The Most Romantic Street In Brooklyn By Mary Frost Brooklyn Heights Press

Just one block long, Love Lane may be the sweetest lane in Brooklyn Heights. The little byway connects Henry Street to Hicks Street, and dates back to the earliest days of the city. There are several stories about how the street, which once crossed several blocks of the Heights to the East River, got its name.

ABOVE: This small section of Martin’s Map of the City of Brooklyn, 1834, shows a much longer Love Lane than exists today in Brooklyn Heights. Love Lane today is only one block long, except for a section quietly preserved as greenspace. Courtesy Robert Furman Collection According to Ephemeral New York, the former carriageway has a long history as a place for romance. In pre-Colonial times, it is said to have been an Indian trail leading to the East River. When the Dutch arrived, it became a “popular path for romantic walks.” Ephemeral New York quotes the fanciful description of the lane published in an 1894 New York Times article: “The oldest residents can remember a time when there was a cool and shady path leading down ‘Lover’s Lane,’ where plump, rosy-cheeked Dutch maidens, with their sweethearts, meandered on summer evenings out through the turnstile and down the grassy bank to the water’s edge.” According to Robert Furman’s “Brooklyn Heights: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of America's First Suburb,” around 1800 Sarah De Bevoise, a young resident of the block, was so alluring that young men from the area cut love poems to her in the fence around the family’s house, turning the passageway into a lane of love. The Daily News has a less delicate take on the walkway: “Love Lane takes its name because it was a popular necking area where men would park their carriages in the 1880s before dropping their girlfriends off at the all-girls college

[Brooklyn Collegiate Institute for Young Ladies] around the corner.” And even though Love Lane, over time, became truncated (like love often is, alas), a one-block section from its bucolic past has been preserved. In a story for the Brooklyn Eagle in 2016, reporter Lore Croghan wrote: “There’s a patch of sylvan greenery that runs alongside a handsome carriage house at 151 Willow St. The green oasis is situated on land that long, long ago was an extension of a sweet little street called Love Lane.” Croghan said the greenspace was protected from development “by the thoughtful actions of two of the heroes of New York City landmarking, Otis and Nancy Pearsall. “In 1977, the couple, whose house is just down the block, purchased the carriage house and the vacant land,” Croghan reports. “And they drew up ‘preservation easements’ that forbid the construction of new buildings or changes to the landscaping without the approval of the New York Landmarks Conservancy.” So in some small, secret way, in Brooklyn Heights, the cool and shady path of love is forever.

A solo exhibition of Min Liu’s animations and installations. Curated by Thomas D.

with a profuse installation of wall-mounted sculptures of hearts and flowers. When: Thursdays-Sundays through March 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)

ARCHITECTURE OF MEMORY: CHERYL MOLNAR SOLO The artist’s process begins with documentation: Molnar photographs locations newly traveled and wellknown and loved. These photographs are digitally stitched together, combining landscapes with structures from various “memories.” This is the way we experience memories: we confuse the place and time, the structures bleed together, places patched together in our minds the way Molnar

collages photographs, like concretized memories. These are the improbable landscapes of our memory, given physical shape. On view for “The Architecture of Memory” will be recent collaged paintings on panel as well as small-scale editioned work that reveal much of the early stages of her process, much like “sketches” but done through photographs and digital manipulation. When: By appointment only through February 22nd Where: Greenpoint/Arete Venue and Gallery (67 West Street)

BONNIE COLLURA: PRINCE Bonnie Collura’s sculptural installation Prince critiques our culture’s pattern of repeating iconic characters, gestures, and polarizing traits to create heroes. In her ongoing project, Collura interprets the Prince figure as an amalgamation of four archetypal male characters from history, religion, and popular culture: Jesus, St. Sebastian, C-3PO (the droid from Star Wars), and Abraham Lincoln. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through February 24th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)

