Foye. They explained that the MTA had recently conducted a study proving two-way tolling would bring $10 to $15 million in additional revenue to make improvements to the bridge, which Malliotakis says should already be funded by the existing Verrazzano Bridge toll revenue of nearly $500 million a year. “I’m generally supportive of two-way tolling but I would like to see the study made public and I’d like to see the extra revenue it creates to go toward lowering the bridge toll for my constituents,” said Malliotakis.

with de Blasio. However, Frontus, who has a doctorate and came to politics from the world of academia, said she is hesitant to scrap the SHSAT. But the lack of diversity is a major issue, according to Frontus, a Democrat whose district includes Coney Island and parts of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. “I agree with the diagnosis that there is a problem but I disagree with the solution,” she said. Still, Frontus said she isn’t all that wild about the SHSAT. “This idea that the test is perfect, that it was handed down by God, we’re lying to ourselves if we believe that,” she said. Eliminating the SHSAT would require state legislation, which was perhaps why parents asked Gounardes and Frontus for their views on the subject.

Protesters marched through the streets of Sunset Park to call for safeguards to be established at all construction sites.

MARCHERS DEMAND CITY DO MORE TO ENSURE SAFE CONSTRUCTION SITES BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Hundreds of protesters marched late last month in Sunset Park in memory of an immigrant construction worker who was killed on the job and to demand that the city take action to safeguard work sites. The marchers, organized by the grassroots organization Workers Justice Project, walked past Seventh Avenue and 39th Street, the site where Luis Almonte was killed after a 30-foot-high wall collapsed on him in September. The march, which took place on April 28, coincided with Workers’ Memorial Day, a day that pays tribute to employees killed on the job. Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, a Democrat who represents

Sunset Park and Red Hook, joined the marchers. Almonte, an immigrant from the Dominican Republic, was one of the six workers in New York City who died on the job over the past seven months, according to the Workers Justice Project. “We cannot let these employers own our lives,” said construction worker Luis Albendano, a WJP member. The marchers observed a moment of silence at the site of Almonte’s deadly accident. Construction sites are getting more and more dangerous, according to WJP Executive Director Ligia Guallpa. “The construction industry is a problem. It’s one of the deadliest industries. And these deaths are preventable,” she told this newspaper.

and Third Avenue. Witnesses say the man was struck by 38-year-old Mohamed Samb, who was driving a 2006 Ford truck at the center median of the sidewalk on the southwest corner of Third Avenue. Samb, who cops say smelled of alcohol and whose eyes were bloodshot, allegedly left the scene but was later

found near 64th Street and Second Avenue. Cops determined that Samb, who blew a .08 percent on a breathalyzer, was intoxicated. He was arrested for driving under the influence, reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident. The victim was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn where he is said to be in stable condition.

According to the NYPD, on May 5 at around 12 p.m., the robber approached a 16-year-old who was waiting for the northbound R train at the 25th Street station and brandishing a knife, demanded the victim’s wallet, which he handed over. Later, cops say, around $90 worth of unauthorized charges were made on the victim’s credit card. Cops describe the suspect as a black male with dreadlocks, 16-18 years-old. He was last seen wearing a black and yellow tracksuit and white sneakers, and carrying a black backpack.

City also eyeing Bay Ridge for site of youth center BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

new elementary/ m id d le s c ho ol specializing in arts education will be built in District 20, officials revealed at a town hall sponsored by state Sen. Andrew Gounardes on Thursday. District 20 Superintendent Karina Costantino told parents at the town hall that the new school will be located on 59th Street between Second and Third avenues in Sunset Park and will serve as a school for the arts “rivaling Mark Twain,” a reference to the famed Mark Twain Intermediate School for the Gifted and Talented in Coney Island in District 21. There is no word on when the new school will open. Costantino’s comment came in response to a question from the audience about the possibility of building a specialized high school somewhere in Southern Brooklyn. Gounardes noted that there are only 10 specialized high schools in the

State Sen. Andrew Gounardes and District 20 Superintendent Karina Costantino talked educational issues at the town hall. entire city. The elite schools include Brooklyn Technical High School in Fort Greene. Southern Brooklyn would be a good spot for an elite high school, according to Gounardes, who said one-quarter of the students currently enrolled in the city’s specialized high schools hail from middle

schools in District 20. The district includes 39 elementary and middle schools in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, as well as parts of Bensonhurst, Sunset Park, Borough Park and Flatbush. Gounardes said that while it would be great to get a new high school in

Southern Brooklyn, District 20 is really in need of a new middle school. “Our highest priority, in terms of overcrowding, is our middle schools,” he said. The problem with constructing any new school in the Southern Brooklyn, according to Gounardes, is that the area has

little vacant land on which to build. “There is no new development,” he said. Costantino asked parents in the audience to help the district by being on the lookout for any possible sites for new schools. “Call my office,” she said, adding that she would convey the information to the Department of Education’s real estate office, which would check out the sites. The town hall, which took place at McKinley Intermediate School on Fort Hamilton Parkway, was billed as an event for parents to learn about education and street safety issues. Gounardes, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge and several other Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods, invited police, fire, transportation and health officials to the forum. Educ ationa l topics dominated the evening’s conversation. It was learned at the town hall that an arts school might not be the only new youth-oriented facility coming to the area. Jonathan Yedin, a top aide to Democratic

