The proposal to scrap the SHSAT would require approval from the state Legislature. At one point, Carranza

got into a testy exchange with Lekakis after Lekakis asked the chancellor if he worried that by changing the admissions process, elite high schools would start to see their lofty reputations decline.

“I don’t think the city or the mayor knows what this plan, if implemented, is going to do to the reputation of those schools,” Lekakis told Carranza. Carranza called that notion “highly offensive.”

The idea that “if you provide opportunity to some kids you are taking opportunity away from others really falls flat,” Carranza said. CEC 20 Treasurer Inga Smolyar noted that District 20, which has 54,000 students, has schools that are vastly overcrowded. If local students don’t get a shot at attending elite high schools, “our high schools will become even more overcrowded,” she said. At several points during the town hall, Carranza sought to dispute the idea that specialized high schools are the only places where students could receive a great education. “The notion that you can only receive a quality education at a specialized high school is false,” he said. The remark drew boos from the audience. Carranza maintained that it’s unfair to base admission solely on a test. He said the city is looking at establishing additional criteria, including teacher recommendations.

P.S. 177 asking potential donors to come forward BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

en-year-old Khadijah Sabir longs for the day when she can be just like other kids her age. The Bensonhurst fifth grader loves reading, writing, drawing and making fluffy slime. But Khadijah can’t do a lot of things children her age can do because of her health. Khadijah has suffered from chronic kidney failure for more than a year and desperately needs a kidney transplant. She is hoping a donor steps forward to help her. “I pray everyday that God can send me someone to give me their kidney. I want to live a normal life like other kids my age,” she wrote on her page on the National Kidney Registry’s (NKR) website. “I’m unable to do many activities with my cousins and siblings because of the catheter I have in my abdomen.” Khadijah, who is a

Industry City rezoning application delayed in response to pols’ objections BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

T

he brakes have been put on Industry City’s rezoning plans. After a week of controversy — with local elected officials demanding that the community be consulted — it was announced by the Department of City Planning on March 8 that Industry City had agreed to delay kicking off its rezoning application and the public review process (ULURP) that it entails. The process was originally supposed to begin at the March 11 meeting of the City Planning Commission. The plan incorporates a 10-year, $1 billion redevelopment that would increase IC’s total usable space from 5.3 to 6.6 million square feet and create 15,000 on-site jobs through the building of hotels, as well as additional retail space and academic centers. “In consideration of the request made by our City Councilmember and community board, Industry City has agreed to postpone public review of the proposed rezoning

Industry City has agreed to delay filing its rezoning application to allow community involvement to continue. of the property,” said Lisa Serbaniewicz, an Industry City spokesperson, who pointed out the growth that Industry City has brought to the area over the past several years. Currently, 7,500 people are employed at over 500 businesses, within the complex, a nearly 400 percent growth in the number of jobs over the last five years. Councilmember Carlos

Menchaca and Community Board 7 Chair Cesar Zuniga, who had written to Industry City CEO Andrew Kimball earlier in the week suggesting the postponement of the application, were pleased with the news. “This is the right call and we thank Industry City for living up to its prior commitments to engage with the Sunset Park community by delaying its ULURP

application,” they wrote in a joint statement. “In addition to needing time to complete the community engagement process started last year, a critical and transparent analysis of the rezoning proposal’s possible impacts on displacement must be analyzed before starting ULURP. We look forward to working with Industry City in a community-led process

to ensure the rezoning proposal benefits the entire Sunset Park community.” Not long before the announcement of the delay was made, Rep. Nydia Velázquez, Rep. Jerrold Nadler and State Sen. Zellnor Myrie wrote a joint letter to DCP Director and CPC Chairperson Marisa Lago advocating for the delay of IC’s application rezoning plan.

