Dyker Residents Wary of Impending Development at Angel Guardian Home BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

P

ermits have been filed for a new three-story building at the site of the storied Angel Guardian Home in Dyker Heights, according to the Department of Buildings (DOB) and, while reports sound nice, residents are still worry they might not come to fruition. Though the current filings already appear to have been disapproved by DOB plan examiners, moves are at least being made as the site’s prior owners, the Sisters of Mercy, just last month closed a $37.5 million deal on the massive property, located at 6301 12th Avenue, as the Brooklyn Daily first reported. According to the Daily, the site’s developer, Scott Barone, has said he stands by plans to build “market-rate, affordable, and senior housing on the property, along with a school,” and “luxury senior living,” while also keeping its main building, which locals repeatedly pushed to landmark. Barone has also pledged to build underground parking with about 100 spaces, the Daily reported, which also said that Barone has offered the Catholic Charities Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens a 10-year-lease for the now-shuttered Narrows Senior Center. The structure was built in 1902, according to city

In 2003, the Angel Guardian Home merged with St. Mary’s of the Angels Home to form the MercyFirst network of agencies. Up until late last year, the campus – which spans the entire block – housed the offices for the Sisters’ foster care program as well as the senior center, which closed its doors despite community pushback in May. According to YIMBY, initial filings were for a 30-foot tall structure which would also include a swimming pool, indoor recreation space and rooftop terrace, though there is no sign of such amenities in any of the recent applications.

Residents say all of that is just not possible. “We think he’s full of it,” said one neighbor to the property who requested anonymity when speaking to this paper. “It’s too much to promise.”

When asked why another owner’s name is listed on the filings (Barone’s is nowhere to be found on any of the three initial permit applications, though a Sugnam Chang is listed as the applicant and a Guan Y.

Li as the property’s owner), a representative of Barone’s confirmed the Daily’s reports of the developer’s intentions, and chalked his absence on all paperwork up to the project’s early stages. “The project in Dyker Heights will consist of a school component, senior housing, market rate condos and affordable rentals. Barone Management will oversee the development of the school and senior housing components while a Barone Management affiliate, Basic Groups Corp., will oversee the development of the condominium and rental homes,” the rep said. “There will be several filings with the DOB in the coming months.” Chang is affiliated with Basic Groups Corp, according to the current filings, though Li is listed as president of another entity called “12th Ave Real Property LLC.” It is unconfirmed, though

speculated, that the Chang in question is the developer tied to McSam Hotel Group, known for constructing large-scale projects. However, a search on the city’s Department of Technology and Telecommunications website lists the owners as a trio of LLCs — “JJ SS DH LLC,” “Sunshine Brooklyn LLC” and “12th Ave Real Property LLC” — only the last of which appears on the current filings. “We just want some answers, and some transparency,” said a neighbor, who also said she wondered why the project had not yet been calendared by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which had agreed earlier this year to study the venerable home for potential landmarking. “We protested and we protested and now, there are all these meetings that we’re not a part of. We just want to know what’s going on.”

Cops Seek Perp in Bay Ridge Slaying BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

A

man was murdered in Bay Ridge in the middle of rush hour, and it’s still unclear whether he was shot or stabbed. According to a police source, on Friday, September 7 at around 6 p.m., at 93rd Street and Fourth Avenue, a fight broke out during which the victim, identified as Grei Frasheri, 23, was killed. Cops initially said that Frasheri had been fatally shot in the neck/chest area; a report in the Sept. 12 Daily News cited the cause of death as stabbing, and noted that cops originally thought that Frasheri had been shot to death because of the presence of shell casings in the area. Frasheri was rushed to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn where he was pronounced dead. According to Councilmember Justin Brannan, Frasheri is Albanian born. He was waked at Clavin Funeral Home in Bay

Heartfelt 9/11 Remembrance Ceremonies Held in Bay Ridge and Marine Park

BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

C

loudy skies and the threat of rain did not stop hundreds of people from attending two solemn ceremonies that took place on Tuesday, Sept. 11 in Bay Ridge and Marine Park to mark the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. State Sen. Marty Golden organized both events as touching tributes to the nearly 3,000 lives lost when

terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and hijacked United Flight 93, before passengers heroically took over the cockpit and crashed the plane into a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, preventing the pilot from hitting another target. The first service took place at Carmine Carro Community Center at 3000 Fillmore Ave. at 6 p.m. in Marine Park, followed by another remembrance service at 7:30 p.m. at the American Veterans Memorial Pier, 69th Street and Shore Road. William Guarinello, chairperson of Brooklyn Remembers, served as master of ceremonies for the 69th Street Pier ceremony. He presided over the presentation of the colors by the New York City Joint Service Color Guard. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Thomas Chin of St.

In addition, two individuals were arrested. The arrests, the precinct said, were made by its new Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs) as part of a new neighborhood policing system inspired by the old beat cop. This most recent effort comes just over a year after the arrest of several employees of an allegedly illegal Dyker Heights massage parlor by officers at the 68th Precinct. Earlier in 2017, separate stings by both precincts led to nearly 50 arrests at 45 massage parlors operating illegally across Southwest Brooklyn.

Solemn Ceremony at Fort Hamilton Commemorates Lives Lost on Sept. 11 BY JOHN ALEXANDER BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE

I

t was a solemn ceremony at Fort Hamilton Army Base in Bay Ridge, in remembrance of the 2,977 lives lost during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. On Friday, Sept. 7, Fort Hamilton, the only active-duty military post in New York City, held a stately tribute upon the 17th anniversary of the attacks. The ceremony took place in front of the flagpole at the Army base community club. Trevor Loew, chief, Business Recreation Division at U.S. Army, served as master of ceremonies. He welcomed officers and elected officials, including state Sen. Marty Golden, Assemblymember Peter Abbate and City Councilmember Justin Brannan, to the commemoration. Following the presentation of the colors, Fort Hamilton Garrison Chaplain

The Joint Task Force Empire Shield Honor Guard presented the colors. Bruce Duty delivered the invocation. “On 9/11 we remember images we wish we had never seen, we remember words we wish we’d never heard, and God, we remember our own feelings of emptiness as our sense of security and our confidence was shaken,” Duty said. “We remember the heroism of those who lost their lives while saving others. We

remember all who suffered and died and their families and friends.” Fort Hamilton Army Garrison Commander Col. Andrew Zieseniss thanked all guests for attending. Zieseniss personalized the service by remembering heroic individuals who lost their lives on 9/11. “Many contend that time heals and this may be true,”

The Joint Task Force Empire Shield Honor Guard presents the colors. Zieseniss said. “However I can tell you that time does not allow us to forget. That’s why we stand here 17 years later.” He concluded by adding, “Seventeen years ago we all became New Yorkers.” The keynote speaker for the event was Lieutenant Col. Patricia JonesJohnson, commander of the New York Military Processing Station. She spoke about how the

events of 9/11 brought about a strong sense of unity across the nation. “We weren’t Je wish-American, we weren’t Irish-American, we weren’t Italian-American, we weren’t Asian-American, we weren’t African-American, we weren’t Arab-American, we were Americans,” JonesJohnson said. The w reath laying

ceremony included the parents of Kris Robert Hughes, a young man who lost his life during the attacks. Robert and Elaine Hughes attended the service in memory of their son. “Each year we attend an event,” Robert told this paper, “We might go to the trade center or we might go to the Nassau County 9/11 Memorial. Two years ago we came here and we were invited to come back again this year. We’re happy to do it and support the military.” “Obviously this day has tremendous meaning for a lot of us,” Zieseniss told this paper. “I’m glad that the Hughes family could join us.” The Joint Task Force Empire Shield Honor Guard presented a 21-gun salute which was followed by Taps by the West Point Quintet. The ceremony concluded with a benediction and “God Bless America” by the FDNY Bagpipers.

