ROUGH EDGES: ELISE SIEGEL A solo show of ceramic sculpture by Elise Siegel. In this exhibition, a large gathering of Siegel’s idiosyncratic and psychologically expressive portrait busts inhabit the gallery. Although each bust is a distinct individual, they are not portraits of specific persons. Rather, they are embodiments of familiar emotional states — fleeting moments of inner conflict, disquiet, ambivalence and unease. As such, they exude an uncanny sense of

vulnerability and project an interiority that creates a psychological tension. When: Thursdays-Sundays through February 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)

Passport to Iron City fully immerses travelers into the world of Alita’s touching cyberpunk story, and is unlike anything else.

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

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

ONLY THE BEST

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

FRESH MASTERS: THE URBANGLASS MFA EXHIBITION

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)

ENRICO RILEY: NEW WORLD

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.

Take a Winter Stroll to the Newtown Creek Nature Walk And Other Scenic Greenpoint Spots By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

A sewage treatment facility has some of Greenpoint’s best waterfront views.

The good thing is that the public can see them, too. The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant is right on the shoreline of the toxic waterway.

It has billion-dollar vistas of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, whistle-shaped Citigroup Center and an eye-catching array of Long Island City towers. We know this because the city Department of Environmental Protection built a pocket park on a sliver of the site more than a decade ago. As long as you resist the urge to wade or fish in the poisonous creek, which is a federal Superfund site, you’ll have a great time at the Newtown Creek Nature Walk, which is what it’s called. The nature walk is a quarter-mile long. But fear not — if you need exercise, it’s a hike from the nearest subway station and ferry dock to 100 Paidge Ave., where it’s located. Environmental artist George Trakas designed it.

Quenelle Rothschild & Partners LLP was the landscape architect.

PICTURESQUE DIGESTER EGGS

Native plants grow on the site. In the summer, they’re green, lush and flowering. Just FYI: In winter the trees are leafless, the grasses are sere and brown. The waterfront views are your reason to be here. In addition to the iconic skyscrapers, you’ll see a barge being loaded with crushed cars on the Queens shoreline. And on the far side of Whale Creek, which is one of the nature walk’s boundaries, you’ll see the sewage treatment plant’s digester eggs. The gigantic metal spheres process organic sludge but look glam.

Nasal Fractures

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

“I

think I broke my nose!” These words may be uttered after a sports injury, fall, car accident or an assault. Though nasal fractures are the most common of all facial fractures, determining the presence of a fracture and the possible need for surgery require the guidance of a surgical specialist and is a common reason a patient will see an otolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat specialist). It is important to be informed about how to get timely evaluation and treatment. Delays can result in complications and deformities that negatively affect nasal shape and breathing. Any severe blow to the nose should raise the suspicion of a break or fracture of the bones. Patients may experience pain, bruising, swelling, a nose bleed and difficulty breathing through the nostrils. Change in the shape of the nose, with twisting or flattening/widening of the bridge of the nose are signs of a fracture. Evaluation should be sought the day of the injury. This will usually be with an emergency physician or a primary care physician. A broken nose may also result in soft tissue injuries, including a hematoma(blood clot) of the nasal septum inside the nasal cavity. This is an emergency that must be drained promptly to prevent permanent damage to the septum. In situations where a hematoma has developed or there is a bad nose bleed

Dr. Sydney C. Butts, board certified, the American Board of Otolaryngology

associated with the injury, an otolaryngologist will often be called to assist in management. Imaging-plain xray or CT scan-is sometimes ordered but not required when the diagnosis is apparent. All patients with severe nasal trauma should be referred for follow up with an otolaryngologist or other facial trauma surgeon 3-5 days after the injury, because significant swelling at the initial evaluation can obscure changes in the shape of the nose (and this is where imaging can be of assistance). With a decrease in swelling, the decision will be made if surgery is needed. Healing in children is faster than in adults so it is especially important that they have prompt follow up. A closed nasal reduction is a procedure done to realign the fractured nasal bones. The nose bones are still mobile during the first 7-10 days and can be manipulated back in place and stabilized with a nasal cast worn for 7 days. This procedure generally takes 15 minutes and is done as an outpatient surgical procedure. If surgery is not done within this time frame, the bones begin to heal. To straighten the nose at this point, the bones have to be rebroken — a procedure called a septorhinoplasty — usually several months after the injury. A treatment delay is more serious in young children (less than 13 years) because the kind of extensive nasal procedures used after bone healing has occurred can disturb facial growth. Nasal fractures are readily treated but patients should ensure they seek medical attention right away and have prompt follow up so that if surgery is needed, there are no delays and the shape of the nose is restored. —— Bio — Dr. Sydney C.

