WHAT’S NEWS BROOKLYN PUBLIC LIBRARY TO HELP WITH CENSUS COUNT

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Aug. 1 that NYC Census 2020, the city’s Census outreach campaign, is pumping $1.4 million into a partnership between the city and its three library systems — the Brooklyn Public Library, the New York Public Library and the Queens Public Library — to ensure that all New Yorkers are counted. Among other things, libraries will be assisting New Yorkers in filling out the Census form, which will be online for the first time in 2020. Libraries will also help get the word out about the Census to immigrant communities and host informational sessions about the importance of the Census, officials said. “Our partnership with the public library system will help all New Yorkers stand up and be counted,” de Blasio said in a statement.

SUMMER STROLL TAKES OVER THIRD AVENUE

The third night of this year’s annual Summer Stroll series brought crowds to Third Avenue in Bay Ridge between 80th and 90th streets on Friday, Aug. 2. The weather was perfect with a bounty of delicious food, memorable music and entertainment, and an array of activities for kids and adults. Restaurants along the strip had bands playing and outdoor seating so strollers could stop and take in the sights. Bay Ridge’s Summer Stroll is part of DOT’s Weekend Walks program, which was created to allow communities to use streets as public spaces. The event was presented by the Merchants of Third Avenue along with State Sen. Andrew Gounardes and City Councilmember Justin Brannan. For more on this story, turn to page 2.

“Let’s stroll once more…” along Third Avenue BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

“Come let’s stroll” were the opening lines to the popular hit song “The Stroll” by the Diamonds, and appear to sum up the mood for the third night of this year’s annual Summer Stroll series along Third Avenue in Bay Ridge between 80th and 90th streets on Friday, Aug. 2. The weather was perfect with a bounty of delicious food, memorable music and entertainment, and an array of activities for kids and adults. Restaurants along the strip had bands playing and outdoor seating so strollers could stop and take in the sights. Outside Kettle Black at 87th Street, the group Max’s Wheelhouse performed to an enthusiastic crowd. Hom, Cebu and Chadwick’s at 88th Street, Ho’Brah at 86th and Blue Door Souvlakia at 84th Street all had food, drinks and seating for strollers to stop and enjoy a meal. Bay Ridge’s Summer Stroll is part of DOT’s Weekend Walks program, which was created to allow communities to use streets as public spaces. The event was presented by the Merchants of Third Avenue along with State Sen. Andrew Gounardes and City Councilmember Justin Brannan. “I love to see big crowds enjoying themselves for Summer Stroll! People of all ages hit the streets in the beautiful summer weather to enjoy local food, drink and shops,” Gounardes told this paper.

Scenes from last Friday’s Summer Stroll on Third Avenue. Among the highlights were young performers from Narrows Community Theater turning Third Avenue into Neverland by previewing the upcoming production of “Peter Pan the Musical,” Maimonides Medical Center offering healthcare tips at its booth, and Tony Travis and Friends entertaining the crowd with some familiar rock and pop favorites. “Once again the Third Avenue Summer Stroll was a huge success. There were hundreds of families out and about taking in the delicious aromas of local restaurants and listening to the sounds of local bands,” Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus told this paper. “My

ebrooklyn media/Photos by Arthur De Gaeta

favorite part of the night was getting to meet my constituents and their families one-on-one, and getting to hear what’s on their minds.” The next stroll will take place on Friday, Aug. 9 and will run from 68th Street to 80th Street. “The Summer Stroll has become a Bay Ridge tradition and for good reason,” Brannan said. “Friends and neighbors can enjoy being out on the avenue, taking in all that our local businesses have to offer. I look forward to the final summer stroll this Friday. If you haven’t been to one yet, please come out and say hi.” Go to page 15 for more photos from Summer Stroll.

Menchaca endured anxious moments worrying about family in El Paso BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Councilmember Carlos Menchaca’s phone rang constantly on Saturday as news of the deadly mass shooting in El Paso spread. Menchaca, a Democrat who represents Sunset Park and Red Hook, grew up in El Paso and has relatives still liv-

ing in that Texas city on the U.S-Mexico border, including his mother, Magdalena. “It took time to reach my mom,” Menchaca told the Home Reporter on Monday. “It was terrifying. We have a big family and I was able to reach my siblings. But it took awhile for everyone to check in.” He was greatly relieved to

learn that all of his relatives were safe. One of his sisters had a close call, however. “My sister was on her way to the mall where the Walmart is located. But she was slow to get ready to go,” Menchaca said, adding that she didn’t wind up going. Meanwhile, back in Brooklyn, there were so many people reaching out to Menchaca to express concern for his family, the lawmaker felt compelled to post a statement on Twitter to reassure everyone that his relatives were safe. “Thank you for all of your messages. My mom and family are home, safe, but they are in shock,” Menchaca wrote on Twitter. “I want to thank the first responders who continue to monitor the situation.” Menchaca, who was first elected in 2013, is the first Mexican-American to serve on the New York City Council. He won a second term in office in 2017. The local pol urged his Twitter followers to think of the 20 victims who were killed and the 26 others who were injured in the horrific Texas shooting. “Keep El Paso in your thoughts,” he tweeted. “We are going through a lot right now.” On Monday, two days after the shooting, Menchaca’s family members were still too shak-

en to leave their homes, he said. “They don’t feel safe,” he told the Home Reporter. Menchaca has a personal connection to the place where the deadly rampage took place. “I worked in the mall when I was in high school,” he said. The suspect, identified by CNN and other media outlets as Patrick Crusius, 21, allegedly walked into a Walmart store next door to the shopping mall on Saturday and opened fire, killing 20 people and injuring 26.

Less than 30 minutes before the shooting, an anonymous person posted an antiHispanic white nationalist manifesto that federal authorities believe might have been written by Crusius on the imageboard website 8chan. Crusius, who is being held without bail, has been charged with capital murder, a crime punishable by the death penalty. CNN reported that the U.S. Department of Justice is treating the shooting as a case of domestic terrorism

and is said to be considering charging the suspect with hate crimes. The El Paso massacre, along with a shooting on Sunday in Dayton, Ohio, in which a gunman opened fire and killed nine people, shook the nation to its core and led to calls for a ban on assault weapons. Menchaca tried to focus on the positive in the wake of the mass shooting in his hometown. “In El Paso, we take care of our own. And our own is everyone,” he said.

