&DUSH that GLHP, for heaven’s sake. One of these days you’re going to wake up and it will be winter. It won’t be nearly as much fun to spend the day in Instagram-worthy Brooklyn Bridge Park. Go now — while you still can stroll the scenic shoreline greenspace without wearing snow boots. It’s an ideal place to unplug from the stresses of everyday life for a few hours. Moreover, it’s possible that the eastern edge of Brooklyn Bridge Park will get torn up to build a temporary highway for use during Brooklyn-Queens Expressway repairs. The Brooklyn Heights Association has proposed this measure as an alternative to demolishing the Promenade and constructing a temporary six-lane highway to reroute BQE traffic.

Empire Stores complex still have tables set up outdoors for open-air meals, which is another reason to seize the day. There’s ice cream, too, which seems like a smart thing to eat before winter sets in. You can get it at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, a 1920s-era former fireboat house next to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 1. This pier, where the NYC Ferry dock is located, is a hot spot to snap photos of the Lower Manhattan skyline. As you stroll along the shoreline from pier to pier, you’ll notice that the leaves on hardly any of the trees have changed colors. It doesn’t really look like fall has arrived. &RQWLQXHGRQSDJH



Iconic Views of Brooklyn Bridge And the World Trade Center For now, before Arctic winds whip through Brooklyn, or the city Department of Transportation sends in the bulldozers, you can head for the park’s pebbly beach and snap selfies alongside the tourists. The Brooklyn Bridge, Jane’s Carousel and the iconic World Trade Center will serve as a backdrop for your photos. Don’t be surprised if you wind up standing elbow-to-elbow with models doing a fashion shoot or two. The waterfront restaurants at the historic

Be sure to extend your stroll to Pier 3, which recently opened to the public. Its garden is an especially good place to read, relax and reflect — in both senses of the word. There’s a leafy labyrinth with a collection of mirrors in the middle of it. Narcissus would be mesmerized. If you position yourself just right, you can see the scenery

Further down the shoreline, inviting blue umbrellas line the Picnic Peninsula. Some of the flowering plants on nearby Pier 6 are still blooming.

Suspects in Brooklyn Heights Swastika Spree Arrested BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — NYPD announced on Monday that officers have arrested two young men who are accused of drawing swastikas on garage doors on Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights last week. The suspects were identified as Jarrick Wiltshire, 18, and Daul Moultrie, 17. The two have each been charged with three counts of aggravated harassment for the alleged hate crime, according to CBSNewYork. The incident is one of several suspected hate crimes in Brooklyn during the same week, CBSNewYork reported. Another defendant, James Polite, has been charged with writing graffiti such as “Kill the Jews” and “Hitler” inside the Union Temple on Eastern Parkway as well as setting fires in the Jewish area of Williamsburg.

Voters Locked Out of Polling Station At Canarsie Community Center CANARSIE — FDNY firefighters had to be called to pry open a locked polling station in Canarsie on Tuesday. Neighborhood resident Jalessa Parris posted two videos to twitter showing firefighters using heavy-duty tools to pry open the doors of the Breukelen Community Center at 715 E. 105th St., according to 4NewYork. She said that

when she got to the polls at 8 a.m., people were already leaving out of frustration. Firefighters first opened the doors at 6:30 a.m., but it proved to be to the wrong entrance. Shortly after 8 a.m., someone showed up with the key to the right entrance. “It doesn’t make sense that one person had one key to open up this community center,” she told 4NewYork.

Accused Drug Lord `El Chapo’ to Travel Twice Weekly Across Brooklyn Bridge DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Accused drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will be moved twice every week during his drug trafficking trial in Brooklyn — on Mondays from the Metropolitan Correctional Center to Brooklyn’s federal court and on Fridays back to the MCC. Police officials are concerned that he could be assassinated by representatives of other gangs, according to the New York Post. They also fear that he might try to escape, since he has escaped twice from Mexican prisons. Guzman’s Sinaloa Cartel has allegedly funneled more than 200 tons of narcotics into the U.S. He’s also hired hitmen to kill witnesses and rivals, the New York Post said. Guzman will travel with a police escort along the Brooklyn Bridge, which will be briefly closed to pedestrians and vehicles during that time, the Post reported. The trial is expected to last as long as four months.


CITYWIDE — In a boon for researchers and amateur historians, the NYC Department of Records and Information Services has made available online 720,000 digitized images from its 1940 tax photo collection. Beginning in 1939, city traversed the five boroughs to document every single structure for tax purposes, according to Brownstoner. While these photos have long been available to

researchers, in the past people had to visit the Municipal Archives in Lower Manhattan and try to find their building using reels of microfilm. While users still need to know their building’s block and lot number, they can easily do so because the system portal has a link to NYCityMap site for easy lookup.

