FROM THE RIGHT The question for the upcoming election is: Are you better off today then you were the last 10 years? I am! I understand the left was upset by the results of the last presidential election. There were some on the right that were also, but without the help of the politicians on the left we now have the best economy, maybe ever, the lowest unemployment for all groups, and more jobs than people. I am a fiscal conservative, not a Republican or a Democrat. I am a registered independent that has voted for both parties at one time or another and for who I believed would be the best person to do the best job. I don’t understand the lack of civility especially going on with the left. HRC said we can’t have civility until they win.

Focus on Bay Ridge

Cafiero Has Been There For Bay Ridge for Decades

By Charles F. Otey

Can Bay Ridge Afford to Lose Its Own ‘Greatest Generation?’

Community Was Improved, Defined By Dedicated Leaders Like Chip Cafiero

When did Bay Ridge become the city’s top volunteer community? Was it back in the 1990s when a thousand or more residents would take shovels and brooms in hand as part of the largest community clean-ups Brooklyn has ever seen? Why was Bay Ridge proclaimed by the Daily News as the best neighborhood in Brooklyn to raise children? Could one explanation be the children-cheering Ragamuffin Parade involving tens of thousands of kids, which started way back in 1967? Answers to both these questions can be found by looking into the deeds of those people who have extended themselves on behalf of the Greater Bay Ridge community. Some have been cited by the Bay Ridge Community Council, the Ragamuffin Parade Committee or the Merchants of Third Avenue’s Pioneers program, now in its 25th year. Maybe we could call them members of Bay Ridge’s Greatest Generation. I certainly will. They didn’t help us get through a war, but they did tackle urban blight, ubiquitous graffiti and the myriad challenges to keep this “Garden Spot of Brooklyn” as clean as an urban community can be through the Greater Bay Ridge Clean-up Campaign.

At the Top of the List: Chip Cafiero

The first person who comes to mind for lengthy and highly valued service is Chip Cafiero, who’s been active in all of the aforementioned activities and more for decades. Through this newspaper, Paula Katinas and I have been eyewitnesses to Cafiero’s involve-

ment in community activities — running the Third Avenue Festival for more than 40 years! We just happen to have on file certain photos that we offer as proof to newcomers and the “Twitteratti” that, like others of Bay Ridge’s Greatest Generation, Cafiero has “been here and done that” since the 1970s (you can look it up). We will, and we promise to tell about others who are well-qualified to be called part of Bay Ridge’s Greatest Generation.

Cafiero’s Facebook Message Stirs Shock, Sadness & More

Understandably, many were upset when they saw the following Facebook post Cafiero issued following the recent senatorial election: “Great things are proposed for the new Bay Ridge and I will have time to watch them since I won’t be delivering turkeys to the needy, putting up Christmas trees, playing Santa, running Easter Egg hunts, organizing park clean-ups or producing Concerts in the Parks or helping with Summer Strolls, and, of course, I can finally go trick-or-treating!” Saddened and shocked, hundreds replied with the same theme: “Say it isn’t so, Chip!” He quickly replied, “I am not leaving Bay Ridge. I love this community. It’s just that [state Sen.] Marty [Golden] and I were a team that worked together right from the start and created most of the events along with his staff. Now, if Marty is no longer in office, that team will no longer exist and I can finally enjoy quality time with my family and friends. You will still see me in the neighborhood. I will still coordinate the

Again, I am not disappearing, and I’m sure Marty isn’t either.”

Approximately 20 years ago, Chip Cafiero huddles with Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe.

SLA Suspends Liquor License for Sunset Park’s Blue Martini 39 Lounge

Blue Martini 39 Lounge. BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

S

unset Park bar Blue Martini 39 Lounge, 314 39th Street, had its liquor license suspended by the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) during a full board meeting on Tues., Nov. 20 The stoppage was ordered by SLA Chairperson Vincent Bradley, and Commissioners Lily Fan and Greeley Ford. The liquor license suspension, according to the SLA, followed an incident on Sat., Nov. 10, in which a highly intoxicated patron leaving the bar was fatally struck by a car. Authorities said that at around 1:16 a.m., the victim was crossing Third Avenue near 39th Street when he was hit by a black 2016 Chevy Camaro operated by a 20-year-old man. When cops arrived, they saw the victim on the ground with severe head

trauma. EMS rushed the victim to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn. According to a police source, surveillance video showed that the victim had been served too much alcohol before he was thrown out of the establishment and struck by the car. “There is actually video in regards to this,” said the source. “It’s not for public consumption, but we felt the story should be told. On the video, it shows the man that was run over was passed out inside the bar earlier. I guess he regained consciousness, and they’re still serving him liquor after he came to. Shortly after, you see them escorting him out. They’re literally grabbing him and kicking him out. You see him walk out the club and I kid you not, about 15 seconds later, you see the impact when he gets hit by the car. He got overserved. The guy ended up dying. His brother-in-law was

with him at the time. But he wasn’t hit by the car.” Following up on the incident, on Fri., Nov. 16, the SLA and officers from the NYPD conducted an inspection, resulting in the SLA charging the licensee with 17 violations, including “two counts of selling to an intoxicated patron, employing unlicensed bouncers, failing to permit an inspection, failure to maintain books and records, in addition to seven codes violations, operating a disorderly premises and failure to supervise.” According to the SLA’s attorney, Christopher Riano, “This licensee has not only ignored the laws concerning selling to intoxicated individuals, minors and after-hours sales, but she has also refused to cooperate with the police on multiple occasions.” By taking action, Riano added, “The authority has shown that any establishment that continues to ignore the law and strain police resources, and

particularly those that overserve their patrons to

the point where those patrons are in life-threatening

danger, will be shut down immediately.” The SLA determined that the licensee had a recent pattern of selling alcohol in a reckless manner. “Based on referrals from the NYPD, the SLA currently has three pending cases against the Blue Martini 39 Lounge, including selling to a minor on Sept. 21, 2018, failure to permit an inspection on Sept. 1, 2018 and for selling alcohol after 4 a.m. on Aug. 4, 2018,” said the SLA in a statement. “These cases are currently pending before the SLA.” The police source said that the bar owner recently surrendered his liquor license.

Dyker Leaders Step Up Effort to Police Christmas Lights Display BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

s the first of the famous D y ke r Heights Christmas lights displays went up, community leaders and local officials are stepping up efforts to tame the month-long extravaganza to avoid the craziness of previous years. “The city has been very supportive of us. What we want is to have a safety plan in place that works,” Dyker Heights Civic Association President Fran Vella-Marrone told this newspaper on Monday. The end of the long Thanksgiving weekend usually signals the start of the Christmas lights display as homeowners turn their attention to decorating their front lawns with eye-popping holiday decorations in preparation for the hordes of visitors who come and gawk at the over-the-top extravaganza. Vella-Marrone also sought to clarify the position of the Dyker Heights Civic Association on the Christmas lights. Following a Nov. 13 civic association meeting during

which a crackdown of the holiday display was discussed, Vella-Marrone said she read numerous comments on social networking sites criticizing her group’s efforts and accusing the organization’s members of being Grinches. People had gotten the mistaken impression that the civic association is opposed to the display, she said. “We’re not against the Christmas lights display. We’re not trying to shut it down. I couldn’t shut it down even if I wanted to. These are private homeowners doing something on their private property. But we want to make it safe and enjoyable for everyone,” Vella-Marrone said. The safety plan the civic association is pushing would include traffic enforcement to keep the tour buses and private cars moving as well as enforcement by the New York City Department of Health to crack down on unlicensed vendors selling cider and hot chocolate on the streets. Working with Community Board 10 District Manager Josephine Beckmann, Vella-Marrone is

The Dyker Heights Civic Association loves the elaborate Christmas decorations put on display by homeowners, but the large numbers of visitors who descend on the neighborhood each year lead to public safety concerns, President Fran Vella-Marrone said.