ONLY THE BEST

Image courtesy of the artist and Urban Glass

Fresh Masters: The UrbanGlass MFA Exhibition will be on exhibit through March 9th at Urban Glass. As soon as you walk in, what seems like a particularly melodious cacophony of photographs, gives way to a configuration that takes the spectator through them organically. Each artist’s unparalleled point of view comes through. Part of this season’s exploration of thematic approaches to collecting, Only The Best highlights new or unexhibited pieces by gallery artists, and takes its name from the Baron Von Fancy piece that both announces and critiques the exhibition. There are certain qualities particular to photography, and each of these artists is addressing one if not more. Fred Cray uses the photographic materials to confound and to repeat elements. This piece is literally collaged, with a cut-

out moon placed adjacent to the original print. Both hover over a silhouetted dog. David Brandon Geeting continues his still lifes that look like collages, but aren’t. S.B. Walker’s contribution is a landscape that persists in appearing like something else. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through February 28th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden Inc (91 Water Street)

IN WHICH WE ALL KISS SOMETHING SECRETLY A collaborative exhibition, this show combines photo light-boxes, created by photographer Maria Mercedes Martinez, with poetry by Denver Butson. When: Saturdays through March 2nd, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: Carroll Gardens/Court Tree Collective (371 Court

ON PLANE VIEW Showcasing the photographs of Max de Esteban and Doug Fogelson. Doug Fogelson’s ‘Forms and Records’, explores the physicality and science of the photograph, through a formal exploration of objects, and their representation as photograms.

WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS

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

profound transformation. When We Were Strangers is the first part of a lifelong project deconstructing love through the prism of our relationship. This first chapter is a love poem of sorts, one that charts what happens when two people attempt to become something more and less than that, when we are more unknown stranger to each other than anything else. But love is an ouroboros that eats the past that came before it. Who was I before you? We are interested in the frayed edges, the messy intersections, the elements of ourselves lost and new facets gained in the process, and the limits to all of that. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 22nd, 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/United Photo Industries (16 Main Street)

NICHOLAS GALANIN: THE VALUE OF SHARPNESS

Nicholas Galanin offers perspective rooted in connection to land and an engagement with contemporary culture.

For “The Value of Sharpness: When It Falls,”

Galanin has created sixty porcelain hatchets, which are suspended from the gallery ceiling. When: Thursdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 2 – 6 p.m., Where: Park Slope/Open Source Gallery (306 17th Street)

ENRICO RILEY: NEW WORLD The paintings are part of an unfolding and evolving cycle that investigates themes of historical and contemporary violence, martyrdom, grief, and the middle passage within a spatial domain. Enrico Riley challenges viewers to decipher and contextualize his work’s fractured narratives. For many Americans, exposure to the plethora of recent media examples of reflexive violence perpetrated on African-Americans has blurred the boundaries between the historical record with which our country is so familiar and the problems still facing contemporary culture today. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Prospect Park/Jenkins Johnson Projects (207 Ocean Avenue)

based photojournalist Cinthya Santos Briones has photographed undocumented migrants who face orders of deportation. By taking up asylum in houses of worship, often for indefinite periods of time, these individuals and their families have found both a refuge and a provisional prison.

The series opens on Valentine’s Day with Gina Prince-Bythewood’s celebrated debut feature, Love & Basketball (2000), in which Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps’ passion for the game is rivaled only by their passion for each other. The series’ panoramic view of romantic love includes Pedro Almodóvar’s noir and melodrama-drenched Russian nesting doll of storytelling, gender identity, and desire.

Eye on Gerritsen Beach

Welcome to the Gerritsen Beach shoreline.

