Golden Refuses to Concede in Contentious State Senate Race BY PAULA KATINAS & MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK
It may just be the end of an era. Republican State Sen. Marty Golden -- after a remarkable streak of good luck stretching back two decades -- is just over 1,100 votes behind his challenger, Democrat Andrew Gounardes, in the race in the 22nd Senate District. Election night appeared to bring Golden’s winning streak to an end. The retired New York City police officer entered politics in 1997 when he ran for Bay Ridge’s City Council seat and won. He ran for state Senate in 2002 and won again. Going into Tuesday, Golden had not lost an election in 21 years. And, while he has refused to concede, awaiting the counting of absentee and provisional ballots, Gounardes has claimed victory. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, according to unofficial results, Gounardes brought in 50.9 percent of the vote (31,168), with Golden receiving 49.1 percent (30,039). According to sources close to the election, there are approximately 1,500 absentee ballots still to be counted, and an unconfirmed amount of provisional votes left over from some of Tuesday’s notably backed-up polling sites. “We believe we have the opportunity to pull this out. There are 3,000 paper ballots out there,” Golden told crestfallen supporters at the Bay Ridge Manor, 476 76th St., late Tuesday night. “We are not done. We have a way to go,” he added. His camp, Wednesday morning, doubled down. “Senator Golden is not conceding, as we are assessing the ballot situation – machine and absentee – to ensure that every vote is counted,” Michael Tobman, Golden campaign spokesperson, confirmed. Meanwhile, Gounardes’ team is still riding the high of what they’re calling a definitive win, their celebration not just for the candidate, but for democracy as a whole. “There’s a new boss in town,” Councilmember Justin Brannan told Gounardes’s supporters at Cebu, 8801 Third Ave., before midnight. “The boss is not me or Max [Rose] or Andrew. The boss is you, the people, the people that made this happen. The power is back in your hands. You spoke loud and clear today, and you elected Andrew Gounardes as your state senator.” Gounardes, a lawyer, a local activist and an Eagle Scout, concurred. “The victory is not my victory. It is our victory. It’s our community’s victory,” he told the crowd. “We are going to have leadership in south Brooklyn that speaks for our community.” Golden, on the other hand, took a moment to reflect on election night, perhaps sensing that his long political career was coming to an end. “I have had the ability to have a great life,” he said as he mentioned his wife Colleen and their sons, Michael and Patrick. As the night wore on, supporters and members of Golden’s senate staff frantically checked their cell phones to navigate websites to see if they could get more information on the Golden-Gounardes race. Many shook their heads in dismay as they looked at the numbers. “This was a tough night,” New York State Conservative Party Chairperson Mike Long told this newspaper on his way out the door. Golden repeatedly pointed to his record in the Senate during the campaign, boasting that he’s brought back millions of dollars
ŶĚƌĞǁ'ŽƵŶĂƌĚĞƐƐƉĞĂŬŝŶŐĂƚĞďƵ͘ in funding to the district for senior citizen centers, schools and other projects, and has sponsored outdoor concerts in parks and mobile labs for mammograms. However, in recent months, he has been at the center of a variety of controversies, including dust-ups over speed cameras in school zones and, most recently, a flap over the fact that one of his campaign staffers had invited the leader of the Proud Boys, an alt right group, to speak at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Republican Club. Gounardes, who on the campaign trail and in debates with Golden sought to portray himself as a change agent who would bring much-needed new ideas to Albany, was seen Wednesday morning thanking voters at the 77th Street subway station. His proposals include appointing a rider to represent subway passengers on the Metropolitan Transportation Board, creating a waterfront park in Bay Ridge, establishing a GI Bill for senior citizens who might want to go back to college or train for a new profession and awarding tax credits to people who serve as caregivers to ailing family members. Boasting a long history of civic involvement, Gounardes is a former member of CB 10 and a co-founder of Bay Ridge Cares, a non-profit group that assisted homeowners hard hit by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and has raised money for various
charitable efforts. Gounardes also founded two transportation-related organizations. He formed the group Concerned R Train Riders to demand handicap-accessible subway stations in Southwest Brooklyn and is a founder of Bay Ridge Advocates for Keeping Everyone Safe (B.R.A.K.E.S.), a group fighting for speed cameras in all New York City school zones. He campaigned while on leave from his post as chief counsel to Borough President Eric Adams and had received endorsements from a bevy of citywide unions, as well as the United Federation of Teachers, Planned Parenthood, The New York Times and even the Reform Party. “I supported Marty Golden in each of his past elections but knew his time was up this year,” said Bob Capano, the party’s Brooklyn chairperson in a statement. “It is time to turn the page and move forward in our community with new leadership in Albany and Andrew is the right person.” On election night, Gounardes assured supporters that, though “there is so much left to do,” the future is bright. “Tonight is a victory for the voiceless,” added Brannan. “Every single one of you took the future by the ear and you said, ‘The time is now.’” The district includes Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach, Gravesend, Marine Park and Gerritsen Beach.

THE DAY AFTER As of this writing, the Sunday night before the election, I have no idea what the turnout or the results will look like that will affect the state and federal government for the next two years. What I do know is that there were many hard-fought battles this year. There was a lot of money spent throughout the nation, which I guess you can at least argue was good for the economy albeit annoying to many who did ϐǦ eight pieces of mail. Bending the truth and sometimes outright lying about an opponent’s record was once again a mainstay of campaigns and practiced by
both parties. In fact, it seems to me, after being involved in campaigns for over 40 years, that, as the saying goes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The one thing that has become part of the political landscape in the past few years is the liberal use of fabricated attacks on the associates of candidates with the hope of taking down the person through a guilt-by-association argument. My sense is that these libelous actions will see a ϐ in hopes of damages or at least apologies. Hopefully, outright character assassination once again practiced

country, is not punctuated with a barbecue or some other family gathering. Thus, it can get lost in what for many is a shopping day. Please do not allow this to happen in your family.