Councilmember Justin Brannan, revealed that the lawmaker is working with the city to scout for a possible site for a youth/community center in Bay Ridge. One possible site is the former Chase Bank on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 86th Street. The now-empty space is located on the first floor of a building that also houses a municipal garage. The storefront next door is also empty. It formerly housed a greeting card store. “This is all very preliminary,” Yedin said, adding that the city isn’t close to making plans for the site. Another possible site, the former Community Board 10 office on the corner of Gatling Place and 86th Street, is problematic, Yedin said, because it’s located next to a Gowanus Expressway exit. Brannan is serious about finding a location, Yedin said. “It’s definitely on our radar,” he said. Gounardes said he fully supports the effort. “There is a need for a youth center in Southern Brooklyn,” he said.

ROUGH EDGES: ELISE SIEGEL A solo show of ceramic sculpture by Elise Siegel. In this exhibition, a large gathering of Siegel’s idiosyncratic and psychologically expressive portrait busts inhabit the gallery. Although each bust is a distinct individual, they are not portraits of specific persons. Rather, they are embodiments of familiar emotional states — fleeting moments of inner conflict, disquiet, ambivalence and unease. As such, they exude an uncanny sense of vulnerability and project an interiority that creates a psychological tension. When: Thursdays-Sundays through February 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)

ALITA BATTLE ANGEL: PASSPORT TO IRON CITY Guests explore the movie’s Iron City, which has been recreated down to the last detail by the film’s production designers, where they interact with the City’s gritty residents, earn credits by completing puzzles and

challenges, experiment with custom technology built for the retro-future Alita aesthetic, and uncover hidden clues to determine their fate with the city’s controlling force.

ARCHITECTURE OF MEMORY: CHERYL MOLNAR SOLO

The artist’s process begins with documentation: Molnar photographs locations newly traveled and wellknown and loved. These photographs are digitally stitched together, combining landscapes with structures from various “memories.” This is the way we experience memories: we confuse the place and time, the structures bleed together, places patched together in our minds the way Molnar

collages photographs, like concretized memories. These are the improbable landscapes of our memory, given physical shape. On view for “The Architecture of Memory” will be recent collaged paintings on panel as well as small-scale editioned work that reveal much of the early stages of her process, much like “sketches” but done through photographs and digital manipulation. When: By appointment only through February 22nd Where: Greenpoint/Arete Venue and Gallery (67 West Street)

BONNIE COLLURA: PRINCE Bonnie Collura’s sculptural installation Prince critiques our culture’s pattern of repeating iconic characters, gestures, and polarizing traits to create heroes. In her ongoing project, Collura interprets the Prince figure as an amalgamation of four archetypal male characters from history, religion, and popular culture: Jesus, St. Sebastian, C-3PO (the droid from Star Wars), and Abraham Lincoln. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through February 24th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)

ONLY THE BEST Part of this season’s exploration of thematic approaches to collecting, Only The Best highlights new or unexhibited pieces by gallery artists, and takes its name from the wonderful Baron Von Fancy piece that both announces and critiques the exhibition. There are certain qualities particular to photography, and each of these artists is addressing one if not more. Fred Cray uses the photographic materials to confound and to repeat elements. This piece is literally collaged, with a cutout moon placed adjacent

Both hover over a silhouetted dog, David Brandon Geeting continues his still lifes that look like collages, but aren’t. S.B. Walker’s contribution is a landscape that persists in appearing like something else. These are qualities that make photography particularly enticing, appealing, and different from other art. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through February 28th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden Inc (91 Water Street)

FRESH MASTERS: THE URBANGLASS MFA EXHIBITION Curated by Ben Wright, with jurors Graciela Cassel and Graham Caldwell.

A SOUND OF LIGHT, APPEARING AT THE BEND

In this all-encompassing maze-like installation by Barbara Campisi, LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent ‘walls,’ confounding any sense of orientation. The viewers, as they walk inside the piece, complete it through their process of discovery. During

the influence that mass transit has on the stories that are irrevocably woven into the cultural fabric of New York City. When: Tuesdays – Sundays through March 17th, TuesdayFriday: 10am – 4pm Saturday & Sunday: 11am – 5pm Where: Downtown Brooklyn/ New York Transit Museum (99 Schermerhorn St)

WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into cloying sweetness and the faint sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s painful and hard, but also carries the potential for profound transformation. When We Were Strangers is the first part of a lifelong project deconstructing love through the prism of our relationship. This first chapter is a love poem of sorts, one that charts what happens when two people attempt to become something more and less

than that, when we are more unknown stranger to each other than anything else. But love is an ouroboros that eats the past that came before it. Who was I before you? We are interested in the frayed edges, the messy intersections, the elements of ourselves lost and new facets gained in the process, and the limits to all of that. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 22nd, 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/United Photo Industries (16 Main Street)

