Beebs and Hailey Baldwin Kissing in Domino Park
Heat wave on the waterfront! The fountains at Domino Park are an instant antidote to it. The just-opened recreation area has rows of inviting water jets for kids to run through when temps soar. They're a relief from hellish weather that's expected to stick around through tomorrow. Two Trees Management spent tens of millions of dollars to construct the 6-acre Williamsburg park, which opened on June 10. And the developer plans to maintain it in perpetuity. The park provides public access to a quarter-mile of East River shoreline where sugar-refinery workers had toiled since the 19th century. It is part of the Walentas family company's Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development. Continued on page 46

Bernie’s, An Old-fashioned Restaurant, Opens in Greenpoint Bernie’s, a retro-style restaurant with a classic menu opened in Greenpoint on Tuesday. The restaurant is named after the owner Zach Frankel and chef Ashley Berman’s grandfathers, both of the same name. The new eatery is located at 334 Driggs Ave. at Lorimer St, where a 1931 Depression-era sandwich counter used to stand. The bar seats 10, and Frankel hopes the place will be one where people eat at the bar. Tables are adorned with the classic red and white checkered tablecloths. The marble countertops from the original restaurant were salvaged, and the restyling included Tiffany-style lights and new oxblood seating. The tables have butcher paper and crayons for the kids too, and seat 50 in total. The menu features a marinated and grilled steak with a side of onion rings and homemade steak sauce. Other standards include crab cakes and chicken paillard. “Maybe people will be super-familiar with the menu items, but we’re hoping they’ll be blown away by Ashley’s takes on these things,” Frankel told Grub Street. A house red and white, textbook Martinis and Old Fashioneds are the drinks offered, and beers are kept cold with a frosty mug chiller. Frankel also owns Frankel’s Delicatessen & Appetizing, which made the 2016 Absolute Best Deli list in New York, according to Grub Street.
Subway Riders Weigh in About How to Fix the Subway
How can New York City improve its subway system? Thrillist asked several transit riders what they think, and here’s what they had to say. Day camp counselor Jake Diamond wanted more fold-in seats “so when I board with 30 rowdy screaming campers, I can corner them somewhere instead of spreading them out all over a train car to make room for everybody else.” Raphael Laude, urban planning intern, said that because the subway system is at capacity during rush hours, the city should offer incentives for businesses to rearrange their business hours. Urban planner Luc Nadal suggested replacing MetroCards with a “tap-in, tap-out system.” And Brooklyn City Councilmember Rafael Espinal said the subway experience “would improve enormously if a train arrived every two minutes at every station in the city and if every station was climate-controlled.”

Williams Sisters, Not Those Ones, Open Laundromat/Cafe in W’burg The Williams sisters (no relation to the tennis superstars) have opened a laundromat, Celsious, where customers can relax with a coffee or do other chores while they wait for their load to finish. Corinna and Theresa explained that the name — although misspelled on purpose for dot-com rights — is a nod to their European upbringing, as they were born and raised in Germany. "We love the metric system," Corinna said. "The precision, yet ease of calculating one-hundredth of a metre is a beauty.” The washers and dryers are on the ground floor, and the second floor is furnished with chairs, tables and a small coffee bar. A garden is also in the back for those who want to hang out in the sunshine. Located at 115 N. Seventh St. in Williamsburg, the sisters revamped what used to be a hair salon and designed a laundromat that is more welcoming and friendly than the stereotypical stainless steel laundromats, according to Dezeen. The furnishing and other elements of the decor were found on Craigslist or through Big Reuse, a company that sells second-hand goods. The duo wants to be energy-conscious and chose Electrolux machines because they are the most energy-efficient, coin-operated laundry equipment currently on the market.
West Coast Climbing Gym Is Coming to North Brooklyn
A West Coast fitness chain plans to open a new gym at 1 Nassau Ave., near the Greenpoint-Williamsburg border. Vital Climbing Gym plans to take the one-story, 31,000-squarefoot warehouse and “build out the total space to as much as 46,000 square feet,” according to The Real Deal. This will be Vital’s first location outside California and Washington state. Mario Faggiano of EXR, the real estate brokerage that represented building owner Cayuga Capital, said his firm “naturally targeted a fitness tenant. There’s a strong health interest in that area, at the top corner of McCarren Park not far from the tennis courts.”

Greenpoint Activist Group Says Site is Too Polluted to House School
A group of Greenpoint residents are fighting against the city’s plan to build a new school across the street from the NuHart Plastics building, which is so polluted it was declared a state Superfund site. According to WNYC, an underground plume of toxic chemicals has made its way to within a few feet of the proposed school site. At a recent meeting, Mike Schade, an activist with the North Brooklyn group Neighbors Allied for Good Growth, urged City Councilmember Stephen Levin, who approved the site in 2013, to go back to the drawing board. “We know that this is a contaminated site; it’s one of the most contaminated sites in New York City and New York state. Let’s find a safer, smarter site for our children,” Schade said. In 2013, the developer agreed to wait until the site was cleaned up, but now it appears that the toxins may be too entrenched to be removed, WNYC reported. Levin will continue to take public input and will decide by the end of the year whether to proceed or start from scratch at another site.

New Brewery and Taproom Comes to East Williamsburg
By Raanan Geberer Greenpoint Gazette
No, it’s not a fairy tale: Grimm Artisanal Ales, a local beer brand, opened a brewery and taproom in East Williamsburg recently. In the new brewery at 990 Metropolitan Ave., owners Lauren and Joe Grimm will serve more than 10 drafts; bottle-conditioned and oakaged sour beers; and some
local wine, cider and soda, according to Eater. Food from the nearby Middle Eastern restaurant Samesa will also be served. About a third of the brewery will be dedicated to making sour beer. Every Saturday, a new type of beer will be featured. Eater describes the decor as “feminine,” with red velvet curtains, plants and incandescent bulbs. Grimm’s hours vary by the
day, but the taproom will be closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays and will be open for more hours on weekends than during the week.