Bay Ridge 9/11 Survivor Recalls Her Escape from WTC BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he horrific events that unfolded on Sept. 11, 2001 are never far from Bay Ridge resident Vanessa Sierra’s mind as she goes about her daily life. “It feels like yesterday to me,” she told this newspaper on Monday, the day before the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. Sierra was a 24-year-old employee settling trades for a financial firm called Instinet and was working in her company’s offices on the 13th floor in the North Tower when the terrorist attack took place. She made it out of the building alive and eventually went on with her life. But she still thinks about that terrible day. “I don’t let it get in the way. But it’s there,” she said. Sierra, who is now 41 years old and the mother of a 10-year-old daughter, has been dogged by respiratory problems for the past 17 years that she said can be traced back to the fact that she was at the World Trade Center that day. She breathed in smoke from the fire and jet fumes from the plane and had to run for her life when the Twin Towers collapsed, releasing toxic dust into the air. Sierra is seeking health care coverage and compensation from the federal Victims Compensation Fund and has hired lawyer Michael Barasch to represent her. Her case is pending. The Victims Compensation Fund was established as part of the federal James Zadroga 9-11 Health and Compensation Act. For the past 17 years, Sierra has had to deal with PTSD, breathing problems and a persistent cough that are affecting her life. “Things are going on with my breathing and I never smoked cigarettes in my life,” she told this newspaper. She currently works as an executive assistant at another financial firm.

her respiratory problems and persistent cough. She also has sleep apnea. “For 16 years, I just lived with it. But last year, for peace of mind, I decided to get myself checked out,” she said. “I was hoping that everything would be fine. But everything is not fine.” Still, Sierra said she’s grateful to be alive. When the first hijacker struck the North Tower, the entire building shook, Sierra recalled. “The building shook so terribly, I dived under my desk,” she said. She was convinced she was going to die. “It felt like an earthquake or an avalanche. There were co-workers who were knocked out of their seats,” she said. “Smoke was pouring into the office. I felt like we were suffocating.” She started going down the stairs to try to escape. She got as far as the eighth floor when she hit a logjam of peoPhotos courtesy of Vanessa Sierra ple who were telling each other that there was no way out.

Beer, Burgers and Business Talk: Local Merchants in Roundtable Discussion with City Honchos BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

S

alty Dog ow ner G e orge Kabbez recently received a summons for utilizing air conditioning while keeping the door open because his restaurant, modeled after a firehouse, has an open front but no café seating outside. While an existing law protects eateries that have air conditioning on while serving outside as long as they have an outdoor café, Kabbez’s restaurant did not meet the criteria and received the violation. Frustrated, Kabbez brought the issue to the attention of Consumer Affairs (DCA) Commissioner Lorelei Salas and Department of Small Business Services (SBS) Commissioner Gregg Bishop during a local merchants roundtable meant to make it easier for local businesspeople to bring their complaints to the city. “The inspector said I need a café license,” Kabbez said. “I don’t need a café license; I just want to have my doors open. And for this rule to be changed without us being notified is not fair. To get an air conditioning summons after 21 years when it’s the livelihood and concept of my business is not right. And if you want to put us out of business, go right ahead. That’s what you are going to end up doing.” Salas said that DCA enforced the laws but didn’t pass them. She did promise to review Kabbez’s complaint. The roundtable took place last month at the Greenhouse Café in Bay Ridge. City Councilmember Justin Brannan, along with the Bay Ridge Fifth Avenue BID and the Merchants of Third Avenue invited Salas and Bishop to lead a conversation about the city’s business laws and how they impact merchants in the community. Robert Howe, president of the Merchants of Third Avenue, welcomed the

commissioners to what he called a very active community. “We have a group here consisting of restaurant owners, building owners, retailers, professional services, personal services and real estate professionals,” Howe said. Dennis Monier, owner of Tops Restaurant & Bar Supplies, complained that the violations that occur are too costly and that inspectors show up without

I don’t think it’s a law that the inspectors have to come at night.” Salas said that it was one of the best attended

roundtables she had ever participated in, calling it more of a town hall meeting. “We are trying hard to make sure we are responding to your concerns,” Salas said. She expressed her desire to let small business owners know they have a voice and told the group that, under the current administration, fines have been reduced by 50 percent. She also said that more has been invested in education for small businesses. She explained that the first time a business owner will receive a visit from a

Department of Consumer Affairs inspector is within the first three weeks of opening. Bishop said there had been a reduction in taxes for small businesses and discussed changes and updates to the system. “We’re looking at all the regulations and we’re trying to figure out what makes sense and what doesn’t make sense,” Bishop said. “It’s now 2018 and there are some regulations that were created in the ‘60s and ‘70s when we didn’t have technology, so do we need to still have these regulations in the books?” Brannan identified himself as a former small business owner. “Small businesses we always say are the backbone of our community. This is what keeps our neighborhood unique,” he stressed. “Without places like Ho’ Brah and Tops, we would just be any town U.S.A.” He concluded the discussion by adding, “I’ve been a politician for just eight months and before that I was just a guy from Bay Ridge.” Referring to the commissioners Brannan added, “These guys are my colleagues in government, but my job as a city councilperson is to be your representative. My job is not to carry their water. My job is to try to work with them to make it better for you.”

Alliance for Coney Island Hosts Back-to-School Fair BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

H

undreds of kids in Coney Island are beginning the school year with brand new backpacks that were donated to them, thanks to the Alliance for Coney Island Inc., which organized a back-to-school fair to get the youngsters off to a good start. The alliance sponsored a Back-to-School Fair on a five-block stretch of Mermaid Ave. on Sept. 8. Composed of businesses, non-profit groups and community leaders, the alliance is a public-private partnership that works to improve the quality of life for Coney Island residents. The alliance receives support from Borough President Eric Adams and the New York City Economic Development Corporation to operate its various community improvement programs. On Saturday, the alliance handed out 500 backpacks to children attending the fair with their parents. The kids got an added bonus. The backpacks were filled with school supplies. Councilmember Mark Treyger, a Democrat who represents Coney Island, helped organize the fair, along with the New York City Department of Transportation’s Weekend Walks program. Alliance Executive Director Alexandra Silversmith said the fair had

a double purpose: to help ensure that local children had what they needed for school, and to promote Mermaid Avenue as a great place to shop. “We are proud to partner with our local elected officials and local businesses to give back to the community and provide essential school supplies to students while also creating a celebratory day on Mermaid Avenue, the main commercial corridor for our residents and businesses,” Silversmith said in a statement. In addition to the distribution of backpacks and school supplies, the fair also featured performances by dance groups, musicians, Zumba lessons, salsa demonstrations, face painting, art displays, free health screenings and information on job readiness programs, education opportunities and afterschool programs, according to organizers.

Johnny Saavedra climbs the rock wall. “What better way to celebrate the start of a new school year than by bringing the community together for a day of free, fun activities, helpful resources and free school supply giveaways,” said Treyger, who serves as chairperson of the City Council’s Committee on Education. “In today’s difficult economic times, many parents struggle just to make ends meet. Today’s event will hopefully help to alleviate the high-cost of supplies and send children to school with some of the items they need for a successful year,” Democratic state Sen. Diane Savino said in a statement. Savino and another Coney Island lawmaker, U.S. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries,

helped organize the fair. “As students prepare to return to the classroom, parents are busy making sure their children have everything they need to succeed this school year. By putting everything from health screenings to backpack donations in one place, the community fair makes it easier for busy families to get their kids ready for school, all while putting a smile on everyone’s faces,” Jeffries stated. Eddie Mark, district manager of Community Board 13, was impressed with the fair, calling it a successful day. “Letting children be children before going back to school at a local community event is a wonderful thing,” he said in a statement.

