Confusion reigns over Bath Avenue drug clinic plans treatment center opening at the proposed site, 1751 Bath Ave. The original “no objection” letter was issued because, at the time, the board had been led to believe that the site would be used strictly as a counseling center and that no drug treatment medications, like methadone, would be dispensed there, Elias-Pavia said. the April theAtsidewalks and11to meeting, conduct board members collections and residents more frequent of heard from the a representative of trash from cans.

Construction of the maintenance facility is expected to begin later this year, Ferguson said. The Parks Department also created a habitat for waterfowl in Calvert Vaux Park, according to the agency’s website, www.nyc.govparks.org. The 3.5-acre habitat, which was built in 2013, also included a new boat launch as well as a new ramp, fence and plantings. Named for Calvert Vaux (1824-1895), the English architect who worked with Frederick Law Olmsted on the design of Central Park, Calvert Vaux Park is located on Shore Parkway, stretching from Bay 44th Street to Bay 49th Street. Brannan called the park “a diamond in the rough.”

The Parks Department has completed a number of renovation projects in Calvert Vaux Park in recent years, according to an agency spokesperson.

The objections raised by residents centered on the specific location, not on the idea of a drug clinic per se, EliasPavia said. “There were residents who spoke out in support for those with addiction issues. But they pointed out that this location is near churches and schools,” she said. Assemblymember William Colton, a Democrat who represents Gravesend and parts of Bath Beach and Bensonhurst,
said he shares residents’ concerns over the proposal and the lack of detailed information about the drug treatment center. “This location has many reasons to make us concerned and the lack of providing information by the applicant about what they are planning to do makes us even more concerned,” Colton said in a statement. “The residents expressed their continuing concerns about a site at this location which is surrounded by so many nearby schools, churches, mosques and synagogues with senior centers and youth activities, as well as a school for autistic youth and several after-school music,
dance and tutoring activities for children.” A spokesperson for the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services told this newspaper via email on Wednesday that the agency has not received any application from any entity to open a drug clinic at 1751 Bath Ave. Meanwhile, the property owner said she’s running out of patience with the whole situation and will likely wind up renting the space to another entity. Diane Clemente, who also owns Big Apple Car Service, said the application process that the drug clinic sponsor has to go through with OASAS is
time-consuming and that she is eager to rent the space out quickly. “They don’t have final approval to open up a treatment center. That could take time. I am signing an agreement today with a broker to list the space. I’m looking to rent it as soon as possible,” Clemente told this newspaper on Monday. Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. was initially looking to rent the first floor of the building and then changed its plans and sought to lease the second floor instead, Clemente said. Representatives of Big Apple Bath Beach Inc. could not be reached for comment.

A hero among us — 68th Precinct Police Officer Joseph Power honored for bravery and dedication BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
The term hero is often bandied about casually, but 68th Precinct Police Officer Joseph Power embodies the true measure of the word. He has often risked his life and worked tirelessly to safeguard the neighborhood from drugs and illegal weapons. On Tuesday, April 23, Power was among the eight recipients of the Bay Ridge Community Council’s Police and Fire Awards at the Norwegian Christian Home, 1250 67th Street. The annual event recognizes individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference within the community. Power, along with five members of FDNY Engine Company 253, Auxiliary Lt. Rodney Aviles and Explorer Esmeilyn Tejada were recognized for their outstanding accomplishments and services. Tejada was surprised to learn that due to her dedication and service, she had been promoted to the rank of corporal. The firefighters who took the spotlight were honored for their response to a motorcyclist who had been injured in a crash on the Belt Parkway. Katherine Khatari, whose brother William Gormley of
FDNY Ladder Company 174 died from 9/11 related cancer in 2017, recognized the members of FDNY Engine 253 — Lt. Chris Tuturici and Firefighters Timothy Ambery, Matthew Gershner, Nick Alessandro and Dylan English — who saved the biker’s life. They arrived at the scene and saw that the cyclist had lost a great deal of blood and was not breathing. The members of Engine 253 provided aid to the individual as he miraculously survived thanks to their team effort. Alessandro and Ambery were on hand to accept the award on behalf of Engine 253. Power is a five-year veteran of the New York City Police Department. Prior to joining the NYPD, he received a Degree in Criminal Justice from St. Francis College. As a patrol officer, Power was one of the first members of the 68th Precinct to administer Naloxone to a victim of a heroin overdose, saving the young man’s life. He is currently assigned to the 68th Precinct’s elite anticrime unit, where has over 215 arrests, over 100 of them being felony arrests for possession of dangerous drugs and weapons. Recently, Power was involved in removing six illegal firearms from the streets within a four-month period.
Capt. Robert Conwell with Auxiliary Lt. Rodney Aviles and Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis.
His commanding officer at the 68th Precinct Capt. Robert Conwell told this paper that “Joe is a young, energetic officer, and I’m so glad to have him on my team.” Following the presentation of the awards, Power, who has spent his career working in Brooklyn, and whose family resides in Bensonhurst, took the time to answer some questions for this paper. “Removing the guns from the street was one of the best feelings I’ve ever experienced in my life,” he said. “Just knowing that those firearms could potentially have done harm to other human beings, removing them from the streets and knowing they can never be in the hands of a criminal ever again is a very good feeling and lets me sleep at night.” Keeping drugs and guns off the street, he added, is, “The most important part of the job. Drugs is what destroys a community and with drugs come illegal firearms and keeping those off the streets in my opinion makes the community safe as a whole.” Asked about the time he administered Naloxone, Power
recalled, “We arrived at the apartment and were waiting for EMS. Our communications let us know that EMS was going to be taking longer than we expected. Prior to being a police officer I was a licensed state EMT. I checked his pulse and it was getting very weak; his respirations were getting very shallow. We had no choice at that point but to administer Naloxone. So as we administered it, half sprayed in one nostril, half sprayed in the other nostril, right away he regained a pulse and respiration started to get deeper and the EMS arrived right in time.” The 68th Precinct was, “The second command I’ve been assigned to,” Power told this paper. “The first command was the 71st Precinct. This precinct, in my opinion is very good and the community is very supportive of the police officers and the precinct. We have a lot of resources from the community so we are able to give back more to the community. There are a lot of dedicated officers who serve in this area.” Power said he always knew he wanted to join the NYPD. Receiving the Cop of the Year
Capt. Robert Conwell with Police Officer Joseph Power. award was, he added, “The most rewarding aspect [of my career, so far], to be honest with you, because I’ve never gotten ‘Cop of the Year’ before. This is the first time.” That said, Power told this paper that his favorite part of the job was “probably arresting the bad guys.” And that’s something he intends to keep doing. Asked what was next for him, he replied, “Just to go out there every day and try to prevent crime by taking drugs and guns off the street to the best of my ability.” Power and the other honorees also received citations and proclamations from elected officials. Attending the cer-
emony were Assemblymembers Nicole Malliotakis and Peter Abbate, who was accompanied by his 101-year-old mother Fannie, who resides at the home. “I’m so proud that our community always remembers our first responders,” Abbate told this paper. “We’ve done this for a number of years in a row now and it’s just a great event and I’m honored to be here to do it.” Malliotakis commended the honorees for their sacrifices and heroism. “They do what they do for us and to keep our community safe,” said Malliotakis. “They do it to save lives and for that we are always indebted,” she said.

