Brooklyn Eagle Local


By Scott Enman Brooklyn Heights Press

Sunlight floods into Alice’s Tea Cup’s newest location, an intimate café at the corner of Hicks and Middagh streets. Wooden stools shaped like mushrooms adorn the room. A playful turquoise couch sits below wallpaper covered with keys. A mischievous grin from the Cheshire Cat greets customers. The popular chain opened its first location in the borough on June 18. The Brooklyn Heights outpost offers the same variety of mouthwatering scones and tea as the other two locales, but its focus is more on coffee — and on an expanded selection of cakes, thanks to a massive basement kitchen. “We always wanted to take coffee as seriously as we take our tea, and it only took 18 years to do it,” co-owner Haley Fox told the Brooklyn Heights Press. The new spot, dubbed “Alice’s To Go,” since it won’t have full service like its other locations, seats about 12 people and offers coffee beans from Brooklyn Roasting Company. It will also cater wedding and birthday cakes. Fox said the inspiration for Alice’s, which she co-owns with her sister Lauren, came from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” — the book, not the movie, she’s quick to point out. “Our inspiration has always been this down-the-rabbit-hole experience where you’re having afternoon tea, but you don’t have your pinky up,” she said. “There’s no harp music playing. You don’t have to be proper.” The famous café appeared in the movie “Trainwreck” and has been mentioned in numerous books. Actors Amy Schumer and Katie Holmes are among its base of loyal customers. At Schumer’s stand-up show at Madison Square Garden, she jokingly reveals that her exercise regimen involves running around the reservoir in Central Park and then getting a scone at Alice’s. Holmes routinely brings her daughter Suri Cruise to a location in Manhattan. “It’s their afternoon tea tradition,” Fox said. The sisters opened their first location on the Upper West Side in 2001, signing the lease a day after 9/11.

Alice’s new location is an intimate corner cafe at 43 Hicks St. “A lot of New Yorkers thought it was very risky, but we felt it was the perfect time to offer something that was an escape from the hustle and bustle of New York,” Fox said. Roughly two years after opening the 73rd Street location, the business expanded to East 64th Street. Both have been successful, but creating a space in Brooklyn has always been the dream, according to Fox, who lives in Park Slope. “I never used to walk around Manhattan the way I walk around Brooklyn, especially this neighborhood,” she said. “Brooklyn Heights is so beautiful; I like how lowslung the buildings are. The light, the way it feels like a city, but has the space of a suburb, the quiet streets, the beautiful townhouses. There’s a community here.” Fox wants to make sure that community never leaves Alice’s hungry.

“Our inspiration has always been this down-the-rabbit-hole experience where you’re having afternoon tea, but you don’t have your pinky up,” Fox said. “We tried to make it so the people are really fed,” she said. “People think of tea salons and they think they’re going to get little sandwiches or tiny scones, but that’s not our model at all.” Mickaela Fouad, a Downtown Brooklyn resident, said she has fond memories of spending her 12th birthday party at Alice’s before a play — but only after another restaurant lost their reservation. “There were already 10 girls at our house and we were about to leave for the city to celebrate,” she said. “Of course, there was no record of our reservation. While my mom was having a meltdown, my dad somehow found Alice’s and shepherded everyone to the restaurant.

Alice’s scones are mouthwatering.

“I think my friends liked the finger sandwiches and tea better than the Broadway show. I can’t even remember what we saw that day. My parents still talk about how that restaurant saved the day for us.” While the store’s sandwiches are scrumptious, it’s the baked goods that take the cake (no pun intended). A lemon glaze or vegan chocolate coconut scone is the perfect foil for a cup of strong coffee. This cozier rendition of a tea room doesn’t feel posh or pretentious. It’s family-oriented and caters to a broad clientele. It’s a space to find some peace and quiet — though as a sign on the wall reminds the patrons: “We’re all mad here.” — Follow reporter Scott Enman on Twitter.


