VA Hospital “not closing,” says official at heated town hall meeting BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

“We’re not closing.” That was the definitive statement made by Director of VANY Harbor Healthcare System Martina Parauda regarding the status of the Brooklyn VA Hospital during a two-hour town hall meeting held on the second floor of the center, 800 Poly Place, on Wednesday, July 18. The meeting was highly attended with so many people present that several had to stand outside the room just to listen. The objective of the meeting was to answer the questions veterans submitted, many related to the future of the Brooklyn facility. Some attendees brought signs that read “No Closures at Brooklyn VA Hospital,” an issue that Parauda addressed right away. “I don’t need the signs. There’s no closure of Brooklyn VA Hospital,” she said. “There are no plans to close. I’m not lying about that. I’m here to have an open, factual discussion.” The first question addressed the facility’s long range and immediate plans. “(Our plans are) to remain open both as an inpatient and outpatient facility,” Parauda stated. “There are no plans to close. That is a rumor that, for whatever reason, keeps on going on and on. “ Short-range plans include renovating the operating rooms to recreate them for the 21st century (a project that should be completed by October); ambulatory surgery suites, slated to be finished by January, 2020, and a women’s health clinic that is due for completion by November of this year. The outpatient building will be getting a new roof; that should be completed by 2020 as well. In addition, patients can expect more cosmetic updates, such as new furniture, especially in the lobby and outpatient clinics. “In May, we moved the domiciliary from our Saint Albans campus to

the renovated building 2 across the parking lot to accommodate 40 veterans there,” she said. This occurred, she said, because, “Brooklyn’s campus lent itself more to a complete renovation and had a free standing building in building 2 and we were able to convert the rooms to single and double bedded rooms. At Saint Albans, they were three or four-bed rooms which isn’t state-of-the-art care for anybody.” There were points when the meeting got heated, especially when addressing the ENT Clinic, which veterans thought was going to be closed because a sign had been posted to that effect. Parauda tried to clear the air, recalling that SUNY Downstate, which provided residents to the clinic, had informed the facility in December, 2017, that it “would no longer provide ENT residence to the Brooklyn campus effective on July 1. It doesn’t say why they pulled out in the memo. The medical staff here worked with SUNY Downstate to try to get them to continue to stay here. They said no.” It snowballed from there, with

staffers at the clinic resigning after it became clear that SUNY Downstate would not reconsider. At that point, in March, Parauda said, the facility began a nationwide search for ENT physicians, nurse practitioners and medical assistants. “We never closed the ENT clinic,” Parauda affirmed, noting that, since the end of SUNY Downstate’s residency program, it has been open on Mondays and Thursdays, with an ENT surgeon poised to start there shortly. Parauda also said she would be meeting with the dean of SUNY Downstate on August 6. “You can burn me once, but you can’t burn me twice,” she said. “What else are you planning on pulling? I have to know now to make plans sooner rather than later to provide services for veterans. I have no intention of closing any program here at Brooklyn but I also can’t have it pulled out from under me so I’m scrambling to try to continue those services.” In addition, she said, “We have been reaching out to others seeing if we can partner up.” However, founding director of the New York City Veterans Alliance Kristen Rouse, reminded Parauda of the sign. “We appreciate that you responded to the public pressure and have kept the ENT clinic open two days a week instead of closing it as

the sign on the clinic stated,” she said. “I didn’t put up the sign in the clinic,” Parauda answered. “I’ve been upfront from the beginning. What has been misconstrued is my story. When I learned there was a sign up at the ENT clinic saying it was closing I myself took down the sign because it wasn’t true.” Nonetheless, State Senator Marty Golden, who was in attendance, later said, “If somebody in my office put up a sign that wasn’t authorized, then that person would not be working for me. That person will be fired.” “I have no idea who put up the sign,” Parauda responded. “If someone in my office put it up, then I am still responsible for it. You are responsible.”Golden said. However, some came to Parauda’s defense. “She took every question from the minutiae to the big issues,” said Vietnam veteran Bob Greene. “There are many issues we have in the VA and she is trying to address all of them. I think we’re lucky to have a director like this. She’s dealing with resource issues. She’s trying to juggle a lot. This is not a perfect system but we have to recognize this is a world she didn’t make and she is dealing with forces way out of her control. “Having said that, we have to sort out for ourselves as a community what kind of impact we can have, and I know I want to send to the powers-that-be the message that we’re a united community,” Greene added.

Speeding in Dyker Heights, Bay Ridge a Continuing Problem BY BRANDON SAPIENZA EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

S

peeding drivers have area residents on high alert. Denise Cangemi, a stay-athome mom with an eight-year-old daughter who calls 10th Avenue between 77th and 78th Streets home, contends that the driving near her house has become a danger for her and her family. “If those lights are green, 10th Avenue becomes a raceway,” Cangemi said at a recent meeting of the 68th Precinct Community Council. “I’m pulling my daughter onto the curb to avoid traffic.” Cangemi also contended that despite the proximity of schools such as P.S. 127 and P.S. 204, there are few signs announcing the presence of children, signalling to drivers the need to slow down. “As a parent, I'm horrified and completely concerned when I leave my house, both for a walk and when I must drive,” Cangemi explained. “Every day when I try to exit or enter my driveway, I'm more often than not faced with aggressive situations.” Cangemi attended the community council meeting with other members of BRAKES, Bay Ridge Advocates Keeping Everyone Safe, formed in 2009 in the wake of a series of accidents on local streets in which pedestrians were hit by vehicles whose drivers were going too fast or not paying attention. And, they made it clear that 10th Avenue is hardly an exception when it comes to pedestrian safety. On 72nd Street between Narrows Avenue and Colonial Road, for example, one woman complained about a failure to yield on multiple occasions, while another pinpointed the area around P.S. 185 as an area of concern during pickup and dropoff Monday through Friday. This resident pointed to double parking and aggressive driving by those navigating the area as causes of concern. “It is clear that we have excessive bad driver behavior in our neighborhood. Drivers regularly speed, obstruct intersections and make illegal turns. At the same time they rarely yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk.” Maureen Landers, a BRAKES activist whose son sustained a broken leg after a car struck him and who was injured herself by a speeding motorist in 2009,

told this paper. “You cannot walk along any avenue in Bay Ridge without coming across a vehicle turning into the crosswalk as you, as a pedestrian, are crossing. It is rampant, it is not enforced, it is dangerous, disrespectful and all around a huge detraction from our otherwise beautiful community.” BRAKES recently advocated for expanded speed camera legislation, which the Republican-led State Senate declined to consider last month before ending its session. Without legislation renewing the program, not only will it ebrooklyn media/Photo by Brandon Sapienza not expand, but existing speed cameras Denise Cangemi and her in school zones will be rendered inactive. daughter standing near the But, that’s not the only thing that corner that they believe poses activists want. Cangemi suggested a threat. also, “More enforcement and digital signs which read: ‘Speed Limit and “address this situation.” Your Speed.’” When contacted for comment, CounTo that end, the group has been cilmember Justin Brannan pointed to working to publicize accidents in the need for things like speed cameras. which pedestrians and cyclists have “While the New York State Senate been injured by vehicles, as well as failed us all when it came to life saving bringing pressure to bear on elected school safety speed cameras, there is officials, law enforcement and com- something every driver can do on munity leaders to, as Cangemi says, their own: slow down,” he told this

paper. “Speeding and reckless driving in residential neighborhoods like Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights is just not acceptable. Fixing this problem requires a mix of more enforcement, better street design, and more tools like speed cameras and ultimately drivers taking responsibility for what they do when they get behind the wheel.” "My office regularly receives complaints about cars dangerously speeding on streets throughout my district such as on 86th Street and along Shore Road,” added state Senator Marty Golden. “ For the safety of themselves and all pedestrians, these reckless drivers must slow down and obey the speed limit on our local streets. That is why I continue to support an increase in the number of speed cameras in an effort to calm traffic and save lives." Cangemi said she sees the dawn of a new era in which people are beginning to take action against dangerous drivers. “It is evident that the residents of Bay Ridge have had enough of reckless driving and are ready for change,” she told this paper.

