City Looks at Re-Developing Abe Stark Rink in Coney Island BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

T

here are no plans on the drawing board yet but the New York City Economic Development Corporation (EDC) is considering a major re-development of the famed Abe Stark Rink in Coney Island where ice skaters have dreamed of Olympic glory and hockey players have shot the puck for decades. EDC officials confirmed that the 48-yearold ice rink is due for a makeover. “We see tremendous potential in revitalizing the Abe Stark Rink to deliver more recreation options to the Coney Island community,” EDC spokesperson Ryan Birchmeier told this newspaper. The agency has not issued a Request for Proposals (RFP), a first step in any re-development process. But Councilmember Mark Treyger, who represents Coney Island,

Abe Stark Rink poised for a makeover. said he is concerned that once the process starts, EDC will move forward too quickly and that neighborhood residents won’t get a say in what is built at the site. Abe Stark Rink is located between Surf Avenue and the Riegelmann Boardwalk between West 19th and West 20th streets Treyger said his concerns were heightened recently when he spotted a flier on a Coney Island street from a Brazilian developer which listed various amenities to be built at

the eight-acre Abe Stark site, including condos. The flier alarmed Coney Island residents, Treyger said, because the notice made it appear as if the developer already had a deal with EDC. Community Board 13 was not informed of any development plans, Treyger said. Treyger is demanding an explanation from the city. “The community deserves clarity,” he told this newspaper. The councilmember has asked EDC to hold a public meeting to discuss the future of the Abe Stark site. “I want to hear specifically from the people who live in Coney Island. They must be front and center in this process,” he said. Under a 2009 zoning change for Coney Island crafted by then-Councilmember Domenic Recchia, any redevelopment of the Abe Stark Rink would have to include an ice rink. But the question of what would surround the rink is up in the air. The zoning change, which was finalized by the City Council during the Bloomberg administration, envisioned

an upgraded amusement area near the Boardwalk with hotels, restaurants and 5,000 units of affordable housing. Treyger said he would like to see the city build a recreation complex at the site similar to the Aviator Sports facility operating on the former site of Floyd Bennett Field. Aviator, a 30-acre complex, offers everything from ice hockey to golf to lacrosse. An EDC official said the city is leaning toward expanding the recreational space at Abe Stark and adding community space to the site. In response to Treyger’s concerns, Birchmeier said Coney Island residents will certainly have input. “We are excited to move this project forward, which will begin with several community meetings to gather input from Coney Island residents that will help shape the future of this community asset,” he said. Abe Stark Rink, which opened in 1970, is named after Abe Stark (1894-1972) who served three terms as Brooklyn borough president in the 1950s and 1960s, and was known by the nickname “Mr. Brooklyn,” according to the New York City Parks Department’s website. Today, Abe Stark Rink is used by scores of hockey teams, both children and adult squads, and draws large crowds of ice skaters at public skating sessions held on weekends. The rink is currently closed for the summer season and is expected to re-open in the fall.

$12 MILLION IN COUNCIL FUNDING SLATED FOR RIDGE, DYKER, BENSONHURST The City Council’s 2019 Fiscal Year budget is looking like a good one for southern Brooklyn, with $12 million alone slated for Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst. The total includes funding for local public schools, parks and non-profits (including local theater groups, little leagues, senior centers and bigger groups like the Arab American Association of New York), Councilmember Justin Brannan told this paper. Non-profits and schools will each see $2 million in Council funding, Brannan said, with schools in his district set to see a few new auditoriums, a bevy of technological upgrades, laptops and more. Parks in the area will be getting an estimated $6 million, which, Brannan stressed, will also include money to repave the bike path from the 69th Street Pier to Ceasar’s Bay. The new budget will also include $1 million towards capital financing for in-district affordable senior housing – something Brannan and other advocates have long fought for – as well as $400,000 towards additional sanitation services such as higher volume daily basket pickup. “From day one, my goal has been to make life just a little bit easier for everyone that calls the 43rd District home and I think this budget helps get us there,” Brannan told this paper. “There are extra funds to strengthen our public schools, make our streets and parks cleaner, and to keep our many important local non-profit organizations buzzing.”

MAYOR ANNOUNCES NEW RULES FOR IDNYC ENROLLMENT Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday, August 3 announced updates to the rules governing the city’s IDNYC program which make the municipal identification card more accessible than ever before. Most specifically, the card is now offered to children as young as 10, as opposed to the previous enrollment age of 14. To boot, technological upgrades to the service seek to expand enrollment. More than 1.2 million New Yorkers already have an IDNYC card, something, the de Blasio administration boasts, that unlocks opportunities across the five boroughs and includes even greater benefits than ever before. Those seeking more info on eligibility criteria, benefits and enrollment centers are urged to visit NYC.gov/IDNYC or call 311. There, they will also find a breakdown of the new rules. --Meaghan McGoldrick

Trash Talking: Residents of Four Private Bay Ridge Streets Still Waiting for Court Decision on Garbage Pickups BY HELEN KLEIN HKLEIN@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

I

t’s been a year and a half, and residents on four of Bay Ridge’s private streets are still eagerly awaiting a decision from a New York State Supreme Court judge whether the Department of Sanitation (DSNY) will be required to resume picking up refuse from in front of their homes. As of March 13, 2017, the agency no longer collects rubbish and recycling on Wogan Terrace, which is off 94th Street between Fifth Avenue and Fort Photo courtesy of Bill Larney Hamilton Parkway; Hamilton Walk Trash at the end of one of the affected private streets. and Lafayette Walk, which are perpendicular to 94th Street, between “The city issues summonses if you do that there was “A policy requiring Third and Fourth Avenues; and Bar- that, so how is this not arbitrary and private street homeowners to have well Terrace, which is off 97th Street capricious?” insurance. between Third and Fourth Avenues. “However, no such policy could be The relevant passage in the AdResidents of the four streets were ministrative Code [section 16-120(a)] found,” he said. notified by DSNY in a letter prior to reads, “A person may not use another Collecting trash on the private the cessation of service in front of person’s receptacles without permis- streets had been a long-standing their homes to put their trash and sion, or place his/her refuse in front policy — one that dates back almost recycling on the public sidewalk ad- of a premises other than the building a century — and Sanitation workers would accomplish it by rolling a cart jacent to their block, where it can be in which he/she resides or works.” collected from the public street, a diWhile the city has, in its commu- with a large trash receptacle on it rective that not only was disruptive nications with residents of the four down the streets, emptying hometo them but also to their neighbors, private streets, told them to bring owners’ cans into that. whose homes are adjacent to their their trash out of the private streets “This has gone on since the houses private street. to leave it at the closest point on the were built.

years, having purchased her home from the man who built Barwell Terrace, a Mr. Newman. “‘He told me he built the houses in 1926 only after the Department of Sanitation agreed to pick up the garbage on the sides of the building,’” Clifford is quoted as saying in the article. “It’s an interesting article,” noted Beckmann, who emphasized that it was published “20 years ago, before the issue came to light. It certainly demonstrates that there was a real agreement and substantiates what we knew.” Yet, the residents are waiting still for the judge to announce her decision. “Ninety days are long gone,” Sokoloski said. “Some people have given up. They feel it’s a lost cause.” “I can’t believe this is still going on,” added Councilmember Justin Brannan. “It’s crazy! For the better part of 80 years, the city collected garbage from these private streets without issue or incident, and suddenly now they decide it’s a problem?! It makes absolutely zero sense. The homeowners of Wogan Terrace, Lafayette Walk, Hamilton Walk and Barwell Terrace pay taxes just like everyone else and deserve to have their garbage picked up just the same. I want to get results for the folks who live on these blocks and I am pushing Commissioner [Kathryn] Garcia and the administration to do the right thing and make this right.” Harrison is hopeful that a decision is right around the corner. Telling this paper, “All the evidence favors us,” Harrison emphasized that New York courts are “very busy. It’s not unusual for things to go on. The judge has a lot of cases in front of her. We hope to get a decision soon.” Asked to provide a time frame for the upcoming decision, New York State Unified Court System Spokesperson Lucian Chalfen said, in a statement, “While there is not set time period, judges strive to hand down decisions on arguments in a timely fashion. Most trial court judges and justices have case inventories numbering in the hundreds so this is not an inordinate amount of time for a decision to be rendered.”

