WHAT’S NEWS TRASH TALK

The glorious Dyker Heights Christmas lights display is expected to draw more than 150,000 visitors this year but the tourists won’t be tossing as much litter on the sidewalks as they have in the past if a local lawmaker gets his way. Councilmember Justin Brannan, a Democrat who represents Dyker Heights, Bay Ridge and parts of Bensonhurst, introduced a bill on Wednesday, August 14 to ban vendors from a section of Dyker Heights during the weeks the Christmas lights show takes place.The idea behind the legislation is to cut down on the amount of litter and trash that accumulates on local streets and sidewalks during the month-long holiday lights display, Brannan said. See page 2.

BASHING THE BAN

Rep. Max Rose came to Bay Ridge on Friday, August 16 to meet a Yemeni man whose ailing wife gained entry to the United States with the lawmaker’s help so that she could receive life-saving medical treatments. The lawmaker used the occasion to speak out against the controversial Trump administration travel ban that prohibits immigrants, even refugees, from entering the U.S. from seven countries: Yemen, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, North Korea and Venezuela. Yemen is currently engulfed in a bloody civil war that “has produced one of the largest humanitarian catastrophes,” according to Rose, who added that people fleeing the bloodshed can’t obtain permission to come to the U.S., even if they have family here, because of the administration’s strict ban.

CALLING OUT MAIL THEFT

Overflowing mailboxes, lost checks and identity theft have plagued areas of south Brooklyn for some time. Earlier this month, Assemblymember William Colton called for the postal service to install theft-proof mailboxes to address the problem. “There have been a number of problems with the United States Postal neighborhood mailboxes, where people’s identity have been stolen due to fishing in mailboxes,” Colton said. The assemblymember demanded that the postal service’s inspection service not only install theft-proof mailboxes, but investigate overflowing mailboxes in the area, which residents say is an issue caused by the post office’s failure to stick to scheduled daily pick-ups.

Trash talk at Dyker Heights Christmas lights display Brannan bill would ban vendors from holiday extravaganza BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

The glorious Dyker Heights Christmas lights display is expected to draw more than 150,000 visitors this year but the tourists won’t be tossing as much litter on the sidewalks as they have in the past if a local lawmaker gets his way. Councilmember Justin Brannan, a Democrat who represents Dyker Heights, Bay Ridge and parts of Bensonhurst, introduced a bill at the Council’s meeting on Wednesday, August 14 to ban vendors from a section of Dyker Heights during the weeks the Christmas lights show takes place. The idea behind the legislation is to cut down on the amount of litter and trash that accumulates on local streets and sidewalks during the monthlong holiday lights display, Brannan said in a statement emailed to the Home Reporter. The local pol was prompted to take action after hearing complaints from year-round residents about their trashy troubles. “The world-renowned Dyker Heights lights have become the nightmare before Christmas for many residents because of these vendors so this bill was really driven by resident feedback. Most forget this unique tradition exists in an entirely resi-

While homeowners are happy to welcome legions of tourists to the neighborhood once a year, they are not interested in overflowing garbage cans, litter all over the street and exhaust fumes from an ice cream truck idling outside their house for 12 hours a day, every day for a month,” Brannan stated. The tourists who descend on the neighborhood every December to look at the elaborate Christmas decorations often buy hot chocolate, ice cream, candy and hot dogs from sidewalk vendors and then throw the cups, wrappers and napkins on the ground, Brannan and

local officials said. “We hope this bill will put an end to that and return a little bit of sanity to the residents who live here for the other 11 months a year,” Brannan stated. Specifically, Brannan’s bill would prohibit vendors from setting up shop in the area of Dyker Heights that is the heart of the Christmas lights display — 10th Avenue to 13th Avenue, from 81st Street to 86th Street. Fran Vella-Marrone, president of the Dyker Heights Civic Association, said passing the bill would make a big difference. “In my view, vendors are 90 percent of the problem. If

you get rid of the vendors, you’ll get rid of a big part of the problem,” Vella-Marrone told the Home Reporter. The vendors cause litter and tie up traffic on the neighborhood street, Vella-Marrone said. The Dyker Heights Christmas lights display is an extravaganza put on by dozens of homeowners in the neighborhood who erect giant Santas, dancing reindeer, enormous “Nutcracker Suite” figures, illuminated snowflakes, moving angels and other elaborate decorations in front of their homes and play pre-recorded Christmas carols from sophisticated sound systems.

It has taken place each year for the past 25 years but has grown in size and scope in recent years. Tourists from all over the country board buses to take the trek to Brooklyn to enjoy the show. In recent years, some longtime residents have complained to elected officials, Community Board 10 and the Dyker Heights Civic Association that the event has gotten out of control with hordes of visitors clogging their sidewalks and treating the neighborhood like an amusement park. The problem got so bad in

2018 that Fight Back Bay Ridge, a local activist group, decided to organize teams of volunteers who spent two weekends picking up the trash. Josephine Beckmann, district manager of CB 10, endorsed the legislation. “I think it’s a great bill. The residents are living with vendors in trucks running their engines 12 hours a day. The bill will really address quality-oflife issues around the Christmas lights display,” Beckmann told the Home Reporter. Beckmann and VellaMarrone have appealed to city officials to do a better job of overseeing the event.

Bay Ridge’s Painted Pot to close, for real this time BY VICTOR PORCELLI EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

After a brief seven-month recovery, the Painted Pot is once again set to shutter in January. The DIY ceramics shop will join the scores of empty storefronts plaguing Bay Ridge by the end of the month. The shop was a place for people to stop in and paint a preformed ceramic piece of their

choosing. Owner Liza Mendoza, 54, posted on Facebook on August 3 to inform customers of the company’s impending departure from Bay Ridge, although it will retain its locations in Cobble Hill and Park Slope. “Thank you to all our loyal customers in Bay Ridge. August 31, 2019 will be our last day of painting in our Bay Ridge location. It’s with a heavy heart, I will need to close this location,” the post

reads. “It’s been an amazing 21 years painting pottery with you and being part of the Bay Ridge community.” Mendoza made a similar post in January, when the location was originally set to close. Many patrons of the shop — which offers walkins, classes, camps and children’s parties — expressed regret over the news, taking to Facebook to wish Mendoza well or share a favorite memo-

ry of the shop. However, Mendoza changed her mind when five-year-old Bryan Rumfelt touched her heart. Bryan’s father Keith sent Mendoza a video of the child walking up to the shop’s window, reading a sign about the coming closure and breaking into hysterics. According to his parents, the store is one of Bryan’s “favorite places ever.” His reaction led Mendoza to decide to keep the store open.

“Bryan made me realize how important our business has been to the community over the past 20 years,” Mendoza told the Home Reporter at the time. “And that comes from all of the support that we’ve received but Bryan — his reaction was so genuine and so real and it made me realize that there might be other children who are feeling this way as well.” Months later, the store is set to close again. Customers’

reactions on Facebook were much the same as in January, with one user commenting, “So sad. Our family outings there were great.” One past patron reminisced about time spent at the shop. “So sad I had such a nice time with my niece here,” she commented. With more than 60 vacant storefronts in southwest Brooklyn, the Painted Pot’s closing is adding to what many residents see as a worrying trend. Councilmember Justin Brannan, who represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Bath Beach, wrote an op-ed in this paper on the topic. In the op-ed, Brannan called the situation “complicated,” and stated that there were multiple causes leading to the same effect — stretches of “For Rent” signs in places like Bay Ridge. Gentrification incentivizes landlords to evict tenants and raise rents, mom-and-pop shops face competition from online retailers and impending zoning changes encourage building owners to ‘warehouse’ storefronts. All these factors contribute to closures, the councilmember said. Mendoza previously stated that she hoped to sell the location to another owner, and offered to consult with the buyer, saying “My current staff would be more than grateful to remain in Bay Ridge.”

