Columbus Parade Helps Italians Celebrate Heritage Amid Changes BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
he proud traditions of Bensonhurst’s Ita lia n-A meric a n community will be on full display when the 37th Annual Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade takes place on 18th Avenue (AKA Cristoforo Columbo Boulevard after the Italian name for the explorer) on Saturday, Oct. 6. New York City will hold a parade on Columbus Day Day, Monday, Oct. 8, on Fifth Avenue. But Brooklyn likes to host its own parade. Sponsored by the Federation of Italian-American Organizations (FIAO) of Brooklyn, the parade is a longstanding Bensonhurst tradition that still draws large crowds every October, despite the fact that the neighborhood has undergone a sea of change in recent years, transitioning from a predominantly Italian-American community to one that is largely Asian-American. The FIAO’s success in keeping the Italian-flavored parade alive and thriving amid changing demographics is due to the organization’s willingness to embrace those changes, while at the same time promoting cultural pride, according to FIAO President and CEO Carlo Scissura. “To me, the parade is a celebration of Italian culture and culture in general,” Scissura told this

The FIAO has reached out to its Asian neighbors and invited them to take part in the festivities. Last year’s parade, for example, featured Chinese dragon dancers along with marchers waving Italian flags and dancing the Tarantella. “The parade has been
going on for decades. It always draws a large turnout of spectators and marchers,” Scissura said. The parade gets under way on Oct. 6 at noon on 18th Avenue and 60th Street.
Participants, including members of Italian organizations, church groups, dancers, students from local schools, marching bands and colorful ﬂoats, will make their way up the
avenue to Benson Avenue, where the FIAO’s headquarters, Il Centro (Italian for “The Center), is located and where the reviewing stand will be. The 2018 Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade Grand Marshals are: Joseph Bruno, former commissioner of the New York City Oﬃce of Emergency Management; Frank Naccarato, past president of the FIAO; Det. Stephen Agosta of the 62nd Precinct; and Ursula Annio, principal at P.S. 748. “We have a great group of grand marshals this year,” Scissura said, adding that they were chosen because of their records of service to the city, the borough and the Bensonhurst community. The grand marshals will be the guests of honor at a special brunch six days before the parade. The event will take place on Sunday, Sept. 30, at Sirico’s Caterers, at 8023 13th Ave. Like the parade, the brunch is sponsored by the FIAO. Founded in 1977, the FIAO is a multi-faceted organization that oﬀers educational programs, immigration assistance and social service referrals to more than 15,000 people a year. The organization also operates several after-school centers where more than 10,000 children play sports and get
help with homework. The FIAO’s balance of tradition and inclusiveness can also be found at Il Centro, the organization’s new headquarters which opened to great fanfare in June in a ceremony that included a ribbon cutting attended by Matilda Cuomo, mother of Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Il Centro is the ﬁrst Italian cultural center in New York City, according to Scissura, who is the president of the New York Building Congress. The s i x- s t o r y, 44,000-square-foot Il Centro houses classrooms, an interactive learning library, a ﬁtness center, a gymnasium, an auditorium and an indoor pool on the ﬁfth ﬂoor that boasts ﬂoor-to-ceiling windows on three sides oﬀering views of Bensonhurst, Coney Island and the Manhattan skyline. People of all nationalities have been ﬂocking to Il Centro since it opened to take English language lessons, practice yoga, learn to swim, enjoy dance lessons and take history classes, among other self-improvement activities. In addition to Asian-Americans, Bensonhurst has become home to large numbers of immigrants from Russia, Poland, the Middle East and Central America in recent years.

ally’s sunshine is spreading, even at night. Sally Kabel, the six-yearold Bay Ridge girl who died on Sept. 19 after bravely battling leukemia for most of her young life with a sunny, optimistic attitude that inspired everyone around her, was remembered at a candlelight vigil in Coney Island on Sept. 27. The vigil, which took place on the Riegelmann Boardwalk at West 19th Street at sundown, drew a large crowd of residents from several Brooklyn neighborhoods who came to show love and support for Sally’s grieving parents, Matthew and Nicole.

Participants also vowed to continue to ﬁght for a cure for childhood cancer. The vigil took place on the same night as the Fifth Annual Lighting of the Parachute Jump, in which the landmark is lit in gold in recognition of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September.
The lighting ceremony was organized by the owners of Luna Park and by Councilmember Mark Treyger, a D emo c rat who represents Coney Island. Democratic Councilmember Justin Brannan, who represents
Bay Ridge, where the Kabels are from, also helped
put the vigil together. “A truly moving community tribute and vigil for #SweetSallySunshine before lighting the famous Coney Island parachute jump gold for Sally and all those impacted by childhood cancer. We won’t give up until there’s a cure!” Brannan wrote on Twitter. Sally Kabel, whose nickname was “Sweet Sally Sunshine,” was an inspirational figure to many of her Bay Ridge neighbors, who marveled at her courage and positive attitude as she underwent chemotherapy and other types of treatments.

Golden Says He is Not Fazed by Democratic Blue Wave BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
he Blue Wave that political observers are expecting to sweep across the country on Election Day isn’t going to reach the shores of Southwest Brooklyn, Republican state Sen. Martin Golden is conﬁdently predicting. Golden, who is running for re-election in the 22nd Senate District on Nov. 6, said residents in his district tend to vote on a candidate’s record, as opposed to party aﬃliation. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans in the district, but that hasn’t added up to defeat for Golden, who ﬁrst won the seat in 2002, and is now running for a ninth term. He considers himself a hands-on lawmaker who regularly gets out and engages the public at events like the Summer Stroll on 3rd and his Summer Concert series in parks. “I am out there on a regular basis. People know me,” he told this newspaper
during an interview in his Bay Ridge oﬃce on Monday, October 1. Visibility and name recognition are two of his strengths, he said. Golden is the only Republican state senator representing Brooklyn. His re-election bid is getting a great deal of attention in part because of the talk of a Blue Wave and because his Democratic opponent, lawyer Andrew Gounardes, ran against him in 2012 and impressed many political leaders with a strong showing in Bay Ridge. Gounardes garnered more votes than Golden in Bay Ridge six years ago. Golden won the election due to his vote-getting strength in other neighborhoods like Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach. Gounardes, who is chief counsel to Borough President Eric Adams, has the entire Democratic Party establishment behind him as he seeks to unseat Golden. Golden said he is taking the challenge from Gounardes seriously. “I take nothing for granted,’ he said. Golden has recently

State Sen. Martin Golden says he is confident that residents vote on a candidate’s record, not party affiliation. found himself at the center of controversies, including dust-ups over speed cameras in school zones. After a state-approved pilot program authorizing speed cameras in 140 school zones around the city expired on July 25, the state Senate did not vote on a bill to renew it, as the state Assembly had. Transportation safety advocates accused Golden of ﬂip-ﬂopping on the issue, supporting the cameras and then opposing
them, a charge he denies. “There is no time when I voted against speed cameras. I think speed cameras do work. They do save lives. I take public safety very seriously,” said Golden, a retired police oﬃcer. In August, Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order to re-activate the cameras on an emergency basis. “For now, our kids are safe,” Golden said. Transportation safety advocates have also charged
that Golden is a less-thanideal spokesperson on the speed camera issue, since his car has been ticketed for speeding on numerous occasions. Golden acknowledges the tickets, but said he is not the only person who drives his car. Golden pointed to his record in the Senate and said he has sponsored many pieces of legislation and has oﬀered strong support for bills introduced by GOP colleagues. One of the bills he fought for would allow emergency medical technicians who were part of the recovery effort at the World Trade Center in the immediate aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks to take sick leave and have it covered under the Det. James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act. After Mayor Bill de Blasio requested state legislation to speed up major roadway repair projects, like the rebuilding of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE), Golden said the Senate got it done. “We will save hundreds of millions
of dollars by speeding these projects up,” he said. Golden said he supported congestion pricing for Uber, Lyft and other for-hire services entering Manhattan, which begins in January. He is currently ﬁghting for a so-called Lock Box to prevent New York State from siphoning money away the MTA and putting it toward other uses. In addition to working to fund subway repairs, Golden said he also advocated for alternative forms of transportation to give commuters choices. “I have fought for ferries. I have been at the forefront on that,” he said. He has also sponsored legislation to combat illegal home conversions. One bill would increase penalties against landlords who illegally convert one and two-family homes into multi-unit buildings. He is working on other legislation. “I’m looking for a crackdown through the entire process. We want to catch them when they are applying for permits,” he said.
Grassroots Group Targets Pols in Subway Campaign BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
iders entering subway stations in Bay Ridge and Bensonhurst one recent morning might have been surprised to see volunteers handing out fans on the platform. The volunteers were members of the grassroots group Fight Back Bay Ridge and they were distributing the fans not just to help riders cool oﬀ in the hot weather but to send a message about how elected oﬃcials are letting the public down when it comes to subway service. Ten members of Fight Back Bay Ridge spent the morning rush hour distributing fans and leaﬂets to riders at the 95th Street, 77th Street, Bay Ridge Avenue, Kings Highway, 20th Avenue and 71st Street stations on the D, N, Q and R lines. All of the targeted subway stations are located within state Sen. Martin Golden’s district and they were chosen on purpose, according to Fight Back Bay Ridge Co-Founder Mallory

The group, which formed in late 2016 in response to the election of President Donald Trump, is not endorsing a candidate in the state Senate race. Golden disputed the charges made by McMahon and Fight Back Bay Ridge. “It’s not true,” he told this newspaper. Golden said he worked hard to convince Mayor Bill de Blasio to chip in half of the funding, some $416 million, to help pay for the MTA’s ambitious Subway Action Plan to repair antiquated systems. Cuomo has pledged more than $400 million in state funding toward the plan. Golden said he supported congestion pricing for Uber, Lyft and other for-hire services in Manhattan. The program, in which drivers pay a fee to enter Manhattan, will generate funds for the transit system. In response to the charge that he has voted for budgets that redirect MTA funds, Golden said has introduced legislation to create a “Lock Box” to prevent New York State from siphoning money away the MTA.