Construction Disruption: 86th Street Ramps to Gowanus Will Close for Three Weeks BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A

s if normal congestion and traffic delays along the dreaded Gowanus Expressway aren’t enough, entrance and exit ramps to and from the highway at 86th Street were closed as of Thursday, August 9 for approximately three weeks. The Exit 19 ramp from the Staten Island-bound Gowanus Expressway (I-278) to 86th Street and the entrance ramp from 86th Street to the Manhattan-bound Gowanus Expressway were closed to allow the New York State Department of Transportation to install new deck slabs on the bridge over the Gowanus at 86th Street as part of a $49 million deck replacement project that has already snarled traffic in the area. “This stage of the work will undoubtedly be a pain in the neck, but once we get through this part, we’re almost home,” City Councilmember Justin Brannan told this paper. “Projects like this are tough – nobody wants to deal with it, but the work’s gotta get done.”

Brannan promised that his office will monitor the situation on a daily basis. “We will ensure that the State Department of Transportation is doing everything they can to mitigate and minimize inconvenience to pedestrians and drivers and most importantly keep everyone safe throughout,” Brannan added. District Manager of Community Board 10 Josephine Beckmann also voiced her concerns about the construction disruption. “The impending Gowanus ramp closures will likely bring traffic back-ups and delays for the next three weeks as construction enters the most intricate phase of this rehabilitation project,” Beckmann told this paper. “While there will be traffic agents to help guide traffic, motorists can expect extensive delays in the immediate area.  Residents living closest to the project will also be impacted by construction noise as during this phase of the project, work will be taking place 24 hours per day.” Beckmann strongly recommended

Motorist who normally enter the Manhattan-bound Gowanus at 86th Street should also utilize the 92nd Street access point.

Every effort must be made do this project safely and quickly.” Golden promised that his office will work closely with NY DOT, Community Board 10 and members of the community to assist in addressing all issues that arise from the impending closures.

City Looks to Open Film Production Center at Bush Terminal BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

S

unset Park could become Sunset Boulevard if a plan by the de Blasio administration to turn a portion of Bush Terminal into a film and television production center becomes a reality. The plan took a giant step forward on Aug. 1 with the announcement by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment that the city is seeking a Request for Proposals (RFP) from entities interesting in developing a 200,000-square-foot section of the Made in New York Campus at Bush Terminal into a Hollywood-type of studio for film and television production. Bush Terminal is a complex of manufacturing and industrial buildings located on the Sunset Park waterfront. There are caveats to the RFP process. For one thing, applicants must promise to give at least some of the

jobs to Sunset Park residents. For another, city officials said they will give preference to companies that pledge to advance gender equity, diversity and inclusion within the film, television and media production fields. A new film/television production center is needed, according to Julie Menin, the city’s commissioner of Media and Entertainment. “Film and television production in the five boroughs has been expanding rapidly over the last few years,” she said. The production facility will ensure “that more New Yorkers have access to the well-paying production jobs,” Menin added. The Made in New York Campus is slated to open in 2020. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the establishment of the campus in his 2017 State of the City Address, promising that it would become a thriving spot for manufacturing in the city. The city is investing $136 million to make that happen. The 36-acre campus is located next to Bush Terminal

Piers Park, a recreational facility that opened in 2014. “We’re thrilled to transform Bush Terminal into the first-ever Made in New York Campus. These state-ofthe-art facilities will provide space for TV/film and media production and garment manufacturing,” said NYCEDC President and CEO James Patchett, who predicted that the new facility will “strengthen the local Sunset Park community.” Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen called the new film studio “a new chapter” in the success story of the Made in New York Campus. The RFPs for the film production center are due on Nov. 2. The production center would be located in existing buildings at Bush Terminal, according to officials, who said the buildings are expected to undergo major renovations. Under the city’s plan for Bush Terminal, streetscape improvements will be coming to the area, along with utility upgrades.

Mayor Bill de Blasio, who announced the establishment of a manufacturing hub called the Made in New York Campus at Bush Terminal last year, is planning to expand the center to include a film production center.

“The Sunset Park waterfront stands as one of the neighborhood’s and the city’s most vital resources,” said Sunset Park Councilmember Carlos Menchaca. Those interested in taking a tour of the site can attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, Aug. 15, at Bush Terminal, 58 50th St., at 10 a.m. For more information in the RFP process, visit https://bit.ly/2Ozly53.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Fort Hamilton Army Base Protects and Defines Our Growing Neighborhoods Now in its Third Century, Historic Fort Welcomes New Commander

Every now and then, some hit-hungry blogger will scream, “It’s time to close Fort Hamilton!” The fort got “bad press” following the arrest of an undocumented immigrant who was trying to make a legitimate pizza delivery to the fort. Shame on ICE and shame on those who would convert this nation into a racist fortress. But there’s no shame for the U.S. Military personnel who have proudly served at this historic installation for more than 200 years. It was news recently — and appropriately so — when ceremonies were held there noting the departure of outgoing Commander

Col. Peter Sicoli and the arrival of his successor, Col. Andrew Zieseniss.

Fort Hamilton’s Key Role In Growth of Bay Ridge What folks who live on the internet may not know is that Fort Hamilton — by its positive and, yes, patriotic interactions with contiguous communities such as Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights for so many decades — has had a strong influence in adding to the stability of what we refer to as Greater Bay Ridge. Many here were shock-

Outgoing Commanding Officer Col. Peter Sicoli (left) receives a legislative resolution from state Sen. Marty Golden. ebrooklyn media/Photos by Arthur De Gaeta ed and disappointed when Fort Hamilton effectively closed its doors following the terror attacks of 2001. Visiting the fort and romping over its battlements was a special treat for kids growing up here. Visits by children are now common and the fort even hosts a swimming pool club located in what was formerly called the

Officers Club. In addition, for the last 20 years, concerned citizens here have joined together in a support group called the Fort Hamilton Citizens Action Committee. Members are local leaders who are dedicated to protecting the fort from closure. In the wake of 9/11, the Pentagon seems to have given up on efforts to shut down the fort, perhaps keeping in mind that hundreds of people here rallied to the fort’s cause — even in the years before 9/11.

Mayor Bloomberg Cited Critical Role of Military Base A few years into his first administration, when announcing construction of better housing for its personnel, Mayor Mike Bloomberg came to Bay Ridge to emphasize the importance of the historic fort. “Since Sept. 11, Fort Hamilton has assumed a greater role, as it is the city’s only active military base,” Bloomberg said. “There are a number of National Guard and Army regiments located here that are responsible for safety and security throughout the city, and providing affordable quality housing to all New Yorkers is a priority of this administration and today demonstrates that commitment.” Then-Borough President Marty Markowitz mirrored the mayor’s remarks. “Fort Hamilton has served and protected the citizens of Brooklyn and New York City for almost 200 years, and today, in these challenging times, we continue to place our trust and confidence in their bravery and dedication,” Markowitz said. “So, to our future uniformed Brooklynites of Fort Hamilton’s family housing — Brooklyn will always be your home and we are proud to have you as our neighbor.”

