AMAZON EYEING PARK’S INDUSTRY CITY

Amazon is reportedly in search of a Brooklyn location and is considering Sunset Park’s Industry City, after pulling out from its bid for a Queens headquarters amid intense political criticism earlier this year. The news comes as Industry City’s owners — a partnership of investors including Jamestown, Belvedere Capital and Angelo Gordon — are applying for a controversial rezoning that would reshape the 35-acre property from a largely manufacturing and storage center into an “Innovation Economy Hub” as part of a 10-year, $1 billion redevelopment.

CONEY ISLANDERS OUTRAGED BY KAISER PARK FERRY PLAN

A small but vocal group of Coney Island residents held a rally on Saturday, July 27 to protest a proposal to put an NYC Ferry landing at the Kaiser Park pier in their neighborhood, charging that having ferries coming and going all day long will ruin their quiet oasis and bring an abrupt end to fishermen’s enjoyment of the waterfront. The pier is located near Bayview Avenue and West 33rd Street, not far from the Gravesend Houses, a New York City Housing Authority development. For more on this story, go to brooklynreporter.com

MORE BIKE LANES, FEWER PARKING SPACES COMING TO BOROUGH

New York City will increase the pace of bike lane construction, particularly in southern Brooklyn neighborhoods, eliminate “thousands” of parking spaces and increase police enforcement following a spate of cyclist deaths throughout the city, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg announced on Thursday, July 25. Alongside Trottenberg, the mayor unveiled his “Green Wave” plan as a component of his Vision Zero initiative, which seeks to bring cyclist, pedestrian and driver deaths down to zero by the year 2024. The plan sets a goal of increasing the rate of construction of protected bike lanes to 30 miles per year, up from 20 miles per year at the current rate.

Around 100 Sunset Park residents came out on Tuesday, July 30 to voice their opinion of two homeless shelters to be built at 535 and 555 Fourth Ave. in the coming months, at what turned into a heated forum hosted by Community Board 7. The shelters will primarily provide housing to families experiencing homelessness, with the first floor of each building reserved for retail space. The largest provider of family shelter and supportive housing in the city, Women In Need, will run the shelters. For more on this story, go to brooklynreporter.com.

Lafayette Playground reopens ahead of schedule BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A Gravesend park that got a $4.5 million makeover from the city has reopened — four months ahead of schedule — thanks to quick work from the Parks Department and construction contractors. Lafayette Playground, a 1.19acre recreational spot tucked into a corner of Gravesend where Stillwell and Benson avenues meet, reopened on July 25 following its transformation from an asphalt wasteland into a vibrant park with lots of greenery, Councilmember Mark Treyger said. Treyger, a Democrat representing Gravesend, Coney Island and parts of Bensonhurst, said he was happy to see the park welcome families once again. “I’m elated to see this project finished so that the children, seniors and families in our community can enjoy the new and enhanced Lafayette Playground and green spaces,” Treyger said. The new version of Lafayette Playground boasts new playground equipment for kids, an adult fitness area, basketball courts, a walking trail, a picnic area, game tables, water fountains, benches, plantings and a section of synthetic turf where people can practice tai chi and yoga. Treyger plans to host a ribbon cutting ceremony at the park within the next few weeks.

The renovation project closely followed the proposals included in this artist’s rendering of the park.

The date has not yet been set. Brooklyn Parks Commissioner Marty Maher hosted a groundbreaking ceremony marking the start of the renovation project in October of 2018. Gravesend residents were invited to submit ideas on

what they wanted to see in the park at a meeting the Parks Department had last year and many of their ideas were incorporated into the design, officials said. “This is not our design. This is your design,” Maher told residents at the

groundbreaking ceremony in October. The Lafayette Playground project was part of the Community Parks Initiative, a program in which the de Blasio administration revitalizes long-neglected parks in densely populated

neighborhoods. Mayor Bill de Blasio started the Community Parks Initiative in 2014. Treyger, who said he had to fight to ensure that Lafayette Playground was included on the Community Parks Initiative list, added that the park

has been on his radar for a long time. “When I lived in Bath Beach on Cropsey Avenue I would frequently walk by and wish the space was better utilized than just being a pile of concrete,” he told the Home Reporter in a text message. Even though the recreational space was lacking, local residents still found uses for it, according to local officials, who said groups of people would gather there in the early mornings for tai chi. “I appreciate the tai chi classes in the morning but knew we could do even more for families,” Treyger said. At the groundbreaking last year, Treyger said he envisioned the park as a space for community-sponsored events like concerts. There are bound to be plenty of students using the newly renovated park. Lafayette Playground sits across the street from the Lafayette Education Complex, a building that houses five small high schools: Kingsborough Early College School, the International High School at Lafayette, the Expeditionary Learning School for Community Leaders, the High School of Sports Management, and Life Academy High School for Film and Music. Two other schools, John Dewey High School and P.S. 212, are located a few blocks away from the park.

Lady Moody’s graveyard: Preserving the city’s oldest burial ground BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK

MMCGOLDRICK @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A historic Gravesend graveyard is getting the Green-Wood treatment. The Old Gravesend Cemetery, located near the corner of Gravesend Neck Road and McDonald Avenue since the mid-17th century, is getting a makeover. The southern Brooklyn burial ground is just one of many public spaces being spruced up this summer as part of the New York City Parks Department’s Citywide Monuments Conservation Program. Established by Lady Deborah Moody in 1643, the landmarked

cemetery is home to more than 350 gravestones, ranging in dates from the mid-18th century to the mid-1900s. Those buried there include early settlers of Brooklyn, Revolutionary War veterans and maybe even Lady Moody herself. Lady Moody is known for setting one of the earliest examples of urban planning — and for founding Gravesend, the first New World settlement established by a woman. She is believed by many to be buried in the cemetery she brought to life. “This is the last surviving element [of that settlement],” Jonathan Kuhn, director for art and antiquities at the Parks Department, told this paper. “She may very well be buried

Cemetery. It was transferred to the Parks Department 16 years ago. The last known burial in the graveyard dates back to the 1940s, and it is the oldest surviving burial ground in New York City. While it is often closed for restoration purposes, there have been tours of the cemetery in the past. Among them, Halloweenthemed excursions and, most recently, one centered around Women’s History Month. “There is an ongoing investment to making this an accessible place,” Kuhn said. “We’ve had an internship program for maybe 15 years,” she told this paper, “but for the last couple of years it’s been a little more structured through the Department of Education.” Wickremesinghe said her program is a CTE — or career in technical education — host site, “which means that we’re able to give a summer internship experience that’s maybe a little different than an office job.” Since becoming a CTE three years ago, she said her group has done a lot of work within Green-Wood’s public lots. “The city of New York became the stewards of a ton of closed cemeteries, and they reached out to us for help,” she said. “We came out months ago to start planning,” Wickremesinghe said — and just days into the first phase of work, she stressed that progress could already be seen. “It was a mess,” she said. And she’s already seen a difference. “It’s a phase kind of thing, but as my high school band teacher said about instruments, you can’t fall farther than the floor.”

