outpatient program” at the location. Officials from the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene were cc'd on the letter. The Feb. 22 letter marked the second time in less than two years that the 1751 Bath Ave. building has come to the community board’s attention. A representative of an entity known as G Cap Holdings contacted the community board in December of 2017 to describe plans to open a facility there to help drug users overcome their addictions. But Elias-Pavia said the community board was left with the impression that the facility would primarily function as a counseling center and that medications would not be dispensed at the location. “It now looks like the plans have changed,” Elias-Pavia told the Brooklyn Reporter on Monday.

Big Apple Bath Avenue Inc. plans to seek approval from New York State to open an outpatient chemical dependency program at this site at 1751 Bath Ave. Guarinello told members his objection is based solely on the specific location and not the idea of a drug treatment center in the community board area, per se. “We have our share of people who need this

service,” he said. “We’re not doing NIMBY [‘Not In My Backyard’] here.” The community board wants to be part of the process and given the opportunity to offer a recommendation to OASAS, according to

Guarinello. “We don’t want to be left out,” he said. Evan Frost, a spokesperson at OASAS, said the agency has not received paperwork pertaining to the Bath Avenue site. “OASAS has not received an application from a provider to open a facility at this location. Without an application filed, we cannot comment on the details of what services would potentially be provided at a facility at this location,” he told the Brooklyn Reporter. Frost also sought to alleviate concerns that the community board would be left out of the process should an application be filed. “As part of the application process, OASAS works with local governments, as well as community organizations when choosing where to place treatment facilities. This includes a requirement that providers notify the local community board, whose input is taken into consideration,” he said. Big Apple could not be reached for comment.

No drug clinic at Bath Avenue site, building owner says BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he owner of a Bath Beach building where a private firm is seeking to open a drug treatment center poured cold water on the plan and said she would not be renting the space to that company. Diana Clemente reached out to the Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator Monday evening after the newspapers’ website, Brooklyn Reporter posted an article about a proposal by an entity called Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. to open a chemical dependency program at 1751 Bath Ave. “There will be no drug treatment center there,” said Clemente, who is also president of Big Apple Car Inc., the car service company housed in the Bath Avenue building. Clemente said Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. had been seeking to rent the entire first floor but that she had decided instead to rent the space to a car and limousine service that will work in tandem with Big Apple Car Inc. But Community Board 11 officials, who expressed a great deal of concern over the proposed drug treatment center, said they’re not breathing easier, even after Clemente’s statement.

Board 11 District Manager Marnee Elias-Pavia said the board still has a lot of questions about the proposal and has invited representatives of Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. to speak at the board’s next meeting. “We asked them to give us a presentation at our April meeting,” Elias-Pavia said Tuesday. As recently as Feb. 22, the plan to set up a drug treatment center still appeared to be viable, according to community board leaders. Chairperson William Guarinello told board members at their March 14 meeting that the board received a letter on Feb. 22 in which a representative of Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. announced an intention to seek approval from the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) open a chemical dependency program at 1751 Bath Ave. Guarinello said his concern was heightened by the fact that it wasn’t clear from the letter if methadone or other medications would be dispensed to patients at the location, something the board would be dead set against. The Bath Avenue location has come to the community board’s attention before in connection with a drug

treatment program. A representative of an entity known as G Cap Holdings contacted the community board in September of 2017 to describe plans to open a facility there to help drug users overcome their addictions. Elias-Pavia said the community board was left with the impression that the facility would primarily function as a counseling center and that medications would not be dispensed at the location. The board voted to send a letter of “no objection” to the proposal. But the board also added a proviso saying that it strongly preferred that the program concentrate on counseling services. The board was later notified that G Cap Holdings had changed its name to Big Apple Bath Beach Inc., Guarinello said. The Bath Avenue site is not a good location for a full-fledged drug treatment center, according to Guarinelo, who said the building is located in the vicinity of churches and schools, he said. “We don’t think it’s the right place,” Guarinello said. Community boards serve in a strictly advisory capacity and cannot stop a facility from opening.

Senate Dems demand riders get vote on MTA board GOUNARDES CAMPAIGNED FOR PASSENGER REPRESENTATION BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

W

ith the deadline fast approaching for the state legislature to finalize a state budget, the Democratic State Senate majority released a proposed spending package on March 12 that included an idea freshman Sen. Andrew Gounardes campaigned on: Giving subway riders a vote on the MTA board. The Senate majority’s proposed budget includes a new bill called the MTA RAIL Act that would give MTA riders a voting seat on the board. It would mean riders would have a direct say in key transit issues such as whether to raise fares. Under state law, the budget has to be finalized by April 1. Gounardes, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and several other Southwest Brooklyn

neig hborhood s, made rider representation on the MTA board part of his campaign platform when he ran for the senate in November. He supports the Senate majority’s budget package. “We were sent to Albany to give voters the responsive, productive government they deserve,” Gounardes said in a statement. “The Senate majority’s proposal demonstrates that we are finally listening to the concerns of all New Yorkers and are set to work with the Assembly and governor to pass an on-time budget.” The fiscal package “will finally give riders a true voice on the MTA board,” Gounardes added. The proposed budget also includes congestion pricing, the concept of charging motorists a fee to drive into Manhattan south of 60th Street to provide funding for the MTA for transit repairs and upgrades. Danny Pearlstein, policy and communications director for the advocacy organization Riders Alliance, said the proposed budget

