Southwest Brooklyn Marine Transfer Station to Export Waste BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


f ter yea rs of controversy and protest rallies, the city has quietly opened a trash processing plant in Bensonhurst. On Oct. 1, the Department of Sanitation (DOS) began operating the Southwest Brooklyn Marine Transfer Station on the waterfront of Gravesend Bay near Shore Parkway and Bay 41st Street in Bensonhurst, the site where a city-owned garbage incinerator stood for decades until it was closed during the Giuliani administration. The station is expected to handle approximately 700-900 tons of trash a day from surrounding Brooklyn neighborhoods, a DOS spokesperson told this newspaper via email. The facility will accept the trash and then load the debris on barges for shipment to an out-of-state site, according to officials. The new plant, which took four years to construct, is part of the New York’s Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP), a plan approved by the City Council in 2006 to spread the burden of trash disposal around the five boroughs and move away from the concept of having a tiny fraction of the city’s communities bearing the responsibility. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation signed off on the plan.

“The SWMP is a fair, five-borough plan to sustainably manage New York City’s waste and offer flexibility and resiliency in the case of a natural disaster or other emergency,” DOS Press Secretary Dina Montes told this newspaper. “It provides New York City with new world class infrastructure and mandates a shift from waste export by long-haul truck to a system of marine and rail transfer stations spread throughout the five boroughs. In total, the SWMP will reduce truck traffic associated with waste export by more than 60 million miles per year, including more than five million miles in and around New York City. It will slash greenhouse gas emissions by 34,000 tons annually.” Since the start of construction in 2014, the Southwest Brooklyn Marine Transfer Station has been the target of protest demonstrations by led elected officials, including Assemblymember William Colton, a Democrat representing Gravesend and parts of Bensonhurst, Councilmember Mark Treyger, a Democrat representing Coney Island, Gravesend and parts of Bensonhurst, and community residents who charged that the facility would increase truck traffic on local streets, cause an increase in air pollution and release toxins into the air that they breathe. Once the trash arrives at the Southwest Brooklyn station, cranes will load the

The new waste transfer station. containers onto barges to be transported to an intermodal facility in Elizabeth, New Jersey owned by the company Waste Management. The containers will then be

transported to a rail yard, where they will be loaded onto rail cars for transport to disposal facilities in Virginia and upstate New York. In 2 0 1 7, Wa s t e

Management was awarded a $3.3 billion contract set to last for a term of 20 years to handle trash from marine transfer stations. The contract also contains two optional five-year extensions. At the time the contract was announced, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city’s system of using marine transfer stations to transport trash would be a fairer system. “For far too long, a few communities in the five boroughs have been saturated by waste transfer stations and resulting truck traffic. We are taking a huge step in shifting the burden away from those communities,” the mayor said in a statement. But not everyone is happy with the opening of

the Southwest Brooklyn Marine Transfer Station. Colton blasted the de Blasio administration over the move. “Although Mayor de Blasio may have pushed this dangerous project on our community, now we will hold him fully liable for all the negative impacts we had anticipated will occur. I promise that we will continue to fight for its final closure and we will prevail,” Colton said in a statement. Colton urged residents who live near the facility to be in the lookout for any potential problems and to report any issues to his office by calling 718-236-1598. A spokesperson for the mayor declined to comment.

Flatlands Street Named in Honor of Firefighter and Marine Veteran William J. Gormley BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM


n Saturday, a portion of Flatlands Avenue was co-named in honor of Firefighter William John Gormley, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Councilmember Jumaane Williams and state Sen. Marty Golden helped unveil the sign for the newly co-named street that will run along Flatlands Avenue from Flatbush Avenue to Avenue M. “William Gormley was emblematic of the true spirit of service – his country, his city, his community,” said Williams. “In co-naming this street today, we cement his legacy, but that legacy, that impact, was already and will always be felt by those whose lives he impacted. When we talk about the tragedy of September 11, we say ‘Never Forget.’ It’s important that we also don’t forget the long-lasting impact for those who answered the call, to support and celebrate them.” The 53-year-old Gormley joined the FDNY in 1988 and retired from the

Ladder Company 174 in East Flatbush in 2006. He was a first responder on September 11, and died on June 14, 2017 following a short battle with lung cancer. The illness was linked to his heroic actions 16 years earlier at the World Trade Center. “There are no words to describe my brother,” Gormley’s sister Kathy Khatari told this paper. “He never had a bad word for anyone. He loved kids and laughter. We know we lost him to a 9/11-related cancer but my brother would have done it all over again. He was a man with integrity and he was a true patriot and an American hero.” Golden said that it was

an honor to be part of the street naming ceremony. “On 9/11, Firefighter Gormley was called to the World Trade Center, and he worked down at the pile not only that day, but for many days after,” Golden said. “Like so many others, he was committed to trying to rescue those who might have been alive, and recover those who were lost that day. Last year, William Gormley was taken from us when he lost his battle with lung cancer, an illness connected to his heroic actions 17 years earlier at the World Trade Center. Naming this corner, which was such an important part of his life, so to remember him forever, is a most

fitting tribute.” Community activist Khatari continues to fight for those who, like her brother, lost their lives to 9/11-related illnesses. She is currently working on a memorial for those FDNY heroes at Father Kehoe Square on Flatlands Avenue. “My brother my hero, you will never be forgotten – I promise,” said Khatari. “You are the pride of Flatbush, you are a son of Brooklyn, you served your country and city with everything you had and with pride. Never forget 9/11–We will take it from here. This co-naming will be a daily reminder of what we lost on 9/11, and every day is 9/11 for us.”

Ragamuffin Parade Brightens Cloudy Bay Ridge Skies BY JOHN ALEXANDER

Calamari at 86th Street and Third Avenue. Michael Esposito and Ted Nugent, owners of Cebu restaurant at 8801 Third Avenue, were the men of the year. The Ragamuffin Parade began in October, 1966, as a small procession at Fourth Avenue and 73rd Street in which children wore their parents’ oversized clothes and looked like little ragamuffins, as they paraded around a single city block. It soon became a neighborhood tradition as the



he overcast weather did not stop folks from attending one of Bay Ridge’s most anticipated events of the year, the annual Ragamuffin Parade, which took place on Saturday and ran along Third Avenue from 76th Street to 92nd Street. Over 1,500 residents and visitors flocked to the neighborhood to watch children walk the parade route. The annual parade is sponsored by Ragamuffin, Inc. and featured thousands of colorfully costumed children dressed up as everything from superheroes like Spiderman and Wonder Woman to “Walking Dead” zombies. One adorable little boy was dressed up like the Pillsbury dough boy and a cute little girl was decked out as a sunflower butterfly. Ragamuf fin Parade Presisident Arlene Keating was happy with t u r nout . “Though the morning rain may have held some folks back, there was no shortfall of costumed children who were anxiously awaiting the start of the parade,” Keating told this paper.  “While the sun wasn’t exactly shining, once the

T he Mc K i n le y Junior High School Band marched along the parade route as did the Xaverian High School Pipes and Drums, and the Fort Hamilton High School Flute Players. Keating called the

costumes became more creative and the parade route expanded. The parade was the brainchild of the Rev. James McKenna, a priest at Our Lady of Angels Church (OLA) at 7320 Fourth Ave., and Cliff Scanlon, a Bay Ridge community leader and parishioner at OLA. “I remember marching in the Ragamuffin Parade when I was a kid,” City Councilmember Justin Brannan told this paper. “I dressed up as Luke Skywalker. I wore all black and my mom made a lightsaber out of an old shower curtain rod that we painted cobalt blue. Those were the days. To support and view the parade now as the local councilman was really special. Seeing all the kids smiling and having a great time is really what it’s all about. The Ragamuffin Parade is so unique and absolutely one of my favorite Bay Ridge traditions.”

Golden Stands by Campaign Staffer after Proud Boys Melee BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


ay Ridge state Sen. Marty Golden is resisting calls to fire a campaign worker embroiled in controversy over a melee outside a Manhattan Republican club involving members of

an alt-right group and angry leftist protesters. Michael Tobman, a spokesperson for Golden’s re-election campaign, told this newspaper that the lawmaker has no intention of firing Ian Reilly, the manager of his campaign office. “Ian Reilly is the campaign’s office manager, and

will continue to serve in that role, as he has capably and professionally for several months,” Tobman told this newspaper via email on Wednesday. In addition to his role in Golden’s campaign, Reilly is the chairperson of the executive committee of the Metropolitan

Republican Club, a venerable political organization located at 122 East 83rd St. in Manhattan that was founded in 1902. Reilly is under fire for inviting Gavin McInnes, the fiery leader of the group Proud Boys, to speak at the club on Oct. 12. The Proud Boys club is self-described as an organization of “western chauvinists,” but the group has been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an extremist group. Several fistfights broke out outside the club after McInnes’s appearance, according to the Gothamist, which reported that three arrests were made. Republicans have charged that the anti-McInnes protesters were members of Antifa, the far-left wing activist movement.