The three elected officials contended that rezoning could lead to displacement, rising rents, pollution and congestion. “This would not only counter our efforts of the past 20 years to restore Brooklyn’s industrial position but supercharge the displacement and gentrification that is undermining Sunset Park’s affordability and blue-collar job base,” they wrote. From CB7’s perspective, said Zuniga, “We just feel like we need a little bit more time to close the loop on what we think of as the community-led process. We feel like there’s still a lot to wrap our collective heads around and more community that we still want to hear from. Let’s not rush the process. If the application were to be released, it would just feel rushed to us and it would undermine the work that we put in so far.” That’s something that Industry City accepts. “We fully appreciate the desire to continue that meaningful economic growth while ensuring it aligns with the broader needs of the entire community,” said Serbaniewicz.

MTA speeds up subway trains BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

B

rooklyn’s commuters are getting where they’re going quicker these days — the borough’s subway system is getting faster, according to MTA New York City Transit. The city agency issued a report on March 11 showing that since the late summer 2018, a committee overseeing the Save Safe Seconds Campaign approved faster speeds at 100 subway stations. To date, more than 50 subway stations have faster trains, according to transit officials. As part of the Save Safe Seconds Campaign, the city’s MTA sought to increase the speed of trains coming into and out of subway stations in an effort to decrease overall trip time. For example, R trains

departing the terminal at 95th Street in Bay Ridge now travel at 15 mph instead of 10 mph. R trains departing the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center station are also running 10 mph faster than before. In certain instances, the city’s MTA is also allowing trains to speed up in between stations. No. 4 and 5 trains are now traveling 35 mph between Grand Army Plaza and the Brooklyn Museum. More than 20 new locations have received speed limit increases since the last time transit officials updated the program on Jan. 21. To jump start the new program, a SPEED Unit was formed last summer as part of the Save Safe Seconds Campaign launched by NYC Transit President Andy Byford and led by Senior

Vice President for Subways Sally Librera. SPEED stands for Subway Performance Evaluation, Education and Development. The unit, made up of transit workers, has looked at every mile of track in the subway system over the last several months, conducting tests to determine whether or not certain segments of track might be able to support higher speeds without compromising safety, according to MTA NYCT. “Since I first arrived here, I have been relentless about identifying ways to improve our daily operations and bring better service to the millions who ride our trains each day,” Byford said in a statement. “By meticulously examining places where trains can go faster safely, we are bringing tangible daily benefits to our customers.”

Ebrooklyn media/file photo

Subway trains have been getting faster, according to New York City Transit. In addition to testing for raising speed limits, the SPEED Unit is also studying the accuracy of speed regulating signals. Since the summer, more than 95 percent of the 2,000 signals have been tested. Approximately 350 faulty timer signals have been discovered, according to transit officials, who said 105 of the signals have been

recalibrated. The goal is to have all of the trains throughout the transit system running faster eventually. Transit officials predicted that riders should be seeing noticeable improvements in their commute times. Transit advocates applauded the program but said more needs to be done. “Andy Byford’s speed

increases are great for riders,” said Danny Pearlstein, policy director for the Riders Alliance, via email. “Now the legislature needs to pass congestion pricing to pay for his plan to actually fix the subway. New signals, subway cars, and station elevators are essential to the modern, reliable subway New Yorkers deserve.”

T

he stage at William McKinley I.S. 259 took on a nautical feel earlier this month as students put on a seaworthy live action production of “The Little Mermaid.” The play is based on the 1989 Disney animated feature film, which itself was based on an original Danish fairytale written by Hans

Christian Andersen. The full-scale production tells the story of Ariel, a 16-year-old mermaid princess who dreams of becoming human. She lives under the sea surrounded by her best friend Flounder and Scuttle the seagull. She ignores her father King Triton’s warnings and ultimately falls in love with the human Prince Eric. The movie introduced such memorable Alan Menken and Howard Ashman songs

as “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World” and “Kiss the Girl. McKinley’s production of “The Little Mermaid” was directed by drama teacher John Gibson with music adapted and arranged by David Weinstein. According to English teacher Jessica Amato, the play was a true crowd pleaser. “Over 100 middle school students participated in the production, which encompassed acting, singing,

dancing, creating costumes, set design, providing proper  lighting, student  choreography and numerous  after-school rehearsals,” Amato told this paper. School Principal Janice Geary was exceptionally proud of her students’ efforts. “The collaboration of this community event was a great highlight for McKinley, also known as ‘The Pride of Bay Ridge,’” said Geary. “We are so proud of our students. They always

amaze us. Their talents are endless, resulting in a priceless performance. Our McKinley family applauds their hard work and efforts to engage family, friends and members of the  Bay Ridge community.”   Mary Ryan, a  long-time Bay Ridge resident, was first to jump up to offer students a standing ovation, “It’s such a beautiful school! The students were great,” said Ryan. “The costumes and singing were extraordinary!

