Stalled BQX Streetcar Planning Back on Track By Greenpoint Gazette Editorial Staff Mayor Bill de Blasio is signaling renewed support for the Brooklyn-Queens Connector by awarding a $7.2 million contract to a consulting firm to study the environ-
mental impact of the 11-mile light rail project that would connect waterfront Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods. Some thought the streetcar, commonly referred to as the BQX, was dead before arrival — but the city’s move signifies a renewed commitSERVING GREENPOINT FOR OVER

ment to seeing the project through. The funds will go to civil engineering consultancy VHB to produce an Environmental Impact Study, a required next step to move the project along in the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). Following public hearings, the plan will ultimately come before the City Council, whose approval is required before construction can begin. The plan for the BQX surfaced in 2016 as a self-financed streetcar to traverse a 16 mile path through neighborhoods along the East River, from Sunset Park in Brooklyn to Astoria, Queens. The BQX would integrate with the MTA’s fare payment and transfer system. In 2018, the price tag increased — and the route’s length decreased. De Blasio announced in August that the BQX would need about $1 billion in federal funding for a total price tag of $2.5 billion, even after planners lopped off the five-
mile span through transitstarved Sunset Park, citing worries of low ridership. According to the Wall Street Journal, which first broke the story, the city expects an estimated 50,000 daily riders to use the streetcar. Ben Fried, a spokesperson for commuter advocacy group TransitCenter, was not pleased with the city’s show of faith. Fried called the decision to move forward with the BQX plan “galling” at a time when people are still abandoning buses. The mayor, during his State of the City address in January, promised a bus improvement plan that would increase ridership by 25 percent by the end of 2020. Conceding that the imminent arrival of Amazon HQ in Queens “could have an impact on the margins” of ridership, Fried maintained that those margins did not merit the expense. “[The BQX] is the wrong project at the wrong time,” he told the Greenpoint Gazette. Proponents of the BQX

are celebrating the administration’s awarding of $7.2 million in taxpayer funds to move the process forward, saying it’s the alternative to overwhelmed and underperforming subways and buses. “As the city grapples with a transit crisis, now is the moment for it to take control of its mass transit destiny and expand access wherever it
can,” said Jessica Schumer, the executive director of the Friends of the Brooklyn Queens Connector, in a statement. “The BQX is an essential first step and will provide a model for future City-run light rail lines in transit deserts across the city." The city estimates the streetcar will be completed by the end of 2024.

ROUGH EDGES: ELISE SIEGEL A solo show of ceramic sculpture by Elise Siegel. In this exhibition, a large gathering of Siegel’s idiosyncratic and psychologically expressive portrait busts inhabit the gallery. Although each bust is a distinct individual, they are not portraits of specific persons. Rather, they are embodiments of familiar emotional states — fleeting moments of inner conflict, disquiet, ambivalence and unease. As such, they exude an uncanny sense of
vulnerability and project an interiority that creates a psychological tension. When: Thursdays-Sundays through February 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)
ALITA BATTLE ANGEL: PASSPORT TO IRON CITY Guests explore the movie’s Iron City, which has been recreated down to the last detail by the film’s production designers, where they interact with the City’s gritty residents, earn credits by completing puzzles and challenges, experiment with custom technology built for the retro-future Alita aesthetic, and uncover hidden clues to determine their fate with the city’s controlling force. Passport to Iron City fully immerses travelers into the world of Alita’s touching cyberpunk story, and is unlike anything else.

structures bleed together, places patched together in our minds the way Molnar collages photographs, like concretized memories. These are the improbable landscapes of our memory, given physical shape. On view for “The Architecture of Memory” will be recent collaged paintings on panel as well as small-scale editioned work that reveal much of the early stages of her process, much like “sketches” but done through photographs and digital manipulation. When: By appointment only through February 22nd Where: Greenpoint/Arete Venue and Gallery (67 West Street)
BONNIE COLLURA: PRINCE Bonnie Collura’s sculptural installation Prince critiques our culture’s pattern of repeating iconic characters, gestures, and polarizing traits to create heroes. In her ongoing project, Collura interprets the Prince figure as an amalgamation of four archetypal male characters from history, religion, and popular culture: Jesus, St. Sebastian, C-3PO (the droid from Star Wars), and Abraham Lincoln. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through February 24th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack

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

Showcasing the photographs of Max de Esteban and Doug Fogelson. Doug Fogelson’s ‘Forms and Records’, explores the physicality and science of the photograph, through a formal exploration of objects, and their representation as photograms. He works with objects that either have a link to the natural world, or with outmoded technology such as vinyl records and architectural forms. The exhibition includes seven unique silver gelatin photograms and 6 color, limited edition prints made from color transparency photograms. The photograms are created through a series of carefully considered multiple exposures, with the color work incorporating additive color mixing, and blending of light.

WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS
What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into cloying sweetness and the faint
sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s painful and hard, but also carries the potential for profound transformation. When 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)

Take a Winter Stroll to the Newtown Creek Nature Walk And Other Scenic Greenpoint Spots By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
A sewage treatment facility has some of Greenpoint’s best waterfront views.
The good thing is that the public can see them, too. The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is right on the shoreline of the toxic waterway.
It has billion-dollar vistas of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, whistle-shaped Citigroup Center and an eye-catching array of Long Island City towers. We know this because the city Department of Environmental Protection built a pocket park on a sliver of the site more than a decade ago. As long as you resist the urge to wade or fish in the poisonous creek, which is a federal Superfund site, you’ll have a great time at the Newtown Creek Nature Walk, which is what it’s called. The nature walk is a quarter-mile long. But fear not — if you need exercise, it’s a hike from the nearest subway station and ferry dock to 100 Paidge Ave., where it’s located. Environmental artist George Trakas designed it.
Quenelle Rothschild & Partners LLP was the landscape architect.
PICTURESQUE DIGESTER EGGS
Native plants grow on the site. In the summer, they’re green, lush and flowering. Just FYI: In winter the trees are leafless, the grasses are sere and brown. The waterfront views are your reason to be here. In addition to the iconic skyscrapers, you’ll see a barge being loaded with crushed cars on the Queens shoreline. And on the far side of Whale Creek, which is one of the nature walk’s boundaries, you’ll see the sewage treatment plant’s digester eggs. The gigantic metal spheres process organic sludge but look glam.

This patient was hit in the nose with a soft ball. She had a closed nasal reduction to straighten the bridge of the nose that was deviated to the right. By: Sydney C. Butts, MD

think I broke my nose!” These words may be uttered after a sports injury, fall, car accident or an assault. Though nasal fractures are the most common of all facial fractures, determining the presence of a fracture and the possible need for surgery require the guidance of a surgical specialist and is a common reason a patient will see an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat specialist). It is important to be informed about how to get timely evaluation and treatment. Delays can result in complications and deformities that negatively affect nasal shape and breathing. Any severe blow to the nose should raise the suspicion of a break or fracture of the bones. Patients may experience pain, bruising, swelling, a nose bleed and difficulty breathing through the nostrils. Change in the shape of the nose, with twisting or flattening/widening of the bridge of the nose are signs of a fracture. Evaluation should be sought the day of the injury. This will usually be with an emergency physician or a primary care physician. A broken nose may also result in soft tissue injuries, including a hematoma(blood clot) of the nasal septum inside the nasal cavity. This is an emergency that must be drained promptly to prevent permanent damage to the septum. In situations where a hematoma has developed or there is a bad nose bleed
Dr. Sydney C. Butts, board certiﬁed, the American Board of Otolaryngology
associated with the injury, an otolaryngologist will often be called to assist in management. Imaging-plain xray or CT scan-is sometimes ordered but not required when the diagnosis is apparent. All patients with severe nasal trauma should be referred for follow up with an otolaryngologist or other facial trauma surgeon 3-5 days after the injury, because significant swelling at the initial evaluation can obscure changes in the shape of the nose (and this is where imaging can be of assistance). With a decrease in swelling, the decision will be made if surgery is needed. Healing in children is faster than in adults so it is especially important that they have prompt follow up. A closed nasal reduction is a procedure done to realign the fractured nasal bones. The nose bones are still mobile during the first 7-10 days and can be manipulated back in place and stabilized with a nasal cast worn for 7 days. This procedure generally takes 15 minutes and is done as an outpatient surgical procedure. If surgery is not done within this time frame, the bones begin to heal. To straighten the nose at this point, the bones have to be rebroken — a procedure called a septorhinoplasty — usually several months after the injury. A treatment delay is more serious in young children (less than 13 years) because the kind of extensive nasal procedures used after bone healing has occurred can disturb facial growth. Nasal fractures are readily treated but patients should ensure they seek medical attention right away and have prompt follow up so that if surgery is needed, there are no delays and the shape of the nose is restored. —— Bio — Dr. Sydney C.

