Mr. Rose goes to Washington: The first 100 days BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@ BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

The classic Jimmy Stewart movie about an idealistic young man who goes to Washington to make a difference in the Senate seems to mirror the path freshman U.S. Rep. Max Rose has taken during his first 100 days in Congress. Rose, a Democrat, sailed into office on a blue wave of change with a fervent following of young and passionate volunteers who helped him unseat incumbent GOP U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan. The 32-year-old veteran, who represents the 11th Congressional District, which includes parts of southern Brooklyn and all of Staten Island, has experienced a great deal in a short time. He served as an active duty officer in Afghanistan from 2012-2013 and earned a Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Combat Infantry Badge. Rose is Ranger-qualified and continues to serve in the Guard. He currently serves on the House Committees on Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security, and is chairperson of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. Rose recently took the time

to sit down with this paper to answer some questions about his first impressions of serving in the nation’s capital, what he has accomplished and what he hopes to accomplish going forward. Q: First of all, congratulations on your first 100 days in office. Is it everything you thought it would be? Rose: That and more. Privilege is an overused term, but this is truly a great privilege. It’s an extraordinary honor and it’s one that you can’t take lightly. It’s a great joy to be able to represent 100,000 people and to be their voice in Congress and to advance the ball forward. I couldn’t ask for anything else. Q: Tell me about the significance of the first bill you passed allowing construction of the East Shore Seawall on Staten Island? Why did this take precedence? Rose: Six years after Superstorm Sandy, the seawall wasn’t even started yet. The money was there but it got tied up in bureaucracy and all the while people were literally and figuratively staring out at the seas that decimated their homes, and they hadn’t seen

any construction started. And so we put everything we had, taking the baton from Dan Donovan in terms of getting this last piece of bureaucratic red tape eliminated. I hope, and I know, that when we break ground on this seawall and as we continue to build it, we’re also going to see real estate value increase; we’re going to see flood insurance bills go down. And people are going to know how government can get it right. The bill was signed by the president. There haven’t been instances of a freshman getting a bill signed by the president. This wasn’t just the House, it was signed by the president. Q: You are the first member from New York City to chair the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Intelligence and Counterterrorism. Tell me about the initiative to increase Homeland Security funding for counterterrorism programs and your bipartisan effort to build support and educate new members of Congress on the importance of fully and permanently funding the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund? Rose: Let’s start with the Victim Compensation Fund. This shouldn’t even be a prob-

lem. We’re doing everything we can to have Congress resoundingly pass this, and then have the Senate pass it as well, and then have the president sign it. At one point or another Congress has got to get something done. They can’t get

locked up and tied up in questions of cost, bureaucracy and legality. We have to get this done and in the right way. You know, I’ve had a lot of time to spend with first responders and some of them are really sick and they say, “Knowing what I know now, I would still

Lawmakers demand Verrazzano toll discount for Brooklyn drivers BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

State Sen. Andrew Gounardes announced he is introducing legislation to give Brooklyn motorists who frequently travel over the VerrazzanoNarrows Bridge the same discount that Staten Islanders enjoy, calling the recently imposed $19 toll “highway robbery.” Under Gounardes’ proposal, Brooklyn residents who drive over the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge 10 times or more a month will pay $5.50 per trip with E-ZPass, the same rate Staten Islanders pay. “We have so many people who have to cross that bridge every single day,” Gounardes said at a press conference held in Bay Ridge’s John Paul Jones Park at the foot of the bridge Tuesday morning. Many Brooklyn residents work or go to school on Staten Island and many have relatives who live in that borough, he said. At $19, the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge is the most expensive crossing in the U.S. The new toll went into effect on March 31. The previous toll was $17. The bridge operates via a one-way toll system. Drivers pay traveling to Staten Island. Motorists traveling toward Brooklyn drive into the borough for free. Gounardes, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge and several other Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods, is the main sponsor of the legislation. State Sen. Diane Savino, a Democrat whose district includes neighborhoods on both the Staten Island and Brooklyn sides of the

bridge, is the co-sponsor. Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus is sponsoring the bill in the State Assembly. Gounardes, Savino and Frontus were joined at the press conference by Councilmember Justin Brannan, a Democrat representing Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and parts of Bensonhurst and Gravesend.

