Greenpoint gallery The Boiler is closing. The theme of its last exhibit? Death By Sara Bosworth Greenpoint Gazette
The first day of spring brought sun and 50-degree temperatures to Greenpoint. But inside The Boiler, a gallery on North 14th Street, it is raining. Piping spits down raindrops onto the set of a staged living room in a building, which is, as indicated by its name, a former factory boiler room. It has been raining inside The Boiler for a month now. The red fabric of the couch is discolored; the books on the shelves are permanently warped. Muddy footprints dot the white wood floors. The living room, designed by conceptual artist Stephen Kaltenbach, is the first three-dimensional installation based on a drawing by Kaltenbach of the same name: “What Death
Does.” This piece feels at home in the otherwise empty industrial space, and comes to the gallery with apt timing, as Kaltenbach’s exhibit will likely be The Boiler’s last. After 10 years and roughly 75 exhibits of large-scale sculptures, paintings and installations, the gallery is moving out. In its inception, The Boiler was an additional space for the owners behind Pierogi Gallery, founded in Williamsburg in 1994 by Susan Swensen and Joe Amrhein. Swensen and Amrhein moved Pierogi Gallery to the Lower East Side in 2016, citing the slow withering of Williamsburg’s arts scene — but they kept the old boiler room and its feel of “raw, original Williamsburg,” Amrhein told the Brooklyn Eagle, citing the “aesthetic of decrepit.” Continued on page 3

Greenpointers sound off about neighborhood mega-development By Lore Croghan Greenpoint Gazette
It’s going to be big. As in 23 acres big. As in 5,500 apartments big. Is it any wonder people in Greenpoint talk about it a lot? The project that’s on their minds is Greenpoint Landing. Two of its waterfront towers have already sprouted. Others are on the way. Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group are its co-developers. Real estate nerds are intrigued by the mega-project’s power to transform the neighborhood. Greenpoint residents are worried about the mega-project’s

“It’s a little weird,” LeeAna Benson, a painter who lives and has her art studio in Greenpoint, said of the Greenpoint Landing mega-project. “It seems like there aren’t enough people to fill all the apartments. “We have a car. We drive around in circles looking for SERVING GREENPOINT FOR OVER

He lives in Greenpoint, too. “It’s a bummer,” he said about Greenpoint Landing’s presence on the skyline. “It’s blocking my view.

By Scott Enman Greenpoint Gazette
Two city politicians are trying to stop a 60-foot-wide advertising barge operated by Ballyhoo Media from making its journey up and down the East River. A bill slated for introduction on Thursday by Councilmembers Justin Brannan and Mark Levine would slap a $100,000 fine on Ballyhoo and other barge businesses — more than quadruple the current fine of $25,000 — for violating city zoning rules. New York City’s laws prohibit “the display of an advertising sign on any vessel in a waterway adjacent to a residential, commercial, or manufacturing district and within view of
an arterial highway.” The boat and its 20-foot high, double-sided screen can be clearly seen from several roadways, including the BQE, Belt Parkway, FDR Drive and West Side Highway. Politicians argue that the maximum fines, as they currently stand, pale in comparison to the profits earned by these companies and do nothing to deter the businesses from operating their floating ads. “Pricing of a 30-second spot in a two-minute loop on the boats is $55,000 in NYC,” a spokesperson for Pivot Media Ventures, a Ballyhoo affiliate, told Digiday. Besides being a distraction to drivers on major highways,

massive Greenpoint Landing development? “It’s a complicated issue,” Rainer said. “I was here before these buildings. They rose super-fast. “There’s going to be an influx – of bodies. Of cars. It definitely will be a strain on the infrastructure. “It’s a little bit foreboding, to be honest.”
Brooklyn politicians say constituents are complaining. “Often there are two points of view to an issue,” Brannan told the Greenpoint Gazette. “With these floating monstrosities, though, not one constituent has come to me and said they going to Shore Road Park so they can see a billboard in the harbor. “What I have heard from just about everybody, though, is that they are ugly and actually pretty dangerous because they distract drivers on the Belt Parkway.” Zachary Carter, corporation counsel for the New York City Law Department, sent a letter on Jan. 1 to Adam Shapiro, CEO and president of Ballyhoo, alerting him that he was breaking the law. “There is sufficient cause to believe that Ballyhoo’s operations in New York City violate the Zoning Resolution,” Carter wrote.
“Therefore, we are writing to provide Ballyhoo with an opportunity to demonstrate, no later than Jan. 16, 2019, how it intends to comply.” Senior counsel Brian Horan, who co-signed the letter with Carter, did not respond to a request for comment asking how Ballyhoo responded, if the Miami-based business had complied with the letter’s requests or if the city had levied any fines against the company. At the time, Shapiro denied that his company was breaking any laws, and his barge has continued to roam the waters ever since. “Ballyhoo Media is legally operating based on all current zoning resolutions,” he told the Gazette. “We plan to work with the city to resolve the matter shortly.” Visit brooklyneagle.com for the full story.

