Special for the Brooklyn Eagle
Hundreds of spectators came out to cheer on the 115 contestants of the Fort Greene PUPS’ 20th annual Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest on Sunday, where pooches of all sizes and their enthusiastic owners dressed in creative costumes. The contest organized by the non-profit Fort Greene Pups gave seven honorable mentions to the most creative costumes that included Luchadoarble Lucy, Black Panther, Amelia Earhart, Notorious D.O.G, Mitten the Sour Patch Kid, Hannah the War Horse and Wonder Woman.
The PUPkin judging panel included Dr. Bill Farmer, the owner of the Heart of Brooklyn Veterinary Hospital; the Emmy award-winning art director for Sesame Street Matt Duncan; Jen LaPorta, the owner of Hudson Jane Restaurant; and the pop star and anti-bullying advocate Meredith O’Connor. The judges picked three top costumes and the hundreds of audience members chose the winners by cheering for their favorites. Third place went to a dog dressed up as the “Up house,” “Doggy Poppins” came in second and the absolute winner was “Oscar the Grouch.”

NEIGHBORHOOD NEWSBEAT Goodbye Century-Old Printing Plant, Hello Apartment Tower Downtown DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A demolition permit has been issued for an almost-100-year-old Downtown Brooklyn commercial-industrial building that is slated to be replaced with a 44-story apartment tower. The building at 141 Willoughby St. was built in 1919 as the printing plant of the American Law Book Company, according to Brownstoner. It was constructed with large retail spaces on the ground floor, complete with large show windows. From 1968 until 2015, the building housed the Institute for Design and Construction, a technical school, according to Brownstoner. Developer Savanna Partners, which purchased the building from the technical school, released renderings for a 49-story glass tower in 2014. However, the City Council mandated that the original plans be modified. Today, Brownstoner said, Savanna plans a building with 203 apartments, 61 of which will be rented at below-market rates.
Times Editorial Board Endorses Gounardes Over Sen. Golden BAY RIDGE — The New York Times editorial board has endorsed Democratic challenger Andrew Gounardes in his race against Republican state Sen. Marty Golden to represent the 22nd state Senate District (Bay Ridge-Dyker Heightsparts of Bensonhurst-Marine Park).While the Times editorial board acknowledged Golden’s “affable” nature and his ‘good cheer,” it said voters should not let these qualities distract from several of Golden’s “questionable actions.” In an op-ed in Friday’s edition of the Times, the editorial board pointed out that Golden, until recently, opposed efforts to increase the number of speed cameras near school boards.
Pointing to a possible connection, the op-ed pointed out that Golden’s car has been ticketed 38 times in the past five years, including one occasion in 2015 when it was cited for speeding in a school zone three times. It also said that Golden spent almost $80,000 in campaign money on his brother’s catering business. In contrast, the editorial board praised Gounardes, whom it termed “an Eagle Scout and community activist.” It voiced support for some measures that Gounardes advocates, such as public financing of campaigns, early voting to increase turnout, stronger rent regulations and including commuter representatives on the MTA board.

Daily News Endorses Gounardes Over Golden in State Senate Race BAY RIDGE — The New York Daily News on Wednesday endorsed Democratic challenger Andrew Gounardes in his campaign to unseat Republican state Sen. Marty Golden (R-Southern Brooklyn), who has held his seat since 2002.The News explained that “under Republican control, the state Senate consistently delivers shabby treatment to New York City” and called Golden “part of the GOP gang controlling the Senate by just one vote.” One specific issue the News raised was Golden’s switching sides on the issue of speed cameras within school zones, which the paper citied as an example of opportunism. For many years, Golden was on
record opposing traffic enforcement cameras. But in July 2018, after many neighborhood residents and families of traffic victims criticized him on the issue, Golden called on the state Senate to return to Albany to pass legislation that would keep the cameras operating near New York City schools. The News also criticized Golden, a former police officer, for defending a state law that bars the public from seeing police disciplinary records. It also said he “failed to fight for” the Child Victims Act, which would lengthen statutes of limitation to give thousands of people who were abused as children the opportunity to seek justice.
Keith Haring Mural at Woodhull Restored by Art Conservators BEDFORD-STUYVEANT — Art conservators from the Fine Arts Conservation Group have been coming to Woodhull Hospital in Bedford-Stuyvesant to restore a section of a mural in the hospital lobby by the late Keith Haring, a well-known street artist, muralist and political activist. The company was hired to perform a complete restoration of the mural in 2002, according to the Wall Street Journal. Currently, conservators Helen Im and Suyeon Kim are working on a small section that was recently damaged by water. Haring painted the colorful mural, which features his trademark dancing figures, during a three-day period in 1986, the Journal said. It was one of more than 50 murals he created during the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s in hospitals, day care centers, charity venues and orphanages. Hospital officials told the Journal that Haring’s mural at Woodhull, which he drew for free, is probably worth in the millions of dollars. The restoration project is costing about $20,000.
Councilman Williams Interested In City Public Advocate Position EAST FLATBUSH — City Councilman Jumaane Williams (D-East Flatbush), who was closely defeated by incumbent Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul in last month’s Democratic primary, has now set his sights on becoming New York City public advocate. If Letitia James, the city’s current public advocate and another Brooklynite, wins her race in November to become New York attorney general, as expected, she will leave her current position by the end of 2017. A special election will then be held to fill the public advocate’s seat, according to The New York Times. Williams sees a similarity between the two positions. “If I’m not public advocate for New York state, I could be the public advocate for New York City,” he told the Times. The public advocate presides over City Council meetings and can introduce legislation, but has few defined other responsibilities, the Times said. The job is often seen as a gateway position for mayoral hopefuls. Several other Democrats are interested in the public advocate position. One of them is Daniel O’Donnell, a Bronx assemblyman and brother of comedienne Rosie O’Donnell.
Brownstone to Beer Hall to Cellphones: Brownstoner Traces Brooklyn Building’s History FULTON MALL — Brownstoner traces the history of 385 Jay St., one of the few mid-19th century brownstones that survives in the Fulton Mall area. While these brownstones were slowly being replaced by stores, theaters and banks as the area became commercial in the late 19th century, some of them still survived but were converted to other uses. The building at 385 Jay St., like many others of its type, became a rooming house by 1879. Several businesses occupied the ground-floor space, including a cigar shop that was raided for illegal gambling in 1900. In 1908, Brownstoner says,
the entire building became Engelke’s Alt Deutsche Bier Stube, an old fashioned German beer hall. The original front was covered with a German-style stucco-and-timber exterior, according to Brownstoner. The top floor became an office, and Mrs. Engelke let a pro-women’s suffrage group meet here. Engelke’s wasn’t successful, and the building was sold in 1913, Brownstoner says. Since then, it has been occupied by a number of businesses, including an engraving firm, a real estate office, a bar and a natural foods store. Today, it’s occupied by a mobile phone store and a tax preparatory service.