Box truck hauling fish overturns, blocks inbound Gowanus traffic BY TODD MAISEL

EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

ebrooklyn media/Photos by Todd Maisel

A box truck hauling fish for local stores overturned on the westbound Gowanus Expressway Monday, Aug. 19, injuring two people and snarling Brooklyn-bound rush-hour traffic all the way to New Jersey, police said. The box truck, belonging to Hauli Fish House of Georgia, overturned as it approached the Fort Hamilton Parkway overpass, which is under construction, at about 5 p.m., causing the truck to block all lanes of the highway. A car was also said to have been involved, but it was not clear how. Firefighters and NYPD emergency services were able to free the driver of the truck and a passenger with only minor injuries. ESU then pulled the truck onto its wheels, but had to stop the removal of the truck because fuel and oil were leaking onto

the roadway, requiring hazardous materials firefighters to respond to drain the tanks on the truck before it could be moved. Frustrated motorists on the highway were stuck for nearly two hours as emergency crews worked to remove the fuel and finally clear the wreck. But by then, the evening rush hour into Brooklyn over the Verrazzano Bridge was a mess. It was not clear how the crash occurred; as of this writing, it was under investigation by NYPD highway units. Iron workers on the scene were concerned that the bridge that is under construction was damaged, but firefighters said it appeared the bridge was unharmed.

Assemblymember says After staffer scandal, mail and identity theft are progressives demand answers from Sunset Park rampant in south Brooklyn Assemblymember Ortiz BY VICTOR PORCELLI EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

BY KELLY MENA

KELLY@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

After firing a staffer who allegedly embezzled tens of thousands of dollars, State Assemblymember Felix Ortiz is coming under intense public scrutiny for his possible role in the recent money scandal. In a letter that was delivered to Ortiz’s office last week, leaders and members of progressive groups demanded that the politician immediately hold a town hall to address questions from the public. “These are troubling allegations that raise many questions.

Some of these are legal questions to be addressed in a courtroom, but others are political questions for you to address as our Assembly Member and the leader for the Democratic Party in Red Hook, Sunset Park, South Slope and parts of Bay Ridge and Borough Park,” said the letter, which was obtained by this paper. The questions included in the letter target, among other things, alleged improper disclosure report filings, the possibility of more stolen funds and the assemblymember’s own knowledge of the alleged embezzlement.

“This is the minimum that we are asking, not the maximum,” said Brandon West, president of the New Kings Democrats and a signatory of the letter. “There’s a lot of questions to answer and [Ortiz] should be as transparent and accountable as possible. That is his role as a legislator, he works for the people.” Maruf Alam, 29, of Kensington, was arrested on Aug. 8 by federal authorities on charges of wire fraud stemming from the alleged diversion of nearly $80,000 in campaign funds to his personal bank account, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York. State law requires that all candidates for state office provide reports on their campaign donations and expenses, filed through the New York State Board of Elections. The federal indictment against Alam alleges that he filed false reports, and in some cases no reports, in order to hide the purported embezzlement. According to an Ortiz spokesperson, the Sunset Park official didn’t fully grasp the scope of the crimes of his former staffer until the indictment was unsealed earlier this month, at which point he fired Alam immediately. “Ortiz is planning to address issues with the public shortly and is fully cooperating with the U.S. Attorney prosecuting Alam,” the spokesperson said. The spokesperson did not give an exact date for when Ortiz plans to give a public response.

Overflowing mailboxes, lost checks and identity theft have plagued areas of south Brooklyn for some time. Earlier this month, Assemblymember William Colton called for the postal service to install theftproof mailboxes to address the problem. “There have been a number of problems with the United States Postal neighborhood mailboxes, where people’s identity have been stolen due to fishing in mailboxes,”

Colton, who represents areas of Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach and Dyker Heights, said in a statement. Colton said that many of his constituents have older mailboxes that provide “access by opening the large slot where mail then can easily be fished out.” The Assemblymember demanded that the postal service’s inspection service not only install theft-proof mailboxes, but investigate overflowing mailboxes in the area, which residents say is an issue caused by the post office’s failure to stick to scheduled

daily pick-ups. “I am strongly advising the public not to use old mailboxes for their protection and that of their mail,” Colton said. District Manager of Community Board 11 — which covers Bath Beach, Bensonhurst, Gravesend and Mapleton — Marnee Elias-Pavia said, “The incidence of mail theft in our community has been an issue and it especially impacts our older community, especially those that do banking by check for paying bills. The newer mailboxes will be a benefit and protect our residents from such thefts.”

Bath Beach residents blast Con Ed after latest power outage BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

This time, the lights were out for only a short time. But residents of Bath Beach and Gravesend are still demanding answers from Con Edison after enduring another power outage on Aug. 10, three weeks after a previous outage left thousands of people in southern Brooklyn in the dark for more than five hours. Approximately 3,800 Con Ed customers in the Bath Beach-Gravesend area lost electricity for 90 minutes on Saturday. The lights went out at around 5:30 p.m. “This was a short one, about an hour and a half,” Bath Beach resident Marie Sabatino told this paper.

“The last time, it was five and a half hours. But it shouldn’t be happening at all. It’s very frustrating that our electricity keeps going out.” Even though Saturday’s outage was of short duration, it was still a terrible event, said Councilmember Mark Treyger, a Democrat who represents the affected area. “Small businesses were affected,” he said, adding that the Parkview Diner at 2939 Cropsey Ave. was among the businesses in the dark. Treyger plans to introduce a resolution in the City Council to call on Con Ed to change the window of time in which customers can apply for reimbursements for rotten foods and other

damages caused by power outages. Under the current rules, customers whose electricity was out for 12 hours or more in a 24-hour period can apply for reimbursement. Treyger wants to lower that threshold to two hours. “If you’re running a business, even losing electricity for two hours is a hardship,” he said. Anne Marie Corbalis, corporate affairs manager for Con Ed, said the problem was caused by an unexpected equipment issue. “Crews responded immediately and restored power to all customers in about an hour and a half. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused,” she told this paper in an email.

According to reports, the owner, a 71-year-old woman, left the house to go out of state on Aug. 8. Days later, at around 12:50 p.m., a neighbor called her and told her that the bedroom window was open.

Investigation into alleged threat to rapper 50 Cent by 72nd Precinct’s top cop is dropped BY JAIME DEJESUS

JDEJESUS @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

The NYPD has closed its case on 72nd Precinct Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez regarding rapper Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent. The New York Daily News reported this past February that Gonzalez told officers during roll call in June of 2018 to “shoot him on sight,” referring to Jackson, if they saw the rapper at an NYPD boxing charity event held in the Bronx last summer. “The inspector just said that at roll call,” a source told the Daily News. “I’m like, WTF.” According to the paper, Gonzalez has laughed the comment off as a “bad joke.” In February, the NYPD took the case under internal review. On August 12, an NYPD spokesperson told this paper they concluded that, “(The) allegation was unsubstantiated.” Jackson responded via an Instagram post the same day that has since been deleted from his account. “I knew they were not going to do anything about this, so I stop talking about it. NYPD is hands down the toughest gang in New York,” he wrote. Gonzalez’s attorney Delvis Valdes told this paper, “We are grateful that the department made its decision and that this

matter should now be considered concluded and we are moving forward with the business of protecting the citizens of the 72nd Precinct.” This wasn’t the first time Gonzalez and Jackson have had issues. In 2018, a $125 million notice of claim was filed against the city by a club Jackson frequented, Love and Lust, 225 47th Street, whose owner Imran Jairam alleged that Gonzalez demanded contributions to Puerto Rican relief efforts to forestall enforcement of violations at the bar. Subsequently, Jackson posted a televised report of the story on Instagram and wrote, “Get the strap” on the post, referencing Gonzalez. Allegedly, the phrase translates to “Get the gun.” As a result, many of Jackson’s followers wrote threatening comments on the post, such as “Blast this fool.” Later that year, Community Board 7 nixed the club’s liquor license request. Following reports of the alleged comment by Gonzalez, Jackson wrote on Instagram, “I’m afraid for my life, I haven’t been able to sleep since I heard of this,” he posted on his social media account. “The cops never notified me of the threat. I’m closing all my business in New York. I may have to sue the city.” A rally was held shortly after the allegations in support of Gonzalez outside the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park. “All of these people here

today make up Sunset Park,” said President of the Village of Sunset Park Ray Acevedo, a retired NYPD sergeant, of the diverse crowd. “We have come together to support a commanding officer who has done more than any other CO has done in this precinct ever before. He has united us together as one community.” During the 72nd Precinct’s National Night Out on August 7th, several discussed the fine job Gonzalez was doing within the community.

