Former Dodgers Great Don Newcombe Dies At 92 The Associated Press

Don Newcombe, the hard-throwing Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher who was one of the first black players in the major leagues and who went on to win the Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player and Cy Young awards, has died. He was 92. The team confirmed that Newcombe died Tuesday morning after a lengthy illness. “Don Newcombe’s presence and life established him as a role model for Major Leaguers across the country,” Dodgers President Stan Kasten said. “He was a constant presence at Dodger Stadium, and players always gravitated to him for his endless advice and leadership. The Dodgers meant everything to him, and we are all fortunate he was a part of our lives.” Newcombe, like Dodgers teammate Jackie Robinson, was signed by Branch Rickey from the Negro Leagues and went on to make a huge mark in the major leagues. “Newk” was a fierce presence on the mound, a 6-foot-4 and 225-pound bear of a man who stared down hitters and backed up anyone foolish enough to crowd the plate. He was a four-time All-Star and won 20 games three different times. “Don Newcombe had a ton of talent and he was a great competitor,” former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda, who was a teammate of Newcombe’s, said in a statement. “He was a helluva pitcher and he was one of the best hitting pitchers I have ever seen.” His greatest year was 1956 when he went 27-7 and won both the Cy Young Award, then only given to one pitcher for both leagues, and the National League MVP award. “He was a powerhouse. I don’t think he really got enough credit for his overall performance,” said former teammate Carl Erskine. “He threw a fastball that had great location and a curveball that was a short, hard breaking pitch.” Newcombe, Robinson and catcher Roy Campanella were a trio of black stars for the Dodgers who often supported one another. “We came up with a strategy,” Newcombe later recalled. “We knew the impact we were attempting would have. We had to endure. [Robinson’s] character, his backbone, his guts — those were the keys. Jackie was the leader under Mr. Rickey.” The three talked frequently, Campanella and Newcombe from the Dodgers’ Nashua, New Hampshire, farm team and Robinson from Brooklyn. “We talked about how things were going,” Newcombe said. “What if somebody charged the mound on me? What would I do? Nobody did. “I remember in the New England league, a catcher threw dirt in Roy’s face. He said, ‘If you do that again, I’ll personally take your arm out of its socket.’ They challenged us. They did anything they could to break down the idea.” Newcombe’s Dodgers were perennial alsorans who specialized in winning the National League pennant then losing the World Series to the Yankees. Newcombe played on three pennant winners with the Dodgers and the World Series champions in 1955, the year they finally beat the Yankees. Born June 14, 1926, in Madison, New Jersey, Newcombe pitched in the Negro Leagues starting in 1944 at age 18. In 1945 he had an 8-3 record with the Newark Eagles and won the attention of the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. In 1989, at a reunion of Negro League greats, Newcombe gave a speech in Atlanta where he reflected on his experience. “I wish that in some few words I could wipe away that pain you’ve suffered so long because you have skin this color,” he said. “We know that we would not be here today if it were not for the Negro Leagues. I thank God I had the chance to walk shoulder to shoulder with you.” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Newcombe was a friend and mentor who had a great impact on his life. “What he did for baseball, as being one of the first African-American players, his career with the Dodgers and how he impacted the organization,” Roberts said after spring training workouts in Glendale, Arizona. “Sharing stories about Jackie Robinson and his plight helped me and furthered my education on our history, so 2 • Brooklyn Eagle • Thursday, February 21, 2019

we lost a great man, a great Dodger today.” When asked if he shares Newcombe’s history with current players, so they understand his accomplishments and his sacrifices, Roberts said, “Absolutely, Don was around a lot for games and he would spend time with our players individually and as a team. So, for his legacy to live on, through me, through other players is paramount.” Dodgers reliever Kenley Jansen was close with Newcombe and said he was at Jansen’s wedding. “He’d always talk to me about how strong I have to be. He spoke to me a lot about mental toughness and physical preparation, running, conditioning. He’d say be aggressive out there. He kept me motivated,” Jansen said in a statement on Twitter. “He taught me about the history of the game. He talked to me about being a leader. He talked to me about being a good husband and a good father.” Newcombe played in Nashua of the New England League and for teams in Montreal, Venezuela and Cuba before joining the parent club in 1949. He went 17-8 in 1949, his first season with the Dodgers, and was named NL Rookie of the Year. Newcombe, Robinson and Larry Doby of the Cleveland Indians became the first black players to appear in an All-Star game that season, when the Dodgers hosted the mid-season contest at Ebbets Field. On July 8, 1949, Newcombe and Hank Thompson of the New York Giants became the first black pitcher and hitter to face each other in a major league game. In 1950 Newcombe went 19-11, and in 1951 he went 20-9, but he failed to win the season’s most important game. He was the starting pitcher in the decisive playoff series between the Dodgers and the Giants, and he held a 4-1 lead going into the ninth inning. But he gave up three hits to the first four batters and was replaced by Ralph Branca, who quickly achieved baseball infamy when Bobby Thomson lofted a pennant-winning home run, “the shot heard ’round the world.” Like many ballplayers of his generation, Newcombe lost some prime years to military service, giving the Army the 1952 and 1953 seasons. “Wait until next year” had become a virtual mantra in Brooklyn as the Dodgers won the National League title in 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953, only to lose the World Series every time. Then came 1955, “the year next year finally came” in Brooklyn parlance. The Dodgers finally beat the Yankees in the World Series and Newcombe went 20-5 during the regular season, winning 18 of his first 19 decisions. On the day of his 20th win he hit his seventh home run of the season, a National League record for a pitcher at the time. But Newcombe always struggled in the postseason. He lost the first game of the 1955 series to the Yankees and was passed over in favor of

