Last week’s heat wave saw temperatures approach the century mark in Brooklyn, topping out at 98 degrees on Montague Street last Tuesday afternoon. The excessive heat continued this past week, with temperatures once again in the 90s, though the forecast calls for cooler temps this weekend.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is sending members of his administration on a marijuana “listening tour” to learn if New Yorkers think pot should be legalized and regulated. One of the sessions will take place in Brooklyn on Sept. 25. “Community input is critical as we work to draft balanced and comprehensive legislation on a regulated marijuana program in New York,” Cuomo said in a release last Thursday. In the meantime, the Brooklyn Heights Press conducted its own mini listening tour to see how Brooklynites feel about the issue. They had a lot to say. “I think if it’s legalized then people who are currently serving sentences for it need to be freed and receive reparations,” Nihaarika, visiting the Borough Hall farmers market with her friends Aaron and Mercy, told the Heights Press. “I think it’s a good idea and it needs to be seen as a racial justice issue … and the harm that has been done has to be acknowledged,” Mercy said. “And the people who have been harmed and whose lives have been ruined or stolen by the criminalization of marijuana need to be receiving justice … Whoever the governor ends up being,” she said. “Sounds pretty good to me,” Aaron added. “He should legalize marijuana for medicinal purposes. Because a lot of cancer patients definitely need it,” said Kenneth, visiting Montague Street with a friend. “Lot of people going through glaucoma or cataracts, they need it.” He was not in favor of legalizing pot for recreational uses, however. “Naw, I don’t believe in recreational. Look, you talking to somebody who’s been clean now going on 32 years. I know what one drug leads to,” Kenneth said. “But for medicinal purposes, I think it should be legalized.” Two women visiting Brooklyn Heights from Manhattan were cool with the idea. “Great idea,” said one, who didn’t want her name used. “I’m fine with it,” her friend added. Kate and Will Hughes, with their young children at the Borough Hall Farmers Market, were both in favor of legalizing marijuana. “I don’t have a good reason, but yes,” Kate said. “I hear you smoke it, you get smarter, but I don’t know,” joked Shawn Johnson, a Bedford-Stuyvesant resident working on the construction project at the site of the former Brooklyn Heights Library. “Beats drinking, though,” he said. “I hear a lot of guys talking about when you’re drinking, you get more drunk, get in trouble. They say marijuana helps you think better, relax your body. You don’t go around fighting everybody. “But I worry about the kids,” Johnson added. “Whatever they see parents do, they start. We don’t need no 8-year-olds and 11year-olds around smoking marijuana. “As far as the edibles, that’s even more dangerous for the kids,” he added. “I can leave it in the house and my daughter could say, ‘Hey, dad, I ate that candy thing on the table.’ And then I wonder why my girl is giggling all day. And I say, ‘She’s high.’ So, there’s a lot to thinking about all that stuff.” In January, Cuomo commissioned a study, led by the Department of Health, to assess the impact of legalized marijuana in New York State. The study found that the positive impacts of a “regulated marijuana market” in the state would “outweigh the potential negative impacts, and that areas that may be a cause for concern can be mitigated with regulation and proper use of public education that is tailored to address key populations.” Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul said the state was engaged in “a thoughtful process” concerning legalizing marijuana. Fifteen listening sessions will be conducted across New York state.

Brooklyn Bridge Park Wants You To Help Design New Squibb Pool
Will Brooklyn Heights Be Able to Manage the Crowds? By Mary Frost
Brooklyn Heights Press
It’s not often that New York City residents get to help design a new public swimming pool. But that’s what’s happening in Brooklyn Heights, where Brooklyn Bridge Park is overseeing the construction of a public pool in littleused Squibb Park. The pool will be a permanent replacement for the park’s beloved but temporary Pop-Up Pool, just wrapping up its final season. While Squibb Park is not actually a part of Brooklyn Bridge Park, in an agreement with the city, Brooklyn Bridge Park will be overseeing the new pool’s development, operation and maintenance. Squibb Park sits just above Brooklyn Bridge Park on Columbia Heights. It is connected to Brooklyn Bridge Park via the often-broken Squibb Bridge footbridge. Brooklyn Bridge Park says it wants public input on the new swimming hole “to ensure that the design of the pool reflects the needs and
interests of the community.” Two identical community sessions will be held at P.S. 8 at 37 Hicks St. — the first on Wednesday, Sept. 12 from 6-8:30 p.m. and the second on Sunday, Sept. 16 from 2-4:30 p.m. The park asks that people attend just one of the meetings.
A Beach with Chairs Or More Swim Lanes?
The park will be getting residents’ opinions on issues like the preferred size and depth of the pool, types of amenities people want there (such as green space, a beach with chairs, accessibility or classes), and types of food concessions. Another decision is what to do with the facility during the offseason. Possibilities mentioned include yoga and exercise classes, a holiday market or a skate park, but the park is open to other ideas.
What About the Crowds?
The park also says it wants to hear people’s
concerns about whether Squibb Park is the right location altogether for a new public pool. Roughly five million visitors to Brooklyn Bridge Park were predicted for the summer of 2018, a number wildly exceeding the city’s earlier estimates on expected park traffic. On Aug. 9, The New York Times called Brooklyn Bridge Park “one of the city’s most crowded parks.” A number of Heights residents have expressed concern about the huge influx of park goers tramping through the neighborhood, in some cases causing disruption and damage. The 84th Precinct assigned eight additional police officers to the park over the summer to help manage the crowds and occasional outbreaks of violence. In a discussion forum in the Brooklyn Heights Blog, a commenter who calls himself Heights Guy wrote in July, “I bought in Brooklyn Heights for many reasons; one of them was the quietness of the neighborhood. I am not against the park. I like the park. I simply wish I had my quiet neighborhood back.”
In an online opinion survey, the park includes questions on how people feel about “pedestrian traffic that the new pool might cause in the park or surrounding neighborhoods” and “the number of people that might come to the pool.” Another asks people to rank their concern about traffic congestion. A group of parents whose kids have been swimming at the Pop-Up Pool, however, are wildly enthusiastic about getting a permanent pool. “I think the park is probably going to outdo themselves ultimately by creating an amazing design,” Love Our Pool member Lee Levine, who was a regular at the Pop-Up Pool with his son Izzy, told the Brooklyn Heights Press when the new pool was announced in June. “The community’s going to be involved in the design of the park this summer, and I’m really excited it’s determined by community input, people who use the pool, as opposed to someone who’s detached.” The construction of the pool is estimated to cost from $10-$15 million. Officials said they hope for completion to be finished sometime in 2020.

