Fort Greene high-rise opponents have their day in court Lawsuit moves forward against South Portland Ave. development By Lore Croghan The Record
The city violated the law in rezoning a Fort Greene development site, a lawyer for neighborhood residents argued before a judge on March 19 in a court case that could have implications for development projects around the city. This case is significant because it challenges a trend of developers easily winning the City Planning Commission’s permission to disregard zoning that protects neighborhoods from dense, high-rise development — zoning that was established with the consensus of community residents, elected officials and the City Planning Commission itself. When the City Planning Commission and the City Council voted in 2018 to permit developers of 142-150 South Portland Ave. to build a 13-story tower, the city flouted the 2007 rezoning of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill “to the detriment of local residents,” Jack Lester said in his March 19 oral arguments before New York Supreme Court Justice Lynn Kotler. Their decisions resulted in illegal “spot zoning,” Lester argued. Case law defines this as zoning that allows an owner to use his property in a way that is totally different from others in the surrounding area — and that owner is the only one who benefits, while owners of surrounding properties suffer harm. Lester represents a group called Preserve Our Brooklyn Neighborhoods and more than 50 individual residents. They filed suit last October against the City Planning Commission, the City Council, Metropolitan Development Group Design and Construction and the Hanson Place Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
The church owns the development site. The rezoning the developer and church won allows them to construct a 13-story residential building, which is taller than what’s normally allowed by the neighborhood zoning.
The project’s 100 apartments will be affordable units for tenants with widely varying incomes. The church will house its music ministry and its service programs on the first floor. There will be medical offices in the cellar. Thirty-two apartments are for tenants earning 80 percent of area median income. This means a single person with an annual
income of $58,480, according to data provided by Preserve Our Brooklyn Neighborhoods. The other units are for tenants earning 100 percent of area median income, meaning an individual who makes $73,100 per year; or 130 percent of area median income, meaning a single person with an annual income of $95,030, the data indicates.
‘Zoning is not static’ Lester argued at the March 19 hearing that the 2007 rezoning of 99 blocks of Fort Greene and Clinton Hill provides developers with incentives to construct affordable housing in the area — and the church and developer shouldn’t have been given additional sweeteners to do so. Elizabeth Kim, a New York City Law Department attorney, countered Lester’s arguments by saying the 142-150 South Portland Ave. rezoning should be considered legal because it was meant to promote the welfare of the community. And the 2007 neighborhood rezoning was not meant to last “for time immemorial,” Kim said. “Zoning is not static,” she argued. So what happens next? Justice Kotler could make her decision in a matter of weeks. If she decides the Fort Greene residents are right, the church and developer can build a 70-unit affordable apartment project that’s 95 feet tall. Such a decision would send a message to New York City developers that they can’t always expect to be able to disregard zoning that was crafted with community members’ consensus. If she decides the church and developer are right, they’ll start work on their 13-story project. And other developers may redouble their efforts to get zoning variances for high-rise development in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

The Record asked the residents who filed the suit for comment before the March 19 hearing. Sandy Reiburn of Preserve Our Brooklyn Neighborhoods responded by calling the upzoning of 142-150 South Portland Ave. a “misbegotten scheme” that could be “the gateway to all those drooling Downtown Brooklyn mega-developers who’re attempting to invade our human-scale blocks.” Joan Reutershan said, “If the South Portland structure is built, what will stop other developers from following the precedent, in effect further dismantling the approved zoning?” Ernest August said, “Under the fig leaf of ‘affordable housing,’ the De Blasio Administration has eviscerated neighborhoods along with the small businesses that help give them definition.”

