BAY RIDGE U.S. Rep. Max Rose (D-Southwest Brooklyn-Staten Island) plans to host a town hall meeting at 3 p.m. at Fort Hamilton High School in Bay Ridge. Rose is leading a bipartisan effort in Washington to fully fund the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund, according to Kings County Politics. He serves on the House Committees on Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security.
BEDFORD-STUYVESANT On Thursday, Chipotle will be opening a new location at the intersection of Flushing Avenue and Broadway at the border of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick. The new outlet will be within the famed Fat Albert building, home to a dollar store that is almost certainly named after the well-known Bill Cosby cartoon character. “We come to an area to provide good sustainable food because it’s something every community is missing,” Stacey Fleming, new restaurant strategist for Chipotle, told Bushwick Daily.
BOROUGH PARK One of the men recently arrested and charged with the brutal assault on a group of homeless men in Borough Park has now been charged with attempted murder, according to police. Jesus Guadelupe, 29, of Sunset Park, has also been charged with gang assault, robbery, possession of stolen property and harassment.
A Brooklyn film director is creating a stop-motion film that’s similar to Claymation, but he’s using Legos instead. “Little Guys in Space” is supposed to take place millions of miles away, but most of it was filmed in David Pagano’s Brooklyn studio. The film took Pagano and his crew seven years to complete.
CLINTON HILL A Brooklyn doctor who wrote millions of illegal Oxycodone prescriptions pleaded guilty in Manhattan Supreme Court to 16 felony charges Monday, according to the Daily News. Lazar Feygin sold the prescriptions from his offices in Clinton Hill and Kensington and encouraged his staffers to perform unnecessary tests on patients seeking the pills so his clinics could fraudulently bill Medicare, Medicaid or the patients’ insurance companies. All in all, the clinics prescribed 3.7 million Oxycodone pills between 2012 and 2017, prosecutors said. Feygin will lose his medical license and is expected to receive a five-year sentence.
CROWN HEIGHTS A man kicked a double stroller being pushed by an Orthodox Jewish mother on Sterling Street in Crown Heights on Monday, according to the New York Post. The suspect also swore at the mother and told her to get out of the way. Police have opened a child endangerment investigation into the incident, which was captured on video, and aren’t ruling out a potential hate crime. The Crown Heights Kosher Wine and Food Festival was held on Sunday at Brooklyn Commons, 495 Flatbush Ave. “Originally we had planned for this to be at Wine by the Case on Empire Boulevard in Crown Heights, but it grew so big that we had to rent out this venue on Flatbush Avenue, so