Brooklyn Book Festival unveils 2019 lineup By Alex Williamson Brooklyn Heights Press

Good news, bibliophiles: The Brooklyn Book Festival is returning Sept. 16-23, and the roster for the fest’s 14th installment is shaping up to be as diverse and packed with literary heavyweights as the borough it calls home. So far, more than 150 authors are slated to take part in BKBF, including big names in lit like Joyce Carol Oates, Rebecca Traister and Jonathan Safran Foer, festival Co-Producers Carolyn Greer and Liz Koch announced Wednesday night at the Center for Fiction. The number of participating authors is expected to grow to as many as 300 by the time the festival rolls around. Festival Day and the Literary Marketplace will take place on Sept. 22, and feature nearly 100 programs from authors of various genres and career levels across 14 stages in the vicinity of Borough Hall. Readers will get the chance to discover new books, get them autographed and attend panels on subjects ranging from race and sexuality to immigration and climate change. The eclectic programming is meant to give BKBF “something to offer every global citizen, young or old,” Brooklyn Literary Council Chair Johnny Temple said in a statement. For the fifth year, BKBF will host its Children’s Day at MetroTech Commons on Sept. 21. Young readers can watch illustrators compete onstage, dress up as their favorite characters, partake in writing workshops and meet the authors and artists behind the books they love. The big-name attractions for this year’s Children’s Day include Raúl Colón, the illustrator chosen to design the 2019 BKBF poster; Nick Bruel, Sarah Miynowski, Grace Lin and Ibi Zoboi. Children’s book author and illustrator Mo Willems is this year’s BoBi Award recipient, Koch announced. The honor is bestowed annually on an author whose work “speaks to the spirit of Brooklyn.” Past recipients include Colson Whitehead, Pete Hamill and John Ashbery. Willems, the three-time Caldecott Honor-winning author of “Don’t let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!” and “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale,” was

Brooklyn Book Festival Literary Council and committee members

selected as a nod to the fifth anniversary of the festival’s popular Children’s Day event, according to Koch. “We felt it would be a wonderful moment to honor an iconic children’s book author,” Koch said. A full week of “Bookend” events is also on the agenda. These events take place across all five boroughs in the leadup to Festival Day, and are produced through partnerships between the festival and cultural institutions across the city. This year’s Bookends events will include ‘Rum and Reason’ at the Caribbean Cultural Theatre, a

workshop on empowerment and activism from the Langston Hughes House and a canoe tour of the Gowanus Canal hosted by the Dredgers Club, featuring Walt Whitman readings. The Brooklyn Book Festival was launched in

2006 by the Brooklyn Borough President’s office to establish a “major literary event that embraced the diverse constituencies of New York City.” The festival programs are free and open to the public.

Look up: A DUMBO developer is growing trees on scaffolding By Lore Croghan Brooklyn Heights Press

Developers in DUMBO are trying a new approach to scaffolding: beautification. Greenery sprouted up above the sidewalk shed at DUMBO’s landmarked 42-50 Jay St. at the end of May. As it turns out, Alloy Development constructed a temporary sky garden, hoping to improve the aesthetics of the construction site. “Sidewalk sheds are always really tough on the neighborhood,” explained Alloy CEO Jared Della Valle. “I started thinking about how to make this shed more hospitable.” New York City requires all sidewalk sheds to be hunter green. The sheds are usually decried as eyesores by the communities in which they spring up, so Della Valle used the uniform color scheme to add a little charm.

In this view of the Green Shed, you can see Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet and GK Arts Center, which occupy the low-rise building at right. (INSET) One place to get a good look at the Green Shed is the corner of Plymouth Heights Press photos by Lore Croghan and Jay streets.

The “Green Shed” — designed by Future Green Studio, the Red Hook-based landscape designers behind the rooftop garden at the Empire Stores in Brooklyn Bridge Park — cost Alloy an estimated $75,000, Della Valle said. “I wanted to make a nice gesture for the community,” he added.