The landmarked Gravesend Cemetery is in the process of being restored by the Parks Department and volunteers from Green-Wood Cemetery.

here, but there’s no marker.” But there 379 stones, he said — ranging from sandstone and limestone to marble and granite. Volunteers could be seen on Wednesday afternoon resetting markers that had fallen over, power-washing stones and tidying the landscape. For this particular project, the Parks program — founded in 1997 — paired up with GreenWood Cemetery’s summer interns to tackle the rehabilitation. “We’ve got restoration stuff at Green-Wood that could last us another 181 years,” Green-Wood Cemetery President Richard Moylan said, “but we really like helping wherever we can.” “We love working with Parks — it’s just a good neighborhood thing,” Moylan told this paper. He credited Neela Kusum Wickremesinghe, manager of restoration and preservation at the cemetery, with changing the way other people look at GreenWood’s preservation team. “Neela has just been an amazing addition to our staff. We had a preservation team before that was sort of selftrained, but Neela’s just brought us to a whole other level,” Moylan said. “Two or three years ago, Parks wouldn’t have looked to us for expertise.” Founded in 1838, GreenWood Cemetery covers 480 acres and two centuries of city history. Each summer, Wickremesinghe gets a team of high-school interns looking to get their hands dirty. Moylan, Wickremesinghe and Kuhn also all gave credit to Parks Conservator John Saunders, who was hard at work getting a gravestone back upright. Gravesend Cemetery was landmarked in 1976, alongside the parallel Van Sicklen Family

Hero NYPD first responder Christopher Cranston is laid to rest on Staten Island BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

It was a solemn and touching funeral service for heroic first responder Christopher Cranston who died of a 9/11related illness on July 20, at the age of 48. The funeral mass took place July 25, at 11 a.m. at St. Christopher’s Roman Catholic Church, 130 Midland Ave. on Staten Island. The retired NYPD detective lived in New Dorp, Staten

Island, but was born, raised and spent his career serving in Brooklyn’s 60th and 62nd Precincts until he retired in 2013. Cranston worked for six months helping in the Ground Zero recovery efforts following the Sept. 11 attacks in Manhattan. He worked on the pile at the twin towers for months before helping sift through the ashes at the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island. Dozens of police vehicles lined the streets surrounding the church. Cranston’s fellow officers honored their fallen

brother with a heartfelt rendition of “Amazing Grace.” “Eighteen years ago I lost a good friend that perished in the World Trade Center,” Christopher Cranston’s brother Donald Cranston told this paper. “But I never dreamed that 18 years later I would lose my baby brother to a 9/11-related illness. He was involved with the Little League and he was always involved with his church. He had a big heart and he was always available anytime, anywhere to help anyone in need.” Cranston is survived by his wife Clare and their five children, Kristy, Emma, Andrew, Nick and Christopher Jr.

Brannan doesn’t want cellphone companies selling your data BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Cellphone customers might not realize it, but telecommunication companies could be sharing their exact location with third parties while they’re talking on the phone. It’s a lucrative business, according to the New York Times, which reported on Tuesday that telecommunications companies and mobile apps make billions of dollars a year from the oftensecretive practice of selling a customer’s geo-location to the highest bidder. According to the Times report, the companies sell the data to digital marketers, retail advertisers, roadside assistance services and even bounty hunters. But sharing data that pinpoints a cellphone user’s location could soon become illegal in New York City. Councilmember Justin Brannan has introduced a bill that would outlaw the practice and impose hefty fines on companies that violate the law. Brannan’s bill would prohibit telecommunications compa-

nies and mobile apps from selling or sharing a consumer’s geolocation within New York City. Violators would face fines of up to $10,000 a day and that fine would be imposed even if the company shares data from just a single cellphone customer. “We’re seeing major telecommunications companies cashing in on the average working person’s private location data. A person can sign up for cell service and their data can end up in the hands of five different companies and shady geo-locating entities,” Brannan said in a statement. The bill does carve out exceptions. Data requested by law enforcement agencies and information required by federal, state or city law would be exempt. And companies would be permitted to share users’ data if the customer agrees to it. If passed by the City Council and signed by Mayor Bill de Blasio, Brannan’s bill would become the first law of its kind in the country. There is currently no federal law to prevent the practice of geolocation sharing.

An iconic Bensonhurst sandwich shop has gotten a second coming. Residents of Sunset Park are set to become part of the Lioni Italian Heroes family as the Italian-American shop officially expects to open there on Thursday or Friday, this paper has learned. The sandwich shop, a Brooklyn staple, has a long history of delivering some of the area’s best Italian-American subs — with some of the best Italian-American names. Why not order the Marty Golden (not Italian, but local!), a chicken cutlet, mozzarella, roasted peppers and balsamic vinegar sandwich named for the eight-term state senator unseated in November? Or the Martin Scorsese, a hero with Italian sausage and melted white American cheese? For music lovers, try the Frank Sinatra, topped with the croon-

er’s favorite: salami and fresh mozzarella. “We’re just so excited! The community outreach and interaction we’ve had already in the

neighborhood has been phenomenal. One woman just called a couple of days ago to see if it was really us moving down the street from her,” Paul DiSpirito,

Amazon eyeing Sunset Park’s Industry City BY JEFFERY HARRELL & NED BERKE EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Amazon is reportedly in search of a Brooklyn location and is considering Sunset Park’s Industry City, after pulling out from its bid for a Queens headquarters amid intense political criticism earlier this year. The online retailer is evaluating potential Brooklyn locations for a logistics facility (not the same thing as the “HQ2” that had been planned for Long Island City), from which it could rapidly deliver orders to customers, Crain’s reported.