Local Pol: Four Years Too Long to Air Condition City Schools BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@ BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

n April, 2017, de Blasio and the City Council announced a five-year, $28 million plan to install air conditioning in all classrooms by 2022. However, with some schools in New York being forced to implement early dismissal on the first day of classes due to high temperatures, suddenly the matter is ta king on added significance. The thermometer hit 90 degrees on Wednesday, Sept. 5, as students entered their new classrooms for the first time. Thursday wasn’t much better with the temperature rising to 85 degrees. The announced time frame does not sit well with state Sen. Marty Golden who believes the project should be completed much sooner.

Holy Angels Academy Students Tie Ribbons for 9/11 Victims BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

S

tudents at a Bay Ridge Catholic school are far too young to remember the Sept. 11 terrorist attack that took place 17 years ago, long before they were born. But they are aware of the significance of that tragic day in U.S. history, according to their principal, who led the youngsters in a commemoration of the event Tuesday morning, Sept. 11. “Sept. 11 is part of our curriculum. Our teachers talk to the children in each of our classes about what happened,” Rosemarie McGoldrick, principal of Holy Angels Catholic Academy, told this newspaper as she stood in the school’s courtyard and watched approvingly as youngsters tied red, white and blue ribbons to a fence. Next to the fence where the children were carefully affixing their ribbons stood a permanent memorial to Sept. 11, a small section of a steel beam from the Twin Towers. The beam was brought

to the courtyard several years ago by the Rev. James Devlin, who was the pastor of Our Lady of Angels Catholic Church at the time. Holy Angels Catholic Academy has close ties to the church, which is located next door to the school. Holy Angels Academy is located at 337 74th St. The presence of the steel beam serves as a daily reminder to the students and to Our Lady of Angels parishioners of the sacrifices made on Sept. 11, 2001. Seventeen parishioners of Our Lady of Angels were killed in the World Trade Center that day. A plaque listing the names of the local victims is attached to the fence behind the steel beam. T he roster includes five New York City firefighters: Eric Allen, Salvatore A student makes sure her Calabro, Dav id red ribbon is securely tied to DeRubbio, William the fence.

Teachers and students alike took part in the ribbon tying tribute on the anniversary of Sept. 11. Lake and James Riches, as well as a police officer, Moira Smith. The list also contains civilians who either worked in the World Trade Center or were there that day by chance. Barbara Habib, a senior vice president at Marsh & McLennan, worked in her company’s midtown Manhattan office but was in the firm’s office in the North Tower for a

conference when the building was struck by a hijacked jetliner. On Tuesday, Holy Angels Academy had a wreath placed in front of the steel beam. Russell Berry, the school’s social studies teacher, planned the ribbon-tying tribute and directed the children, who went up to the fence once class at a time. The memorial service started with the Rev. Jason

Espinal, the parochial vicar of Our Lady of Angels Church, leading the students and teachers in prayer. “We pray for the families of the victims. We pray for our nation,” he said. State Sen. Marty Golden, who was an altar boy at Our Lady of Angels Church when he was growing up in Bay Ridge, attended the ceremony and talked to the students about the importance of remembering Sept. 11 as the years go by and the date recedes into the distant past. At some point in the next few decades, Golden said, the students standing in the school courtyard will be the civic, business and political leaders, and will be bearing the responsibility of maintaining the country’s focus on Sept. 11. “It’s important that we never, ever forget. You are the future who will be leading this great nation. Never let these incidents happen again in our future,” Golden told the children. The ceremony ended with Espinal leading everyone in the singing of “God Bless America.”

EMPIRE SKATE: THE BIRTHPLACE OF ROLLER DISCO

Empire Skate: The Birthplace of Roller Disco brings the world of Empire to life, exploring its role as a cultural icon and a community hub. Artifacts, archival materials, video, and first-hand interviews, come together to share the stories of the people who skated at Empire during the 70s and 80s and will immerse visitors in the sights and sounds of the rink. Through the examined histories of and around Empire, connections between roller skating and larger narratives of race, class, and urbanization in America are uncovered. Beyond the roller disco movement, the exhibit traces the history of roller skating in the United States, highlighting the diversity of rinks around the country and the unique history of skating in New York City, which was home to over 20 rinks at its skating peak

QUIETER PLACES

Marshall LaCount’s Quieter Places paintings are a collective approach to places quieter than the city; quieter than a mind treading in traumas; quieter than political despondency. These Quieter Places are beyond certain borders. They are elsewhere, for they are not places, they are images. In this case, they are images constructed by aching hands and sore arms which have managed to pull away from other work, made in less quiet places. Plaster is shaped alongside acrylic paint, wallboard, spray paint. Graffiti and the constant buffing of graffiti get a nod. The works are playful: primary colors occupy measured spaces in largely white fields of textured plaster. This

MARY MATTINGLY: WHAT HAPPENS AFTER

BRIC has commissioned activist artist Mary Mattingly to create a major new work, one that examines the connection between mineral mining and the massive military industrial complex; and its profound effects on the environment, individuals, and communities. With an expanding military economy and slow erosion of public services, this exhibition poses the question of what happens when our public spaces become more militarized.  A creatively transformed 19,000 pound military cargo truck at the center of the exhibition acts to turn the conversation outward toward reimagining a public life together through the use of objects with violent histories. When: Tuesday-Sunday through November 11th, Tue-Sat 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sun 12 – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BRIC House (647 Fulton Street)

Sunset Park/Greenwood Heights/Bay Ridge

One of the most dramatic sights on Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue is the landmarked entrance to Green-Wood Cemetery. See next page. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

GREENWOOD HEIGHTS The neighborhood name Greenwood Heights is sometimes considered a real-estate stunt but the title was actually referred to in an 1846 Brooklyn Eagle article about a new ferry from Manhattan to the area. The article lists perks of the route including “facilities for communication with the groves of Greenwood Heights, and the lovely bay of Gowanus.” From the 19th century through the middle 20th century, the area’s economy was dominated by the working Brooklyn waterfront but the neighborhood is best known for its namesake, Green-Wood Cemetery.

The 478-acre space was commissioned in 1838 as a retreat where visitors could respect the dead and appreciate nature. Until Prospect Park was completed in 1873, the cemetery was mostly used by Brooklynites as a recreational space and as the harbor became increasingly popular, a daily stage coach shuttled visitors from the ferries to Green-Wood. Its success as a tourist attraction fueled a competition to design a public park for New York City. The winning design for “Greensward,” submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux formed the basis for Central Park. Buried among Green-Wood Cemetery’s half-million graves are William Marcy (Boss) Tweed, De Witt Clinton, Lola Montez, Peter Cooper, Henry Ward Beecher, Nathaniel Currier, James Ives, Margaret Sanger and Leonard Bernstein. —Norm Goldstein

Sunset Park/Greenwood Heights/Bay Ridge

Come Stroll Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge By Lore Croghan

INBrooklyn From convent to condos. Now that’s a study in contrasts. At the very end of Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue, a brand-new apartment building stands on a site where nuns lived. Even if you’re too young to remember there was a convent at 401 95th St. before the Arcadia Bay Ridge condos were constructed, you’ll see another big contrast when you walk down the avenue. The glass-clad condo building is right across the street from St. Patrick’s, a yellow-brick 1920s church with a bell tower and a rose window. The Bay Ridge span of Fifth Avenue is a great place for a stroll. The logical way to take this walk is by starting at the car dealerships on the corner of 65th Street and heading south. Along the way, there’s a fascinating mix of Middle-Eastern restaurants and shops, businesses with longevity like Mike’s Donuts and the cutest canine mural ever.