Abortion Rights Key Issue as Abbate, Mangino Debate BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


ith a new conservative majority in place in the U.S. Supreme Court following the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, abortion rights have become a focus of attention across the country as millions of Americans wait to see if the highest court in America will overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision at some point in the near future. The national issue became a local flash point in a debate between Democratic Assemblymember Peter Abbate and his Conservative opponent Rosemary Mangino in Dyker Heights on Tuesday. Describing herself as a “pro-life feminist,” Mangino said she is opposed to abortion as well as contraception. “I respect God. I will not be scared to speak out about that,” she told the audience at the debate, which was sponsored by the Dyker

Heights Civic Association and held at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Dyker Heights. “I am pro-choice and I’ve said it many times,” said Abbate. Abbate is seeking re-election on Nov. 6 in the 49th Assembly District. The district includes parts of Bensonhurst, Dyker Heights and Sunset Park. Abbate was first elected to the Assembly in 1986. Mangino ran against Abbate in 2016 and lost. There is no Republican candidate in the current race. The uphill battle Mangino faces as she tries to unseat Abbate was evident at the debate when she pointed out the incumbent has a “100 percent pro-choice voting record.” Mangino perhaps meant it as a criticism, but the audience burst into wild applause for Abbate. Mangino blasted the protest demonstrations against Kavanaugh that took place at the U.S. Capitol during and after the Senate voted to confirm him. Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh had been accused by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford of sexually assaulting her years ago when they were both in high school and the public hearing in which both Ford and Kavanaugh testified riveted the nation. “Women were screaming and yelling for the right to

kill babies,” Mangino said, dismissing the protesters. During the question and answer session, sex abuse of children was a topic. Abbate voted favor of the Child Victims Act, a bill that would extend the statute of limitations to age 50 for adults who were sex abuse victims when they were children and are now

seeking to sue their abusers in civil court for damages. Under current state law, a sex abuse survivor is prohibited from filing a lawsuit after age 23. Mangino said she would be opposed to paying damages to adults who suffered sex abuse as children. “It’s shopping money for them,” she said.

If the victims were indeed abused at the hands of Catholic priests and other adults, she asked, “Why aren’t they seeking psychological help?” Abbate preferred to use his speaking time at the debate to talk about his three-pronged approach to public service. One part of his job deals with his constitutional responsibilities, he said, such as passing bills. Another part deals with passing the state budget. “That’s an important part,” he said, adding that he works hard to secure funding in the budget to pay for local projects and programs in his district. The third part of his job is providing constituent services, Abbate said. “Literally thousands of people have come into my office,” he said. Many of his constituents are on a first-name basis with him, he said. “No one comes into my office and calls me assemblyman. They call me Peter,” he said.

Organ Donor Enrollment Day Marked at Sunset Hospital BY CHRISTINA GRANDE EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM


nleash your inner hero. On O c to b er 11, NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn and the non-profit organization LiveOnNY hosted a day-long organ donor registration event at the hospital, 150 55th Street, as part of their annual Organ Donor Enrollment Day observance. Joining them was the family of Bryan Trinidad, a young man who lost his own life at the age of 27, but — by being a donor — managed to save three others. Trinidad signed up to be an organ donor at age 22 in 2012. On September 26, 2018, he was taken to the hospital after being involved in a fist fight. After Trinidad was declared brain dead, his pancreas, both his kidneys and his liver were donated. A 68-year old woman received Trinidad’s liver, a 43-year old woman received his right kidney, and a 29-year old woman received his left kidney and

The Brooklyn Eagle, Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator hosted two well-attended health and financial fitness expos within the last two weeks, one at Dyker Beach Golf Club on Thursday, Oct. 4 and another at St. Francis College on Friday, Oct. 12. There were food, fun and freebies for those attending, along with informative booths provided by hospitals, realtors, law firms, local businesses, therapists and karate instructors. In all, there were some 25 exhibitors at each expo offering information packets, product demonstrations and all kinds of free promotional items. There were raffles, prizes galore and a 50/50 raffle. At the Dyker Beach expo, three keynote speakers delivered highly informative talks revolving around medicine and health care. NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island’s Chief Gastroenterologist Dr. John Trillo; Maimonides Medical Center’s Director, Interventional Cardiology in Cardiovascular Care Director Robert Frankel, MD; and United Healthcare and AMP Insurance Brokerage’s Sales Agent Louis Peters each presented a keynote speech. At the St. Francis expo, the keynote speakers were NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island Chief of Cardiology Dr. Nicholas E. Brodyn, SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s Director of Audiology Dr. Sal Saleh and Maimonides Medical Center’s Women’s Heart to Heart Department of Cardiology’s Director Dr. Inna Nelipovich. Accessible Dispatch, a program that connects the community to wheelchair accessible taxis all throughout the five boroughs, handed out literature about its service. “It’s not just for individuals in wheelchairs, it’s for anybody in the community who wants to use it,” Community Outreach Director Steven Williams told this paper. “You don’t have to qualify or go through a medical assessment or exam. Anybody can use it. All you need is a telephone. There are three easy ways you can access the service. You can download our app: accessibledispatchnyc, go to our website or call our dispatch line. It’s just a wonderful way to make New York City more accessible.”

Full House for Senior Health and Financial Fitness Expos in Downtown and Southern Brooklyn Continued from page 1INB Certified physical therapist Marcello Sarrica explained what makes Sarrica Physical Therapy unique. “We try to go above and beyond,” he said. “We do all one-on-one sessions unlike traditional physical therapy facilities that often double and triple-book patients. We value quality over quantity and ultimately the patient benefits from that handson, one-on-one approach.” Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care, located at 1516 Oriental Blvd. in Manhattan Beach is one of the only facilities that has private rooms facing the ocean. “It’s a 400-bedroom facility on 10 acres of land with a lot of greenery and other amenities like onsite free parking,” said Community Outreach Liaison Thomas Ryan. “And we can facilitate all rehabilitation needs.” Chiropractor Dr. Carey Skorski of Bay Ridge Holistic Health explained, “Holistic health care is a way to see what’s interfering with your health holistically so we check patients for nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, nerve interference from emotional and physical stress,” Skorski said. “And we help patients maintain their balance for better health.” Trillo’s keynote speech revolved around gastrointestinal health and prevention. He identified colon cancer as the third leading cause of cancer death in this country for both men and women equally. “We have excellent screening tests to help prevent colon cancer,” Trillo said. “There are a number of them, with the first being a colonoscopy. Everyone should have a colonoscopy starting at age 50 and every 10 years until the age of 75.” He also discussed other tests that are used to identify colon cancer for those refusing to have a colonoscopy, adding, “Some cancer screening is better than no screening at all.” He stressed the importance of being aware of and preventing the disease before it happens. “If we’re able to prevent it then we’ve done our job by giving you a longer life and better quality life,” Trillo said. Frankel said that Maimonides has a long history of heart care excellence. He reminded everyone that the first human heart transplant performed in the United States was in 1967 by Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz at Maimonides Medical Center. He also said that the pacemaker was partially developed and designed at Maimonides. “I can tell you that we have been No. 1 in interventional cardiology procedures for many, many, many years,”