Surrogate Judge López Torres racking up endorsements prior to re-election By Rob Abruzzese The Record
Hon. Margarita López Torres, one of Brooklyn’s two Surrogate’s Court judges, is running for re-election this June and has a lot of backers from Eagle file photo by Mario Belluomo around the borough.
rooklyn Surrogate’s Court Judge Margarita López Torres is running for re-election in the June 25 Democratic primary and after running as a symbol of an independent judiciary in her last two elections, the justice has no shortage of support this time around. Justice López Torres was recently endorsed by Congressmembers Nydia Velázquez and Hakeem Jeffries, two of the most visible Democrats from Brooklyn. She was also endorsed by Borough President Eric Adams recently, and her list of past endorsements is long as well. “I’m proud to be supporting Judge Margarita López Torres for re-election for Surrogate’s Court Judge,” Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said. “With 40 years of legal experience, and over 26 years of judicial service, her excellence and compassionate commitment to serving the people of Brooklyn throughout her career is well known. “She has demonstrated competence in managing this complex court, and providing the fairness and efficient administration of justice we need,” Williams continued. “I join with so many other elected leaders, and the Working Families Party, in urging Democrats to vote for her re-election in the Democratic primary on June 25.” Judge López Torres was elected to Civil Court in 1992 and re-elected in 2002; she was then elected to Surrogate’s Court in 2005. She was not the Democratic-backed candidate during her 2005 run, making her election a move that wasn’t easy to pull off.
In addition, independent runs like hers usually mean that it is hard to gain support the next time around. When she won back in 2005, The New York Times proclaimed that, “shattering stereotypes is her mission.” Others who have already endorsed Justice López Torres include Assemblymembers Peter Abbate, Rodneyse Bichotte, Robert Carroll, William Colton, Maritza Davila, Erik Dilan, Joe Lentol, Walter Mosley, Nick Perry and JoAnne Simon; state Senators Velmanette Montgomery, Roxanne Persaud and Diane Savino; and Councilmembers Brad Lander, Alan Maisel and Kalman Yeger. López Torres also has the backing of many of the borough’s top political clubs and organizations including the Working Families Party, the Brooklyn Young Democrats, Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats, Independent Neighborhood Democrats, the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club, the Kings County Democratic Executive Committee, North Brooklyn Progressive Democrats, Lambda Independent Democrats, the Thomas Jefferson Democratic Club and the Vanguard Independent Democratic Association, as well as that of 31 district leaders. Justice López Torres was a chief lawyer for the city’s Child Protection Agency and director of family law at Brooklyn Legal Services before she joined the bench. She is also very active in many of the local bar associations including the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association, the Brooklyn Bar Association and the Bay Ridge Lawyers Association.
Court Employees of the Year
BWBA president Carrie Anne Cavallo honored Maria Aragona, president of the Federation of Columbian Lawyers, and Andrew Wenzel were named Court Employees of the Year during a ceremony at the Brooklyn Supreme Court, Civil Term, on Tuesday. Aragona is the law clerk to Hon. Kenneth Sherman and Brooklyn Eagle photo by Rob Abruzzese Wenzel is the law clerk to Hon. William Harrington.
Carrie Anne Cavallo, president of the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association, was recently named as one of Brooklyn’s “Power Women” by Schneps Media during a ceremony at Grand Prospect Hall on March 14. “Carrie Anne has always been an unsung hero,” said Judge Joanne Quinones, president of the Latino Judges Association. “It was wonderful to see her get recognized as a Brooklyn Power Woman for her service, leadership and commitment to the citizens of Brooklyn. I watched as she modestly downplayed her accomplishments when introducing herself to her fellow honorees. She gives so much of herself and never expects anything in return.” Photo courtesy of Hon.