also seeking a crackdown on homeowners who lease space in their driveways to the food vendors in violation of city health regulations. In previous years, the proliferation of food vendors has led to a sharp increase in litter on local streets, according to Vella-Marrone. “The Department of Health is essential to this plan,” said Vella-Marrone, adding that the agency can levy heavy-duty fines (in some cases $1,000) on people who violate the rules. The fines can serve as a deterrent, she said. Dyker Heights residents usually unveil their Christmas lights right after Thanksgiving and keep them up until shortly after New Year’s Day. Most are concentrated in the area between 10th and 13th avenues from 82nd Street to 86th Street where scores of homeowners erect twostory-tall Santas, dancing reindeer, giant Nutcrackers, illuminated snowflakes and other over-the-top decorations in front of their houses. The show attracts tens of thousands of holiday-happy

visitors, including many tourists who arrive on tour buses to take in the sights and sounds. But the holiday extravaganza, while enjoyable, creates major headaches for Dyker Heights residents, according to Vella-Marrone. The problems include a near-constant flow of vehicular traffic on side streets that prevents residents from getting their cars out of their driveways, children who ignore oncoming traffic and dash across the street, and visitors who carelessly discard cups of hot chocolate on sidewalks, Vella-Marrone said. Beckmann agreed that the Christmas display has gotten a bit out of hand. “It really has become a hardship for residents,” Beckmann said at the civic association meeting two weeks ago. The New York Police Department is aware of the situation, according to Deputy Police Chief Charles Scholl of Patrol Borough Brooklyn South. “You’re going to see some resolution to this problem,” he assured residents at the civic association meeting.

Grinches Vandalize Dyker Lights, Steal Copper Wire BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

here’s no place like D yker Heig hts for the holidays — something that unknown thieves and vandals have apparently discovered, to residents’ dismay. According to Dyker Heights resident Renea Gargiulo, who heads the growing Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Facebook page, a number of local residents reached out in wake of the unexpected Nov. 15 snowstorm to say that their lights had been vandalized. “Basically I was told that when it snowed that Thursday, there were a handful of homes that were affected by someone clipping their power cords for their

HOLIDAY GUIDE

Storied Lights Shine on in Dyker Heights

ebrooklyn media/Photos by Steve Solomonson

The houses in Dyker Heights are already alight for the holidays.

By Meaghan McGoldrick

mmcgoldrick@brooklynreporter.com

All is merry and bright and ahead of schedule in Dyker Heights. The small south Brooklyn nabe — lauded as “Con Ed’s warmest heartthrob” and the “undisputed capital of Christmas pageantry” by the New York Times — has begun to deck its halls with this season’s round of larger-than-life holiday displays that, neighbors say, only get bigger and brighter each year. According to local resident Renea Gargiulo, lights – which typically make their debut Thanksgiving weekend – were starting to be hung this year as early as mid-November. “Everyone started decorating early in the main area,” said Gargiulo, who started the Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Facebook page “on a whim” five years ago. “The rest of the houses should be lit by Dec. 1.” A yearly staple since sometime in the late ‘80s – though no residents are really sure of when the lights sparked such a buzz – the decorative, dazzling and sometimes over-the-top lights recruit visitors from neighboring communities along with travelers from other states and even countries (some of them even utilizing ticketed tour buses). Many of those admirers keep up with the festivities via Gargiulo’s page, which as of this season has more than 17,000 followers. “It’s been doing phenomenal,” said the Dyker native of the Facebook page. “I keep getting more and more people liking the page from around the world. They always have great things to say after they’ve visited.” Since its creation half a decade ago, Gargiulo said, her page has become a go-to for information and live-time updates on the annual event. She said she most often has to reiterate to out-of-towners that Dyker Heights is just your regular neighborhood. “They think it’s an amusement park with admission and that there are bathrooms,” she laughed, “so it’s just a constant updating of information.” Gargiulo stressed that her intention with the page is to “support the community at large.” “I don’t make any money for running this page,” she went on. “It’s not a business for me. It’s just something that I do in my spare time because I love the tradition so much.” Gargiulo isn’t alone. The tried-and-true tradition draws packedto-the-gills crowds each year. However, as can be expected, the growing displays do come with their fair share of criticism – much of it sparked by the congestion. To address concerns, the Dyker Heights Civic Association (DHCA) has partnered with the New York City Police Department (and, most notably, the 68th Precinct) to come up with a detailed safety plan that includes traffic enforcement to keep the tour buses and private cars moving as well as enforcement by the New York City Department of Health to crack down on unlicensed vendors selling cider and hot chocolate on the streets. Arguments aside, the lights can be seen now through early January, with the area from 10th Avenue to 12th Avenue across the 80s particularly dramatically lit. When asked if she, herself still loved the lights, Gargiulo didn’t hesitate. “I can’t live without them,” she said. “Each year it brings such great energy and Christmas spirit to the community and to my family because it’s something that’s been a part of our lives for so long.” Still, she is hopeful that more can be done to ease congestion. “I really feel like this is the year where there’s going to be some serious action taken to get some support for the people that live in the area,” Gargiulo said. “It’s just too good of a tradition not to.” Additional reporting by Paula Katinas

Sunset Residents Brave Cold for BID’s Annual Tree Lighting BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

It was a winter wonderland in Sunset Park. Despite frigid temperatures, the Sunset Park Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District hosted its annual tree lighting ceremony on Thurs., Nov. 23 in front of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 60th Street and Fifth Avenue, complete with entertainment, pictures with Santa Claus, and gifts, all for free. Executive Director for the BID David Estrada — part of the event for the first time under that title — called it a major success. “Aside from being freezing, it was fantastic,” he said. “The proof for me was when I saw the clown on stage. It was freezing cold yet these kids were so zeroed in on the entertainment.” He was grateful to the church for hosting the beloved event. “It’s a 20-year tradition and I’m just thankful that the tradition can continue through their generosity,” Estrada said. In addition, Estrada praised the local talent. “We have a

warm trolley,” Estrada said. “It was a fun place to go in, take their photo with him and get a free gift.” Local businesses also were critical to the success of the event. “A couple of the sponsors like Cricket Wireless did giveaways and they raffled off a phone,” Estrada said. “Part of what makes me happy is that the BID isn’t looking outside the neighborhood to support these kinds of events. Local merchants see value in

sustaining these traditions and that’s another warm part of the holiday season. They see that it’s worth investing in their own neighborhood to have events that people really care about.” Other sponsors included Amalgamated Bank, Anay’s Boutique Inc. and Johnny’s Pizzeria. The tradition of the tree lighting caters to residents old and new. “I have to believe a lot of people walking by might have been seeing the tree lighting for the very first time with their little children,” said Estrada. “It’s a really positive event. Whether you immigrated or relocated to Sunset Park a year ago or you’ve been living here all of your life, it’s like a touchstone.” Free trolley rides will also take place on Sat., Dec. 15, Sun., Dec. 16 and Sat. Dec. 17. For more information, visit www.sunsetparkbid.org.

NOVEMBER Calendar of Events Week of the 22nd to 28th

Art SCHOOL OF PAIN The exhibition School of Pain draws on the work of Leopold von SacherMasoch and Marquis de Sade, the first two thinkers of economies of desire. Sade with his ironic demonstrations may be seen as a predecessor to the attitudes of twentieth century modern and conceptual art. The libidinal economy, unleashed by modern reason, turned out to easily adopt such subversions in the constant mutations of advanced capitalism. The originally subversive imagery of Sade’s mechanized, accelerating and coldly executed desire therefore turned out to be a very literal image of our time. The exhibition poses the question of whether the related but oppositional position of Masoch, based on suspension and

humor, couldn’t be the answer to both a return of contemporary art from theory to the sensual, but also meaningful art’s attitude towards an overly alienated world. The exhibition features work by artists Than Hussein Clark, Anna Daučíková, Chiara Fumai, Mark Ther and BRUD (Aditya Mandayam) and is curated by Michal Novotný, Director of Centre for Contemporary Art FUTURA in Prague. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through December 16th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Art in General (145 Plymouth Street) SIXTEEN MEMOS FOR THE NEXT MILLENNIUM An exhibition featuring the works of NARS Foundation’s 2018 Season IV artists-inresidence. The exhibition takes its title from Italo Calvino’s ‘Six Memos for the Next Millennium,’ a series of Charles Eliot Norton Poetry Lectures he was invited to

give at Harvard University over the course of the academic year between 1985-1986 regarding the literary values he identified as being of most importance for the coming millennium. He had intended to deliver eight lectures in total, but at the time of his departure to Massachusetts, he had written only five of them, which are teeming with references to stories of folklore, mythology, philosophical thought, etc. The sixth, his wife Esther Calvino revealed in the forward of the book, was planned to refer to Herman Melville’s story of ‘Bartleby,’ the scrivener who ‘preferred not to.’ When: Daily through December 16th, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Sunset Park/NARS Foundation (201 46th Street) SOUND WORDS Sound Words, a solo exhibition of new works by Joo Yeon Woo.

