77TH YEAR, NO. 4,015



The Brooklyn Heights Association slammed Mayor Bill de Blasio for “blindsiding” the community by supporting a radical BrooklynQueens Expressway (BQE) reconstruction plan that would temporarily replace the Heights Promenade with a floating, six-lane highway. The highway would bring 153,000 vehicles a day, pictured on the BQE here, to the back doors of some of the most Heights Press file photo valuable real estate in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Navy Yard Chairman Henry B. Gutman was among the stars being honored at the Fourth Annual Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative (BJHI) Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame event that took place Oct. 15. Gutman, along with his family, is a longtime Brooklyn Heights resident. The event was hosted by the Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS), a charter member of BJHI. BJHI has as its mission the chronicling of the lives of Jewish Brooklynites, including oral and video histories. BJHI works closely with BHS, and the two organizations have partnered since the formation of BJHI 10 years ago. “We’re thrilled that this project has really taken off,” BJHI founding chair Howard Teich said. “After tonight, we will have had 42 inductees into the Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame.” Teich pointed out that there is an important reason why this event is presented free of charge. “We want each and every one of the inductees to know that they are being selected because of their accomplishments and their lives, and because we respect them, and because they deserve every bit of admiration that this Hall of Fame involves,” Teich said. “Too many times, people are selected because they can help in terms of raising money. That’s not what [BJHI] is about. We want to thank the City Council, which has been wonderfully supportive.” Teich urged the gathering to visit and to contribute stories about growing up Jewish. “All of you have stories. You know people who have stories.

Gutman (right) and Levin share a laugh at the event. This is a part of the history of the Jewish community of Brooklyn. Every 150 words that you put are meaningful to posterity. They are part of our legacy of the Jewish community in the borough of Brooklyn,” he emphasized. Inductee Gutman said, “I’m a convert — not to Judaism, but to Brooklyn. My first job after I graduated from law school was on Cadman Plaza, and then I worked on Wall Street, the second-easiest commute. My wife Karoly and I fell in love with the community, fell in love with the neighborhood, fell in love with the views, fell in love with the people ... fell in love with the fact that it wasn’t Manhattan. We revel in our diversity in Brooklyn and cherish it.” “Brooklyn got cool despite us,” Gutman joked. “It’s now the center of the universe. I think its future is bright as can be and unlimited.” Councilmember Stephen Levin, who has worked with Gutman on several boards and projects, interviewed the chairman of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the leading industrial park in new York City. “I think that the value and strength of an institution depends on

its people — their adherence to what their mission is, their commitment to getting it done, their vision in being willing to imagine things that don’t yet exist, to stick with them through difficult times of challenges, and I know in a heartbeat we’ve been through much of that together,” Gutman said. “The institutions are important, but they’re only as strong as the people who keep them going and pass them on from generation to generation. “And now with the Navy Yard, our mission is to take that whole historic Navy facility that was abandoned by the Navy in the ’50s, and to turn it into a manufacturing home. Now our latest count has 8,500 people working there.” He added that he aims to add 20,000 jobs there by 2020. Gutman has also been involved in the creation of Brooklyn Bridge Park since his appointment to the original Brooklyn Bridge Park Local Development Corporation board in 1998. He has been a Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy board member and currently serves on the board of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation. Addressing Levin, Gutman said, “The park is spectacular. Those were abandoned piers not that long ago. Now, it’s one of the principal attractions of the City of New York. “I love watching all the diverse people enjoying that park. On Passover last year, I loved watching a group of young Orthodox boys racing around on Citibikes, their tzitzits (fringes) flying behind them. They looked like a biker gang — only Brooklyn style.” Gutman told the gathering, “Every time I go to a college or law school reunion, I meet classmates, including a law school classmate who is the governor of Mississippi; everyone tells me, ‘You live in Brooklyn, give me a call’ … ‘I’ve got a daughter who lives in Brooklyn’ ... ‘I’ve got a son who lives in Brooklyn.’ All these talented people from all over the country want to live here. So I think the future is incredibly bright, and I’m glad I made that choice 43 years ago.”

De Blasio Blasted for ‘Blindsiding’ Brooklyn Heights on New BQE Plan

At a town hall last month, the Brooklyn Heights community took the chance to voice their concerns over a plan for the reconstruction of the BQE from the DOT that would replace the Heights Promenade with a floating, six-lane highway. Now, some of them are angry with Mayor Bill de Blasio for supporting the plan. Heights Press file photo by Paul Frangipane

BHA Says Mayor Is ‘Dismissive’ Toward Historic Value of Heights By Mary Frost

Brooklyn Heights Press

The Brooklyn Heights Association (BHA) sent out a searing statement on Sunday condemning Mayor Bill de Blasio for “blindsiding” the community by supporting a radical BrooklynQueens Expressway (BQE) reconstruction plan even before the public comments are all in. Last Friday, the mayor voiced his support for a proposal to temporarily replace the Heights Promenade with a floating, sixlane highway during reconstruction of the BQE between Atlantic Avenue and Sands Street. The highway, choked with 153,000 vehicles a day, would run alongside the back doors of some of the most valuable real estate in Brooklyn. BHA President Martha Bakos Dietz said in a response to de Blasio that she was “stunned” to read of the mayor’s endorsement of the controversial plan. “At a time when the BHA has been trying to meet again with the DOT [Department of Transportation] to urge serious consideration of alternatives to its two proposals, the mayor makes it clear that the city does not care to hear our community’s opinion,” she said.

