Is Greenpoint the next Williamsburg? By Alex Wieckowski

Some call it growth. Others call it gentrification. Either way, Greenpoint is changing. A farewell banner hangs on a deli's storefront. A farewell banner hangs on a deli's storefront. With that evolution comes the loss of many neighborhood gems. Earlier this month, Greenpoint lost the American Deli Market. The bodega, located at 97 Franklin St., was a staple of the area, operating for 20 years. The owners, Dennis and Yvette Camacho, received a vacate notice in 2016 and spent years negotiating their lease and even offered to purchase the building more than once, Greenpointers reported. However, in the end, no deal was made. The Camachos are now trying to find a new home for their beloved deli, but are having trouble doing so due to the rising rents in the neighborhood. “The rents are extremely high … it’s much higher than we’re paying now,” Camacho said. “This makes me sad,” said Will Hernandez, a Greenpoint native. “This place is an institution. I can't tell you how many times I went to this place in between games of basketball and handball at the park.”

This storyline, however, is becoming all too common for Greenpoint. In the past few months, several mom-andpop stores in the neighborhood have closed their doors after decades of business, including Cheap Charlie’s at 712 Manhattan Ave.; Green Farms Supermarket at 918 Manhattan Ave., which opened in 1977; and Devito P Paint & Wallcovering at 113 Nassau Ave., which opened in 1972. “Green Farms was always the place to go for the best cold cuts and rolls, my grandmother would send us there all the time,” said resident Roxanna Agosto, echoing the sentiments of Hernandez. “Cheap Charlie’s gave me my first job at 16,” shed added. “I feel like it’s the end of an era and all our childhood places in Greenpoint are being closed or pushed out. “They had everything in that store” said 15-year Greenpoint resident Maggie Delgado of Cheap Charlie’s. “Sometimes things you wouldn’t find elsewhere.” Jennifer Quercia, who has lived in Greenpoint for more than 20 years, said she liked Green Farms Supermarket for their “fresh Polish food” and the fact that the business was family owned. She also misses Pit Stop Bar, a local watering hole that closed last year after 20 years.

On opening night at Eastville, Brooklyn’s only dedicated comedy club, the 120-seat venue was packed. See page 7.

Former N.Y. Attorney General Won’t Face Abuse Charges By Michael Balsamo and Michael R. Sisak The Associated Press

The special prosecutor investigating former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said last Thursday that she couldn’t bring criminal charges over allegations he

physically abused women he dated, in part, because current state law doesn’t explicitly outlaw such behavior. In closing the six-month investigation, Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas implored lawmakers to pass legislation to criminalize slapping, shoving and other violence com-

mitted for sexual gratification. Singas, who was appointed to conduct the investigation by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in May, said investigators conducted an “exhaustive review” and that she personally interviewed each woman who had accused Schneiderman of assault. Investigators also spoke with mem-

bers of Schneiderman’s security detail and people who worked for him in the attorney general’s office, she said. “I believe the women who shared their experiences with our investigation team. However, legal impediments, including statutes of limitations, preclude criminal prosecution,” Singas said in a statement announcing her decision. She said she found no misconduct by attorney general’s office staff. Schneiderman, 63, said he recognizes that Singas’ decision “does not mean I have done nothing wrong.” “I accept full responsibility for my conduct in my relationships with my accusers, and for the impact it had on them,” Schneiderman said through a publicist. “After spending time in a rehab facility, I am committed to a lifelong path of recovery and making amends to those I have harmed. I apologize for any and all pain that I have caused, and I apologize to the people of the state of New York for disappointing them after they put their trust in me.” Schneiderman, a Democrat, announced his resignation in May, hours after The New Yorker published an expose saying that four women had accused him of slapping or choking them. Some of the women said Schneiderman was a heavy drinker. Schneiderman at the time didn’t deny the allegations but implied in an initial statement his conduct was either welcomed or was not as the women described. Michelle Manning Barish, a Democratic activist and writer, said Schneiderman became controlling and abusive — slapping her hard across the face and choking her — soon after they started dating in mid-2013. Manning Barish said yesterday she felt “completely vindicated” by Schneiderman’s acknowledgement he had abused

women, and said she would work to ensure that legislation outlawing such behavior is passed into law. Tanya Selvaratnam, an author and film producer who dated Schneiderman in 2016 and 2017 and described similar abuse, thanked Singas “for the care she gave to the investigation.” “This experience underscores the need for legislation addressing intimate violence so all of those who experience it can come forward knowing they have protection under the law,” Selvaratnam said in a statement. Under current New York law, a slap, shove or kick that doesn’t cause physical injury can be charged as a non-criminal violation, but only if the offender’s intent is to “alarm, harass or annoy” the victim. Charges can’t be brought if the offender’s intent is sexual arousal or gratification, unless the victim proves the violence

caused substantial pain or injuries that go beyond bumps, bruises and cuts. Singas’ proposal calls for classifying sexually motivated violence as a misdemeanor, which would carry punishment of up to one year in jail, along with a two-year statute of limitations. Manning Barish’s lawyer, Debra Katz, said closing the gap in the law is “crucial to protect victims of sexual abuse and violence from the deeply emotionally scarring injuries they experience in their intimate relationships.” “Without it, abusers can get off scot-free — even when they later admit to the behavior, as Mr. Schneiderman did today,” Katz said. In the meantime, Manning Barish is calling on Schneiderman to donate millions of dollars left in his campaign coffers to women’s shelters, and that she wished him well in his recovery.

Is Greenpoint the Next Williamsburg? continued from p. 1

“It was a great small neighborhood bar,” Quercia said. “Greenpoint was great back in the day, she added. “Now it’s ruined.” The gentrification of Greenpoint can be tied back to 2005 when the area was rezoned for residential use by then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration. The Williamsburg-Greenpoint rezoning allowed private developers to build by the waterfront in exchange for creating publicly accessible space. It’s safe to say many developers jumped on that chance. There’s the 40-story tower called The Greenpoint at 21 India St. There’s also a 33story tower at 37 West St. Greenpoint’s most noteworthy development, however, is perhaps the Greenpoint Landing project site led by Park Tower. When completed, the 10tower mega-complex will have 5,500 apartments, 1,400 of which will be affordable apartments. As part of the concessions, Greenpoint Landing will also build four acres of waterfront green space, which includes Newtown Barge and Box Street Parks and a pre-K through eighth grade school. The expected population increase, luxury condominiums and waterfront views are all factors contributing to higher rent prices for both commercial and residential

users in Greenpoint. A market report by GFI Realty Services reported that from 2016 to 2017, yearover-year retail pricing increased by 42 percent, going from $63 per-square-foot to $89. The price, however, looks affordable when compared to the $295 per-squarefoot retail cost in Williamsburg. Yet, when looking at residential units, Greenpoint and Williamsburg are nearly the same. The GFI report said that last year, condos in Greenpoint were trading at $1,200 per-square-foot while apartments rented for $60 persquare-foot. In Williamsburg, condos went for $1,400 persquare-foot while apartments were $70 per-square-foot. The bad news, however, is that the residential figures GFI reported for Greenpoint are “numbers that we expect to continue rising” and that Greenpoint’s transformation is “likely playing a direct role in the rising retail rents that Greenpoint is seeing today.” In the meantime, many are wondering whether momand-pop store will be able to adapt to the changing neighborhood and rising residential and commercial prices. Only time will tell.

