The allocation, secured by State Sen. Andrew Gounardes, is the final piece of the funding puzzle that will allow the Guild for Exceptional Children to renovate its headquarters at 260 68th St. The construction project will include upgrading an old elevator, modernizing heating and airconditioning systems and making other adjustments to bring the two-story building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, GEC officials said. The goal is to accommodate better clients who are senior citizens, according to Joseph Riley, the GEC's executive director and CEO. For more on this story, see page 2.

TRIBUTE TO A HERO
Councilmembers Justin Brannan and Mark Treyger are asking the Public Service Commission to investigate Con Edison in the wake of service disruptions in Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods like Gravesend, Bath Beach and Coney Island, requesting that the loss of electric service in the area be part of an investigation previously requested by Gov. Andrew Cuomo with respect to the Manhattan blackout that occurred earlier this month. "Frequently, service outages have occurred in Gravesend, Bath Beach, and Dyker Heights as well, and our offices have documented and met with Con Edison in the past, but they continue to happen. Residents need answers and we demand answers to this recurrent event," Brannan and Treyger said. For more on this story, see brooklynreporter.com.

GEC renovation project gets $750,000 boost BY PAULA KATINAS
A major Bay Ridge nonprofit institution that has long been in need of upgrades to its main building can now move forward with the construction work after State Sen. Andrew Gounardes secured $750,000 in state funding for the project. The $750,000 was the final piece of the funding puzzle that will allow the Guild for Exceptional Children to renovate its headquarters at 260 68th St. The construction project will include upgrading an
old elevator, modernizing heating and air-conditioning systems and making other adjustments to bring the two-story building into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, GEC officials said. The goal is to accommodate better clients who are senior citizens, according to Joseph Riley, the GEC’s executive director and CEO. “This is work we have long needed,” Riley told the Home Reporter. Under the current configuration of the building, many of the programs the GEC runs
are located on the second floor. Several elderly clients have expressed concern about having to take an elevator or climb stairs to get to the classes and programs. The renovation will allow the GEC to move educational and recreational programs down to the ground floor to make accessibility easier for older clients. The building hasn’t been renovated in 45 years, GEC officials said. The GEC, which was founded in the late 1950s by a group of parents of developmentally disabled children, provides educa-

tion, job training, housing, recreational activities and therapy to hundreds of clients and their families in several Brooklyn neighborhoods. Roberta Lopez, a GEC client, said she is happy that the 68th Street building is finally getting a facelift. “I like this building but not so much. It needs work,” she told the Home Reporter. The renovation project has been a long time coming, according to GEC officials. The GEC had already received $1.85 million from the City Council and raised an additional $200,000 on its own, but was unable to proceed with the expensive renovation. “The project was stalled,” Riley said. That is until Gounardes secured $750,000 in the 20192020 state budget. Gounardes, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge and other communities in Southwest Brooklyn, visited the GEC on July 17 to make the big announcement. “I have good news for you guys. We were able to get money from the state to help with the renovations,” he told a group of clients, staff members and administrators. The group cheered. “The Guild for Exceptional Children is a beloved institution,” Gounardes later said in a statement. “Those of us who grew up in Bay Ridge have grown up deeply admiring and respecting their work. The GEC promotes equal rights and dignity for those with special needs so they can enjoy a great quality