While the neighborhood is willing to “share the pain,” the mayor’s approval of the plan is “condescending and dismissive of the very real consequences to Brooklyn Heights of an approach that would place six lanes of highway traffic in close proximity to an historic district and its almost two-centuries-old buildings,” Dietz said. Thousands of trucks from the BQE could be diverted onto the streets of Brooklyn if repairs on the ageing structure aren’t completed before it reaches its expiration date in 2026. DOT Deputy Commissioner of Bridges Robert Collyer assured reporters in September that, though DOT favors the six-year approach, the Environmental Impact Statement “makes the final decision.”

‘Innovative’ Approach Horrifies Residents

The plan at the center of the controversy is one of just two that DOT says it is considering to fix the decrepit 1.5-mile triple cantilever section of the BQE which underlies the Promenade. DOT dubbed it the “Innovative” approach. The other option, known as the “Traditional” approach, would fix the roadway using the typical lane-by-lane method over eight years. DOT has been giving this alternative short

shrift in its communications with the public. BHA wants the city to consider other options. The group said on Sunday it is attempting to meet with DOT to present an option drawn up by several other organizations and individuals that would shift the temporary roadway west of the Promenade. A group called Save the Promenade said on its website that “plunging a six-lane highway through the heart of Brooklyn Heights would gut the neighborhood for a generation, as businesses and young families flee and new residents steer clear due to traffic, noise, and heavy pollution.” DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg in September called the reconstruction job an “epic challenge.” “We know there are going to be huge community concerns and we recognize that the impact of a project like this is very big. It also has huge implications for traffic and the economy of the whole city,” she said.

Rip Off the Band-Aid

De Blasio said on Friday that he favors the Innovative plan because the quicker the job gets done, the better. Continued on page 4

Continued from page 3 “It’s the way to address the bigger project once and for all and as quickly as we can do it,” he told Brian Lehrer said in a WNYC radio interview. De Blasio characterized the faster but more painful alternative as “kind of the pull-the-Band-Aid off approach.” “There’s two options and they’re both painful,” he said. “This BQE is one of the lifelines of the city. It has to be fixed. If we don’t get to work fixing it soon it will be out of service and that would undermine everything. That would undermine mass transit because of the buses, it would undermine everyone’s ability to get around, trucks’ ability to get around, you name it.” The Traditional option “would cause a huge number of vehicles to go through the streets of Brooklyn and clog up residential areas and business areas, and I think that’s extraordinarily problematic. It would also take longer — several years longer to achieve the change in the BQE,” de Blasio said. Locals, however, call the Innovative approach the greatest threat to the neighborhood “since the time of Robert Moses.” At a community meeting earlier this month, they resoundingly denounced the plan, resorting at times to shouting and other expressions of frustration over issues including the environmental implications of tearing down the Promenade, the impact that construction would have on noise and nearby buildings, and questions about why DOT hasn’t considered alternative locations for a temporary roadway, such as over or to the west of Brooklyn Bridge Park. DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg said at the meeting

earlier this month that other options could be discussed, but her agency is backing the initial two proposals. BHA said the city needs to go back to the drawing board. “We truly think there are other options to be considered and the city needs to meet with us as soon as possible to discuss these,” Dietz said. The group is urging the community to contact Daniel Abramson, the mayor’s representative to the Brooklyn Heights community, at The BHA also calls upon the community to support Save the Promenade and sign its petition at

The Brooklyn Eagle, Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator hosted two well-attended health and financial fitness expos within the last two weeks, one at Dyker Beach Golf Club on Thursday, Oct. 4 and another at St. Francis College on Friday, Oct. 12. There were food, fun and freebies for those attending, along with informative booths provided by hospitals, realtors, law firms, local businesses, therapists and karate instructors. In all, there were some 25 exhibitors at each expo offering information packets, product demonstrations and all kinds of free promotional items. There were raffles, prizes galore and a 50/50 raffle. At the Dyker Beach expo, three keynote speakers delivered highly informative talks revolving around medicine and health care. NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island’s Chief Gastroenterologist Dr. John Trillo; Maimonides Medical Center’s Director, Interventional Cardiology in Cardiovascular Care Director Robert Frankel, MD; and United Healthcare and AMP Insurance Brokerage’s Sales Agent Louis Peters each presented a keynote speech. At the St. Francis expo, the keynote speakers were NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island Chief of Cardiology Dr. Nicholas E. Brodyn, SUNY Downstate Medical Center’s Director of Audiology Dr. Sal Saleh and Maimonides Medical Center’s Women’s Heart to Heart Department of Cardiology’s Director Dr. Inna Nelipovich. Accessible Dispatch, a program that connects the community to wheelchair accessible taxis all throughout the five boroughs, handed out literature about its service. “It’s not just for individuals in wheelchairs, it’s for anybody in the community who wants to use it,” Community Outreach Director Steven Williams told this paper. “You don’t have to qualify or go through a medical assessment or exam. Anybody can use it. All you need is a telephone. There are three easy ways you can access the service. You can download our app: accessibledispatchnyc, go to our website or call our dispatch line. It’s just a wonderful way to make New York City more accessible.”