MALLIOTAKIS IS TECH CONFERENCE KEYNOTE SPEAKER Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (R-Bay Ridge-Staten Island) was invited to be the keynote speaker at the Ascent Tech Conference on Oct. 4 at Pier 36 in Manhattan. The conference is expected to include a wide range of speakers discussing technology from various perspectives. “Social media has changed the way we communicate with our constituents and it has also become a 24/7 platform for constituents to notify us about quality of life issues, ask questions or express concerns. From using platforms like Facebook on the night of Hurricane Sandy to direct emergency resources to promoting events like my property tax protest to informing constituents of community news, social media has proven its value,” Malliotakis said in a statement. Malliotakis will discuss steps New York State is doing to attract tech startups to set up shop in the state. “New York has been working to create tech incubators throughout the state such as the one located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard focusing on artiﬁcial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology. We want to attract entrepreneurs and provide an environment that fosters innovation so these businesses to succeed, expand and create jobs here in our state,” she stated. PK
DONOVAN BLASTS GOP LEADERSHIP ON TAX BILL U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan (R-Bay Ridge-Southwest Brooklyn-Staten Island) joined with two Republican colleagues, U.S. Reps. Peter King and Lee Zeldin, in criticizing the House GOP leadership for scheduling a vote on a controversial tax bill that would make restrictions on State and Local Tax (SALT) Deductions permanent. “This legislation unfairly targets our hardworking constituents while subsidizing most of the rest of the country. We have made it clear to the entire House leadership, including the speaker and Majority Leader, that we strongly oppose HR 6760 and will not only vote against it but will denounce it publicly,” Donovan, King and Zeldin said in a joint statement. “We have had enough of other states being enriched at the expense of New York taxpayers who are once again being victimized on the altar of political gamesmanship and expediency. If we don’t ﬁght for New Yorkers no one will,” the three New York lawmakers stated. PK
NADLER SPEAKS OUT IN SPORTS BETTING U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-Manhattan-parts of Bay Ridge-Bensonhurst), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, spoke out during a committee hearing on sports betting in America, urging the panel to tread carefully. “In June, the Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, otherwise known as PASPA, which prohibited states from authorizing sports betting, violated the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. In response, several states have enacted laws to allow intrastate sports betting, joining Nevada, which had been grandfathered because it allowed heavily regulated sports betting prior to PASPA. Certainly, we should all acknowledge that there is already a huge volume of sports betting taking place in this country, whether or not it is allowed by law or regulated in any way,” Nadler said in his remarks. “Whether it takes place through a local bookmaker, online through an oﬀshore sports book, or in a state where it is legal and regulated, sports gambling has long been a part of our culture. In fact, betting actually serves to generate a substantial amount of interest in the sports themselves. We cannot simply prevent sports betting by enacting laws to prohibit it and pretend that it will go away,” Nadler added. PK
CARROLL CALLS ON THE CITY AND STATE TO SCREEN ALL KINDERGARTNERS AND FIRST GRADERS FOR DYSLEXIA October is Dyslexia Awareness Month and to kick it oﬀ, Assemblymember Robert Carroll (D-Park Slope-Borough Park-Victorian Flatbush) is calling on the governor, mayor, chancellor and legislature to fund universal screening for dyslexia for all kindergartners and ﬁrst graders. Carroll’s plan would institute curriculum changes in elementary schools to utilize multi-sensory phonics based approaches as part of a universal literacy program. According to statement from Carroll, one in ﬁve students is dyslexic, 50 percent of fourth graders are not reading at grade level, 75 percent of students drop out in part because
they are poor readers and one in seven adults is functionally illiterate. “Our country is in the midst of a literacy crisis and we aren’t doing anything about it,” Carroll said. “A disproportionate amount of the over 50 percent of students who aren’t reading at grade-level are dyslexic or have another language based learning diﬀerence. But our literacy problem touches all types of students – and stems from improper curriculum and a lack of screening of students for phonological awareness issues.” Universal screening at the kindergarten-ﬁrst grade level is currently being done in seven states across the country. According to Carroll’s

BAY RIDGE COUNCILMEMBER INTRODUCES LEGISLATION FOR ILLEGAL CONVERSION TASK FORCE City Councilmember Justin Brannan (D-Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights-Bensonhurst) joined Queens Councilmember Robert Holden to introduce legislation creating a task force that would report on illegal conversions and occupancies across the ﬁve boroughs, and devise strategies for the city to address them. The interagency task force would encompass and coordinate action between the FDNY, Oﬃce of Special Enforcement, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the Department of Buildings (DOB), the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and the Department of City Planning. The task force would include one member appointed by the public advocate and three by the City Council speaker.

Councilmember Justin Brannan. “Illegal conversions are a dangerous, exploitative practice of greedy, lawbreaking landlords,” Brannan said. “I support existing city law that ﬁnes landlords for creating these illegal apartments, which cause unsafe, poor living conditions that no tenant
wants. I am co-introducing this legislation because I believe we should do everything we can to further deter bad actors for ignoring the needs of their tenants and neighbors in favor of an extra buck.” Brannan also acknowledged the local impact of the legislation. “I got into this job because I want to ﬁght for all of my constituents, new and old,” Brannan said. “But landlords who break the law to be unfair to their tenants have no place doing business in my district or in our city. This task force will make us better, smarter, and faster at dealing with these violations of law.” Having been introduced to the Council, the bill will now go to committee hearings before it can go to a vote on the Council ﬂoor.

The event, held at Sirico’s, 8023 13th Ave., on Sunday, Sept. 30 honored this year’s grand marshals: New York State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Bruno, 62nd Precinct Community Aﬀairs Detective Stephen Agosta, Principal of P.S. 748 for Global Scholars Ursula Annio and past president of Ben-Bay Kiwanis and FIAO and Maimonides Medical Center Trustee Frank Naccarato. President of FIAO Carlo Scissura discussed the signiﬁcance of the day. “It’s an opportunity to do two things,” he explained. “One is of course to highlight the grand marshals of the parade. There are four great grand marshals this year so we were very excited to honor them, highlight them and give them the awards. It also helps raise money for the parade which is an expensive proposition. We had one of our most successful brunches ever, so we’re really happy about it.” The honorees were selected based on exceptional community service, Scissura said.

STEM Lab Offers Hands-On Learning to Catholic School Kids By Paula Katinas Brooklyn Daily Eagle
When Kelly Wolf arrived at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy to take the helm as principal last year, one of the first things she did was put together a STEM Night during the celebration of Catholic Schools Week in which she challenged her students to come up with projects that showed their creative sides. “It was incredible,” Wolf told the Brooklyn Eagle. “They were building homes out of marshmallows. They were building a car out of boxes. The kids had such an enthusiastic response. The excitement in the gym was amazing.” The various projects demonstrated the students’ talents in science, technology, engineering and math. And the excitement the principal saw in her students’ eyes that night gave her a bold idea. Wolf’s plan came to fruition a few weeks ago when Our Lady of Grace, a Catholic elementary-middle school located at 385 Ave. W in Gravesend, officially opened its new STEM lab. The lab, which contains Chromebooks, iPads and SMART Boards, as well as a 3D printer, is fast becoming a popular destination for students in the academy. The lab was organized by Stephanie Campanella, who teaches science to the school’s sixth, seventh and eighth graders. To go along with the new STEM lab, the school has also introduced a new interactive science curriculum. Our Lady of Grace educates students from kindergarten through eighth grade, and all grades are getting the opportunity to work in the lab. Fourth graders, for example, are learning about the systems in the human body and have been spending time in the new lab to conduct research. Students in the second grade are learning about weights and measures and are getting their share of lab time. Sixth graders are learning about properties of matter, according to Campanella, who said they are using the lab to explore the difference between an element and a compound by finding the mass, volume, and density. In grade seven, the talk is all about atomic structure and exploring the Periodic Table of Elements. “Eight elements were given to each group and they had to create a Venn diagram to separate the elements into two different groups based on their physical properties. Once separated, they needed to look up the element and find out whether the element is a metal, metalloid, or nonmetal,” Campanella told the Eagle. The eighth graders are busy learning about

Their lab works includes calibrating a thermometer, having water reach boiling point and then having water reach the freezing point, Campanella said. “I was able to bring all three classes into the STEM lab and they absolutely love it,” she added. Wolf said one of the best things about the lab is the way the facility reinforces what students

are talking about in the classroom. “The students prep in the classroom and then go to the lab and get the chance for hands-on learning,” said Wolf, who added that the lab also helps teachers as they prepare their lesson plans. The Diocese of Brooklyn, which oversees Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens, assisted Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy in getting the plans for a lab off the ground, according to Wolf.
Faced with competition from public schools, which are free, religious education institutions in New York City that charge tuition are coming up with all sorts of ways to attract students and increase enrollments. Keeping pace with public schools in STEM appears to be one way to do it.