“We need in this country a form of public safety partnership that is represented by what is right here on this soccer field tonight, by immigrants who have come from countries all over the world to make this a beautiful place,” said Councilmember Brad Lander. “I want to thank Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez,” said George Cardona of the Sunset Park Lions Club. “He has always included everyone (in the community).”

‘The past is present’ — Brooklyn historian unpacks history of Bay Ridge in new book BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK

MEAGHAN @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A Brooklyn historian’s love for his hometown was laid bare Tuesday evening at a launch party for his latest book, “How Bay Ridge Became Bay Ridge.” In celebration of the publication’s premiere, author Henry

Stewart unpacked a bit of the neighborhood’s history in a live Q&A with Radio Free Bay Ridge co-host Dan Hetteix at a venue emblematic to some of the book’s own themes. “At the Owl’s Head, we feel a sense of urgency surrounding the existing and growing culture of southern Brooklyn, where we grew up,” said John Avelluto, owner of the Owl’s Head Wine

Bar, where the standing-roomonly celebration spilled out onto the sidewalk. The bar-owner, a Bay Ridge native himself, used his introduction to reflect on a time when Stewart came to the defense of the Owl’s Head, a first-of-its kind in the neighborhood when it opened in 2011. “I was extremely nervous about our reception, as we

didn’t fit the mold for a bar in the neighborhood, “ Avelluto said, adding that, when the press began calling him a “hipster invader” and a “gentrifier,” Stewart wrote a rebuttal for L Magazine, titled, “Can a Native Brooklynite Still Be an Invading Hipster?” In it, Avelluto said, “Henry illustrates a wider, more inclusive vision of Bay Ridge through analysis of its past — a practice that he obviously has continued to partake in and expand. And I’m glad that he has. He has played more than an integral part in the shaping of Bay Ridge over the past 10 years, by not only evoking its history but also by loving it enough to not eliminate it to its past.” Stewart, vice president of the Bay Ridge Historical Society, has spent his entire life in the neighborhood. He fondly remembers the New York Coffee Exchange and the now-painted over murals on Food City, and he still has his McKinley gym shorts. His parents — of Norwegian and Scandinavian descent — took their wedding photos at Owl’s Head Park and held their reception at the Danish Athletic Club. All of this, coupled with his passion for history, made penning “How Bay Ridge Became

Bay Ridge” a labor of love. The book is broken up into 20 chapters and three parts: People, Parks and Specters. The latter, Stewart said, focusing on developments and other local institutions “that no longer exist but whose effects we still feel.” Heavily sourced from news archives like the Brooklyn Eagle’s, Stewart’s work begins with a quote by author Hubert Selby Jr.: “Bay Ridge, I think, is the same for the last 80 years with a few physical exceptions.” “That’s what I think the book is about, this sort of great transformation of this farming community into an urban and suburban neighborhood,” Stewart said, stressing also that his retelling begins with the Nayak tribe and the slaves of southern Brooklyn. “The history begins with them,” he said, later noting that the Native Americans were inevitably pushed out by the Dutch, and that Bay Ridge, at one time, had even more slaveowners than South Carolina. The book also delves into Bay Ridge’s Dutch ancestry, its introduction to modern transportation (well before the notorious R train), and its early days as a resort town similar, in ways, to both the Hamptons and to current-day Coney Island. Chapter four — which

Stewart read aloud Tuesday night — focuses solely on the neighborhood’s name change from Yellow Hook to Bay Ridge in the 1850s. The local historian debunks the myth that the moniker was changed after an outbreak of Yellow Fever (while the fear was real, the actual local outbreak came later) — and unveils the simplicity behind horticulturist James Weir’s suggestion (after all, the neighborhood did exist on a high ridge that overlooked the bay). When asked by Hetteix what he took away from his work, Stewart said simply: “You should financially support local historians.” “The past is present, right?” he followed up. “So, all the sorts of things that we fight for — whether its public spaces, or public transportation or whatever else — I think that this offers you a sort of look back at what people were already doing to achieve those things … so that, when doing that in present day, we can learn from those examples and hopefully not make the same mistakes.” “How Bay Ridge Became Bay Ridge” is available now online and in stores, alongside Stewart’s “True Crime Bay Ridge.”

News Around the Boro DI FARA PIZZA SEIZED FOR NON-PAYMENT OF TAXES

MIDWOOD — Di Fara Pizza on Avenue J, named the best pizzeria in New York by New York magazine, the Village Voice and the Daily News, has been seized by the state government for non-payment of taxes, according to the New York Post. A photo posted on Twitter shows a locked gate with a sign, “Warning: This property has been seized for nonpayment of taxes and is now in the possession of the State of New York.” On any given day, you could see lines of people outside the store waiting for pies and slices. This isn’t the first time Di Fara has been in trouble: in May of this year, it was shut down temporarily because it failed a city health inspection.  BROWNSVILLE — Water has been pouring from the walls and ceiling every day for two weeks at Moet Smith’s NYCHA apartment in Brownsville, and the family had enough. She reached out to PIX 11’s Monica Morales for help. Smith’s 83-year-old father and 4-year-old nephew live with her at Seth Low Houses, and she’s worried about the slipping and getting hurt. “Every time I try to mop up the water, more water comes,” she said. NYCHA officials said they are investigating Smith’s complaints. 

DEP, ENVIRONMENTALISTS CLEAN UP JAMAICA BAY

JAMAICA BAY — Jamaica Bay is home to many species of marine life and birds and has been a favorite destination of boaters, bird watchers and fishers. However, pollution and development have taken its toll on the bay. Now, the city’s Department of Environmental Protection has been working with environmental organizations to help the bay bounce back, according to NY1 News. One of the main issues is that of combined sewer overflows during storms, which can release untreated wastewater into the bay. Don Reipe of the American Littoral Society, who has been involved in restoring marshes, told NY1 News, ““An easy thing to do is to come out and take something off the beach. You’ve done something, you can actually see the results of your work.” 

COPS FIRED UPON WHEN RESPONDING TO CALL

BED-STUY — Shots were fired early Sunday morning at officers who were responding to an early morning call in Brooklyn, according to New York 1 News. Shots rang out around near Saratoga Avenue and Bainbridge Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to authorities. Witnesses told NY1 it happened during a neighborhood cookout. “I think this is part of a trend. It’s a little disturbing,” one member of the community told NY1. Police say five people were arrested for disorderly conduct in connection with the incident. 

DEVELOPER SAYS HE’LL PUT MUSEUM IN BUILDING

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — The owner of a Downtown Brooklyn house associated with the city’s abolitionist movement said he plans to build an African-American museum as part of his plan to redevelop 227 Duffield St. into an apartment building. Samiel Hanasab, who in June applied for a demolition permit, told Gothamist he had consented to creating a museum under an agreement with the previous owner. His plans call for a 13-story mixed-use building with 21 residential units. “I have a high respect for African-Americans,” Hanasab said. “This project will be in the basement.” 