Full House for Senior Health and Financial Fitness Expos in Downtown and Southern Brooklyn Continued from page 1INB Certified physical therapist Marcello Sarrica explained what makes Sarrica Physical Therapy unique. “We try to go above and beyond,” he said. “We do all one-on-one sessions unlike traditional physical therapy facilities that often double and triple-book patients. We value quality over quantity and ultimately the patient benefits from that handson, one-on-one approach.” Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care, located at 1516 Oriental Blvd. in Manhattan Beach is one of the only facilities that has private rooms facing the ocean. “It’s a 400-bedroom facility on 10 acres of land with a lot of greenery and other amenities like onsite free parking,” said Community Outreach Liaison Thomas Ryan. “And we can facilitate all rehabilitation needs.” Chiropractor Dr. Carey Skorski of Bay Ridge Holistic Health explained, “Holistic health care is a way to see what’s interfering with your health holistically so we check patients for nutritional deficiencies, toxicity, nerve interference from emotional and physical stress,” Skorski said. “And we help patients maintain their balance for better health.” Trillo’s keynote speech revolved around gastrointestinal health and prevention. He identified colon cancer as the third leading cause of cancer death in this country for both men and women equally. “We have excellent screening tests to help prevent colon cancer,” Trillo said. “There are a number of them, with the first being a colonoscopy. Everyone should have a colonoscopy starting at age 50 and every 10 years until the age of 75.” He also discussed other tests that are used to identify colon cancer for those refusing to have a colonoscopy, adding, “Some cancer screening is better than no screening at all.” He stressed the importance of being aware of and preventing the disease before it happens. “If we’re able to prevent it then we’ve done our job by giving you a longer life and better quality life,” Trillo said. Frankel said that Maimonides has a long history of heart care excellence. He reminded everyone that the first human heart transplant performed in the United States was in 1967 by Dr. Adrian Kantrowitz at Maimonides Medical Center. He also said that the pacemaker was partially developed and designed at Maimonides. “I can tell you that we have been No. 1 in interventional cardiology procedures for many, many, many years,”

Frankel said. “In fact, for the last eight years in a row we’ve been No. 1 in the entire state of New York.” Peters shifted the focus from medicine to healthcare when he spoke about new Medicare procedures. “We are Medicare specialists and we have about 1,500 Bay Ridge clients,” Peters said. “We offer every plan at our office at 77th Street and Fifth Avenue. We have 10 plans and can assist you in all of your Medicare needs.” He encouraged guests to learn more about the high deductible F Medicare supplement plan, which he called “the most amazing product out there.” He also recalled that he used to deliver the Home Reporter when he was eight. At the St. Francis expo, Dr. Sal Saleh spoke about the need to maintain healthy audiological health with the motto “hear better, feel better.” He explained that it’s not just people 60 and over who suffer hearing loss, but babies also can suffer from it. He talked about SUNY Downstate’s focus on this issue and discussed all the audiology services it provides. “Thirty-six million people suffer from hearing loss,” Saleh said. “One of the most common problems is young people using headphones and raising the volume too high in order to hear their favorite lyrics.” He also discussed the major improvements made in modern hearing aid technology. “There are now invisible devices that sync up with your iPhone,” Saleh said. “And remember, the longer you wait, the harder it is to remedy hearing loss.” Brodyn offered some fascinating life-saving tips about heart health. “Our heart is similar to a basement boiler,” Brodyn said. “It has two chambers on the top and two chambers on the bottom that pump blood to the body.” He explained that women tend to outlive men and that heart disease in women often occurs later in life. He stressed the need to use common sense and not to ignore the warning signs of heart disease. Maimonides’ Nelipovich discussed women’s risk factors for heart attacks. She offered a visual presentation detailing the various symptoms of heart failure and talked about the various heart failure programs offered at Maimonides. “We have a world-class arterial fibrillation program, an aortic aneurysm dissection program and a vascular surgery program among many others,” Nelipovich said. Other exhibitors included AARP Bay Ridge branch, AARP Bensonhurst/Ovington Chap-

ter, Advanced Hearing Center, Aetna, the Allure Group, AXA Advisors, Bay Ridge Holistic Health, Bay Ridge Vision Care, Ben Bay Realty Co. of Bay Ridge LLC, the Bensonhurst Center, Brooklyn 4U Realty, CERT, Connors and Sullivan, Eyewear Girls, Humana, Knights of Pythias, Pro Health Urgent Care, Norwegian Christian Home and Health Center, American Cancer Society, Caption Call, Dime Bank of Brooklyn Heights, doTerra, MTA Reduced Fare, NYU Langone and WMA Karate. Russell Craig Targove was the master of ceremonies at both expos and Howard Latting performed Tai Chi demos to promote WMA Karate’s senior self-defense and wellness classes. There were also blood pressure screenings and other activities throughout each event. Guests were exceedingly pleased with the scope of the expo. “I come to this expo every year and this is one of the best I’ve ever been to,” said attendee June Johnson. “It’s very informative and I’ll certainly be back.”

Bishop Kearney Goes Gold BROOKLYN EDUCATION BY JULIETTE PICCINI TUGANDER The student council at Bishop Kearney High School recently held a “Go for the Gold” event to raise awareness of childhood cancer. There was a delicious bake sale, and students donated $2 each to wear a gold or yellow shirt. The school fence was decorated with gold ribbons and balloons. Bishop Kearney will donate all funds raised to the American Childhood Cancer Organization in memory of Kaitlyn Bernhardt ’20, daughter of Jennifer Fallon Bernhardt ’88, and Sally “Sweet Sally Sunshine” Kabel, daughter of Nicole Kabel ’96. *** Brian Gomez, vice president and district manager of Investors Bank, and Anthony Gieri, branch manager, recently presented Bishop Kearney with the second installment of a three-year grant from the Investors Foundation for the school’s STEAM Wing. The school has used the donation to refurbish its Think Tank.

