Hotel Makeover for Coney Island’s Shore Theater Heads Back to The Drawing Board Landmarks Preservation Commission Calls for Minor Design Changes By Lore Croghan The Record

Coney Island’s long-abandoned Shore Theater is going to be fixed up and adaptively reused, and that’s cause for rejoicing. But not quite yet. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission decided on Tuesday that Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects’ proposed redesign of the old movie palace and office building at 1301 Surf Ave. is “timid” and “generic.” Several commissioners used these words in critiquing the plan during a hearing at the preservation agency’s Manhattan headquarters. They’re pleased Pyotr Yadgarov’s company Pye Properties intends to bring the neoRenaissance Revival property back to life as a hotel and spa.

Pye Properties’ proposed conversion of the Shore Theater into a hotel. The hotel rooms will be constructed inside the seven-story office building. The spa will be constructed inside the theater — a design that the commissioners are not so pleased about. Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel’s design has erased all hints that a movie theater ever exist-

ed at the property on the corner of Surf and Stillwell avenues, several commissioners said. So some want architect Randy Gerner to restore and retain the distinctive fire stairs that zigzag along the exterior of the movie theater.

THE

RECORD of

LAW & COMMERCE

Founded in 1938

The Sign Was a Victim of Superstorm Sandy

“Commerce defies every wind, outrides every tempest, invades every zone.” * The Brooklyn Record of Law and Commerce (USPS 067-080, ISSN 2329-0064) is published 50 times a year, except last week of August and the last week of December by EBrooklyn Media, 16 Court Street, 30th Floor, Brooklyn, NY 11241. Subscription price is $50 per year. Telephone (718) 643-9099, ext: 103. Periodicals Postage paid at Brooklyn, NY Postmaster.

“That hunk of metal is a very noticeable feature” for those who approach the building on Stillwell Avenue, Commissioner Michael Goldblum said. Others said, if that’s not possible, create some visual echo of the stairs. Or come up with a mural or some other creative concept for the outside of the theater building that reminds people it’s located in Coney Island. Gerner said at the hearing that the fire stairs are in poor condition and can’t be saved.

Several commissioners took issue with the redesign’s erasure of the zigzagging exterior stairs. Brooklyn Eagle file photo by Lore Croghan

Another design element that earned commissioners’ criticism was a vertical cloth banner with the name “Shore Hotel” that would hang on the corner of the building. The low-key fabric sign would replace a brightly lit blade sign that spelled out the word “SHORE” in capital letters. Superstorm Sandy damaged the iconic sign, so the property’s prior owner removed it. Before that, the sign said “LOEW’S,” because 1301 Surf Ave. housed a Loew’s movie theater for five decades. Landmarks Chairwoman Sarah Carroll said the architects are actually “very close” to having a design plan that can win commissioners’ approval.

RIP Thunderbolt The Shore Theater has belonged to Pye Properties since December 2015. The developer bought it for $14 million, city Finance Department records indicate. The seller was Kansas Fried Chicken Inc. with Jasmine Bullard as president. Bullard is the daughter of the late Horace Bullard, a real estate investor who owned multiple Coney Island properties and wanted to turn the Shore Theater into a hotel and casino. His development plans for Coney Island were thwarted at every turn. For instance, in 2000, the Giuliani Administration illegally demolished the Thunderbolt roller coaster, which belonged to Bullard. The movie theater was closed by the time Bullard bought it in 1979. Did you know it was a porn theater for a short while? Reilly & Hall, a high-profile theater architecture firm of yesteryear, designed the property, which was built in 1925. Chanin Construction Co. was its original owner. 2 | Brooklyn Record of Law and Commerce | Week of January 17, 2019

Gallery (213 Bond Street)

BONNIE COLLURA PRINCE

Bonnie Collura’s sculptural installation Prince critiques our culture’s pattern of repeating iconic characters, gestures, and polarizing traits to create heroes.

When: Daily through January 2019, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/BAM Peter Jay Sharp Building (30 Lafayette Street)

A solo exhibition and sale of Tom Bennett’s artwork. Tom Bennett’s artwork is recognizable for its impassioned brushwork, bold compositions, and rich subject matter. His work embraces art history, abundant with homages to heroic works, bucking horses and classical nudes. In addition to his dynamic paintings, Tabla Rasa will feature a series of unframed mono-types for acquisition by both the seasoned and novice collector. Among them are images of figures that seem to breathe with life force, and storms that roil on the horizon. Mono-types, a form of print in which an image is created on a plate and then transferred to paper, is an ideal vehicle for the spontaneity of Mr. Bennett’s drawing talents. The inked plate yields only one “unique” image, not an edition of multiples as in other printmaking techniques.