Golden Honors the Man Who Found The Missing “Z” In Verrazzano By John Alexander firstname.lastname@example.org
For Dyker Heights resident Robert Nash, correcting the spelling of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge became an all-consum-
ing mission. He wanted to honor the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano by having an extra “z” added to his name as it appears on signs and maps of the bridge. Nash sought out state Senators Marty Golden and Andrew Lanza for their help,
along with Assemblymember Michael Cusick. They were able to sponsor the needed legislation that was ultimately signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Oct. 11 of this year. On Saturday, Nov. 3, Golden presented Nash with an official copy of the legislation correcting the spelling as signed by Cuomo, at a ceremony held at the Brooklyn entrance to the Verrazzano. Nash was thrilled to receive the “pen certificate” containing the pen Cuomo used to sign the bill into law. “I felt that it was the right thing to do to make the correction since we knew that his name had been misspelled for all these years,” Nash told this paper. Nash initially presented the proposal to correct the spelling as an online petition that sparked Golden to help sponsor the legislation. “I am proud of Robert, who calls our com-
munity home and lives in Dyker Heights, and who founded the Italian-American Society at his alma mater Saint Francis College,” Golden said. Golden called the bridge “an architectural gem and one of New York’s landmarks.” He also noted that “Italian-American historians are quick to explain that the spelling applies only to the bridge and is believed to be a typographical error that stuck.” He added that the entrance signs to both sides of the bridge will be changed immediately with other signs corrected as needed depending on wear and tear. He also called it one of the most expensive bridges in the country and pledged that he would pursue a future petition to lower the cost of the bridge tolls. Interestingly, Nash’s grandfather was a builder who worked on the bridge that opened more than 50 years ago on Nov. 21, 1964.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey
Thank You, Marty & Colleen Golden For Three Decades of Superb Civic, Community Service in Bay Ridge For more than 30 years, state Sen. Marty Golden and wife Colleen have worked for and helped to achieve a healthier and a more livable Bay Ridge by creating and/or sustaining vital traditions like the Ragamuffin Parade, the Greater Bay Ridge Clean-Up Campaign, the Bay Ridge Community Council with its art and essay contests for children and significant civic award program, the Friday night Summer Stroll on 3rd program and a host of other events. These endeavors are part and parcel of the fact that Bay Ridge is regarded citywide to be the best neighborhood in which to raise a family. Perhaps the most defining moment in the Goldens’ career came in the first three days after the 9-11 terror attacks when he — a former NYPD officer — was serving as councilmember. Based on his own experience as a first responder and owner of a catering business, Golden converted his Third Avenue office into a staging and shipping center, encouraging restaurants and individuals to provide food and other supplies, then enlisting volunteer drivers who came in from as far away as North Carolina to load cars and trucks to transport the critically needed supplies to “the pile” at Ground Zero, where other first responders were risking their lives to deal with the catastrophe. The Goldens, working with staffers John Quaglione, Jerry Kassar, Pat Logue, Mike Behlen, friends and other first responders, sent hundreds of truckloads of food and medical supplies to an off-loading garage on Peck’s Slip, where NYPD and FDNY personnel would take them the last few hundred yards to their comrades. Golden’s achievements – first as a police
officer, then as owner of the Bay Ridge Manor, where he would host scores of community group meetings at no cost, then in the City Council, and finally as a dynamic and respected state senator – set him aside from any leader (political, civic or otherwise) in the history of modern Bay Ridge. He was so effective and resourceful that he ran unopposed to win two of his eight terms.
Despite Terrible Wounds of 9/11, Golden and Leaders Worked On Unifying All Groups
When the Twin Towers crumbled in a foaming mass of metal, concrete and humanity on Sept. 11, 2001, the aftershock hit Bay Ridge with particular and persistent furor. Hundreds from this area perished and thousands more mourned the loss of family, loved ones and friends. Numerous streets here have been memorialized with the names of victims. Prior to 9/11, relations between the sizeable Muslim-Arab community and Greater Bay Ridge had been fairly stable. This unity was due, in significant part, to the outreach of Golden, who was then the president of the Fifth Avenue Board of Trade, and key contributions from Habib Joudeh, Dr. Husam Rimawi, Dr. Ahmed Jaber, then-U.S. Rep. Susan Molinari, civic activist Larry Morrish, Bill Boshell, Jack Malone, Irene Hanvey, Bob Howe and many more who joined together in communitywide clean-ups and other bonding activities. In the immediate aftermath, leaders of the Bay Ridge Mosque, along with officeholders such as Golden and Councilmember Vincent Gentile, Mike Long, Fran Vella Marrone, John Logue, then-District Attorney Charles Hynes, Joudeh, Morrish, Quaglione and civic
Community leaders (and, later, Bay Ridge Unity Task Force members) Charles Otey, Marty Golden, Rev. Khader El-Yateem and the late Larry Morrish came together in the 1990s for a series of community cleanups. Photos courtesy of Charles Otey leaders of all religious and civic persuasions came together to form the Bay Ridge Unity Task Force. More than a score of Bay Ridgeites — including leader Kayla Santosuosso — attended the task force sessions and it grew to involve representatives of all religious faiths, winning the support of the chaplaincy at the Fort Hamilton Army Base.. One of the early backers of the task force was the Rev. Khader El-Yateem, the Palestinian-American pastor of the Salam Arabic Lutheran Church.
El-Yateem, Morrish, Golden Worked to Sustain Task Force
El-Yateem served the parish and the Bay Ridge community well and his clerical collar doubtless enabled him to win the support of those here who continued to harbor ill, but misplaced, feelings for all Muslims after the 9/11 terror attacks. The task force had its ups and downs over the years, but its leaders, especially ElYateem, Quaglione, Morrish and his wife Phillipa, still worked hard for unity by bringing in a wider and wider circle of adherents in significant community organizations. The death of Morrish three years ago stunned the task force and the community. He
Capitalizing on his NYPD and catering backgrounds, then-Councilmember Marty Golden (left) organized a “Food to the Workers on the 9/11 Pile” effort that helped send tons of food and other necessities to first responders working at Ground Zero. Volunteers from as far away as the Carolinas drove up to his office on Third Avenue to join in the convoys. At far right is NYPD Lt. James Woods.
had the unique ability to bring divergent groups together in common cause. One of his most successful events was the Greater Bay Ridge Clean-Up, which was sponsored more than once by the Bay Ridge Islamic Society. Scores of kids from the 69th Street mosque, joined by a thousand volunteers, scoured surrounding streets and removed graffiti, working with Rimawi, Howe, Joudeh and Long, all with the full support of Sen. Golden, who earlier had served as the president and rejuvenator of the Fifth Avenue Board of Trade. Unfortunately, the task force lost El-Yateem, who, after an impressive but unsuccessful quest for a City Council seat, left Bay Ridge to assume new responsibilities in Florida. Some of his followers say they were responding to the cleric’s parting wish in forming the Yalla Brooklyn political club with what seems to me to be its all-out, often vicious, campaign against Sen. Golden. Some of the tactics were riven with hate and lies laced with innuendo, in my opinion. At a recent meeting, one narrow-minded man who is a stranger to Bay Ridge exclaimed, “Everyone here hates Marty Golden!” Sadly, some newspapers and websites – even an NPR writer – picked up on this calumny (we suggest the NPR writer get a talking-to by WNYC President Laura Walker), repeating the slander and even embellishing it to proclaim, “Arabs and Jews Hate Marty Golden.” When he is sworn in as state senator, Andrew Gounardes will have a chance to work toward unity and help to bring back the Bay Ridge Unity Task Force. It must be composed of leaders from all segments of the Greater Bay Ridge community, including those who have already served. Councilmember Justin Brannan and Assemblymembers Nicole Malliotakis and Mathylde Frontus must also be included. Most likely, we will not soon see another “Marty Golden,” i.e., a man or woman with as much relevant experience and so many varying talents who is willing to enter public life with all its hazards in an age when an anonymous internet hack can say and spread the vilest of outright lies about anyone without fear of retribution — or even discovery. But, Senator-to-be Gounardes has had a chance to see how our communities here work together and how we prize our traditions, which unify us regardless of faith, ethnic background or political partisanship. A lawyer, he has a reputation for decency and fairness. Will he denounce — then purge from the ranks — those who have uttered and spread false, hate-provoking claims about his opponent? Will he reach out or will he close ranks and embrace his backers while excluding those who have opposed him? We’ll see.