Industry City’s 5.27 millionsquare-foot campus has waterfront access and sits in the shadow of the BrooklynQueens Expressway. A spokesperson for Amazon told this paper that there is no deal with Industry City, but that Amazon is constantly evaluating new real estate opportunities. The news comes as Industry City’s owners — a partnership of investors including Jameston, Belvedere Capital and Angelo Gordon — are applying for a controversial rezoning that would reshape the 35-acre property from a largely manufacturing and storage center into an “Innovation Economy Hub” as part of a 10-year, $1

billion redevelopment. The redevelopment plan would reduce the property’s current 1.7 million square feet of storage space, and eliminate 679,960 square feet of vacant space — much of which is in need of serious repairs. Industry City officials would not speculate on the impact of a large tenant like Amazon, but said their current plans are to pursue their rezoning. “Our plans for ULURP have not changed,” Industry City spokesperson Lisa Serbaniewicz said, referring to the rezoning process. She noted, however, that signing Amazon on as a tenant would

not require outside approval from the City Council or input from local stakeholders. “This kind of deal can be done as-of-right.” Brownstoner’s Cate Corcoran notes that Amazon already has space next door, at Salmar Properties’ Liberty View Industrial Plaza. The eretailer signed a five-year lease for 1 million square feet in 2015, and Corcoran suggests the leak could be a negotiation tactic. “Their lease is up in two years, so letting it be known they’re looking around could help them negotiate better lease terms, or they could be looking for more space,” Corcoran writes.

EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A man in his 20s was found floating next to the VerrazzanoNarrows Bridge off Fourth Avenue in Bay Ridge on Saturday afternoon, according to police from the 68th Precinct. Police said they were investigating whether the man, uniden-

tified as of Sunday afternoon, was the owner of a car that had been left on the bridge earlier on Saturday. The body was found by fishermen at 5:49 p.m. floating on the Brooklyn side of the bridge next to the promenade bike path, police say. Police from the Harbor Unit and Emergency Service Unit brought the body up to the

Fort Hamilton concrete dock and then onto the bike path, which was then closed off to weekend riders. Councilmember Justin Brannan, who represents Bay Ridge, argued earlier this summer that the Bridges and Tunnels unit of the MTA should install suicide-prevention barriers along the Verrazzano.

68th Precinct gears up for annual Night Out Against Crime

ABOVE AND AT LEFT: Scenes from last year’s Night Out Against Crime in Shore Road Park. BY EDITORIAL STAFF The 68th Precinct will continue the long-standing tradition that takes place all over the country, with its annual National Night Out, an event designed to bring police together with the community. The precinct will throw an all-out party in Shore Road Park at 79th Street beginning at 6 p.m. and running to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Organized by the 68th Precinct Community Council, this year’s iteration will again include a con-

cert by popular local group Alive ‘N’ Kickin’. “We have quite a number of community groups that participate,” said Council President David Ryan last year, noting that, while some are anticrime specific, many are geared towards community life in general. Each year, the event is highly attended thanks to its activities and commitment to putting a stop to local crime. “We’ve had up to 5,000 people attend this event,” Ryan said. “It not only shows com-

munity support for the local police department, but it also shows that our local police officers want to interact with citizens and community as a whole and to enjoy a fun-filled night together. We offer free hot dogs too.” Anti-crime initiatives on hand will include etching for cars and a high-tech practice through which attendees can get their smartphones registered in case they get lost. “We also have anti-crime tips at the table,” Ryan said. “People look forward to see-

ing all those community groups. And there’s a chance for them to interact with the police and express concerns they might have about the community as well as some support for our local police, which is always appreciated.” The event will also offer attendees the opportunity to meet and learn about local elected officials. “It will be a great opportunity to interact with elected officials,” Ryan said. “They all have tables at the event and it’s a chance for them and their staff to meet

and greet constituents, and explain what their mission is. “And, as they do every year, attendees will also get to meet some candidates currently eyeing local seats, while youngsters get to sit in police vehicles brought to the park for just that purpose, or frolic to their heart’s content in bouncy houses. Adults can also participate in raffles for a range of prizes that help pay for the night of fun,” said Ryan. Sponsors for the event this year include The Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator, Century

News Around the Boro NO GAS, NO BURGERS

BOROUGHWIDE — Two Brooklyn deli owners say National Grid may cost them $400,000 by refusing to supply natural gas to a new burger restaurant they’re planning in Brooklyn, according to Bloomberg News. The two men are victims of a face-off between the gas utility and state regulators since New York and New Jersey have denied approvals for the planned $1 billion Williams Cos. Pipeline expansion. Williams Cos. plans to reapply, but in the meantime, National Grid is declining to approve any new contracts to supply gas.  BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — The buyers of the $9.8 million Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 16 Sidney Place are horror movie producer Jason Blum, known for “Paranormal Activity” and “The Purge,” and his wife, television writer Lauren Schuker Blum, according to the New York Post. The house previously belonged to the late hedge-fund manager Sanjay Valvani, who killed himself after being charged with insider trading. The 22-foot-wide, five-story property features six bedrooms, four full bathrooms, an elevator, radiant-heated floors, an open-air cabana and a dining patio. The master suite includes built-in cabinets, a spa-like bathroom, office space and a terrace. 

CHURCH RECEIVES GRANT FOR MURAL

STUYVESANT HEIGHTS — The New York Landmarks Conservancy has given the 146-year-old Stuyvesant Heights Christian Church a $30,000 grant to repair a large stained-glass mural, according to the Brooklyn Paper. “We feel it is very important to help maintain religious structures that provide a sense of history and place to communities,” said Peg Breen, leader of the conservancy. The church, at 69 MacDonough St., is an example of 19th century Gothic Revival architecture. In addition to worship services, it sponsors a preschool, after-school program and food pantries. 

AMAZON, PRO AND CON

SUNSET PARK — Sunset Park residents are divided about the possible impact of the storage and shipping facility that Amazon reportedly wants to build in Industry City, according to the Brooklyn Paper. Adrian Roman, a member of a community group called El Grito, said, “Those are low-paying jobs. They don’t really help the community.” Councilmember Carlos Menchaca said that in its existing facilities, Amazon “terrorizes immigrants and treats its workers like robots.” But real estate lawyer Jeffrey Cintron said, “It’s going to be a huge plus. A distribution facility has to have blue-collar jobs.” 