Before we show you interesting sights on our north-to-south Bay Ridge trek, we first want to spotlight the avenue’s very last block, where seven-story condo building 401 95th St. is located. Condo sponsor J&J Property & Management Group LLC bought the former convent site from St. Patrick’s for $3 million in 2009, city Finance Department records show. According to a posting on website We3.com, in February the state Attorney General accepted a condo offering plan for Arcadia Bay Ridge filed by attorney Jodi B. Zimmerman of Ficara & Associates PC. There are 22 residential units, one commercial unit and 13 parking spaces. The Attorney General’s real estate finance database says the expected total sellout price is $23.637 million. The sponsor’s principals are Tak Kwong Cheung, Hing Ying Cheung, Tin Tak Cheng and Po Yung Cheng. When we checked StreetEasy.com’s posting about Arcadia Bay Ridge after our stroll, asking prices for available condos ranged from $918,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment to $525,000 for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit.

A Pre-Civil War Parish for Catholic Soldiers

BAY RIDGE Straddled by the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway and boosted over New York harbor, Bay Ridge’s history highlights how developments in transportation have reshaped Brooklyn as a whole. The Dutch West Indian Company bought the land that is now Bay Ridge from the Nyack Indians in 1652. Named Yellow Hook or Yellow Ridge for the color of the clay found there, the community pushed to rename it Bay Ridge after the yellow-fever epidemic of 1848 and1849 tainted its original name. Wealthy businessmen and industrialists visited the area as a summer retreat, building mansions on the Bay Ridge bluffs that can still be seen today. The neighborhood was transformed after power broker Robert Moses pushed construction of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, in opposition to ridge residents, 8,000 of whom were displaced for construction. The bridge has since become a neighborhood icon for the widely diverse population. See page 18INB. —Norm Goldstein

Because of the way Bay Ridge’s street grid is laid out, Fourth and Fifth avenues form a V at 95th Street and Fifth Avenue disappears. Fourth Avenue continues south to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Because of this set-up, the Roman Catholic Church of St. Patrick has a Fourth Avenue address although it’s directly across 95th Street from Arcadia Bay Ridge on Fifth Avenue. St. Patrick’s has a storied history. It was first established as a mission in the 1840s. Back then, St. Patrick’s served as the parish for Catholic soldiers at Fort Hamilton.

The church building that preceded the present-day one was built in the early 1850s. Fort Hamilton soldiers’ donations of one dollar per week helped to pay for its construction.

A Remedy for Bald Tires and a Billiard Hall

Now let’s circle back to the northern end of Bay Ridge and take this stroll. The first spot that will catch your eye is 67 Street Tire Shop, which is in a storefront at 6702 Fifth Ave. There’s always a display of tires outside on the sidewalk.

Eye on FIFTH

AVENUE

Sunset Park/Greenwood Heights/Bay Ridge

ABOVE: At day’s end, folks head to hilltop Sunset Park for some fresh air. By Lore Croghan

INBrooklyn The most dazzling sight on Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights and Sunset Park is a graveyard’s gateway. This isn’t just any graveyard. It’s Green-Wood Cemetery, which has been a major visitor magnet pretty much since its 1838 founding. In the 19th century, New Yorkers took carriage rides, picnicked and partied in the hilly 478-acre burial ground. Though the setting around it has become urban, it still looks bucolic today. The brownstone gates — which the city landmarked in 1966 — are located at Green-Wood’s main entrance on Fifth Avenue at 25th Street in Greenwood Heights.

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

john designed these Gothic Revival-style arches in 1861. You’ll see them as you head south along Fifth Avenue, which is lined with mixed-use rowhouses a century old or more. Mingled in among them are financial institutions, religious buildings — and a popular hilltop recreation area that, like the neighborhood, is named Sunset Park. The park extends along Fifth Avenue from 41st to 44th streets.

The Jackie Gleason Depot

How Sweet It Is! Eleven blocks away from Green-Wood Cemetery’s gates, the first building you’ll find in Sunset Park is the Jackie Gleason Depot. It’s a 919,000-square-foot NYC Transit System building. In 1988, the MTA named it after the late comedian. He played Brooklyn bus driver Ralph Kramden in the 1950s CBSTV series “The Honeymooners.” The depot is located at 847 Architects Richard Upjohn and his son Richard Michell Up- Fifth Ave. on the corner of 36th Street. At 889 Fifth Ave. on the northeast corner of 39th Street, a curved turret is a nice touch. The building houses the Sunset Park Diner. One of Sunset Park’s grandest Fifth Avenue buildings is the former Ah, the view.

the fertile soil and the waterways to their liking, acquired the land from the Canarsies and began farming along the waterfront. It became more of an urban community after Brooklyn was made a city in 1834 and developed further with the building of horse car lines and factories in the area. The neighborhood grew dramatically after Irving T. Bush bought oceanfront property and built Bush Terminal in 1895, a complex of piers, warehouses and factory lofts that created Brooklyn as a major port for shipping and made Sunset Park into a busy waterfront area. Later, the Brooklyn Army Terminal was constructed (1919) as a military ocean supply depot that operated through World War II. But the building of the Gowanus Expressway, completed in 1941, virtually cut the neighborhood off from the waterfront and workers began leaving, changing the nature of Sunset Park once again. Indeed, Sunset Park is a prime example of how Brooklyn neighborhoods change ethnically as well as geographically. It was settled by the Irish escaping the potato famine at home around 1845. Then Scandinavians settled in sections that became known as Finntown and Little Norway. Hispanics came to the neighborhood too. And now it is primarily known as the home of Brooklyn’s Chinatown. The neighborhood has Greenwood Heights to its north, Borough Park on the east, Bay Ridge to the south, and the Upper New York Bay to the west. —Norm Goldstein

The Immigrants’ Basilica Another dramatic Sunset Park property is 5424 Fifth Ave., which houses a clothing store called George Michael Suit Outlet. It’s at the intersection of 55th Street. As corner buildings with turrets go, this one’s especially charming. It’s topped by a pointy roof shaped like a witch’s hat. According to a Historic Districts Council posting, J.H. Nadigan designed the Queen Anne-style brick building, which was constructed in 1897. On the south end of Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park, there’s another dazzling sight — the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The granite Romanesque Revival church is located at 526 59th St. The property extends along Fifth Avenue to the corner of 60th Street. The basilica’s construction began in 1907. It was designed by Swissborn Franz Joseph Untersee, who settled in the Boston area and specialized in ecclesiastic architecture.

Eye on FIFTH Come Stroll Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge Continued from page 16INB When we’re not distracted by bakeries like Jean Danet at 7526 Fifth Ave. or Leske’s at 7612 Fifth Ave., there’s an array of oldfashioned, mixed-use buildings to see.

AVENUE

• A handsome building at 6752 Fifth Ave. on the corner of 68th Street was sold for $2 million last November, Finance Department records show. • There’s a “For Sale” sign on a distinctive building on the corner of Ovington Avenue whose address is 6929 Fifth Ave. The asking price for the oldfashioned house with a groundfloor cafe and two recently gut-renovated apartments is $3.2 million, a posting by Ben Bay Realty listing agent Lucy

BAY RIDGE: HOW IT GOT ITS NAME By Norm Goldstein 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 the Brooklyn 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 middleclass 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.

Badwan says. According to Finance Department records, when 6929 Fifth Ave. last changed hands in 2016, the price paid for it was $2.6 million. • Right next door, another distinctive building is also for sale. The asking price is $7.5 million for Hall of Fame Billiards at 505 Ovington Ave., a marketing flyer posted by CPEX Real Estate’s Timothy King and Dimitri Venekas says. The building is 19,000 square feet in size and there are about 8,000 square feet of air rights.