Johnny Podres after preparing to pitch in Game 7. He was 0-4 with an 8.59 ERA in career World Series appearances. In his MVP year of 1956, Newcombe became the first black pitcher to lead either league in wins. Brooklyn won another pennant that year, but lost the World Series to the Yankees in seven games, with Newcombe defeated in the final game. Newcombe faded quickly after 1956 as he pitched for the transplanted Los Angeles Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians. He had a brief resurgence for the Reds, going 13-8 with a 3.16 ERA in 1959. In a 10-year major-league career he had a 149-90 record and a 3.56 ERA. He pitched for Spokane, Washington, in the Pacific Coast League in 1961 and finished his professional career in Japan in 1962. Alcoholism helped lead to his early retirement. He gave up drinking in later years and worked for drug and alcohol prevention programs. He continued working for the Dodgers, most recently as special adviser to the chairman. He was a frequent presence at the stadium in recent years, always nattily attired in a suit and tie with a fedora atop his head. He took part with Sandy Koufax in a first pitch ceremony before Game 7 of the 2017 World Series vs. Houston at Dodger Stadium and was at the park for last fall’s World Series vs Boston. In 2011, Detroit pitcher Justin Verlander joined Newcombe as the second man to sweep the sport’s three major awards. Newcombe introduced Verlander at the following year’s Baseball Writers Association dinner. Newcombe wasn’t elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, due mostly to his Army and alcohol-shortened career. He kept virtually no memorabilia from his career. He sold his Rookie of the Year, MVP, and Cy Young trophies, along with his World Series ring, to filmmaker Spike Lee. He pushed for greater pension rights for former Dodgers and promoted the idea of a national holiday to honor Jackie Robinson. In 1968, Newcombe met with Martin Luther King Jr. just 28 days before the civil rights leader’s assassination. King had dinner at Newcombe’s home in Los Angeles before returning to Atlanta. According to Newcombe, King told him, “Don, you’ll never know how easy you and Jackie and Doby and Campy made it for me to do my job by what you did on the baseball field.” Newcombe outlived most of his Dodger teammates and was deeply affected when Campanella and Don Drysdale died within a week of each other in 1993. “When tragic things happen, it gets the guts out of you,” he said at the time. “You try to be strong, but when those things happen, you break down and cry like a baby.”

Newcombe is survived by his wife, Karen Newcombe, son Don Newcombe Jr., daughter Kellye Roxanne Newcombe, son Brett Anthony Newcombe, grandchildren Cayman Newcombe and Riann Newcombe and stepson Chris Peterson.

Storied Ridge Model Railroad Club Being Evicted From Longtime Home By John Alexander Brooklyn Eagle

The days are numbered for Bay Ridge’s beloved Model Railroad Club, which for 70 years has entertained children and adults of all ages with its elaborate model train exhibit at 28 Marine Ave. Originally organized in 1946 as the merger of two former model railroad clubs, the Brooklyn Model Railroad, founded in 1932 and the Shore Haven Central founded in 1936, the club — whose sprawling masterpiece is a virtual replica of towns and villages mirroring those along actual train lines that ran across the country open to view for a nominal fee between Thanksgiving and Christmas — now faces a March 31 deadline to pack up and get out. The club — which has been coping, over the past few years, with an aging membership and dwindling volunteers — got its eviction notice on Friday, Feb. 15. The reason for their termination according to the letter addressed to the Model Railroad Club is that “Landlords need to access tenants’ space to make certain repairs to the heat system for the property.” The three members of the club, Arthur Stensholt, Adam Wanio and Hank Angermann, immediately met to try to figure out what can be done with all the railroad equipment on such short notice. Their hope was to find a new home for the trains and continue the legacy of the Bay Ridge Model Railroad Club. According to Stensholt, the club was originally told in a phone call to vacate the premises by summer in order for the building to work on the steam pipes.

“They said they couldn’t get to the pipes because of the train layout,” Stensholt explained. “They needed us to get out so that they could fix the pipes in the proper way.” That changed when Stensholt received the letter from Adam Nagin, assistant vice president of Superior Management Incorporated. “We need a new home for the layout. If we could find a new home for it, where there would be more people and younger people that would like to work on it, then it can be brought back to its original glory and enjoyed by future generations,” noted Stensholt. Stensholt, Wanio and Angermann say they would be willing to continue working with the club and teaching a new generation about the model trains. But it depends on where the elaborate layout is relocated. If someone takes it over and keeps it close by, they would be happy to stay on. Elaborate model train layout. Wanio hopes that whoever takes it over will keep the feel of the original setup. “The top part we could do. We were already getting penalof the layout is sound.

club for 10 years, also recalls seeing the setup as a child. “I came here as a kid myself, brought my son here and I’m lucky my grandkids got to see it,” he said. “We can’t stay here but we are hoping we can find a group that’s willing to take this and set it up somewhere else so that it can have a life continuing.” An interesting side note is that one of the bridges in the display is engraved “1947-Dyker Ridge,” for the year and place the Bay Ridge Model Railroad display was originally begun. The present club was formed in 1947 and incorporated in 1955 as a non-profit organization that presented annual shows that demonstrated in miniature how real railroad lines operated.