This community — DUMBO — is Alloy Development’s home turf. Della Valle has lived in the neighborhood for 20 years and has had his office here for 18. After the sidewalk shed is dismantled — likely in fall 2020 — the plants (grey birch trees, meadow grasses and Virginia creeper vines, to name a few) will be moved to the

property’s rooftop terrace. The firm is converting the historic property — once the site of a residential substance-abuse treatment center — into a 46-unit condo complex using 168 Plymouth St. as its address. Alloy bought the property in June 2018 and closed on the $52.25 million purchase in March, according to city Finance Department records.

At the back of the property, there’s a walled-in space that’s going to be turned into a leafy courtyard, which Future Green is also designing. Both 50 and 42 Jay St. were constructed by paint manufacturer John W. Masury & Son in 1891 and 1919-1021, respectively. Outside DUMBO, Alloy is known above all as the developer behind the coming skyscraper at 80 Flatbush Ave. in Boerum Hill, a project that generated both fierce opposition and fervent support. Within DUMBO, Alloy is known especially for its four completed neighborhood residential projects. The condo conversion at 168 Plymouth St. is its fifth. Some of its DUMBO developments are residential conversions of landmarked properties — no high-rise towers. But even mid-rise development work is disruptive on DUMBO’s narrow cobblestone streets. The sidewalk shed garden is a gesture of goodwill towards the neighbors. As a developer, Alloy is “a change agent” — but wants to “be as friendly as possible,” Della Valle said. People have sent thank-you emails and stopped him in the street to say they like the temporary garden. “This upholds our reputation in the neighborhood,” he said. “I’m thinking about being a good neighbor in DUMBO.” Alloy Development recently launched its marketing website for 168 Plymouth St. New York YIMBY reported that condo prices start at $1.4 million.

News Around the Boro BAY RIDGE — Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (R-Southern Brooklyn-Staten Island) last week applauded State Senate Democrats for pulling the Automatic Voter Registration Bill after finding a critical typo in the measure that would have forced non-citizens to register despite their ineligibility. The measure would have enabled agencies like the Department of Motor Vehicles, the Office of Children and Family Services, the Department of Health, the Department of Veterans Services and the Department of Labor to register residents to vote automatically. Malliotakis protested the passage of the bill, calling it the “Automatic Voter Fraud” bill. 

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Police have released video footage of a Citi Bike-riding gunman who shot a 24-yearold man and a 23-year-old woman in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A three-story, early 20th century building in Downtown Brooklyn with terra-cotta figures may be replaced by a 23-story tower, according to Curbed. The building, at 308-310 Livingston St., was built in 1911. In October, architecture firm Fogarty Finger filed an application to build a 23-story building, and in May the firm filed another application for full demolition. The current building was once used as a meeting place for followers of the Bahai religion. The new building would have 160 units, a rooftop deck and a fitness center. 

EAST FLATBUSH — Brownstoner recently looked back at four of the real-estate website’s featured Brooklyn listings from six months ago, focusing on homes in East Flatbush, Windsor Terrace and Ditmas Park. A two-story brick row-

house in East Flatbush sold in May for $665,000, which was $44,000 below the asking price. A fifth-floor co-op in Brooklyn Heights, which has four rooms and views of trees and neighboring gardens, sold for $1.31 million, $60,000 above the asking price. Another building, a circa-1900 limestone townhouse in Windsor Terrace that faces Prospect Park, sold in February for $2,787 million, $8,000 below the asking price. 

EAST NEW YORK — A billboard is going up in Brooklyn to help police find a boy who went missing more than nine years ago, according to CBSNewYork. The billboard, which is located near the apartment building on Pennsylvania Avenue in East New York that was his home when he disappeared, shows a photo of how he looked at age 7 when he disappeared and a computer-aided image showing how he would look today, at age 16. Investigators believe he may still be in Brooklyn, police said. 