And They Called It Puppy Love

Our favorite commercial signage in Bay Ridge says “Oasis Vision Center” and is painted, along with evocative palm trees, on the side of the building at 7411 Fifth Ave. You can see the classic signage if you stand on the corner of Bay Ridge Parkway and turn and face north. That old Paul Anka song, “Puppy Love,” will come into your head when you get to 91st Street. As you walk south on the west side of Fifth Avenue, you’ll come face to face with larger-than-life canines on a mural. It’s painted on the side wall of Fifth Avenue Veterinary Hospital, whose address is 9102 Fifth Ave.

ABOVE: The exterior of 5424 Fifth Ave. isn’t in perfect shape but it’s such a beautiful building.

SUNSET PARK: HOW IT GOT ITS NAME Dutch settlers acquired portions of Sunset Park from the Canarsee Indians in the 1640s and began farming along the waterfront. Irish immigrants became the first wave of new settlers to the area in the 1840s when they were fleeing the potato famine. They were joined by Polish, Norwegian and Finnish immigrants in the late 1800s when nearly all of the neighborhood’s residential construction occurred. Sunset Park was changed forever when Irving T. Bush purchased oceanfront property and opened Bush Terminal, nicknamed “Bush’s Folly” because few thought it could compete with Manhattan’s ports. Bush’s initial warehouse, single pier, tugboat and old railroad engine paved the way for what became the largely successful 200-acre complex of piers, warehouses, display rooms and factory lofts. Italian dock workers settled in the area for the ample work from the terminal that expanded in 1902. The neighborhood eventually declined by the 1930s and into the 1940s though, when the Third Avenue elevated line halted during

the Depression and the Gowanus Expressway split the area’s industrial section from its residential. After World War II, many older residents moved to the suburbs and their homes were filled with Puerto Rican immigrants eager to work but corruption in the Federal Housing Administration and real-estate and banking industries led to abandonment of homes. In addition, much of the maritime industry began moving to New Jersey at the time. Bush Terminal was renamed Industry City in the 1960s in a revitalization attempt. Then in 1969, the Lutheran Medical Center purchased an abandoned factory from the city for one dollar and spent more than $70 million renovating the property for a center that helped local nonprofit organizations renovate 500 housing units. Sunset Park’s rebound was evident in the 1980s and 1990s when more immigrants from Latin America and Asia moved into the neighborhood. Commercial revival increased when the Brooklyn Army Terminal, which was deactivated in the 1970s, was reopened in 1987 for light industry and bodegas, restaurants and retail stores opened up along the neighborhood blocks. —Norm Goldstein

Former FDNY Chief John Nasta Celebrates 100th Birthday BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

O

ne day after the FDNY mourned the loss of its fallen brothers during the 9/11 attacks, members had a reason to celebrate. One of their own, former FDNY Chief John Nasta, celebrated his 100th birthday on Wednesday, Sept. 12 at Sofia Restaurant in Bay Ridge, surrounded by family, friends and members of the FDNY. The smiling Brooklynborn-and-raised centenarian spent 34 years with the FDNY and retired at the rank of battalion chief of FDNY Battalion 40 at Fourth Avenue and 51st Street in Brooklyn. At the time, he was the longest serving fire officer in FDNY history. Nasta started his career with the FDNY in 1942, but after six months he was called to serve in the Navy during World War II. Because he had some training in the Fire Department, he was put in charge of training thousands of Navy recruits in fire safety while stationed in San Diego, before being

Nasta’s beloved wife Alice died in 2005. But with the support of his sister Gloria, nieces, nephews and close friends, he still maintains

an active lifestyle. “He goes out to the restaurant every day,” close friend Patricia McLaughlin Hite told this paper. “His normal

meal is linguini and clam sauce and he loves salmon. And he always has a glass of red wine. He also loves his Italian cheesecake, espresso

coffee and once a week he’ll always have his favorite hamburger.” Additionally, Hite said that Nasta enjoys easy-listening and classical music and reads The New York Times every day. And it appears that longevity runs in the family. His sister Gloria Ward, who was by his side to celebrate his birthday, is 91 years young. After a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday,” Nasta received a lifetime achievement recognition award from the FDNY commissioner’s office. Paul Mannix of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association (UFOA), presented Nasta with a plaque on behalf of the UFOA. “We’re very happy that after the sad and solemn ceremonies yesterday we are able to celebrate a life today, especially a life that has reached 100 years,” Mannix said. “Not only is he a member of the FDNY but he is a member of the greatest generation.” When asked what he attributed his own longevity to, Nasta looked up, smiled and held up his glass of red wine.

Bishop Provenzano of Episcopal Diocese Dedicates Newly Built St. Stephen-St. Martin Church New Building is Designed For Many Functions And to be a Beacon for The Neighborhood By Francesca Norsen Tate, Religion Editor INBrooklyn

Joy and fanfare filled the streets of Bedford-Stuyvesant on Saturday and the rain held off until after the procession as the congregation of St. Stephen-St. Martin Episcopal Church in Bedford-Stuyvesant, complete with marching band, officially moved from another congregation hosting them to their own brandnew home. Varick A.M.E. Zion Church on Quincy Street had hosted the St. Stephen-St. Martin parish for several years while its church was being constructed. The old St. Stephen’s Church had stood at the corner of Patchen and Jefferson avenues for 147 years before it was demolished, in a condition beyond repair. The procession headed from Quincy Street to the new site, about six blocks away. Leading them was the Elite Marching Band of Queens. The new church, which is the brainchild of architect Shaneekua Henry and her husband Andrew, is described as “a beacon of the message of a resurrected church who meets us at all the intersections of our lives,” according to a brochure. It is also the first Episcopal church building to be constructed during the bishopric of the Rt. Rev. Lawrence Provenzano, bishop of the Diocese of Long Island. While other women clergy were pioneers in becoming the first Episcopal clergy and bishops, Henry is the first African-American woman to design a church in the diocese. The project was developed in partnership with Pericles Notias of Notias Construction of Flushing, N.Y. Henry is a partner in the African-American owned SLM Architecture. The Rev. Canon Audley Donaldson, rector of St. Stephen-St. Martin Church, said, “It is significant that parishioners decided to rebuild the church in Bedford-Stuyvesant, where it has served as a beacon of hope, and succeeded in rebuilding during a difficult economic climate. It is a remarkable achievement by the entire parish.” During the consecration service, Donaldson publicly thanked and honored several staff and parishioners. “This historic service will celebrate this

Tate achievement and the commitment to ministry that the St. Stephen and St. Martin’s community has to the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. Their dedication serves as an inspiration to us all as we anticipate a bright future in this exciting and demographically diverse community,” said Provenzano. The new St. Stephen and St. Martin’s Episcopal Church building, located at 789 Jefferson Ave., has a modern theatrical lighting and sound system to enhance the worship experience. A columbarium and garden and a cry room were built into the structure. The purpose of a cry room is a safe-space for worshipers who may find themselves weeping during the liturgy. In many churches, tears are an integral part of healing and restoration. The entire church is “built and consecrated as a multi-functional, multi-cultural, multi-generational sacred space.” Members of the parish are charged to “be in tune with what ails and troubles those on the outside.” The parish’s mission is to minister to the wider community as well.

Coalition of Synagogues Sponsors Annual Intro to Judaism Course

Clergy from around the Episcopal diocese and members of the Lions Club join the procession from Varick A.M.E. Zion Church, which has hosted the congregation during the construction of its new building. The procession headed up Patchen Avenue to Jefferson Avenue, the site of the new church.