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

See Six Spectacular Shoreline Spots in Gerritsen Beach By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It looks like a New England fishing village. That’s what people sometimes say when they describe Gerritsen Beach to New York newcomers. Actually, it’s much cooler than that. It’s a unique piece of Brooklyn. The neighborhood is situated on a peninsula, which gives it the feel of a snug, selfcontained destination. There are docks and boats in marinas, and residents’ back yards, on waterways called Shell Bank Creek and Plumb Beach Channel. Also, there’s Shell Bank Canal, which bisects the peninsula. Gerritsen Beach’s devel-

GERRITSEN BEACH Gerritsen Beach was originally part of the town of Gravesend, named for Wolfert Gerritsen van Kouwenhoven, who in 1629 was offered the land from the Dutch West India Company. In 1665, his descendent Hugh Gerritsen built a house and tidewater mill on Gerritsen Creek, now part of Marine Park, and 100 years later, his descendants are said to have used the mill to grind flour for George Washington’s troops in the American Revolution. With Gerritsen Beach still primarily rural, William C. Whitney, secretary of the Navy under President Grover Cleveland, bought 67 acres of land in the neighborhood in 1899 and renovated a 150-year-old mansion for a racing lodge. A land speculator then bought 1,100 lots near the Shell Bank Creek in 1920 and in 1923, doubled his investment by selling them to Realty Associates. The firm transformed what were some squatters’ bungalows and by the late 1920s, they were so popular that some of their owners winterized them to live there year-round. Larger two-story homes with back yards were eventually built and by the 1930s, Gerritsen Beach had more than 1,500 homes. —Norm Goldstein

oper, Realty Associates, created this waterway in the 1920s while constructing the 1,800 or so homes that comprise the neighborhood. Nearly all the houses are winterized bungalows with immense charm. The streets on the south side of the canal are especially narrow — and therefore especially picturesque.

THE CREEK SEEN FROM GARLAND COURT Start in the part of the neighborhood that’s north of that bisecting waterway, the Shell Bank Canal.

Take the bus to the stop on the corner of Gerritsen and Bijou avenues and walk west.

— Continued on page 14INB —

RECOVERY AFTER SUPERSTORM SANDY The neighborhhood was hugely harmed by Superstorm Sandy in October 2012. But it is beautiful again thanks to residents’ grit and perseverance. Sandy socked Gerritsen Beach with a 10foot storm surge. It flooded the basements and first floors of the cherished houses. The aftermath was nightmarish. The volunteer-operated Gerritsen Beach Fire Department, Gerritsen Beach Cares and the Gerritsen Beach Long Term Recovery Project did heroic work in the hurricanestricken neighborhood. Homeowners have worked mightily to renovate and rebuild. Some of the residents have constructed tall foundations for their houses to comply with insurance regulations and protect their homes in the event of future floods. The city-administered, federally funded Build It Back program and the state’s Project UPLIFT program have been helpful to them.

THE B31 BUS IS YOUR NEW BEST FRIEND If you’re heading there from north or central Brooklyn, you need a certain amount of fortitude to travel to Gerritsen Beach on public transit. It’s waaay down at the end of the B31 bus route, which you hop onto at the B and Q trains’ Kings Highway Station. When you get an eyeful of Gerritsen Beach’s waterfront vistas, you’ll be glad you made the trek. There are scores of different routes you can take for an eye-pleasing walk through the neighborhood. The one we devised seeks the shoreline at every turn. Because of the way the streets are laid out, there’s a lot of zigzagging involved to get to places where the water is visible. It’s helpful to keep a map of Gerritsen Beach open on your phone. Here are six publicly accessible waterfront spots for you to see. Zip up your heaviest winter coat and let’s go.

Eye on Gerritsen Beach

See Six Spectacular Shoreline Spots In Gerritsen Beach

— Continued from page 13INB — You’ll find Garland Court, which has a wide-open view of Shell Bank Creek just past the intersection of Allen Avenue. Though it’s winter, boats are docked here, as they are all around the peninsula. On the horizon, there are beautiful shoreline houses that are part of the neighborhood.