State Sen. Marty Golden shakes hands with incoming Fort Hamilton Army Base Commander Col. Andrew S. Zieseniss (also pictured, inset) as Captain Robert Conwell of the 68th Precinct looks on.

Columnist’s Note: Even those who live in Bay Ridge may not have connected the community’s ongoing quality of life with the presence of the Fort Hamilton Army Base. How has Fort Hamilton served as a steadying influence here as we’ve progressed from a village to one of the safest and most child-friendly neighborhoods in the city? Good question. Stay tuned.

Christ Church Bay Ridge Welcomes New Pastor BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

decorated cake that read “Welcome Father DeLion” in sprawling cursive letters sat on the table in front of the newly appointed pastor. He calmly smiled at the reception as the congregation at Christ Church Bay Ridge finally welcomed the new addition to their church early Sunday morning on July 22. Father Lawrence DeLion, who had previously served at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Smithtown, New York, arrived at the church just about two months after the sudden death of Father Tracey Williams in May. Williams had been at Christ Church pinch-hitting for the church’s previous pastor, Reverend Father Joel Ireland, who was forced to retire in 2017 because of health issues. DeLion is the

Father Lawrence DeLion was welcomed as the new pastor at Christ Church Bay Ridge. church’s first permanent pastor in four years. Although DeLion hasn’t officially moved to Bay Ridge yet, he has been driving down for services and to

minister to the church’s needs since last month. “He’s a people person,” said Sexton Todd Shultz, the official church caretaker for the past 30 years. “We’ve had a pretty good crowd for services because everyone’s interested.” Shultz noted that with many people leaving for summer vacations and

churches getting smaller all the time, it’s good to see someone pull the congregation together. The congregation of today was formed in 2014 when Christ Church merged with St. John’s Fort Hamilton parish, but the church itself has been planted on 73rd and Ridge Blvd for over a century.

The event takes place, each year, on the first Tuesday in August — August 7, this year — a celebration of cooperation between community residents and the cops who keep them safe, and this year was no exception. However, Mother Nature, it seemed, had other plans. As the sun sank in the sky over the Narrows, adults strolled along enjoying freshly grilled corn on the cob and hotdogs. Some attendees camped out in their beach chairs, with a stellar view of the performance area.

“Give Back Day” Held at Sunset Park Middle School BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

t I.S. 136 Charles Dewey School, on Thursday, July 26, 30 employees for the company behind the Brooklyn Nets helped school staff set up classrooms by cleaning out supply closets, and relocating chairs and desks throughout the building.

They removed old science books from the basement of the school, and helped ship those books to foreign schools and students in need. The volunteers also painted classrooms in preparation of the new school year. The volunteers work for BSE Global, an Industry City-based company which owns and operates various sports teams like the Brooklyn Nets

and NHL’s New York Islanders. In total, the organization enlisted over 250 of its employees to participate in its local “Give Back Day.” “BSE Global selected 11 volunteer sites this year, the majority of which, like I.S. 136, were located in Sunset Park,” said BSEG Vice President of Communications Mandy Gutmann in an email. “We recently opened our

new headquarters in Sunset Park’s Industry City, so we wanted to focus our efforts around those in need right in our backyard.” BSE Global closed its offices for the day, and sent employees across Brooklyn and Long Island to help prepare meals for food banks, assist with school programs and clean up neighborhood parks.

Saturday Park Slope Summer Stroll Continues By John Alexander INBrooklyn

It was a very nice turnout as crowds gathered to walk along Fifth from 12th to 18th streets and enjoy a variety of activities along the way. While last week’s event ended early due to the weather, this week’s stroll, sponsored by the Park Slope Fifth Avenue Business Improvement District, was packed from beginning to end. Activities included bouncy rides for children at 12th and 13th streets. Crunch Gym demonstrated kickboxing for kids and there was yoga and stick aerobics for adults along streets lined with artificial turf. Also, the legendary Bubble Guy formed giant bubbles as he entertained crowds of kids. Highlights along the stroll route were the South Brooklyn Shakespeare Company’s performance of Shakespeare’s “The Winter’s Tale” and a display of vintage cars along Fifth Avenue. There was outdoor seating at select restaurants and live music. The Paprika Marching Band performed, clowns entertained kids by spinning plates, and checkers, chess and Jenga tables were set up. And in a show of community spirit, cops from the 78th Precinct played bean toss with the strollers. There were prizes for those who spun the wheel at the YMCA table and, all in all, it was a memorable stroll for everyone who attended. Upcoming events include the North Slope Stroll 1 on Aug. 11 from 5-9 p.m. with a salsa dance party and silent disco and the North Slope Stroll 2 on Aug. 18 from 5-8 p.m. featuring A stroller spins for prizes at the YMCA the Artichoke Pizza eating contest. table.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Park Slope welcoming Premier By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

Play Nice Theatre has begun its season of lighthearted musicals with positive, life-affirming messages about cooperation and kindness. And they’re looking for their July/August cast, musicians, and backstage helpers. Relocated from Manhattan, this all-volunteer company’s rehearsals and meetings reflect their mission and message by encouraging its mixed-generation cast and crew (ages 6 to 106) to interact socially and share stories of their own lives on and off stage. In a welcoming atmosphere, the experienced and new Play Nice actors and crew are encouraged to come early and linger after assigned rehearsal slots in order to get to know each other, help each other memorize their lines, do school homework and play games. Some may choose to help with scenery painting or prop-making. All ticket sales from main stage shows ($10 admission) is donated to local charities, a prime motivation for many participants who find it rewarding to help raise money for those less fortunate through donating their time and talent. According to theatre founder Rob Lester, the cast and crew are like a second family. “Working on a show with

friendly people is fun and satisfying,” he says. The Brooklyn Eagle stopped by the new location at 89 Fourth Avenue, five blocks from Barclays Center, where the two-act musical “The Three Little Pigs Buy a Brownstone in Brooklyn” is running on weekends (2 p.m. Saturdays, 3:30 p.m. Sundays, through July 1). The Eagle is mentioned prominently in the Brooklyn-centric script in Scene 6 and the newspaper is used as a prop as well. The show’s target audience is ages six and up, with plenty of humor adults will appreciate. “Two six-year-olds are among the actors, with the oldest member more than ten times their age, and the family idea is reflected literally: the cast includes two brothers who play two of the pigs; a mother and her son have a scene together as an older pig

and hedgehog; two actors are cousins,” we’re informed. Original lyrics are set to public domain melodies including old folk songs and classic children’s tunes. The show, which emphasizes “being a good neighbor,” plus patience, perseverance, and pig puns runs through July 1, will be followed by show after show, starting with the summer musical about kids and counselors at an unusual summer camp, titled “Not a Happy Camper.” The theatre welcomes audition appointments, visits, donations of costumes and supplies, and all inquiries throughout the year. Acting classes, puppet shows, concerts, one-day free workshops, variety shows, and special family events are planned and a fundraising concert on July 20. For more details, show times, tickets, and contact information, go to www.PlayNicePeople. com.

B’klyn DA: Low-Level Marijuana Prosecutions 91 Percent FACESDown BEHIND By Rob Abruzzese INBrooklyn

The mayor and the police commissioner announced in June that the city will have a new policy when it comes to marijuana arrests, but Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez has attempted to lead the way on the issue. His office announced on Friday that low-level marijuana prosecutions have dropped by more than 91 percent between January and June of this year. Gonzalez said that due to the success of the new policy the Brooklyn DA’s Office will continue to decline to prosecute most marijuana cases. “Aggressive enforcement and prosecution of personal possession and use of marijuana does not keep us safer, and the glaring racial disparities in who is and is not arrested have contributed to a sense among many in our communities that the system is unfair,” Gonzalez said. “This in turn contributes to a lack of trust in law enforcement, which makes us all less safe. “That is why, earlier this year, we expanded our existing non-prosecution policy to include smoking cases,” he continued. “That pilot policy proved to be effective in dramatically reducing the number of low-level marijuana cases processed in court, freeing resources and strengthening trust in the justice system. I intend to maintain thisTurkish approach and to• 1 (800) 874-8875 Airlines only prosecute the most egregious Turkish Airlines makes travel dreams come true.