GOWANUS COALITION SEEKS ZONING INPUT

GOWANUS — The Gowanus Neighborhood Coalition for Justice, made up of groups that advocate for the area’s low-income tenants, has called for the city to create an Environmental Special District within the area in Gowanus that it wants to rezone. One of the area’s challenges is to mitigate the untreated waste spewing into the Gowanus Canal when the city’s sewers are overwhelmed by runoff from heavy rains. The city estimates that the rezoning would create 8,200 new apartments in the neighborhood, and environmentalists fear the impact that added waste could bring. The coalition also wants the city to invest in local parks, increase the number of street trees and address critical needs at the area’s three NYCHA projects. 

BODY DISCOVERED NEAR HOME DEPOT

CONEY ISLAND — A man’s body was discovered in a wooded area behind a Coney Island Home Depot on Sunday, according to the New York Post. A passerby came across the victim, who police said was probably in his 30s, around noon on Sunday in the woods behind the store. The victim was lying face down and bleeding from his head, police said. 

BIKE LANE PROPOSAL SLAMMED

SHEEPSHEAD BAY — Southern Brooklyn community boards criticized Mayor Bill de Blasio for saying he would “just give the order” to install new bike lanes if the boards obstruct city efforts to build them. Theresa Scavo, chair of Community Board 15, which includes Sheepshead Bay and Brighton Beach, says the city has often ignored the board and “unilaterally decided to remove parking in southern Brooklyn.” Bob Tracy, a member of Marine Park’s CB 18, said that rather than protect bikers from cars, the mayor’s plan would put pedestrians in danger from cyclists. The mayor’s plan would add 80 miles of protected bike lanes to city streets. 

BRA STOPS SHOOTER’S BULLET

BROWNSVILLE — A woman’s bra strap stopped a bullet from penetrating her back during a Brownsville shooting on Saturday night, according to Newsweek. Daniesa Mardaugh was one of thousands of people who attended the Old Timers Day event where the mass shooting broke out around 11 p.m., leaving one person dead and at least 11 injured. When EMS

HORROR PRODUCER BUYS HEIGHTS MANSION

A small but vocal group of Coney Island residents held a rally on Saturday to protest a proposal to put a ferry landing at the Kaiser Park pier in their neighborhood, charging that having ferries coming and going all day long will ruin their quiet oasis and bring an abrupt end to fishermen’s enjoyment of the waterfront. See brooklyneagle.com for the full story. personnel unhooked Mardaugh’s bra, the bullet was just sitting in the strap and fell out, police said. Police Commissioner James O’Neill said the NYPD is looking into whether the shooting was gang-related. 

TAXI DRIVERS OFFER REWARD

BROWNSVILLE — Taxi drivers’ advocates are upset over the robbery and murder of cabbie Nomen Saleemi on Williams Avenue in Brownsville on Friday. “This was a young man, a brother, a son, a nephew, a cousin, a good human being whose life was taken senselessly,” said Fernando Mateo, spokesperson for the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers. The group is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone with information about Saleemi’s death. They are also calling on the city to make cabbies’ jobs safer. Saleemi’s family said he had been driving with the Everywhere Car Service for about two years and was about to start a new job at a pharmaceutical company. 

PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF

FORT GREENE — A female anesthesiologist who was heartbroken after a fellow physician ended their romance threatened to kill him and his mother with a muscle relaxant, according to the New York Post. Pik Lee allegedly refused to end the relationship, even groping Francisco Sebastiani while he performed surgery at the Brooklyn Hospital Center, according to a lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court. Even as Sebastiani went through residencies in various hospitals, Lee “spewed a barrage of lewd, profane, explicit and threatening text messages and emails … that included gun, bomb, knife and syringe emojis,” the lawsuit alleged. 

IRON MAIDEN STORMS BARCLAYS

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Forbes’ Derek Scancarelli recently reviewed Iron Maiden’s two nights of concerts at Barclays Center in Downtown Brooklyn. The British heavy metal group “pummeled through decades of hits among an evolving assortment of stage props, thematic backdrops and pyrotechnics,” the review said. Iron Maiden front man Bruce Dickinson changed his attire for each song’s theme — from fighter pilot goggles to the parka of an Arctic soldier. Guitarist Dave Murray said the group performs “an adrenaline driven show. There are quiet, moody parts in some songs, but it’s basically full-on.” 

POST OFFICE ROBBERS SOUGHT

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A group of men is wanted for repeatedly stabbing and then robbing a young man behind a post office in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to PIX11. The group confronted the victim on July 20 at the rear of 1205 Atlantic Ave. The victim was stabbed three times in the upper torso and arm, police said. The robbers took $20, then fled in an unknown direction. 

BABY PRONOUNCED DEAD

EAST FLATBUSH — A 25-day-old baby was pronounced dead in East Flatbush on Saturday after authorities responded to a call about an unconscious child, according to silive.com.

Police responded to a 911 call of an unconscious child inside an apartment at 1242 East 72nd St. EMS workers transported the male child, who was later identified as Nio Kiellman, to Brookdale Hospital Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. 

PARK SLOPE CO-OP FEATURED

PARK SLOPE — The New York Times, in its “What’s Selling Now” real estate column, recently wrote about “Homes That Sold for Around $1.5 Million.” The only Brooklyn home mentioned in the column was 397 Seventh Ave. in Park Slope, a co-op in a prewar building that includes a “breakfast bar,” a washer-dryer and a living room with fireplace. The co-op sold for $1.325 million, with monthly maintenance charges of $748. 

CAR BREAK-IN IN THE HEIGHTS

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS — A thief broke into a car in Brooklyn Heights and stole a backpack with $40,000 in cash inside, according to the New York Post. The suspect, a young white man who wore a blue-hooded sweater and brown shorts, was caught on video on July 11 on Joralemon Street near Hicks Street. He used a wrench to break into the Jeep’s passenger window, quickly stole the backpack and fled on foot. The owner, a 52-year-old man, had left the backpack unattended in the car, police said. 

DOMINICAN CHOCOLATE SHOP OPENS

WILLIAMSBURG — Rizek Cacao, a well-known manufacturer of chocolate bars in the Dominican Republic, has opened its first shop in the United States. The store, Kahkow, is located at 97 N. 10th St. near Berry Street in Williamsburg. Kahkow sells chocolate bars, chocolate for cooks, baked goods and other ingredients, according to The New York Times. Soon, the café expects to start roasting cacao on the premises. 

DISTURBED MAN THREATENS COPS

EAST NEW YORK — The Sergeants Benevolent Association on Sunday tweeted a video of a man walking into the 75th Precinct in East New York with what they say was a drawn knife. When the man refused to drop his weapon, one of the officers tased him, causing him to fall to the ground and allowing the cops to subdue him, according to PIX11. NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan commented on Twitter, “Cops face split second, life & death decisions every day. When an emotionally disturbed man holding a long knife walked into the NYPD75Pct and asked to be shot, these cops reacted quickly.” 

