Councilmember Levin Will Seek Tweaks to 80 Flatbush Development Plan By Lore Croghan Brooklyn Record

The City Councilmember whose opinion about the proposed 80 Flatbush development matters most is not ready to approve the project in its current form. “I would like a development that meets the needs of the city and is acceptable to the community,” Councilmember Stephen Levin, who represents Boerum Hill, told the Brooklyn Record last Tuesday. He spoke out after a City Council hearing about 80 Flatbush’s design — which calls for the construction of a skyscraper as tall as the Chrysler Building CONTINUED ON PAGE 3 in low-rise Boerum Hill. “I do not want to see a project that does not have the support of the community,” Levin told the Record. There is strong community opposition to Alloy Development’s proposed 1.1 million-square-foot 80 Flatbush Ave. project, as testimony at the City Council’s Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises hearing made clear. Levin, who is a member of the subcommittee, said during the hearing that the 80 Flatbush proposal will be his “top priority” in the coming weeks. After the hearing, he told the Record he’ll hold an intensive series of meetings with the developer and community members, both separately and together, to discuss key issues: • They will talk about project density, Levin said. Alloy is asking the city to triple the site’s existing zoning limits. • They will talk about Councilmember Stephen Levin says he will make the 80 Flatbush developEagle file photo by Mary Frost lowering the height of the ment his “top priority” in the coming weeks.



towers, Levin said. Alloy’s plans call for two towers. The one that would be the Chrysler Building’s height would be 986 feet, or 74 stories, tall. The second tower would be 38 stories tall. • They will talk about including setbacks on the State Street side of the project, Levin said. The development site’s boundaries are State Street, Third Avenue, Schermerhorn Street and Flatbush Avenue. “I’m open to compromise from all sides,” Levin told the Record. “And my understanding is the community has put forward some reasonable compromise ideas.”

Two Public Schools and Affordable Housing

It would be helpful for Alloy to win Levin;s backing. Because Alloy is asking for zoning changes for the 80 Flatbush project, there’s a public approval process that will include a vote by the full City Council. In votes such as this, City Councilmembers usually follow the lead of their colleague who reps the district where the development site is located. The 80 Flatbush project, which Alloy plans to build in partnership with the New York City Educational Construction Fund, has generated both widespread support and widespread opposition Its design includes about 900 apartments, two public schools, office and retail space and a cultural facility. Two hundred of the apartments would be permanently affordable. A nonprofit called the Fifth Avenue Committee would build and co-own them. One of the schools that would be built at 80 Flatbush would be a modern facility to house public high school Khalil Gibran International Academy. It is currently situated in a 150-year-old building on the development site. The other school planned for 80 Flatbush would be a new elementary school.

Brooklyn Law School Welcomes First-Year Students During 118th Convocation By Andy Katz

Special to Brooklyn Record

Brooklyn Law School performed its 118th convocation as more than 300 first-year students assembled on the campus; Joralemon Street courtyard on Monday before marching across Cadman Plaza to the U.S. District Court on Cadman Plaza East. The mass of students, guided by Brooklyn Law School Interim Dean and Professor of Law Maryellen Fullerton, Vice Dean Steven Dean and Dean of Admission Eulas Boyd Jr., walked behind the school;s distinctive red banner. “After my son was born, I felt as though I’d reached a glass ceiling, career-wise,” said Michael Blackmon, a University of Iowa graduate. Blackmon worked as a school teacher. “But I want do more,” he said. Passing through security comparable to 1 Police Plaza or the United Nations, students surrendered their cellphones before heading upstairs to the Eastern District Courthouse’s Ceremonial Courtroom. Extra chairs filled the gap between the spectators; gallery and bench. Portraits of stern judicial miens, many of whom were Brooklyn Law alumni, looked down on the gathering from both walls. Already present were some very special guests: Hon. Robert Katzmann, chief judge for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit; and U.S. District Judge Leo Glasser of the Eastern District of New York. Judge Glasser, 93, in addition to being a Brooklyn Law alumnus, class of 1948, had also served as dean of Brooklyn Law School from 1977 to 1981. Following Fullerton;s brief biography of Judge Glasser, which included participating in the liberation of the Dachau concentration camp during World War II, the entire courtroom rose for a standing ovation. “People have always said I’m argumentative,” said first-year student Alisha Patel. “I feel my talents are best-suited to courtrooms and the law.” Judge Katzmann said, “Your journey into the law will be renowned and consequential, because you are part of this amazing community … You will become detectives of language, clarifying what is ambiguous. And always remember to do good.”

Stacy Caplow, associate dean of professional legal education.