Paperback Popularity: Pulitzer Winner Jennifer Egan Still On 20 City Tour
NY Times Best-Seller MANHATTAN BEACH Moves To Paperback As Critics Still Rave On (Editor"s Note: Recently book publisher Charles Scribner’s Sons described itself as "thrillled" to announce the paper back release of Pulitzer-winner Jennifer Egan's latest novel MANHATTAN BEACH, which was the 2018 winner of One Book,One New York. Finishing up a 20 city book tour in September, Brooklyn resident Egan has also been busy as President of PEN America, the US division of an international organization founded in the 1920s. PEN basically promotes human rights through the written word, and the intersection of writers with other advocates. The article below is a reprint of a Brooklyn Eagle interview conducted with Egan earlier this year.)
By Peter Stamelman
Special to the Brooklyn Eagle
I have been a major fan of Jennifer Egan’s writing since Easter Sunday 2010, when, on the train from Montreal to New York, I read her audacious and dizzying novel “The Keep” in one feverish sitting. By the time I arrived at Grand Central, I felt like I was coming down from an acid trip. Since then I have gobbled up in rapid succession the novels “Look at Me,” “The Invisible Circus,” “A Visit from the Goon Squad” and her masterful short story collection “Emerald City.” Egan’s narrative sleight-of-hand, vivid, compelling characters and edgy, distinctive voice floored me. She writes the sort of books that make you feel you have no choice but to read them. Dickens did that, as did Robert Louis Stevenson. And Hilary Mantel does it now. With this month’s publication of “Manhattan Beach,” her first novel in seven years, Egan joins this august company. “Manhattan Beach” is an old-fashioned page-turner that more than delivers on the foreboding promise of its “Treasure Island”-like opening set piece. Officially published earlier this month, the book has already been longlisted for the National Book Award for Fiction. And deservedly so: The book is a Whitmanesque mosaic that truly does “embrace multitudes.” These multitudes include a post-“Studs Lonigan” Irish-American family that straddles shanty and lace curtain, silky gangsters and bankers who straddle respectability and thuggery; and Brooklyn Navy Yard female lathe operators, welders, machinists, and, in the case of the book’s protagonist Anna Kerrigan, the Yard’s first woman diver, who straddle prejudice and acceptance. For seasoning, also throw into the mix a couple of loogans (i.e., a loser and a hooligan), corrupt union local presidents and Italian-American mobsters and you’ll realize why Egan needs those 400-plus pages. She’s heeded Melville’s advice: “To produce a mighty book, chose a mighty theme.” And, in line with Egan’s longstanding fascination with all things aquatic, Melville also provides the book’s epigraph: “Yes, as everyone knows, meditation and water are wedded forever.” Obviously, the ideal place to have met Egan for an interview would have been the River Cafe. However, Walter’s in Fort Greene, though landlocked, proved more practical. At lunch, Egan and I talked
about the origins of “Manhattan Beach”; her own Midwest (Chicago), West Coast (San Francisco), Ivy-League (University of Pennsylvania), Cambridge University (post-graduate studies), Manhattan/Brooklyn peregrinations; her take on critics and criticism; the limits of realism and a certain master of suspense. The following are edited excerpts of our conversation: Eagle: I read that as a result of your research on women divers in World War II, you discovered a Russian diver who helped clear Cherbourg harbor. That got me thinking: Anna Kerrigan equals Anna Karenina? Was that in the back of your mind? Egan: I think that was in the deep back of my mind. Truthfully, I didn’t fully realize that echo, or resonance, until I was pretty settled on her name. Once I did realize it, I had to ask myself if I could allow that resonance to be there. I decided that actually, I could, because Anna Karenina is about a woman who, essentially, dies for her sexual freedom, so in a way [the resemblance of names] seemed like an apt echo, because “Manhattan Beach” is very much about a woman who exerts a kind of sexual freedom, and certainly craves it. But in fact, she finds a way to slither through the strictures of her culture in order to inhabit that freedom. So, I thought the similarity of names was OK. Interestingly, a couple of years ago I re-read “Anna Karenina” and was reminded of what a fabulous novel it is. Eagle: Is there a through-line from Phoebe O’Connor [the protagonist of Egan’s first novel “The Invisible Circus”] to Anna Kerrigan? They’re fairly close in age, they both set out on journeys: Phoebe’s in search of her sister, Anna’s in search of her father. Even this description of Phoebe feels like it could also apply to Anna: [S]he had a feeling of “mouthing the words to a song she’d never been taught, always a beat too late.” Egan: Yes, I think there certainly is a through-line from Phoebe to Anna. I mean, I was very haunted while I worked on “Manhattan Beach” — before I had really worked out all the narrative and characters — about echoes between the two books. I don’t like to repeat myself and there are certainly some structural similarities. Not in terms of the structure of the book, but in terms of the structure of the relationships. But I felt that I had created enough other “stuff” that I could live with those similarities. Of course, Phoebe is very different
Author Jennifer Egan than Anna: She’s very innocent and very naive and Anna is not, although she has to pretend to be in her 1940s Irish-American world. So, Phoebe and Anna are not alike, but they are connected in some ways and certainly the situations around them are. (Laughing) Good, careful reading there on your part! Eagle: I thought there might be a quiz ... From your extensive list of acknowledgements, which go back to 2004, I gather “Manhattan Beach” has been gestating a long time, more than a decade, right? Egan: Yes ... well the time and the place of the book go back that far. It’s funny, I think everyone defines the idea for a novel differently. For me, it consists of a sense of an atmosphere that I want to immerse myself in for a while. Eagle: A historical atmosphere? Egan: It depends. Up until “Manhattan Beach” it hasn’t been historical ... although, with “The Invisible Circus” it was, but it was a period — the ’60s and ’70s — still within my lifetime, so it was easier to manage than the Depression and World War II years of “Manhattan Beach.” I mean I missed the ’60s essentially but still was very interested in that period, interested in the nostalgia one hasn't experienced, which is an idea I look at a lot in “The Invisible Circus.”

Eagle: Again, from reading through your acknowledgments, one can see that you did extensive research into World War II Brooklyn, the Navy Yard, deep-sea diving, women’s roles in wartime activities. What set off this historical interest in New York? Egan: I’m not totally sure myself, but I think that the genesis was probably 9/11. In that, having been living here at that time, I fully realized what a major and utterly catastrophic event it was in the history of New York. Eagle: In the history of America. Egan: Yes, of course; taking it a step wider, in the history of our country. And it got me thinking about America’s trajectory as a global superpower and the origin of that, its starting point, which immediately led me to World War II. And New York was somewhat important during World War II. Not so much as an industrial center, because during World War II most American industry moved west, particularly to the West Coast. But as a waterfront, New York was critical. So, I was immediately drawn to the waterfront as a place to think about and that led me to the [Brooklyn] Navy Yard, and that led me to deep-sea diving, because there were a lot of deep-sea divers who had worked on the wreckage from the fire on the Normandie.