GREECE VS. PERSIA IN BAY RIDGE

BAY RIDGE — The Federation of Associated Laconian Studies recently held a commemoration of the Battle of Thermopylae and a tribute to King Leonidas of Sparta, according to the National Herald, a Greek Orthodox publication. The room was packed at the federation’s headquartered in Bay Ridge on July 28. The Battle of Thermopylae, in 480 B.C., pitted an alliance of Greek city-states led by King Leonidas against the Persian Empire led by King Xerxes.

“Ask the Lawyer” host Mike Connors honored at American Heritage Dinner BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

Community leaders and elected officials came together for the Conservative Parties of Kings and Queens Counties’ American Heritage Dinner on Tuesday, July 23, at Russo’s on the Bay in Howard Beach. This year’s recipient of the Thaddeus S. Dabrowski American Heritage Award was attorney Mike Connors of Connors & Sullivan Attorneys at Law, host of the popular “Ask the Lawyer” radio show on AM970. Connors is a community leader who has been honored by numerous civic organizations in the borough, including the Bay Ridge Community Council, the Boy Scouts of America, the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, the Bay Ridge Center and the American Legion. The entire evening was a heartfelt tribute to Connors, who was born in Manhattan and moved to Bay Ridge when he was four years old. After graduating from Pace University, he served in the Army. Upon his return from service, he enrolled in Brooklyn Law School and graduated in 1979 as a member of the Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity. Connors opened his private practice in Bay Ridge in 1981 and formed Connors & Sullivan, an elder law firm that specializes in trusts and estates and estate planning. He resides in Bay Ridge with his wife Beth and son Michael and is an active member of the Brooklyn Conservative Party. Brooklyn Conservative Party Vice Chair David Ryan hosted the event. Among the elected officials in attendance were Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis, New York State Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kassar, Brooklyn Conservative Party Chair Fran

Vella-Marrone, Queens County Conservative Party Chair Thomas Long, Queens City Councilmembers Eric Ulrich and Robert Holden, Brooklyn Councilmember Kalman Yeger

Marty Golden and former New York State Conservative Party Chair Mike Long. Msgr. Alfred LoPinto, president and chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens, delivered the invocation. Dozier Hasty, publisher and owner of daily and weekly newspapers including the Brooklyn Eagle, Home Reporter and Spectator, was also in attendance. Comedian, singer, radio talk show host and former star of

“Saturday Night Live” Joe Piscopo was at the event to salute his friend Connors. Piscopo said that it was an honor to be at the dinner and credited Connors with helping him straighten out his life. Piscopo introduced Connors, saying, “It is with great pride and great respect that I introduce a great New Yorker who doesn’t forget about his religion, his family or his community. He’s the most dedicated man I know and one of the most brilliant men I know.” Republican New York businesswoman Scherie Murray and retired NYPD Police Officer John Cummings were also at the dinner; both are running for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s seat in New York’s 14th District. Ryan called the event one of the most successful dinners the party has ever had and credited Connors’ selection as honoree as the reason for the large turn-out. LoPinto praised Connors’ “level of conviction to great moral values and how he promotes those in the most exceptional of ways, most especially with the radio station he is involved with.” Vella-Marrone called Connors “simply a great man and one of the first people I met in the Conservative Party back in 1980.” She explained Connors became an elder care lawyer because of his concern for his aging parents at the time. “He

Mike embodies the principles of God, country and family,” she added. Connors appeared deeply touched by the outpouring of love for him in the room. “I want to thank everyone for being here tonight. It’s really appreciated,” he said before asking everyone from his law firm to stand up and be recognized. “Sometimes when I go out of state or go to visit relatives in Texas, people ask me ‘what’s the Conservative Party, and why are you a Conservative? Why aren’t you just a Republican, aren’t Republicans good enough? Well, the reason I’m a Conservative is because Conservatives stand for principles and values,” he explained.

Malliotakis thanked Connors, calling him a proud American who truly believes in his conservatism and in his nation and for “all he does for senior citizens, the Brooklyn community, the Catholic community and the veterans community.” Kassar also praised Connors for his many contributions to

the community. “Mike Connors is one of those special people that contributes so much in so many different ways to the people of Bay Ridge and our city,” Kassar told this paper. “I applaud the Brooklyn and Queens Conservative Parties in recognizing his contributions at a wonderfully successful dinner.”

Showing Brooklynites and tourists a new side of Industry City, Made in Brooklyn Tours added Industry City to its roster of destinations this summer. The new tour, dubbed the “Made in Industry City Tour,” kicked off on June 20 with a curated selection of Brooklyn makers based at the century-old manufacturing complex. Dom Gervasi, founder of the tour company and a one-time Sunset Park resident, said that Industry City had approached him about doing the tour. “They reached out to me and asked if I was interested in going out there and designing a tour around the makers of Industry City,” he said. “For so many years, it was empty. I’m sure there were things going on but it wasn’t something a lot of people knew about.” The goal for Gervasi — who launched his business in 2011 — was designing a tour that showcases both Industry City’s rich history and its variety of businesses. “Every neighborhood has a story and IC has its own interesting one and I have to develop that. I try to capture the story and nature of Industry City,” he said. The tour covers several popular areas including Innovation Alley, Li-Lac Chocolate and Japan Village, and also reveals the inner workings of the complex. “My challenge was to try to contrast the different types of businesses,” he said. “I wanted to contrast old school and new school, and traditional artisan versus what’s new

That was a story I was trying to tell with Industry City.” “The maker community here is an integral part of Industry City, as well as the great landscape of light manufacturing in cities around the country,” said Lauren Danziger, the complex’s chief marketing officer. “The ability to bring people inside maker spaces opens the doors of creativity and accessibility, dispelling the idea that it’s not possible to thrive as a creative business in New York City. These tours are providing a platform for this type of accessibility.” The Made in Industry City tour takes place every Thursday at 10 a.m. Tickets are $40.