Bishop DiMarzio to hold mass for sex abuse survivors BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
rooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio is coming to a Bensonhurst church to celebrate a special mass aimed at helping survivors of sexual abuse heal from their ordeal. DiMarzio, the spiritual leader of the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese, will be the main celebrant at the Mass of Hope and Healing on Tuesday, April 30, at Saint Athanasius Church, 2154 61st St., at 7 p.m. The Rev. Jeffry Dillon will deliver the homily at the mass. “Certainly, due to the heightened media attention around the sexual abuse crisis facing the Catholic Church, I believe this year’s mass will be very important and significant for all those who participate,” DiMarzio said in a statement. “As we continue to learn even more about the abuse crisis, it becomes even more disturbing,” DiMarzio added. In February, the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese released a list of more than 100 priests in the diocese who either
had credible charges of sexual abuse leveled against them or who were hit with accusations but died before the accusations could be fully investigated. The list, which spanned the 166-year history of the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese, also included the names of priests who were convicted, who admitted to sexual misconduct with a minor or who have had allegations leveled against them that were determined credible by the Independent Diocesan Review Board. The Mass of Hope and Healing, which is now in its fifth year, is a unique event in the church, according to officials of the diocese, who pointed out that sex abuse survivors plan the service. In a new feature this year, members of the Diocesan Survivors Advisory Committee will light an Easter candle and pray for sex abuse victims who died this year. Jasmine Salazar, the vice-chancellor and victim assistance coordinator for the diocese, said the advisory committee takes a strong hand in planning the

Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio (center), pictured leading the Way of the Cross procession in downtown Brooklyn on Good Friday, said that as the church learns more about the priest sex abuse crisis, “it becomes even more disturbing.” healing mass. “The Mass of Hope and Healing was instituted because there was a need for something more, to let the survivors and victims know that the church cares and is here for them. Each year, the members of the Diocesan Survivors
Advisory Committee commit themselves to plan the specific details of this mass, to make this a very special experience that is sensitive to survivors and that also speaks to survivors,” Salazar said in a statement. The list released in February shows that the number
of incidents of priest sexual abuse peaked in the 1960s and 1970s, according to officials. Many of these incidents were reported years after they had taken place. The victims came forward after the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal erupted in 2002. The number of
reported incidents peaked again in 2017, according to officials. “I have met with many victims who have told me that more than anything, they want an acknowledgment of what was done to them. This list gives that recognition and I hope it will add another layer of healing for them on their journey toward wholeness,” DiMarzio stated at the time the list was released. In 2017, the diocese started the Independent Reconciliation and Compensation Program, to reach financial settlements with victims. The program is administered by lawyer Kenneth Feinberg, whose firm handled the 9/11 Compensation Fund. Since 2002, the diocese has shared all of its files and allegations against priests with the district attorneys of Brooklyn and Queens. The Brooklyn diocese covers both boroughs. In 2004, DiMarzio established a telephone hotline for anyone to report allegations of sexual abuse. The phone number is 1-888-634-4499.