mmigran NYC Native Pens Im nt Surviv val Storyy Agaiinst Bacckdrop oof Warr and a Corruption *UHHQSRLQW*D]HWWH

Mysticism, adventure,, struggle and a family going beyond their t limits to survive — these are the subjects s readers can expect while readiing Neil Perrrry Gordon’s debut historicaal fiction release “A lease, A Cobbler’s Tale. ale a ” This is the story of a young Jewish immigrant, Pincus Potasznik, a cobbler who leaves his pregnant p wife Clara and children behin nd in Eastern Europe’s Galicia region in search of a better life on the Lowerr East Side of Manhattan. Complete with fastt-paced stoa rylines, “A Cobbler ’s Tale” immediately engages the reader on a wild ride as it begins with Pincus’ treacherous ride on the SS Amerika through the violent seas of the Atlantic. On the ship Pincus m makes the acquaintance of hooligan Jakob Adler, a risk-taker who beco omes Pincus’ partner in crime and chaanges the immigrant’s story forever. Attempting to make a life for himself in the U.S. and lateer resettle his family a y, Pincus is unawaree of the threats and adversity Clara and hiis children are facing back inn their shtetl during Woorld Waar I. As “A A Cobbler’s Tale” a weaves together two distinct storiies of struggle from r Clara to Pincus, the reader r can enjoy dual, yet connected pllot lines. Relatable to thhe preesent-day immigration crisis of separrated families escaping persecution for a better life, Gordon brilliantly expooses struggles any immigrant would facce immersing into a new culture and couunnttryy. Moshe Potasznik, Pincus and Clara’s oldest son, adds an a element of

Kabbalah, the anccient Jewish mysticism around the abbility to foretell dire events and to bringg peace to those sufffering. As the stoory is loosely based on true events, Pootasznik is Gordon’s grandfather. adds “M My A CobGordon adds, M voice in ‘A bler’s Taale’ came from growing up in a multigenerationaal Jewish family. The small day-to-day intricacies of living with grandparents,, who immigrated as children to Americca, provided me with a direct connectionn and an ability to tell their stories.” Born in the Broonx, Gordon and his family moved out of the city when he was 7 years old too the suburban community of Rocklaand Countyy. Gordon g g school class graduated in the fiirst high from the Green Meadow Waldorf a School in 1976. Shhortly after graduating in 1980 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from m Pace Universityy, he moved to south F Florida and started a drapery business. In 1990, he reloocated back to New perates his business, Yoork and still op Decorating with Fabric. F He has two adult sons, Samu uel and Maximilian. Neil has written tw wo professional trade books, “The Desiigner’s Coach” and “An Architect’s Guide G to Engineered Shading Solutions..” “A Cobbler’s Taale” was released e last month and is available a on Amazon, IndieBound and wher w rever e books arre sold. In a Q&A A wiith Smith Publicityy, Gordon discussed the characters in his novel and the histoorical events that inspired “A A Cobbler’s Taale.

Smith Pu ublicity: What are the real-life, histoorical aspects of “A A Cobbler’s Tale” a ? Neil Perrry Gordon: Many of the i the book, including the characters in protagonist,, Pincus Potasznik, were, in fact, family. Pincus and his wife Clara, were in facct, my great-grandparents, and Moshee was my grandfather. Although Pinccus did leave his pregnant wife Clara, and three small children behind when he immigrated to America, for he h didn’ did ’t acctually t ll return t f them th until til after the waar ended in 1920, unlike the story told inn the book. Pincus was indeed a cobbblerr, as well as the founder of the Landdsman Society of Krzywcza, which helpeed people from his village establish neew lives in the America. During WW W1, the fighting between Russia and the central powers in Galicia was extrraordinarily bloody. By the end of 1914, the Russians controlled almost all oof Galicia only to be pushed out in 19155 by the combined German German, Austro-Hunngarian and Turkish u forces. Tooday the aarea is split between Poland and Ukraine. The Jewish immigration to the Lower East Side is also histor-

icallyy accurate; their influence is still preseent today. mith Publicity: What process did Sm you ggo through to understand 1910 — m the Lower East Side to living in a from shtetl? Gordon: G Fortunately there is a good unt of information online describamou ing how h people lived in shtetls in Galicia reegion. It was important for me to fully y understand how they described istence and what hat was as importtheir eexistence ant to t them. I used the same process the Lower East Side for researching r in thee 1910s. In addition, I visited Ellis nd to provide an understanding of Islan immigration story. This inthe Jewish J cludeed a private tour of the abandoned pital facilities on the island, which hosp offfer f red insights to the immigration experieence. Sm mith Publicity: What is the signifficancce of the Kabbalah references? G Gordon: An important part of the storyy, revolves around the spiritual figure kknown as the tzaddik. According to Kabbbalah, there are only 36 tzaddikim

on earth at any one time. A person n who is considered tzaddik, is also refferred to as the “righteous one.” As in many m spiritual practices, as a counter-baalance to the tzaddik, there is the rasha, or o the “evil one.” The story of the tzaddiikk and the rasha, are drawn upon from iinspirational readings from Kabbalah mysticism. Smith Publicity: Teell readers a little bit about the courage and fortituude of your characters, and what o r characters hat influe infl enced e the development of their personaliities? Gordon: The particular strengtths of each character revolve around sstrong archetypical qualities. Pincus, foor instance, realized his personal ambiitions put his family at risk, and therrefore needed to save them from the raavages of warr. Clara displayed increedible strength and fortitude, made ev vident by her willingness to do anythinng to protect her children. Moshe was a spiritual figure who provided divine inspi i ration to those in need. Jakob’s lo oyalty to Pincus was unmatched, his ennerrgy g unequaled, and was the impetus oof the story’s fast pace.