You reach this dandy drawbridge over Newtown Creek via McGuinness Boulevard, which has a sidewalk. In the middle of the bridge, there’s a viewing area where you can take pictures. If you have vertigo, it’s a little bit unnerving to stand there because you can feel the bridge bounce as cars pass over it. On the Greenpoint side of the creek, you will see a dramatic old-fashioned brick industrial building. It’s the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center at 1155-1205 Manhattan Ave. As the center’s website explains, the property is the former Chelsea Fiber Mills, which was a maker of rope for marine uses. Part of the complex dates back to the 1860s. Today, it belongs to a nonprofit and houses small manufacturers and artisans. Behind this property, you can see a new tower, One Blue Slip, which is at mega-development Greenpoint Landing, and the framework of companion tower 41 Blue Slip, which is under construction. On the Long Island City side of the creek, sailboats are tied up along the shoreline in a picturesque row. And you get a somewhat closer view of the skyscrapers that you can see from the Newtown Creek Nature Walk.

Down on terra firma, there are a couple good vantage points for viewing Newtown Creek. First, walk to the end of Manhattan Avenue, beside the Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center, and you’ll find a kayak launch. This puts you at eye level with the sailboats on the Long Island City shoreline. Second, stroll from Manhattan Avenue to Commercial Street, which will take you to Greenpoint Landing. On the water’s edge alongside One Blue Slip, there’s a public esplanade that developers Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group built. James Corner Field Operations designed the walkway, seating areas and landscaped terrain. Of course, the plantings are prettier in the summertime. Nevertheless, it’s exciting to walk by the waterside on terrain that’s public recreation space for the first time. The property was a lumberyard for eight decades before Park Tower Group bought it in 2005.

DMV SERVICE CENTERS Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 5, 1937

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

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 6, 1952

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

ROOFING Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 7, 1934

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

vices for prot to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services. #166960

COUNCIL PASSES BILL TO HELP SENIORS, MANAGE PROPERTY TAX BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@ BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

here might be a sigh of relief from senior low-income homeowners in Brooklyn thanks to the City Council’s passage of a new bill that will help them pay their property taxes and other outstanding debts in an effort to ensure that they keep their homes. Most notably, one of the payment agreement plans would give low-income seniors the option to defer some or all of their property tax payments until the property is sold or otherwise transferred, at which point the city would be paid the taxes it is owed from the

proceeds of the sale. The other two plans would be available to other low-income homeowners to enter into payment agreements for property tax arrears where the installment amounts they have to pay will be based on a percentage of their income, so they can actually afford the payment plans and stay out of default and the lien sale. The three new types of payment agreement plans are available to homeowners who earn less than $58,400 annually. The proposal will be available to owners of one, two or three-family homes and condominiums, as long as that home is their primary residence. The three plans are:

•Senior low-income: Seniors have the option to defer their property tax payments until the property is sold or otherwise transferred. They can choose to pay 0, 25, 50 or 75 percent of property taxes until death or until when the property is sold. •Fixed-length low-income: Low-income homeowners can pay two, four, six or eight percent of their income until their property tax debt is paid off. •Extenuating circumstances low-income plan: Low-income homeowners with extenuating circumstances can pay two, four, six or eight percent of their income for a one year period that can be extended if circumstances continue.

t’s hard enough to find a parking space in Brooklyn as it is, but when the Department of Transportation (DOT) removes parking regulation signs from streets, the result is confusion and head-shaking, according to frustrated Bay Ridge residents. Locals say they’re having trouble deciphering the city’s byzantine parking regulations because of the absence of signs, particularly signs that used to indicate the boundaries of No Parking zones. And the result of all that confusion is parking tickets, lots of them, according to Michael Jaguar, who has lived in Bay Ridge all his life. “People are getting hit with parking tickets left and right,” Jaguar told this newspaper. He offered an example. “There were two No