“We won!” Those were the first words shouted by Democrat Max Rose addressing supporters after learning that he had defeated incumbent Republican Rep.
Dan Donovan in the 11th Congressional District race. A huge group of supporters screamed for joy as they gathered at the Vanderbilt at South Beach, 300 Father Capodanno Blvd. in Staten Island on Tue., Nov. 6 as Rose, an Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, won the seat of the district that includes all of
Staten Island and a swath of Brooklyn from Bay Ridge to Gravesend. The congressional seat has been held by a Republican since the early 1980s, except for a two-year span in 2008-2010, when it was occupied by former City Councilmember Michael McMahon. Two years later, McMahon lost the seat to Grimm, who was succeeded

Donovan. Grimm resigned in 2015 after pleading guilty to tax fraud. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, unoﬃcial results had Rose with 52.6 percent of the vote (93,762) and Donovan with 47.1 percent (83,925). The Green Party candidate, Henry Bardel, had .4 percent of the vote (677). At around 9 p.m., the lights in the venue dimmed as Rose’s chances seemed remote. Donovan took a ﬁve percent lead with just 31 percent of the ballots counted. However, at 9:25 p.m., with 48 percent of precincts reporting, Rose took a slim 0.6 percent lead. The crowd screamed in jubilation as their candidate rarely relinquished the lead throughout the rest of the night. “462 days ago, we launched this campaign to do things differently,” he told supporters after thanking his challenger, family, friends and team. “We weren’t just trying to win votes in Staten Island and South Brooklyn. We were trying to earn people’s trust. We wanted to show the country that you don’t need special interest or you don’t need lobbyists. You just need the people. In fact, they can keep their damn money.” In a district with more registered Democrats than Republicans that yet went for Trump in 2016, Rose combined a compelling message with a lot of good, old-fashioned hard work to eke out a victory, ousting the Republican — who won the seat in a special election in May, 2015. “The pundits laughed at
us when we said, ‘they all got to go.’ They laughed at us, but they didn’t get the point,” Rose said. “The point is that we were never in this to win an election. We were in this to change politics irrevocably. The story of this country has always been that, no matter our diﬀerences, no matter the challenges in our way, we do what others said was impossible. They said this was impossible. But it’s country that matters. That’s what built this nation. That’s why everyone — including cops and ﬁremen and teachers and vets and nurses — all wake up and get the job done. What do you say we bring that to Washington D.C.?” When speaking to the press, Rose discussed how he believes he pulled oﬀ his victory. “The key (to this victory) was earning people’s trust,” he said. “You can’t do this with a shiny commercial or with money in the last 72 hours of a campaign. You go door to door, community to community. That’s how we won, and more importantly, that’s how we are going to eﬀectively govern.” Towards the end of his speech, he discussed the work that has to be done. “Tonight, we party but tomorrow, we get to work. The politicians who said that seat is not winnable, said, ‘That’s cute what you’re doing knocking on doors,’ but those folks cannot ignore us anymore because we are going to D.C. together,” he said. “We are going to make sure that our loved ones in the throes of addiction get the treatment that they
need, hell or high water. We are going to build an America where no child is ever afraid of gun violence in their school. We are going to build an America where no one ever gets murdered because of the god they pray to.” For Donovan, the evening started out on an up-note with a stop at the Bay Ridge Manor to greet Brooklyn supporters at 8:15 p.m. He then headed to Prive, a restaurant and catering hall on Annadale Road in Staten Island. He addressed the crowd following his disappointing defeat, conceding just after 10 p.m. “I just got oﬀ the phone with Max Rose and I asked him to do a good job for my family and yours. And he promised me that he would,” he said. So I congratulated him on a hard-fought victory. But it has been an amazing ride. For the last 22 years, my entire adult life, it’s been an honor and a privilege and something I will never forget. And I will never forget you for giving me this opportunity. I look at this as the end of something I’ve enjoyed very much.” The incumbent said that he and his family would take a trip to Florida where he will decide what the next chapter of his life will be. He also stated that his partner Serena and his daughter Aniella Rose had made sacriﬁces and told his supporters that he wanted to thank them from the bottom his heart. “Sincerely, thank you,” he said. “You have given me the opportunity of a lifetime and I will treasure it always.”

Malliotakis Might Be the Last Republican Representing Any Part of Brooklyn BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
he Blue Wave swept over the former Republican strongholds of Southern Brooklyn and Staten Island, taking with it U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan and, potentially, state Sen. Marty Golden, and likely leaving Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis the last Republican representing any part of Brooklyn. Malliotakis, whose 64th Assembly District spans portions of Staten Island and Bay Ridge, was able to hold on to her Assembly seat. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, results showed Malliotakis with 59.3 percent of the vote (19,606), and her Democratic opponent, Adam Baumel, with 38.3 percent (12,656). Malliotakis, a graduate of Wagner College, has served in the New York State Assembly since 2011. She ran on the Republican, Conservative, Independent

Socceroof in Sunset Park Officially Opens By Jaime DeJesus INBrooklyn
It’s goal in Sunset Park! The neighborhood’s newest sporting facility, Socceroof, celebrated its official grand opening on Wednesday, November 1. The event, held at Socceroof’s brand new space at the Whale Building, 14 53rd Street, featured a cocktail party and plenty of surprises for lucky guests. General Manager of the spacious facility Jonathan Lupinelli discussed how the dream came to fruition. According to Lupinelli, the idea for the facility, “came from the minds of two French entrepreneurs, Jean-David Tartour and Jerome Meary.” It was Tartour, Lupinelli said, who started the business in France 10 years ago, growing it to 29 locations before crossing the Atlantic for the company’s U.S. debut, right in Sunset Park. “This is our flagship,” he told this paper. “Our first facility is here in New York because we wanted to start in the main city in the United States. We found an amazing space that goes beyond soccer. We have the view of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty. This is a place where the soccer community can mingle, and it goes beyond being just a soccer field.” The 70,000-square-foot space includes 10 fields named after Brooklyn neighborhoods, such as Sunset Park, Bay Ridge and Red Hook; changing rooms; a high-end sports bar; multiple bigscreen TVs and a rooftop with unobstructed panoramic waterfront views of Manhattan. The theme is set at the facility’s entrance, where the walls are filled with a display of international soccer jerseys. While the company scouted a variety of locations, Lupinelli said that Sunset Park offered the best opportunities for the group. “Brooklyn was attractive because the community is very responsive to soccer. This space was the perfect fit and we couldn’t imagine a better location to get started,” he said, mentioning the diversity of the neighborhood. “That’s definitely one of the reasons we decided to start here. Sunset Park is an extremely diverse neighborhood with a huge passion for soccer.” The project began over a year ago. Construction took almost six months. “Our soft opening was on September 4,” Lupinelli said. “We’ve organized a lot of events, tournaments, and we’ve brought the soccer community to check out the space, but tonight is the big launch. The real adventure starts tonight.” The reception thus far has been very positive. “This is an incredible feeling after months and months of hard
Kids on a soccer field at Socceroof. work,” Lupinelli said. “We’ve been open for two months and really feel supported. We feel there’s a great interest and demand for our space. To have the official opening tonight is an incredible feeling.” Lupinelli started playing soccer when he was four years old. He went on to play professionally in Spain and France before coming to the United States where he went to school and worked for Major League Soccer in New York. “That’s when the two owners reconnected with me. One of them was my agent when I was a player,” he said. “It was just a perfect match and I was hired as general manager of the facility.” Lupinelli said he was excited to give the borough a facility it hasn’t seen before and make the sport of soccer more accessible

for everyone, including kids. “We are open to everyone,” he said. “I think the main objective of this facility is to offer easy access for everyone in the community and New York City in general. “Especially in the winter,” he said, “it’s very difficult to find a place to play and I think with this we’ve brought something that is necessary in New York. “The goal of this place is to bring everyone together from professionals to people who don’t know soccer that well but want to learn and exercise,” Lupinelli went on. “People can rent a field for just an hour, come with a group of friends, parents can bring their kids, have a good time, and enjoy playing the game. There are a lot of possibilities.” For more information, visit www.socceroof.com.

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.

Theatre Marinefor Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope By John Alexander INBROOKLYN
Optical Sets its Sight on Bay Ridge
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 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; a mother and her son have 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.

