On a wing and a prayer: Activists move to spring chickens from Kaporos slaughter By Alex Williamson and Charlie Innis Greenpoint Gazette
Activists brought hundreds of chickens from the Kaporos ritual to “safe houses” around Brooklyn, like this one in Bushwick.
Throughout the three days leading up to Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement” in Judaism, roughly 50,000 chickens are slaughtered in pop-up butcher stands in the streets of Hasidic communities in Crown Heights, South Williamsburg and Borough Park. Animal rights activists have protested the ritual, called Kaporos or Kapparot, for nearly a decade, most opting in the past two years for more peaceful demonstrations aimed at providing the animals with comfort rather than clashing outright with religious adherents. At a Kaporos site on Eastern Parkway and Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights on Monday, activists fed chickens through crates while others confronted the families buying chickens and used their phones to record them. For some, like animal activist Rocky Schwartz, the action doesn’t stop at protesting. For the past two years, Schwartz and a group of volunteers have rescued and rehabilitated dozens of chickens in the basement of her Bushwick brownstone during the week of Kaporos.

Outraged communities say route change meetings leave them at the curb By Kelly Mena
A recent unveiling of the MTA’s “Fast Forward: Brooklyn Network Redesign” plan was met with immediate concerns as local stakeholders questioned the plan’s outreach efforts — a series of 10 open houses — that community leaders say leave their neighborhoods out of the conversation. The open houses are the first phase of the plan, which will look to modernize and improve the borough’s bus network through a collaborative community process, according to the plan’s goals. The 10 locations include nine library branches — in Bushwick, Crown Heights, East New York, Williamsburg, Park Slope, Bay Ridge, Brighton Beach, Fort Greene and Kensington — as well as South Shore High School in Canarsie. Of these locations, half are clustered in northern Brooklyn and one is in East New York. The other four are spread out over the vast area south of Prospect Park.
“If you want my board and the residents of my community to come out — there is nothing even close to us. There’s one location, but it’s in Brighton Beach — but you have to drive so how would my people respond at all?” said Theresa Scavo, the chairperson of Community Board 15. “So you’re talking Manhattan Beach, Sheepshead Bay, Gerritsen Beach. There’s not a location anywhere near any of those neighborhoods.” The complaints dominated a 15-minute presentation on Oct. 2 at Brooklyn Borough Hall, where MTA representatives briefed community board heads during the monthly Brooklyn Borough Board meeting. Gail Smith from Community Board 14, which covers Flatbush, Midwood and parts of Kensington, noted that reaching every community would be necessary in creating a final plan that includes all members of the borough. “I, too, want to concur about the open house locations. I think that it is critical that there are more,” said Smith.
MTA officials at Wednesday night’s meeting defended the locations. They were chosen because they were the “10 busiest bus stops in Brooklyn,” said project director Evan Bialostozky. As part of the outreach efforts, the plan includes “pop-ups” at the locations not part of the open house series. “This is simply where we are starting,” said Andy Inglesby, the assistant director of government communications and relations for NYC Transit. “We are just kicking this off now, and we will have a whole year to be out there.” Officials also pointed to an online survey for those who want to comment or give suggestions. Bus ridership in Brooklyn has been decreasing since 2016 — down 14 percent — according to MTA officials. Bus speeds have slowed as congestion has increased. The new plan will be phased in over four stages, beginning with community input and wrapping up with a final release of a plan in late 2020. The first open house will be on Oct.
29 at the DeKalb Library.

B’klyn Rep. to White House hopefuls: Prepare to spend big bucks on public housing By Kelly Mena Greenpoint Gazette
A federal lawmaker wants to hear promises from the presidential candidates to make a significant investment in public housing like the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), which houses more than 400,000 people. U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, is now looking to the field of 20 presidential hopefuls — 18 Democrats and two Republicans — to commit major funding to public housing. The congressmember, whose district wraps around Brooklyn from Bushwick to Sunset Park, announced her “Public Housing Emergency Response Act,” a measure that proposes pumping $70 billion into public housing nationally, with nearly half — $32 billion — going to the city’s embattled public housing authority, as first reported by the New York Daily News. “I ask that Donald Trump or whoever will be in the White House in 2020 that they must make a commitment to pass this type of investment,” Velázquez said at a press conference Wednesday morning.
At the Democratic primary debates thus far, the candidates — of which, for a few months, Mayor Bill de Blasio was one — have debated health care, gun control, criminal justice reforms and the climate crisis. But they haven’t specifically tackled the housing issue at an official debate — though many do have a housing platform. “Others, who are today in the campaign trail, need to know and to listen to our constituents that they need to start debating and making a commitment to invest in public housing,” Velázquez told the Greenpoint Gazette after this morning’s press conference. NYCHA is the nation’s largest public housing agency, with 400,000 residents spread across 326 developments. In Brooklyn alone, there are 87 developments, from DUMBO to Fort Greene to Coney Island. The borough’s largest public housing complex is the Red Hook Houses, a sprawling 32-building complex with 1,411 total units. Over the last 30 years, NYCHA has struggled with heat and hot water outages, lead paint and mold issues and mismanagement at the executive level, leading to the appointment of a federal monitor in June 2018.
Velázquez acknowledged the monitor’s appointment but insisted that a lack of investment in NYCHA has been the main factor in crippling the authority and not solely a lack of leadership. “I don’t care how many federal monitors the Trump administration is going to put for the situation here in New York — there cannot be the type of modernization that needs to happen in public housing developments throughout New York City if we do not allocate the money,” she said at the press conference. When pressed to specify where the public housing funding would come from, Velázquez said she “doesn’t know,” but hinted that it could be generated by rolling back tax cuts that have benefited affluent Americans. Velázquez also noted that it could be folded into the infrastructure bill — which would also fund crumbling bridges and roads among other public works projects — that Congress and Trump are currently attempting to pass. “If there is an opportunity for us to pass an infrastructure bill, we want this legislation to be included as part of that. We’re asking, I believe, for $1 trillion dollars for infrastructure. I want $70 billion dollars out of that trillion for public housing,” Velázquez said. “But we need to start somewhere. We need to take a first step.”