we’re really excited about the turnout,” said organizer Joseph Vogel. Proceeds went to the Friendship Circle, an organization to help children with special needs.
DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN Borough President Eric Adams wants to rename the Brooklyn Municipal Building on Joralemon Street in honor of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. “[Ginsburg] has reached an iconic status equivalent to Serena Williams and Beyonce’s fame,” he was quoted as saying in the Daily News. Adams will celebrate the Brooklyn-born justice’s birthday at Borough Hall on Friday. A suspect whom police caught on video tried to sexually abuse a 16-year-old boy at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center subway station on Friday. The man started talking to the teen, who was waiting for the northbound B train, then kissed him and groped his body, according to the Daily News. The victim pushed the man away and got on the train.
DYKER HEIGHTS A group of students from Dyker Heights Intermediate School are designing a special desk for their classmate Maria Pizzo, whose wheelchair can’t fit under a regular desk. Her wheelchair is too wide and too high for existing desks. In addition, her paraprofessional, Peggy Chevalier, needs to retrieve Maria’s materials from the back of her wheelchair because Maria can’t retrieve them.
EAST FLATBUSH Eleven students were treated on Monday after being exposed to pepper spray at the Middle School for Art and Philosophy in East Flatbush. Police said a 13-year-old student had a metal can of pepper spray around her neck that her mother had given her. When she put her head on the desk, she accidentally leaned on the canister, spraying a mist of pepper spray, according to CBS News. A car slammed into a pole and caught fire early on Sunday in East Flatbush, seriously injuring the driver and a passenger. The wreck happened about 3:30 a.m. near Tilden Avenue and Kings Highway. Both victims had to be extracted from the burning car, and the driver was hospitalized in critical condition.
EAST NEW YORK Police are seeking an unidentified man who allegedly
robbed and tried to rape a woman inside her East New York apartment on Monday morning. The man knocked on the victim’s door at a building near Doscher Street and Liberty Avenue, then pushed her onto the couch, police said. He allegedly demanded money and demanded sex from the woman. When she refused, the man fled with $20, police said. A high school lifeguard at the Franklin K. Lane Campus in East New York saved a drowning student on Monday. The 15-year-old was in the pool during a swim class around 3 p.m. when he went under, according to the New York Post. The lifeguard quickly pulled the teen from the water and performed CPR before an ambulance rushed him to Jamaica Hospital. A school doctor also assisted in the rescue and used a defibrillator.
FLATBUSH Councilmember Mathieu Eugene (D-Flatbush-East Flatbush) on Friday presented Kings County Hospital with a check for $1.9 million for new radiation oncology and mammography equipment. Earlier, Eugene secured funding for a robotic surgical system for the hospital that was unveiled in December.
GREENPOINT Brooklyn design firm A/D/O plans to set up a location in China before the end of the year. “In Brooklyn, we’ve had great conversations” but “we’re missing a lot of the world and missing an important part of the conversation,” managing director Nate Pinsley told Forbes. A/D/O is headquartered in a 23,000-square-foot former warehouse in Greenpoint.
WILLIAMSBURG An affordable housing lottery has opened for 41 apartment in a new seven-story building at 123 Hope St. in Williamsburg, according to Brownstoner. Fifteen of the affordable apartments are studios, 20 are one-bedrooms and six are two-bedrooms. Monthly rents range between $1,230 and $2.759. A manhole fire shot flames into the air on Sunday morning on Conselyea Street in Williamsburg. It took firefighters less than an hour to bring the blaze under control, but 70 customers on the block were temporarily left without power. Con Edison workers yesterday were busy trying to find out what sparked the flames.

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

Galanin has created sixty porcelain hatchets, which are suspended from the gallery ceiling. When: Thursdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 2 – 6 p.m., Where: Park Slope/Open Source Gallery (306 17th Street)
OTHER WAYS OF KNOWING In our modern society, imagery is read instantly and without question. Other Ways of Knowing looks at how we see in order to challenge how we acquire knowledge. By questioning our relationship to images, we can look at the ways we’re fed imagery on a daily basis and teach us how to discern for ourselves what that imagery means to us. Other Ways of Knowing references illusion and misdirection traditionally designed to influence choice and transforms them into a new visual language. This digital iteration of Other Ways of Knowing features new additions to the series never exhibited before. The screens in the Made in NY Media Center will challenge the viewer to interact with a screen – a daily routine part of our lives – within a new context, one where you’re asked to stay for longer. This exhibition explores the narrative of the series in a new and refreshing way, accomplished by the unique collaboration of the space and the artist. When: Daily through March 31st Where: DUMBO/Made in N.Y. Media Center (30 John Street)

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY
For two years, Brooklynbased photojournalist Cinthya Santos Briones has photographed undocumented migrants who face orders of deportation. By taking up asylum in houses of worship, often for indefinite periods of time, these individuals and their families have found both a refuge and a provisional prison. Santos Briones’ photographs are an intimate depiction of living in a state of uncertainty. Rather than present portraits of people in hopeless situations, she has chosen to convey the universal routines of their everyday lives. Birthdays are celebrated, siblings tease one another, and meals are shared. When: Daily through April 7th, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Where: Green-Wood/GreenWood Cemetery (500 25th
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 ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work. Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954. They are displayed alongside important paintings, drawings, and photographs from the celebrated Jacques and Natasha Gelman
Collection of 20th Century Mexican Art, as well as related historical film and ephemera. To highlight the collecting interests of Kahlo and her husband, muralist Diego Rivera, works from our extensive holdings of Mesoamerican art are also included. When: Daily through May 12th, Times vary. Check Showclix for times and tickets Where: Crown Heights/ Brooklyn Museum (200 Eastern Parkway)