Mitch Nagib is a man with a mission. He’s been wearing glasses since he was seven years Photos by Jarrett Scott old and decided that he would devote his career to helping people find the perfect eyewear to make them feel the most comfortable and attractive. “When I got my first pair of eyeglasses it was State. Sen. Marty Golden presents Mitch Nagib with a proclamation upon the grand opening of Marine Optical. Pictures with family EBrooklyn Media photos by Amanda Innace the first time I could actually see,” he told this and friends. paper. “I remember sitting in the eye doctor’s office on Kings Highway and the moment he put the glasses on me, I could actually see across the street.” That episode changed Mitch’s life as he became fascinated with learning about vision and decided he wanted to help people acclimate themselves to wearing glasses. “It became interesting to me how a little piece of glass could literally change the outlook of your world,” he 14INB • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of June 14-20, 2018 said. Mitch’s belief was that if a person removes his or her glasses, it changes that person’s perception of the world. As a result, at Marine Optical, a new store he recently opened at 9714 Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge, Nagib wants to make eyewear an asset, both in fashion and function ability. “Not being able to see is a handicap,” said Nagib. “It can prevent you from driving or reading; it can prevent you from doing anything. And we turn that disability into something fashionable.” He cites his mother as an example. “Before I opened my store, they charged her $1,600 for Congressional candidate Max Rose attends the ribbon-cutting ceremony at Marine Optical. her glasses. She has very bad eyesight. So she had what they call Coke-bottle lenses. The lenses they gave her were extremely thick and unattractive. So she refused to wear her glasses.” Mitch wanted to remedy this and took it upon himself to create sleeker and more attractive eyewear for her. “I was able to get the lenses to be the same thickness as the frame,” he said. “We can do that. A lot of stores won’t do that because it costs too much and they demand an upcharge. I don’t really care; I just want people to be happy with their eyeglasses. I know that if people are happy they will keep returning and bring their friends.” With his goal of wanting to help remedy people’s reluctance to wear unfashionable eyewear, Marine Optical is a dream come true for him. It is currently using an accredited lab with licensed technicians crafting diamond-cut, stateof-the-art digital lenses. Marine Optical also does contact lenses and what Mitch calls, “a lot of cool stuff.” People would come to him and ask him to fix their sunglasses, so he started making custom sunglass lenses, including custom tints. “Recently, I had a woman come in who had a pair of Ray-Bans with a pink tint that she really loved,” he said. We were able to put in the same color-mirror tint with prescription lenses. Nobody else does that.” Nagib is no stranger to the community. He was born and raised in the neighborhood, went to P.S. 104 and Fort Hamilton High School, and graduated from the College of Staten Island. He has lived his whole life in Bay Ridge. For anyone looking for the perfect eyewear, Marine Optical is certainly a sight for sore eyes. It digitally cuts all lenses, and offers customizable repairing, replacements for eyeglasses and sunglasses, and a price match guarantee. Marine also offers free lifetime repairs on all purchases.

Atta-Boy, Giamboi: LET US TELL YOUR STORY Columbian Lawyers Remember We can even reach backseat multi-taskers Justice Joseph Giamboi BY ROB ABRUZZESE ROB@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
oseph Giamboi, former New York state Supreme Court Justice and one of the early founders of the Columbian Lawyers Association, died on Sept. 27. Mass was held at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Thursday, Oct. 4 and Vito Cannavo, past president of the Columbian Lawyers Association of Brooklyn, also shared a few words about the judge at a recent meeting. “His wake was truly a sad occasion,” Cannavo said. “He lived a full and distinguished life of public service.” Cannavo remembered the judge, who most recently served in the Bronx after he took senior status, as a fair judge, who made people feel happy with his positive attitude — and his red Cadillac. “He was a decent and kind man, a generous guy who was happy when he made you happy,” Cannavo said. “There was always a smile on his face and a word of encouragement for anyone who greeted him. He had a great sense of humor. He was always smiling, laughing. He was a dapper dresser. You didn’t live until you took a ride with him in his big red Cadillac, flying along on the roads.” Giamboi, who was born in 1925, went to New York Law School prior to being admitted to the NYS Bar in 1955. He served as a Supreme Court judge from 1995 until 2004
and had a private practice for 40 years prior to joining the bench. “Truly we lost another of the greatest generation,” Cannavo said. “He lived through the depression, World War [II], he worked very hard to get where he was. He showed us what true grit and determination was really about. He’s truly a great American and I’m going to miss him.” Cannavo’s eulogy came at a Columbian Lawyers meeting on discrimination against Italian-Americans, which seemed appropriate as he recalled the judge’s efforts to build up the association. “He was one of the founding members of what the Columbian Lawyers [Association] was,” Cannavo said. “He was always involved because he liked to be the tremendous force that he was. He was a great supporter for everyone. He understood what this organization was about and how important it was for professionals of Italian-American descent to have a forum where they could feel welcome and get the support they needed to continue in this and profession.

The monumental head in the background is a INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan work called Leucantha by Philip Grausman.
BRIEF HISTORY: CLINTON HILL Clinton Hill has historically been a wealthy neighborhood with Romanesque mansions, classic Victorian rowhouses, Italian frame villas and pre-Civil War frame houses lining its streets. It was the highest ground in the area and part of a parcel of land acquired by the Dutch in the 1600s. In 1832, Clinton Avenue was laid out as a tree-lined boulevard along the crest of a hill and named for DeWitt Clinton, onetime mayor of the City of New York. And by
the 1840s, large homes with lawns, stables and carriage houses had been built. The area was considered a rural retreat until the 1860s, when developers had row houses built, attracting rich professionals. That included oil executive Charles Pratt, who had his mansion built on Clinton Avenue and then built houses for four of his sons in the area. Pratt’s move influenced other wealthy industrialists to build mansions on Clinton and Washington avenues between
1880 and 1915, including the Pfizers. The first apartment buildings in the area were constructed in the 1900s and during the 1920s and 1930s, they replaced a number of the mansions. Then in 1954, power broker Robert Moses cleared a five-block area south of Pratt Institute for urban renewal, causing many of the one-family homes to become rooming houses. Many of the neighborhood’s neglected brownstones were restored in the 1970s and a portion of Clinton Hill was designated as a historic district in 1981. — Norm Goldstein

Take a Stroll to Queens from D’town Brooklyn, Part Two You’ll See Pratt Institute Sculptures and historic Mansions By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
It starts with a Shake Shack and ends with a cemetery. How can you resist? If you want to walk to Queens from Downtown Brooklyn, Willoughby’s a fine way to go. For part of your stroll, you’ll notice this thoroughfare is called Willoughby Street. On the far side of Fort Greene Park, it becomes Willoughby Avenue.
Welcome to Pratt Institute. Here's its landmarked Main Building. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan
The street is lined with eye-catching new apartment towers and landmarked houses. It slices through Clinton Hill, BedfordStuyvesant and Bushwick. It ends a couple blocks into Ridgewood, Queens, at Linden Hill United Methodist Cemetery. We’ve split our story of our walk into three parts so we can show you as many photos as possible. This is Part Two.
Do You Know the Way to Ryerson Walk?
Hall. John Mead Howells designed the other wing, namely the neo-Romanesque-style Memorial Hall.
Pratt Institute’s Outdoor Sculptures
A collection of more than 60 artworks that’s on display on the campus is called the Pratt Institute Sculpture Park. It includes pieces that famous and emerging artists have loaned to the school plus some commissioned works. When you’ve finished your stroll inside Pratt Institute’s gates and return to Willoughby Avenue, at the corner of Emerson Place you’ll see the landmarked Pratt Institute Faculty Rowhouses.
There are landmarked houses galore and stunning churches on Willoughby Avenue in Clinton Hill. But the best eye candy of all is at Pratt Institute, which we’ll show you first. — Continued on page 17INB — The art, architecture and design college’s campus begins at the intersection Avenue or Flushing Avenue on the north and Fulton of Willoughby Avenue and Hall Street and exStreet or Atlantic Avenue on the south.