Bay Ridge and Bath Beach ranked among worst neighborhoods for parking BY BRANDON SAPIENZA EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

I

t’s not your imagination. While parking anywhere in Brooklyn is typically no easy task, residents of Bay Ridge and Bath Beach have an even more difficult time finding the right spot — and there’s a study to prove it. The study by Localize.city found that Bath Beach and Bay Ridge, tied with East Elmhurst, Queens, scored 70 complaints to 311 per every 1,000 residents over the past year, ranking ninth and 10th on a citywide list of neighborhoods whose residents gripe the most about difficulty parking. The only Brooklyn neighborhood with more complaints is East Williamsburg, which claimed the number four spot. The remaining neighborhoods in the top 10 are all in Queens, with Long Island City winning the dubious distinction of being number one, with 127 complaints per

1,000 residents. The same study also found that there were an additional 15,000 more cars on the road over the last five years, making parking spaces even harder to come by in all five boroughs, but Brooklyn especially. In total, Brooklyn notched the second highest amount of parking complaints to 311 in New York City with 41 per 1,000, behind Queens, which logged 44 complaints per 1,000 over the past year, and which had the highest number of blocked driveway complaints, almost 24 for every 1,000 residents. Brooklyn residents — who came in first in terms of other parking complaints to 311, 22 for every 1,000 residents — were found to complain the most during weekday mornings about finding parking nearby. Localize.city president Steven Kalifowitz attributes the overall rise in complaints to New Yorkers being New Yorkers. “New Yorkers like to complain

about parking, and New York City has made it easier for them to do so,” Kalifowitz said. “The city’s 311 complaint hotline has added ways for people to complain about parking-related issues beyond calling. In 2013, the city began allowing people to file complaints through a mobile app and online.” In terms of what makes Bath Beach and Bay Ridge such tough parking areas, Kalifowitz blames the high amount of drivers in the area along with the lack of driveways and garages. “Both areas have a lot of drivers and tend to lack enough driveways or garages for neighborhood cars. Bay Ridge has a thriving commercial area, and complaints are likely highest near its shopping corridors,” Kalifowitz explained. While not much can be done about parking problems in South Brooklyn, Kalifowitz offers his advice to help prevent more complaints from being reported, “Obey the city’s parking regulations.”

With Speed Cameras Turned Off, Blame Game Begins BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he finger pointing has begun. On the day speed cameras on New York City streets were due to be turned off, Republican and Democratic lawmakers turned on each other in a fierce effort to assess blame for the failure to keep the cameras operating. State Sen. Martin Golden, a Republican representing Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and other southern Brooklyn neighborhoods, held a press conference in front of P.S. 185 in Bay Ridge Wednesday morning and called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to call the state Senate back into session in Albany to take a vote to reinstate the cameras. “It is the right thing to do. The governor can do this tomorrow morning,” Golden said. Golden questioned why Cuomo won’t act. “The governor is using his bully pulpit for a whole host of things,” Golden said. But Cuomo, who issued a statement even before Golden held his press conference, said that the Republican-led state Senate did not need him to go back into session. They could do that by themselves, he argued. Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan can easily reconvene the Senate, according to Cuomo. "Senator Golden and his conference are playing politics with the lives of children, and it's transparent.

Panel Nixes Liquor License Request by Former Owner of Controversial Club BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

C

ommunity Board 7 has turned thumbs-down on a liquor license request for a new club made by the owner of controversial Sunset Park club Love & Lust, which shut its doors after its liquor license was canceled by the State Liquor Authority (SLA) in May. Community members packed the room for the Tuesday, July 17 Public Safety Committee meeting at which the application made by Imran Jairam, the owner of KB Venture group, on behalf of a new club, Starway 2826 LLC, located at 225 47th Street, the former site of Love & Lust, was discussed. According to CB 7 Chair Cesar Zuñiga, only one committee member voted in favor of the application, with seven voting no and three abstentions, flying in the face of a statement made by the club’s attorney, Eric Sanders, who told members, "The only thing you need to know is there never was any crimes or anything related to the club.”

After the vote. However, Sunset Parkers clearly did not see it that way. While Jairam told committee members, “The charges that were originally sustained are now reversed because I did have a cabaret license and did have a proper security investigations license," attorney Delvis Valdes pointed out, “Now you’ve formed a new corporation and you are the principle of that corporation. So basically you’re just asking for your license back. The only thing different is that the corporate name has changed.” Love & Lust has long had a checkered reputation in the neighborhood,

and has complained of being harassed by the police. This came to a head back in May, when the club filed a $125 million notice of claim against Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez, the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct, alleging that Gonzalez demanded contributions to Puerto Rican relief efforts to forestall enforcement of violations at the bar. Valdes is representing Gonzalez in that action. Back in May, the club had four open cases pending against it with a total of 11 charges, according to the SLA, which said it canceled the liquor license, “due to the sheer number of violations and repetitive nature of the violations.” Police Officer Sean Spencer of the 72nd Precinct recounted for the committee the variety of incidents that had brought police to the club since its opening: one incident inside in 2014; six incidents inside and two outside in 2015; five outside and four inside in 2016; 13 inside and 13 outside in 2017, and five inside and eight outside in 2018. “The charges made against us, we beat 95 percent of those because we proved those were on Second and Third Avenue,” Jairam rejoined. “I understand your facts but we have ours too.” The need for an increased police presence at the club means cops were drawn away from other areas of the precinct, said local activist Maria Roca. “The precinct can’t be everywhere," she said. Things started to get heated when Jairam responded. “We didn’t need it and that’s why it’s under investigation,” he said. “There’s just a lot of false information. I know there’s a big fan club in here for somebody as well.” Jairam was presumably referring to Gonzalez and Zuñiga quickly responded, calling the club owner’s remarks “highly inappropriate. If there is a case that is pending litigation, this is not the forum to talk about it.”

“He was only addressing the question she had,” Sanders responded, adding, “There is no evidence that police resources had been reallocated because of some imbalance in police resources and response.” When asked about noise complaints, Jairam said there hadn’t been any, “because no one lives on the block,” he said. However, Samuel Sierra, the committee chair, pointed out that patrons, on their way to and from the club, walked or drove along residential blocks “We don’t begrudge anyone here from prospering,” he said. “However, it should not be at the expense of the community. Just understand that, although that little area may be industrial, the large surrounding area is not. It’s filled with families.” However, Angela Correa, property manager of two East of Hollywood clubs in Sunset Park, came to Jairam’s defense. “I too went through a lot with the 72nd when Deputy Inspector Gonzalez was promoted,” she said. "Since last year it’s been the craziest situation. We lost about $500,000 due to the letters he sent to the SLA. I heard about this and I had no idea they were my neighbors. We talked and we had a lot of similarities.” She added that racism could be a reason for the club’s issues. “I’m really disappointed with the community because I feel Love & Lust is being called out because it’s an African American establishment,” she said. “The beer garden doesn’t get this. No other establishment does.” The crowd was outraged by the statement. “They don’t care about race,” said Valdes. “It’s about when you serve patrons booze to the point where they’re inebriated and send them out to the street." “Every business should be a good neighbor, but to suggest somehow that he’s legally responsible for five and 10 blocks down, he can’t be,” replied Sanders. “If we were such a problem, the majority would’ve heard of us prior to closing,” added Jairam. “Things have come out afterwards. I’m not here to argue or litigate. I just want to get back in business. Anyone in their heart knows we were never a problem to this community prior to these last 60 days.” The SLA will decide on whether to issue a liquor license to the new club.

Possible End in Sight: Work Finally Underway on Shore Road Ramp BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he ongoing saga of the repairs for the 97th Street ramp at Shore Road Park continues but with a hint of light at the end of the proverbial tunnel and a possible completion date in sight. After years of delays, the work is finally underway to repair the ramp to St. Patrick’s Field which offers the only nearby access to the park for sports teams, elderly individuals, baby carriages and the disabled. The city’s Parks Department recently promised City Councilmember Justin Brannan that a crew will be out there every day, except weekends, working until the ramp is complete. When the ramp partially collapsed in late spring, 2016, structural engineers from the Parks Department determined that it needed to be closed immediately for public safety. Furthermore, the new ramp had to comply with ADA standards, which made the design and engineering more complicated than originally planned. For some residents of the neighborhood, getting to Shore Road Park without the ramp has not been an easy task.