Frankel said. “In fact, for the last eight years in a row we’ve been No. 1 in the entire state of New York.” Peters shifted the focus from medicine to healthcare when he spoke about new Medicare procedures. “We are Medicare specialists and we have about 1,500 Bay Ridge clients,” Peters said. “We offer every plan at our office at 77th Street and Fifth Avenue. We have 10 plans and can assist you in all of your Medicare needs.” He encouraged guests to learn more about the high deductible F Medicare supplement plan, which he called “the most amazing product out there.” He also recalled that he used to deliver the Home Reporter when he was eight. At the St. Francis expo, Dr. Sal Saleh spoke about the need to maintain healthy audiological health with the motto “hear better, feel better.” He explained that it’s not just people 60 and over who suffer hearing loss, but babies also can suffer from it. He talked about SUNY Downstate’s focus on this issue and discussed all the audiology services it provides. “Thirty-six million people suffer from hearing loss,” Saleh said. “One of the most common problems is young people using headphones and raising the volume too high in order to hear their favorite lyrics.” He also discussed the major improvements made in modern hearing aid technology. “There are now invisible devices that sync up with your iPhone,” Saleh said. “And remember, the longer you wait, the harder it is to remedy hearing loss.” Brodyn offered some fascinating life-saving tips about heart health. “Our heart is similar to a basement boiler,” Brodyn said. “It has two chambers on the top and two chambers on the bottom that pump blood to the body.” He explained that women tend to outlive men and that heart disease in women often occurs later in life. He stressed the need to use common sense and not to ignore the warning signs of heart disease. Maimonides’ Nelipovich discussed women’s risk factors for heart attacks. She offered a visual presentation detailing the various symptoms of heart failure and talked about the various heart failure programs offered at Maimonides. “We have a world-class arterial fibrillation program, an aortic aneurysm dissection program and a vascular surgery program among many others,” Nelipovich said. Other exhibitors included AARP Bay Ridge branch, AARP Bensonhurst/Ovington Chap-

ter, Advanced Hearing Center, Aetna, the Allure Group, AXA Advisors, Bay Ridge Holistic Health, Bay Ridge Vision Care, Ben Bay Realty Co. of Bay Ridge LLC, the Bensonhurst Center, Brooklyn 4U Realty, CERT, Connors and Sullivan, Eyewear Girls, Humana, Knights of Pythias, Pro Health Urgent Care, Norwegian Christian Home and Health Center, American Cancer Society, Caption Call, Dime Bank of Brooklyn Heights, doTerra, MTA Reduced Fare, NYU Langone and WMA Karate. Russell Craig Targove was the master of ceremonies at both expos and Howard Latting performed Tai Chi demos to promote WMA Karate’s senior self-defense and wellness classes. There were also blood pressure screenings and other activities throughout each event. Guests were exceedingly pleased with the scope of the expo. “I come to this expo every year and this is one of the best I’ve ever been to,” said attendee June Johnson. “It’s very informative and I’ll certainly be back.”

Bishop Kearney Goes Gold BROOKLYN EDUCATION BY JULIETTE PICCINI TUGANDER The student council at Bishop Kearney High School recently held a “Go for the Gold” event to raise awareness of childhood cancer. There was a delicious bake sale, and students donated $2 each to wear a gold or yellow shirt. The school fence was decorated with gold ribbons and balloons. Bishop Kearney will donate all funds raised to the American Childhood Cancer Organization in memory of Kaitlyn Bernhardt ’20, daughter of Jennifer Fallon Bernhardt ’88, and Sally “Sweet Sally Sunshine” Kabel, daughter of Nicole Kabel ’96. *** Brian Gomez, vice president and district manager of Investors Bank, and Anthony Gieri, branch manager, recently presented Bishop Kearney with the second installment of a three-year grant from the Investors Foundation for the school’s STEAM Wing. The school has used the donation to refurbish its Think Tank.

District 20 Teacher Awarded City Council Citation every parent’s worst nightmare,” Kovalik said. “My daughter was so scared and she would get separation anxiety and it looked like all hope was lost. Every day got harder and she would make herself sick by crying.” Then, she said, her whole world changed when she met Severino at the District 20 pre-k center at 1355 84th St. Severino, Kovalik said, changed her daughter’s outlook on coming to school. “She even found it fun,” Kovalik told this paper. “She started looking forward to going every day just

Dyker Heights teacher

Nicole Severino was awarded a citation from City Councilmember Justin Brannan earlier this month for her dedication to her students. Local parent Tracie Kovalik

credits Severino for easing her daughter’s transition from pre-k into kindergarten. “I met Ms. Severino after a really rough start. My daughter’s first year of pre-school was

by having a wonderful, caring and understanding teacher who was willing to go to endless lengths to show my daughter how much fun it is to go to school.” Now, she said, her daughter is in kindergarten and “walks right in.” “It’s important the we recognize teachers, especially when they go the extra mile for their students,” said Brannan of the award. “We are lucky to have Ms. Severino in Dyker Heights and she deserves this extra recognition for helping a young

student overcome her fears and really start to love coming to school each day.” “I can’t thank Ms. Severino enough for giving my daughter a brighter future and for being who is is,” added Kovalik. “It’s not just a job to her. She loves and cares about each student like they were her own.” She’d hoped her son, who just recently started pre-k in District 20 himself, would also get Severino as his teacher. “Thank heaven he did,” Kovalik told this paper. “I felt like I hit the lotto.”

Fort Hamilton Takes Another Fall to the Hall BY JIM DOLAN ER ASMUS HALL 45 FORT HAMILTON 8

The 3-2 Fort Hamilton Tigers traveled to Midwood to play the second place 4-1 Dutchmen of Erasmus Hall at Sid Luckman Field in a rarely scheduled Friday afternoon game last week. Erasmus was the team in 2011 that broke Fort Hamilton’s 38-game regular season winning streak. From that point Erasmus emerged as one of the most dominant teams in the PSAL City Conference. With a 32-14 mid season win over the Tigers in 2011, the Dutchmen ended the era of Fort Hamilton’s 2005 to 2011 dominance to begin a decade of their own success especially in the post-season. After 2011, the Dutchmen would beat the Tigers in eight more meetings (2012 to 2018) including this game as well. Continuing to play its dominant role, Erasmus scored early on a four-yard rush by Andrew Howell to give the Dutchmen an 8-0 first quarter lead. After Markeys Brown dragged two Tiger defenders to the one-yard line on a 31-yard pass play, quarterback Jordan Armstead ran the ball in from the one to make the score 16-0. Regaining the ball, Fort Ham ilton qu a r terback Marquis Willoughby drove his team to the 45-yard line

The touchdown appeared to put the Tigers back in the game; however, Fort Hamilton’s one-touchdown margin quickly evaporated as the Dutchmen proceeded to score three more times in the second quarter. After the Tigers’ first and only touchdown, the Dutchmen’s offense exploded, scoring on Howell’s second touchdown on a 37-yard rush, followed by a Yaseen Murden 35-yard pass play and then on a Justin Bellido three-yard

run to give Erasmus a 38-8 halftime lead. In the third quarter, the Tigers held the Dutchmen scoreless while Fort Hamilton (3-3) was denied the end zone as well. Erasmus (5-1) then wrapped its fifth win of the season in the fourth quarter as Armstead found Murden for his second touchdown on a 55-yard pass play to end the game for the final score of 45-8. Looking to improve their blocking on offense and tackling on defense, the Tigers will host Midwood, another top division team next Saturday.

His ongoing project, Stranger Fruit, examines the motherson relationship as a manifestation of the lasting effects of the fear of losing one’s loved ones. Henry photographs mothers alone and holding their son(s) in the classic pietà pose—that of the grieving Virgin Mary cradling the dead Christ—to explore the love, tenderness, and resilience of AfricanAmerican families in the face of violence and heartbreak. Although the photographs do not document real incidents they evoke the ever-present possibility of loss to police violence. When: Daily through October 28th, Mon – Fri 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sat – Sun -10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BRIC House Hallway (647 Fulton Street) QUIETER PLACES Marshall LaCount’s Quieter Places paintings are a collective approach to places quieter than the city; quieter than a mind treading in traumas; quieter than political despondency. These Quieter Places are beyond certain borders. They are elsewhere, for they are not places, they are images. In this case, they are images constructed by aching hands and sore arms which have managed to pull away from other work, made in less quiet places. Plaster is shaped alongside acrylic paint, wallboard, spray paint. Graffiti and the constant buffing of graffiti get a nod. The works are playful: primary colors occupy measured spaces in largely white fields of textured plaster. When: Daily Through October, 12 – 9 p.m. Where: Greenpoint/Exhibit Salon (182 Driggs Avenue) THE BRIDGE THE BRIDGE The Bridge! The Bridge!, Robert Latchman’s first solo exhibition at LAND Gallery, as a title encapsulates the commanding effect the Brooklyn Bridge has on this artist’s work. Latchman’s fascination with the Brooklyn Bridge began a few years ago. Since then, the bridge has served as his main subject, completely