Long road ahead for victims of massive Sunset Park apartment fire BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
There is a long road ahead for those working to rebuild the bulk of a Sunset Park building that was destroyed by a massive six-alarm fire earlier this month. City officials stopped by Community Board 7’s monthly meeting on Wednesday, two weeks to the day the fire broke out, to update local residents on the status of 702 44th St. “The whole sixth floor is really compromised,” Deputy Commissioner of Operations at the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM) Frank McCarton said, adding that both the owner of the building and the Department of Buildings have been working closely with the
agency. “We continue to have on-site meetings with them daily. We were there today.” As of Wednesday, McCarton said, floors three, four and five had been shored, with the start of debris removal from the sixth floor where the fire broke out, slated for Monday. The sixth floor, he stressed, has to be braced — as do the day care center and the church next door, before they can be re-occupied. When asked when the building would be deemed liveable again, McCarton suggested that it would be a long haul. Next steps, McCarton said, include “the restabilization of the building, the rebuilding of the floors, the rebuilding of the roof and [the gutting of] all 54 apartments.” Then, they’ll need to be rebuilt, he said.
“We have some concerns in regards to the structure,” added Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez, commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct, who is continuing to deploy officers to the site. “The avenue is blocked off right now, just for safety. There are also concerns for school children. We don’t want them walking on that side of the street, so we have them crossing to the other side of the building.” Speakers also said security has been upped at the site with the installation of surveillance cameras to help protect victims’ valuables. “We’re going to ensure that property managers are maintaining on-site security,” Gonzalez said. OEM will stay on the job until surrounding structures are
re-occupied, but will continue to work with relevant agencies until victims are back in their homes. It is also working closely with animal control, McCarton said, to ensure that any animals officials may find alive make it home to their families. Though, he stressed, most pets did not survive the fire. Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, who also attended the meeting, stressed the importance of continued support. “There have been many crisis moments in this district,” he said. “I want to remind everyone that, as we move forward, the people that have been impacted need to lead their own recovery. What we need to do as city agencies, leaders of our community — and what we have been doing — is help, not because
FDNY and city officials attended a Community Board 7 meeting Wednesday to update residents on the state of 702 44th St. ebrooklyn media/Photo by Jaime DeJesus they are paid to do this work but because they feel the heart and love of this community and they feel the loss. Whatever they need, we need
to support.” By press time, a GoFundMe for victims of the fire had raised almost $119,000 towards its $125,000 goal.

Ninth annual benefit set for 152nd Brooklyn Memorial Day Parade BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
Everyone loves a parade and Brooklyn’s 152nd Kings County Memorial Day Parade is one of the oldest in the nation. And to make sure it keeps marching along, there’s a festive fundraiser happening on April 28 at Patsy’s restaurant, 8814 Third Avenue in Bay Ridge. It’s the ninth annual such event that helps raise funds for the parade while attendees enjoy an afternoon filled with good food, drinks, music and a 50/50 raffle. Ray Aalbue, who serves as
chair of Brooklyn’s 152nd Memorial Day Parade Committee, recently announced that former state Sen. Marty Golden will be this year’s parade grand marshal. Golden, a former New York City police officer and city councilmember, served as state senator from 2003 to 2018 and sponsored thousands of bills in the Senate focused on public safety, tax cuts, economic development, education and senior citizen quality of life. The fundraiser will feature an impressive lineup of musical talent including the popular local group Whippoorwill, with Paul Cassone, Matt
D’Emic and John Lepore performing pop, rock and folk songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s opening the show at 2 p.m. They’re followed by Irish favorites the Canny Brothers at 3 p.m.; then, at 4 p.m., top pop group Alive N Kickin featuring Pepe Cardona, who scored a top-10 hit with “Tighter, Tighter” in 1970; the Rolling Stones tribute band Sha-Doobie at 5 p.m.; and pop-rock group Head and South at 6 p.m. This year, the parade committee has designated the American Legion as deputy marshal since it’s celebrating its 100th anniversary.
New York’s Norwegian Consul General Harriet Berg will also be an honorary guest at this year’s parade. American accordion music will be performed by Ellen Lindstrom of the Swedish
Meatballs at the Salty Dog benefit. “We look forward to an afternoon filled with great food, good music and wonderful raffles prizes,” said Arlene Rutuelo, parade gen-
eral chair. “We are thankful for the continued support of our beloved community. Three cheers for the Salty Dog for hosting us again. Come join us, be a Viking for the day!”
From butterflies to smartboards, southwest Brooklyn residents make their choices in area’s inaugural participatory budgeting vote BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
Earlier this month, more than 2,000 Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach and Bensonhurst residents chose how to spend city funds allocated to their neighborhoods through participatory budgeting. Throughout the month of April, constituents of the 46th District over the age of 11 were asked to vote on how they’d like to see Councilmember Justin Brannan spend one million dollars he’d earmarked from his capital funding. It was the first time the dis-
trict has taken part in participatory budgeting. Winning projects include (in order) new smartboards for P.S. 102 (826 votes), the creation of a butterfly habitat at Shore Road Park (810 votes), security cameras for Fifth Avenue (798 votes), smart boards for P.S./I.S. 30 (768 votes), new trees and tree guards (752 votes) and a meeting room upgrade for McKinley Library (551 vote). The highest price tag belongs to the butterfly habitat, which will run $500,000. Renovations to Dyker Park’s basketball and handball courts nearly made the cut, coming in sixth place with a total of 519 votes. Other contenders includ-
ed upgrades to Vinland Playground, renovations to the bocce courts in McKinley Park, a new dog park at Cannonball Park, and security cameras for 18th Avenue and Bath Avenue, respectively. The 12 projects people got to choose from were the product of several months of brainstorming during which Brannan’s office collected ideas from all over the district, which encompasses the neighborhoods of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst and Bath Beach. Constituents could go to any of eight voting sites, and could also cast their ballots at several subway pop-ups and online.

DIGITAL FAIRYTALES: VENGEANCE IS MINE When one encounters the term “Vengeance,” it is with excitement, suspicion and dread. For vengeance to exist, there must be a prior perception of victimhood, a grievance. The scale of which is determined by the protagonist, but the roles can quickly be flipped. And flipped and flipped again. The chain of vengeance can go on and on and, unless broken, lead to ever escalating levels of calamity. When: Mondays-Sundays through April 30th Where: DUMBO/Made in NY media Center (30 John Street)
TRANSCENDENTAL PATHWAY Featuring work by Rachel Cohen, Deanna
Lee, Christina Massey, Elizabeth Riley, Christine Romanell, Linda Schmidt, Transcendental can be described simply as abstract. It has other definitions though from mathematical use, such as incapable of being the root of an algebraic equation with rational coefficients, (π for example), or as relating to an experience determined by the mind’s makeup. Six artists in this exhibit take on different approaches to that definition through their individual styles of abstraction, be that from their intuitive creative approaches to inspiration from mathematical equations. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through April 29th, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Gallery 55 (55 Water Street)