We especially appreciated the chef, who was played by Maximus Amadeo!” Following the performance, Gibson proudly introduced his students, gave thanks to all involved and explained to a smiling audience that he is grateful that he gets to do what he loves most, teaching drama and performance art for the enjoyment of all. “His passion is exemplified through the work of his students,” added Amato. 

Omar controversy over anti-Semitism hits home for Rose BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he controversial comments about Jews and Israeli influence on American politics made by Minnesota U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar that sent Washington into a frenzy hit home for U.S. Rep. Max Rose, the first Jewish-American to be elected in his congressional district. Rose, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, parts of Bensonhurst and all of Staten Island, was among the House members voting in favor of a resolution condemning all forms of bigotry in the wake of statements by Omar that set off a firestorm of controversy and led to charges of anti-Semitism against her. “For those who have magically found their strength

to tackle bigotry in our country, I would remind them it doesn’t take courage to condemn hate in another party, but it takes character to stand up to your own,” Rose said in a statement apparently aimed at fellow Democrats reluctant to call out Omar. The resolution, which did not single out anti-Semitism but instead condemned all forms of intolerance, was passed by the House by an overwhelming margin of 407-23 on March 7. Republicans accused the Democratic-led House of watering down the resolution and criticized the Democrats for not solely condemning anti-Semitic hatred. Omar, a Democrat and one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress, got herself in hot water in February when she

wrote a tweet on Twitter in response to a journalist’s tweet about House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy’s threats to punish her and another congressmember for criticizing Israel. In her response, Omar wrote, “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” a lyric from a Puff Daddy song referring to $100 bills. Omar’s tweet drew sharp criticism from people who charged her with advancing negative stereotypes about Jews and money. Omar faced even more condemnation after she appeared at a recent event in a Washington, D.C. bookstore and asserted that pro-Israeli groups push U.S. lawmakers to pledge allegiance to Israel. “I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says it is okay for people to push for

“It takes character to stand up to your own,” U.S. Rep. Max Rose said of the controversy surrounding fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar. allegiance to a foreign country. I want to ask why is it okay for me to talk about the influence of the NRA, of fossil fuel industries or Big

Pharma, and not talk about a powerful lobbying group that is influencing policies?” National Public Radio quoted Omar as saying. Rose took offense at the comment. “Every single American has the right to criticize the actions of a foreign government, Israel or otherwise. But, as the first Jewish congressman from Staten Island, I reject the insinuation that because I, and colleagues like me, support Israel’s right to exist, I am somehow disloyal to the country that I’ve served in uniform and in Congress,” said Rose, a U.S. Army veteran who fought in Afghanistan. “Anti-Semitism isn’t a game,” the local pol added. But the Working Families Party defended Omar, issuing a statement pointing out that the freshman lawmaker has faced threats

because she is a Muslim. “In January, Rep. Ilhan Omar became one of the first two Muslim women ever elected to Congress. Ever since, she has found herself under sustained and coordinated attack from the white nationalist, extremist right. Death threats in her own district. Elected Republicans shamelessly linking her to 9/11. Calls for her to be expelled from Congress and worse,” party leaders wrote in a fundraising email. The Working Families Party also criticized Democratic leaders who were not defending Omar. “When West Virginia Republicans displayed a poster effectively calling Rep. Omar a terrorist, there was no outrage from Democratic leadership in Congress,” party leaders wrote.