Brannan agreed that Brooklyn residents deserve a discount. “The last time I checked, the bridge has two sides,” he said. “We’re talking about fairness and equity,” Frontus added. Under the current system, drivers coming from both boroughs get an EZPass discount. With E-ZPass, the rate comes down from $19 to $12.24 for

Brooklynites. However, Staten Islanders with E-ZPass pay $5.50 per trip. Those who reside on Staten Island and do not have E-ZPass but use the MTA’s E-Token pay $9.80. Gounardes’ plan would work like this: Drivers would first have to register for the discount program. Then, on a driver’s 10th trip over the bridge within a month, the discount would kick in and the motorist would receive a credit on their bill. It would work whether drivers use E-ZPass or are billed through license plate cameras. The proposal is designed to help Brooklynites who frequently travel across the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge to go to work or school on Staten Island, Savino said. “We’re not talking about people who go once a month to the mall.” Gounardes didn’t offer an estimate on the number of people who stand to benefit from the discount. “It would be open to all Kings County residents,” he said. Savino is confident that the MTA can absorb the cost. “We’re not bankrupting the system,” she said. There have been previous attempts to give Brooklyn drivers a break on the tolls, which have failed. In 2018, the State Senate went so far as to pass a bill sponsored by then-senator Marty Golden that would have given Brooklyn residents a discount for making three or more trips. The Assembly did not pass the bill. Gounardes described his bill as “targeted and focused” on people who use the bridge on a frequent basis. MTA spokesperson Christopher McKniff said that the agency did not want to comment on pending legislation.

rush in to danger and do what I did.” It’s unbelievable. They deserve so much better from us. Q: What is your solution for fixing the MTA, especially in regard to the R train? Rose: When you look at something like congestion pricing the issue is two-fold: One is that there can be a lot of this additional money into the system and we can still continue to get ripped off and ignored. In all of these community nightmares is the consequence of human decisions. It’s a consequence of human decisions that Staten Island doesn’t have a subway; it’s a consequence of human decisions that the R train is amongst the longest in the city in terms of being the slowest. It’s a consequence of human decision that we’re going to be one of the last places to get our (train) signals up there. So what I think we have to do is make sure that we are amongst the loudest in the room at all levels of government, with city and state and federal elected officials pushing and pushing and pushing to say, “Look, you put us at the back of the line for decades, now you reverse it. Now we’re at the front, the first to get our signals up there, the first to get more buses, the first to get another bus depot built.” People really are in pain. We have an issue where we talked about bifurcating the R train and I’m going to stay on top of them. Q: So the R train should go to Court Street? Rose: No, I think it should go to Canal. If you take the R train past Canal you’re probably just going for a joyride. So, let’s just bifurcate it so that when someone throws up in Queens on the R train, it doesn’t slow us down over here.  To read the full interview, go to brooklynreporter.com.

Cops say a Sunset Park man stabbed his wife and daughter Friday before setting fire to their family apartment. BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

A

man was arrested Friday after authorities say he stabbed his wife and daughter and then himself, before setting fire to the family’s Sunset Park home. Cops say that at around 3:42 p.m. on April 12, 65-year-old Ismael Alvarez entered his apartment near 42nd Street and Fourth Avenue and got

into an argument with his 63-year-old wife. Authorities say he then stabbed his spouse in the finger and slashed his 45-year-old daughter’s shoulders. Alvarez then allegedly stabbed himself in the stomach and set the apartment ablaze. Officers forced their way into the apartment and removed the two victims and suspect. FDNY promptly responded and put out the fire.

Alvarez was charged with two counts of assault, two counts of arson, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of criminal mischief, two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and two counts of menacing. The suspect was taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn and is listed in stable condition. His wife and daughter were taken to Maimonides Medical Center and are also listed in stable condition.

ops are looking for a pair of perps they say robbed a food delivery man of his electric bike while he was working in Bay Ridge. According to authorities, at around 2:45 p.m. on March 28, two men approached a 55-year-old delivery man who was making a delivery near 89th Street and Ridge Boulevard and told him they were the customers that ordered the food. One of the perps allegedly grabbed the bag with the food inside and told the victim they weren’t going to pay for it. The second then hopped on the man’s bike while the first told the delivery man they were going to take his ride. The first perp then simulated a weapon in his pants pocket, police said. Both perps then got on the bike and fled westbound on 89th Street. The suspects were caught on camera taking the wheels on a joyride — and then wiping out — before getting away. Police describe the first suspect as a Hispanic man in his twenties. He was last seen wearing a green hooded sweater, gray sweatpants and black sneakers. The second suspect is also said to be a Hispanic man in his twenties. He was last seen wearing a dark colored baseball cap, a blue hooded sweater, a blue hooded jacket, black sweatpants and black sneakers.