Taken together, the number of cases that were accepted for prosecution this year declined from 349 in January to 29 in June — a drop of 91.6 percent. Of the cases that were prosecuted between January and June 2018, 84 percent resulted in a dismissal (by either an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal or by other means), according to the Brooklyn DA's Office.

New York–based Chilean artist and poet Cecilia Vicuña has devoted a significant part of her artistic practice to studying, interpreting, and reactivating the quipus, which were banned by the Spanish during their colonization of South America. Drawing on her indigenous heritage, Vicuña channels this ancient, sensorial mode

The exhibit includes such luminaries as Winsor McCay, Will Eisner, Bill Griffith, Roz Chast, Ronald Wimberly and Julia Wertz whose

work demonstrates the influence that mass transit has on the stories that are irrevocably woven into the cultural fabric of New York City.

Advertorial D.A.N.N.Y. Inc. to host Dare To Care Day for anti-bullying Maureen Fitzpatrick, mother of 13-year-Danny who committed suicide due to excessive bullying on August 11, 2016, has founded D.A.N.N.Y Inc., a non-profit organization to raise awareness to bullying and will be hosting another event in Danny’s name. On Saturday, August 18, D.A.N.N.Y. INC. will host Dare To Care Day, a charity softball/carnival event at Mid Island Babe Ruth League Ballfield, 1322 Travis Avenue in Staten Island, starting at 11 a.m. “It’s emotional for me because I created this for Danny to honor his life and the idea behind this foundation is to hopefully help educate people about bullying and suicide prevention, what bullying can do, and show people that bullying does affect a person to the point that they will be suicidal like it did to my son, and that it does happen more often than we think in this country,” said Fitzpatrick. “It’s more about raising awareness and promoting kindness. We all have to treat each other well, be respectful, take accountability, understand and be more empathetic to one another.” That idea, Fitzpatrick said, and the founding of D.A.N.N.Y Inc. is based on the “true essence of who Danny was” – a kind soul and an even brighter light.

HOROSCOPES August 9 - August 15, 2018 ♋ CANCER  Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, it is very easy to get wrapped up in the problems of others. But sometimes you have to let others work things out on their own. Offer advice if it is sought. ♌ LEO  Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, behind the big lionХs roar beats the heart of a pussy cat. Your sensitive side is bound to come through this week, when you may provide comfort to a person in need. ♍ VIRGO  Aug 24/Sept 22 What you show to the public may not be the true Virgo you keep close to yourself. Let a few intimate details sneak out, and you may be surprised at the reactions. ♎ LIBRA  Sept 23/Oct 23 This is a prime time to nurture business relationships that could push your employment career into a new direction, Libra. There are many possibilities at your disposal. ♏ SCORPIO  Oct 24/Nov 22 It can be difficult for your detailed-oriented self to draw the line at what to include in a task and what to leave out. You strive for perfection in all you do, Scorpio. ♐ SAGITTARIUS  Nov 23/Dec 21 You are wondering if you should play it safe or dance closer to the edge this week, Sagittarius. It may be because you are feeling trapped by routine. Change can be good. ♑ CAPRICORN  Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you want to be there for all the people who may need your assistance. But avoid stretching yourself too thin so you can approach each situation energetically. ♒ AQUARIUS  Jan 21/Feb 18 Choose your battles, Aquarius. There are not enough hours in the day to be an activist for every cause. Only select the ones that you truly feel strongly about. ♓ PISCES  Feb 19/Mar 20 Try not to record every moment on social media, Pisces. ItХs good to leave an aura of mystery from time to time and enjoy the moments. ♈ ARIES  Mar 21/Apr 20 It can be challenging to silence your suspicious mind, Aries. Not everyone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Avoid gossip whenever possible, and youХll be fine. ♉ TAURUS  Apr 21/May 21 Wear your heart on your sleeve, Taurus. Doing so may endear you to others. It may seem like youХre putting all your cards on the table, but youХre showing youХre genuine. ♊ GEMINI  May 22/Jun 21 Toning things down is not necessarily your style, Gemini. But this week you may want to keep a few details to yourself. Maintain a low profile for the next few days.

Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten is the Place to Go This Summer BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

W

hen the Brooklyn Bavarian Biergarten first opened, there was great anticipation that it would be a unique new addition to the borough’s summer landscape. After all, it was the brainchild of the folks behind the Grand Prospect Hall, one of the finest event venues in Brooklyn.

Well, it did not disappoint! The Bavarian Biergarten caught on quickly and has become a staple in the neighborhood. It’s open rain or shine on weekends and there’s a large selection of imported beers to help wash down the delicious traditional German and American cuisine. And that’s not all, the venue also serves

Come See Tiny Streets Near Bay Ridge’s 69th Street Pier By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Everybody in Bay Ridge loves the 69th Street Pier, with its excellent views of Lower Manhattan skyscrapers and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Now that the NYC Ferry stops at the pier, it's especially popular. When you visit the American Veterans Memorial Pier, as it's officially called, there's an interesting walk to take afterwards. Head up 69th Street — or Bay Ridge Avenue, which is what the street signs say. You'll find several singleblock streets, all picturesque and peaceful. Start at Madeline Court, the street that's furthest from the pier. This cul-de-sac is on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue. To find Madeline Court's entrance, walk up the avenue and around the corner to 68th Street. Madeline Court is lined with red-brick Tudor-style rowhouses built in the 1940s. They are decorated with timber and have slate roofs. To give you an idea of what the homes are worth, last year 6821 Madeline Court sold for $890,000, city Finance Department records show.

Here’s a close-up look at Madeline Court rowhouses near the corner of 68th Street.

Come See Cul-de-Sacs by the Bay Ridge Shoreline By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

In about 10 seconds you'll see two brick houses with a short staircase between them. The stairs lead to a landscaped central garden with walkways on either side. This pedestrianonly cul-de-sac is called Colonial Gardens. It's secluded and very nifty. The house at 10 Colonial Gardens is for sale at an asking price of $1.165 million, a posting by listing agent Anthony Mussolino of Ben Bay Realty says. It's got three bedrooms and a garage. The last time this house changed hands, which was 2011, it sold for $650,000, Finance Department records indicate. On one side of the entrance to Colonial Gardens, a standalone house whose address is 8915 Narrows Ave. is under renovation by new owners. They bought the house for $1.43 million in December, Finance Department records show. • If you step over to Shore Road — which runs into Narrows Avenue right beside Colonial Gardens — and walk until you cross 86th Street, you will find Shore Road Lane. It's a paved cul-de-sac that runs beside Fort Hamilton High School. There's a handful of big, beautiful suburban houses on the lane.

You can live by the shoreline AND have a Tudor house with cobblestones outside your front door. That's a dreamy combo, as far as we're concerned. We're talking about Shore Court, a Bay Ridge cul-de-sac off 89th Street. It's oh-so-close to Shore Road, with its views of New York Harbor. And Shore Court is one of the only streets in the neighborhood that is paved with Belgian blocks, as cobblestones are officially called. The semi-detached houses on this dandy dead-end street are half-stucco, half-brick, with timber decorations and steep roofs. This time of year, roses are growing in many of the front gardens. To give you an idea of what the houses are worth, 8902 Shore Court sold for $1.11 million in October, city Finance Department records show. The house has a large side yard because it's on a corner lot. As an indication of how prices have appreciated over the years, 8924 Shore Court sold for $869,000 in 2009, Finance Department records show. Two other mini-streets nearby also hug the shoreline: * When you leave Shore Court, walk down 89th Street to Narrows Avenue and turn south. ABOVE: Welcome to Shore Court, one of Bay Ridge's most beautiful cul-de-sacs.