BROOKLYN AND CATSKILLS ORAL HISTORIAN DIES

BOROUGHWIDE — Myrna Katz Frommer, who channeled the voices of comedians and busboys in the Catskills and teachers and rabbis in Brooklyn through vivid oral histories she created with her husband, died on Aug. 8 at her home in Lyme, N.H. at the age of 80. Ms. Frommer edited her husband’s many books, which were frequently about baseball, before he submitted them, according to The New York Times. When they began to work on oral histories in the late 1980s, they found common ground. Their first book, “It Happened in the Catskills” (1988), started as a conventional narrative history of the fastfading world of summer resorts and bungalow colonies known as the borscht belt. “To capture a phenomenon shortly before it disappears into the mists of memory,” they wrote, “there may be no medium more effective than oral history.” They followed that book with “It Happened in Brooklyn” (1993), in which they wrote about many things that were once shared by people from the borough, including a love of “a half-sour pickle straight from the barrel, a charlotte russe from the bakery in the wintertime” and “lime rickeys and malted milks.” 

BROOKLYN MAN REUNITED WITH SICK WIFE FROM EGYPT

BAY RIDGE — Congressmember Max Rose (D-Bay Ridge-Staten Island) and the Yemeni-American Merchants Association recently helped bring Ahmed Nagi Almulaiki’s wife, Gaini, to the United States after she fled the war in Yemen. She went to Egypt, but then became sick, suffering from kidney failure.

WATER POURING FROM WALLS, CEILING AT NYCHA APARTMENT

What was still a basketball court in disrepair just over two months ago was transformed Tuesday night and drew a crowd of dozens. Fresh paint, renovated bleachers and a stage equipped with a sound system turned the Bedford-Stuyvesant Tompkins Houses into an impromptu hip-hop concert for the development’s youth. For the full story, visit brooklyneagle.com. Rose and YAMA worked together to get a waiver to allow her to obtain a visa to come to the U.S. to receive medical treatment, NY1 News said. “This is a tool to reunite families, and it’s one that everyone should be pursuing,” said Rose. 

NORTH B’KLYN TENANTS WANT A TRUSTEE

NORTH BROOKLYN — Tenants of 12 rent-stabilized buildings in North Brooklyn want the bankruptcy court to appoint a trustee who would oversee the buildings, which they say are plagued by chronic leaks, mold and infestations. The tenants say they have been failed by the nonprofit that manages the building, Northeast Brooklyn Housing Development Corp., according to Crain’s. The buildings have blocked fire exits, doors that don’t lock, collapsed ceilings, and rats, bed bugs and roaches, Crain’s said. 

AFFORDABLE HOUSING LOTTERY OPENS IN CLINTON HILL

CLINTON HILL — Last week, an affordable housing lottery opened for 114 newly constructed units in two nine-story buildings in Clinton Hill. One is located at 909 Atlantic Ave., the other at 1043 Fulton St., according to the Brooklyn Paper. Together, they are known as the Athena Apartments. The buildings are part of the redevelopment plan for the Brooklyn Heights Library, in which the developer, Hudson Companies, struck a deal to build affordable housing at two off-site locations in Clinton Hill. The buildings include 55 studios, 32 one-bedroom units, 22 two-bedroom units and five three-bedroom units. Monthly rents start at $896 and top out at $2,952, the Brooklyn Paper said. 

BED-STUY MAN DEVELOPS APP TO HELP B’KLYNITES

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Bedford-Stuyvesant resident Mark Macias has developed a new app, named Brooklyn Bound, that helps people find some of the best restaurants, bars and venues to seek out in five neighborhoods, according to the Brooklyn Paper. “You Can’t Google every single place, so we thought it would be good to have one single spot for everything,” he told the publication. Macias and his wife moved to the neighborhood three years ago and soon found that finding favorite destinations in Brooklyn took a lot of work. So he started going on Yelp to find restaurants, bars, and businesses with good reviews. The app already has hundreds of downloads. 

RAPPER CREATES PANDEMONIUM WHEN VISITING HIS OLD SCHOOL

WILLIAMSBURG — When rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine visited his former middle school in Brooklyn last year, he gave a performance that quickly became a “dangerous situation” when he threw cash at students, according to the New York Post. Tekashi shouted, “This used to be my school!” at the Juan Morel Campos Secondary School in Williamsburg. When he started flinging cash in the air, taller teens jumped up to snatch the bills as smaller kids scrambles on the floor to scoop up more money. Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was expelled in the eighth grade and later joined a street gang. In a federal case, Tekashi, now 23, admitted that he took part in shooting a rival rapper, gunpoint robberies and heroin sales, according to the Post. 

CYCLIST’S DEATH SPARKS CAMPAIGN FOR SAFETY

MIDWOOD — Southern Brooklyn residents are calling on the city to redesign Coney Island Avenue in the wake of the tragic death of cyclist Jose Alzorriz. The petition, created by Sandra Cortona, asks the Department of Transportation to build a protected bike lane that uses planters, curbs or posts to separate the bike and automobile traffic, according to amNewYork. The petition also argues that the street should be redesigned in a way that would slow vehicles down, and that cameras should be used to monitor speeding, illegal parking and right-of-way violations. Alzorriz, of Park Slope, was struck and killed in a chain-reaction crash in Midwood on Sunday. 

CITY SEEKS TO IMPROVE B’WAY JUNCTION TRANSIT HUB

EAST NEW YORK — The city’s Economic Development Corp. on Thursday introduced a plan to transform Broadway Junction — which brings together five subway lines, the Long Island Rail Road and six bus routes — into an accessible transit hub, according to 6sqft.com. Councilmember Rafael Espinal, who represents the area, said that “Broadway Junction is an area that has been overutilized and underinvested in for decades.” At the present time, the station is inaccessible for people with disabilities, and a lack of investment has caused major congestion problems and crumbling infrastructure. 

Coney Island celebrates 29th annual sand sculpting contest By Paul Frangipane Brooklyneagle.com

The sand on Coney Island’s beach went vertical on Saturday when dozens of amateurs, professionals and semi-pro sculptors poured their creativity into it for the 29th annual Sand Sculpting Competition. In addition to classic castle designs, sculptors took creative approaches in building human and animal figures, symbolic scenes and political art pieces (one artist crafted the scene of a hand holding a sign that said, “Abolish ICE”). “I think every year more and more people know about it, the crowds are bigger,” said Kristina Reintamm of Brooklyn Community Services, the group that hosted the event with the Alliance for Coney Island. “It seems to be becoming more and more of a real Coney Island signature event.” The event was free and open to the public, accessed from the boardwalk at West 12th Street. Sculptors had four hours to craft their design. As the clock ticked closer to the cutoff time, swarms of beachgoers flocked to the sand to appreciate the art and take selfies in front of the pieces. Joe Sloboda, 58, who took first place in the Family category with his cousin Frank Russo, said he and Russo hadn’t touched sand in more than two years, but they quickly constructed their version of Hogwarts from Harry Potter, drawing crowds almost immediately after they started. “We’ve been doing this for years, we started with our kids when they were very very small and now they’re adults and we still come to the beach as a family to enjoy the time together and make castles,” Sloboda said. “We enjoy the contest, we enjoy the camaraderie and most importantly, we enjoy the summer.” This was the first year the contest gave out cash prizes for three contestants in each category, family, individual and adult group. The prizes were $250, $100 and $50. Sculptures were judged based on theme and creativity, according to Reintamm. John Woodard, a client success manager who took second in the individual adult category, was fielding questions about his Two Thoughts piece all day. The sculpture featured a manic face inside of a cage and, according to Woodard, represented the thoughts a person has when they’re trying to

Scenes from this year's Coney Island Sand Sculpting Contest

remain calm and be polite, even though they may be screaming in their head. Because of the open nature of the event, passers-by could register on the spot and compete. Gary Feliciano was watching the news in the morning, saw the contest was being held in a few hours and ran over from Sheepshead Bay to take part. He won in 2017 as well as this year in the individual adult category for his Climbing Woman, a figure of a woman

climbing a mountain. But Feliciano takes pride most in the influence he had on a little girl last year when he told her to join and she ended up taking first place. He smiled and looked back on it saying, “The most important thing to me was that I planted a seed.”