The History of Black Friday

Black Friday marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. Come Black Friday, shoppers strive to get the lowest prices on gifts for their loved ones. Much of the focus of Black Friday is on finding the best deals, but it can be interesting to take a breath and learn how this phenomenon developed and how it has evolved over the years. The term Black Friday was originally associated with gold prices and manipulation on the part of speculators Jay Gould and James Fisk. This scandal occurred in September, 1869. Commodity prices plummeted 50 percent as a result, and the term Black Friday was coined to refer to that drop. The phrase Black Friday also became famous for all the wrong reasons in 1966. Philadelphia police used it to refer to the Friday traffic jams and crowding in downtown stores from tourists and shoppers who flooded into the city in advance of the Army-Navy football game held the Saturday after Thanksgiving each year. Bigger crowds and rowdiness contributed to long hours and stressful shifts for local police. The retail industry started using the term Black Friday in the late 1980s. Spin doctors turned previously negative connotations into positive

ones by associating the phrase with stores turning a profit and moving accounting ledgers from red to black thanks to big year-end sales. Retailers and consumers rallied around low-cost doorbusters and other discounted prices.

Interestingly enough, according to the National Retail Federation, Black Friday really hasn’t been the most lucrative day for retailers over the years. In fact, greater profits and larger crowds are often seen on the last Saturday preceding

Christmas. While Black Friday may have been the catalyst, in recent years shoppers have made the entire weekend of Black Friday a lucrative one for retailers. Many stores now open on Thanksgiving and

extend sales through the entire weekend. Small Business Saturday and Sunday promote patronizing mom-and-pop stores. Cyber Monday emerged when online shopping became a popular way to grab deals, and it

marks the close of the opening weekend of the holiday shopping season. In 2017, Black Friday weekend attracted 174 million shoppers who spent an average of $335.47, according to the NRF.

A Tasty Take on Turkey Just in Time for Thanksgiving Perhaps no day is more synonymous with a certain dish than Thanksgiving is with turkey. As tasty as turkey can be, this flavorful fowl doesn’t find its way onto many families’ dinner tables unless it’s Thanksgiving day. Secret family turkey recipes may reign supreme in some households, but holiday hosts with no such resources can consider this unique recipe for Holiday Turkey from Andrew Schloss’s “Cooking Slow” (Chronicle Books). By slow cooking the turkey, cooks can ensure it’s evenly cooked.

HOLIDAY TURKEY Makes 15 servings 1 fresh turkey, about 15 pounds, preferably free-range • 1 tablespoon olive oil • 1 quart apple cider • 2 teaspoons dried poultry seasoning Coarse sea salt and freshly •

ground black pepper Remove the giblets from the turkey and discard (or save for another use). Rinse the turkey inside and out and pat dry with paper towels. Rub it all over with salt and pepper. Refrigerate, uncovered, for at least 12 hours and up to 24 hours. During that time, the surface of the turkey will become visibly dry and the skin will tighten; this encourages a nice crisp skin on the finished bird. Remove the turkey from the refrigerator one hour before you plan to start roasting. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Put the turkey on a rack set in a large, flameproof roasting pan. Drizzle the oil over the top. Roast for one hour. Reduce the oven temperature to 175° F. Pour the cider into the roasting pan and sprinkle the poultry seasoning in the liquid. Continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part

of a thigh (but not touching bone) registers to 170° F. Transfer the turkey to a carving board, tent loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest for about 15 minutes (see tip). Meanwhile, skim the fat from the surface of the liquid in the pan. Put the roasting pan over two burners and bring the pan drippings to a boil over high heat. Cook until the juices reduce and thicken slightly, enough to coat a spoon, about 10 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Carve the turkey and serve with cider pan juices. Resting tip: Slow-roasted meats need far less resting time (pretty much none) than those that are traditionally roasted. The reason for resting meat that has been roasted at a high temperature is to allow juices that have collected in the cooler center time to migrate back into the dryer (hotter) exterior sections after it comes out of the oven.

Because slow-roasted meats are cooked evenly and at a temperature that keeps most

of the juices in place, a resting period is largely unnecessary. A brief resting time does allow

the meat to become a little firmer as it cools, making it easier to carve.

Cranberry-Infused Cocktail for Autumn Entertaining Besides the ubiquitous pumpkin spice, nothing says autumn more than tart cranberries. Cranberries are a major component of Thanksgiving feasts, turning up alongside and atop turkey as well as in quick breads and desserts. Cranberries are loaded with health benefits, which include reducing the risk for ulcers and preventing gum disease. Also, just eight ounces of cranberry juice cocktail contains 137 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin C. Cranberries can even be used to craft great cocktails. Move over mulled ciders, this crisp Cranberry Margarita from the Cape Cod

Cranberry Growers Association makes a great autumn-inspired beverage.

CRANBERRY MARGARITA Serves 1 1 1/2 shots of tequila 1 shot of cranberry juice cocktail 1/4 cup of whole berry cranberry sauce 1/2 shot of triple sec 10 ice cubes Sweetened dried cranberries, for garnish Lime, for garnish Combine all ingredients except garnish in a blender.

Venerable Fulton Street retailer adds light and space and style after three-year renovation


The moment Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Macy’s CEO Jeffrey Gennette, Macy’s Downtown Store Manager Kizzie Tunson and Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce COO Rick Russo cut the red ribbon, a flood of eager shoppers filled the venerable Fulton Mall retailer’s renovated main floor. Led by the Soul Tigers Marching Band, the first 100 customers were presented with $10 gift cards by store staff, while Macy’s executives stood nearby, beaming like proud parents showing off their newborn. “The renovation of Macy’s Downtown Brooklyn illustrates our firm commitment to

the Fulton Street retail community and our loyal customers,” said Tunson. “We are proud to present our customers with an updated store environment, enhanced merchandise offerings, and an elevated level of customer service.” The Fri., Nov. 9 ribbon-cutting capped a three year, topto-bottom renovation aimed at opening up spaces that had previously seemed dark and slightly claustrophobic when compared to Macy’s flagship Herald Square store. Elevations in some of the floors have been removed, creating a unified level surface throughout. The sense one might have had in the past of Macy’s Fulton being comprised of separate retail outlets under one roof is gone. In fact, viewing the main sales floor from the Fulton Street entrance, it’s difficult to tell the difference between the Downtown Brooklyn and Herald Square locations, at least at first blush. “We want our customers to be able to focus on the shopping experience,” said Emily Hawkins, Macy’s media relations director.