“Brooklyn Law really exceeds in several areas,” Fullerton told the Brooklyn Eagle. “In particular, we offer a complete legal writing program, and that’s important because letters, motions, filings, etc., are often an attorney’s first

contact with the public. We offer a fulltime legal writing staff, and our program continues on from year to year. We also excel in our clinical law program, which puts students into courtrooms, into the legal scene, working on filings and

motions, often on behalf of immigrants, asylum seekers, employees, discrimination and many other areas. Just look at the number of courtrooms within walking distance from the campus.” “I was unemployed,” said first-year Sukany Basak. “[I was] not really doing anything. Brooklyn Law was what I was looking for.” “As lawyers, it’s our job to uphold the law to the best of our ability,” said Associate Dean of Professional Legal Education Stacy Caplow. “It’s our job as teachers to provide you with the tools to reach that level, to meet that goal. Whether your course is two, three or four years, at the end you will all be different.” Of the 360 first-year students, Jordan said, “You come from 15 different countries, including Jordan, Russia, the Dominican Republic, Switzerland and France. Sixty-four percent of you speak at least three languages. Your median age is 24. Your degrees range in 62 different academic fields, with 31 of you having earned MAs, MFAs or PhDs. You’re entrepreneurs, you’re accomplished artists and athletes.” “Brooklyn Law is the gateway for women, people of color [and] the disabled,” Fullerton told the students. “Our very first class in 1901 admitted one woman. By 1916, there were 36 women in the class. Harvard Law wouldn;t admit women until 1950.” First-year student Michael Cooper, who holds a degree in political science, said, “The intellectual aspect of law appeals to me. I love to read about law, legal cases, trials. Today it;s clear that our society is legally fraught. These are very interesting times.”

Cornell Merrill Scholar Pays Tribute to High School Chemistry Teacher BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


hen Ilana Kotliar received a prestigious honor at Cornell University, she decided to share the accolade with the high school chemistry teacher who had inspired her. Kotliar, who hails from Sheepshead Bay, was named a Merrill Presidential Scholar at Cornell University. She recently graduated from the university’s College of Arts and Sciences in the top one percent of the Class of 2018. She was one of 32 graduating seniors to earn the title of Merrill Presidential Scholar. Cornell administrators invited the Merrill scholars to include a favorite teacher from their years in high school to share their big moment. Kotliar asked Susan Katzoff, her chemistry teacher at Leon M. Goldstein High School for the Sciences, to attend the awards luncheon. The high school is located on the campus of Kingsborough Community College in Manhattan Beach. Each year as part of the Merrill Presidential Scholarship program, high school teachers recommended by the student-scholars are invited to visit Cornell University for an all expenses paid, two-day trip to take part in a series of events that culminate in the awards luncheon. This year, 28 high school teachers came from all over the U.S. and countries like Canada, Singapore, India and the Netherlands. Kotliar said she chose Katzoff to share her big moment because she had a major impact on her life and outlook. The most important thing Katzoff taught her was always to put her best effort into chemistry, never to give up, she said. “She would always break down chemistry into ‘Chem Is Try.’ The idea was to throw your hat in the ring and go for it. That idea of trying and putting in the work to learn has really stuck with me,” Kotliar said in a statement. Kotliar and Katzoff, along with Thomas Ruttledge of Cornell’s Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, whom Kotliar also named as a big influence on her, were guests at the luncheon at Willard Straight Hall on campus. Cornell University Provost Michael Kotlikoff told the high school teachers

At right is Cornell University Provost Michael Kotlikoff. that they had performed an important job. “You can take pride in having influenced some of Cornell’s top

graduating seniors and in knowing that they continue to appreciate all you did for them,” Kotlikoff told teachers, according to a statement on

Cornell’s website. “On behalf of the university, I want to thank all the secondary and university teachers here today, for your dedication to bringing out the very best in our students. Congratulations on being extraordinary teachers.” The Merrill Presidential Scholars program was created by the late Philip Merrill, a 1955 Cornell graduate. The program continues to be supported by the Merrill Family Foundation. Merrill scholars are selected by the deans of their respective colleges at Cornell and are chosen on the basis of their intellectual drive, leadership abilities and potential to contribute to society Kotliar was one of nine students from the College of Arts and Sciences to receive the honor. High school teachers have been honored as part of the Merrill program since 1989.