During his visit, Gounardes was given a tour of the building
and made a stop at the GEC’s art studio to watch clients work on projects. He also sat with clients like Joann Sapia and Ajuwon Newton and heard from them about the GEC’s programs. “We do a lot of things here,” Sapia told Gounardes. Newton said the building renovation is important to the clients. “It needs to be updated. We have to be safe,” he said.
Bay Ridge man allegedly turned ISIS sniper charged in federal court BY NOAH GOLDBERG
A Brooklyn man who ditched the borough in 2013 to fight for ISIS was charged Friday with providing material support to the terrorist organization, federal prosecutors announced. Ruslan Maratovich Asainov lived in Brooklyn from 1998 to 2013, when he traveled to Turkey and then subsequently to Syria, allegedly to join the Islamic State. Asainov was a sniper for ISIS and attempted to recruit more Americans to the group, according to prosecutors. He rose through the ranks,
becoming an “emir” in charge of teaching other ISIS fighters to use weapons, federal prosecutors said. The criminal complaint unsealed against Asainov did not state whether or not he killed anyone in Syria. “We are the worst terrorist organization in the world that has ever existed,” Asainov messaged an associate in 2015, according to prosecutors. Asainov was seen by District Judge Steven Gold in Brooklyn Federal Court Friday afternoon. He was detained by the Syrian Democratic Forces before being transferred into FBI cus-
tody, according to prosecutors. “The defendant, a naturalized U.S. citizen residing in Brooklyn, turned his back on the country that took him in and joined ISIS, serving its violent ends in Syria and attempting to recruit others to its cause,” said Richard Donoghue, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of
Brooklyn federal court
New York. In happier times, Asainov lived in Bay Ridge. According to the criminal complaint, Asainov sent a photo to another associate with a photo of three dead soldiers, saying, “We are dying here.” One of the soldiers was “wearing a patch that identi-
fies him as an ISIS fighter,” according to the complaint. Asainov allegedly attempted to recruit a confidential informant who had known him since 2008 to join ISIS in Syria. He told the informant that if he joined ISIS, he would get a job, housing, food and $50 per month, according to prosecu-
tors. He allegedly asked the confidential informant to send him $2,800 to buy a scope for his rifle, though the informant did not send the money. In another message, he told the confidential informant that even “grandmothers” were joining ISIS, the complaint says.

Rose heads to border to visit migrant detention centers BY PAULA KATINAS
Rose added that he supported the Humanitarian Standards for Individuals in CBP Custody Act, a bill recently passed by the Committee on Homeland Security to ensure proper treatment of migrants at the border. Rose was the object of protesters’ anger during a proimmigrant demonstration outside his Bay Ridge office on July 2. Protesters decried the conditions in the immigrant detention centers and demanded that Rose visit the U.S.Mexico border. Edwards-Jenks, a spokesperson for Rose, said the congressmember’s visit to the border was not a response to the protesters.

U.S. Rep. Max Rose, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, traveled to the Rio Grande Valley on Friday to get a first-hand look at the conditions under which undocumented immigrants are being held by the federal government. Rose, a Democrat representing Southwest Brooklyn and Staten Island, was part of a bipartisan delegation of House members making the trek to the border. “Our tour was a powerful experience and seeing the cri-
sis first-hand only reaffirms what we all know and have seen reported, human beings are suffering in our custody,” Rose said in a statement. The lawmakers visited Customs and Border Patrol facilities around McAllen, Texas. The delegation also scheduled a stop at a shelter run by the Department of Health and Human Services to meet with people working on the ground. “The administration has presented a false choice as if the greatest country in the world cannot keep our nation safe while caring for those fleeing violence and I refuse to play along,” Rose said.
U.S. Rep. Max Rose called the tour of detention facilities, “a powerful experience.”

How Bay Ridge coped with scorching heat BY PAULA KATINAS
Despite the excessive heat warning, the Summer Stroll on 3rd event went on without a hitch with thousands of people walking along a car-less, 10-block stretch of Third Avenue between Bay Ridge Avenue and 80th Street to enjoy live music and sidewalk cafes. The stroll is sponsored by the Merchants of Third Avenue. Leaders of community institutions, like the Bay Ridge Center, extended their hours of operation and reached out to elderly residents to urge them to stay indoors over the weekend. “We stayed open longer, until 6 p.m. We normally close at 4,” said Todd Fliedner, deputy executive director of
the Bay Ridge Center, a senior citizen program at 411 Ovington Ave. The center’s leaders kept the place open to give older adults the chance to cool off in an air-conditioned space. Bay Ridge showed its community spirit during the heat wave, according to Councilmember Justin Brannan. “The brutal heat over the weekend didn’t stop Bay Ridge from coming out to Third Avenue Summer Stroll on Friday or catching a movie at Dyker Beach Park on Saturday night … my office was in constant contact with city agencies to address any issues related to the heat or anything else that came up,” said Brannan. “I think all in all, people handled it very well,” he added.