“We want people to know that they don’t have to go across the river get good health care,” said Dr. Janet Yeh, assistant professor in the Department of Surgery, who treats breast cancer patients. One of the reasons NYU Langone officials wanted to set up shop in Brooklyn is because research revealed that many patients seeking treatment at NYU Langone in Manhattan were from Brooklyn, according to Dr. Joseph Weisstuch, the chief medical officer. “Thirty percent of the patients who left the hospital in Manhattan came home to Brooklyn,” he said. The goal now is to convince Brooklyn residents that they can get top-notch care closer to home, Rudy said. NYU Langone Hospital – Brooklyn is a certified Level One Trauma center, meaning
that it is equipped to handle all types of emergencies. It is also an academic institution where doctors are trained in their specialties. In addition to the hospital, NYU Langone runs dozens of small, family oriented health centers around Brooklyn as well as an ambulatory care center at 6740 Fourth Ave. in Bay Ridge. Coming in 2019 is the Perlmutter Cancer Center, a 22,000-square facility at 5718 Second Ave. that will offer radiation and infusion treatments for patients with cancer or blood disorders. Meanwhile, there is innovation going on in many areas of the hospital, according to doctors. Robotic surgery, which doesn’t involve robots but allows doctors to use technology to perform minimally invasive surgery,
is becoming increasingly common. The hospital has done over 400 robotics surgeries to date. The hospital also uses an electronic medical records-keeping system that follows a patient to any part of the NYU Langone system, Brooklyn or Manhattan. It is designed to prevent duplication and delays in getting vital medical records to doctors within the system. A new system that is currently being developed would allow emergency room patients to receive upto-the-minute bulletins on their smartphones that will enable them to learn which doctor will be seeing them, what medical tests they can expect to undergo and whether they will have to be admitted into the hospital as an inpatient or be released. Dr. Nicholas Gavin, chief of the Emergency Medicine,
said the emergency room saw 80,000 patients last year. The department has made enormous strides in reducing the time it takes for an emergency patient to be seen by a doctor, from an average of 35 minutes to an average of 12 minutes, he said. “This is not happening anywhere else in Brooklyn,” he said. The Emergency Department has undergone a renovation. “Bringing the facilities up to speed is something we are focusing on,” Rudy said. Dr. Erich Anderer, chief of neurosurgery, said that innovation in his department has meant that patients with complex neurological issues who would have ordinarily been transferred to an NYU facility in Manhattan can now stay in Brooklyn. “We used to treat 150 cases a year. We are up to 500 cases a year,” he said.

culture and diversity and recognizing the beautiful Latino Diaspora, a mixed race,” she said. “Personally, I’ve been asked if I’m Indian or if I speak Spanish because most don’t think that I am Latina. Here lies my journey, one that is deeply rooted in this great borough of Brooklyn. Thanks to the love and sacrifice of my Dominican parents, opportunities blossomed.” During her speech, she discussed the hardship her parents faced with minimal education. Her mother was a seamstress, her father a factory worker and pizzeria owner. “I know where I come from,” she said. “I am one generation away from a family of farmers. As a Latina, I celebrate with you our accomplishments in arts and culture, film and media, politics and business.” The majority of the ceremony was heavily focused on the one year anniversary of Hurricane Maria hitting Puerto Rico, which is reported to have claimed the lives over 3,000 people. Executive Director of
UPROSE Elizabeth Yeampierre spoke about the devastation and climate change. “I am so grateful that this is happening today in a hospital because we are living in the age of climate change and health care providers are not prepared for the impacts of climate change,” she said. “People think when a hurricane hits and people die, that number is finite. They don’t understand the implications of climate change.” The hospital awarded Yeampierre and Reyna plaques and flowers. Luz Fonseca of Maimonides was also recognized for relief efforts following the hurricane. “When Hurricane Maria occurred, we got together to talk about what Maimonides’ response was and what we could do to support folks, and the devastation of that impacted island,” she said. “We all just chipped in. Maimonides has the solidarity to come through and help out in time of need. This is a family hospital where anything that affects any of us, whether it’s students or nurses, it’s a time for helping.”
Special Q&A with Renowned Psychologist Connie Jasmine Castro BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
r. Connie Jasmine Castro is a nationally certified school psychologist. She is also a licensed psychologist. She has spent over 10 years working with children, adolescents and their families. She recently took a few minutes to explain her methods of working with a variety of populations. Q: Please give us some background about yourself. What made you decide to become a psychologist? I initially decided to become a psychologist because I enjoy helping others. I enjoy being part of a process that brings self-awareness, individual growth and inner happiness to others. I began my career working with children, adolescents and young adults. I have extended my capacity also to work directly with
their families, resulting in the ability to work with all age groups. Psychology is a field that permits me the opportunity to assist others with any concerns they would like to discuss or work through in therapy sessions. Q: Tell us about your process of working with people with special needs. Depending on the type of special need required by an individual, several types of support are typically needed. Therapy is one aspect which can help positively modify certain thoughts or behaviors to improve an individual’s ability to react to or function in daily situations. For example, social skills training is one type of therapy that can be used to teach the individual how to relate to or engage with others on a daily basis. Furthermore, therapy for their caregiver, parent or family member can also serve as a support system.
Q: You enjoy working therapeutically with individuals of all ages. Is there one particular age group you find most rewarding to work with? There is no one particular age group I find most rewarding to work with. I prefer to work with all ages as each age group brings forth different types of thoughts, behaviors and situations relating to their stage in life. This makes the therapeutic process more interesting and rewarding as I am able to witness different types of positive changes and individual growth in each client. Q: Please describe your collaborative approach to working with your patients. My collaborative approach varies with the age group. In summary, I attempt to guide the client and/or caregiver to identify the thoughts, behaviors and/or situations they would like to work through. If the client needs further
assistance with this, I facilitate the dialogue to help create greater individual self-awareness. Q: What are some of the various therapy methods you provide? The therapy methods used are individualized to each client. I am a believer that there is not one method of therapy that is the right fit for all. I also believe that it may be necessary to use a variety of therapeutic
methods overtime. In essence, the end result is to have the individual increase their cognitive awareness which in turn can improve the client’s ability to understand and positively modify their behavior or reaction in different situations. Furthermore, the therapy methods used are even more successful if the client feels understood by the therapist.
Q: Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about you? I am credentialed as a provider for various health insurance panels. I also have private rates if you don’t have health insurance, or if I am not on your health insurance panel. Please call the Psychology Office of Dr. Connie Jasmine Castro PLLC at 917-991-1615 to make an appointment, or if you have any further questions.

When: Wednesdays-Sundays through October 27th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Minus Space (16A Main Street) QUIETER PLACES Marshall LaCount’s Quieter Places paintings are a collective approach to places quieter than the city; quieter than a mind treading in traumas; quieter than political despondency. These Quieter Places are beyond certain borders. They are elsewhere, for they are not places, they are images. In this case, they are images constructed by aching hands and sore arms which have managed to pull away
from other work, made in less quiet places. Plaster is shaped alongside acrylic paint, wallboard, spray paint. Graffiti and the constant buffing of graffiti get a nod. The works are playful: primary colors occupy measured spaces in largely white fields of textured plaster. This play is a renegotiating of borders. When: Daily Through October, 12 – 9 p.m. Where: Greenpoint/Exhibit Salon (182 Driggs Avenue) THE BRIDGE THE BRIDGE The Bridge! The Bridge!, Robert Latchman’s first solo exhibition at LAND Gallery, as a title encapsulates the commanding effect the Brooklyn Bridge has on this artist’s work. Latchman’s fascination with the Brooklyn Bridge began a few years ago. Since then, the bridge has served as his main subject, completely capturing the artist’s focus. The Brooklyn Bridge is not his only subject, but it is a dominating one; the work evokes permanence, construction, and calls attention to the history of place.

When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Art In General (145 Plymouth Street) ROBERT CUMMINGS New drawings from polymath artist Robert Cumming. Cumming’s nudes imply a compelling yet elusive narrative informed by his merging interests in painting, sculpture, and photography. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden, Inc. (91 Water Street) SPREAD WILD: PLEASURES OF THE YUCCA
10INB • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of October 4 - October 10, 2018
Paula Wilson’s mixed-media installation transforms Smack Mellon’s industrial space into a landscape resembling the high desert plains of New Mexico, where the artist currently lives. Central among the flora and fauna depicted are the yucca plant and yucca moth. Their pollination ritual represents a quintessential example of mutualism, which Wilson reimagines as a love scene. She outfits the gallery’s towering columns as larger than life naturalists who act as guides and observers of the display.