On a wing and a prayer: Activists move to spring chickens from Kaporos slaughter Continued from page 1
Long Island, they triaged more than 100 birds this year. Now, they are preparing to transport them to sanctuaries across the country. According to Schwartz, there are at least four other makeshift, home-based rescue operations in Brooklyn rehabilitating hundreds of escaped chickens. The Kaparos ritual involves swinging a chicken above one’s head, reciting a prayer and then giving the bird to a kosher butcher who slaughters it by slicing the throat. The meat is then customarily donated to charity, but whether or not that actually happens in most cases has been disputed by some observers. According to State Assemblymember Simcha Eichenstein, whose district includes Borough Park, the Kaporos chickens in his district are given to needy families following the ritual. “The ritual is actually more humane than the standard factory farming practices. The real difference between Kapparos and factory farming is that factory farming takes place behind closed doors, whereas Kapparos is oftentimes performed in public venues,” Simcha told the Greenpoint Gazette in an email. At the Crown Heights ritual site this year, at least some of the dead chickens were left sitting on the curb in garbage bags for several hours. Activists have sought to end the practice on public health grounds, but in November 2018, the State Court of Appeals ruled Kaporos could continue. Orthodox communities around the world practice Kaporos with chickens. Scholars trace the custom back to the 13th century and possibly earlier, although it doesn’t have its roots in Hebrew scripture. “It’s not entirely clear how it originated,” said Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Brody, a scholar of Judaism and columnist for the Jerusalem Post, who noted that, regardless of whether it has a biblical source, a long-established tradition carries a lot of weight in Jewish law. Why chickens? “On the one hand they’re cheap and accessible, so that makes them usable,” Brody said. “At the same time, one of the Hebrew words for ‘chicken’ can also mean ‘human’ or ‘man.’” Symbolically, the chicken takes the form of one’s sins during the ritual. Killing it is meant to inspire repentance, Brody said. Many Modern Orthodox and Orthodox Jewish people today donate money in lieu of slaughtering chickens, though for some, the alternative lacks symbolic weight. “It doesn’t evoke in people the same response,” he said. Jonah Wachtel, a 22-year-old who identifies as Modern Orthodox, has taken part in the ritual six times. He traveled to the Kaporos site on Eastern Parkway last year to participate. “It’s an ugly scene, but it’s part of the process,” he said. “It smells because of the chickens, and it’s loud, but there’s no other way to do it.” Wachtel said the presence of activists at the Kaporos sites makes some Jewish people second guess the practice. “No one likes to feel like they’re treating animals badly. I know I don’t want to feel like that,” he said. More than 100 chickens scampered around Schwartz’s basement on Monday night, with more expected to arrive over the coming week. She estimates there were about 70 last year. Most of the birds huddled in a large pen at one end of the basement. A few with more serious injuries, like compound fractures, large gashes or broken bones, were segregated from the general population in smaller cages. Name tags were wrapped around the chickens’ legs, and a whiteboard listed the birds’ injuries. Some of the birds were handed over to activists by members of the Hasidic community or poultry delivery workers, Schwartz said. Others escaped their crates and were captured. “There is basically a rule in Jewish law against using chickens who are in some way injured,” she said. “So the activists can say, ‘Well, you can’t use that anyway. Just give them to us.’” An activist named Cindy, who did not wish to provide her last name, said she planned to go out the next day to search dumpsters and garbage bags on the sidewalk for birds that might still be alive.
Finding living birds in the trash after Kaporos is common, Schwartz said. Last year, two activists helped rescue a chicken “that had literally been slaughtered, throat slit, and was alive and is alive today. People saw a trash bag moving and opened it up,” she said. Schwartz says she knows of five other chicken “safe houses” in the city, four in Brooklyn and one in Manhattan, where activists work around the clock during the week of Kaporos to rehabilitate the birds. They then coordinate the distribution of the chickens to sanctuaries across the country, using regional networks of activists. Kaporos chicken adopters lined up to receive Schwartz’s birds this year live as far south as Florida and as far west as Oregon. The activists will first transport a large group of chickens in a moving van to a “regional hub” in Michigan, where other volunteers will come to move smaller groups of chickens to shelters in Colorado, Texas, Washington State and elsewhere, Schwartz said. The effort requires absolute coordination.
Chickens don’t have a gag reﬂex, so forcing them to take medication is surprisingly easy, according to animal rights activist Alexa Stone. Greenpoint Gazette photos by Alex Williamson
“I think activist groups always have in-fighting,” said Schwartz. “But during Kaporos week, even groups that don’t like each other put that aside.” Many of the rescuers are connected through a Facebook group called “Vegans with Chickens.” This year, Schwartz put up her own website to coordinate the effort. Several of the chickens from past Kaporos ceremonies now live with Schwartz and roommate Alexa Stone indoors at their Bushwick brownstone, like pets, although Stone prefers the term “companion chicken.” At one point in the evening, two activists arrived from Crown Heights with four chickens in a box. Schwartz and Stone rushed to check the chickens for injuries, give them antibiotics and inject them with IV fluids. For up to a week before the ritual, the birds are kept in crates on the street, Schwartz explained, so most arrive dehydrated. “A week ago, this was pretty much a normal basement,” she said. “Ideally there would be a big rescue organization doing this, but there isn’t, so we’ve got this volunteer crew operating in a brownstone.”
Protesters at the Crown Heights Kaporos site give the crated birds water ahead of the ritual.