elilah Kitsakos, a dedicated martial artist and seventh grader at William McKinley Intermediate School, took home the gold at her first four-day long Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) National Karate Tournament in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on June 27. Kitsakos, her older brother Charles, and her father, Alex Kitsakos, were at the AAU National competition in Florida, a long plane ride from their home on the Fort Hamilton Army Base. The convention center was packed with several hundred experienced martial artists. “At first I was a little intimidated. They were all doing high level stuff and it makes you humble,” said Kitsakos about her competition. “Most of the other girls knew each other and had done it before so they were comfortable. That annoyed me.” Although seemingly shy in her white gi pants and jacket, Kitsakos exudes confidence in martial arts. It’s this attitude that won her a gold medal in the offensive and defensive form Kata competition, making her

She also won a bronze medal for Kumite, the art of sparring and kicking. At the Hoteikan Dojo, at 71st Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway, she is currently a purple belt participating in the Black Belt Club, a group of kids at the dojo specially trained to become black belts. The dojo, being a few blocks from her school, is basically a second home. “I remember we were on a cruise with the family and she had a sparring competition at the dojo coming up. So we practiced with the pads on the boat,” said her father, Alex. “The

trophy she won was bigger than her.” Sensei Rebecca Carrano, Kitsakos’s teacher, has been teaching martial arts with her husband for 25 years including helping toddlers learn through their “Little Dragons” program where Kitsakos started. Carrano said, “Definitely, she [Delilah] has the skill and discipline to be a sensei. No ifs about that.” Since she was four years old, Kitsakos has been practicing her craft, and hopes to one day become a sensei and continue the legacy of the Hoteikan dojo. She believes emphatically in learning how to protect yourself so that you can in turn protect others.

he schools in District 21 in Southwest Brooklyn have student populations that include large numbers of immigrants from Asia, Eastern Europe and other farflung places around the globe. So perhaps it’s fitting that the new president of the district’s Community Education Council (CEC) is an immigrant whose love for her adopted country and curiosity about its school system propelled her career forward. Anna Lembersky, who was recently elected by her fellow CEC members to serve as their president for the 20182019 school year, is originally from Ukraine. “I was born in Kiev,” she told this newspaper in a phone interview.

New Outpatient Diagnostic Center and Women's Health Imaging Suite Debuts BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


fter the devastation of Superstorm Sandy, NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island is back and better than ever. On Wednesday, Aug. 22, it marked the opening of a new state-of-the-art outpatient diagnostic center and women’s health imaging suite. “This is a great thing for the community,” Thomas Melillo, director of marketing, communications and public affairs, told this paper. “We’re going to save a lot of lives and help heal a lot of people.” Peter Montanino, associate executive director, radiology/diagnostics, was thrilled that the hospital was finally dedicating the facilities. “We’re finally opening up,” Montanino said. “We’ve been official since January, 2018 and we’re opening it up as a remediation for all the Sandy destruction that we had. We are back in place with two mammography units, two radiology units, screening rooms for osteoporosis as well as dental and jaw suites.” Montanino called the new mammography unit the crown jewel of the hospital. “It will be 3-D adaptable thanks to our city councilmembers who gave us the money to be able to proceed and provide the best kind of services for patients in the southern part of Brooklyn,” he said. NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island CEO William Brown hosted the event. He explained how it has taken a long time for the hospital to recover from Hurricane Sandy and how this new suite represents the resiliency of the hospital and the community. “It’s really very symbolic,” Brown

Our DOH inspection was in January, 2018 and we passed it with flying colors.” Among those attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony were City Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, Democratic District Leader Ari Kagan, representing New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer, and Doreen Garson, representing state Sen. Marty Golden. “Coney Island Hospital is a crucial part of southern Brooklyn,” Deutsch

said. “Having this new imaging center is a great addition to the hospital. We need to make sure we continue putting the resources into the only hospital we have here in southern Brooklyn.” Deutsch cut the ribbon on the new outpatient diagnostic center and women’s health imaging suite. NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island has been a part of the fabric of the borough since it first opened in 1910.

What Do Houses Sell for in the Carroll Gardens Historic District? By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

People hold onto their wonderful rowhouses in the Carroll Gardens Historic District. Can you blame them?

You must be wondering how much the homes go for when they do get sold. We checked public records and found transaction prices of more than $3 million over the past couple years. The district includes President Street and Carroll Street blocks between Smith and Hoyt streets plus portions of Smith Street and Hoyt Street between President Street and First Place or First Street. These post-Civil War brownstones' location within a landmarked district protects them from demolition. Owners cannot alter their exteriors without the city Landmarks Preservation Commission's permission. These homes are very picturesque, thanks in part to unusually deep front yards with lovely gardens. See related story.