It’s a story that Ted Grayson has reported time and time again in his job as a network TV anchor: the public downfall of those at the top. He just never imagined that it would happen to him. After his profanity-laced tirade is caught on camera, his reputation and career are destroyed, leaving him without a script for the first time in years. While American viewers may have loved and trusted Ted for decades, his family certainly didn’t: His years of constant travel and his big-screen persona have frayed all of his important relationships. At the time of his meltdown, Ted is estranged from his wife, Claire, and his adult daughter, Franny, a writer for a popular website. Franny views her father’s disgrace with curiosity and perhaps

Eye on SHEEPSHEAD BAY

Seen in Sheepshead Bay: Birds of a feather flock together. INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

Come See Birdland, AKA Sheepshead Bay By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Hail to thee, blithe Spirit! Bird thou never wert. — Percy Bysshe Shelley

Emmons Avenue is one of the best places in town for our fine feathered friends to find a good snack. Folks love the birds that flock to the Sheepshead Bay shoreline — and feed them well.

The other day, when we were strolling along the avenue, especially animated swans and seagulls were bickering over a bagel. We were going to refer to them as a bevy of swans and a colony of gulls. We found these expressions on a list of collective nouns for animal and bird groups. But whenever we see lists like this, we're never sure if they're real, or a piece of satire produced by the Onion. For instance, can you say “a shiver of sharks” with a straight face? How about “an intrusion of cockroaches” — doesn't that sound like a made-up expression? But back to Emmons Avenue. Sometimes, when people get especially enthusiastic about casting their bread upon the waters, the avid gulls look a little bit like they're rehearsing a scene from “The Birds.” The rest of the time, the gulls are nonthreatening. They line up single-file on a railing at the water's edge as though they're posing for photos.

A FAVORITE FOOTBRIDGE Another picturesque spot for the birds to perch is the Ocean Avenue Footbridge. As of course you know, the wooden walkway connects Emmons Avenue and neighboring Manhattan Beach's Shore Boulevard. The footbridge is a deep shade of blue like a crayon. It opened in 1880. The railroad executive and developer who commissioned the footbridge, Austin Corbin, was a vile man who's remembered for his anti-Semitism. According to the Hidden Waters blog, Corbin tried to have the bridge torn down to keep Jews and other minorities away from Manhattan Beach, where he'd built a snobby hotel. Opponents stood up to him and saved the bridge.

THE RHEINGOLD BREWERS' SUMMER HOUSE Besides being Birdland, Emmons Avenue is Boatland, too. Some of Sheepshead Bay's prettiest sailing vessels are tied up right by the sidewalk. You can pose for selfies with birds and boats in a single backdrop.

Other boats are tucked away behind the walls of private clubs. One has a clubhouse that's particularly picturesque even if you see it only from the sidewalk. The family that brewed Rheingold Beer back in the day had a summer house at 3076 Emmons Ave. It's now the gathering place for members of the Sheepshead Bay Yacht Club, which was founded in 1908, the club's website says.

— Continued on page 11INB —

SHEEPSHEAD BAY: HISTORY Sheepshead Bay remained undiscovered by European settlers during much of Brooklyn’s early development. The Canarsee Indians inhabited the land for almost 150 years after nearby Gravesend was settled in 1643. In the 18th century, the Wyckoff and Lotts families held land grants and built farms in the area, eventually drawing settlers to the shore. The neighborhood’s popularity began to increase during the early 19th century when wooden cottages were built along the rim of Sheepshead Bay inlet and a sheltered anchorage for small local boats was built. Local restaurants helped attract visitors with fresh seafood and two hotels were built to accommodate the incoming tourists. Development quickened during the 1870s when New York railroad lines were extended into Sheepshead Bay and during the 1920s and 1930s, new residential and commercial development transformed the neighborhood. Piers were built as a Works Progress Administration project, housing was constructed and modernized and Emmons Avenue was widened and paved. New cars in Brooklyn during this period and the Belt Parkway reaching the area in 1941 brought even more traffic, turning the bay into the fastest growing community in Brooklyn by the 1960s. —Norm Goldstein

Eye on SHEEPSHEAD BAY

Birds bob serenely in the waters of Sheepshead Bay. In the middle distance, old-fashioned rowhouses line Emmons Avenue.