t takes two. Beyond at Liberty View collaborated with Industry City on Saturday, April 13 for the duo’s second annual Easter Bunny Hop event, which drew families to the two complexes for a bevy of holiday-centric activities for the holiday, such as an Easter egg hunt and a photo op with the Easter Bunny. Bari Fagan, the director of brand integration, video, and promotions for Bed Bath & Beyond, was happy with the turnout. Over 2,000 children showed up, according to Fagan. “We were thrilled to be able to host our second annual Easter Bunny Hop this past Saturday,” she said. “We had a wonderful turnout of parents, grandparents and children of all ages who came to celebrate Easter, take their picture with the Easter Bunny and join in the bunny hop Easter egg hunt. “Beyond at Liberty View is happy that we are able to offer the community and our neighbors a truly safe and family friendly day,” she went on, adding that, this year, the event had beautiful weather.

Kids find Easter egg-stravaganza in Leif Ericson Park BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he hunt was on and lots of kids signed up for the search! Parent Child Relationship, a group formed by Asian-American parents in Dyker Heights to maintain Leif Ericson Park, hosted its Third Annual Easter Egg Hunt in the park on April 14, attracting large numbers of children all eager to look for the treasured eggs. Parent Child Relationship, also known as PC Relationship, has rapidly been gaining notice for its work to improve Leif Ericson Park. The group won the Golden Trowel Award from Partnership for Parks at a ceremony last month honoring volunteer organizations. “We wanted to start the group because we believe cleaning a park can deepen the connection between parents and their children. Parents have told us that their kids no longer play video games. They want to go to the park,” group member Iris Ng told this

Art LINDSAY PACKER: CALL AND RESPONSE: DEPTH OF FIELD WITH MELANIE MAAR Lindsay Packer premieres Depth of Field, her first commissioned work as an Issue Artist-In-Residence. Collaborating with dancer and choreographer Melanie Maar, the artists use light, color, repetition, movement & the reverberations that emanate from their movements to define and redefine the space around them. When: Thursday, April 18th, 8 p.m. Where: Cobble Hill/Issue Project Room (22 Boerum Place)

DIGITAL FAIRYTALES: VENGEANCE IS MINE When one encounters the term “Vengeance,” it is with excitement, suspicion and dread. For vengeance to exist, there must be a prior

perception of victimhood, a grievance. The scale of which is determined by the protagonist, but the roles can quickly be flipped. And flipped and flipped again. The chain of vengeance can go on and on and, unless broken, lead to ever escalating levels of calamity. When: Through April 30th Where: DUMBO/Made in NY Media Center (30 John Street)

A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE/SHADOW LAKE Smack Mellon announces two solo exhibitions, Katie Bell: A Place for Everything and Everything in Its Place and Austin Ballard: Shadow Lake. Both artists create work inspired by the designed and built environment but adopt their own unique approaches. Katie Bell takes discarded and readymade objects to construct immense assemblages that match the industrial scale

of Smack Mellon’s building. Austin Ballard, on the other hand, turns his focus onto household objects, specifically light fixtures and lampshades, to create a more intimate setting that resembles a suburban domestic interior. In both of these projects, however, the artists call attention to the way that architecture and design objects shape — whether dramatically or subtly —how we see and respond to the world. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through April 21st, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)

BLUE MOUNTAIN GALLERY AND FRIENDS: EXHIBITION TO BENEFIT THE NEW SANCTUARY COALITION A passionate group of accomplished mid-career artists are mounting an exhibit in Brooklyn Heights to benefit New Sanctuary Coalition. The New Sanctuary Coalition of NYC is an interfaith network of congregations, organizations, and individuals, standing publicly in solidarity with families and communities resisting detention and deportation in order to preserve family unity.  The grass roots organization has

TRANSCENDENTAL PATHWAY Featuring work by Rachel Cohen, Deanna Lee, Christina Massey, Elizabeth Riley, Christine Romanell, Linda Schmidt, Transcendental can be described simply as abstract. It has other definitions though from mathematical use, such as incapable of being the root of an algebraic equation with rational coefficients, (π for example), or as relating to an experience determined by the mind’s makeup. Six artists in this exhibit take on different approaches to that definition through their individual styles of abstraction, be that from their intuitive creative approaches to inspiration from mathematical equations.