THE END OF CHANNEL AVENUE

Next, with a little bobbing and weaving, you’ll find Channel Avenue, which runs parallel to Allen Avenue. Where Channel Avenue dead-ends, you’ll get a fresh glimpse of the Shell Bank Creek shoreline. There were lots of boats and a bit of ice on the water the day we did our strolling. This view has a slightly urban flavor. If you swivel your head in the right direction, you wind up with an eyeful of a self-storage facility that’s on the opposite shore on Sheepshead Bay’s Knapp Street.

THE END OF HAZEL COURT

There’s a third great view of the creek on a dead-end block of Hazel Court, which you find by walking down Devon Avenue. This vista includes Tamaqua Marina, whose name you can see painted on the roof of a building on the property.

THINKING ABOUT ABOUT BUYING A HOME?

THE END OF FLORENCE AVENUE

Fourth, you should follow Florence Avenue to its end for another look at Shell Bank Creek. You’re still on the north side of the canal at this point. This is the last glimpse we’re going to give you of the creek, though there are other dead-ends you can duck into for additional looks.

THE CANAL SEEN FROM FANE COURT

Fifth, let’s find Shell Bank Canal. Its north shoreline is there, behind the backs of the houses on Gotham Avenue. The homes stand in a nearly unbroken line. But a street called Fane Court intersects Gotham Avenue and runs to the water’s edge. This is where you can get a look at the canal. If you’re strolling on a sunny day, you’ll see such lovely light on the water.

PLUMB BEACH CHANNEL SEEN FROM LOIS AVENUE

The sixth great spot for shoreline gazing is Lois Avenue. Too bad they didn’t name it Lois Lane. Yes, that’s a newspaper reporters’ joke. Lois Avenue is down at the tail end of Gerritsen Beach. It’s peaceful on a wintry afternoon. The shoreline you can see from this avenue is that of Plumb Beach Channel. There’s a shingle-covered house perched on the edge of it that looks so lovable.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 12, 1909

ON FEB. 12, 1861, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The president elect has spoken, and those who expected to find in his words an indication of his capacity to meet the crisis he helped to create will we fear be doomed to disappointment. His career towards Washington seems to resemble the royal progress of a provincial tour by the Emperor of France or the Queen of England. At Indianapolis, he delivered a brief speech in which he gave his opinion, that marching an army with hostile intent into South Carolina would be an invasion, and it would be coercion if the inhabitants were forced to submit; but, he asks, if the United States should merely hold and retake its own forts, collect duties, or withhold the mails, where they were habitually violated, would any or all of these things be invasion or coercion? His own opinion is that it would not be. But he must see that the recapture of those forts would produce civil war just as surely as marching an army into Southern territory and would unite the whole South in resistance.”  ON FEB. 12, 1909, the Eagle published a special section to honor Abraham Lincoln on what would have been his 100th birthday. It included a full-page recollection from Brooklynite Adelaide W. Smith, who served as a field and hospital nurse during the Civil War. She said, “When Abraham Lincoln, with super human courage, made that moral stroke of a pen that gave freedom to millions of slaves, then was born at last a free country, not only in name, but in the glorious fact that had blotted out from the country’s escutcheon the shame of human slavery that had so long branded our vaunted freedom as a disgrace.”  ON FEB. 12, 1915, the Eagle reported, “Washington, Feb. 12 — The cornerstone of the $2,000,000 Lincoln Memorial structure was laid here today without ceremonies. Former Sen. [Joseph] Blackburn of Kentucky, the resident member of the Lincoln Memorial Commission, was in charge. In the cornerstone were laid a copper box containing a history of Lincoln, signed by his living son, Robert T. Lincoln, and other historical data. Lincoln’s 106th birthday anniversary was observed in the House with an address by Representative [Isaac] Sherwood of Ohio.”  ON FEB. 12, 1932, the Eagle reported, “John J. O’Brien, 93, who cast his first vote for Abraham Lincoln and who was one of the great throng which paid tribute to the Emancipator when the body of Lincoln lay in state in Manhattan on the way to its final resting place in Springfield, Ill., died yesterday at his home [on Russell Street] … Born in Manhattan, Mr. O’Brien early learned the bookbinding trade and became an expert in this work. He was 33 years connected with the Register’s office at the Hall of Records as a bookbinder, retiring from active work after he was 90. He had resided in Brooklyn for 65 years.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 12, 1947