Heroic first responder Christopher Cranston died of a 9/11 related illness on Saturday, July 20, at the age of 48. The retired NYPD detective spent his career in Brooklyn’s 60th and 62nd Precincts before retiring in 2013. Cranston worked for six months helping in the Ground Zero recovery efforts following the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City. He worked on the pile at the twin towers for months before helping sift through the ashes at the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island. Christopher Edward Cranston was born on Christmas Day, 1970, the seventh and youngest child of a large Irish family in the Kensington section of Brooklyn. He attended Immaculate Heart of Mary Grammar School and Ditmas Junior High School, and graduated from Edward R. Murrow High School. Cranston became a New
York City police officer in 1991 and, as a rookie, was assigned to the 62nd Precinct in Bensonhurst. Cranston met his wife Clare Owens in 1996 and the couple married in 1999 before settling in Breezy Point to raise their five children. After 9/11, Cranston spent the next six months at Ground Zero, the morgue and the Staten Island landfill searching through the rubble for anything to give some closure to families who lost a loved one. According to his wife, “He worked six days a week for 12 hours a day, leaving little to no time for his family or even to rest.” In 2001, Cranston was promoted to detective. He was assigned to the 60th Precinct in 2003, where he worked until his retirement ten years later. In July 2018, he learned that he had contracted colorectal cancer due to his work at Ground Zero. Cranston fought hard for legislation extending the 9/11 Victims’ Compensation Fund, which passed the U.S. Senate on July 23.

Lawmakers offer support to immigrant communities targeted by ICE raids BY KELLY MENA KELLY@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
Local lawmakers took to the streets of Sunset Park on Sunday, July 21 to combat the panic in immigrant communities in the wake of ongoing raids by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez and Councilmember Carlos Menchaca, who represent the area on the federal and local levels, respectively, went into the heart of the largely immigrant neighborhood to check in on families and reassure non-U.S. citizen residents of
their rights. Sunset Park has been the most-targeted area across the city in the past week for ICE, accounting for half of the eight so-far confirmed raids across the city. More than 47 percent of residents are foreign-born in Community District 7, which encompasses Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace, according to data from the New York City Planning Department. “Today is just ‘Know Your Rights,’ and part of what we’re trying to do is show that there are government officials who are in
support with them [immigrants] — but this isn’t just happening in one part of the neighborhood, it’s happening everywhere,” Menchaca told this paper. “If one person is attacked, everyone is attacked.” The pair started at the Eighth Avenue subway station at the center of the area’s Chinatown, where they passed out “Know Your Rights” information to straphangers. The Chinese-American population in the area has been growing in recent years, with city data showing that 32.4 percent of individuals identify as Asian.
After a visit to a recreation center, the lawmakers stopped at St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Church for Sunday morning mass with a congregation of Latinx immigrants and families. “The most important thing is if someone has the potential to get detained by ICE, that you have a plan. That you have the phone number of a lawyer, or my office, or that of [Councilmember] Carlos Menchaca, if you have a problem…we want to prevent disinformation and for people to know their rights,” Velazquez told the congregation.

Soaring temperatures heat up Third Avenue Summer Stroll BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
Even with 90° temperatures on Friday night, July 12, the crowds came out for the second weekend of the Third Avenue Summer Stroll. From 68th Street to 80th Street strollers enjoyed a wide variety of food, music and entertainment, not to mention endless activities for the children. Restaurants along the strip had bands playing and outdoor seating so strollers could stop and take in the sights. Outside the Greenhouse Café at 79th Street, a band played while people danced in the street; and tables were packed in front of Salty Dog at Bay Ridge Parkway. 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 City Councilmember Justin Brannan and State Sen. Andrew Gounardes. “Summer Stroll was a blast!” enthused Gounardes. “It was a hot one, but we had a good crowd out on Third Avenue enjoying local food, drinks and shops. I’m proud that my team could help organize these beloved strolls so our community can let loose and have fun.” Highlights of the stroll included a crowd-pleasing dance performance in front of Dimensions in Dance at 76th Street and a variety of artwork for sale all along the