This exhibition features artists who reveal a capacity for empathy, a willingness to reflect on another’s point of view or to understand those whose backgrounds differ from their own. Through photography, video, sculpture, drawing, embroidery, installation, performance, and virtual reality, the artists engage in projects that employ deep listening, compassion, care ethics, and other empathic skills. Bundith Phunsombatlert collaborated with seniors at Rosetta Gatson Neighborhood Senior Center through a series of workshops, inviting senior residents to share their stories while teaching them the cyanotype photographic printing process. All of the participants were Caribbean immigrants and several of their migration narratives were collected into an artist book that is being published by the artist. Appalled by news reports of immigrant children being separated from their families at the U.S.-Mexico border, Michael Kelly Williams was moved to create a new work for the exhibition, which addresses the immigrant crisis in this country. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through December 30th, 12 – 6 p.m.

Apophatic meditations on the modern canon which endeavor to honor tradition by undermining, over-saturating, or inverting it. From the subtle to the sublime, that which was once deemed non-objective by Malevich, has become radicalized into a planar lucidity of the material object-in-itself.

administration’s Muslim ban and subsequent restraining orders move closer to the Supreme Court, outgoing Teen Council Members identified immigration as the timely and broad topic for 2018. In responding to their mandate, 2018 Council Members analyzed how concepts of “us” and “them” lead to stereotypes of immigrants and considered how race and immigration have intersected differently across eras. They sought to strike a delicate balance between the range of immigrant experiences across time, culture, and individual life trajectories. Council members grappled with ongoing, unifying themes related to living away from the land of one’s birth— language, cultural fluidity, code switching, and American immigration law and policing. The resultant exhibition, Brooklyn: A New Home, a New Life, features stories about historical Brooklynites: Harriet Judson, John Roebling, Nathan Handwerker, and Shirley Chisholm, as well as Ravi Ragbir, a contemporary immigration activist. The people featured are not all immigrants, but each represent a different lens into the story of American immigrants, and show, CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE

Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-affirming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and Photos courtesy of crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs;Medina a mother and her son have Christine a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.

The CM Brand has successfully transformed businesses from the 14INB •ground INBROOKLYN — A Special Section up. With over seven yearsofofBrooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of June 14-20, 2018 marketing experience, begun when she was an undergraduate, Medina was able to use her expertise to launch her own marketing and brand agency. Medina began her career in 2014 as a struggling college graduate trying to make it in the corporate world. After countless interviews, reality set in for the then 23-yearold, but she knew it was a challenge that she had to face. “If no company will hire me then I would create my own,” Medina said. Her agency offers a wide-array of services for its clients including brand and web design, content creation and calendar, photography, copywriting, logo design, branding and marketing strategy, brand identity package, graphic design services, print marketing services, marketing consulting, management consultant, social media consulting, brand consulting and business consulting. CM Brand clients range from real estate firms like Wire Reality to financial companies and well-known restaurants like Calexico NYC. “Working with the CM Brand has helped my business grow and has become a top brand in my industry,” said Oneida Franco of Franco Blueprint. This year alone, the CM Brand has won two awards, become a corporation, and was featured in two podcasts. It has also expanded its team and Medina hopes to open an office in Manhattan in the near future. The agency hosts a group of business consultants (Franco Blueprint) and a management consultant (Lenny Pesce) along with marketing and branding consultants. “We enjoy working with our clients and helping make their businesses successful,” Medina said. “Every client we work with becomes part of the team.

A Look at the Books that have Inspired Literary Classics By Hillel Italie

The Associated Press

Behind every great book are the books which influenced it. The “micro-learning” app and platform blinkist.com has been compiling literary sources for such classics as “A Clockwork Orange,” ‘’Oliver Twist” and “1984.” Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” was inspired by each of her parents — William Godwin’s “An Enquiry Concerning Political Justice” and Mary Wollstonecraft’s “A Vindication of the Rights of Women.” One of the defining novels of the Civil War era, Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” drew in part upon one of the defining memoirs, “The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave.” Douglass’ book, which remains standard reading in many schools, also was cited by Toni Morrison for her Pulitzer Prize-winning historical novel “Beloved.” “We were noticing the attention around the 200th anniversary of ‘Frankenstein’ and got to thinking about the nonfiction works which help author of fiction,” says Blinkist writer-editor Tom Anderson. “We think of those books as the unsung heroes.” Charles Dickens’ portrait of extreme wealth and poverty in London in “Oliver Twist” was in part modeled on Edward Gibbon’s “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire.” Anthony Burgess drew upon fiction and nonfiction for his terrifying “A Clockwork Orange,” his sources including Aldous Huxley’s futuristic classic “Brave New World” and B.F. Skinner’s landmark of psychology “Science and Human Behavior.” Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” reflected the

This combination photo shows, from left, covers of classic books “War and Peace” by Leo Tolstoy and George Orwell’s “1984.” Knopf/Signet Classics via AP author’s reading of the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer, along with works about Napoleon and French history. According to Tolstoy scholar Ani Kokobobo, the author was “captivated” by Schopenhauer and his belief that “death is the only reality,” a viewpoint expressed by the cerebral Prince Andrei Nikolayevich Bolkonsky in “War and Peace.” Kokobobo also noted that “War and Peace” was a response in part to such French

scholarship as Adolphe Thiers’ “History of the Consulate and the Empire of France Under Napoleon,” which Tolstoy believed exaggerated Napoleon’s stature and military ideas. “Tolstoy did not believe in this ‘great man’ theory, also propagated by Thomas Carlyle, and thought that victory and defeat were not determined by a sole heroic leader, but rather by the collective align-

ment of the will of thousands,” said Kokobobo, editor of the Tolstoy Studies Journal. George Orwell’s 1984, the dystopian political novel which has become a best-seller again during the Trump administration, reflects in part the British author’s reading of two nonfiction studies: James Burnham’s “The Managerial Revolution” and Halford Mackinder’s “Democratic Ideals and Reality: A Study in the Politics of Reconstruction.” In a recent telephone interview, Orwell’s son, Richard Blair, said his father was “the most voracious reader” who “absorbed enormous amounts of books.” Orwell Society committee member Les Hurst said that “1984” shows how Orwell adapted the ideas of others to his own. He noted a passage from the Mackinder book, which came out just after World War I: “Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland; who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island; who rules the World-Island commands the world.” Orwell borrowed Mackinder’s framing for one of the most famous epigrams from “1984”: “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” “The Mackinder book sat in Orwell’s mind for several years,” Hurst said. “Orwell was able to translate those words, able to extend Burnham’s concepts of power and power worship and to take ideals of geopolitics and perform this great imaginative leap, from geography and cast into the past and into the future. He takes something with two dimensions and turned it into something that is three dimensional.”

Many elected officials, community activists and artists are speaking out against Optimum Cable for not carrying OVATION TV.

"We pay a lot of money for Optimum. We are asking you to please consider Ovation Network for the value they bring to our communities” - NYC Councilmember Jumaane Williams (D-Brooklyn) “The fact that Optimum Cable doesn’t carry the arts network Ovation TV to some of the most diverse arts communities like the Bronx, Brooklyn and Long Island sends the wrong message" - Steve Cas, Illustrator, Brooklyn NY “I use my art form to help homeless children and Ovation lets me tell my story on their channel" - 8 year-old Miracle Robinson, Designer, Bronx NY “Art is a form of healing I want to lift those people up when they're feeling down. Optimum needs to open their eyes and see the bigger picture” - Kim “Good Look” Seabrook, Poet, Bronx NY “It is truly an injustice that the only ones who don’t have an opportunity to see these diverse and talented artists featured on Ovation TV, are the Optimum customers in these communities. - Bertha Lewis, President of the Black Institute "I'm here to tell Optimum to get it right, and provide access to the arts to people from all communities and walks of life" - NYC Councilmember Donovan Richards (D-Queens)

It’s time for Optimum to listen to their community and carry OVATION TV.