capturing the artist’s focus. The Brooklyn Bridge is not his only subject, but it is a dominating one; the work evokes permanence, construction, and calls attention to the history of place. When: Mondays-Fridays through October 30th, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Land Gallery (67 Front Street) Traitor Muscle A New Commission and the first major solo exhibition in New York by Joseph Buckley. The artist’s practice centers on the relationship between grief and postcolonialism. Against a backdrop of contemporary fascism, Buckley employs a range of visual and cultural references—from sci-fi to modernism to Doc Martens to slave ships to Amazon’s factory floor—asking us to deeply consider society’s divisions and fractures, using the medium of sculpture to investigate the psychic technologies that enable them. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Art In General (145 Plymouth Street) ROBERT CUMMINGS New drawings from polymath artist Robert Cumming. Cumming’s nudes imply a compelling yet elusive narrative informed by his merging interests in painting, sculpture, and photography. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden, Inc. (91 Water Street) ODE TO A VOID Ron Baron’s solo exhibition, Ode to A Void. In this show, Baron’s slip-cast ceramic shoes are presented in a large spiraling swirl in the center of the space. Baron’s work is infused with a quiet, somber magic – one that references memory or loss and the temporal nature of moments. When: Thursdays-Sundays through November 4th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street) A CAT IN GOD’S GARDEN Luisa Caldwell’s exhibition encompasses personal interests that have spanned her childhood and adult life: cats, gardens, and art books. Her project is inspired by flowers and plants that she grows and nurtures in her Brooklyn garden, as well as the stray cats that come and go. On the gallery walls are hundreds of Caldwell’s botanical drawings illustrating fantastic flora. Caldwell has also created an installation of found porcelain and stoneware vases that have her own feline and botanical imagery

etched into the surface. Rather than exhibiting these vessels on traditional bases, she displays them on stacks of art books that refer to the influences that spill into the content of her work. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through November 4th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street) BRIDGING TWO WORLDS: THE LAND OF THE LIVING AND THE LAND OF THE DEAD The exhibition brings together artworks and artifacts that speak to the universal question: “what happens to us after we die?” When: Saturdays & Sundays through December 2nd, 12 – 5 p.m. Where: Green-Wood/ Green-Wood Cemetery Fort Hamilton Gatehouse (500 25th Street) TOWARDS A NEW ARCHEOLOGY This group show brings together artists who reevaluate the history of material culture — presenting installation and sculptural works that speak to a mystical, transcendent, and visionary future. Towards a New Archaeology features work by Amy Brener, Leeza Meksin, Sheila Pepe (NWA’02), Ioanna Pantazopoulou, Ester Partegàs (NWA’09), Jean Shin (NWA’07), and Rachel Eulena Williams. When: Daily through January 2019, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building (30 Lafayette Street) THE BUSINESS OF BROOKLYN: AN EXHIBITION ON THE OCCASION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BROOKLYN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE An exhibition exploring the past 100 years of business in the borough. The story spans booming factories, family shops, iconic innovation, and labor struggles. The exhibition showcases images and objects from companies large and small that thrived in Brooklyn, including Domino Sugar, Squibb Pharmaceuticals, Schaefer Beer, Drake Bakeries, Abraham & Straus, Gage & Tollner, and many others. It includes numerous artifacts from the Brooklyn Chamber’s history, including a gavel that the Chamber used to convene meetings in the 1920s, the telephone the Chamber used in its first offices at 75 Livingston Street, and a program for the Chamber’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, which honored entertainer Danny Kaye. It also includes treasures from BHS’s collections, including Eberhard pencil sets, Virginia

Dare bottles and glasses, coasters and trays from Brooklyn’s illustrious beer brewing history. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through January 2019, 12 – 5 p.m. Where: Brooklyn Heights/ Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont Street) SYRIA, THEN AND NOW: STORIES FROM REFUGEES A CENTURY APART Features highlights from the museum’s collection of thirteenth century Syrian ceramics alongside work by the contemporary Arab artists Ginane Makki Bacho, Issam Kourbaj, and Mohamed Hafez.

Eye on BAY


real estate Brooklyn is a big place with so many choices! Let our real estate section make you feel at home.

Here’s the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, which is Bay Ridge’s best-known structure. Houses in the neighborhood sell for a pretty penny. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

BAY RIDGE: HOW IT GOT ITS NAME When Henry Hudson stood on the deck of the “Half Moon” (Halve Moen in Dutch) as he sailed into the harbor more than 400 years ago, he saw Staten Island to his left,

and on his right, on top of a ridge on the Brooklyn shore, land that appeared to be in the shape of an owl’s head. Today, the spacious Owl’s Head Park occupies that land above Shore Road in the neighborhood called Bay Ridge in Brooklyn’s southwest. The bay, of course, is what they called the harbor in those early days. The ridge is from the elevation left by the remnants of the last ice age, millions of years ago. The water across to Staten Island now has been spanned by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, named for the Italian Giovanni da Verrazzano who sailed the route in 1524 on his voyage of discovery. The bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed in 1964. Bay Ridge was originally part of the town of New Utrecht and was known as Yellow Hoek, named by its Dutch settlers for the yellowish clay soil they found there. The Dutch West India Company had bought the land from the local Nyack Indians. But after an outbreak of yellow fever in the mid-19th century, the name was changed to Bay Ridge for its proximity to New York Bay and its glacial ridge, now Ridge Boulevard. Henry C. Murphy, a mayor of the City of Brooklyn, a New York State senator and founder and editor of theBrooklyn Eagle, built his estate along that ridge. The area originally attracted the wealthier residents, but after the 4th Ave. subway line (the R-train) was extended in 1915, it lured many Manhattan workers and it became more of a middle-class neighborhood.

South of 86th St. is the section called Fort Hamilton, named for the military base that occupies the southernmost portion of Bay Ridge. The fort was originally called the Narrows, when it was completed in 1831, but later was renamed in honor of Alexander Hamilton. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Abner Doubleday were at some time stationed at Fort Hamilton. —Norm Goldstein

Longest-Serving NYPD Chaplain, First Hasidic Woman Judge Among 2018 Hall of Fame Honorees By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor INBrooklyn

The first Hasidic woman to be elected to public office in U.S. history and the longestserving chaplain in NYPD history were among the stars being honored at the Fourth Annual BJHI Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame event that took place Monday night, October 15. The Brooklyn Historical Society, a charter member of the Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative, hosted the celebration. Rabbi Alvin Kass comes across as a man of joy and peace. Introducing him was Brooklyn Borough Historian Ron Schweiger, who said he’s known Kass for 36 years—about the entire time he served as rabbi of the East Midwood Jewish Center. “Now you must be doing something right for them to keep a rabbi for 36 years,” Schweiger remarked. Schweiger pointed out that longevity seems to be Kass’s gift, as he has also served as an NYPD chaplain since 1966—some 52 years — making him the longest-serving chaplain in NYPD history. Kass has served under seven mayors and 16 police commissioners. “As a rabbi, I think I’m the luckiest person in the world, because I’m in a position to really enjoy people at their best. I can intensify their joy; I try to help them through sorrow. But the greatest pleasure of a rabbi—and the word rabbi means teacher—is to see your offspring achieve great things. And I’m on the bill here tonight with Adam Richman. He’s my student, my mitzvah boy. “The career that I’ve had has had high points; it’s had very sad points,” Kass said, pointing out that he had been at Madison Square Garden just that morning at a NYPD ceremony where attendees learned about and prayed for a firefighter who had fallen three stories from a building in the line of duty. On an earlier occasion, on the same day that his son Danny was bar mitzvahed at the East Midwood Jewish Center, Kass got a call about a police officer who had been shot and killed— and spent the next several days helping the officer’s family through the grief. “That chance to intensify the life of people in good times, and

INBrooklyn photos by Francesca N. Tate also to help them in bad times, I think is the greatest privilege in the world,” he said. “It’s been my opportunity to be able to do that my entire adult life.” Richman, a son of the East Midwood Jewish Center, was visibly moved by Kass’s tribute. Richman has enjoyed an acting career and has also become a self-educated food expert. He is the author of “America the Edible: A Hungry History from Sea to Dining Sea.” Judge Rachel Freier was the first Hasidic woman elected to Civil Court, although she was moved to Criminal Court. She told the gathering on Monday that her parents taught her that she could aim for any honorable goals that she wanted, and she thanked them, and her husband and children, for their support. “My mother said, ‘Girl, you can do anything you want to, so long as it isn’t illegal, immoral, or against the Torah,’” Freier said. “Growing up, I was taught to believe that the world is wide with opportunities. I did not feel restrained; I did not feel restricted.” Freier said although there were rules, those provided a

structure for succeeding. She also said, “My father thought I was a lawyer before I became a lawyer!” Having parents who believed in and encouraged her—“I believe that tells my story,” she said. Freier, who began her career in law interning for then-U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and other elected officials, excelled at law school and passed the bar exam in 2006. Ten years later, she won the three-way race for Civil Court judge in a landslide, gaining 74.4 percent of the vote. Expressing a great faith in God for her purpose, Freier said knew how to handle naysayers and detractors. “How you do you know it’s never going to happen?” she would say. “If God wants it to happen, it will happen.” When asked during the Hall of Fame interview how she finds balance between her work and home life, she replied that keeping her faith in God was key.