Life in Coney Island: Beach, Boardwalk, Rides and GED Classes BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
oney Island is world famous for its glorious beaches, its landmark Boardwalk, the Cyclone and Nathan’s Famous. But beyond the tourist attractions, Coney Island is also a vibrant neighborhood whose residents work hard, pay their taxes and who sometimes need extra services to help them move their lives forward. Residents who never graduated from high school are getting a second chance in life thanks to an innovative new program championed by a local lawmaker who has teamed up with a city agency and two non-profit organizations to bring free high school equivalency classes to the neighborhood.

PAL Touts Success of Early Childhood Education Program BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
he Police Athletic League is famous for the recreational programs it runs for children during the summer as well as for the “Police Commissioner for a Day” essay contest it sponsors every spring. But the 104-year-old organization also operates a program that doesn’t get much notice: an early childhood education program with sites in Brooklyn and Queens. “Preparing our children and families for success through quality early education is our priority,” said Dr. Asneth Council, PAL’s director of Child Care and Nutrition. More than 600 children attend classes at PAL’s Early Childhood Education Centers including Brooklyn’s PAL Carey Gardens, PAL La Puerta Abierta, and the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Early Learning Program in Coney Island; PAL World of Creative Experiences in Brownville and PAL Roberta Bright in East New York. PAL centers incorporate educational ideas that are used in Head Start as
well as in universal pre-kindergarten classes. The children get the opportunity to learn the alphabet and how to count. Science and music are part of the curriculum and the students take part in dance programs in class. The youngsters also learn about nature by planting their own gardens. PAL, which has been providing early childhood education for more than 40 years, encourages parents to be deeply involved, according to the organization’s representatives. Parents accompany classes on trips, attend monthly family workshops and participate in programs to increase literacy. As part of a program called the Bridging the Achievement Gap Literacy Initiative, children and parents read a minimum of 15 books. The books are then incorporated into lesson plans in classrooms. New York City’s PAL, funded in 1914, serves more than 30,000 youngsters a year with recreational, educational, cultural and social programs. For more information, visit: www. palnyc.org.

Through the examined histories of and around Empire, connections between roller skating and larger narratives of race, class, and urbanization in America are uncovered. Beyond the roller disco movement, the exhibit traces the history of roller skating in the United States, highlighting the diversity of rinks around the country and the unique history of skating in New York City, which was home to over 20 rinks at its
QUIETER PLACES Marshall LaCount’s Quieter Places paintings are a collective approach to places quieter than the city; quieter than a mind treading in traumas; quieter than political despondency. These Quieter Places are beyond certain borders. They are elsewhere, for they are not places, they are images. In this case, they are images constructed by aching hands and sore arms which have managed to pull away from other work, made in less quiet places. Plaster is shaped alongside acrylic paint, wallboard, spray paint. Graffiti and the constant buffing of graffiti get a nod. The works are playful: primary colors occupy measured spaces in largely white fields of textured plaster. This play is a renegotiating of borders. When: Daily Through October, 12 – 9 p.m. Where: Greenpoint/Exhibit Salon (182 Driggs Avenue) BROOKLYN: A NEW HOME, A NEW LIFE This exhibition features stories about historical Brooklynites: Harriet Judson, John Roebling, Nathan Handwerker, and Shirley Chisholm, as well as Ravi Ragbir, a contemporary immigration activist.

A year of radical hope, groundbreaking art and literature, and passionate activism, 1968 left a longstanding legacy of reactionary movements and counterrevolutions, galvanized by political uprisings of the time. Based on articles in the “1968 Now” Bookforum issue about Yukio Mishima’s ideological impact on today’s white nationalists, Kristin Ross’s book May ’68 and its Afterlives, Gore Vidal’s Myra Breckinridge, and the generative conflicts of second-wave feminism, this panel will explore how the books of the time heralded a backlash that continues to shape our culture and politics today.

any of our readers may be wondering why the weekly Faces Behind the Food column is not appearing in this week’s InBrooklyn. Well, the reason is simple, we want to explain exactly what Faces is and why it has become a destination for our readers and how it benefits the people we cover in the column. First of all, the heart of any establishment is the people who work behind the scenes to make it what it is. That would be everyone from the passionate owner of a restaurant to the wait staff, bartender and customers who loyally frequent their favorite dining and entertainment establishments. Faces loves to share the weekly happenings that range from a co-owner of a popular restaurant who just happens to be an award-winning basketball coach in his spare time, to the owner of a nationally known baking brand that started out in 1930 as a small, family-owned Middle Eastern bakery. From Bay Ridge to Brooklyn Heights, Greenpoint to Williamsburg, there are so many stories to tell and Faces is the place to find out what makes a bar, restaurant, bakery, pizzeria or beer hall a place someone would want to discover and ultimately frequent. Those who live in Bay Ridge know that Chadwick’s is one of the finest restaurants in the neighborhood, but they also might want to venture out to Brooklyn Heights to enjoy a meal at the River Café, especially when they learn that Buzzy O’Keeffe, the restaurant’s owner, is being awarded the prestigious Concierge Choice Award in October for having built an attraction that brings people to New York. That’s just some of what Faces offers. It’s a virtual culinary trip across Brooklyn as you find out what makes a restaurant a true destination spot. So, keep talking to Faces and letting us share your stories with our readers . . . or should we say, your potential loyal customers.