Take a Stroll on Marcy Avenue, Part Two ABOVE: Construction is well underway at 277 South 5th St.

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

BRIEF HISTORY: williamsburg Let’s see now, Williamsburg. “Burg,” we know, means a town or village. But who was the “William” who gave this neighborhood — once a town — his name? To begin, this area was originally bought from the local Indians by the Dutch West India Company in 1638 and became part of the town of Boswijck. After the English took New Netherland in 1664, the name of the town was Anglicized to Bushwick; the townspeople generally called it Bushwick Shore. It was a rural area until in 1810 a real-estate speculator, Richard Woodhull, acquired 13 acres in the area

where there was a ferry service from what is today Metropolitan Avenue to Corlear’s Hook in Manhattan. He named the area after Col. Jonathan Williams, a U.S. engineer who had originally surveyed the site. It was incorporated as the Village of Williamsburgh within the town of Bushwick in 1827. Williamsburg rapidly expanded during the first half of the 19th century and separated itself from Bushwick. The population in the area continued to grow until, in 1855, Williamsburg was annexed along with the town of Bushwick by what then became the City of Brooklyn — and the “h” in the name was dropped.

The construction of the Williamsburg Bridge in 1903 opened up the area to immigrants seeking to get out of the tenements of the Lower East Side in Manhattan. Today, Williamsburg’s neighbors are Greenpoint, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Bushwick and, farther east, Ridgewood in Queens. Interestingly, 27 of the streets in Williamsburg are named with the last names of signers of the Declaration of Independence. — Norm Goldstein

This historic road runs through the heart of BedfordStuyvesant and zigs and zags through the south end of Williamsburg. It was named after 19th-century politician William Learned Marcy, Leonard Benardo and Jennifer Weiss’ book “Brooklyn by Name” says. Marcy was a U.S. Senator from New York, our state’s Governor and the U.S. Secretary of State under Franklin Pierce. Marcy Avenue is an excellent route for an autumn walk, which you’ll enjoy a great deal more if you bundle up. ‘Tis the season for down coats and UGG boots. We’ve split our story into two parts.

A street artist called Dirt Cobain, who was originally from the San Francisco Bay area, painted the mural. On the opposite corner of Vernon Avenue, an old fashioned rowhouse at 586 Marcy Ave. nestles up against a taller apartment building. The rowhouse belongs to an LLC with Max Jacobs as a member, which bought the property for $1.15 million in 2015, Finance Department records indicate. The owner has filed plans with the city Build-

Dutch town of Boswijck (Bushwick). Dutch, French and Scandinavian farmers settled in the area with their African slaves in the late 1600s and the land remained rural until 1802 when Richard Woodhull envisioned a residential area for Manhattan workers. Woodhull began a ferry service from what is today Metropolitan Avenue to Corlear’s Hook in Manhattan and purchased 13 acres around the landing, naming it Williamsburgh after Col. Jonathan Williams, who had originally surveyed the site. His service lacked interest though and Woodhull went bankrupt in 1811. David Dunham then tried his luck with a steam ferry that became largely successful. Industry soon poured into the neighborhood in the form of distilleries and sugar refineries along the shore. Some of the largest firms in America, including Pfizer Pharmaceutical and what is today the

was chartered as a city in 1852 before it was annexed by the City of Brooklyn in 1855. The face of Williamsburg changed in 1903 when the Williamsburg Bridge opened and Eastern European immigrants left the crowded Lower East Side of Manhattan to come to Brooklyn. Six-story tenements were built and brownstones and wood frame houses were turned into multifamily dwellings. By 1917, the population had more than doubled and the area had the most densely populated blocks in Brooklyn. Jewish immigrants fleeing Nazism settled in what is today called Southside but after a large Latin American influence, the section of the neighborhood is now referred to as Los Sures. The Northside, filled with a mix of artists and young professionals, was separated from the rest of Williamsburg when the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway was built in 1957.

Eye on Williamsburg

Here’s Marcy Avenue where it intersects Flushing Avenue. BELOW: Marcy Armory is an architectural treasure.

Part Two: Take a Stroll on Marcy Avenue — Continued from page 20INB —

‘I’M FROM MARCY SON, JUST THOUGHT I’D REMIND Y’ALL’

You’ll walk past the Marcy Houses complex, which is located on Marcy Avenue between Myrtle and Flushing avenues. Music mogul Jay-Z famously grew up in this New York City Housing Authority project, which opened in 1947. So did actor Tracy Morgan. North of Flushing Avenue, the neighborhood changes from Bed-Stuy to Williamsburg. Marcy Avenue veers slightly left at the intersection of Flushing Avenue. Adjacent Union Avenue is angled slightly to the right at this complicated intersection, and Gerry Street

is further to the right. For several blocks, Marcy Avenue runs through an area where many Hasidic residents live. As you keep walking, you’ll notice a development site at 415 Marcy Ave. on the corner of Walton Street. An apartment building is planned there. The fenced-in site has been bulldozed in preparation for construction. The property belongs to an LLC with Ezra Unger as authorized signatory, Finance Department records indicate.

AN ARMORY AND A YMCA ROOMING HOUSE

The magnificent New York State Armory stands at 355 Marcy Ave. It was built in 1883, an inscription over one of the doors indicates.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

The Marcy Avenue side of the former National Guard armory looks like a red-brick castle with austere, lean lines. The other side of the building, which is on Harrison Avenue, has rounded turrets. The 47th Regiment Armory, as it was originally known, cost $125,000 to build — and had eight rifle galleries in the basement, a posting on the Forgotten New York website says. The armory closed in 2011. Now it is rented out as a venue for community events and film shoots under the name Marcy Armory. Another fab old-fashioned building is located at 185 Marcy Ave. It’s an office building now. When it was constructed back in 1905, it was a YMCA rooming house, the Real Deal reported last year. An LLC with Elliott Neumann as president bought the building for $29.95 million in 2017, Finance Department records indicate. Neumann is the CEO of Acuity Capital Partners. According to Buildings Department filings, the new owner is renovating 185 Marcy Ave.’s public areas and some tenant areas and relocating the building’s main lobby.

WHO IS CHRIS RIGGS FOR MAYOR?

Marcy Avenue runs beneath elevated subway tracks as it crosses Broadway. One of the buildings at this intersection is covered with a mural with flowers and the words “love” and “peace” in overlapping patterns. The artist who made this mural uses the name Chris Riggs for Mayor. His paintings and sculptures are in museums, galleries and private collections in more than 50 countries, his website says. After you walk beneath the subway tracks, you’ll see the Marcy Avenue frontage of a development whose address is 277 South 5th St. It’s going to be a 23-story apartment tower. Landmarked Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, which is located right next door, will be incorporated into this project that Tavros Development Partners and Charney Construction & Development are building. See brooklyneagle.com to read about the century-old bank building. Marcy Avenue passes beneath the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway at South 3rd Street. From this point until it ends, the avenue runs alongside the highway — but it has lots of scenic spots. For instance, there are handsome old rowhouses at the Marcy Avenue corners of South 3rd Street, South 2nd Street and Grand Street. At 38 Marcy Ave. on the corner of Hope Street, there’s an eye-catching abstract mural painted by D. Addison. Marcy Avenue ends at Metropolitan Avenue. The last building on Marcy Avenue is a Capital One Bank branch that was constructed several years ago. Its address is 416 Metropolitan Ave. Week of November 29 - December 5, 2018 • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • 21INB Week of November 29 - December 5, 2018 • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • 21INB

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Brooklyn Congregations Named In Top Ten ‘Most Gospel’ Churches