Five Favorite Sights in Crown Heights South
Start With Doctor’s Row and You Can’t Go Wrong By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Once upon a time, Brooklyn’s best surgeons congregated on President Street. It became a hot spot for medical professionals to live a century ago and earned the nickname Doctor’s Row, which endures to this day. The mansions that line President Street blocks between New York and Kingston avenues in Crown Heights South are gracious designs surrounded by lawns. Just a few blocks away, large-scale development is planned at the Spice Factory, whose address is 960 Franklin Ave. But on today’s wintry stroll, we’re sticking to Doctor’s Row and the immediately surrounding streets, where the housing stock is lovely and largely low-rise, and a sense of serenity pervades.
If you’re taking the subway to Crown Heights South, why not ride the 2 train to the President Street-Nostrand Avenue stop? It’s just a block away from Doctor’s Row.
‘IMPRESSIVE CONCENTRATION OF FREESTANDING MANSIONS’ A 1978 city Landmarks Preservation Commission report about a proposal to create a Crown Heights South Historic District provides details about numerous properties in the neighborhood — including homes on Doctor’s Row. The area did not win landmark designation, though it deserves to do so. Doctor’s Row is “one of the most impressive concentrations of freestanding mansions in the city,” the report says.
The houses were built between 1899 and 1930. They were designed in various architectural styles. For instance, 1290-1294 President St., which William Debus designed in 1911, has a neo-Renaissance-inspired flat roof and a Beaux-Arts Classical Revival-style portico, the report says. One of our favorite Doctor’s Row houses is 1281 President St. It’s clad in orangey-hued brick and has a big, beautiful round turret topped by a roof that’s shaped like a witch’s hat.
J.L. BRUSH DESIGNED THESE CARROLL STREET HOUSES Around the corner from Doctor’s Row, there’s a second spot that’s a favorite of ours — the Carroll Street block between Kingston and Albany avenues.

Eye on CROWN HEIGHTS
This Doctor's Row house at 1281 President St. has a terrific turret.
Pretty porches grace 1298 President St. at left and 1290-1294 President St. at right on this Doctor's Row block.
Five Favorite Sights in Crown Heights South — Continued from page 12INB — On the end of the block near the Kingston Avenue intersection, there’s a row of sophisticated red-brick houses with squared-off facades topped by tiny roofs. Above the roofs, there are decorative brick elements that look a bit like crowns.
Near that corner, you’ll see the landmark-worthy Loews Kameo Theatre, which opened in 1925, a posting on the website Cinema Treasures says. A church currently owns the dramatic property at 530 Eastern Parkway.
There’s an eye-catching row of brick rowhouses with rectangular facades and dramatic windowsills. Out front, there’s a shrubbery hedge like you’d see in the suburbs. Further down the block, there are handsome standalone brick houses. The porches are brick, too, which is interesting looking.
SEMI-DETACHED BROWNSTONES ON CARROLL STREET Next we’re circling back to Carroll Street, to a sweet block between Nostrand and New York avenues. It has pairs of brownstones with curvy facades. Each pair stands together like it’s a single house.
LIMESTONE ROWS ON NEW YORK AVENUE
Standalone houses with distinctive brick porches can be found at 443 Crown St. at right and 441 Crown St. at left. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan These houses are very eye-pleasing. Further down the block, there’s a row of bow-front brownstone and limestone houses the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s report says are “among the finest groupings” in the proposed historic district. Their addresses are 1401 to 1425 Carroll St. Brooklyn architect J.L. Brush designed them in 1913, the report says.
CHARMING CROWN STREET
Around another corner, the Crown Street block between Kingston and Brooklyn avenues has an intriguing juxtaposition of old-fashioned housing stock.
When you get to the corner of New York Avenue, turn left to find our fifth fine sight in Crown Heights South. On both sides of the block between Carroll and President streets, there are rows of cylindrical limestone houses. They have such a classic look. Of course there will be other things you’ll want to see. There’s eye candy everywhere you turn in Crown Heights South. When you’re ready to depart, why not head to the Eastern Parkway-Nostrand Avenue 3 train station?