Greenpoint gallery The Boiler is closing. The theme of its last exhibit? Death continued from page 1
Amrhein joked that if Kaltenbach’s exhibit had gone up in 2009, when The Boiler first opened, they wouldn’t have needed to install a rain machine. “The roof would just leak,” he said. Amrhein and Swensen, who have been married for 20 years, added bathrooms and lighting and fixed up the 40-foot walls. But they stopped there, wanting to maintain the character of the original space. “The Boiler was unique for New York,” Amrhein said. Even so, he and Swensen had a hard time programming the space, especially as the artist community in the neighborhood became more and more diluted. “As gentrification took hold, it forced artists out.” Amrhein noted his concern for how a changing New York City would sustain a new generation of artists and talent. “It’s the doughnut effect — in the art world.” When Pierogi Gallery first opened in the mid-90s, Williamsburg was in its creative prime, said Amrhein. The neighborhood helped open the gates to the rest of the borough — “it became undeniable that for art, you had to come to Brooklyn.” But by 2016, the arts scene had thinned out considerably. Pierogi Gallery no longer benefitted from the once heavy foot traffic of artseekers, and Amrhein and Swensen relocated across the East River, where the Lower East Side offered a higher density of galleries and gallery-goers. And now, once they leave the Greenpoint space behind, the couple behind The Boiler will have moved on from Brooklyn entirely. “What Death Does,” which so smoothly mirrors the “aesthetic of decrepit” Amrhein valued in the gallery’s character, is on view until March 31. It is the last exhibit The Boiler will present in its current form. Amrhein hopes the owners of the space, who have been “great landlords” for the gallery, will retain the name. “This name belongs with this space,” he said, looking around at the empty room around the staged set. “It’s been an incredible reward.” The Boiler is open noon to 6 p.m. from Friday-Sunday and by appointment. It is located at 191 N. 14th St. Follow reporter Sara Bosworth on Twitter.

Bushwick’s new indie arcade bar wants to break all stereotypes about video games
The co-owners of Wonderville showcased their arcade games at a gallery in January. Photo courtesy of Wonderville “When I think about video games from my youth, it was a lot By Scott Enman Greenpoint Gazette
Don’t expect to find “Call of Duty” or “Fortnite” at Bushwick’s newest indie arcade bar. Wonderville, set to open at 1186 Broadway in May or June, is looking to flip the script on the idea that video games are violent, anti-social distractions for kids. The venue, which will double as an event space, will showcase dozens of independent games, many of which are made by Brooklynites.
Co-owners Stephanie Gross and Mark Kleback are hoping to open Wonderville, a new arcade in Bushwick, in the coming months.
of sitting on the couch with a headset. You didn’t really know people in person,” co-owner Mark Kleback told the Greenpoint Gazette. “It was a solo experience. “We’re encouraging people to come out into a public space, meet people, socialize and play games together. We want to create a fun, creative experience. All of the games that we make are for two to four people to play together in person.” Several of the unique games to be offered are unplayable without the help of a partner. One game called “Salmon Roll” involves balancing a virtual log, but in order to do that, two people must replicate the task in real life by holding a heavy two-by-four wooden plank. Another, dubbed Killer Queen, requires 10 people to play. At Wonderville, visitors won’t find many traditional controllers either. They can instead expect games operated by LED strips, doorstops, juicers and other strange contraptions. “There are a lot of games that aren’t necessarily built into arcade cabinets,” Kleback said. “There are ones that are built in trash cans. That’s what we’re interested in. Like, What are people doing with games that are weird and different?” Co-owners Stephanie Gross and Kleback, who met at Death by Audio, a former DIY music space in Williamsburg, are hoping to raise $70,000 on Kickstarter for their project. At press time, the campaign had raised $61,631 from 646 backers. And while many arcade bars across the city focus on retro games from a bygone era, Wonderville, which will take over the space of Secret Project Robot, will showcase modern independent games. “You start seeing places like Barcade pop up and other arcade bars, and they’re banking on this nostalgia of having these old ’80s machines,” Kleback said. “I thought why not a place for weird,
experimental games? Barcade can have all the old arcade machines and we can have all of these new art arcade machines.” Kleback said that while he enjoys playing larger, more wellknown games that have the backing of massive game studios, he also wanted to support emerging artists. “Supporting indie games doesn’t mean you can’t support bigname titles,” he said. “There’s room for both in the world. It’s the same thing between supporting that band that plays at the local club versus Radiohead. “We want to be a platform for that kid who just graduated from the game center who created a really amazing game all by himself for his thesis, and now he wants to showcase it somewhere.” Gross and Kleback, who both live in Bedford-Stuyvesant, hope to not only provide a space to let loose, but also one that allows visitors to learn about graphic design, fabrication and game development. The space will routinely host classes, workshops and talks with developers, as well as tournaments, playtest nights, board games, comedy, live music and rotating art exhibits. “Games are art pieces,” Kleback said. “It’s not necessarily a commercial thing that you buy and pay for, but it can be this experience where you learn things along the way.” Follow reporter Scott Enman on Twitter.