Former Bay Ridge Congressmember Guy Molinari dead BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

G

uy Molinari, a titan of New York Republican politics who served as Bay Ridge’s congressmember in the 1980s, died July 25. He was 89. Molinari, who had been ill for a number of years, died in NYU Medical Center in Manhattan. His daughter, former Congressmember Susan Molinari, and another former House member, Michael Grimm, were at his hospital bedside when he died, according to the Staten Island Advance. Molinari left a mark on Brooklyn and Staten Island that is still being felt today. In 1986, Molinari successfully pushed legislation through Congress that established a one-way toll system in the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. At the time, he argued that backed-up traffic in Staten Island caused major air pollution concerns for residents. New York City recognized his legendary status in 2005, when then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg named a Staten Island Ferry after him. Molinari was first elected to

CREATE YOUR OWN SB BURGER WITH ENDLESS TOPPINGS!

STANDARD BURGER GRAND OPENING & THE $1000 EATING CONTEST TAKES PLACE DURING SUMMER STROLL By John Alexander jalexander@brooklyneagle.com

One of the biggest events at last Friday night’s Summer Stroll along Third Ave. in Bay Ridge was Standard Burger’s grand opening ribboncutting ceremony and Burger Eating Contest. It seemed like most of the neighborhood was gathered in front of Standard Burger to watch the burger eating competition, which awarded a $1000 prize to the person who consumed the most burgers. Standard Burger co-owner Dimitrios Verteouris, who also founded Bay Ridge and Downtown Brooklyn’s popular Nature’s Grill, was thrilled with the turnout for the event. “It was a lot of fun,” he said. “The weather was phenomenal and we were very happy with the turnout. In fact, it was better than we ever imagined. I really didn’t expect that large of a crowd.” Verteouris said that the burger eating contest is just the first of its kind. “We’re looking to make it an annual event,” Verteouris said. “I think people like to watch these type of events. It’s intriguing to a lot of people when you have a cash prize, and especially when you have enthusiastic contestants, it makes it even more fun.”

In fact, people were clamoring around the contestants while taking pictures with their phones and recording the event. There were five contestants who each had 12 burgers placed in front of them. The goal was to eat as many burgers as they could in 10 minutes. There were two contestants who somehow managed to consume six burgers each, which required a coin toss to break the tie. Merchants of Third Avenue President Robert Howe flipped the coin and the winner was Ilya Kraytman. Attending the burger eating contest and ribbon-cutting ceremony were Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, state Sen. Marty Golden, City Councilmember Justin Brannan, New York Public Advocate Letitia James and representatives for Congressmember Dan Donovan and Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis. “We are extremely happy with the support we’ve received and we just hope we can keep the Bay Ridge residents happy for a very long time,” Verteouris added. “We’re here for the long term, we want to serve our community right and we just hope that we’re as well-received in the future as we were on that night.”

Sunset Park goes green with first ever Sixth Avenue Greenmarket BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

S

unset Park finally goes green. On Saturday, July 14, GrowNYC unveiled its newest Greenmarket, this time in Sunset Park at Sixth Avenue and 44th Street. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at which Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, members of the Friends of Sunset Park, representatives of Grow NYC, farmers and more were in attendance to celebrate the opening of the long awaited market that will provide fun, food-based activities in Spanish and English for children through the Farmers Markets for Kids  program, and where residents can mingle while procuring a variety of locally grown produce, eggs, orchard fruit, honey, breads and pastries. Menchaca was thrilled. “At a time when so many forces are working to tear communities apart, these Greenmarkets bring them together and strengthen them,” he said. “What makes Greenmarkets so impactful is that they not only create access to fresh, healthy and affordable food, but also provide educational programs for children to teach healthy lifestyles, and train local residents to grow their own food. A few of the participants at the Greenmarket are actually local farmers who were trained through GrowNYCs programs. I’ve already heard incredibly positive reactions from the community. My focus has always been on finding ways to create more spaces for the community to mingle and break bread together.” Maria Roca, founder of Friends of Sunset Park, had been advocating for a Greenmarket -- which she said was really needed in the area -- for over 20 years. “We have high rates of diabetes, heart disease, obesity, asthma,” she said. “If there’s a place that needs access to fresh food or food that’s organic as possible, it’s a neighborhood like Sunset Park.” Thanks in part to her advocacy, a Greenmarket opened on Fourth Avenue between 59 and 60th Streets in 2001. However, it wasn’t placed to serve the entire neighborhood. “Then we said, what about the northeast end of the neighborhood?” she recalled. “Because of the layout of the

neighborhood, it’s difficult to get to.” Nonetheless, said Roca, “There was pushback from people. But we persevered and never let go of the idea. Fast forward to 2017 and the energies began to come together. It wasn’t one person or the Friends of Sunset Park. It was an energy of people who know and talk to each other and are on same

page.” After the ribbon cutting, the Jazz Foundation performed for attendees, who showed up in droves. “Friends of Sunset Park is excited beyond words,” Roca added. “This has been on the list on what was needed and wanted in the neighborhood for everyone, regardless of

their demographic. And proof is the attendance on Saturday. Everyone was there shopping. Every face you can imagine. Every language spoken among the patrons. So far, it’s been a huge success and we’re looking forward to continued growth of the market and other activities around the market such as entertainment and education, so it is a great destination.” The list of farmers includes: Angel Family Farm Vegetables,from Orange County, N.Y.; Bakers Bounty Breads & Pastries from Union County, N.J.; Conuco Farms Vegetables from Ulster County, N.Y.; Evolutionary Organics Certified Naturally Grown Vegetables from Ulster County, N.Y.; Project Eats Vegetables from Kings County and New York County, N.Y.; Q Farms Pasture-Raised Meat and Poultry from Litchfield County, Conn.; R & R Produce LLC Vegetables from Orange County, N.Y.; and Toigo Orchards from Cumberland County, Penn. The Greenmarket will be open Saturdays, July 7 - November 17 from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. For more information, visit www.grownyc. org/6aveSunsetParkGreenmarket.

Council Vote Makes it Final: Boardwalk is Landmark BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

I

t was only a formality, but a vote taken by the City Council on July 18 sealed the deal for the Coney Island Boardwalk to become an official landmark. On Wednesday, July 19 the council voted to affirm the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation of the Coney Island Boardwalk, officially called the Riegelmann Boardwalk, as a scenic landmark. The council vote marked the final step in the designation process. The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to grant landmark status to the boardwalk on May 15, 95 years to the day after it opened. “This designation means that, no matter what, there will always be a Coney Island Boardwalk,” said

Councilmember Mark Treyger, who represents the area and who pushed for the 2.7 mile-long walkway to be designated as a landmark. “The Boardwalk is such a critical piece of our history because it is accessible to everyone. It’s where our children play, where our seniors socialize, where families relax or stay active together, and where countless New Yorkers and visitors come to enjoy the fresh air, the beautiful views and the thrills of the People’s Playground,” Treyger said. The Boardwalk stretches from Coney Island into Brighton Beach and is named in honor of Edward Riegelmann, who served as Brooklyn borough president from 1918 to 1924. “I am thrilled that this council has finally affirmed what Brooklynites know to be true, the Coney Island Boardwalk is a scenic landmark,”

ebrooklyn media/File photo

The City Council vote puts the final touch on the effort to gain landmark status for the iconic boardwalk.

said Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, whose district includes a portion of the historic walkway. “Since 1923, our Boardwalk has been a destination for millions of visitors from New York City and beyond.”

olice have apprehended two suspects in connection with a Bath Beach shooting that left a 66-year-old man dead in 2017.