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

Josephine Augello, President 5015 New Utrecht Ave. Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 13, 1928
ON MARCH 13, 1928, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Los Angeles, March 13 (AP) — More than 100 persons were swept to death early today in San Francisquito Canyon, north of here, when St. Francis dam, impounding part of Los Angeles water supply, burst and unloosed a 75-foot wall of water into the narrow valley. Officials expressed fear that the death toll might reach 400. A telegram received at the sheriff’s office here from Eugene Biscailluz, under sheriff in charge of rescue work, said that 100 bodies had been recovered where the flood waters entered the Santa Paula and Santa Clara rivers. Ten bodies were taken from the canyon this morning and were placed in a morgue at Saugus. What caused the retaining parapet of the great reservoir to give way suddenly was almost as much of a mystery as the number of dead that lay buried beneath the deep covering of yellow sand which now carpets the pretty little valley.”

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

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Grace parishioner, scholar is award-winning children’s book author and illustrator By Francesca Norsen Tate, Religion Editor Brooklyn Eagle

Grace Church parishioner Benjamin Morse holds advanced degrees in art, Biblical interpretation and theology. The son of an Episcopal priest, he has summarized the New Testament, emphasizing the story of Jesus as a healer and Savior in a way that appeals to children. This weekend, he will give a presentation on his book, “The News about Jesus and How He Saved the World.” Published in October, 2018, “The News about Jesus” emphasizes the call for compassion and presents Jesus as a figure who healed the sick, befriended the outcasts and comforted the poor. “The News about Jesus and How He Saved the World ”is a sequel to Morse’s illustrated Torah/ Old Testament, which Jewish Book World called "a beautiful, brilliant work of art" (starred review). Morse’s expressive illustrations are markedly different from those found in other children’s Bibles, and his prose style respects the young reader’s intelligence. Morse studied religion and art history at Vassar College. He later completed master’s degrees in biblical interpretation (Oxford Uni-
versity) and modern art (the Courtauld Institute in London), and a Ph.D. in theology (Glasgow University.) His academic work has been published in multiple collections and journals. He lives in Brooklyn. Another of Morse’s books, “The Oldest Bedtime Story Ever,” received multiple starred reviews, was named a top religion and spirituality book for children by Booklist, and won the gold medal for religion/spirituality and bronze medal for book art in the 2013 Moonbeam Children’s Awards for independent publishers. In 2017 and 2018, Morse’s Old and New Testaments were selected to be gifted to the participants in the Harlem Week Spelling Bee and to Harlem Week Lifetime Achievement Winner Dionne Warwick. In addition to winning the Illumination Award for best children’s picture book, “The News about Jesus and How He Saved the World” received a gold standard seal from the Junior Library Guild for 2019. On March 17, Morse will share his whimsical and engaging artwork and biblical storytelling. He will first speak with the youths’ Journey to Adulthood class, and will later present during coffee hour after the 11 a.m. service.