Councilmember Carlos Menchaca was surrounded by mother Magdalena, his sister, Christina Dominguez and other family members at the ceremony where he took the oath of office for his second term in office in early 2018. ebrooklyn media/File photo by Arthur De Gaeta

Brooklyn celebrates Night Out Against Crime

The 68th Precinct’s National Night Out event was held in Shore Road Park at 79th Street. BY VICTOR PORCELLI, JOHN ALEXANDER & JAIME DEJESUS EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Unlike last year, the 62nd precinct, which serves Bensonhurst, Bath Beach and Gravesend, saw sunny, clear skies on Tuesday for its New York Night Out Against Crime, an annual event held at precincts around the city to promote unity between the police and the community. Residents enjoyed the good weather along with free food, bounce houses and informational tables. “It brings the community

and police department together,” Executive Officer of the 62nd Precinct Captain Steve Rubin said. “In the 62nd we’ve always had a good relationship with the community. It’s always a happy event.”    At the 68th Precinct, hundreds gathered at Shore Road Park for the Night Out celebration. Police Captain Robert Conwell greeted the attendees with a solo bagpipe performance of “Amazing Grace” and “God Bless America.” The muchanticipated community event was more like a giant block party with members of the

The Hui’s Lucky Lion Dance Team at the 72nd Precinct.

NYPD, FDNY, elected officials and civic leaders joining forces for a common cause. There were dozens of booths set up promoting various organizations, political candidates, local merchants, banks and hospitals, along with a variety of food and various activities for children. City Councilmember Justin Brannan said, “I have to do a bunch of these National Nights out and they’re all at the same time, but the 68 is always the biggest and the best.”  The 72nd Precinct held their Night Out festivities inside Sunset Park’s soccer field, with

entertainment for kids and adults, speeches from elected officials, food and more. “National Night Out takes on a special meaning when you have families afraid at home that ICE is knocking on the door. Kids are not going to school, people are not going to doctor’s appointments and people are calling in a panic. People can let

off a little steam here, breathe and realize they’re not alone,” said Fifth Avenue BID Executive Director David Estrada. Kids met their favorite characters, including Big Bird, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Pikachu. They also watched Hui’s Lucky Lion Dance Team perform, had their faces painted and played sports.

Cathryn B., who’s lived in the neighborhood for about 30 years, was enjoying all the festivities with her son. “We usually go out and after 15 minutes or so, he asks when we can go home,” she said. “We’ve been here since the beginning and he still hasn’t asked. He’s having fun. It’s good for the community.”

MISSING BROOKLYN BOY FOUND

BROWNSVILLE HIT-RUN DRIVER SOUGHT

BROWNSVILLE — Police are seeking the hit-and-run driver who struck a 66-year-old woman in a crosswalk on Monday morning, according to CBS New York. The woman was crossing the intersection of Belmont and Rockaway avenues in Brownsville when she was hit by a driver who didn’t stop. She was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where she remained in critical condition as of press time. Many residents say that traffic lights are needed at the intersection, which is heavily traveled by cars, buses and trucks. Police are still seeking the burgundy SUV that fled the scene. 

DAY CARE EMPLOYEES CHARGED IN GIRL’S DISAPPEARANCE

GRAVESEND — After a 4-year-old girl who was found wandering alone in Gravesend was reunited with her family, day care driver Anatoly Elkin and matron Galma Zabamaya of the Bim Bam’s Playhouse day care center were charged with failing to exercise control of a minor, according to CBS New York. The girl had fallen asleep in the back seat, and Elkin apparently parked the car near his home after his route was finished. Police said. The girl got out of the van and wandered around before she was found walking around 27th Avenue and Shore Parkway on Monday morning. 

10,000 JOBS AT NAVY YARD

BROOKLYN NAVY YARD — The Brooklyn Navy Yard has surpassed 10,000 jobs for the first time since the city took control of the former U.S. Navy campus in 1966, according to amNewYork. At its peak during World War II, the Navy Yard employed 70,000 workers, many of them in shipbuilding-related jobs. The city reopened the Navy Yard as an industrial incubator in 1969. “It was in the 2000s when the city started investing pretty significant amounts of money in the basic infrastructure that created the conditions that we have today where private companies can and want to establish themselves at the yard,” said David Ehrenberg, head of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp. 

BED-STUY, BAY RIDGE, PARK SLOPE HOMES FEATURED ON BROWNSTONER

BOROUGHWIDE — The most popular listings on Brownstoner this week include a renovated wood-frame house in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a brick row house in Bay Ridge and a small co-op in Park Slope. The wood-frame house, at 47 Chauncey St., was built between 1867 and 1870 as a single-family home. Its porch is one of the three oldest in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. The Bay Ridge row house, at 574 76th St., is located near the new Bay Ridge Parkway-Doctors’ Row Historic District. And the Park Slope co-op, at 305 Eighth Ave., is only two rooms but, according to Brownstoner, “has some well-designed aspects to recommend it.” 

STUDY EXAMINES WHY LOW-INCOME CHILDREN, FAMILIES MOVE OFTEN

CITYWIDE — An article on the City Lab website says low-income children “move around a lot,” whether the neighborhood they’re born in gentrifies or doesn’t gentrify. The article quotes a study conducted by researchers at New York University. Still, low-income families who leave a gentrifying neighborhood “are more likely to change boroughs or change ZIP codes” than families who leave an apartment in a non-gentrifying neighborhood. In any neighborhood, families who live in supported housing are less likely to move. In general, many factors go into why low-income families move around often. 

BROOKLYN FARMACY PROFILED

CARROLL GARDENS — News 12 Brooklyn, on its website, recently profiled Brooklyn Farmacy in Carroll Gardens.

CROWN HEIGHTS — An Amber Alert was canceled Monday night after a 1-year-old boy who had been inside a stolen SUV in Brooklyn was found safe, according to PIX11. Sincere Gilchrist, who was in a car seat in the back of the SUV when it was taken, has been reunited with his mother and father. The SUV, a white Mitsubishi, was taken at Kingston Avenue and Dean Street around 6:50 p.m., police said. The boy’s mother apparently left the SUV running while she went inside a store to buy groceries. 