LEA THOMAS– CURRENTS
KITCHEN STILL LIFES BY JAN GROOVER
A drop of dark blue appears, its stain spreading over the surface. Tendrils stretch across, their circuits entwining and dispersing, carving lucid pathways in their wake. The deepest blue requires more than just one application, it is a multitude of layers blended into one another, with slightly different circumstances and results each time, as sapphire streams ebb and flow concurrently. The azure currents of time, energy, and memory upwell and merge in union. Lea Thomas applies this aesthetic philosophy in her practice, creating a pool of the deepest blue for her hand-woven textiles. With a lineage harkening back to the traditional use of Japanese indigo in its process and symbolism, Thomas’s work echoes the motion of her predecessors, diving far under the waves of deep time. As the fibers submerge into a vat of natural dye, so does one’s consciousness surge in connection to our environment, our humanity,

Jan Groover created her famous Kitchen Still Lifes in 1978 and 1979. Using a large-format camera, she transformed colanders, knives, spatulas and baking pans into objects of beauty that still hold a visual interest that transcends their common use. Her seductively modern color palette of greens, pewter, bronze and brown tonalities permeates the space dissected by kitchen paraphernalia. These take on a new visual meaning as a result of Groover’s juxtaposition of the elements. Although never unrecognizable as everyday objects, these utensils float into an abstract amalgam of planes and shapes. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through May 11th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden, Inc (91 Water Street)

Judge rules against affordable housing construction in landmarked Crown Heights garden By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
The city’s need for affordable housing and services for the mentally ill should not influence the fate of landmarked buildings, according to a Brooklyn judge. Those are not among the criteria the Landmarks Preservation Commission is legally mandated to consider when deciding whether to give developers permission to make changes to landmarked properties, Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Katherine Levine ruled earlier this month. The case concerns the Dean Sage Mansion at 839 St. Marks Ave. in the Crown Heights North Historic District. It focuses on the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 2016 approval of a plan by the property’s owner, the Institute for Community Living, to construct a new building that would have occupied more than half of the mansion’s garden. The preservation commission’s decision was “arbitrary and capricious and based upon an error of law,” Levine wrote in an April 2 decision. She overturned the preservation agency’s approval of a plan to develop 70 apartments on the site — a mix of supportive housing for mentally ill adults and affordable units. She
did so by vacating a certificate of appropriateness the Landmarks Preservation Commission had issued. That’s a document property owners must obtain before altering the exteriors of landmarked buildings. The judge also ruled that the commission must hold a new hearing about the Dean Sage Mansion project. She said in her decision that cutting the size of the garden by 60 percent would obscure the eastern facade of the house — so it would no longer look like a stand-alone mansion. Most mansions in the landmarked district were torn down a long time ago, making the Dean Sage Mansion’s contribution to the neighborhood’s historic character especially important, Levine wrote.
WHAT FACTORS ARE WITHIN LANDMARKS’ JURISDICTION?
Levine’s ruling was a victory for community groups and neighborhood residents who’d filed suit against the Landmarks Preservation Commission and the Institute for Community Living. The groups were the St. Marks Avenue Independent Block Association, the Bergen-Kingston Block Association and the Crown Heights North Association. The case is an Article 78 proceeding, which means it was brought against government agencies. In this type of
suit, the plaintiffs are called petitioners. The defendants are called respondents. An important architect, Russell Sturgis, designed the HighVictorian Gothic mansion. Dean Sage, who made his fortune in the lumber industry, constructed it in 1870. The Landmarks Preservation Commission erred in its decision-making by considering factors outside its legally mandated jurisdiction, Levine decided. In her ruling she cited landmarking law, which instructs the commission to consider “the factors of aesthetic, historical and architectural values and significance, architectural style, design, arrangement, texture, material and color” as well as “other pertinent matters.” The phrase “other pertinent matters” should be narrowly interpreted, the judge said in her decision. “It would be absurd and contrary to the raison d’etre of the [landmarks law] to give the [Landmarks Preservation Commission] carte blanche to consider, as pertinent to its determinations, factors that did not enhance and protect and perpetuate these buildings such as the LPC’s finding that it was socially desirable to build more housing for the developmentally challenged and/or the economic and fiscal constraints of developers of such projects,” Levine wrote in her ruling.