Paperback Popularity: Pulitzer Winner Jennifer Egan Still On 20 City Tour
Eagle: In “Saboteur,” there is brief, almost throwaway shot (although in Hitchcock no shot is ever truly a throwaway) where one of the Nazi villains, played by Norman Lloyd, who is in a taxi on his way to the Statue of Liberty to kill the hero, when — and here I’ll let Hitchcock himself describe it — “[he] looks out the window on the right and I cut to [newsreel footage of] the hulk of the Normandie, which was then lying on its side, following the fire in the harbor of New York. I cut back to a close-up of the saboteur, who, after staring at the wreck, turns around with a slightly smug smile on his face. The Navy raised hell with Universal about these three shots because I implied that the Normandie had been sabotaged.” (Quotations from “Hitchcock/Truffaut,” Simon & Schuster Paperbacks, 1984.) Egan: Well, as I discovered from all my research, at the time there was a lot of talk about sabotage, but now we know that basically it was the firefighters that sank the ship. There was no sabotage. But, now that you’re describing it, I think I do remember that scene. Eagle: Nobody could sneer like Norman Lloyd. Anyway, another genesis question: Did you know from the start that you would shift perspectives, that the book would be written in the third person? Egan: I knew for certain that it wouldn’t be in the first person, although I didn’t know how many points of view there’d be. I think maybe, at the beginning, I thought it might all be Anna, but I quickly realized that that was going to be too limiting. And Dexter Styles was intruding quickly as a voice, which I was very happy about. So, I always knew there’d be three perspectives: Anna’s, Dexter’s and Eddie’s. I would have been OK if there had been even more, but three was the number that felt right. Eagle: It’s interesting that you say that, because I was surprised [SPOILER ALERT for this and next paragraph] when Lydia [Anna’s handicapped sister] died so early into the novel. I thought she would be more of a fulcrum. Egan: Well, I think she is still a fulcrum, even after her death. I just felt that I had reached the limit of what I could do with her. I mean unless Lydia’s going to get well or to speak, which wasn’t realistic. I don’t calculate these moves in a God-like way. I’m really just following what feels right. Eagle: But did you know that you’d have a handicapped character from the start? Egan: I knew as soon as I actually started writing, but not before that. As soon as I started writing, Lydia was there and I was very surprised. But there was no question about it: I knew that I had a nonverbal consciousness at work. Eagle: [SPOILER ALERT] Are we, as readers, meant to think that Anna and Dexter’s taking Lydia to Manhattan Beach is what kills her? Egan: No, I think not. I mean, in situations like that I don’t usually know more than I’m telling the reader. So, if I don’t definitively an-
Eagle: Your “voice” for “Manhattan Beach” is more traditional than it has been in your previous novels. I mean, in comparing your voice in “Manhattan Beach” to that of “Goon Squad,” it’s as if you’ve written a Victorian novel. Egan: I feel like every book I write requires its own voice in which to be told. Unless, that is, you’re a writer who is returning to the same world and voice each time, which is a very legitimate and satisfying approach, but one that doesn’t work for me. The big challenge for me, with each book, is to find a new voice, with which to tell this very different kind of story. And there’s always that difficult time at the beginning, when I’m stuck with the old voice, because it’s been in my head for so long, and which [laughing] is uniquely ill-suited to tell the new story. I remember vividly, for example, with “The Keep” trying to tell a Gothic story with the same kind of savvy, ironic, slightly acid voice that I used in “Look at Me” — and it was a disaster! Because that voice thought the Gothic was done. Which is essentially telegraphing to the reader: “This book is stupid.” With “Goon Squad,” it wasn’t so much of a problem because I didn’t really start out thinking it was a novel, I just started writing short stories, so I didn’t really have that feeling of a hangover, as I did with “The Keep.” But with [“Manhattan Beach”] at first, I definitely struggled to find the voice and I think that the hangover was that I thought there would be lots of structural innovation in my approach to the past and every time I tried to enact that, it was so lame! Eagle: It was so “lame...?” Egan: Yes, it just didn’t work at all. It was very irritating. Eagle: Why? Egan: It just felt manipulative. Like things that had seemed fun and innovative, I think, to some people in “Goon Squad,” felt manipulative and gratuitous when I applied them to “Manhattan Beach.” For example, leaps into the future ... very, very unappealing in this book, and they had to be quickly discarded. Meanwhile, I was searching for some sort of voice and it came about kind of naturally. That’s how it has to happen. I felt like I wanted to use a kind of stylization that was right for the period. Now some people haven’t liked that. They feel it’s forced, it’s not realistic. But I’m not concerned about realism and [laughing] and I never have been. Eagle: Unless you’re Zola, or maybe Dreiser, realism is overrated. Besides, considering the surreal, Trumpian world we live in today, does realism even exist anymore? And if it does, who can define it? Egan: I totally agree ... what is it?! You know I was trying to find a nomenclature and vocabulary to bring to this material that would enhance the im-

Continued from page 2 Eagle: As an aside: have you ever seen the Hitchcock film “Saboteur?” Egan: I think I have seen it, but not recently and not during the research for, or writing of, “Manhattan Beach.”
swer that question, it’s because I don’t know the answer. You know, it’s amusing — people frequently ask me, “What is [the characters’] diagnosis?” This is because I have written a lot of characters who are mentally fragile or unstable. And I always respond: “I don’t know!” Diagnosis is useful for treatment, but beyond that it’s just labeling, so why limit? And in a way, with some of the other questions about my characters, it’s similar: If I don’t give an answer it’s because I don’t have the answer. If I have the answer I would probably give it — although perhaps not right away, if it’s fun to keep the reader guessing.
mersive experience I wanted to provide the reader. I deliberately wanted to write an old-fashioned adventure story. That is very hard to do in a contemporary novel. I wanted shipwrecks, murders, undersea adventure, almost as if I’m writing an action-adventure book for children. Eagle: It’s Jules Verne, Robert Louis Stevenson. In fact, your sneakily sinister first chapter, when “nearly 12”-year-old Anna accompanies her father to Dexter Styles’ home — a “palace of golden brick three stories high ... the last house on the street, which dead-ended at the sea” — reminded me of the first chapter of “Treasure Island.” Anna is Jim Hawkins, Dexter Styles is Long John Silver (although with both legs) and Eddie is Dr. Livesey, who senses the buried treasure at hand. OK, maybe the last is a bit of a stretch... Egan: [Laughing] I’m so glad you feel that way — I love “Treasure Island!” I love all those books — “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea,” “Kidnapped” and that’s what I wanted to capture in “Manhattan Beach.” Eagle: You’ve taken some stick for this from a few critics. Egan: That’s OK. They’re entitled to their own opinions. You know it’s not as if I’m some fragile, little creature who will break if someone criticizes me! It’s really all right ... I don’t agree with people a lot. They’re book reviewers — that’s their job. Eagle: But actually, the good reviews have far outweighed the bad. Egan: Oh, I know. I have been so fortunate and so rewarded in the vast majority of the reviews. I mean, if I can’t tolerate anyone saying anything bad about me — at 55! — I’m in sad shape. And all of my books, until “Goon Squad,” have had mixed reviews. “The Keep” got a lot of terrible reviews. Eagle: “Goon Squad,” for me, is so redolent
of the ’60s, even though you’re too young to have experienced them. Egan: Well, I was alive during the ’60s. I just wasn’t really very conscious. Growing up in San Francisco, I sort of saw the ’60s out of the window of my parents’ car. I may have been too young to understand everything that was going on, but I was there. Eagle: You were born in Chicago, moved to San Francisco when you were 7, then came East for college at the University of Pennsylvania. Then you went even farther afield, for graduate school at Cambridge in England. Then you came back to Brooklyn? Egan: Manhattan, actually. Eagle: So what drew you to live in Brooklyn? Egan: We moved to Fort Greene in 2000, so we’ve been here almost 18 years! A few things led us to move: My husband was already working in the neighborhood, so we were familiar with its beauty. We were also living in essentially one large room/loft right near Penn Station, and expecting a baby ... our digs seemed pretty untenable for parenting. It was natural to look in Brooklyn, therefore, and we did beat the rush — just! — though I’m not sure we can really be called pioneers as so many of our neighbors were already here (some for generations) by then! We have never owned a car and both love walking and street life. Brooklyn was as suburban as we were willing to get! Eagle: So, you’re not decamping to Montclair or Manhasset anytime soon. Egan: Leave Brooklyn? Never!

