Brooklyn’s backyard chickens: Where are they now? The set up at Imani Community Garden. Eagle photo by Alex Williamson

By Alex Williamson brooklyneagle.com

It’s been nearly a decade since Manny Howard published “My Empire of Dirt,” a memoir about transforming his Flatbush backyard into an urban farm and subsisting for a month off only the plants and animals he could produce there. It was books like Howard’s that sparked a surge of interest in urban agriculture — and, perhaps, a mild obsession within the New York media world with the backyard chickens of Brooklyn. Beginning around 2010, outlets like Gothamist, Bklyner and Edible Brooklyn started flocking to write trend pieces on chicken-keeping in the city. As recently as 2016, the City Chicken Meetup from Just Food had over 800 members, according to The New York Times. That group is no longer active. Victory Chicken, a Bedford-Stuyvesant startup that acted as an urban chicken-keeping one-stop-shop, is also defunct. If you Google “urban chickens” today, you’re as likely to find an article on the movement’s unintended consequences, like abandoned birds or a salmonella outbreak, as you are to find a glowing profile. So, were backyard chickens a passing fad, like feathered fidget spinners or cronuts with wings? Or is the movement alive as ever, now minus the press hype? It’s impossible to say how many of Brooklyn’s backyard chickens have flown the coop, but the Brooklyn Eagle did check in with some of the urban ranchers spotlighted in news stories at the height of the craze to see who’s still tending their flock. Martha Martha Lazar is intimately familiar with the media’s urban chicken fixation. Reporters from the Wall Street Journal,  New York Daily News,  South Brooklyn Post, NBC and ABC’s Nightline, among other outlets, stopped by her Cobble Hill home over the years to document the hens she kept in the backyard. 2 • Brooklyn Eagle • Thursday, July 25, 2019

“We joked they should have a publicist,” Lazar said. “It was ridiculous.” Lazar started keeping chickens around 2009 and writing about the experience on her blog. The misadventures detailed there include the time she was pecked in the eye by a chicken, the time a raccoon got its paws on one of her hens, leaving the bird with a nasty neck gash, the time she had to reach inside her chicken Edie to dislodge an egg from the bird’s abdomen and the time her hen LuLu started crowing like a rooster. Lazar says she loved the experience of urban chicken-keeping, but she no longer has birds. Around two years ago her final hen went to live across the street with some chicken-keeping neighbors, and she decided to devote her backyard to extra garden space. “It was a very natural time. Our neighbor was also down to one chicken, so it made a lot of sense to have them have a buddy. It was very organic,” she said. Isaac Isaac Esterman’s backyard chickens also had

a run-in with a raccoon. One night he heard a commotion and ran outside just in time to see the predator slinking away. His hens were unharmed, but the event took its toll nonetheless. “They were never quite the same after that. A little traumatized, a little more skittish, a little less friendly. Which I don’t really blame them for,” he said. Esterman and his chickens were profiled in a New York Post article in 2015, during his stint keeping three hens in Park Slope. Soon after, he moved to a house in Ditmas Park with his hens, but shifting life circumstances caused him to move again in short order — this time to an apartment without a yard. Fortunately for Esterman and the hens, his parents had some friends upstate who kept a flock of 30 or 40 chickens. Late at night he crept into the coop and placed his birds in a dog crate, then drove them to Columbia County and dropped them off at the farm the next day. “It’s probably a better situation for them up there,” Esterman said. “I went like three days later to kind of look for them, but I couldn’t see

them … It was sad. Because those are pets.” Simone Simone Mogul not only kept hens in her Prospect Park South backyard for 10 years, she made a nice little side profit selling their eggs. Brokelyn featured Mogul and her hens in a 2010 article. About a year ago, Mogul moved to Philadelphia, where it’s illegal to keep chickens. She dropped her last remaining bird, an elderly hen, off with a friend who kept a flock. “Driving down the NJ Turnpike with an older hen in the back felt a little funny, but I’m glad we got to re-home the one hen that was left after 10 years,” she told the Eagle in an email. Mogul is now pushing for legislation through Philadelphia’s City Council to legalize chicken-raising in the city. She’s hoping to have her coop up and running again by next spring. Loose hens The urban chicken-keeping movement is not without its critics. Mia Sacilotto says she rescued three abandoned hens near the Poly Prep Campus on the edge of Dyker Heights in December 2017. She found a home for two of the birds, Edna and Penelope, at Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, New York, and took the third, Coretta, to live in a micro-sanctuary in Bushwick. Sacilotto believes the birds were likely abandoned by urban chicken keepers. According to a spokesperson for Catskill Animal Sanctuary, that’s not uncommon, especially when keepers receive roosters — which, unlike hens, are illegal to keep within New York City limits. “In the last 30 days alone we’ve had two separate inquiries about roosters who need to be re-homed due to city ordinances,” the spokesperson told the Eagle in an email. According to the spokesperson, there are currently four chickens living at the sanctuary who were found wandering the streets of Brooklyn, and historically there have been “many more.” Continued on page 3