Parking signs on my block several feet away from each other. It was easy to tell that you couldn’t park in between the two signs. Then, about two summers ago, the city came and removed one of the signs and left the other one there. Now, you can’t tell how far the No Parking section extends,” Jaguar said. Many motorists, who had grown used to checking for two parking regulations signs, often don’t see the one sign that is left. They park their cars in what is technically still a No Parking zone and wind up getting tickets. “This was happening daily and I even witnessed a car being towed from one of those spots,” Jaguar said. “I have warned dozens of people parking in those spots since that day.” A DOT spokesperson said the signs that were taken down aren’t coming back. “It is no longer DOT’s

CHARLES “JOE” HYNES REMEMBERED BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

M

ourners from all across the city came to St. Thomas More Church in Breezy Point, Queens to remember Brooklyn’s longest serving district attorney, Charles “Joe” Hynes. The overflowing memorial mass took place on Sat., Feb. 2 and brought out a who’s who of elected officials, community leaders, and NYPD and FDNY members who had worked with the former district attorney. Hynes died on Tues., Jan. 29 at the age of 83. He had served 24 years as district attorney. His wife of 50 years Patricia Hynes stood with her sons Sean and Patrick. She was given a flag and a fire helmet in her husband’s memory. The Flatbush-born-and-raised Hynes had a remarkable career, beginning as a reformer and ending amid controversy. His career as Brooklyn district attorney began in the wake of his successful prosecution of a notorious racial attack in Howard Beach, Queens, as special state prosecutor for the New York City Criminal Justice System, a position to which he had been appointed by then-Gov. Mario Cuomo in 1985. He also had helped implement a citywide program to monitor convicted domestic violence offenders, in collaboration with former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. This was a particularly important issue for Hynes, whose mother was the victim of domestic violence.

He subsequently opened the Family Justice Center within the DA’s office that provided a range of services for domestic violence victims in a single location, and which became a nationwide model. However, Hynes’s later career was marked by a series of controversies, including allegations that his office had used improper evidence to win murder convictions in nearly two dozen cases. Hynes’s successor Kenneth Thompson opened a conviction review unit, maintained by current DA Eric Gonzalez, that was instrumental in overturning those cases and setting free many innocent people who had languished in jail for years. At Hynes’ request, the funeral was held without his body which he had donated to a medical facility in Florida for scientific research.

Dyker Heights residents receives kidney transplant thanks to Maryland donor BY JAIME DEJESUS DEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

A

pproximately six years after being diagnosed with kidney disease, a beloved Dyker Heights native received the gift of life from a complete stranger from Maryland. Seventy-year-old Fred Howe, who was diagnosed with Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), in 2012, had been searching for a kidney donor — including through this newspaper, which publicized his plight — since going on dialysis, about three and a half years ago. “Dialysis is not one of the best feelings,” he said. “It keeps you alive, but it doesn’t make you better.” For that, Howe needed a kidney. Initially, he was on a three-year-long organ donor waiting list. While that might have been discouraging, he and his family swung into action. “There was one man that said to me, if you’re looking for a donor for a kidney, you have to put the effort in like you were looking for a job that you’ve always wanted your whole life,” Howe recalled. One ray of light was how

many people reached out to help. “When you’re in need of a kidney or on dialysis, people are so concerned about you,” the emotional Howe explained. “One guy who leads a prayer group in his church said he was going to pray for me every Friday. I was absolutely blown away. The thing is people really do care but don’t know what to do, I think because there’s a real lack of awareness sometimes or a fear of not knowing what you can do to help. Sometimes it’s just a matter of getting the word out.” Thanks to organizations like non-profit Renewal, the help of his wife Barbara and a friend he met online, Howe’s family found a way to get the word out to help find a donor. His need was publicized online, and locally, as he and his wife made signs and flyers to distribute around the borough. “I even went to my grandkids’ grammar school, St. Bernadette,” Howe explained. “The principal was very nice. She let the kids go around to all of the classrooms and hand out the flyers and asked the kids to bring them home to their parents. The principal also put it in an email to parents.

meaningful way that was given to me. I didn’t do anything to deserve that kind of health and I’m still very healthy. When I saw Barbara’s first announcement in the group, it was God nudging me to think about doing this; when I did it, it fell into place.” After overcoming various obstacles and making visits to various hospitals all over the country, in June of last year, Howe was ready to receive the kidney transplant. However, he and Gilvary didn’t meet until the day of the surgery. “He came in and we gave each other a hug,” Howe said. “I asked, ‘What made Photo courtesy of Barbara Howe you do this? You don’t know Fred Howe with Joe Gilvary. me.’ He said, ‘We don’t know each other but I saw he explained. “I figured a picture of you with your P.S. 127 did it too.