NIGERIAN-AMERICANS GRAVITATE TO BECOMING ENTREPRENEURS

BED-STUY — Nigerian immigrants in New York City often become entrepreneurs, according to BK Reader, and some of the businesses they found are food- and beverage-related. A case in point is Oluwarotimi Akinnuoye, co-owner of the Bed-Vyne Corporation in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Akinnuoye and several partners founded the corporation, which has three subsidiaries, Bed-Vyne Wine, Bed-Vyne Brew and Bed-Vyne Cocktails, at separate locations in the neighborhood. Akinnuoye told BK Reader that many Nigerian immigrant parents want their children to become either lawyers, doctors or engineers, but Nigerians born in the United States “are a little different. We’re more entrepreneurial, so we believe in trying to figure it out on your own. 

EAST FLATBUSH BUILDERS USE LOOPHOLES TO AVOID PARKING SPACES

EAST FLATBUSH — Many of the developers who are building apartment houses along New York Avenue in East Flatbush are avoiding the city’s requirement to provide parking for residents by using the loophole of assigning two addresses to a single building, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. According to the city’s Zoning Resolution, residential buildings constructed on small lots are required to provide parking for at least half of the units in the building. However, if that amounts to five or fewer parking spaces, the parking requirement can be waived. By using two numbers for each building, developers basically split the building in half — for example, splitting 15 units into two groups of eight. And half of eight is four, which, of course, is within the “five or fewer parking spaces” category. 

ADAMS, COUNCILMEMBER SUPPORT GROUP FOR JUNIOR PILOTS

FLOYD BENNETT FIELD — Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and City Councilmember Alicka Ampry-Samuel (D-Brownsville) joined the Young Airmans Association, a nonprofit group founded by three African-American members of the NYPD who earned pilot’s licenses, to announce a major grant for United Youth Aviators, an aviation summer camp that the group started this year. The ceremony was held outside the hangar for the NYPD Aviation Unit at Floyd Bennett Field, a historic airfield in Marine Park, according to Kings County Politics. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 92 percent of America’s professional pilots and flight engineers are Caucasian. 

VIETNAMESE RESTAURANT COMING TO DUMBO

DUMBO — Em Vietnamese Restaurant, whose main location is on 86th Street in Bensonhurst, plans to open a second

location this fall at 57 Front St. in DUMBO, according to New York Eater. Among Em’s best-known dishes are beef pho, banh mi burger, mango smoothie and hu tieu Nam Vang, a noodle soup with pork, seafood broth and other ingredients, Two Trees Management, which was responsible for the revitalization of DUMBO, is behind the restaurant’s expansion, New York Eater said. 

TIMES EXPLORES BROOKLYN TAILOR SHOPS

BOROUGHWIDE — There are still tailor shops that make custom-made suits in Brooklyn, and The New York Times recently looked at some of them. One such store is that owned by Yosel Tiefenbrun of East Williamsburg, who is both a Chabad rabbi and a tailor. Most of his clients, he says, are in their 30s, and they range from Orthodox Jews to jazz musicians. Another store is Mi Montuno in Prospect Heights, owned by Antonio Brown. “I look at myself as an artist,” said Brown. “I like to mix colors and fabrics to make one-of-a-kind garments. Once I make a design, I don’t do it again.” 

FREEK’S MILL IN GOWANUS SHUTTERED

GOWANUS — Though Freek’s Mill was a Gowanus favorite, the restaurant closed its doors last week, citing staffing issues. The eatery at 285 Nevins St. lost its wine director, general manager and two chefs since opening in 2016. Owner J.T. Stewart, who also runs a construction company full time, says he’s unable to continue on his own, Eater reported. Since its opening, Freek’s Mill’s farm-focused menu won rave-reviews from critics and a two-star review from the Times. 

THE FRANKS TO OPEN PIZZERIA

CARROLL GARDENS — The Franks of Brooklyn and Manhattan restaurant fame are adding a pizzeria to their culinary empire next month. F & F Pizzeria plans to open in a space between Frankies 457 Spuntino and Franks Wine Bar on Court Street in Carroll Gardens, according to The New York Times. Since pizza is not their area of expertise, they are working with baker Chad Robertson, who will be responsible for the dough, and Chris Bianco, of Pizza Bianco in Phoenix. “Everybody is a pizza expert in Brooklyn. We want to do something that is sustainable, delicious, healthy,” said Frank Falcinelli, one of the two Franks, along with Frank Castronovo. 

MINI-POLICE STATION IN HASIDIC WILLIAMSBURG

WILLIAMSBURG — In a traffic island on Lee Avenue in the heart of Hasidic Williamsburg stands a tiny, square-shaped building with a sign saying “Police.” According to Untapped City, the NYPD no longer uses this structure, but in the 1980s it was an official NYPD watch post. The station was established by the local community to have a police presence on the Sabbath, when Orthodox Jews cannot use phones. If there was a problem, community members could walk over to the building and speak to the officer on duty. While the NYPD no longer uses the one-person police station, it may still be used by the Hasidic community for other purposes, since the Untapped Cities author recently saw the lights on at night.

“Peter Pan the Musical” is ready to take flight BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

Peter Pan, the boy who didn’t want to grow up, is ready to charm you in a brand new production from Narrows Community Theater’s summer youth program. The show opens Friday, Aug. 16 and will run for two consecutive weekends. “Peter Pan” is Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie’s most famous work. He wrote it in the form of a 1904 play and a 1911 novel. Both versions tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous yet innocent little boy who can fly, and has many adventures on the island of Neverland that is inhabited by mermaids, fairies, Native Americans and pirates. The Peter Pan stories also involve the characters Wendy Darling and her two brothers, Peter’s fairy Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys and the pirate Captain Hook. The play and novel were inspired by Barrie’s friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family. Barrie continued to revise the play for years after its debut until publication

Cast of “Peter Pan the Musical.” of the play script in 1928. The play’s lyrics are by Carolyn Leigh with additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Morris (Moose) Charlap. It was originally choreographed and adapted by Jerome Robbins. The Narrows Community production is directed by Jason Santel with music direction by Payton Millet and is choreographed by Annie Ester. “Peter Pan has always been

a character and a story towards which I’ve had an affinity,” said Santel. “The boy who won’t grow up, the girl who’s enamored with him, the pirates, the fairies, the mermaids and more. There’s something for everyone! When I joined the incredibly talented team, I knew that we would have to do something unique to make others see the magic on stage.” Santel explained that “‘Peter Pan’ isn’t your typical youth

summer theater experience. “It’s not just kids in oversized suits and dresses reproducing carbon copies of Broadway shows,” he explained. “Our mission has been to create our own show, one that has to be told by young performers. And Neverland is the perfect place to do that.” He said that he was very impressed and surprised every day by the cast’s creativity and skill.