Who puts the “garden” in Carroll Gardens? Every homeowner in the historic district. Throughout this hot and humid summer, residents of the Carroll Gardens Historic District's stunning brownstone blocks have kept their fleurs flourishing. Shrubs and tall trees on their properties add luxuriant foliage to the scenery. Grassy lawns grow here and there. Thanks to the gardeners' dedication, the landmarked district's streetscapes are Instagram-worthy. Take a look at the photo we took outside 326A President St. facing in the direction of Smith Street. There are flowers in profusion. In a photo taken outside 299A Carroll St. facing away from Hoyt Street, brownstones and gardens seem to stretch to infinity. Fab flowers can be found all over the place. For instance, the gardens at 318 President St. and at 338 President St. are full of late-summer blossoms. Ivy tumbles over the front wall at 298A Carroll St. See for additional pix we snapped of the glorious gardens.

A Shout-Out to Richard Butts

* The owner of 325 Smith St. on the corner of President Street is converting the rowhouse into a mixed-use building. It will have commercial space in the cellar and on the first

Those of us who love strolling through brownstone neighborhoods and staring at flowers owe a debt of gratitude to Richard Butts. He's a mid-19th-century surveyor who mapped out lots in Carroll Gardens with front yards that are 33.5 feet deep. He's mentioned in the city Landmarks Preservation Commission's 1973 designation report about the Carroll Gardens Historic District. Properties on the President Street and Carroll Street blocks between Smith and Hoyt streets, which constitute the historic district, were also mapped out using Butts' idea about having deep front yards. On these blocks, the front yards are 25 to 39 feet deep — providing lots of room for folks with green thumbs to do their thing. There are 160-plus buildings in the historic district. The landmarked rowhouses are mostly brownstones. Some are late Italianate in style. Others are French Neo-Grec.

He authored “Old Brooklyn Heights: New York 's First Suburb,” an all-important book that helped Brooklyn Heights residents get their neighborhood designated as New York City's very first historic district.

A Shout-Out to Charles Carroll

Through these fenced-in flowers, you can catch a glimpse of 259 Carroll St., which changed hands in March.

Come See the Fine Flora in the Carroll Gardens Historic District — Continued from page 24INB — One of the architectural history experts who presented the case for the Carroll Gardens Historic District to the Landmarks Preservation Commission was Clay Lancaster.

But back to Carroll Gardens. The Carroll Gardens Historic District's designation report says house construction in the district started at the end of the 1860s and wrapped up in the early 1880s. Development was spurred by the creation of Carroll Park, which is on the opposite side of Smith Street from the historic-district blocks. The builder-developers who constructed the houses in the historic district were William Bedell and other members of his family and John Layton. The park's name honors Maryland's signer of the Declaration of Independence, Charles Carroll. We mention this since Green-Wood Cemetery and other venerable institutions commemorate the 1776 Battle of Brooklyn every August. The park's builders chose Carroll's name as a reminder of the Maryland 400, who took a heroic stand at the Old Stone House in Gowanus during the Battle of Brooklyn. They were appallingly outnumbered but fought to the death. Their self-sacrifice enabled Colonial troops to retreat safely.

Previously, the property was purely residential. The owner purchased the property for $3.26 million in 2014, Finance Department records show. A historical note gleaned from the 1973 designation report about the Carroll Gardens Historic District: In the mid-1870s, the office of developer-builder William Bedell was next door at 327 Smith St. He constructed many of the houses in the historic district.

Bedell built the entire row of houses on the odd-numbered side of Smith Street from President to Carroll streets between 1872 and 1873. • Neighboring 329 Smith St. sold for $3.2 million in 2016, Finance Department records show.

William Bedell built this brownstone in 1872 on land he bought from Hartford, Connecticut's Phoenix National Bank, the historic-district designation report says. • Also in March, 270 Carroll St. changed hands, Finance Department records indicate. The price was $3.45 million. In June, the new owner filed a Buildings Department permit application to convert the four-family rowhouse into a single-family home.

Brooklyn Real Estate Financing Faces Frenzy Of Activity Amid Maturing Loans, Dodd-Frank Revision By Matthew Dzbanek, Director – Capital Services