News From Your Neighborhood CATHOLICS PROTEST SNUB OF ST. FRANCES CABRINI
The massive Times Square-style advertising barge that popped up in New York’s waterways last October will no longer operate in the state, according to a settlement reached on Monday between the city and the company responsible for operating the boat. The announcement, first reported by the New York Post, ends a roughly seven-month legal battle between the city’s Law Department and Ballyhoo Media. For the full story, visit brooklyneagle.com.
CITYWIDE — Even though St. Frances Cabrini, also known as “Mother Cabrini,” was passed over when First Lady Chirlane McCray chose subjects for her “She Built NYC” statue program, more than 1,000 parishioners packed a Brooklyn church on Sunday to honor the Italian immigrant saint. Cabrini, who founded 67 institutions to help the needy, finished first in a citywide poll asking who should get a statue, but McCray and former Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen decided to honor seven other women, the best known of whom is the late jazz singer Billie Holiday. The pro-Cabrini Mass took place at Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary and St. Stephen Church on President Street. Many Catholics criticized McCray, who later insisted she wasn’t anti-Catholic, and actor Chazz Palminteri accused McCray of being racist.

COPS INVESTIGATE MULTI-CAR CRASH
SUNSET PARK — Police are investigating after at least two pedestrians were struck during a multi-vehicle crash in Sunset Park, according to PIX11. The incident was reported at 54th Street and Fourth Avenue on Monday just before 2:30 p.m. At least three vehicles were involved in the crash. At press time it was unknown how seriously the pedestrians were injured, PIX11 reported.
POL CALLS ATTENTION TO DYSLEXIA AWARENESS MONTH
PARK SLOPE — Assemblymember Robert Carroll (D-Park Slope-Windsor Terrace-Kensington) recently noted that October marks Dyslexia Awareness Month. Last year, Carroll started a petition calling on the state to fund universal dyslexia screening for all kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade students, according to Kings County Politics. “A disproportionate amount of the over 50 percent of students who aren’t reading at grade level are dyslexic,” said Carroll in a statement. “Our literacy problem touches all types of students and stems from improper curriculum and a lack of screening of students for phonological awareness issues.”
AFFORDABLE BUILDING BREAKS GROUND IN EAST NY
EAST NEW YORK — A new affordable housing building designed by Dattner Architects recently broke ground in Cypress Hill, according to New York YIMBY. Located at 50 Pennsylvania Ave., the nine-story development includes 218 apartments, amenity space and ground-floor retail stores. Amenities are concentrated on the second floor and include recreational, fitness and laundry facilities, as well as storage space for 109 bicycles and parking for 15 vehicles, New York YIMBY said. The building also includes photovoltaic panels, landscaping on the roof and insulation to improve energy efficiency and temperature maintenance.
BAY RIDGE FOOD EVENT BENEFITS ST. MARY’S CHURCH
BAY RIDGE — St. Mary’s Antiochian Orthodox Church at 8100 Ridge Blvd. recently hosted its fourth annual Bay Ridge Eats for a Cause. The event was held to raise money for the church’s teen youth group and its parish ministries, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. Almost 200 people attended to support the cause and eat food from well-known local restaurants including Chadwick’s, Ella’s, Gino’s, Le Sajj, Salty Dog and Paneantico. Guest also enjoyed live music courtesy of Cliff Massab and Breaking News. “Bay Ridge Eats for a Cause is an important event for St. Mary’s,” said Parish Council Chair Daria Mayrose. “It gives us an opportunity to support our local restaurants and open our doors to the Bay Ridge community.”
COPS SEEK PREDATORS WHO ACCOSTED KIDS IN BOROUGH PARK
BOROUGH PARK — Police are looking for four men who are accused to trying to lure children to their vehicle several times on Saturday night in Borough Park. According to PIX11, around 8:30 p.m., four men in a blue SUV first offered candy to two boys, trying to get them into their vehicle near 47th Street and 18th Avenue. Thirty minutes later, around 9 p.m., the same men pulled up alongside a 12-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy on 55th Street and offered them candy, police said. The children ran away and were unharmed.
MADONNA CANCELS CONCERT AT BAM
FORT GREENE — Madonna postponed last Monday’s Brooklyn Academy of Music show because of a knee injury, according to the New York Post. “Unfortunately, Madonna’s ‘Madame X’ concert this evening at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House is postponed,” a statement by Madonna’s representatives read. Other “Madame X” tour dates at BAM scheduled for Oct. 10 and Oct. 12 are expected to proceed as scheduled. In a message posted on Instagram on Monday night, Madon-
na said she is “not a quitter” and assured fans that she would see them “in a few days.”
DRIVER WHO KILLED CHILD NEVER APPLIED FOR LICENSE, SAY PROSECUTORS