Are you angst-ridden because summer’s ending soon? A ferry ride to Greenpoint is a fine antidote. A sunny day, a gray day — either one will do. A trip on any NYC Ferry route will make you smile. But the North Brooklyn shoreline route is especially beguiling. Start your ride in Brooklyn Bridge Park — where the famed Fulton Ferry service launched in 1814. Robert Fulton’s newly invented steamship took just 12 minutes to cross the East River — which made it eminently practical for people who worked in Manhattan to live in Brooklyn. In present-day Brooklyn Bridge Park, Pier 1, where the NYC Ferry landing is located, is a visitor magnet. It’s an ideal spot to snap selfies with the World Trade Center and the Brooklyn Bridge as backdrops. Of course, you could spend an entire day strolling around the park and hanging out in 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge’s rooftop bar. That’s a story for another day. After you step onto the ferry, you get an eyeful of the former headquarters of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The red electric letters atop 30 Columbia Heights that famously said “Watchtower” for a half-century have been removed from the building. Current property owner Columbia Heights Associates is pursuing a challenge it filed with the city Board of Standards and Appeals to a surprising city Buildings Department decision that says nope, you can’t put new letters on the old sign’s frame.
Spitzer Enterprises’ Shimmering Towers
As the ferry heads up the North Brooklyn shoreline, it travels past Instagram-worthy landmarks such as the DUMBO Clocktower and Jane’s Carousel.

Former Postal Worker Charged in B’klyn Court With Lying to Obtain $160K in Workers’ Comp A complaint charging Joseph Penatello, a former driver for the U.S. Postal Service and a Brooklyn resident, with falsely claiming injuries to receive more than $160,000 in disability payments was unsealed last Friday in federal Eastern District Court in Brooklyn. “As alleged, the defendant was employed at flea markets at the same time he falsely claimed to be incapable of working for the Postal Service due to a medical condition,” said Richard Donoghue, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York. “Such disability scams are nothing less than stealing from our taxpayers and will not be ignored.” “The federal Workers’ Compensation program was created to help those who are recovering from injuries obtained on the job,” stated USPS Inspector General Special Agent-inCharge Matthew Modafferi. “When a Postal Service employee defrauds the Workers’ Compensation program, the special agents of the U.S. Postal

Eagle photo by Mary Frost Service Office of Inspector General will work tirelessly with the U.S. Attorney’s Office.” According to the complaint, Penatello began receiving workers’ compensation benefits in 2001, after he sustained a neck and back injury while working for the USPS. In order to continue receiving those benefits, between March 2014 and April 2018, Penatello submitted documents to the Department of Labor falsely claiming that he was totally disabled and unable to work due to his medical condition. Penatello also claimed that he was not earning any income, according to the Attorney General’s office. However, on more than 20 occasions between 2014 and 2018, special agents videorecorded him working as an organizer at flea markets in Brooklyn and Manhattan. The video also showed Penatello engaging in strenuous activities, such as carrying heavy objects, standing for long periods of time and driving a motor vehicle. On one occasion, Penatello allegedly told an undercover special agent that he runs flea markets five days a week and up to 12 hours per day. The government’s case is being handled by the Office’s General Crimes Section. Assistant U.S. Attorney Erin Reid is in charge of the prosecution. Penatello was scheduled to make his initial appearance Friday afternoon before U.S. Magistrate Judge Vera M. Scanlon. —Information courtesy of U.S. Attorney’s Office for The Eastern District
Recently in Brooklyn federal court, Evan Greebel, a former partner at the New York office of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP who served as outside counsel to Retrophin, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company, was sentenced by Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto to 18 months in prison for conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit securities fraud, to be followed by three years’ supervised release. The court also ordered Greebel to pay $116,462.03 in forfeiture and $10,447,979 in restitution. Greebel was convicted by a federal jury in December 2017, following an 11week trial, for his role in two interrelated fraud schemes with Retrophin CEO Martin Shkreli and others, in which Greebel, Shkreli and others stole millions of dollars in cash and stock from Retrophin and manipulated the price and trading volume of Retrophin stock. Richard P. Donoghue, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York; and William F. Sweeney Jr.; assistant director-in-charge, FBI, New York Field Office, announced the sentence. “[The] sentence reinforces our message that attorneys who facilitate crimes will be held accountable for their actions,” Donoghue said. “Evan Greebel leveraged his legal training and the trust placed in him by Retrophin’s Board of Directors to commit serious crimes, including the theft of millions of dollars in cash and stock from the very company he was hired to represent. In doing so, Greebel broke the law and violated the ethical duties he owed to his client.” Between 2011 and 2014, Greebel conspired with Shkreli and others to misappropriate Retrophin’s assets in order to pay off defrauded investors in Shkreli’s hedge funds, MSMB Capital Management LP (MSMB Capital) and MSMB Healthcare Management LP (MSMB Healthcare). Specifically, Greebel negotiated and prepared so-called settlement agreements with various of the defrauded investors, causing Retrophin to reimburse them more than $2 million in cash and stock. Greebel also arranged for other defrauded investors to enter into sham consulting agreements with Retrophin as a means to settle liabilities owed by Shkreli and the hedge funds.
In addition, between 2012 and 2014, Greebel and Shkreli schemed to defraud investors in Retrophin by attempting to control illegally the price and trading volume of Retrophin’s stock. As part of the scheme, they concealed Shkreli’s beneficial ownership and control of most of Retrophin’s free-trading shares, recruited associates of Shkreli to be nominee holders of those shares and prevented the nominees from selling the shares. Some of the shares were used to settle liabilities owed
by the MSMB hedge funds and Shkreli. “As an attorney well-versed in the law, Greebel was expected to abide by it — not violate it,” Sweeney stated. “Instead, he used his professional expertise to prepare illegitimate agreements, allowing him and others to carry out their illegal activity. His sentencing today serves as a reminder to others that there are consequences for this type of behavior.” —Information from the U.S. Attorney’s Office