A fine summer sky brightens this view of the terrific Tudors on Bay Cliff Terrace.

Cobblestones on Bay Ridge Place

After you see Madeline Court, walk back to 69th Street — aka Bay Ridge Avenue — to find the entrance to Bay Ridge Place. It, too, is located between Ridge Boulevard and Third Avenue. There are cobblestones on Bay Ridge Place — and creamy-hued, barrel-shaped rowhouses that are a century old. It's a full-block street, not a dead-end, that runs from 69th Street to Ovington Avenue. You should also see three other tiny streets near the 69th Street Pier: • Bay Cliff Terrace is a dead-end street with its sole entrance on 68th Street on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Colonial Road. It is lined with terrific brick Tudor rowhouses, some with colorful decorative accents. • On the block between Colonial Road and Narrows Avenue, there's a single-block street called Bliss Terrace. It runs between 68th Street — which serves as a border of Owl's Head Park at this point — and 69th Street. The park was originally industrialist Eliphalet W. Bliss's estate. He bequeathed the property to the city. Bliss Terrace is named after him. Many of the street's handsome brick rowhouses have lovely front gardens. To give you an idea of what the homes are worth, 6825 Bliss Terrace sold for $1.1 million in February 2017, Finance Department records indicate. And 6806 Bliss Terrace sold for $729,000 in a November 2015 estate sale, Finance Department records show. • Owls Head Court is located between Narrows Avenue and Shore Road, just a block away from the entrance to the 69th Street Pier. That's not a typo. The city Buildings Department and Finance Department do not use an apostrophe in the word “Owls” when referring to this street. Owls Head Court, which is lined with small, low-rise brick apartment buildings, runs between the 68th Street border of Owl's Head Park and 69th Street.

The handsome house in the foreground of this photo is 6655 Sedgwick Place.

The nifty old-fashioned house in the foreground is 6660 Sedgwick Place. By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Up at the northern edge of Bay Ridge, two single-block streets that stand side by side bear the names of distinguished area residents of the 19th century. They are Bergen Place and Sedgwick Place, which both run between 67th Street and Wakeman Place on the block between Ridge Boulevard and Colonial Road.

Come See Victorian Houses on Bergen Place and Sedgwick Place

Bergen Place is named after Teunis Bergen, according to the helpful book “Brooklyn by Name” by Leonard Benardo and Jennifer Weiss. Bergen, who lived from 1806 to 1881, was a farmer and surveyor who served one term in the United States Congress from 1865 to 1867. Before that, his varied political and civic responsibilities had included the position of supervisor of the town of New Utrecht, of which Bay Ridge was a part. Back in those days, Bay Ridge was called Yellow Hook — a name that lost its appeal because of yellow fever epidemics. While Bergen was New Utrecht's town supervisor, he presided over an 1853 meeting where a resolution to change Yellow Hook's name to Bay Ridge was passed, Ted General notes in a comment posted on the website Hey Ridge. A Hey Ridge story about Bergen says he co-founded the Long Island Historical Society, which today is known as the Brooklyn Historical Society. Bergen is buried in Green-Wood Cemetery.

Million-Dollar Homes on a Peaceful Street

Long may it wave — at 6663 Sedgwick Place.

Bergen Place is charming and peaceful, with a mix of homes constructed during different eras. Our favorite property on the street is a gigantic, fenced-in Victorian mansion on the corner of Wakeman Place that's divided down the middle into two homes. Window bays on each home have pointy roofs that look like witches' hats. The home that's closer to Wakeman Place is 6635 Bergen Place. The home that's further away is 6637 Bergen Place. Another picturesque, old-fashioned house stands on a hill and has a graceful lawn with terrific trees. Its address is 6640 Bergen Place. To give you an idea of what properties on this street are worth, city Finance Department records indicate that 6641 Bergen Place sold for $1.365 million in April.

A Shout-Out to Theodore Sedgwick

This eye-pleasing Victorian property is divided into two homes, whose addresses are 6635 Bergen Place at left and 6637 Bergen INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan Place at right.

Sedgwick Place is named after a family of area landowners, among them Theodore Sedgwick, who was a co-founder of Bay Ridge's Christ Church in the 1850s, the book “Brooklyn by Name” says. We're especially charmed by two big, eye-catching old homes that stand side by side on sloping lawns in the middle of the block. One of them is mustard-yellow 6655 Sedgwick Place, which has a wrap-around porch. A historic note: A deed we found on the Finance Department's website describes this property as having belonged to the estate of Theodore Sedgwick and having been sold in 1887 so the proceeds could be distributed to his heirs. The other house stands next door at 6663 Sedgwick Place. It's a classic Victorian, and has a turret with a witches' hat roof. A deed in the Finance Department's online records also identifies this property as having been included in Sedgwick's 1887 estate sale.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN From the Brooklyn Eagle Of August 16, 1909

Thunderstorm Bolsters Mood of Praising God Through Song

New Assumption Church Building Is Dedicated

Paul Richard Olson accompanies on piano as the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, the new rector of Grace Church, leads the group in a variety of his favorite hymns. INBrooklyn photo by Francesca N. Tate

The Brooklyn Eagle published a section on the dedication of the new Church of the Assumption on Cranberry St. The Roman Catholic parish had been founded in 1842. The Brooklyn Eagle reported the dedication of Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church, which took place on the parish’s patronal feast day of Aug. 15. The Assumption commemorates a Mystery of the Catholic Church (and of the Rosary) that the body of the Virgin Mary—mother of Jesus—was deemed too holy to decay and was carried into heaven. Brooklyn Diocesan Bishop Charles Edward McDonnell, who had laid the foundation of the church the previous December, presided at the dedication High Mass, with the Rev. J.F. Mealia as celebrant. “The dedicatory sermon was delivered by the Rev. William T. McGuirl, who paid a high tribute to the successful efforts of the pastor of the church, the Rev. Dr. William J. Donaldson. The interior decorations are light, with the exception of the woodwork, which is of dark oak. The walls are decorated in light colors, with gold bands. The sanctuary rail is of white and gold, and the large altar is of white marble. The organ is already in place in the loft at the entrance of the edifice. All of the windows are of stained glass and were made in Germany from special designs. The exterior of the church is of light pressed brick, terra cotta trimmings and of Italian Renaissance style. There are towers at either side of the entrance rising to a height of 124 feet. The church has a frontage of 66 feet and is 446 feet in depth. The seating capacity is one thousand. The basement, formerly used for worship, will now be utilized as a parish hall. Erected in connection with the church is a parish house for the accommodation of the clergy, and a parochial school will be ready soon. After the dedication exercises, clergymen and others taking active part in the ceremonies were the guests of the pastor of the church at dinner in the Hotel St. George. Solemn vespers were sung in the evening at half-past seven o’clock. The Rev. Edward McCue, rector at St. Joseph’s Church, Kensington, NY, officiated.”