On Friday, July 20, police arrested 27-year-old Derek Simpkins and 27-year-old Abasie Brabam on second degree murder charges in the murder of Robert Donofrio. The pair were also charged with second degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Donofrio, a Bath Beach resident and former NYPD civilian employee, was gunned down at approximately 6:39 p.m. on February 8, 2017 at his home on Bay Eighth Street between Benson and Bath Avenues. The suspects fled the scene in a 2015

Ford Mustang. Donofrio was rushed to Maimonides Medical Center where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Brabam, a Georgia resident, was also charged with second degree burglary.

Cops Busting Cyclists on Domino Park’s River Street WILLIAMSBURG — The recently opened Domino Park on the Williamsburg waterfront, part of Two Trees’ Domino mega-development, has many attractive features, but the access road adjacent to the park is reportedly creating problems for several bicyclists. River Street, which runs from North Third to South Fifth streets, is a one-way street with no bike lane, according to Gothamist. Not only that, but local police have been issuing tickets to bicyclists who were riding the wrong way. One cyclist whose run-in was caught on film told Gothamist that he was unaware that the road was a one-way thoroughfare. He also said that on his way out of the park, he saw two other cyclists getting tickets as well. “I think the officer recognized that this is not a clearly marked location, which is why so many cyclists are entering the park there, and he is using it to his advantage to hand out tickets,” he said. A spokesperson for the city Department of Transportation said River Street is a private street, and the developer is responsible for its configuration and circulation. A Two Trees spokesperson said in an email that “There’s always a learning curve with the opening of a brand new street, and we are working hand-in-hand with NYPD to educate drivers, pedestrians and cyclists about traffic flow and ensure that it is safe for everyone.”

Decrepit Former Precinct House Will Make Room for School in Sunset Park SUNSET PARK — The School Construction Authority has submitted an application to demolish the decrepit 19th century building that once housed the Sunset Park police precinct to make way for a new school – later clarifying that it will shore up some of the walls, which are slated to be preserved as part of the new structure. The SCA bought the castle-like precinct house at 4302 Fourth Ave., which has been vacant since 1970, from Yosef Streicher for $7.999 million in November, according to

Brownstoner. Because the site is listed on the National Register and the new school would use state funds, the state Historic Preservation Office needed to OK the plans. Last year, the two agencies reached a compromise and agreed that the main building’s street façade would be preserved, but the building’s former stable would be demolished. The building, formerly the 18th Precinct, was built in 1890-92. It was ravaged by fire in 1980 and has been decaying ever since, Brownstoner said.

W’burg Chef to Open New Izakaya-Style Restaurant BUSHWICK — Chef Joaquin “Quino” Baca of the recently closed Williamsburg favorite Brooklyn Star plans to go back to his roots with a new restaurant at the Bushwick-Ridgewood border that will focus on izakaya-style (meaning Japanese gastropub-style) cooking. Baca will soon open Teo, a 45-seat restaurant at 321 Starr St. between St. Nicholas and Cypress avenues, featuring “a few noodle dishes, lots of meat skewers and a few composed plates,” according to Eater New York. The chef worked at Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssam Bar and Ko before opening Brooklyn Star with a partner. “I certainly not doing anything authentically Japanese. It’s very social, it’s fun, it’s boozy,” Baca told Eater. Teo is expected to open next month.

Party Boat Accidentally Spews Raw Sewage into Waters off Red Hook RED HOOK — Residents of Red Hook and nearby areas were horrified after learning that workers servicing the “party yacht” Avalon accidentally spilled about 500 gallons of raw sewage into the Atlantic Basin on Sunday. The mishap disgorged an amount of human waste equal to more than 300 flushes of a toilet, according to the New York Post. Red Hook resident Kathleen Murphy told the Post that “Red Hook is big on fish, and what do you think the fish will do if they see waste in the area? Attempt to eat it. Then we get sick from the poisoned fish.” The BoatUS Foundation says it’s illegal to discharge untreated sewage on inland waters or within 3 miles from shore. Both the Coast Guard and the state Department of Environmental Conservation responded to the accident. The 80-foot boat is featured on the Prestige Yacht Charters web site, but company president David Hackert told the Post that his firm “does not own or operate the boat” and “had nothing to do with the incident.”

Greenpoint Ferry Pier Closed Due to ‘Unexpected’ Problems GREENPOINT — The city’s NYC Ferry service stopped running to Greenpoint last Thursday because of damage to its India Street Pier, which partially collapsed in 2014. City Economic Development Corporation officials sent out an alert that service to the pier was suspended until further notice because of “unexpected landing maintenance,” according to the New York Post. They wouldn’t reveal what was wrong with the pier

or say how long repairs would take, the Post said. The pier’s gangway collapsed during a snowstorm in February 2014, just moments after passengers were walking on it. Documents reportedly showed that Billybey, a New Jersey-based company that operated the cross-East River ferries at the time in conjunction with NY Waterway, hadn’t inspected those portions of the pier that are underwater.

Artists Fills Potholes With Mosaics, But DOT Calls Them a Safety Hazard BOROUGHWIDE — A Chicago-based artist recently filled several potholes in Manhattan and Brooklyn with NYC-themed mosaics, but the city Department of Transportation doesn’t exactly think this is a good idea, according to PIX11. Jim Bachor, who has installed more than 70 potholes with mosaic art in various cities since 2013, insists his creations are safe. However, the DOT believes that they are a hazard because drivers may

become distracted by the art, PIX11 said. The artworks in question, which make up a series called “Vermin of New York,” depict a rat, a pigeon, a cockroach, Donald Trump and a bouquet of flowers. To create his mosaics, Bachor spends eight to 10 hours making them in a studio. He then fills the pothole with concrete, installs the art, sets up traffic cones and a tarp, and finally comes back eight hours later to do a final cleaning.

Number of Filings for New Condos In B’klyn is Highest Since Recession BOROUGHWIDE — Plans for 547 new condo units in Brooklyn were filed in Brooklyn in June, making the first half of this year exceed any full year since the 2008 recession. According to The Real Deal, these numbers were largely driven by large-scale condo projects, including Hope Street Capital’s 165-unit warehouse conversion at 98 Front St. in DUMBO and CM Group and LIVWRK’s 163-unit partnership at 111 Montgomery St. in Crown Heights. The largest other development in the group was Guy Iber’s 32-unit development at 1325 Herkimer St. in Ocean Hill. “In another post-recession first, the number of new 100-plus-unit condo filings in Brooklyn was tied with that of Manhattan for the second straight quarter,” The Real Deal said.

Charmaine Johnson Takes the Reigns 0f the Court Internship Program By Rob Abruzzese Brooklyn Record

The late Izetta Johnson was a court employee for roughly three decades who built a legacy when she started an internship program in the Brooklyn court system in 1989 that remains unrivaled in the other boroughs of New York City. Today, Charmaine Johnson (no relation) is building her own legacy as she has taken the reigns of that internship program from Izetta and it has continued to flourish. “I find this job extremely rewarding because I have touched so many lives and they have touched my life as well,” Johnson said. “They affect you and they show you a different side of how people are.”

Charmaine Johnson (standing left next to Court Officer Sgt. Erica Mercado and Hon. Deborah Dowling at Bushwick High School on May 3, 2018) often visits schools in New York City to tell students about internship and job opportunities within the courts. She always brings other court employees with her so that the kids can see people like them working in the court. “Some of the students have a negative connotation about the courts and when they see someone who looks just like them working for the courts, their faces light up,” Johnson said.