FAITH IN BROOKLYN
Landmark Heights Church Will Be Rededicated As a Pro-Cathedral By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor INBrooklyn
It is a story of heritage and tenacity. Back in 1868, the Rev. Dr. Abram Littlejohn, the rector of Holy Trinity Church at Clinton and Montague streets, was named the first bishop of the newly formed Episcopal Diocese of Long Island. The Diocese of Long Island was created that year a special convention hosted at Holy Trinity Church, which became the pro-cathedral for the diocese, while the new cathedral in Garden City was built. Bishop Littlejohn’s

consecration service took place on January 27, 1869. As the diocese begins its 150th anniversary celebration, the eighth and current bishop, the Rt. Rev Lawrence Provenzano, wanted to honor the heritage of Holy Trinity Church, which is now St. Ann & Holy Trinity Church. Holy Trinity Church, constructed between 1844 and 1847 and officially opened on April 25, 1847, is known worldwide for its Bolton stained glass windows. Neighboring St. Ann’s Church, named for benefactor Ann Sands, was originally on Washington Street. before construction of the Brooklyn Bridge forced its move to Clinton and Livingston streets, just three blocks away from Holy Trinity. The merger of these two churches— and reopening of Holy Trinity—during the 1970s brought each a new chapter of ministry. Holy Trinity had closed after the famous scandal involving the Melish father-son priest duo during the height of the McCarthy era. St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church will again become a pro-cathedral during a festival celebration on Sunday, Sept. 16, that is open to the public, and which will begin with a procession from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, along Montague Street, to St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church for a 5:30 p.m. liturgy. Bishop Provenzano said, “As we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the diocese this year, this pro-cathedral designation is both a recognition of the historic role of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity in our diocese and a mission-focused strategy to reinvigorate our ministry to the people in the City of New York, especially the five million people who call Brooklyn and Queens home. St. Ann & the Holy Trinity will become the official place from which the bishop of the diocese can speak to the people of New York City.” The diocese now includes Nassau and Suffolk Counties, stretching from western Brooklyn out to Montauk Point. Bishop Provenzano clarified that, “We will not be replicating at all the primary seat of the bishop here in Garden City.” Rather, having the Pro-Cathedral in Brooklyn “is a strategic move in the sense of the ministry of our diocese.”
Forum @ St. Ann’s Panels Explore ‘Manuals for Living,’ Citizen Activism The Forum @St. Ann’s, a regular series at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, will continue as the landmark parish again becomes a pro-cathedral. This month, the forum presents “Manuals for Living” and “Women and Citizen Activism,” taking place on Sept. 13 and 15, respectively. During “Manuals for Living (Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7 p.m.), the Rev. Ana Levy-Lyons of neighboring First Unitarian Church offers a fresh reinterpretation of the Ten Commandments; author Michael Robbins suggests a highbrow/ lowbrow mixture of poetry and pop music; lawyer and writer Justin Jamail draws upon the New York School poets; and medievalist Jacqueline de Weever captures something paradoxically ephemeral and pragmatic in images of exquisite flora.
Fr. John Denaro, rector of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, will moderate the program. During “Women and Citizen Activism” (Saturday, Sept. 15 at 3 p.m.), a group of notable women writers engage the phenomenon of emerging citizen activists. The panelist roster includes Eliza Griswold, author of the acclaimed recently published book, “Amity and Prosperity: One Family and the Fracturing of America;” Mona Eltahawy, a reporter who was brutally attacked in Egypt in 2011—an experience that shaped her life as an activist; and Anastasia Higgenbotham, who covers social justice issues and writes children’s books. Reproductive rights activist, writer, and filmmaker. Jennifer Baumgardner will moderate this discussion.