Other Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame honorees included David Greenfield, CEO of the Metropolitan Food Council and advocate on eliminating poverty. He is a former city councilmember serving parts of Flatbush, Midwood and Kensington; Brooklyn Navy Yard Chairperson Henry Gutman; Brooklyn musician, songwriter, producer and writer Cecelia Margules; Gowanus resident and award-winning cinematographer, feature film editor and director Ferne Pearlstein; and Tony-Award nominee, playwright, actor, director and singer Eleanor Reissa. Renowned food critic and writer Mimi Sheraton, now 93, was also an honoree but could not attend due to ill health. Honoree Abe Becker, who enjoyed an outstanding high school and collegiate basketball career, died on October 7. Author and basketball coach Charlie Rosen gave him a poignant memorial at the Hall of Fame.

Brooklyn Eagle cover from Oct. 16, 1924

ON OCT. 15, 1924, the Eagle reported, “Springing suddenly out of the October haze hanging like a fog over the lower bay at 7:40 o’clock today, and swimming the skies with all the grace of a huge silver fish, the ZR-3 came sailing over New York straight from the works of her German builders. Her entry through the gateway of America could not have been more auspicious. The day was perfect, the air still, and she came in impressive majesty, turning and maneuvering over Manhattan and Brooklyn for more than an hour. As she swam over the lower bay and the river, dipped toward the skyscrapers, passed over the Equitable Building and behind the great tower of the Woolworth Building, not so much taller than she is long, she was under perfect control. At times she almost seemed to stand still under the morning sun, and she gave New York as great an aerial show as this city ever had before.”  ON OCT. 15, 1939, the Eagle reported, “London, Oct. 14 (U.P.) — Streams of ‘refugees’ kept trickling back to the slums of London and other big cities of Great Britain today in a ‘revolt’ against country life. They are part, although only a small part, of the mass migration of more than 1,300,000 women, children and invalids to the countryside at the outbreak of war. They were glad to be back, no matter how squalid their homes. Many insisted on returning despite repeated warnings of the peril of air raids. Their numbers included children who had never known anything but margarine. They objected to the taste of fresh country butter. They found bulls far more terrifying than city traffic or bombs. They were accustomed to fish, chips and beer for ‘supper’ and found fresh eggs and milk strange to their palate.”  ON OCT. 15, 1951, a listing in the Eagle’s Video Highlights column read, “9:00 WCBS (2) ‘I Love Lucy,’ featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (premiere).”

 ON OCT. 16, 1842, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Colt’s Submarine Battery. — A third experiment with this engine of destruction will be made in our harbor tomorrow afternoon, at 4 o’clock precisely, under the patronage and direction of the American Institute, now holding its annual fair at Niblo’s Garden. The vessel to be blown up is larger than either of those already experimented upon, and will fully test the power of the battery.”  ON OCT. 16, 1896, the Eagle published the following advertisement: “E.C.M. Fitzgerald’s Brooklyn Music Hall. This Week — First appearance in Brooklyn of Edison’s Vitascope and the best show ever presented in this city. Continuous concerts Sunday from 3 to 12.”  ON THIS DAY IN 1912, the Eagle reported, “Chicago, Oct. 16 — Col. [Theodore] Roosevelt, his family with him, and satisfied as to his condition, today rested at greater ease than at any time since the hand of John Schrank was lifted against his life in Milwaukee on Monday night. Physicians examining his wound today and making a complete clinical examination, found his pulse, respiration and temperature so nearly normal that concern over his condition vanished, and the extremely conservative conduct gave way to a desire to establish public assurance that no complications were looked for to stand in the way of rapid recovery.”

ON OCT. 16, 1946, the Eagle reported, “Nuernberg, Oct. 16 — Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering succeeding in cheating the gallows of allied justice by committing suicide in his prison cell a short time before the 10 other condemned remnants of the Nazi hierarchy were hanged earlier today. Despite the fact that an American security guard was supposed to be watching his every movement, the Crown Prince of Nazidom managed to place in his mouth, chew and swallow a vial containing cyanide of potassium. The vial of poison was hidden in a copper cartridge shell. Goering swallowed the poison while Col. S. Burton Andrus, American security commandant, was walking across the prison yard to death block to read him and the 10 other condemned Nazi leaders the International Military Tribunal’s sentence of death … Goering had not previously been told that he was going to die this morning, nor had any of the other condemned men. How he guessed that this was to be his day of doom and how he managed to conceal the poison on his person is a mystery that has confounded the security forces.” 

Paced by the mighty 20,000-ton carrier Enterprise, 10 ships arrived for the celebration of Navy Day, Oct. 27. They were the vanguard of the 50 fighting ships which President [Harry] Truman will review in the Hudson River after commissioning the super-carrier Midway at the Brooklyn Navy Yard … Their coming yesterday was heralded yesterday afternoon by a spectacular flight of 101 fighter planes and torpedo bombers from the decks of the carriers. Taking off far out at sea, the planes came roaring over lower Manhattan and Brooklyn to land at Floyd Bennett Field.”

ON OCT. 19, 1952, the Eagle reported, “President [Harry] Truman whistle-stopped his way into Brooklyn last night, telling a cheering capacity crowd at the Eastern Parkway Roller Skating Rink that Dwight D. Eisenhower and other Republicans are waging a “street gutter” campaign that is helping the Communists. Truman’s speech, which wound up his second trip in support of Adlai E. Stevenson’s presidential campaign, came midway in a 17-mile motorcade tour of Brooklyn. Hundreds of thousands of borough residents lined sidewalks from Flatbush to Williamsburg to greet the president.

For Laughing Out Loud • Did you hear about the sensitive burglar. He takes things personally. • Why did Mozart kill his chicken? Because it kept saying Bach, bach, bach. • What do lawyers wear to court? Lawsuits. • “It’s so cold!” “Go stand in the corner where it’s 90 degrees.” • An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either. • I’m like a really down to earth guy because you know… gravity.

800-257-1212 •

• I have a lot of jokes about unemployed people, but none of them work.


• And finally, there was the person who sent twenty different puns to his friends, with the hope that at least ten of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did!

Half a Century Later, Brooklyn Stickball Old Timers Day Remains Special BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM


tradition half a century in the making continues to bring out the competition and camaraderie on a Bay Ridge block. This year’s Brooklyn Stickball Old Timers Day, once again held on the same day as the Ragamuffin Parade, Saturday, October 13, celebrated its 50th anniversary and brought old and new friends back together for a game they played as youths and still have a passion for to this day. The beloved and nostalgic tradition, celebrated on 80th Street between Third and Fourth Avenues, brought back not only good, old-fashioned fun, but helped rekindle a long-lasting bond. “It was really good. We had a great turnout,” said coordinator for the games and long-time Bay Ridgeite Peter Syrdahl. “We have young guys that come from all over,” he said. “People came from Kentucky, Florida and California. Plus we had our own old-timers from Texas and Virginia, and my brother came from

Norway, which was very special.” The old timers mostly consist of players ages 6570 years old; the young old timers are around 40. The night before gametime, a group of stickball aficionados consisting of 57 people went to Sirico’s Caterers, 8023 13th Avenue, for an anniversary dinner. “I think it was emotional,” said Syrdahl, who no longer plays due to several surgeries. “I gave a little speech Friday evening. I could see some of the people in the audience sobbing. Fifty years is a long time.” For the occasion, Syrdahl put together a slideshow of photos taken over the years. “People were fascinated,” he said. “When they were not dancing or talking, they were watching the photos from 30, 40 years ago. “It was a little bittersweet,” he added, with recollections of 13 regular players who had died. “Everyone loves just getting together,” Syrdahl noted. “For me it was heartwarming because we’ve been friends for 50 years, more than that.” The following day, when it was time to play ball, two

The younger group got their act together in the second game and won 14-12. “The ballgame was great,” recalled Syrdahl. “It was a brisk day, and we had a great turnout. I would say there were 40 players and about 20 watching us. Everyone was happy and played their hearts out.” Following the game, the group of pals went to J.J. Bubbles, 7912 Third Ave., for

really lives on the block anymore, we’re all good friends,” Syrdahl said.