%URRNO\Q:DU+HUR·V/RVW 0HGDOV7XUQ8SLQ&DOLIRUQLD By John Alexander %URRNO\Q(DJOH
It was Feb., 1968 — the month that Richard Nixon announced his candidacy for president, Vince Lombardi resigned as coach of the Green Bay Packers and “Green Tambourine” by the Lemon Pipers topped the charts on Feb. 9 — when 20-year-old James J. Brennan was killed by friendly fire in South Vietnam. Brennan lived on 86th Street in Bay Ridge and attended Fort Hamilton High School. After graduating, he studied for six months at the Academy of Aeronautics before he was drafted on Sept. 2, 1966 and served a full year in Vietnam. According to a story that appeared in the March 8, 1968 %URRNO\Q6SHFWDWRU, Brennan’s mother was informed by telegram that he was missing on Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day. Two days later the family received official notification that he was dead. Arrangements were handled by Fred Herbst and Sons Funeral Directors. Brennan was buried on Long Island following a mass at Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH). Brennan was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the Vietnam Service Medal and the Purple Heart, among others. Those medals and commendations were missing for years until Gary Farris, a Vietnam veteran himself and a 72-year-old resident of San Bernardino, California, happened to come upon them by chance. A family friend, Christopher Guillen, had purchased a box at a yard sale in California that contained an Army Commendation medal, two ribbon racks and a medallion identifying a combat infantryman. Farris was asked by Guillen’s brother if he could help identify the fallen soldier. Farris agreed and did some digging, eventually linking the medals to Brennan. “My son’s friend Sammy, who is Chris’ brother, came to
me, knowing how involved I was with the military and that I had served in Vietnam, thinking that I would be the one to find and return the medals to the family, not knowing that Brennan was killed in Vietnam,” Farris told this paper. “I was very surprised that the medals were found in a yard sale.” So Farris began trying to piece together how the medals of a Brooklyn soldier ended up in San Bernardino. Farris also found online articles about Brennan that originally appeared in the 6SHFWDWRU describing Brennan’s death and funeral arrangements. Further research led him to Dennis Callahan, a nephew of Brennan’s who lives in New Jersey. Farris sent him an email and Callahan responded. “After finding Brennan’s name on the Vietnam Virtual Wall.org, one of the postings — by Dennis Callahan — said ‘Feb. 09, 1968 was the death of my uncle James in Vietnam.’ The posting also gave an email address. I contacted him and he responded to my email. I told him what I had in my possession. He was a little skeptical at first, but listened to what I had to say.” Regarding the mystery of the medals ending up in California, Callahan told Farris that he recalled his grandmother’s New York apartment being robbed twice in the 1970s. The medals may have been stolen, ending up in California. Another scenario Callahan offered was that perhaps Brennan’s girlfriend may have taken some of his medals when she moved to the West Coast, although he did not know where or when. Farris also learned that Callahan’s daughter, First Lieutenant Nicole Callahan, was stationed at the National Guard Armory in Toms River, New Jersey. Farris found her address and sent her the medals. He was happy to learn that they’d arrived safely and that the family was

Interview with St. Ann’s ‘Oklahoma!’ Revival Star, Brooklyn Native Rebecca Naomi Jones

By Peter Stamelman Special to INBRooklyn
One of the iconic female roles in American musical theater is that of Laurey Williams in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s 1943 classic “Oklahoma!,” which is currently receiving a glorious revival — and selling out nightly — at St. Ann’s Warehouse in DUMBO. Without changing a word of the text, this striking and audacious production, directed by Daniel Fish and originally presented in 2015 as part of the Bard Summerscape series, is a reimagining of “Oklahoma!” for our present moment. Nowhere is this reinterpretation more evident than in the production’s approach to the role of Laurey. Unlike her predecessors, this Laurey has agency. The transformation is in no small measure made credible by the bold and nuanced performance of Rebecca
Naomi Jones. Ms. Jones, who has appeared in “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” “American Idiot,” “Passing Strange” and “Marie and Rosetta,” gives an astonishing performance. Her Laurey combines an independent streak with an aching vulnerability. She fully inhabits the role, subtly registering Laurey’s confusion and uncertainty as she navigates her attraction to both Curly, the cowhand, and Jud, the hired hand working her farm. Jones has the range and emotional dexterity to strike this daredevil balance. Before a recent evening performance, I spoke with her in a one of St. Ann’s cavernous rehearsal spaces. Below are edited excerpts of our conversation. Brooklyn Eagle: How familiar with “Oklahoma!” were you? Rebecca Naomi Jones: Not very actually, which I suppose is strange for somebody like myself who does musical theater for a living. Of course, I was familiar with many of the songs — “People Will Say We’re in Love,” “I Can’t Say No,” “The Surrey with the Fringe on Top” — but I wasn’t really that familiar with the story. I had seen the 2002 Broadway revival starring Patrick Wilson, but funnily enough I didn’t remember a lot about it even though I did love it. In fact, I remember loving it so much. And yet my memory of it now is “Oh What a Beautiful Morning.” I remember being so moved by that opening number. That set me up for loving the production as a whole. Eagle: How big a transition has it been for you going from post-modern musicals like “Passing Strange, “American Idiot” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” to one of the pillars of the golden age of American musicals? RNJ: Honestly it hasn’t felt like a huge shift for me because this production really feels like rehearsing a new musical. Because Daniel Fish, the director, wanted to do something so fresh and innovative with it. Of course, it was not as though we had the writer in the room and he’s making changes; but it really did feel like we were digging into the text in the way that you do with new work. The way we crafted this production did not at all feel like “plugging and playing.” Or like we were trying to do a version that has worked before. In a way, we felt like we’re going to make this our own. Eagle: Did Daniel encourage you to explore and investigate Laurey’s conflicting impulses and emotions? RNJ: Yes, absolutely, that’s a huge part of what we’ve done in this production. To explore what Laurey really wants. What’s so funny is that I’ve had a couple of friends say to me “I wish you had more to say in certain moments” and I think that’s so exciting because what it means to me is that the audience is seeing that a living, breathing, present human being is feeling something and has an opinion about something, beyond simply what’s in the text. So that’s really exciting.
Rebecca Naomi Jones as Laurey in “Oklahoma!”
Eagle: How aware is Laurey of her own sexual attraction to both Curly and Jud? Or is it all a jumble of confusion? RNJ: In my opinion she’s aware of the attraction but is not comfortable with it. I think particularly the attraction and connection she feels to Jud is quite scary for her, especially because Jud, as she has come to know, has something inside him that feels like it could go off at any minute. And yet there is also something special and tender about him that she also understands.
And I think she shares Jud’s dark world view, which I think also scares her. She’s more comfortable with her attraction to Curly but even there she has to adhere to the restraints of 1902 society, a society not familiar with or open to the concept of women’s sexuality. It is a society that doesn’t think it’s appropriate or acceptable for a woman to have those choices or want those things. Eagle: And she herself is not sure what those things are, right? As when she says to the peddler “I want things I can’t tell you about — not only things to look at and hold in your hands. Things to happen to you. Things so nice, if they ever did happen to you, your heart would quit beating.” Do you think she herself even realizes what she’s talking about? RNJ: I think she knows some little morsel of what she’s talking about. But she also knows that there’s so much more that’s possi-