BACK TO SCHOOL

Mermaid Avenue to be setting for education fair BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Coney Island civic leaders and local lawmakers are helping to usher in the start of the school year by giving children free backpacks, notebooks and other classroom supplies at a festive, family-oriented street fair. The Alliance for Coney Island, a non-profit organization that promotes the neighborhood, will be hosting the Second Annual Coney Island Back to School Community Fair on Saturday, Sept. 7, on Mermaid Avenue from noon to 4 p.m. Four blocks of Mermaid Avenue, between West 25th Street and West 29th Street, will be closed to vehicular traffic to give families a chance to stroll on the avenue and stop at booths that will be set up along the route to give out free backpacks and school supplies and prizes. The event will feature live entertainment, games and prizes. Mermaid Avenue is Coney Island’s main commercial street. There will also be booths manned by health care

providers, tenant advocacy groups and civic organizations to offer Coney Island residents up-to-date information and assistance. In addition, NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island will be offering free blood pressure screenings. Project Street Beat at Planned Parenthood will have its mobile unit on hand to offer health services that do not require insurance. The CAMBA Homebase mobile unit will assist residents with housing issues. The Alliance for Coney Island created the fair to provide assistance to families who are having trouble making ends meet financially. “This event brings the community together and we are ecstatic to be able to bring school supplies and backpacks directly to families to help kick-off the school year in a fun and informative way,” Alliance Executive Director Alexandra Silversmith said in a statement. Last year’s inaugural backto-school event was a major success, according to Alliance leaders, who said more than 700 backpacks and school supplies were distributed to kids.

Savino, Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus and Councilmember Mark Treyger, to organize the event. Coney Island Cathedral and the New York City Department of Transportation are also lending a hand. The fair is part of DOT’s Weekend Walks program, a citywide initiative in which streets are closed to

cars to allow pedestrians to roam free. The back-to-school fair provides a valuable service, according to Treyger, who is chairperson of the Council’s Education Committee. “This community-driven event provides valuable services free of cost to any child that needs a backpack. I commend the

Alliance for Coney Island and our small businesses in Coney Island for organizing this important event to guarantee that every student succeeds in the classroom,” he stated. The free distribution of school supplies also helps teachers, Frontus said. “We all know teachers are stretched to the limit setting up their classrooms, to provide an environment where students are focused and prepared to learn. It’s a pleasure that my colleagues and I can help families and teachers alike, so that they can concentrate on the lessons that will help our students succeed,” she said. Savino said she appreciates the fair’s holistic approach. "As we approach the beginning of the school year, it's especially important that all students have the supplies they need to have a successful year. This annual event helps accomplish that with not only backpacks but resources to ensure that students are healthy and ready to learn on day one," she said.

Rain or shine, Domino Park draws a crowd By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

When you want to watch the weather put on a show, Domino Park is the place to go. There’s a quarter-mile stretch of shoreline in the wa-

terfront Williamsburg recreation area. It affords a frontrow seat for observing summer storm clouds as they gather above Manhattan’s skyscrapers and advance across the East River towards Brooklyn.

The Domino Sugar Refinery and One South First (the tower at left) are located at the edge of Domino Park. Even when the clouds grow darker and the not-sodistant air turns gray with rain, Domino Park visitors are reluctant to abandon the six-acre park’s esplanade, or its wooden lounge chairs that

face the Empire State Building or the spots they staked out with blankets on the green lawns. I was there the other day when a tempest blew in. I too found it impossible to leave the park — though I could see the downpour was nearby, and logic dictated it was headed in our direction. The purple clouds boiling over Manhattan were hard to turn away from. Before I enthuse further about the visual drama of rain sweeping over the mighty river, I need to say, emphatically, that you should not stay in the park if you think there’s lightning in the oncoming clouds. The park’s got towering gantry cranes, salvaged from the site’s long years as a sugar refinery. There are mammoth metal tanks in which syrup was stored. And 21 metal columns from Domino’s Raw Sugar Warehouse form the framework of an elevated walkway. These beautiful historic artifacts could turn into gigantic lightning rods.

JAMES CORNER FIELD OPERATIONS WAS THE PARK’S DESIGNER Anyway. The reason I went to Williamsburg on that stormy day was to check out the progress Two Trees Management is making on construction at the 11-acre Domino Sugar Refinery development. The park opened in June 2018. It takes up six of the site’s 11 acres. James Corner Field Operations designed the park, which cost $50 million to build. This landscape architecture firm was the project lead for the popular

High Line, which runs through the Meatpacking District and Chelsea. Mark Reigelman designed the park’s playground equipment, which looks like miniature sugar factory buildings. Two Trees Management, which belongs to the Walentas family, is constructing new buildings with about 2,800 apartments on the Domino site. Twenty percent of the apartments will be affordable units.

SHELTER FROM THE STORM The Domino building I most wanted to see on my rainy-day visit is One South First, aka 260 Kent Ave., whose construction is ongoing.

It’s shaping up nicely. Its bright-white precast concrete facade and windows are in place. Designer COOKFOX Architects has said that sugar crystals inspired its facade design. The building is composed of two towers that connect at their tops and have a void between them. I rode the NYC Ferry to North Williamsburg because the middle of the East River affords the best vantage point for seeing One South First’s towers and the donut hole between them. When my ferry boat passed Domino Park and One South First, the skies were blue. By the time I walked

Rain or shine, Domino Park draws a crowd

Eye on REAL ESTATE

— Continued from page 16INB — down from North Williamsburg’s ferry landing to Domino Park’s Grand Street entrance, dark clouds had formed a shelf over the Lower East Side and Lower Manhattan. I kept strolling around the park, snapping photos, as the rain got closer and closer and closer. All of a sudden, gusts of wind whipped in and tossed a torrent of precipitation at all of us who hadn’t left the park. The rain felt cold as snow. Everybody ran for a sidewalk shed attached to the landmarked Domino Sugar Refinery buildings. I was sorry I’d stopped doing wind-sprint workouts years ago.

People pose for pictures on Domino Park’s esplanade while a dark cloud looms. AN APARTMENT BUILDING DESIGNED BY SHOP ARCHITECTS

Domino Park’s gantry cranes stand tall as a storm approaches.

A few details about One South First’s design: The shorter tower is 22 stories tall and will contain 150,000 square feet of office space. The taller, 42-story building will have 330 rental apartments, 66 of them affordable units. There will also be 15,000 square feet of retail space. Highprofile Bushwick pizzeria Roberta’s is opening a second restaurant in about 2,300 square feet of that space, food-focused website Grub Street recently reported. When I checked One South First’s website the other day, listings included studios with asking rents of $3,356 or $3,373 per month and one-bedroom units for $4,084 or $4,120 per month. As for the rain, it poured down so hard that some of it came through the top of the sidewalk shed where we took refuge. After a while I dashed (meaning my slow-motion version of dashed) across the street to Mekelburg’s, a specialty food store/craft beer bar at 325 Kent Ave. SHoP Architects designed this new apartment building at the Domino complex. It has a zinc and copper facade and is shaped like a squared-off donut. The 16-story building has 522 rental apartments, 104 of them affordable units. Asking rents for available market-rate apartments recently posted on 325 Kent Ave.’s website range from $3,185 per month for a studio to $5,289 per month for a two-bedroom unit.

A FACTORY WITH A GLASS BUILDING INSIDE IT For a good long while, it seemed like the downpour was going to last forever. Then it was abruptly over. Some people took their kids back to Domino Park’s fountain to splash around in its 88 water jets. Other park-goers settled onto a turf field near the Havemeyers & Elder Filter, Pan & Finishing House. That’s the refinery’s formal name. Its address is 292-314 Kent Ave.