ON FEB. 14, 1861, the Eagle reported, “Yesterday it was officially announced that Abraham Lincoln has been elected President of the United States for four years from the 4th of March next. This was pretty generally expected throughout the country; our own mind was pretty well satisfied of the fact by reading an ‘extra’ in the grey twilight of a cool and crispy morning about the 7th of November last. There were rumors in the party papers of all sorts of plots to prevent the counting of the electoral vote, but the event proved they were altogether groundless. The ceremony was performed in the usual way, and no improper manifestations were indulged in.”  ON FEB. 14, 1929, the Eagle reported, “Chicago, Feb. 14 (AP) — Seven members of the North Side gang of George (‘Bugs’) Moran were lined up against a wall and summarily executed and one other was probably fatally wounded today by a band of men who invaded the North Side headquarters of the gang posing as police officers. After forcing the men to raise their hands, the gangsters shot them down in cold blood. The heaped bodies of the victims were found in the rear room of the S.M.C. Cartage Company garage, 2122 Clark St., by police, who had been summoned by a woman living nearby. She was apparently the only person to hear the sawed-off shotguns and machine guns of the slayers, who pulled up before the Moran gang headquarters in two large automobiles … Today’s killing brought the total of gang slayings here in the past few years to more than 135.”  ON FEB. 14, 1947, the Eagle reported, “Paris, Feb. 14 (U.P.) — An estimated 5,000,000 civil service employees walked off their jobs late today, paralyzing transportation, closing government offices and virtually bringing French life to a standstill in a demonstration for higher wages to meet the inflationary cost of living. The strike was scheduled as a demonstration, and to lost only this afternoon. It deprived the city of telephone service. All lines to the provinces were dead, as was the metropolitan automatic network. The sudden walkout occurred about 4 p.m., when the workers took to the streets for massive parades along the Paris boulevards, chanting their demands for pay and carrying big banners. Paris was in confusion as hundreds of thousands milled in the streets or demonstrated. Citizens were unable to reach their homes because all public transport had halted. The French radio, a governmental enterprise, went off the air precisely at 4 p.m. France already was without newspapers due to a strike.”  ON FEB. 14, 1954, the Eagle reported, “Puccini’s ‘Tosca’ has been recorded frequently, but never with the vibrancy and urgent excitement engendered by Victor de Sabata in the new two-disc set from Angel. We have always had the feeling that de Sabata was more at home in the opera house than on the concert stage and this, his first operatic recording, certainly bears out that contention. Brilliantly recorded at La Scala in Milan, it enlists the services of a superb Tosca, Maria Callas; an excellent Cavaradossi, Giuseppe di Stefano; and a good, if not always sufficiently evil Scarpia, Tito Gobbi. Though there is considerable competition from other albums, this is likely to be the definitive ‘Tosca’ for some years.”

Longtime Heights Resident Barbara Becker Named to Grace Church’s Vinton Society The Rev. Francis Vinton Was Landmark Parish’s First Rector By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor, Heights Press

Barbara has also been a participant in many improvements to our interior spaces and, perhaps most significantly, helped plan and supervise the restoration of the Sanctuary. We are grateful for her tireless work as Co-Chair of the Search Committee. A member of the Vestry for six years, Barbara is now returning to serve as Clerk. The community of Grace is stronger and more beautiful for Barbara’s life with us. I am proud to bestow on Barbara Becker the 2019 Vinton Society award,” Robinson said.