and community leaders walking along the avenue were Brannan; Gounardes; Assemblymembers Mathylde Frontus and Nicole Malliotakis; New York State Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kassar; former State Sen. Marty Golden; Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe; Brian Chin, VP and branch manager at Northfield Bank; Hon. Matt D’Emic; and Chuck Otey, one of the founders of the Summer Stroll and executive secretary of the Merchants of Bay Ridge. Chin called the stroll a “wonderful community activity,” adding, “These strolls bring the community together and help our local small businesses.” Brannan was especially impressed with the turnout. “It’s really so cool to see how far Summer Stroll has come,” Brannan told this paper. “We struggled in the early days to get it right. It took a lot of work from a lot of people behind the scenes. Not to mention, many people were originally against the idea and now everyone seems to love it. It’s become just another great neighborhood tradition, rain or shine,” he continued. “Even during an insane heatwave, we had a great crowd and everyone had a good time. Just a great way to spend a summer Friday with your neighbors, supporting our many great local businesses and non-profit organizations.”

News Around the Boro BAY RIDGE — U.S. Rep. Max Rose (D-Southern Brooklyn-Staten Island) last week visited the Rio Grande Valley in Texas as part of a bipartisan Homeland Security delegation to examine migrants’ conditions at the Mexican border, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. The group visited facilities near McAllen Texas, including a Border Patrol station, processing center and holding facility. They also visited a Department of Health and Human Services shelter and let with local immigration activists. “Our tour was a powerful experience, and seeing the crisis firsthand only reaffirms what we all know and have seen reported — that human beings are suffering in our custody,” said Rose. BOROUGHWIDE — The MTA plans to cut back service on three Brooklyn bus routes starting this fall, according to the Brooklyn Paper. Commuters on the B38, which runs from Bushwick to Downtown, will wait up to three minutes longer for buses on weekdays. The B43, which runs along Myrtle Avenue, will have fewer buses on weekdays except during evening rush hours. The B15, which goes from Bedford-Stuyvesant to JFK Airport, will have longer waits at middays on weekdays. To mitigate the loss of some buses, the MTA is adding longer, articulated buses to the B38. CITYWIDE — NYCHA Federal Monitor Bart Schwartz released his first report Monday, according to NBC4. This team found that there have been 18 youths with high levels of lead in their blood so far this year. “NYCHA management has been less cooperative with respect to lead paint,” the report said. NYCHA’s calculations of where children under the age of 6 live within the city projects, the report continued, are based on unreliable or out-of-date information. “When we initially pressed on these and other issues, we met with resistance,” the report added. CROWN HEIGHTS — Switching problems underneath the Eastern Parkway subway’s Franklin Avenue station, where the 5 and 2 trains branch off from the 4 and 3, caused some riders to be stuck underground for about two hours on Monday afternoon, according to Patch. Lights were on in the train and the air conditioning was working, said several straphangers’ tweets, but riders still were frustrated. The situation also caused long lines at other stations as people waited for trains to come in. The MTA warned riders to expect delays on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 trains as far away as Manhattan and the Bronx and suggested the B, Q, D and R trains as an alternative. DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A man suspected of being a serial subway exhibitionist who has repeatedly been seen touching his nether regions while sucking his thumb has been arrested, according to the New York Post. Suspect James Hunt was chased down and tased at the Court Street-Borough Hall station in Brooklyn after resisting arrest on Saturday morning. Earlier, he had allegedly been seen masturbating outside the MTA booth at the station. On June 11, a woman snapped a picture of a person believed to be Hunt masturbating inside the same station, police said. Sgt. Chris O’Connell of the Transit Special Victims Unit said that combating serial subway sex crime offenders has been an “uphill battle” for police. “It’s terrifying for anyone, especially younger victims,” he told the Post. EAST FLATBUSH — Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 1644 New York Ave. in East Flatbush, according to New York YIMBY. The lot, located between Glenwood Road and Avenue H, is three blocks east of the 2 and 5 trains’ Flatbush Avenue station. The building would have 36 apartments, most likely rentals, as well as a cellar and 12 enclosed parking spaces. Demolition permits for the one-family house that is now on the lot were filed this March. Edmond Hakimian is listed as the architect of record. FLATBUSH — Rapper Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has launched a summer event that took place earlier this week at the Kings Theatre in Flatbush, which also starred his son Justin Combs, Charlemagne da God, Joe Budden, Remy Ma and others, according to the New York Post. In addition to performances, the event will include a live presentation of the TV show “State of the Culture” as well as a panel. This will be the kickoff event for Combs’ Revolt Summit, which, Combs said, “brings together artists, creators and executives to celebrate the culture and empower the community.” After the performance in Brooklyn, the Summit is traveling to Atlanta and Los Angeles. FLOYD BENNETT FIELD — The biggest inflatable children’s “bounce house” in the world is coming to Aviator Sports and Events Center at Floyd Bennett Field for 10 days, beginning on July 26, according to the Brooklyn Paper. “It’s the biggest bounce house in the world — that’s according to the Guinness Brook of World Records,” said Cameron Craig, founder of Big Bounce America, the bounce house’s operator. The house features a ball pit, climbing towers, basketball hoops and a DJ station to keep the party hopping. “We’ve got a lot going on in
Culex mosquitoes infected with the West Nile virus have been discovered in New York City Health Department monitoring traps in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, the city said Wednesday afternoon. The Health Department is urging people to protect themselves from mosquito bites using insect repellent and protective clothing.