Johnson, one of six siblings, moved to the U.S. from Jamaica when she was 10 years old and eventually attended William H. Maxwell High School, an all-girls school at the time in East New York. After high school, Johnson attended the Borough of Manhattan Community College and the College of New Rochelle. After college, Johnson enrolled in a stenotype academy that would have set her up to be a court reporter. However, she became pregnant and dropped out of the program. Eventually, she heard about an exam for law stenographers, took it and began working for Justice Salvatore T. DeMatteo in Brooklyn Supreme Court. When Justice DeMatteo retired, Johnson bounced around the court system working for various judges before she went to work for the Law Department. She didn’t know Izetta Johnson at the time except through the summer internship program because she had requested interns each year. When Izetta retired, though, Charmaine applied for her job. “I immediately had such a great respect for Izetta even though I never worked alongside her because I had no idea what went into this program and how much you give up of yourself,” Johnson said. “During the summer, I end up coming in early nearly every day and leaving late. But I love what I do. Seeing the joy the students get from it makes it a cake walk.” Johnson is no mere supervisor and often explains her job description as similar to a psychologist, mom and disciplinarian. She is responsible for approximately 100 students each year: between 70 and 80 in the Student Employment and Internship Program, more from a program called Work, Learn and Grow during the fall and spring along with various other student volunteers as well. The students come from four boroughs, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan, and range in age from as young as 14 to college students. They are placed in each of Brooklyn’s courthouses and perform just about every job aside from judge though they do assist

judges and court officers. The program not only introduces the students to the many different jobs in the court, but through programs Johnson sets up, it teaches them a lot of valuable life skills as well. This month they will take a resume class, a financial literacy class, and will even go to an anti-bullying workshop. The final week of the internship is dubbed competition week and includes best dressed, best interview skills and a mock trial competition. Some of the students will even participate in an annual basketball game against the court officers at McLaughlin Park in Downtown Brooklyn. Getting the kids through the programs usually takes extra effort from Johnson. She keeps her office door open and invites any of them to come in and talk to her. She also puts it on herself to make sure that they are all fed when they come to work and has even paid for some of their MetroCards to get them to work. “I form a close bond with them and they end up sending me pictures of them,” Johnson said. “It’s not like they just pass through, no. This is hands-on stuff.” One student who went through the program, Jonathan Forsythe, Johnson is particularly proud of because he struggled to adapt early on, but eventually he became one of her better interns. “I’m so proud of him because when he first came here, he was lost,” Johnson said. “Now he’s getting ready to graduate from ASACollege this month. He sent me a ticket to the graduation at Madison Square Garden later this month, and I have to make sure that I’m going to go because he told me that his grandmother might not be able to make it. I can’t see the potential that some of these kids have and not support them.” While a lot of credit is given to Johnson for her work in the program by the judges and other court staffers, she points out that the programs would not be possible if not for the work of Izetta Johnson; the judges of the courthouse, especially administrative Judges Hon. Matthew D’Emic and Hon. Lawrence Knipel; and Chief Clerks Daniel Alessandrino and Charles Small.

Take a Look at Bay Ridge’s Tucked-Away Treasures By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Short streets, long on charm. Bay Ridge is full of them. The southwest Brooklyn shoreline neighborhood has picturesque singleblock streets and privately owned cul-de-sacs, some of which are pedes-

trian pathways rather than roads for cars. Stroll with us in search of these tucked-away treasures, which are sprinkled throughout Bay Ridge from Cannonball Park by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Owl's Head Park at the neighborhood's north end.

See next page.

Come See Lafayette Walk in Bay Ridge, Where Brooklyn Dodgers Pitcher Carl Erskine Lived By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Back when the Dodgers were still here in Brooklyn, the team’s beloved pitcher, Carl Erskine, lived in Bay Ridge. He and his family rented a rowhouse on Lafayette Walk during baseball seasons. In a book by Ed Shakespeare called “When Baseball Returned to Brooklyn,” Erskine reminisced that Bay Ridge “was like a small town” in his ball-playing days. “The neighbors were all great and took care of my family,” Erskine recalled. Lafayette Walk is a pedestrian-only street that’s less than a block long. Its entrance is on the 94th Street block

between Third and Fourth avenues — and it runs parallel to pedestrian-only Hamilton Walk. This time of year Lafayette Walk looks especially charming, with flowers blooming in residents’ gardens and umbrellas unfurled over patio tables. Erskine spent his entire Major League Baseball career with the Dodgers, mostly in Brooklyn and then briefly in Los Angeles after the team’s move to California. He retired from the Dodgers in 1959. Erskine pitched in the World Series in years that the Dodgers lost to the New York Yankees. And he started the fourth game of the 1955 World Series, which of course is the World Series the Brooklyn Dodgers won.

The legendary Brooklyn Dodgers shortstop and team captain’s home was on this Did you know Pee Wee Reese and his tiny Bay Ridge street, his 1999 New York family lived on Barwell Terrace? Times obituary says. This pedestrian-only cul-de-sac is at the top of a flight of stairs at the edge of the sidewalk on 97th Street. You need only stand on the sidewalk to see the terrace is a beautiful, tranquil place. The rowhouses on Barwell Terrace were built in the 1920s. A Brooklyn Daily Eagle advertisement of that era describes them as “Old English Type One Family Brick Homes With Garage.” A statue at the Brooklyn Cyclones’ — Continued from page 18INB — MCU Park in Coney Island memorializes a Baseball fans nicknamed him key moment in Reese’s storied career — “Oisk,” which is how the first syllable when he put his arm around teammate Jackie of his surname is pronounced with an Robinson, the first African-American to play Major League Baseball. old-time Brooklyn accent.

• The other short street we want to mention is Wogan Terrace. It’s a cul-desac with a paved street wide enough to park cars on both sides of it. Its entrance is on the 94th Street block between Fifth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway. A word of caution: You can park on Wogan Terrace only if you’re a resident. If you’re not, your car will get towed. It’s a private street. The Tudor-style rowhouses on this terrace are eye-pleasers with slate roofs. To give you an idea of what these homes go for, 9404 Wogan Terrace sold for $795,000 in early July, Finance Department records indicate. In November, 9409 Wogan Terrace sold for $760,000, Finance Department records show. The records also indicate that 9417 Wogan Terrace sold for $720,000 in 2016. The seller had bought the house for $575,000 in 2012.

Do You Know the Way to Harbor Court?

There are three other tiny streets nearby that we want to show you. * Short but sweet. That’s 98th Street. It’s just a block long. It starts at Marine Avenue and dead-ends just short of Shore Road. Detached houses with flowery gardens and finely landscaped front yards charm the eye on 98th Street. It’s so quiet and peaceful. As an indication of what the houses are worth, 160 98th St. sold for $1.05 million in February, city Finance Department records show. * Part-way down the block on 98th Street, there’s a perpendicular mini-street called Harbor Court, which runs to 99th Street. On Harbor Court, you’ll see garages and the sides of houses whose front doors are on 98th Street or 99th Street.

Welcome to Bay Ridge's Barwell Terrace, which has a sidewalk running down the center of it instead of a street.

Brooklyn Dodgers shortstop Pee Wee Reese, second from left in this 1947 photo, lived in Bay Ridge. Other starting infielders that year were (from right) Jackie Robinson, Ed Stanky and AP Photo John Jorgensen. * If you go to Cannonball Park, as everybody in Bay Ridge calls John Paul Jones Park, you can find Jackson Court. It’s a private cul-de-sac whose entrance is on 101st Street between Fourth Avenue and Fort Hamilton Parkway, right across from the park. To give you an idea of what houses are worth on Jackson Court, the two-story, single-family home at 5 Jackson Court sold for $917,000 in October 2016, Finance Department records indicate. Also, 1 Jackson Court sold for $885,000 in October 2015, Finance Department records show. The seller had purchased the house for $490,000 in 2004.

Free Consultation at Our Funeral Home RYAN, Karen F. (nee Freeman), died July 22, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Brooklyn on March 3, 1953, to the late Edward and Florence Freeman. Mrs. Ryan was also pre-deceased by her beloved husband, Gerald and is survived by her loving son, Gerald. She had five beloved siblings: sisters Deborah Freeman Kelly (and late husband Robert) and Elaine Freeman, and her late brothers Edward, Bruce and Brian Freeman. In addition to Deborah and Elaine, she is also survived by many adored nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. Karen was known for her contagious smile and warm heart. She was a member of the American Legion and a volunteer at the V.A. Hospital, where she later worked for many years. She was a die-hard Yankees fan. She will be sadly missed by her family and all she touched. All services entrusted to Clavin Funeral Home. Mass of Christian Burial Friday, July 27 at 8:45 a.m. at Saint Anselm R.C Church.