Theatre for Kids and of Families Park Slope Children Discover a ‘World Wonders’Opens at Early in Childcare Center By John Alexander INBROOKLYN
Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-aﬃrming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reﬂect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and oﬀ stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who ﬁnd it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, ﬁve blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reﬂected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig
and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.
It’s a virtual wonderland of learning at World of Wonders Early Childcare Center. For over 10 years, the in-demand childcare location has been providing nurturing childcare with a developmentally appropriate curriculum for children ages two to six in the heart of Brooklyn. On Wednesday, Sept. 26, World of Wonders hosted a grand opening for its newest center at 6705 13th Avenue in Dyker Heights.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Borough Pres Adams Wants Municipal Building Named After Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has started a petition on Change.org to have the Municipal Building in Downtown Brooklyn renamed after Brooklyn’s most famous U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Hon. Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Justice Ginsburg was born in Brooklyn, raised in Flatbush and attended James Madison High School before she went to Cornell University and Columbia Law School. “The life of Ruth Bader Ginsburg is a quintessential New York story. She grew up in Flatbush, the daughter of Jewish immigrants,” said Adams’ Change.org petition. “Despite family tragedies that struck Justice Ginsburg early in life, including the death of her 6-year-old sister and early passing of her mother Celia, she rose to the apex of her profession, staying true to her ideals and principles.
This Joralemon Street building, known as the Brooklyn Municipal Building.

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg has become an icon, affectionately referred to as the ‘Notorious RBG.’ In an era where popular culture puts performing artists and sports stars on a public pedestal, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has risen to incredible levels of iconic admiration and love.” Visit brooklyneagle.com for a full report.

Come See Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue, Before or After the L-Pocalypse Starts By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
When the L train stops running from Manhattan to Brooklyn, this will still be a prime place to party. We’re talking about the area around the Bedford Avenue L train station in Williamsburg. The area is a magnet: • For tourists. • For young people who want to be where other young people congregate on Saturday nights. • For Brooklyn residents who want to shop at Apple and live closer to the store on the corner of North 3rd Street and Bedford Avenue than the one near Barclays Center in Fort Greene. • For real estate nerds like us who are fascinated by Williamsburg’s jumble of historic rowhouses, spiffed-up factories, garish new apartment buildings and entertaining restaurants and shops.
The street and sidewalks are a bit chaotic around the Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street subway entrance because of construction that’s already underway though subway tunnel repairs haven’t yet begun. See related story. Even so, it’s great fun to stroll in a loop down Bedford Avenue to Grand Street then up Berry Street and back over on North 7th Street to the subway entrance.
Fancy British Cosmetics and A Former Sweater Factory
We took lots of photos when we walked this route the other day. You can find a full set of them at brooklyneagle.com. Highlights of our stroll include the fab oldfashioned rowhouse with a classic wooden storefront at 229 Bedford Ave. Its retail tenant is a British cosmetics retailer called Space NK. The entrance to Whole Foods at 238 Bedford Ave. was filled with a wall-to-wall display of potted orchids for sale. We love the former sweater factory at 218 Bedford Ave. that’s now a loft apartment building with a mini-mall on the ground floor. It was one of the neighborhood’s first industrial-to-residential conversions. Nearby, Senko Funeral Home at 213 Bedford Ave. is another eye-catching property. The wedge-shaped building at 292 Bedford Ave. on the corner of Grand Street is at least a century old. A cocktail bar called Kill Devil House of Dark Spirits recently opened there.
Nostalgia Alert: Gant Shirts Are Sold on Berry Street
On the corner of Berry and North 4th streets, a 1930s factory called the Lewis Steel Building is now a loft apartment complex. The two-story former factory at 160 Berry St. has a funky mural on a side wall that depicts a giant squirrel. A Shake Shack is located there.
We love the row of old-fashioned houses that starts at 107 North 5th St., where a shop called ID Menswear is located, and extends up Berry Street to the corner of North 6th Street. Gant, the clothing maker best known for its button-down shirts, is housed in a handsome low-rise building on a Berry Street corner. Its address is 115 North 6th St. There’s a glassy four-story condo building on another Berry Street corner. Its look is very typical of 21st-century Williamsburg. Its address is 120 North 7th St.
RETAIL VACANCIES ABOUND NEAR THE BEDFORD AVENUE L STOP By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn L-mageddon already has a prime span of Williamsburg’s Bedford Avenue in its grip. The L train shutdown between the Bedford Avenue station and Manhattan doesn’t start until next April. But construction machinery already clogs the streets outside the L train stop at the intersection of Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street. The North 7th Street block between Bedford and Driggs avenues is closed to vehicular traffic for construction in the road bed. A sign posted there says the closure will continue until June 2019. Work is underway to make improvements on the Bedford Avenue station. An online posting by the MTA says two new street-level stairways are being added to the station’s Bedford Avenue entrance, and two others are being added to its Driggs Avenue stop. The current construction in the street and the looming threat of diminished numbers of shoppers, diners and drinkers coming from Manhattan are apparently making vacant storefronts a bit harder to fill with tenants. When we were strolling around the area the other day, we made a list of empty ground-floor spaces. Afterwards, we tracked down some details about the vacant properties. What follows is a sampler of them. — Continued on page 23INB —

By the way, when we talk about Bedford Avenue leasing deals, we’re talking big bucks. In the Real Estate Board of New York’s most recently published survey, which was for the Winter 2018 time period, Bedford Avenue between Grand and North 12th streets was tied with Downtown Brooklyn’s Fulton Mall as the commercial corridors with the priciest ground-floor retail asking rents in our borough. The median asking rent for both locations was $350 per square foot per year, the survey indicates. Also, Bedford Avenue’s range of ground-floor retail asking rents — from $138 to $600 per square foot per year — had the highest ceiling among Brooklyn commercial corridors. The next highest retail rent range was on Fulton Mall, with a low of $320 and a high of $400 per square foot per year.

NYPD Officers Honored At Mass in Gravesend
Saints Simon and Jude Roman Catholic Church (near Van Sicklen Street and Avenue T in Gravesend) hosted an NYPD appreciation mass last weekend at the church. NYPD officers present included Brooklyn South Chief Charles Scholl. The parents of slain Police Officer Wenjian Liu were present. Msgr. David Cassato, Msgr. Robert Romano, Father John Maduri and Father Sijo George participated in the mass. Cassato spoke about the dedication of police officers in protecting the community and taught about St. Michael the Archangel as the patron saint of law enforcement. Retired NYPD Detective Daniel Sprague played the bagpipe as his son Owen, who suffers from Down Syndrome, marched by his side. Brooklyn Eagle photo by Arthur De Gaeta
Plymouth Church Hosts ‘Centered in Song’ Festival Plymouth Church invites Brooklyn Heights to become “Centered in Song.” The full-day program, on Saturday, Oct. 6, is the Center for Congregational Song’s final official launch event in a series of regional launches since the fall of 2017. The Hymn Society in the United States and Canada last year launched the Center for Congregational Song as its new resources and programmatic arm. These events celebrate the importance and power of congregational song. The Plymouth Worship and Arts Ministry hosts this program that features master song leader Mark Miller, who will lead a presentation on singing justice. Composer and author Ana Hernandez will lead worship and a session on rote-song singing. Other presentations will include an introduction to the Center for Congregational Song, led by the center’s founding director Brian Hehn, who will introduce the center and its mission. Plymouth member Jacque Jones, a recent past president of the Hymn Society, will lead a breakout session on hymn text writing. The day will conclude with a rousing hymn festival led by Mark Miller and Brian Hehn. This daylong song festival is expected to be of particular interest to sacred music profes-
sionals and those interested in the creation and use of congregational song. Admission is free, but registration is required (https://bit.ly/2NZiX7X). The hymn festival portion, starting at 5 p.m., open to the public and held in the history-rich Plymouth sanctuary on Orange Street in Brooklyn Heights, will focus on “Singing Justice.” During the workshop portion of the day, Hehn will introduce the concept of Sing Justice
in a presentation titled “Serve and Sing.” Participants will sing great hymns of the faith while writing notes of encouragement to the professionals who assist the victims of abuse and trafficking. Plymouth’s Anti-Trafficking Ministry will then use these notes. During another presentation in the Plymouth Sanctuary, Miller will explore themes of justice in worship and music. There will also be some free time for participants to experience guided tours of the church
that Plymouth History Ministry members will lead, and for shopping in Plymouth’s Underground Thrift Store, which supports anti-trafficking agencies. Participants are responsible for their own lunches. Plymouth is a block away from several eateries on Henry St. More information about the Center for Congregational Song may be found at congregationalsong.org.