Eat like you’re Polish in Greenpoint By Lore Croghan

Jedzmy! That’s how to say “Let’s eat” in Polish. You can have an ethnic-food adventure in Greenpoint even if you didn’t know that. The neighborhood’s commercial corridor, Manhattan Avenue, is dotted with Polish bakeries, butchers and restaurants. They are living reminders of the neighborhood’s history as a heavily Polish enclave. It’s true that lots of customers in these restaurants and shops speak the language. But the people who work in them will be nice to you even if you don’t. It also doesn’t matter if you know next to nothing about traditional Polish cuisine, like me. My late granny was half Polish, but I only learned a couple Polish swear words from her. And my pronunciation of them is so bad that people who actually speak Polish can’t figure out what I’m saying when I try them out. Sadly, my Nana died when I was young. She never had a chance to give me Polish cooking lessons — or Polish eating lessons, for that matter. She spent so much time feeding her Irish husband and his Irish kinfolk that her Polish recipes fell by the wayside. So on Wednesday I decided I could remedy my ignorance. I invited myself to the Polka Dot Café at 726 Manhattan Ave. Don’t let the English-language name fool you. The menu is Polish from top to bottom.
Recipes people knew 100 years ago
“Young people don’t have time to cook,” Parys told me. The Polish fare she sells is traditional. “These are recipes people knew 100 years ago,” she said. When the café owner needs to hire a cook, the person doesn’t have to be a professional chef. She learned all about Polish cuisine at home. “I know she can cook because she has family,” Parys said.
Though I showed up with no advance warning, café owner Marzena Parys kindly gave me a tutorial in How To Eat Like You’re Polish. Which of course I partly am. Until five years ago, she ran Polski Meats, a business her late husband had launched. Then she decided a restaurant and prepared-food shop made more sense than a meat shop because of the influx of young residents to Greenpoint.
Pork cutlets and potato dumplings I asked Parys to pick out a typical lunch a restaurant would serve me if I went to Warsaw. She said a pork cutlet, sweet cabbage — which is minced up and tastes really good — mashed potatoes and cucumber salad. At Polka Dot Café, customers are more likely to order chicken cutlets.
This is a meatless Polish lunch plate at Polka Dot Café.
Also, it’s very Polish to go meatless for lunch. (Off in the distance, I can hear applause from the city Department of Education, with its Meatless Mondays.) An appetizing and very Polish meatless lunch would include the sweet cabbage with a serving of kasha with finely minced vegetables such as peppers and corn in it plus a serving of beet salad. Parys patiently spelled out the Polish-language names for many dishes. I’m afraid I might type them wrong and embarrass myself, so I left them out of this story. A meatless lunch could also include pierogi — pockets of dough with filling. The potato and cheese variety is the most popular at Polka Dot Café. And potato dumplings are a big Polish thing. She showed me a vegetable salad that everybody serves at parties. Café manager Agata Podgorska pointed out that if I had arrived in time for breakfast, pancakes filled with chopped apples would be a perfect Polish menu choice. Also there are Polish doughnuts called paczki. They have rose jelly filling in them and are served as dessert.