AP photo by Mark Lennihan there, from limbo competitions, dance competitions, dodgeball,” said Craig. Separate time slots for the house are arranged by age group: toddlers, children age 4-7, children age 8-14 and adults. FORT GREENE — The Fort Greene Park Conservancy has hired its first-ever executive director — Rosamond Fletcher, according to the Brooklyn Paper. She comes to the conservancy after seven years as director of programs for the Design Trust for Public Space. “Fort Greene Park exists in a unique context with great socioeconomic diversity, so the conservancy has a responsibility to engage with all community members to balance priorities and build consensus,” she said. She looks forward to “talking to people in the park about their experiences in the park, what they care about and how the conservancy can strengthen their connection to the park.” GOWANUS — An infant defecating in the city’s Douglass and DeGraw Pool in Gowanus shut down the facility in the midst of Saturday’s extreme heat wave, according to the New York Post. Patrons who showed up hoping to beat the heat were incensed with the news. Around 11 a.m., a line began to form outside the gates. After workers informed would-be pool goers of the closure, many of those on line decided to head for the Red Hook Pool instead. Temperatures topped 100 degrees on both Saturday and Sunday. GREENPOINT — Hundreds of music superstar hopefuls lined up on Tuesday at the Brooklyn Expo Center on Noble Street in Greenpoint to audition for “American Idol,” according to ABC7. Justin Guarini, runner-up for the show’s first season, was on hand for the auditions. “Talent will take you only so far,” he said. “Your story is going to take you over the top.” Madison Vandenburg, who reached the final three last year, also had some advice for the contestants. “They should take a few minutes for themselves before the audition and just calm down and maybe even warm up a bit before they go on.” Eligible contestants must be between 18 and 25 years old. MIDWOOD — U.S. Sen. and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ early life in Brooklyn taught him some valuable lessons in life, according to the Associated Press. Sanders recalled that he and his brother shared a trundle bed in his parents’ 3½-room apartment, and that the family, while not poor, lived “from paycheck to paycheck.” Losing his mother when he was 18 also made life difficult for Sanders and contributed to his desire to leave the community where he’d grown up. “Our parents for the most part were American-born, but our grandparents weren’t, and we knew what it was to struggle,” David Sillen, a classmate of Sanders, told the Associated Press. Sanders has described his family as “lower middle class” and has said his parents frequently quarreled over money. PARK SLOPE — Learn to make your own neon signs at Brooklyn Glass, located at 13th Street and Third Avenue. Brooklyn Glass
co-founder Avid Ablon told CBS New York that, “You’re almost feeling like it’s dangerous, but it’s safe, so you almost end up with kind of an adrenaline high — playing with hot glass.” For $280, people can learn how to heat glass, how to blow it, how to bend it and how to handle it. “[The students] are very experienced in other fields — architecture, accounting, design — all sorts of things. But they come in to get their hands dirty and actually do something.” PROSPECT HEIGHTS — A quirky Brooklyn can collector who lived out of her trash-filled car until recently, yet owns millions in Manhattan real estate, faces fines of $5,000 a day because she’s allowed a rowhouse she owns at 451 Convent Ave. to become totally rundown, according to the New York Post. The 122-year-old building has partially collapsed floors, holes in the roofs, missing skylights and windows, and other deteriorating features, city Landmarks Preservation Commission said. The woman, Lisa Fiekowski, told the Post she didn’t know about the lawsuit. She said the damage in the building arose after a fire next door many years ago. Fiekowski added that she was forced to give up her garbage-filled car after it broke down. PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS — Jason “Kai” Jacobs, who was recently found guilty of pouncing on and beating to death 66-year-old Marc Faust outside the Food Corp. Deli on Rogers Avenue in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, spoke some chilling words in an interview on Rikers Island last Friday, according to popularcrime.com. “I don’t care about that guy,” Jacobs said. “I don’t owe him anything.” Jacobs insisted, despite evidence to the contrary, that Faust attacked him first. “I had to punch him however much as I needed to.” Prosecutors said the fight began after the two engaged in a “stare down” inside the bodega. RED HOOK — After years of delay, barbecue master Billy Durney’s Red Hook Tavern, focusing on classic New York food, opened Friday. The restaurant-bar at 329 Van Brunt St. was inspired by some of Durney’s favorite restaurants and bars, such as Corner Bistro and McSorley’s Old Ale House, according to New York Eater. Among its offerings are dry-aged burgers, brick chicken, dry-aged strip steak, chicken liver pate, cheese and charcuterie, country ham croquettes and a romaine wedge salad with bacon. Durney is best known as a partner in Hometown BBQ, also on Van Brunt Street. SUNSET PARK — Five months after an electrical fire at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Sunset Park cut off power and heat for prisoners for a week, the federal facility caught fire again last Friday afternoon, according to Gothamist. The fire broke out in a laundry room at the jail, but firefighters were able to put it out within an hour. Lawyers who were visiting clients at the jail when the fire broke out said that the facility went into lockdown and reported chemical smoke coming from the vents as they were escorted out of the building Six people suffered minor injuries and were taken to local hospitals for treatment, the FDNY said.