District 20 Teacher Awarded City Council Citation every parent’s worst nightmare,” Kovalik said. “My daughter was so scared and she would get separation anxiety and it looked like all hope was lost. Every day got harder and she would make herself sick by crying.” Then, she said, her whole world changed when she met Severino at the District 20 pre-k center at 1355 84th St. Severino, Kovalik said, changed her daughter’s outlook on coming to school. “She even found it fun,” Kovalik told this paper. “She started looking forward to going every day just

Dyker Heights teacher

Nicole Severino was awarded a citation from City Councilmember Justin Brannan earlier this month for her dedication to her students. Local parent Tracie Kovalik

credits Severino for easing her daughter’s transition from pre-k into kindergarten. “I met Ms. Severino after a really rough start. My daughter’s first year of pre-school was

by having a wonderful, caring and understanding teacher who was willing to go to endless lengths to show my daughter how much fun it is to go to school.” Now, she said, her daughter is in kindergarten and “walks right in.” “It’s important the we recognize teachers, especially when they go the extra mile for their students,” said Brannan of the award. “We are lucky to have Ms. Severino in Dyker Heights and she deserves this extra recognition for helping a young

student overcome her fears and really start to love coming to school each day.” “I can’t thank Ms. Severino enough for giving my daughter a brighter future and for being who is is,” added Kovalik. “It’s not just a job to her. She loves and cares about each student like they were her own.” She’d hoped her son, who just recently started pre-k in District 20 himself, would also get Severino as his teacher. “Thank heaven he did,” Kovalik told this paper. “I felt like I hit the lotto.”

Fort Hamilton Takes Another Fall to the Hall BY JIM DOLAN ER ASMUS HALL 45 FORT HAMILTON 8

The 3-2 Fort Hamilton Tigers traveled to Midwood to play the second place 4-1 Dutchmen of Erasmus Hall at Sid Luckman Field in a rarely scheduled Friday afternoon game last week. Erasmus was the team in 2011 that broke Fort Hamilton’s 38-game regular season winning streak. From that point Erasmus emerged as one of the most dominant teams in the PSAL City Conference. With a 32-14 mid season win over the Tigers in 2011, the Dutchmen ended the era of Fort Hamilton’s 2005 to 2011 dominance to begin a decade of their own success especially in the post-season. After 2011, the Dutchmen would beat the Tigers in eight more meetings (2012 to 2018) including this game as well. Continuing to play its dominant role, Erasmus scored early on a four-yard rush by Andrew Howell to give the Dutchmen an 8-0 first quarter lead. After Markeys Brown dragged two Tiger defenders to the one-yard line on a 31-yard pass play, quarterback Jordan Armstead ran the ball in from the one to make the score 16-0. Regaining the ball, Fort Ham ilton qu a r terback Marquis Willoughby drove his team to the 45-yard line

The touchdown appeared to put the Tigers back in the game; however, Fort Hamilton’s one-touchdown margin quickly evaporated as the Dutchmen proceeded to score three more times in the second quarter. After the Tigers’ first and only touchdown, the Dutchmen’s offense exploded, scoring on Howell’s second touchdown on a 37-yard rush, followed by a Yaseen Murden 35-yard pass play and then on a Justin Bellido three-yard

run to give Erasmus a 38-8 halftime lead. In the third quarter, the Tigers held the Dutchmen scoreless while Fort Hamilton (3-3) was denied the end zone as well. Erasmus (5-1) then wrapped its fifth win of the season in the fourth quarter as Armstead found Murden for his second touchdown on a 55-yard pass play to end the game for the final score of 45-8. Looking to improve their blocking on offense and tackling on defense, the Tigers will host Midwood, another top division team next Saturday.

Others envision bold new flags for contemporary local and global communities. When: Fridays through October 24th, 3 – 6 p.m. Where: Park Slope/Old Stone House (336 3rd Street) DEANNA LEE Site-specific installations that consist of masses of lines that evoke various influences: organic structures like plants, hair, muscles, and fungi; natural systems such as waves and wind currents; geological strata; and topographical maps. When: Daily through October 25th Where: DUMBO/Main Window (One Main Street) MAX DE ESTEBAN The Binary Code series are a colorful concoction of collages that excite our imagination and send the viewer on a trajectory of multiple narratives.

When: Thursdays-Sundays through October 27th, 1 – 5 p.m. Where: Sunset Park/Tabla Rasa Gallery (224 48th Street) BLANKET STATEMENTS A group exhibition of three contemporary Native American women abstract artists — Gina Adams, Maria

Hupfield, and Marie Watt — organized in collaboration with Accola Griefen Fine Art. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through October 27th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Minus Space (16A Main Street) JON HENRY: STRANGER FRUIT In response to the endemic murder of African-American men at the hands of authorities, Jon Henry’s photographs turn to the mothers of the communities, to the women who must endure the senseless loss and carry on. His ongoing project, Stranger Fruit, examines the motherson relationship as a manifestation of the lasting effects of the fear of losing one’s loved ones. Henry photographs mothers alone and holding their son(s) in the classic pietà pose—that of the grieving Virgin Mary cradling the dead Christ—to explore the love, tenderness, and resilience of AfricanAmerican families in the face of violence and heartbreak. Although the photographs do not document real incidents they evoke the ever-present possibility of loss to police violence. When: Daily through October 28th, Mon – Fri 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sat – Sun -10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BRIC House Hallway (647 Fulton Street) 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. When: Daily Through October, 12 – 9 p.m. Where: Greenpoint/Exhibit Salon (182 Driggs Avenue) THE BRIDGE THE BRIDGE The Bridge! The Bridge!, Robert Latchman’s first solo exhibition at LAND Gallery, as a title encapsulates the commanding effect the Brooklyn Bridge has on this artist’s work. Latchman’s fascination with the Brooklyn Bridge began a few years ago. Since then, the bridge has served as his main subject, completely