John Philip Bigolski, a Williamsburg stalwart, Army veteran and city servant, dies at 71 BY JOHN NICHOLAS BIGOLSKI AND NED BERKE John Philip Bigolski, a father, husband and longtime fixture of the northside Williamsburg community seen frequently chatting up storeowners on Bedford Avenue and doling out wisdom from local barstools, died on July 28 at the age of 71. As a special investigator for the Office of Midtown Enforcement during Rudy Giuliani’s mayoral administration, Bigolski played a part in the resurgence of Times Square and Midtown Manhattan by bringing businesses up to code and ensuring safety for visitors. He stayed in the office until 2016, having served three mayors in the role. He took his job seriously and with an open mind, according to his son, John Nicholas Bigolski. “He would go into sex shops and gay clubs when no one else would want to. And he’d work with anyone so long as they focused on the job,” the younger Bigolski said. “He took assignments no one else would take; he’d take it and do it well.” Born on Dec. 22, 1947, Bigolski witnessed another of modern New York City’s most dramatic transformations closer to home, passing

most of his seven decades within the few square miles of Williamsburg’s northside. He moved to the neighborhood as a child from Jersey City, New Jersey, with his three sisters and his parents, John Biegalski and Mary Pryma Biegalski. He graduated from Eastern District High School in 1965, having previously attended P.S. 17 and J.H.S. 126. His father, a Greenpoint native, owned several bars and restaurants catering to the neighborhood’s longshoremen and dock and factory workers, who Bigolski would later see replaced by artists, entrepreneurs and throngs of tourists. “He’d say a lot of new people were not honoring the history of the neighborhood, and how it was growing up, and how it was a world renowned shipyard,” Bigolski’s son said. “[Yet] he always supported and was friendly with the artists who were moving in, because he always had an affinity for the arts. Artists and musicians alike.” From his stooped brownstone off Bedford Avenue at North Sixth Street, Bigolski watched much of that transformation alongside his wife, Mary Voloshin, to whom he was married for 38 years until her death in 2011. Voloshin and Bigolski were friends when he was drafted to the Army

John Philip Bigolski. in early 1968. He saw service as a military police officer at Checkpoint Charlie in East Berlin until 1970. He earned commendations as an expert in rifle and pistol, and received the National Service Medal and Army of Occupation (Berlin) Medal. Bigolski received an honorable discharge in early 1970. During his time overseas, Bigolski and Voloshin corresponded frequently. After he returned, they married on June 25, 1973. Their first and only

child, John Nicholas, was born on Nov. 12, 1984. Prior to his service in the Mayor’s Office, Bigolski worked several odd jobs throughout the ’70s, including fabric salesman, counselor in an inner-city charity and day school, gas station and gas truck inspector, and short-order cook. He completed his bachelor’s degree in sociology through City College in 1980 and took on a series of state and city jobs until he joined the Mayor’s Office of Midtown Enforcement in 1994, staying until his retirement. Bigolski was an avid fisherman, casting his line along the New York City and Long Island waterfronts. He had a thorough knowledge of the region’s beaches, inlets and bays. “On Long Island, as a kid, when we would go fishing and I’d see him haul in a really, really big fish it would impress upon me as a kid the strength and the power of staying in the fight. That’s a strong memory in my mind,” Bigolski’s son recalled. Bigolski was a lifelong Mets fan, having been a devout Brooklyn Dodgers fan and an enemy of the Yankees. He frequently recounted early childhood memories of hopping local buses with other kids down to Ebbets Field. As a Mets fan, he watched

nearly every game — except when the Mets disappointed too deeply. “He would usually turn on the game for at least a little bit, but sometimes he’d get so disgusted with the Mets he’d say, ‘I’m not watching them again.’ And then a day would go by and he’d watch again,” said his son. Bigolski’s oldest sister, Barbara Johnston, died on the same day as he did, July 28. He is survived by his son, John Nicholas, as well as his sisters, Virginia Bonofiglio and Eleanor Schub, and many nieces, nephews and extended family. He will be remembered as a neighbor, a public servant, a veteran, a gruff voice with an impish smile — and, ultimately, as a caring, generous father and a loving husband. Viewing hours for John Philip Bigolski will be held at Evergreen Funeral Home (133 Nassau Ave., Brooklyn) on Saturday, Aug. 3, 7-9 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 4, 2-5 p.m. Services will be held on Sunday, Aug. 4, 7-9 p.m. Interment will be at Calverton National Cemetery (210 Princeton Blvd., Calverton, NY) following a short service at the funeral home on Monday, Aug. 5 at 9 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to a charity of your choice.

Eye on REAL ESTATE Check out Greenpoint’s new waterfront green spaces By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

I’m the nerd who always exhorts you to walk, walk, walk to see the best of Brooklyn. Today I’m going to encourage you to loaf around instead. How else will you experience Greenpoint’s two new waterfront parks the way they deserve to be experienced? They’re best appreciated by visitors who plan to stay a while, and just sit here and watch the river flow, as Bob Dylan famously sang. So bring friends, bring a book, bring a blanket so you

can enjoy some leisure time on the green lawns. One of the two parks is revamped and refurbished rather than absolutely brand-new. I’ll tell you more about it in a minute. If you don’t live within walking distance from Greenpoint, your most entertaining way to get there is, as always, the NYC Ferry. The route from Brooklyn Bridge Park to Williamsburg to Greenpoint offers a big dose of Brooklyn waterfront scenery — and vistas of skyscrapers in Lower and Midtown Manhattan, from the World Trade Center to the Chrysler Building.

There are two newly opened green spaces on the Greenpoint waterfront. This one’s Newtown Barge Park. Also, if you take the ferry, you’ll disembark on a dock that’s right beside the first new green space I want to show you, which is outside a new residential tower called The Greenpoint at 21 India St.

WATERFRONT PUBLIC SPACE IN FRONT OF THE GREENPOINT

When you walk to the end of the dock, you find the entrance to the new green space is right there.

This appealing public waterfront space is located in front of a residential tower called INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan The Greenpoint. This waterfront space belongs to the city Department of Parks and Recreation. It has a 275-foot promenade on the edge of the East River, 33 trees, low-rise plantings, a lawn and 312 linear feet of benches. The 29,500-square-foot green space stands in front of a driveway that leads from India Street to The Greenpoint’s front entrance. Mack Real Estate and Palin Enterprises are the codevelopers of the 40-story tower in conjunction with Urban Development Partners. Ismael Leyva Architects designed the building, which has rental apartments on the lower floors and condos on the upper floors. When I looked at The Greenpoint’s website the other day, available rental apartments ranged in price from $3,060 per month for a studio to $5,380 per month for a two-bedroom unit. Some condo sales have closed at The Greenpoint. For instance, city Finance Department records indicate, a unit on the 29th floor sold for $2,235,058 and a 36thfloor apartment sold for $2,158,690.