ebrooklyn media/File photo by Mary Frost

The budget proposed by the State Senate majority contains many transit-related items, including congestion pricing to pay for subway repairs. Pictured is the Clark Street station in Brooklyn Heights. demonstrates a commitment from lawmakers to come up with serious ways to raise revenue for transit services. “It is now up to legislative leaders and the governor to

hammer out a final plan for congestion pricing,” Pearlstein told this paper. “As the April 1 budget deadline nears, riders are looking to our lawmakers in Albany

for a comprehensive transit funding plan. Congestion pricing remains the largest transit-specific revenue stream on the table, and the only one that will cut traffic,

pollution and dangerous collisions.” Here are other highlights of the Senate majority’s proposed state budget: •Legalizing recreational use of marijuana for adults. •Extending mayoral control of the New York City school system for another three years until 2022. •Banning plastic bags and instituting a fee for paper carryout bags. •Providing $40 million for community outreach for the US. Census in 2020 to ensure that New York is not undercounted. The Senate plans to hold public hearings and informational meetings around the city on the effectiveness of mayoral control of schools. Gov. Andrew Cuomo released his executive budget on Jan. 15. The governor, the State Senate and the State Assembly will now negotiate to come up with a final budget.

Attention Shoppers! Target to open store at Caesar’s Bay BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

I

t’s the dawn of a new era at the legendary Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center. The famous shopping Mecca on the Gravesend waterfront is getting a Target department store next year. News of the Target plans came on the heels of another major development: the arrival of an Olive Garden restaurant in April. The New York Post was the first to report of the plans by the owners of Target to set up shop at Caesar’s Bay at 8973 Bay Parkway. A spokesperson for Target confirmed the big news to the Brooklyn Reporter. “I can confirm Target plans to open a store in Brooklyn’s Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center in 2020. We’re excited to offer local guests an easy and convenient shopping experience and will have more details to share about the store as we get closer to opening,” the spokesperson said. Target is leasing a 90,000 square-foot space formerly occupied by Toys R US. The corporation that owns Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy protection in 2017. Caesar’s Bay Shopping Center, where generations of southwest Brooklyn residents have done their shopping for more than 50 years, sits on 14 acres on the waterfront in Gravesend. It is located on the corner of Bay Parkway and Shore

Parkway, next to the Shore Parkway Promenade. The expansive property is owned by Gazit Horizons, the North American subsidiary of Gazit Globe, a company based in Tel Aviv. Target also has other locations in Brooklyn, including one at 6401 18th Ave. in Bensonhurst and one at 1715 East 13th St. in Midwood. Target is leasing a 90,000 squarefoot space formerly occupied by Toys R US.

Caesar’s Bay is currently home to Kohl’s Department Store, as well as Best Buy, Modell’s and a Five Guys fast-food restaurant. Olive Garden, which has 892 restaurants worldwide, is set to open its doors at 1684 Shore Parkway in April. Steven Flory-Alexander, who will serve as general manager of the grand new eatery, told the Brooklyn Reporter in a recent interview that Olive Garden selected the area because the company was seeking a location that offered long-term growth opportunities. The Gravesend site will be the second Olive Garden to open in Brooklyn. The first is located at the Gateway Center in East New York. Additional reporting by John Alexander

Committees back site, with stips, after heated hearing on Nathan’s school BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

ensions were high Wednesday night at a packed public hearing about the nearly 600-seat middle school slated for the old Nathan’s lot on 86th Street. The meeting – held at P.S. 264 in Bay Ridge, a once-controversial site itself – pitted the audience (made up of mostly neighbors of the lot) against a pair of representatives from the School Construction Authority (SCA), who were there in conjunction with Community Board 10 to collect testimony to help guide the school’s design process. District 20 – which encompasses Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and portions of Sunset Park and Boro Park – is among the city’s most overcrowded, with a shortfall of nearly 11,000 seats. That statistic, CB 10 Education Committee Chair Barbara Vellucci contended, more than justifies the need for another school in the board’s catchment area, which includes Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. “It is a well-known fact that there is a need for schools in our district,” Vellucci said. “All of our current schools are over-utilized.” However, residents rejoined, 650 86th Street is simply not the place for one, citing pedestrian safety, congestion and parking. One resident, Ann Fawcett-Ambia, brought her own hand-drawn map, which highlighted, in red, areas like the entranceway to Gowanus Expressway, the nearby Ford dealership and a gas station at an already crowded intersection. Fran Vella-Marrone, president of the Dyker Heights Civic Association, seemed to sum up the feeling in the room by saying, “We all know the problem. We need a school, just not at this location.” SCA spokesperson Tamar Smith affirmed, though, that the site has already been acquired and the question that remains is not whether or not to build the school, but rather, how best to build it. “We are going to work this