Longtime Brooklyn Heights resident Barbara Becker received a huge surprise recently when the rector of Grace Church named her as the 2019 Francis Vinton Society Award honoree. This marked the first time in three years that the Vinton Award has been conferred. Grace Church’s rector, the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, made the announcement at the Feb. 3 liturgy on the day after the popular Grace Church WinterFair. The Vinton Society, named for Grace Church’s first rector, the Rev. Francis Vinton, was established in 2010 to recognize parishioners for their long and outstanding service to Grace Church. “A parishioner of Grace for over 35 years, Ms. Becker has been a member of the choir for 28 of those years. A long-time volunteer with the East Brooklyn Congregations program, Barbara has mentored high school students in essential life skills. She has been a central organizer and dedicated worker at many, Barbara Becker many WinterFairs, Spring Galas and Silent Auctions. Michael Rycheck/courtesy of Barbara Becker

History: Francis Vinton The Visionary Dr. Robinson’s predecessor, the Rev. Stephen D. Muncie, who established the Francis Vinton Society Award in 2010, told the Heights Press at the time, “After my arrival at Grace, I knew I wanted to establish a society to honor parishioners who have exercised commendable and distinguished leadership in our congregation. The dedication of faithful churchmen and churchwomen inspire all of us in our ministries.

Francis Vinton was our first rector. His visionary leadership contributed to the organization of Grace Church in 1847 and the construction of this beautiful church several years later.” The Brooklyn Eagle of Monday, May 10, 1897 published a chronicle, based on historical notes that warden and vestryman Henry E. Pierrepont read at a service marking the church’s 50th anniversary the previous day. At this golden jubilee service, Pierrepont reported, “Grace Church was organized on May 3, 1847, in Emmanuel Church, on Sidney Place, which was the parent organization, the congregation having been gathered by Dr. Goddard. The Rev. Francis Vinton took charge of the congregation, and after his coming the need of a new building was felt by the parish, on account of the largely increased congregations. The first act of the vestry was to call Dr. Vinton to the rectorate and a site was then procured and preparations made to erect a building at the corner of Hicks street and Grace court. Richard Upjohn, architect, drew the plans. Trinity Church corporation of New York aided the new parish by granting it an annuity of $1,000 for fifteen years for the purchase of a site.” The article later reads that the institution of Dr. Vinton as rector took place in September of 1849, and the first confirmation service was held at the same time. Interestingly, Dr. Vinton left Grace Church in 1855 to become a vicar at Trinity Church.

Past Honorees The inaugural Vinton Society honorees in 2010 were Lynn Vardakis and Bronson Binger. Past honorees (a man and woman for each year) have been: Lois Osborne and Vernon Vig in 2011; Anita Yglesias (posthumously) and Charles Cole in 2012; Jim Yglesias and Dorothy Pilch in 2013; Thomas Chittenden and Ann Gaffney in 2014; Thomas Pace and Jill Gilbert in 2015; and Craig Whitney and Sally Larson in 2016. The award was on hiatus in 2017-18 during a transition in clergy leadership.

EXPANDED CARE FOR WOMEN IN BROOKLYN

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Coming to Brooklyn Heights By Raanan Geberer Brooklyn Heights Press

Columbia Care, the company that opened New York City’s first medical marijuana dispensary in 2016, is planning to open a branch in Brooklyn Heights in the former home of Court Street Office Supplies. The dispensary recently signed a lease for a 7,000-square-foot location at 44 Court St., according to The Real Deal. In addition to dispensing services and pharmacist consultations, Columbia Care will provide home delivery. Hector Rodriguez, which represented the company in lease negotiations, told The Real Deal, “As the medical cannabis industry has evolved, more and more communities have welcomed companies like Columbia Care that provide a vital service to patients.” The first medical marijuana distributorship in Brooklyn, Civita, opened last month at 202 Flatbush Ave. near Barclays Center. Another company, Westchester-based Valley Agriceuticals, also plans to open a Brooklyn dispensary in the near future.