capturing the artist’s focus. The Brooklyn Bridge is not his only subject, but it is a dominating one; the work evokes permanence, construction, and calls attention to the history of place. When: Mondays-Fridays through October 30th, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Land Gallery (67 Front Street) Traitor Muscle A New Commission and the first major solo exhibition in New York by Joseph Buckley. The artist’s practice centers on the relationship between grief and postcolonialism. Against a backdrop of contemporary fascism, Buckley employs a range of visual and cultural references—from sci-fi to modernism to Doc Martens to slave ships to Amazon’s factory floor—asking us to deeply consider society’s divisions and fractures, using the medium of sculpture to investigate the psychic technologies that enable them. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Art In General (145 Plymouth Street) ROBERT CUMMINGS New drawings from polymath artist Robert Cumming. Cumming’s nudes imply a compelling yet elusive narrative informed by his merging interests in painting, sculpture, and photography. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through November 3rd, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden, Inc. (91 Water Street) ODE TO A VOID Ron Baron’s solo exhibition, Ode to A Void. In this show, Baron’s slip-cast ceramic shoes are presented in a large spiraling swirl in the center of the space. Baron’s work is infused with a quiet, somber magic – one that references memory or loss and the temporal nature of moments. When: Thursdays-Sundays through November 4th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street) A CAT IN GOD’S GARDEN Luisa Caldwell’s exhibition encompasses personal interests that have spanned her childhood and adult life: cats, gardens, and art books. Her project is inspired by flowers and plants that she grows and nurtures in her Brooklyn garden, as well as the stray cats that come and go. On the gallery walls are hundreds of Caldwell’s botanical drawings illustrating fantastic flora. Caldwell has also created an installation of found porcelain and stoneware vases that have her own feline and botanical imagery

etched into the surface. Rather than exhibiting these vessels on traditional bases, she displays them on stacks of art books that refer to the influences that spill into the content of her work. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through November 4th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street) BRIDGING TWO WORLDS: THE LAND OF THE LIVING AND THE LAND OF THE DEAD The exhibition brings together artworks and artifacts that speak to the universal question: “what happens to us after we die?” When: Saturdays & Sundays through December 2nd, 12 – 5 p.m. Where: Green-Wood/ Green-Wood Cemetery Fort Hamilton Gatehouse (500 25th Street) TOWARDS A NEW ARCHEOLOGY This group show brings together artists who reevaluate the history of material culture — presenting installation and sculptural works that speak to a mystical, transcendent, and visionary future. Towards a New Archaeology features work by Amy Brener, Leeza Meksin, Sheila Pepe (NWA’02), Ioanna Pantazopoulou, Ester Partegàs (NWA’09), Jean Shin (NWA’07), and Rachel Eulena Williams. When: Daily through January 2019, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building (30 Lafayette Street) THE BUSINESS OF BROOKLYN: AN EXHIBITION ON THE OCCASION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BROOKLYN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE An exhibition exploring the past 100 years of business in the borough.

The exhibition showcases images and objects from companies large and small that thrived in Brooklyn, including Domino Sugar, Squibb Pharmaceuticals, Schaefer Beer, Drake Bakeries, Abraham & Straus, Gage & Tollner, and many others. It includes numerous artifacts from the Brooklyn Chamber’s history, including a gavel that the Chamber used to convene meetings in the 1920s, the telephone the Chamber used in its first offices at 75 Livingston Street, and a program for the Chamber’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, which honored entertainer Danny Kaye. It also includes treasures from BHS’s collections, including Eberhard pencil sets, Virginia

Dare bottles and glasses, coasters and trays from Brooklyn’s illustrious beer brewing history. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through January 2019, 12 – 5 p.m. Where: Brooklyn Heights/ Brooklyn Historical Society (128 Pierrepont Street) SYRIA, THEN AND NOW: STORIES FROM REFUGEES A CENTURY APART Features highlights from the museum’s collection of thirteenth century Syrian ceramics alongside work by the contemporary Arab artists Ginane Makki Bacho, Issam Kourbaj, and Mohamed Hafez.

Eye on BAY


real estate Brooklyn is a big place with so many choices! Let our real estate section make you feel at home.

Here’s the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, which is Bay Ridge’s best-known structure. Houses in the neighborhood sell for a pretty penny. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

BAY RIDGE: HOW IT GOT ITS NAME When Henry Hudson stood on the deck of the “Half Moon” (Halve Moen in Dutch) as he sailed into the harbor more than 400 years ago, he saw Staten Island to his left,

and on his right, on top of a ridge on the Brooklyn shore, land that appeared to be in the shape of an owl’s head. Today, the spacious Owl’s Head Park occupies that land above Shore Road in the neighborhood called Bay Ridge in Brooklyn’s southwest. The bay, of course, is what they called the harbor in those early days. The ridge is from the elevation left by the remnants of the last ice age, millions of years ago. The water across to Staten Island now has been spanned by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, named for the Italian Giovanni da Verrazzano who sailed the route in 1524 on his voyage of discovery. The bridge was the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was completed in 1964. Bay Ridge was originally part of the town of New Utrecht and was known as Yellow Hoek, named by its Dutch settlers for the yellowish clay soil they found there. The Dutch West India Company had bought the land from the local Nyack Indians. But after an outbreak of yellow fever in the mid-19th century, the name was changed to Bay Ridge for its proximity to New York Bay and its glacial ridge, now Ridge Boulevard. Henry C. Murphy, a mayor of the City of Brooklyn, a New York State senator and founder and editor of theBrooklyn Eagle, built his estate along that ridge. The area originally attracted the wealthier residents, but after the 4th Ave. subway line (the R-train) was extended in 1915, it lured many Manhattan workers and it became more of a middle-class neighborhood.