Cutting the ribbon. purchased the building at 422 Fulton Street with plans to transform the upper five floors into offices for tech and creative businesses. Macy’s retains the lower four stories, affording some 278,000 square feet for retail operations. A Fulton Street fixture since 1865, Macy’s Downtown began as Abraham and Straus, the latter representing the Straus brothers, Isidor and Nathan, who had also acquired ownership of R.H. Macy. In 1928, A&S underwent a massive expansion of 422 Fulton, including excavating a new basement. Its grand reopening took place just 10 days before Black Thursday, when Wall

Street crashed. Economizing by putting employees on commission, A&S weathered the Great Depression without laying off a single worker. The current Art-Deco façade along Fulton Street was completed in 1929. According to published reports, Macy’s strategic vision for the Downtown Brooklyn store includes establishing a fashion hub that will serve neighborhoods from Manhattan Beach to DUMBO. Brands such as DKNY, Patricia Nash, Brahmin and Radley fill the main floor. The cosmetics department has been expanded to 18,000 square feet, featuring Dior, Bobby Brown,

The lower level is dedicated to furniture and home goods; menswear occupies the second floor—with a big and tall department for good measure, women’s ready-to-wear fills the third, and the fourth floor rounds out with children’s clothing, intimate apparel and outerwear. In addition to Starbucks, a LensCrafters has been added

to the main floor, near the Livingston Street entrance. Now that the Downtown Brooklyn Macy’s is every bit as bright and spacious as the Herald Square flagship, only time will tell if it draws the crowds for which 34th Street is renowned. For the moment, it seems as though the chance to browse unimpeded by mobs of tourists will be one few Brooklyn residents will willingly pass up.

Target Cuts Ribbon on its Newest Store in Midwood BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

Right on Target! The retailer cut the ribbon on its newest Brooklyn location, 1712 East 14th St., in Midwood, in an invite-only store preview event on Wed., Nov. 7. The store — which is near Kings Highway — is one of the new small-format stores the chain has been opening in urban areas, dense suburban neighborhoods and near college campuses. Last fall, Target launched a 20,400-square-foot location at 6401 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst. The store opened unofficially on Fri., Nov. 9, with its official grand opening on Sun., Nov. 11 at 8 a.m., but Team Leader Shena Pender told this paper about the excitement the latest iteration of Target has already brought to the neighborhood. “I think what makes this Target location unique is that it’s a small format store, but the size of it is 37,000 square feet so it’s not the usual small format store that you’re used to seeing,” she said, pointing out that the Bensonhurst store is “a little bit smaller.

“We have a great assortment that we are going to offer for our community,” Pender continued. “They’re just excited that Target is here and we also have a Starbucks. A lot of guests have been knocking on our doors wanting to come in.

The new Midwood Target. “They’re really excited it’s really close,” she added. “Typically, they’re a train ride away.” Pender said she anticipated “a lot of great foot traffic from the people that live in the neighborhood and don’t have to take that long train ride to get there.” That was one of the goals of building owner Infinity Real Estate, according to

Steve Kassin, a founder and managing partner. With roots in the neighborhood, Kassin told this paper, “We hope residents and those who work here will welcome the convenience and accessibility Target’s new small format store will provide to all.” The Midwood store — in an area that Infinity Investment

Director Daniel Gluck called a “vibrant, high-density and convenient neighborhood in the heart of Brooklyn” — offers a product selection that is familiar to Target shoppers, but tailored for local residents and commuters. “One of the special areas is electronics,” Pender said. This includes Plus Mobile for cell phones. In addition, she said, staffers in the store’s beauty department have had extra training “to be able to support the guests in any way they can.” The Midwood Target’s grocery department is also a specialty area.

“Being that there are no bigger grocery stores in the area, I’m really excited that we offer that to our guests,” said Pender, who also singled out the store’s apparel department. “They’re going to love the stuff that we have for them,” she said. Merchandise at the store includes a curated assortment of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories, as well as clothes and accessories for infants and children, home and decor essentials, health and beauty products, toys and sporting goods, and more. It will also offer a quick-trip selection of food and beverages.

Community outreach is typically an important part of what Target does and this location is no exception. “We pride ourselves on volunteering,” Pender said, adding that she was “looking forward” to being contacted by local organizations about volunteer opportunities for Target staff. In addition, she noted that the store had given a grant to a local not for profit, Imagine Academy, whose mission is for to help families of children that have been diagnosed with autism. “It’s a new partnership,” Pender added. “I’m looking forward to seeing what we can create in the relationship and how we can help them spread the message and also any activity we can be supportive in. We would love to be a part of that.” The new Midwood Target is the third small-format store to open in Brooklyn. Its hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-10 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m.11 p.m.; and Sunday 8 a.m.-10 p.m. The Starbucks hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-9 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Additional reporting by Maria DeVito.

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.

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)

Theatre forVesta Kids Furniture and Families OpensDream in Park Slope Family-Owned is a Life-Long for Owners By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-affirming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.

Steve Casa and his wife Lucia prepare for the ribbon-cutting at Vesta Furniture. By John Alexander INBrooklyn

Steve Casa has a fascinating story to tell about how his whole life has revolved around furniture, even before he came to own and operate Vesta Furniture at 1647 Bath Avenue. But clearly, the family-run business is his passion and the culmination of a dream. Casa emigrated to America from Italy in July, 1968, with his parents and seven siblings. In 1973 when he was a sophomore in high school, his brother helped him land a job with John Turano and Sons, a wholesale furniture distributor in Greenpoint. Casa’s job was to sandpaper the chairs to get them ready to go into the finishing department. On weekends he would deliver furniture for the business.

Casa was living in Bensonhurst at the time and learned that Turano had another furniture store called Gemma Furniture, located on 18th Avenue. Turano offered Casa a job in the retail store to set up and clean the furniture. Casa worked there during his junior and senior years in high school when he was the captain of the soccer team. He proudly recalls leading his team to the New York City finals one year. Born and raised in Sicily, Casa was 11 years old when his family settled on Bath Avenue in Bensonhurst. Now, he runs the family business with his wife Lucia, who helped encourage Casa to open Vesta Furniture. “My wife, who came here from Naples, and I met through the furniture industry,” Casa told this paper. “While I worked for John Turano and Sons, she worked for Seaman’s Furniture and Levitz’s

Furniture. That’s how we made our connection. We were both divorced and each had two kids, a boy and a girl.” Casa places a strong emphasis on family and says that everything he and his wife do is for their children, Vincent, Joseph, Grace and Jennifer. Three of their children are married and Joseph is preparing to wed in April. Casa shared a charming anecdote about how he and Lucia came to select the name Vesta for their business. “We have five grandchildren, Vincent, Emma, Samantha, Tyler and Antonio and we took the first letter from each their names for Vesta.” And while not officially working for Vesta, all of the couple’s children and their spouses help out whenever they can. When asked what makes Vesta Furniture stand

out from other furniture stores, Casa again emphasized the importance of it being a family-run business. “Aside from the fact that we only sell quality furniture, we sincerely care about our customers,” Casa said. “I treat every customer who comes through the door with golden gloves. My wife and I are friendly people and we are very people-oriented so we make all our customers feel at home.” Casa proudly recalls a recent customer coming back just to tell him and his wife that they not only helped him with his furniture purchase but made him feel like family in the process. “He said I went other stores and they just didn’t seem to care, but you made me feel so comfortable here,” Casa recalled. “Well, he’s come back three times and that says it all.”