What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into

cloying sweetness and the faint sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s painful and hard, but also carries the potential for profound transformation. When We Were Strangers is the first part of a lifelong project deconstructing love through the prism of our relationship. This first chapter is a love poem of sorts, one that charts what happens when two people attempt to become something more and less than that, when we are more unknown stranger to each other than anything else. But love is an ouroboros that eats the past that came before it. Who was I before you? We are interested in the frayed edges, the messy intersections, the elements of ourselves lost and new facets gained in the process, and the limits to all of that. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 22nd, 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/United Photo Industries (16 Main Street)

OTHER WAYS OF KNOWING In our modern society, imagery is read instantly and without question. Other Ways of Knowing looks at how we see in order to challenge how we acquire knowledge. By questioning our relationship to images, we can look at the ways we’re fed imagery on a daily basis and teach us how to discern for ourselves what that imagery means to us. Other Ways of Knowing references illusion and misdirection traditionally designed to influence choice and transforms them into a new visual language. This digital iteration of Other Ways of Knowing features new additions to the series never exhibited before. The screens in the Made in NY Media Center will challenge the viewer to interact with a screen – a daily routine part of our lives – within a new context, one where you’re asked to stay for longer. This exhibition explores the narrative of the series in a new and refreshing way, accomplished by the unique collaboration of the space and the artist. When: Daily through March 31st Where: DUMBO/Made in N.Y. Media Center (30 John Street)

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY

Street)

For two years, Brooklynbased photojournalist Cinthya Santos Briones has photographed undocumented migrants who face orders of deportation. By taking up asylum in houses of worship, often for indefinite periods of time, these individuals and their families have found both a refuge and a provisional prison.

Rather than present portraits of people in hopeless situations, she has chosen to convey the universal routines of their everyday lives. Birthdays are celebrated, siblings tease one another, and meals are shared. When: Daily through April 7th, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Where: Green-Wood/GreenWood Cemetery (500 25th

They are displayed alongside important paintings, drawings, and photographs from the celebrated Jacques and Natasha Gelman

Five Favorite Sights in Crown Heights South

Start With Doctor’s Row and You Can’t Go Wrong By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Once upon a time, Brooklyn’s best surgeons congregated on President Street. It became a hot spot for medical professionals to live a century ago and earned the nickname Doctor’s Row, which endures to this day. The mansions that line President Street blocks between New York and Kingston avenues in Crown Heights South are gracious designs surrounded by lawns. Just a few blocks away, large-scale development is planned at the Spice Factory, whose address is 960 Franklin Ave. But on today’s wintry stroll, we’re sticking to Doctor’s Row and the immediately surrounding streets, where the housing stock is lovely and largely low-rise, and a sense of serenity pervades.

If you’re taking the subway to Crown Heights South, why not ride the 2 train to the President Street-Nostrand Avenue stop? It’s just a block away from Doctor’s Row.

‘IMPRESSIVE CONCENTRATION OF FREESTANDING MANSIONS’ A 1978 city Landmarks Preservation Commission report about a proposal to create a Crown Heights South Historic District provides details about numerous properties in the neighborhood — including homes on Doctor’s Row. The area did not win landmark designation, though it deserves to do so. Doctor’s Row is “one of the most impressive concentrations of freestanding mansions in the city,” the report says.

The houses were built between 1899 and 1930. They were designed in various architectural styles. For instance, 1290-1294 President St., which William Debus designed in 1911, has a neo-Renaissance-inspired flat roof and a Beaux-Arts Classical Revival-style portico, the report says. One of our favorite Doctor’s Row houses is 1281 President St. It’s clad in orangey-hued brick and has a big, beautiful round turret topped by a roof that’s shaped like a witch’s hat.

J.L. BRUSH DESIGNED THESE CARROLL STREET HOUSES Around the corner from Doctor’s Row, there’s a second spot that’s a favorite of ours — the Carroll Street block between Kingston and Albany avenues.

Eye on CROWN HEIGHTS

This Doctor's Row house at 1281 President St. has a terrific turret.

Pretty porches grace 1298 President St. at left and 1290-1294 President St. at right on this Doctor's Row block.