South of 86th St. is the section called Fort Hamilton, named for the military base that occupies the southernmost portion of Bay Ridge. The fort was originally called the Narrows, when it was completed in 1831, but later was renamed in honor of Alexander Hamilton. Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Abner Doubleday were at some time stationed at Fort Hamilton. —Norm Goldstein

Longest-Serving NYPD Chaplain, First Hasidic Woman Judge Among 2018 Hall of Fame Honorees By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor INBrooklyn

The first Hasidic woman to be elected to public office in U.S. history and the longestserving chaplain in NYPD history were among the stars being honored at the Fourth Annual BJHI Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame event that took place Monday night, October 15. The Brooklyn Historical Society, a charter member of the Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative, hosted the celebration. Rabbi Alvin Kass comes across as a man of joy and peace. Introducing him was Brooklyn Borough Historian Ron Schweiger, who said he’s known Kass for 36 years—about the entire time he served as rabbi of the East Midwood Jewish Center. “Now you must be doing something right for them to keep a rabbi for 36 years,” Schweiger remarked. Schweiger pointed out that longevity seems to be Kass’s gift, as he has also served as an NYPD chaplain since 1966—some 52 years — making him the longest-serving chaplain in NYPD history. Kass has served under seven mayors and 16 police commissioners. “As a rabbi, I think I’m the luckiest person in the world, because I’m in a position to really enjoy people at their best. I can intensify their joy; I try to help them through sorrow. But the greatest pleasure of a rabbi—and the word rabbi means teacher—is to see your offspring achieve great things. And I’m on the bill here tonight with Adam Richman. He’s my student, my mitzvah boy. “The career that I’ve had has had high points; it’s had very sad points,” Kass said, pointing out that he had been at Madison Square Garden just that morning at a NYPD ceremony where attendees learned about and prayed for a firefighter who had fallen three stories from a building in the line of duty. On an earlier occasion, on the same day that his son Danny was bar mitzvahed at the East Midwood Jewish Center, Kass got a call about a police officer who had been shot and killed— and spent the next several days helping the officer’s family through the grief. “That chance to intensify the life of people in good times, and

INBrooklyn photos by Francesca N. Tate also to help them in bad times, I think is the greatest privilege in the world,” he said. “It’s been my opportunity to be able to do that my entire adult life.” Richman, a son of the East Midwood Jewish Center, was visibly moved by Kass’s tribute. Richman has enjoyed an acting career and has also become a self-educated food expert. He is the author of “America the Edible: A Hungry History from Sea to Dining Sea.” Judge Rachel Freier was the first Hasidic woman elected to Civil Court, although she was moved to Criminal Court. She told the gathering on Monday that her parents taught her that she could aim for any honorable goals that she wanted, and she thanked them, and her husband and children, for their support. “My mother said, ‘Girl, you can do anything you want to, so long as it isn’t illegal, immoral, or against the Torah,’” Freier said. “Growing up, I was taught to believe that the world is wide with opportunities. I did not feel restrained; I did not feel restricted.” Freier said although there were rules, those provided a

structure for succeeding. She also said, “My father thought I was a lawyer before I became a lawyer!” Having parents who believed in and encouraged her—“I believe that tells my story,” she said. Freier, who began her career in law interning for then-U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and other elected officials, excelled at law school and passed the bar exam in 2006. Ten years later, she won the three-way race for Civil Court judge in a landslide, gaining 74.4 percent of the vote. Expressing a great faith in God for her purpose, Freier said knew how to handle naysayers and detractors. “How you do you know it’s never going to happen?” she would say. “If God wants it to happen, it will happen.” When asked during the Hall of Fame interview how she finds balance between her work and home life, she replied that keeping her faith in God was key.

Other Brooklyn Jewish Hall of Fame honorees included David Greenfield, CEO of the Metropolitan Food Council and advocate on eliminating poverty. He is a former city councilmember serving parts of Flatbush, Midwood and Kensington; Brooklyn Navy Yard Chairperson Henry Gutman; Brooklyn musician, songwriter, producer and writer Cecelia Margules; Gowanus resident and award-winning cinematographer, feature film editor and director Ferne Pearlstein; and Tony-Award nominee, playwright, actor, director and singer Eleanor Reissa. Renowned food critic and writer Mimi Sheraton, now 93, was also an honoree but could not attend due to ill health.

Brooklyn Eagle cover from Oct. 16, 1924

ON OCT. 15, 1924, the Eagle reported, “Springing suddenly out of the October haze hanging like a fog over the lower bay at 7:40 o’clock today, and swimming the skies with all the grace of a huge silver fish, the ZR-3 came sailing over New York straight from the works of her German builders. Her entry through the gateway of America could not have been more auspicious. The day was perfect, the air still, and she came in impressive majesty, turning and maneuvering over Manhattan and Brooklyn for more than an hour. As she swam over the lower bay and the river, dipped toward the skyscrapers, passed over the Equitable Building and behind the great tower of the Woolworth Building, not so much taller than she is long, she was under perfect control. At times she almost seemed to stand still under the morning sun, and she gave New York as great an aerial show as this city ever had before.”  ON OCT. 15, 1939, the Eagle reported, “London, Oct. 14 (U.P.) — Streams of ‘refugees’ kept trickling back to the slums of London and other big cities of Great Britain today in a ‘revolt’ against country life. They are part, although only a small part, of the mass migration of more than 1,300,000 women, children and invalids to the countryside at the outbreak of war. They were glad to be back, no matter how squalid their homes. Many insisted on returning despite repeated warnings of the peril of air raids. Their numbers included children who had never known anything but margarine. They objected to the taste of fresh country butter. They found bulls far more terrifying than city traffic or bombs. They were accustomed to fish, chips and beer for ‘supper’ and found fresh eggs and milk strange to their palate.”  ON OCT. 15, 1951, a listing in the Eagle’s Video Highlights column read, “9:00 WCBS (2) ‘I Love Lucy,’ featuring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz (premiere).”