ble to happen to, and for, her. She doesn’t quite know what it is, but she wants it. Eagle: But she’s also a little scared of it. RNJ: That’s right. I think that’s why Laurey is such an interesting character. Because she knows so much and she’s strong in her opinions, but there’s also a lot of fear. Eagle: This is your first “golden age” musical. Are you eager now to explore some others in the future? RNJ: Possibly. It depends on the production and the director and what that director wants to get out of it and get at by doing it. I think the production we’re doing now is asking new questions of this 75-year-old musical and what this musical was saying about the state of the country then and exploring how relevant it is to be asking those questions and exploring those answers now. That’s one of the factors that make it so exciting to be part of this production. Eagle: Finally, a Brooklyn question: Still living in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens? RNJ: I sure am. And I still love living so close to the park — although I’m so busy I haven’t had time to take my accustomed morning coffee under the trees.

Dr. Steven Mendelsohn takes press and community leaders on a tour of the second-floor waiting room at Zwanger-Pesiri’s Cobble Hill office.
Noted Long Island Radiology provider Zwanger-Pesiri continued its entry into New York City with a formal ribbon cutting of its first Brooklyn location at 205 Smith St., on the corner of Smith and Baltic streets in Cobble Hill. Zwanger-Pesiri CEO Dr. Steven Mendelsohn pointed to the dozens of chairs that filled the center’s second-floor waiting room: “Most of these chairs will never have anyone sitting in them,” he said. “Our average wait times, when the patient pre-registers, is down to three minutes. Seven minutes when patient comes in without pre-registering.” Founded in 1953 by Dr Jerome Zwanger in Massapequa, Long Island, and later joined by Dr E.J. Pesiri, the practice grew to numerous locations in Nassau and Suffolk Counties before moving into its first New York City offices in Queens County in 2017. “We’ve studied crowd management,” Dr Mendelsohn said while conducting a tour of the extensive second-floor exam rooms. “We took lessons from Disneyland, for example, in how to manage flow and wait times.” “In almost all of our offices there is a separate waiting area for mammography and breast ultrasound, where there are no men allowed,” he said. “This allows for religious and cultural preferences in the case of Orthodox Jewish women and Muslim women, for them to be more comfortable.” Continued on page 5INB

Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology at 205 Smith St. Continued from page 4INB Beaming like a proud papa, Dr Mendelsohn showed press and community leaders ZwangerPesiri’s new Siemans MRI, which cost more than $2 million. “Hospital for Special Surgery is one of the premier orthopedic centers in the US. When a patient comes in with an MRI from nearly every other imaging center, HSS repeats it on site,” he said. “When they bring an MRI from Zwanger-Pesiri, they don’t have to repeat it. And we’re able to upload the results to HSS directly. We have a quality second to none.” Zwanger-Perisi radiologists typically read and report the results of a scan within 24-48 hours. “Sometimes patients ask can they watch TV during the scan,” Mendelsohn continued. “But there’s no time. MRI has come a long way from the first standing MRIs of the ’80s. Today we have them in and out usually in five minutes or less.” As the tour continued into the mammography room, Mendelsohn said, “If you’re at a center that doesn’t offer 3D mammography, run away, because they’re using old technology. 3D mammography is about 40 to 50 percent more efficient in detecting and locating tumors of the breast.”