REZONING IN 2005 MANDATED GREEN SPACE CONSTRUCTION

The waterfront green space also has a 4,000-square-foot playground whose construction

wasn’t quite finished the day I was there. Some of the playground equipment looks a little bit like abstract sculptures.

It’s part of a 22-acre, multi-building shoreline development called Greenpoint Landing that Brookfield Properties and Park Tower Group are building. By the way, these developers were also obligated by the 2005 rezoning to construct publicly accessible waterfront space. Last year, they opened a section of that green space. It runs between

Grasses grow in neat rows in the green space outside The Greenpoint. — Continued from page 10INB — The Greenpoint’s developers were required to build the waterfront green space, give it to the city and promise to fund its maintenance. A 2005 rezoning imposed this requirement on developers of the neighborhood’s waterfront sites. By the way, the park outside The Greenpoint is open from dawn until dusk. It’s a tranquil spot to watch the sunset. If you point your camera in the right direction, you’ll be able to include the Empire State Building in your pictures.

I

Trump wins

have two takeaways from last week’s five to four United States Supreme Court decision allowing the president to use Defense Department funds to build part of a border wall. One, it was the right decision. Since the founding of the nation, border security has been within the control of the president. The wall constitutes an element of that security. The two lower courts that placed a freeze on the use of these funds pushed up against this constitutional and historically supported role. Now, the president can do his job. My second takeaway is that as the months roll by and the president’s nominees to the federal district courts and appeals courts are confirmed, the many conservative policy initiatives the president has proposed will be implemented

essentially unimpeded by the courts. Give the president a second term and for 20 years to follow, his impact on everything from immigration to trade and economic policy might meet a congressional challenge, but not much of a judicial one. *** Since Bill de Blasio took over as mayor five and a half years ago, we have seen him, aided by the City Council that has shifted to the far left, allow disrespect for law enforcement go unchecked as they pushed policy changes as well as changes in the NYPD patrol guide that hinder law enforcement’s ability to do its job. This year, with a state legislature amplifying the city through the enactment of legislation more focused on criminal rights than the victims of crime, with an echo that the police do more

OPINION

harm than good, the bottom fell out of police officers’ commanding the respect they need to do their jobs. It might not be a simple thing to turn this around. The political leadership that has disrespected a proud service and wishes to make it just a job has had its effect. Police who are assaulted (and dropping a bucket of water on your head is an assault) need to believe that they can make arrests and the local electeds as well as the higher ups will stand up for them. Arrests need to be made and district attorneys such as Brooklyn’s Eric Gonzalez and the Bronx’s Darcel Clark — who ran for election questioning the actions of police as though they were the criminals — need to back the police on any arrests they make in these increasingly numerous assaults.

COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR

Give the president a second term and for 20 years to follow, his impact on everything from immigration to trade and economic policy might meet a congressional challenge, but not much of a judicial one. *** The Brooklyn and Queens Conservative Parties held an absolutely incredible joint event honoring attorney, radio personality and altruistic Bay Ridge resident Michael Connors at Russo’s on the Bay last week. The event, which raises funds for each county party’s political action

A TWO-WAY STREET

I

realize, as Brooklynites, we often complain. I also understand that, as a community, we won’t always agree. And that’s okay. But looking to be disagreeable at every turn by taking the most extreme position and criticizing good news stories by assuming the worst? That’s really something to complain about. Recently, Councilmember Justin Brannan secured significant funding for Reaching-Out Community Services food pantry in Bensonhurst, after it had been forced to make major cuts to its program. On the Facebook post from this paper sharing the article covering the good news, the comments were rife with ugly posts. People railed against helping to feed immigrants and politicians who “advocate for illegals.” When about 12 percent of American

households are food insecure and deal with hunger, it is almost inconceivable that the news of a 30-year community organization, currently feeding thousands of Brooklyn families from 16 zip codes, would be met with such negativity. Some people seem to be so intent on treating undocumented people, including children, cruelly, that they would end programs helping many struggling Americans if, in their eyes, there is a chance an immigrant might receive assistance. On July 11, the expansion of the school zone speed camera program that State Sen. Andrew Gounardes sponsored went into effect. In addition to the cameras now operating year round on weekdays from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., many have begun noticing new cameras popping up, as the city works toward having 2000

operational by 2021. Local social media groups have recently seen posts about new “speed trap” locations as part of what many describe as a “money grab” by the city. But speed cameras simply do what an officer would and, in fact, only ticket drivers traveling 11 mph or more above the posted limit. They aren’t nabbing someone who slightly exceeds the limit momentarily. They are citing those who are speeding egregiously.

Nobody’s need to get where they’re going a bit more quickly should trump everyone else’s well-being. I made the comparison that traveling 36 mph in a 25 mph zone is the equivalent of doing 92 on a highway with a 65 mph limit. Though

committee, was the largest in many years with several hundred in attendance. Fran Vella-Marrone chairs the Brooklyn organization and Tom Long the Queens party. Radio personalities Joe Piscopo and Kevin McCullough were there to support their friend and radio colleague. Both spoke and played significant roles. There were plenty of elected officials in attendance including Assemblymembers Nicole Malliotakis and Simcha Eichenstein as well as Councilmembers Kalman Yeger, Eric Ulrich and Bob Holden. Former State Sens. Marty Golden and Serph Maltese, who is also a past chairperson of the New York State Conservative Party, were there. Mike and Eileen Long were there, looking

rested and relaxed. Msgr. Alfred LoPinto, the CEO of Catholic Charities, was there to pay tribute to his board member Mike Connors and to perform an invocation. Mike Connors was accompanied by his wife Beth and son Michael. His remarks covered the bevy of activities that keep him busy. And, frankly, he is busy. He is a successful attorney providing important services to seniors and all in multiple boroughs, an activist for Catholic War veterans, involved in many aspects of the Catholic Church, including Catholic Charities, a supporter of the Conservative Party and conservative causes, a historian who has led the respected Civil War Roundtable and, of course, a father and husband. Congratulations, Mike.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

nobody would contend a driver getting pulled over for traveling that fast on a highway had been trapped, many decided that my likefor-like correlation was ridiculous because they feel going 44 percent or more above the speed limit on city streets shouldn’t warrant any repercussions. It's easy to avoid getting one of these tickets. Just don't violate the law egregiously. This isn't like not moving your car in time for alternate side. Speeding is a public safety issue. Nobody’s need to get where they’re going a bit more quickly should trump everyone else’s well-being. And when it comes to how unsafe our roadways can be,