Being ‘GRATEFUL’ With Dessert Cabaret

The First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn, which is nearing its bicentennial in four years, is among several Brooklyn churches named in the radio station and website 1190 WLIB Top 10 ‘Most Gospel Churches.” 1190 WLIB identifies itself as “New York’s Gospel, inspiration and information station.” First Presbyterian Church joins the Brooklyn Tabernacle (Downtown Brooklyn), the Temple of Restoration (Boerum Hill), the Christian Cultural Center (East New York) and United Pentecostal Deliverance (East Flatbush) in the Top Ten. First Presbyterian Church attributes much of this accolade to its longtime minister of music, Amy Neuner, whom Pastor Adriene Thorne credits for having shaped the church’s music ministry and choir over many years. The Brooklyn Tabernacle also is known for its choir ministry as well as its graceful sermons, according to WLIB. The six-time Grammy Award-winning choir, under the direction of Carol Cymbala, sang at President Obama’s 2013 inauguration. The Temple of Restoration, a Pentecostal Ministry, also restored a former Lutheran church building at 490 Pacific St. Restoration’s ministry started off with just a handful of people and currently has multiple locations, including at 490 Pacific St., with

Beloved ‘All-Of-A-Kind Family’ Featured in New Hanukkah Book With Art by Heights Illustrator Just in time for Hanukkah, which begins on Mon., Dec. 3, comes a new picture book by Emily Jenkins with artwork by Brooklyn Heights book illustrator Paul Zelinsky. Readers may remember the original Allof-a-Kind family books that Sydney Taylor wrote from the 1950s to the 1970s. Taylor based her much-loved books on her own experiences growing up in the early 1900s in a large and loving Jewish family living on the Lower East Side. This new “All-of-AKind Family,” book theme has the five girls helping their mother prepare their Hanukkah dinner, but one of them feels left out. Paul Zelinsky, who received the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Illustrators, gave a presentation on the creative process and challenges of illustrating a children’s book, including his exploration of Photoshop in select instances. He is pictured here autographing books.

St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church is celebrating both the renovation of its parish hall and its designation as Pro-Cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island this Friday night, as the landmark parish hosts “GRATEFUL,” a fundraiser cabaret and dessert event. Attendees will enjoy homemade desserts and raise a glass to parish successes in ministry and service to its neighbors over the past year. St. Ann’s fundraising cabaret brings in some all-star performers. Award-winning instrumentalist Micah Young will accompany Broadway singers Michael Winther and Tracy Michailidis on the piano as they perform classics from the American Songbook. Stand-up comedian Diana Yanez will kick-start a fun evening. GRATEFUL takes place on Fri., Nov. 30, from 7-9 p.m. in the parish hall of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, 157 Montague St. (just west of Clinton Street). Register through Brown Paper Tickets to attend GRATEFUL at any level.

CORRECTION

Because of photo credit information that was not received in time for last week’s press deadline, the attribution was incorrect for the photo of singer Ronny Weiland, who gave a concert at a Brooklyn Heights church on Mon., Nov. 26. Although the official photographer’s name was not communicated to us, the photo of Mr. Weiland was supplied courtesy of Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church. INBrooklyn regrets the error.

thousands of visitors and members attending service weekly. Each day of the week has a different prayer and theme: For example, financial restoration on Mondays, health restoration on Tuesdays and family restoration on Thursdays. The temple also provides a 24hour prayer hotline. The Christian Cultural Center [incorrectly named in WLIB’s story as the Christian Culture Center] began 40 years ago as a small congregation in Williamsburg. The senior pastor, the Rev. A. R. Bernard, brought his experience from a banking career into his ministry. WLIB’s Melissa Gabriel writes that the CCC “is infamously known for vibrant, modern and energetic sermons normally led by Pastor A. Bernard,” and also notes, “This church is the middle ground between personal life and personal mission, which is spiritual growth.” United Pentecostal Deliverance is “an intimate church designed for all worshippers who enjoy shouting their love for Jesus to the heavens above. Providing a slew of passionate worshippers, United Pentecostal Deliverance encourages every visitor and member to leave their nerves at home and be prepared to dance their sins away!” writes Gabriel.

Faith in the Brooklyn Eagle Archives German Lutheran Church In Heights Marked Its 35th Anniversary

The religion section of the Mo., Nov. 30, 1891 Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported the 35th anniversary of Zion German Evangelical Lutheran Church. The congregation had been founded on the first Sunday in Advent, 1855, which in that year, fell on Dec. 2 (as it does in 2018). According to the church’s website, Zion Church was established “when twelve German immigrants together with Pastor Friedrich W.T. Steimle worshiped in small stable on Washington Street.” The article indicated that Zion was celebrating its 35th anniversary “by appropriate services, morning, afternoon and evening,” [although a count of the years between 1855 and 1891 would indicate 36 years]. “The Zion society is now a large one, but its growth has come from small beginnings. The present church building is capacious and is the original one erected in 1858. In those days, however, the congregation did

not nearly fill it. Now, while the edifice is not by any means too small, it is always well-filled, the list of church members is considerably over two thousand, and the society is free from debt. The present pastor, Rev. E.C.J. Kraeling, has been in charge about five years.”

Holy Trinity Church Memorialized Philanthropist George Peabody

The Brooklyn Eagle covered the installation and dedication of the Charles Jones Peabody Memorial Organ on Nov. 29, 1925. Built by Ernest Skinner that year, the organ was donated by George Foster Peabody, Charles’ brother. Peabody had died in February of the previous year. The Peabody Memorial Organ as it is called, “comprises 4,718 pipes, ranging from 2 inches to 32 feet in length, as well as 20 chimes and a 61-note celesta,” according to the website of St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church, which the parish is now named.

By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor

The 1925 Eagle story begins, “As a monument memorial of a philanthropist, an active church worker and a devoted Christian, what could be finer than a great church organ in a place of worship he loved? That is the thought that actuated the $50,000 gift-installation by the heirs of Charles Jones Peabody in Holy Trinity Church. The dedication service yesterday was impressive. At the morning service, the pastor, the Rev. John Howard Melish, said of Mr. Peabody, ‘He was one of the foremost patrons of the arts, education and music that Brooklyn ever produced. It is indeed fitting that his memory be preserved through the universal appeal of music.’” Bishop Stires, preaching at the evening service, said, “Music is the only universal language in the world today. It is the best means known to man to symbolize his highest ideals both of mind and spirit. This instrument is the most appropriate instrument to commemorate the life of Charles Jones Peabody, for the beauty and power of his personality will continue to express itself through the organ.”

OBITUARIES

+++ ELISSEOU, Andreas -- A retired business owner, died on Nov. 11, 2018, at 88 years old. He is survived by his beautiful and beloved wife, Veronica; his children, Anna, Elaine (Vincent) and Evan (Jesse); his grandchildren Veronica (Daniel), Stephanie and Christina; his brothers George (Erasmia), John (Janoula), (Despina); and many loving nieces and nephews.  He was born in Kyrenia, Cyprus. As a young man, he became a police officer in his hometown, where he served until he came to the U.S. in 1953. After landing in New York, he had hopes of starting a business and a family, but was quickly drafted into the U.S. Army. He served in Germany during the Korean War as a corporal in the military police. Andreas served his country with pride until he was honorably discharged.  He became a U.S. citizen while he was in the service. Andreas settled in Brooklyn and met his wife of 62 years, Veronica. He was a happy and proud father of three children and adored his three granddaughters.  Along

with his brother Costas, he owned Narrows Cleaners & Tailors, a fixture in the Bay Ridge community for over 35 years, until they both retired in 1989. He was a founding member of the Third Avenue Merchants Association and a leader in the Bay Ridge community. He made close friendships with many in Bay Ridge from all walks of life, including many political and business leaders. Andreas was a dedicated member of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church in Bay Ridge. He was well known throughout the Greek Orthodox community and within the Archdiocese of New York. In addition to the many offices and duties over the years at Holy Cross, he served as parish council president for four years. There, his vision of a community center, which he promoted as “A Better Future for All at Holy Cross,” became a reality as the Holy Cross Community Center. It was created to serve the then-growing Greek-American community and is now known as DGK Parochial School. Although he loved the U.S., Andreas never

ON NOV. 26, 1951, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Rome, Nov. 26 (AP) — Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower told the North Atlantic Treaty Council today that he was counting on the new ‘baby’ tactical atomic bombs for the defense of Europe against Communist aggression. Addressing the Military Committee of the council, Eisenhower said, however, that even the use of such bombs would not remove the need for 60 to 70 divisions of ground troops for his Atlantic Treaty defense forces … The Supreme Commander of the Atlantic forces said his Atlantic Treaty Command was ‘taking into account what new weapons might do to facilitate the task of building up strength in Europe … to face aggression.’”  ON NOV. 26, 1911, the Eagle published the following advertisement: “$590.00. F.O.B. Detroit, Mich. Completely Equipped. Service Guaranteed. This handsome Torpedo Runabout is the latest product of the Ford plant — a perfect all year-round car for pleasure or business, protecting the driver from rain, snow, dust and dirt — has ample power — perfect lines — just the right height of seat for comfort — generous carrying space for tools and side curtains, etc. One hundred thousand healthy, happy, sensible people are already driving Ford cars and getting the best of service from them. One-third of all the cars built and sold in this country during 1912 will be Ford Model T’s.”