Zwanger-Pesiri currently offers free mammography to women with an annual income of $40,000 or less. Plans for expansion include an additional Brooklyn location at Eastern Parkway and Utica Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, an office in the Bronx and, eventually, Harlem, which would be its first Manhattan office. “African-American and Latino communities have been grossly underserved over the years,” Mendelsohn said. “The Bronx, in particular, has been lacking. They have one quality center, at Montifiore. That’s it.” “In Manhattan, there are tremendous opportunities,” he concluded. “Right now it takes four to six weeks to schedule an MRI. We plan to tell urologists, endocrinologists, orthopedic surgeons: ‘You want an MRI? Send the patient over. We’ll have them back in your office with a report in hand in two hours.’” In addition to MRI, C-T, ultrasound, radiology and mammography, Zwanger-Pesiri’s Cobble Hill office offers a complete range of diagnostic services that include DEXA bone density, breast biopsy, PET, cardiac stress test, MUGA scan, heartflow and nuclear medicine services. Hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Breastfeeding Does NOT Have to Hurt By: Richard M. Rosenfeld, MD, MPH, MBA
Photo courtesy of Suny Downstate
s a newly-minted pediatric ear, nose, and throat (ENT specialist) who entered practice in 1992, I rarely saw newborns with breastfeeding difficulties in my office sessions. Now hardly a day goes by without at least one referral, with some sessions having 10-20% of the visits for breastfeeding problems. Why the dramatic change? Because when the right office procedure is done on the right baby, breastfeeding can change from a nightmare (with pain, nipple cracking, and prolonged or interrupted feeds) to a joyous and pleasant experience that benefits both mother and baby. There is absolutely no reason that new mothers should have to suffer when breastfeeding, or worse yet have to stop entirely. Breastfeeding is recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and other health experts, because it reduces the frequency of colds, ear infections, and sinus infections, while boosting your child’s immune system and reducing the need for antibiotics. Unfortunately, some mothers have trouble breastfeeding because their baby’s tongue, upper lip or both are restricted (“tied”). Tongue tie, which can affect up to 10% of newborns, is the most common cause of breastfeeding difficulties, because it prevents the baby from lifting and sticking out the tongue, both of which are needed for effective feeding.
Richard M. Rosenfeld, MD, MPH, MBA
An anterior (in the front) tongue tie is often readily visible as a thin band of tissue that tethers the tongue to the lower gum, causing the tip of the tongue to indent (heart-shape) when protruded. A posterior (in the back) tongue tie is harder to see, and often requires lifting the tongue with fingers to appreciate the tightness and restriction. Upper lip tie, which is present to some degree in all newborns, can be seen when lifting the upper lip off the gum. Most upper lip tie goes away on its own and does not affects feeding. For some babies, however, the lip cannot form a good seal with the breast, causing the mother to keep rolling it out. Other problems may include clicking noises with feeding, excessive air entry, seepage of milk out the sides of the mouth, and a callous (hard skin) forming in the central lip or along the whole edge. Now for the good news: if your baby has breastfeeding problems caused by tongue tie, upper lip tie, or both, these problems can be safely, quickly, and painlessly fixed during a brief office visit. In about 80-90% of cases mothers will notice an immediate and significant improvement in latch and breastfeeding. There is little to no discomfort afterwards. Bottom line: before giving up on breastfeeding your newborn baby, please call us for an expedited appointment. There is an excellent chance we can help improve the quality of life for both you and your baby. —— Dr. Richard Rosenfeld is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and is fellowship trained in Pediatric Otolaryngology.

a group of five artists, each of whom are engaged in varied yet distinct forms of painterly heresy. Apophatic meditations on the modern canon which endeavor to honor tradition by undermining, over-saturating, or inverting it. From the subtle to the sublime, that which was once deemed non-objective by Malevich, has become radicalized into a planar lucidity of the material object-in-itself.

administration’s Muslim ban and subsequent restraining orders move closer to the Supreme Court, outgoing Teen Council Members identified immigration as the timely and broad topic for 2018. In responding to their mandate, 2018 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. Council members grappled with ongoing, unifying themes related to living away from the land of one’s birth— language, cultural fluidity, code switching, and American immigration law and policing. The resultant exhibition, Brooklyn: A New Home, a New Life, features stories about historical Brooklynites: Harriet Judson, John Roebling, Nathan Handwerker, and Shirley Chisholm, as well as Ravi Ragbir, a contemporary immigration activist. The people featured are not all immigrants, but each represent a different lens into the story of American immigrants, and show, without a doubt, how Brooklyn has been shaped by the many international ties within its vibrant and varied communities When: Wednesdays-Sundays through May 2019, 12 – 5 p.m. Where: Brooklyn Heights/ Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont Street)

Guild for Exceptional Children Celebrates its 60th Anniversary BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
The Guild for Exceptional Children (GEC) held its annual autumn gala on Friday, Oct. 26 at El Caribe Country Club in Mill Basin. GEC, a nonprofit agency that assists developmentally disabled children and adults, honored some of Brooklyn’s most distinguished civic leaders. WABC-TV/ “Eyewitness News” anchor Ken Rosato served as master of ceremonies. GEC Compliance Officer Caroline Mansuetto welcomed guests, including elected officials, community leaders and members of the GEC community. GEC Executive Director and CEO Paul Cassone called it a memorable event. “We at the Guild are most appreciative of our community support and recognize that we could not succeed without it,” Cassone told this paper. “We are also thrilled at the turnout of nearly 400 for our 60th anniversary gala. Funds that we raise will be directed to our ‘Building Fund’ which pays for renovations – large and small – that help make our facilities more accessible, comfortable and user-friendly for the people in our care.” This year’s GEC Legacy Award was presented to the Charles A. Mastronardi Foundation, a philanthropic foundation whose purpose is to support education, health, social and human services. The GEC Founder’s Award was presented to noted news journalist and television host Geraldo Rivera and the GEC’s Philanthropic Award was given to the Rotary Club of Verrazano, a civic organization that performs good works throughout the community. Rotary Club of Verrazano member Ralph Succar said it was a great honor and pleasure for his organization to be recognized. “Tonight was a special night for me as an ambassador to the Guild and a member of the Rotary,” Succar said. “The Rotary demonstrates an outstanding commitment to community and service to people in need. It’s truly an honor to be recognized by the Guild.” Other award recipients were William Slow, a former educator and community

recipient John Quaglione echoed Golden’s sentiments. “The turnout, the energy and the love in the room at the Guild for Exceptional Children’s 60th anniversary says all you need to know,” Quaglione said. “The GEC is beloved and treasured by so many, for they have truly made the quality of life for so many so much better over the years. Each and every day, they give hope and serve a truly noble mission.” Former GEC President Arlene Rutuelo was extremely pleased by the large attendance. “It truly warms my heart to see almost 400 of the Bay Ridge community attending our 60th Anniversary Guild for Exceptional Children Gala this year,” Rutuelo told this paper. “Children and adults with developmental disabilities are celebrated, genuinely loved and cared for. I am so proud to continue working with this board and administration to build brighter futures for each person in our care.”