Eye on CLINTON
This is stunning Jacob Dangler House on the corner of Willoughby and Nostrand avenues.
Take a Stroll to Queens From D’town Brooklyn, Part Two — Continued from page 16NB — They were constructed in 1907. Architect Hobart A. Walker designed the Colonial Revival-style brick homes. Alternating townhouses have either Dutch Colonial-style stepped gable roofs or details that suggest Elizabethan half-timber homes. The college recently restored the rowhouses and turned them into student housing. Brooklyn’s own Charles Pratt founded the institute in 1887. The 19th-century industrialist and philanthropist sold his oil refineries to John D. Rockefeller of Standard Oil and became an important figure at that company. Pratt, who lived in Clinton Hill, created the institute as a technical-training school for workers. Students in the early days prepared for careers as architects, engineers, dressmakers and furniture makers, the institute’s website says.
A Lovely Landmarked Church
Now double back with us to Fort Greene. One of the most eye-catching properties in the neighborhood is the landmarked French Speaking Baptist Church. It’s red brick and Romanesque Revival in style, with a distinctive tower situated on its Willoughby and Clermont avenues corner. It was the Simpson Methodist Episcopal Church at the time of its construction in 1869, a Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report about the Fort Greene Historic District says. Architecture firm Mundell & Teckritz designed the church. As you keep strolling, you’ll see lots of lovely rowhouses. The ones on the corner of Willoughby and Vanderbilt avenues, which are semishrouded by shrubs and lovely trees, are especially charming. In a moment, you’re in the Clinton Hill Historic District.
District designation report: Charles Pratt built houses on Clinton Avenue as wedding gifts for his sons. One of them was 229 Clinton Ave., which was a present for Frederic B. Pratt. Manhattan architecture firm Babb, Cook & Willard designed the neo-Italian Renaissance palazzo-style mansion in 1895. It’s made of gray brick and white granite and marble trim and has a magnificent, tree-shaded lawn. At the front entrance, there’s a two-story-high stoa, which is a promenade with columns and a roof. Another especially eye-pleasing Clinton Hill Historic District spot is the intersection of Willoughby and Washington avenues, where there are fab historic houses all over the place. On one side of Willoughby Avenue, there’s a pair of Romanesque Revival-style houses at 229-231 Washington Ave., which J.G. Glover designed in 1892 for brothers John and Henry von Glahn. On the other side, there’s a row of five neo-Grec brownstones at 235-243 Washington Ave. that W.H. Gaylor designed in 1879. The corner house in this row has a mansard roof.
Apartments Planned for St. Mary’s Property As you continue walking, you’ll arrive at Pratt Institute. After that, at the edge of Clinton Hill, you’ll see a big property on the corner of Willoughby and Classon avenues where tall grasses wave in the breeze. Stunning landmarked St. Mary’s Episcopal Church is the most important building on the site.
NBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan
Its address is 230 Classon Ave. Richard Tylden Auchmuty designed the Gothic Revivalstyle church in 1858, a Landmarks Preservation Commission designation report about the property says. It’s made of brownstone quarried in Belleville, New Jersey, near Newark, and has a soaring spire. In 2016, the Real Deal and DNAinfo reported that St. Mary’s plans to demolish a parish house on the property and build a 142-unit apartment building in its place. It will also demolish a rectory to make the church building more visible to folks out on the street. We looked at Finance Department records and saw that an entity called 230 Classon Development LLC signed a 99year lease with St. Mary’s for the portion of the property where the construction is planned. The LLC’s authorized signatory on the lease is Travis Stabler. Stabler is the founder of Rivington Company, which is a development and property-management firm.
A Gas Station/Development Site
As Willoughby Avenue continues into Bed-Stuy, autobody shops and industrial buildings dot the streetscape. The owner of a Shell gas station at 895 Bedford Ave. on the corner of Willoughby Avenue is seeking zoning changes in order to develop the property. A city Environmental Assessment Statement filed in August says the proposed project would be a seven-story, 36-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail space. In 2014, Bill Wolf Petroleum Corp. transferred ownership of 895 Bedford Ave. to an LLC, Finance Department records show.
Jacob Dangler’s Mansion
On Willoughby Avenue blocks further into Bed-Stuy, there are beautiful brownstones and stately old-fashioned apartment houses. One of the most memorable properties is Jacob Dangler’s mansion, which is 441 Willoughby Ave. on the corner of Nostrand Avenue. It’s made of orange-hued brick with stone trim and has a turret. It looks kinda like a fantasy castle. Dangler, a prosperous immigrant entrepreneur, built the French Gothic Revival-style mansion around 1902, architectural history expert Suzanne Spellen wrote in a two-part Brownstoner.com story. Finance Department records identify the current owner as the United Grand Chapter Order of Eastern Star, State of New York Inc.
A Home for Pratt’s President
One of our favorite sights in this landmarked area is Caroline Ladd Pratt House at 229 Clinton Ave., just off the corner of Willoughby Avenue. It serves as a residence for Pratt Institute’s president.

When It Comes To Multifamily Properties, The Sun Is About To Shine Brighter On Sunset Park By Stephen Vorvolakos, Director – Investment Sales
David Baruch, Senior Analyst – Investment Research
Brooklyn is undeniably one of the hottest destinations for multifamily properties, with the asset classes’ steady returns and capital preservation being significant draws. As some regions become overwhelmed with supply, investors will likely turn their attention to neighborhoods that are poised to become the “next big thing,” and Sunset Park is high on their list. In the first three quarters of 2018, New York City’s biggest borough recorded 284 multifamily transactions consisting of 372 properties, totaling approximately $2.75 billion in gross consideration, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ Investment Research Division. On a year-over-year basis, transaction and building volume held steady, but dollar volume soared 71% due to a noticeable increase in large and institutional caliber sales. For the past three years, Brooklyn has comprised almost 50% of NYC’s multifamily transaction volume. So far in 2018, the borough has constituted roughly 46% of NYC’s 500 multifamily sales. After an active 2017, investors took a breather from Sunset Park’s multifamily market this year, a trend likely to prove transitory given the area’s slew of amenities and attributes. From its proximity to Manhattan and favorable zoning to its huge industrial waterfront, rapid population growth and strong retail landscape, multifamily buildings are poised to appreciate. And Sunset Park’s spectacular hillside views of Manhattan are icing on the cake. Nearby Gowanus is in the midst of a major transformation, with Whole Foods, Royal Palms Shuffle Board, Dino BBQ and Ample Hills Creamery all planting their flag in the area. Residential demand followed, so it is no surprise that real estate developers, restauranteurs and artists have turned the once working class neighborhood into a trendy hot spot that is comparable to Williamsburg just ten years ago. Now investors are searching for the “Next Gowanus,” and their answer lies squarely on Sunset Park, which is quite similar in demographics and scenery. Gowanus is awash with new development, with 1,650 new residential units in the pipeline, according to data collected by Recity. Sunset Park, on the other hand, is just getting started. Last year, Fairstead Capital purchased a 42-building portfolio comprised of 403 total units for north of $100 million. In mid-August, New Empire Corp. revealed plans for three midrise towers totaling well over one million square feet across multiple blocks, spanning from 8th Avenue to Fort Hamilton Parkway. The sheer size and scope of this massive complex is unprecedented for
Sunset Park and is likely a sign of more to come. Flurry Of Favorable Factors Sunset Park is located within the New York City Economic Development Corporation’s Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Business Zone. This zoning provides firms with economic incentives for relocation to the area, including business income tax credits of up to $3,000 per employee, property tax abatements and reduced energy costs. With these improvements, major technology/advertising/media/information (TAMI) businesses have moved into the area. The decline in brick-and-mortar retail demand due to the rise of e-commerce continues to take a toll on retailers, namely in Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn. As a result, stores have increasingly set their sights on more affordable rents, which can be found Sunset Park. The Brooklyn Nets’ practice facilities, Bed Bath & Beyond, Saks Off 5th, Five Borough Brewing Company, Brooklyn Kura Sake Distillery and World Market are all situated in the area. The above attractions should continue to bring new residents. Since 2000, Sunset Park’s population has grown 7.2%, sharply above Brooklyn as a whole, which grew 4.3%. From a pricing perspective, demand for residential space will only continue to rise in Sunset Park, and some investors have already taken notice. Right now, residential rents in Gowanus average about $38 per square foot, while Sunset Park’s average rent is only $28 per square foot, showing there is still plenty of upside to be unlocked for multifamily investors. Excluding residential homes and townhouses, about 30% of the properties located in Sunset Park are multifamily buildings. As developers begin to realize the future potential, this number will surely grow. Through the first three quarters of 2018, property values in Sunset Park have spiked. The price per square foot for a multifamily building sale averaged $444, a remarkable 22% increase from 2017. Meanwhile, the average price per unit was $350,757, an impressive 25% increase from last year. Despite higher property values, there is still significant upside due to many of the above-mentioned reasons. Lastly, while other Brooklyn neighborhoods that rely on the L-train face uncertainty next year when it closes for 18-24 months, Sunset Park will be largely unscathed due to its copious transportation options. Looking ahead, the multifamily property market in Sunset Park is a bastion of opportunity. The region’s favorable zoning, beautiful waterfront views, thriving retail sector and relative affordability should continue to entice investors and residents alike, all but guaranteeing a strong investment sales market for the foreseeable future.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Chabad-Lubavitch Leaders Worldwide Gather in Crown Heights for Conference Last week’s annual gathering in Crown Heights of more than 5,000 Chabad-Lubavitch rabbis from around the world this year was somber. A rabbinical delegation from Pittsburgh led the group in prayer and solemn song to mourn the those who were brutally murdered in an anti-Semitic shooting eight days before. Emissaries from Pittsburgh had spent the Shabbat with overflowing congregations in synagogues and on college campuses back home before traveling to New York. Attending were 5,600 rabbis and communal leaders from 100 countries and 50 U.S. states, according to an email from a Chabad spokesperson. They were all visiting New York for the annual event, which is aimed at strengthening Jewish awareness and practice around the world. The assembly then posed for the annual group picture of International Conference of ChabadLubavitch Emissaries taken in front of ChabadLubavitch world headquarters in Brooklyn. This year’s gathering comes only days after the anti-Semitic shooting in Pittsburgh which has been a focal point of the conference.