 ON OCT. 16, 1842, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Colt’s Submarine Battery. — A third experiment with this engine of destruction will be made in our harbor tomorrow afternoon, at 4 o’clock precisely, under the patronage and direction of the American Institute, now holding its annual fair at Niblo’s Garden. The vessel to be blown up is larger than either of those already experimented upon, and will fully test the power of the battery.”  ON OCT. 16, 1896, the Eagle published the following advertisement: “E.C.M. Fitzgerald’s Brooklyn Music Hall. This Week — First appearance in Brooklyn of Edison’s Vitascope and the best show ever presented in this city. Continuous concerts Sunday from 3 to 12.”  ON THIS DAY IN 1912, the Eagle reported, “Chicago, Oct. 16 — Col. [Theodore] Roosevelt, his family with him, and satisfied as to his condition, today rested at greater ease than at any time since the hand of John Schrank was lifted against his life in Milwaukee on Monday night. Physicians examining his wound today and making a complete clinical examination, found his pulse, respiration and temperature so nearly normal that concern over his condition vanished, and the extremely conservative conduct gave way to a desire to establish public assurance that no complications were looked for to stand in the way of rapid recovery.”

ON OCT. 16, 1946, the Eagle reported, “Nuernberg, Oct. 16 — Reichsmarshal Hermann Goering succeeding in cheating the gallows of allied justice by committing suicide in his prison cell a short time before the 10 other condemned remnants of the Nazi hierarchy were hanged earlier today. Despite the fact that an American security guard was supposed to be watching his every movement, the Crown Prince of Nazidom managed to place in his mouth, chew and swallow a vial containing cyanide of potassium. The vial of poison was hidden in a copper cartridge shell. Goering swallowed the poison while Col. S. Burton Andrus, American security commandant, was walking across the prison yard to death block to read him and the 10 other condemned Nazi leaders the International Military Tribunal’s sentence of death … Goering had not previously been told that he was going to die this morning, nor had any of the other condemned men. How he guessed that this was to be his day of doom and how he managed to conceal the poison on his person is a mystery that has confounded the security forces.” 

ON THIS DAY IN 1945, the Eagle reported, “A spearhead of the mighty U.S. fleet which blasted the fighting forces of Japan out of the Pacific streamed into New York Harbor today for the most triumphal  welcome since Admiral Dewey returned from Manila after the Spanish-American War. Paced by the mighty 20,000-ton carrier Enterprise, 10 ships arrived for the celebration of Navy Day, Oct. 27. They were the vanguard of the 50 fighting ships which President [Harry] Truman will review in the Hudson River after commissioning the super-carrier Midway at the Brooklyn Navy Yard … Their coming yesterday was heralded yesterday afternoon by a spectacular flight of 101 fighter planes and torpedo bombers from the decks of the carriers. Taking off far out at sea, the planes came roaring over lower Manhattan and Brooklyn to land at Floyd Bennett Field.”

ON OCT. 19, 1952, the Eagle reported, “President [Harry] Truman whistle-stopped his way into Brooklyn last night, telling a cheering capacity crowd at the Eastern Parkway Roller Skating Rink that Dwight D. Eisenhower and other Republicans are waging a “street gutter” campaign that is helping the Communists. Truman’s speech, which wound up his second trip in support of Adlai E. Stevenson’s presidential campaign, came midway in a 17-mile motorcade tour of Brooklyn. Hundreds of thousands of borough residents lined sidewalks from Flatbush to Williamsburg to greet the president.

For Laughing Out Loud • Did you hear about the sensitive burglar. He takes things personally. • Why did Mozart kill his chicken? Because it kept saying Bach, bach, bach. • What do lawyers wear to court? Lawsuits. • “It’s so cold!” “Go stand in the corner where it’s 90 degrees.” • An invisible man marries an invisible woman. The kids were nothing to look at either. • I’m like a really down to earth guy because you know… gravity.

• I have a lot of jokes about unemployed people, but none of them work.


• And finally, there was the person who sent twenty different puns to his friends, with the hope that at least ten of the puns would make them laugh. No pun in ten did!

Poetry Isn’t Dead in DUMBO By Stephanie Kotsikonas, Books Editor Brooklyn Heights Press

Heights Press photos by Stephanie Kotsikonas

Poetry has taken on new life at DUMBO’s Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop, the only all-poetry bookstore in New York City. Aiden Farrell, a volunteer who has been working at the store since February, said that the shop is a place where voices that normally wouldn’t be heard have a home. “There’s such a wide range of things,” Farrell told the Brooklyn Heights Press. “You’ll find less canon here than you’ll find contemporary experimental stuff.” The few well-known names that Berl’s does stock, like Jorge Luis Borges and John Milton, seem stale when put alongside bright orange, DIY-looking booklets that combine verse and printed images. “There’s a real focus on experimentation with book design,” Farrell said, showing that books can be visual and tactile rather than only intellectual and cerebral. Take Eileen G’Sell’s “Portrait of My Ex with Giant Burrito,” the front cover of which looks like a stitched-up piece of fiberglass insulation. Cotton linters, banana peels, seaweed, seashells, shredded money and other materials are combined to create a unique, clothlike cover. Some inside pages are also made of clear plastic, engaging the readers’ visual and tactile senses the whole read through. Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop was founded by published poets Jared White and Farrah Field in 2010. According to the store’s website, Berl’s began as a Brooklyn Flea vendor. After three years at various locations around DUMBO, Berl’s finally settled into its current location at 141 Front St., where it also hosts events and author readings. “I love this space. I’m a poet, and it’s great to be around all of these wonderful books,” Farrell said. “[Poetry] is another way to be in the world.”