1940 NYC Historical Photos Now Made Available Online

WILLIAMSBURG — A Williamsburg café owner who closed his restaurant temporarily in September after a digital campaign accused him of being a white supremacist has now shuttered it permanently because of what the owner considers a campaign of organized threats. The Sands Café on Grand Street originally went dark a day after blogger Colin Hagendorf tweeted that owner Guy Sands is a member of the Proud Boy and “used to have an active alt-right twitter [account],” according to the New York Post. The tweet cited a 2016 Vanity Fair article that reported Sands attended a party thrown by farright columnist Milo Yiannopoulos. Sands, a registered Republican from Greenpoint, has denied any links to the Proud Boys or other alt-right groups, the Post reported.

Cops Seek Teens Who Threw Pipe Through Synagogue Window WILLIAMSBURG — In the latest in a series of acts of anti-Semitic vandalism in Brooklyn, a group of teens were caught on video throwing a metal pipe through a window at a synagogue in Williamsburg. The suspects, several of whom were wearing orange, broke a window at the Wokan synagogue at Franklin Avenue near Myrtle Avenue about 5:40 p.m. on Saturday, then ran, according to the Daily News.

The vandalism came a day after James Polite, a recent college graduate with a history of mental illness and drug addiction, was nabbed by police and charged with entering the Union Temple near Grand Army Plaza and writing graffiti such as “Die Jew Rats” and “Hitler” on the walls on Thursday, the News reported. Polite was also charged with setting several fires in the Hasidic Jewish area of Williamsburg on Friday.

Accused Pipe Bomber Has Family Ties To Famed Sheepshead Bay Restaurant SHEEPSHEAD BAY — Cesar Sayoc, the suspect accused of sending pipe bombs to well-known Democratic officials, their supporters and CNN, reportedly is related through his mother to the family that owns Randazzo’s Clam Bar on Emmons Avenue in Sheepshead Bay. One of Sayoc’s Brooklyn relatives, who was not identified by name, told the Daily News that Sayoc “did not come off as the type of person who would ever hurt somebody or send bombs.” Nevertheless, the same relative

recalled Sayoc as struggling with mental illness and living a bizarre and eccentric lifestyle. Sayoc was born in Brooklyn in 1963 but moved to Florida after his father, a Filipino immigrant, abandoned the family, the News reported. The accused bomber “wasn’t really on the same page with us,” the relative continued, adding that the family had tried to get him help many times. Sayoc had used both his mother’s maiden name, Altieri, and the Randazzo name on Facebook.

Ice Cream Shop Plans to Serve Icy Drinks Made With Wine, Beer DUMBO — Just when you think you’ve heard it all, Brooklyn foodies will now be drinking ice cream floats made with organic wine and local beer. The alcohol-laden treats will soon be available at Oddfellows Ice Cream Company’s new location at 60 Water St., which opened last month. The New York State Liquor Authority has not yet acted on Oddfellows’ request for a liquor license, according to Patch. In the meantime, Oddfellows is serving 12 flavors of ice cream and sorbet, including yuzu pineapple green peppercorn, pumpkin spice and olive oil strawberry, Patch says. Oddfellows opened its original store in Williamsburg in 2013.

Bushwick Bar to Install Winter Sauna, Bar in Backyard BUSHWICK — A Bushwick bar called Nowadays isn’t shutting down its backyard tables and chairs for the winter. Instead, it’s installing a winter wonderland consisting of a large yurt, an enclosed bar serving hot cocktails and a sauna. Justin Carter, owner and resident DJ at Nowadays, told Metro New York that “it feels silly to go into hibernation.” He added that having

a backyard sauna has been a personal ambition of his, since he likes to go to Spa Castle in Queens and the Russian and Turkish Baths in the East Village. The sauna Carter will be using is the HotBox Mobile Sauna, which has traveled to all five boroughs, Metro says. It fits up to about 10 people at a time and heats up to 180 degrees.

Socceroof in Sunset Park Officially Opens By Jaime DeJesus INBrooklyn

It’s goal in Sunset Park! The neighborhood’s newest sporting facility, Socceroof, celebrated its official grand opening on Wednesday, November 1. The event, held at Socceroof’s brand new space at the Whale Building, 14 53rd Street, featured a cocktail party and plenty of surprises for lucky guests. General Manager of the spacious facility Jonathan Lupinelli discussed how the dream came to fruition. According to Lupinelli, the idea for the facility, “came from the minds of two French entrepreneurs, Jean-David Tartour and Jerome Meary.” It was Tartour, Lupinelli said, who started the business in France 10 years ago, growing it to 29 locations before crossing the Atlantic for the company’s U.S. debut, right in Sunset Park. “This is our flagship,” he told this paper. “Our first facility is here in New York because we wanted to start in the main city in the United States. We found an amazing space that goes beyond soccer. We have the view of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty. This is a place where the soccer community can mingle, and it goes beyond being just a soccer field.” The 70,000-square-foot space includes 10 fields named after Brooklyn neighborhoods, such as Sunset Park, Bay Ridge and Red Hook; changing rooms; a high-end sports bar; multiple bigscreen TVs and a rooftop with unobstructed panoramic waterfront views of Manhattan. The theme is set at the facility’s entrance, where the walls are filled with a display of international soccer jerseys. While the company scouted a variety of locations, Lupinelli said that Sunset Park offered the best opportunities for the group. “Brooklyn was attractive because the community is very responsive to soccer. This space was the perfect fit and we couldn’t imagine a better location to get started,” he said, mentioning the diversity of the neighborhood. “That’s definitely one of the reasons we decided to start here. Sunset Park is an extremely diverse neighborhood with a huge passion for soccer.” The project began over a year ago. Construction took almost six months. “Our soft opening was on September 4,” Lupinelli said. “We’ve organized a lot of events, tournaments, and we’ve brought the soccer community to check out the space, but tonight is the big launch. The real adventure starts tonight.” The reception thus far has been very positive. “This is an incredible feeling after months and months of hard