SHEEPSHEAD BAY What is this sheepshead that gave its name to this neighborhood? You might well ask. No, it is not the head of a sheep. And no, it is not a card game. This sheepshead is a fish, an edible fish generally considered a southern species, its usual habitat running from the mid-Atlantic to Texas. It’s not found here much anymore, but was probably around in greater numbers when the Canarsies lived and fished here before the arrival of Europeans more than 400 years ago. Separated from the eastern part of Coney Island by the bay that bears the name, the area was settled as part of the English town of Gravesend in 1643. It remained primarily a rural area — the Wycoff and Lotts families built farms in the area— until the beginning of the 19th century. Summer tourists came for the fishing and boating after Sam Leonard’s Hotel was built in 1843 and, two years later, Tappen’s Hotel went up. In the late 1870s and 1880s, the Manhattan Beach branch of the Long Island Rail Road, along with the Brooklyn, Flatbush and Coney Island Railroad (today’s BMT Brighton Line), the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge and Ocean Parkway, all helped make the neighborhood more accessible. The Sheepshead Bay Race Track was opened by the Coney Island Jockey Club in Sheepshead Bay and gambling flourished. In 1915, horses gave way to cars with the building of the Sheepshead Speedway on the same site. (In 1919, it became a housing development.)

INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan

Come See Birdland, AKA Sheepshead Bay — Continued from page 10INB — Beer drinkers and nostalgia buffs know that Rheingold's brewery was in Bushwick. The property is the site of a residential mega-development. As for the Emmons Avenue clubhouse, it has two porches.

WATERFRONT LUNCHES, 12 MONTHS A YEAR If you don't have a waterfront home or a yacht-club membership, another way to get an up-close look at Emmons Avenue's shoreline scenery is by eating lunch in the neighborhood. There are eateries with glassed-in back porches so you can sightsee 12 months a year. A Turkish restaurant called Liman has water views, and so does Italian restaurant Il Fornetto. The other day we got a seat right by the waterside windows at Rocca Cafe. Even on a sunless, freezing afternoon, the boats docked right outside were beautiful.

The Belt Parkway, on the southern edge, reached the area in 1941. In the northern sections of Sheepshead Bay are the subdivisions of Homecrest and Madison. Sheepshead Bay also encompasses Plumb Beach (named for its beach plums), now part of the Gateway National Recreation Area. —Norm Goldstein

You Should Know This Fun Facts: New York Eats

• According to the Michelin Guide (2008) there are about 26,000 restaurants in New York City, with a total of 54 Michelin stars. • The 'Big Apple' got its name in the 1920s from the horse racing courses in New York City and its surrounding area. There were many big money races at these race tracks, and an 'apple' was something desirable - hence the big money tracks had a 'big apple'.

718-444-1784 888-858-3445 www.altpest.com office@altpest.com 479 72nd St., Bklyn, NY 11209 Brooklyn Dailiy Eagle cover from Jan. 17, 1952 ON JAN. 17, 1952, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “A tumultuous welcome greeted the reluctant hero of the greatest of modern sagas of the sea today. The city’s millions poured forth a thunderous ovation as Capt. Henrik Kurt Carlsen, master of the ill-starred Flying Enterprise, took over a new command – skipper of the good ship New York. The modest hero wore a winning smile as he greeted cheering Brooklynites along his route from Brooklyn Heights to Bay Ridge and, after a Coast Guard cutter trip across the Upper Bay, rode up Broadway, ‘Canyon of Heroes,’ to City Hall. The man who stayed with his listing, sinking ship through 14 days of stormy seas rode up Broadway through storms of ticker tape and confetti. Seated atop the rear seat of an open car, Carlsen waved his gold-braided cap while tons of ticker-tape and torn papers streamed down on him from Broadway skyscrapers.”  ON JAN. 17, 1921, the Eagle reported, “The second attempt of the Brooklyn City Railroad to put into effect a double fare on its Flatbush line for passengers riding beyond Foster Ave. was made today without a recurrence of the riots of last summer. Evidently realizing the futility of offering physical resistance to the railroad officials in view of the latter’s victories in the courts, the public adopted a new weapon – the boycott. The second fare charge went into effect at 5 a.m. From that hour on, car after car of the line, watched by impartial observers, made the two-mile trip from the car barns at Avenue N and E. 49th St. without a single passenger.”

• The waterfront on both sides of the East River in Manhattan and Brooklyn were full of breweries. By the mid 1800s, the Turtle Bay cove had been infilled and was packed with breweries, slaughterhouses, industrial uses and slums, and was one of the most polluted places in the city. This land would be purchased and redeveloped into the United Nations.