Eye on REAL ESTATE “We hope the Institute for Community Living will continue to use their other properties (of which they have more than 10 in Brooklyn) to provide supportive housing services to their target population,” she added. “We are extremely pleased by Judge Levine’s decision and believe it may have a wider impact,” Derrick Hilbertz, a petitioner in the Dean Sage Mansion case, told INBrooklyn.
‘REFOCUS THE LENS OF PRESERVATION’
Here's a Brooklyn Avenue view of the Institute for Community Living's development plan for the Dean Sage Rendering by Dattner Architects and Easton Architects via the Landmarks Preservation Commission Mansion site.
Judge rules against affordable housing construction in landmarked Crown Heights garden — Continued from page 10INB — But in public hearings, commissioners “lauded the social and economic values espoused by the Institute for Community Living in expanding its mission at the [Dean Sage Mansion] site,” Levine wrote.
A spokesperson for the Institute for Community Living told INBrooklyn it’s “very disappointed” by Levine’s ruling, “which disregards the long-held principle that the Landmarks Preservation Commission is an expert panel whose decisions should be accorded deference.” The Institute is “considering all options for moving forward and remains fully committed to continuing with our mission as a nonprofit to help New Yorkers lead healthier lives,” the spokesperson said. “We went above and beyond to ensure the project was in sync with the historic district requirements and met with various community organizations to take questions and suggestions,” he told INBrooklyn. “We allocated considerable funds to fully restoring the mansion, which will benefit the entire community and enhance the historic district.” The spokesperson said there’s a “great and growing need” in Brooklyn for services the institute provides for people living with mental illness, substance abuse issues and developmental disabilities. “Our plans for the Dean Sage Mansion, where we have provided services since the late 1990s, would not only have allowed us to continue to provide support services to New Yorkers, but also created much-needed affordable housing for many more,” he said.
Preservation experts say Levine’s decision will remind the Landmarks Preservation Commission that its purpose is to preserve sites with historic, social or cultural significance rather than to promote affordable-housing construction. “Landmarks should be adaptively reused, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s oversight plays a crucial role in determining how historic buildings can appropriately evolve to be functional in the 21st century,” Kelly Carroll, the Historic Districts Council’s director of advocacy and community outreach, told INBrooklyn. “It is excellent that this ruling serves as an example that preservation, under the Landmarks Law, has nothing to do with [a building’s] use,” she said. “Hopefully this ruling will refocus the lens of preservation and aid in reminding all parties involved that preservation is about buildings, not their uses, however lofty or attractive aspirations might seem.” Carroll provided an expert affidavit to support the petitioners in the Dean Sage Mansion case. If the commission’s approval of the housing development in the mansion’s garden had been allowed to stand, “an unruly precedent would be introduced into Landmarks Preservation Commission proceedings,” Historic Districts Council Executive Director Simeon Bankoff told INBrooklyn. “Regardless if one wants the Landmarks Preservation Commission to have the ability to consider use in their judgments, they do not and this decision rightly doubles down on this determination of authority,” Bankoff said. “To have not done so might open the door to great uncertainty within the regulation of our city’s landmarks and an erosion of their continued existence,” he added.
‘WRONG COMPASS’ FOR THE LANDMARKS PRESERVATION COMMISSION
This is the eastern facade of the Dean Sage Mansion.
THE INSTITUTE FOR COMMUNITY LIVING IS ‘VERY DISAPPOINTED’
The city is considering whether to appeal Levine’s decision. “The [Landmarks Preservation] Commission thoroughly reviewed this proposal and determined the proposed changes will not detract from the historic and architectural character of the mansion or the Crown Heights North Historic District,” City Law Department spokesperson Nick Paolucci told INBrooklyn. “The Commission stands by its approvals and is evaluating its legal options, including whether to appeal this court ruling,” he said. Law Department attorneys represented the Landmarks Preservation Commission in the case.
Community groups took the Dean Sage Mansion case to court to compel Meenakshi Srinivasan, who was then the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s chairperson, to “reassess her priorities in fulfilling the agency’s mission, which is historic preservation, not housing,” Ethel Tyus of the Crown Heights North Association told INBrooklyn. “We felt vindicated for expending the money and time to closely examine what was actually happening within the inner workings of the Landmarks Preservation Commission,” she said. “The former Chair brought the wrong compass with her from her prior positions with the Board of Standards and Appeals and the Department of City Planning.” The community groups want the Dean Sage Mansion to be “preserved and celebrated for its design, its architecturally significant character and its importance to the entire historic district,” Tyus said.

Nationwide Titles Plates . Registration ON THE SPOT PLATES Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from April 25, 1945 ON APRIL 24, 1862, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Victor Hugo’s Les Miserables. — A curious interest attaches to this remarkable French novel, which Mr. Carleton of New York has in press from advance foreign sheets. The author’s only other novel, ‘Notre Dame de Paris,’ was accepted by its publisher on condition that he should bring out every succeeding work by that author. ‘Notre Dame’ proved a brilliant success, and made the fortune of — the publisher. Victor Hugo then wrote ‘Les Miserables,’ determining to respect the condition, but to make his own terms with the unscrupulous brain-trafficker. These terms were at once rejected, and the author, unreleased from the old obligation, was obliged to put by his manuscript for a more favorable season. Year after year he renewed his proposals, increasing each year his demand, until at last the publisher died, and, after waiting nearly a quarter of a century, the well-seasoned, if not seasonable, ‘Les Miserables’ is in press.” ON APRIL 25, 1886, the Eagle reported, “Paris, April 24 — A stock company with a large capital has been organized for the purpose of erecting the tallest tower ever seen in the world in time for the International Exposition of 1889. The tower is to have a total height of 984 feet and will be supported on four pillars higher than the steeple of Notre Dame. The whole structure will cost $208,000. It will be surmounted by a group of electric lights, which will illuminate all Paris, and will, it is estimated, be visible at Dijon, 197 miles distant.” ON APRIL 25, 1945, the Eagle reported, “London, April 25 (U.P.) — British Lancasters attacked Hitler’s Berchtesgaden hideout with six-ton earthquake bombs today, and American reconnaissance pilots said fires still were burning close to it more than four hours later. There was no indication whether Hitler was at his mountain retreat when the R.A.F.’s biggest bombers struck at it for the first time, possibly in an attempt on the Fuehrer’s life. Intense antiaircraft fire from the batteries around Berchtesgaden led some observers to speculate that Hitler was there. The Nazis, however, have insisted he is directing the defense of Berlin. There are three primary targets in the Berchtesgaden area: Hitler’s country home; the SS barracks on the grounds, and Hitler’s mountain retreat, about five miles from the country home and called ‘The Eagle’s Nest.’” ON APRIL 26, 1952, the Eagle reported, “’It was at eleven that a delirium of joy and thanksgiving swept over humanity…’ Mrs. Esther Scholnick, mother of 11 children, eight of whom served in World War II, stood silently as the words of the American Legion’s 11 o’clock ritual were spoken last night at the sixth annual ball and entertainment of Maurice G. Jones Post in the Biltmore Ballroom, 2230 Church Ave. Her heart was full. It was one of the happiest moments of her life. From former Deputy Controller Milton Solomon, a past county commander of the Legion, she had just received the ‘Certificate of Merit.’ It was the Legion’s way of honoring Mrs. Scholnick and her husband, Louis, whose ‘eight valiant sons’ are now continuing their service to the community as Legionnaires. All eight were recruited by Post Commander William Panessa and inducted in November. Jones Post is the only one in the country with eight brothers as members. Somewhere in Kansas there’s a Legion post with five brothers. ‘I’m deeply touched, my heart is failing,’ said Mrs. Scholnick as she accepted the award.”