Brooklyn Eagle cover from Nov. 27, 1941

ON NOV. 27, 1941, the Eagle reported, “Washington, Nov. 27 (U.P.) — Authoritative sources today expressed fear that Japan’s answer to American demands that she withdraw from the Axis and get out of China may be a Japanese attack on Thailand within the next few days. This disclosure came as White House Secretary Stephen T. Early announced that President [Franklin] Roosevelt has arranged a mid-afternoon conference with Secretary of State [Cordell] Hull and two Japanese envoys. Information reaching Washington, and disclosed by sources other than Early, reported that the Japanese were massing troops in north and south Indo-China, apparently for an offensive against Thailand and the Burma Road in China. It was assumed here that the troops would be prepared to move in case the U.S.-Japanese exploratory talks broke down completely.”

ON NOV. 27, 1918, the Eagle reported, “Borough President Edward Riegelmann today put the wheels in motion for the organization of a rousing welcome to be given to the Brooklyn boys soon to return from the battlefields of France. Plans for this had been under consideration, but action was greatly accelerated today by unofficial news from ‘over there’ that the 27th Division, which includes Brooklyn’s victory regiment, the Fighting 106th — the first American regiment to break the Hindenburg line in the sector between Cambral and St. Quentin — [which] contains a total of nearly 12,000 Brooklyn boys, had been withdrawn from the front, preparatory to embarkation and would ‘probably leave for America in a few days.’”

• When notes get in treble, bass-ically they get put behind bars. The alto-nate punishment is to push them off a clef and hope they land flat on sharp objects. • I’d tell you a chemistry joke but I know I wouldn’t get a reaction. • Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I’ll show you A-flat minor. • The other day I held the door open for a clown. I thought it was a nice jester.

erizon may have debunked the popular fan theory behind the source of the elusive Bay Ridge

“bing.” While some community members this week pegged the culprit to be a Verizon-sanctioned liftboat in the waters of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, The Gothamist on Nov. 21 noted a potential “wrinkle” in the timeline. The company told the publication that the liftboat’s work (which is to see if it can expand fiber-optic services like FIOS in Brooklyn and Staten Island) began just last week on the Staten Island side of the bridge, and only made its way to Brooklyn this past Saturday. However, Councilmember Justin Brannan first made note of the noise (which residents claim sounds like “metal on metal” and occurs at all hours of the day, though on pattern – not sporadic like construction) on Nov. 1 – long before the liftboat came to be. “The work was completed on Monday evening and the barge is expected to leave at the next high tide,” said David Weissmann, public relations manager for Verizon, in an email to The Gothamist on Tuesday afternoon. “As to the reported sounds,” he continued, “it is possible that they were a result of the work being done, but we can’t say for sure.”

The liftboat suspected to be behind the elusive Bay Ridge "bing." Brannan, as well as Community Board 10 District Manager Josephine Beckmann, originally considered the case closed. As this paper first reported, the former proclaimed on Sunday, Nov. 18 that he’d believed he’d cracked the case, pointing to the three-legged liftboat. Beckmann also told this paper that she was happy the mystery appeared solved. However, as Gothamist’s story made its rounds, it has some residents second-guessing the theory. Brannan, however, is not so sure. “I’m still not convinced the sound wasn’t coming from that weird boat but who knows? I am now receiving tips from all over the place of where the bing might be coming from,” he told this paper. “I also just saw a video from the other side of the harbor on Staten Island that was very interesting.” Either way, as one Facebook user put it on Brannan’s page, “This is getting good.” “This very well may become Bay Ridge’s answer to Bigfoot,” the pol added. “I’m confident it will boost tourism. T-shirts and refrigerator magnets are imminent.”

ndustry City is adding more diversity to its growing list of eateries. On Sat., Nov. 24, the massive waterfront complex officially welcomed Japan Village, a 20,000-squarefoot authentic Japanese marketplace featuring a specialty grocer, food stalls, a Japanese pub/restaurant/ cocktail bar known as an izakaya, and a liquor store. Owners Tony and Takuya Yoshida said they want to provide visitors with an authentic and traditional Japanese village square experience. “Our goal is to share everything we love about Japan with our local community in a fun and authentic way,” said Tony Yoshida. “Working with Industry City allows us to provide a space where anyone can immerse themselves in Japanese culture through traditional foods, interactive seminars, and family-friendly events. We want to further spread the culture here and highlight all 47 of Japan’s prefectures, especially ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.”

Scenes from Industry City’s soon-to-be-open Japan Village. Among the highlights of the village will be a grocery called Sunrise Market; the food stalls with a variety of authentic Japanese vendors; Izakaya restaurant and cocktail bar Wakuwaku; and Japanese liquor store Kuraichi. The new village is joining the roster of food-related businesses at Industry City that includes Burger Joint, Avocaderia, Ends Meat, Blue Marble Ice Cream, Ninja Bubble Tea, One Girl Cookie, Table87 Coal Oven Pizza, LiLac Chocolates, Frying Pan Brooklyn, Moore Brothers Wine, Brooklyn Kura and Filament at the Landing. Other members of

Industry City’s increasingly global culinary scene include Shanghainese

street food from Yaso Tangbao, family-style Thai food from Bangkok B.A.R.,

Director of Development at Industry City Jim Somoza is pleased with the latest addition. “As Industry City’s biggest foodie, it’s amazing to be part of developing a campus that’s exploding with opportunities for people to experience authentic cuisines from all over the world,” he said. “Japan Village will offer a one-of-akind opportunity for people

to immerse themselves in Japanese food and culture and all from the mind of one of the City’s pioneers in hospitality, Tony Yoshida.” According to Industry City, Sunrise Market will include a tofu market with homemade tofu, yuba and soymilk. The Japanese butcher shop operated by Japan Premium Beef will feature wagyu and washugyu beef. At the seafood market, shoppers can purchase fresh sushi and seafood. Wakuwaku will serve Japanese tapas, from grilled chicken skewers, to sashimi, to gyoza dumplings, and additional eats paired with specialty beverages. The cocktail bar will serve local craft beers and specialty cocktails. Japan Village’s liquor store, Kuraichi, will exclusively feature alcohol from Japan with a focus on sake, Japanese whisky and wine. The food stalls will feature 11 vendors, including Obentoyasan, Café Japon, Mika N’ Momo, Hachi, Setagaya, Gohei, Moriya, Shokusaido, Brooklyn Steak & Lobster and Omakase Sushi. Japan Village, 934 Third Avenue, will be open from 11 a.m.- 7 p.m. daily.