Eye on Downtown
Take a Stroll to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn, Part One ABOVE: Pedestrians stroll down Willoughby Street near the corner of Lawrence Street.
DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN Downtown Brooklyn, a rapidly-changing Brooklyn neighborhood, has played a significant part in the borough’s history as a whole. The first European settlers attracted to the site were Dutch farmers and tradespeople who acquired the land from the Lenape Indians. The first superintendent of Brooklyn was then appointed in 1625. In 1646, the settlers who lived close to the East River were granted a charter by the Dutch West India Company and named their town Breuckelen.
Rowboats and sailboats shuttled travelers between Fulton Ferry Landing and Manhattan as early as 1642, but when Robert Fulton introduced the steam-powered ferry to the area in 1814, the neighborhood began to change. With the ferries’ immense popularity, thousands of Brooklynites crossed the East River each day by the middle of the 19th century. Business owners saw this as an opportunity and began to open up shops around the area, which were met by a growing population. The City of Brooklyn was chartered in 1834 and a parcel of land was designated for a city hall. What is known today as Brooklyn Borough Hall was completed in 1849.

Then after completion of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883, Downtown Brooklyn became even more of an energetic commercial district. However, a retailing downturn in the late 1950s and 1960s from economic and social upheaval caused businesses to close. To win back some shoppers, the Fulton Street Mall began construction in 1977. Downtown Brooklyn then began to expand rapidly and rezoning in 2004 has led to the construction of high-rises, co-ops and condominiums that have reshaped the Brooklyn skyline. — Norm Goldstein

Take a Stroll to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn, Part One See Willoughby Street Skyscrapers and Photogenic Fort Greene Park By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
By Lore INBrooklyn
Wanna walk to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn? Willoughby’s one fine way to go. For part of your stroll, you’ll notice this photogenic thoroughfare is called Willoughby Street. On the far side of Fort Greene Park, it becomes Willoughby Avenue. The street is lined with eye-catching new apartment towers and old-fashioned rowhouses. It passes by Pratt Institute, whose landscaped grounds, decorated with sculptures, are open to the public. It slices through Clinton Hill, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick. If you’re an obsessive photo taker, you’ll need to spend more than one day on this trek. We’re splitting up our story about this walk into installments to maximize the number of pictures we can show you. This is Part One.
Your Stroll Starts on a Public Plaza
How can you resist a street that starts with a Shake Shack and a Greek restaurant? The Downtown Brooklyn public plaza where Willoughby Street begins is flanked by a property that houses the first Shake Shack that opened in Brooklyn and a Renaissance Revivalstyle building where Greek/Mediterranean restaurant CAVA is under construction. By the way, the Willoughby Street plaza is bordered by that mammoth multi-lane highway called Adams Street. Shake Shack’s Brooklyn debut took place in December 2011. Restaurant maven Danny Meyer’s high-end burger joint has been going strong ever since at this address, which is 409 Fulton St. Michael Chera’s Allied Property Group owns the two-story building, city Finance Department records indicate.
A sign in a window at 345 Adams St., the building on the other side of the Willoughby Street plaza, says CAVA is now hiring workers. CAVA, which childhood friends Ike Grigoropoulos, Dimitri Moshovitis and Ted Xenohristos founded, is expected to have 75 locations by the end of this year, the company’s website says. Thirteen-story 345 Adams St. has frontage on Willoughby and Pearl streets. It’s divided into two commercial condominiums with different owners. The office unit belongs to the City of New York. The ground- and second-floor retail unit belongs to Muss Development, which bought it from the city Economic Development Corp. for $5.77 million in 2008, Finance Department records show. Muss Development’s property portfolio includes the nearby Brooklyn Renaissance Plaza and New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. The real estate firm built Oceana Condominium & Club in Brighton Beach.

HOW IT GOT ITS NAME, DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN The “downtown” section of any city or town is considered its main business section. Downtown Brooklyn is more a civic center, as well as a center of education and commerce. And “center” it is, in the midst of Brooklyn Heights, Vinegar Hill, DUMBO, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, Park Slope and Fort Greene. It developed out of the old Dutch town of Breuckelen, settled by Dutch farmers and tradesmen who lived close to the East River. Like so many other neighborhoods in Brooklyn, it was transportation that was the catalyst in its growth. First came Fulton’s steam ferry, then the bridges, Brooklyn (1883) and Manhattan (1909), then the subway. There are 13 subway lines (13!) in Downtown Brooklyn today. Transportation brought people there and created the need for shops, houses, services, banks and financial offices. When Breuckelen became the City of Brooklyn in 1834, a parcel of land one mile from the waterfront was designated as the site for its City Hall. It was completed in 1849 and remodeled in 1895 after a fire. After Brooklyn’s consolidation into the City of New York in 1898, it became Borough Hall. The main Brooklyn branch of the U.S. Post Office was completed in 1891 and the Brooklyn Eagle built its new headquarters a block or so away in 1892, in the midst of numerous federal and state courthouses (thus, Court Street). Urban renewal projects beginning in the 1930s created new housing projects and razed the Fulton Street elevated subway that had brought with it poor housing and pollution. After World War II, a public improvement program meant new buildings for state and city agencies, the widening of streets in the area, and more residential housing construction. New York’s first pedestrian shopping mall, the Fulton Street Mall, was created in 1977 and the MetroTech business and education center was formed in 1992. After rezoning in 2004, new high-rises, co-ops and condominiums changed not only Downtown Brooklyn but also the look of the Brooklyn skyline. — Norm Goldstein

But back to Brooklyn Point, which Gary Barnett’s Extell Development is building. This under-construction tower is part of City Point, a 1.8 million-square-foot mixed-use project with commercial space occupied by Trader Joe’s, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, retailers Century 21 and Target and a popular food hall where Katz’s Deli has an outpost. Architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates designed Brooklyn Point. It will have 458 apartments and more — Continued from page 22INB — than 40,000 square feet of amenities — including an indoor saltwater swimming pool, its marketing website says. The last time we checked the website, asking prices for available condos ranged from $847,620 for a studio to $3,081,330 for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom unit. After you walk past Brooklyn Point, you’ll cross Flatbush Avenue Extension, which is a multi-lane highway. Out on its median strip, there’s a bench where you can sit and take in your surroundings.