OCEAN HILL —Permits have been filed for an eight-story, mixed-use building at 1520 Broadway in Ocean Hill, according to New York YIMBY. The building, on the corner of Hancock Street and Broadway, would be near the J train’s Halsey Street subway station. The developer of record is MacQuesten Development, while the architect is listed as GLUCK+. The building would contain 108 apartments, probably rentals, as well as 9,002 feet of commercial space. 

PAPERWORKS AT DIEU DONNÉ

Art CASEY JOHN OPSTAD: THE INVISIBLE HAND Casey Opstad was born and raised in Grand Forks, North Dakota. He attended graduate school at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Upon graduation, he moved to New York City and painted and drew murals and did commission work for clients in the area. Clients Casey has worked for in the last five years include: PayPal, New York Department of Transportation, DUMBO Improvement District, General Assembly, Kenneth Cole, Venmo, Bitly, and New York University. When: Thursday, June 27th, 5:30 – 8 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Gallery Cubed (DUMBO Archway)

SEEING THINGS AS THEY REALLY ARE: THREE-DIMENSIONAL

This group exhibition mines the archive and examines the rich history of sculpture and three-dimensional papermaking at Dieu Donné. Since 1976, Dieu Donné has been on the forefront of an artistic movement to challenge the notion of paper as mere support of the image. The choice to create dimensional works in paper pulp is not just for its aesthetic and physical qualities but for the powerfully subversive, humorous, political, and emotional associations that paper and the printed word embody. Artists in this exhibition include Lynda Benglis, Mark Bradford, David Kennedy Cutler, E.V. Day, Lesley Dill, Ming Fay, Rosemarie Fiore, Ethan Greenbaum, Ann Hamilton, Jim Hodges, Lael Marshall, Saul Melman, Timothy E. Palmer, Brie Ruais, Jean Shin, Michael St. John, Richard

SPRING! COILED & READY! An exhibition featuring artists living and working in New York City. The word “spring” conjures up a myriad of definitions. It is at once a season, an object and an action. This exhibition seeks to explore the literal and metaphorical aspects of the concept through paintings, drawing, sculpture … and of course, color and form. When: Saturdays & Sundays through July 7th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Red Hook/Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (481 Brunt Street)

SKATE-HOMIES Clarence K. has captured today’s New York City skateboarder in the most honest and realist way. His weekly visits to skate parks throughout the city have produced stunning portraits of this unique community. The work depicts a modern tribe that is blind to race,

DON’T FOLLOW THE WIND: NON-VISITOR CENTER Beyond the threshold of the inhabitable, how does culture contest the crippling effects of long-term catastrophe? Don’t Follow the Wind is a project situated inside the radioactive Fukushima exclusion zone in Japan, the inaccessible area surrounding the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant, established in the wake of the 2011 disaster that contaminated

the environment separating residents from their homes, land, and community. As radiation knows no borders, transported on wind and water currents, it is a form of contamination that implicates us all in its unseen isotopic presence.

On the contrary, many of the works feel expansive and ambitious, despite the physical constraints of being “small”.

Since at least 1855, when Walt Whitman published his epic poem Leaves of Grass at a print shop in Brooklyn Heights, there has been a significant – if often overlooked – LGBTQ presence in the borough, much of it clustered along the waterfront, where industrial jobs, cheap housing, and urban anonymity life provided unique opportunities for

The exhibition draws its title from the rallying words of transgender artist and activist Marsha P. Johnson, underscoring both the precariousness and the vitality of LGBTQ+ communities. The exhibition presents twenty-eight LGBTQ+ artists born after 1969 whose works grapple with the unique conditions of our political time, and question how moments become monuments.