David Baruch,

Senior Analyst – Investment Research

The U.S. economy has gained considerable momentum in recent months, paving the way for the Federal Reserve to continue tightening monetary policy 2018. While rising borrowing costs could suppress loan origination, an avalanche of maturing mortgages, revisions made to the Dodd-Frank Act, and a growing pool of eager, smaller lenders should keep borrowing activity buoyant in Brooklyn. A tight labor market and firming inflation has the Fed confident that the economy can withstand the impact of higher rates. Gross domestic product grew by 4.1% in the second quarter, significantly above the first quarter’s 2.2% and the strongest growth since the third quarter of 2014. After raising rates for a second time this year in June, the Fed has penciled two more rate hikes in 2018, with the next likely to emerge at its September meeting. This should put upward pressure on rates and eventually lead to even higher borrowing costs on consumer and business loans. The 10-year Treasury yield, which influences everything from mortgage rates to corporate loans, has hovered around 3% in recent months as political turmoil overseas joined concerns that tariffs between the U.S. and its major trading partners will slow global growth. These trade tariffs should put additional pressure on Treasuries as inflation erodes the value of the fixed payments made on the bonds. At between 4.0%-4.5%, interest rates on five-year multifamily loans are roughly 50-75 basis points higher than where they were a year ago. Despite the uptick, however, interest rates remain historically low, which should keep the landscape for lending favorable. Demand has been particularly strong for multifamily properties in Brooklyn in 2018 as its growing appeal as a “worklive-play” destination attracts both private and institutional investors. Brooklyn enjoyed banner activity in the first half, recording $1.54 billion in sales, the highest of any sub-market, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ “Multifamily Quarter In Review.” For our exclusive report, click on While Brooklyn’s lofty dollar volume was mostly attributable to the $904.61 million Starrett City Portfolio, the largest sale year-to-date in New York City, all three volume metrics increased on an annual basis and the 39 transactions comprised of 79 buildings were the highest of any sub-market. In 2013 – the beginning of the most recent real estate cycle – Brooklyn saw 1,059 transactions consisting of 1,440

properties totalling $4.3 billion in gross consideration, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ Investment Research Division. These properties were likely financed by acquisition loans, with the 5-year maturity the most common at the time. It has therefore been a busy year for Brooklyn because as loans mature, investors typically choose to refinance or sell their properties, and the buyers of these assets often seek financing to fund their purchases. Brooklyn, the most populous borough, has dominated commercial lending activity in recent months. In the month of May it snared 42% of all of New York City’s transactions. Moreover, seven of the top eight neighborhoods for financing were situated in the borough, with the zip codes encompassing South Bushwick/East New York; East Williamsburg/North Bushwick/ North Bedford-Stuyvesant; and Prospect Lefferts Gardens/Flatbush/East Flatbush ranking in the top three, according to the Commercial Observer, citing data from lending database Actovia. In addition, these three areas comprised 18% of all New York City’s mortgages.

undoubtedly become more expensive to finance real estate transactions, loosened regulations should open the lending spigot wider. With the guidance of

an experienced mortgage broker, an investor can obtain financing via smaller institutions that are more than eager to extend credit at competitive rates.

Changing Landscape Of Lenders

Real estate financing has picked up this year as the investment sales market gained momentum. During 1H18, Brooklyn’s entire market saw 526 transactions consisting of 685 properties, totaling approximately $4.28 billion in gross consideration, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ “Brooklyn 2018 Mid-Year Sales Report.” For our exclusive report, click on report/report-APA-Brooklyn-mid2018Sales-Report In 2015, banks pulled back after federal banking regulators cautioned them about overexposure to the multifamily asset class and its impact on their financial stability. Lenders also erred on the side of caution due to the Dodd-Frank Act, which was put in place as a safeguard in the aftermath of last decade’s recession. Lenders tended to be conservative about the amount of assets they were servicing and holding on their balance sheet due to increased government scrutiny. However, following a similar bill that passed in March, the U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to dismantle part of the Dodd-Frank Act. The bill relaxes regulations for all but the largest U.S. banks, raising the level at which banks face the tight oversight spelled out in Dodd-Frank to $250 billion in assets, up from the current $50 billion. Due to this increase, banks are expected to become much more active in the lending arena. As more and more people call Brooklyn home, institutional and private investors will likely continue to seek mortgage financing in New York City’s biggest borough. While it has

Chief Clerk in B’klyn Criminal Term Gave Up a Career in Art for 45 Years in the Courts

Matthew D'Emic, administrative judge for the Supreme Court, Criminal Term, and Michael Magliano (center), chief of public safety for the NYS Unified Court System. Eagle file photo by Mario Belluomo arraignments. like celebrities, here like other courts do, won an award given out by the First By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn

In a courthouse, it is the judges who make all of the decisions, but everyone who works in the courts knows that the people who actually run the daily tasks are the clerks. In Brooklyn’s Supreme Court, Criminal Term, the person running the show is Chief Clerk Daniel Alessandrino. Alessandrino has served the court system for 45 years now and has been the chief clerk for the past eight, but his is an illustrious career that might not have ever happened if he had followed in his father’s footsteps and become a commercial artist instead. “My father was a commercial artist, and I was an illustrator who thought that he was going to follow is his footsteps,” Alessandrino recalled. “But that was, and still is, a very tough industry to get into. Once I didn’t get accepted into Cooper Union, that sort of faded away.” Alessandrino, who was born in Manhattan and raised in Brooklyn, instead went on to apply for a job as a court officer and started his extended career in Brooklyn’s Criminal Court at 120 Schermerhorn St. as a 20-year-old starting in 1973. That was just his first of now nine official titles the St. Francis and St. John’s University graduate has held while working in the courts. Of course, that’s only nine titles and unofficially has served in many capacities. Some of Alessandrino’s other titles included clerk in the Kings County Family Court, motion clerk in the New York County Surrogate’s Court, a clerk in Brooklyn’s night court, supervising investigator for the application verification unit, chief court officer of the family court citywide, assistant director for court security services inside NYC, director of personnel for the NYC Criminal Court and liaison for the city to handle the writs on the

“Every time I talk about 45 years, my immediate reaction is, ‘Oh my God, that’s such a long time,’ but it went by like a flash,” Alessandrino said. “I think it’s because I like what I did. It was a lot of variety, I did everything from security to investigations, to fiscal work, to human resource work. It really broadens to scope of what you are able to do and it can be a lot of fun. I’m still having fun. That’s why I’m not retired yet.” He got the job as chief clerk in 2010 after he had been working as a liaison between the courts and the Mayor’s Office for Criminal Justice. He explained that job often put him in contact with then administrative judge of the criminal term, Hon. Barry Kamins. When James Imperatrice retired, Kamins believed that Alessandrino was an easy choice for the position. “When you’re hiring a chief clerk, you’re looking for someone who is knowledgeable about the court system and who has as much experience as possible,” Kamins said. “You want someone trustworthy and reliable, and Dan fills all of those categories. “He’s one of the most competent people I’ve met in the court system,” Kamins continued. “I remembered him from my days as a defense attorney when he was a court officer as someone who has always been well liked and respected by judges and court staff.” As chief clerk, Alessandrino is the top non-judicial court employee who is in charge of running the court on a day-today basis. If there is a blizzard, hurricane or other emergencies, he has to determine if the court opens or not, and how it will operate. If there are changes in policy, he is the person to help implement them. When there are layoffs or transfers, he has to be the one responsible to break the news. All of this, in one of the busiest criminal courthouses in the nation. “We don’t get the high-profile people,

but we do get violent and serious crimes that are high-profile cases,” Alessandrino said. “It’s an interesting place to work with a lot going on. It’s very serious work here and I’m in a support role for the judges.” Despite 45 years in the court system, Alessandrino said that he doesn’t expect to retire soon. If he does retire, he won’t go back to art work. Despite the fact that he

Department for his work, he has given it up. Instead, he’ll stick with his current hobbies of fishing and archery. “If I had plans to do something, to travel or to move somewhere, I might retire, but my wife and I don’t want to be away from our two grandchildren for very long and, honestly, I’m still having fun and learning something new every day.”

Sculpture Memorializing Holocaust Victims Unveiled at Kingsborough Community College Bykov Family Commissioned the Artwork To Continue Teaching Lessons Of Holocaust By Francesca Norsen Tate INBRooklyn

Assemblymember Steven Cymbrowitz, a Brooklyn Democrat, and Kingsborough Community College’s Interim President Peter Cohen joined forces last week to unveil a statue commemorating victims of the Holocaust. The statue, titled Infinity, was donated to the college by the Bykov family. The Aug. 13 ceremony featured a memorial candle lighting with Russian-American veterans. Among those offering remarks were Cymbrowitz, Cohen, Dr. Stanley Bykov and a number of elected officials, including Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams. Rabbi Andy Bachman, also participated. “The Bykov family commissioned

the work and made the generous donation to Kingsborough, which is making it a permanent part of the Holocaust resource center that the school is in the process of building,” wrote Cymbrowitz in a social media post, an excerpt of which his office made available to INBrooklyn. Speakers emphasized the importance of Holocaust education, to make sure the atrocities of this period are never forgotten. Bykov, an ophthalmologist, and his father Mitya spoke of their family’s commitment to keeping the memory of the Holocaust alive and explained the significance behind the sculpture. Bachman recited the Mourner’s Kaddish and described his recent trip to Belarus and Lithuania, where he bore witness to the crimes committed against Jews during World War II. Also attending were Assemblymember Helene Weinstein, City Councilmember Mark Treyger and Ari Kagan from New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer’s office.