Developer Planning 30-Story Structure at Former Haym Salomon Site BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

vacant Bensonhurst lot that community leaders have called an eyesore will be empty no more now that a developer has obtained building permits to construct a high-rise apartment house at the site. The developer, a company called LandPex, is constructing a 30-story, mixed-use building at 1625 Shore Parkway after having secured the necessary permits from the New York City Department of Buildings. NewYorkYimby.com was the first to report that LandPex had obtained permits for the building. A sign posted at the walled-off construction site lists the property owner as Cropsey Partners LLC, a company based in Flushing. The sign also contains an architect’s rendering of the new building showing commercial space on the first floor with apartments

on the floors above. Longtime Bensonhurst residents might remember that the property formerly housed the Haym Salomon Nursing Home. The nursing home’s front entrance faced Cropsey Avenue, around the corner from Shore Parkway. In the1980s and 1990s, Community Board 11 held its monthly meetings at the Haym Salomon Home, according to Marnee Elias-Pavia, the board’s district manager. In recent years, the community board has conducted its business at the Bensonhurst Center for Rehabilitation and Healthcare at 1740 84th St. The construction site, which stretches from Shore Parkway to Cropsey Avenue, is located next door to the current site of the nursing home, now called the Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation. The nursing home moved next door to its current location at 2340

Cropsey Ave. approximately a dozen years ago. Neighborhood residents will be relieved to see the start of construction at 1625 Shore Parkway, Elias-Pavia predicted. “That lot was an eyesore for many years,” she told this newspaper. At 30 stories, the new building will be the tallest structure in the neighborhood by far, according to Elias-Pavia. “Most of the buildings in the area are, at the most, 10 stories tall. If you have an apartment on an upper floor in the new building, the view will probably be amazing,” she said. Hill West Architects is the firm designing the 278,344-square-foot building at 1625 Shore Parkway, NewYorkYimby. com reported.When it is completed, the building will have 243 apartments and 165 enclosed parking spaces. Construction is expected

A chain link fence and high wooden walls keep pedestrians from entering the construction site at 1625 Shore Parkway. A sign posted on the wall of the construction site displays an architect’s rendering of the building. to be completed in the fall of 2020. The property is located a few blocks away from the Ceasar’s Bay Shopping Center at 8949 Bay Parkway

and just three blocks from Bensonhurst Park, a popular recreation area on the corner of Bay Parkway and Cropsey Avenue. The new apartment house will match in height the Avalon Brooklyn Bay, a 30-story-residential development at 1501 Voorhies Ave. in Sheepshead Bay. That building, which is located

next to the Sheepshead Bay Road subway station on the Q/B lines, boasts 180 apartments. Bensonhurst community leaders are hoping the Shore Park way building will help ease a housing crunch in the neighborhood. Community Board 11 has seen a population boom in recent years, Elias-Pavia said. “We have a large number of residents move into our community,” she told this newspaper. Many community leaders have expressed concern, however, about the possibility that the city’s infrastructure won’t be able to keep up with the increasing numbers of residents. “We need to have the appropriate level of services, including sanitation, transportation, police and fire.

NYU-Langone Hospital-Brooklyn Uses Gaming to Heal Stroke Patients BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

P

ower up! Fun and games are being used to bring patients back to health at NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn. The Sunset Park-based facility is taking rehabilitation to the next step with its new gamification programs that are used to rehabilitate post-stroke patients, including some interactive fitness devices that test balance. NYU Langone and the Department of Neurology and Rehabilitation are using the video game-esque programs to help rehab patients 18 and over in an intuitive and fun way that leaves patients feeling accomplished. Vice President of Neurology and Rehabilitation for NYU Langone Hospital– Brooklyn Vincent Cavallaro talked to this paper about the program.

“Part of rehabilitation prior to this had to do with repetitive task training,” he said. “Then we had the opportunity to get the patients more engaged in their therapy process. For patients who had limited motion in either their arm or leg, there was a device able to supplement some of the range of motion to allow movement to occur so that the patient actually relearns the movement.” After the hospital became a joint commissioned accredited stroke site, Cavallaro and company realized that they wanted to enhance the treatment for patients. “We have this BIT (Bioness Integrated Therapy) system, which is really like a gaming board that patients use to improve their cognitive skills as well as their balance performance,” he said. The following year, the hospital purchased a Korebalance system which has a computer screen similar to what one might see in a

ST. MARY’S CHURCH TO HOLD ANNUAL CHRISTMAS BOUTIQUE BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@ BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

F

or over 25 years St. Mary’s Antiochian Church on 81st Street and Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge has held its Christmas Boutique, signaling the beginning of the holiday season. The boutique has become a community event that celebrates the Christmas season while promoting the Bay Ridge shopkeepers that have contributed to the event. This year’s event will take place on Sat., Dec. 1 in St. Mary’s Couri Hall from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There will be a drawing of special gift baskets containing gift certificates and merchandise donated by the shopkeepers, as well as a Sahadi holiday basket of treats, and baskets of cheer. The drawing will be held on Sat., Dec. 1 and the winner need not be present.

“Everyone should come prepared to shop for the holidays,” said event organizer Gale Zarr. “This year’s boutique features Regency Christmas ornaments and decorations, poinsettias, linens, jewelry, antiques, collectibles, children’s items, housewares, books, a 50/50 raffle and much more. The Saint Mary’s Ladies Club cheerfully sponsors the annual event which will benefit the renovation of the church.” In addition, the event will feature Santa’s Workshop where each child taking a photo with Santa will receive a free gift. There will be a café to enjoy lunch and delicious homemade pastries and desserts. Saint Mary’s talented bakers will donate their mouthwatering baked goods again this year. Admission is free. All proceeds will help with the St. Mary’s Church restoration project.

gym that makes the therapy more interactive. “As you see in more exercise equipment today, you become part of the environment that you’re working in or exercising in so it’s reproduced at a lower level for patients with disabilities,” Cavallaro said. “There’s greater buy-in from the patients because they’re competing against themselves and the machine and they’re trying to stay on course. And, by staying on course, essentially they’re learning to restore some of the function that they lost.” According to the National Stroke Association, 10 percent of people who have had a stroke recover almost completely, with 25 percent recovering with minor impairments. Thanks to these devices, patients in a wide age range were able to use virtual reality to aid in their recovery, relearning skills lost due to the stroke. Cavallaro cited a program on the KoreBalance that utilizes a ski slope, with patients required to stay on the trail, avoiding trees

Susan Chan using the Armeo device with Heather Wesson, senior occupational therapist at NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn. and flags.“You are represented, in this particular game, by a penguin,” he said. “Patients stand on a platform and just minor changes in weight-bearing status or minor changes in balance allow the penguin to shift right or left. When you think about walking or standing, these minor changes in your balance enable you to stay erect, so that reinforces your balance retraining and allows you to walk more safely than if I were to teach you how to sit, stand from a mat, pick up one leg, pick up the

other leg.” The reception has been positive once patients get used to the regimen. “With KoreBalance, patients are a little nervous at first but a therapist is usually on the device with them, not standing on the balance board, but standing behind them,” he said. “Once they get the feel of a little success on that trail, each day they kind of look forward to it.” As far as the BIT machine, patients play against themselves but aim for a higher score. By doing that, Cavallaro said, they are able able

to measure their cognitive changes from when they were admitted to discharge. The machine, Cavallaro said, provides evidence, “To show that because of that training, they are getting better. The same thing with the ambulation status — we can measure what level they came in at and how their ambulation has improved,” Cavallaro said. Other systems used at the hospital include the Armeo Spring and the Flint Rehab Glove. Going forward, Cavallaro said, the hospital is looking to acquire additional machines that can enhance therapy, such as “a treadmill that the patient walks along, maybe the base varies a bit, and the patient has to keep up with a trail or a path or some other course to keep them engaged," he said. These, he added, take “partial weight bearing devices” a step further, making the activity “much more purposeful. They’ll have their body weight supported so they can focus not on the bike buckling or falling but on the actual ambulation and key training.”

Turkey Raffle Ups the Ante for CB 10 Members’ Donation to Local Food Pantry BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

C

ommunity Board 10 got into the giving spirit on Mon., Nov. 19 when its members doubled down on the group’s annual donation to a local food pantry. Each November, the board – which represents the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights – asks its members to bring non-perishable food items to its general meeting to be donated to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry at St. Patrick’s. The donations are made each year in memory of former board member Helen Sokoloski. Jim and Mary Beth Lamond attended the meeting – held at the Fort Hamilton Senior Center, 9941 Fort

Hamilton Parkway – to discuss the yearly donation’s impact on those the pantry serves. “We’ve been coming here for a very, very long time – probably well over 10 years,” Jim told the room. “I can’t remember exactly when but I know exactly why – because Helen Sokoloski called my wife Mary Beth and said, ‘We’re interested in helping you.’” Now, years later, the board continues to carry her torch. “I’m here to thank you for your help,” Jim said. “Every year, we bring in some food and some money, which, of course, is also helpful.” But, thanks to one of the nabe’s newest elected officials – and the group’s goodwill – the couple ended up walking away with even more than they’d expected.