NEWSBEAT BAY RIDGE

Neighbors in a building on 71st Street in Bay Ridge are terrified of a problem tenant’s threatening behavior. In one episode, captured on video, the tenant is seen continuously knocking on other tenants’ doors in his underwear late at night. Several weeks later, he allegedly knocked on another neighbor’s door while holding what appears to be a small knife in his hand. Tenant Mike Cullen told CBS News that police arrested the man, identified as Alexander Makarovsky, in January but he was soon released. 

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT A group of club-wielding robbers roughed up a man thought to be a drug-trade rival in an incident that was caught on video on Feb. 2, police said. The 50-year-old victim was sitting on a stoop on Pulaski Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant just after 6:45 p.m. when the men approached him. One of them rushed him with a club and started beating him. Soon, three more men with similar weapons joined in, police said. 

BOROUGH HALL Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams recently joined the Sino-America New York Brooklyn Archway Association in co-hosting a Lunar New York celebration at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The first-place Islanders bid farewell to Barclays Center for the remainder of the regular season following Saturday night’s 5-2 victory over Edmonton. AP Photo by Frank Franklin II keep the government open. “The entire shutdown saga has shown how truly broken our government and politics have become,” he said. “I look forward to the president declaring national emergencies for working people who have been ripped off and screwed over for decades.” Councilmember Steve Levin (D-Williamsburg-Brooklyn HeightsBoerum Hill) rallied on Wednesday outside state offices in Albany in favor of the Home Stability Support bill. The measure, supported by Assemblymember Andrew Hevesi and state Sen. Liz Krueger, would create a new rent supplement for residents who are eligible for public assistance benefits and facing eviction or homelessness because of domestic violence or other conditions. Rep. Nydia Velazquez recently announced $27.3 million in funding for local education centers in her district, which includes several Brooklyn neighborhoods. The federal funding will go toward continuing local Head Start and Early Head Start programs. “Foster Care Unplugged: The Stage Play,” a collaboration between Deus Beni Productions and the Brooklyn-based nonprofit Foster Care Unplugged, tells the story of the emotional hurdles that foster care youth face. Every actor in the play is a current or former foster child. The play opened last week at the Actors Fund Arts Center. 

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS Now that One Clinton, the condo tower that’s rising on the site of the old Brooklyn Heights Library, is rising, developer Hudson Companies is stepping up its efforts to lure buyers. A sales gallery for the project on nearby Remsen Street has recently opened. Inside the gallery, there’s a full-sized model apartment, along with a model of the building that shows its unique triangular shape. 

BUSHWICK The source of last week’s sickening smell on the L train has been traced to the site of a defunct Brooklyn gas station at 2 Bushwick Ave. that was responsible for five chemical spills between 1989 and 2006. Spills affected the local groundwater, and a spill in 2006 seeped into the soil, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. Another spill in 1989, only a month after the first, reportedly dumped 20 gallons of gasoline into the local sewer system. 

CLINTON HILL Earlier this month, Recess, a Clinton Hill-based art space, hosted the Collective Fury zine fair, featuring zines by indigenous artists.

One zine, Indige.Zine, which started as a benefit for Dakota Access Pipeline protests, is a platform for indigenous identity art. Another, unbag, focuses on the relationship between art and politics. The zine fair was part of Recess’ Collective Fury session, a five-week-long series of performances, artworks, workshops and events. 

CROWN HEIGHTS If approved, a planned 1.4-million-square-foot project in Crown Heights could become one of the community’s largestever developments. The site, located just east of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Prospect Park, is known simply as 960 Franklin Ave. and is owned by Bruce Eichner’s Continuum Company and Joel Bergstein’s Lincoln Equities. The owner of a Miami tapas restaurant is moving his Latin- American cuisine into a shuttered bodega at the corner of Nostrand Avenue and Bergen Street. Francisco Anton, born in Venezuela, began cooking 13 years ago. While he does prepare mainstream American fare, Latin fusion is his favorite cuisine to cook, he told Bklyner. 

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN An escaped prisoner was captured in Brooklyn last Friday morning, according to PIX11. The man, whose name was not given, had been taken into custody and Thursday and was being questioned on charges of forcibly touching a minor when he fled through the front door of the Brooklyn Child Abuse Squad on Schermerhorn Street. He was found and taken into custody again early on Friday morning. 

MIDWOOD The state Attorney General’s Office has accused the manager of a Brooklyn residential co-op of scamming elderly residents out of their building shares. Joshua Prottas, managing agent at 1075 Ocean Parkway, allegedly defrauded elderly shareholders by selling seven apartments to the Midwood Coop Group, which he controlled, without their knowledge; and hiding his $100,000 commission by filing forged documents with the state. AG Letitia James plans to seek damages and restitution for the cooperators. 

PARK SLOPE Franny’s Pizza in Park Slope may have closed two years ago, but its former executive chef will resurrect Franny’s popular clam pie at Fausto’s one-night pizza pop-up on March 5. The chef, John Adler, will be teaming up with Fausto’s own chef Erin Shambura, who will oversee antipasti. Fausto, “a Brooklyn restaurant with an Italian soul,” is located at 348 Flatbush Ave.

A solo exhibition of Min Liu’s animations and installations. Curated by Thomas D. Rotenberg, TANGIBLE examines the format of animation/ moving image by exploring the relationship between its digital representation and analog and physical experience. Blurring the boundary between the visible and the tangible, Min Liu offers her unique styles and fresh perspectives on what animation is, and could be. When: Daily through February 28th, Mon-Fri – 9 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sat – Sun: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Made in N.Y. Media Center (30 John Street)

JOHN MONTI: HEARTS AND STEMS

A solo show of sculpture by John Monti. In this exhibition Monti brings the entire gallery space into play

with a profuse installation of wall-mounted sculptures of hearts and flowers. When: Thursdays-Sundays through March 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)

BRIC BIENNIAL: VOLUME III, SOUTH BROOKLYN EDITION This third iteration of the BRIC Biennial presents artists living and working in South Brooklyn, including the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Gowanus, Sunset Park, and Bay Ridge, highlighting the significance of Brooklyn as a place where artists create work and develop their careers.