ON OCT. 2, 1937, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The Hugo L. Black-Ku Klux Klan fight has only just begun, in the opinion of many well-informed Washington observers. The new Supreme Court justice’s sensational radio address last night, estimated to have been heard by upwards of 31,000,000 persons, received a widely varying reception among high Government officials, but the majority still remained critical. Although no plans were announced by the leaders of the battle on Black’s appointment, there was a definite hint of impeachment proceedings in one quarter … In the meantime the new justice is preparing to take his place on the bench of the highest court in the land on Monday when it reconvenes after its usual Summer recess … President [Franklin D.] Roosevelt, whose statement on the case at the White House some time ago was believed responsible for Mr. Black’s finally taking cognizance of the charge that he is a life member of the Klan, did not hear the broadcast.”

ON OCT. 3, 1946, the Eagle reported, “A veterans hospital for Brooklyn, one of the borough’s top-flight projects for years, was in the blueprint stage today. Col. W.F. Heavey, district engineer of the army’s corps of engineers, announced at district headquarters, 120 Wall St., Manhattan, that the architectural design had been approved and that architect-engineers have been directed to proceed with working drawings. The site of the facility, which covers 18 acres at Fort Hamilton, is bounded by Cropsey Ave. Extension, 1st Ave., MacArthur Ave. and Dyker Beach Park. Plans call for a main building and facilities for 1,000 beds, nurses quarters, separate buildings for attendants and staff, and a powerhouse, garage and laundry in a service building.”

ON OCT. 4, 1946, the Eagle reported, “The century-old Penny Bridge at the foot of Montague St., picturesque as it was, could no longer stand in the way of progress. The small metal footbridge which spanned the street where it cuts deeply from Brooklyn Heights to the East River, mecca of youngsters and nursemaids of the area by day and haven of spooners at night, has been torn down in the interests of the Brooklyn-Queens Connecting Highway. Engineers at Borough Hall today said that the present ramp will be filled in to bring everything to the upper level … Once before, in 1934, the span was in danger – but that time it was saved by the protests of aroused Brooklynites … One of the small bridge’s attractions was the splendid view of the Manhattan skyline it afforded. According to borough engineers, this view will be vastly improved by the improved park at the foot of the street now planned.” ON OCT. 6, 1892, the Eagle reported, “Tennyson is dead. His demise was anticipated both by the press and the people. The event occurred with sublime natural incidents. The published account refers to them. Exchange of worlds more poetical was never made. They thought him dying when he slept and sleeping when he died. America will share with England and both with all other lands a sense of profound loss.”

ON OCT. 6, 1941, the Brooklyn Eagle reported, “The Yankees won the World Series at Ebbets Field this afternoon when they scored their third straight victory over the Dodgers and their fourth in five games played. The score was 3 to 1. The Yankees scored a run, their third, in the fifth when [Tommy] Henrich blasted a homer.” The Yankees and Dodgers would meet again in 1947, 1949, 1952 1953, 1955 and 1956, with the Dodgers winning their only championship in Brooklyn in 1955. Since moving to Los Angeles, they have won titles in 1959, 1963, 1965, 1981 and 1988. ON OCT. 7, 1931, the Eagle reported, “Manager Paul Binstock of the Fortway Theater reports a rush of youngsters to join the Mickey Mouse Club about to be launched by that theater and co-operating stores among which membership blanks have been distributed. ‘The Mickey Mouse Club, suggested by the Mickey Mouse cartoons in sound, is one with a very definite purpose,’ explains Manager Binstock. ‘For instance, here is the creed of the Mickey Mouse Club: I will be a square shooter in my home, in school, on the playground, and wherever I may be. I will be truthful and honorable, and strive, always, to make myself a better and more useful little citizen. I will respect my elders and help the aged, the helpless and children smaller than myself. In short I will be a good American.” ON OCT. 8, 1888, the Eagle reported from London, “Nothing that the newspapers can present to their readers receives any attention except the Whitechapel murders. Important political utterances, which ordinarily would provoke general discussion, are unread and continental affairs of vital interest to England are thrust aside as of no consequence whatever. The police have adopted the theory that the letter and postal card signed ‘Jack the Ripper,’ sent to the Central News a week ago Thursday, emanated from the actual murderer. Facsimiles of the letter and card are posted in every police station and upon every dead wall, accompanied by a paragraph begging any person recognizing the writing to communicate with General Sir Charles Warren, Chief Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police. The Central News received another communication from ‘Jack the Ripper’ yesterday evening announcing his intention to commit more murder tonight and upon the strength of that the police have ordered every man on duty and are assisted by hundreds of amateur detectives. The reign of terror which has prevailed in the Whitechapel district during the past week still continues, and the arrival of daylight tomorrow morning will be hailed with joy by thousands of the denizens of that locality.” ON OCT. 8, 1942, the Eagle reported, “Brooklyn went scrap-happy today as the red-hot enthusiasm of the borough’s treasure hunters, reported in cold statistics hour by hour, passed the scheduled quota in the first four hours and speeded on, at an ever-increasing tempo which promised to bring in at least 100,000,000 pounds of vital war materials before the day was done. An army of almost 10,000 men and women, rolling through the borough’s 1,400 miles of scrap-laden streets aboard 1,400 trucks, was collecting vital metals at a rate which, before noon, hit well above 7,000,000 pounds per hour. By noon the Brooklyn total, including 10,742,545 pounds which were harvested before official collection day, reached 37,330,664 … One woman, who would not give her name, was asked by reporters why she was giving her baby’s bathtub away. She said, ‘I can bathe my baby in the regular bathtub. The rubber and metal which make up this bathinette will help save some American boy’s life and get rid of a Jap or a Nazi.’”

State Senate Rivals Spar over Constituent Services, Charter Schools BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
epublican state Sen. Martin Golden and his Democratic challenger Andrew Gounardes clashed over several issues in a heated debate at a Bay Ridge senior citizens center on Oct. 3, but it was a question from an audience member that generated the biggest controversy of the morning. During the question and answer session, Mallory McMahon, co-founder of group Fight Back Bay Ridge, charged that Golden has been ducking her when she has repeatedly requested to meet with him. Golden did not deny McMahon’s assertion, but said she is a Democratic Party loyalist who is not interested in engaging in a reasonable discussion of the issues with him and would rather engage in attacks on him. He also said the Fight Back Bay Ridge is not a non-partisan group and is registered as a political organization. “Mallory, I’m too busy for you,” Golden told McMahon, implying that he is busy working on behalf of his constituents to get into an argument with a partisan. Gounardes, who appeared shocked by the exchange, said that if he is elected, he would be willing to meet with all constituents, no matter what their political party aﬃliation might be. “I’m not afraid of people who disagree with me,” he said. The audience also got into the dispute. When McMahon, who has stated in the past that she is not a Democrat, said she wanted to meet with Golden to talk about education funding, a few audience members didn’t believe her and shouted at her to sit down. The verbal fireworks typified the tense atmosphere of the debate, which was sponsored by the Bay Ridge Inter-Agency Council on Aging and took place at the Fort Hamilton Senior Citizens Center at 9941 Fort Hamilton Parkway.

Andrew Gounardes. At one point, Golden noted that Gounardes had been endorsed the day before by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The Cuomo administration has been mired in corruption scandals, Golden said. Gounardes shot back that Golden was under investigation for expenditures. Golden angrily denied it. Golden then pointed to Gounardes and asked the audience, “This is what you want in Albany?” Golden, a retired police officer, was first elected to the state Senate in 2002 and represents the 22nd Senate District, a district that includes parts of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Manhattan Beach, Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach. Gounardes, a lawyer who serves as chief counsel to Borough President Eric Adams, ran against Golden in 2012 and lost. Throughout the debate, Golden sought to portray himself as a hands-on, community-minded, reliable elected official who gets things done. “You all know me. You know what I’ve done for this community,” he said. Among his
State Sen. Marty Golden. accomplishments, he said, are securing funding for senior citizen centers, schools and transportation. Locally, Golden said he has obtained $250,000 for the Bay Ridge Center and $1.4 million for elder abuse prevention programs, and has fought for funding for drug prescription programs and the Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption (SCRIE). On transportation, he said the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is currently building an elevator at the 86th Street R train station and that there are plans to build elevators at the 95th Street and 77th Street stations, all at his urging Gounardes, by contrast, sought to portray himself as a breath of fresh air who could bring much-needed change to Albany. “I know that the status quo is leaving us behind. We need fresh ideas up in Albany. You’re not going to solve these problems if you keep sending the same people to Albany year after year,” he told the audience. Gounardes’s ideas include appointing a rider to represent subway passengers on the MTA board, establishing a GI Bill for
senior citizens who might want to go back to college or train for a new profession, and awarding tax credits to people who serve as caregivers to family members. Golden and Gounardes also clashed over charter schools when they took turns answering a question about education. Charter schools are publicly funded but are privately run. There has been talk of a charter school opening at the site of the former Angel Guardian Home at 12th Avenue and 63rd Street in Dyker Heights. The Angel Guardian Home, which opened in 1899 as an orphanage, was recently sold to a new owner. “We don’t need more charter schools in this neighborhood,” Gounardes said. Golden contended that charter schools could help alleviate overcrowding in surrounding public schools. “We have the most overcrowded school district in the city of New York,” he said. “Charter schools are public schools.” The two candidates also disagreed on the Child Victims Act, a bill that was drafted in the wake of the Catholic Church sex abuse
scandal. The bill would ease the statute of limitations for adults seeking to bring criminal charges against Catholic priests and other people who sexually abused them when they were children. Gounardes favors it. Golden expressed concerns about it. “Let’s talk about justice,” said Gounardes, who added that many victims were abused as children and have never been able to discuss it until now. “We need to erase the statute of limitations.” Golden said that would create problems. “If you get rid of the statute of limitations for this crime, you would have to eliminate it for all crimes,” he said. Golden supports another bill to create a Child Victims Fund that would set up a fund for victims to seek financial settlements stemming from past abuses. Other debates that took place at the forum Wednesday morning did not generate the drama of the Golden-Gounardes ﬁght, largely because of the absence of key candidates. U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan, a Republican representing Southwest Brooklyn and
Staten Island, did not attend the forum, moderator Peter Killen saying that Donovan was in Washington. That left the stage to his Democratic opponent, Max Rose, and Green Party candidate Henry Bardel. Another scheduled debate fell through when Republican Steve Saperstein sent his regrets and did not come to debate Democrat Mathylde Frontus. The two are running for the state Assembly seat in the 46th Assembly District. But Saperstein had a good excuse, according to Liam McCabe, a friend who read a statement from him announcing that he and his wife had a baby girl the day before. Frontus was among those who applauded congratulations to the Sapersteins. She had the stage to herself and talked to the audience about her proposals. Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, a Republican representing Bay Ridge and Staten Island, did show up, as did her Democratic opponent, Adam Baumel, who works as an Uber driver for wheelchair-bound riders. Their debate was a quiet event that generated no ﬁreworks.