Five Favorite Sights in Crown Heights South — Continued from page 12INB — On the end of the block near the Kingston Avenue intersection, there’s a row of sophisticated red-brick houses with squared-off facades topped by tiny roofs. Above the roofs, there are decorative brick elements that look a bit like crowns.

Near that corner, you’ll see the landmark-worthy Loews Kameo Theatre, which opened in 1925, a posting on the website Cinema Treasures says. A church currently owns the dramatic property at 530 Eastern Parkway.

There’s an eye-catching row of brick rowhouses with rectangular facades and dramatic windowsills. Out front, there’s a shrubbery hedge like you’d see in the suburbs. Further down the block, there are handsome standalone brick houses. The porches are brick, too, which is interesting looking.

SEMI-DETACHED BROWNSTONES ON CARROLL STREET Next we’re circling back to Carroll Street, to a sweet block between Nostrand and New York avenues. It has pairs of brownstones with curvy facades. Each pair stands together like it’s a single house.

LIMESTONE ROWS ON NEW YORK AVENUE

Standalone houses with distinctive brick porches can be found at 443 Crown St. at right and 441 Crown St. at left. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan These houses are very eye-pleasing. Further down the block, there’s a row of bow-front brownstone and limestone houses the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s report says are “among the finest groupings” in the proposed historic district. Their addresses are 1401 to 1425 Carroll St. Brooklyn architect J.L. Brush designed them in 1913, the report says.

CHARMING CROWN STREET

Around another corner, the Crown Street block between Kingston and Brooklyn avenues has an intriguing juxtaposition of old-fashioned housing stock.

When you get to the corner of New York Avenue, turn left to find our fifth fine sight in Crown Heights South. On both sides of the block between Carroll and President streets, there are rows of cylindrical limestone houses. They have such a classic look. Of course there will be other things you’ll want to see. There’s eye candy everywhere you turn in Crown Heights South. When you’re ready to depart, why not head to the Eastern Parkway-Nostrand Avenue 3 train station?

ON MARCH 12, 1943, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Washington, March 12 (U.P.) — Rationing of meat, canned meat, canned fish, butter, cheese, edible fats and oils will begin at midnight, March 28, on a basis giving Americans nearly twice as much meat and fats but only half as much cheese as the British are getting. Price Administrator Prentiss M. Brown announced the new rationing program today after Secretary of Agriculture Wickard authorized it last night. Sixteen points per consumer will be allowed for all of the new rationed foods and the consumer can decide upon which of the items he prefers to spend his points. Point values are now being decided and will be announced during the week of March 22 … The new meat-fatscheese rationing program will leave only a few items of food unrationed – such as fresh and frozen fish, poultry and game, breads, cereals and flour, fresh fruits and fresh vegetables.”

Josephine Augello, President 5015 New Utrecht Ave. Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 13, 1928

ON MARCH 13, 1928, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Los Angeles, March 13 (AP) — More than 100 persons were swept to death early today in San Francisquito Canyon, north of here, when St. Francis dam, impounding part of Los Angeles water supply, burst and unloosed a 75-foot wall of water into the narrow valley. Officials expressed fear that the death toll might reach 400. A telegram received at the sheriff’s office here from Eugene Biscailluz, under sheriff in charge of rescue work, said that 100 bodies had been recovered where the flood waters entered the Santa Paula and Santa Clara rivers. Ten bodies were taken from the canyon this morning and were placed in a morgue at Saugus. What caused the retaining parapet of the great reservoir to give way suddenly was almost as much of a mystery as the number of dead that lay buried beneath the deep covering of yellow sand which now carpets the pretty little valley.”