Kids on a soccer field at Socceroof. work,” Lupinelli said. “We’ve been open for two months and really feel supported. We feel there’s a great interest and demand for our space. To have the official opening tonight is an incredible feeling.” Lupinelli started playing soccer when he was four years old. He went on to play professionally in Spain and France before coming to the United States where he went to school and worked for Major League Soccer in New York. “That’s when the two owners reconnected with me. One of them was my agent when I was a player,” he said. “It was just a perfect match and I was hired as general manager of the facility.” Lupinelli said he was excited to give the borough a facility it hasn’t seen before and make the sport of soccer more accessible

for everyone, including kids. “We are open to everyone,” he said. “I think the main objective of this facility is to offer easy access for everyone in the community and New York City in general. “Especially in the winter,” he said, “it’s very difficult to find a place to play and I think with this we’ve brought something that is necessary in New York. “The goal of this place is to bring everyone together from professionals to people who don’t know soccer that well but want to learn and exercise,” Lupinelli went on. “People can rent a field for just an hour, come with a group of friends, parents can bring their kids, have a good time, and enjoy playing the game. There are a lot of possibilities.” For more information, visit

Council Members analyzed how concepts of “us” and “them” lead to stereotypes of immigrants and considered how race and immigration have intersected differently across eras. They sought to strike a delicate balance between the range of immigrant experiences across time, culture, and individual life trajectories.

Theatre Marinefor Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Optical Sets its Sight on Bay Ridge

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.

Mitch Nagib is a man with a mission. He’s been wearing glasses since he was seven years Photos by Jarrett Scott old and decided that he would devote his career to helping people find the perfect eyewear to make them feel the most comfortable and attractive. “When I got my first pair of eyeglasses it was State. Sen. Marty Golden presents Mitch Nagib with a proclamation upon the grand opening of Marine Optical. Pictures with family EBrooklyn Media photos by Amanda Innace the first time I could actually see,” he told this and friends. paper. “I remember sitting in the eye doctor’s office on Kings Highway and the moment he put the glasses on me, I could actually see across the street.” That episode changed Mitch’s life as he became fascinated with learning about vision and decided he wanted to help people acclimate themselves to wearing glasses. “It became interesting to me how a little piece of glass could literally change the outlook of your world,” he 14INB • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of June 14-20, 2018 said. Mitch’s belief was that if a person removes his or her glasses, it changes that person’s perception of the world. As a result, at Marine Optical, a new store he recently opened at 9714 Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Nagib wants to make eyewear an asset, both in fashion and function ability. “Not being able to see is a handicap,” said Nagib. “It can prevent you from driving or reading; it can prevent you from doing anything. And we turn that disability into something fashionable.” He cites his mother as an example. “Before I opened my store, they charged her $1,600 for Congressional candidate Max Rose attends the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Marine Optical. her glasses. She has very bad eyesight. So she had what they call Coke-bottle lenses. The lenses they gave her were extremely thick and unattractive. So she refused to wear her glasses.” Mitch wanted to remedy this and took it upon himself to create sleeker and more attractive eyewear for her. “I was able to get the lenses to be the same thickness as the frame,” he said. “We can do that. A lot of stores won’t do that because it costs too much and they demand an upcharge. I don’t really care; I just want people to be happy with their eyeglasses. I know that if people are happy they will keep returning and bring their friends.” With his goal of wanting to help remedy people’s reluctance to wear unfashionable eyewear, Marine Optical is a dream come true for him. It is currently using an accredited lab with licensed technicians crafting diamond-cut, stateof-the-art digital lenses. Marine Optical also does contact lenses and what Mitch calls, “a lot of cool stuff.” People would come to him and ask him to fix their sunglasses, so he started making custom sunglass lenses, including custom tints. “Recently, I had a woman come in who had a pair of Ray-Bans with a pink tint that she really loved,” he said. We were able to put in the same color-mirror tint with prescription lenses. Nobody else does that.” Nagib is no stranger to the community. He was born and raised in the neighborhood, went to P.S. 104 and Fort Hamilton High School, and graduated from the College of Staten Island. He has lived his whole life in Bay Ridge. For anyone looking for the perfect eyewear, Marine Optical is certainly a sight for sore eyes. It digitally cuts all lenses, and offers customizable repairing, replacements for eyeglasses and sunglasses, and a price match guarantee. Marine also offers free lifetime repairs on all purchases.