Brooklynite Tapped As Interim CEO Of Historic Collegiate Churches
Prospect Heights resident Daniel J. (Dan) Lehman has been named the interim CEO of the Collegiate Churches of New York, which he joined last month. Established in 1628, the Collegiate Churches of New York have old, deep roots in a great city, yet have also embraced a thoroughly modern perspective on spirituality and community in a greater world. Founded in the tradition of Reformed Protestantism, Collegiate responds to the spiritual needs of people today by embracing diversity, affirmation, openness and justice. Collegiate defines itself as “a single historic church with five city-wide ministries—four churches and one outreach ministry called Intersections International. Each is unique in approach and character, but unified in our core values of inclusion, self-exploration and positive thinking. As a spiritual community we encourage people to search, discover and flourish.” As a government and nonprofit executive and leader, Lehman offers a wide range of strategic planning, organizational development and operations management skills along with a deep commitment to improving the lives of others. Prior to joining Collegiate, Lehman served as chief financial officer and chief operating officer at Children’s Aid New York. He has experience in public health and social services with the city of New York, and in health care and information technology consulting. He began his career with MDRC in New York, analyzing the effectiveness of welfare-to-work and employment-training programs prior to the passage of federal welfare reform legislation in 1996. Lehman holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from NYU’s Stern School of Business and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics & East Asian Studies from Harvard University. A native of Duxbury, Mass., Lehman is married with two children.

Episcopal, Roman Catholic Bishops Call On Their Flocks To Be Compassionate Last week, the bishops of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn published pastoral letters regarding the recent shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue and acts of vandalism against Jews in Brooklyn, as well as the then-upcoming elections and national political climate. The Rt. Rev. Lawrence Provenzano, the Episcopal Bishop of a diocese that includes Brooklyn and Queens, addressed the anti-Semitic attacks. His letter reads, “Last week there was the horrendous anti-Semitic attack on worshippers at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue. Today [Friday, Nov. 2] there is news of several Brooklyn synagogues and Jewish schools being attacked by an arsonist and Union Temple vandalized by graffiti—additional ugly displays of evil that appear to be on the increase in our nation. “To counter this evil, I call on the priests and deacons of our diocese and the people of each of our congregations to be the personal, outward and visible expressions of God’s goodness for our Jewish sisters and brothers whose lives and worship are being silenced, threatened or disrupted. “Synagogues across the country are calling on congregants and faith allies to #ShowUpForShabbat this weekend. Let us respond to that call—to show up and stand up to hate and bigotry, to courageously express our solidarity and love in the face of these ongoing acts of hate. “Acts of love must answer acts of hate. Some of our parishes have already reached out to their nearby synagogues and rabbi colleagues and I commend them and bless them for their faithfulness. “The example of Jesus in the Gospel and our baptismal covenant to respect the dignity of every human being call us to act in love and respect and in solidarity with our Jewish siblings and neighbors across Long Island and Brooklyn.” Bishop Provenzano indicated that his vicar for community justice ministry, the Rev. Marie Tatro, is also coordinating the diocese’s response to this crisis.
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, in his Nov. 7 column “Put Out Into the Deep,” had gone to press before election results were in. But he chose to address the national mood in a column titled ‘The Dangers of Populist Nationalism.” DiMarzio pointed out that Populist Nationalism aims to instill fear in the hearts of citizens against people who are different from themselves. Describing a recent Vatican conference on Xenophobia, racism and populist nationalism, DiMarzio said, “Populist Nationalism is a political strategy that seeks to rely on and promote the fears of individuals and groups in order to assert the need for an authoritarian political power to protect the interests of the dominant social or ethnic group established on a particular territory. It is in the name of this ‘protection’ that populist leaders justify the refusal to offer refuge, to receive and to integrate individuals or groups from other countries or different cultural or religious contexts.” DiMarzio touched on several issues at the forefront of the news, including the caravan of refugees, birthright citizen-

ship and public charge (assistance programs for the needy). “The United States is bound by both federal and international law not to expel or return a refugee whose life or freedom would be threatened on account of his/her race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion.” DiMarzio wrote, “As Christians and Catholics, we must support fundamental human rights, and we must reject populist initiatives that are incompatible with Gospel values. This should inspire our participation in political life and political discourse. We need to understand our fundamental choices when it comes to choosing our elected officials who need to defend life at all stages of existence from conception to natural death.”

ON NOV. 5, 1952, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “President-elect Dwight D. Eisenhower, in a victory statement, today called on Republicans and Democrats to forget the bitterness of the campaign and work together for national unity. Appearing for the first time in his new role before 2,500 nearly hysterical campaign workers in the Grand Ballroom of the Hotel Commodore, Eisenhower pledged never to shirk the responsibilities that had been assigned to him. He read the telegram which he had sent to his defeated Democratic opponent in which he thanked him for his congratulations and asked that ‘men and women of good will of both parties forget the political strife of the past and devote themselves to a single purpose of a better future.’” ON THIS DAY IN 1942, the Eagle reported, “George M. Cohan, Broadway’s remarkable ‘song-and-dance man,’ died at 5 a.m. today, at the age of 64 … Cohan’s passing rang down the curtain on a stage career of more than half a century, during which George M. was actor, dancer, singer, playwright, song writer, director and producer — and a star in each capacity. He was equally at home on the variety stage during vaudeville’s golden age, on the legit when vaudeville began to fade and in musical comedy. During World War I he wrote ‘Over There,’ to which millions of Americans in uniform marched. It was the American war song of 1917-1918. Tradition has it, and the records show, that George M. Cohan was born on the Fourth of July, 1878, and in later years Cohan’s musical comedies had a ‘Star Spangled Banner’ zest which critics joined and audiences loved.” THE FIRST BASKETBALL BACKBOARD WAS SHATTERED THIS WEEK IN 1946. Chuck Connors of the Boston Celtics became the first NBA player to shatter a backboard, doing so during the pregame warm-up at Boston Garden. The Brooklyn native also played major league baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs and gained fame as star of the television series “The Rifleman.”
For Laughing Out Loud Not sure if you have noticed, but I love bad puns. That’s just how eye roll. Did you hear that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be doing a movie about classical music? He’ll be Bach. My friend keeps saying “Cheer up man it could be worse, u could be stuck underground in a hole full of water” I know he means well. A guy walked into a bar… And was disqualified from the limbo contest.