You reach this dandy drawbridge over Newtown Creek via McGuinness Boulevard, which has a sidewalk. In the middle of the bridge, there’s a viewing area where you can take pictures. If you have vertigo, it’s a little bit unnerving to stand there because you can feel the bridge bounce as cars pass over it. On the Greenpoint side of the creek, you will see a dramatic old-fashioned brick industrial building. It’s the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center at 1155-1205 Manhattan Ave. As the center’s website explains, the property is the former Chelsea Fiber Mills, which was a maker of rope for marine uses. Part of the complex dates back to the 1860s. Today, it belongs to a nonprofit and houses small manufacturers and artisans. Behind this property, you can see a new tower, One Blue Slip, which is at mega-development Greenpoint Landing, and the framework of companion tower 41 Blue Slip, which is under construction. On the Long Island City side of the creek, sailboats are tied up along the shoreline in a picturesque row. And you get a somewhat closer view of the skyscrapers that you can see from the Newtown Creek Nature Walk.
25 years experience Appointment Only
Down on terra firma, there are a couple good vantage points for viewing Newtown Creek. First, walk to the end of Manhattan Avenue, beside the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center, and you’ll find a kayak launch. This puts you at eye level with the sailboats on the Long Island City shoreline. Second, stroll from Manhattan Avenue to Commercial Street, which will take you to Greenpoint Landing. On the water’s edge alongside One Blue Slip, there’s a public esplanade that developers Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group built. James Corner Field Operations designed the walkway, seating areas and landscaped terrain. Of course, the plantings are prettier in the summertime. Nevertheless, it’s exciting to walk by the waterside on terrain that’s public recreation space for the first time. The property was a lumberyard for eight decades before Park Tower Group bought it in 2005.

DMV SERVICE CENTERS Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 5, 1937
ON FEB. 5, 1937, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Washington, Feb. 5 (AP) — Retirement privileges for Supreme Court justices recommended to Congress today by President [Franklin] Roosevelt would affect six of the present nine members of the Supreme Bench. These justices are over 70 and have served ten years on the Federal Bench: Chief Justice Hughes and Justices Van Devanter, McReynolds, Sutherland, Butler and Brandeis. Of the six, Van Devanter, McReynolds, Sutherland and Butler are regarded by some lawyers as the conservative wing of the high court, while Brandeis is considered by them to belong to the so-called liberal group. Should the president’s recommendations be enacted into law and the six justices retire, Justices Stone, Cardozo and Roberts would be left on the bench. Of the three, Stone and Cardozo have come to be known as the liberals by some attorneys. Roberts sometimes has sided with them on important constitutional questions and sometimes with the so-called conservative group.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 6, 1952
ON FEB. 6, 1952, the Eagle reported, “London, Feb. 6 (UP) — King George VI died peacefully in his sleep early today and 25-year-old Princess Elizabeth became reigning sovereign of the British Commonwealth and empire. The new queen, who will reign over one-quarter of the world’s surface and population, was vacationing in Nairobi, Kenya, an African colony, when the death of her 56-year-old father suddenly elevated her to the throne. She departed for London at once with her husband and prince consort, Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. They had been scheduled to sail from Africa tomorrow for a royal tour of Ceylon, Australia and New Zealand … Death came to the King at the same estate where he was born Dec. 14, 1895. He had reigned through 15 of Britain’s most momentous years. He succeeded to the throne Dec. 11, 1936, when his brother, Edward VIII, abdicated for the ‘woman I love.’ Edward became the Duke of Windsor.”

ROOFING Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 7, 1934
ON FEB. 7, 1934, Eagle reporter O.R. Pilat wrote from Paris, “The swelling growl of mob fury is an awful thing. I heard its roar redouble unexpectedly early this afternoon despite the resignation of the Daladier ministry. The latest street battles were fought this afternoon in the Place de la Concorde and the Boulevard Madeleine shortly before 5 p.m., or noon, New York time. I was walking in front of the American Embassy, which faces the Place de la Concorde, and, with hundreds of other spectators, was caught in the first clash. I saw Communists stab the horses of guards with broken steel and glass, saw home-made bombs exploded in front of the horsemen and heard women shriek: ‘Kill them! Hang them! Assassins! Thieves!’ I saw blood streaming from face cuts inflicted by the sabers of the mounted guards. I was watching the mob set fire to buses and pull up trees and wreck benches to build barricades when the foot police charged. The group with me, including many curious pedestrians, was cut off in a mad rush down the Rue Rivoli.”