Boricua Festival brings the heat, fundraises for Puerto Rico BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
unset Park brought the heat and Puerto Rican pride. The 20 th annual Boricua Festival Salsa at the Waterfront returned to Sunset’s Pier 4 on Saturday, June 30, making for yet another successful event. Despite the excessive heat, a massive crowd ate and danced the day away at the festival, a highlight of which included a performance by 10-time Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri. “It was amazing,” said Co-Founder and President of the Boricua Festival Committee Pat Ruiz. “It was an absolute success. Despite the heat, it was a great turnout.” This year was special, Ruiz said, as the festival also served as a fundraiser for Puerto Rico after the destruction brought by Hurricane Maria. “I still have the containers. I haven’t had an opportunity to empty them but I see hundred dollar bills in them,” she said of the total amount raised. Among those who donated, she said, was the Eileen C Dugan Senior Center in Red Hook. “[We just received] a $350 check from the seniors so I’m really gracious and grateful,” Ruiz said, adding that one of the center’s reps -- a big

Ruiz also stated that the 72nd Precinct did a stellar job monitoring the event, with no major incidents reported. “We did have two people affected by the heat but our local hospital which was NYU Langone-Brooklyn was on the scene,” she said. “They treated them, and they refused to leave. We made sure they had water.” For the second year, the Boricua Festival Committee distributed scholarships to three Puerto Rican students as part of the Dr. Antonia Pantoja Youth Leadership & Service Award. This year’s recipients were Julian Perdomo, Briana Rodriguez and Illusion Rivera. “They didn’t know they were getting checks and that was a big surprise,” she said. “One of our sponsors, Bed Bath & Beyond, gifted them each with $500 gift cards.” Although Ruiz just finished her 20 th year organizing the festival, she’s already prepping for the next one. “We hope to make next year just as big or even bigger,” she said.

Stroll Down Leonard Street and See a Slice of East Williamsburg By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Could you give a visitor directions to Leonard Street without using your smart phone? Probably not, unless you live there. North Brooklyn is where you go to find this fascinating residential street.
It slices through non-landmarked sections of Greenpoint and East Williamsburg. Stroll this street with us, and you’ll find varied forms of housing: Historic wood-frame houses, old-fashioned multifamily buildings, recently constructed apartment buildings, New York City Housing Authority projects and a vast Mitchell-Lama complex. Go to brooklyneagle.com to read about the end of Leonard Street that runs through Greenpoint. These pages in today’s newspaper will guide you along the East Williamsburg end of Leonard Street. We love Lorimer Street. Everybody loves Lorimer Street. It’s a go-to spot in East Williamsburg for dining, drinking and walking around. One of our favorite murals is there, on the corner of Lorimer Street and Metropolitan Avenue, above the entrance to the L and G train station. Today, though, we’re going to expand our horizons. Come with us as we exit this subway stop and head one block east so we can stroll down Leonard Street. This will give us a slightly different perspective on the neighborhood. The first thing we notice is the unusual sidewalk kiddie ride outside Metropolitan Fish Market on the corner of Leonard Street and Metropolitan Avenue. We think coin-operated pony rides are nostalgia-inducing. They always catch our eye. They can be found on many retail corridors in Brooklyn neighborhoods. Sometimes, instead of steeds, the rides are donkeys that look like Shrek’s friend in the film series. Sometimes, the rides are space ships.
ABOVE: We love these houses on Ainslie Street near the corner of Leonard Street. The market at 635 Metropolitan Ave. is only place we’ve ever seen whose sidewalk kiddie ride is a giant fish wearing a saddle and floating on a blue wave.
A Fine New Facade and a Carnegie Library
The first block of our stroll is Leonard Street between Metropolitan Avenue and Devoe Street. There, a rowhouse with a handsome architectural-wood facade catches our eye. The unpainted wood runs vertically down the facade rather than horizontally like clapboard planks. Previously, the house at 288 Leonard St. was covered with tar-paper shingles, old Google Maps photos indicate. The owner of the two-family house renovated it after buying it for $1.3 million in 2015, city Buildings Department and Finance Department records indicate. On the corner of Leonard and Devoe streets, we find one of the Brooklyn Library’s Carnegie branches. More than a century ago, philanthropist Andrew Carnegie was the richest man in the world. He donated money to build public libraries throughout New York City. Brooklyn’s portion of that funding was $1.6 million. Architect William B. Tubby designed the red-brick Leonard Library at 81 Devoe St., which was built in 1908, a posting by the Historic Districts Council says.

Traces of the Area’s Industrial Past
Wood-Frame Rowhouses and a Lipka Tatar Mosque
As we continue down Leonard Street, old-fashioned wood-frame rowhouses charm our eye. There are especially nice ones as we turn the corner onto Ainslie Street. By the way, a shop called Ben’s Books at 145 Ainslie St. looks intriguing. An eye-catching cluster of frame houses can be found at 234-238 Leonard St. on the corner of Powers Street. Around the corner, there’s an austerely beautiful building at 104-108 Powers St. It’s clad in pale-green wood and topped by a small octagonal minaret with a crescent moon above it. The Powers Street property has served for the past century as a mosque for Lipka Tatar immigrants and their descendants. “Lipka” is the Crimean word for “Lithuania.” The Lipka Tatars are Turkic Muslims from Central Asia who settled in the 14th century in what is now Lithuania, Poland and Belarus. An article about the mosque in Trumplandia says the building was constructed in 1885 as the Second Methodist Episcopal Church. It was later used as the headquarters and clubhouse of the Thirteenth Assembly District Democratic Club.
Trumplandia is a magazine created by Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism students. Alyssa Ratkewitch, the youngest member of the mosque’s governing board, spoke in the Trumplandia story about plans to restore the Powers Street building and draw visitors to it with yoga and Tatar cooking classes. A 2016 article published on Public Radio International’s website also detailed Ratkewitch’s hopes for revitalizing the mosque, whose congregation has been dwindling in size since the 1950s. Her grandfather had been an imam at the mosque.
Oh darling my heart's on fire. (Yes, that's a lyric from a Passenger song.) Seen at 99 Montrose Ave. near the corner of Leonard Street.
The corner of Leonard and Grand streets has classic brick rowhouses. After that, Leonard Street serves as a boundary of a super-block that extends from Maujer Street to Scholes Street where the Williamsburg Houses are located. The New York City Housing Authority complex was constructed in the 1930s and funded by the Depression-era Public Works Administration. On the corner of Meserole Street, there’s a rental-apartment building developer Yoel Goldman constructed a couple years ago. Its address is 125 Leonard St. On the next Leonard Street corner, there’s another new rental apartment building — 73 Montrose Ave. Developer Yidel Hirsch constructed this five-story, 40-unit property on a site he bought for $4.1 million through an LLC, Finance Department records indicate.
A mural brightens the ground floor of 93 Montrose Ave., which is near the corner of Leonard Street.
Old and New Developments
Right next door to this apartment house, there’s a slim four-story brick building at 71 Montrose Ave. that has business names of the distant past painted on its facade. “Home of Korbro Salad Oil” is the largest, most legible slogan. “Montrose Smoked Fish” is another. The third name on the building is “Korchin,” which a posting on website Eating in Translation says “has the most celebrated legacy” of the three businesses. The posting provides a link to a 1984 New York Times story about Marshall Smoked Fish Co., whose president at that time was Mortimer Korchin. His father had started the company in 1909, the story says. Mortimer Korchin’s 2009 obituary says Marshall Smoked Fish Co. was sold in 1998. Later, successor company Homarus/Marshall Smoked Fish was sold to a conglomerate called Sea Specialties — which filed for bankruptcy in 2005. In 2006, a Florida bankruptcy judge approved the sale of Homarus/Marshall Smoked Fish to Banner Smoked Fish. Coney Island-based Banner Smoked Fish’s website indicates that it has kept both the Marshall and Homarus brands alive.
But more about 71 Montrose Ave. In 1990, 71 Montrose Ave. Corp., whose president is Andre van Hoek, bought the building for $75,000, Finance Department records indicate.
Funky, Funky Broadway
Further down Leonard Street, there’s seven-building Lindsay Park Housing Cooperative, an affordable-housing Mitchell-Lama complex. In January, its former board president was sentenced to prison for her role in a kickback scheme that involved padding apartment-repair bills, the Brooklyn Downtown Star reported. Leonard Street ends at Broadway — where you can find an entrance to the elevated Lorimer Street J train station.
Part of Mitchell-Lama complex Lindsay Park Housing Cooperative is at the intersection of Leonard and Boerum streets.