Each year, the synagogues around Brooklyn participate in the Introduction to Judaism Course taught by Rabbi Sue Oren. The 20-session course is designed as an exploration for curious adults to discover Judaism from an adult perspective, to become more confident parents of Jewish children and to explore longstanding questions they haven’t yet asked. NightShul at East Midwood Jewish Center will incorporate the Introduction to Judaism course into its regular seasonal offerings. A weekly class is offered in two sections from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. The course will also be offered on Sun-

days at the Park Slope Jewish Center. The first session for all participants will take place at East Midwood Jewish Center on Wednesday, Oct. 10. Advance registration is required. For more information, registration and course fee contact Oren at introclass@earthlink.net or 917-539-1334. Course co-sponsors include Beloved, Brooklyn Heights Synagogue, B’ShERT (Beth Shalom v’Emeth Reform Temple), Congregation Mount Sinai, East Midwood Jewish Center, Flatbush Jewish Center, Kane Street Synagogue, Kolot Chayeinu/ Voices of Our Lives, Park Slope Jewish Center and Union Temple.

streetcar is necessary,” Menchaca added. “We know private property owners and other major waterfront developments in North Brooklyn will benefit from the streetcar. The question is whether the public will, or if it will just displace lots of people and businesses who had no need of the streetcar to begin with.” Some Sunset Park residents are glad that their neighborhood is being left out. “I believe it is not because of public response, although that would be nice to believe,” said Tony Giordano, the founder of Sunset Parker Facebook page. “I think it was doomed from the start for two technical reasons - the first the drawbridge over the Gowanus. I think this was the fatal flaw. The second was the narrowing of the commuter vehicle route along Third Avenue [that would have resulted from the streetcar being routed along the strip].

Big ups to POWWA coalition members and to our organizers that are out when it’s hot, when it cold, when it’s raining.” POWWA is the Protect Our Working Waterfront Alliance. The city hopes to generate $30 billion in economic impact from the project, with around $1.4 billion in value capture (which Wikipedia defines as “public financing that recovers some or all of the value that public infrastructure generates for private landowners”) to help finance its construction.

This Week in History ON SEPT. 12, 1947, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “St. Louis, Sept. 12 (U.P.) – The Sporting News, national baseball weekly, today named Jackie Robinson, Negro first baseman of the Brooklyn Dodgers, as its choice for ‘Rookie of the Year.’ Publisher J.G. Taylor Spink, author of the story, Jackie Robinson emphasized that Robinson’s Photos courtesy of Wikimedia Commons selection was based solely on his ability as a hitter, runner, fielder and team man. ‘The sociological experiment that Robinson represented,’ Spink wrote, ‘the trail-blazing that he did, the barriers he broke down, do not enter into the decision … Jackie Robinson has done it all in his first year as a major leaguer. What more could anyone ask?”  ON SEPT. 12, 1953, the Eagle reported, “Newport, R.I., Sept. 12 (U.P.) – Senator John F. Kennedy (D., Mass.), once one of the nation’s most eligible bachelors, takes an heiress as his bride here today. Kennedy, son of former Ambassador to Great Britain Joseph P. Kennedy, will John and Jackie Kennedy on wed Jacqueline Lee Bou- their wedding day. Photos courtesy of Wikimedia Commons vier on Newport at 11 a.m. in St. Mary’s Catholic Church. Archbishop Richard J. Cushing of Boston will officiate at the wedding, which caps the social season in this fashionable summer resort. Miss Bouvier, a descendant of prominent Washington and New York banking families, met the tousle-haired Kennedy while working as an inquiring reporter for the Washington-Times Herald. She is 24 and he is 36. Twenty-six attendants will participate in the wedding ceremony, which will be followed by a reception at Miss Bouvier’s Hammersmith Farm home, where she was presented to society in August, 1947.” 

ON SEPT. 13, 1953, the Eagle reported, “Brooklynites took with calm joy last night the second straight winning of the National League pennant by the Dodgers. Although eyes and ears were ‘glued’ to television or radio throughout the borough until the ball plopped into Gil Hodges’ mitt at first base for the final putout of the 5-to-2 victory over the Braves at Milwaukee, Dodger fans settled for some whoops and hugs … Meanwhile, Borough President [John] Cashmore, in a wire to Walter F. O’Malley, the Dodger prexy, at Milwaukee Stadium, outlined plans for a gigantic ‘Brooklyn Dodger Day,” Sept. 22, just before the season’s home windup game at Ebbets Field with the Pittsburgh Pirates. There will be a big procession from Ebbets Field to Borough Hall, where the red welcome carpet will be rolled out.”

Illustration from the Brooklyn Eagle, Sept. 14, 1910

ON SEPT. 14, 1901, the Eagle reported, “Buffalo, N.Y., September 14 – President [William] McKinley died at 15 minutes after 2 o’clock this morning … The last hours of the dying President were deeply touching. In his moments of consciousness he realized his approaching end … While the cabinet officers were in the room, the President was unconscious and thought to be dying. He was rallied to consciousness shortly thereafter and almost the first word was a request that his wife be brought to his side … The parting between this devoted pair was an unwitnessed tragedy. The doctors slipped back into the shadows of the darkened room and hid their faces. Even they, used as they are to distressing scenes, could not keep back the tears. They only saw the President’s face brightening with a smile as he fully clasped his wife’s hand.”  ON SEPT. 14, 1948, the Eagle reported, “Portland, Me., Sept. 14 (U.P.) – Representative Margaret Chase Smith’s smashing majority in winning the first full Senate term ever voted a woman Republican was hailed by G.O.P. leader today as the forerunner of a Dewey-Warren landslide in November. The 49-year-old Mrs. Smith, a one-time telephone operator serving her fifth term in Congress, easily defeated Dr. Adrian H. Margaret Chase Smith Scolten, Democrat, of Portland, yesterday in the nation’s first state election of this presidential year … Mrs. Smith received personal congratulations from Gov. Thomas E. Dewey of New York in a telephone conversation at her Skowhegan home.” 

t the September monthly meeting of the Society of Old Brooklynites, Daniel Cardona, the founder and artistic director of the Martha Cardona Opera Company, was the guest speaker. After his comprehensive narrative, dubbed “It’s All About Opera,” he introduced international opera baritone Daniel Sutin and his piano accompanist Christine Talbot for a well-received performance. Sutin has sung in major opera companies overseas and across the country, including several stints with the Metropolitan Opera Company. The meeting and musical presentation, which were held at Brooklyn Borough Hall, were open to society members and the public free of charge. *** Meet the “Mayor of Fort Hamilton.” We are referring to affable Army veteran Tom Trombone. Trombone enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1948 and is a Korean War veteran. After his discharge, he embarked on a 38-year career as a chemical engineer. He is a parishioner of St. Ephrem’s Church in Dyker Heights and a member of the patriotic arm of the Knights of Columbus. Trombone continues to support his fellow veterans

and the men and women in uniform as the chaplain for Korean War Veterans Chapter 171, past commander of the Coffey-Wilson American Legion Post No, 688, command sergeant major for the Veteran Corps of Artillery, and a member of the United Military Veterans of Kings County.