“This show would only be possible if we had a cast of ferociously talented and determined actors, musicians and dancers,” he said, “and I’m so proud to report that this is exactly who we have. “I can guarantee that they will give you a one-of-a-kind performance when you come to see it,” he added. Performances are at the Fort Hamilton Army Base Theater at 101st Street and Fort

Hamilton Parkway on Friday, Aug. 16 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17 at 2 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 18 at 2 p.m.; Friday, August 23 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24 at 2 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. Photo ID is required and tickets are $25 for adults, $20, seniors and students under 21; and $15, children under 12.

A pilgrimage to Walt Whitman’s Clinton Hill home By Lore Croghan brooklyneagle.com

Preservation advocates are using the co-naming of a Clinton Hill street as Walt Whitman Way as an occasion to spotlight their campaign for city landmark designation for the poet’s home, which stands nearby. “This humble house is the birthplace of our cultural Declaration of Independence,” New York University Professor Karen Karbiener, who’s the president of the Walt Whitman Initiative, told INBrooklyn. After the City Council’s July 23 vote to put Whitman’s name on the corner of Ryerson Street and DeKalb Avenue, she led a pilgrimage to Whitman’s house at 99 Ryerson St. for her Columbia University summer students. Whitmanites call it Leaves of Grass House because the poet and his family lived there in 1855, when he published the first version of this now-famous poetry collection. “You guys are about to see the mother lode,” Karbiener told her students on Thursday as they stood up the street from the 1850s wood-frame Italianate home, which is covered with aluminum siding. “He became a poet in this house,” she said. “For many reasons, we would like to make sure it stays here.” Karbiener said a big residential development on the block where Leaves of Grass House is located is a reminder that “these houses can come down.” When she led her students to 99 Ryerson St., she made everybody stay on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street from it. She didn’t want to upset the house’s residents, who don’t like to have people stand right outside the property. From a polite distance, the students scrutinized 99 Ryerson St.

“It looks like any other house. It’s not ostentatious,” said Columbia undergrad Noah Kulick. “Inside, all this creativity emerged from nowhere.” Whitman, who’s widely considered to be one of America’s greatest poets, was an editor of the Brooklyn Eagle in the 1840s. The Ryerson Street house is one of 30-plus places in Brooklyn and Manhattan where he lived. It’s the only one that’s still standing. The Coalition to Save Walt Whitman’s house is campaigning to get the property landmarked this year because it’s the bicentennial of his birthday — and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn Riots, which launched America’s gay civil rights movement. Whitman’s candidly sensual poems made him “iconic in the United States and Europe as one of the first people to openly express the concept of men loving men,” according to a posting on the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project’s website. His Clinton Hill house is one of the oldest buildings in the city that’s associated with a person who would now be considered LGBTQ+, the website says. Both the Walt Whitman Initiative and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project are members of the Coalition to Save Walt Whitman’s House, along with a team of preservation experts.

A look inside the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument The students’ pilgrimage to 99 Ryerson St. started on the corner of DeKalb Avenue and traffic-heavy Flatbush Avenue Extension. “Whitman’s Brooklyn had some of the energy we feel now,” Karbiener told them.

The group made two stops before heading to Leaves of Grass House. First, they walked down DeKalb Avenue to the Brooklyn Hospital Center, which opened as Brooklyn City Hospital in 1845. Whitman, who famously worked as a male nurse during the Civil War, was a volunteer at the hospital in the late 1850s. Right about then, the hospital built a Pathological Hall, which had an operating theater where people could watch surgery being performed.

Up in Fort Greene Park, the Walt Whitman Project’s Greg Trupiano talks about the Revolutionary War.

Professor Karen Karbiener and her students stand in front of the Prison Ship Martyrs’ Monument in Fort Greene Park.

In his work in the hospital, “Walt Whitman really learned to love the body from the inside out,” Karbiener said. Next, she led the group to the top of the hill in Fort Greene Park, which is next to the hospital. There, Greg Trupiano, artistic director and founder of the Walt Whitman Project, talked about the thousands of Colonial patriots who died during the Revolutionary War because they were imprisoned on British ships in Wallabout Bay. A Prison Ship Martyrs Monument to honor them opened in 1908. It’s a 149-foot Doric column. Urban Park Ranger Chris Wood took the students inside the column through a bronze door that’s normally locked up tight. A park for shantytown residents During the students’ visit to the park, operatic tenor Daniel Noone sang the aria “La donna e mobile” from Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto,” which premiered in 1851. Whitman loved Verdi’s works. Fort Greene Park exists because while Whitman was the Eagle’s editor, he relentlessly wrote editorials calling for its creation. He argued that a park was needed to promote the health of the residents of the heavily populated area, including Irish immigrants who lived in a shantytown along Myrtle Avenue, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report about the Fort Greene Historic District says.

Dillon Porter performs excerpts from “Song of Myself.” There were dangerous outbreaks of cholera in the summertime. The 33-acre green space was established in 1847. ‘I stop somewhere waiting for you’ Another high point of the visit to Fort Greene Park was performance artist Dillon Porter’s recitation of excerpts of “Song of Myself,” Whitman’s famous poem. “I am the mate and companion of people, all just as immortal and fathomless as myself,” he said. “I stop somewhere waiting for you.” Before the students left the park and headed to Whitman’s house, they walked down stone stairs to a crypt where the prison ship martyrs’ remains are entombed. Trupiano said only the descendants of the dead are allowed inside the barrel-vaulted chamber filled with caskets. More than 5,700 people have signed a petition calling for Whitman’s Clinton Hill house to be landmarked. Landmarks Preservation Commission staffers turned down Whitmanites’ request to have 99 Ryerson St. calendared for consideration as an individual landmark in 2017. Preservation advocates responded with a 13-page rebuttal. Elected officials including City Councilmember Laurie Cumbo wrote a letter asking that the house be landmarked. It’s located in her district.