Lord of all Creation — 2. Thor, the Norse god of thunder and lightning — 1. Over the millennia, a wealth of songs and melodies have been created, in all kinds of situations, to praise God. On Tuesday night, August 7, a group of robust hymn-lovers from several Brooklyn congregations could be heard singing David N. Johnson’s danceable “Earth and All Stars,” while an electrical storm raged outdoors. The evening’s presenter, the Rev. Dr. Allen Robinson, rector of Grace Church, even led the group in singing the beloved Christmas carol, “O Come All Ye Faithful”—perhaps as a way to cool down during the latest heat wave. The August Tuesday Hymn Sing series, which became a tradition in 2004, explores the wide treasury of hymnody from the Episcopal/Anglican tradition

as well as spirituals and new works. Next week’s presenter (Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 7 p.m.) is Pam McAllister, a church organist since age 15, music director of the Park Slope United Methodist Church, and a frequent participant in the popular Summer Sings at Grace Church Brooklyn Heights. McAllister currently blogs at “Ask Her About Hymn(s)” http://askherabouthymn. com. McAllister is a member of the Hymn Society of the United States and Canada and the American Guild of Organists-Brooklyn Chapter. She is also the author of nine published books (subjects include Shakespeare, Mark Twain, feminism, nonviolence and more). She has also written columns about sacred congregational song for two magazines: The Progressive Christian and The Hymn.

Several FPWA Scholarship Winners Hail From Brooklyn

Several of the 14 winners of this year’s FPWA scholarships are from Brooklyn or attend colleges in the borough.

Photo courtesy of the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies

The Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies (FPWA) presented 14 college students with a $2,000 scholarship at its 2018 College Scholarship awards breakfast held recently in Lower Manhattan. Several of this year’s recipients are Brooklynites—drawn from a pool of New York residents—who are in their junior and senior year of college, and were recommended for the scholarship by FPWA’s network of community-based member agencies. Students were selected for their individual abilities to excel despite challenging circumstances and have demonstrated a strong commitment to furthering their education. The Brooklyn winners include Megan Soto, Sarah Slater, Tiara Simons, Jermaine Meadows, Jermani Faulk and Noeimie Desir. Soto, a Brooklyn College senior, said, “My dream job in life is to become a speech pathologist down the line. Right now, I am a communications major and I want to be successful, and help

children and people who are struggling.” Soto was recommended for the scholarship by Goddard Riverside Community Center. Faulk, a senior at Binghamton University, said, “My education is the most important thing to me in my life right now...this scholarship will allow a kid out of East New York, who never knew he would be in college in the first place, to be the first in his family to obtain a bachelor’s degree.” A political science major, Faulk and Meadows, another first-generation college student and physical education major, were recommended for the scholarship by Cypress Hills LDC. The FPWA college scholarships are funded by the New York Times Neediest Cases. FPWA is an anti-poverty policy and advocacy organization committed to economic opportunity and upward mobility. It has had a prominent New York presence for nearly 100 years.

Third Summer Stroll Another Success BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

T

he third time was the charm. After an afternoon in which the skies opened, and torrents ensued, the rain subsided and weather finally cooperated for Third Avenue’s third Summer Stroll. Held on Friday, August 3 from 68th to 80th Streets, the event once again highlighted local businesses, as strollers enjoyed the opportunity to eat outdoors and take in live entertainment. “I think the Summer Stroll gods were looking kindly upon us,” said Third Avenue Merchants President Bob Howe. “ It took people a little bit of time to get back into Summer Stroll mode but by about 7 or 8 p.m., the avenue was filled and people were happy, enjoying their neighborhood, grandchildren and children, and the fact that they could enjoy their neighborhood.” A week earlier, on Friday, July 27, the Bay Ridge Fifth Avenue BID’s first F.A.C.E. of Fifth Weekend Walk was a washout so the fine night was more than welcome. “Most of the entertainment emanates from restaurants, hiring musicians to play outside their place, so their is probably a dozen bands or deejays or singers, and I think people enjoyed both the quiet and noisy part of the Stroll,” Howe said. This marked the third of four strolls on Third, and Howe and company understand that the summer tradition is almost wrapped up for another year. “It does go by fast,” Howe admitted. “However, a lot of planning goes into it and come January 2, we will start planning again because it has become a Bay Ridge institution and people want it, expect it and love it.

A balancing act on Third.

Al fresco dining was part of the fun.

It’s not that all good things come to an end; they get adjourned for 12 months.” Howe briefly addressed some online posts suggesting that this past stroll had become too political. “I only saw a few blurbs, but to me I walked up and down the avenue many times and the majority of the stuff going on on the avenue was people enjoying Bay Ridge in a car-free environment,” he

Its twofold purpose is to create a block party for Bay Ridge residents, and allow merchants to do extra business during what is sometimes a slow time. We ask participants and everyone on the avenue to be respectful of the two goals.” He opined that political demonstrations may be, “Best left for another time and day.” The final Summer Stroll will be held on Friday, August 10 and will span from 80th to 90th Streets beginning at 6:30 p.m. Friday, August 17, will mark the second FACE of 5th weekend walk on Fifth Avenue from 73rd to 83rd Streets, running from 5 to 10 p.m.

Bensonhurst Chinese Community Center Hosts IDNYC Pop-Up Site BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he de Blasio administration’s IDNYC initiative, the three-year-old program that provides photo identification cards to New Yorkers to use as an official government-issued ID, has had an added bonus, according to Asian-American leaders and elected officials in Bensonhurst, who said the cards have also helped immigrants become part of the city’s fabric. “It is very important that people participate in programs like this. It is a great assistance to help you and your families feel more welcome and part of the city,” Assemblymember William Colton told a group of Asian residents who had gathered in the offices of the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn for the opening of a new pop-up center for IDNYC on Aug. 1. Residents can visit the association’s office at 1787 Stillwell Ave., Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Aug. 17 to apply for an IDNYC card. The card is later mailed to the resident. The city operates 20 permanent locations where New Yorkers can apply for the ID cards. The main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library at Grand

Assemblymember William Colton (seated third from left) and his community relations director Nancy Tong (seated fourth from left) joined officials from the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and leaders of the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn to help launch the pop-up IDNYC site.

Stephanie Wong told the group. Army Plaza is one such site. But the city also opens pop-up “IDNYC’s mission is to unlock more IDNYC centers in local neighbor- opportunities for New Yorkers.

homeless, and other New Yorkers who might have trouble securing more traditional types of government-issued ID. The cards also offer 12-month free memberships to dozens of the city’s museums and cultural institutions. The cards can be used as library cards in the Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library and Queens Public Library systems. Eileen Arias, director of intergovernmental affairs for the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs, came to the opening of the pop-up center and talked about the success of the IDNYC effort. “New Yorkers understand the importance of IDNYC,” Arias said, adding that 1.2 million people have signed up to date. And at least half of all IDNYC card holders use it as their primary form of identification, Arias said. Nancy Tong, community relations director in Colton’s office, said the IDNYC cards come in handy. Immigrants who have the cards no longer have to bring their passports or green cards with them to do their banking, she said.