VIRTUAL AND REAL ESTATE In conjunction with the BRIC Biennial: Volume III, South Brooklyn Edition, the Virtual and Real Estate group exhibition features work by artists Pastiche Lumumba, Daniel Bejar, and Betty Yu, that expresses the conundrums that arise from living in an age where the simulated is increasingly confused with the real. Although “estate” has previously been
defined as fixed physical properties, the exhibition troubles our notions of property, ownership, circulation, space, and most fundamentally, what it means to be “real.” The Internet provides marginalized communities a virtual space for subversion and play, meanwhile distracting from the physical realities of gentrification and land rezoning. From Lumumba’s embalmed memes to Bejar’s subversion of the ubiquitous real estate billboard, to Yu’s archive of stories by communities affected by gentrification, these works challenges the absurdity of place and placelessness to bear on the chronological depth of lived experience. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through April 7th Where: Fort Greene/ BRIC House Gallery (647 Fulton Street)

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.

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.

Make like a tourist and ride the NYC Ferry Spring’s here, so you won’t freeze your face off
By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Yassss. Spring has finally arrived after the Winter Of Our Discontent. (Forgive me. That Shakespeare line comes to mind every March.) The NYC Ferry is Brooklyn’s best entertainment bargain once temperatures rise above 50 degrees. A ride costs $2.75, just like a subway fare. When it’s colder than that, the wind on the boat’s upstairs deck — which is where you must sit for a clear view of the scenery — makes your face hurt and numbs your fingers. Once it’s spring, it’s time to make like a tourist and cruise the East River. The best choice of the many routes the ferry service offers is the one from DUMBO to Greenpoint. It’s a thrilling experience every time you take this ride. There are so many iconic North Brooklyn buildings to see, with a world-famous bridge thrown in for good measure. The ferry ride from DUMBO to Bay Ridge is terrific too. But unless you have a camera with a telephoto lens, the beautiful buildings on this stretch of the waterfront are hard to photograph. So. The best way to see everything on the shoreline be-
tween DUMBO and Greenpoint is by getting on the ferry a stop early, over in Manhattan on Wall Street’s Pier 11. To amp up your experience, you should walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to get to Pier 11. This will give you aerial views of the East River before you head down onto the water. To avoid crowding on the bridge you can stroll it at sunrise – a bucket-list experience I highly recommend.
ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER
There are three reasons to start your ferry trip on the Manhattan side of the East River. Reason #1 is the spectacular view you see from the ferry’s deck of the famous Brooklyn Bridge with the World Trade Center rising beside it. This view will always call to mind the lives lost in the 9/11 terror attack that destroyed the Twin Towers. A good look at the new World Trade Center tower is also a reminder that New Yorkers are resilient. Reason #2 is a superb panoramic view of Brooklyn Heights, which only looks like this from out on the water. Reason # 3 is the glimpse you get of the old Watchtower headquarters as the ferry pulls into DUMBO’s Pier 1. The pale-blue building with the time-and-temperature sign on top was the world headquarters of the Jehovah’s Witnesses for
nearly a half-century. The religious organization had a blazing red electric sign on top of 30 Columbia Heights that said “WATCHTOWER” in capital letters. Last year, current owner Columbia Heights Associates, which is converting the property to an office, retail and cultural complex, successfully challenged a city Buildings Department decision that forbade it from replacing the 15-foot-tall sign letters. The new letters have not yet been put up. I can’t wait to see what they say.
SUGAR CRYSTALS ON A FACADE
After the ferry stops at Pier 1 it cruises past Jane’s Carousel, the historic merry-go-round in Brooklyn Bridge Park. At the edge of the park the 19th-century coffee warehouse complex called Empire Stores stands in all its landmarked, red-brick glory. Manhattan Bridge looms overhead, with the DUMBO Clocktower Building standing close by at 1 Main St. Manufacturer/real estate developer Robert Gair constructed the concrete building in 1914. The many industrial properties he built in the neighborhood a century ago are referred to as “Gairville,” as history lovers know.