Union Temple Begins New Chapter With Innovative Approach to Worship The 170-year-old Union Temple of Brooklyn, which stands at a crossroads with the retirement of its beloved rabbi — Dr. Linda Henry Goodman, who served Union Temple for more than a quarter of a century — is entering a year of innovations. Union Temple will hold an open house to introduce the community to its new chapter. Rabbi Mark Sameth, the congregation’s newly appointed interim rabbi, observed, “The Jewish world has changed. We’re honoring our past, and also experimenting with new modalities.” Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim was founded in 1848 by German and Alsatian immigrants in what was then the Village of Williamsburg. Its congregants abided by traditional Jewish Orthodoxy. Another synagogue, Temple Israel, was established in 1869 by a congregation following the Reform Movement. Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise had recently brought this community to America. A transformation evolved over the years, as Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim also adopted the reforms of Rabbi Wise. These two temples merged in 1921. Sameth previously led an experimental congregation for 18 years — Pleasantville Community Synagogue in Westchester County. The Forward named him one of “America’s Most Inspiring Rabbis.” Sameth was attracted to Union Temple’s diversity, and calls it a place “where Jews, their families and friends unite for shalom.” “Reform congregations are attracting folks who grew up Orthodox and Conservative, Roman Catholic and Mainline Protestant. Where do people of such diverse backgrounds meet? For me, the place of true meeting begins in Avodah Shebalev, ‘Service of the Heart,’” said Sameth. “We need to gather, to experience the felt sense of our shared humanity, share our collective wisdom, and buoy one another as we engage with a profoundly

challenging, deeply broken world. Union Temple supports and makes a space for that.” Sameth’s heartfelt, musical services build on a long tradition of music at Union Temple, but take it in new, unexpected directions. Also new this year are a monthly Meditation Shabbat, a Friday night scholar-in-residence-style lecture series, and something called “Pajama Shabbat” for the under-six crowd. Union Temple’s Sept. 7 open house begins at 5 p.m. with refreshments, and provides an opportunity to meet Sameth and members of the community. Attendees can learn about Union Temple’s many offerings. Kids are welcome; they will participate in a supervised Shabbat-related arts and crafts project. There will also be a lively service for children of all ages and their families at the temple’s First Friday Family Shabbat/Pajama Shabbat and potluck. RSVP: info@ or 718-638-7600 ext. 1. Walk-ins are also welcome! Union Temple of Brooklyn is at 17 Eastern Parkway at Grand Army Plaza, steps from the IRT subway station on the 2 and 3 lines. High Holiday tickets are free, but must be reserved. Open House Friday Sept. 7 at 5 p.m.

Volunteer Lawyers Hold CLE to Help Lawyers Represent Kids in Immigration Proceedings

The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) hosted a continuing legal education (CLE) seminar with an attorney from the Door;s Legal Services Center at Abrams Fensterman in Downtown Brooklyn last Wednesday in order to prepare lawyers to represent children in immigration proceedings. The immigration training seminar is not something VLP normally handles, but it often will invite attorneys from outside organizations to conduct CLEs on topics that may interest its members. “We are a nonprofit in Brooklyn that works with low-income residents in a number of different civil, legal practice areas including bankruptcy, family law, foreclosure and elder law,” said Sarah Burrows, pro bono manager

at VLP. “We also partner with other organizations throughout the city to offer our volunteers opportunities outside of the scope of what we normally do. “Attorneys who are interested in taking on a case through The Door, they are looking for volunteer attorneys to work with children throughout their case, and also opportunities and a need for volunteers to work with children just in family court.” Attorney Kaavya Viswanathan, who has presented CLEs in conjunction with VLP in the past, represented The Door and broke down everything that the nonprofit covers. The Door serves approximately 10,000 young people every year, and the Legal Services Center helps nearly 1,200 kids annually. “Our mission is to provide holistic services for young people ages 12-24,” Viswanathan said. “We really try to be

a one-stop shop for everything a young person may need in their lives. The legal need is just one part. “We have a health center on site, we have counseling services, we have career and education services,” Viswanathan continued. “They can come in and get a meal. The idea is that we serve the whole person and we acknowledge that even if your legal case is going well you still need support in other parts of your life.” Viswanathan pointed out that there is no right to counsel in immigration proceedings even when it comes to children and said that there are real concerns for their rights to due process as a result. Children without representation are five times more likely to be deported, according to The Door. “There really are stories and instances where a case worker has carried a 2- or 3-year-old into immigration court, who either doesn’t speak or

doesn’t speak English,” she said. “So, there are a lot of concerns about due process when children are involved in immigration court proceedings and it’s one of the reasons why getting pro bono counsel in these cases is so critical. If a child doesn’t speak English, it is impossible for them to defend themselves.” The training covered common forms of legal relief available to children, such as the Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and asylum. Viswanathan explained how to pursue relief before state family court, immigration court and also during the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Attorneys who attended last Wednesday’s CLE and agreed to take on a case pro bono received two free credits.