Re/Max Edge is Welcomed into Bay Ridge Family

usinesses in Bay Ridge are like family according to State Sen. Marty Golden who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Re/Max Edge at 9425 Third Avenue on Wednesday, June 27. “We’re happy Re/Max Edge is opening up its new location in our neighborhood,” Golden said. “We’re all one big family in this community and now we have a new business joining our family.” Owner Michael Napolitano welcomed an enthusiastic group of colleagues and well-w ishers who had crowded around the new real estate office. Guests enjoyed champagne as they cheered Napolitano on to cut the ribbon. “I want to thank everyone for coming, especially my family, my wife Lauren and my son Sam Napolitano steals the Sam,” Napolitano show at Wicked Monk celesaid. “And I want to bration as his proud father thank the operations Michael watches.

Landmarks Preservation Commission approves Brooklyn Bridge archway renovations BY LORE CROGHAN
BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE
onstruction alert! The city Department of Transportation plans to renovate the underbelly of the famous Brooklyn Bridge. The agency hopes to start next June on a major overhaul of the Italian Renaissance-style arches that are important architectural features of the approach to the bridge in Lower Manhattan. Originally, the arches below the famous bridge were open voids. Decades after the bridge's 1883 debut, the archways were filled in with brick, which has deteriorated. On Tuesday, July 10, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to approve the transit department's proposed restoration of these archways. The commission's vote took place at its headquarters — which coincidentally is located near the Brooklyn Bridge's Lower Manhattan vehicular and pedestrian entrances. The renovation project will also include repointing the stone on the Brooklyn Bridge's main towers and installing metal bars to reinforce the towers' Gothic arches. Also, the masonry on the arches on the bridge's Brooklyn approach will be repointed. The Department of Transportation hopes to complete this project in December 2022. The city agency has already spent many years on other Brooklyn Bridge rehab projects. Past bridge renovation caused distress to residents who live near the bridge in Brooklyn Heights, Concord Village and Lower Manhattan. Their sleep was interrupted by work done at night. After the Landmarks Preservation Commission's vote, Nick Pettinati, the Department of Transportation's deputy director of urban design, told the Brooklyn Eagle the agency is “still working out the details” of whether or not the upcoming bridge repair project will involve nighttime construction.
WHY NOT RETURN THE ARCHES TO THEIR ORIGINAL CONDITION?

These Brooklyn Bridge arches are on Park Row in Lower Manhattan. Landmarks Preservation Commission's vote, Pettinati said the brick in the Lower Manhattan bridge arches has deteriorated and needs to be replaced. The transit agency plans to construct reinforced concrete walls that will stand behind new brick walls in the archways. The Landmarks Preservation Commission's Acting Chairman Fred Bland asked Pettinati why the bridge arches can't be left open — as they were when the bridge was originally designed — after the brick infill is removed.
The Department of Transportation's answer was two-fold. First, there are security concerns. The Brooklyn Bridge is a terrorist target. Second, walls are needed inside the arches to add structural stability to the bridge. In testimony during the hearing, Barbara Zay of the Historic Districts Council called the archway rehab project “a commendable and worthwhile endeavor.” She recommended that the Department of Transportation consult Landmarks Preservation
The world-famous bridge was the first span to link Brooklyn and Manhattan. Until the Brooklyn Bridge's much-heralded opening, people relied on ferries to travel between the two places. With a main span of 1,595.5 feet, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its debut until 1903. John, Washington and Emily Roebling led the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, which took place between 1867 and 1883. At least 20 people died while building the bridge, including John Roebling, who got tetanus after a foot injury. His son, Washington Roebling, succumbed to caisson disease and was confined to his home in Brooklyn Heights. He sat at a window at 110 Columbia Heights and used a telescope to watch the construction work, supervised by his wife, Emily, continue without him. The Brooklyn Bridge was designated as a city landmark in 1967.

Landmarks Preservation Commission designates Boerum Hill historic district extension BY LORE CROGHAN
and Bond streets — and rowhouses with Victorian wood storefronts on portions of commercial corridor Atlantic Avenue between Hoyt and Nevins streets. In a statement issued after the vote, Boerum Hill Association President Howard Kolins applauded the historic district extension's designation. “By adding more residential streets to our current district and also a portion of Atlantic Avenue, a very special commercial zone, we will further protect our neighborhood's historic character,” Kolins said. Boerum Hill activists had tried on various occasions since the 1970s to win the commission's approval for expanding the historic district.
BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE
oerum Hill activists have waited four decades for this moment. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission just said yes to expanding the neighborhood's historic district. At a meeting on late last month at its Lower Manhattan headquarters, it voted unanimously to grant protected status to nearly 300 rowhouses and apartment buildings in three distinct areas adjacent to the existing Boerum Hill Historic District. Many of the buildings in the new Boerum Hill Historic District Extension were constructed either in the 1840s and 1850s or the decades immediately after the Civil War. Area I, which is west of the existing historic district, includes blocks of Dean and Bergen streets between Smith and Hoyt

At a hearing in May, numerous Atlantic Avenue landlords said they opposed the inclusion of their properties in the landmarked area. More than 20 of them signed a “no landmarking” petition. Other Atlantic Avenue landlords spoke in support of the landmarking measure at that hearing. Tuesday, prior to the vote, a Landmarks Preservation Commission staff member said the landlords' opposition prompted commission researchers to do a fresh analysis of the Atlantic Avenue properties included in the proposed historic district extension. On the basis of their analysis, the researchers recommended that no Atlantic Avenue buildings should be dropped from the proposal. Following the vote, a Landmarks Preservation Commission spokeswoman told the Brooklyn Eagle that after the May hearing, commission staffers met with Atlantic Avenue landlords opposed to landmarking and landmarking supporters to get their input and answer their questions. Landmarking will protect the Boerum Hill Historic District Extension from large-scale development because it means builders now cannot demolish properties or alter their exteriors without the preservation agency's approval.