Everybody in New York is familiar with Barclays Center. By now, you’ve been to a concert or a Nets basketball game at the Brooklyn arena with the distinctive oculus out front. But unless you live or work in Prospect Heights, where Barclays Center opened in September 2012, you possibly

haven’t seen the other buildings that have been constructed in the 22-acre Atlantic Yards/ Pacific Park mega-development that the arena anchors. One condo building and three rental-apartment buildings can now be found on the mammoth site at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues. The project is in the news again. There’s controversy over a 105,000-square-foot field house and gym planned for the basements of two as-yet unconstructed Atlantic Yards/ Pacific Park buildings because a full-scale environmental review is not planned. Advisory group Atlantic Yards Community Development Corp. will vote on this issue later this month. Grassroots groups such as Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn fought about many aspects of the Atlantic Yards project, as it was originally called. It received government subsidies. And developer Forest City Ratner got the go-ahead from New York State’s Court of Appeals in 2009 to use eminent domain to take over neighborhood properties and incorporate them into the project site. Currently Greenland USA, an entity largely owned by the government of Shanghai, is the principal owner of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park. Greenland transferred development rights to the sites where the field house and gym are planned to TF Cornerstone.

It’s never too early in the day for ice cream at Van Leeuwen’s AtINBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan lantic Yards/Pacific Park shop. The facade is “custom-fired brick,” according to info the architecture firm provided to website ArchDaily.com. The brick is brownish-toned on the lower floors of the building. The facade on the top floors is ghostly white.

According to city Finance Department records, a couple of the highest-price condo sales in this building have been a $4.227 million transaction in December 2017 and a $3.9 million transaction in February 2018.

— Continued on page 13INB —

A CONDO BUILDING DESIGNED BY COOKFOX ARCHITECTS Let’s start this walk at the easternmost boundary of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park which is at the opposite side of the project from Barclays Center. Here, on the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street, stands an 18-story, 278-unit condo building whose address is 550 Vanderbilt Ave. COOKFOX Architects designed it. 12INB Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of August Gazette 8, 2019 • Week of August 8–14, 2019 12INB •• INBROOKLYN INBROOKLYN— —AASpecial SpecialSection SectionofofBrooklyn BrooklynEagle/Heights Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint


Eye on REAL ESTATE

Come stroll around Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park — Continued from page 12INB — When I checked the building’s website the other day, asking prices for available apartments ranged from a $1.5 million twobedroom unit to a $7.715 million four-bedroom penthouse. One of the building’s retail tenants is Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, which does its manufacturing in Greenpoint.

EIGHT ACRES OF GREEN SPACE? NOT YET COOKFOX Architects’ description of 550 Vanderbilt Ave. on ArchDaily.com mentions “eight acres of new, publicly accessible green space that defines the site.” If you expect to see this landscaped acreage, you will be sorely disappointed. Most of it hasn’t been built yet. To find the public space that has been created at 550 Vanderbilt Ave., leave the ice cream shop, turn onto Dean Street and head towards Barclays Center. At the edge of the condo building, there’s an asphalt-covered span beside a construction fence. A small stand of trees provides shade for wooden benches. And in front of 550 Vanderbilt Ave.’s back entrance, there’s landscaping and a reflecting pool with a small waterfall.

A RENTAL BUILDING FOR HOUSEHOLD INCOMES AS HIGH AS $173,415 PER YEAR When you gaze past the construction fence behind 550 Vanderbilt Ave., the next building you can see is on the corner of Dean Street and Carlton Avenue.

This rental building is 535 Carlton Ave.

SHoP Architects also designed this 32-story, 363-apartment For three-bedroom apartments, a six-person household could have an annual income as low as $29,863 for an $817-per-month rental building, whose address is 461 Dean St. Half the apartments are affordable, and half are market-rate. rental or as high as $173,415 for a rental priced at $3,716 per The tower is composed of modular units that were constructed month, the posting shows. at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, brought to the site and stacked on top of one another. ‘SOUND SCULPTURES’ IN I was there in December 2013 when the first unit — which the THE PUBLIC SPACE project architect referred to it as “Mod One” — arrived. It was a The lower floors of 535 Carlton Ave. are clad in red pre-fab studio with a washer and dryer and wood flooring already brick. The facades on the upper floors and the center installed. The modular apartment weighed 30,000 pounds. Spectators of the building are white. There’s a bite-sized piece of publicly accessible cheered when a crane hoisted it into the air and workers set it in space next to a construction fence behind this building, place. too. There are entrances to the green space on Dean Street and Carlton Avenue. Strictly speaking, much of it isn’t green. The public space has wooden benches but no shade trees overhanging them. There’s a small grouping of trees, but there aren’t any benches beside it. And there’s a reflecting pool — sound familiar? Tables and chairs are set up on a blacktopped area. When I was there the other day, the heat was so intense, it left me breathless. There is something nifty on the asphalt-covered area — a set of outdoor musical instruments, or “sound sculptures,” as manufacturer Freenotes Harmony Park calls them. They’re tall aluminum chimes that make lowpitched sounds like gongs when you hit them with mallets, which hang beside them.

There’s a reflecting pool in the publicly accessible green space behind 550 Vanderbilt Ave.

WORK IS UNDERWAY AT SIXTH AVENUE DEVELOPMENT SITES When you’ve seen the public space, return to Dean Street and once again walk towards Barclays Center. In a couple of minutes, you’ll come upon a construction site with frontage on Dean Street, Sixth Avenue and Pacific Street. Its address in city Buildings Department records is 37 Sixth Ave. But architect Jonathan Marvel refers to it as 664 Pacific St. So does The Brodsky Organization, which has the development rights to the site. Marvel Architects’ plan calls for a 26-story, 323unit apartment tower with a 100,000-square-foot public school in the base of the building, as I reported when the firm first unveiled its design. At nearby 18 Sixth Ave. on the corner of Atlantic Avenue, The Brodsky Organization began work in the spring on an 859-unit, mixed-income rental apartment building designed by Perkins Eastman, Real Estate Weekly reported.