These syrup tanks in Domino Park are artifacts from the site’s long history of sugar production.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Two Trees Management plans to create office space inside the 1880s refinery by demolishing its roof and constructing a glass-walled building inside the brick factory walls. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission approved this design in November 2017. The architecture firm that designed the refinery’s makeover plan, PAU, returned to the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Aug. 13 to ask for permission to tweak the plan. It was granted.

Amen, “Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee! St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid me in my distress!”

C.J.M. CONTRACTING INC. CHRIS MULLINS Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 23, 1944

ON AUG. 23, 1944, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “London, Aug. 23 (UP) — An angry army of French patriots rebelled against their Nazi conquerors and liberated their capital city of Paris today. Striking for their own freedom even as a massive American tank army gathered at the city gates, hundreds of thousands of embattled Partisans stormed Nazi barricades, overwhelmed the enemy garrisons and hoisted the tri-color triumphantly over the city … In four days street fighting such as the ancient city had not seen since the storming of the Bastille 155 years ago, the ill-armed patriots routed the bulk of the German occupation forces from Paris and slaughtered the doomed rear guards left to cover the Nazi evacuation.”

President George Washington never had wooden teeth. His dentures were made from ivory, gold, and other human teeth. The dentures were apparently very uncomfortable and made Washington extremely self-conscious, causing his lower lip to jut out unnaturally. In medieval Germany the only cure for a toothache was to kiss a donkey. Pucker up! A snail's mouth is no larger than a pin - but contains 25,000 tiny teeth!

When using a hammer, like a claw hammer, for home repair, never hit nails with the side or head of a hammer as the metal is not as hard as the metal of the striking face and could be damaged. If you get chewing gum stains on your clothing, place a newspaper (like the Brooklyn Eagle) over the top and give it a quick iron to save the day! Nothing is permanent! Even if your babies used a marker on the walls, toothpaste is a fine abrasive that will remove pretty much anything it touches!

Indisputably the most widely read and influential book ever written about the human mind

ON AUG. 22, 1969, a few days after the end of the Woodstock Festival in upstate New York, Brooklyn Spectator columnist “Uncle Walt” wrote, “Couldn’t help thinking the other day, it’s bad enough to look at even one of those hippies — or hippie types. Can you imagine 400,000 of them — all at one time?? It is frightening though to think that so many of our young people are like that. They’re escapists, in our book. But there seems to be enough of them to start another political party. Can you imagine them running the country? We blame our involvement in the Vietnam War for a lot of these conditions. The only hope is that once that thing is settled and out of the way, a lot of these other conditions will fade away and die.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 23, 1926

ON AUG. 23, 1920, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “A list of investors in the [Charles] Ponzi scheme — persons who trusted in the ability of the overnight financier to make riches for them in a month or two – looked like a cross section of the community when it was printed today. All walks of life were there — men and women of the professions, of business and of labor. It is estimated that thirty thousand in all placed their money in the scheme which is now in receivership and of these about one-half withdrew it with or without the 50 percent interest which Ponzi paid before the crash. The others are relying on federal receivers to recover what is left.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 23, 1926, the Eagle reported, “Rudolph Valentino is dead! Death occurred at 12:10 o’clock, Eastern daylight time, in the Polyclinic Hospital, Manhattan, where eight days ago the man familiarly known to millions as Rudy underwent a double operation for gastric ulcers and appendicitis ‌ The word brings sadness into many homes all over the world, for the dark-eyed young man with the winning smile was regarded as the most popular man of his type on the screen ‌ Valentino died as he lived, in a pitiless glare of publicity. At the hour of his death, police reserves had been called to handle the great crowds milling around the Polyclinic Hospital, where the dying man lay on the eighth floor in suite Q, guarded day and night by detectives. During the eight days following his operation, a score or more newspaper men and women were on constant watch in the press room downstairs. Thousands of telephone messages, hundreds of floral offerings and other gifts poured in on the hospital, one little cabaret singer who ‘knew him when’ even bringing all she had, a pet monkey, to cheer the great sheik of the films.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 23, 1953, the Eagle reported, “Tehran (UP) — Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi today return in triumph to his capital to receive a hysterical and weeping welcome from his jubilant subjects. Overjoyed Iranians wept, shouted, flung themselves to the ground and slaughtered whole herds of sheep in a wild orgy of welcome. The 33-year-old ruler, wearing a trim military uniform and gold-braided cap, flew his own twin-engined plane from Baghdad, Iraq ‌ One of the ruler’s first actions upon arriving was to ask officials about the condition of former Premier Mohammed Mossadegh, whose more than two years of iron-handed rule of Iran was ended by Royalist forces in Wednesday’s bloody fighting. Reza Pahlevi told new Premier Gen. Fazollah Zahedi he hoped the aged Mossadegh was being kept comfortable and his health was good.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 26, 1876, the Eagle reported, “Tomorrow will be the one hundredth anniversary of the battle fought by Washington and his Revolutionary troops against the combined British forces under General Howe, on the site and in the vicinity of what is now the City of Brooklyn. The battle is not in history specifically identified with Brooklyn, because Brooklyn as we know it had no existence then, and was not even foreshadowed to the most prophetic eye by the insignificant hamlet that bore its name ‌ Where the verdant meadows and finely shaded walks of Prospect Park today invite the feet and rest the eye of our people, there was a tangled wilderness penetrated by a narrow and forbidding country road, of which the most agreeable feature was a rural tavern ‌ Still it is proper to speak of the fight which occurred ‌ as the Battle of Brooklyn, for the field is now practically included within the limits of the city, and is in all its historical associations the chief Revolutionary treasure of our population.â€?

New York City’s largest rooftop farm sprouts up in Brooklyn BY SCOTT ENMAN SCOTT@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

omatoes, carrots and cucumbers are only a few of the many fresh options now growing on New York City’s largest rooftop farm: a 140,000-squarefoot facility in Sunset Park. In addition to growing produce, which will go to restaurants and farmers markets, the new facility — operated by Brooklyn Grange — offers a “Swiss army knife” of benefits for the city, according to co-founder Anastasia Plakias. Environmentally, rooftop farms can cut energy costs, decrease combined-sewer-overflow, reduce urban heat island effect, create a habitat for wildlife, absorb

air pollutants and lessen noise pollution. The farm’s close proximity to Green-Wood Cemetery will also give migratory and native birds a place to take refuge. Plakias said that while it’s difficult to stop New York from expanding upwards, residents could help the city grow in a different type of way. “It’s impossible to ignore the piece of development in this city,” she told this paper. “Development will never cease in New York City. There will always be change happening, but we have an opportunity to influence the direction and shape that that change takes. Now is a really critical time for New York City to be a leader.”