WELCOME TO CONEY ISLAND
A revitalized Coney Island brings new events and nostalgic fun this summer
ebrooklyn media/Photo by Stevie Borrello
BY STEVIE BORRELLO EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
oney Island is a quintessential New York City summer staple. It is a refuge not only for South Brooklyn locals to escape the heat, but also for residents of every borough to come and spend their weekends at a beach town that makes them feel miles away from the concrete jungle. The revitalization of the area brings more attractions, events and establishments each summer, making Coney Island a destination on every New Yorker’s summer bucket list. One of those new attractions is the Ocean Wonders: Sharks! exhibit at the New York Aquarium, which includes over 10 species of sharks including sand tiger and blacktip reef sharks. The exhibit, which took over four years to complete from the groundbreaking in January 2014, is
crucial in teaching New Yorkers the significance of protecting the city’s marine ecosystems and biodiversity. “We’re celebrating a remarkable new facility where New Yorkers can learn more about – and be delighted by – our ocean-dwelling neighbors. But we’re also celebrating another big step toward recovery from the devastation of Hurricane Sandy,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio at the ribbon cutting event on June 28. The restoration and revitalization of Coney Island started before the mass destruction left by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and developments continue to be made in the area. “Investing in our cultural institutions is critical to our ongoing neighborhood investments, and we’re thrilled to see this iconic exhibit build on the momentum in Coney Island,” said James Patchett, President and CEO of New York City Economic Development Corporation
(NYCEDC), at the event. Brooklyn’s only beachfront rooftop The revitalization of Coney Island bar, according to Martinez.

WELCOME TO CONEY ISLAND Continued from Page 23 he Cyclones have become a staple at Coney Island, and as Harner says, “Play ball means it’s the start of summer.” On a typical summer day in Coney Island, there is a constant flow of people coming off the trains and flocking to the beach, sauntering around the boardwalk or laying on benches basking in the sunshine. While there are endless activities, from Circus Sideshows and
Burlesque at Coney Island USA to the iconic Cyclone roller coaster and Deno’s Wonder Wheel rides, the mass of people appear to prefer the calm, lazy days spent avoiding the chaos from the New York hustle and grind. “I come out here almost every day,” said Coney Island resident Ronnie Brown. “The water calms me,” he said, relaxing on a bench and staring out into the ocean. Brown has been living in the area for about 45 years and described how he saw the changes in the neighborhood over time. “I had seen it in its worst days,” he said, “it has changed a lot for the better. Now all walks of life come here and it’s a diverse area.” While the revitalization efforts have mostly been focused around the Coney I s l a n d boardwalk and amusement area, it has also impacted local residents by upgrading sanitary sewer lines and a mixeduse residential building that features a community center. NYCEDC plans to continue renovating

infrastructure in the neighborhood, according to their project plans on their website. The refurbishments also do not take away any of the Brooklyn charm from Coney Island. When Brenda Rodriguez has free time, she travels from her home in Staten Island to come back to her childhood

leaning back on the bench, smiling wide, watching the people passing by. “I did everything over here as a kid — the Cyclone, the spook house, even the Jumbo Jet when it was there.” Since Rodriguez’s childhood days, several events have been created to entertain the crowds, including free movie nights on the beach, the Annual Sand Sculpting Competition and the Coney Island Music Festival, according to Cindy Godla, events,
marketing and public relations manager for the Alliance for Coney Island. “Whether you're a beach lover or adventure seeker, there is something for everyone in Coney Island,” said Godla. “We have tons of history here.” Gravesend resident Jeanette Wert enjoys heading to Paul’s Daughter, one of the oldest establishments on the boardwalk, to have a beer and hamburger, a routine she looks forward to when she heads to the beach. Walking past Paul’s Daughter one can see longtime locals like Wert alongside families getting fuel after going on rides at Luna Park, all defining their own Coney Island experience. “There is a strong sense of community here,” said Wert.

Coney lights up the sky with annual fireworks show BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
spectacular day in Coney. On Wednesday, July 4, Coney celebrated Independence Day with a bevy of events, capped off by the annual Fourth of July Steeplechase Spectacular Fireworks Show at the boardwalk. This marked the fifth annual free fireworks show put on display by the Alliance for Coney Island. A large group of spectators took to the boardwalk at around 9:30 p.m. to view the show. “We stand out from other locations because there's so much more to do in Coney Island than other locations who have fireworks shows,” said Cindy Godla, events, marketing and public relations manager for
the Alliance. “We have tons of attractions, amusement rides and eateries to enjoy before and after the fireworks. A lot of our guests spend the entire day in Coney Island.”
Godla also discussed the holiday as a whole in Coney. “Fourth of July in Coney Island went great,” she said. “We had a large turnout throughout the course of the day for all the Scenes from the annual fireworks display. different activities happening. From the weather bringing us a beautiful beach day and
the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest to the Brooklyn Cyclones game at MCU Stadium and the fireworks show in the evening, there was plenty to do.” Although there are many places for New Yorkers to catch some fireworks, there’s something about Coney Island that makes it special for its attendees, she said. “We love to be able to show visitors how great Coney Island is,” said Godla. “Many people think of Coney Island as either a beach, an amusement area or a neighborhood but never really connect all three together. When they come to Coney Island and see all the new and exciting changes it really helps breathe a new perspective into them and it’s great to see how excited they are to come here.” It doesn’t end with the Fourth, Godla added. “We do weekly fireworks show every Friday night in the summer, so for anyone who missed it, they can join us every Friday night at 9:30 until August 31st,” she said.

Chestnut breaks record at annual Hot Dog Eating Contest BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
ot dog! It was another record-setting Fourth of July in Coney Island at Nathan’s Annual International Hot Dog-Eating Contest. Thousands of attendees witnessed Joey Chestnut claim victory once again, taking home his 11th championship, and breaking a world record by stuffing 74 hot dogs down his gullet in just 10 minutes, besting his previous record by just a single hot dog. On the women’s side, Miki Sudo was victorious for the fifth straight year, eating 37 franks. Major League Eating (MLE) Commissioner and emcee for the event George Shea described the event as another success. “We had a variety of really great acts, a beautiful summer day and a spectacularly huge crowd that was just really into it. From that element, it was grand slam home run,” he said. However, the contest wasn’t without controversy. For the first time since its

The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest had repeat winners, Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo. inception in 1972, there was an error with the count which originally had Chestnut eating 64 hot dogs instead of his actual record-breaking number -- a number that was given to ESPN that was broadcasting the event. The error, Shea said, came because of the number of hot dogs piled in front of Carmen Cincotti and Chestnut. “It made it difficult for the judges or counters to get it right,” he explained. “When the judges looked at the conclusion, it was clear that Joey had eaten more than originally thought; likewise with
Carmen because it was just a mountain of hot dogs in front.” But, he added, the system put in place clarified the situation, and the count was corrected. “[Chestnut] wanted to break to record and our credibility is on the line. And we did get the right count,” he added. “Our job at Major League Eating is to get the right count and run a fair contest. We did but the counters messed up. I was telling the thousands of people there the wrong numbers and ESPN was reporting the wrong numbers initially. At the end, we got it
right. But it was extremely frustrating for everyone, Joey Chestnut included.” The counters’ “one job [is] to count correctly and they didn’t do their job,” Shea said. “That’s just the facts. I’m not going to sugar coat it. It won’t happen again. We are going to adjust this.” Shea pointed out that Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez was present and helped confirm the correct count. “To have the Brooklyn DA there was fortunate. He came over, and we went through everything with the plates, the eaters and the Nathan’s staff,” he said. “He got the same count.” Despite the mishap, Shea was thrilled to participate once again. “It is a singular pleasure in my life. I enjoy it so much and the crowd is just so much fun to connect with,” he said. “The vibe is just incredible. A lot of it is because of the crowd. It’s truly gratifying on every level.” It’s part, Shea added, of what makes Coney Island special. “It’s not luck to have these things,” he said. “Coney Island has great events because it’s Coney Island. Only they do things like this. There’s a magic to it. That’s why we have so much attention. It’s a special place.”