Are So Fine
Near the intersection of Willoughby and Jay streets, you’ll find the Old Brooklyn Fire Headquarters. The Roman brick, sandstone and terra cotta building at 365 Jay St. is adorned with arches and turrets — and has a pyramid-topped watchtower that fire-spotters used. The Romanesque Revival-style building was constructed in 1892. Prominent architect Frank Freeman designed this individual city landmark, which has been converted into a residential building where all the apartments are affordablehousing units. Another individual city landmark is located a block away. It’s the New York and New Jersey Telephone and Telegraph Building. This Beaux-Arts beauty was constructed in 1897 and 1898. The light-tan brick, limestone and terra cotta building has a curved edge on its corner at the intersection of Lawrence and Willoughby streets. The name “Telephone Building” is carved into the cornice over an entrance door, which is surrounded by molding decorated with depictions of old-fashioned phones. The designer of 81 Willoughby St. was Mexican-born architect Rudolphe Laurence Daus, who studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. The phone company departed eons ago. ASA College and various office tenants now occupy the building.

There are lots of other terrific old-fashioned buildings on these Willoughby Street blocks, such as the Oratory Church of St. Boniface. But expect to see numerous high-rise residential towers. The 2004 rezoning of Downtown Brooklyn turned the area into a development hotbed. For instance, AvalonBay Communities constructed a market-rate rental-apartment building on the corner of Willoughby and Duffield streets. Tenants started moving in there in 2015. This developer markets the units in the 58-story building under two different brand names with two different price points— AVA DoBro and Avalon Willoughby Square. The apartments on the tower’s top 27 floors are included in Avalon Willoughby Square, which has an entrance at 214 Duffield St. The apartments in the rest of the building comprise AVA DoBro, which has an entrance at 100 Willoughby St.
Brooklyn Point Is Rising High
A couple blocks away, another tower is rising skyward. The construction site is at 138 Willoughby St. This condo development is called Brooklyn Point. When completed, it will be 720 feet tall, which will make it a skyscraper to be reckoned with although not the borough’s tallest. The tower that’s being built at nearby 9 DeKalb Ave. alongside landmarked Dime Savings Bank will be 1,066 feet tall.
The report also says Joseph H. Townsend constructed 210 Willoughby Ave., aka 179 Washington Park, around 1866. It’s part of an eye-pleasing row of seven French Second Empire-style brownstones. The first block of Willoughby Avenue ends at the intersection of Carlton Avenue. The homes on all four corners of this intersection are picturesque.
Right This Way to St. Edwards Street On the far side of Flatbush Avenue Extension, you’ll walk past LIU Brooklyn’s green lawn where people take their dogs out to frolic. A couple blocks away, Willoughby Street comes to an end at St. Edwards Street — which is one of the boundaries of Fort Greene Park. The 33-acre park has no streets in it, so you follow winding footpaths through it. There’s a 100-foot-wide granite staircase that leads to the top of a hill. The Prison Ship Martyrs Monument is located at its summit. The monument is a 149-foot-tall Doric column designed by distinguished architecture firm McKim, Mead and White. President William Howard Taft dedicated it in 1908. It stands above a crypt containing the remains of more than 11,500 Patriots who died while imprisoned on British ships anchored in Wallabout Bay during the Revolutionary War.
Walt Whitman Championed Fort Greene Park’s Creation
By the way, McKim, Mead and White also designed the park’s comfort station, which is shaped like a Classical temple with lots of columns. The park is part of the Fort Greene Historic District, which was designated in 1978. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report, written that year, says the park was created thanks largely to relentless campaigning by Walt Whitman in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in the 1840s. The renowned poet was the paper’s editor at that time. Park construction was completed in 1850 “after it had been fully established that the residents of the neighborhood could no longer keep their hogs on the premises,” the designation report says. Wow. Washington Park is what it was first called — which is why the street that serves as the park’s eastern border now has that name. Here’s another fun fact about Fort Greene Park: Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux redesigned it in the 1860s. The famous landscape architects, as of course you know, designed Central Park and Prospect Park.
Landmarked Houses at the Park’s Edge
On the far side of Fort Greene Park, Willoughby reappears. But now it’s called Willoughby Avenue. The homes along this edge of the park are part of the landmarked district. T.B. Jackson built the Italianate rowhouse at 1-9 Willoughby Ave., which is also known as 176 Washington Park, around 1868, the Fort Greene Historic District designation report says.

Brandeis Society President Speaks Out Brooklyn Law Community On Pittsburgh Tragedy Embraces Centuries-Old Red Mass Tradition
The following statement was sent to INBrooklyn from Andrew Fallek, president of the Brooklyn Brandeis Society. The Brooklyn Brandeis Society, named for a past Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court Louis Brandeis, focuses on the intersection of Judaism and law. The BBS “is a group of Jewish judges, attorneys and other members of the legal community who have come together as an organization to celebrate the culture and heritage of Jewish people,” according to a 2015 Brooklyn Eagle article by Rob Abruzzese. The Brooklyn Brandeis Society thanks the Pittsburgh law enforcement personnel who risked their lives to help the congregants of the Tree of Life Synagogue and we pray that those who were injured have a speedy recovery. The Jewish people need no reminder that in times of discontent and resentment, Jews are often the first, but by no means the last, target of anger. As we approach the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht, a night when angry Germans, spurred on by the spread of false and pernicious stories about Jews, destroyed the properties of their Jewish neighbors, we are reminded that words matter, particularly words of hate, and that even in a land of free speech such as ours, neither government nor individuals can afford to turn a blind eye to these words. If someone tells others, either on the internet or in person, that they wish to hurt a particular person or group, we should take them at their word. But listening is not enough. As lawyers, it is our duty to work proactively, within the frame-