Atta-Boy, Giamboi: LET US TELL YOUR STORY Columbian Lawyers Remember We can even reach backseat multi-taskers Justice Joseph Giamboi BY ROB ABRUZZESE ROB@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM


oseph Giamboi, former New York state Supreme Court Justice and one of the early founders of the Columbian Lawyers Association, died on Sept. 27. Mass was held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Thursday, Oct. 4 and Vito Cannavo, past president of the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn, also shared a few words about the judge at a recent meeting. “His wake was truly a sad occasion,” Cannavo said. “He lived a full and distinguished life of public service.” Cannavo remembered the judge, who most recently served in the Bronx after he took senior status, as a fair judge, who made people feel happy with his positive attitude — and his red Cadillac. “He was a decent and kind man, a generous guy who was happy when he made you happy,” Cannavo said. “There was always a smile on his face and a word of encouragement for anyone who greeted him. He had a great sense of humor. He was always smiling, laughing. He was a dapper dresser. You didn’t live until you took a ride with him in his big red Cadillac, flying along on the roads.” Giamboi, who was born in 1925, went to New York Law School prior to being admitted to the NYS Bar in 1955. He served as a Supreme Court judge from 1995 until 2004

and had a private practice for 40 years prior to joining the bench. “Truly we lost another of the greatest generation,” Cannavo said. “He lived through the depression, World War [II], he worked very hard to get where he was. He showed us what true grit and determination was really about. He’s truly a great American and I’m going to miss him.” Cannavo’s eulogy came at a Columbian Lawyers meeting on discrimination against Italian-Americans, which seemed appropriate as he recalled the judge’s efforts to build up the association. “He was one of the founding members of what the Columbian Lawyers [Association] was,” Cannavo said. “He was always involved because he liked to be the tremendous force that he was. He was a great supporter for everyone. He understood what this organization was about and how important it was for professionals of Italian-American descent to have a forum where they could feel welcome and get the support they needed to continue in this and profession.

BRIEF HISTORY: CLINTON HILL Clinton Hill has historically been a wealthy neighborhood with Romanesque mansions, classic Victorian rowhouses, Italian frame villas and pre-Civil War frame houses lining its streets. It was the highest ground in the area and part of a parcel of land acquired by the Dutch in the 1600s. In 1832, Clinton Avenue was laid out as a tree-lined boulevard along the crest of a hill and named for DeWitt Clinton, onetime mayor of the City of New York. And by

the 1840s, large homes with lawns, stables and carriage houses had been built. The area was considered a rural retreat until the 1860s, when developers had row houses built, attracting rich professionals. That included oil executive Charles Pratt, who had his mansion built on Clinton Avenue and then built houses for four of his sons in the area. Pratt’s move influenced other wealthy industrialists to build mansions on Clinton and Washington avenues between

1880 and 1915, including the Pfizers. The first apartment buildings in the area were constructed in the 1900s and during the 1920s and 1930s, they replaced a number of the mansions. Then in 1954, power broker Robert Moses cleared a five-block area south of Pratt Institute for urban renewal, causing many of the one-family homes to become rooming houses. Many of the neighborhood’s neglected brownstones were restored in the 1970s and a portion of Clinton Hill was designated as a historic district in 1981. — Norm Goldstein

Take a Stroll to Queens from D’town Brooklyn, Part Two You’ll See Pratt Institute Sculptures and historic Mansions By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It starts with a Shake Shack and ends with a cemetery. How can you resist? If you want to walk to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn, Willoughby’s a fine way to go. For part of your stroll, you’ll notice this thoroughfare is called Willoughby Street. On the far side of Fort Greene Park, it becomes Willoughby Avenue.

Welcome to Pratt Institute. Here's its landmarked Main Building. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

The street is lined with eye-catching new apartment towers and landmarked houses. It slices through Clinton Hill, BedfordStuyvesant and Bushwick. It ends a couple blocks into Ridgewood, Queens, at Linden Hill United Methodist Cemetery. We’ve split our story of our walk into three parts so we can show you as many photos as possible. This is Part Two.

Do You Know the Way to Ryerson Walk?

Hall. John Mead Howells designed the other wing, namely the neo-Romanesque-style Memorial Hall.

Pratt Institute’s Outdoor Sculptures

A collection of more than 60 artworks that’s on display on the campus is called the Pratt Institute Sculpture Park. It includes pieces that famous and emerging artists have loaned to the school plus some commissioned works. When you’ve finished your stroll inside Pratt Institute’s gates and return to Willoughby Avenue, at the corner of Emerson Place you’ll see the landmarked Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses.

There are landmarked houses galore and stunning churches on Willoughby Avenue in Clinton Hill. But the best eye candy of all is at Pratt Institute, which we’ll show you first. — Continued on page 17INB — The art, architecture and design college’s campus begins at the intersection Avenue or Flushing Avenue on the north and Fulton of Willoughby Avenue and Hall Street and exStreet or Atlantic Avenue on the south.