THE FUTURE MINUS SPACE present the solo exhibition Julian

Dashper: The Future. This is the late artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery and commemorates ten years of his passing. The exhibition will highlight select art works produced during the 1990s and early 2000s. When: Wednesdays-Saturdays through February 16th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Minus Space (16 Main Street, Suite A)

ARCHITECTURE OF MEMORY: CHERYL MOLNAR SOLO The artist’s process begins with documentation: Molnar photographs locations newly traveled and well-known and loved.  These photographs are digitally stitched together, combining landscapes with structures from various "memories." This is the way we experience memories: we confuse the place and time, the structures bleed together, places patched together in our minds the way Molnar collages photographs, like concretized memories.  These are the improbable landscapes of our memory, given physical shape. On view for “The Architecture of Memory” will be recent collaged paintings on panel as well as small-scale editioned work that reveal much of the early stages of her process, much like

“sketches” but done through photographs and digital manipulation. When: Through February 22nd Where: Greenpoint/Arete Venue and Gallery (67 West Street)

UNCANNY TALES This exhibition presents new figurative painting that hybridizes the uncanny with caricature, exaggeration, and invented mythologies. The artists included in this show have discovered new worlds that reveal anxiety, mystery, and eeriness that reflect our current state of political unrest. When: By appointment Where: DUMBO/Agency (20 Jay Street, Suite M14)

METAMORPHOSIS OF FAILURE Rachelle Mozman Solano takes on iconic artist Paul Gauguin by casting him as a self-doubting disappointment in his own biographical story, seeking affirmation from the ambivalent women who he aims to dominate. By putting forth alternative narratives, Collura and Mozman Solano envision women as empowered protagonists of their own storylines. For her film and photography project Metamorphosis of Failure, Mozman Solano takes as a point of departure

the Museum of Modern Art’s 2014 exhibition of Paul Gauguin’s works on paper that he made in the South Pacific toward the end of his life. Mozman Solano was impressed by the mythology perpetuated by the museumography and curation of the exhibition, particularly the narrative about Gauguin’s work based on identity transformation during his immersion in Polynesian culture. Rather than rehashing this account, Mozman Solano instead explores the history of Gauguin’s mixed background (French and Peruvian). The work probes Gauguin’s obsession with racial purity, which she speculates may have stemmed from his multiethnic identity and created a conflicted sense of self. Mozman Solano’s film is based on fantasies of Gauguin’s five-week stay in Panama before his journey to Polynesia. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through February 24th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)

ONLY THE BEST As soon as you walk in, what seems like a particularly melodious cacophony of photographs, gives way to a configuration that takes the spectator through them organically. Each artist’s

unparalleled point of view comes through. Part of this season’s exploration of thematic approaches to collecting, Only The Best highlights new or unexhibited pieces by gallery artists, and takes its name from the wonderful Baron Von Fancy piece that both announces and critiques the exhibition. There are certain qualities particular to photography, and each of these artists is addressing one if not more. Fred Cray uses the photographic materials to confound and to repeat elements. This piece is literally collaged, with a cutout moon placed adjacent to the original print. Both hover over a silhouetted dog. David Brandon Geeting continues his still lifes that look like collages, but aren’t. S.B. Walker’s contribution is a landscape that persists in appearing like something else. These are qualities that make photography particularly enticing, appealing, and different from other art. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through February 28th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden Inc (91 Water Street)

IN PLANE VIEW Showcasing the photographs of Max de Esteban and Doug Fogelson. Doug Fogelson’s ‘Forms and Records’, explores the physicality and science of the photograph, through a formal exploration of objects, and their representation as photograms. He works with objects that either have a link to the natural world, or with outmoded technology such as vinyl records and architectural forms. The exhibition includes seven unique silver gelatin photograms and 6 color, limited edition prints made from color transparency photograms. The photograms are created through a series of carefully considered multiple exposures, with the color work incorporating additive color mixing, and blending of light. When: Wednesdays-Saturdays through March 10th, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Klompching Gallery (89 Water Street)

A SOUND OF LIGHT, APPEARING AROUND THE BEND In this all-encompassing

maze-like installation by Barbara Campisi, LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent ‘walls’, confounding any sense of orientation. The viewers, as they walk inside the piece, complete it through their process of discovery. During performances, dancers wearing lights move through and activate the light-based artwork, creating moving lines of light. When: Thursdays-Sundays through March 16th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Crown Heights/ FiveMyles (558 St. John’s Place)

connection to land and an engagement with contemporary culture.

ENRICO RILEY: NEW WORLD

The paintings are part of an unfolding and evolving cycle that investigates themes of historical and contemporary violence, martyrdom, grief, and the middle passage within a spatial domain. Enrico Riley challenges viewers to decipher and contextualize his work’s fractured narratives. For many Americans, exposure to the plethora of recent media examples of reflexive violence perpetrated on African-Americans has blurred the boundaries between the historical record with which our country is so familiar and the problems still facing contemporary culture today. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 11 a.m.