Locals Lend Helping Hand in Wake of Bay Ridge Resident’s Death BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM
grieving Bay Ridge family is getting a helping hand thanks to the neighborhood. Following the death of 61-year-old Bay Ridge resident Ronald Shammas, who was killed in a car crash Saturday, Sept. 22, friends, neighbors and strangers alike are stepping in to help his family. Shammas, died early Saturday morning after suﬀering a medical episode behind the wheel and losing control of his vehicle while driving eastbound on 92nd Street. He collided with another car while making a right turn onto Fifth Avenue. A GoFundMe page has been created on his family’s behalf with all donations going to paying for Shammas’ funeral services. In just four days, 72 people have helped raise $6,325 of the intended $10,000 goal. The page features a YouTube video displaying several photos of Shammas with his children. “He was driving from another day of work when the unexpected happened,” the video reads. “Ron had a major heart attack behind the wheel which led to a fatal car accident. He was rushed to the hospital and doctors did everything they could. But Ron didn’t make it.” The video also explains the impact the accident has
had on Shammas’ family. “His kids had to ﬁnd out unexpectedly that their beloved father had passed away,” it read on. “Ron was a good man with a huge heart. His three kids meant everything to him.” “On behalf of the Kettle, Tuscany, and Ho Brah we oﬀer our deepest condolences,” wrote one donator, calling Shammas “a sweetheart of a man.” “We all loved Ron very much and will miss him dearly.” Sources say Shammas was a delivery driver for a number of local eateries. Another called him “the best Santa ever.” “His kindness went far above his annual red suit,” the commenter wrote. “May his beloved children keep his spirit close them always. . .Every conversation with your dad started [and] ended with you! God bless you all in this time of great sorrow.” The page’s video also makes a statement. “Ron didn’t get the chance to say goodbye or I love you one last time,” it reads. “Let this story be a reminder to us all that life is precious, and while alive and able, let us love with all our heart. “Although we can’t bring Ron back, we can keep him in our hearts and prayers and we can do our best to support his family,” the video concludes.

Bay Ridge Friends Help Raise Awareness of Crohn’s and Colitis BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
sme Ellison and Kristine Kelleher are like Batman and Robin in the ﬁght against Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBD). For the long-time friends, this battle is personal as they join forces to help raise awareness of the debilitating diseases. Kelleher has suffered from ulcerative colitis, a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that aﬀects the lining of the digestive tract, since she was in college and has since undergone a total colectomy. Ellison has suﬀered from Crohn’s disease since ﬁrst being diagnosed in 2009. “The mission of the

Friends Kristine Kelleher and Esme Ellison are determined to help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and colitis. Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation is to cure IBD,” Ellison told this paper. “One out of every 200 infants, children and adults in America suffers from Inflammatory
Bowel Disease. There is no cure and the incidence of Crohn’s and colitis is increasing worldwide.” On Saturday, October 6, Ellison and Kelleher are
hosting the Bingo Power 2 Cure fundraiser for IBD at the Harp Bar at 7710 Third Avenue in Bay Ridge. It is in preparation for Spin4 Crohn’s & Colitis Cures, the oﬃcial Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation indoor cycling event on Sunday, Oct. 21. Ellison and Kelleher have committed to raising at least $1,000 at the Harp Bar where guests can purchase $20 bingo cards, with each card valid for all 10 games, and win a variety of prizes. Cash or checks are accepted with all checks made out to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation. “The silver lining of this disease is that it helped form a lifelong friendship of two people dedicated to help ﬁnding a cure,” Ellison added.

wo women, one 65, the other 47, were hit by a dump truck in Sunset Park on Thursday, Sept. 20, leaving one in critical condition.

Both were taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn where the 65-year-old

down from Fourth Avenue on 43rd and made a right turn on Third Avenue. It looked like he didn’t see the two ladies that were
the two back tires of the truck just ran over one of them. It was a terrible thing to see.” Locals say that the area has had its share of accidents. “Two or three days ago there was a lady who was hit also at the same spot,” Ayala added. “I wish everyone would be careful,” said another witness. “I see about three people getting run over every two to three weeks. Everyone has to be more cautious.” The operator of the truck remained on the scene. The investigation is ongoing. Additional reporting contributed by Loudlabs News NYC

FIAO Honors Grand Marshals, Preps for Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM
earing up for Columbus Day. The Federation of Italian Americans (FIAO) kicked oﬀ the lead-up to its annual parade with its yearly fundraising brunch. The event, held at Sirico’s, 8023 13th Ave., on Sunday, September 30 honored this year’s grand marshals: New York State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Bruno, 62nd Precinct Communit y Aﬀairs Detective Stephen Agosta, Principal of P.S. 748 for Global Scholars Ursula Annio and past president of Ben-Bay Kiwanis and FIAO and Maimonides Medical Center Trustee Frank Naccarato. President of FIAO Carlo Scissura discussed the signiﬁcance of the day. “It’s an opportunity to do two things,” he explained. “One is of course to highlight the grand marshals of the parade. There are four great grand marshals this year so we were very excited to honor them, highlight them and give them the awards. It also helps raise money for the parade which is an expensive proposition. We had one of our most successful brunches ever, so we’re really happy about it.” The honorees were selected based on exceptional community service, Scissura said.

Bay Ridge Credit Union Merges with Long Island Credit Union
nother Bay Ridge ﬁnancial institution will no longer carry the moniker “Bay Ridge” as part of its corporate name. First it was the Bay Ridge Savings Bank that was gobbled up by the Anchor Savings Bank. Then, years later, the old Bay Ridge Savings and Loan Association Bank disappeared. Now, as of October 1, with the Bay Ridge Federal Credit Union merger with the Hauppauge, Long Island-based Island Federal Credit Union, the name Bay Ridge fades away again! The deal was conﬁrmed by Bay Ridgeite Anthony Grigos, the former president and CEO of the Bay Ridge Federal Credit Union. With the new merger, Island Credit Union reportedly will have combined assets of $1.6 billion and close to 50,000 members. Island has announced that the former headquarters of the BRFCU at 1750 86th Street will become the 10th branch of the Island network. We were advised that members and depositors will see no staﬀ changes at the old BRFCU site. In fact, they will now also be able to use and carry out transactions at Island’s other nine branches. Membership in the Brooklyn Consumer Federation will

The federation at its recent board meeting reappointed retired NYPD Detective Peter Killen as executive director. Killen, a past president of the Bay Ridge Community Council, is also the current president of the Bay Ridge chapter of the AARP. *** On Saturday, October 6, the Federation of Italian American Organizations of Brooklyn will commemorate the 526th anniversary of the discovery of the New World by Italian explorer and seafarer Christopher Columbus, as well as celebrate Italian culture
and heritage. The occasion will be heralded by the 37th annual Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade along 18th Avenue, aka “Cristoforo Colombo Boulevard,” from 61st Street to Benson Avenue, kicking oﬀ at 1 p.m. (Note: I must have missed my morning coﬀee; we had the wrong date in last week’s column.)