ON NOV. 6, 1940, the Eagle reported, “Bushwick’s future voters held a practice election yesterday while their parents went to the polls. The result — President [Franklin] Roosevelt 135, Wendell L. Willkie 102. Voting requirements were limited to neighborhood children 5 to 18 years of age. The juvenile voters tossed two repeaters out of the voting line and reported no serious trouble during the balloting which took place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. A jerry-built booth consisting of two mahogany doors and a curtain, plus a cardboard receptacle for the ballots, was stationed in front of 233 Weirfield St. The election was the idea of 7-year-old Cynthia Cali, daughter of Dr. Sam Cali, in front of whose home the election was held. The voters were children largely of German, Italian and Irish ancestry.” ON NOV. 6, 1949, the Eagle reported, “Brooklyn rose up in its mild wrath yesterday and pretty indignantly denied Pravda’s please-mister-gimme-one-cent-for-something-to-eat charge against Brooklyn. Moscow’s Communist Party newspaper, according to a dispatch from behind the Iron Curtain, quoted a Soviet seaman as saying that in Brooklyn things were just terrible right now. In Brooklyn, Seaman I.A. Zadirozhny was said to have said, there is no shopping in the stores because people have no money, well-dressed men begged him for ‘one cent for food’ and agronomists (unable to find work in their own field) ‘work as hired hands.’ No Brooklyn agronomist could be located to check on the hired-hand story, and a lot of people rushing in and out of Fulton St. stores declined to comment on whether there was shopping in the stores.”
You Should Know This • As the first president of the United States, George Washington was the only president to never declare a party affiliation because they didn’t exist when he was elected into office. • What we know today as the Democratic Party started as the Democratic-Republicans in 1791. The former presidents that affiliated under this party include Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and John Quincy Adams. • The Democratic or Republican parties have won every presidential election since 1852. Better luck next time, American Vegetarians. • The only U.S. president to own a patent and a saloon: Abraham Lincoln. His patent was for a device to lift boats over sandbars. His saloon was a miserable failure. • The current 50-star American flag was designed by a 17-year-old as a school project in 1958. He got a B-.

Brooklyn Eagle cover from Nov. 8, 1918
ON NOV. 8, 1918, the Eagle reported, “(AP) — Germany’s armistice delegates, having entered the French lines under a white flag, last night met Marshal Foch … From him they will receive the armistice terms of the Allies and the United States. The historic meeting occurred in a little village in the Department of the Aisne. Germany will be given 72 hours in which to reply to the terms presented by Marshal Foch. It is declared there will be no cessation of hostilities. The German delegates will not be permitted to haggle. They must accept or go on fighting.” ON NOV. 8, 1860, the Eagle reported, “No news has been received from the south of a definite character which may serve to show the state of public feeling there now that the thing is over, and Lincoln is constitutionally elected by the people. There are rumors that Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Virginia even stand ready to turn their backs upon us and set up in opposition to Uncle Sam, but we hope they will think better of it. Let them give Abe a chance to see what he will do; if he don’t do right we will all take a hand in making him. Our partnership has been profitable, honorable and glorious, and it should not be dissolved without good cause. No adequate cause has yet been given; when there is, the south may secede and the north will go with her, and we will make it right that way.”

Frontus Bests Saperstein in Assembly Race BY AMANDA GLODOWSKI & PAULA KATINAS EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
fter months of waiting, the 46th Assembly District ﬁnally has an assemblymember. Unrepresented since the resignation of former Assemblymember Pamela Harris, who stepped down in the wake of an 11-count indictment on a slew of corruption charges, the district -- which runs from Coney Island to Bay Ridge -- on Tues., Nov. 6, chose to send Democrat Mathylde Frontus to Albany as its next representative. Frontus defeated Republican-Conservative candidate Steve Saperstein, securing 54.1 percent of the vote, and defeating Saperstein by 2,927 votes. In September, Frontus won a narrow victory in the Democratic primary, upsetting establishment-backed Ethan Lustig-Elgrably for the Democratic nomination by a mere 51 votes. On Election Day, Frontus got 14,750 votes to
Saperstein’s 11,823 votes. Lustig-Elgrably, who had previously won the Working Families Party line, got 1.5 percent (370) and Green Party candidate Patrick Dwyer got one percent (284). “It sure wasn’t 51 votes this time around,” said Frontus’s campaign manager Joe Herrera with a smile. Frontus beamed at her supporters, who gathered at the Red Door Bar and Grill, 1205 Surf Ave., to celebrate. “Look what we did, everyone. This is about people power. This is about what we are able to do together as a community of people,” said Frontus. “We’ve been fighting over the idea of who gets to sit at the table in terms of electoral politics. Is there room at the table for everyone? Yes, there’s plenty of room. And when we’re not invited to the table, no problem, we bring our own table. That’s what this race has been about.” Frontus is known for her work within the community, founding both the Urban Neighborhood Services and

the Coney Island Anti-Violence Collaborative, where she ﬁrst met Herrera. “I was with my sons playing basketball at the Coney Island YMCA, and there was
the private sector and was subsequently indicted in connection with a sting operation targeting three Brooklyn medical clinics that investigators allege were “pill mills.”. “Frontus’s transparency is inspiring,” DeCillis proclaimed. “There’s a saying I like that says, you’re looking for kindness but you’re not being kind. You’re looking for honesty but you’re not being honest. One of the things that maddens me is when people are not transparent as politicians,” Frontus said. For his part, Saperstein, who awaited election results in the Bay Ridge Manor, appeared upbeat during the early part of the evening. And his mood didn’t sour when the race was called for Frontus.
a shooting. I heard it was a kid, and my heart dropped. I ran up the stairs, saw my sons, and thanked God, but left saying ‘Someone has to do something,’” Herrera recounted. “A few days later, I went back to the Y’s community room for an anti-violence meeting. It was packed. Standing at the helm of the room was Mathylde Frontus.” Nearly 100 members of the community gathered to celebrate with Frontus, including Mike DeCillis, who lost to Max Rose in the Democratic 11th Congressional District primary back in June. “This seat in particular has been mired with corruption,” said DeCillis, referring to Harris as well as Alec Brook-Krasny, who left oﬃce to take a job in
Saperstein walked up to the podium at the front of the ballroom and said his campaign had a lot to be proud of, despite the loss. “We got over 10,000 votes,” he told supporters. Saperstein thanked his campaign volunteers for knocking on doors and making phone calls to voters on his behalf. The tone of his speech left no doubt that Saperstein intends to run for public oﬃce again someday. “We fell short. But I want everyone to know that we have just begun. I don’t want people to leave this room in a bad mood. We didn’t do it this time. But we will be back,” he said. Saperstein then slowly circled the ballroom shaking hands and hugging supporters.