Graveyard Shift performance series coming to Green-Wood Cemetery BY ALEX WILLIAMSON EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM
Need a reason to live? Here’s one more thing to do before kicking the bucket: spend a summer evening contemplating your mortality at a moonlit show in Green-Wood cemetery. Green-Wood has teamed up with Pioneer Works to present Graveyard Shift, a performance series that will feature two site-specific shows this summer, commissioned for and inspired by the spooky setting. Experimental guitarist Yonatan Gat and the Eastern Medicine Singers, a traditional Algonquin pow wow group Gat has been collaborating with since 2017, will perform at the cemetery’s historic Cedar Dell on July 27. The group plays in a circular formation with the audience surrounding them, rather than keeping the performer on one side and the audience on the other. The circling will get downright concentric when the show comes to the center of Cedar Dell, where the tombstones are already arranged in a ring.
After the performance, the Native American group will lead the audience out of the cemetery with a drumline procession along a moonlit path. According to Gat, the evening will include music and chanting that’s meant in Algonquin tradition to commune with the dead, and which the group doesn’t normally perform in traditional venues. “It’s going to be a very intense experience,” said Gat. “One can’t help but kind of wonder about his own mortality and that of their loved ones in a situation like that. And part of the idea behind the series is to not fear those thoughts and to just accept them as perhaps a beautiful part about being alive.” Interdisciplinary artist and choreographer Kim Brandt will present her new dance performance piece, “Untitled,” at Cedar Dell on August 10. The work will feature performers collapsing mobile structures in “a rumination on circles, spheres, spirals and loops.” Brandt, who has performed at the Shed in Hudson Yards and MoMA PS1, created the

While it might sound odd for Green-Wood to find a second life as a concert venue as the graveyard begins to run out of burial space, Graveyard Shift is
really about getting back to the cemetery’s roots, according to the series’ co-organizer Bethany Tabor. Tabor points out that, in its early years, Green-Wood was something of a proto-Prospect Park and treated as much as
a picnic ground as a burial ground by the Victorians. “They had a very different relationship to death in that time period. Since then, that relationship has been diminished and harmed in my opinion.” said Tabor. “Events
and programs happening at the cemetery sort of brings us back to that time where we in Western society can mingle with each other and make the cemetery a social space again.” For tickets and info, visit here.