Pastors of St. Charles and Grace Church jointly lead series on Christ’s crucifixion By Francesca Norsen Tate, Religion Editor Brooklyn Eagle
An ecumenical legacy between two nearby parishes is revived. St. Charles Borromeo Roman Catholic Church and Grace Church Brooklyn Heights, an Episcopal parish, have been linked since the time each was founded in the 1840s. The Episcopalians sold their original sanctuary building, Emmanuel Church on Sidney Place, to the Roman Catholic congregation, and then bought a plot of land on Hicks Street. On Sidney Place, the Roman Catholics established a new parish named for a 16th-century archbishop known as the patron saint of education. Then, during the years Monsignor Charles Diviney was pastor of St. Charles (1959-78), he and the then-rector of Grace Church, the Rev. F. Goldthwaite (Goldy) Sherrill became dear friends and collaborated on an interfaith Lenten series that expanded to other neighborhood churches. Although both Diviney and Sherrill are deceased, their legacy lives on through a
friendship that Diviney shared with the current pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Church, Fr. William Smith. This Lent, Smith and the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, rector of Grace Church, will jointly lead a book study starting this Thursday, March 14. The selected text is Fleming Rutledge’s “The Crucifixion: Understanding the Death of Jesus Christ,” which is available online. The prayer and discussion series will convene on Thursdays through April 4, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., and will include light fare. St. Charles Borromeo Church on Sidney Place will host the opening session, and then the two parishes will alternate as host, with Grace Church hosting on March 21 and April 4. Participants will examine the question: “Would your relationship with Jesus be any different if we proclaimed instead that he died by hanging or decapitation? Together…we will examine why the Crucifixion is so important in knowing and loving Jesus and in our own attempts to follow him.”

Young Jewish Professionals group launches networking breakfast series Brooklyn Heights Young Jewish Professionals will launch a networking breakfast on March 28. Shaindy and Eliyahu Raskin, founders of the Young Jewish Professionals of Brooklyn Heights, will host the kickoff breakfast at 7:30 a.m. at Congregation B'nai Avraham, 117 Remsen St. The Raskins, serving as shluchim to the community of young professionals and law students in this neighborhood, are part of a respected and beloved rabbinical family that has served Brooklyn for over three generations. The renowned leader and thinker Rabbi Aaron “Ari” Raskin is spiritual leader of Congregation B’nai Avraham. Shluchim are members of the Chabad-Lubavitch movement who “promote Judaism and provide daily lectures and insights,” according to shluchim.org. "I want the young professionals of Brooklyn Heights to be able to forge a community of their own,” Shaindy Raskin said, envisioning “an elevated experience of networking and fine food in our own backyard. I want to create an elegant atmosphere that forges community, builds professional careers, and creates a stable future for rising Jewish professionals.” The Brooklyn Heights YJP Networking Breakfast is a business development forum. It offers members the chance to connect with thought leaders, engage in dialogue and discuss

A Great Victory For This Borough
BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE • MARCH 12, 1902
— AN EDITORIAL —
The people of Brooklyn have good reason to rejoice over the news that the construction of the Brooklyn-Battery tunnel is at last assured. The long fight is finally ended with the announcement of a $57,000,000 loan from the [Reconstruction Finance Corporation] for the tube proper. The Triborough Bridge Authority is to build the Brooklyn approach to the Belt Parkway at a cost of $11,000,000 and the city itself is to provide the $12,000,000 for the Manhattan links to the new facility. This constitutes one of the greatest civic victories in the history of the borough. And it is a source of pride to the Eagle that it has been actively associated from the beginning with this vital community undertaking. Rapidly increasing traffic congestion has made it so difficult to get in and out of Brooklyn that there was grave danger of losing industries and ruining commerce

As plans now move forward for actually beginning the construction work in the next few weeks, we should not forget our lasting debt to the officials who led the long fight to get Washington support for the project: the late Borough President Raymond V. Ingersoll, Park Commissioner Robert Moses and Mayor [Fiorello] LaGuardia. It is especially to be regretted that Mr. Ingersoll did not live to see this badly needed traffic link finally become a reality.

DROPPING A NOTE BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE • MARCH 12, 1856
To the Editor of the Eagle: In your excellent column on music in yesterday’s paper, you make some valuable suggestions, which I think for the credit of our city ought to be attended to. Why cannot we of the Western District — as well as New York, Boston, and even the Eastern District — have an Harmonic or some other society, where our amateur musicians — vocal and instrumental — can meet together, and perfect themselves in the compositions of the great masters. We have a sufficient number in our choirs alone to make a large society; and we know that there is talent enough among them (although a would-be critic, signing himself “G” has endeavored to show the contrary, as respects some of them) to make it successful. Who will start the ball? Yours in hope, Minim

Kennedy at a benefit art exhibit which opened in New York City on May 5, 1964. Farmer said he hoped the exhibit would provide the “funds and fuel” for CORE’s civil rights projects. De Kooning, born Elaine Fried in Flatbush on March 12, 1918, married fellow artist Willem de Kooning in 1943. She died in Southampton, N.Y. in 1989.