plan,” she told the crowd, adding earlier that, “While siting schools in District 20 is essential, it’s not just at any cost.” Smith contended that the schools the SCA has built “do work,” and that the SCA does “work in partnership with agencies [like the Department of Transportation] to make them successful and safe.” However, many residents were wary of trusting that the DOT will take care of it – something CB 10 District Manager Josephine Beckmann told this paper she understands given past requests from residents and unfinished business with the area. “I think there’s a lot of anger about traffic in the area and I understand that, especially when so many of these residents have asked for help from the DOT in the past,” she said after the meeting. However, Beckmann stressed, it’s often a different story when a school is involved. “What we’ve learned from other school sitings is that the DOT does come out and that they do have a school safety team that really makes sure these things are going to happen,” she said. “But I do think that the sooner they come out, the better to examine this area in particular.” Beckmann also said she understands the desire for a supermarket at the site, something that has also been brought up with respect to the location, citing the recent closure of the Associated Market at 86th Street and Gelston Avenue. “I absolutely get it,” she said, “but at the end of the day, we also need new schools.” There was some support for the site Wednesday night, however – the final comment of the evening coming from a local resident and father of twin girls who, he said, would greatly benefit from the proposed school. “Where are we gonna put the kids? What’s your solution?” he demanded, the audience responding with jeers and boos. The crowd was so raucous that at one point Vellucci and board Chair Doris Cruz threatened to end the meeting early. “This is not

school overnight; that the SCA return to CB 10 every three months to discuss the design and that the SCA coordinate construction work hours for daytime, in consideration of neighbors. Councilmember Justin Brannan, who helped the SCA secure the site, stands by the current plan, but says he will also take residents’ concerns into consideration.

“Public safety is always my top priority and I take the feedback from neighbors very seriously. All the concerns we have heard about traffic and congestion will be studied, and I expect smart solutions to be determined and presented,” he told this paper. “That said, District 20 is one of the most overcrowded school districts in New York City, and we desperately need to build more schools. I refuse to allow reckless drivers to hold us hostage. Rest assured we will come up with a solution that will improve the education of our kids and keep everyone safe.” The 25,135-square-foot lot had been home to Nathan’s since the late ‘70s, before which it was a fast food burger chain named Wetson’s; prior to that, it was Mitchell’s Drive-In. Its most recent iteration also included an Arthur Treacher’s, which specializes in fast food fish and chips, both of which shuttered in early January. The full board will vote on the proposal on Monday. The board’s vote is advisory only. The SCA hopes to open the school in 2023.

Detective apprehends baby lamb after Gowanus Expressway adventure BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

arch is in like a lion, out like a lamb on the Gowanus Expressway, apparently. A baby lamb was rescued by an NYPD detective Wednesday morning after a brief adventure on the highway. “I was standing outside of my car when a motorist drove up next to me and said, ‘Officer, there’s a goat on the highway,’” Detective Dominick Gatto told reporters. That goat turned out to be a female lamb – a lamb now nicknamed Speedy. “People were passing by

at first,” Gatto said, adding that, eventually “a few people jumped out” to assist him in apprehending the animal. Former Councilmember Sal Albanese tweeted earlier Wednesday that a goat was seen galloping along Third Avenue in Bay Ridge. Authorities could not confirm, however, that that animal was Speedy. In fact, they have no idea where she came from. The lamb’s excursion on the expressway did take place from about 63rd to 68th Street, though, said Gatto, who, once he got one hand on Speedy, put her in the back of his squad car and got her to the 72nd Precinct, where they picked up a carrier before passing Speedy off

job, this one ranks in the top five. The chase went down at around 9 a.m., according to authorities.

UPROSE fights back against Industry City rezoning plan BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

“W

e will not be moved.” That was the message of a protest outside of Industry City on Friday, March 15 as non-profit UPROSE led the charge against a rezoning proposal which would expand the waterfront’s usable space while also building up in terms of hotels and retail. Residents, local businesses, community groups and members of a coalition called POWWA (which stands for Protect Our Working Waterfront Alliance) gathered at the corner of 36th Street and Fourth Avenue before marching to Industry City to voice their concern for what an expansion of the entity would bring to the community. “We are rallying to let the people that are coming to Industry City to socialize know that supporting an industrial sector that should be building for our climate future is putting us and them in harm’s way and they need to know that,” Elizabeth Yeampierre, executive director of UPROSE, told this paper. “They may just think that it’s a destination location and they may not be thinking about how

the industrial sector is supposed to be helping to build our infrastructure, build for climate adaptation, mitigation and resiliency and how their social lives are giving support to an effort that is inconsistent with the local and regional needs.” Throughout the years, many locals have worried about the neighborhood becoming gentrified and pricing out longtime residents. Those concerns were in full force during the protest. “There were some local businesses that showed up because they were concerned that the rents are going to go up and that they were going to be displaced,” Yeampierre said. “There were residents who are concerned that they may not be able to live in this community anymore. Then there were those concerned with climate change and what that means when you destroy social cohesion in a community — you destroy a community’s ability to survive reoccurring extreme weather events. “We can’t talk about displacement without also talking about climate change because we are an industrial working waterfront community,” she added. Lisa Serbaniewicz, a spokesperson for Industry

City, responded to the rally with numbers. “Since 2013, Industry City has generated tremendous economic benefits for people who live and work in Sunset Park and throughout Brooklyn – including spending approximately $100 million at area businesses, quadrupling the number of on-site jobs f rom 1,900 to more than 7,500, and growing the number of businesses from 150 to more than 500,” she said. She also acknowledged that, “While we continue to be engaged in a productive dialogue with our neighbors, we also recognize that input comes in many forms, including the opinions being expressed this evening.” Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, along with Community Board 7 Chairperson Cesar Zuniga, wrote a letter to Industry City CEO Andrew Kimball earlier this month stating that they wouldn’t support a plan so soon and without more community engagement. Plans were then put on hold.

Community organizations and residents protest the proposed rezoning of Industry City.