These handsome rowhouses stand on the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street across from Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park. When you stroll down there, you will discover its address is 535 Carlton Ave. It is part of the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project. COOKFOX Architects also designed this 18-story building, which has 298 apartments. All of them are rentals, designated as affordable units for low-, moderate- and middle-income residents. This is important because when Atlantic Yards was in the planning stages, Forest City Ratner agreed to build 2,250 units of affordable housing by May 2025. The Carlton Avenue apartments were offered through a lottery process managed by the New York City Housing Development Corp. Income levels ranged from $20,126 per year for a studio with a rent of $548 per month to $104,775 per year for a $2,137-permonth studio, an online posting indicates.

SHOP ARCHITECTS DESIGNED THIS SIXTH AVENUE RENTAL BUILDING

There is a completed Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park building on Sixth Avenue. It is on the corner of Dean Street, right next to Barclays Center. SHoP Architects designed this 23-story, 300-apartment rental property, whose address is 38 Sixth Ave. It looks like it’s made of giant blocks, some patterned with red and gray, some silver, others white. All the apartments at 38 Sixth Ave. are affordable units.

A MODULAR TOWER ON FLATBUSH AVENUE A little bit further down Dean Street, you’ll find a tower with a shiny red facade. It’s on the corner of Flatbush Avenue and is surrounded on both sides by Barclays Center.

EXTERMINATORS (PESTS AND BUGS):

• Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour. Scary to think of a cockroach running to chase someone. If a cockroach were the size of a human, there top speed will be over 200 mph. • The total weight of all the termites in the world our weighs the total weight of all humans. 

CHORES (HANDYMAN):

• Your kitchen sink is dirtier than your toilet seat! That is because people focus on cleaning and disinfecting the toilet more than they do on the sink. Meanwhile, E.coli thrives more in a wet and moist sink. • Bunker down your lid! Whenever you flush your toilet, “toilet plumes” or small waste particles get sprayed into the air, which you can inhale or can attach itself on your toothbrush. • An average mattress contains anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites. That’s it. We’re sleeping on the floor from now on. 

WORKING (JOBS WANTED, READY FOR WORK):

• Records show that the workers who built the pyramids at Giza were paid in bread and beer, about 3-4 loaves of bread and four liters of beer. • Leonardo Da Vinci is credited with writing the first resume and Julius Caesar invented the employee referral system. 

HEALTH

• Brass door knobs automatically disinfect themselves in 8 hours. • Laughing 100 times is equivalent to 15 minutes of exercise on a stationary bicycle. • Hey, good lookin’! Watching yourself exercise in a mirror can make a workout go by faster and easier. 

ROOFING & PLUMBING

• Water pipes used to be made out of lead. If you don’t believe us, trust science, because the periodic table element for lead is ‘Pb’, which derives from the word plumbing, plumbing. In latin, plumbing comes from the word “plumbum”, which means ‘lead’. • The hottest place on Earth is Death Valley, California. This means that residents roofs heat deteriorate quickly from ultraviolet radiation, extreme temperatures, and exposure to harsh weather. • In 2002, renovations were made to the roof of The White House to heat any water from solar rays. The water is then diverted to a hot tub and outdoor swimming pool.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 7, 1945

ON AUG. 7, 1892, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Fall River, Mass. — The latest development in the Borden murder, relating particularly to the theory of poisoning, has given way to discussion among the people today to talk of the funerals, which took place this morning. As early as 9 o’clock the house was surrounded by a great crowd of curiosity seekers. Reporters, artists, photographers and policemen were active among them. Shortly after 10:30, Mr. Morse came from the house and talked freely with a group of reporters. He said it was a terrible thing to be suspected and shadowed as he has been, but he courts the fullest investigation and is anxious and willing to do all that he can to trace the perpetrators of the great crimes. He said Miss Lizzie Borden’s health was in about the same condition as it was last Thursday afternoon. She did not mingle with the family to any great extent.”  ON AUG. 7, 1916, the Eagle reported, “Microscopic examination of various sorts of insects that may be found in the city at this season will be made by a corps of thirty or forty naturalists to determine, if possible, if infantile paralysis is being spread by insect carriers. Health Commissioner Emerson, in announcing today that this work would be undertaken, said that the naturalists would be secured by federal health officers. Flies, mosquitoes, bugs and all kinds of winged and crawling insects will be subjected to microscopic and other tests in the hope of finding what insects, if any, are carriers of the infantile paralysis germ.”  ON AUG. 7, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Washington, (U.P.) — For good or ill, man has unlocked the incalculable power of the atom. He has entered upon the atomic age. His first use of this power — the same that energizes the sun and the stars — has been to make a bomb. It is the most terrible engine of destruction ever conceived. It may end the Japanese war soon. If the Japanese decide to fight on, it will demolish their homeland. But when the bomb’s work is done, its makers hope to convert its power to the arts of peace and to the enforcement of peace. Upon realization of this hope hangs the fate of humanity. Atomic power could remake the world; it also could destroy it. Its power to destroy has been made manifest to the Japanese … Yesterday President Truman gave the enemy another chance to accept the surrender-or-be-destroyed ultimatum of Potsdam. ‘If they do not accept our terms,’ he said, ‘they may expect a rain of ruin from the air the like of which has never been seen on this earth.’”  ON AUG. 7, 1946, the Eagle reported, “Boston (U.P.) — John F. Kennedy, handsome, blue-eyed son of the former Ambassador to Britain, revived a family tradition when he ran for nomination for Congress — and won. Though his father never held an elective post, Kennedy’s two grandfathers — former Mayor John F. Fitzgerald and the late U.S. Senator Patrick J. Kennedy — were men of winning ways, both in and out of politics. Kennedy, 29 and a Harvard graduate, decided to enter politics while lying on a hospital bed, recovering from wounds suffered as a PT boat skipper during the war. ‘It was either politics or the newspaper business,’ he said. ‘And the Kennedys always have been interested in politics. That probably tipped the scales.’ Kennedy won the Democratic nomination for U.S. Representative from the 11th Massachusetts District, and since nomination is tantamount to election, he undoubtedly will succeed 71-year-old James M. Curley in Congress.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 8, 1945