IN PUBLIC SERVICE COMPILED BY PAULA KATINAS AND JOHN ALEXANDER
BRANNAN CO-INTRODUCES BILL TO PROTECT CITY FROM NEW FEDERAL TAX LAW City Councilmember Justin Brannan (D-Bay Ridge-Dyker Heights-Bath Beach-Bensonhurst) has co-sponsored a bill with Bronx City Councilmember Ritchie Torres that’s designed to protect New York City residents from a new federal tax law that was recently introduced in the New York City Council. The law would create a charitable gifts reserve fund to which taxpayers could donate in lieu of paying some local and state taxes. These charitable gifts could then be used for federal tax deductions. The bill provides a workaround to a new federal law that caps state and local tax deductions at $10,000 starting this year. Without the alternative championed by Brannan, the Trump-signed law would eﬀectively raise taxes on many New Yorkers and be a disincentive for individuals to donate to charities at the level they are used to. The bill protects taxpayers, donors and nonproﬁt organizations that rely on donations. “This federal cap on state and local tax deductions is one of those Trump policies that seem tailor-made to hurt us New Yorkers,” Brannan said. “As local representatives, we have a mandate to protect our city from the madness in Washington, and that’s exactly what our bill does. When it comes to local tax deductions, we were doing ﬁne on our own. D.C. should stay out of the way.” Having been introduced, the bill will now go on to committee hearings before a ﬁnal Council vote. – JA
DONOVAN, MALONEY PUSH FOR HOLOCAUST EDUCATION BILL U.S. Reps. Dan Donovan (R-Southwest Brooklyn-Staten Island) and Carolyn Maloney (D-North Brooklyn-Manhattan) have written to leaders of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce to request a hearing on bipartisan legislation they are sponsoring to bolster Holocaust education in the U.S. The bill, called the Never Again Education Act, is getting a renewed push by Donovan and Maloney following the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 in which a gunman shot 11 people to death. “The bill ensures more schools have the opportunity to educate their students about the Holocaust, through the creation of a fund at the Department of Education to provide grants to public and private middle and high schools that will help teachers develop and improve Holocaust education programs,” the two lawmakers wrote in their joint letter. Donovan and Maloney called the attack at the Tree of Life “horriﬁc and unconscionable.” – PK
CLARKE CALLS UNION TEMPLE HATE CRIME ‘REPULSIVE’ U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-Central Brooklyn) reacted angrily to the recent case of anti-Semitic vandalism that took place at the Union Temple of Brooklyn, a synagogue in the Crown Heights portion of her congressional district. “The recent vandalism of Union Temple of Brooklyn in Prospect Heights is absolutely repulsive,” Clarke said in a strongly worded statement. Hate-ﬁlled messages, including the warning “Jews better be ready,” were found scrawled in black marker on the walls inside the temple, police said. The vandal also wrote “Hitler” on the walls. “Union Temple of Brooklyn is a community safe haven. For several decades it has served as a space of refuge, cultural hub for the arts, and a place where love, compassion and service to mankind abides. An attack on Union Temple is an attack on all of Brooklyn,” Clarke said. “This latest hate crime comes just days after the atrocity at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I stand shoulder to shoulder with my Jewish brethren on this day and renew my call to law enforcement to ensure that Jewish communities across the country are protected.” Clarke said. The NYPD arrested a suspect, James Polite, 26, and charged him with criminal mischief as a hate crime and making graﬃti. – PK
TREYGER RESPONDS TO DOE’S PROPOSED SCHOOLS CAPITAL PLAN City Councilmember Mark Treyger (D-Coney Island-Gravesend-Bensonhurst) has issued a statement regarding the release of the Department of Education’s (DOE) proposed ﬁve-year capital plan for schools. Treyger believes that updating the city’s aging school buildings can help address some of the most signiﬁcant challenges facing the school system. He strongly supports the capital plan that was proposed by the City Council, students, families and advocates. “Over 80 percent of our schools are not fully accessible, and that is simply unacceptable,” Treyger said. “Under the leadership of Speaker Corey Johnson, Finance Chair Danny Dromm, and my ofﬁce, the City Council worked with
the administration to secure a $150 million investment in the most recent budget towards improving school accessibility.” Treyger called it a good start but would like to see more money allotted to improving school accessibility. “The ﬁgures we see in this initial Capital Plan proposal – a commitment of $750 million into improving school accessibility – signal a greater vision from the administration toward a more equitable school system, inclusive for every child and family.” Treyger called it encouraging that the administration is aligning with the City Council in recognizing the need to hasten the installation of air conditioners in school classrooms.

Mark Treyger “Our students, their families, and our educators and school staﬀ all deserve safe, comfortable environments in which learning and education can thrive,” Treyger said. “They also deserve adequate capacity so modern technology and resources can augment curricula and empower our students with a 21st century education. Committing to these integral needs is a positive step in the right direction.” – JA
ASSEMBLYMEMBER RODNEYSE BICHOTTE INTRODUCES BILL TO PROTECT MINORS Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte (D-Ditmas Park-Flatbush) has introduced Jeremiah’s Law, legislation to protect minors from false reports against them. The legislation was inspired by a case that made headlines in which Jeremiah Harvey, a nine-yearold African-American boy, was wrongfully accused by a Caucasian woman, Teresa Klein, of sexually assaulting her when video footage showed it was his backpack that had brushed her. The accusation made by Klein, who was given the moniker “Cornerstore Caroline” on social media, caused the community to react to the condemnation, heightening racial tensions.
“Irresponsible acts such as this can severely impact the lives of those accused as it did with Jeremiah who was traumatized after being falsely accused of groping a white woman in a grocery store, similar to an incident in 1955 that led to the brutal murder of Emmett Till,” Bichotte said. Bichotte went on to explain, “This bill ensures that someone who is found to have knowingly ﬁled a false report against a minor will face felony charges. We need to take action against the spurring undertones that poison our communities. I hope that this will help to deter people from proceeding with extreme and unnecessary actions particularly against minors under 13 years-old.” –JA

MALLIOTAKIS: HALF OF ALL HATE CRIMES AIMED AT JEWS Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (R-Bay Ridge-Staten Island) said that was disturbed to discover that half of all hate crimes in New York are committed against Jews.
Eagle fi le photo by Paula Katinas
Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis called the Union Temple graffiti incident, “the latest in a disturbing string of anti-Jewish incidents that are on the rise in our city.”
Malliotakis, who condemned the hate crime at the Union Temple of Brooklyn, called on all New Yorkers to speak out against anti-Semitism. The Union Temple incident “is the latest in a disturbing string of anti-Jewish incidents that are on the rise in our city,” Malliotakis said in a statement. “Hate crimes against our Jewish neighbors account for half of all hate crimes in New York and as New Yorkers, we all have an obligation to speak out. These senseless acts, whether horriﬁc violence or hateful speech intended to intimidate others, have no place in the United States and certainly do not belong here in New York City where we all have historically come together despite our many diverse backgrounds. All New Yorkers and all Americans need to see past political party, race, religion and other diﬀerences to unite and forcefully denounce these divisive acts that do nothing but tarnish our community and incite more violence,” Malliotakis said. – PK

ay Ridge residents showed up in droves to exercise their right to vote in this year’s all important midterm elections, leaving some angry at long waits. The election generated enthusiasm among members of both parties, with representation of the 11th Congressional District, the 22nd State Senate District, and the 46th and 64th Assembly Districts
among the races being run. Local Bay Ridge resident Matthew Guadagno, who voted at Christ Church, 7301 Ridge Blvd, at around 7 a.m. on Tues., Nov. 6, said he felt the excitement. “It wasn’t too bad at ﬁrst,” he said. “It took me maybe 10 minutes to vote, but lines were much longer when I left. They were out the door. One of the people who worked there said the line was long before they opened. My neighbor was actually there handing out ﬂyers and gave me a high ﬁve.”