to pirates, runaway slaves, and smugglers; its churches were turned into hospitals, its warehouses into jails, and its cemeteries into pleasure gardens. Even our rivers played a part, allowing us to be surrounded with fireships, floating pens for prisoners of war, and, briefly, the French navy. The British occupied NYC for seven years, longer than any other part of what would soon become the United States. It was also the last place they left, not until over two years after their ‘final’ defeat. New York City during the American Revolution is the story of people like William Franklin, Ben’s illegitimate and disgraced son; Colonel Tye, a black raider who led a feared guerrilla force; and Haym Salomon, a Jewish Polish immigrant who used his language skills to spy for George Washington. You think you know the American Revolution? Think again! Not all history happens on the battlefield – though we have one of those, too. The Battle of Brooklyn was the largest military engagement of the entire war. Come learn about the archaeology and history of New York City in the American Revolution. Whether you’ve already seen Hamilton or couldn’t afford tickets, this is the class for you. When: Monday, July 1st, 6:30

Eye on REAL ESTATE Take a stroll through Weeksville, the neighborhood WEEKSVILLE HERITAGE CENTER IS THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE AREA By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Weeksville Heritage Center is a cultural jewel, a living reminder that an independent free black community thrived in preCivil War Brooklyn. Its landmarked houses, powerful witnesses to history, have been on my mind in recent weeks as the center’s executives carried out an emergency CrowdRise funding campaign to keep the Crown Heights museum open. The oldest of these houses on Hunterfly Road dates back to the 1840s. On June 14, there was dramatic news: The city designated Weeksville Heritage Center as a member of the Cultural Institutions Group. This was the first time in 20 years a new member had been brought into the group. Membership affords a real shot at financial stability through unrestricted operating grants from the city Department of Cultural Affairs, which also pays the institutions' heat, light and water bills. City Councilmembers Laurie Cumbo and Robert Cornegy and Council Speaker Corey Johnson and the Brooklyn Black Elected Officials urged the de Blasio Administration to make it happen. The designation made Weeksville Heritage Center the first black Brooklyn institution on the group’s roster — which was a “huge honor,” the center’s President and Executive Director Rob Fields told me in an interview that day.

Weeksville Heritage Center is the crown jewel of Weeksville the neighborhood.

Nearby, there’s a metal sculpture hanging over the door of 1779-1781 Pacific St. The sculpture depicts six industrial workers. This is the Piscopo & Nogara Iron Works. Nogara Group bought the site for $70,000 in 2006 and constructed the building, city Finance Department and Buildings Department records indicate.

TWO FINE FIREHOUSES

IRONWORKS NEAR THE COMMUNITY GARDENS So. Did you know Weeksville is used as a neighborhood name even today? The City of New York includes it on its map of Community District 8, which Community Board 8 serves, along with North Crown Heights and Prospect Heights. Weeksville is located within the easternmost section of Crown Heights on the border of Brownsville. Weeksville the neighborhood consists of the blocks surrounding Weeksville the museum, which is at 158 Buffalo Ave. If you start walking on Atlantic Avenue and stroll the streets parallel to it between Troy and Ralph avenues, you can’t go wrong.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Weeksville’s got lots of beautiful old housing stock. One of the things you’ll see on a Weeksville walk is Imani Community Garden II. It’s on the corner of Pacific Street and Schenectady Avenue. It’s the nearby neighbor of Imani Community Garden, which is the home of the chickens I recently photographed.

As you keep walking, soon you’ll find an old-fashioned firehouse at 1472 Bergen St. This is the Rescue Company No. 2 building, constructed in 1893. There’s a painting on the garage door dedicated to the memory of Firefighter Louis J. Valentino Jr. He died in 1996 while searching for wounded firefighters during a blaze at an illegal chop shop in Flatlands. As you know if spend time in Brooklyn’s waterfront neighborhoods, Louis J. Valentino Jr. Park and Pier in Red Hook is named for him. It’s a good place to go for views of the Statue of Liberty.

Eye on REAL ESTATE

Take a stroll through Weeksville, the neighborhood WEEKSVILLE HERITAGE CENTER IS THE HEART AND SOUL OF THE AREA — Continued from page 14INB — By the way, Rescue 2 has built itself a new firehouse on Sterling Street in Ocean Hill. The cast concrete and terra-cotta building is designed as a training facility, with features like a bridge, a manhole and a trench that simulates a subway tunnel. But back to Weeksville. Further down Bergen Street, on the corner of Ralph Avenue, Engine 227’s eye-catching firehouse can be found.