KENSINGTON — A driver who struck and killed a 10-year-old boy who was riding a bike in Kensington on Saturday has never applied for a driver’s license, prosecutors said. Victor Mejia was making a left turn off Seton Place onto Foster Avenue in a 2002 Ford Explorer when he struck young Dalerjon Shakhobiddinov, the Daily News said. As the Eagle previously reported, Mejia was granted a supervised release Sunday during his arraignment in Brooklyn Criminal Court on charges of unlicensed driving, failure to yield and failure to exercise due care. Justice John Hecht ordered him back to court Nov. 4 and told him to stay off the road, the News said.
BAZAAR CLOSES IN GREENPOINT
GREENPOINT — Brooklyn Night Bazaar is closing its Greenpoint location before the end of November because of conflicts with its landlord over a new lease agreement, according to the Brooklyn Paper. The business opened within the old Polonaise Terrace Banquet Hall at 150 Greenpoint Ave. in 2016, offering karaoke, ping pong, miniature golf, an arcade and a live music venue on the second floor. In his announcement, Belvy Klein, one of the owners, promised a “killer run” of shows and events through Nov. 30, and added that the venue would host a burger shop during its last eight weeks.
WEGMANS TO INCLUDE RESTAURANT-LIKE FEATURES
BROOKLYN NAVY YARD — When Wegmans supermarket opens at the Brooklyn Navy Yard later this month, it will include several “restaurant concepts,” including a full bar, madeto-order salads, a sushi bar and gourmet burgers, according to NY Eater. The two-level store will have several to-go food counters on the bottom floor, but also the bar and seating on the mezzanine level. Executive chef Stephen de Lucia told NY Eater he’s most excited about the sushi bar, which will offer 28 options. Wegmans will also have a pizza station with a rotating brick oven that can cook a custom pie in 90 seconds. The burger bar will also make lobster rolls, crab cakes and fried chicken sandwiches.
TANKER TRUCK CRASH LEADS TO OIL SPILL
GOWANUS — An oil tanker truck spilled thousands of gallons of oil at Warren Street and Fourth Avenue on Saturday afternoon after smashing into a cement barrier, according to the Brooklyn Paper. Troy Gilberti, who saw the incident first-hand, told the Brooklyn Paper, “It was like a waterfall.” Firefighters closed off the surrounding blocks and used vacuums to collect the spilled oil, although some of it found its way into nearby sewers. There were no injuries, a firefighter said.
DANCE GROUP SEEKS $150K FOR NEW STUDIO
GOWANUS — A dance organization that has been in Gowanus
for more than 40 years is asking for help raising $150,000 to renovate its new studio on Butler Street, according to Patch. Spoke the Hub Dancing, which first opened in Park Slope in 1979, is partnering with Koko NYC, a kids’ program, to open a new dance and art studio called the Gowanus Arts Annex. The new studio needs extensive renovations before it can open. Spoke the Hub founder Elise Long started a GoFundMe account to raise the $150,000 for its needed upgrades. “This new Brooklyn arts center will house two of Brooklyn’s oldest, finest and most innovative not-for-profit community dance and arts organizations, in addition to the studios of artist Ben Lai,” Long wrote.
PERMITS FILED FOR SUNSET PARK B’LDG
SUNSET PARK — Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 228 55th St. in Sunset Park, according to New York YIMBY. The semi-vacant lot, which is located between Second Avenue and the Gowanus Expressway, is two blocks from the R train’s 53rd Street subway station. The building is slated to have 12 apartments, most likely rentals, as well as community facility space. Lam Engineering is listed as the architect.
BURGERS ARE A HIT AT RED HOOK TAVERN
Bill Durney, the man behind Hometown Bar-B-Que in Red Hook, recently opened a new restaurant known as the Red Hook Tavern. While the tavern was designed as a fried chicken emporium, its main attraction turned out to be a cheeseburger, according to The New York Times. The burger is a “pub burger,” a type of burger served in many traditional bars and restaurants such as P.J. Clarke’s, Fanelli’s and Peter Luger. According to the Times, the hallmarks of a pub burger are a thicker-than-average patty and “a relative lack of adornment.” Durney has said he designed his Red Hook Tavern burger as an homage to the one served at Peter Luger.
LANDLORD, SON ACCUSED OF BEATING, INSULTING TENANT
SHEEPSHEAD BAY — An elderly Brooklyn landlord is accused of breaking into a tenant’s apartment, beating her with a cane and calling her the “N-word,” according to the Daily News. The landlord, identified as Eugene Simonetti, hasn’t been charged yet because he was hospitalized with a possible stroke after the confrontation. Simonetti and his son, Rocco Simonetti, went to the victim’s apartment on Voorhees Avenue at East 23rd Street in Sheepshead Bay on Sunday, prosecutors said. The elder Simonetti removed the hinges from the tenant’s door, yelled a racial epithet in front of her children and then started beating her with a cane while the younger Simonetti started punching her, prosecutors claim. However, Simonetti’s lawyer, Nicole Mull, said the victim, identified in court papers as Veronica Cochran, grabbed the 87-year-old landlord’s cane and started beating him. Eugene Simonetti was charged with burglary, assault and child endangerment, the Daily News said.