ENRICO RILEY: NEW WORLD The paintings are part of an unfolding and evolving cycle that investigates themes of historical and contemporary violence, martyrdom, grief, and the middle passage within a spatial domain. Enrico Riley challenges viewers to decipher and contextualize his work’s fractured narratives. For many Americans, exposure to the plethora of recent media examples of reflexive violence perpetrated on African-Americans has blurred the boundaries between the historical record with which our country is so familiar and the problems still facing contemporary culture today. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Prospect Park/Jenkins Johnson Projects (207 Ocean Avenue)

THE OLD STONE HOUSE: WITNESS TO WAR A self-directed exhibit that takes visitors on a journey through the Revolutionary Era in Brooklyn from 1776 until 1783. Ten themed areas allow visitors to explore this history and consider how war impacted the community, what choices citizens had to make at the time, battle strategies, and what makes these issues relevant in today’s world. When: Saturdays & Sundays through August, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It ain’t all brownstones. But it’s all beautiful. Brooklyn’s housing stock is blessed with infinite variety, which is of course a phrase borrowed from Shakespeare. Some stunning neighborhoods look wildly different from other equally fabulous spots. If Brooklyn is a mosaic, the tiles that comprise it are in highly contrasting colors. Spring’s the ideal season to get out and see these fascinating contrasts in the built environment. This time of year, the weather can vary wildly in the course of a single stroll, which adds to the visual intrigue. The scenery changes dramatically when fog suddenly rolls in, as it’s doing while I write this story. When blue skies return, it’s like walking through in a Technicolor movie. Here are 10 terrific spring strolls you can take.

HIGHLAND PARK AND CYPRESS HILLS

There’s a mini-neighborhood within Cypress Hills that’s full of must-see, stand-alone mansions with lawns. It is called Highland Park. Its key artery, Highland Boulevard, leads to a lovely recreation area that’s also called Highland Park. Inside its precincts you’ll find the picturesque Ridgewood Reservoir. The rest of Cypress Hills is pretty great, too. And you’ll want to drop by Cypress Hills Cemetery to pay your respects to the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers superstar and civil rights advocate Jackie Robinson. His grave is there.

Gerritsen Beach’s waters are filled with boats. CARROLL GARDENS

You can become intensely immersed in brownstone architecture by strolling around the Carroll Gardens Historic District. This 160-plus-building area is populated by dignified, understated brownstones built mostly in the late 1860s through the early 1880s. A 19th-century surveyor named Richard Butts laid out the lots in this area with 33.5-foot-deep front yards. Wow. Be sure to stroll around the non-landmarked parts of Carroll Gardens, too. One must-see building is Gothic-style Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary and St. Stephen Roman Catholic Church. It was designed by Patrick Charles Keely, aka the Prince of American Catholic Architects.

GERRITSEN BEACH

This bungalow neighborhood looks like a vacation getaway spot. Many of Gerritsen Beach’s picturesque houses are on or near waterfront of some sort. You see boats everywhere. The neighborhood is located on a peninsula that’s bisected by Shell Bank Canal. Superstorm Sandy did grievous harm to Gerritsen Beach. Residents have fought back hard. Some have elevated their houses above the floodplain. Others had to tear down houses that were beyond repair and construct completely new ones.

Long live the Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

Ten terrific spring strolls to take in Brooklyn It’s important to enjoy Red Hook in the good times. After Superstorm Sandy, things were bad. I will always remember the nuns who run Visitation Residence. They worked and worked to put a flooded, damaged Red Hook group home for developmentally disabled adults back in order. For five months, the residents had to live in temporary quarters in another neighborhood.

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS

Ditmas Park West is a lovely micro-neighborhood in Victorian Flatbush. — Continued from page 10INB —

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT

Montrose Morris is a god. If you love late 19th-century Brooklyn architecture, you’ll know what I mean. A stroll through Bedford-Stuyvesant will offer you an eyeful of his designs, including an apartment building that looks like a French Renaissance chateau. You can find these by walking along Nostrand Avenue from one end of the neighborhood to the other. At brooklyneagle.com you can find my story about what other 19th-century architects also designed buildings on this avenue. Then swing around onto Marcy Avenue and stroll there, too. There’s an eye-catching Morris design at 232 Hancock St. on the corner of Marcy Avenue.

RED HOOK

I’ve got a weakness for shorelines and Key lime pie. Red Hook has both. There are a number of ways to organize a walk in Red Hook. One is to start at Pioneer Works, an art space where cool people hang out. Stroll down commercial corridor Van Brunt Street, sample the goods at Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies and stand on Valentino Pier to see the Statue of Liberty and the setting sun. If you have time, you should also see the remnants of Todd Shipyard, which IKEA turned into a park.

The Promenade is located inside the Brooklyn Heights Historic District. Landmarking law is supposed to protect it. That is all I’m going to say about the famous recreation area above the BQE. The Promenade either will or won’t be demolished, depending on what a blue-ribbon panel decides. So. Walk along the Promenade. Take in the iconic views of the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center. Then stroll around Brooklyn Heights’ streets. One great route involves walking down Willow Street — where Cher’s house in the film “Moonstruck” and the home where Truman Capote wrote “In Cold Blood” are located — and then Willow Place, which is an entirely different road.