Wouldn’t the pleasures of a holiday be increased and its pains mitigated if parading societies shortened the line of march? At the meeting to make arrangements for St. Patrick’s Day, a delegate, protesting against the length of the route, exclaimed, “Why don’t we go to Ireland at once?” — insisting that the walk would not be much more tiresome. The original line was adhered to, however, so that to those who assist in the parade the celebration will be one of extraordinary toil rather than festivity, and the weary marching party will be ill prepared to engage in the subsequent pleasures of the day. In behalf of the rank and file, who bear the heat and burden of the day, we urge committees of arrangements hereafter to shorten the line.
[Borough] President [J. Edward] Swanstrom announced today that he was looking up the proper legal course of procedure to enforce the law relating to underground wires in the Borough of Brooklyn, and that he intends to take steps in the matter as soon as he is sure of his ground. “The charter is clear enough in intention,” said President Swanstrom, “but I have encountered one difficulty. The penalty seems to be provided for violations of the law by the companies. The matter will have to go to Corporation Counsel [George L.] Rives for his opinion.” The Board of Estimate and Apportionment has authority to act. Mr. Swanstrom has found that the board can by resolution direct the Commissioner of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity to order electrical conductors placed underground whenever in the opinion of the board it “shall be desirable and practical.” In the term “electrical conductors” are included all the overhead wires of the street railway, telegraph, telephone and electrical lighting companies on all “streets, avenues, highways and public places” in Brooklyn. The Commissioner of Water Supply, Gas and Electricity has the power, after hearing the arguments of all parties of interest, to designate what wires shall go down, and to fix mandatorily a time for the completion of the work. The discretion as to desirability and practicability is fixed in the Board of Estimate and Apportionment under the revised charter instead of the Board of Public Works. No headway has been made in official efforts to force wires underground in this borough, although the subject is raised with nearly every change of administration. The last agitation was under the [Robert A.] Van Wyck administration, when [Borough] President [Edward M.] Grout addressed a communication to the Board of Public Improvements, setting forth at considerable length the arguments in favor of a change. His communication was never acted upon. President [Jacob L.] Greatsinger of the Brooklyn Rapid Transit Company was fully advised yesterday of the agitation going on among officials. He said that the problem presented in Brooklyn had special difficulties which do not apply in other boroughs, and that these difficulties cannot immediately be solved. “There are engineering difficulties,” said he. “While it is safe and feasible to construct electrical conduits for street car propulsion in Manhattan or wherever similar favorable conditions exist, it is impossible to do so in Brooklyn on account of the moisture which in all seasons lies close to the surface, and the demonstrated inadequacy of the drainage system to carry it off. “Our greatest difficulty in operating our present overhead wire system is this moisture. The interruptions to traffic this winter have been caused by rains and thaws, not by snows. Owing to the low levels and peculiarities of street grades, many miles of our trackage are subject to inundation by every rainfall or thaw of consequence. It would require either the complete reconstruction of the drainage system or the raising of the street grades to make the conduit system feasible, and even with so great an outlay its success in Brooklyn would be doubtful.” The original law requiring underground electrical conduits was enacted in 1895. At that time the conduit trolley system was undeveloped and the law was construed to apply to telegraph, telephone and electric light and power wires. It was strong enough later on to deter the Manhattan street railways from establishing the overhead trolley system and indirectly compelled the Metropolitan Company to experiment with the underground system now established. President [Herbert H.] Vreeland of that company said yesterday that he did not believe the conduit system would be practical for Brooklyn Railways.