The space at 850 Third Ave. is the company’s third farm. The first opened in 2010 in Long Island City, and the second came to the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2012. The Sunset Park green roof acts like a giant sponge, managing roughly 175,000 gallons of storm water in a single rainfall — helping to reduce the amount of CSO entering New York’s waterways. (The Brooklyn Navy Yard facility, in comparison, can manage about 100,000 gallons of water per storm.) Because of its ability to reduce CSO, the roof was partially paid for by the Department of Environmental Protection’s Green

Infrastructure Grant Program. The new space, located adjacent to the Metropolitan Detention Center and overlooking the Sims Municipal

Recycling, will also host weddings and other special occasions. An event space and kitchen are currently under construction, and co-founder Ben Flanner said the farm would ideally host parties in the future using fresh herbs to garnish drinks. Borough President Eric Adams said that it was crucial for similar operations like Brooklyn Grange to open in low-income communities. “We don’t need fast food. We need farm food, and it’s right here in the heart of our city,” he said. “This is profitable to be able

to grow food in an urban environment: Not only isolated in communities that are gentrified, but also in Brownsville, East New York and Bedford-Stuyvesant. “There’s no reason we can’t have a Brooklyn Grange on the top of every NYCHA building so they can grow healthy food and live a healthy lifestyle. We can’t grow new land but we can better utilize our rooftops.” The space, which officially opens on Sunday, will be open to the public every Sunday through October from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sunset Park will get protected bike lanes by the end of the year, DOT says BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

T

he project has been expedited due to the mayor’s Green Wave program. Fourth Avenue in Sunset Park will have protected bike lanes by the end of the year. The city’s Department of Transportation has made significant progress on the project, according to DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg and Councilmember Carlos Menchaca. “We asked DOT if it can be expedited, and DOT responded with good news,” Menchaca said at a press conference on Wednesday afternoon. Protected bike lanes, which separate cyclists from vehicular traffic with physical barriers such as stanchions or parked cars,

offer an extra layer of safety for bicyclists. T he announcement comes during a particularly dangerous time for Brooklyn cyclists. Nineteen people have been killed while biking  so far this year, and 13 of those deaths occurred in Brooklyn. Last year, 10 cyclists were killed citywide over the course of the whole year. “We’ve needed a protected bike lane on Fourth Avenue for a long time, and I am proud to stand beside the Department of Transportation to announce its arrival by year’s end,” Menchaca said. “This is a victory for our neighbors and members of the cycling community who live and work in and around Sunset Park.” The city will take the following measures to enhance street safety:

• Installing curbside, parking-protected bike lanes on each side of the avenue; • Painting new pedestrian islands at intersections; • Updating parking regulations and expanding metered parking. Two portions of Fourth Avenue — a section located between 64th Street and 60th Street in Sunset Park and another one located between First Street and 15th Street in Park Slope — have already been completed, DOT said. The section of the avenue located between 15th Street and 38th Street is slated to be completed this fall, along with the portion running from 38th Street to 57th Street. DOT officials are working in cooperation with MTA New York City Transit on the latter section, because

the MTA is currently doing above-ground work on the R subway line, which runs beneath Fourth Avenue. The three-block stretch of the avenue between 57th and 60th streets won’t be completed until 2020 because of an MTA NYC Transit project. DOT hasn’t even touched the portion of Fourth Avenue located between First Street and Atlantic Avenue, where the agency “has not solved all of the design challenges,” Trottenberg said. Still, officials and bike advocates said there is a lot to celebrate, particularly for Sunset Park residents. “This really is an incredible win for the neighborhood,” said Danny Harris, executive director of Transportation Alternatives, who added that bike lanes give local residents “more options” in transportation.

DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg (right) and Councilmember Carlos Menchaca (second from right) announce the coming bike lanes. “We’re trying to get people out of their cars,” said Menchaca, an avid bike rider. Sunset Park is particularly suited for bike lanes, according to Menchaca, who described the neighborhood as a “walk to work community.” The protected bike lanes are part of Green Wave, an ambitious project Mayor Bill de Blasio announced last month in Bay Ridge in which DOT will install bike lanes along 80 miles of city streets over the next few years. Councilmember Brad

Lander, who represents Park Slope, said he was thinking on Wednesday of Em Samolewicz, who was killed on Third Avenue and 35th Street on July 29. He wondered aloud what might have been, “if we had gotten this done sooner.” Perhaps if there had been a bike lane on Fourth Avenue, Samolewicz might have been riding her bike on that avenue instead of Third Avenue, he speculated. “Every project is probably saving lives.”

OPINION “PORTLAND HAS FALLEN”

I

do not understand Portland, Oregon Mayor Ted Wheeler. Multiple times over the past year, he has witnessed physical violence and property damage in his city, mostly at the hands of the far left (I consider terrorist) group known as Antifa. His reaction has been focused on containment and/ or keeping opposing groups separated. If I were a citizen of Portland, I would not wonder why they keep coming back. I would have difficulty understanding how local prosecutors working with police could not make the local environment toxic for a return. Organized groups swinging clubs, squirting pepper spray, throwing objects and throwing punches, for that matter, should be arrested en masse inasmuch as they are a violent mob. E ven t he li b era l

E

government of New York City would not put up with it, as we saw during Occupy Wall Street when protesters made an effort to close down the Brooklyn Bridge. From what I have seen, the Portland PD is a professional law enforcement organization that has done an extraordinary effort in tolerating abuse thrown at its members, so it must be police management and the city’s leadership that is keeping them from doing their jobs. The state of Oregon allows for the recall of elected officials. The mayor of Portland and, I suspect, other city elected officials should be recalled. *** The more you read on the Israel government blocking Congressmembers IIhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering Israel, the

more you will conclude that it made the right choice. Frankly, I was not certain when I first heard of the action a week or so ago. After all, these are members of our Congress and Israel is an ally. Allies do not treat United States government officials in this manner, even if these officials have shown zero support for them. As more information became public, I now believe that Omar and Tlaib are not fit to be representing our nation abroad. Their primary interest never seems to be in our nation. Omar and Tlaib’s primary interest in visiting Israel, it would appear, was to argue the cause of another foreign entity — the Palestinians — not hear what the Israel government had to say.

leven times. That’s how many times Eric Garner said, “I can’t breathe.” Five years, one month, and two days. That’s how many days Officer Daniel Pantaleo remained a member of the NYPD following the events of July 17, 2014, when he caused the death of Eric Garner. Saying the arresting officer caused this death isn’t just a personal opinion. It was the official ruling of the city Medical Examiner’s Office when it ruled Garner’s death a homicide that resulted from the chokehold used to take him to the ground two weeks earlier. The same chokehold that NYPD Internal Affairs determined warranted disciplinary action against the officer in this case since use of the maneuver is prohibited. The same chokehold that a disciplinary hearing

judge stated this past June, “fell so far short of objective reasonableness that this tribunal found it to be reckless — a gross deviation from the standard of conduct established for a New York City police officer.” The Police Department banned chokeholds more than 20 years prior to the death of Garner because of their potential lethality. The NYPD had made this revision to its patrol guide because it recognized that tactics with an increased potential to kill someone should be specifically forbidden during arrests. There are people who say that Eric Garner is the only person responsible for his own death, claiming he committed a crime and then resisted arrest. But such a view is completely devoid of any context or sense of proportionality, which

If Garner was selling loose cigarettes on that summer night in 2014, it was a crime, but one that generally results in a summons. The reason selling loosies is illegal is because they are considered untaxed and in New York, the state with the highest tax on cigarettes in the nation, the state’s losses due to the sale of untaxed cigarettes each year measure in the billions. When Officer Pantaleo made the decision to make an arrest, Mr. Garner’s

Congress need to settle down and begin looking at the world from the perspective of American congressmembers. Then, if a foreign power blocks them for what from that power’s perspective are very good reasons, Americans can come to their defense. As it stands now, Israel was correct and America should stand behind the decision. *** A report was issued last week indicating that all New York State casinos established since the state Constitution allowed for them are losing money with plans to cut staff and request regulatory changes. This does not include the Indian casinos or some of the Racinos such as Aqueduct which have cut

out a place in the gambling market years ago. The governor and the legislature were warned, but for many, such as lobbyists, hitting the jackpot had nothing to do with playing a game. It was all about getting the law changed. You do not need a degree in economics to realize what happened. There is an oversaturation of casinos in the state and there is too much coemption from out of state. New York State casino companies want internet gambling to bail them out. That might save their investors, but it will do little in the long run for an industry that by its very nature was going to have serious limitations in maintaining profitability.

MATTER OF FACT

should definitely be taken into consideration when the situation involves somebody losing his or her life. The fact is, a different decision or two could have prevented a man from losing his life.