GREENPOINT

Here’s the shorthand version of how to spend a great day in waterfront Greenpoint: Eat Polish food on Manhattan Avenue. Sit outdoors at a Franklin Street bar. Shop at Word Bookstore, also on Franklin Street. See the sunset at WNYC Transmitter Park. Last year, I devised a route that will enable you to take care of everything on this to-do list.You can find it on brooklyneagle.com.

VICTORIAN FLATBUSH

Brooklyn has the largest concentration of Victorian woodframe houses in America. Strolling around Victorian Flatbush to see them is the next best thing to owning one of them. Over the years, I have devised walks that take you through numerous Victorian Flatbush micro-neighborhoods. One great one wends around Ditmas Park West. Silent-film star and movie-industry pioneer Mary Pickford was going to live there at 1320 Ditmas Ave. and work at a nearby studio called Vitagraph. At the last minute, so the story goes, Pickford decided not to sign a contract with Vitagraph. She didn’t move into the neighborhood.

SHEEPSHEAD BAY

Bait shops, boats and swans a-swimming. If you walk down Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay, this is what you’ll see. The inland streets of Sheepshead Bay are intriguing, too.

CLINTON HILL

Highland Boulevard runs through Highland Park, which is a miniINBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan neighborhood within Cypress Hills

Clinton Hill is a mecca for mansions — landmarked 19th-century mansions with distinctive designs. Walk the full length of Washington Avenue in this neighborhood and you’ll get an eyeful of them. Turn onto Clinton Avenue for more. Back in the day, Clinton Avenue was called the Gold Coast.

Nationwide Titles Plates . Registration ON THE SPOT PLATES Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from May 7, 1945 ON MAY 7, 1945, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “London (UP) — A German broadcast said today that all remaining German forces in Europe have surrendered, and there were indications here that an Allied proclamation on the end of the war will be made today. There was no confirmation from Allied sources that the Germans have surrendered, but every sign in London was that the end of the war is near. Some sources here said the Allied proclamation may be issued by 6 p.m. double British summer time (noon Brooklyn time). A speaker identified as German Foreign Minister Count Ludwig Schwerin von Krosigk announced over the Flensburg radio at 2:09 p.m. (8:09 Brooklyn time) that the high command of the German armed forces have surrendered unconditionally all “fighting German troops” today. The order for surrender was given by Fuehrer Grand Adm. Karl Doenitz, the broadcast said. It came on the 2,074th day of the European war.”

ON MAY 8, 1937, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Lakehurst (AP) — ‘Happy Landings’ gifts for travelers aboard the ill-fated Hindenburg lay unclaimed today in the office of the American Zeppelin Transport Company. Gloom hung like a pall over the Naval air base despite bright sunshine that filtered through the blackened skeleton of the once luxurious silver-gleaming dirigible. Armed sentries kept the curious public at a distance from the U.S. Naval Air Station, and only officials and the press were permitted to approach close enough to see the fallen queen of the skies. In the Zeppelin office, the walls were still bright with colored posters of the Hindenburg sailing majestically through pastel skies over the towers of Manhattan. ‘Two days to Germany,’ they proclaimed.”

Riders cycle through rain during 42nd annual Five Boro Bike Tour BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

R

iding in the rain! Despite rough weather throughout the day, thousands of cyclists rode on during the annual TD Five Boro Bike Tour. The 42nd annual event, held this year on May 5, once again offered riders 40 miles of car-free New York City streets across the five boroughs. Ken Podziba, president and CEO of Bike New York, discussed the bad weather and how attendees rallied to have a good time. “It rained the entire time,” Podziba said. “It’s really unfortunate, but the riders who rode all seemed to have a great experience and a really good time. I was cheering people on and they seemed to be happy and feeling like they earned

as possible. “The good news is our volunteers showed up,” he said. “These are people not getting paid. It says a lot about who they are as people. So many of them love this annual event and they feel it’s a part

Frank Tylor, from the Bronx, was biking over the Verrazzano when his bike pedal broke. He walked with his bike for the rest of the tour.

their medal at the end of the race.” The race started at Church and Franklin Streets in Lower Manhattan. The route traveled north through Midtown and Central Park, part of the South Bronx, and skirted the East River on the FDR Drive. After crossing the Queensboro Bridge, the tour looped through Astoria, entered

Brooklyn on the Pulaski Bridge and continued south. Near Downtown Brookly n, riders entered the Gowanus Expressway, which led to the Verrazzano Bridge and a festival at the finish line in Fort Wadsworth, Staten Island, after which cyclists rode to the Staten Island Ferry. Although some of the 32,000 registered riders didn’t show up, Podziba said, volunteers stepped up to make the event as seamless

of them. W hen I think of this event and the ownership, I think it’s owned by the community of New York City. But these

volunteers have a stake in it also. They are married to it. That’s why so many of them came out and worked all day long in the rain.” The tour is the largest in the United States and second largest in the world. “We had one third [of registered] riders not show up,” Podziba said. “That was disappointing, but you can also look at it as two thirds did show up.” The ride also serves as a charity, which only adds to the success of each year’s event. “We are a nonprofit and we provide free bike education,” Podziba explained. “All of the proceeds go back to the community. Last year we provided bike education to 29,000 New Yorkers. Almost every single person who rode in the tour was contributing to one of our students.” Podziba finds that the Five Boro Bike Tour’s diversity is what makes it special. “What I like most about our ride is, I believe it’s the most inclusive ride in the world,” he said. “Most rides have just middle-aged men. This one has a lot of women, children, elderly, people with disabilities, people from 27 countries throughout the world. Itreally feels like a microcosm of the world and that’s what it should be in New York City.”