‘Greetings from Coney Island’ Shines at Brooklyn’s Federal Courthouse Gallery By Rob Abruzzese Brooklyn Record
Donato DiCamillo was born in Brooklyn, the child of Italian immigrants. At a young age, DiCamillo had behavior issues and by the time he was 16, he was kicked out of school. Eventually, he found himself inside a federal prison in Virginia. Nowadays, you can find DiCamillo, or at least his photographs, in Brooklyn’s federal court, where they are on display from now until Sept. 28. When DiCamillo was in federal prison, he became intensely interested in photography. When he was released in 2012, he taught himself how to use a camera while still in home confinement.
He took photos of bugs, plants and anything within 120 feet of his home. Eventually, he made it to Coney Island. “If you look at his photographs, his photos are really strong just like all of the photographs here,” said Magistrate Judge Robert Levy. “But there is something really amazing and elemental about them.” DiCamillo is one of 28 photographers whose work is on exhibition at the Charles P. Sifton Gallery in Downtown Brooklyn’s Federal Court. “Greetings from Coney Island” features artists documenting America’s Playground — the culture, the characters, the Mermaid Parade, the Polar Bear Plunge and, of course, the boardwalk.

Diocese of Brooklyn Ordains Five Priests By Francesca Norsen Tate
Religion Editor INBrooklyn
The five new priests recently ordained for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn reflect this borough’s international flavor. Ranging in age from 28-41, they came to this diocese from around the world—from Vietnam, Germany and Haiti to Queens here in New York City—, and their spiritual journeys included bouts with cancer and a family’s adversities. The ordination Mass took place at the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph on June 30. More than 1,000 attended the Mass, with Diocesan Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio presiding with six auxiliary bishops in attendance; guest prelate Archbishop Benedito Auza, the Representative of the Holy See at the United Nations; and 150 priests concelebrating. Poignant highlights of the multi-lingual service included the laying-on-ofhands in turn, by Bishop DiMarzio and each of the 150 other priests, and a turning-of-the tables traditional blessings that the new priests confer upon the auxiliary bishops following the Mass. Bishop DiMarzio, in his homily and official Charge to those being ordained, spoke of the Day of Reflection that he leads with each year’s new class of priests, just before their ordination. During that retreat, the candidates for priesthood share the experiences and internal growth and discernment that led them to recognize and embrace their calling. Bishop DiMarzio told the five men that, as priests, they must preach the Gospel through their actions, serving as shepherds who guide the faithful to find joys even in the daily trials and adversities of life, and to be protectors and advancement of the weak. He pointed out that in order to do so, the priests must also ex-

He said also that the new priests must unite their hearts with the actions of their ministries. “Impart to everyone the word of God which you have received with joy. Meditating on the law of the Lord, see that you believe what you read, that you teach what you believe, and that you practice what you teach. “Understand, therefore, what you do and imitate what you celebrate. As cele-
brants of the mystery of the Lord’s death and resurrection, strive to put to death whatever in your members is sinful, and to walk in newness of life.” DiMarzio also read a portion of his message in the languages of the new priests: Haitian-Creole, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Italian, and received much applause. The new priests are: Fr. Anthony Giuseppe Linardi, Fr. Cao Zuân Hu’ng, Fr. Patrick Dorelus, Fr. José Bernardo

Diaz and Fr. Joseph Franklin Dutan and Three of them will be serving parishes in Queens: Cambria Heights, Corona and North Floral Park. Two of the New Priests Will Serve Parishes in Brooklyn Two of these new priests have been assigned to parishes in Brooklyn. Fr. Alessandro Giuseppe Linardi, who was born in Germany of Italian parents, is fluent in four languages: Italian, German, Spanish and English. He will be serving St. Athanasius Church in Bensonhurst, itself a multi-cultural parish that offers Mass in Italian, Spanish and English. Linardi dedicates himself to a place that “he sees as the place of the modern Pentecost, where people of different languages and cultures live and pray together,” according to a biography published on the Diocese of Brooklyn’s website. Fr. Joseph Dutan found his life and acceptance of a calling in the throes of a life-threatening illness. He was diagnosed with childhood leukemia just before he was to resume college. (He had been working at a pharmacy.) The diagnosis sent him into a deep depression and he isolated himself in his hospital room, angry with God. But a hospital chaplain named Fr. Quintero did not give him on Dutan as easily. Dutan remembers finally being able to say yes to God in that hospital room, and said that his physical and spiritual healing was more pronounced after he entered seminary. Fr. Dutan is assigned to St. Brigid Church in Bushwick.

Speed camera advocates use public opinion to sway State Senate BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
peed camera proponents have tried everything to convince the State Legislature to allow New York City to keep the picture-taking devices operating past the July 25 deadline when they are due to be turned off. Advocates have held vigils and protest demonstrations outside the office of influential Republican state Sen. Martin Golden in Bay Ridge. They have also protested outside P.S. 215 in Gravesend and held a press conference in the Narrows Senior Center in Bensonhurst. Now transportation safety advocates have another weapon. They are using public opinion polls in the hopes of swaying the Republican-controlled State Senate, which ended its legislative session last month, to return to Albany for an emergency session to vote on a speed camera bill. The Democratic-dominated State Assembly already passed a bill. Transportation Alternatives, one of the groups leading the fight, is pointing to a new survey from Public Policy Polling which showed that 84 percent of New York voter support speed camera enforcement. The figure includes 77 percent of people who want the program expanded beyond the 140 cameras currently on city streets. Among Brooklyn voters who were surveyed, 93 percent thought the cameras should stay in place and that the program should be expanded. Another 76 percent support reconvening the senate for a speed camera vote and 54 percent of Republicans agree. Seventeen percent oppose the idea. “There are few things that more than 75 percent of New Yorkers can agree on. Extending and expanding the city’s proven speed safety camera program is one of them,” Transportation Alternatives spokesperson Joe Cutrufo said. The cameras are located in 140 school zones around the city and take photos of the license plate of a speeding vehicle. The state then sends a summons in the mail to the vehicle’s owner. The devices were put in place under a pilot program authorized by the state in 2013. But the program expires July 25. If no action is taken by the state

Deputy Schools Chancellor Cheryl Watson-Harris (at podium) was one of the speakers at a pro-camera rally outside P.S. 215 in Gravesend on July 5. senate, the cameras will be turned off. The cameras act as a deterrent to speeding because they hit drivers
where it hurts, in the wallet, according to transportation safety advocates, who said incidents of speeding have
decreased by 63 percent in the areas that have cameras. But concerns have been expressed by some who oppose expanding the program that the cameras are part of a money grab by the city which takes in the revenue from the speeding tickets paid by motorists. The speed camera bill, which calls for the number of cameras on the streets to be increased from 140 to 290, has 33 co-sponsors in the state senate, according to Transportation Alternatives. “The Republicans in control of the Senate were elected to lead, but they missed their chance. Now they must follow the lead of voters. It’s an opportunity not only to do what’s right, but also to do something that’s quite popular,” Cutrufo said. The speed camera bill is also supported by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio. On Wednesday, July 11 Golden formally called on majority leader John Flanagan to reconvene the Senate and pass the speed camera bill. As of now, the school zone cameras will go dark within just two weeks.