My home landline phone has been out for
most of the week. Verizon customer service claims it might take at least a week for one of its ﬁeld technicians to come out to correct the problem. First, customer service asked me whether I had FIOS service. When I said no, I was told Verizon was backlogged as a result of the stormy weather over the tri-state area. It is also aﬀecting my Internet service. I tried pleading and escalating, all to no avail. I believe Verizon has been laying oﬀ too many of its hard-wire technicians and when it comes to major disruptions, it is unable to respond quickly.
The Property Tax Disparity in Brooklyn Must End
roperty taxes are easily one of the top issues aﬀecting our community and other pockets of New York City, and a leading reason why our city has become so unaﬀordable. As the system currently exists, low and middle-income New Yorkers are subsidizing the property taxes of those living in the highest valued properties in our city’s most aﬄuent neighborhoods. It sends the wrong message when the mayor of our city lives in a home valued at $1.7 million and only pays $3,600 in property tax while others are paying twice that for homes valued at half as much. To use a similarly priced home in Bay Ridge as an example: One of my
constituents has a home valued at $1.5 million and is paying $11,000 (nearly triple) in property taxes. Another resident in my district has a home valued at $369,000 and pays $4,200, still more than our mayor. This is a real ‘Tale of Two Cities’ and one that must be rectiﬁed so it is fair, equitable and aﬀordable for all. Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Canarsie, Brownsville, Flatbush, Mill Basin, Gerritsen Beach, Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Gravesend, Marine Park, Midwood, Sheepshead Bay, Bergen Beach, Bath Beach and Bensonhurst are just a few of the neighborhoods in Kings County that suﬀer by paying double or triple what that their neighbors in Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn Heights

years. In this case, property taxes would be capped based on a designated percentage of the individual’s income to prevent senior citizens from being forced to sell due to inability to pay their annual property tax bill. Finally, New York City should be subjected to a two percent cap on its property tax levy, which is the amount of money city government seeks from property taxpayers. Currently, New York City is one of the few municipalities in the State of New York that does not have a cap on the property tax levy. As a result, we have seen the mayor and City Council increase the property tax levy by a whopping 44 percent to over $27 billion since 2013, placing an incredible
burden on New York City citizens. In addition to homeowners struggling to keep up with this pace, we all know that as property taxes go up, landlords pass that cost on to renters. Rapidly increasing property taxes have made our city unaffordable and are driving our low and middle-income earners to other cities. Mayor de Blasio’s property tax commission is coming to Brooklyn on October 15. Let’s make sure we get out there and tell the commission that our community should not be subsidizing the property taxes of the city’s most afﬂuent and expensive ones. Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis represents the 64th A.D. in Bay Ridge and Staten Island.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey
Traditions Carry Bay Ridge Into Colorful, Festive Season Ragamuffin Parade, 3rd Ave. Festival, Pioneers Reception Among Highlights Bay Ridge has remained Bay Ridge because of sustaining neighborhood traditions that welcome and charm newcomers and visitors while reminding the rest of us what a special place this is. For instance, we are now contemplating our fall festival season, which will include the Ragamuffin Parade, the Third Avenue Festival, the 25th Annual Pioneer Reception and the extraordinary Haunted Halloween Walk, organized by Chip Cafiero and state Sen. Marty Golden, which draws thousands of children and parents each year. All of these defining events don’t just happen, nor are they sponsored and paid for by the city. Just about all of them are supported by volunteers who collect funds in the form of tickets, journal ads and other contributions. This past Sunday, the Ragamuffin Parade Committee — serving children here by the tens of thousands since 1967 — held its annual fundraiser at the Bay Ridge Manor honoring Grand Marshal Leo Lykourezos and “Men of the Year” Mike Esposito and Ted Nugent. The committee is led by President Arlene Keating, Vice President Laurie Windsor, Secretary Rose Gangi and Treasurer Ilene Sacco. Their top-notch team of volunteers includes Colleen Golden, Rose Gangi, Liz Amato, David Annarummo, Jeanine Condon, Ted General, Allison Greaker, Sonia AbiHabib, Michele Pollifront-Hass, Pat and Peter Killen, Kevin Peter Carroll, attorney Joann Monaco, Linda O’Neill, Jen Reinhard and David and Sandy Sacco. They held a huge and profitable (we hope) round of drawings and raffles at the luncheon. Receiving special attention that afternoon was the very active Merchants of Third Avenue Business-Civic Association led by President Bob Howe, who has been selected as the emcee for the colorful Ragamuffin Parade set for Oct. 13 along Third Avenue. (All three of this year’s Ragamuffin honorees happen to be Third
Avenue merchants.) The following day will be the 44th Annual Third Avenue Festival — the safest and most successful in our fair city, thanks in large part to “Festival Guy” Cafiero, one of the handful of leaders who guarantees that, through volunteerism and unity, Bay Ridge remains great. Third Avenue has had a special relationship with the Ragamuffin Parade thanks in part to a move by Third Avenue leaders like Al Nahas, Jim Thompson and Harry English in the 1970s to sort of adopt the parade, which had celebrated its first several years on Fourth Avenue.

Third Ave. Pioneer Project Spotlights Leaders on Third and Beyond By the time we’ve recovered from the very special Ragamuffin/Festival weekend, we’ll be ready for the 25th Annual Merchants of Third Avenue Pioneer Reception, set for Oct. 22 at the Bay Ridge Manor. As Pioneer Committee Co-Chair Lori Pedone explains, “We started selecting pioneers from the ranks of Third Avenue businesspeople, but the Pioneers concept soon proved so popular that a new Civic Award category was created, giving us a wider charter to bring in honorees such as then-Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce (BCC) President Carlo Scissura, New York City Business Partnership leader Kathy Wylde and, this year, Rick Russo, who is the acting president of the BCC.” “We still focus like a laser on the individual merchants on the avenue,” Howe said, “because as we know small businesses produce most of the jobs here and throughout the country.” Among those selected in this category this year is Anthony Perricone, proprietor of Anthony’s Butcher Shop at 74th Street on Third Avenue. “We understand the various chain and box stores will come and go,” Howe said, “But we — and our community — rely on the traditional, reliable shops like the one run by Anthony and his

OPINION Senator “in Training”
tate Sen. Golden admits, “It is no secret that the finances of the MTA are in complete disarray. They are accountable to no one and their debt continues to rise, while the service they provide fails its commuters.” He knows that our transportation system has failed commuters in the 22nd District as well as all of Brooklyn and has done nothing in the past 16 years to fix the problem. Even though Golden is the vice chair of the majority conference in the state Senate, he has only been able to stymie proposals to ﬁx what is most deﬁnitely a broken transportation system. StreetsPAC, an advocacy group for increased street safety and improved transportation for commuters, endorsed Andrew Gounardes, Democrat, to
unseat Sen. Golden in the 22nd District which covers Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Marine Park, Gerritsen Beach, Gravesend, Manhattan Beach, Sheepshead Bay and Midwood this November. Transportation advocates recognize that Andrew Gounardes is the candidate to restore speed cameras and to implement street safet y improvements. StreetsPAC criticized Golden as a legislator who “has distinguished himself primarily as an obstacle” to progress in street safety and better transportation for commuters. Gounardes, on the other hand, has volunteered on the Community Board 10 subcommittee dedicated to street safety, and has worked with BRAKES (Bay Ridge Advocates for Keeping Everyone Safe) on
pedestrian safety issues. Golden, as I have previously noted, collected 14 speed camera summonses for his speeding in safety zones and failed to extend the lifesaving speed camera program. Golden has been in Albany for 16 years and has done everything possible to maintain his seat while helping Republicans maintain a stranglehold on power there. The balance of power in Albany will be decided this November because the Republicans control the state Senate, 32 seats to 31, with the help of a Democratic turncoat, Sen. Simcha Felder, who votes with the GOP. Defeating Golden in November could give Democrats control of the chamber and a chance to make some real changes in New York City and throughout the state. It has never been more