The pro-cathedral will serve as an official “seat” or cathedra of the bishop and it will host special services on occasion as well as ministry events and programs. The rector of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity, the Rev. John Denaro, said, “The designation of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity as a pro-cathe-
dral is a privilege that affirms our church’s enduring significance as a house of prayer and community resource. We joyfully accept our new responsibilities to the bishop, fellow Episcopalians and neighbors, and embrace this larger opportunity to extend Christian hospitality.”
‘Godspell’ Original Cast Member Peggy Gordon Will Speak at BrooklynONE Productions An acclaimed run earlier this summer of brooklynONE Productions’ “Godspell,” has brought new performances dates this weekend, with an appearance by original cast member Peggy Gordon. “Godspell,” composed by Stephen Schwartz with a libretto adapted from the Gospel of Matthew by John-Michael Tebelak, originated in 1970 as Tebelak’s master’s thesis project in Pittsburgh. “Godspell” opened off-Broadway in 1971, and has been produced in many regional, school and church community theatres since. BrooklynONE’s production, directed by
bkONE Founder and Artistic Director Anthony Marino, sets “Godspell” in a Lutheran church reimagined as an abandoned 1990s-era New York City punk club and features musical performances by punk band the Government. The venue is Redeemer-St. John’s Lutheran Church, 939 83rd Street in Dyker Heights. Gordon will participate in post-show talkback at the September 8 matinee. Performances will be held on Friday, Sept. 7 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 8 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 9 at 4 p.m. All seats are $20. Tickets are available via www.bkONE.org.
Heights Clergy Will Lead 17th Sept. 11 Promenade Service “Down to the River to Pray,” is the focus of this year’s 9-11 Remembrance that the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith Clergy Association is organizing. The service takes place on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 7 p.m., around sunset. All ages and all faiths are invited to join the Brooklyn Heights Interfaith Clergy Association in remembering 9/11 with rituals of water and release.
This communal moment of “letting go” will make space for participants to release what needs releasing into a vessel of living water. Participants will share from a variety of faith traditions that look forward to what the months ahead hold for the community as neighbors and as people of faith. In case of inclement weather, First Presbyterian Church (124 Henry St., near Clark) will host the service.

Four reasons you should review your beneficiary designations
aby boomers have been planning and saving for retirement for decades. They are also planning their legacy–creating wills, trusts and other sophisticated estate planning strategies to transfer their wealth to the next generation. However, most people may not realize their IRAs and qualified retirement plans–a large part of their estate–are not subject to probate nor affected by the terms of a person's will. These assets will pass to the next generation determined solely by the client's beneficiary designation form. Accordingly, the beneficiary designation form is one of your most important estate planning documents but it is often overlooked when creating a legacy plan. Here are some common beneficiary designation mistakes to avoid:
ESTATE AS A BENEFICIARY
Many people unintentionally name their estate as beneficiary of their retirement accounts. Some people will actually direct their retirement assets to be paid "pursuant to the terms of my will." Others simply fail to complete their beneficiary designation form or forget to name a new person's estate by default, which is probably the worst beneficiary for IRAs and retirement plans. IRAs and qualified retirement
plans–assets that normally avoid probate– will become subject to probate when paid to the estate. The probate process can be long, cumbersome and expensive. Further, these assets may have to be liquidated and paid to the estate within five years after the person's death. While individual beneficiaries can elect to have IRA assets paid over their lifetime, thereby "stretching" their tax liability over many years, estates cannot. Finally, estates are subject to a much higher income tax rate than individuals. This can result in more money going to the IRS than necessary. To avoid this mistake, make sure you have an up-to-date primary and contingent beneficiary designated for all your retirement accounts.
TRUST AS A BENEFICIARY
Many attorneys like to use trusts to facilitate an effective transfer of wealth and maximize all available gift, estate and generation skipping tax exemptions. However, there are several dangers to having retirement assets paid to a trust. First, the IRS generally requires the assets to be paid to the trust within five years after the death of the client. The "stretch" rules generally do not apply to trusts unless the trust is drafted to be a "look through" trust. If the trust is a "look through" trust, the
IRS permits you to "look through" the trust and "stretch" the IRA to the trust over the life expectancy of the oldest trust beneficiary. Trusts that fail to be a "look through" trust include those that have beneficiaries that are not individuals, such a charity, estate or another trust. Second, it can be expensive to establish and maintain these trusts. If an IRA is "stretched" to a "look through" trust, a lifetime of legal, trustee and administrative fees can significantly reduce the amount the ultimate beneficiaries will receive. Unless there is a compelling non-tax reason to name a trust as beneficiary of an IRA or retirement plan, you should avoid making a costly mistake. Speak with your estate planning attorney about the pros and cons to naming a trust as a beneficiary of a retirement account.
EX-SPOUSE AS A BENEFICIARY
Few people rarely intend to leave IRA and retirement assets to an ex-spouse, but this happens all the time. People fail to update their beneficiary designation form after a divorce. Often, they are under the mistaken belief the divorce decree will automatically negate their prior beneficiary designations. Divorce decrees, court orders and wills
generally have no affect on a beneficiary designation.
"PER STIRPES" OR "PER CAPITA"
IRA and retirement assets are not always distributed as intended. Most IRAs will allow the owner to designate multiple beneficiaries. For instance, it is common for an IRA owner to designate his or her children as equal beneficiaries. If one beneficiary predeceases the owner or "disclaims" the inheritance, the remaining primary beneficiaries will generally receive the balance of the IRA and not the children of that deceased beneficiary. For instance, assume Dad has an IRA he wants to leave to his two children Sue and Tom. Sue and Tom also have children of their own. If Tom were to die before Dad, Sue would inherit Tom's share and nothing would go to Tom's children. This is called a "Per Capita" distribution. If Dad wanted to make sure Tom's share would benefit Tom's family, Dad should make a "Per Stirpes" designation. This means Tom's half will be shared equally by Tom's children. By conducting a review of your IRAs and retirement plans, you can avoid costly mistakes and assure the right beneficiaries inherit these hard-earned assets. (BPT)