Brooklyn-based artist designs new jerseys for Brooklyn Nets BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM
The Nets are making a statement with their new jerseys. Brooklyn artist Eric Haze designed the team’s 2019-20 statement edition uniform by Nike in concrete gray which features hand-drawn letters spelling “BKLYN” across the chest, as well as Haze’s signature stars running down the jersey’s left side, as a contemporary twist on one of the team’s most iconic throwback looks. Haze also played a role in the creation of last year’s popular Nets statement jersey, which paid tribute to the Notorious B.I.G. via a customized *BED-STUY* mark for each player on the bottom of the uniform. Haze, who has been an artist for 40 years, told this paper how he got involved in the organization.
“The professional working relationship started last year when the Nets and NBA commissioned me to do a spot graphic on the Biggie Small homage city jersey from last season,” he said. “Then, about a week after delivering that work, they circled back to me and said they were really happy with that initial graphic and that they wanted to take it Photos courtesy of the Brooklyn Nets to the next level and have me actually work on an on-court Players donned the jerseys for the first time at Practice jersey, which of course was at the Park in Brooklyn Bridge Park. an opportunity of a lifetime for me.” was created organically by in the Park in Brooklyn Bridge The design process was an hand.

Arcade brings virtual reality to Bensonhurst BY JAIME DEJESUS
There’s a new game in town. Over the years, arcades have mostly become places of the past, where kids from the ‘80s and ‘90s fed quarters into their favorite arcade games. Whether it be Ms. Pac-Man, Street Fighter or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, arcades offered friends the opportunity to get together to experience competition and a gaming experience they couldn’t get at home. With leaps in technology for home consoles and computers, many arcades have shut their doors, leaving a void. Now, however, the emergence of virtual reality (VR), a technology that requires relatively expensive and cumbersome headsets, has breathed new life into arcades. Enter Futuristic VR, 6604 18th Ave., Bensonhurst’s first virtual reality arcade. Owned by a local family, the arcade, which opened on July 1, provides tons of VR experiences using the PC-powered HTC VIVE PRO Headsets. Owner Elona Lopari discussed the inspiration behind bringing a VR arcade to Bensonhurst and hopefully making it a family destination for years to come. “We’ve actually lived in the area for the last 15 years and we had always struggled with finding things to do around Bensonhurst, so we’ve been using VR in our home for years

The virtual reality experience can now be enjoyed in Bensonhurst. now and it always brought us together as a family,” she explained. “We thought, why don’t we bring the same kind of idea down to our neighborhood?” she explained. “The idea was always around bringing people together and creating an environment where they could come in, just have fun and connect with their friends and families,” Lopari said. The arcade also provides an educational component: students on class trips can virtually dissect a frog, for example, Lopari said, adding that customers have to experience VR to understand it. “You can’t really describe it to them. That’s why we try to get them on the headset so then it speaks for itself. The response, once they finally put it on is, ‘Woah this is so cool.’” Futuristic VR is open Monday through Friday from 1-9 p.m., Saturday, 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday, 12-8 p.m. For more information or to book a station, visit www.futuristicvrworld.com.

FIAO honors Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade grand marshals at 38th annual brunch BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM
Christopher Columbus would be proud of the FIAO! The Federation of Italian American Organizations kicked off its annual Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade, which will take place on Saturday, Oct. 12 and run along 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst, with a festive brunch at which its grand marshals were honored. The event, held at Sirico’s, 8023 13th Ave., on Sunday, Oct. 6, honored this year’s grand marshals: Francesco Genuardi, consul general of Italy in New York; Dr. Salvatore Cumella, executive vice president Lenco Diagnostic Laboratory and president and CEO of Cumella Professional Services; Capt. Anthony Longobardi, commanding officer of the 62nd Precinct; Robert Ciulla, principal at Dyker Heights Intermediate School; and Denise Daniello, director of admissions and community liaison at the Bensonhurst Center for Rehabilitation. Brooklyn Columbus Day Parade Committee Executive Chairperson Jack Spatola served as master of ceremonies for the brunch. President of FIAO and brunch chairperson Carlo Scissura said he was delighted with the multicultural aspect of the parade and the caliber of grand marshals selected this year, who were all chosen based on their exceptional service to the community. “I think it’s an opportunity to celebrate the Italian culture, celebrate the community, celebrate the fact that our Columbus Day Parade includes all different ethnic groups and religious groups and people from across the communities,” Scissura told this paper.