The family toasts the grand opening of Vesta Furniture.

Shining a light on lung cancer. To mark the beginning of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Maimonides Medical Center, 4802 10th Avenue, held a flag-raising ceremony on Fri., Nov. 2. President and CEO of Maimonides Medical Center Kenneth Gibbs discussed the challenges in the treatment in lung cancer, starting with the allocation of government funding essential to providing quality care. Citing the “tremendous amount of challenges in health care,” Gibbs said, “We witness it very visibly with our political system that can’t really handle the issue of how to correctly allocate resources for the benefit of our population with regard to healthcare. “It’s an incredibly serious issue,” he stressed, “and part of that issue is having the resources for wellness and prevention so we aren’t at the back end treating problems when they’re too late.

BRIEF HISTORY: Bedford-Stuyvesant The site of Bedford was acquired by the Dutch West India Company in the 1630s and 1640s from the Canarsee Indians, but as early as 1790, more than a quarter of its residents were of African descent. The area was primarily used for farming throughout the 18th century and was occupied by British troops after the Battle of Brooklyn in the Revolutionary War. When slavery was abolished in New York State in 1827, blacks still found it difficult to buy land, but their persistence

made them successful in eventually buying.

subway reached the area in 1936.

William Thomas and James Weeks, both African-Americans, bought land in the 1830s that would eventually become the settlements of Carrville and Weeksville, encompassing an area almost as large as modern-day Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The increased population made housing scarce and unemployment prevalent with landlords lacking the funds for upkeep on their buildings.

Transportation innovations of the Brooklyn and Jamaica Railroad in 1836 brought in Irish, German, Jewish, Scottish and Dutch Americans. New immigrants from Europe, the south United States and the Caribbean then moved in after the

With grassroots advocacy in its roots though, BedfordStuyvesant picked itself back up with the help of the BedfordStuyvesant Restoration Corporation and other advocates who created a legacy of landmarked historical sites. — Norm Goldstein

It starts with a Shake Shack and ends with a cemetery. How can you resist? If you want to walk to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn, Willoughby’s a fine way to go. For part of your stroll, you’ll notice this photogenic thoroughfare is called Willoughby Street — which begins as a pedestrian plaza alongside the 409 Fulton St. Shake Shack. On the far side of Fort Greene Park, Willoughby Street becomes Willoughby Avenue.

Eye-catching new apartment towers and landmarked houses line Willoughby Street/Avenue. It slices through Clinton Hill, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Bushwick. We split our story of our walk into three parts so we could show you as many photos as possible. This is the final installment, Part Three.

inscribed on a Lewis Avenue building facade. According to a 2015 DNAinfo story, Mike Kohn’s Alliance Private Capital Group plans to convert the portion of the property that had been St. John’s College into a 120unit apartment building.

— Continued on page 29INB —

Development Planned at St. John the Baptist Site The Prince of American Catholic Architects left an impressive legacy. Revered 19th-century architect Patrick Charles Keely designed an estimated 700 religious buildings in his long career. One of the Irish immigrant’s finest creations is St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church on Willoughby Avenue in Bed-Stuy. The Romanesque-style granite beauty’s cornerstone was laid in 1888. The years have not been kind to St. John the Baptist. These days, Masses are celebrated in a small chapel that has been carved out of the church’s sanctuary. The rest of the church’s interior is open only on special occasions. The church property at 75 Lewis Ave. also includes a mammoth building that housed St. John’s College for many decades, until that institution moved to Queens. The Vincentian Fathers established the parish and the college. Their name is

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT As the hyphenated name implies, the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, more commonly referred to as Bed-Stuy, has a dual history. In the 1630s and 1640s, the Dutch West India Company acquired woodlands from the Canarsie Indians and named it Bedford. Also known as Bedford Corners, it was the first major settlement east of what was then known as the Village of Brooklyn. Neighboring Stuyvesant Heights, farmland that became a community after the Revolutionary War, was named for Peter Stuyvesant, the last governor-general of New Amsterdam before it was ceded to the English. The neighborhood was an agricultural area through most of the 18th century, aided by black African slaves who helped the Dutch farm the lands. In 1827, when slavery was officially abolished in New York State, Brooklyn became a popular settlement area for free blacks from the South. William Thomas and James Weeks, both free blacks, pur-

chased adjoining property in the neighborhood from Henry C. Thompson, another free black property owner. Thomas’ land eventually became Carrville, which no longer exists. Weeks cut up his property into plots to sell to other blacks. This area became known as Weeksville and was home to more than 800 residents. Weeksville had its own school, churches, and its own abolitionist newspaper, The Freedman’s Torchlight. The completion of the Brooklyn Bridge and the elevated subway in the 1880s made the area more accessible and new immigrants poured into the neighborhood. Weeksville, a key part of what became BedfordStuyvesant, was largely forgotten in the 1930s. The last of its dilapidated houses were set to be demolished before they were rediscovered and restored in 1968 and the area opened for public tours as the Weeksville Heritage Center. Today, Bedford-Stuyvesant, in north-central Brooklyn, is the largest black neighborhood in New York. —Norm Goldstein

Eye on Bedford-Stuyvesant

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

A developer plans to do a residential conversion at 75 Lewis Ave.

Take a Stroll to Queens From Downtown Brooklyn, Part Three — Continued from page 28INB — We looked at city Finance Department records and found a memorandum of lease Kohn and church rep Paul A. Michels signed. The lease, which began in March 2014, has an initial 49-year term plus two renewal options, each 25 years long. If reading this gives you a sense of deja vu, it’s because a church mentioned in Part Two of this story is also planning residential development on part of its property. As for St. John the Baptist, the church and Alliance Private Capital Group jointly applied to the city Board of Standards and Appeals for a waiver so the developer wouldn’t have to build 60 parking spots. In May, the board dismissed the waiver application.

A Wedge-Shaped Apartment Building

As you continue your Willoughby Avenue stroll, you’ll soon see a recently constructed, wedged-shaped rental-apartment building beside the overhead train tracks on Broadway. Its addresses are 1000 Broadway and 865 Willoughby Ave. Yoel Goldman is a member of the LLC that did the development — and bought the site from the Rose of Sharon Church of Christ Disciples of Christ Inc. for $1,237,500 in 2013, Finance Department records show. Goldman is a Brooklyn real estate investor and developer whose firm is called All Year Management.