VIRTUAL AND REAL ESTATE In conjunction with the BRIC Biennial: Volume III, South Brooklyn Edition, the Virtual and Real Estate group exhibition features work by artists Pastiche Lumumba, Daniel Bejar, and Betty Yu, that expresses the conundrums that arise from living in an age where the simulated is increasingly confused with the real. Although “estate” has previously been
defined as fixed physical properties, the exhibition troubles our notions of property, ownership, circulation, space, and most fundamentally, what it means to be “real.” The Internet provides marginalized communities a virtual space for subversion and play, meanwhile distracting from the physical realities of gentrification and land rezoning. From Lumumba’s embalmed memes to Bejar’s subversion of the ubiquitous real estate billboard, to Yu’s archive of stories by communities affected by gentrification, these works challenges the absurdity of place and placelessness to bear on the chronological depth of lived experience. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through April 7th Where: Fort Greene/ BRIC House Gallery (647 Fulton Street)

we can look at the ways we’re fed imagery on a daily basis and teach us how to discern for ourselves what that imagery means to us. Other Ways of Knowing references illusion and misdirection traditionally designed to influence choice and transforms them into a new visual language. This digital iteration of Other Ways of Knowing features new additions to the series never exhibited before. The screens in the Made in NY Media Center will challenge the viewer to interact with a screen – a daily routine part of our lives – within a new context, one where you’re asked to stay for longer. This exhibition explores the narrative of the series in a new and refreshing way, accomplished by the unique collaboration of the space and the artist. When: Daily through March 31st, Mon-Fri 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sat-Sun 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY For two years, Brooklynbased photojournalist Cinthya Santos Briones has photographed undocumented migrants who face orders of deportation. By taking up asylum in houses of worship, often for indefinite periods of time, these individuals and their families have found both a refuge and a provisional prison. Santos Briones’ photographs are an intimate depiction of living in a state of uncertainty. Rather than present portraits of people in hopeless situations, she has chosen to convey the universal routines of their everyday lives. Birthdays are celebrated, siblings tease one another, and meals are shared. When: Daily through April 7th, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Make like a tourist and ride the NYC Ferry Spring’s here, so you won’t freeze your face off
By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Yassss. Spring has finally arrived after the Winter Of Our Discontent. (Forgive me. That Shakespeare line comes to mind every March.) The NYC Ferry is Brooklyn’s best entertainment bargain once temperatures rise above 50 degrees. A ride costs $2.75, just like a subway fare. When it’s colder than that, the wind on the boat’s upstairs deck — which is where you must sit for a clear view of the scenery — makes your face hurt and numbs your fingers. Once it’s spring, it’s time to make like a tourist and cruise the East River. The best choice of the many routes the ferry service offers is the one from DUMBO to Greenpoint. It’s a thrilling experience every time you take this ride. There are so many iconic North Brooklyn buildings to see, with a world-famous bridge thrown in for good measure. The ferry ride from DUMBO to Bay Ridge is terrific too. But unless you have a camera with a telephoto lens, the beautiful buildings on this stretch of the waterfront are hard to photograph. So. The best way to see everything on the shoreline be-
tween DUMBO and Greenpoint is by getting on the ferry a stop early, over in Manhattan on Wall Street’s Pier 11. To amp up your experience, you should walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to get to Pier 11. This will give you aerial views of the East River before you head down onto the water. To avoid crowding on the bridge you can stroll it at sunrise – a bucket-list experience I highly recommend.
ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER
There are three reasons to start your ferry trip on the Manhattan side of the East River. Reason #1 is the spectacular view you see from the ferry’s deck of the famous Brooklyn Bridge with the World Trade Center rising beside it. This view will always call to mind the lives lost in the 9/11 terror attack that destroyed the Twin Towers. A good look at the new World Trade Center tower is also a reminder that New Yorkers are resilient. Reason #2 is a superb panoramic view of Brooklyn Heights, which only looks like this from out on the water. Reason # 3 is the glimpse you get of the old Watchtower headquarters as the ferry pulls into DUMBO’s Pier 1. The pale-blue building with the time-and-temperature sign on top was the world headquarters of the Jehovah’s Witnesses for
nearly a half-century. The religious organization had a blazing red electric sign on top of 30 Columbia Heights that said “WATCHTOWER” in capital letters. Last year, current owner Columbia Heights Associates, which is converting the property to an office, retail and cultural complex, successfully challenged a city Buildings Department decision that forbade it from replacing the 15-foot-tall sign letters. The new letters have not yet been put up. I can’t wait to see what they say.
SUGAR CRYSTALS ON A FACADE
After the ferry stops at Pier 1 it cruises past Jane’s Carousel, the historic merry-go-round in Brooklyn Bridge Park. At the edge of the park the 19th-century coffee warehouse complex called Empire Stores stands in all its landmarked, red-brick glory. Manhattan Bridge looms overhead, with the DUMBO Clocktower Building standing close by at 1 Main St. Manufacturer/real estate developer Robert Gair constructed the concrete building in 1914. The many industrial properties he built in the neighborhood a century ago are referred to as “Gairville,” as history lovers know.