The Brooklyn judicial and legal community continued a tradition that goes back nearly 1,000 years and was originally brought to New York by Cardinal Patrick Hayes in 1928. Last Thursday, October 25, nearly 200 members gathered at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint James in Downtown Brooklyn for the annual Red Mass. The Catholic Lawyers Guild of Kings County and the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn host this annual tradition, but lawyers, jurists and court employees of all faiths attend with their colleagues. “The venue for the mass is in a Catholic church, but it is important to note that this is an event that is meant and welcoming to people of all faiths and backgrounds,” said Dominic Famulari, president of the Catholic Lawyers Guild. “We come away from it each year fortified in our faith and humanity as well as reminded of what our mission is as a legal community – to do right by everyone. “The Red Mass is like the kick-off of football season or opening day of the baseball season,” Famulari said. “As everyone returns from summer vacations, the Red
Mass is designed to inspire and remind lawyers, judges and court personnel that we are all responsible to achieve justice for everyone. I think that the Very Reverend Patrick J. Keating, Esq. brought this home in his eloquent homily.” Keating, who is also deputy chief executive officer of Catholic Charities, has long been part of this event going back years. However, becoming a 2017 graduate of the Brooklyn Law School, and being admitted to the New York State Bar Association last December, have given him a new appreciation for the event. “I may be a little biased being in Brooklyn, but there is something unique about the Brooklyn court system and that is a sense of family, more than simply colleagues,” Keating said. “I have witnessed this as you have gathered for funerals, in your concern for other members of the court, how you genuinely cheer the ups and downs and come together to mourn, to pray and to celebrate.” Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio concelebrated the Red Mass with Keating and Fr. Peter Purpura. Famulari did a reading during mass along with Gregory Cerchione and Joseph Rosato, the president of the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn.

Members of the local Jewish and interfaith communities packed the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue as they joined sister congregations across the country on Mon., Oct. 29 to mourn the victims of the shooting at Tree of Life Or L’Simcha congregation. The shooting took place on Saturday morning, Oct. 27, during a Shabbat service and baby-naming rite, according to various news reports. No children were among those reported among the dead or injured. Tree of Life is in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill section, which has a sizeable Jewish community. The 11 killed were considered to be anchor members of Tree of Life: Rose Mallinger, 97; Melvin Wax, 88; Bernice Simon, 84, and husband Sylvan Simon, 86; Joyce Fienberg, 75; Daniel Stein, 71; Irving Younger, 69; Richard Gottfried, 65; Jerry Rabinowitz, 66; Cecil Rosenthal, 59 and his brother, David Rosenthal, 54. Senior Rabbi Serge Lippe, in announcing the Brooklyn service for martyrs pointed out, “I know this is not a word we use a lot, but it is the correct term here.” The prayers were from the traditional service for martyrs. Prayers were also offered for the four police officers and two SWAT team members who were wounded. Lippe and Associate Rabbi Molly Kane led the service. Brooklyn Heights’ closeknit interfaith clergy group has gathered several times over the past year in the wake of mass shootings and other urgent occa-
sions. Among the clergy participating in Monday’s service were the Rev. Dr. Brett Younger of Plymouth Church; Pastor Adriene Thorne of First Presbyterian Church; Rabbi Hanniel Levenson of Congregation Mount Sinai; Bishop Gregory Mansour and Fr. Dominique Hanna, both of the Maronite Eparchy of Brooklyn and Our Lady of Lebanon Cathedral; Imam Abdallah Allam of Dawood Mosque; the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson of Grace Church; Monsignor Guy Massie of Sacred Hearts-St. Stephen Church in Carroll Gardens; Fr. John Denaro of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity (Episcopal) Church. Massie is also the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn’s Vicar for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs.

TOTA, Carmela Mercurio -- Passed away peacefully on Oct. 25, 2018 from heart failure. She was three weeks
shy of her 100th birthday and looking forward to the celebration planned for her. Mel, the youngest of six children, was born in Greenwich Village on Nov. 15, 1918 to Marianna (Rossi) and Nicholas Mercurio, and lived there until the family moved to Brooklyn in the late 1930s. She acquired her undergraduate degree from Hunter College, and then moved on to graduate studies. Mel began her lifetime commitment to education as a teacher in the Syosset and then Hempstead school districts on Long Island. In the late 1950s, she began a career with the New York City Board of Education as a teacher at P.S. 67 near the Navy Yard in Brooklyn. After some years teaching at P.S. 67, Mel accepted a position at Board of Education headquarters and helped to create a program called “Higher Horizons.” She eventually became director of the Office of Monitoring of Funded Programs. She was admired by her colleagues for her intellect, humor and ability. In 1972, she

ON OCT. 29, 1929, the Eagle reported, “Stocks crashed again today under a deluge of liquidation which the largest concentrated financial powers in the world were unable to stem until it had done irreparable damage. A feeble rally soon after the opening was swept aside when the sluice gates of liquidation were opened by traders in all parts of the world. High assurances from Washington that all was well, similar statements from the greatest industrialists and capitalists in the country, failed to stem the hysteria of badly hurt speculators and investors. Only after three hours of panicky trading in which more than 10,000,000 shares were dumped, did the market show any signs of rallying. Then it came back quickly. The leading bankers of the United States were again in session at the offices of J.P. Morgan & Co. during the morning. Added to their number was Owen D. Young, the world-renowned economic adviser and a leader of corporations controlling billions of dollars. After the meeting, which ended at 1 p.m. to be resumed later in the day, no statement was issued, but it was understood that assurance was given that the bottom had been seen.” ON OCT. 29, 1952, the Eagle reported, “The Bay Ridge Catholic and public school children will hold their outdoor ‘Halloween Art Studio’ with the warmest approval of the community. The age old urge of kids to express their artistic talents on windows around Halloween time won’t have to be postponed until sundown this year. The most humorous and decorative scenes will be awarded cash prizes and all the participants will receive palette pins from the 86th Street Board of Trade. The project was originated last June and is under the sponsorship of the Bay Ridge Community Council. At a pre-judging contest held at Fort Hamilton High School, 86 of the 400 sketches submitted were chosen to appear on the windows of stores along 86th Street, Fourth and Fifth avenues between 85th and 87th Street.”