“Industry City has had years to share information and to answer questions that are being raised by the community and instead, what they’ve done is they’ve hired public relations firms to engage in spin,” Yeampierre said. “So the councilmember asking that the community impacted has an opportunity to really think through what this means for them and

demanding Industry City provides the information necessary for people to make informed decisions, I think that’s what democracy looks like.” “We look forward to working with Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, Community Board 7, our community partners, and area residents – many of whom support the effort to reactivate Industry City – as the effort to generate opportunity continues,” added Serbaniewicz. Although the rezoning proposal includes the promise of thousands of new jobs, locals wonder if the income from employment at Industry City would even be enough to remain in the

area. “Businesses are coming with their employees to Industry City and the people that are getting hired in our community are people who are there to clean up after them, to serve them their coffee and I think the question isn’t about the jobs,” Yeampierre explained. “The question is if people will still be able to live here. So if you have minimum-wage jobs on our industrial waterfront and you can’t afford to live here anymore, are you then going to have to travel to another neighborhood to get here?” UPROSE claims that they will continue to have similar rallies and forums in the future to discuss the rezoning process. “We are going to continue to educate the community and continue to have ULURP [Uniform Land Use Review Procedure] workshops and raise our voices against what we think is an injustice against our community,” Yeampierre said. “The fact is that the industrial waterfront should be building for our climate future and not for parties for high end needs for the privileged. There’s already enough of that. “We saw what happened in Chelsea and Williamsburg,” she said.

Sunset Parkers protest Industry City rezoning plans BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

S

unset Park organizations and residents rallied outside of Community Board 7’s March 13 meeting about plans to rezone Industry City. Both the meeting and the protest came on the heels of the waterfront’s announcement that it would delay a plan to increase Industry City’s total usable space from 5.3 to 6.6 million square feet dedicated to the building of hotels, as well as additional retail space and academic centers. Several people stood outside the building — including members of such groups as Sunset Park Latino Democrats, Love Trumps Hate Sunset Park and Project 8th Avenue Coalition — and held up signs that said things like,

“Support local businesses, not big box store chains,” “Defend Sunset Park” and “We can’t afford IC rent increases.” “We are living in overcrowded apartments, sometimes two or three families to a tiny two bedroom. Even homeowners are struggling in the face of sharply rising property tax,” said Sunset Park resident and activist Jei Fong. “This development isn’t meant for us to enjoy. It will only pave the way for more large-scale luxury buildings and more displacement in Sunset Park. We must hold our elected officials accountable and insure we kill this rezoning.” “Ultimately only Councilmember Carlos Menchaca has the power to permanently halt this rezoning,” added Claudia Galicia, president of Sunset Park Latino Democrats. “The fate and

and has been doing so for a long time.” Mayor Bill de Blasio and President of New York City Economic Development Corporation James Patchett chimed in on the topic during a press conference on resiliency plans to protect lower Manhattan Thursday. “I’m going to turn to James because I will always be straightforward that I have not focused on the details of that project,” de Blasio told a Photo courtesy of Sunset Park Latino Democrats reporter when asked about IC. “But this is about, to me, Local organizations and residents outside Community Board 7 show their opposition to Industry City’s rezoning plans. ensuring that there are jobs for working people in future of our neighborhood forth of letters between was important to lift up a communities.” is in his hands.

ART AT NITEHAWK

Art VIRTUAL AND REAL ESTATE In conjunction with the BRIC Biennial: Volume III, South Brooklyn Edition, the Virtual and Real Estate group exhibition features work by artists Pastiche Lumumba, Daniel Bejar, and Betty Yu, that expresses the conundrums that arise from living in an age where the simulated is increasingly confused with the real. Although “estate” has previously been defined as fixed physical properties, the exhibition troubles our notions of property, ownership, circulation, space, and most fundamentally, what it means to be “real.” The Internet provides marginalized communities a virtual space for subversion and play, meanwhile distracting from the physical realities of gentrification and land rezoning. From Lumumba’s embalmed memes to Bejar’s subversion of the ubiquitous real estate billboard, to Yu’s archive of stories by communities affected by gentrification, these works challenges the absurdity of place and placelessness to bear on the chronological depth of lived experience. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through April 7th Where: Fort Greene/ BRIC House Gallery (647 Fulton 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.

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY

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. Santos Briones’ photographs are an intimate depiction of living in a state of uncertainty. 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 Street)

ON RESENTMENT

A wide-ranging series of daring works that explore cinema as a potent vehicle for expressing and exploring resentment. While recent discourse has frequently centered on feelings of marginalization among working class white men, On Resentment examines resentment as it intersects with issues of class, race, gender, sexuality, and land. A component of Triple Canopy’s current issue—which asks pressing questions about the role resentment plays in society and art, and who is afforded the right to resentment—the film series highlights the specific potency of cinema as a vehicle for oppressed voices to air grievances, bring attention to injustice, and effect change.

Eye on DITMAS PARK

Welcome to the Ditmas Park Historic District.