COMMON SENSE

BY JAY BROWN

resistance was limited to saying, “Please just leave me alone.” When an attempt was made to handcuff Garner, he raised his hands above his head. At that point, Pantaleo applied the prohibited chokehold. In announcing his decision to fire Daniel Pantaleo on August 19, Police Commissioner James O’Neill explained that every time he watches the video of this event, he says to himself, “Don’t do it. Don’t do it”… about the decisions made by both Officer Pantaleo and Mr. Garner. The fact is, a different decision or two could have prevented a man from losing his life.

That is why chokeholds are not permitted. Because an offense that typically results in a summons shouldn’t escalate to a point where someone is killed. Because a man pleading not to be arrested shouldn’t lead to the immediate use of a potentially deadly maneuver by one of two officers engaging with him, when just 30 seconds later there were seven more members of the NYPD available to assist with the situation. Being a police officer is a difficult job. It can be dangerous. But it is a job that someone chooses to take. A job that empowers someone with authority and great responsibility.

Acknowledging that does not amount to a hatred or lack of respect for all who choose this profession. Police officers are human beings. They are not infallible. They possess biases. If members of law enforcement never violated any rules, there wouldn’t be internal affairs departments within every force. In a time when we have seen examples of officers overstepping, often with deadly consequences, it is imperative that those who do, be held accountable for their actions. Respecting those who choose to serve and protect while holding them to the highest standards are not incongruent concepts.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Successful Fifth Ave. BID gets $300K grant to bolster pro-small business efforts Meanwhile, Third Avenue leaders seek much-needed Business ‘Investment’ District

Bay Ridge Fifth Avenue BID Executive Director Amanda Zenteno. Photo courtesy of Amanda Zenteno

Word went forth this week from Bay Ridge Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District Executive Director Amanda Zenteno that the 12-year-old BID is welcoming two new “grant-funded staff members.” “The BID is excited to welcome Sarah Aita and Michael Devigne to the team,” Zenteno said. “Sarah joined as a small business services Neighborhood 360 Fellow focusing on merchant engagement and resources, and Michael comes by way of an SBS Avenue NYC grant.” Formed more than a decade ago, the Fifth Avenue BID came into existence just a year or so before it was hit with the full impact of what we now know as the Great Depression of 2008. Instead of cursing the darkness of the economic gloom that had set over the nation, leaders on Fifth Avenue such as Basil Capetanakis, Jim Clark, Sandy Vallas, Pat Condren and a handful of others opted to take action: They spent more than a year launching and organizing the BID and were better positioned to handle the most serious fiscal crisis we’ve had in almost 90 years. The city now has almost 75 BIDS and the facts

Bay Ridge Center sets Aug. 29 focus group meeting The Bay Ridge Center, one of the borough’s leading senior event hubs, is holding a focus group session on Aug. 29 at 6 p.m. at a new outreach office located at 7609 Third Ave. The center is expanding services here and its leaders want to hear from members

of Bay Ridge’s Naturally Occurring Retirement Community. There will be refreshments and giveaways, a spokesperson said. For further information, contact the center’s director of senior services, Cathy King, at 718-748-0650 ext. 105.

Fifth Ave. BID opens new office The Bay Ridge Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District team is doing the challenging detail work that will enable its members to take advantage of up-to-date internet merchandising — a key to small business survival in an age where local entrepreneurs realize they need the strength of numbers to compete with the undertaxed mail-order behemoths like Amazon. Pictured (left to right) are IT Systems Office Administrator Elizabeth Lovejoy, Avenue NYC Commercial Revitalization Program Manager Michael Devigne, Executive Director Amanda Zenteno and Neighborhood 360 Fellow Sara Aita. Photo courtesy of Amanda Zenteno show that these should really be called Business “Investment” Districts because they are able to draw broad support, even from many owners and shopkeepers who had never paid dues or helped finance cleanups or other positive endeavors.

Third Avenue BID effort moving ahead

Aware of the many advantages a BID brings to a shopping area, and having spent the last 25 years doing volunteer service, attorney Bob Howe, who serves as president of the Merchants of Third Avenue BusinessCivic Association, and a broad-based steering committee are hard at work with hopes of having their own “investment” district up and running in the very near future. “The achievements of Amanda, whose staff has increased to four with the funded hiring of Sara and Michael, is inspirational,” Howe said. “Working with Jim, Basil, Sandy and their volunteer team, she has steered invaluable services and programs to Fifth Avenue, setting a good example for Third Avenue businesspeople and property owners.” Zenteno, working with the Fifth Avenue board, has made good use of the various options available to BIDs — generous options that are not available to even the borough’s top volunteer business-civic organizations

like the Merchants of Third Avenue. “In addition to the current services provided by the BID, which include seven days of sanitation, security, avenue beautification and events, the BID will now offer direct web marketing assistance for BID merchants,” Zenteno announced. With the additional $300,000, the Fifth Avenue BID will be in a position to do what Howe wants to do on Third Avenue: provide effective and sophisticated advertising and merchandising internet support to all of its merchant members. “Merchants will have the opportunity to work with a marketing consultant to create websites, social media promotions and business branding,” Zenteno said. “All of these services will be free of charge for Fifth Avenue BID merchants through the Avenue NYC grant.” “Local businesses must have an effective web operation if they are to survive,” Howe emphasized. “Every Third Avenue operation would have cost-free web marketing expertise ready to do whatever needs to be done to expand its customer base. Individual stores are no match for giants like Amazon, but with the resources a BID will bring to Third Avenue, every member would have a chance to reach new and profitable markets instantly.”

Steering Committee members and Third Avenue BID supporters pose following a recent productive planning session in Bay Ridge.

How Dyker man with rare cancer beat the odds BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

L

ouis Battaglia feels lucky to be alive. Battaglia, a 58-yearold Dyker Heights resident, was diagnosed with a rare form of stomach cancer. After lots of prayers from friends and family and lots of help from doctors at NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn, he’s on the road to recovery. “Many people go years dealing with stomach pain without seeing a doctor, and sometimes it’s too late to do anything. I’m so grateful that wasn’t the case with me,” he said in a statement. What’s more, Battaglia didn’t have to undergo debilitating chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Dr. Camilo Correa, a general surgical oncologist at NYU Langone, saved Battaglia’s life by performing just one operation to remove the cancerous tissue. Correa used both traditional surgical techniques and robotic surgery to reduce recovery time for his patient. Battaglia had Stage 4 Leiomyosarcoma, a cancer that accounts for less than one percent of all adult cancers in the U.S. The cancer had also entered his liver. “It was a malignant tumor involving part of the liver,” said Correa, who completed a fellowship in complex surgical oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering

Battaglia, who works in sales at P.C. Richard and Sons, first realized something was wrong in October of 2018 when he started having severe abdominal pains. He initially thought it might be appendicitis. After an emergency room visit and a series of doctor

appointments, his pain persisted. He wasn’t given a diagnosis until he visited a specialist at NYU Langone. “I was told this type of cancer doesn’t get picked up so easily,” Battaglia said. Dr. Adam Goodman and the gastroenterology team

at NYU Langone diagnosed Battaglia’s cancer and used an endoscopic ultrasound to pinpoint the size and location of the tumor. Endoscopic ultrasound is also used to obtain tissue samples for biopsy, a medical advancement that reduces the number of diagnostic visits a patient has to make. “Endoscopy ultrasound is just one of a sophisticated set of tools we use to detect and evaluate gastrointestinal malignancies,” said Goodman, section chief of gastroenterology and director of endoscopy and quality at NYU Langone. Battaglia, a devout Catholic who is a member of Saint Ephrem Church on Fort Hamilton Parkway, credited prayer and the support of his older sister Rose Mauriello and his coworkers at P.C. Richard and Son with helping him through his ordeal. His brush with cancer changed his life, he said. “Dr. Correa told me to take it easy, eat healthier, and quit smoking, so I stopped cold turkey,” he said. Battaglia said he plans to support other cancer patients by telling his story and attending group counseling sessions. “I want to spend more of my time talking to people. The best thing we can do with the time we have left is to try to treat each other with kindness and respect,” he said.