Rotary Club Hosts BBQ for Veterans at Brooklyn VA Medical Center BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM


t was the perfect weather for an afternoon picnic on Saturday, Sept. 29 when members of the Rotary Club hosted a barbecue for veterans at the Brooklyn VA Medical Center in Dyker Heights. The Rotary Club routinely gives back to the community. Members happily donated all the food and beverages as a way of saying thanks to our ailing veterans. For this event, the Rotary Club of Verrazano partnered with the Rotary Club of Ronkonkoma and member Lonnie Sherman, founder and president of General Needs, an organization that serves homeless veterans.

brooklynONE Founder to Receive Dyker Civic Assoc. Award BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


he co-founder of one of Southwest Brooklyn’s most well known theater companies will be playing a different role, that of award winner, when he is honored by the Dyker Heights Civic Association at the organization’s dinner-dance in October. Anthony Marino, co-founder of brooklynONE, will be one of the guests of honor at the dinner dance to take place on Oct. 25 at Sirico’s Caterers, 8015 13th Ave., at 7 p.m. Marino, who works in real estate at Douglas Elliman, will be honored by the civic association along with John Bennett, the owner of Indigo Murphy’s, a popular bar at 7102 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Dyker Heights. Fran Vella-Marrone, president of the civic association, praised both

honorees for their generosity and community-minded spirit. Through brooklynONE, a non-profit theater company, Marino “has brought theater and entertainment to venues in Dyker Heights, including concerts and most recently, a full production of ‘Godspell,’” Vella-Marrone said in a statement. She was referring to an acclaimed production of “Godspell,” the famous Stephen Schwartz musical, that brooklynONE staged at Redeemer St. John’s Lutheran Church in July. The production was presented as part of a new partnership among brooklynONE, the civic association and the church to bring the arts to Dyker Heights. The production came about after Vella-Marrone approached Marino on behalf of Redeemer St. John’s Lutheran Church and asked him to consider mounting a

Anthony Marino says the award is deeply meaningful to him because he was born and raised in Dyker Heights. version of “Godspell” in the church. “I thought it would be a great thing for Dyker Heights culturally,” Vella-Marrone told this newspaper in a recent interview. It’s important for residents of Dyker Heights to realize that their community

can be a home for the arts, Vella-Marrone said. And residents would get to see that the civic association is there not just to help solve problems like potholes and broken street lights, but to be a force in promoting the neighborhood, she said.

Aside from his theater productions, Marino’s work in brooklynONE is important for another reason, according to Vella-Marrone, who said he has “provided theater opportunities for local aspiring performers.” Marino co-founded brooklynONE with the late Tom Kane. In addition to his theater pursuits and his career in real estate, Marino is also a member of Community Board 10. Bennett, who has been a business owner in Dyker Heights for 27 years, has earned a reputation as a strong supporter of youth sports programs and charities, Vella-Marrone said. “He and his partners have sponsored, organized and donated to many charitable events over the years,” she said. Bennett is a coach for the 68th Precinct Youth Council Soccer League and has

served as a volunteer with the Brooklyn Shamrock Gaelic Football League and the Brooklyn Rugby Club. In addition, he organized the Bay Ridge Beach Whales, a team that took part in the New York Special Olympics Polar Plunge. Marino, who was born and raised in Dyker Heights, said he was deeply grateful to receive recognition from the leading organization in his neighborhood. “I consider it a great honor to be recognized by the Dyker Civics Association. Growing up in Dyker, living here and contributing back to the community is so important and I’m happy in my little way through the arts and even real estate I’m able to do that, all while having my family here in Brooklyn’s best neighborhood,” he told this newspaper.

am writing regarding the recent opinion column by Jerry Kassar in the October 12 edition of the paper. While the banner reads “Justice Kavanaugh”, the second half of his column was about the recent political forum that was held at the Fort Hamilton Senior Center. I would like to comment on the accuracy of what Jerry wrote in his column. His portrayal of how the forum was conducted by Peter Killen was grossly inaccurate and filled with half-truths and skewed opinions. I know, because I attended the event. His characterization of Peter is not only disrespectful but politically biased. When I arrived at the

DEBATING THE DEBATE event, I asked Peter how the forum was going to be run. He explained that each candidate would get opening remarks, followed by audience questions that would have to be submitted in advance, and then closing remarks. I asked if I could submit a question and he gave me the clip board with question forms that I needed to fill out. On the form was space to include: 1. Who the question was for; 2. What the question was; 3. My name. I wrote my questions and placed them in the order they were submitted on the table. There were about seven other questions on the table for the various candidates for Senate, Congress and Assembly races.

Peter was very clear that if my question was chosen, I would be called to the front of the room to read my question. Both of my questions were directed toward Marty Golden. The questions were not randomly chosen by Peter. There was an order and that is how they were presented to the candidates. Two of the questions directed toward the Senate candidates were read by Peter because the people who submitted them ASKED Peter to read them because they did not want to. To say that Peter leaned toward the Democrats running for office is grossly inaccurate. Neither of my questions was chosen and I went up to Peter to ask if I could ask at

least one of them. He said no. Time had run out and the forum was already running overtime. As for the question that Mallory McMahon asked about meeting with constituents and if both candidates would pledge to hold Town Hall meetings if they were elected, Jerry’s comments about how that transpired is, again, full of untruths. Mallory asked her question in a respectful tone, after presenting facts about recent attempts to meet with Golden. At no time was she out of line. The entire room erupted when Golden stated, “Mallory, I have no time for you.” The way Golden spoke to her provoked an appropriate response from those in

attendance. As for issues that affect seniors, many seniors in the room asked questions that had nothing to do with senior issues. The forum was not a closed one; it was open to anyone who wanted to attend. Any senior in the room could have submitted a question. Most did not. Lastly, if your publication is going to give Jerry Kassar an outlet to reflect on debates that occur between now and the election, I believe it is only fair that the same consideration be given to Andrew Gounardes’ team. If Jerry is going to use his column to describe events that occur in the course of a campaign inaccurately, then perhaps his column

should be suspended until the election is over. Otherwise, he will continue to go unchecked, and have a forum to spread lies, attack constituents, and misrepresent community leaders like Peter Killen, one of Bay Ridge’s most respected retired police officers and civic leaders. My goal in writing to you today is to make sure our community does not fall victim to the divisiveness that is occurring throughout our country. We can do better and we should do better. And correcting political leaders when they misrepresent events to our community is essential if we hope to have constructive conversation. Karen Tadross

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Thousands March in 52nd Annual Ragamuffin Parade on Third Avenue Thousands More Enjoy Festival Next Day The Ragamuffin Parade was founded in 1967 by the late Cliff Scanlon and Fr. Richard McKenna of Our Lady of Angels, along with a hardy band of volunteers whose goal was to highlight and encourage the youth of Bay Ridge during those turbulent times when the nation was wracked by protests and riots, especially after the assassinations of President John F. Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “It’s for the kids!” Scanlon told us all so many times at Ragamuffin rallies. Since then, thousands of colorfully costumed kids and their parents have marched through Bay Ridge — this year once again on Third Avenue. Last Saturday the tradition continued, thanks in large part to Ragamuffin

President Arlene Keating and her team of talented volunteers, including, but not limited to, Ilene Sacco, Ted General, Jeanine Condon, Rose Gangi, Colleen Golden, Liz Amato, Linda O’Neill, Jen Reinhardt, Dave Annarummo (he brought in a group of dancing zombies who just about stole the show), Allison Greaker and attorney Joann Monaco (a past president of the Bay Ridge Lawyers Association). The next day, thousands more flocked to Third Avenue for the annual street festival organized by Third Avenue Festival Manager Chip Cafiero. Both events were tremendous successes and capped Bay Ridge’s biggest and best weekend of the calendar year! Shown in some of the scenes from the parade and festival are:

he 22nd District state Senate race pits young Andrew Gounardes against 68-yearold incumbent Martin Golden. Gov. Andrew Cuomo appeared before a standing-room-only crowd in Bensonhurst to support Gounardes. The excitement was unlike anything the community has experienced in decades. The overflow crowd outside the Stars and Stripes Democratic Club on 15th Avenue listened closely to hear the governor at the rally endorse Gounardes before television crews and enthusiastic supporters. Gov. Cuomo told them, “I need Sen. Gounardes in Albany. I need him … He is smart. He gets it. He works hard. He knows the district. He will represent you.” The


energetic delivery galvanized the throng. There are twice as many registered Democrats as Republicans in the district. Gounardes addressed his supporters, “There is a lot more work to do here to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors, our community members, our coworkers, our families, our friends … everyone here in our communities.” The race is approaching the home stretch. Republicans have had a stranglehold on the State Senate for decades, except for a brief period a decade ago. The negative backlash against the Trump Republican Party and the new right should motivate Democrats to vote this November. This will be problematic for entrenched Republican politicians like Golden if voters turn out in large

numbers. The groundswell of support can lift Gounardes to victory along with Max Rose, the Democratic candidate in the race in the 11th Congressional District that covers Staten Island and Bay Ridge. In that contest, Dan Donovan, the incumbent Republican, is facing a stiff challenge from Rose who has a graduate degree and is an Army combat veteran. The 11th District has been held by Republicans since 2010 although, like the 22nd Senate District, there is an enrollment advantage for Democrats here as well. Rose supports women’s reproductive rights, stricter background checks for gun purchasers and expanded health care coverage. Donovan advocates the repeal of most of the Affordable Care Act, elimination of "sanctuary city" status and