– 6 p.m. Where: Prospect Park/Jenkins Johnson Projects (207 Ocean Avenue)

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY For two years, Brooklyn-based 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)

FRIDA KAHLO: APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s unique and immediately recognizable style was an integral part of her identity. Kahlo came to define herself through her

WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS

What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into cloying sweetness and the faint sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s painful and hard, but also carries the potential for profound transformation. When WAWere Strangers is the first part of a lifelong project deconstructing love through the prism of our relationship. This first chapter is a love poem of sorts, one that charts what happens when two people attempt to become something more and less than that, when we are more unknown stranger to each other than anything else. But love is an ouroboros that eats the past that came before it. Who was I before you? We are interested in the frayed edges, the messy intersections, the elements of ourselves lost and new facets gained in the process, and the limits to all of that. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 22nd, 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/United Photo Industries (16 Main Street)

SOPHIA SHALMIYEV: MOTHER WINTER

KIDS WEEK BROOKLYN: BIRDS OF PREY

Mother Winter is the story of Sophia’s emotional journeys as an immigrant, an artist, and a woman raised without her mother. Born to a Russian mother and an Azerbaijani father, Shalmiyev grew up under the stark oppressiveness of 1980s Leningrad. An imbalance of power and widespread anti-Semitism in her homeland led her father to steal Shalmiyev away, emigrating to America and abandoning her estranged and alcoholic mother, Elena. At age 11, Shalmiyev found herself on a plane headed west, motherless and terrified of the new world unfolding before her. Mother Winter depicts in urgent vignettes Sophia’s years of travel, searching, and forging meaningful connection with the worlds she occupies. The result is a searing meditation on motherhood, displacement, gender politics, and the pursuit of

Five Fab Spots to See in Landmarked Prospect Park South Developer Dean Alvord Invented the Neighborhood By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Viva Las Victorians. Did you know America’s largest concentration of Victorian houses can be found in Flatbush? They’re in a cluster of mini-neighborhoods, one of which is Prospect Park South. What a picturesque place. Right before the turn of the 20th century, Dean Alvord bought 50 acres of land from the Dutch Reformed Church and an old-line Brooklyn family, the Bergens. He turned this tierra into Prospect Park South. According to the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1979 designation report about the Prospect Park South Historic District, Alvord wanted to incorporate “rural beauty” into the city blocks of the neighborhood he was creating. Alvord was born in Syracuse and developed several neighborhoods in Rochester before moving to Brooklyn. The stand-alone houses he and other builders constructed in Prospect Park South epitomize gracious suburban living — though they’re located deep in the heart of busy Brooklyn. Most of the homes have lots of bedrooms. And pretty porches for enjoying the soft spring air. And lush, landscaped lawns. And driveways and garages. One great way to savor the sights of this Instagram-worthy corner of Victorian Flatbush is to walk up and down every street in the landmarked district. It’s not very big. Its boundaries are Church Avenue, Buckingham Road, Beverley Road and Stratford Road. We picked out five fab spots to look for on your stroll. We could have picked out 50 spots — and that wouldn’t begin to cover the neighborhood’s architectural eye candy.

Which Way to the Japanese House? Such a pretty pair, these two. They’re situated on the shortest street in the Prospect Park South Historic District — Buckingham Road.

On one side of the street, there’s a grand, oldfashioned mansion with two-story Ionic columns flanking the front door. On the other side of the street, there’s the beloved Japanese House, as it’s nicknamed. The mansion with the columns, which is 104 Buckingham Road, was designed in 1901 by an architect on Alvord’s staff named Carroll H. Pratt. The last time the house was sold, which was 2008, the price was $1.85 million, city Finance Department records show. The wood and stucco Japanese House, at 131 Buckingham Road, resembles a pagoda. Alvord had the unusual house designed as a three-dimensional advertising tool to promote the neighborhood. It was featured in a 1903 ad in a magazine called Country Life in America. Architecture firm Kirby, Petit & Green designed the house. An often-repeated story about the house is that it was built for the Japanese Ambassador of that era — but that’s an urban myth, a 2014 posting on Untapped Cities’ website says.

On one side of the street, there’s a wooden Swiss chalet. Or, more precisely, 100 Rugby Road is Petit’s architectural interpretation of a chalet that’s on a flat lawn on a city street instead of in an Alpine meadow. He designed the house for Alvord. On the other side of the street, there’s hand-

some 101 Rugby Road. It has a big, round front porch and a circular turret with a row of windows on its second floor. The top of the turret looks kinda like it’s wearing a crown.

A Marvelous Marlborough Road Trio We’ve never seen any other house that looks quite like lemon-hued 215 Marlborough Road. Prospect Park South’s developer would love to hear an observation like that if he were alive. Alvord wanted all the houses in Prospect Park South to look unique and special. The concept of cookie-cutter homes was anathema to him. John J. Petit designed French Gothic Revivalstyle 215 Marlborough Road for Alvord in 1901, the designation report about the Prospect Park South Historic District says. Petit was of course a partner in the firm that designed the Japanese House. The house at 215 Marlborough Road is part of a terrific trio of eye-pleasing homes. The home next to it, 203 Marlborough Road, is painted deep green. By the way, Petit designed this house, too. This house changed hands in a 2015 estate sale. The price was $2.03 million, Finance Department records indicate. The third house in the trio, 197 Marlborough Road, is partly painted a blue hue. The bottom floor of the house is made of red bricks. The turret on one corner of the property is very photogenic.

Another spot that shows off the historic district’s eye-pleasing architectural variety is in the middle of Rugby Road.

Eye on Prospect park south Five Fab Spots to See in Landmarked Prospect Park S. — Continued from page 13INB — The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report says 101 Rugby Road “is among the most romantic houses in Prospect Park South.” John E. Nitchie — an architect whose name is new to us — designed this house in 1900.