Brooklyn BP Adams Wants NYPD to Test Bola Lasso Device on Emotionally Disturbed Persons

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams was immobilized by an 8-foot tether shot by a new, non-lethal device meant to control emotionally disturbed individuals without harming them. By Mary Frost

Brooklyn Heights Press

A former law officer shot an 8-foot tether around the legs of Borough President Eric Adams last Thursday, immobilizing him in the grand courtroom at Brooklyn Borough Hall. It was a planned takedown. Earplugs were passed around to reporters before Mike Rothans, senior VP at Wrap Technologies and a former assistant sheriff in Las Vegas, aimed a handheld device at Adams’ legs from a distance of roughly 15-20 feet and pulled the trigger. Propelled by an explosive 9mm cartridge, the capture happened so fast that the human eye was unable to see the barbed tether flying through the air at 640 feet per second. Adams gave a slight jerk as a Kevlar cord wrapped around his legs, but smiled to show the procedure was painless. Adams, a former cop, is pushing the city to allow the NYPD to test the use of the tool, called a BolaWrap, on emotionally disturbed persons, harmlessly preventing them from running or moving their arms. The device is the solution to “the endless pursuit of finding a non-lethal manner of subduing a person with emotional disturbance issues, particularly when violent,” Adams said. “We cannot underestimate how important this is. By NYPD numbers, the department responded to nearly 150,000 calls for service involving a person in mental crisis,” he said. “Every four minutes in the city, there’s a call to the police for an EDP — emotionally disturbed person.” Adams brought up the case of Dwayne Jeune, the 32-year-old man who was fatally shot by police officers last year in East Flatbush after he rushed toward them in his apartment

and waved a serrated knife. A Taser did not stop him. In cases like this when family members call for help, the police attempt to do all they can do to restrain a person, “only to lead to a serious bodily injury in many cases, and in some cases a loss of life,” Adams said. “I can only recall the number of times I had to respond to an emotionally disturbed person who did not take their medication or was going through some form of crisis,” he said. Adams said there were approximately 15,000 instances of the use of force in EDP cases, “from wrestling someone to the ground, to using a Taser, even using [a] firearm. So these numbers are really high, and it’s important we find a more humane way of dealing with a violent, emotionally disturbed person.” In another example, Rothans played a video showing police shooting a Taser at an 86-yearold man with dementia, who ended up seriously injured from the encounter. (While Tasers can be harmful, they can also fail to work in a large percentage of encounters.) The BolaWrap is meant to reduce injury to innocent but erratic individuals like this man, he said. The bola must be aimed accurately and the area must have clothing for the tether's hooks to hold onto. It can be aimed at just a person’s legs, leaving his hands free to catch himself should he trip and fall. The device costs $800, and each bola costs $30 and takes from 3 to 8 seconds to reload. Company officials said the bola was not strong enough to kill someone if it wrapped around their neck.

Easy Learning Curve

After being cut out of his entangling cord, Adams took his turn firing the BolaWrap at

Borough President Eric Adams examines the tethers he shot around the legs and arms of Judah Meiteles at Borough Hall last Thursday. Heights Press photos by Mary Frost Judah Meiteles, a volunteer from the company. Aided by a green laser pinpoint light, his two shots successfully and instantly wrapped the man’s legs and also arms — and this was the first time he had ever fired the device, he told reporters. “It’s an amazing opportunity and an amazing evolution in the concept of policing. Suspects are restrained with a minimum to no pain.” He said that the nonlethal technology “is designed to be utilized early in a police encounter, not after the encounter has gotten out of hand. The most important aspect of policing is control.” Adams also touted the fact that former law enforcement officers are representing the device. “These are individuals who were actually on the street patrolling, responding to these jobs, and it brings an important dynamic to this device,” he said. The company demonstrated the tool to the city last Wednesday, David Norris, president of Wrap Technologies, said, but the city has not committed to pilot it. It is also being looked at by police departments across the country, including jurisdictions in Alabama, California and Florida. In response to a question from reporters, Adams said the BolaWrap was meant to be used in addition to crisis intervention training for all police officers. “Addressing the challenge of EDPs is a matter of improved officer training, of increased therapeutic mental health care and of enhanced technological approaches that are safe, accurate, and humane,” he said.

Adams explains the procedure.

Families Flock to 2018 Sunday Social Eddie the Eagle executes his next move during a challenging game of street chess. The game was sponsored by the Brooklyn Heights Press and Brooklyn Eagle!

Outdoor Chess at Montague Street Event Sponsored by Heights Press, Brooklyn Eagle Thousands of families flocked to the 2018 Sunday Social event presented by the Montague Street Business Improvement District on Sunday, Oct. 14. The event, which took place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., featured tons

of fun activities for children and families, including musical and dance performances and a special reading of “Aunt Lilly’s Laundromat” by author Melanie Hope Greenberg. There were performers on stilts and hand painting booths welcoming large crowds all day.

A highlight was the giant street chess game set up and sponsored by the Brooklyn Heights Press and Brooklyn Eagle. Eddie the Eagle himself took part in several games with families, proving that having bird brains isn’t a bad thing!