News Around the Boro BAY RIDGE — U.S. Rep. Max Rose (D-Southern Brooklyn-Staten Island) last week visited the Rio Grande Valley in Texas as part of a bipartisan Homeland Security delegation to examine migrants’ conditions at the Mexican border, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. The group visited facilities near McAllen Texas, including a Border Patrol station, processing center and holding facility. They also visited a Department of Health and Human Services shelter and let with local immigration activists. “Our tour was a powerful experience, and seeing the crisis firsthand only reaffirms what we all know and have seen reported — that human beings are suffering in our custody,” said Rose.  BOROUGHWIDE — The MTA plans to cut back service on three Brooklyn bus routes starting this fall, according to the Brooklyn Paper. Commuters on the B38, which runs from Bushwick to Downtown, will wait up to three minutes longer for buses on weekdays. The B43, which runs along Myrtle Avenue, will have fewer buses on weekdays except during evening rush hours. The B15, which goes from Bedford-Stuyvesant to JFK Airport, will have longer waits at middays on weekdays. To mitigate the loss of some buses, the MTA is adding longer, articulated buses to the B38.  CITYWIDE — NYCHA Federal Monitor Bart Schwartz released his first report Monday, according to NBC4. This team found that there have been 18 youths with high levels of lead in their blood so far this year. “NYCHA management has been less cooperative with respect to lead paint,” the report said. NYCHA’s calculations of where children under the age of 6 live within the city projects, the report continued, are based on unreliable or out-of-date information. “When we initially pressed on these and other issues, we met with resistance,” the report added.  CROWN HEIGHTS — Switching problems underneath the Eastern Parkway subway’s Franklin Avenue station, where the 5 and 2 trains branch off from the 4 and 3, caused some riders to be stuck underground for about two hours on Monday afternoon, according to Patch. Lights were on in the train and the air conditioning was working, said several straphangers’ tweets, but riders still were frustrated. The situation also caused long lines at other stations as people waited for trains to come in. The MTA warned riders to expect delays on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains as far away as Manhattan and the Bronx and suggested the B, Q, D and R trains as an alternative.  DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A man suspected of being a serial subway exhibitionist who has repeatedly been seen touching his nether regions while sucking his thumb has been arrested, according to the New York Post. Suspect James Hunt was chased down and tased at the Court Street-Borough Hall station in Brooklyn after resisting arrest on Saturday morning. Earlier, he had allegedly been seen masturbating outside the MTA booth at the station. On June 11, a woman snapped a picture of a person believed to be Hunt masturbating inside the same station, police said. Sgt. Chris O’Connell of the Transit Special Victims Unit said that combating serial subway sex crime offenders has been an “uphill battle” for police. “It’s terrifying for anyone, especially younger victims,” he told the Post.  EAST FLATBUSH — Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 1644 New York Ave. in East Flatbush, according to New York YIMBY. The lot, located between Glenwood Road and Avenue H, is three blocks east of the 2 and 5 trains’ Flatbush Avenue station. The building would have 36 apartments, most likely rentals, as well as a cellar and 12 enclosed parking spaces. Demolition permits for the one-family house that is now on the lot were filed this March. Edmond Hakimian is listed as the architect of record.  FLATBUSH — Rapper Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has launched a summer event that took place earlier this week at the Kings Theatre in Flatbush, which also starred his son Justin Combs, Charlemagne da God, Joe Budden, Remy Ma and others, according to the New York Post. In addition to performances, the event will include a live presentation of the TV show “State of the Culture” as well as a panel. This will be the kickoff event for Combs’ Revolt Summit, which, Combs said, “brings together artists, creators and executives to celebrate the culture and empower the community.” After the performance in Brooklyn, the Summit is traveling to Atlanta and Los Angeles.  FLOYD BENNETT FIELD — The biggest inflatable children’s “bounce house” in the world is coming to Aviator Sports and Events Center at Floyd Bennett Field for 10 days, beginning on July 26, according to the Brooklyn Paper. “It’s the biggest bounce house in the world — that’s according to the Guinness Brook of World Records,” said Cameron Craig, founder of Big Bounce America, the bounce house’s operator. The house features a ball pit, climbing towers, basketball hoops and a DJ station to keep the party hopping. “We’ve got a lot going on in