OPINION

R

CRENSHAW: AN AMERICAN HERO

ep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas (Houston area) was in Bay Ridge this past Saturday to headline a fundraiser at Delia’s on Third Avenue for Congressional candidate Nicole Malliotakis. The event was a sell-out with an overflowing crowd to support Nicole and meet the famous congressmember and highly decorated war hero. Crenshaw made a point in his remarks of stating that Nicole was the first Congressional candidate on whose behalf he has made an appearance. Crenshaw could not have been more welcoming. He literally posed for dozens of photos, chatting it up with anyone who approached him. He is soft-spoken, but with the edge of a public official who has seen a great deal, been through a great deal, and has a clear view of what is necessary to move our nation forward. He expressed this view

T

in his off-the-cuff remarks that covered a number of points about our nation’s history, its role in the world, the responsibility of its citizens and the failures of the left-wing members of the Democratic Congressional Caucus. In his remarks. Crenshaw stressed his conservative views. The crowd went wild time after time as he made his remarks. Not surprisingly, the gathering in Brooklyn contained many veterans who wanted to meet Crenshaw, a former Navy Seal who was severely injured as the result of an IED blast in Afghanistan. Nicole, in thanking Crenshaw, reminded the crowd that with her election and the election of a handful of additional Republicans to Congress, the House would flip, with Nancy Pelosi being replaced by a Republican speaker and Crenshaw playing a greater role. That received a big cheer.

The Brooklyn event in support of Nicole was attended by many of the senior Republican and Conservative leaders in the district and city. They included Brooklyn and Staten Island GOP Chairpeople Teddy Ghorra and Brendan Lantry; Brooklyn Conservative Chairperson Fran Vella-Marrone, who was accompanied by several party officers including Ross Brady and David Ryan, himself a highly decorated Iraqi war veteran; Manhattan GOP Chairperson and New York City Regional Vice Chairperson Andrea Catsimatidis; former GOP Chairperson Craig Eaton; and Julie Killian, last year’s GOP/ Conservative candidate for lieutenant governor. Former state Sen. Marty Golden was also present and spoke in support of his friend Nicole. I attended and acted as emcee in my capacity of Conservative Party state chairperson.

COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR

Nicole, in thanking Crenshaw, reminded the crowd that with her election and the election of a handful of additional Republicans to Congress, the House would flip, with Nancy Pelosi being replaced by a Republican speaker and Crenshaw playing a greater role. Later that evening on Staten Island, Nicole hosted a veterans town hall with Dan Crenshaw that was also a major success. *** The New York State Conservative Party has started a petition drive in opposition to efforts by the governor and New York State legislative Democrats to provide driver’s licenses

SUNDAY OF SADNESS

his past Sunday, May 5, was a day full of heavy hearts in Brooklyn. The day brought news that Lew Fidler had died at the age of 62. Serving on the City Council from 2002 to 2013, he had recently worked in the borough president’s office. Heading the 41st Assembly District Democratic Club, he was a community leader who advocated for grassroots issues. Lew was the prime sponsor of the 2013 bill banning styrofoam food and beverage containers that went into effect last year after a fiveyear-long court challenge. Polystyrene clamshells and coffee cups had created an insidious litter and pollution problem, breaking into smaller pieces that would be found strewn about public spaces, and harming birds and fish.

Lew was behind restoring funding in the city budget for homeless youth shelter beds, particularly those providing refuge for LGBTQ kids. When about 3,800 city youth were finding themselves on the street each night — nearly half of them identifying as LGBTQ — he worked to help the most vulnerable among us. Lew’s wife and sons have lost a devoted husband and father. The city has lost a real mensch who devoted years to bettering our communities. Just hours after Brooklyn politicians were informing their constituents of Lew’s passing, many of those same officials gathered for a vigil on a corner in Bath Beach. Alongside street safety advocates and concerned neighbors, they had come to the location where three days earlier a three-year-old

boy had been killed in a crosswalk by a delivery van that had failed to yield. Emur Shavkator had been struck while riding his scooter across the street with his mother and threemonth-old sister. Though he may have pushed ahead of his mother, the result should never have been the death of a young boy who was within a crosswalk that affords pedestrians the right of way.