Personalization of funerals can lead to more meaningful occasion
Be in a Better Place.
Cemetery | Crematory | Arboretum green-wood.com 718-210-3081
s baby boomers age and find themselves having to plan funerals for loved ones and themselves, they are making funeral choices based on values that are different than previous generations. Baby boomers see funerals as a valuable part of the grieving process and are seeking ways to make them meaningful. Today, funeral service consumers are planning funeral services that are as unique as the person who died. The idea of personalization has resulted in an explosion of unique services that reflect the hobbies, passions and interests of someone who has died. Through personalization, funeral services can be more meaningful. Funeral directors can offer ideas on how families can personalize their loved one’s funeral and are open to family suggestions and creativity. The National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) encourages all funeral service consumers to discuss their ideas with the funeral director to ensure an individualized ceremony fitting of the person who died. Regardless of the type of service you select, it should be a reflection of your loved one’s life that makes an emotional connection with all those in attendance. Contemporary thought as it relates to funerals incorporates not only a person’s religious tradition, if any, but also that which allows you to remember your loved one’s hobbies, interests or a certain quality that made him or her like no other person. If you have attended a funeral recently,
you may have seen a collage of photographs, a memorial video, personal items of the deceased on display, special mementos, eulogies from close friends or family, special life tribute ceremonies, balloon releases or any other number of unique tributes. All of this is done to help make the funeral more personal, to illustrate that which was unique about the person’s life, and to help those who have lost someone special begin to heal. If the funeral service you are planning will be following a prescribed religious ritual, your priest, rabbi or minister can advise as to when any personalized tributes can be incorporated into the events leading up to or during the funeral service, if appropriate. To help you begin the process of planning a unique tribute, think of your answers to the following questions: *What could your loved one do better than anyone else? *When you think of your loved one, what do you think of? *What were your loved one’s hobbies or special interests? *What were some of your fondest memories of your loved one? *What was your loved one passionate about? The answers to these and similar questions will help you pinpoint those qualities and activities that are most identifiable with your loved one. Your funeral director can help guide you in this process and share ideas and make recommendations to help you plan a special and fitting tribute.

New etiquette for paying your respects
century ago, most funerals took place in the home. Families lived close together and were part of a tight-knit community, making it possible for friends and relatives to attend funeral ceremonies and make personal visits to console the bereaved. Word-of-mouth was sufficient to advise neighbors and friends that someone had died. Etiquette for those in mourning was strict. Custom dictated wearing black for immediate family members, even children, for lengthy periods following the death. Social activities were severely restricted and condolence or thank-you notes were written on black-bordered, white stationery. Over the years, funeral etiquette has evolved to keep pace with changing lifestyles. Today’s funeral etiquette recognizes the need to express grief and sympathy but in a more individualistic and practical way. For instance, black is still most appropriate for funerals, but gray, navy
The Story Behind St. Joseph Chapel and Columbarium
blue and other subdued colors are also acceptable. Those in mourning go back to work or resume social activities just days after a funeral. Today, families often write a short message on a thank-you card provided by the funeral director. Communication features provided by the Internet have made even more dramatic changes in the ways we memorialize loved ones and participate in funeral ceremonies. A funeral home in North Syracuse, New York was the first to broadcast funerals live on the Internet to accommodate shut-ins or distant relatives who couldn't attend the service in person. Families give written permission to have any portion of the funeral service transmitted. Proper etiquette dictates that we treat grieving friends and family with kindness, dignity and consideration. Social and technological changes just give us another way to memorialize loved ones and offer our condolences. From the New York State Funeral Directors Association
St. Joseph Chapel & Columbarium is the first of its kind in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn. The columbarium project went into effect after Pope Benedict XVI designated Regina Pacis as a Basilica about six years ago, in October 2012. The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, celebrated a Solemn Mass - on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2012 - inaugurating Regina Pacis as a Minor Basilica. When Regina Pacis was originally built in 1950, it had a completely functioning lower church, the same size as the upper church, and necessary because of the large numbers of parishioners in the area at that time. Over the years, as people moved away, the lower church became unnecessary. The space was emptied and used for many functions, including sports. Monsignor Ronald Marino, current Pastor of Regina Pacis Church, envisioned utilizing the space in the lower Basilica, to give a sacred burial place to Catholics who choose cremation. Brochures from the parish explain that Regina Pacis is a Papal Basilica which cannot be merged with another church or closed down. Basilica status provides families with the security of knowing that their loved ones’ remains will be secure here for the future. Theresa Grillo-Landy, manager of the St. Joseph Chapel and Columbarium, recalls being easily able to sell columbarium niches with only a map and architectural rendering at hand. People were eager to purchase niches before all were sold. As word spread about the columbarium’s availability, many former parishioners who had moved away wanted to come home for their final resting place. People who grew up, went to school, got married, and received their sacraments at Regina Pacis, all wanted to be part of this amazing and beautiful Chapel, and cannot imagine being inurned anywhere else. During the year of Mercy in 2015, the Basilica of Regina Pacis was one of the Churches that represented the Holy Door. Through that year Regina Pacis hosted many pilgrimages from other parishes throughout the tri-state area and further. This was a great way to introduce the Columbarium to many more people. The response was amazing, and niches were sold to so many who are not parishioners here.
The Roman Catholic Church’s Teaching on Cremation
Features of the St. Joseph Chapel and Columbarium
The Roman Catholic Church forbade cremation up until 1963. Catholic belief in the body as the temple of the Holy Spirit, and faith in the Resurrection of the body, places a strong preference for entombment - burying the body intact. In addition, the Catholic Church took the verse from Genesis (3:19) – “Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return” as a literal instruction prohibiting cremation and mandating that the body be given a proper burial. This prohibition was also a response to an Early Pagan practice of cremation as a denial of Christ’s Resurrection. However, recognizing the increasing and sometimes burdensome costs of funerals and burials, the Catholic Church in 1963 began allowing the more - affordable cremations, on the condition that a person’s choice of cremation was not based a reflection of doubt or disbelief about Catholic teachings about death, resurrection, and the rebirth to eternal life. Moreover, the Church instructs that reverence be given to the body of the deceased. While cremains are now allowed to be present during the funeral Mass, they must then be interred properly. The Catholic Church still prohibits the scattering of ashes or the practice of keeping them in a family member’s home or even a bank vault. The cremated remains should rest in an urn, to be placed in a (preferably Catholic) cemetery or placed in a niche in a columbarium.
The Chapel opened and was Blessed and dedicated on November 1, 2015 by the Bishop of Brooklyn, Rev. Nicholas DiMarzio. Theresa Landy has been the manager since June 2015. Once, even the most hesitant persons enter this beautiful Chapel, their perspective on cremation is changed forever! The sound of the beautiful music and the running waterfall fountain give the chapel a sense of serenity and peace. The columbarium offers four sub-chapels of niches, each adorned by a stained glass Blessed Mother as she appeared to different groups over the centuries: Our Lady of China, Our Lady of Pompeii, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and Our Lady of Grace. Some people select their niche based on which image of the Blessed Mother they resonate with. Others choose their niches based on the proximity of etched glass saints. The chapels have benches for praying and meditation. Mass is celebrated daily in the Chapel, and Regina Pacis parishioners pray for the deceased. On Fridays the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is offered for adoration. St. Joseph Chapel and Columbarium offers Memorial walls and cenotaphs for those who have family members buried elsewhere, in a section named “We Unite in Prayer for Those Resting Elsewhere”.