The house at 1305 Albemarle Road is one of the Prospect Park South Historic District's great sights. This is 131 Buckingham Road, whose nickname is the Japanese House. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

The Argyle and Albemarle Intersection

We didn’t pick out a preponderance of Petit’s designs on purpose for this list of dandy eye candy. We took photos in Prospect Park South first, then looked up historic-house info afterwards. It turns out that Petit designed another house we want you to see.

VA Benefits

It’s at 1306 Albemarle Road, on the corner of Argyle Road. The Colonial Revival-style home has a curvy front porch topped by a turret that wears a witch’s hat. Right across the street, there’s another iconic house, 1305 Albemarle Road. The architect who designed it was H.B. Moore. It was built in 1905. It’s got grand, two-story pillars at the front door and porches on its first and second floors. An architect bought 1305 Albemarle Road for $2.75 million in 2017, Finance Department records show. He has done beautiful exterior restoration work on the house. “Reversal of Fortune” was filmed in this house. That’s the movie that stars Jeremy Irons as Claus von Bulow, who was tried for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny von Bulow. Irons won an Oscar for this role.

Realtor

You might get so wrapped up in the neighborhood’s northand-south-running streets that you forget to stroll along east-andwest-running Beverley Road on the edge of the historic district. Don’t make that mistake. You’ll miss intriguing-looking 1205 Beverley Road. It’s in the middle of the block between Argyle and Westminster roads. This house has a skinny tower rising up on one corner of it and porches stacked on top of one another on another corner. Developer George T. Moore hired architect Henry A. Stunek to design the house in 1899, the Prospect Park South Historic District’s designation report says.

OBITUARIES

+++

BEALE, John “Johnny” -84 years old, lifelong resident of Bay Ridge, and proud patriot and U.S. Navy veteran (member of American Legion Post 157), suddenly passed away on Feb.16, 2019. Johnny was a devoted husband to Alice “Alaree” for over 62 years. Dad was a loving father and in-law to John and Lisa, Donald and Elena, Father Kenneth, and Marypat and John. Pobby was a proud grandfather to Erin, Brendan, Patrick, Kieran, Aidan, Liam, Owen, John, Kimberly and Courtney and was blessed with numerous great cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and his sisters-in-law, Lorraine and Maureen. Johnny was preceded in death by his parents Edward and Kathleen and his brothers Edward and Michael and sisters

Collie and Frannie. John was a proud and faith-filled Roman Catholic who was baptized and spiritually nurtured at the Basilica of OLPH. Dad’s favorite words of advice, especially in times of distress, were, “God is Good — All the Time. All the Time —God is Good!” The family will receive friends on Feb.24 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Clavin Funeral Home, 7722 Fourth Ave., and invites you to celebrate his life at a Mass of Resurrection at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 529 59th Street, on Feb. 25 at 9:30 a.m. (military honors immediately after Mass). Burial will take place at Calverton National Cemetery on Long Island. The family would like to express thanks to the EMTs and to the wonderful help and care given by NYU Langone Medical Center. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project (woundedwarriorproject.org) or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (stjude.org). “Home is where your story begins and where your heart always stays.”

Pet Adoption Corner

Sean Casey Animal Rescue has shared these photos of pets up for adoption with us. Simon is a six-year-old Bull Terrier. Simon needs time to get to know people, but once he knows you he will show you his sweet and playful side. Simon would need a home with large dog/Bull Terrier experience. Julia is a beautiful, petite three-year-old Domestic Shorthair. Julia was found dumped with her kittens in a park in Fort Greene. A nice family walking their dog found them and brought them to Sean Casey. Her kittens have all been adopted and now she is waiting for a home to call her own. Julia is the sweetest girl and would make a great addition to your family! Sean Casey Animal Rescue (718-436-5163) is located at 153 East Third St. Photos courtesy of Sean Casey Animal Rescue

Josephine Augello, President 5015 New Utrecht Ave. Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 20, 1927

ON FEB. 20, 1927, the Eagle reported, “Brooklyn residents will celebrate Washington’s birthday Tuesday, Feb. 22 by attending many functions here and in Manhattan. Dances, dinners, commemorative masses, motion pictures, speechmaking, special theatrical performances, a radio address by President [Calvin] Coolidge and the famous annual parade by Brooklyn’s old-time firemen will feature the day. Just so long as one vamp survives, the old Kings County Volunteer Firemen’s Association will continue to hold its annual Washington’s Birthday parade, says Boro President James J. Byrne in announcing plans for Tuesday’s event. Governor [Al] Smith will be in the reviewing stand at Boro Hall when the veteran fire fighters, thinner in ranks but dauntless in spirit, pass by at 11 o’clock. Later the governor will attend William H. Todd’s luncheon to the marchers at the Hotel Bossert. Since the volunteer firemen disbanded in 1869, they have paraded in Brooklyn on Washington’s birthday. Each year, those who view the parade miss a familiar face.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 22, 1916