ON MARCH 14, 1939, the Eagle reported, “Bratislava, Slovakia, March 14 (U.P.) — Slovakia proclaimed its independence of Czechoslovakia and Josef Tiso was named president and premier of a new republic of Slovakia at a German-sponsored meeting of the Slovak Parliament today. Prof. Albert Tuka, veteran Separatist leader, was named foreign minister. Thus the post-war Republic of Czechoslovakia collapsed under the military threat of Nazi Germany’s ‘march to the east.’ The Central Czechoslovak Cabinet at Prague, bowing to Hitler’s ultimatum, resigned and announced the dissolution of the Czechoslovakian state. As the new republic was proclaimed, Hungarian troops battled their way into Czechoslovakia and the government sent an ultimatum to Prague demanding within 24 hours withdrawal of Czech troops from Carpatho-Ukraine. The Hungarian troops, it was officially said in Budapest, had marched into Carpatho-Ukraine on a 15-mile front … German troops, massed near the border, were expected to cross into Czech territory at any time.”

For St. Anselm first graders, learning to count is fun! BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

t Saint Anselm Catholic Academy, 100 isn’t just a number. In an effort to make learning about numbers fun, teacher Josephine Ghorra, who teaches first grade in the Bay Ridge school, gave the six-year-olds an interesting assignment. The kids had to keep track of the number of days they have been in class since the beginning of the term. When the 100th day of the term arrived last month, the students celebrated by coming to school dressed as centenarians, complete with gray hats and reading glasses. “One hundred never looked so young!” said John Quaglione, chairperson of the academy’s Board of Directors. St. Anselm Catholic Academy is located at 365 83rd St. Ghorra added to the sense of fun by planning a variety of activities for the children, including games

Teacher Josephine Ghorra and her first grade students celebrated the 100th day of school in a special way. centered on the number 100. book “100 Snowmen” by Jen Under her direction, the Arena. students had a ball dancing Leading up to the 100th for 100 seconds, creating a day, the first graders had a picture using 100 items “Number of the Day” each they brought from home, day and took part in solving making a tower by stacking math problems stemming 100 cubes and reading the from that number. As each

day passed, the kids placed a new coffee stirrer in a folder to mark the time. The stirrers were placed in groups of 10. While the day featured fun-filled activities, there was a serious purpose

behind the games, school officials said. The goal was to teach the children about numbers in a practical, real-life way. “Everyone who attends or works at a school knows that the 100th day of school

is a big deal,” Quaglione told this newspaper. “I am sure that these students will never forget this special day, and these memories will be with them every 100th day of school going forward.”

Kassenbrock Luncheon honors civic leaders and helps raise money for scholarships BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

I

t seemed like every Bay Ridge elected official and community leader was at the Bay Ridge Manor on Sunday, March 10, to honor some of their own and help raise money for the Kassenbrock Brothers Memorial Scholarship Fund. The money goes to help high school students preparing for college. The Kassenbrock Fund honors the memory of Walter and Vincent Kassenbrock, two community leaders who founded the Bay Ridge Community Council in 1951. The organization is composed of prominent civic, business and religious groups in the areas of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. Last year, 16 deserving college-bound students from Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights or Fort Hamilton were awarded approximately $40,000 in grants ranging from $1,500 to $5,000. The award was based on their history of service to the community with each application having been reviewed and evaluated by the trustees of the fund. Each year, individuals or organizations are honored at the luncheon for their commitment to voluntary service within the community. This year’s honorees were the Rotary Club of Verrazzano and Nick Nikolopoulos, owner and executive pastry chef at Bay Ridge Bakery. Community Board 10 District Manager and Kassenbrock Scholarship Fund Assistant Administrator Josephine Beckmann introduced Nikolopoulos, who

U.S. Rep. Max Rose with Renee Dorsa. was born and raised in Bay Ridge where his parents opened Bay Ridge Bakery in 1972. He learned to be a pastry chef from his father and after college he attended the French Culinary Institute in New York. In addition to working at the Bay Ridge Bakery, Nikolopoulos has also opened up a gluten free bakery in New Jersey. Nikolopoulos recalled receiving the Kassenbrock Scholarship in 1993 when he was at Xaverian. “I will never forget receiving this award because it was unexpected and at 18 years old receiving something like this means so much,” he said. He encouraged all kids to pursue community service because “it’s so important to be involved.” The Rotary Club of Verrazzano was chartered in