Beat the Heat Wave at Domino Park on the Williamsburg Waterfront continued from page 1
Park visitors can catch a breath of fresh air while lounging on lawns along the river's edge, strolling along a waterfront esplanade or climbing onto an elevated Artifact Walk. When you're walking around trying to catch a breeze, you'll notice artifacts salvaged from the old sugar factory. These include a cluster of 36-foot-high syrup tanks and a pair of 80-foot-tall cranes. You can play volleyball or bocce, though you might want to wait until temps drop a bit. There's a dog run, which is great for neighborhood pooches. If all else fails in terms of cooling down, you can knock back a few margaritas to distract yourself from the heat. They're served at Shake Shack creator Danny Meyer's taco stand, Tacocina, which is located in the middle of the park.
Green Space for Two Trees’ Mega-Development
Domino Park is especially Instagram-worthy late in the day. The sunlight, though scorching, is beautiful. The park is an excellent place to watch the sun set, too. See brooklyneagle.com for additional park pix. James Corner Field Operations designed Domino Park, which is located beside the Williamsburg Bridge and extends from South 5th Street to Grand Street. The landscape architecture firm is best known for its work on the High Line in the Meatpacking District and Chelsea. Domino Park provides green space for Two Trees Management's 11-acre development. The real estate firm is building the project on a site that had sat idle since the sugar-production facility there closed in 2004.
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin Seen Making Out In Domino Park By Gordon Walker Special to the Greenpoint Gazette
Singer Justin Bieber and supermodel Hailey Baldwin were seen strolling and kissing in Williamsburg’s new Domino’s Park, according to TMZ. The reunited couple dated for a brief time in 2015 and apparently found the recently opened Domino Park to be the perfect spot to demonstrate their newfound love. The six-acre waterfront area opened on June 10. They were later seen crossing over into Manhattan and smooching some more at Rockefeller Park

Two Trees Management's mega-development will have about 2,300 apartments, more than 700 of which will be affordable units. The first residential building to be completed is 16-story 325 Kent Ave. It has a hole in its middle like a rectangular donut. Its copper and zinc facade gleams at sunset. SHoP Architects designed it. Behind the Grand Street end of Domino Park, construction is underway on a 42-story mixed-use residential and office building whose address is 260 Kent Ave. COOKFOX Architects designed it. And Two Trees Management is converting the landmarked Havemeyers & Elder Filter, Pan & Finishing House at 292-314 Kent Ave. into an office building with retail space. It will have a barrel-vaulted glass roof. Architecture firm PAU did the makeover design.
The new park stretches for a quarter mile along the East River.

Nixon Endorses Salazar in Bushwick Senate Race By Paula Katinas Greenpoint Gazette
Julia Salazar, a first-time candidate running against incumbent state Sen. Martin Malave Dilan in the Democratic primary on Sept. 13 in Bushwick, has picked up a major endorsement in the race. Last Monday, actress-activist Cynthia Nixon, who is challenging Gov. Andrew Cuomo in the Democratic primary, came to Bushwick to announce that she is backing the upstart Salazar. And Salazar returned the favor, endorsing Nixon in her quest to unseat Cuomo. Like Salazar, Nixon is also making her first run at public office. "Julia and I are both running insurgent, progressive campaigns. Like thousands of other women across the country who are running for office for the first time this year, Julia and I looked at who is in charge and the job they were doing and realized that if we want things to finally change, we’re going to have to step up and do it ourselves,” Nixon said. Nixon’s endorsement of Salazar came a week after she announced that she is backing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new star of the Democratic Party who rocked the political establishment by beating longtime U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in a primary in a Queens congressional district on June 26. The cross-endorsement between Nixon and Salazar took place at a rally in Maria Hernandez Park on Knickerbocker Avenue, the spot where Salazar fist announced her candidacy in April. Salazar and Nixon were joined by leaders of New York Communi-
Julia Salazar, who is running against incumbent state Sen. Martin Malave Dilan in the Sept. 13 Democratic primary, exchanged endorsements with gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon. Photo courtesy of Salazar’s campaign ties for Change, the first organization to get behind Nixon’s candidacy. In her endorsement, Salazar praised Nixon’s proposals to protect tenants from exorbitant rent increases, fix the city’s broken subways, and enact policies to helping the working class. “Cynthia is showing true courage by fighting the real estate interests that have controlled our state for too long. We know that a better world is possible,” Salazar said, a tenant organizer. Salazar, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, is seeking to unseat Dilan, an eight-term incumbent who repre-

sents the State Senate’s 18th District. In addition to Bushwick, the district takes in parts of several neighborhoods in northern Brooklyn, including Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Cypress Hills, City-Line, East New York, Bed-Stuy and Brownsville. Dilan, has served as a state senator since 2002. Prior to that, he served on the City Council for 10 years. He started his political career by running for a seat on his local school board, Community School Board 32, in the late 1970s. In an interview with the Greenpoint Gazette in April when Salazar first an-
nounced her candidacy, Dilan said he did not fear the competition. “My constituents know my record of service,” he told the Gazette. Salazar is not the first member of the left-wing Democratic Socialists of America party to run for public office in New York City. In 2017, the Rev. Khader El-Yateem, a Palestinian church pastor, ran for a City Council seat in Bay Ridge with socialist support. He came in second in the Democratic primary to Justin Brannan. Brannan went on the win the general election.
Reynoso Says He’s Backing Nixon for Gov. Greenpoint Gazette
Progressive gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon has picked up a second major endorsement from a Brooklyn member of the City Council. On July 5, Councilmember Antonio Reynoso (D-Bushwick-parts of Williamsburg) announced that he is backing her bid to unseat incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Nixon, who is challenging Cuomo in the Democratic primary on Sept. 13, had previously won the endorsement of Councilmember Carlos Menchaca (D-Sunset Park-Red Hook). Last Thursday, Nixon and Reynoso stood side by side in front of John D. Wells Middle School in Williamsburg and talked about education reform and affordable housing. Reynoso is a graduate of the school. “Her strong record of fighting for fair funding for schools and improved housing and transportation are just some of the reasons why I'm supporting her candidacy,” said Reynoso, who is the co-chairperson of the City Council’s Brooklyn delegation. “She is standing up to the status quo which has failed to deliver, and standing alongside all New Yorkers." Nixon rose to fame in the 1990s as an actress co-starring with Sarah Jessica Parker in the landmark HBO series “Sex and the City.” She is a longtime education activist who announced earlier this year that she would run for governor. Reynoso praised Nixon’s commitment to provide state funding to establish 500
new schools that would also serve as community centers. In June, Nixon unveiled “Educate NY,” a plan to overhaul the state’s education system from early childhood to col-
lege. The plan includes expanding early childhood learning programs and providing college-bound students from low-income families with the opportunity to attend college for free.

“We must commit to fully funding our schools, and providing bold solutions that harness the power of the community. I am honored to receive the endorsement of Antonio today and look forward to fighting alongside him for schools not jails,” Nixon said.