Making our streets safer requires a comprehensive approach, as no one solution will address the myriad problems. As I stood in the steady rain that evening, listening to those who had come to remember Emur and demand further street safety improvements, I glanced down the street and noticed that

to undocumented aliens. The petition can be found at cpnys.org and on the party’s Facebook site, Conservative Party of New York State. The party’s memo in opposition to the enabling legislation sponsored by state Sen. Luis Sepúlveda and Assembly member Marcos Crespo reads, “A New York State Driver’s License is a portal to a myriad of privileges; it is the basic standard for identification within New York State. Certain buildings entry requires an ID, certain travel requires an ID and of course driving requires a license. In order to obtain a NYS Driver’s License, you must produce: Proof of identity, such as valid license, birth certificate or passport, with your full first, middle (if applicable) and last name. This name, as it appears on your proof of identity, will

be displayed on your card as required by federal law. Proof of Social Security Number or Social Security Number ineligibility. The Sepúlveda/Crespo bill provides undocumented aliens with a New York State driver’s license. The bill calls on the New York State commissioner of DMV to “promulgate regulations to establish acceptable proof of age and identity, thereby lowering the current acceptable proofs of identity.” The license will not meet Federal ID proof requirements, which in itself should be a red flag. Finally, the Conservative Party maintains that American citizenship is a privilege. Until the federal government can agree upon a path to citizenship, those who come here illegally do not have the right to dilute and demand the same rights granted to citizens.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

approaching vehicles encountered the word “STOP” painted on the asphalt, followed by a stopline, and then the crosswalk. Three separate elements warned drivers of what they are required to do. The following day, with the street no longer closed to traffic and no crowd gathered, I returned to the intersection. Vehicle after vehicle rolled past the word “STOP,” over the stopline and into the crosswalk. All exercised due caution inching into Benson Avenue to look for other vehicle traffic, but not one of the dozen or so drivers I saw stopped before the crosswalk.

Making our streets safer requires a comprehensive approach, as no one solution will address the myriad problems. Using every tool to make drivers more aware of potential dangers to pedestrians and cyclists should be paramount. Pedestrian deaths rose slightly last year, but there have been 42 percent more in the first four months of 2019, compared to this time a year ago. The words “crisis” and “epidemic” are apropos when discussing the scourge of fatalities we are seeing on our streets. I joined street safety advocates at City Hall on Tuesday and held a sign for fouryear-old Luz Gonzalez who was killed by a hit-and-run

driver in Brooklyn last July. The group called on the City Council to pass the Vision Zero Design Standard, which would expedite implementation of life-saving safety improvements. Considering roadway safety upgrades when streets are repaved is common sense. At Sunday’s vigil, the most moving speech came from a family friend, Dilshod. As it was delivered in Uzbek, I understood none of the words, but I knew exactly what he said. Each time I cross a street with my three-yearold and four-year-old, Emur and Luz will now be at the forefront of my mind, as well as when I join with neighbors to push for much-needed safety improvements.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Rose vs. Malliotakis battle looms as Verrazzano two-way toll debate intensifies

Toll battle revives human-friendly Verrazzano Lifeway across the Narrows

With Bay Ridge Councilmember Justin Brannan joining Staten Island-Brooklyn U.S. Rep. Max Rose and two other legislators to urge that the years-long one-way toll ($19 and sure to climb) on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge be dumped in favor of an equal ($9.50, as of this writing) two-way toll, the ensuing controversy might stir some unintended consequences. For instance, Transportation Alternatives may look to renew a long-simmering campaign that once showed great promise for bikers, walkers and wheelchair riders: the Verrazzano Lifeway. Adding fuel to the publicity fire is a simmering feud between Rose and RepublicanConservative Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, who claims that transit bureaucrats will misuse the additional millions of dollars in tolls collected especially from interstate truckers who currently use the no-toll Staten Island entrance to do their business and then find a toll-free exit from the city later the same day. In truth, it’s more of a campaign issue than a feud because Malliotakis, who ran a notable but losing mayoral campaign against Mayor Bill de Blasio, has announced that she will oppose the one-term congressmember when

he seeks re-election in 2020. Rose defeated incumbent U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan in 2016, most observers believe, because the army veteran was the beneficiary of a “blue wave” — a rash of anti-Trump resentment among voters in this district, which includes all of Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, including Bay Ridge and parts of Bensonhurst. Each candidate knows that the 2020 vote can hinge on whether or not U.S. President Donald Trump is under impeachment, or even still in office, about 16 months from now. Trump won the 11th Congressional District by 10 points, so Rose clearly had to gain the support of pro-Trumpers to defeat Donovan. His military background, which included service in Afghanistan for which he was awarded a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart, could have been a critical factor cutting into Trump’s total turnout here.