The deepest blue requires more than just one application, it is a multitude of layers blended into one another, with slightly different circumstances and results each time, as sapphire streams ebb and flow concurrently. The azure currents of time, energy, and memory upwell and merge in union. Lea Thomas applies this aesthetic philosophy in her practice, creating a pool of the deepest blue for her hand-woven textiles. With a lineage harkening back to the traditional use of Japanese indigo in its process and symbolism, Thomas’s work echoes the motion of her predecessors, diving far under the waves of deep time.

KITCHEN STILL LIFES BY JAN GROOVER Jan Groover created her famous Kitchen Still Lifes in 1978 and 1979. Using a large-format camera, she transformed colanders, knives, spatulas and baking pans into objects of beauty that still hold a visual interest that transcends their common use. Her seductively modern color palette of greens, pewter, bronze and brown tonalities permeates the space dissected by kitchen paraphernalia. These take on a new visual meaning as a result of Groover’s juxtaposition of the elements. Although never unrecognizable as everyday objects, these utensils float into an abstract amalgam of planes and shapes. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through May 11th Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden, Inc

Women’s eye health tips

t is easy to take vision for granted. However, it’s important for everyone to pay attention to their eye health. During April, Lighthouse Guild, the leading organization for vision and health, is sharing valuable information about women’s eye health and safety. Dr. Susan Weinstein, low vision optometrist at Lighthouse Guild, says, “The most important step every woman can take to protect her eye health is to get regular, comprehensive, dilated eye exams. If you notice any sudden changes in your vision, you should seek care immediately.” Weinstein offers some pointers to help women take care of their eyes: •Eye Disease Is More Common in Women. Studies have shown that women are at increased risk for glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. These disorders can lead to vision loss if left unchecked. The good news is they may be effectively treated if detected early. •Pregnancy. Physiological changes during pregnancy can impact vision, leading to a change in prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. These changes are usually temporary and return to normal after pregnancy. •Menopause. With aging, vision change is common. For women, the fluctuations in hormones during and after menopause can cause dry eye. Common eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration all increase with age. •Dry Eye. Medications, hormonal changes and aging can lead to dry eye. Artificial tears, purchased over-the-counter, or

prescription eye drops may be recommended. Antihistamine drops used for allergy relief should not be used to address dry eye. •Let Eyes Breathe. After a busy day or a night out, resist the temptation to go to sleep wearing contact lenses. Sleeping in contact lenses is never a good idea. Daily disposable contact lenses need to be thrown out every day. Other types of disposable contact lenses should be cleaned every night. •Wear Protective Eye Gear. Help safeguard your eyes from dirt, debris and trauma by wearing eye protection when playing sports, making repairs or engaging in work that could lead to eye injury. •Get UV-protected sunglasses. Tinted glasses will not necessarily protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. It is essential to get proper quality eyewear that provides both UVA and UVB coverage to protect your eyes. •Watch the Mascara Wand. Avoid applying makeup, such as eyeliner, foundation or cover-up, so close to the eyes that it gets into your eye. Such contact with makeup can cause blurry vision and lead to irritation. Avoid applying mascara while driving or in moving vehicles – the mascara wand could hit the eye, damaging the cornea and impacting vision years later. •Makeup Allergies. If eyes become irritated, it could be due to certain preservatives or other substances in makeup products. Stop using the product that appears to be causing the irritation and try a different formula. Again, if a reaction develops, see an eye care professional.