There are more than 30,000 Rotary Clubs in 160 countries worldwide claiming 1.2 million members. They work to help feed the hungry, procure open heart surgeries for children overseas and support a variety of local projects. The Verrazzano group supports many benevolent organizations such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Gift of Life. The organization is also active within the Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights

communities by supporting the Guild for Exceptional Children, sponsoring turkey drives at Thanksgiving for the hungry and homeless, and presenting gift cards to the children of service members at Fort Hamilton Army Base, among many other charitable endeavors. “There are 35 professionals in this Rotary Club,” said Kassenbrock Scholarship Fund administrator Barbara Vellucci. “They are comprised of people from

all walks of life and all professions who share their personal time and personal funds, and raise additional funds to help those who are in need. . . These men we honor today never ask for recognition. They never boast about what they do. But the results of what they do is life-changing.” Rotary Club members accepting the award included President Enrico Ferrara, Dr. Joseph Caruana, Aldo Adamo, Patrick Colabella, Frank Di Marco, Joe Speziale and Ralph Succar. State Sen. Andrew Gounardes presented the honorees with citations and said that he was also a recipient of the Kassenbrock Scholarship when he was in high school. “The money that I received from this program helped me go on to CUNY Hunter, so I want to thank you personally for all the work that you do to make sure that access to higher education is there for so many of the young people in our community, because it’s getting harder and harder for kids to

afford college today,” said Gounardes. U.S. Rep. Max Rose spoke about his work promoting education in Washington. “We’re doing our job on the government side, you’re doing your job on the community side and together we’re going to make sure that all of our kids graduate and have full careers without the burden of having student loans,” Rose added. Other community leaders in attendance were Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, former State Sen. Marty Golden, former City Councilmember Vincent Gentile and current City Councilmember Justin Brannan. “In addition to all the parades and festivals we have, the Kassenbrock Scholarship is probably one of the most special traditions we have in this neighborhood,” said Brannan. “It’s not only about academics, it’s about giving back and community service . . . It’s important to give back to the community that gave you so much and raised you up.”

OPINION KEEP CASH BAIL

he governor and Democratic leadership of the state legislature will likely move to eliminate cash bail. The foundation of the American judicial system is simple: Innocent until proven guilty. However, sometimes the culprit’s crime is so heinous, the safety of the community is at stake. Persons who commit crimes are innocent until proven guilty, but society must also consider the impact and safety of the victims. Cash bail is a means that helps keep the perpetrator from fleeing trial. It is highly unusual that a first-time offender accused of non-violent and/or misdemeanor crimes would be remanded to jail and requested to post bail.

The current crimes being considered for elimination of cash bail include child pornography, sex trafficking and non-A felony drug trafficking. These crimes are classified as misdemeanors and seemingly non-violent; however when they are chronic, the safety of the public must be considered. Based on the credo that defendants are innocent until proven guilty, Kerry Kennedy established a charity to bail out women and youths 16 and 17 years old from Rikers Island indiscriminately, essentially paying their bail so they could return to their lives. It has been documented that, in a disturbing number of cases, instead of taking the opportunity to better their lives, those who benefited chose to continue to inflict

harm on society. Had they not been bailed out, society would have been safer. While we all agree that in America one is innocent until proven guilty, unfortunately, many times it is the culprit who establishes otherwise.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Amazon Is Done — Let’s Promote Small Business Columnist’s Note: This week I’m pleased to share “Focus” space with Bob Howe — an attorney, community leader and a true Bay Ridgeite. For more than 25 years, Bob and wife Diana (mother of their four very fine kids) have been visible and hardworking volunteers involved in dozens of defining civic events, ranging from community clean-ups to our cherished Ragamuffin Parade and the more recent extremely popular Friday night Summer Stroll on 3rd program. The difference between Third Avenue and other business thoroughfares in this city is that so many of the businesspeople — like Howe, who has maintained a law office on Third his entire career — live here, raise their families here and give back to the community for a special reason: Bay Ridge is their community. Howe’s job now, as he sees it, is to help guide Third Avenue into the digital age and, at the same time, lend all possible support to those businesses on the avenue that simply can’t compete in many ways with mass mailorder giants such as Amazon. His good deeds have earned him the Bay Ridge Community Council’s coveted Civic Award, and he has been honored as a marshal of the Ragamuffin Parade. Brick-and-mortar stores pay more taxes per product sale to the city, state and federal government. Their reward for success against incredible odds: more taxes, higher rents. Howe, Brian Chin and other leaders are working hard — again, as volunteers — to “save” our local economy by converting