Long Live Theobald Engelhardt

After you cross Broadway, you’re in Bushwick. At the end of the first Willoughby Avenue block in the neighborhood, you’ll find landmarked Catherina Lipsius House at 670 Bushwick Ave.

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

Lipsius and her family owned a brewery in the area. Her American Round-Arched-style mansion, built in 1889 and 1890, has a mansard roof and a skinny rounded turret topped by a pointy roof like a witch’s hat. The red-brick house is trimmed with stone and terra cotta. Theobald Engelhardt designed Catherina Lipsius House. The Brooklyn-born, Cooper Union-educated son of German immigrants was the architect for numerous Brooklyn mansions, churches and industrial buildings.

A Statue with a Hollywood Actress’ Face

Across the street from Catherina Lipsius House, there’s a tiny city park called the Freedom Triangle. A stunning bronze World War I memorial statue graces the .004-acre greenspace. The statue designed by sculptor Pietro Montana is called Victory with Peace. It was erected in 1921. It’s an early 20th-century version of Nike, the classical Greek winged goddess — with a Hollywood actress’ face. The actress, Claudia Deloney, was a friend of more famous movie star Gloria Swanson, the city Parks Department’s website says. Once you walk past the Freedom Triangle, Willoughby Avenue crosses Myrtle Avenue, which, like Broadway, has overhanging train tracks. The first thing you’ll see is Charles Place, a picturesque dead-end street. On one side of it, there’s wedge-shaped 1215 Myrtle Ave., where a bar called Birdy’s is located. On the other, there’s 941 Willoughby Ave., a mural-covered brick rowhouse where coffee shop Little Skips can be found.

Willoughby Avenue resumes on the far side of the park, which is bordered by Irving Avenue. There are beautiful rowhouses on this corner.

Willoughby Avenue Ends at a Cemetery

When you continue strolling, there’s an especially finelooking cluster of golden-brick rowhouses with windowsills arched like eyebrows on the corner of Wyckoff Avenue. The address is 1318-1328 Willoughby Ave. As Finance Department records indicate, the property belongs to Wyckoff Heights Realty Inc., whose president is Solomon Jacobowitz. In 2006, this entity paid $4.8 million for a package of buildings on Wyckoff and Willoughby avenues that includes 1318-1328 Willoughby Ave., the records show. On the final stretch of Willoughby Avenue, the terrain is hilly. Willoughby Avenue’s last Brooklyn block runs between St. Nicholas and Cypress avenues. Then you cross Cypress Avenue, and you’re in Ridgewood, Queens. Willoughby Avenue continues into Ridgewood for a couple blocks. It ends at Woodward Avenue, which borders Linden Hill United Methodist Cemetery. The cemetery was founded in 1842 and is now nonsectarian, its website says.

This handsome apartment building is on the corner of Willoughby and Lewis avenues.

A Park Named after a Bushwick Activist

Modern apartment buildings and old-fashioned houses mingle on the next several blocks. Iglesia San Jose Patron has eye-popping murals with Biblical figures on walls surrounding a parking lot. Willoughby Avenue temporarily disappears at Knickerbocker Avenue because that’s where Maria Hernandez Park is located. The City Council named this greenspace in 1989 for a Bushwick activist who fought to get drug traffickers off the streets of her neighborhood — and was shot dead.

Keep Your Brain in Shape With Better Hearing

By Dr. Suzette Xie, Audiologist

earing loss can lead to many difficulties in everyday situations. The ability to understand a speaker can depend on factors other than hearing sensitivity. A normal hearing listener would struggle in a situation with background noise, competing signals, and lack of visual or contextual cues. These effects are magnified for a listener with impaired hearing. As approximately 37.5 million Americans suffer from hearing loss, according to the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), here are some common signs of hearing loss to look out for:

1) constantly asking for repetitions, 2) feeling that others are either speaking softly or mumbling, 3) difficulty hearing at a party or in a restaurant, 4) missing parts of a word or sentence, and 5) turning up the television volume. Unmanaged hearing loss can lead to a higher risk of isolation, social withdrawal, anxiety, depression, fatigue, memory loss, and is shown to have a higher correlation with the development of dementia. A study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society has found that the rate of cognitive decline was slowed by 75% following the use of hearing aids to manage a hearing loss. While cognitive decline cannot be stopped, this rate of reduction is considered to be significant and substantial. It is important to remember that hearing loss can affect our pediatric population as well. Universal newborn hearing screenings (NBHS) are now mandatory for all newborns. Early detection and intervention of hearing loss in newborns is essential in promoting speech, language, social, and cognitive development. The University Physicians of Brooklyn (UPB)-Brooklyn ENT-Audiology Division offers a variety of audiological and electrophysiological testing, including comprehensive diagnostic audiological evaluation and hearing tests for adults and children, auditory brainstem response testing, balance assessments, newborn hearing screenings, and hearing aid evaluations and fittings through N.Y.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN NYC College of Technology Marks 80th Anniversary of Kristallnacht Tragedy Recent Acts of Violence Against Jews Underscore Lessons of Kristallnacht By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor

The annual Kristallnacht observance that New York City College of Technology’s Jewish Faculty & Staff Association has sponsored for 30 years focuses on the night of violence against the Jewish communities and businesses

NYC College of Technology President, Dr. Russell K. Hotzler, with honorees Edith Everett and program coordinator, Dr. James Goldman.

across Europe. The year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the atrocities and a turning point in the Nazis’ rise to power. Many concerned citizens of Jewish and other faiths today see a new resurgence of neo-Nazi and white nationalist groups. This year’s City Tech observance, which took place on Nov. 7, paid homage to the 11 people killed at Tree of Life Synagogue on Oct. 27 and emphasized the urgency of educating the next generations on the Holocaust and the factors that led to the genocide. Dr. Russell Hotzler, president of the college, provided background on Kristallnacht, also known as “Night of the Broken Glass,” calling it a plundering of synagogues, homes and Jewish homes, with the intention of driving Jews out of Germany. “The timing of today’s program could not be more pointed, given recent acts of hatred and bigotry … Clearly the worst anti-Semitic act that has ever taken place in this country,” he said. Extending condolences to the victims and their families, Hotzler said, “We condemn the hatred and the violence which counter the American principles of inclusion and religious freedom as embedded in our Constitution. We stand together in condemning these actions and those who violate those values. “As an educational institution, we hold an obligation and a responsibility to instill in our students and ourselves, a fundamental understanding of right and wrong, of common respect, of justice,” Hotzler continued, with passion in his voice. “And one of the ways we do that is ensuring that we learn about and from history; that we protect the validity of that history; that we pass it on, and that we draw strength and wisdom