ON AUG. 8, 1920, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Boston — Attorney General J. Weston Allen, who is conducting an investigation of the foreign exchange business of Charles Ponzi, announced today that he had furnished transcripts of the interviews he has had with Ponzi to federal authorities both in this city and in Washington, together with all information his office has obtained. The attorney general sought another interview with Ponzi yesterday, but the head of the Securities Exchange Company failed to appear and was quoted as saying he would not again visit the State House. In commenting upon this, Mr. Allen said that he had no authority to force Ponzi to appear or to compel him to give testimony ‌ Ponzi repeated today his announced intention of starting a new business Monday under the name of the Charles Ponzi Company, through which he has declared he will establish a chain of banks and conduct a general import and export business.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 8, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Guam (UP) — Tokyo conceded today that most of Hiroshima had been destroyed completely by a single American atomic bomb Monday and said blasted and blistered corpses ‘too numerous to count’ littered the ruins. ‘The impact of the bomb was so terrific that practically all living things, human and animal, were literally seared to death by the tremendous heat and pressure engendered by the blast,’ one Tokyo broadcast said. American reconnaissance photos confirmed that four and one-tenth square miles — 60 percent of the built-up area — of Hiroshima had vanished almost without trace in the world’s greatest man-made explosion. Unofficial American sources estimated Japanese dead and wounded might exceed 100,000 ‌ As Tokyo painted a fearful picture of the catastrophe, some sources saw a possibility that Japan might reconsider her rejection of the Allied demand for her surrender before she is invaded. ‘It shouldn’t take the Japanese long to think this over,’ one ranking officer said. ‘We plan to present them with bursting atoms as often as possible.’â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 8, 1951, the Eagle reported, “Tehran (U.P.) — Optimism ran high at the start of formal Anglo-Iranian oil talks today and Britain’s chief negotiator disclosed he already has submitted an official outline for a final settlement. Two key Iranian negotiators expressed confidence that the dispute over Iran’s nationalization of Britain’s huge oil interests would be settled peaceably. They said Britain’s friendly attitude at a preliminary session Monday night was a good sign. At the same time, Britain’s Lord Privy Seal Richard Stokes, chief of the British delegation, said the general atmosphere both here and in the oil port of Abadan had ‘vastly improved.’ Stokes disclosed that he had presented a memorandum to Iran, containing Britain’s general ideas for settling the oil dispute. The British delegation, he said, was awaiting Iran’s reply before getting down to details. The only ominous note today came in Iran’s official demand that Britain recall and reprimand its consul at Khoramshahr, an oil town, for asking the recall of two Iranian oil officials as ‘undesirable elements.’â€?

OPINION

BUTTER AND CHEESE ISSUES

T

he White House last Friday retweeted to its almost 19 million Twitter followers an official letter authored by Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis and signed by all the members of the New York State Assembly Republican caucus, urging Congress to move forward and adopt the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement negotiated by President Donald Trump. The letter says that “currently New York exports over $18.5 billion to Mexico and Canada annually. The newly negotiated agreement will address the imbalances of NAFTA allowing New York and

A

America businesses and workers to thrive as a result. Specifically, the agriculture industry in New York will secure much greater access to the Canadian market if this agreement is ratified by Congress. This is especially important for our dairy farmers, who previously were unable to access the Canadian market due to the Canadian milk pricing program. During this time of hardship for our dairy farmers, expanding the market could revitalize the industry and save many farms from closure.” In recent years, closures of smaller family-owned dairy operations has become

a big issue in the larger dairy-producing states of which New York is in the top 15. With these closures, comes higher costs for dairy-related products such as milk, yogurt and cheese, plus job losses and closures in the many businesses that support the dairy industry. Most of the blame for the slow movement of this agreement in Washington is being placed on the shoulders of the House of Representatives, which seems primarily focused on politics 24/7 with no time remaining for governing. The Congress needs to find the time to address this agreement.

COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR

In recent years, closures of smaller family-owned dairy operations has become a big issue in the larger dairy-producing states of which New York is in the top 15.

*** As a side note on the special nature of the Trump/ Malliotakis relationship, next month, Sean Spicer, the president’s former spokesperson, will be highlighting a fundraiser for her

UNDER THE GUN

n ele m e nt a r y school. A high school. A college campus. An office. A church. A synagogue. A military base. A movie theater. A bar. A nightclub. An outdoor concert. A food festival. A park. A Walmart. Mass shootings can happen anywhere. As of August 5, this year had seen 217 days but 257 such incidents, killing 285. After 387 deaths from mass shootings last year, America is on pace to far exceed that number in 2019. Twenty-five people have been injured or killed in Brooklyn’s four mass shootings this year, with three of these tragedies occurring in a one-month span this summer. Motivation and methods vary, but doing nothing and expecting different outcomes is madness. Gun deaths have increased almost 20 percent from 2012 levels and may exceed 40,000 in 2019. Deaths from car crashes, for that

matter, have been declining and there may be fewer of them than gun deaths this year. Twenty-one states already see more deaths from guns than road accidents. Seatbelts in the 1960s. Anti-lock brakes in the 1970s. Seat belt laws and breathalyzers in the 1980s. Airbags in the 1990s. Road safety has improved through technological innovations, followed by legislation to mandate those technologies be used. That has not been the case with firearms. When Smith & Wesson began pursuing smart gun technology in the 1990s, the NRA led a successful campaign to vilify the company and hurt its profits. Nearly all Americans support background checks on all gun purchases, including over 90 percent of gun households. Seven out of 10 favor restricting access to assault weapons. Yet, the will of the vast majority is ignored.