Brooklyn author Jessica Love wins prestigious book award BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
rooklyn writer and artist Jessica Love has snagged a prestigious award for her recently published children’s book, “Julián is a Mermaid.” Love received the Illustrator Honor Award from the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, named after the late children’s author and illustrator, for the volume, which was published by Candlewick Press. “Ezra Jack Keats was one of those remarkable people who really did make the world better than it was before he lived in it,” Love told this paper. “He brought his prodigious talent to bear on these quiet, humble stories, making us look closer at the stuff we do every day. He filled his books with people of many colors, never making the color of their skin the focus of his stories. He made books with tremendous quiet grace, and lived his life that way too.” Love has worked as a theater actor for the last 10 years and currently lives in
Sunset Park. “To receive an Ezra Jack Keats Honor is, for me, a profound encouragement that I at least have my shoes on the right feet, and am walking in the right direction,” added Love. The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, in partnership with the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection at The University of Southern Mississippi, announced the award winners at a ceremony held on April 4, during the Fay B. Kaigler Children’s Book Festival at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. Deborah Pope, executive director of the Ezra Jack Keats Foundation, said, “It is a joy and a privilege each year to recognize and support new writers and illustrators who create beautiful and entertaining books that reflect the childhood experiences of our diverse population.” Pope believes that the Ezra Jack Keats Award brings greater attention to artists who, like Keats, seek to inspire all children to achieve their full potential. “I’m proud that children’s

honoring one of Brooklyn’s greats, Ezra Jack Keats, who was born and grew up here in East New York,” Pope told this paper.
“It also gives me a special thrill to know that many of these authors and illustrators, who like Ezra, are celebrating this country’s diverse population, have migrated to Brooklyn to do their work,” she went on. “In fact, Jessica is one of the incredible artist/authors who’ve come to Brooklyn and found special inspiration to create wonderful books, like ‘Julian is a Mermaid.’” Other winners include John Sullivan, who won the writer’s award for “Kitten and the Night Watchman,” and Oge Mora, who won the illustrator award for “Thank you, Omu!” which she also wrote. The winning writer and illustrator each received $3,000 and a bronze medallion. In addition, Jane McGuinness also won an Illustrator Honor Award for “Prickly Hedgehogs!” which she also wrote. The 2019 Ezra Jack Keats Award Honor winners for writing were Juana Martinez-Neal for “Alma and How She Got Her Name,” Matt James for “The Funeral” and Keith Calabrese for “Lena’s Shoes
are Nervous: A First Day-ofSchool Dilemma.” Sophie Blackall — who won the 2003 EJK Award for Illustrator for her children’s book “Ruby’s Wish” as well as two Caldecott Medals, in 2016 for “Finding Winnie,” and this year for “Hello Lighthouse” — presented the 2019 Ezra Jack Keats Awards. Bweela Steptoe, a renowned designer of unique wearable art, delivered the Keats lecture. To be eligible for the Ezra Jack Keats Award, the author and/or illustrator must have had no more than three children’s picture books published prior to the year under consideration. “This year’s EJK Award winners celebrated human connection and kindness through thoughtful books that remind us of the sheer joy and the lasting impact of Ezra’s work,” said Ellen Ruffin, curator of the de Grummond Children’s Literature Collection and the Keats Archive. “We look forward to their continued, illustrious careers, writing and illustrating delightful children’s books that make a difference.”