Transportation Alternatives should shift support back to much-needed Verrazzano Lifeway

Before it became obsessed with crisscross-

Photo courtesy of Chuck Otey ing thousands of city streets with labyrinthine bike lanes, Transportation Alternatives — a powerful lobbying group coasting atop the burgeoning bike-riding explosion — was devoted to travel projects that would benefit all who take to the roads, as well as bike and foot paths. Logically, Transportation Alternatives should be using the two-way toll controversy as an opportunity to champion a cause that could healthfully impact many thousands of lives and provide an environment-sparing link between Brooklyn and Staten Island, where thousands also fled from Brooklyn when the bridge provided an easy means of escape some 55 years ago. Current Transportation Alternatives leaders should be reminded that the organization was a major proponent of the still-idling effort to install the Verrazzano Lifeway — a walking, peddling, wheelchair-rolling bridge straddling the Verrazzano. “Master Builder” Robert Moses had promised that a biking and walkway would be part of the bridge when it opened to great fanfare back in 1964. Engineers built the span with the “Lifeway”

U.S. Rep. Max Rose (at podium) was joined by several elected officials at a recent press conference, all of whom spoke out in favor of bringing back two-way tolls on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge. Photo courtesy of Rose’s office

in mind, so there’s only the cost and political will to deal with. Since then various authorities have collected billions in toll fees — also in contravention to Moses’ promise to make the bridge toll-free by 1984, when its construction bonds would be finally paid off. Various agencies skilled at milking the proceeds of such cash cows for other transit causes have steadfastly rejected every proposal to install the Verrazzano Lifeway. Thanks to the dormant, but not dead, Verrazzano Lifeway Committee — an effort ignited by the Merchants of Third Avenue, now led by avid cyclist Bob Howe — which joined with Transportation Alternatives, Bob Lutz, East Coast Greenway and others, thousands of residents signed petitions urging that public travel agencies fulfill Moses’ promise and open the bridge to enjoyment and utility by thousands who now can cross only in motorized, combustion-creating vehicles. Malliotakis, who defeated one of the state’s most respected legislators in Democrat Janele Hyer-Spencer to win her seat more than five years ago, is clearly a tough and youthful campaigner who would cut an impressive figure biking across the Verrazzano (perhaps as a congressmember) when the Lifeway finally opens to strictly human traffic.

ewis A. Fidler, a former City Counc i l m em b er and Democratic district leader in southern Brooklyn, died on Sunday at the age of 62. Fidler was found unresponsive in Queens on Friday evening. He was taken to Elmhurst Hospital where he died on Sunday afternoon, according to police. There were no indications of injuries, and police are awaiting the medical examiner’s determination of cause of death. He is survived by his wife, Robin, and two children, Max, 31, and Harry, 28. From 2002 to 2013, Fidler represented the communities hugging the southern Brooklyn coastline from Sheepshead Bay to Canarsie. He is widely remembered as a staunch advocate for homeless youth, fighting for more funds and more beds in the city’s shelter system. He was the architect and the main proponent of the city’s styrofoam ban, and was a sponsor or co-sponsor of 452 bills that were enacted into law. Outside of the Council, he helped launch the careers of several prominent lawmakers and political operators. He was a husband and a father, and an avid baseball fan who helped establish the first-ever fantasy baseball

league. Former staffers of the councilmember remembered him Monday as a demanding but genial boss who prized constituent services and retail politics. “He had an amazing ability to bring people in or to reach out,” said Brad Reid, who began working for Fidler as his counsel in 2009. Reid currently serves as the City Council’s assistant deputy director of the Infrastructure Division. “He was a believer that you get a lot further by talking to people and including them.” Fidler was born on May 27, 1956, and raised in East Flatbush. He attended nearby schools P.S. 208, J.H.S. 285 and Tilden High School. He graduated from SUNY Albany in 1975, and received his law degree from NYU School of Law in 1978 at the age of 22. His parents, Milton and Sylvia, were active

members in the East Flatbush community, Reeves Eisen said. Eisen served as chief of staff for all of Fidler’s 12 years on the Council and is currently a community liaison for State Sen. Andrew Gounardes. She and Fidler were childhood friends, having met at a Catskills summer camp in 1969. “His mom Sylvia was head of the parent-teacher association for every school he went to,” Eisen said. “He was born into this. He learned his lessons as a kid and he ran with them. It was all about doing good for people. He was a toddler and he was going to meetings.” Fidler's first run for office came in 1985 with an unsuccessful bid for City Council. In 1992, he became district leader of the 41st Assembly District, a role in which he served up until his death. Fidler won his 2001 campaign for City Council and took office in 2002. He chaired the Committee on Youth Services and was the assistant majority leader to Speaker Christine Quinn. He is remembered for his fight for runaway youth, many of whom were LGBTQ+. When term limits — which Fidler opposed — were enacted, he left office in 2013. “Through the years he just got more energized, more determined, and helped even more people,” Eisen

Clavin Sons, Inc. 7722 Fourth Avenue Brooklyn, New York 11209 718- 745-1445 www.clavinfuneralhome.com said of the politician’s tenure. “He loved his community, he loved his constituents and he loved his job. If not for term limits, he would love to have stayed in the job for life.” He campaigned in the 2012 State Senate special election, losing by 14 votes to Republican David Storobin. Weeks later, the seat was eliminated in redistricting. Outside of politics, Fidler is remembered for his sense of humor, his sense of style and his fanhood. Fidler helped run the business of the rotisserie baseball inventors — the “granddaddy of all fantasy sports,” as the councilmember once described it. He was an “expert” in the rules and also claimed to have written the rules for fantasy hockey. He was also celebrated for his trademark suspenders. When staffers held a Council outing, they designed t-shirts with suspenders imprinted on them in Mets colors. A photo of the team was printed onto a plaque Fidler gave to all employees when his term ended. “Thank you for the thousands you served,” it read. Additional reporting by Paula Katinas.