Back in December, Gilvary came to New York with his daughter, and Howe and his family invited him for dinner at Gino’s Restaurant in Bay Ridge. They also paid for Gilvary’s hotel stay, calling the place where he was staying and asking the clerk to charge the bill to them. “As far as I was concerned, on June 19, the surgery was done and we were even,” Gilvary said. “They are just so crazy generous. I understand this is a big thing, but still to me it doesn’t seem they owe me anything for it.” The dinner turned out to be a celebration of friendship and life. “I told his daughter, you’re going to get a real understanding of what people think of your dad tonight,” Howe said. “She had no idea what was going to happen. Everyone in the restaurant was hugging him, shaking his hand, and he was totally overwhelmed.” Then, the Howes posted a photo of the encounter on Facebook, and got a tremendous response. Recounted Howe, “One said, ‘You’re an angel. God sent you.’” The two men, both New York Mets fans, plan to see each other again this summer at Citi Field to take in a game.

Brooklyn South police officers honored at NYPD appreciation day luncheon BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

T

he brave men and women in blue were honored for their service to the community on Thurs., Jan. 24 at Park Asia, 6521 Eighth Ave. in Sunset Park. The Chinese New Year celebration and NYPD Brooklyn South appreciation luncheon was hosted by the Brooklyn Community Improvement Association (BCIA). Attending the event were elected officials, Asian community leaders and NYPD representatives from police precincts throughout the borough. Brooklyn Asian-American Civilian Observation Patrol (COP) Chair Louie Liu hosted the event; guests included Assemblymembers Peter Abbate and William Colton, and Democratic District Leader Nancy Tong. “It is so important that we show appreciation for the NYPD because when there

is danger people generally run away from it,” Tong told this paper. “But the police officers run toward it and we must let them know that we appreciate all they do. “I always wear a blue ribbon to show my support for them,” Tong continued. “In fact, in Assemblymember Colton’s office, we give them out to show our support for the police.” According to Liu, the annual event is sponsored by the Asian-American community in conjunction with Lunar New Year. “We work closely with the NYPD and this is our way to thank them for their service and dedication,” Liu told this paper. The NYPD was well-represented by Capt. Robert Conwell, commanding officer of the 68th Precinct; Deputy Inspector Joseph Hayward, commanding officer of the 60th Precinct; Capt. Emmanuel Gonzalez, commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct; Deputy

Msgr. Robert Romano, chaplain of the NYPD, with COP Chair Louie Liu.

The honorees were Chief Brian Conroy, commanding officer, Patrol Borough Brooklyn South, and Capt. Tao Chen, executive officer

of the 71st Precinct. Msgr. Robert  Romano, chaplain of the New York City Police Department offered the blessing, thanking the NYPD for keeping us all safe. The Hui’ Lion Dance Team performed the traditional Chinese lion dance and everyone was treated to a traditional Chinese luncheon.

Also attending were Wei Tang Liu and Xiu Yan Li, the parents of Wenjian Liu, the 32-year-old immigrant police officer who was gunned down in the line of duty while in his squad car in 2015. “It is very important that a community appreciate and support the police officers that protect them

and keep them safe,” Colton told this paper. “It was a tremendous outpouring of people from the community who showed their support for the NYPD police officers who always work so diligently to protect our community.” Abbate was also quick to praise the NYPD. “It’s touching to see how much the community appreciates all the men and women in blue for all their hard work, and for keeping our community safe,” Abbate added.

Cub Scout troop holds annual Pinewood Derby in Bay Ridge BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

F

or the kids of Cub Scout Pack 313, it felt like the Indy 500 at their annual Pinewood Derby championship on Sat., Jan. 27. The race was held at Saint Anselm Catholic Academy, 365 83rd St., in Bay Ridge. The Pinewood Derby is a Cub Scout tradition dating back to 1953. The Scouts receive a car kit in advance and build the cars at home. The cars can weigh no more than five ounces on race day. They perform in a series of heats containing six cars each. Prizes are awarded not only to the fastest three cars in each division, but also in categories such as “coolest-looking car,” “best paint job” and “best theme car,” among others. Many of the scouts design their cars with themes such as pets, superheroes or Fortnight, for example. Cubmaster John Cafiero and his wife, Cub Scout Committee Chair Christina

Thurston Rathbone for the Bear Scouts; Daniel McKenna, Sami Cobuz and Lucian Cobuz for the Wolf Den; Ethan Pennachio, Nicholas Badolato and Noah Bonilla for the Tiger Den; and Gavin Gleason, Michael Rizak and Oliver Jantsch for the Lions. The Boy Scouts of America was formed in 1910 by retired British Army officer Robert Baden-Powell.