Culex mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus have been discovered in New York City Health Department monitoring traps in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, the city said Wednesday afternoon. The Health Department is urging people to protect themselves from mosquito bites using insect repellent and protective clothing. Above, workers with the New York City Health Department load bags of mosquito larvicide into pods on the side of a helicopter for aerial treatments in 2016. AP photo by Mark Lennihan there, from limbo competitions, dance competitions, dodgeball,” said Craig. Separate time slots for the house are arranged by age group: toddlers, children age 4-7, children age 8-14 and adults.  FORT GREENE — The Fort Greene Park Conservancy has hired its first-ever executive director — Rosamond Fletcher, according to the Brooklyn Paper. She comes to the conservancy after seven years as director of programs for the Design Trust for Public Space. “Fort Greene Park exists in a unique context with great socioeconomic diversity, so the conservancy has a responsibility to engage with all community members to balance priorities and build consensus,” she said. She looks forward to “talking to people in the park about their experiences in the park, what they care about and how the conservancy can strengthen their connection to the park.”  GOWANUS — An infant defecating in the city’s Douglass and DeGraw Pool in Gowanus shut down the facility in the midst of Saturday’s extreme heat wave, according to the New York Post. Patrons who showed up hoping to beat the heat were incensed with the news. Around 11 a.m., a line began to form outside the gates. After workers informed would-be pool goers of the closure, many of those on line decided to head for the Red Hook Pool instead. Temperatures topped 100 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday.  GREENPOINT — Hundreds of music superstar hopefuls lined up on Tuesday at the Brooklyn Expo Center on Noble Street in Greenpoint to audition for “American Idol,” according to ABC7. Justin Guarini, runner-up for the show’s first season, was on hand for the auditions. “Talent will take you only so far,” he said. “Your story is going to take you over the top.” Madison Vandenburg, who reached the final three last year, also had some advice for the contestants. “They should take a few minutes for themselves before the audition and just calm down and maybe even warm up a bit before they go on.” Eligible contestants must be between 18 and 25 years old.  MIDWOOD — U.S. Sen. and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ early life in Brooklyn taught him some valuable lessons in life, according to the Associated Press. Sanders recalled that he and his brother shared a trundle bed in his parents’ 3½-room apartment, and that the family, while not poor, lived “from paycheck to paycheck.” Losing his mother when he was 18 also made life difficult for Sanders and contributed to his desire to leave the community where he’d grown up. “Our parents for the most part were American-born, but our grandparents weren’t, and we knew what it was to struggle,” David Sillen, a classmate of Sanders, told the Associated Press. Sanders has described his family as “lower middle class” and has said his parents frequently quarreled over money.  PARK SLOPE — Learn to make your own neon signs at Brooklyn Glass, located at 13th Street and Third Avenue. Brooklyn Glass