A CHURCH THAT WAS A STATION ON THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD The streets of Weeksville are dotted with beautiful churches. For instance, there’s Berean Baptist Church at 1635 Bergen St. The portion of it that was built in 1894 stood in shadow the afternoon I took my Weeksville stroll. So instead of photographing it, I snapped a picture of the more modern portion of this house of worship, which was constructed in 1960. The church was established in 1850 — and was a station on the Underground Railroad, its website says. A second church that caught my eye was the Greater Bibleway Temple on the corner of Rochester Avenue and Lincoln Place. The late-afternoon sun lit up its pale brick facade. The Bibleway Church has been located at this building since 1973, its website says.

The Maynard Co-Ops at 1509 Bergen St. have eye-catching window bays.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Architect E.M. Adelsohn designed the Greek Classical Revival-style building.

ST. MARY’S HOSPITAL IS BEING TURNED INTO A NURSING HOME

Here’s a glimpse of Berean Baptist Church. Architectural history expert Suzanne Spellen said in a 2014 Brownstoner.com story that the stunning church at 261 Rochester Ave. was built as Temple Petach Tikvah in 1914 and 1915.

The day I took my stroll, athletes were busy at St. John’s Park, which is packed with playing fields. A colorful mural on the back wall of St. John’s Recreation Center brightened the scenery. I didn’t go inside the venerable rec center, which has been in existence since 1956. But the city Parks Department’s website mentions there’s a swimming pool, which sounds pretty great this time of year. I saw all kinds of lovely old-fashioned housing stock in Weeksville. For example, there’s a hilly block on Lincoln Place between Buffalo and Ralph avenues that’s very picturesque. And when I strolled down Prospect Place, I got an eyeful of a bright new facade on the mammoth building that was formerly St. Mary’s Hospital. Centers Health Care is converting the seven-story building into a 281-bed nursing home, a 2016 project recommendation written by Borough President Eric Adams says. The property, whose address is 170 Buffalo Ave., was the last Catholic hospital left in Brooklyn when it closed in 2005. The building was constructed in the 1970s. Before that, St. Mary’s facility on this site had been built in the 1870s.

This Week in History

On June 26, 1844, President John Tyler married Julia Gardiner in New York City. In its June 27 edition, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The bride is said to be accomplished, beautiful, interesting, an heiress, and 22 — the President, on the other hand, is known to be as homely as a brush fence, and 55 years of age, being a difference of 33. Some of his children, therefore, are probably many years older than their step-mother.� President John Tyler Library of Congress photo via Wikimedia Commons Tyler, the 10th president (1841-45), was born in 1790 and died in 1862. He and his first wife Letitia (1790-1842) had eight children. He and Julia Gardiner had seven children. Their son Lyon (1853-1935) was married twice, the second time to Sue Ruffin, who was 35 years his junior. Lyon and Sue had three sons, two of whom — Lyon Gardiner Tyler, Jr. (born 1924) and Harrison Ruffin Tyler (born 1928) — are still living.

It’s time to close THE DIGITAL DIVIDE Too much of America has been overlooked, underserved, and left out of the digital revolution. Today, 24 million Americans have no access to reliable, affordable high-speed internet. Digital voids can exist anywhere, from rural communities to large cities, creating immeasurable gaps in education, health care and employment. If our merger is approved, the New T-Mobile can change that by lighting up the country’s first real, truly nationwide, broad and deep 5G network, delivering a higher quality, more robust network. The combined spectrum from T-Mobile and Sprint will allow us to build a true in-home broadband competitor, bringing better service, lower prices, and real choice to America. Together, we can close the Digital Divide holding millions of people back and bring the digital revolution to all Americans.

That will be the power of the New T-Mobile.