Remembering 9/11, 17 Years Later

I

t may be hard to believe, but 17 years have passed since terrorists hijacked commercial jetliners and flew them into the Twin Towers, in an unprecedented attack on the United States homeland, and changing the way that Americans in general – and New Yorkers in particular – view the world. For those of us who lived through the attack, and even more so for those who lost loved ones and colleagues at Ground Zero, memories of the day are still vivid — a shifting montage of images of devastation, and unparalleled heroics by those who rushed in to save the thousands of strangers trapped in the World Trade Center, all overshadowed by the plumes of smoke and clouds of ash rising from the ruins of structures that had previously dominated the city skyline. In southern Brooklyn, the impact of the attacks was particularly profound. With many members of the uniformed services and many financial sector employees who worked in lower Manhattan among area residents, and a clear view of the horrific events unfolding just across the water, neighborhoods such as Bay Ridge, Sunset Park and Bensonhurst were deeply shaken . The ensuing years have brought further challenges. The health of

The scene at Ground Zero in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attack. many of those who labored at Ground Zero looking for survivors and then for the remains of those who perished has suffered because of their heroics. Every week, it seems, brings news of new deaths among those who were exposed to the toxic fumes; according to one attorney who represents 9/11 victims and survivors, every 2.7 days, a member of the 9/11 community dies prematurely. And those who lost a son, a daughter, a husband, a wife, a father, a mother or a friend on that awful day have had to reinvent their lives, paying tribute always to those who died but learning, somehow, to go on

living, if not for themselves then for those they lost. As New Yorkers, as citizens of the world, we have also had to learn how to live in a post-9/11 world – to be wary, but not overly suspicious; to trust, but not too much; to reach out not only to those who are familiar, but to those who are different, in our own city and around the globe. To say we will never forget does not begin to encompass the complexity of the day and its aftermath. For all those who never came home from work that sunny Tuesday, for all those who emerged scarred from the cataclysm, we will always remember.

Focus on Bay Ridge

Golden Was There on 9/11

By Charles F. Otey

Foes Use Snarky Politics, Smears, Innuendo and Lies To Assail Sen. Marty Golden Is His Attack Dog a Tool of Someone On the Ballot in November Election? The ugly hand of dirty politics reached into our schoolyards this past week when a bellicose bunch of anti-Marty Golden campaigners dropped off literature that had no place in public discourse — especially in the places our children regard as safe havens to learn, play and socialize. Yet that’s what happened when thousands of pieces of hate mail were dumped in a number of school locations, slandering the state senator, who previously served as councilmember and has a remarkable record when it comes to educating and protecting our children.

‘Li’l Abner’ Cartoonist Al Capp Saw Screamers as ‘SWINE’ Describing the lies foisted on young children in some detail in this column would give them credence and visibility. What’s important to know is that the purveyors lied bigtime, even accusing Golden of “siding with pedophiles” and taking actions that would deprive students of much-needed funding for vital programs. Though his detractors claim their goal is to “Fight Back Bay Ridge,” their vicious sniping at a man who was an established civic and business leader for years before he even considered public office shows they are every bit as self-righteous as some protesters of the 1960s - the once notorious “SWINE” created by the late “Li’l Abner” cartoonist Al Capp (Students Wildly Indignant (About) Nearly Everything).

Golden Takes High Road, Answers Fiction with Facts “Sen. Golden has always advocated and

voted for billions of dollars in increased funding for schools,” a spokesman said. “In fact, he has supported and voted for the largest increase in school funding in the history of the state. “Sen. Golden has never voted against speed cameras,” the spokesman continued. “In fact, he voted to create the original program and is a sponsor of the bill to renew the current program with a significant increase in the number of cameras ... and [publicly] calling upon Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan and Gov. Andrew Cuomo to reconvene the legislature for purposes of passing this bill.” The spokesman also noted that the senator has obtained and delivered funding “to dozens of schools in his district for scores of improvements, such as new libraries, SMART boards and computers.” Regarding proposed legislation regarding sexual abuse, the Golden spokesman added that “there are many legislative actions he can and will support to deal with sexual abuse issues … he regularly meets with victims groups, religious leaders, does media interviews and [also] addresses these issues in public forums.”

Unlike some political snipers, state Sen Marty Golden has a history of civic service. After 9/11 he directed massive food and supply convoys to aid the first responders at Ground Zero. Golden didn’t parachute in from some other community; he grew up in Bay Ridge, was an outstanding member of the NYPD, played a major role in the rejuvenation of Fifth Avenue and, while others issued press releases, he organized hundreds of volunteers who came to his Third Avenue office to pick up supplies and drive them to Lower Manhattan.

The Fight Back Bay Ridge folks seem to be a political action committee and, of course, such PACS aren’t permitted to act in concert with actual political candidates for fear of losing their tax-exempt status and other privileges. If the winner — either Gounardes or Barkan — joins with Fight Back Bay Ridge in

any official way, he will be adopting a group that represents the snarky worst of American politics and thereby giving his blessing to the propaganda invasion of our children’s schoolyards. Observers will be looking closely at any untoward cooperation between Fight Back Bay Ridge and the ultimate winner of the Sept. 13 Democratic primary.

‘Fight Back Bay Ridge’ A Cover for Opponents? The Fight Back Bay Ridge folks deny having any official political party affiliation. They say they are not attacking Sen. Golden as part of a scheme to support whoever wins the Democratic senatorial nomination — as of this writing, the battle between Andrew Gounardes and Ross Barkan proceeded with both spending tens of thousands of dol-

Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe reports that the 25th Annual Pioneers Reception, set for Oct. 22 at the Bay Ridge Manor, will cite “an impressive list of new Civic Award winners and Third Avenue Pioneers while honoring Pioneers of past years and leaders from many segments of Greater Bay Ridge life.”

Howe noted that Pioneer Committee Co-Chair Lori Pedone has released the names of several who will be specifically designated silver anniversary Pioneers and they include Acting Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President Rick Russo, civilian military leader Ray Aalbue and Fifth Avenue business leader Louis Peters.

I

n 2001, at the request of then-Councilmember Marty Golden (whom I now serve as Senate chief of staff), I wrote a 9/11 memorial statement that appeared on the back of thousands of memorial cards that Marty printed and distributed. Each year at this time, I republish the words which take me back to the time and events. “Our hearts are heavy with sorrow for our loss of so many innocent lives due to the tragic events of September 11, 2001. “We will never forget the supreme dedication of our Fire, Police and Emergency Services professionals. Their courageous efforts saved countless lives. Heroes all, many made the

9/11 ultimate sacrifice. “We salute the efforts of our volunteers who selflessly gave their time and energy during the most harrowing hours our city has ever faced. “Our spirit remains unbroken. Our strength renewed. United we will rebuild and move forward.” Remember the heroes of 9/11. Many first responders and citizens continue to suffer and die from illnesses that came out of that horrible day and the weeks that followed. As we pray for all the lost souls on September 11, please remember these individuals too. *** You can disagree with the president. You can work for the president and

Brannan Secures Unprecedented Sanitation Funding for District 43, Increased Service Already on its Way BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

here’s no reason to trash talk Councilmember Justin Brannan when it comes to sanitation. The local pol—who, in the Council’s 2019 budget secured more money towards keeping Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst clean than any of his former predecessors—met with New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) Commissioner Kathryn Garcia on Thursday, August 23 to announce the increase in sanitation services in District 43. Among the additions locals can expect, Brannan said, is two-day-a-week curb sweeping service, an additional one-day-aweek overnight street sweeper, new sevenday-a-week overnight basket pick-ups along all major commercial corridors and five-daya-week daytime pickups along those same commercial strips. The latter, he said, will go a long way towards reducing the overflowing cans and a recent spike in household dumping. “My commitment to making this district the cleanest in the city is absolutely real,” said Brannan, who also stressed that the sanitation services can only work if done alongside help from the community. “It’s really got to be a partnership with residents and neighbors doing their share as well. The money that we’re allocating today, I think is

going to go a long way. That said, you’re not going to snap your fingers and see immaculate streets – but we are going to get there.” Garcia, who joined Brannan Thursday outside of his district office, 8018 Fifth Avenue, agreed, adding that the partnership between DSNY and the City Council has been “really wonderful.” Working with specific elected officials, she said, helps the agency pinpoint which services communities actually need. “I have a sign in my office that says there’s no Democratic or Republican way to clean the streets,” Brannan said, “and it’s really something that I live by. You’ve just gotta get it done.”