Eye on REAL ESTATE Come see the M-Crown area CB8 wants to rezone THE BOROUGH PRESIDENT SUPPORTS THIS PROPOSAL FOR NORTH CROWN HEIGHTS. By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams backs a neighborhood-led upzoning proposal in North Crown Heights — rezoning that, if enacted, would require developers to create space for job-generating light industrial and artisanal “maker” businesses and community facilities in new residential buildings.
Come take a stroll around the area that has been the focus of several years of effort by Community Board 8’s MCrown Subcommittee, which crafted the rezoning proposal.

The Franklin Avenue Shuttle runs through the M-Crown zone. ports the proposed rezoning. The Department of City Planning is in talks with the M-Crown Subcommittee about the proposed rezoning. As last week’s Eagle story mentions, agency spokesperson Rachaele Raynoff said DCP is “pleased to continue to work with community boards, elected officials and neighborhood groups, including in Crown Heights, on creative solutions that bring more housing and good jobs, in a broad array of sectors, closer to more New Yorkers, and which allow an evolving
range of businesses to locate in close proximity to residences.” The area includes blocks bounded by Atlantic Avenue, Grand Avenue, Bergen Street and Franklin Avenue and a stretch of Atlantic Avenue that extends to Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights. It has interesting businesses in it plus a sprinkling of beautiful rowhouses and repurposed manufacturing buildings. It’s also riddled with vacant lots and empty industrial buildings — properties that present opportunities for development in which housing would cross-subsidize manufacturing space, M-Crown Subcommittee members believe. P.S. In case you didn’t know, CB8 represents the neighborhoods of North Crown Heights, Prospect Heights and Weeksville.

This is Long Island Railroad Sub-Station No. 1 on Atlantic Avenue.
For those of us who are eye-minded, getting a good look at the buildings and vacant lots in the M-Crown zone is a helpful way to draw our minds into this unfolding rezoning story. I did not make up the word “eye-minded.” Recently, it was Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day. According to that posting, eye-minded means “disposed to perceive one's environment in visual terms and to recall sights more vividly than sounds or smells, etc.” So. I strolled around the MCrown area and took pictures. I started on Bergen Street, whose north side is within the M-Crown zone. One thing that caught my eye was a vast grassy lot behind the Brooklyn Pentacostal Assembly. Another thing was redbrick 925 Bergen St., designed by architect John Platte and built in 1885. It’s part of a complex of buildings formerly owned by Nassau Brewery Co. They’re all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 10INB •• INBROOKLYN Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of July 25,Gazette 2019 • Week of July 25–31, 2019 10INB INBROOKLYN — — AA Special SpecialSection SectionofofBrooklyn BrooklynEagle/Heights Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint
Eye on REAL ESTATE The M-Crown zone is a mix of auto repair shops, industrial buildings and housing. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan
Now it’s time to check out Atlantic Avenue. The south side of this busy speedway is included in the M-Crown zone. There are numerous auto repair shops, service stations and car washes. There’s a surprise at 1020 Atlantic Ave. — a distinguished building known as Long Island Railroad Sub-Station No. 1.

New York City residents from a variety of cultural backgrounds would rather shop at live poultry markets than buy packaged chicken at grocery stores. Back on Dean Street, afternoon car traffic was backed up. Luckily I was on foot. I turned onto Grand Avenue and walked past a busy tire repair business to the corner of Pacific Street. On the corner at 977-985 Pacific St., there was a vacant field with weeds as tall as I am. I wonder if Elichai Pariente knows that a part of the lot’s chain-link fence has fallen down. Finance Department records show that he’s the authorized signatory of
Come see the M-Crown area CB8 wants to rezone
The eye-catching house on the corner is 629 Classon Ave. — Continued from page 10INB — At Franklin Avenue I turned the corner and swung around to Dean Street. Arguably the M-Crown zone’s best known building is there — 1000 Dean St., which Brooklyn Flea co-founder Jonathan Butler and his partners turned into a hip office building a half-decade ago. The century-old building was formerly a service station for Studebaker cars.Butler and his partners recently sold 1000 Dean St. for $55.95 million to LIVWRK, city Finance Department records indicate.