Sunset Park residents fight to preserve historic rowhouses BY LORE CROGHAN LORE@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

D

evelopers pose a threat to Sunset Park homes built more than a century ago for immigrants, according to preservation advocates. About 30 activists and neighborhood residents testified at a hearing on Tuesday on four sections of Sunset Park the city Landmarks Preservation Commission is considering designating as historic districts. “We’re losing our history,” resident Richard Faraino said at the hearing. “We’re losing our aesthetics.” The rowhouses that line the blocks in question were constructed between 1885 and 1912. They were built as two-family homes to make them affordable for working-class Brooklynites. Though smaller than houses built in affluent areas, Sunset Park’s rowhouses are the same fancy architectural styles: Neo-Grec, Romanesque Revival and neo-Renaissance. In 2014, after doing lengthy architectural research and canvassing residents to gauge their level of support for landmarking, the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee asked the LPC to put Sunset Park on its calendar to consider part of it for historic district designation. It wasn’t until January that commissioners

weighed the request — then voted unanimously to calendar the four possible historic districts with a combined total of 500-plus buildings. The districts, which are not contiguous, are located between 44th and 59th streets and Fourth and Seventh avenues. “We’re here today because we worked really hard — but also because the Landmarks Preservation Commission recognizes the threat Sunset Park is under,” Lynn Massimo of the Sunset Park Landmarks Committee said at the hearing.

Here’s a glimpse of rowhouses on 50th Street in Sunset Park. This 50th Street brownstone row seems to extend out to infinity

This fancy fence can be found on 54th Street.

Seen here: Rowhouses on 47th Street in Sunset Park.

“The LPC sees, as we do, how the architectural changes are taking away the sense of place,” she said. More than 3,000 Sunset Park residents have signed a petition in favor of

landmarking and more than 400 homeowners have written letters of support, Massimo said. “Fabric of the future” vs. “right to develop” City Councilmember Carlos Menchaca testified at the hearing. He said residents’ struggle to win landmark protection for their homes is a fight to “preserve the fabric of the future of Sunset Park.” In written testimony, Sunset Park Business Improvement District Executive Director David Estrada said the neighborhood is “at the front line of wildly speculative real estate

development that has accelerated the loss of unique, beautiful and irreplaceable buildings.” One pro-landmarking neighborhood resident said when his grandparents purchased the house that’s now his, it had an outhouse in the backyard and was equipped with gaslights and a coal boiler. Sunset Park’s “beauty is undeniable,” said another pro-landmarking resident, Cynthia Felix. Lisa Alpert of GreenWood Cemetery testified in support of the historic districts’ designation. Several people suggested that additional blocks in the neighborhood should also be considered for landmarking. A small number of people expressed their opposition to historic-district designation. One man said he was against landmarking, and so were several Sunset Park property owners at the hearing who didn’t speak English. Landmarking would be a “big restriction” on their “right to develop” or to sell their properties to developers, he said. He explained that’s why they’d purchased Sunset Park homes in the first place. Landmarks Chairperson Sarah Carroll said the LPC will schedule a vote on the four historic districts’ designation in the very near future.

Brooklyn seniors go for the gold at Senior Games

t was a beautiful morning for a healthy run as a group of dedicated seniors gathered on Monday, May 6 for the fourth annual senior games at the Fort Hamilton Recreation Center, 9941 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Bay Ridge. The kick-off event featured a nine-mile race with a celebratory torch lighting. This year’s competition included shuffleboard, bowling, swimming, basketball, track and field, board games, table tennis, cornhole and pickleball. “This is a great event that I’ve been fortunate to be a part of for the last four years,” said torch bearer Leroy Cummins. “It’s nice to see seniors actively engaged

in running, swimming and doing different exercises as we retire. It’s also a way to stay healthy and physically fit after you’ve retired so that you can enjoy life to the fullest. The New York City Parks Department has been supporting us in these activities and we truly appreciate it.” Community leaders, family and friends gathered outside the senior center at 8:30 a.m. as senior center member John Houlihan opened the ceremony with a stunning rendition of the national anthem, which was followed by singer Gianvito performing the standards “You’ll Never Know” and “Volare.” There was also a performance by tap dancers directly preceding the start of the race. The runners ran through Prospect Park to Grand Army Plaza, and then on

to Eastern Parkway before finishing at 10:45 a.m. outside the Brownsville Recreation Center at Hegeman Avenue. The race was followed by the opening ceremony at 11 a.m. with guest speakers. The senior run featured a cross-section of people. “What’s wonderful about it is you don’t have to be the fastest or the best, the youngest or the oldest; it’s just about everyone getting along and having fun,” said recreation center member June Johnson. Senior Games is presented with support from New York Road Runners, Humana, Bright Health, Cabot Cheese, NYC Taxi & Limousine Commission, the Public Theatre and the NYC Dept. for the Aging. Awards were presented to the first, second and third