Gounardes supports a restoration of the speed camera program and the creation of a fair congestion price system to lessen vehicular traﬃc as well as to fund mass transit. Gounardes had stated he will “support congestion
s much as local Democrats would like you to believe their rhetoric that a blue wave is descending onto Southern Brooklyn, the race to watch is the one between Republican/Conservative/ I n d e p e n d e n c e / R e f or m Party candidate Steve Saperstein and Democratic primary winner Mathylde Frontus with the loser of the Democratic Assembly primary Ethan Lustig-Elgrably on the Working Families Party line. In this seat, the Democrats might very well see RED. Saperstein brings to the race an impressive background as a public school teacher of the deaf who happens to hold a law degree. Last year, he ran for City Council, winning the portions of the Council district that overlap with this Assembly district against a popular city councilmember. This year, Steve is ringing
doorbells, doing mail, attending events everywhere, issuing statements and developing solutions to a whole slew of issues aﬀecting this district. Steve has received several important union endorsements. He is successfully raising the type of money that will continue to give him the resources necessary to win this campaign. He has been endorsed by Congressmember Dan Donovan, state Sen. Marty Golden (whom I serve as chief of staﬀ ) and Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis who have made many appearances with him. Frontus on September 13 (it was not oﬃcial for almost two more weeks) won a tough primary against two Democratic machines including the Bay Ridge Democrats who were part of a deal earlier in the summer to drop their candidate to assist Ethan. From Primary Day to
this week, she essentially put her general election campaign on hold as she and her team dealt with the recount. After that, she and her staﬀ took some time oﬀ to recharge. Steve used this time to campaign, gain supporters and lock in votes for November.
The bottom line is that you have the right not to vote, but no good reason not to vote. The district essentially comprises Bay Ridge from 81st Street to the Verrazano Bridge, most of Dyker Heights, some of Bath Beach, all of Coney Island and Seagate, plus Trump Village and Brighton Beach. There will be a number of debates between now and election Day including one being held by the Dyker Heights Civic Association on Tuesday, October 9 at 8 p.m. at St. Philip’s Church Hall, 80th Street and 11th
WE THE PEOPLE pricing provided that two important criteria are met. First, the funds raised from any congestion pricing plan must be dedicated solely and wholly to our mass transit system, specifically our subways and buses. Second, the proposed investments to mass transit must be deﬁnite, concrete, and immediate, and must include upgrades to the signaling network and making all subway stations accessible for all.” This is something that Sen. Golden and his upstate Republican cronies have failed to do. Golden, although on an MTA oversight committee, has done nothing substantive to hold the MTA to account for the dismal service provided to R train
riders and bus passengers throughout South Brooklyn. StreetPAC pointed out that Golden blocked eﬀorts to improve bus service in his district last year while he and upstate Republicans cut funding for the MTA. Republicans in the state Senate including Golden have made safe streets and improved transportation partisan issues, so it is time to vote for a change. Electing Gounardes to the state Senate will provide a representative with the right priorities for street safety and improved transportation. The election of Andrew Gounardes this November is the key to unlocking a better and brighter future for New York roads, rails and subways.
COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR
Avenue. The Bay Ridge Community Council will also be holding a debate. There are certain to be other forums and debates. Sadly, this district has had its problems. The last two Democratic assemblymembers were arrested, with Alec Brook-Krasny (who stepped down from the post to take a job in the private sector) awaiting trial on charges stemming from his post-Assembly career, and his successor Pam Harris pleading guilty to multiple charges. Between now and November, I will say this a lot. The election is Tuesday, November 6. It is very important that you plan to vote. Mark it on your calendar. People often tell me that they do not have the time.
The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. No one in Brooklyn is more than a few blocks from his or her polling site. If you are going to be out of your county all day, you are allowed to vote by absentee ballot. Applications for an absentee ballot can be found on line at the New York City Board of Elections website. If you are not registered to vote, you have until October 12. The bottom line is that you have the right not to vote, but no good reason not to vote. *** As usual, the Ragamuﬃn lunch was a great success. The main dining room at the Bay Ridge Manor was full as Ragamuffin President Arlene Keating presented the honorees, Grand Marshal Leo Lykourezos and Men of the Year Michael Esposito and Ted
Nugent to those assembled. A number of public oﬃcials including Donovan, Golden, Malliotakis and Councilmember Justin Brannan, together with Conservative Party oﬃcials State Chairperson Mike Long and Brooklyn Chairperson Fran Vella-Marrone, were in attendance. The parade kicks oﬀ at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, running along Third Avenue. It is the parade’s 52nd year. I remember as a child sitting on the lawn of my grandparents’ house at 86th Street and Colonial Road (the ﬁrst few years it went up along 86th Street) watching the parade with my family. I think more than most things, this parade has been a consistent ongoing part of Bay Ridge life which has created countless lifelong memories for children.

special collection for the NYPD’s ‘With Arms Wide Open Foundation,’ which supports police families who have children with special needs.” Sixty-Second Precinct Commanding Oﬃcer Capt. Anthony Longobardi attended along oﬃcers from the 62nd Precinct. Blue
lapel pins were distributed to honor the men and women in blue. Particularly poignant was the presence of the parents of Detective Wenjian Liu, a Bensonhurst resident who was killed in 2014 while sitting in his police car, along with partner, Detective Rafael Ramos. Daniel Sprague, retired pipe sergeant with the New York City Police Emerald Society Pipes and Drums, performed “Amazing Grace” on bagpipes as his son Owen stood by his side. “This annual event is a win-win for all involved… the parish, the community, the NYPD and a great non-profit organization,” added Dellamura. After mass, everyone was invited to enjoy a dessert reception in the church hall.

Tigers Engineer Air Attack over Tech BY JIM DOLAN FORT HAMILTON 46 BROOKLYN TECH 6 he Tigers (3-1) earned their third win of the 2018 season over a 1-3 Brooklyn Tech as Fort Hamilton quarterback Marquis Willoughby had a career day rushing for two touchdowns and going seven for 11 for 220 yards passing with three touchdowns. “Marquis really put on a show for us today,” said senior co-captain Sean Hart referring Willoughby’s ability to spot his receivers and to hit them downﬁeld. Hosting the Engineers for Fort Hamilton’s second home game, Tech scored on a 15-yard run by Koby Lee to put the Engineers up 6-0 for the ﬁrst quarter. Going into the second quarter, the Tigers then scored in quick succession as Willoughby made a 40-yard gain followed by a 15-yard rush to tie the game at 6-6. Midway in the second quarter, Zyeonrey Jones gambled and picked up a dangerously bouncing ball to score on a 60-yard punt return. Jadin Goodman made a juggling sideline catch at the

In addition to scoring two rushing touchdowns, Fort Hamilton quarterback Marquis Willoughby rolls out of the pocket to pass over a rushing Brooklyn Tech defense in a game that the Tiger signal caller pass for 220 yards and three touchdowns in a 46-6 rout of the Engineers. 40-yard line before he was pushed out of bounds to set up the next touchdown. Willoughby then followed with another touchdown run for 35 yards once he saw all his receivers were covered downﬁeld to put the Tigers ahead 22-6 at the half. In the third quarter, the Tigers quickly went to
work to put the game out of reach for the Engineers as Willoughby rolled out to make a shovel pass to CeVon Marshall at the 20-yard line. From there, Willoughby hit Marshall again for the score as the wide receiver made one of his patented diving end zone catches.
The third quarter ended with Willoughby finding Orion Clarke Tenn open downﬁeld on a 45-yard pass play for a 38-6 Tiger lead. In the fourth quarter, the Tigers finished the game with one more score as Goodman showed that he was fully recovered from an arm injury, reaching
high over his head for the reception to score on 60-yard pass play for the 46-6 ﬁnal score. Besides praising the defense that held Tech scoreless for three quarters, Coach Reggie Wilson pointed out how many members of his offense can be scoring threats as
long as they continue to practice to get better and gain conﬁdence. “We’ve got a lot of first time starting players this year to give us a wide open team with a lot of possibilities,” said Wilson. Next week on Fri., Oct. 5, the Tigers take on 4-0 Curtis in Staten Island.
Housing Programs Need #MeToo Moment, Velázquez Says BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
he #MeToo movement is coming to America’s public housing programs, according to a Brooklyn lawmaker who is pushing the federal government to dig deeper into sexual harassment complaints by tenants. The day before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court and the testimony of alleged sexual assault victim Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez introduced a bill aimed at combating the sexual harassment. Velázquez’s bill, the “Sexual Ha ra ssment Awareness and Prevention Act” would require the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to work with other agencies to collect information on
sexual harassment and abuse claims related to housing. Velázquez, a Democrat who represents Sunset Park, Gowanus and Red Hook, as well as other portions of Brooklyn and Manhattan, said she introduced the legislation because housing needs a #MeToo moment, too. She introduced the bill on Sept. 26. “If the ‘Me Too’ movement has taught us anything it is this: Anywhere there is an imbalance of power, from Hollywood to Wall Street to the workplace, there’s room for abuse and, sadly, there’s the potential for sexual misconduct,” she said in a statement. The government should be working to make sure that housing programs across the country come under additional scrutiny, according to Velázquez. “We need to ensure that
when it comes to the housing sphere, we are taking a hard look at these kinds of abuse and that we are standing with survivors, whether it is a tenant in public housing who is harassed by a landlord, a Section 8 recipient who is subject to unwanted advances from a voucher administrator or someone who is treated inappropriately when applying for a government-backed mortgage,” she stated. Many tenants who are sexually harassed do not report the incidents out of fear of being evicted, Velázquez said. Specifically, her bill would require HUD to collect data on every sexual harassment complaint, commission the Government Accountability Oﬃce (GAO) to study the effectiveness of existing programs the agency has in place to address sexual

U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez says “We need to ensure that when it comes to the housing sphere, we are taking a hard look” at potential abuse. harassment and set up a task force on that would put GAO’s recommendations
into practice. “The first step to solving any problem is fully
grasping its scope and this bill would ensure federal agencies are proactively looking at this issue. We need a full accounting of how widespread this problem is and that requires diﬀerent federal agencies to step up and tackle this issue head on. We are approaching a long overdue turning point in American culture with regards to sexual misconduct,” Velázquez said. Velázquez’s bill has been endorsed by several organizations, including the National Fair Housing Alliance, the National Housing Law Project, the National Alliance to End Sexual Violence, the National Network to End Domestic Violence, the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty, the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law and the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