McKinley Hosts Annual Commemoration of September 11 Attacks BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

T

eaching youth about a turning point in American history. For the fourth consecutive year, I.S. 259 William McKinley, 7301 Fort Hamilton Parkway, hosted a day to educate students about the terrorist attacks that occurred in New York City on September 11, 2001. The event, held this year on Wednesday, September 12, featured guest Sharyn Yansko, a 9/11 Memorial Museum docent, to discuss 9/11 with the help of slideshows that featured images and video of the World Trade Center. “This is my second year doing this. I’ve been working at the museum ever since it opened as a docent,” said Yansko. “It’s very meaningful to me, bringing it to kids. It was really enjoyable last year because the kids were interested.It reinforces for me how incredibly important it is to study history and how you’ve got to get people excited about the idea of studying it so that they realize it’s not just stuff that happened before. It changes us.” Jessica Amato, an English teacher at the school and organizer of the event,

discussed the importance of the lesson. “This is the fourth year that the museum has come to us free of charge to share this message that even in the grimmest of moments, there’s a shred of hope that we have,” she said. “My students take a lot out of it. They walk away with a better understanding of what happens historically and the idea that even in this tragic event, there are some hopeful moments. “Last week I did an overview and asked who knew about the events,” Amato continued. “None of them was born before 9/11. This is

of what happened. It’s good to give them information in

a way that is appropriate and manageable.” Following the lesson, student Mostafa Rezk took the seventh grade class on a tour of the school’s elaborate mural depicting the events on the day and featuring paintings of firefighters, police, victims and artifacts donated to the school, such as an American flag flown over the World Trade Center, and steel, glass and a cross found at

Ground Zero. During the conference, Yansko told the story of Welles Crowther, a man who worked in the south tower on the 104th floor and who used a red bandanna his father gave him at a young age to cover his face from the smoke in the building, enabling him to save several lives before he died. “That his mother was able to find a kind of closure, thanks to the fact that her

son helped save people in his last moments, was important,” Amato said. “I think it’s a really great message because a lot of times the students hear a lot of negativity. We need to know that there as moments in our lives, especially as middle school students, that things can be negative but there is always a glimmer of hope that we can hold onto so that we can move forward.”

CUOMO SIGNS LEGISLATION TO DELIVER BENEFITS FOR 9/11 VOLUNTEERS AND WORKERS

G

overnor Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday, Sept. 11 that legislation has been signed to extend the period for workers and volunteers to file a Notice of Participation for lost wage and medical benefits as a result of their involvement in the recovery and clean-up operations following the events of 9/11.  “We will never forget the selfless heroes who did not make it home that day, and we owe first responders and those who aided in the recovery effort an eternal debt of gratitude,” Cuomo said. “This bill rightly and fairly provides 9/11’s brave recovery workers and volunteers the time they need to receive the health benefits and compensation they deserve.” This bill extends the deadline to file until September 11, 2022. The extension will allow more individuals additional time to receive workers’ compensation, disability and accidental death benefits as a result of their participation in the World Trade Center rescue, recovery and clean-up operations. The bill was sponsored by state Sen. Marty Golden. “Additionally, this legislation allows for those who had their applications denied to have that application reconsidered,” Golden said. “Our first responder heroes of 9/11 deserve assistance in getting every benefit to which they are entitled.”–JA

BROOKLYN DA ANNOUNCES NEW PROGRAM TO ERASE MISDEMEANOR MARIJUANA CONVICTIONS

B

rooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez has announced that his office will offer those with a low-level conviction for marijuana possession the opportunity to erase that criminal record completely in the first initiative of its kind in New York State. Under this program, anyone convicted of low-level marijuana possession will be eligible to file a motion asking to vacate that conviction and dismiss the underlying charge. The district attorney’s office will consent to that motion. Those eligible will not have to appear in court when a judge decides to vacate their past convictions on a later date. This program follows Gonzalez’s decision to stop prosecuting all but the most egregious cases involving possession and smoking of small amounts of marijuana. “As we move away from criminalizing low-level possession and use of

DONOVAN LIKES SALT WITH HIS TAX DEDUCTION

U

.S. Rep. Dan Donovan is pushing for more SALT in New Yorkers’ tax diets. The Republican congressmember is part of a group of House members urging Speaker Paul Ryan and U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-Texas), chairperson of the Ways and Means Committee, to stop an effort to make a $10,000 limit for state and local tax (SALT) deductions permanent. The $10,000 cap was written into the Trump tax cut passed last year. A vote on the second phase of tax cuts is set to take place later this month and Donovan is concerned that the SALT deduction cap will become permanent. Donovan is threatening to vote against the new bill.   “The permanent cap on SALT will disproportionately affect the states of New York and New Jersey. As you know New York and New Jersey are donor states, meaning we receive less than what we give the federal government in taxes. While some of the most dependent states can receive twice in return for every dollar they send to the U.S. Treasury, states like New York and New Jersey receive only a fraction of the tax dollars sent to Treasury. This disproportionate spending of federal tax dollars will only be augmented if the cap on the deduction for state and local taxes is extended permanently,” Donovan and other lawmakers wrote in a letter to Ryan and Brady. – PK

Council Speaker Corey Johnson added his support to the rally and said it’s important to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness. “Far too many New Yorkers struggle with depression, anxiety and other forms of mental illness, and we need to eradicate the stigma associated with mental health once and for all,” Johnson said in a statement. “This year alone, we have seen too many high-profile tragedies after these individuals took their own lives.

Commissioner of Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Visits Bay Ridge

BY JAIME DEJESUS

ocusing on the issues of fear and discrimination, the commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) Bitta Mostofi appeared at the Beit El-Maqdis Islamic Center of Bay Ridge on Friday, August 24 to address the borough’s Muslim community. “One of the things that’s so important and has been such a huge part of the way that this administration and this mayor have been doing our work is making sure we are reaching out to all communities where they are,, where they’re practicing their faith, where they’re receiving their education or other services,” she told this paper, stressing that a key facet of the policy is, “Making ourselves available and accessible to connect them with resources and services.” Following the Jumu’ah prayer, a traditional part of Islamic Friday worship,

Mostofi spoke to the crowd, acknowledged their worries, and then fielded individual questions. “I know this moment in time in our communities has been challenging and I know this personally because my family is Iranian and I grew up looking for community that I could get involved with and organize with, especially after 9/11,” she said. “What I learned in doing that work is how important it was for me to work with my sisters and brothers, to learn from each other and for us to be stronger working together and to truly represent why communities matter in our country and how we give so much back to our communities.” While speaking with individuals, a big part of what Mostofi heard was the fear of the possible rule changes emanating from the Trump administration. “There is anxiety because of the moment in time that we are in with the country,” she said. “The mayor was clear when we got the

decision about the travel ban from the Supreme Court that what we’re seeing happening in our country is truly institutionalized Islamophobia. It is our job as the city to fight back against that and to make sure all our Muslim fellow New Yorkers know that the city still stands with them. We want to try and support people, particularly in their

time of need, to know what their rights are and how to connect with services.”

One man asked about green card status. Although no change has been made yet, a key, said Mostofi, is to be proactive if a harmful one is introduced. “If (the federal government) announces it wants to make a change, it is so important to send letters to the federal government to say why this change would be very bad. We’ll have 30-60 days to tell the government, don’t make this change; it will be very bad for our communities, families, cities,” Mostofi said. Although it’s not her first visit to Bay Ridge, Mostofi stressed the importance of coming back. “It is fundamentally part of the work of our Office of Immigrant Affairs and the mayor’s commitment to making sure all immigrant communities at this time know that we are fighting for them; nothing about the city’s policies has changed,” she said.