QUINOA SALAD WITH GREENS INGREDIENTS FOR THE DRESSING: • 2 scallions, minced (white and light green parts only) • 1 large ripe avocado, flesh only • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice • 1 to 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar • 2 to 4 tablespoons of water • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil • 1 cup fresh basil, chopped • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, chopped • Kosher salt to taste

FOR THE SALAD: • 1 cup dry quinoa • 3 cups mixed greens (spinach, arugula, chard) • 1 cup cooked edamame • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped • 4 radishes, thinly sliced • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes • Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS 1. Create the dressing by adding all ingredients into a food processor and processing until smooth. If necessary, add water or oil to thin. 2. First rinse the quinoa in a strainer under cool running water. Next, add it into a saucepan with two cups of water. Bring that to a boil. Cover and reduce heat. Cook until quinoa has absorbed all of the liquid (around 12 to 15 minutes). 3. With the quinoa is still warm, toss with mixed greens until leaves wilt down a bit. Stir remaining ingredients: edamame, walnuts, radishes, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Drizzle in your homemade dressing. Serve warm and enjoy!

See ten terrific Bushwick landmarks Hallelujah! Renovated St. Barbara’s looks divine

By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It rises like a mirage on Central Avenue, a fantasy version of American Southwest architecture in Spanish Colonial times. Its 175-foot bell towers are pale white like confectioner’s sugar. So are the terra-cotta sculptures of Jesus and winged angels above the front door. The rest of the building is golden brick that catches the afternoon sunlight. This is St. Barbara’s Roman Catholic Church, Bushwick’s most eye-popping city landmark. Scaffolding obscured the facade for years. Now the towers’ exteriors have been renovated. They look so beautiful. Helmle & Huberty, a distinguished Brooklyn architecture firm of yesteryear, designed the century-old church, whose address is 138 Bleecker St. Landmark designation was proposed in 1980, then postponed and postponed and postponed. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission revisited the issue a couple years ago when it made a herculean effort to clear a backlog of 95 designation proposals that had sat on its calendar, some for a half-century. The commission voted to designate St. Barbara’s as an individual landmark in December 2016. It’s worth a visit to Bushwick just to see this Spanish Colonial Revival-style church.

But in fact there are numerous city landmarks in this funky hipster-and-Hispanic neighborhood if you know where to look for them — enough to make a spring stroll worth your while. I’ve made this checklist for you to pull up on your phone when you’re taking your walk. DOERING-BOHACK HOUSE Nothing else in Bushwick looks like this building. The standalone 1880s wood frame mansion at 1090 Greene Ave. reminds me of a farmhouse — if the farmer was rich and had a taste for neo-Grec and Queen Anne-style architecture. Prominent Brooklyn architect Theobald Engelhardt designed Doering-Bohack House. One of the people who lived there over the years was Henry Bohack, who owned a chain of grocery stores that was named after him. The buttery-yellow clapboard house on the corner of Greene Avenue and Goodwin Place was renovated a couple years ago. It looks terrific. Daffodils were blooming in the yard the day I strolled over to see it.

CATHERINA LIPSIUS HOUSE This is a brewer’s mansion to be reckoned with. The red-brick house at 670 Bushwick Ave. has a round turret

with a pointy roof on one corner of it. On a dark and stormy night, it would be a suitable setting for a spooky Halloween film. Catherina Lipsius, who owned a brewery with her family, commissioned the American Round-Arched style house in the late 1880s. Architect Theobald Engelhardt designed this home, too.

THE BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY’S DEKALB BRANCH The flowering trees on the lawn are stunning this time of year. And what a beautiful building. The borough of Brooklyn will forever be thankful for funding that philanthropist Andrew Carnegie provided for 20 libraries at the very beginning of the 20th century. If you know your public buildings, you recognize Carnegie libraries the moment you see them. They are stand-alone buildings made of brick and limestone on corner lots. Their architectural style is Classical Revival. The DeKalb Branch at 790 Bushwick Ave. is one of the Carnegie libraries. A 2004 designation report the city Landmarks Preservation Commission wrote about this branch says William Tubby was the architect. This library was built in 1905.

Eye on REAL ESTATE The one at 617 Central Ave. is really something. Engine Company 252, which was built in 1896 and 1897, is a Flemish Revival-style design. It is made of brick, red sandstone and terra-cotta. The architects were the Parfitt Brothers, who were a powerhouse Brooklyn firm in that era. The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1995 designation report says it is “one of the finest firehouses ever erected in Brooklyn.”

THE 83RD PRECINCT POLICE STATION AND STABLE

The second house from the right is landmarked Peter P. and Rosa M. Huberty House on INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan Bushwick Avenue.