This is stunning Jacob Dangler House on the corner of Willoughby and Nostrand avenues.

Take a Stroll to Queens From D’town Brooklyn, Part Two — Continued from page 16NB — They were constructed in 1907. Architect Hobart A. Walker designed the Colonial Revival-style brick homes. Alternating townhouses have either Dutch Colonial-style stepped gable roofs or details that suggest Elizabethan half-timber homes. The college recently restored the rowhouses and turned them into student housing. Brooklyn’s own Charles Pratt founded the institute in 1887. The 19th-century industrialist and philanthropist sold his oil refineries to John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil and became an important figure at that company. Pratt, who lived in Clinton Hill, created the institute as a technical-training school for workers. Students in the early days prepared for careers as architects, engineers, dressmakers and furniture makers, the institute’s website says.

A Lovely Landmarked Church

Now double back with us to Fort Greene. One of the most eye-catching properties in the neighborhood is the landmarked French Speaking Baptist Church. It’s red brick and Romanesque Revival in style, with a distinctive tower situated on its Willoughby and Clermont avenues corner. It was the Simpson Methodist Episcopal Church at the time of its construction in 1869, a Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report about the Fort Greene Historic District says. Architecture firm Mundell & Teckritz designed the church. As you keep strolling, you’ll see lots of lovely rowhouses. The ones on the corner of Willoughby and Vanderbilt avenues, which are semishrouded by shrubs and lovely trees, are especially charming. In a moment, you’re in the Clinton Hill Historic District.

District designation report: Charles Pratt built houses on Clinton Avenue as wedding gifts for his sons. One of them was 229 Clinton Ave., which was a present for Frederic B. Pratt. Manhattan architecture firm Babb, Cook & Willard designed the neo-Italian Renaissance palazzo-style mansion in 1895. It’s made of gray brick and white granite and marble trim and has a magnificent, tree-shaded lawn. At the front entrance, there’s a two-story-high stoa, which is a promenade with columns and a roof. Another especially eye-pleasing Clinton Hill Historic District spot is the intersection of Willoughby and Washington avenues, where there are fab historic houses all over the place. On one side of Willoughby Avenue, there’s a pair of Romanesque Revival-style houses at 229-231 Washington Ave., which J.G. Glover designed in 1892 for brothers John and Henry von Glahn. On the other side, there’s a row of five neo-Grec brownstones at 235-243 Washington Ave. that W.H. Gaylor designed in 1879. The corner house in this row has a mansard roof.

Apartments Planned for St. Mary’s Property As you continue walking, you’ll arrive at Pratt Institute. After that, at the edge of Clinton Hill, you’ll see a big property on the corner of Willoughby and Classon avenues where tall grasses wave in the breeze. Stunning landmarked St. Mary’s Episcopal Church is the most important building on the site.


NBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Its address is 230 Classon Ave. Richard Tylden Auchmuty designed the Gothic Revivalstyle church in 1858, a Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report about the property says. It’s made of brownstone quarried in Belleville, New Jersey, near Newark, and has a soaring spire. In 2016, the Real Deal and DNAinfo reported that St. Mary’s plans to demolish a parish house on the property and build a 142-unit apartment building in its place. It will also demolish a rectory to make the church building more visible to folks out on the street. We looked at Finance Department records and saw that an entity called 230 Classon Development LLC signed a 99year lease with St. Mary’s for the portion of the property where the construction is planned. The LLC’s authorized signatory on the lease is Travis Stabler. Stabler is the founder of Rivington Company, which is a development and property-management firm.

A Gas Station/Development Site

As Willoughby Avenue continues into Bed-Stuy, autobody shops and industrial buildings dot the streetscape. The owner of a Shell gas station at 895 Bedford Ave. on the corner of Willoughby Avenue is seeking zoning changes in order to develop the property. A city Environmental Assessment Statement filed in August says the proposed project would be a seven-story, 36-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail space. In 2014, Bill Wolf Petroleum Corp. transferred ownership of 895 Bedford Ave. to an LLC, Finance Department records show.

Jacob Dangler’s Mansion

On Willoughby Avenue blocks further into Bed-Stuy, there are beautiful brownstones and stately old-fashioned apartment houses. One of the most memorable properties is Jacob Dangler’s mansion, which is 441 Willoughby Ave. on the corner of Nostrand Avenue. It’s made of orange-hued brick with stone trim and has a turret. It looks kinda like a fantasy castle. Dangler, a prosperous immigrant entrepreneur, built the French Gothic Revival-style mansion around 1902, architectural history expert Suzanne Spellen wrote in a two-part story. Finance Department records identify the current owner as the United Grand Chapter Order of Eastern Star, State of New York Inc.

A Home for Pratt’s President

One of our favorite sights in this landmarked area is Caroline Ladd Pratt House at 229 Clinton Ave., just off the corner of Willoughby Avenue. It serves as a residence for Pratt Institute’s president.