Tony Avella said they will fight to keep the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) intact but will seek to open up the admissions process to more minority students by requiring middle schools to do a better job of helping students prepare for the big test. Their legislation would require every elementary and middle school to have at least one class on each grade level comprised of the top performing students based on academic achievement. Under their plan, the classes would include test prep for the SHSAT. "This is all designed to give our kids a better education so they can pass the test," Avella, a Queens Democrat, told

NY 1 at a recent rally at City Hall. Another Queens lawmaker, Councilmember Robert Holden, also a Democrat, attended the rally and said he would introduce a City Council resolution to expand programs in schools for gifted and talented students. There are eight high schools that base their admissions solely on the SHSAT: Bronx High School of Science; Brooklyn Latin School; Brooklyn Technical High School; High School for Mathematics, Science and Engineering at the City College of New York; High School of American Studies at Lehman College; Queens High School for the Sciences at York College; Staten Island Technical High School; and Stuyvesant High School. “With proper education, preparation and support, every student would be equally able to sit for the SHSAT and determine their eligibility for specialized schools,” said Colton, a Democrat who represents Gravesend and portions of Bensonhurst. In an effort to bring more racial diversity in the top high schools, de Blasio has proposed eliminating the SHSAT

as the sole standard for admission and replacing it with a system in which elite high schools would be required to reserve a certain number of seats for the top performers from each middle school. The proposal would need state legislation to implement. A new, more open process would give African-Americans, Latinos and other minority students a better chance of gaining admission, supporters of the mayor’s plan said. But Asian-American leaders in Brooklyn and Queens argued that many of the students getting into schools like Brooklyn Technical High School and Stuyvesant High School are Asian-American and that they gain admission by working hard. Changing the system would be unfair to them, opponents of the mayor’s proposal have charged. Colton, whose Assembly district has large numbers of Asians, formed a group called the South Brooklyn Coalition for Quality Education to fight to preserve the SHSAT. The solution is not to scrap the test but to help students in earlier grades,

according to Colton. “The school system needs to identify them early and provide them with the resources and programs which will develop their talents and equip them with the tools to pass the SHSAT. Changing the admission standards for specialized schools instead of investing in gifted and talented programs to serve all children, in all neighborhoods, is misdirected and a sad disservice to all parents and their children,” Colton said. Jaclyn Rothenberg, a spokesperson for de Blasio, said the mayor isn’t backing down. But she added that city is already doing much of what Colton and Avella are suggesting. “We’re laser-focused on making specialized high school admissions fairer for all New Yorkers, and we’re confident that getting rid of this arbitrary test will strengthen our schools. Through our broader Equity and Excellence for All agenda, we’re investing in high-quality elementary and middle schools, and we’ve added gifted and talented classes so that there is an option in every district,” Rothenberg told this newspaper in an email.

“He was just such an amazing individual,” said DanceWorks company owner Lisa Mara about dancer and friend Gerald Obah, whose remarkable life was cut short in the early morning hours of Thursday, July 12, by a fatal car accident on the Belt Parkway. “When something like this happens, people want to give back. That’s who he was, someone that inspires. That’s how the GoFundMe page came about.” After the accident that took Obah’s life, colleagues, family and friends launched a GoFundMe page dedicated to the dancer’s memory and dance career called the Gerald Obah Legacy Fund. With donations pouring in, the page hit and surpassed the goal of $20,000 aimed at covering funeral costs. Mara and DanceWorks Director Betsy Moran set up the page for all the dancers, family and friends of Obah who had reached out to ask how they could help honor him. Aleh Sheipak, 50, the driver of

Kings Highway Gets Royal Treatment from Cleanup Volunteers BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

T

he sidewalks and curbs along Kings Highway have a whole new look these days, thanks to a group of local students who took part in a recent community cleanup day organized by a local lawmaker. Assemblymember William Colton, a Democrat who represents portions of Gravesend and Bensonhurst, and his community relations director, Nancy Tong, who is also the female Democratic district leader in the 47th Assembly District, asked high school and college students to spend a day helping them sweep away litter and clean catch basins on Kings Highway between Bay Parkway and McDonald Avenue. Colton, Tong and Charles Ragusa, male Democratic district leader in the 47th A.D., have been organizing community litter sweeps called “Speak-Up & Clean-Up” events, for eight years. The neighborhood spruce-up efforts take place several times a year. The target areas have included Bay Parkway, 86th Street and 18th Avenue. Councilmember Mark Treyger, a Democrat who also represents

Assemblymember William Colton and Community Relations Director Nancy Tong organized the team of cleanup volunteers. Gravesend and Bensonhurst, as well as Coney Island, Bath Beach and Sea Gate, and Priscilla Consolo, a Gravesend civic leader, also helped to get the “Speak-Up & Clean-Up” program off the ground. The idea is to sweep the sidewalks and then encourage homeowners to keep the sidewalks clean from then on, according to Colton.

The volunteers hand out fliers to residents detailing the importance of keeping public spaces clean. The fliers, which are printed in multiple languages, inform residents about city rules on litter and household trash. “Cleaner streets mean a better quality of life for all residents and business owners in the area,” Colton said. The cleanups are conducted

partially to augment city sanitation services, according to Colton, who said the Department of Sanitation can’t be everywhere at once. “Often the Department of Sanitation and local business owners are on tight budgets and unable to provide the necessary personnel to properly clean all of the catch basins and sidewalks,” Colton said.

Company that Owns Truck Involved in Fatal Accident on Gowanus No Stranger to Violations BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK MMCGOLDRICK@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A

64-year-old NYPD maintenance worker was killed in an accident on the Gowanus Expressway Wednesday, August 1 that officials are saying could – and should have – been prevented. According to authorities, the victim, Robert Martinez, was traveling eastbound in the expressway’s HOV lane near Third Avenue in a 2003 Chevy Tracker when, at around 6:30 a.m., a rear passenger side tire came unhinged from a 2009 Mack garbage truck traveling westbound. The tire crossed over the center median, and struck and shattered the windshield of the Chevy, fatally injuring Martinez, a civilian employee

of the NYPD. The 46-year-old operator of the garbage truck and its passenger, a 27-year-old man, remained at the scene. While the investigation is still ongoing, there has been no shortage of criticism of the company that owns the truck. Locally, Councilmember Justin Brannan was quick to condemn its operator, Century Waste Services, a New Jersey company, he says, that has a long history of loose wheels, failed inspections, reckless drivers and dangerous crashes. “I promise you have not heard the end of this one,” he wrote on Facebook. According to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration records,

the 32-truck fleet has been involved in at least three crashes with injuries, and has had more than half its vehicles deemed unfit to drive. Over the past two years alone, Century Waste has received more than 75 violations for unsafe conditions, records show. In a statement, Century Waste called the incident “an unfortunate accident.” "Our hearts go out to the family of the victim. This event was an unfortunate accident,” the company said. “We are fully cooperating with the investigation of this tragic event." Martinez, a Staten Island resident, was on his way to NYPD Headquarters in Manhattan when he died. He reportedly leaves behind a wife and three children.

Cyclone Combo Anchors the Infield Up the Middle BY JIM DOLAN

T

he Cyclones still remain in third place after splitting a six-game home stand with the Tri-City Valleycats and the Aberdeen Ironbirds last week. Despite the split, there were still a number of bright spots during the home stand starting with the second game against the Valleycats. For that afternoon game, fans got an opportunity to root for a rehabbing Todd Frazier as the New York Mets sent the New Jersey native to Coney Island as part of his rehab assignment. In his first game back on the diamond, Frazier did not disappoint the crowd as he sent a solo home run over the left field wall in the Cyclones’ 4-3 losing effort to the Valleycats. In the following game against TriCity, Cyclone Anthony Dirocie hit his first home run of the season since being called up from Kingsport to give Brooklyn a 3-2 edge in the sixth inning. Frazier subsequently came up big in the ninth inning to snuff out a late Valleycat rally with a swipe tag at third base on a throw from the outfield for the final out of the game for the 3-2 Cyclone win. However the most enjoyable moment for fans to watch last week came during the Cyclones’ 13-6 win over the Aberdeen Ironbirds when Brooklyn-born and Maryland-raised Manny Rodriguez cracked his first home over the scoreboard to give Brooklyn a 10-1 lead in the sixth inning.