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

See five scenic spots in landmarked Ditmas Park By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Ditmas Park is a Victorian house-fancier’s fantasy come to life. All those magnificent stand-alone, century-old frame houses with beautiful yards. All those circular porches topped with pointy-roofed turrets. And for visual variety there are stately brick mansions with front-entrance columns like the ones on Classical Greek and Roman temples. Admirers of this stellar Victorian Flatbush neighborhood should thank their lucky stars for Lewis Pounds. The real estate broker from Topeka, Kansas purchased land in 1902 and built Ditmas Park with a man named Delbert Decker, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report about the Ditmas Park Historic District says. The property Pounds bought was part of the Van Ditmarsen family’s farm, in case you were wondering where the neighborhood’s name comes from. Pounds later went into politics. He served as the Brooklyn Borough President from 1913 to 1917. He later ran for mayor of New York City, but didn’t win. A walk around the neighborhood Pounds built is a rewarding experience if you crave Victorian architectural eye candy or simply want an hour of suburban-style serenity without having to leave Brooklyn.

I strolled through the Ditmas Park Historic District the other day and found five especially scenic spots for you to see. Some patches of March snow were still hanging around here and there. I hope by the time you make your visit, green lawns will be visible and a few brave daffodils will be showing their faces.

OCEAN AVENUE BETWEEN NEWKIRK AVENUE AND DORCHESTER ROAD

The corner of Ocean and Newkirk avenues is a fine place to start, at a red-brick, stone-trimmed mansion that Brooklyn builder Thomas Brush constructed as his home in 1899. The house at 1010 Ocean Ave. has a portico with tall Ionic columns. The mansion’s architectural style is a variation of Colonial Revival known as Georgian. Brush’s son-in-law, George Van Ness, bought the lot next door at 1000 Ocean Ave. The two men built houses that were meant “to complement each other in style,” Suzanne Spellen wrote in a 2014 Brownstoner.com story. An architect named George Palliser designed both homes. For many years 1010 Ocean Ave. was used as a synagogue and later a church. Medical offices currently occupy it. The west side of Ocean Avenue from Newkirk Avenue to the corner of Dorchester Road is included in the Ditmas Park Historic District. The houses are stunners.

Another great pair of Ocean Avenue houses stands on the corner of Ditmas Avenue. Both are Colonial Revival-style homes with unusual silhouettes and front doors with small porticoes. Manly Cutter designed the one at 950 Ocean Ave., which was constructed in 1907. John Petit was the architect of the other one, whose address is 940 Ocean Ave. It was built in 1901 for Emily Driggs, who did important charitable work such as serving as the secretary of the Flatbush Boys Club and the president of the Women’s Auxiliary, the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report about the historic district says. Petit’s name may sound familiar. He designed some of the most dazzling homes in Prospect Park South.

EAST 19TH STREET BETWEEN DORCHESTER ROAD AND DITMAS AVENUE

Next, swing around the corner and walk to the East 19th Street block that runs between Dorchester Road and Ditmas Avenue. So. Many. Pretty. Houses. One especially eye-catching home, 456 East 19th St., is made of stucco and brick and has an unusually shaped roof covered with Spanish tiles.

Eye on DITMAS PARK

The white house is lovely 940 Ocean Ave.

See five scenic spots in landmarked Ditmas Park — Continued from page 12INB — A Norwegian-born architect named Arne Dehli designed this Mission Revival house, which was constructed in 1910, the designation report says. That’s a very unusual architectural style in Victorian Flatbush. Another lovable house, 463 East 19th St., has a rounded porch and a turret topped with a witch’s hat. It was built in 1906. The designation report says this Slee & Bryson design is “one of the finest houses in the Historic District.”

Arlington Isham designed this house, which was built in 1903, the designation report says.

But my very favorite East 16th Street house is a corner property whose address is 1601 Ditmas Ave. Fred Staples designed this big, bold Colonial Revival home for George Hodges, the designation report says. It was built in 1906.

EAST 17TH STREET BETWEEN DITMAS AVENUE AND DORCHESTER ROAD

Now head over to the next street that intersects Ditmas Avenue, which is East 17th Street. One especially charming home on the block between Ditmas Avenue and Dorchester Road is Tudorstyle 501 East 17th St., which was constructed in 1908. George Showers designed it and a banker named Forest Wood was its first owner, the designation report says. Another handsome house, Colonial Revivalstyle 444 East 17th St., stands on the corner of Dorchester Road. It changed hands last year. The purchase price was $1.925 million, city Finance Department records show — and the seller had bought it for $800,000 in 2004.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan trict are charming. Isham, the architect I THE INTERSECTION OF DITMAS AVENUE mentioned a moment ago, designed numerous bungalows and Colonial Revival houses on this street. AND EAST 18TH STREET Every Ditmas Avenue intersection in the landmarked section of the neighborhood is populated with eye-catching houses. Two of my favorites stand at the intersection of East 18th Street. The partly brick house at 1806 Ditmas Ave. was designed by Chappell & Bosworth and constructed in 1909. Its low-pitched Special roofs that extend past the edge of the house suggest Craftsman deDiscount sign, but otherwise its architectural style is Colonial Revival, the for Teachers, 25 years experience designation report says. Firemen, Another great house at this intersection is Colonial RevivalAppointment Only and Police! style 1807 Ditmas Ave. It’s pale yellow with turquoise trim, and a pine tree out front is practically big enough to be Rockefeller Center’s holiday tree.