MARTIN, Ruth V. (nee Grady) - On July 13, 2018. For my mother, my sisters and me, Ruth was always there for us. So many little things come to mind. Taking the three of us to see “Mary Poppins,” my first movie. The porcelain doll she brought back for me from Germany. The vests she crocheted for my sisters and me. Her laugh. How she seemed to be from another era—maybe Victorian— and blushed and got flustered so easily.

Mostly I remember her with Bob, and how much they loved each other. We spent every holiday, and lots of just plain old days, with them. So many parties we had at their apartment—so many Christmas gifts we opened there, so many birthday cards we read. To know Ruth was to want to know her forever. Her closest friends, Aurora and Peggy, she had known since girlhood. But she made new friends just as easily. I remember once, after she was hospitalized for a brief procedure, the woman she shared a room with for, like, two days became a friend for life. She and Bob loved to be near the

water, and spent many vacations in Montauk, where she’d also gone with her girlfriends. Later, for years, they loved spending time at my sister Trish’s house there. Ruth was absolutely crazy for old movies—of course, they weren’t old when she was growing up and TCM was always on at her house, unless she was watching her stories or Bob was watching golf. When she was a teenager, she and her girlfriends went to see Frank Sinatra—who she also loved all her life—at the Paramount in Brooklyn, and then, after he emerged from the stage door, they followed him down the street to the barber shop and watched him get his haircut. And according to Ruth, “He never knew we were there.” Uh-huh. Because you can just imagine how subtle they were…Even after losing most of her memory, she loved old movies, especially musicals. One day, I went

by for a visit, and “Meet Me in St. Louis,” with Judy Garland, was on. Since I’m also crazy for old movies, I of course sang along with “Clang Clang Clang Went the Trolley…” and Ruth smiled and tapped her knees and swayed back and forth. It was clear that day that even after her illness had stolen so much from her, that dreamy teenage girl, who’d swooned over Sinatra and cast herself in her imagination in every musical she ever saw, was still there. And now the illness has lost its grip, and she is at peace. Mass of Christian Burial Our Lady of Angels R.C. Church. All services entrusted to Clavin Funeral Home.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Four Brooklyn Churches Receive Sacred Sites Grants Summer Sings at Grace Church Beckon Hymn-Lovers

How many readers have come across the hymn considered the cure for those with phone trouble? Titled “The Royal Telephone,” this hymn, assuring the faithful that there’s a steady lifeline to God, has become a perennial favorite at the Grace Church Summer Sings, which start on August 7. The Summer Sings, held on Tuesdays in August, provide the chance to sing and learn more about beloved hymns, and to explore some of the humorous aspects of hymnody. Each week will feature a presentation from clergy and musicians. The Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, rector of Grace Church, will give the first presentation, on August 7. Pam McAllister, director of music at the Park Slope United Methodist Church, presents on August 14. Grace Church’s organist-choirmaster Paul Richard Olson gives his talk on August 21; and longtime Grace chorister and hymnologist Patricia Woodard will give her presentation on August 28. The Summer Sings run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the air-conditioned McKittrick Choir Room. All are welcome.

Film Draws Its Inspiration From the Poetry of Orphans St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church will host a free screening of “Voices Beyond the Wall: Twelve Love Poems from the Murder Capital of the World.” “Voices Beyond the Wall” (director Brad Coley and executive producer James Franco) is inspired by the writings of girls living at Our Little Roses, an Episcopal orphanage in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Fr. Spencer Reece, an Episcopal priest and award-winning poet, spent two years at Our Little Roses helping residents find their voices through poetry, to help heal the trauma of their pasts and prepare to transition to an uncertain future beyond the walls of the orphanage. He collaborated with Luis J. Rodriguez to edit and publish the girls’ poems in a volume titled, “Counting Time Like People Count Stars” (copyright 2017 by Northwestern University Press). Fr. Reece will preach at the 11:15 a.m. Holy Eucharist at St. Ann’s on Sunday, August 5, and will be present for the screening, which begins at 1:30 p.m.

By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor

The majestic houses of worship throughout Brooklyn and all of New York State have strong histories of the people who built their faith and lives here. But with many of them approaching the bicentennial mark—and some much older—these buildings need repair. The New York Landmarks Conservancy has led the effort to preserve and protect New York City’s architectural legacy for 45 years. The Conservancy and its Sacred Sites program have saved more than 1,000 buildings, protecting New York’s distinctive architectural heritage. Four Brooklyn churches are among those awarded funding in the latest set of Sacred Sites Grants totaling $226,000 to historic religious properties throughout the state. The Bridge Street African Wesleyan Methodist Episcopal Church was awarded a $25,000 grant to help fund window restoration. The church was the first Methodist church with an African-American congregation in Brooklyn and was a participant in the underground railroad during the Civil War. Bridge Street AWME Church has a significant community presence with a wide range of social and cultural programs reaching over 13,000 people a year. The Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Flatbush, founded in 1654, received a $25,000 grant to help finance new roofs, steeple and gutter replacement, masonry work and restoration to the sanctuary exterior. The building, completed in 1798, is the third church to occupy the site. The Federal style building, distinguished by its elegant clock tower and steeple, is considered a rare example of New York City’s 18th-century architecture. It serves about 3,000 people in this West Indian neighborhood through a wide range of community activities. Flatbush-Tompkins Congregational Church in Ditmas Park received a $10,000 grant towards funding window restoration in the sanctuary. The building is considered to be the finest Colonial Revival style church in New York City and serves about 900 people a year through community programs. First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn Heights was awarded a $10,000 grant towards funding exterior accessibility and entryway restoration. Constructed from 1842-1844, its church was inspired by the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge, England. First Unitarian Church reaches about 7,000 people a year through community activities. Since its founding in 1986, the Conservancy’s Sacred Sites program has assisted more than 750 congregations across New York State with grants totaling over $12 million. “Religious buildings are key to a community’s history and sense of place,” said Peg Breen, President, The New York Landmarks Conservancy, “and many offer vital cultural and social service programs. Preserving them benefits us all.”

ath and art have joined forces at Sunset Park’s Industry City. The massive waterfront complex was the site of a collaboration between the National Museum of Mathematics (MoMath) and Industry’s City new exhibit Escher: The Exhibition and Experience. The space features over 200 works by the iconic Dutch artist. According to MoMath Director Cindy Lawrence, the collaboration came about after Johanna Guttman of Arthemisia, the Italian company that produced the exhibition, reached out to her. “Escher is a really unique artist in that he wasn’t a mathematician and yet a lot of his artwork conveys some deep mathematical topics and ideas,” Lawrence said. “Symmetry, self-repetition and all kinds of geometric shapes, like lots of tessellations and tiling, are embedded into his artwork. People who like his art are drawn to learning about math. People who like math and may not be big art fans are drawn into learning about his artistry. “So to me this is very aligned with what MoMath is trying to do, which is show people that math isn’t the same as One arithmetic,” she said. “It’s not just a bunch of steps. It’s actually a cultural endeavor that relates to different areas that we see around us in the world. Math can be fun, exploratory, creative. At its heart, I believe math is an aesthetic endeavor.” Elucidating the exhibition earlier this month was M.C. Escher expert, Dave Masunaga -- a presidential teaching award winner in Hawaii who has a long-standing relationship with MoMath, the only museum of math in all of North America and

of Escher’s creations. the only hands-on science center in Manhattan -- who led two tours of the exhibition, at 34 34th Street, Building 6 on Friday, July 13. “This is one of the largest exhibits on the works of M.C. Escher in the U.S.,” he said. “It’s an extraordinary experience for those who come to see the original works as Escher produced them. These are not reproductions. They are the real thing and and it’s eye-opening not only to see them in scale but to see the amount of detail that went into producing each one.”