Third Avenue into a Business Improvement District, which would enlist the support of hundreds of business and property owners so that the Merchants of Third Avenue can fashion a modern, interactive cyber marketing apparatus that would actually lure foot traffic to the avenue instead of encouraging people to stay at home and look out for the UPS truck. Oh, I almost forgot to mention this: On top of all of the above, Howe is recognized as one of the top property and real estate lawyers in the borough. Without further ado, here are Howe’s pertinent and poignant remarks: “The March 8 ‘Focus on Bay Ridge’ column got it right about Amazon. Economists and business schools will study the Amazon collapse for decades to come, but what will be missing is the discussion of the role small business plays in the New York City economy and the incentives those businesses need to stay open. “Compare the alleged 25,000 jobs to the hundreds of thousands of jobs created and maintained by small business. Small business never has and never will see the tax incentives and regulatory relaxation lavished at the door of Jeff Bezos. What small business has seen is higher taxes, increased regulations, imposition of higher wages and a mentality of imposing fines. “As the president of the Merchants of Third Avenue, I have always told the community that Bay Ridge has the hardiest merchants in all of New York City. Our merchants persevere through economic chaos, bad

The crowd gathers at the 2018 Summer Stroll on 3rd.

Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe, Co-Treasurer Brian Chin and Verena Mentzel-Otey enjoy last year’s Summer Stroll on 3rd. weather, online shopping and a never-ending parade of health inspectors, consumer affairs folks, fire department, labor department, finance department and building department inspectors, all who seem to find something to issue a fine about. “Recently on Third Avenue there has been a concern about store vacancies. Store vacancies are a natural occurrence and happen for a variety of reasons. The avenue has about a seven percent vacancy rate; compare that with almost a 15 percent rate citywide. Nonetheless, any vacancy is too much. Recently, Paws Truly was rumored to be closing, but thankfully partnered up with another longtime merchant in Apple Tree. Both are longtime merchants who daily fight the online giants and other vagaries of a brick-and-mortar business, and Third Avenue is better for that.

“While we wait for a lifeline or take matters into our own hands — and because of a generous grant from our Councilmember Justin Brannan — Third Avenue is able to explore a Business Improvement District. I prefer to say a Business Investment District. The focus of the BID will be on marketing, promotion and repeat that 10 times. “There are some naysayers, which is hard to believe since we are only in the formative stage, but something must be done and doing nothing should not be an option. Amazon, no matter what you think of it, has been able to harness the business energy of hundreds of thousands of small businesses through its platform. Third Avenue has approximately 400 businesses that could be harnessed with a BID. Who knows? We may start our own small rainforest on Third.”

Car crashes into Bath Beach deli, patron slaps driver BY TODD MAISEL EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

two-car collision Thursday morning sent a vehicle careening into a Cropsey Avenue deli, culminating in the arrest of a former store employee who, authorities say, assaulted the driver. Cops say that a 75-yearold woman was driving her Nissan Sentra near Bay 25th Street and Cropsey Avenue

shortly before 9 a.m. when her car was struck by a FedEx van. Authorities say the van hit the rear of the vehicle, but witnesses allege that the driver of the commercial vehicle said she hit the car lightly and that the Nissan driver kept going — straight into the front of the Royal Deli at 2024 Cropsey Ave. The Nissan crashed through the door and windows of the store, mangling racks of merchandise and

Neither the elderly driver nor the woman accused of assault have been identified. The driver was taken to NYU Langone-Brooklyn to be evaluated, and the woman who hit her was arrested. The cause of the crash is