The Boy Scouts of America is a volunteer-run program, according to the Boy Scouts’ Brooklyn District Executive Jimmy Cho. “The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law,” Cho said. “There are over 2,400 traditional Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts all over Brooklyn.” In addition, more than 2,000 Scouts attend summer camp including weekend activities, outings, and training events. “Scouting is thriving in the borough from Bay Ridge to East New York, from Greenpoint to Coney Island,” added Cho. Upcoming Scout activities include the annual blue and gold dinner with its LEGO theme and the annual spring camping trip and year-end barbecue.

Dyker homeowners seek Cuomo’s help to lower property taxes BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

C

arl Esposito’s property tax bill is going to be $9,600 this year. And he’s not happy about it. “It went up $1,200 from last year,” he said. Esposito, a resident of 64th Street in Dyker Heights, said his parents paid $35,000 when they bought the three-family house in 1961. Today, the home is worth much more than that. But he doesn’t feel rich. “I’m lucky the house is paid for and I don’t have a mortgage. Otherwise, I don’t know what I’d do,” he said. Esposito was one of a small group of homeowners who joined Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis at a Feb. 1 press conference in which the Republican lawmaker called on Gov. Andrew Cuomo to impose a mandate to bring New York City in line with other cities around the state where property tax levy increases are capped at two percent annually. Under a 2011 state law,

cities around the state are prohibited from raising property tax levies more than two percent each year. New York City was not included in the law. “We want to be part of that cap,” said Malliotakis, whose Assembly district includes parts of Bay Ridge and Staten Island. Unless there is legislative remedy, the only way for New York City to be included in the two percent cap is for the governor to impose it as a mandate, according to Malliotakis. A property tax levy is not the same thing as a property tax, but Malliotakis said putting a cap on the tax levy should help Brooklyn residents like Esposito. “This is a very serious issue. The average New Yorker can’t afford to live here anymore,” Malliotakis said as she stood at a podium in Saint Philip’s Episcopal Church Hall at 1072 80th St. alongside homeowners holding signs reading “The property taxes are too damn high” and “I’m not an ATM.” A property tax is

the tax  that is paid to the city by people who own real estate in that city. The tax levy, on the other hand, is the total amount in dollars that a city plans to collect from property owners. A city usually determines a property tax levy after factoring other sources of income into its budget. Bob Cassara, who has lived in Dyker Heights all of his life and who purchased a one-family home on Bay Ridge Parkway for $110,000 back in 1983, said he is considering leaving the city. “They keep jacking the taxes up,’ he said. Fran Vella-Marrone, president of the Dyker Heights Civic Association, said property taxes are particularly burdensome in her community. “Dyker Heights is a community that is filled with working class and middle class homeowners. The tax is choking homeowners. They’re having problems surviving,” she said. High property taxes also hurt apartment renters, Malliotakis said. “The cost is passed onto you in the

Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (at podium) says property taxes are so high, “the average New Yorker can’t afford to live here anymore.” form of rent increases,” she said. The property tax levy in New York City has gone up a whopping 44 percent over the past five years, Malliotakis said. “This year, the city increased it by eight percent,” she added. When the city budget is increased, the city needs more revenue and raises the property tax levy to get it, Malliotakis said. The reason she is seeking a mandate from Cuomo is because, “We cannot trust Mayor de Blasio and the

City Council to do the right thing,” she said. Adding to the frustration is the complicated way property taxes are assessed, according to those attending the press conference. New York City uses fractional assessments, a system that allows homeowners in affluent neighborhoods like Park Slope to pay less than people living in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights who own similar properties. “There is such a disparity. The mayor’s property tax bill is $4,500 for a house worth

$1 million,” said Malliotakis, who ran against de Blasio for mayor in 2017 and lost. While Brooklyn homeowners lament the amount of money they have pay, studies have shown that, relatively speaking, property taxes aren’t all that high here. Brooklyn has an effective property tax rate of 0.65 percent, less than half the state average, according to SmartAsset.com. Cuomo’s office did not return messages from this newspaper.