Grand Marshals Francesco Genuardi, Capt. Anthony Longobardi, Denise Daniello and Dr. Salvatore Cumella. “And we’ve highlighted some amazing people that are serving as grand marshals this year. We’re just excited about a great day on Saturday when the parade comes alive and everyone comes together,” added Scissura. One of the topics discussed at the brunch was the refusal of the city to honor Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini with a statue for her many contributions to the city.
“The Italian-American community has contributed so much to our city and state, and in particular the contributions of Mother Cabrini should be recognized in the form of a statue and I’m an advocate of that,” Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis told this paper. “And just like we were successful in preserving and landmarking the Christopher Columbus statue in New York

Eye on REAL
Welcome to Cypress Hills Cemetery, a fine place for a fall stroll.
INBrooklyn photo by Lore Croghan
By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Halloween is coming. What a perfect time for a walk in a Brooklyn graveyard. Why not visit the one where American icon Jackie Robinson was laid to rest? Robinson, who broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball in the 1940s when he played for the Brooklyn Dodgers, is buried at Cypress Hills Cemetery. His grave can be found high up on a hill of the historic cemetery. When I was there a few days ago, his admirers had left a stack of baseballs and three baseball bats in front of his headstone. Robinson, who died in 1972, spent a lifetime fighting for racial equality on and off the baseball field. After his retirement from the sport, he became the first African American to work as a vice president of a big American company and also the first African American to work as a Major League Baseball commentator, History.com says. “A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives,” is the inspirational message engraved on his tombstone.
There’s high-profile Green-Wood Cemetery in Greenwood Heights, where the celebrity graves include those of Neo-Expressionist artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and composer Leonard Bernstein. If you really want to get into the mood for Halloween, Green-Wood offers night-time tours. And there’s the Evergreens Cemetery in Bushwick, where tap dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson and many victims of the
Triangle Shirtwaist Fire are buried. Non-sectarian Cypress Hills Cemetery, which was established in 1848, is situated on 225 acres of hilly terrain. Its front entrance is at 833 Jamaica Ave. It is open every day of the year. If you don’t live in the neighborhood, ride the J train to the Cypress Hills Station to get to the graveyard.