Josephine Augello, President 5015 New Utrecht Ave. Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 19, 1953

ON MARCH 19, 1953, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The Board of Transportation, backed against the wall by the Board of Estimate’s 24-hour ultimatum to slash $50,000,000 from its operating budget, was expected to bring forth a plan today calling for elimination of numerous surface lines and drastic reduction in services. Following the Board of Estimate’s rejection yesterday of Governor [Thomas] Dewey’s ‘onerous and intolerable’ city transit authority plan, Transit Commissioners Sidney H. Bingham, G. Joseph Minetti and James F. Dulligan were directed to draw up by 2 p.m. today a blueprint to wipe out the transit system’s staggering deficit. Bingham, angered by the implication that his department was not operating economically, warned that the severe economy drive would force the board to: 1. Abandon all bus lines running parallel to subway lines; 2. Shut down the 3rd Ave. El; 3. Eliminate free passes and transfers.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 21, 1942

ON MARCH 21, 1942, the Eagle reported, “Melbourne, March 21 (U.P.) – Gen. Douglas MacArthur, formally assuming command today of the United Nations forces in the Southwest Pacific, expressed his complete confidence in an Allied victory but warned that his success depended on the primary war resources which the Allies could put at his disposal. ‘I have great confidence in the ultimate success of our joint forces,’ he said. ‘But success in modern war requires more than courage – it requires careful preparation.’ … It was revealed that before MacArthur left the Philippines his men had promised him that they would defend their positions to the last … MacArthur’s pledge, as he arrived here after his daring break through the Japanese blockade, was his second since he came to Australia. In the first, yesterday, he pledged himself to organize an offensive against Japan and to return, at the head of his army, to the Philippines.”

Brooklyn’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day Parade marches on in Park Slope BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

I

t was a sea of emerald green as revelers from all across the borough came to Park Slope on Sunday, March 17 for the 44th annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade which, for the first time this year, featured an Irish LGBTQ+ group in its line of march. The festivities commenced at 9 a.m. with a pre-parade Mass at Holy Name of Jesus Church, 245 Prospect Park West. It was followed by a breakfast in the church hall at 10 a.m. At 12:35, before the parade step-off, a wreath rededication ceremony was held at Prospect Park West and 15th Street,  in honor of the heroes and victims of the World Trade Center September 11 attacks. Then, at  1 p.m., Brooklyn’s oldest St. Patrick’s Day Parade took off from 15th  Street and Prospect Park West, heading down 15th Street to Seventh Avenue, then along Seventh Avenue to Garfield Place and back to Prospect Park West, returning to 15th Street. Bernadette Buckley Kash, of the Buckley School of Irish Dance was the parade grand marshal. “Back in 1975, I marched in the very first Park Slope parade and I’m blessed to have marched in every one since,” she said. “My family celebrated being Irish 12 months of the year. It was our way of life.” The aides to the grand marshal this year were John Brennan, Christopher Coughlin, Ann Duffy Dolan, Rita Donlon, Martin Dunne, James Hart, Scott Richard Lloyd, Audrey Mullins and Mary Nolan. This year marked the first time an Irish LGBTQ+ group was allowed to march in the parade. Thanks to the co-founders of Brooklyn Irish LGBTQ+ Organization (BILO), Lisa Fane and Matthew McMorrow, and Assemblymember Robert Carroll, the parade committee voted to allow the group to march in the parade. “My grandfather founded this parade to commemorate

the American bicentennial and to celebrate the Irish and the contributions of Irish Americans to this country, and I know that he would be proud to know that it is now welcoming to all,” Carroll told this paper. “I am so glad that everyone was able to come together to honor Irish heritage and culture and make this the first fully inclusive St. Patrick’s Day parade in Brooklyn,” Carroll added. Carroll presented Kash with a proclamation from the New York State Assem-

Legendary Penthouse, Pastels nightclub building in Bay Ridge sold BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

T

he Bay Ridge site where the popular disco-era nightclub the Penthouse once spun endless hours of Bee Gees, Barry White, Gloria Gaynor and Donna Summer records for the dance crowd has been bought and is in the process of being renovated. The Penthouse, located at 88th Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues in Bay Ridge, had moved from 87th Street and Fourth Avenue to 88th and Fourth Avenue in 1960 and remained a fixture in the neighborhood until it closed in 1982 and reopened a year later as Pastels, which enjoyed its heyday during the ‘80s. In fact, it was in 1977 that the Penthouse was approached by the producers of “Saturday Night Fever” in hopes of filming the iconic John Travolta movie there. Dennis Saleeby, whose brother-in-law Al Hanna owned the club with his partner George Wardi, remembered the producers coming by when the club was busy wanting to talk to the owners. “They came the second or third week and it was almost becoming annoying,” said Saleeby. “Al looked at

me and said, ‘Dennis, get these people out of here, they’re driving me crazy.’ It turned out to be the people from ‘Saturday Night Fever,’ and we chased them out of the room.” Saleeby worked at the Penthouse as a young man, ultimately climbing his way up the ladder to becoming a partner with Hanna and Wardi in Pastels in 1983. So Travolta’s Tony Manero, who lived in Bay Ridge, ended up dancing the night away at 2001 the Odyssey Club at 802 64th St., though that never was the producers’ first choice. “They went to the other place, but we outlasted them by many years,” Saleeby said. “So it was okay.” The Penthouse/Pastels location was a nightclub for

53 years and has often been cited as being one of New York’s longest running clubs along with places like the Copacabana. Saleeby recalled the famous names who frequented Pastels. “Garry Pastore was one of the main bartenders and he went on to become an actor,” said Saleeby. “He is currently in ‘The Deuce.’ I spoke with him yesterday and he told me about a time when Sean Penn and ebrookyln media/Photo by John Alexander

One-way conversion plan for First and Second Avenues in Sunset Park meets resistance BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

proposal to turn First and Second Avenues in Sunset Park into one-way thoroughfares has already hit some roadblocks in terms of community reaction, but the city appears to be moving ahead with the plan, regardless. The New York Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) cites a recent study it conducted in contending that converting First and Second Avenues between 39th Street and 58th Street to one-way streets — with Second Avenue handling southbound traffic and First Avenue handling northbound traffic — would alleviate congestion. According to EDC, the study looked at emergency vehicles, truck routes, city and school bus routes, and the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, and took into account feedback from area residents, as well. However not everyone is on board, particularly with respect to ambulance access to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn, which is located at Second Avenue and 55th Street.