ON OCT. 30, 1951, the Eagle reported, “Las Vegas, Oct. 30 (UP) — The largest atomic explosion of the second series of Frenchman’s Flat tests rocked the Nevada desert today. It threw up a boiling, purple mushroom cloud that was visible in this resort city one minute after its brilliant flash momentarily blotted out the morning sun. It was by far the largest and most vicious-appearing of the October blasts. It appeared to be almost identical with an air burst over the target fleet off Bikini Island in a previous test series in the Pacific. But it was not heard in Las Vegas, 90 miles from the test site. The last explosion of the first Nevada tests last February broke windows in downtown Las Vegas and was seen for 500 miles in the pre-dawn sky.” ON OCT. 30, 1902, the Eagle reported, “There was quite a commotion on Surf Avenue, Coney Island, yesterday afternoon, in which there participated an elephant, a policeman, a woman and a young man who is employed as an attendant to the elephant. When the smoke had cleared away the elephant had broken loose and was making a general survey of Coney Island, the woman was shouting that she had been insulted and the policeman was making his way to the police station, eight blocks away, with the young man attendant. The young man, who said he was William Alt, was charged with disorderly conduct, and when arraigned before Magistrate Voorhees in the Coney Island court this morning he pleaded not guilty and was held in $300 bonds to await a further hearing on Wednesday next. The elephant was captured and was taken in charge by the police for a time, but was later taken to its quarters at Luna Park … It appears that the big elephant is Tops, the man-killing animal which was purchased by Paul Boynton early last spring for exhibition purposes. Tops was one of the attractions with Forepaugh’s circus for a time, but after he killed a man in this borough and continued to make things unpleasant, the owners sold him to Boynton.”
You Should Know This • Sarah Josepha Hale, the woman who actually wrote the classic song “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” convinced President Lincoln in 1863 to make Thanksgiving a national holiday, after writing letters for 17 years campaigning for this to happen. • Thanksgiving is the reason for TV dinners! In 1953, Swanson had so much extra turkey (260 tons) that a salesman told them they should package it onto aluminum trays with other sides like sweet potatoes — and the first TV dinner was born!

Autumn Rain and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge A cruise ship called Norwegian Breakaway passes beneath the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge.

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain Telling me just what a fool I’ve been. — From “Rhythm of the Rain” by the Cascades If your favorite color is gray, this is your lucky day. In these new rainswept photos of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge and Shore Road Promenade, autumnal shades and tones of misty gray predominate. The nor’easter that rolled through Brooklyn over the weekend painted the Bay Ridge shoreline with these soft hues. Smart people stayed indoors to drink hot chocolate and binge-watch Netflix. Only a foolish few wandered around taking pictures on Bay Ridge’s windy waterfront. They were rewarded, though — with a glimpse of a cruise ship called Norwegian Breakaway as it sailed beneath the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge. And moments later, a second beautiful cruise

ship, Anthem of the Seas, passed beneath the bridge on its way to the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The two proud vessels brightened the gloomy view for a few moments. Otherwise, gray was the winning hue, even underfoot in puddles on the promenade that captured colorless reflections of nearby trees and lampposts. You had to walk across the pedestrian bridge over the Belt Parkway and head into Bay Ridge’s side streets to glimpse bright patches of color. Here and there, a few trees had leaves that have turned autumnal shades of yellow and red. The iconic Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, which was built a half-century ago, recently had the spelling of its name changed. Now it matches that of Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano. He discovered New York Harbor in 1524. Until a recently passed bill corrected the spelling, it had been the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge with one Z. The mistaken spelling was caused by a typo in a construction contract, or so the story goes.

For the second straight year, Sunset Park kids were treated to a Halloween extravaganza at Beyond at Liberty View and Industry City. Held on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the event â€” which featured plenty of tricks and treats â€” hosted around 3,000 children who showed up in costume with their parents. â€œWith our many wide open spaces and ongoing, family-focused programming, Industry City has become a great place for families to have fun on the weekend,â€? said Cristal Rivera, chief of staff and director of community engagement at Industry City. â€œHundreds of families came out for the Kids Halloween Parade and Rock and Roll Playhouse this past Saturday.â€? Director of Brand Integration, Video and Promotions at Bed Bath & Beyond Bari Fagin called the day another success. â€œDespite the rain, it was an amazing day, bigger and better than last year,â€? she said. â€œWe had families in full costume with amazing children all day. When the raincoats came off and the umbrellas were closed, creatures and characters all came out to have fun. It was great and amazing, especially the little ones being in full costume.â€? Even parents got in on the action, with families dressing as characters from â€œThe Incrediblesâ€? and â€œThe Wizard of Oz.â€? â€œWhat makes it so special is that people really came to a Halloween party,â€? Fagin said. â€œThey just didnâ€™t come to trick or treat. They came to enjoy themselves, to be together in a safe place where a lot of people knew each other. We had people who had come to our first Halloween event who were thrilled to come to our second and the weather did not
deter anyone.â€? Unfortunately, the scheduled Halloween parade from Beyond to Industry City was cancelled due to the weather. However, there were plenty of activities to keep attendees busy. â€œThe children and their families went back and forth to Industry City throughout the day and we had Captain America in attendance for the children, which they loved,â€? Fagin said. â€œWe had a pumpkin patch where they also had pictures taken and then we had a Harry Potter corner this year where they took selfies in front of a banner and got some activity sheets featuring the characters.â€? Kids also trick or treated throughout the two buildings, stopping in also at Saks Off Fifth and Micro Center. A Halloween mural was painted live in front of the children by Michela Muserra with attendees given coloring sheets so they could color the mural on their own when they went home. Although a new tradition, the event has become a significant one according to Fagin. â€œI think itâ€™s a win-win for everybody,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s a win for us and itâ€™s a win for Industry City and most of all, itâ€™s a win for the neighborhoods around us in Brooklyn. People came from far and wide in Brooklyn. Last year, we didnâ€™t know what to expect. We look to do more next year. Hopefully we started a tradition that goes on for years and years to come.â€? Families will be happy to know that the fun will continue. Looking ahead, Rivera promised, â€œThe upcoming holiday season will include a wide range of family-centric, seasonal programs here at Industry City, and weâ€™re looking forward to sharing that with the community.â€?