But first the boat will make a stop at the South Williamsburg ferry dock. Spitzer Enterprises is constructing a glittering glass apartment complex there, right at the water’s edge. The development’s address is 420 Kent Ave. After the ferry passes beneath the Williamsburg Bridge, you get an eyeful of the landmarked 19th-century Domino Sugar Refinery. Two Trees Management is converting it into an office and retail complex. There’s lots of great stuff in Domino Park, which surrounds the refinery, but it’s hard to see from your vantage point on the river. You should walk down to this park from Greenpoint after you’ve strolled around the neighborhood’s shops and historic houses. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Back to our ferry ride.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 26, 1943
ON MARCH 26, 1943, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “An emergency shipment of 1,000,000 extra pounds of beef, in addition to ‘regular’ supplies, has been started on its way from the mid-West to New York City to cope with the meat shortage, Mayor [Fiorello] LaGuardia announced today. The entire shipment will reach the city for sale in butcher shops Monday. Bursting from a budget hearing in the Municipal Building, Manhattan, the mayor, who has been seeking extra meat supplies through the [Office of Price Administration] for some time, said: ‘I have good news. I am happy to be able to announce that due to the splendid co-operation of Sylvester Joseph, regional OPA director, and L.G. Booth, local food rationing director, New York City will be able to get 1,000,000 extra pounds of beef.’ The OPA, according to the mayor, invoked emergency powers vested in it to act when a food shortage ‘interferes with the morale of the civilian population in the war effort.’”

ON MARCH 28, 1886, the Eagle reported, “Wilcox, Arizona, March 27. General [George] Crook, accompanied by his personal staff, Lieutenant [Marion P.] Maus’ command and Apache scouts, today met Geronimo and all the Chiricahuas twenty-five miles southeast of San Bernardino Springs, Sonora, Mex. General Crook would have no argument with Geronimo, but told him he must decide at once on unconditional surrender or fight to the death. Geronimo begged for the lives of himself and the hostiles. His band offered to surrender unconditionally whether Geronimo does or not.” ON MARCH 28, 1915, the Eagle reported, “Dr. S.S. Goldwater, commissioner of public health, yesterday announced that ‘Typhoid Mary’ Mallon, who, the commissioner said, was ‘the greatest typhoid germ carrier in the country,’ had been located in Corona, L.I., and this afternoon quarantined on North Brothers Island. ‘Typhoid Mary,’ the commissioner said, was released from North Brothers Island in 1910, after she had been there three years. Her case is a remarkable one in medical history; although not ill herself, she carries the typhoid infection with her.” ON MARCH 28, 1922, the Eagle reported, “The Brooklyn Army Supply Base, at 58th St. and 1st Ave., is in a fair way of becoming the greatest booze storage warehouse in the country. Already much has been accomplished toward bringing this to pass. In pursuance of orders issued from Washington, all the seized liquor in the hands of the Federal Prohibition authorities in Brooklyn was quietly transferred from the private storehouse of Burns & Hurley on 15th St., to the Army Base. A smaller amount taken by the customs officials also went there. The greater part of an entire building at 59th St. and 1st Ave. has been assigned by the Army authorities for storing away Volstead Act evidence. The move was made primarily in the interest of economy. Private warehouse charges were running up continually and the government will be able to eliminate these by making use of the surplus space in the Army buildings.” ON MARCH 28, 1947, the Eagle reported, “Washington, March 28 (U.P.) — Representative J. Parnell Thomas, chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, said today he has ‘definite’ proof that the American Communist party is directed from Moscow. The New Jersey Republican declined to elaborate on the nature of the evidence but said it would be disclosed in a report to be made public ‘today or tomorrow.’ ‘It will show definitely,’ he said, ‘that the Community party in America is an agency of a foreign government.’ FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover told the committee previously that the American Communist party was a puppet outfit directed from Moscow. He said Communist orders came from Paris but that they were only relayed from Russia. Thomas also reaffirmed his intention to have the committee make a ‘thorough’ investigation of Communist infiltration of the Hollywood movie capital. Another member urged the committee to give first-priority to exposing Communists in government and labor unions.”

He liked to play a round of golf with his sons and was a long suffering, yet loyal New York Mets fan.

Special Thanks to Jessyka O’Heren long-time caregiver, friend, and someone we all consider a family member. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sally Ann O’Connor McPartlan, his daughter Mary Ann McPartlan Bajo, and siblings, Molly McPartlan Kelly, Annie T. McPartlan, Thomas McPartlan, Bridget McPartlan Carney, Edward McPartlan, and Josie McPartlan.