A look at the one-way conversion plan for First and Second Avenues. Representatives from EDC attended a Community Board 10 meeting on Tuesday to discuss the plan. Representatives of NYU Langone Health were also in attendance. The conversion from two-way to one-way streets is “not unusual… in industrial areas” where, said Senior Project Manager for EDC Adam Lomasney, it “cleans up a lot of congestion, makes it easier for vehicles for ingress and egress, particularly when there are a lot of uses happening in the area.” In conjunction with the conversion of First and Second Avenues to one-way streets, 58th

"How you could propose changes to a truck route if you do not know the volume of trucks?" - Community Board 7 District Manager Jeremy Laufer

Street between First and Second Avenues would remain a two-way street, but 39th Street between First and Second Avenues would become a one-way street, heading eastbound, according to Lomasney. According to the city’s

Department of Transportation, he said, having two lanes traveling in the same direction would ease lane blockages by making it easier for turning vehicles. In particular, it would make it easier for trucks to turn, as well as reduce congestion. Safety was a major factor in determining direction for each of the two avenues, said Lomasney, who stressed that the directions had been decided upon based on consultation with DOT, and took into account the exit from the Gowanus Expressway at 39th Street and Second Avenue. With the proposed realignment of the avenues, he said, “When you come off the 39th Street exit, you can peel off either right or left depending where you’re going.” But, CB 10 District Manager Josephine Beckmann stressed that the change could impact travel to NYU-Langone from Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. “The route to our level 1 trauma center is of paramount importance to us,” she told this paper. “Without a local hospital in District 10, we want to make sure travel to the hospital is not impeded in any way, especially for people in the

northern area of Bay Ridge.” But, there are issues that go beyond hospital access. Community Board 7 District Manager Jeremy Laufer brought up the variety of traffic issues that Sunset Park is already grappling with, from double parking to trucks, which will only intensify, he said, as changes in the offing — such as a new, 5 million-square-foot distribution center planned for 20th Street, and the Freight NYC program planned for the Brooklyn Army Terminal — come to fruition. “What you don’t see is traffic volume,” he said. “The mayor announced in June that Freight NYC would be coming to the Brooklyn Army Terminal. Since then, we’ve been asking for traffic volume for that and we’ve received nothing. How you could propose changes to a truck route if you do not know the volume of trucks? It makes absolutely no sense to me.” Planning and design for the change are still underway. The allocation of funding is planned to take place this summer, with the final design and implementation slated for 2020 pending funding and stakeholder buy-in.

OPINION Dems betting on Beto

T

here is all sort of speculation that the announcement of former Texas U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke will have a meaningful effect on the Democratic presidential field. This really cannot be said about any other candidacy up until this point. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ lead is mostly about name ID and an interest in his socialist positions, but not a true measure of a party’s willingness to put up a candidate who is so far out of the mainstream and will be 79 on Election Day 2020. Nor is Sen. Kamala Harris — who in most polls trails Sanders in second place — looked at as much more than a leftwing Democrat who offers no hope of expanding the Democratic presidential base. Additionally, O’Rourke might give Joe Biden second

thoughts if he is looking at entering the race as many believe he has designs. Biden will likely find that O’Rourke is cutting into a key base of younger Democrats who do not identify themselves as socialist Democrats in the vain of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Where does this leave Governor Andrew Cuomo whose father famously became known as “Hamlet on the Hudson’ for his regular manifestations that he would run for President? Most likely as his father’s understudy. It is said he will run if Biden does not enter the race. So the question becomes, will he run if Biden chooses not to run as the result of a Beto candidacy? After all, it would be eating up so many potential Democratic delegates as well as financial and political supporters.

If the Democratic selection process, at this stage, seems so confused and likely to cause divisive splits that would aide President Trump and the GOP, it is worth remembering that there are — in addition to the above — something like 15 or so other individuals who have announced or have indicated plans to announce. This is all happening with the Iowa caucuses under a year away. *** Having worked on the local end of government for so many years, it comes as no surprise to me that residents have expressed strong concerns about the construction of a school at the former Nathan’s site on 86th Street and Seventh Avenue. Parents and residents are questioning the wisdom of a location that is so heavily trafficked. The safety of the children should be the first

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Bay Ridge Center’s Annual Meals on Wheels Parade To Take Place on March 30 Volunteers to Step Off from Ovington Ave. To Sustain Ridge’s ‘Greatest Generation’