See ten terrific Bushwick landmarks — Continued from page 10INB —

THE REFORMED CHURCH OF SOUTH BUSHWICK

This Greek Revival-style wood frame church at 855 Bushwick Ave. was built in the early 1850s, but its steeple harkens back to 17th-century London. I’m not knowledgeable enough about ecclesiastical architecture to know things like this. But the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report about the Reformed Church of South Bushwick, which was written in 1968, says steeples with octagonal belfries and octagonal spires populated London’s skyline after the Great Fire of 1666.

Christopher Wren designed churches with these signature steeples to replace houses of worship that the conflagration destroyed.

PETER P. AND ROSA M. HUBERTY HOUSE

William Tubby, the DeKalb Branch’s architect, designed a fabulous Romanesque Revival-style police station at 179 Wilson Ave. that was built in 1894 and 1895. The 83rd Precinct Police Station and Stable has a corner tower and looks like a fantasy castle. The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1977 designation report told me something I did not know about Bushwick, which was heavily populated by German immigrants at the end of the 19th century. It’s that Wilson Avenue was originally called Hamburg Avenue, which of course is the name of a city in Germany. The avenue was rechristened in honor of President Woodrow Wilson in 1919, after World War I ended, the report said.

PUBLIC SCHOOL 86 When Brooklyn was an independent city, Irish immigrant James Naughton was its Board of Education’s Superintendent of Buildings. This meant he was the architect who designed Brooklyn’s public schools. One of his Bushwick designs is a designated city landmark — Public School 86 at 220 Irving Ave. The brick and stone schoolhouse was constructed in 1892 and 1893. Its architectural style is Romanesque Revival. It is laid out in the shape of the letter “I,” the 1991 designation report about it says.

What a wonderful son. Ulrich Huberty, an architect who did great things in Brooklyn before he died tragically at age 33, designed the house at 1019 Bushwick Ave. for his parents. It’s Colonial Revival in style and has smart touches like a widow’s walk. It was built in 1900, an auspicious year at the dawn of a new century. The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 2017 designation report about the handsome home says typhoid fever killed Huberty. He was so young. Huberty was the co-founder of Helmle & Huberty, the architecture firm that designed St. Barbara’s. RIDGEWOOD MASONIC TEMPLE This Masons’ lodge has been converted to an apartment building — and it looks pretty great. Architecture firm Koch & Wagner designed the Ridgewood Masonic Temple at 1054 Bushwick Ave. It was built in 1919 and 1920. The low-rise building, which is made of buff-colored brick and rusticated stone, was designated as a city landmark in 2014. Look at those multistory arched windows above the front entrance. So dignified and restrained. Don’t you love Bushwick Avenue?

ENGINE COMPANY 252 Public School 86 is an Irving Avenue landmark.

Some of Brooklyn’s most eyecatching buildings are its old-fashioned firehouses.

• The name “Ewok” was never spoken in the original trilogy. • The group ‘N Sync almost had a cameo in “Attack of the Clones,” but were edited out of the final cut. • Depending on what movie you’re watching, Yoda has a different number of toes. He has three toes in “The Phantom Menace,” but in “The Empire Strikes Back,” “Return of the Jedi” and “Revenge of the Sith,” he has four. • There were no female fighter pilots in the original trilogy.