But first the boat will make a stop at the South Williamsburg ferry dock. Spitzer Enterprises is constructing a glittering glass apartment complex there, right at the water’s edge. The development’s address is 420 Kent Ave. After the ferry passes beneath the Williamsburg Bridge, you get an eyeful of the landmarked 19th-century Domino Sugar Refinery. Two Trees Management is converting it into an office and retail complex. There’s lots of great stuff in Domino Park, which surrounds the refinery, but it’s hard to see from your vantage point on the river. You should walk down to this park from Greenpoint after you’ve strolled around the neighborhood’s shops and historic houses. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Back to our ferry ride.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from March 26, 1943
ON MARCH 26, 1943, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “An emergency shipment of 1,000,000 extra pounds of beef, in addition to ‘regular’ supplies, has been started on its way from the mid-West to New York City to cope with the meat shortage, Mayor [Fiorello] LaGuardia announced today. The entire shipment will reach the city for sale in butcher shops Monday. Bursting from a budget hearing in the Municipal Building, Manhattan, the mayor, who has been seeking extra meat supplies through the [Office of Price Administration] for some time, said: ‘I have good news. I am happy to be able to announce that due to the splendid co-operation of Sylvester Joseph, regional OPA director, and L.G. Booth, local food rationing director, New York City will be able to get 1,000,000 extra pounds of beef.’ The OPA, according to the mayor, invoked emergency powers vested in it to act when a food shortage ‘interferes with the morale of the civilian population in the war effort.’”

ON MARCH 28, 1886, the Eagle reported, “Wilcox, Arizona, March 27. General [George] Crook, accompanied by his personal staff, Lieutenant [Marion P.] Maus’ command and Apache scouts, today met Geronimo and all the Chiricahuas twenty-five miles southeast of San Bernardino Springs, Sonora, Mex. General Crook would have no argument with Geronimo, but told him he must decide at once on unconditional surrender or fight to the death. Geronimo begged for the lives of himself and the hostiles. His band offered to surrender unconditionally whether Geronimo does or not.” ON MARCH 28, 1915, the Eagle reported, “Dr. S.S. Goldwater, commissioner of public health, yesterday announced that ‘Typhoid Mary’ Mallon, who, the commissioner said, was ‘the greatest typhoid germ carrier in the country,’ had been located in Corona, L.I., and this afternoon quarantined on North Brothers Island. ‘Typhoid Mary,’ the commissioner said, was released from North Brothers Island in 1910, after she had been there three years. Her case is a remarkable one in medical history; although not ill herself, she carries the typhoid infection with her.” ON MARCH 28, 1922, the Eagle reported, “The Brooklyn Army Supply Base, at 58th St. and 1st Ave., is in a fair way of becoming the greatest booze storage warehouse in the country. Already much has been accomplished toward bringing this to pass. In pursuance of orders issued from Washington, all the seized liquor in the hands of the Federal Prohibition authorities in Brooklyn was quietly transferred from the private storehouse of Burns & Hurley on 15th St., to the Army Base. A smaller amount taken by the customs officials also went there. The greater part of an entire building at 59th St. and 1st Ave. has been assigned by the Army authorities for storing away Volstead Act evidence. The move was made primarily in the interest of economy. Private warehouse charges were running up continually and the government will be able to eliminate these by making use of the surplus space in the Army buildings.” ON MARCH 28, 1947, the Eagle reported, “Washington, March 28 (U.P.) — Representative J. Parnell Thomas, chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, said today he has ‘definite’ proof that the American Communist party is directed from Moscow. The New Jersey Republican declined to elaborate on the nature of the evidence but said it would be disclosed in a report to be made public ‘today or tomorrow.’ ‘It will show definitely,’ he said, ‘that the Community party in America is an agency of a foreign government.’ FBI Chief J. Edgar Hoover told the committee previously that the American Communist party was a puppet outfit directed from Moscow. He said Communist orders came from Paris but that they were only relayed from Russia. Thomas also reaffirmed his intention to have the committee make a ‘thorough’ investigation of Communist infiltration of the Hollywood movie capital. Another member urged the committee to give first-priority to exposing Communists in government and labor unions.”