‘Zero Waste Grocery Service’ No Longer an Oxymoron By Megan Lazaros Special to Greenpoint Gazette
A new grocery delivery service has arrived in Brooklyn and it’s a relief for those of us seeking refuge from the wave of plastic we encounter at our grocery stores. The Wally Shop delivers package-free local and organic groceries straight to your door. If, like me, you’re trying to live a low-waste lifestyle in NYC, grocery shopping can be a anxiety-inducing challenge. Saying no to plastic and disposables can be difficult and our choices can feel limiting or time consuming — and seriously, who has time to spare? Though I mean well in my quest to refuse plastic, live sustainably, and eat locally, I often succumb to a quick trip to the grocery stores or bodegas where the aisles are stacked with packaged foods, plastic-wrapped bananas and veggies that have most likely sat there for three months. Until recently, it hard to do otherwise. Enter the Brooklyn-based Wally Shop. The Wally Shop delivers groceries in reusable packages, like cloth produce bags and mason jars to ensure every customer has a zero waste grocery experience.

The company also partners with local farms and small businesses to ensure that customers receibe the most nutritious foods with the lowest carbon footprint. Returning the packaging is easy. You hand it off to Wally Shop staff at the time of your next delivery. From there, The Wally Shop sanitizes the packaging so that they can use it again for another delivery. It’s a perfect little closed loop system. Perhaps more companies will take note of this model and offer customers convenient and sustainable shopping options. The Wally Shop currently delivers to zip codes in Bushwick, Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Carroll Gardens, Prospect Heights, Bay Ridge, East New York, Crown Heights, Park Slope, Boerum Hill, Sunset Park, and beyond. The company said it plans to expand to Manhattan next before eventually heading into Queens. For more information, visit thewallyshop.co. ___________________ Meg Lazaros is a creative director and brand strategist focused on supporting environmentally conscious brands and organizations. She is a Bronx native living in Greenpoint and championing waste reduction across NYC.

Quentin Tarantino-Themed Bar Opening in Williamsburg By Raanan Geberer Greenpoint Gazette
“KillBar,” a theme bar that pays homage to director Quentin Tarantino, was scheduled to open last Friday in Williamsburg. Tarantino’s influence is seen everywhere, from the decor to the food to the names of the drinks. The
bar itself resembles the tavern scene in “Inglourious Basterds,” and artist Amar Stewart has created Tarantino-themed paintings, according to amNewYork. Among the dishes offered are Hateful 8 Wings, referencing Tarantino’s 2015 Western; Death Proof Chili, named after his 2007 horror
movie; and Pussy Wagon Tacos, named after a yellow Chevrolet featured in “Kill Bill: Volume 1.” The drinks have names like the Taran-
tino iced tea and the KillBar Moscow mule. KillBar will also host screenings of Tarantino movies on Mondays. “I’m a huge fan of
Quentin’s work and his totally unique artistic direction, so I wanted to celebrate that,” owner Michael Galkovich told amNewYork.

Enid’s, Well-Known Greenpoint Restaurant, Set to Close By Meaghan McGoldrick Greenpoint Gazette
Enid’s, a moderately priced Greenpoint restaurant that’s been serving Southern comfort food for 20 years, announced last Friday that it will be closing at the end of March. Manager Andy Siebert told Gothamist that the owners informed him that the impending closure of the restaurant on Manhattan and Driggs avenues was not caused by rent increases or any outside factors. “We’ve been here 20 years, a lot of us who work here have been here over a decade, and we’ve done our thing — it’s time to make some room for new pioneers,” he told Gothamist. An announcement on Instagram advised patrons to

enjoy the next two months by having some mimosas at brunch on Saturday, drinking “too many frozen Harrisons the next day,” teaching your
kid to say “I love Enid’s pickles” and “I’ll have two beers,” and doing “something illegal with the barback in the bathroom that night.”