Fun Facts About “Game of Thrones” • Tyrion Lannister has appeared in more episodes than any other character – 58 out of 64, including every episode in Season 7. • Iwan Rheon, the actor who played the loathed Ramsay Bolton, had previously been up for a different role before he got the part: Jon Snow. It was down to him and Kit Harrrington before the showrunners decided on Harrington. • “Game of Thrones” has included, to date, 10 actors who appeared in “Harry Potter” movies and eight actors who were in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” • Writer George RR Martin has said that he imagined actor Peter Dinklage in the role of Tyrion Lannister before the show came into being — and no other actor was considered for the part.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from April 16, 1953 ON APRIL 16, 1878, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The remains of the late William M. Tweed will probably be buried on Wednesday next in Green-Wood Cemetery. Public attention has been directed to a rule of the cemetery which provides that ‘no person shall be interred therein who shall have died in any prison or shall have been executed for any crime.’ The question as to whether this rule would be enforced in the case of Tweed has occasioned considerable speculation.”  ON APRIL 16, 1936, the Eagle reported, “With 865 new cases reported, measles continued to spread in Brooklyn during the week ending Saturday, according to a report issued today by Dr. John L. Rice, Commissioner of Health. As isolation prevents the spread of measles, the report urges that children exposed to the disease be put to bed and kept away from other children, and that a doctor be consulted. Diphtheria continued prevalent in the borough, 15 new cases having been reported last week. The report points out that this disease remains until about June and advocates immediate immunization of every child under the age of six years.”  ON APRIL 16, 1953, the Eagle reported, “Washington, April 16 (UP) — President [Dwight] Eisenhower challenged Russia’s new leaders today to prove their will for peace by ending the Korean War, lifting the Iron Curtain from satellite countries and joining a world disarmament pact that would outlaw atomic weapons. He seized the diplomatic initiative from the Communists in a major foreign policy speech listing specific ‘deeds’ the Russians can perform to demonstrate the sincerity of their recent peace talk. He said the death of Soviet Premier Josef Stalin has given his Kremlin successors ‘a precious chance to turn the black tide of events’ sweeping the world toward atomic war, but warned that ‘we do not yet know’ whether they mean to do it.”

For Laughing Out Loud • What do you call an imaginary color? A pigment of your imagination. • My girlfriend isn’t talking to me because apparently I ruined her birthday. I’m not sure what I did – I didn’t even know it was her birthday… • What do you call a sad strawberry? A blueberry. • I used to be a narcissist. But now look at me.

ANGER MANAGEMENT

t appears the anger management courses Brooklyn Democratic state Sen. Kevin Parker underwent a few months ago failed to curb his tendencies to fly out of control and become physically threatening. Late last year, Parker on his social media account encouraged the spokesperson for the Senate Republicans to commit suicide. In the wake of bipartisan outrage, he agreed to take an anger management course and initially apologized for his inappropriate tweet. A week or two later, he withdrew his apology, but did I am told go forward with an effort to address his anger issues — issues that have come up off and on over the years. In fact, several years back, local state Sen. Diane Savino was on the receiving end of his menacing behavior in a private Democratic Senate conference. The argument became so heated that

I

several Senate sergeants at arms who in their official capacity have the authority to detain needed to be called into the room. Last week, Parker was at it again with what observers described as a loud and angry outburst against freshman state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi over her public statements that she was dissatisfied with some members over their role in a heavily criticized budget process. Biaggi, the granddaughter of legendary Rep. and police officer Mario Biaggi, grew up in the rough-and-tumble world of Bronx politics and had no interest in backing off. Parker, as the disagreement escalated, apparently became more aggressive and, in the words of some, menacing. Now, questions have arisen relating to the earlier incident and the failure of the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate. As if there

was not enough drama, it turns out that Biaggi is the chairperson of the Ethics Committee. Although she made a statement in the Democratic conference that would indicate that she did Parker a favor at the time, she has since denied that she provided special treatment. Is Albany no more than a breathing, living example of the French proverb “plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose“ (“the more things change, the more they stay the same”)? After spending a 40-year career working in the state legislature, I have seen more than a few instances that would make me think that is the case. Of course, I do not claim to be non-partisan. Yet, I think it is clear that several different actions need to be taken immediately with the hope that they will send a more permanent message. The problem in Albany is

COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR

The problem in Albany is not the ethics rules on the books, it is the culture that elects individuals who have no interest in following the laws and rules.

not the ethics rules on the books, it is the culture that elects individuals who have no interest in following the laws and rules. Parker needs to undergo a full ethics review. He continues to show violent tendencies and his inability to control himself within the inner workings of a legislative conference creates a whole other set of problems. Inasmuch as the Ethics