On Sept. 6, 1945, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “San Diego, Cal., Sept. 7 (U.P.) – Vice Adm. John S. McCain, who died less than 24 hours after returning to this country from surrender ceremonies in the Pacific, was worn out from the strain of the final battle against Japan, a Navy physician said today. Adm. McCain, 61-year-old commander of famed Task Force 38, died suddenly of a heart attack last night at his home in Coronado. He was a veteran of 41 years in the Navy. The admiral was exhausted from his activities in the last four months in the final effort to batter Japan to her knees, the navy doctor said. The slight, wiry admiral, one of the Navy’s strongest advocates of air power, was suffering from a slight cold but generally considered in good health when he arrived here Wednesday from Pearl Harbor.” On Sept. 7, 1949, the Eagle reported, “The Ebbets dynasty in Brooklyn baseball was legally ended today when a notice of settlement of the Charles H. Ebbets estate was presented to Surrogate Francis D. McGarey by the attorneys for the Brooklyn Trust Company as an executor. The Brooklyn Baseball Club, which was once the sole property of Charles H. Ebbets, Charles Ebbets is now owned by a group composed of John Smith, penicillin tycoon; Branch Rickey, president of the Brooklyn Baseball Club, and Walter O’Malley, who together control 75 percent of the stock, and Mrs. James Mulvey, who owns the remainder … It is to Charles H. Ebbets that Brooklyn owes the growth of baseball in the borough. His vision as a candy butcher at the old Washington Park in 1883 was later responsible for the present home of the Dodgers, which now bears his name.”

Fort Hamilton High School
ebrooklyn media file photo
On Sept. 8, 1941, the Eagle reported, “One of the features of the first day of school in Brooklyn today was the opening for ‘business’ of the new $2,700,000 Fort Hamilton High School at Shore Road and 83rd St. The school is not large, but it has accommodations for 2,500 students and boasts a splendid view of the Narrows. The school is three stories high and has a tower in the center. Architects, knowing that the school could be seen from the ships which ply in and out of the harbor, lavished much skill upon it. Dr. Augustus Ludwig is principal of the school. He was formerly at Far Rockaway High School.”

“Our Alternative Methods Are Environmentally Safe” On Sept. 8, 1953, the Eagle reported, “Washington, Sept. 8 (U.P.) – Fred M. Vinson, 63, Chief Justice of the United States since 1946, died unexpectedly today. He was stricken with a heart attack in his suite at the Sheraton Park Hotel at 2:30 a.m. and died at 3:15 a.m., shortly after a physician reached his bedside. Justice Vinson had not been ill. Mrs. Vinson and one of their two sons, Fred M. Jr., said Vinson retired last night in good spirits and apparently good health. There was immediate speculation that [President Dwight D.] Eisenhower will name Republican Gov. Earl Warren of California to fill the vacancy. Warren announced last week that he will not seek re-election when his present term as governor expires in January 1955 … It seemed probable that Mr. Eisenhower’s appointee will become Chief Justice. Mr. Eisenhower, could, however, elevate one of the present members of the high bench. The 1953-54 term of the Supreme Court starts Oct. 5.” On Sept. 9, 1893, the Eagle reported, “There was a birth in the White House at exactly 2 o’clock this afternoon. Baby Ruth has a little sister. Mrs. Cleveland and the new arrival are doing quite well.” Esther Cleveland, the second child of President Grover Cleveland, is the only child of a president to be born in the White House. She died in 1980.

Roger Maris autographs a baseball for President John F. Kennedy Roger Maris was born on Sept. 10, 1934. The slugging outfielder made his major league debut with the Cleveland Indians in 1957. He was traded in 1958 to the Kansas City Athletics, who traded him to the New York Yankees after the 1959 season. He won the American League MVP award in 1960 and 1961, finishing ahead of teammate Mickey Mantle both times. In 1961, he and Mantle waged an assault on Yankee legend Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record of 60, which was set in 1927. Injuries slowed Mantle down as the season wore on and he finished with 54. But nothing could stop Maris, who hit his 61st home run during the last game of the regular season. With Maris, the Yankees won five consecutive pennants (1960-64) and two championships (196162). The team retired his number in 1984. A heavy smoker, Maris died of lung cancer on Dec. 14, 1985. He was 51. His single-season home run record was broken in 1998 by Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals. Maris’ widow and children were at the game.