Fun Facts: New York Beverages • It was once considered safer to drink beer than the water in NYC. The Croton Aqueduct was completed in 1842 and as proof of the extent of the feat, the celebration of its opening lasted all day with a 50-foot fountain of water in City Hall Park. Prior to that, “beer was considered safer to drink than water”

“Singing with Rock Voices has helped me to take risks, follow my passions, and make deeply meaningful friendships.” -Elyse Langer-Smith, shown singing with the Northampton, MA choir

Started seven years ago in Massachusetts, Rock Voices provides a safe space for self expression and community in an increasingly disjointed world; an outlet for the soul. The mission of Rock Voices is “to heal ourselves and others through song.” Therapists often “prescribe” the group as a road back to wellness to clients who are struggling with depression and anxiety, and with good reason. There are precious few opportunities for adults to nd community and make new friends. Rock Voices adds the healing power of music to that mix, and magic happens. Friendships are forged, community forms, and members ride the wave to lives changed for the better. The Brooklyn Heights group will be directed by local performer and music educator Marianne Cheng and will meet Tuesday nights from 7-9 pm at First Unitarian Congregational Society, with the rst rehearsal January 29. Enrollment continues throughout February. Prospective members can sing for up to three weeks before committing. Tuition fees each season are comparable to other classes in the arts, and scholarships are available to those who demonstrate need. Every effort is made to make the choir accessible to all who want it in their lives. Curious? Go to a rehearsal and try it out. Find out if Rock Voices is what has been missing from YOUR life. (Brooklyn not convenient? If you live near Syosset, you can join the brand new chapter there on Thursday nights, starting January 31!) Learn more and pre-register at:  www.RockVoices.com

When: Tuesdays, 7-9pm starting January 29 Where: First Unitarian Congregational Society in Brooklyn Heights

Hon. Ingrid Joseph Installed As Bk Supreme Court Justice By Rob Abruzzese The Record

Hon. Ingrid Joseph officially became a Brooklyn Supreme Court justice when she was sworn in during an installation ceremony held at St. Francis College in Brooklyn Heights on Tuesday. Justice Joseph was surrounded by family as her former boss, Hon. Mark Partnow, performed the official ceremony in front of roughly 150 judges, lawyers, court employees and other family and friends. “When we had to make selections this year in the County Executive Committee, it was unanimous that [Justice Joseph] be moved up to the position of justice of the Supreme Court,” said Hon. Frank Seddio, the leader of the Brooklyn Democratic Party. “That is significant — because it’s not easy in these times where many people don’t agree.”

Justice Joseph, a native Brooklynite who graduated from Prospect Heights High School, John Jay College and New York Law School, has returned to the same Supreme Court where she served as an acting justice from 2012 until 2017. She left last year to replace Justice Reginald Boddie, who was elevated to the Supreme Court last year, as the supervising judge of the Kings County Civil Court. Judge Carolyn Walker-Diallo has replaced Justice Joseph as the supervising judge of the Civil Court. District leader Olanike Alabi hosted the ceremony on Tuesday. Saint Thomas Jacques performed the Pledge of Allegiance, Wendy Gilgeous sang the national anthem and the black national anthem, and Rev. Rene John performed the invocation and benediction. Ingrid Lewis-Martin presented Justice Joseph with a citation on behalf of the Brooklyn borough president.

CONTINUED FROM INSIDE BACK PAGE The group of speakers included Hon. Frank Seddio, former Councilmember Dr. Una S.T. Clarke, Helene Blank, Hon. Lawrence Knipel, Gregory Cerchione, Charles Small and Rudyard F. Whyte. “I’ve known Judge Ingrid for 30 years or so, and I’m overcome with pride to the point of tears,” said Whyte. “You epitomize everything I think of when I think of what a judge should be. “Over the years I’ve watched you dispense justice with fairness, evenness, compassion and — a word not heard often in the courtroom — love. You are a credit to this country, to this state

and to this nation. It is immigrants like you who make America great.” Many of the speakers praised Justice Joseph’s humility, which she demonstrated by playfully shaking her head throughout Dr. Clarke’s speech as the former councilmember spoke about the judge moving up to the U.S. Supreme Court one day. Prior to joining the bench, Justice Joseph worked as a principal law clerk, primarily to Hon. Nicholas Clemente and then to Hon. Mark Partnow for approximately six years. It was Partnow who swore her in nine years ago when she was elected to the Civil Court bench, and he

beamed as he had the opportunity to install her into the same court in which he now sits. “Ingrid is one of the most compassionate and caring individuals that I know,” Justice Partnow said. “She is respected as a lawyer and — more importantly — as a person. She recognizes that she is dealing with people who need to be listened to, understood and appreciated. Ingrid has a great temperament, great knowledge of the law and unquestionable integrity.”