The negative backlash against the Trump Republican Party and the new right should motivate Democrats to vote this November. President Trump’s "America First" foreign policy. He has consistently moved to the right during his term in response to criticism from conservatives. The day after the Cuomo rally, Gounardes debated Golden at the Fort Hamilton Senior Center. The two clashed over several issues including education funding and how to treat the victims of clergy sex abuse.


suspect during the course of the past baseball season, I made it quite clear that I am a lifelong Mets fan coming from a family of onetime Brooklyn Dodger fans. As such, I was never much of a fan of the Yankees. Nevertheless, I was rooting for them against Boston, but not because I am a fan of all sports New York. Frankly, I hardly ever root for the Yankees in any situation. This year was different. I thought they worked hard all season, playing for the most part consistently good ball, resulting in what would normally be considered an impressive record. The Yankees earned their spot in the playoffs. Of course, Boston seems to have a charmed existence in 2018. The team’s 108 wins

was quite impressive, not that the Yankees’ 100 wins was not. Boston also had an element of luck mixed in with the charm during the playoffs, with the Yankees which could have easily gone either way. It can be difficult for a hardened Mets fan to say anything nice about the Yankees. Allow me to take that difficult step and congratulate them on a fine season and hope that next year, in the World Series, the Mets beat them in four games. *** Say what you want to say about debates and forums, but some are clearly run better than others. Fran Vella-Marrone did a marvelous job moderating the several candidate debates that took place at her Dyker Heights

Civic Association meeting last week For several years – many years ago – I was president of the group and moderated the same series of debates that Dyker has hosted for probably 50-plus years.

President Trump’s only role is to make a great punching bag for a governor whose Achilles heel is his base. It is not easy keeping the candidates to the clock in terms of opening and closing statements, answers to questions and rebuttals. It can also be difficult to stop audience members who ask questions from debating the candidates. Fran ruled with an iron gavel and a good time

Gounardes supports public education and easing the statute of limitations on those sex crimes. Golden supports charter school expansion and hesitated to address the statute of limitations issue. Golden said, “Charter schools are public schools” and “If you get rid of the statute of limitations for this crime, you would have to eliminate it for all crimes.” Both statements reflect an oversimplification of the issues and a refusal to think outside of the box. However, a question from the audience created the most controversy during the debate. Mallory McMahon, co-founder of Fight Back Bay Ridge, asked Golden why he

avoided her whenever she requested to meet with him. Golden said that he believed she was a Democratic loyalist uninterested in a discussion of issues. He told her, “Mallory, I’m too busy for you.” Unbelievable! Gounardes immediately responded that, if elected, he would meet with all his constituents. “I’m not afraid of people who disagree with me,” he said. The debate highlighted the difference between entrenched indifference and a fresh approach. Andrew Gounardes has the energy and empathy and willingness needed to shake up the status quo in Albany. On Nov. 6, 2018, the people will decide.


keeper. She kept the evening moving with no favoritism shown to any candidate. Good job, Fran. *** A few days ago, the Metropolitan Republican Club — whose roots go all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt, and which owns a building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, which serves as headquarters for the state GOP, the New York County GOP and the Molinaro for governor campaign — was vandalized by Antifa activists who graffitied the front door, broke windows and left a long threatening note.

This was in response to a controversial speaker who would be speaking at the club the next night. Violence ensued afterwards with several arrests, both of members of the group that the speaker leads and of protesters, all of whom were accused of assault. All that happened outside the club at the conclusion of the meeting remains as of this writing under investigation by the NYPD. Personally, I would not have given this particular speaker a platform. That being said, the governor chose to blame President Trump and Republican State Chairperson Ed Cox for the events. President Trump’s only role is to make a great

punching bag for a governor whose Achilles heel is his base. Ed Cox — who had his headquarters vandalized — is a victim. So are the GOP club members who walked out of their club meeting to find a threatening crowd awaiting them. And of course, anyone who was protesting and who was assaulted was also a victim. My point is a simple one. We know there were many victims. Yet Governor Cuomo decided to boil it down to Donald Trump, who is no more than a scapegoat for many, many things in the Cuomo world, and Ed Cox who is also a victim. Someone needs to speak up for them too. And I am happy to do so.

While arthritis is common in older adults, it effects people of all ages and is the leading cause of disability in America. You can’t always prevent arthritis, but there are healthy steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing achy joints. Eat healthy. Certain fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have a number of health benefits—and may reduce inflammation in the body. Watch your weight. Excess weight can put pressure on your joints. Over time, the extra strain breaks down the cartilage that cushions these joints which leads to pain and inflammation. Exercise. Staying active is one of the most optimal ways to keep your joints healthy. As little as 30 minutes a day of physical activity strengthens the muscles around the joints. Avoid or treat injuries immediately. Playing it safe is always the best bet. To avoid injury, always use the proper safety equipment while playing sports, and learn the correct exercise techniques. If an injury does occur, seek treatment immediately. Protect your joints. The way you walk, pick up objects, or sit can have a negative impact on your joints. Lift with your knees and hips—not your back—when picking up objects. Carry items close to your body, so you don’t put too much strain on your wrists. If you sit for long periods of time, make sure that your back, legs, and arms are well supported.

Arthritis can be hereditary or occur as you age. Early diagnosis and immediate treatment and ongoing management can help maintain your quality of life while living with arthritis.

Frontus, Saperstein Talk Education Reform at Debate BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


ducation reform and how to help make college more aďŹ&#x20AC;ordable were two of the biggest topics of conversation as Democrat Mathylde Frontus and Republican Steve Saperstein met for a debate in Dyker Heights, with both candidates for State Assembly in the 46th Assembly District presenting ideas that reďŹ&#x201A;ected outside-thebox thinking. Both candidates are educators. Responding to a question from the audience about college aďŹ&#x20AC;ordability, Frontus, who earned a PhD from Columbia University and has been an adjunct professor, said she would like to see changes in ďŹ nancial aid programs. Under her proposal, income eligibility levels would be raised to give more students from middle income families the chance to qualify for ďŹ nancial aid. Saperstein, a special needs teacher, said he believes that not every high school student is meant to

go to college and that some youngsters would be able to build better futures for themselves by attending vocational schools. He vowed to work on reforms if elected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to be Mr. Education in Albany,â&#x20AC;? he said. Sponsored by the Dyker Heights Civic Association, the debate took place at Saint Philipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Episcopal Church Hall in Dyker Heights. The 46th Assembly District is a diverse district that runs from Coney Island to Bay Ridge and includes parts of Dyker Heights and Brighton Beach. It also takes in Seagate. Frontus, a Coney Island resident, touted her community organizing skills. She is the founder of Urban Neighborhood Services, a social services agency. She also started a program to help military veterans, created an LGBT Outreach project and organized the group Coney Island College Bound, which offers free SAT prep for high school students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to make the community a better place,â&#x20AC;?

Mathylde Frontus vowed to serve all parts of the diverse Assembly district if she wins election in November. she told the audience. Frontus pledged that she would bring those same skills to Albany and would work on behalf of the entire district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I live in Coney Island, not Dyker, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all part of the same Southern Brooklyn family,â&#x20AC;? she said. Still, Frontus conceded that diďŹ&#x20AC;erent parts of the district have different concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here in Dyker, quality-of-life issues are a major concern,â&#x20AC;? she said, acknowledging the neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

middle class status. Coney Island residents, by contrast, were recently determined by a New York City survey to have the second lowest household income level in the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This seat requires someone who is versatile,â&#x20AC;? Frontus said. Saperstein, who lives in Brighton Beach, recently became a father for the second time when his wife Elina had a baby girl. The couple also has a one-year-old daughter, Rebecca. His reason for

running for public oďŹ&#x192;ce is tied to his role as a father, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m stepping up for my daughters and for all the children,â&#x20AC;? he said. Saperstein is a community activist who belongs to UJA Federation of NY, Brooklyn First Responders for Addiction, the Brooklyn Hebrew Society for the Deaf and other organizations. He earned a BA from New York University and holds two Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Degrees, one from Hunter College and one from Touro College. He

also earned a law degree from Syracuse University College of Law. At the debate, Saperstein vowed to get to work immediately solving problems if he is elected. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have an outdated education system in dire need of an overhaul. We need common sense ideas to drive policy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve proven to be a problem solver,â&#x20AC;? he said. Saperstein, whose parents, Susan and Brian, and younger brother Bruce are deaf, talked about growing up in a house where sign language was his first language. It made him appreciate the power of communication, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The community has been without a voice. I will be your voice,â&#x20AC;? he told he audience. Frontus and Saperstein are running to succeed Democrat Pamela Harris, the former assemblymember who resigned from ofďŹ ce in disgrace earlier this year after she was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of fraud and corruption. She pleaded guilty to the charges.