Take a stroll around Cypress Hills Cemetery — Continued from page 16INB — Before you start your stroll, go to the cemetery office and ask for a map that shows notable burials. It’s different from the map that’s online.
AN UNDERGROUND RAILROAD CONDUCTOR AND AMERICA’S FIRST BLACK FEMALE LAWYER The graveyard’s winding, scenic roadways can lead you in lots of different directions. The path I took on my recent stroll led me to a monument for Rev. Charles Ray and his daughter Charlotte Ray. The clergyman was also a journalist and an Underground Railroad conductor. His mother was a fugitive slave and his father was a free black man, author Tom Calarco says in “People of the Underground Railroad: A Biographical Dictionary.” Between 1840 and 1853, Ray was the secretary of an anti-slavery organization called the New York Committee of Vigilance. During those years, he helped more than 1,700 slaves escape to freedom, and helped an unknown number of fugitives after that, Calarco writes. The minister’s daughter Charlotte Ray was the first black woman in the United States to become a lawyer. She used her initials instead of her full name to disguise her gender when she applied to Howard University’s law school. She graduated with a law degree in 1872 and was admitted to the bar in Washington, D.C. that same year, a posting on the website BlackPast says. She opened her own law firm. In 1875, Ray went to court seeking a divorce for a woman whose violent, drunken husband had chopped a hole in their home’s wood floor and threatened to push her through it, a posting on History.com says. Divorce was rare in that era, but Ray won the case. Because of racial and gender bias, Ray couldn’t get enough clients to keep her law firm open. She moved to New York City in 1879 and became a schoolteacher in Brooklyn.
EARLY RESIDENTS OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD After paying my respects to the Rev. Charles Ray and Charlotte Ray, I headed up the hill (one of many, many hills in the bucolic landscape). Shortly thereafter, I discovered the grave of John Pitkin, who was born in 1794 and died in 1847. He was an early developer in East New York. Neighborhood residents remember his name every time they head out on Pitkin Avenue. An East New York Street that runs perpendicular to Pitkin Avenue — Eldert Lane — is named after John Eldert, who died in 1905 and is also buried at Cypress Hills Cemetery. The Eldert family owned a farm and farmhouse at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Eldert Lane, the cemetery’s map says. Further along the way, I saw lovely statues on pedestals. On the Dreyer monument, the statue is a woman wearing a beautifully draped dress and holding a wreath. On the Newman monument, the statue is a winged angel.
A PLACE OF HONOR FOR POLICE OFFICERS Stone obelisks are another popular type of monument at Cypress Hills Cemetery. The one that marks the grave of Oliver Halsey has rows of realistic-looking tassels carved into it. It’s very eye-catching. Despite all my meandering around the peaceful graveyard, I did get to Jackie Robinson’s grave to pay my respects. What an inspirational person. After that, I headed to the other side of the cemetery to the Police Arlington Memorial, which is a special burial place created by the Metropolitan Police Benevolent Association in 1871. It is also known as the NYPD Honor Legion Police Memorial Garden. There are markers to alert visitors to two notable people buried there. One is Rabbi Abraham Blum, who was the NYPD’s first Jewish chaplain. He was appointed to his post in 1911 and served until his death in 1921, the NYPD said when it celebrated the 100th anniversary of its Jewish chaplaincy. The other is Henry Haywood, a New York City police officer who served as one of Teddy Roosevelt’s Rough Riders in the 1898 Spanish-American War in Cuba. Haywood died from a gunshot wound he sustained during the Battle of San Juan Hill. His body was ID’d thanks to the police badge he’d attached to the inside of his shirt, a posting on the website Find A Grave says.
He got his start in business by working as a clerk in a grocery store that also sold wholesale tobacco products. He used his savings to buy the shop in the early 1870s when the owner couldn’t keep it afloat financially, a Brownstoner.com story by architectural history expert Suzanne Spellen says. His first factory was the Bushwick Tobacco Works. He later set up a larger factory in Glendale, Queens. There’s another extraordinary thing to see in this part of Cypress Hills Cemetery. In 1862, a National Cemetery was established for Civil War soldiers. Thousands of ghostly white tombstones are lined up in long rows on the hillsides. There’s something to keep in mind when you take a graveyard stroll. The distances are vast and the gates are locked at a specific time. In Cypress Hills Cemetery, it’s 4:30 p.m. After you leave, take a moment to look at the old-fashioned arched entryway on Jamaica Avenue. It’s made of brick and stone and has an elaborately decorated roof. It’s an impeccable replica of the original structure, which was built in 1893.
A CIVIL WAR BURIAL GROUND
This is Cypress Hills Cemetery’s Jamaica Avenue gate.
Near the NYPD’s memorial garden, you’ll find one of the largest monuments in Cypress Hills Cemetery. It’s an imposing statue of a woman pointing skywards. She’s standing on an extremely tall pedestal. The monument marks the grave of Henry Meyer, a German immigrant who grew wealthy by founding the Ivanhoe Brand Pipe and Chewing Tobacco Co.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Oct. 7, 1927
ON OCT. 7, 1927, the Eagle reported, “Yankee Stadium — A full hour before today’s World Series game started, Babe Ruth stepped up to the plate and sloughed one into the right field bleachers for a home run. Thus the young man who lifts them with shoulders like a bear, known also as the Hoister of Homers and the Sultan of Sock, made the bleacherites completely happy and settled the one remaining question in this series. Nobody hereabouts wonders to whom the pennant will go, but, they ask, will the Babe come through? Well, technically, this was only a practice wallop, maybe — but he came through. For the bleacherites it was enough. This somewhat well-behaved crowd likes the Pirates, otherwise known as the Battling Buccaneers. A tremendous cheer greeted them from the throats of some 50,000 New Yorkers when they appeared on the field and another from perhaps 65,000 throats as they came to bat. ‘I’ll tell you how it is,’ explained the chief of the bleacherites, an honest New Yorker. ‘My money’s on the Yanks, but I’m not prejudiced. From all I can see, we couldn’t have a nicer gang of boys than the Pirates to play.’”

ON OCT. 9, 1927, the Eagle reported, “The New York Yankees are baseball champions of the world today by virtue of the fact that they won four games from the Pittsburg Pirates in a row — and because in yesterday’s battle, the last of the series, John Miljus inserted a wild pitch into the ninth inning with the bases loaded with Yankee ball players. The score of the fourth game was 4 to 3. And it was just about as hectic and wild a bit of athletic drama as one could want to see. They made baseball, it seems, for this … ‘I can’t blame Miljus a mite for the wild pitch that lost the game,’ [Pirates] Manager Donie Bush said. ‘It was just the final break. Johnnie Gooch has caught worse balls in his career, although that was a very bad pitch, but the series is over and I must give credit to the Yankees as one of the finest clubs in the history of baseball.’” ON OCT. 9, 1939, the Eagle reported, “Moscow, Oct. 9 (AP) — Soviet Russia threw her weight behind Adolf Hitler’s peace gestures today in an editorial in the government newspaper Izvestia, accusing Great Britain and France of ‘returning to the Middle Ages’ for waging war to ‘exterminate Hitlerism.’ At the same time, it was announced Premier-Foreign Minister Commissar Vyacheslaff Molotov had reached a quick decision last night with leaders of a German trade delegation. The delegation arrived only yesterday to expedite stimulated trade between Russia and Germany under the recent formal trade and credit agreements between the Nazi-Communist partners. It was not specified what goods were involved.” ON OCT. 9, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, the white-haired grinning Texan who steered the Pacific fleet from the ruins of Pearl Harbor to the triumph of Tokyo Bay, took New York today in the most impressive reception awarded heroes of this war to date. Given a tumultuous ‘well done’ with him were 13 veterans who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor under his command during the three years it took to send the Japanese fleet to the bottom of the sea. Climax of the reception, at which even the skies cleared for the man who was not afraid to ride typhoons to victory, was the stop at City Hall. There, before massed thousands, after a triumphal parade led by 4,000 sailors, marines and coast guardsmen and seven proudly blaring bands through the traditional ‘heroes’ canyon’ of downtown Manhattan, Admiral Nimitz received the city’s honorary citizenship and a specially struck gold medal.” ON OCT. 10, 1849, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reprinted an article from the New York Evening Post, which read, “Edgar A. Poe. — This distinguished author, who was well known in our city for his infirmities as for his genius, died suddenly in Baltimore, on Sunday. His life had been one of unusual and painful vicissitudes. His youth was embittered by the wreck of hopes in which he had indulged until it was too late for him to be educated to the career of independence that awaited him. After leaving the University of Virginia, he passed some time in Europe, and on his return, still young, he entered the Military Academy at West Point, which he left, to undertake the profession of literature. His experience is an addition to the many mournful examples of the vexations and sufferings which follow such an election. He was an industrious, original and brilliant writer; and besides his numerous contributions to the periodicals, he published in volumes Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque; Arthur Gordon Pym (a nautical romance), Poems, Eureka (an essay on the material and spiritual universe), Tales, and two or three elementary books on science. He resided the three or four last years at Fordham near this city.”