“Escher is like an intersection of math and science,” added Guttmann. “It’s like all STEM subjects and STEAM because it has the arts. This is a very exciting collaboration for us. We’re very excited to have MoMath doing this lecture series together. Having Dave here was a great treat. Everyone sees that art and math can be fun together. What is unique about this exhibition is that it’s very interactive and immersive. There are a lot of way to see the math and see the abstract concepts.” “We were able to show participants at least an inkling of the genius of Escher,” Guttmann went on. “It engages everyone of all ages.” Attendees had a great time. “It’s my first trip to Industry City. I am really impressed with the space,” said Barbara Cantz, who came from Long Island to see the exhibits. “I’ve been a follower of graphic art my whole life and to see these in person is spectacular. The detail is phenomenal.” The exhibit opened in June and is expected to be at IC until February.

Sunset Park Students Build Boat For Oyster Restoration BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

group of young girls in their school t-shirts, one donning a classic captain’s hat, painted the finishing touches on their boat project on Wednesday, July 18. They concentrated and worked in unison to make the boat seaworthy. The girls measured, sawed, shaped, fastened and painted the wood under the instruction of their teachers. The elementary and middle schoolers from Sunset Park Prep, P.S. 104, Dewey Midd le School, P.S. 88, P.S. 131, P.S. 51 and Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies hand-built the 14-foot, wooden boat through a 12-week afterschool program, called the Brooklyn Oyster

The students working on the dory. Dory Program. The dory, a flat-bottomed boat with high flaring sides and a deep V-shaped body, will be unveiled and launched on Saturday,

August 4, in the lagoon at Bush Terminal Piers Park at the end of 43rd Street. In the process of building the dory, students learn the role of oysters in the New York Harbor ecosystem, as well as woodworking skills, marine biology and harbor history.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration refers to oysters as “filter feeders” that play an important role in improving the quality of water and forming a reef with their shells. Oysters haven’t been plentiful in New York Harbor since the 1800s due to pollution and overharvesting, according to the New York Times. The nautical school program as a whole is a new collaboration between the Billion Oyster Project (BOP), New York Harbor School, Sunset Spark, Brooklyn Boatworks and Industry City. BOP’s goal is to restore a sustainable oyster population to the harbor. “The idea was to create a collaborative, hands-on project that would engage young people with the harbor and its ecosystem, and also result in something tangible that the community could use to access the water,” said BOP Project Coordinator Rob Buchanan. The upcoming unveiling and boat launch will be followed by a community rowing event from 3 to 6 p.m. Wooden dories, canoes and kayaks will be available for free public use. Ships Ahoy!

Pitchers give Cyclones an edge in the field BY JIM DOLAN

A

fter winning two out of three from the Tri-City Valleycats in Troy, the Cyclones returned home on the weekend to MCU Park to win another two-of-threegame series against Lowell to snap the Spinners’ record-setting 11-game winning streak. In the last game of the Lowell series, the Cyclones’ top-performing pitcher Jaison Vilera (4-1) earned his third consecutive win and fourth win of the season by throwing 5-2/3 innings, allowing five hits and no runs with three walks and five strikeouts for a 4-0 Brooklyn win. After his second win in Aberdeen (seven innings, three hits, no runs, one walk and nine strikeouts), Vilera pitched a nearly a carbon copy game (seven innings, two hits, no runs, one walk and nine strikeouts) for his third win against the Valleycats in Troy. Thus far this season, Vilera is among the top five pitchers in the New York Penn League with four wins, 48 strikeouts and an ERA of 0.92.

Photo by Jim Dolan

Jaison Vilera (#39) is the Cyclones’ top pitcher thus far this season. Vilera (4-1) is joined by fellow pitchers, Ryan McAuliffe (#22) from St. John’s University and Christian James (#47), who was Brooklyn’s 2018 opening day pitcher. Providing insight into Vilera’s success, second year Cyclones Pitching Coach and former New York Met Royce Ring explained that the third year minor league pitcher from Venezuela was successful with Port St. Lucie’s Gulf Coast team last season and is now tweaking his game while continuing to work hard between starts.

Ring described Vilera’s progress by stating, “He’s always been a fastball-changeup guy who’s now finding out that his breaking ball is breaking much sharper now. He’s found a difference in his game by finding consistency with his breaking ball. He now has control over his delivery and doesn’t rush the game.”

Describing what the opposition faces, Ring stated, “It looks like his pitches are coming straight out of a tunnel until they get to the plate. Fastball, changeup and slider all look the same until they get to the batter’s point of contact.” For the “veteran” hurlers like 20-year-old Vilera, young pitchers who are either in their second or third year of the Mets’ farm system, Ring’s job is to teach them the nuances of the game and how to pitch against the elements. “For example it’s understanding that if the wind is blowing in, you can go inside on lefties; and also knowing that if the wind changes from one inning to another how this will affect the game,” he explained. “They’re all here because they have the ability; it’s about shaping their repertoire,” said the Mets’ fourth year minor league pitching coach. With the conclusion of week six in the New York Penn League, the 2016 Cyclones are in second place, 3.5 games behind the 23-12 first place Hudson Valley Renegades in the McNamara Division.

Excitable Book: Author James Campion Delves into the Life and Songs of Warren Zevon BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

J

ames Campion, a noted music journalist who grew up in the Bronx, admitted that after a writing hiatus it was a girl he was dating in Bay Ridge that inspired him to return to his craft. As a result of his rekindled romance with writing, he was able to author a number of music-related projects including his engaging and informative new book about the late singer-songwriter Warren Zevon, “Accidentally Like a Martyr-The Tortured Art of Warren Zevon.” The author interviewed those closest to Zevon, who died in 2003 at the age of 56 after a year-long bout with lung cancer, including songwriters, producers and family members, in order to examine his life through the songs he wrote. In so doing, Campion broke down Zevon’s ebrooklyn media/Photo by John Alexander life into 13 insightful essays that Author James Campion not only recall the artist’s life story (right) with Barry Geller but also shed valuable new light on performing Warren the songs, which ultimately are his Zevon songs at book signing. greatest legacy. He took the time to answer some questions before a book signing at — who was her former lover and wrote many songs that the BookMark Shoppe. Home Reporter: What made you she recorded — for the book, want to write a book about Warren he said that Linda could see the Zevon? beauty and the core of a song Campion: Well, the short answer is and that’s what Warren gave that there was really nothing written you when he wrote songs. about him in this way. I interviewed He didn’t always perform Crystal Zevon, his ex-wife who wrote them that way, but when you the book “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead” hear her do “Carmelita” or about Zevon in 2007. It’s a great book “Mohammad’s Radio,” you but she doesn’t really break the songs realize how she brought his down because it’s a full biography. work into the mainstream and I really didn’t want to write a biog- she genuinely loved his work. raphy, I wanted to write essays that Home Reporter: Would you say revolve around his songs. I started that “Werewolves of London” is with one about my favorite Warren Zevon’s most famous song? Zevon song, “Desperados Under Campion: It’s by far his most the Eaves.” It was so much fun that I famous song. Not everyone knows pitched it to my publisher, and they who Warren Zevon is but everyone liked the idea and said go and do a knows “Werewolves of London.” I couple more, and by the time I did I often say that Warren Zevon was realized it would be my next project. popular for eight months in 1978. Home Reporter: How big a part do Home Reporter: Tell me about the you think Linda Ronstadt played in friendship between Zevon and Bruce Zevon’s success? Springsteen. Campion: She played a very big Campion: Springsteen’s manager part.