When It Comes To Multifamily Properties, The Sun Is About To Shine Brighter On Sunset Park By Stephen Vorvolakos, Director – Investment Sales

David Baruch, Senior Analyst – Investment Research

Brooklyn is undeniably one of the hottest destinations for multifamily properties, with the asset classes’ steady returns and capital preservation being significant draws. As some regions become overwhelmed with supply, investors will likely turn their attention to neighborhoods that are poised to become the “next big thing,” and Sunset Park is high on their list. In the first three quarters of 2018, New York City’s biggest borough recorded 284 multifamily transactions consisting of 372 properties, totaling approximately $2.75 billion in gross consideration, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ Investment Research Division. On a year-over-year basis, transaction and building volume held steady, but dollar volume soared 71% due to a noticeable increase in large and institutional caliber sales. For the past three years, Brooklyn has comprised almost 50% of NYC’s multifamily transaction volume. So far in 2018, the borough has constituted roughly 46% of NYC’s 500 multifamily sales. After an active 2017, investors took a breather from Sunset Park’s multifamily market this year, a trend likely to prove transitory given the area’s slew of amenities and attributes. From its proximity to Manhattan and favorable zoning to its huge industrial waterfront, rapid population growth and strong retail landscape, multifamily buildings are poised to appreciate. And Sunset Park’s spectacular hillside views of Manhattan are icing on the cake. Nearby Gowanus is in the midst of a major transformation, with Whole Foods, Royal Palms Shuffle Board, Dino BBQ and Ample Hills Creamery all planting their flag in the area. Residential demand followed, so it is no surprise that real estate developers, restauranteurs and artists have turned the once working class neighborhood into a trendy hot spot that is comparable to Williamsburg just ten years ago. Now investors are searching for the “Next Gowanus,” and their answer lies squarely on Sunset Park, which is quite similar in demographics and scenery. Gowanus is awash with new development, with 1,650 new residential units in the pipeline, according to data collected by Recity. Sunset Park, on the other hand, is just getting started. Last year, Fairstead Capital purchased a 42-building portfolio comprised of 403 total units for north of $100 million. In mid-August, New Empire Corp. revealed plans for three midrise towers totaling well over one million square feet across multiple blocks, spanning from 8th Avenue to Fort Hamilton Parkway. The sheer size and scope of this massive complex is unprecedented for

Sunset Park and is likely a sign of more to come. Flurry Of Favorable Factors Sunset Park is located within the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Business Zone. This zoning provides firms with economic incentives for relocation to the area, including business income tax credits of up to $3,000 per employee, property tax abatements and reduced energy costs. With these improvements, major technology/advertising/media/information (TAMI) businesses have moved into the area. The decline in brick-and-mortar retail demand due to the rise of e-commerce continues to take a toll on retailers, namely in Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn. As a result, stores have increasingly set their sights on more affordable rents, which can be found Sunset Park. The Brooklyn Nets’ practice facilities, Bed Bath & Beyond, Saks Off 5th, Five Borough Brewing Company, Brooklyn Kura Sake Distillery and World Market are all situated in the area. The above attractions should continue to bring new residents. Since 2000, Sunset Park’s population has grown 7.2%, sharply above Brooklyn as a whole, which grew 4.3%. From a pricing perspective, demand for residential space will only continue to rise in Sunset Park, and some investors have already taken notice. Right now, residential rents in Gowanus average about $38 per square foot, while Sunset Park’s average rent is only $28 per square foot, showing there is still plenty of upside to be unlocked for multifamily investors. Excluding residential homes and townhouses, about 30% of the properties located in Sunset Park are multifamily buildings. As developers begin to realize the future potential, this number will surely grow. Through the first three quarters of 2018, property values in Sunset Park have spiked. The price per square foot for a multifamily building sale averaged $444, a remarkable 22% increase from 2017. Meanwhile, the average price per unit was $350,757, an impressive 25% increase from last year. Despite higher property values, there is still significant upside due to many of the above-mentioned reasons. Lastly, while other Brooklyn neighborhoods that rely on the L-train face uncertainty next year when it closes for 18-24 months, Sunset Park will be largely unscathed due to its copious transportation options. Looking ahead, the multifamily property market in Sunset Park is a bastion of opportunity. The region’s favorable zoning, beautiful waterfront views, thriving retail sector and relative affordability should continue to entice investors and residents alike, all but guaranteeing a strong investment sales market for the foreseeable future.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Chabad-Lubavitch Leaders Worldwide Gather in Crown Heights for Conference Last week’s annual gathering in Crown Heights of more than 5,000 Chabad-Lubavitch rabbis from around the world this year was somber. A rabbinical delegation from Pittsburgh led the group in prayer and solemn song to mourn the those who were brutally murdered in an anti-Semitic shooting eight days before. Emissaries from Pittsburgh had spent the Shabbat with overflowing congregations in synagogues and on college campuses back home before traveling to New York. Attending were 5,600 rabbis and communal leaders from 100 countries and 50 U.S. states, according to an email from a Chabad spokesperson. They were all visiting New York for the annual event, which is aimed at strengthening Jewish awareness and practice around the world. The assembly then posed for the annual group picture of International Conference of ChabadLubavitch Emissaries taken in front of ChabadLubavitch world headquarters in Brooklyn. This year’s gathering comes only days after the anti-Semitic shooting in Pittsburgh which has been a focal point of the conference. See full story by INBrooklyn correspondent Todd Maisel on