ON FEB. 22, 1861, the Eagle reported, “Philadelphia, Feb 22 — The celebration of Washington’s birthday began at daylight by salutes being fired off in different parts of the city … The ceremony of raising the flag of 34 stars over the Hall of Independence this morning, by Mr. Lincoln, was attended with all the solemnity due such an occasion, the scene being an impressive one. At the rising of the sun, crowds of people streamed from all parts of the city towards the State House, and very soon every inch of ground was occupied, a vast number of ladies being present. The weather was cool and bracing. At 7 o’clock, Mr. Lincoln was escorted to the Hall, and there received by [Rev.] Theodore Cuyler, who warmly welcomed him to its venerable walls in the hour of national peril and distress, when the great work achieved by the wisdom and patriotism of our fathers seemed threatened with instant ruin.”  ON FEB 22, 1916, the Eagle reported, “The Colonial dance of the Entre Nous Club, held last night in the clubhouse, 489 Bedford Avenue, in celebration of Washington’s birthday, was one of the artistic and social successes of the season in the Eastern District. It was a costume dance, the young women appearing in gowns designed on the lines of the garb of Colonial belles. The decorations of the club were in harmony with the general scheme. The evening began with a reception, following which there was a promenade concert by a string orchestra. After the grand march, the dancing was begun and many of the younger set had their first taste of the cotillions and square dances of the old Revolutionary days. The effect was remarkable and was generally conceded to be one of the most strikingly original dances of the year.”

For Laughing Out Loud • What did the Dalmatian say after lunch? That hit the spot. • How do you stop an astronaut’s baby from crying? You rocket! • I like having conversations with kids. Grownups never ask me what my third favorite reptile is. • At what age is it appropriate to tell my dog that he’s adopted? • She wanted a puppy. But I didn’t want a puppy. So we comprised and got a puppy.

Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn Releases Names of Clergy Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse The Diocese of Brooklyn last Friday released its list of clergy who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor. The document was released the day before the Vatican’s announcement that Theodore McCarrick, former cardinal and archbishop of Washington, D.C., had been laicized and defrocked after disclosures became public about his sexual improprieties with seminarians and young priests over a period of time. Laicization is the act of removing someone from the status of clergy. Defrocking is the rescinding of a former clergyperson’s right to function in ordained ministry. The Brooklyn Diocese’s list of Feb. 15 was one of many that were released by Roman Catholic dioceses and archdioceses across the United States. These diocesan actions herald a Vatican observance taking place on Feb. 21 that is meant to protect children. Diocesan officials define “credible allegations” in this matter by their belief that the accusations may be true. The comprehensive list spans the 166-year history of the diocese. The fact that this list contains the names of clergy who are deceased differentiates it from similar lists by other dioceses. This list, which can be found on the diocesan website, www.dioceseofbrooklyn.org, contains names of clergy who have been convicted, who have admitted to sexual misconduct with a minor or who have had allegations that were determined credible by the Independent Diocesan Review Board. The list is categorized into two sections: Clergy Members of the Diocese of Brooklyn with Credible Allegations (67); Diocese of Brooklyn Clergy who were Deceased/or Resigned prior to a finding of credibility (41). “We know this list will generate many emotions for victims who have suffered terribly. For their suffering, I am truly sorry,” said the Bishop of Brooklyn, the Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio. “I have met with many victims who have told me that more than anything, they want an acknowledgment of what was done to them. This list gives that recognition and I hope it will add another layer of healing for them on their journey toward wholeness.” The Brooklyn Diocese’s list shows that the number of incidents of clergy sexual abuse peaked in the 1960s and 1970s, but the reports largely came in post-2002 after the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People was enacted. The number of incidents peaked again in 2017 (illustrated in a graph also viewable on the website) when the diocese started the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program (IRCP).

This program is administered independently by Kenneth Feinberg, whose firm handled the 9-11 Compensation Fund. The IRCP is another possible mechanism for healing that may help bring closure to victims/survivors of clergy sexual abuse. Other key points about the list are illustrated in other graphs on the diocesan website: • The 108 names represent under five percent of clergy in the Diocese of Brooklyn; • About two-thirds of accused priests on the list are deceased; • The vast majority of cases on the list involved priests who were ordained between 1930 and 1979. DiMarzio committed to releasing the list at regional meetings he held with the lay faithful late last year where he answered parishioners’ questions about the sex abuse crisis. In those meetings, the diocese outlined the numerous programs mandated by the charter, including, but not limited to, a zero tolerance policy in which any clergy member credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor is permanently

Forum Examines Handling of Family Discord Over Divergent Political, Social Views How can politically polarized families break bread together? This dilemma is one of the topics being addressed as part of the Brooklyn Oratory’s “Difficult Question Series.” The next program takes place this Sunday, Feb. 24, with the focus on “The Church in the Era of Trump. How do we reconcile friendships and family who don’t share the same views?” Dr. Eleanor Sauers will facilitate a discussion on how to navigate difficult conversation when family and friends hold divergent views in a time of social discord. Sauers holds a doctorate in religious education and pastoral ministry from Fordham

University, where her focus was on the ecclesiological implications of transitions in parish life in the United States. Trained in spiritual direction through the Murphy Center for Ignatian Spirituality at Fairfield University, Sauers has recently been appointed parish life coordinator at St. Anthony Parish in Fairfield, where she has served as the director of religious education and pastoral minister since 2002. Her program begins at 7:15 p.m., in the oratory’s Newman Hall, following the 6 p.m. Mass at St. Boniface Church, Duffield Street in MetroTech.

removed from ministry. Since 2002, the Diocese of Brooklyn has shared all of its files and allegations against clergy with the district attorneys of Brooklyn and Queens. In 2004, his first year as Brooklyn’s diocesan bishop, DiMarzio established an Independent Reporting Line for anyone to report allegations

of abuse. That phone number is 1-888-6344499. All reports generated are immediately reported to the Brooklyn or Queens district attorney. The diocese’s Office of Victim Assistance provides referrals for therapy, support groups for survivors and a yearly Healing Mass to pray for all who have been impacted by sexual abuse.