from it to ensure a better world,” he added. “Today’s program — our distinguished speakers, our honorees and presenters — all help to fulfill that responsibility. I sincerely welcome them and look forward to learning from them.” However, the Kristallnacht observance also paid tribute to the survivors, and to the people who — notwithstanding great risk to themselves — hid and protected Jews. One of the beneficiaries of this protection, Brooklyn Heights resident Suzanne Loebl, a Belgium Holocaust hidden child, received the City Tech JFSA Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award. Edith Everett, an educator, community leader, philanthropist and humanitarian, received the college’s 2018 Distin-

guished Humanitarian Award. As the gathering celebrated those who saved the Jews saved during the Holocaust, another dramatic moment developed during the Nov. 7 program when a quick-acting City Tech student named Raven Hampton came to the rescue of Loebl’s husband when he fell unconscious during the program. Hampton, who has experience as an EMT, resuscitated Mr. Loebl and administered CPR. Dr. James Goldman, representing the Jewish Faculty & Staff Association, commended Hampton in an email distributed to the college’s president and administration, writing, “You are an exemplar for City Tech students and for all EMS individuals.”

Rev. Dr. Storrs Marked 50th Jubilee As Church of the Pilgrims’ Pastor By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor

Earlier this year, the American Guild of Organists-Brooklyn Chapter awarded three young promising musicians prizes as part of its George R. Mathison Memorial Scholarship Competition. This Sunday, Nov.18, at 5 p.m., the Brooklyn AGO chapter will host the Scholarship Winners’ Organ Recital at St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church. This year’s winners are Austin Philemon, of the Manhattan School of Music; and Evan Wesley Currie and Roshan Chakane, both of

Rutgers University. These brilliant performers are preparing a banquet of organ works which they’ll perform on the church’s landmark 1925 Skinner pipe organ. The suggested donation for this concert is $20, all of which is applied to the George R. Mathison Memorial Scholarship Competition Fund for future years. As is always the case, when the term “suggested donation” is used, it is truly just a suggestion; the AGO will gratefully accept donations of any size.

The Brooklyn Eagle of Sat., Nov. 14, 1896 carried full page coverage of the anticipated “semi-centennial” of the Rev. Dr. Richard Salter Storrs, pastor of the Church of the Pilgrims. Storrs had been born in Braintree, Mass. on Aug. 21, 1821. At the time of this golden jubilee, he was in his 76th year. Situated at the corner of Henry and Remsen streets, Church of the Pilgrims actually pre-dated its sister Congregational community, Plymouth Church, which was established three years later, with the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher as its founding minister. The Church of the Pilgrims was formally established on Dec. 22, 1844, although a church building had begun construction just five months earlier. That building would finally be dedicated in May, 1846. But Storrs, like his colleague Beecher, would also gain renown, and would actually live to serve Church of the Pilgrim for 50 years.

ON NOV. 15, 1948, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “London, Nov. 15 (U.P.) — Princess Elizabeth rested comfortably at Buckingham Palace today after the birth of her first son, a prince who may someday be king, and all Britain threw off its somber austerity reserve for a rousing celebration. The prince, second in line to the British throne after his mother, arrived at 9:14 p.m. (4:14 p.m. Brooklyn time) yesterday. Elizabeth, 22, was in labor less than two hours, and the delivery was understood to have been relatively easy … The Daily Express speculated that the child would be known as Prince George of Edinburgh. Elizabeth was known to have a strong preference for the inclusion of the name of her father, King George, in that of her firstborn … Several hundred persons gathered this morning before the palace where 10,000 massed last night when the birth was imminent and shouted their regard for the members of the royal family. Of Philip they roared, ‘For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.’”  ON NOV. 15, 1860, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Last night the Wide Awakes gave vent to their enthusiasm at the recent victory of the party, for whose success they labored so earnestly, by a parade. The companies participating were the South Brooklyn Irrepressibles, Lincoln Battalion of the Rocky Mountain Club, Eleventh Ward Zouaves and Eleventh Ward Wide-Awakes. They formed on Montague Street about 8 o’clock, where they received the City Wide Awakes from New York. The line of march was then taken up through Henry, Union and Court streets, First Place, Clinton, Pierrepont, Hicks, Clark, Fulton, Tillary and Adams streets, Myrtle Avenue, Prince, Willoughby and Duffield streets, Fulton Avenue to the City Hall, where the procession was dismissed. The torches, the music, the steady bearing and the picturesque effect of the lights and the uniforms attracted a large crowd in the several streets through which the procession passed. Several banners were carried in the procession, one of which bore Jefferson’s apothegm — ‘Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.’”  ON NOV. 15, 1889, the Eagle reported, “The World newspaper writer, who uses the pen name of Nellie Bly, and the book reviewer of the Cosmopolitan magazine, Miss Elizabeth Bisland, have become rivals in a novel task. The newspaper has started Nellie Bly around the earth eastward and the magazine has started Miss Bisland around the earth westward. The object of each is to accomplish the circuit of the globe in the shortest possible time, and each will be desirous of traveling more quickly than the other. Nellie Bly left on a steamer for Southampton yesterday morning. Miss Bisland left for the Pacific Coast on the Central Hudson express at 6 o’clock last night. The ocean voyager did not know the railway traveler was to undertake the trip, because arrangements for the latter were not made until the programme of Nellie Bly’s journey had been announced. Each is expected to arrive in New York about the 25th of January, the object being to ascertain if the journey can be made inside of 75 days.”

ON NOV. 13, 1951, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Brooklyn’s War Memorial, complete in its park-like setting and fittingly dedicated, stood today in Cadman Plaza Park, a tribute to more than 7,000 Brooklynites who gave their lives in World War II and a testimonial to the borough’s faith in the future and its hopes for peace. The shafts of the late afternoon sun lighted the white limestone and granite monument yesterday as at the close of the ceremonies the Rev. Daniel J. Potterton, chaplain, Catholic War veterans, prayed: ‘Bless our war dead, oh God. Enlighten our leaders in Thy peace. To Thee, oh God, we look that we may never have to build another war memorial.’ An American legionnaire in red and blue dress uniform then solemnly played taps from a raised platform. A delegation of white-haired Gold Star Mothers echoed the closing prayer.”  ON NOV. 13, 1918, the Eagle’s Washington bureau reported, “Rep. Frederick C. Hicks of Long Island has introduced a bill to make Nov. 11 a national holiday, to be known as Victory Day. Up to the present time Congress has never created a national holiday by legislation. It is Mr. Hicks’ idea that Nov. 11, which marks the surrender of Germany, should always be celebrated in commemoration of the achievements of the American Army. His bill is as follows: “That in recognition of the glorious victory won for human liberty by the American forces in the conflict against Germany and her Allies and to perpetuate for all time the bravery, courage and valor of those forces, by which a complete and absolute victory was obtained, Nov. 11 is hereby declared to be in each succeeding year a national holiday throughout the United States, its possessions and the territories thereof. That this national holiday shall be designated Victory Day.”  ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON WAS BORN ON NOV. 13, 1850. The Scottish author is best known for “Child’s Garden of Verses” and novels such as “Treasure Island” and “Kidnapped.” Stevenson died in Samoa in 1894.