Isles end season-opening homestand homewith a dud Neal scores four goals as Edmonton rolls to 5-2 win at NYCB Live By John Torenli Bay Ridge Eagle
“Soft” is a bad adjective for a professional hockey club, but it fit the New York Islanders’ performance in Tuesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers, according to Head Coach Barry Trotz. “I think we were looking for an easy game, and I’m disappointed with that because we knew it wasn’t going to be,” Trotz lamented after New York fell to 1-2 on its season-opening threegame home-stand in front of 10,985 fans at NYCB Live, better known as the ren-ovated Nassau Coliseum. “Too many turnovers, too soft on the battle and [we] took too many penalties,” Trotz added. After splitting their first two contests, including Sunday’s 4-1 victory over Winnipeg in Uniondale, N.Y., the Islanders (1-2-0) broke out to a 1-0 lead over the visiting Oilers when Anthony Beau-villier lit the lamp on a shorthanded tally with 5:46 remaining in the opening period. But, it all went downhill from there for New York, which watched helplessly as Edmonton’s James Neal scored the next three goals, includ-ing two on the power play, on his way to a career-high four-goal night. Isles goaltender Semyon Varlamov, signed this summer to re-place departed Vezina Trophy finalist Robin Lehner, was pulled af-ter yielding four goals on only 19 shots. He was replaced by Thomas Greiss, who surrendered Neal’s fourth goal and sixth in three games this season to give Edmonton (3-0-0) a commanding 5-1 lead. “We took too many penalties,” Trotz said. “It’s not a winning combination when the only two things that you did for the most part tonight was win face-offs and turn pucks over.” Matt Martin capped the scoring with his first of the year, with just under 6 1/2 minutes remaining, but by then it was too late for the Isles to mount a serious comeback as they prepared for their first road contest of the season in Carolina on Friday night. “We certainly didn’t quit, so that’s a positive,” said Martin. “But we’ve got [to] get out of the gates better. We haven’t really come out of the gates in the first period and played well at all yet. In our build-ing, that’s usually our forte. We’ve got to do a better job of that.”

AP Photo by Kathy Willens. The Isles, who led the league in goals allowed last year, had surrendered just three tallies over the season’s first two games, but were uncharacteristically porous on the defense end Tuesday against the Oilers, something they must correct Friday against the team that swept them out of last year’s playoffs. “We’ve got to reflect a little bit on this one,” Islanders captain Anders Lee said. “It wasn’t a very good effort. Top to bottom, we were just kind of all over the place,” he added. “We gave them too much room, didn’t close on them and we were sloppy. A team like that with that much skill, we can’t give them that kind of space. Our overall effort was just disappointing.” *** In other local pro sports news, the Brooklyn Nets are still scheduled to play their two exhibition games in China against LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers despite mounting tensions between the NBA and the Chinese government.
The first game will be in Shanghai on Thursday and the second is slated for Saturday in Shenzhen. However, for the second straight day the Chinese government cancelled an NBA Cares event Wednesday, this one to be hosted by the Lakers after the Nets’ initial event was called off on Tuesday. The cancellations came in response to a tweet by Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey last Friday in support of the ongoing Hong Kong protests calling for more political freedom in China. The Rockets and the NBA have already lost several notable Chinese sponsors over the ongoing controversy and tensions have not exactly eased during this week, which was designed to help the league grow its global brand in the world’s largest international market for basketball. According to the Associated Press, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver did not expect the games to be cancelled, but was heading to Shanghai to help repair the situation.
ISLE HAVE ANOTHER Beauvillier has scored in consecutive games and rookie defenseman Noah Dobson, one of the Isles’ two first-round picks in the 2018 NHL draft, collected his first career assist in his NHL debut Tuesday, helping to set up Martin’s late goal. ... The Isles aren’t scheduled to host their first game at Downtown’s Barclays Center until Nov. 5, but will be back at the Coliseum this weekend, hosting Florida on Saturday and St. Louis on Monday as they play five of their first six contests on home ice. ... Isles forward Josh Bailey played in his 800th career game against the Oilers on Tuesday.