co-founder Avid Ablon told CBS New York that, “You’re almost feeling like it’s dangerous, but it’s safe, so you almost end up with kind of an adrenaline high — playing with hot glass.” For $280, people can learn how to heat glass, how to blow it, how to bend it and how to handle it. “[The students] are very experienced in other fields — architecture, accounting, design — all sorts of things. But they come in to get their hands dirty and actually do something.”  PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A quirky Brooklyn can collector who lived out of her trash-filled car until recently, yet owns millions in Manhattan real estate, faces fines of $5,000 a day because she’s allowed a rowhouse she owns at 451 Convent Ave. to become totally rundown, according to the New York Post. The 122-year-old building has partially collapsed floors, holes in the roofs, missing skylights and windows, and other deteriorating features, city Landmarks Preservation Commission said. The woman, Lisa Fiekowski, told the Post she didn’t know about the lawsuit. She said the damage in the building arose after a fire next door many years ago. Fiekowski added that she was forced to give up her garbage-filled car after it broke down.  PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS — Jason “Kai” Jacobs, who was recently found guilty of pouncing on and beating to death 66-year-old Marc Faust outside the Food Corp. Deli on Rogers Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, spoke some chilling words in an interview on Rikers Island last Friday, according to popularcrime.com. “I don’t care about that guy,” Jacobs said. “I don’t owe him anything.” Jacobs insisted, despite evidence to the contrary, that Faust attacked him first. “I had to punch him however much as I needed to.” Prosecutors said the fight began after the two engaged in a “stare down” inside the bodega.  RED HOOK — After years of delay, barbecue master Billy Durney’s Red Hook Tavern, focusing on classic New York food, opened Friday. The restaurant-bar at 329 Van Brunt St. was inspired by some of Durney’s favorite restaurants and bars, such as Corner Bistro and McSorley’s Old Ale House, according to New York Eater. Among its offerings are dry-aged burgers, brick chicken, dry-aged strip steak, chicken liver pate, cheese and charcuterie, country ham croquettes and a romaine wedge salad with bacon. Durney is best known as a partner in Hometown BBQ, also on Van Brunt Street.  SUNSET PARK — Five months after an electrical fire at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Sunset Park cut off power and heat for prisoners for a week, the federal facility caught fire again last Friday afternoon, according to Gothamist. The fire broke out in a laundry room at the jail, but firefighters were able to put it out within an hour. Lawyers who were visiting clients at the jail when the fire broke out said that the facility went into lockdown and reported chemical smoke coming from the vents as they were escorted out of the building Six people suffered minor injuries and were taken to local hospitals for treatment, the FDNY said.

Graveyard Shift performance series coming to Green-Wood Cemetery BY ALEX WILLIAMSON EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Need a reason to live? Here’s one more thing to do before kicking the bucket: spend a summer evening contemplating your mortality at a moonlit show in Green-Wood cemetery. Green-Wood has teamed up with Pioneer Works to present Graveyard Shift, a performance series that will feature two site-specific shows this summer, commissioned for and inspired by the spooky setting. Experimental guitarist Yonatan Gat and the Eastern Medicine Singers, a traditional Algonquin pow wow group Gat has been collaborating with since 2017, will perform at the cemetery’s historic Cedar Dell on July 27. The group plays in a circular formation with the audience surrounding them, rather than keeping the performer on one side and the audience on the other. The circling will get downright concentric when the show comes to the center of Cedar Dell, where the tombstones are already arranged in a ring.

After the performance, the Native American group will lead the audience out of the cemetery with a drumline procession along a moonlit path. According to Gat, the evening will include music and chanting that’s meant in Algonquin tradition to commune with the dead, and which the group doesn’t normally perform in traditional venues. “It’s going to be a very intense experience,” said Gat. “One can’t help but kind of wonder about his own mortality and that of their loved ones in a situation like that. And part of the idea behind the series is to not fear those thoughts and to just accept them as perhaps a beautiful part about being alive.” Interdisciplinary artist and choreographer Kim Brandt will present her new dance performance piece, “Untitled,” at Cedar Dell on August 10. The work will feature performers collapsing mobile structures in “a rumination on circles, spheres, spirals and loops.” Brandt, who has performed at the Shed in Hudson Yards and MoMA PS1, created the

While it might sound odd for Green-Wood to find a second life as a concert venue as the graveyard begins to run out of burial space, Graveyard Shift is

really about getting back to the cemetery’s roots, according to the series’ co-organizer Bethany Tabor. Tabor points out that, in its early years, Green-Wood was something of a proto-Prospect Park and treated as much as

a picnic ground as a burial ground by the Victorians. “They had a very different relationship to death in that time period. Since then, that relationship has been diminished and harmed in my opinion.” said Tabor. “Events

and programs happening at the cemetery sort of brings us back to that time where we in Western society can mingle with each other and make the cemetery a social space again.” For tickets and info, visit here.