Brooklynite Tapped As Interim CEO Of Historic Collegiate Churches

Dan Lehman

Prospect Heights resident Daniel J. (Dan) Lehman has been named the interim CEO of the Collegiate Churches of New York, which he joined last month. Established in 1628, the Collegiate Churches of New York have old, deep roots in a great city, yet have also embraced a thoroughly modern perspective on spirituality and community in a greater world. Founded in the tradition of Reformed Protestantism, Collegiate responds to the spiritual needs of people today by embracing diversity, affirmation, openness and justice. Collegiate defines itself as “a single historic church with five city-wide ministries—four churches and one outreach ministry called Intersections International. Each is unique in approach and character, but unified in our core values of inclusion, self-exploration and positive thinking. As a spiritual community we encourage people to search, discover and flourish.” As a government and nonprofit executive and leader, Lehman offers a wide range of strategic planning, organizational development and operations management skills along with a deep commitment to improving the lives of others. Prior to joining Collegiate, Lehman served as chief financial officer and chief operating officer at Children’s Aid New York. He has experience in public health and social services with the city of New York, and in health care and information technology consulting. He began his career with MDRC in New York, analyzing the effectiveness of welfare-to-work and employment-training programs prior to the passage of federal welfare reform legislation in 1996. Lehman holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from NYU’s Stern School of Business and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics & East Asian Studies from Harvard University. A native of Duxbury, Mass., Lehman is married with two children.

Episcopal, Roman Catholic Bishops Call On Their Flocks To Be Compassionate Last week, the bishops of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn published pastoral letters regarding the recent shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue and acts of vandalism against Jews in Brooklyn, as well as the then-upcoming elections and national political climate. The Rt. Rev. Lawrence Provenzano, the Episcopal Bishop of a diocese that includes Brooklyn and Queens, addressed the anti-Semitic attacks. His letter reads, “Last week there was the horrendous anti-Semitic attack on worshippers at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue. Today [Friday, Nov. 2] there is news of several Brooklyn synagogues and Jewish schools being attacked by an arsonist and Union Temple vandalized by graffiti—additional ugly displays of evil that appear to be on the increase in our nation. “To counter this evil, I call on the priests and deacons of our diocese and the people of each of our congregations to be the personal, outward and visible expressions of God’s goodness for our Jewish sisters and brothers whose lives and worship are being silenced, threatened or disrupted. “Synagogues across the country are calling on congregants and faith allies to #ShowUpForShabbat this weekend. Let us respond to that call—to show up and stand up to hate and bigotry, to courageously express our solidarity and love in the face of these ongoing acts of hate. “Acts of love must answer acts of hate. Some of our parishes have already reached out to their nearby synagogues and rabbi colleagues and I commend them and bless them for their faithfulness. “The example of Jesus in the Gospel and our baptismal covenant to respect the dignity of every human being call us to act in love and respect and in solidarity with our Jewish siblings and neighbors across Long Island and Brooklyn.” Bishop Provenzano indicated that his vicar for community justice ministry, the Rev. Marie Tatro, is also coordinating the diocese’s response to this crisis.


Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, in his Nov. 7 column “Put Out Into the Deep,” had gone to press before election results were in. But he chose to address the national mood in a column titled ‘The Dangers of Populist Nationalism.” DiMarzio pointed out that Populist Nationalism aims to instill fear in the hearts of citizens against people who are different from themselves. Describing a recent Vatican conference on Xenophobia, racism and populist nationalism, DiMarzio said, “Populist Nationalism is a political strategy that seeks to rely on and promote the fears of individuals and groups in order to assert the need for an authoritarian political power to protect the interests of the dominant social or ethnic group established on a particular territory. It is in the name of this ‘protection’ that populist leaders justify the refusal to offer refuge, to receive and to integrate individuals or groups from other countries or different cultural or religious contexts.” DiMarzio touched on several issues at the forefront of the news, including the caravan of refugees, birthright citizen-

ship and public charge (assistance programs for the needy). “The United States is bound by both federal and international law not to expel or return a refugee whose life or freedom would be threatened on account of his/her race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.” DiMarzio wrote, “As Christians and Catholics, we must support fundamental human rights, and we must reject populist initiatives that are incompatible with Gospel values. This should inspire our participation in political life and political discourse. We need to understand our fundamental choices when it comes to choosing our elected officials who need to defend life at all stages of existence from conception to natural death.”