Talk Dominated by Big Pharma Contributions, Candidate’s Residency BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


n their first debate in a closely watched congressional race, Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan and his Democratic opponent Max Rose hit each other with charges over campaign contributions tied to Big Pharma and carpet-bagging. A questioner from the audience noted that Donovan had accepted campaign contributions from Perdue Pharma, the company that manufactures OxyContin, an opioid found to be addictive to patients. Donovan countered that it was not Perdue Pharma that gave money to his campaign, but “two individuals who work for the company.” Donovan quickly added that he took the controversial campaign contributions, totaling nearly $10,000, and donated the money to two local organizations that help people suffering from drug addiction. Rose scoffed at Donovan’s answer. “He accepted the donations three years ago and donated the money only after we told the press!” Rose said, hinting that the incumbent did the right thing solely to avoid negative publicity. Donovan is seeking re-election in New York’s 11th Congressional District, a seat that includes several neighborhoods in Southwest Brooklyn, like Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, and covers the entire borough of Staten Island. Both Donovan and Rose live on Staten Island. The Oct. 12 forum, the first time the two men have debated, was sponsored by the Bay Ridge Community Council and took place at Xaverian High School, 7100 Shore Road. While it marked the first time Donovan and Rose have faced each other, it was not a one-on-one debate. The community council also invited Green Party candidate Henry Bardel to take part. CNN has labeled the Donovan-Rose race as too close to call, a significant development since Donovan is the only Republican in New York City’s congressional delegation.

Democrat Max Rose is a first time candidate for public office. The Cook Political Report, however, has listed the race as “likely Republican.” At the debate, Donovan and Rose also got into a heated exchange over Rose’s residency. Donovan defended a campaign ad on television in which a narrator can he heard saying that Rose “isn’t one of us” because the challenger moved into the congressional district only within the past couple of years. Donovan, who was elected to Congress in a special election three and a half years ago, said that Rose has lived in the congressional district less time than that. Rose, a U.S. Army veteran who fought in Afghanistan, angrily replied that he did not move into the district earlier because he was busy serving his country in the military. His answer drew loud applause from the audience in the half-filled high school auditorium. Donovan said he respected Rose’s military service to the nation but added that he was pointing out his opponent’s residency status because it was a fact. Health care was a major topic of discussion at the debate. “Our health care system is broken,” Donovan said. “The Affordable Care Act helped a lot of people and

Incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan was first elected to Congress in 2015.

it hurt a lot of people,” referring to the landmark law that is also known as Obamacare. Donovan said he voted

against Trump Care, a repeal of Obamacare championed by President Donald Trump, because he believed it was too sweeping and

would have hurt people in his district. “I think what we have to do is piecemeal it,” he said, adding that maintaining affordable coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions “is a must.” Bardel called for the establishment of a single-payer health care system in the U.S. “We’re the richest country in the world. We should have it,” he said. Bardel also advocated raising the tax rate for millionaires to 90 percent. “We can raise a heck of a lot of money that way,” he said. Rose, who was seated onstage between Donovan and Bardel, said he disagreed with both of their approaches. “We need a public option. We need to control skyrocketing prices. The answer is also not single payer. The answer is right up the middle, building on the existing system,” Rose said. A question from the audience prompted a discussion over cutbacks at

the Brooklyn Campus of the VA NY Harbor Health Care System, also known as the VA Medical Center. The facility is located at 800 Poly Place in Bay Ridge. “Our VA system is broken. This is personal to me,” Rose said. He charged that it takes too long for veterans to get into the system and once veterans are enrolled, they face “incredible shortages” of trained professionals to assist them. Instead of providing adequate funding for the VA system, Republicans in Congress “just shipped $1 trillion to rich people,” Rose said, referring to the tax cut approved by Congress in 2017. Donovan voted against the tax cut. Donovan said he has held roundtable discussion with local veterans and has worked to try to prevent cuts at the hospital. He recently met with U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie in Washington, D.C. to discuss health care for veterans.

Locally, P.S. 127 and P.S. 264 participated in the national walk-to-school, which also encouraged participating students to create a plan of action by mapping out their route beforehand and estimating the time it would take to arrive at school on time. In addition, all 486 students at P.S. 264, 371 89th St., were given a pedometer — funded by the PTA and Mighty Milers running program — to wear to track their steps during the week as part of an effort to promote pedestrian awareness.

ORTIZ URGES FUNDING FOR SCHOOL-BASED HEALTH CENTERS Assemblymember Felix Ortiz (D-Sunset Park-parts of Bay Ridge) said a bill he sponsored that has been signed into law will help school-based health centers. The new law creates a personal income tax check-off box for taxpayers who make donations to the school-based health centers. “School-based health centers are often the first line of defense against hospitalization for many school-aged children and youth,” Ortiz said in a statement. He added that part of his goal in sponsoring the bill was to increase children’s access to health care. “Of the 248 school-based health centers in New York State 60 percent are located in New York City, and 10 are located in the 51st Assembly district. Few of these centers offer mental health services that help patients with depression, anxiety and early stages of eating disorders, but this new income tax check-off box will help provide funding that will expand services and develop new sites to provide these vital health services. Let’s make every effort to ensure funding streams for these centers,” Ortiz said in a statement. – PK

LAWMAKERS WANT 9/11 VICTIM FUND MADE PERMANENT A bipartisan group of lawmakers, including U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-parts of Manhattan-Brooklyn-Bensonhurst), is calling for the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund to be made permanent. The fund, which pays for health care for first responders who become sick with certified 9/11 illnesses, could run out of funding before its expiration date in 2020, according to the elected officials. The lawmakers announced that they have introduced legislation to re-authorize and fund the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF) permanently. The legislation has been introduced in the House by Nadler, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-Manhattan-North Brooklyn), and Rep. Peter King (R-Long Island), and in the Senate by U.S. Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York) and Cory Gardner (R-Colorado), and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York). “For tens of thousands of responders and survivors living with and dying from 9/11-related illnesses, and the thousands more who may not yet know they are sick, the tragedy of 9/11 continues,” Nadler said in a statement. “It is imperative that we make the VCF permanent, just as the World Trade Center Health Program was made permanent in 2015, and ensure that no one suffering from 9/11-related illnesses is left unable to provide for their family.” Schumer said the nation cannot take the chance of the VCF running out of money. “We fought for and passed the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund to provide peace of mind to those sickened after the horrific attack. For too many, ailments and disease from exposure to that toxic airborne brew have taken years to show up and, as the need for the fund grows, the chance it may not have adequate resources to take care of our heroes is just unacceptable,” Schumer stated. – PK

DEUTSCH: WE MUST REMAIN VIGILANT AS CITY LAUNCHES NEW EVITAL PROGRAM On the eve of the relaunch of a new and controversial city program for issuing death certificates and burial permits, City Councilmember Chaim Deutsch convened a meeting at the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) Headquarters that included elected officials, representatives from the mayor’s office, and a contingent of concerned Jewish and Muslim community leaders and funeral directors. The concerns stemmed from last year’s failed rollout of the new program, known as eVital, which

crashed just 40 minutes after going live, resulting in funerals being significantly delayed, in some cases for days, and necessitating a temporary return to the old system. Deutsch had previously led a conversation with stakeholders and the DOHMH in mid-July, to offer activists the opportunity to present their Photo courtesy of Chaim Deutsch concerns to the team responsible for managing the program. added, “Jewish and Muslim leaders Deutsch said that while he was came together and joined forces on pleased with the results of last week’s this important matter, which affects meeting, he “will keep a vigilant our communities in a similar way.” watch over what transpires.” He - JA

Treyger noted that there have been troubling reports involving school buses failing to show up to pick up students and that concerns have been raised over the practices used to hire school bus drivers and methods used to discipline wrongdoing. The council is considering several pieces of legislation aimed at increasing safety for student riding school buses. – PK

Malliotakis shared the floor with executives, academics and fellow public sector leaders who shared ideas about how to connect, design and implement innovative rebuilding, repairing and improving strategies in New York. Malliotakis’ panel specifically focused on the transportation needs of New York and what changes should be implemented to improve safety and efficiency.

“As a representative of two outer boroughs, I know firsthand the critical need for more transportation options in New York City,” Malliotakis said. “Significant portions of our city face one of the longest commutes in our country and even the areas that are served by the subway are inconvenienced by crowding, delays and broken down trains. Our transportation system is in desperate need of change.” -JA