saw Warren play for the first time he ended up in the limo with the two of them and he watched them form this bond. They talked until three in the morning. He said that Warren was three sheets as he normally was and he didn’t think Bruce drank a thing, but there was something about that connection. There was a deep love and respect that Bruce had for Warren’s work and the fact that Warren wasn’t as big as him. He really bled for him and wanted him to be bigger. And there

might have been a part of Warren that envied Bruce for his success. You know Bruce broke from his tour in 2002 and cancelled his Christmas break to go and spend a week with Warren at the end. He really loved him very much. Home Reporter: Zevon enjoyed a close friendship with David Letterman. Is it true that “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” is one of Letterman’s favorite songs? Campion: Yes, that was the last song Warren played in public live on the David Letterman Show. It was really emotional when Warren gave Dave his guitar and said, ‘please take care of it for me.’ Warren always said that ‘David Letterman is the best friend my music ever had.’ No one [else] ever had him on, but Letterman really loved him. Home Reporter: Zevon fought addiction most of his life but was able to keep rebounding and recording exceptional albums. Was that because he was driven by his art? Campion: Yes, redemption is the key here. Warren used to joke, ‘I have to reinvent myself every seven years.’ Warren had many situations where he easily could have died. And he was gone from the music business many times but he kept getting pulled back. He never, ever abandoned his art. Home Reporter: Like Johnny Cash with the song “Hurt,” Zevon recorded the song “Keep Me in Your Heart” in the face of impending death. Campion: Warren was writing about death as he was facing it. He wrote songs about dying as he was dying. That’s why I called the book “The Tortured Art of Warren Zevon.” Because life is the art itself. Home Reporter: What would you like readers to take away from your book? Campion: My whole goal with this book is to shine a light on Warren Zevon. It’s kind of a crusade for me to get more people, another generation to listen to his songs and just to get people to understand how truly great this guy was. Writing this book was one of the most difficult yet rewarding experiences of my life.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Merchants of Third Ave. to Host 25th Annual Pioneers Reception Oct. 22 at the Bay Ridge Manor Committee Reveals 2 Members of 2018 Pioneer Class Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe and Pioneer Committee CoChair Lori Pedone have disclosed the names of two distinguished Brooklynites who will be singled out for special honors when the Merchants hold their 25th Annual Pioneers Reception at the Bay Ridge Manor on Oct. 22. “Normally, we name all of the new Pioneers at once, but this year we decided to give more of an individual spotlight to each of these nominees who have done so much for our community and borough,” Pedone said. With that, Howe pulled an imaginary envelope, opened it and proclaimed, “The first two 2018 Pioneers are Rick Russo, acting president of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce (BCC), and Louis Peters, a highly respected business leader on Fifth Avenue.” Peters, a life/health insurance specialist and founder-owner of AMP Insurance Brokerage, has a long and laudable record of coaching young kids. Back in 1989, he managed a 68th Precinct Youth Council team that went

to the World Series in its age division. He’s shared his skills with a number of other organizations, including the Colonial Club, the Bayfort Benevolent Association, the Knights of Columbus Thomas Dongan Council and the AARP Bay Ridge Chapter, of which he is a board member.

Howe Stresses That Merchants Group Relies On Volunteers, Members “Because we are a totally volunteer organization, we rely on the goodwill and cooperation of our members and our broader community to accomplish our busy agenda, which is probably the most ambitious of any business/civic organization in the city,” Howe said. “Our very popular Summer Stroll on 3rd — now in its seventh year — brings thousands of walkers and strollers out on Third Avenue in July and August and, while we get seed money from the city as part of the NYC Weekend Walks program, our volunteers — led by Ilene Sacco — devote thousands of hours

yearly to what has become a complex, though very rewarding, endeavor.” Howe further explained, “Our Pioneers program is twofold — it recognizes those who have served long and well on Third Avenue, and also those with broader responsibilities, such as our new nominee Rick Russo, who is regarded as acting BCC president. He’s done this so often and so well that it’s hard to believe he’s ‘acting.’” Russo heads a senior management team at BCC that includes Vice President Jeanette Nigro, a specialist in

government and public affairs; and Vice President Dean Mohs, a specialist in innovative insurance and health care services for members. Pedone further clarified, “We have two categories of Pioneers — those who are strictly Third Avenue [some of whom we will be announcing next week] and those from the community, like Louis Peters, as well as the borough and beyond!” Serving on the Pioneer Committee as well are Merchants of Third Avenue CoTreasurer Brian Chin, Joann Monaco and Marc Hibsher.

Burger Eating Contest Sets New ‘Standard’ for Summer Stroll Fun

What do you do when a burger eating contest ends in a tie with $1,000 on the line? You flip a coin! And who do you trust to make sure it’s a fair flip? Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe, of course. The Third Avenue leader was called into action on Friday night at the Summer Stroll on 3rd when Standard Burger’s grand opening burger eating contest ended with two contestants tied at six burgers consumed apiece. After the flip, Howe pronounced Ilya Kraytman the winner (far right). Remember, there is no Stroll this week, but that doesn’t mean you should stop sharing your photos from the last two events using the hashtag #summerstrollon3rd on the Merchants’ various social media channels: @summerstrollon3rd on Facebook and Instagram, and @SummerStroll3rd on Twitter. They will be liked and shared, and you may even win a prize — especially if you share your best selfie and use the hashtag #SummerStrollSelfie! ebrooklyn media/photos by Chuck Otey

It was ‘Domino Day’ in Sunset Park as the 72nd Precinct hosted its first annual tournament for children (and adults) on Saturday, July 7. Held outside the precinct, 830 Fourth Avenue, the fun-filled day that included a barbecue and drinks was sponsored by Cardona Tax and D & G Tax and Business Services. Several youngsters from the Explorers program took place in the competitive but friendly tournament. “It went great. The Explorers played with the police officers and we had neighborhood kids come over and they played as well,” said Deputy Inspector and Commanding Officer of the 72nd Precinct Emmanuel Gonzalez. “We had a barbecue right in front of the precinct. The kids were walking in and out of the precinct. It really sent a message that we are here for them. The precinct is part of the community and they can come to the precinct with their needs.” “We wanted to bring it to the youth,” added Police Officer Gerber Fernandez. “My concern was maybe the community doesn’t know how to play. Although some of them didn’t know, they were willing to learn, and take direction from the CO and from us. They had fun. We had food for everyone. Some of the older generation stopped by and

I put out eight tables thinking that would be enough. I needed more.” Many businesspeople also stopped by, wanting to donate. “They were so impressed, they wanted to give donations,” Cardona added. “When I do an event I don’t collect funds. I don’t find it proper. I avoided that. [The owner of] a local bakery brought his sandwiches and cupcakes, no charge. Someone came with cases of water. It’s good for the police and kids get to know each other. I would do it again.” Each kid that participated was given a 72nd Precinct medallion. “It strengthens the relationship between the community and us. We want the community to know that we can have fun as well,” said Fernandez. “It was also a great recruitment for the Explorers,” added Gonzalez. “Many of them aspire to be police officers, but you don’t need to have that desire, just a desire to interact and participate Community residents young and old joined with cops at the 72nd Precinct for with the community and help it.

Brooklyn Tech student accepted into Yale, Milken Scholars Program

Karen Li. BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

he sky is the limit for a recent Brooklyn Technical High School graduate. Sheepshead Bay resident Karen Li has accomplished an impressive amount in her life and she has just graduated high school. From community service to raising awareness about important topics, she’s well on her way to long-term success. She recently got accepted into the 2018 Milken Scholars Program which will award her a $10,000 scholarship and provide a lifelong mentor and support system for career-related counseling. “There are so many amazing scholars,” said Li. “They have a lot of connections and they just help the newer Milken scholars have more opportunities to talk to people in fields they’re interested in. I was accepted into the program last month and I have already received so many emails from people who want to speak about my career pathway and finances so I’m already so grateful to be in this program.” However, the process wasn’t easy. Li was nominated by the scholarship director at Brooklyn Tech. This past

January, she submitted an application, wrote an essay and answered short answer questions. Then, in May, she was informed that she was one of 15 students selected for an interview. “I was one of six people finally chosen for this amazing program and scholarship,” Li recounted. “I was so happy. When I found out I had been accepted into this program, I just couldn’t believe it. My family doesn’t have to stress about tuition money.” Because Li was also accepted into Yale on a scholarship thanks to becoming a QuestBridge National College Match finalist, she plans to use the money to pay for graduate school. Li was excited to get into the Ivy League school and get an academic scholarship in the process. “I remember finding out I got in and being in disbelief,” she said. “I knew that I had a chance but I just broke down crying in front of everybody. Yale was my first choice. They have an amazing political science and global affairs program and that’s what I want to study when I go to college. The community seems amazing and it’s a nurturing place where you can study what you want for four years.” Yi also won several prestigious awards thanks to her commitment