The Women’s Bar Association Helped Michele Mirman Early and Late in Her Career By Rob Abruzzese Brooklyn Record

Bar associations play different roles for attorneys, from personal and professional to helping some advocate for others and their communities; and for some, it is merely a way for them to keep up with their continuing legal education credits. For Michele Mirman, the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association helped her as a young female attorney breaking into what was then a largely male-dominated profession. It also helped her nearly 40 years later in life when she needed an outlet to help her get through personal issues. “It was so important for me to become president of the Women’s Bar because it put me in a position where I could help and mentor other women. To teach them to support themselves, teach them about jobs, about negotiating, writing resumes, personal finance and investing.” Mirman, who is a third-generation Brooklynite, grew up in East Flatbush and went to James Madison High School before she went off to Sarah Lawrence College and later Antioch School of Law. Influenced by her parents, Mirman became an activist and advocate at an early age. “I was very active politically from grade school onward,” Mirman said. “We raised money for the freedom schools down south when I was 10 years old. In high school, I demonstrated every year against the Vietnam War. In college, I did the same thing, and then I became interested in prisoners’ rights.” She had initially intended to go to Columbia University to become a writer, but was convinced by her dad to apply for Antioch in Washington, D.C. instead. When she got there, it was a major eyeopening moment for her because Washington was so different from Brooklyn and the school attracted people from all backgrounds. “I’m a girl from Brooklyn who had never been south of Philadelphia ever, so Washington, D.C. was like the deep South for me,” said Mirman, who was still just 20 years old when she started law school. “When I started going around Washington and talking to people, nobody understood what I was saying because I talked so fast and they were so slow. More than once someone had to say to me, ‘Honey, can you slow it down?’” While in law school, Mirman took part in a clinical program that represented local prisoners in disciplinary hearings. It was a first-of-its-kind program where previously prisoners had no due process rights and Mirman represented them at hearings. In her experience, that program didn;t do much to help prisoners, but it did inspire her to step up her advocacy for prisoner’s rights.

When Michele Mirman’s husband died in 2014, members of the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association helped to provide her with an outlet. Pictured from left: Hon. Marsha Steinhardt; Hon.

Michele Mirman, right, was recently honored by the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association and its current president Carrie Anne Cavallo for her work as president of the organization. After law school, Mirman moved back to Brooklyn and began working at Spatt & Bauman, P.C. where she tried commercial and personal injury cases. In 1980, she joined her future husband, Paul S. Mirman, in his Brooklyn law firm where she became the first woman to get a multimillion-dollar verdict. In 1991, she opened her own firm, Michele S. Mirman, P.C. and later Mirman, Markovitz & Landau, P.C., and moved to

Manhattan. When Mirman first started out in the courts, she was one of the few female attorneys trying cases. It wasn’t easy, she explained, because she often had to deal with men talking about or to her in inappropriate ways, or even worse, physically assaulting her. At the time there was really no recourse either. “I found some women law secretaries and I went and talked to them and they

helped me,” she said. “They spoke to people on my behalf because there was no mechanism to complain or a sexual harassment board. They also encouraged me to join the BWBA.” Over the years, Mirman explained that she got busier, and BWBA got smaller. Eventually, she left. But when her husband died in 2014, it was the same bar association that helped her through it. “Marsha Steinhardt and Helene Blank had been my friends forever,” Mirman said, referring to two BWBA past presidents. “They came to my wedding and were my friends for years. When my husband died, they came to his shiva. “I said, ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do now.’ He had multiple sclerosis and was sick for a long time. Then all of a sudden part of my life disappeared. They said, ‘Don’t worry, we have something for you to do.’ The next thing I know, I was chairing the Christmas party.” Mirman didn;t stop at the Christmas party, though. She quickly became a board member and helped organize various events. Eventually, she became a vice president and moved up to become president. This was not just an outlet for her, but a mechanism for her to help and mentor other women like she had been helped by BWBA years before. “It was important to me because I feel that you have to promote women in jobs,” Mirman said. “The more women who have important jobs and make money, the better it is for women and families. My husband was also very prowomen and I know that it sounds stupid, but I feel like I’m doing something that my husband would be proud of.”