ast week, I had the honor of being a guest at the state GOP dinner held in the city at the Grand Hyatt on 42nd Street. Inasmuch as I now serve as the state chairperson of the Conservative Party, I was seated at the head table next to Gov. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska, who also serves as the chairperson of the Republican Governors Association. Gov. Ricketts — who was the principal speaker — stayed for almost the entire event so we had ample time to talk. He is a very interesting individual from a family that amassed great wealth in a self-made manner. Gov. Ricketts’ father Joe Ricketts, who a few years back retired as TD chairperson, created one of the first online brokerages, Ameritrade, which when federal banking laws were updated, purchased TD Bank, forming TD Ameritrade. His brother Todd is on the TD board. Prior to being elected, Gov. Ricketts
himself was a board member. The family trust, a few years back, purchased the Chicago Cubs and is credited with making the moves that brought them in 2016 their first World Series title since 1908. Gov. Ricketts and three of his siblings occupy four of the five board seats. Gov. Ricketts seems to have discovered the trick to managing a state in a businesslike manner without losing sight of the safety net government needs to offer for those less fortunate. Although Nebraska on every level except physical size is very different from New York, like every state, it has people in need. Gov. Ricketts takes the view that the best safety net, creating the highest-paying, most sustainable jobs is the private sector. His government works to foster an environment that works to create and keep jobs. As those jobs are created, his Department of Labor and various economic development groups around
the state work with the private sector closely to place those in need into jobs that best fit their need. Thus, the state will make an effort to place a mother needing work into a job that allows her to work when the children are in school. Of course, New York will make the same claim. Unfortunately, in New York the safety net is more likely issuing a benefit card than finding the private sector job that works well. Pete Ricketts is as likely to speak of markets and the free market system as he is about government. I found this a refreshing change from what I have come to expect. I would imagine if Andrew Cuomo and Gov. Ricketts were sitting together, they would have nothing to speak about. *** At this same GOP dinner, Republican state Chairperson Ed Cox's wife Tricia Nixon Cox was also seated at my table. I have met Mrs. Cox a few times, but never really had a chance
COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR
Gov. Ricketts seems to have discovered the trick to managing a state in a businesslike manner without losing sight of the safety net government needs to offer for those less fortunate. to speak with her. I had observed over the years a number of significant upgrades in the Nixon Foundation’s social media and museum store, and wished to offer my opinion of the changes (Mrs. Cox sits on the board). We spoke for a while and she seemed to appreciate my comments about what I considered important improvements that made the site as well as its social media components far more informative and user-friendly.
A FAIR SHAKE
he past election cycle was transformative, but not just along political lines. At every level of government, female representation reached historic levels. And still, our government of the people, by the people, for the people is far from representative. Ten more women are now in the state legislature, thanks in part to wins here in the city by Alessandra Biaggi, Mathylde Frontus, Jessica Ramos and Julia Salazar. Nonetheless, despite an increase never before seen, women still only account for less than a third of all legislators in Albany. In Washington, the number of female members of Congress rose by 17. Though a shift of this magnitude was unprecedented, still under 25 percent of all congressional seats today are held by women. In the circles of activism
and organizing I run in, here in Brooklyn, women not only dominate the ranks of those taking an active role in our community, but they are most often the ones assuming leadership roles. At the most local level, women are already the majority of changemakers we see out front. Nobody’s opportunity to serve in office should be based on their identity, but there is no reason why women shouldn’t make up closer to half of our elected officials. In any particular race, the goal should be to put forth the best candidates. However, across large sample sizes like the state legislature or Congress, the percentage of women holding office should more closely reflect the citizenry those houses represent. Unfortunately, remedying this under-representation has been a one-sided affair.
Of the 10 seats picked up by women in the state Senate and Assembly in 2018, all but one were Democrats. Even with historic gains in Congress, the number of female Republican members fell significantly. Whereas Democrats now have nearly six times as many women in the House of Representatives as they did 20 years ago, Republicans have exactly the same
about the letter and the events around it. Tricia Nixon Cox, more than most, has witnessed American and world history unfold before her. I am unaware of any bio of her life or any oral history she has agreed to record. Such an undertaking would be very much worthwhile. *** Mike Long will be the honoree at the annual New York state Conservative Party dinner being held on June 20 at the Sheraton Times Square. Mike will be receiving a new award in the name of former U.S. Sen. and Federal Court of Appeals Judge James Buckley. Sen. Buckley will be presenting Mike with the award. If you would like more information about this testimonial dinner, please call the Conservative Party at 718-921-2158.
MATTER OF FACT
Making progress on this front has fallen almost entirely on the political party that doesn’t consider “progressive” to be a dirty word.
Nobody’s opportunity to serve in office should be based on their identity, but there is no reason why women shouldn’t make up closer to half of our elected officials.
We also had a chance to talk about the Nixon Library which is run by the foundation. My wife Janet and I had visited the library only a few weeks before it closed for a lengthy renovation. I was interested in knowing what remained and what was new. It turned out that many of the signature design elements in the original library had remained, which I was happy to hear inasmuch as I thought they gave this presidential library a unique feel. I also had a chance to talk to Mrs. Cox about a letter on display that was from the local GOP chairperson to Nixon, newly returned from World War II, asking him to consider a run for Congress and in two or three lines going over his chances. I felt it was an item that I could in particular appreciate. Sure enough, we had a discussion

number as in 1989. Democrats should be proud of this and further commit to increasing opportunities for women in elected positions. A test case for this and how female candidates are treated is playing out right now in the crowded field of those vying for the party’s nomination to run for the highest office in the land. About 20 Democratic candidates have thus far declared they are running for president in 2020, with a few more likely to throw their hats in the ring within the following month or two. Six women, most of whom are current members of Congress who are considered
top-tier contenders, can be counted among the field. The media coverage has seemed uneven, at best. Having previously mounted a presidential campaign, polling at the top, and raising the most money to date, it is understandable that Bernie Sanders would receive a lot of attention. But Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand are next on the list of top money raisers, considerably higher than Beto O'Rourke and Pete Buttigieg. Nonetheless, both men have seemed to garner more buzz and are polling higher. The women seem constantly to face criticisms about personality traits and likeability, while the men do not. Typical headlines about female candidates begin
with something positive, followed by a "but" and then often a reference to a male contender. It seems as if mention of the women is frequently qualified with some exception. In this crowded field, with so many fighting for attention, media coverage is critical to each campaign. The amount of coverage affects how one polls. Pete Buttigieg, for instance, rocketed to near the top of the polls after a frenzy of reporting on him followed his official entry into the race. When the Democratic debates begin in two months, the female candidates will have the opportunity to speak directly to the American people. Hopefully, following that they will be afforded a fair shake.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey
Who’s really who in Bay Ridge?
Ragamuffin grand marshals, BRCC civic honorees, Third Ave. pioneers among those who exemplify Ridge’s volunteer spirit For more than six decades, the Bay Ridge Community Council — an umbrella organization composed of citizens from all kinds of civic, religious and business endeavors — has selected an honoree for its coveted Civic Award. Also for more than six decades, the Ragamuffin Parade Committee, led by Rose Gangi, has chosen a grand marshal and a “Person of the Year” to highlight the colorful autumn parade that has enriched the lives of thousands of children in our little town on the Narrows. A comparative newcomer — the Third

Avenue Pioneers Reception — is in its 26th year, but, like Ragamuffin and the BRCC, its leadership (Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe chief among them) has recognized the good that volunteers do in their volunteer lives and on the job. This column has regularly focused on the civic awardees, the grand marshals and others. Since Howe has announced that the 26th Pioneers Reception has been scheduled for Oct. 28 at the Bay Ridge Manor, with the 2019 honorees to be announced shortly, our focus this week will shine a brief spotlight on some reigning Pioneers.