This season, the Cyclones are strong up the middle with Brooklyn-born and Maryland-raised shortstop Manny Rodriguez (Mets’ 10th round draft pick) out of the University of Cincinnati, and Florida second baseman Carlos Cortes (Mets third round draft pick) out of the University of South Carolina. Rounding the bases with an “ear to ear” grin, Rodriguez returned to the dugout only to get an impromptu “cold shoulder” greeting until he was finally mauled by his teammates. After the game, Rodriguez stated that the home run he had hit was for his mom who was in the stands celebrating her birthday. Thankful that he hit his first home run at MCU Park, Rodriguez recalled the previous week’s road trip in West Virginia where he had already hit a single, double and a

triple. Anxious to hit a home run for his last at bat, Rodriguez faced a former

University of Cincinnati teammate who was “locked in” and struck him out on a full count to deny him the cycle. Complementing Rodriguez at shortstop this season is second baseman Carlos Cortes who plays the game like “a young Jose Altuve” making good contact at the plate and protecting the right side of the infield on defense. As the Mets’ third round draft pick out of the University of South Carolina, Cortes gave the Cyclones a 3-2 lead with a RBI double for Brooklyn’s eventual 4-3 win over Aberdeen. Noting some changes from his collegiate game, Cortes stated that at this level he’s learned to be more patient at the plate in order to be more successful. Another big adjustment is getting used to the everyday grind and the preparation of a professional schedule. After week eight of the season, the Cyclones find themselves with a record of 26-22, still in third place in the McNamara Division, three games behind the division-leading 28-19 first place Hudson Valley Renegades.

Micro Center Brooklyn at Liberty View Plaza Announces STEM Contest for Students BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

L

ocal students have a chance to bring technology home, thanks to a competition sponsored by a Sunset Park store. Micro Center Brooklyn, 31st Street and Third Avenue, is encouraging local students to enter the second Annual 2018 Micro Center Maker Student Contest. The computer and electronics store offers students a chance to win a 3D printer and robotics construction kits via Twitter. The contest runs through September 16, for students age 13 or older who are asked to submit the contest form, then tweet or post a response to the question: “What would you make with a 3D Printer or control with a @VexRobotics Motorized Robotics Arm Kit?” The response must contain the specific hashtags, #RuleTheSchool and @MicroCenter. The student whose tweet or post is judged to be the winner will receive a powerful Dual Extruder 3D

printer and a Vex Robotics Motorized Arm kit. In addition, the winning student’s school will receive a free 3D printer and kit. While these products can be used to create anything, from a cool iphone case to a realistic model of Star Wars’ Death Star, Micro Center hopes to move past conventional uses. Two years ago, researchers from the University of Tokyo were able to build a realistic robot with its own ‘sweating’ cooling system using a metal 3D printer for the complex aluminum structure. “We’re excited to offer a contest which encourages students to think of creative ways to use a 3D printer,” said Kevin Jones, Micro Center vice president of merchandising, “and also help their school stretch their STEM budget.” STEM, or Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, is the term for subjects in education that lead students to innovative careers as defined by former President Obama’s administration and the US Department of Education in 2010.

Mafalda DiMango Remembered as Compassionate Education Leader BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

M

afalda DiMango, a Dyker Heights community leader and educational activist who served for decades on the local school board overseeing enormous changes in everything from classroom instruction to cafeteria lunch menus, died on Aug. 2. She was 91 years old. DiMango was a member of Community School Board 20 for more than 30 years and then served on the Community Education Council of School District 20 when the state education law was changed in 2002 and school boards were abolished. The civic-minded DiMango was also a charter member of Community Board 11 in Bensonhurst and belonged to the Dyker Heights Civic Association for many years. “We at the Dyker Heights Civic ebrooklynmedia/File photo Association are very saddened,” Mafalda DiMango’s work on local school boards dated back civic association President Fran more than half a century Vella-Marrone said. “She was extremely involved in our community they’ll go away,” she told the Brooklyn education law in 1969 to mandate that for decades.

DiMango was born in Salerno, Italy on Oct. 21, 1926 and moved to the U.S. with her parents as a small child. She is a graduate of P.S. 204, New Utrecht High School and Brooklyn College. As news of her death spread, tributes poured in from friends and colleagues. “She lived a full life and left her mark,” said Bill Guarinello, chairperson of Community Board 11. “Her legacy was amazing. She was always civic-minded. And she was active in the school system long after her daughters had grown.” Guarinello noted that DiMango was a original member of Community Board 11. The City Charter created community boards to serve as liaisons between City Hall and neighborhood residents in 1977. “And there was Mafalda, signing up to serve the neighborhood,” he said. “For many years, the District 20 school community was fortunate to have someone like Mafalda DiMango on the front lines wanting nothing less than our schools to succeed and our students to achieve. I am deeply saddened by her passing and extend my sympathies to her family. I have no doubt that her legacy and impact on District 20 will be evident for years to come,” state Sen. Martin Golden said. Councilmember Justin Brannan said he was saddened to learn of DiMango’s death and called her “the matriarch of District 20 public schools for over half a century.” DiMango’s “even-handed, common-sense leadership on behalf of thousands of NYC school kids in Southern Brooklyn will always be remembered,” Brannan wrote on Twitter. DiMango was waked at Andrew Torregrossa & Sons Inc. The funeral mass was held at the Shrine Church of Saint Bernadette. DiMango was buried at Green-Wood Cemetery. The DiMango family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a scholarship fund that will be established in her name. The family will make an announcement about the fund at a future date.

Bay Ridge Comedy Duo Brings Laugh Riot to TV BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

M

ike Rizzo and Brian Bonz could turn out to be the Cheech and Chong of 21st century America. The two longtime friends who grew up in Bay Ridge have formed a comedy duo called Bobo Touch and are now bringing their crazy brand of counter-culture humor to television in a series called “Bobo Touch Helpline.” An episode of the show recently aired on BRIC TV, and Rizzo and Bonz are hoping to parlay that exposure into a regular gig on a streaming service like Apple TV. “Bobo Touch Helpline” centers on two harried fathers, played by Rizzo and Bonz, who work out of an office in a Sunset Park gas station and offer advice to wacky people who contact them with all sorts of crazy problems. “We wanted to give the audience a sense of the kind of wild, only-inNew-York kinds of stories that are out there,” Bonz told this newspaper. The show’s main characters are similar to Rizzo and Bonz in certain respects and much of the humor comes from their real-life experiences as fathers, Rizzo said. “Brian has a fouryear-old. And I’m a new dad,” he said. “We’re using our lives as inspiration.” Each episode is filmed in a real-life

Their influences include David Wain of “Wet Hot American Summer” fame, filmmaker Kevin Smith and the Three Stooges. Both men loved the movie “Airplane.” “We love slapstick humor,” Bonz said. Rizzo and Bonz grew up in Bay Ridge and lived in the Towers of Bay Ridge, the high-rise co-op apartment complex on 65th Street, throughout most of their childhoods. The two men met when they were 12 years old. Soon after meeting, they started a band. They have been working together ever since. Rizzo attended P.S. 170, Our Lady of Angels School and Monsignor Farrell High School. After graduating from Farrell, he went to the School of Visual Arts. Bonz is also a graduate of P.S. 170. He later attended Christa McAuliffe Intermediate School, Fort Hamilton High School and Kingsborough Community College. The madcap story lines on “Bobo Touch Helpline” have a purpose, according to Bonz. “We want to deliver a positive message through comedy.

Getting around Brooklyn is easier than ever, thanks to Uber.

F

rom Bay Ridge to Brownsville, Uber helps us move around in our communities and in every corner of the five boroughs.

That’s why the majority of Uber rides are now outside of Manhattan, in areas like Brooklyn. And, in the past year, trips in our borough have nearly doubled. Uber is helping to fill the gaps in transit service, ensuring that no matter where we live in NYC, we can get an affordable, reliable ride within minutes. After all, the City isn’t just midtown Manhattan.

No matter when. No matter where. Uber is there. Learn more at UberConnectsNYC.com Paid for by Uber Technologies, Inc