As Bay Ridge’s treasured “March for Meals on Wheels” looms straight ahead on March 30, it’s important that more people learn about the critical role the Bay Ridge Center — originally known as the Bay Ridge Senior Center — has fulfilled year after positive year. Without getting too deep into the weeds of detail, we can point out that up to 9,000 people here are directly and regularly benefiting from this singular initiative. Nine thousand! But since Bay Ridge remains the city’s preeminent volunteer community, the Center’s story is one that cannot be told too often because the need for new volunteers is neverending. Ever since the late and dedicated Rev. Darrell Helmers linked his Bethlehem Lutheran Church with the movement to establish proactive senior centers — especially among older populations such as we have in Bay Ridge — the senior center now known as the Bay Ridge Center has been a vital player in the well-being of the Greater Bay Ridge community. Rev. Helmers worked with outstanding Center executives like Cheryl Heiberg and Rosemarie Carney to steadily provide and improve necessary services to our neighborhood, which became a NORC (Naturally Occurring Retirement Community). Fortunately, his work was continued by Rev. Paul Knudsen, who inspired a widening cadre of leading Bay Ridge volunteers — most notably the late and, let’s face it, irreplaceable Larry Morrish — to join the Center and help with its vital fundraising program.

Center’s Fundraising Parade A Welcome Community Tradition

Each year, Morrish, initially along with Peter and Patricia Killen and then joined by Alex Conti, Louis Peters, Brian Chin, Mary and Peter Clavin, Jim McHugh, Michael and Beth Connors, Walter Ochoa, Bob Howe and this writer, locked arms in a fundraising parade stepping off at the church near Ovington Avenue and ultimately traversing all of Fifth and Third avenues. Collection bucket in hand, Morrish would stop motorists and pedestrians, invade retail shops of all kinds and raise thousands of dollars while getting across the message that the Bay Ridge Center is essential to life as we know it in Bay Ridge. He reinforced the idea that everybody was under an obligation to support it in any way possible. Main beneficiary of this annual event was the Center’s Meals on Wheels program; it’s safe to say that Morrish’s efforts paid for the purchase of one or more delivery vehicles that enable this life-sustaining agenda for thousands here. With leadership roles now filled admirably by Executive Director Marianne Nicolosi, Donna McClellan and Todd Fliedner, this year Bay Ridge will welcome the next “March for Meals on Wheels” on March 30.

Friend of Morrish Praises Center Leaders

A well-informed source — a longtime volunteer who worked long hours on good causes with Morrish — noted, “Larry would be so pleased to see the enthusiasm that will be on display the morning of March 30. Larry initially led this

Sen. Marty Golden and Councilmember Vincent Gentile were always at the forefront of this promotion and Pastor Knudsen thoughtfully brought delicious hotdogs for all who marched during the fundraiser. It’s good to know that Councilmember Justin Brannan lends his backing to this and other items of importance here, and we should always keep in mind that Bay Ridge is a NORC.” “The Center also does the ‘Night at the Races’ and countless other acts of God’s work,” the volunteer continued, adding that “a column about the golden days of volunteering in Bay Ridge for the betterment of primarily the seniors would be welcome by their children and families and should be worthy of space in our local press.” I agree. Fliedner advises that the march, which this year honors the redoubtable Jane Kelly, will get underway following a 10:30 a.m. kickoff ceremony in front of 411 Ovington Ave. For further information, email tfliedner@bayridgecenter.org.

Northfield Bank hosts grand opening for new Court Street branch BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

N

orthfield Bank’s new Court Street branch followed its recent ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday, March 2, with a grand opening cocktail reception on Wednesday, March 13. The event brought together community leaders, judges and attorneys from the neighboring courts, along with Northfield Bank’s executive officers, bank presidents, vice-presidents and branch managers. The reception took place at the Northfield’s new location at 112 Court Street, and was organized by Brian Chin, vice president and branch manager of both the Court Street and Bay Ridge branches of Northfield Bank. Northfield Bank President and CEO Steven Klein welcomed guests and thanked everyone for attending. “We are very proud to be a part of the Brooklyn Heights community,” said Klein. “This is our 40th branch, it’s our 10th location in Brooklyn, and what a great way to turn 10!” Klein expressed his pleasure with the new branch and explained

Yoherry Avcona, Brian Chin, Michael Widmer, Josephine Brown and Steven Klein. how Northfield already considers itself a part of the neighborhood. “I like to say that we are locally grown. Everything you see is about being part of the neighborhoods, about being part of the communities and being laser focused on our customers whether it’s personal or business. I think our way of banking is going to fit very well in Brooklyn Heights,” he said. Robin Lefkowitz, executive vice president, director of branch administration and business development agreed that Northfield is very indoctrinated in the community and is involved

with many non-profit organizations. “What makes us different from our competitors is that we get to know our customers,” said Lefkowitz. “We get to know their businesses, their lives and we want them to come to us and to trust us.” Chin thanked Klein for opening the branch on Court Street and introduced all of the new bank’s personnel. Northfield Bank was founded in 1887 with a mission of serving the financial needs of a community. “We are proudly continuing that tradition today by staying true to our reputation of trust, respect and stability,”

said Chin. “We love to say that Northfield Bank was born in 1887 but was built for today.” Attending the grand opening reception were Civil Court Justice Lizette Colon, Supreme Court Justices David Vaughan and Mark Partnow, renowned personal injury attorney Sanford Rubenstein, Bay Ridge lawyers Joseph Vasile, Robert Howe, Gary Hanna, and Joanne Seminara of Grimaldi &Yeung LLP Partners; Ilan Stern, vice president of the New York Building Congress, Hector Batista, president of the Brooklyn Chamber of