the rash of cyclists killed this year has made that reality painfully apparent. Just a few days ago, on Tuesday, July 29, a 30-yearold woman riding a bicycle on Third Ave in Sunset Park was killed when the door of a parked car was opened into her path, forcing her in front of a tractor trailer. She is the 18th cyclist killed in New York City this year, with 13 of those fatalities occurring in Brooklyn. In all of 2018, there were 10 such deaths across the city. Two days before this latest tragedy, the New York Post editorial board ran an opinion piece titled, “‘Bike supremacy’ is ruining the city.” As the new Seventh Avenue bike lane implementation began to take shape in Bay Ridge, some people

griped about it and bike lanes in general. Not everyone rides a bicycle, so it is not surprising some longtime drivers would see bike lanes as an inconvenience, but as a society, we have continually made improvements in public safety by accepting some small level of inconvenience. The law in New York is that it is illegal for anyone over the age of 12 to ride a bicycle on a sidewalk. Wouldn’t we all agree that we should be taking every reasonable step to make it as safe as possible for riders as young as 13 to bike our streets? Why wouldn’t we convert one of three driving lanes on a stretch of road that never sees any significant traffic to a protected bike lane?

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

De Blasio’s ‘Green Wave’ will only lead to more bicyclist deaths, injuries

Current bike lanes are paths to more disasters Bike lanes, which — let’s face it — are not protected, no matter what the mayor says, are not the answer to a mounting crisis that saw yet another biker killed in Sunset Park a few days ago. A news report, apparently assuming that a bike lane there could have saved the victim, stated that “there were no bike lanes there,” buying into the false premise that bike lanes are safe lanes for bikers. This assumption is dangerously fooling the public and bikers alike into believing that we just have to add more and more bike lanes. Face the facts: As one who has biked our streets for the better part of 40 years, I can state that our streets are not safe for bikes. The only way to achieve a modicum of safety is to install true bike lanes, protected by metal

fencing, on designated routes. If necessary, move parking aside, but keep in mind that bikers will have to learn that they are not safe on the usual routes. They will have to adjust to not having access to each and every street and byway. There are some streets on which bikers — except, perhaps, daring delivery people — must and can venture, but strictly for business purposes only.

Politicians Have No Real Answer, So They Cling to Bike Lane Myth

Bikers — as well as most officeholders and the overzealous lobbying group Transportation Alternatives — claiming that a massive addition of so-called bike lanes are a real answer have seized on a false alternative. Bike lanes as

A painted bike lane. currently constituted will never be effective because drivers — even those who try to respect them — will often have to weave across them and, sad as it may seem, the

Columnist Charles Otey has been at the forefront of the Verrazzano Lifeway Campaign to install a walk-ride-stroll-wheelchair path across the majestic span that would benefit thousands daily and cut down at least some of the massive traffic jams that bedevil those who use the Verrazzano on a regular basis. Transportation Alternatives, once a main supporter of the Lifeway, apparently has pinned its success as a lobbying organization on the zeal of a growing number of bikers who are seeking to criss-cross just about every street and avenue with painted, unprotected bike lanes.

Sunset Park bicyclist would not have been spared from death in this instance because an unthinking driver opened a door, sending her careening to her demise. Not only will the campaign for more bike lanes not be productive, those who are urging this red herring are also smearing non-bike riders who don’t want more bike lanes. A case in point is the recent decision by Community Board 10 in Bay Ridge to oppose some of the number of new bike lanes planned by the city under the false banner that “bike lanes protect bikers.” Unfortunately, three local officeholders who were clearly nervous about what they were seeing on the web disagreed, claiming that the will of the people demanded more bike lanes than the board had recommended installing. Poppycock! The pols mistakenly give more credit to online predators than to those who actually vote in regular elections. Most non-bikers (which means a vast majority of voters) resent being inconvenienced and sometimes endangered by more and more bike lanes, and many have stories of dodging speeding bikers on the sidewalks or going the wrong way on major streets and avenues. This almost certainly is why most Board 10 members rejected the added infusion of bike lanes in the Greater Bay Ridge area. Their vote reflected the true will of the area. The officeholders might have satisfied their much-feared online agitators by opposing the recommendation of the board, but they should keep in mind that most of the agit-prop folks either don’t live in their district or won’t vote in the next election. Meanwhile, each biker who is killed or injured should be a reminder that to make the streets safe for bikers we need actual protected, fenced-in bike lanes. Equally as important, keep in mind that we will never have enough law enforcement to ticket each driver who violates a bike lane regulation. The reality is that bikers should drive on designated (yes, restricted) bike routes where the city has erected metal barriers to ensure their safety. A coat of paint is sad consolation to any biker killed or maimed by an errant motorist. And keep in mind that due to the impossibility of enforcing bike lane laws as currently constituted, the slaughter will continue — even if a bike lane is placed on each and every street in the city. The Sunset Park cyclist was the 13th killed in Brooklyn so far this year.

Pols demand end to transit troubles in Southwest Brooklyn BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he city’s transit system is in such dire shape, it will take all levels of government — federal, state and city — to get it back on track, according to a group of Southwest Brooklyn Democratic lawmakers who came to Bensonhurst Monday morning to demand action. Led by U.S. Rep. Max Rose, the elected officials representing Southwest Brooklyn held a press conference near the entrance of the 20th Avenue D train station on 86th Street and said they will push for major investments in transportation to fix deteriorating subway and bus service. “Our subways are melting down,” said Rose. “While Washington is playing games, the American people are losing.” The blame for inaction could be laid at the feet of the Democratic House leadership, the Republican leadership of the Senate and at the feet of President Trump, according to Rose. The nation needs a “comprehensive and holistic” plan to fix the country’s infrastructure and that plan should include major upgrades of the New York City transit system, as well

Brannan, whose constituents have similar commuting nightmares, said there are people who commute to New York City from out of state who have faster commutes than residents of the five boroughs. “There are people in Connecticut, New Jersey and Westchester County who have a more reliable commute than the people that live in Coney Island, Bath Beach, Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights. This is not hyperbole; this is fact. The federal government has to step in, and having Congressman Rose on our side gives us hope we can get this ebrooklyn media/Photo by Paula Katinas done,” Brannan said “You cannot be pro-econo“Our subways are melting down,” said U.S. Rep.