Norwegian Christian Home Celebrates its Centenarians BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

While the Beatles sang about what life would be like “When I’m 64,” the Norwegian Christian Home and Health Center is singing the praises of three remarkable residents who are over 100. Earlier this fall, the center, located at 1250 67th St. in Dyker Heights, recognized three centenarians with a luncheon attended by their famiebrooklyn media/Photos by Arthur De Gaeta

Both elected officials presented the honorees with certificates of merit for a life well-lived. Italian born Anthony Fabietti, who turned 100 on Sept. 4, said he could remember back to 1924 when his father first came to America. Fabietti and his mother came to join him in 1930. Fabietti’s first job was as a tailor and his motto has always been to work and be happy. He was joined by his girlfriend Gloria and daughter-in-law Luann Fabietti. He attributed the secret of his longevity to having peace of mind and said the most fascinating

He is a wonderful and caring man who is very devoted to his family and children. He’s an avid checkers player and we love listening to his stories and are very blessed to have him.”

Borghild Nesheim was born in Norway on Dec. 13, 1917. She said she still fondly remembers her childhood growing up in Norway. She recalled riding her bicycle and milking cows on her family’s farm. Esther Lillian Thompson was the most senior citizen of the group, having celebrated her 105th birthday on March 22. She said she considered it a great privilege

to live to be over 100 and attributed her long-life to having faith in the Lord. “It’s great to participate in this,” said Abbate, “This will be my fifth year giving Esther Thompson a citation. Hopefully, she has them all up in her room.” Golden thanked the seniors for all the contributions they’ve made to their families and their community. “It’s not every

Home and Health Center was founded in Brooklyn in 1903 by a group of residents who cared for a small group of elderly women, according to the center’s website. In 1911, the group broadened its mission to admit men also. It welcomes patients of all faiths and backgrounds.

Toys collected will be donated to various local organizations across the 64th Assembly District. “Our toy drive is one of my favorite events of the year,” Malliotakis said.  “The generosity and kindness exhibited by the community is truly amazing, and has only increased since our first toy drive back in 2010. I look forward to working with some of our local organizations once again to spread some holiday cheer!” Donors are encouraged to drop off unwrapped toys until Fri., Dec. 14 at the following Brooklyn locations: Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church, 8401 Ridge Blvd. Salam Arabic Lutheran Church, 414 80th St. Dimitrios & Georgia Kaloidis (DGK) Parochial School, 8502 Ridge Blvd. -JA

BRANNAN, TREYGER BLAST DOE OVER SNOWSTORM CANCELLATIONS The snow that fell on Nov. 15 has long since melted, but it looks like the controversy over what many have termed the city’s lack of preparedness will linger for a long time. Councilmembers Justin Brannan (D-Bay RidgeDyker Heights-parts of Bensonhurst) and Mark Treyger (D-Coney Island-Gravesend-parts of Bensonhurst) have both blasted the Department of Education (DOE) over cancellations of after-school programs the day after the snowstorm. DOE announced the cancellation of the programs at 8 a.m. on Nov. 16, according to Brannan, who said the late notice gave parents no time to make alternate arrangements for their children. Brannan and Treyger, who is the chairperson of the council’s Education Committee, jointly issued a statement. “The city failed our students and parents twice in less than 24 hours: First, by failing to plan appropriately for last Thursday’s storm, forcing children to sit idly on buses for hours and hours without communicating with families, and again on Friday, by cancelling after-school programs with barely any notice. This lack of communication and coordinating with families and students is simply unacceptable. Several inches of slush shouldn’t send our city and schools into complete chaos. Our city must plan accordingly for winter weather, and it’s crucial to keep families and parents informed,” the statement read. The two lawmakers also had a warning for the DOE. “This can’t happen again and we will do everything in our power to ensure that it doesn’t,” they stated. DOE officials issued a statement defending the decision. “We canceled field trips and afterschool activities to ensure safe, timely bus service for students going home from school today,” they said on Fri., Nov. 16. “After Thursday’s storm, we were concerned there would be significant delays if we continued with regular bus service, field trip bus service, and bus service for afterschool activities,” the statement read. – PK

BICHOTTE ISSUES STATEMENT ABOUT AMAZON HEADQUARTERS IN LONG ISLAND CITY Brooklyn Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte has issued a statement about Amazon headquarters building their new headquarters in Long Island City. Bichotte addressed the controversy surrounding the decision, explaing that even though the billion-dollar giant will be bringing jobs and opportunities to the area, she questioned the deal Gov. Cuomo had made giving the Amazon a $1.5 million tax credit, with no discussions or input from New York officials and community stakeholders before the deal was struck. “Although the intention of choosing our city was to bring economic opportunities, as a public official and as a New Yorker, I would have liked a healthy dialogue between us and Amazon of the effects that such a development will have on New York City,” said Bichotte. “Going forward, we are demanding a level of transparency and a plan for greater economic equity and inclusion,” she continued. “I am willing to sit down with Amazon to discuss and ensure that there are community benefit agreements, initiatives for diversity in leadership positions, and plans for preservation for worker’s rights.” Bichotte referenced other additions to the city that were approved before measures were taken such as Barclays in the 2010s, MetroTech in the 1990s and Lefrak in the 1970s.

Amazon’s second headquarters will be built in Long Island City.

“The effects of Long Island City’s designation by Amazon may be detrimental now that they have not been tempered by a preceding conversation about the lives this will affect,” Bichotte added. “We hope that we can have further discussion with Gov. Cuomo and Amazon about this deal and how to maximize equity for the city and for New Yorkers.” Bichotte also questioned the necessity of giving away billions in tax subsidies and whether 25,000 jobs would actually be created. - JA

ebrooklyn media/File photo by Arthur de Gaeta

Incoming attorney general Letitia James (left), pictured with Assemblymember Latrice Walker and Gov. Andrew Cuomo at a Democratic Party breakfast in September, is busy hiring staff for her office.

Ibrahim Khan, who worked with James during her days as New York City’s public advocate as her first deputy, will serve as the new attorney general’s chief of staff. Jennifer Levy, who currently works as the supervising attorney for the Civil Reform Unit of the Legal Aid Society, will serve in the attorney general’s office as chief deputy attorney general for social justice. Jose Maldonado, the former chief counsel to the New York City fire commissioner, has been appointed by James as chief deputy attorney general for criminal justice. “With decades of experience in government and the law, these three individuals will bring unparalleled experience to the office and to the frontlines to protect all New Yorkers,” James said in a statement. In addition, James’s transition team has established a website to provide up-to-date information on the attorney general-elect’s plans. The website will also serve as a portal for people seeking jobs in the attorney general’s office. For more information, visit: www.transitiontishjames2018. com. – PK

CORNEGY DELIVERS THANKSGIVING TURKEYS Councilmember Robert Cornegy, Jr. teamed up with the ride-sharing service Lyft to make Thanksgiving more memorable for Brooklyn families. Cornegy (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant) and Lyft delivered 500 free turkeys to residents of Bedford-Stuyvesant and Northern Crown Heights on Nov. 20. “Thanksgiving is a time to give back and give thanks,” Cornegy said in a statement. “For the past five years I’ve had the privilege of serving the community in which I was raised, and the people here have given so much to me throughout my life. Thanks to the generosity of Lyft, I am grateful to be able to offer free turkeys to those residents in need.” Joseph Okpaku, vice president for public policy at Lyft, said the company was eager to help out. “We’re thrilled to partner with Councilmember Cornegy to distribute turkeys to those in need this Thanksgiving,” he said in a statement. Residents were able to sign up to receive a turkey by calling