Eye on REAL ESTATE Come see the M-Crown area CB8 wants to rezone THE BOROUGH PRESIDENT SUPPORTS THIS PROPOSAL FOR NORTH CROWN HEIGHTS. By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams backs a neighborhood-led upzoning proposal in North Crown Heights — rezoning that, if enacted, would require developers to create space for job-generating light industrial and artisanal “maker” businesses and community facilities in new residential buildings.

Come take a stroll around the area that has been the focus of several years of effort by Community Board 8’s MCrown Subcommittee, which crafted the rezoning proposal. As the Brooklyn Eagle reported, Adams announced his support for it just last week and called it “a new model for mixed development.” Adams is part of a coalition of citywide advocates and community leaders that sup-

The Franklin Avenue Shuttle runs through the M-Crown zone. ports the proposed rezoning. The Department of City Planning is in talks with the M-Crown Subcommittee about the proposed rezoning. As last week’s Eagle story mentions, agency spokesperson Rachaele Raynoff said DCP is “pleased to continue to work with community boards, elected officials and neighborhood groups, including in Crown Heights, on creative solutions that bring more housing and good jobs, in a broad array of sectors, closer to more New Yorkers, and which allow an evolving

range of businesses to locate in close proximity to residences.” The area includes blocks bounded by Atlantic Avenue, Grand Avenue, Bergen Street and Franklin Avenue and a stretch of Atlantic Avenue that extends to Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights. It has interesting businesses in it plus a sprinkling of beautiful rowhouses and repurposed manufacturing buildings. It’s also riddled with vacant lots and empty industrial buildings — properties that present opportunities for development in which housing would cross-subsidize manufacturing space, M-Crown Subcommittee members believe. P.S. In case you didn’t know, CB8 represents the neighborhoods of North Crown Heights, Prospect Heights and Weeksville.

This is Long Island Railroad Sub-Station No. 1 on Atlantic Avenue.

For those of us who are eye-minded, getting a good look at the buildings and vacant lots in the M-Crown zone is a helpful way to draw our minds into this unfolding rezoning story. I did not make up the word “eye-minded.” Recently, it was Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day. According to that posting, eye-minded means “disposed to perceive one's environment in visual terms and to recall sights more vividly than sounds or smells, etc.” So. I strolled around the MCrown area and took pictures. I started on Bergen Street, whose north side is within the M-Crown zone. One thing that caught my eye was a vast grassy lot behind the Brooklyn Pentacostal Assembly. Another thing was redbrick 925 Bergen St., designed by architect John Platte and built in 1885. It’s part of a complex of buildings formerly owned by Nassau Brewery Co. They’re all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 10INB •• INBROOKLYN Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of July 25,Gazette 2019 • Week of July 25–31, 2019 10INB INBROOKLYN — — AA Special SpecialSection SectionofofBrooklyn BrooklynEagle/Heights Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint


Eye on REAL ESTATE The M-Crown zone is a mix of auto repair shops, industrial buildings and housing. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Now it’s time to check out Atlantic Avenue. The south side of this busy speedway is included in the M-Crown zone. There are numerous auto repair shops, service stations and car washes. There’s a surprise at 1020 Atlantic Ave. — a distinguished building known as Long Island Railroad Sub-Station No. 1.

New York City residents from a variety of cultural backgrounds would rather shop at live poultry markets than buy packaged chicken at grocery stores. Back on Dean Street, afternoon car traffic was backed up. Luckily I was on foot. I turned onto Grand Avenue and walked past a busy tire repair business to the corner of Pacific Street. On the corner at 977-985 Pacific St., there was a vacant field with weeds as tall as I am. I wonder if Elichai Pariente knows that a part of the lot’s chain-link fence has fallen down. Finance Department records show that he’s the authorized signatory of

The eye-catching house on the corner is 629 Classon Ave. — Continued from page 10INB — At Franklin Avenue I turned the corner and swung around to Dean Street. Arguably the M-Crown zone’s best known building is there — 1000 Dean St., which Brooklyn Flea co-founder Jonathan Butler and his partners turned into a hip office building a half-decade ago. The century-old building was formerly a service station for Studebaker cars.Butler and his partners recently sold 1000 Dean St. for $55.95 million to LIVWRK, city Finance Department records indicate.