BREZINSKI, Elaine (nee Murad) — On April 12, 2019. Beloved wife of the late Alexander G. Loving mother of Amelia Pollock (Kevin), Alexis Brezinski and the late Anthony G. Proud grandmother of Alexander and Elaine Pollock. Dear sister to Henry Murad and the late Harriet Habib-Puca. Loving aunt of Brenda Murad, Peter Murad (Deborah), Lili Murad, Richard Murad, Jeffrey Habib (Jessica) and George Habib (Kathy). Also survived by many cherished friends. A Mass of Christian Burial was held on April 17 at Our Lady of Angels R.C. Church. All services arranged by Clavin Funeral Home.
QUINN, Margaret — Always called Sis or Aunt Sis, was born on May 24, 1917 in Brooklyn. She was the second child and the first girl born to James and Margaret Quinn, both of whom had emigrated from County Tipperary, Ireland.
She grew up in Brooklyn and after high school she went to work at various jobs. During WWII, she worked for Western Electric on an assembly line. After the war, she went back to school to be trained on a business machine called the comptometer, used heavily on Wall Street to calculate the prices of stocks and bonds in decimals. She excelled at this work and continued to work on Wall Street for many decades. During the 1960s, she recognized that IBM was an up-and-comer and she invested in it before most people. In 1993, when the World Trade Center was attacked, Sis fled the building without her coat and took the subway home. When she finally retired from Dean Witter/Morgan Stanley, she was in her late 80s. Many people were shocked that she was so old, but due to her lifelong love of yogurt and walking everywhere, she looked 20 years younger. Sis lived on 75th Street in Bay Ridge for over 70 years and was a devoted parishioner at Our Lady of Angels Church all those years. On Saturday afternoon at 4:55, you would see her walking briskly from her apartment building to 5 p.m. mass at OLA. She loved to shop and you would often find her on Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge or taking the subway to Lord and Taylor. Always the subway, she didn’t like buses and never learned to drive. She loved Lord and Taylor and shopping there became her hobby in retirement. She lived independently until she was in her middle 90s. When the time came for her to make a move, it was to Staten Island to be closer to her sister Alice and some of her nieces and nephews who had moved from

DOLAN, James — Passed away peacefully on April 17. James was born on July 9, 1950 in Queens and grew up in Bay Ridge and Staten Island. His close family and friends called him “Don,” a nickname that would never leave him. In 1967, he joined the United States Marine Corp and served until 1970. He was a Vietnam veteran. He was awarded the National Defense Service Medal and the Vietnam Service Medal during his tenure. In 1997, James married Mary Jo Picciolo from Bay Ridge. They lived happily in Edison, N.J. until they made Naples, Florida their home. James loved Naples, the beautiful surroundings and the wonderful people. James was a proud member of the Millwrights Union 740, as well as a proud member of Ironworkers Local 40, the Dockbuilders and the New York City Council of Carpenters. His favorite memory of these years was having the opportunity to place the antenna on top of the original World Trade Center.
VALET PARKING PRIVATE ATTENDED PARKING LOT
James also loved working in the hospitality industry. He worked at fine establishments including the Plaza Hotel. His most cherished time was when he held the position of Food & Beverage Manager at the Algonquin Hotel in New York. James loved traveling. He traveled extensively with his wife, Mary Jo. Europe, Alaska and Cuba were just some of the many destinations they visited. They also sailed on the Queen Elizabeth 2 through the Norwegian fjords. James’ most recent trip was to Great Britain. He also had the opportunity to visit Normandy, a place he held dear to his heart as a Marine veteran. James was very fond of taking short trips to Cape May, Boston and Key West. James was recently diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis, a rare disease caused by exposure to Agent Orange from his time on the ground in Vietnam. The disease was aggressive and incurable, and took his life in a short period of time. James leaves behind his loving wife Mary Jo, his sister Doreen Harris and extended family. All who knew him were blessed to have James in their lives. He was
a special man: smart and kind with a unique sense of humor. He was someone to look up to and admire. Godspeed Marine. Semper Fi. Mass of Christian Burial April 25 at Saint Andrew the Apostle Church. All services arranged by Clavin Funeral Home.
THOMAS, Peter James — On April 21. Beloved husband of the late Claudia (nee Irvine). Loving father of Brian and Wayne. Dear uncle to many nieces and nephews.

PRAYER TO SAINT EXPEDITE
Most glorious martyr and blessed protector St. Expedite! Overlooking our demerits and based solely on your attainments and in the most precious blood of Jesus, we humbly ask that you bring us the ability to possess a humble faith, to perform abundant good works and to show fruits leading to everlasting life. Make our hope string and unwavering, even amid toils and bitter penury. Make us have an ardent charity that each day feeds our divine love. Make us see in each other a true image of our Good God. Let our words, thoughts, and actions reflect our constant search for the glory of God; may we never stray from the teachings of our Holy Mother, the Church, that we may always see in the Supreme Pastor the representative of Jesus Christ on Earth; we beg you to bring us from the Lord serene, calm days for our Mother Church, fortuitous days for our country, may the sick find healing for their maladies, may the infidel find the saving grace of the Holy Gospel, may those who leave this valley of tears find the joy of Christ’s embrace, and may the souls of our dead find rest in everlasting peace. Finally, oh glorious martyr, make it possible for the Lord to give us loyalty to Jesus here and when we reach the sweet bye and bye, Amen. (Ask for your boon now.) Right after this prayer, say three Our Fathers and three special Glorias as follow: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and the Holy Spirit; may they give power to St. Expedite so he may grant me what I want fast.