Sean Casey Animal Rescue has shared these photos of pets up with adoption with us. Skipper is a six-month-old Pit Bull mix. Skipper came here all the way from North Carolina. He is a bit nervous of life in the city but is slowly coming around. Skipper would do best with an experienced and patient dog owner. Even though Skip-
per is a bit nervous, he is such a sweetheart! Kirby is a five-year-old Domestic Short hair. Kirby is just a little ball of love. He is super sweet and outgoing and gets along with everyone including young children.

Report: Matt Damon Moves into Former Jehovah’s Witnesses’ B’klyn Heights Building By Raanan Geberer
Brooklyn Heights Press
Matt Damon, Luciana Barroso and their four children have reportedly moved into the penthouse at The Standish, an exclusive Brooklyn Heights building that has made its mark in theater and the comics. A Columbia Heights resident who witnessed “many truckloads of stuff being moved in” to the building asked a “nosey neighbor” who told him that the famed actor had moved in, according to Brownstoner. The Standish at 171 Columbia Heights was built in 1903. It was originally a hotel known as the Standish Arms and served as the fictional residence of Clark Kent in “Superman” as well as the place where Willy Loman had an affair in Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman.” The hotel was purchased by the Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1981, then sold to an investment group in 2007. The sale is not yet in the public records, but the three-story penthouse was marketed with an asking price of $16.645 million, Brownstoner reported.

Construction on Quay Tower near Pier 6 of Brooklyn Bridge Park, between the park and the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway at the edge of Brooklyn Heights, is now in the facade installation phase, and completion is expected next year. The 315-foot-tall building will include 126 units, ranging in size from two to five bedrooms. Prices will start around $1.9 million, with $5.5 million expected for
the five-bedroom units, according to YIMBY. The curtain-wall facade, designed by ODA Architects, is decorated with brushed copper-hued metal that resembles the iron girders on the nearby pier. Residences will feature oak flooring, ceilings more than 9 feet tall, washers, dryers and private elevators for some residences, YIMBY reported. Amenities include a fitness center, dog spa, conference rooms, kids’ rooms and bicycle parking.
Come Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge at Sunrise
Strolling the Landmarked Span at Dawn Is a #bucketlistexperience By Lore Croghan
Brooklyn Heights Press
Tourists do it. Why not give it a try? Travel websites tell everybody that walking across the Brooklyn Bridge at sunrise is an awesome experience. Guess what? They’re right. Strolling the iconic span at dawn belongs on Brooklynites’ bucket lists. People come from all over the world to do this. Don’t let them have all the fun. Check out these Brooklyn Heights Press photos from a recent sunrise stroll across the famous bridge. In the moments before dawn, the silvery light that bathes the scenery is otherworldly. It adds an ethereal glow to the World Trade Center and neighboring Lower Manhattan skyscrapers. Around 6:20 a.m., which is when the sun rises in Brooklyn this time of year, the palest possible shade of peach creeps into the sky behind the Manhattan Bridge. Less than 15 minutes later, the orange orb of the sun pops above the horizon and a fiery gold reflection appears on the East River. As the sun climbs into the sky, it lights up the Brooklyn Bridge’s granite, Gothic-arched towers and intricate webs of steel cables. It brightens the white limestone of the landmarked David N. Dinkins Manhattan Municipal Building at 1 Centre St., which was designed by the famous architecture firm McKim, Mead and White.
No Crowds at This Hour
You’ll pretty much have the walkway to yourself — though you might encounter a photo shoot or two. The world-famous Brooklyn Bridge draws big crowds — with an average 13,196 pedestrian crossings on weekdays and 32,453 on weekends and an average 3,157 weekday cyclist crossings, a city Transportation Department study says. But the throngs don’t show up this early in the day. There’s a sense of tranquility and peace on the walkway despite the sounds of car traffic on the bridge. Continued on page 8
This is the perfect time of year for a sunrise stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge.

Come Walk Across the Brooklyn Bridge at Sunrise
Continued from page 7 At the Manhattan terminus of the 1.1 milelong span, there’s a garden where late-summer flowers bloom. When you turn around and head back towards Brooklyn, the sky changes hue and becomes a fine blue backdrop for the towers of Lower Manhattan. At this hour, soft breezes blow from the East River and keep you cool, even on days that become blisteringly hot.
The Roeblings’ masterpiece
A word of advice to those who are not nor-
mally early risers: If you’re taking the subway to get to the bridge, budget more time than you think you need. In the hours right before dawn, the subways don’t run as frequently as you might expect. Perhaps you already know the history of the Brooklyn Bridge, which has been a city landmark since 1967. But the basics bear repeating. When it opened in 1883, it was the first bridge to connect Brooklyn and Manhattan. Until then, ferries were the only link between them. Bridge designer John Roebling died during

its construction. He got tetanus because of a work-related injury. His son, Washington Roebling, was the Brooklyn Bridge’s chief engineer. He became debilitated by caisson disease. So Washington Roebling’s wife, Emily Warren Roebling, took over the management of the project.
He watched its progress through a telescope from the window of their home at 110 Columbia Heights in Brooklyn Heights. When construction was completed, she rode in the very first carriage across the Brooklyn Bridge, carrying a rooster in her lap as a symbol of victory.