The newly blue New York State Senate helped pass a package of sensible gun restrictions in its first month in session. A red flag law bans those deemed a threat to themselves or others from possessing firearms. New background checks and waiting periods for purchases, banning teachers and administrators from carrying guns in schools, a statewide buyback program to get illegal guns off the streets, and the ban of bump stocks were also included. Nearly all Americans support background checks on all gun purchases, including over 90 percent of gun households. Seven out of 10 favor restricting access to assault weapons. Yet, the will of the vast majority is ignored. California banned assault weapons, but proximity to neighboring states with lax laws limits its effectiveness.

congressional campaign. The event is on Monday, Sept. 9 at the Old Bermuda Inn on Staten Island. Those who are interested can go to Nicole’s congressional campaign website or to her Nicole for Congress Facebook page. *** There were a number of gaffes and cringe-worthy moments during the two days of Democratic debates last week. I suspect many Democratic Party activists will be happy to have a greatly reduced field for the next debate. Mayor de Blasio is not likely to make the cut and

will, after months mostly on the campaign trail, need to return to New York City. Many feel as I do that he has lost interest in running New York City. If that is the case, he should consider retiring. Of the many cringe-worthy moments, the one that got my attention was Congressmember Tulsi Gabbard’s statement that ended with “Our president is supporting al Qaeda.” Gabbard, with that statement, succeeded in reaching a new low in Democratic presidential campaign stupidity. And that is not an easy thing to do these days.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

The 19-year-old shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival couldn’t legally gamble in Nevada, but he could buy an assault weapon there. New York not only has strict gun laws, it borders states with similar restrictions. But almost anyone, anywhere, can buy a weapon of war if he or she is willing to spend a day driving. Suicides account for nearly two-thirds of gun deaths and require immediate attention. Mass shootings may make up a very small percentage, but there are proven impediments, with broad support, that can at least mitigate their death toll. The Federal Assault Weapons Ban was the last national gun control bill passed and that was 25

years ago. Seventeen of the 25 deadliest mass shootings have occurred since it expired in 2004. The FBI director recently testified that most domestic terrorism arrests are now tied to white supremacy. White nationalism-fueled violence has motivated an increasing number of young men to carry out domestic acts of terror. It cannot be denied that there has been an increase in rhetoric from people in high positions that dehumanizes certain groups in a way white nationalists identify with. President Donald Trump has referred to immigrants as an “infestation” that is “breeding;” terms typically reserved for vermin. Earlier this year, when he asked rally-goers of immigrants, “How do you stop these people?” and an audience

member said, “Shoot them!” he laughed and replied, “That’s only in the panhandle you can get away with that.” Trump’s references to immigrants as an “invasion” perpetrated by “the Democrat Party” because it supports “open borders,” is found throughout the El Paso shooter’s manifesto. His screed warned that a more Hispanic population in Texas will make it “a Democrat stronghold,” a few weeks after his Senator, John Cornyn, bemoaned that “Texas gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident last year.” We accept reasonable restrictions on free speech as it pertains to public safety (not shouting fire in a crowded theater). It’s time we all DEMAND reasonable restrictions on access to guns.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

2019 Summer Stroll on 3rd concludes Friday, Aug. 9

Proposed Business ‘Investment’ District would ensure future of Stroll, holiday lights and more along busy thoroughfare

The Merchants of Third Avenue’s highly successful Friday night Summer Stroll on 3rd program will come to an end, at least for this year, on Aug. 9, but not before thousands enjoy the piazza-like atmosphere. There will be plenty of shopping, dining and socializing. What most folks may not realize is that if it weren’t for the yearly volunteer leadership of attorney Bob Howe (he’s headed the Merchants of Third Avenue for more than 20 years), Merchants Co-Treasurer Brian Chin, Festival Manager Chip Cafiero, Summer Stroll on 3rd coordinator Ilene Sacco and a number of dedicated Bay Ridgeites, there would be no Friday night strolls. Supporters point out that Bay Ridge’s two other major shopping thoroughfares — Fifth Avenue and 86th Street — already benefit from being their own Business Improvement Districts. The consensus is that these have had a major effect on improving cleanliness and security, while giving small businesses an extra tool as they work to stave off the huge and unfair competition of mail-order giants. Just like you can’t grow tomatoes on a brick, the same applies to launching a successful urban program like the Summer Stroll on 3rd, which, though a part of the city’s Weekend Walks initiative, would never have gotten off the ground without the pre-existing fertile field cultivated so well and so long by Howe and company. How long can this garden grow? How long can Third Avenue stores and causes continue to weather the maelstrom of tax-dodging Amazon and other mail-order behemoths that drive out overtaxed small businesses that depend on foot traffic to survive? The answer may be near at hand as Howe and his team sow the seeds of a Third Avenue Business Improvement District. A Third Avenue BID would ensure the continuity of the strolls — perhaps even increasing the number from four to six or even eight

each summer — well into the future. One additional return would be a modern, interactive website that would serve hundreds of businesses, property owners and untold Greater Bay Ridge residents who realize that a solid business atmosphere is an essential lynchpin required to sustain a community wherein volunteers pitch in for strolls, festivals, receptions, cleanups and more.

Strong support voiced for BID at public St. Mary’s Church meeting

Based on the detailed report by longtime Bay Ridge resident John Alexander in last week’s edition of this newspaper, the public BID meeting called by Howe and held at St. Mary’s Church on Ridge Boulevard saw the proposal for what Howe describes as the Third Avenue Business “Investment” District win wide approval. It’s no surprise, we might add. “A BID will only enhance the neighborhood,” said the aforementioned Chin, a vice president at Northfield Bank. “It will give us more visibility. [We] have a website planned ... which would allow us to market the various restaurants and just about all of the businesses in a very professional and wide-reaching way.” The Third Avenue BID Steering Committee is composed of a number of local owners and residents, including Co-Chair Sheila Brody, Green Spa & Wellness Center; Co-Chair Robert Howe, Law Office of Robert Howe; Lolita Andrade, Hometown Properties; Chip Cafiero, Bay Ridge Festival organizer; Antonio Cefalo, McLaughlin & Sons; Brian Chin, Northfield Bank; Jeanine Condon, Charmed; Al Corhan, Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn; Bobby Daquara, Greenhouse Café; Pat Gilbride, Edward Jones; Phil Guarnieri, Empire State Bank; Vincent Ianelli, Third Avenue property owner; Wade Jabour, Jabour Realty; Trey Jenkins, Third Avenue resident; Jacqueline Juliano, Patsy’s