ON NOV. 5, 1952, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower, in a victory statement, today called on Republicans and Democrats to forget the bitterness of the campaign and work together for national unity. Appearing for the first time in his new role before 2,500 nearly hysterical campaign workers in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Commodore, Eisenhower pledged never to shirk the responsibilities that had been assigned to him. He read the telegram which he had sent to his defeated Democratic opponent in which he thanked him for his congratulations and asked that ‘men and women of good will of both parties forget the political strife of the past and devote themselves to a single purpose of a better future.’”  ON THIS DAY IN 1942, the Eagle reported, “George M. Cohan, Broadway’s remarkable ‘song-and-dance man,’ died at 5 a.m. today, at the age of 64 … Cohan’s passing rang down the curtain on a stage career of more than half a century, during which George M. was actor, dancer, singer, playwright, song writer, director and producer — and a star in each capacity. He was equally at home on the variety stage during vaudeville’s golden age, on the legit when vaudeville began to fade and in musical comedy. During World War I he wrote ‘Over There,’ to which millions of Americans in uniform marched. It was the American war song of 1917-1918. Tradition has it, and the records show, that George M. Cohan was born on the Fourth of July, 1878, and in later years Cohan’s musical comedies had a ‘Star Spangled Banner’ zest which critics joined and audiences loved.”  THE FIRST BASKETBALL BACKBOARD WAS SHATTERED THIS WEEK IN 1946. Chuck Connors of the Boston Celtics became the first NBA player to shatter a backboard, doing so during the pregame warm-up at Boston Garden. The Brooklyn native also played major league baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs and gained fame as star of the television series “The Rifleman.”

For Laughing Out Loud Not sure if you have noticed, but I love bad puns. That’s just how eye roll. Did you hear that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be doing a movie about classical music? He’ll be Bach. My friend keeps saying “Cheer up man it could be worse, u could be stuck underground in a hole full of water” I know he means well.

ON NOV. 6, 1940, the Eagle reported, “Bushwick’s future voters held a practice election yesterday while their parents went to the polls. The result — President [Franklin] Roosevelt 135, Wendell L. Willkie 102. Voting requirements were limited to neighborhood children 5 to 18 years of age. The juvenile voters tossed two repeaters out of the voting line and reported no serious trouble during the balloting which took place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. A jerry-built booth consisting of two mahogany doors and a curtain, plus a cardboard receptacle for the ballots, was stationed in front of 233 Weirfield St. The election was the idea of 7-year-old Cynthia Cali, daughter of Dr. Sam Cali, in front of whose home the election was held. The voters were children largely of German, Italian and Irish ancestry.”  ON NOV. 6, 1949, the Eagle reported, “Brooklyn rose up in its mild wrath yesterday and pretty indignantly denied Pravda’s please-mister-gimme-one-cent-for-something-to-eat charge against Brooklyn. Moscow’s Communist Party newspaper, according to a dispatch from behind the Iron Curtain, quoted a Soviet seaman as saying that in Brooklyn things were just terrible right now. In Brooklyn, Seaman I.A. Zadirozhny was said to have said, there is no shopping in the stores because people have no money, well-dressed men begged him for ‘one cent for food’ and agronomists (unable to find work in their own field) ‘work as hired hands.’ No Brooklyn agronomist could be located to check on the hired-hand story, and a lot of people rushing in and out of Fulton St. stores declined to comment on whether there was shopping in the stores.”

You Should Know This • As the first president of the United States, George Washington was the only president to never declare a party affiliation because they didn’t exist when he was elected into office. • What we know today as the Democratic Party started as the Democratic-Republicans in 1791. The former presidents that affiliated under this party include Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and John Quincy Adams. • The Democratic or Republican parties have won every presidential election since 1852. Better luck next time, American Vegetarians. • The only U.S. president to own a patent and a saloon: Abraham Lincoln. His patent was for a device to lift boats over sandbars. His saloon was a miserable failure. • The current 50-star American flag was designed by a 17-year-old as a school project in 1958. He got a B-.

Brooklyn Eagle cover from Nov. 8, 1918

ON NOV. 8, 1918, the Eagle reported, “(AP) — Germany’s armistice delegates, having entered the French lines under a white flag, last night met Marshal Foch … From him they will receive the armistice terms of the Allies and the United States. The historic meeting occurred in a little village in the Department of the Aisne. Germany will be given 72 hours in which to reply to the terms presented by Marshal Foch. It is declared there will be no cessation of hostilities. The German delegates will not be permitted to haggle. They must accept or go on fighting.”  ON NOV. 8, 1860, the Eagle reported, “No news has been received from the south of a definite character which may serve to show the state of public feeling there now that the thing is over, and Lincoln is constitutionally elected by the people. There are rumors that Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Virginia even stand ready to turn their backs upon us and set up in opposition to Uncle Sam, but we hope they will think better of it. Let them give Abe a chance to see what he will do; if he don’t do right we will all take a hand in making him. Our partnership has been profitable, honorable and glorious, and it should not be dissolved without good cause. No adequate cause has yet been given; when there is, the south may secede and the north will go with her, and we will make it right that way.”