Bishop Kearney Became Youngest Prelate in Brooklyn Diocese By Francesca Norsen Tate

The Brooklyn Eagle of Monday, February 25, 1935 gave extensive coverage to the consecration of Msgr. Raymond Augustine Kearney as auxiliary bishop for the Diocese of Brooklyn. His consecration at the Redemptorist order’s church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help, on that Monday made him the youngest priest at that time to become a bishop. A procession taking up the full block bordered by Fifth and Sixth avenues, and 59th to 60th streets, drew a crowd of more than 1,000. Schoolchildren given the holiday on this occasion for the procession and consecration lined the street waving colorful flags. The detailed story named the dignitaries, including former New York Governor Al Smith and his wife, Supreme Court justices, the postmaster, federal attorneys and other politicians. Smith was a practicing Catholic. Two family members — one inside and the other outside — had different roles at the ordination. NYPD Deputy Chief Inspector Bracken (no first name provided) was in charge of the police complement organizing the crowds, with 150 patrolmen and 10 mounted men under his command. His brother, the Rev. Lawrence Bracken, was in charge

of the diocesan choir. For all its celebration and pageantry, the service also had a somber and urgent note. The Rev. Dr. J.H. Ryan, rector of Catholic University, as the homilist, warned of a new threat to the moral order: the totalitarian state. As the mid 1930s were witnessing Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, Ryan quoted from Biblical prophet Ezekiel: “I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel.” He said, “A new, powerful and conquering enemy threatens Christ’s church in our day — it is an enemy not in the fields of morals or doctrine, but of politics. It is the enemy of extreme nationalism against which our gloriously reigning [Pope] Pius XI has, on more than one occasion, warned the world.” Ryan continued his warning, explaining that in nationalism and totalitarianism, the state replaces God. “The supreme will is the will of the state; the citizen must also think as the state thinks, must feel as the state feels. And to that end, the state will use every power it possesses, especially the school, to bring up a generation to acknowledge itself as the totality of human thought and aspiration.” Ryan asked if the church had perceived all the consequences of this development.

BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE FEB. 21, 1885 [By Associated Press] Washington, February 21 — With the mercury down to almost zero, and with a northerly breeze which bore stinging suggestions of its Arctic origin, the sprinkling of ticket bearers who began to fill up the seats of the grand stand at the base of the Washington Monument at 10 o’clock this morning did not appear to be bent upon pleasure, but with their upturned collars, muffled chins and quick, nervous movements, they seemed as if inspired by a stern sense of duty alone. A rough board shed bedecked with bunting opened upon a snow covered field. The first distinguished arrival was an old gentleman with long white hair whose firm clear cut features betrayed a possible relationship to the Father of his Country. “Ticket, sir.” “I am one of the Washington kindred, but I will show my ticket.” It was Ebenezer Burgess Ball, of Louden County, Va. “My grandmother,” he said to a reporter, “was George Washington’s niece. My Grandfather Ball was of the Image from the original Eagle, Feb. 21, 1885 family of George Washington’s mother, 6 • Brooklyn Eagle • Thursday, February 21, 2019

Mary Ball.” The military arrived betimes —the brass bands were marshalled to their places; the troops came to a rest. Senator [John] Sherman, the chairman of the Joint Congressional Commission, from the central stand, at eleven o’clock, called about 800 people to order and said something about people keeping their hats on. Senator

Sherman referred to the dignity of the occasion and briefly sketched the order of exercises. The marine band played. Prayer was offered by Mr. Tuter, of Christ Church, Alexandria, Va.; and Dr. J.C. Welling, president of the Columbia University, read the address prepared by Mr. W.W. Corcoran, to whom had been assigned the honor of representing the part taken

in the initiation of the project of construction of the monument by the Washington Monument Society, of which he is the first vice president. President [Chester A.] Arthur was greeted with rounds of hearty cheers. He read his remarks from manuscript in a clear, strong voice to which the audience listened more eagerly than to the words of any other speaker.

President Chester A. Arthur’s Address at the Dedication Ceremony Fellow Countrymen — Before the dawn of the century whose eventful years will soon have faded into the past — when death had but lately robbed this republic of its most beloved and illustrious citizen — the Congress of the United States pledged the faith of the nation that in this city bearing his honored name, and then, as now, the seat of the general government, a monument should be erected to commemorate the great events of his military and political life. The stately column that stretches heavenward from the plain whereon we stand bears witness to all who behold it, that the covenant which our fathers made their children have fulfilled. In the completion of this great work of patriotic endeavor there is abundant cause for national rejoicing, for while this structure shall endure it shall be to all mankind a steadfast token of the affectional and reverent regard in which this people continue to hold the memory of Washington. Well may he ever keep the foremost place in the hearts of his countrymen.

The faith that never faltered; the wisdom that was broader and deeper than any learning taught in schools; the courage that shrank from no peril and was dismayed by no defeat; the loyalty that kept all selfish purpose subordinate to the demands of patriotism and honor; the sagacity that displayed itself in camp and cabinet alike, and above all that harmonious union of moral and intellectual qualities which has never found its parallel among men. These are the attributes of character which the intelligent thought of this century ascribes to the grandest figure of the last. But other and more eloquent lips than mine will today rehearse to you the story of his noble life and its glorious achievements. To myself had been assigned a simpler and more formal duty, in fulfillment of which I do now, as President of the United States and in behalf of the people, receive this monument from the hands of its builder and declare it dedicated from this time forth to the immortal name and memory of George Washington.