VOTE OF CONFIDENCE

n today’s polarized political landscape, we seldom see major legislation sail through with bipartisan support, especially not when it will fundamentally alter the status quo. And yet that is what happened on January 14 of this year. On the second full day of the new legislative session in Albany, a comprehensive package of voting reforms was passed. Some of the floor votes had final tallies of 44-17 and 56-5. After years of attempting to advance bills to revamp New York’s antiquated election laws, Democrats put forth a comprehensive slate of changes and, in large part, both sides worked together to enact them into law. These weren’t controversial proposals. They have had widespread support across all political

affiliations and have been proven to be effective in other states. Citizens of the Empire State deserve to have elections that are accessible, efficient and equitable. Rather than being one of only 12 states in the nation without early voting, busy New Yorkers will now have the option of visiting their polling site to cast their ballots on not just one day, but instead on one of 10, including two full weekends. For a state with some of the worst voter turnout numbers in the country, who wouldn’t want to shift to a system that has been proven to engage more citizens to participate in one of our most important rights? Whereas we were the only state last year to hold our federal and state primaries on different days — months

apart no less — we will now enjoy having them on a single day. Who could argue with scrapping a process that confused voters, depressed turnout and cost the state millions of dollars unnecessarily?

For a state with some of the worst voter turnout numbers in the country, who wouldn’t want to shift to a system that has been proven to engage more citizens to participate in one of our most important rights? New Yorkers who moved within the state would often find out on election day that since they hadn’t submitted a voter registration form with their new address at least 20 days in advance, they wouldn’t be allowed to

Committee chairperson might need a closer look as a result of public statements, it would make sense if, even only temporarily, Biaggi be suspended as chairperson. Of course, inasmuch as the most recent incident involved her, it would not make sense for her to be looking at Parker regardless. If Parker is shown to have crossed a formal ethical line, the Senate should impose strong penalties which should at a minimum result in a removal of his seniority, possible loss of staff and certainly a return to a new set of anger management classes. If Biaggi is shown to have buried an ethics investigation intentionally, she should be removed from the committee, prevented from chairing any committee over the rest of this term and

possibly, depending on the nature of her intervention (she had a formal complaint which she failed to act upon), be looked at for additional sanctions. It is worth noting that until the Democratic Party took over the Senate in 2019, the Ethics Committee was the only equal committee in the Senate — there were just as many Democrats on it as Republicans. Due to the nature of the committee, this was a longstanding tradition. The state Assembly committee still has an equal number of Democrats and Republicans. In light of all that has happened, I think it would be logical for the Senate to reconstitute the membership of its Ethics Committee so that there are equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

vote. The new law that will allow every voter in this circumstance to transfer their registration easily is about as obvious a commonsense fix one can come up with. While proposals to lower the age to vote have been met with mixed reactions, Democrats moved ahead with a voting reform that everyone can get behind. Sixteen and 17-year-olds applying at the DMV for a driving permit or driver’s license will now be able to pre-register to vote. Once they turn 18, without any further bureaucratic processes, they’ll automatically

be able to begin participating in the process that provides us all with a say in our government. Also passed were bills to amend the state’s Constitution to allow same-day voter registration and no-excuse absentee voting. These measures will require the following legislature to pass them again so that the process can move forward to create constitutional amendments ensuring these rights. It’s particularly important to keep this in mind when voting next November, as these changes will not become law until further legislative action following the 2020 election. I’m not sure why, under Republican leadership,

these reforms went nowhere in the state Senate for years, but at this point, I don’t much care. The newly Democratic-controlled majority didn’t simply ram through legislation. They passed it with most of their Republican counterparts voting aye, as well. There are plenty of issues those of us on either side of the political spectrum will disagree on, but there’s no reason not to work together where there is general agreement as to what will most benefit New Yorkers. And all of our elected officials, regardless of party, can play a role in that. We’re all on equal footing where common ground exists.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Community to rename 101st St. in memory of Greatest Generation’s Own Larry Morrish

Volunteer deeds built modern Bay Ridge

When Larry Morrish and I teamed up to create “The View from Bay Ridge” on BCAT 17 years ago, I knew we were also telling the story of one of our greatest volunteers in Morrish himself. For more than five years we covered cleanups, restaurants and the work of other outstanding leaders like Marty Golden, Vincent Gentile, Bob Howe and Chip

Cafiero — each of whom had their own dealings with Morrish on a wide variety of community projects. On May 18, many of us will gather at 101st Street outside Fort Hamilton Army Base with Morrish’s lovely wife Phillipa to name the street in his honor. It is an honor much deserved for one of the greatest leaders of Bay Ridge’s Greatest Generation.

Larry Morrish and Chuck Otey with BCAT Director Kecia Cole “save” Alpine Cinemas.

“The View from Bay Ridge” covers “Taste of the Ridge” with Msgr. Jamie Gigantiello.