You Should Know This • The “Betty Boop” cartoon character was the subject of a lawsuit by the popular singer Helen Kane, who claimed her singing style had been ripped off.


• Billy West, the voice of Stimpy, is also the voice of Fry on Futurama. • Mark Hamill was actually the voice of The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and the Hobgoblin in Spider-Man.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Nov. 14, 1918

ON NOV. 14, 1918, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “With the American Army in France, Tuesday, Nov. 12 (A.P.) — To be taken prisoner by American troops was the experience last Friday of Brig. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, a brigade commander of the 42nd Division. The 1st and 42nd Divisions were advancing rapidly that day toward Sedan and in the region of Autrecourt the lines of the two divisions became crisscrossed. Gen. MacArthur, who was at the head of the advance of his men, was taken prisoner by soldiers of the First Division, who could not believe that any Americans were ahead of them. The situation was explained quickly and Gen. MacArthur released.”  ON NOV. 14, 1931, the Eagle reported, “Little Rock, Ark., Nov. 14 — Gov. [Harvey] Parnell has appointed Mrs. Hattie Caraway to the United States Senate to succeed her husband, Thaddeus H. Caraway. The governor has also made it known that he will ask the State Democratic Committee to nominate her to fill the unexpired term ending in 1933. The committee meets Dec. 1. Mrs. Caraway is said to be willing to accept the appointment. Mrs. Caraway will be the second woman to occupy a seat in the Senate. In 1922 Mrs. Rebecca L. Felton of Georgia served a courtesy appointment for two days.”  ON NOV. 14, 1940, the Eagle reported, “The Board of Estimate in City Hall today voted — amid scenes of disorder and screams of ‘You skunk!’ — to erect a $17,000,000 sewage disposal plant at the foot of 69th St., near Owl’s Head Park, in Bay Ridge. Bay Ridge residents strenuously opposed a sewage plant in their midst and a large delegation, headed by State Senator Philip Kleinfeld and City Councilmember Joseph Sharkey, was there to express that opposition … From the crowded audience, made up almost completely of Bay Ridge citizens, came a chorus of boos and catcalls when the final vote was taken, and a woman in the crowd screamed at [City Council President Newbold] Morris, ‘You skunk, you! I hope you get the stink in your nose.’ ‘I’d like to see the sewage plant on Park Ave.,’ added [Borough President John] Cashmore. ‘Mr. Morris would not be so ready to approve it.’”

You Should Know This • An estimated one in ten of Americans could be a blood relative to one of the original 102 pilgrims who arrived aboard the Mayflower in 1620. • The day Congress voted us free from British rule is July 2, 1776. July 4 is just when John Hancock put the first signature on the Declaration of Independence to spread the word. • Who was the only president born in Illinois? Ronald Reagan. • When told that his salary was greater than that of President Warren G. Harding, New York Yankees legend said, “I had a better year than he did.”

Inside the Serious Business of Opening a Comedy Club

On opening night at Eastville, Brooklyn’s only dedicated comedy club, the 120-seat venue was packed. By Michael Stahl The Bridge

After nearly a decade of running a successful comedy club in the East Village, Marko and Tia Elgart’s business needed a new home. Their lease was expiring, and they had been looking for a new spot in the obvious place, Manhattan. Then, one day while they were exploring the area around Barclays Center, the couple considered Brooklyn. They saw young people and tourists enjoying the new nightlife and shopping the Apple Store and Whole Foods. “And with the train station, it’s more accessible than almost anywhere in the five boroughs,” Marko told The Bridge in a recent interview. Plus, he and his wife already live in Park Slope, which they’ve called home the past eight years. Marko and Tia were also well aware at the time that Brooklyn did not have a dedicated comedy club. “Brooklyn has a lot of rooms that do comedy,” Elgart said. “There’s Union Hall, there’s also The Bell House, but those are event spaces,” he said, not the same type of venue as, say, Carolines, the famous comedy club in Times Square. Indeed, for all the culture in Brooklyn — from the mainstream events at Barclays Center to the popping parties at House of Yes to the fine art of the Brooklyn Museum —the borough hadn’t had a comedy club of its own… until now. In July, the Elgarts’ new venue, Eastville Comedy Club, opened its doors to paying customers for the first time at 487 Atlantic Ave., right on the edge of the Brooklyn Cultural District.

On opening night, in front of a 120-seat full house, revered performers like Janeane Garofalo (“Wet Hot American Summer”), Todd Barry (“Flight of the Conchords”) and Christian Finnegan (“Chappelle’s Show”) nailed their punch lines and sent drink-swigging comedy fans into convulsions. The new

spot is sleeker than the old one, with a freshly plastered subway-tile stage backdrop, high beamed ceilings and an exposed-brick bar area just past the all-glass facade. While the move seems like a natural migration now, the road from Manhattan to Brooklyn had its share of potholes. After

founding their original club on East 4th Street in 2008 — Marko had started producing shows after a short stint as a stand-up performer — they had built up a loyal following, based on performances by rising stars and recognizable stage veterans like Sarah Silverman. continued on back page

The Atlantic Avenue club is near other cultural venues, including Brooklyn Academy of Music and Barclays Center.

But it was time to go. The Elgarts had landlord troubles and felt the need for an upgrade. “The old space was kind of a shithole dive, which was cool 10 years ago, but not really anymore,” Marko said. “Our lease was expir-

The Elgarts scoped out a new location on Avenue A, situated within the boundaries of Community Board 3, the same district as their old club. They crossed their fingers and hoped for the best.

After six weeks of renovation at the new space, the club reopened, retaining its original name because, Elgart said, most people don’t make the connection between the moniker and the original East Village location. Nor did he want to throw away a decade of branding efforts. Summer was a slow season to launch a new club, but Elgart expects Eastville to recoup the cost of the move Comic Akaash Singh performing on opening night.