Chickens chill in their coop on a hot day at Imani Community Garden. Eagle photos by Alex Williamson

Continued from page 2 Community chickens There’s another spot Brooklyn’s unwanted chickens tend to turn up: Imani Community Garden in Crown Heights, where volunteers take care of a community flock. “A lot of people in the city try backyard chicken-keeping and then decide it’s not necessarily for them,” said volunteer Becca Mason. “So we’ve got a couple foster chickens that came to us from unknown origins. They were just left here one day.” Another common source for the garden’s flock are science classes in local schools that hatch baby chicks without a plan for the animals once they grow into chickens. “What ends up happening is that 50 percent of them are roosters, so 50 percent of the things they’re hatching are illegal to have in the city,” said garden volunteer Robert Callahan. The garden is currently fostering one such rooster named Spike. Ac-

cording to Callahan, the DOH is “politely asking us to move it.” The volunteers host workshops at the garden for Brooklynites interested in backyard chicken-keeping, and warn them against some of the most common pitfalls. Callahan’s top two tips for aspiring urban chicken keepers are to find an ethical hatchery, by visiting in person if possible, and to be wary of secondhand Craigslist chickens, who may be too old to lay regularly or may spread illness to the rest of a flock. “You really can’t trust a human being who’s trying to get rid of chickens,” he said. When it comes to where Brooklyn’s backyard chickens are today, Mason has a lead — look up, she says. Toward the rooftops, that is. “We’ve had a couple people here who are putting them on the roof,” she said. “I’m wondering if it’s now evolving to the point where people don’t have backyards anymore.”

Becca Mason tends the community chickens at Imani Community Garden.

Bella Groff stumbled into the garden during an egg workshop and plans to start volunteering there. “I only eat backyard eggs,” she said. Thursday, July 25, 2019 • Brooklyn Eagle • 3


Eat and drink your way through Red Hook this Sunday By Scott Enman brooklyneagle.com

Steve’s key lime pie, Widow Jane whiskey and live music at Sunny’s Bar. Could a Sunday get much better? Probably not. Red Hook’s first-ever restaurant and bar tour hosted by Tastes of Brooklyn, the fundraising arm of nonprofit Seeds in the Middle, will be taking the neighborhood by storm this Sunday. Patrons can eat and drink at some longtime staples, as well as try out newer eateries. The event will feature distilleries like Van Brunt and Widow Jane, the Red Hook Winery, and neighborhood favorites like Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie, Fort Defiance, Brooklyn Icehouse, San Pedro Inn, Wet Whistle Wines, The Copper Pot, Mark’s Red Hook Pizza and Sunny’s Bar, which will have live music starting at 5 p.m.

The excursion, which aims to highlight immigrant-owned businesses, is aptly named the Red Hook Crawl — and crawling may be the preferred form of transportation for some, given the many watering holes taking part in the tour. Red Hook Winery and Wet Whistle Wines will be dishing out vino; Fort Defiance is making mojitos; Copper Pot is creating a cool peach liquor drink; Sunny’s is serving spicy margaritas; and Rocky Sullivan’s is concocting a spiked iced coffee. “I don’t think anyone is going to be able to walk home by the time we’re done with this thing,” said Nancie Katz, executive director of Seeds in the Middle, a group that empowers underserved children to make healthier life choices through exercise and nutritious food options.

United States District Court for the Southern District of New York SANWAR AHMED, Individually and On Behalf of All Others Similarly Situated, V. CITY OF NEW YORK, 17 CV 3044 NOTICE TO NEW YORK CITY MOBILE FOOD VENDORS: This settlement affects the rights of licensed or unlicensed New York City mobile food vendors who, in the three years preceding the filing of this lawsuit through and including the preliminary approval date of the stipulation, were issued a summons during the relevant time period and have had their nonperishable unpermitted vending equipment seized by the City of New York without the City of New York providing a voucher to enable retrieval of the seized property. If the settlement is approved, the City of New York will pay $585.00 to each class member who files a successful claim, with the possibility of a supplemental payment up to $415.00. Additionally, the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (“DOHMH”) shall conduct one additional training session on how to properly document and notice property seized from mobile food vendors, and establish when applicable new DOHMH staff members will be trained in due course after they are hired on properly documenting and noticing property seized from mobile food vendors.