A GIANT LEAP FOR MANKIND
en years old at the time, this columnist remembers exactly where he was when Neil Armstrong took that most important of steps onto the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. As a kid, I thought all the flights to the moon were exciting and had watched two months earlier as Apollo X orbited in a dress rehearsal of the flight that would culminate in the moon landing. When Apollo XI came about, I wanted to see the moon launch, moon landing and, of course, the first step. Like many kids of the time, I understood this was a big deal but maybe not a historically big deal because we were all regular TV viewers of shows like “Star Trek,”
“Lost in Space” and others which depicted events taking place centuries after the moon landing. Nevertheless, I know of no kid at the time that planned to miss the first step. Even if I had been willing to do something else on the 20th, my father made sure that my younger brother and I were going to be present for such a historical event. “‘There has never been anything like this,’ he would say. ‘It’s history. You will get to see one of the most important events in history being made.’” For some reason, I remembered it as late afternoon, but the first step was actually around 11 a.m. Daylight Savings Time on the East Coast. My brother and I sat
OPINION COMMON SENSE BY JERRY KASSAR
on the rug in the sun porch in our house on 80th Street in Dyker Heights with my parents sitting alongside us on the couch, taking it all in on our black- and-white console Zenith 24-inch-or-so TV. In our imagination, my brother and I were thinking of all the different things that could happen (all bad) when Armstrong opened the hatch and descended the steps. He of course made his famous statement, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” as he made his way down to the moon’s surface. At that time, until my father explained later, I thought a step had broken on the ladder and Armstrong was referring to the broken step. Soon after, all the excitement — at least for my
When Apollo XI came about, I wanted to see the moon launch, moon landing and, of course, the first step. brother and me —was over. It was not the same for my father who the next day bought a couple of copies of the Daily News edition that say Moonday, July 21 and have the famous picture and statement on the cover. One we looked over and the other two copies he wrapped and sealed in heavy plastic and then placed in a drum that had a good seal. We still have
nti-immigrant sentiments have been front and center in recent national news. Whether it be from the White House or in towns across the country, including locally here in Brooklyn, the topic has been omnipresent. Nativist attitudes are not new and they extend in a different, yet related form, beyond those emigrating from other countries. Similar to the “Go back to where you came from” and “You’re not a real American” refrains we hear, Americans who moved to Brooklyn from other parts of the country are often told they are not a “Real New Yorker” or that they don’t have the right to comment on a local issue. Make no mistake, any negativity they encounter is not on the same level with what foreign-born Brooklynites may face, but these views originate from the same
exclusionary beliefs. Legitimate criticisms of gentrification forcing lifelong Brooklynites out of certain neighborhoods are real, but this is different. Certain people from communities that were restricted thanks to decades of redlining proudly proclaim that their families have been here for generations. The fact is, their family received the privilege of choosing their neighborhood, which wasn’t afforded to families of different ethnicities, races or economic strata. But even if these were historically diverse neighborhoods, any Brooklynite who has lived his or her entire life here has seen many friends and family members move away. Yet, none of them would ever say that those who now live elsewhere have no right to join their kids’ PTA or get involved in the local community board or speak
on political issues in their adopted communities. These “I’ve lived here for generations” folks have family members that have made new homes in New Jersey, on Long Island or in some other part of the country, and they would never tell them that, because they are recent transplants, they have less of a right to be part of the communities where they have chosen to raise their families.
If someone wants to get into a “How Brooklyn are you?” contest, I’m not the person to do it with, but I have no interest in doing that because it doesn’t matter if people have been here five decades or five months While engaging in debates on social media, as well as in real life, I have
them. The copies are no longer in the drum, but are still nicely sealed in the plastic. My father was right — it was a moment in history that we were fortunate to witness. On this past week’s 50th anniversary, I look upon those historic days with the fondest of memories. *** If you are on Facebook, you probably have noticed old (sometimes very old) articles appearing as though the event just happened. Celebrity deaths and crime-related stories seem to reappear all the time, but it could be most anything. On occasion, the person posting mentions that the original story is worth posting again. Mostly, though,
it appears that the story is simply an old one that the individual posting did not realize was from sometime in the past. Recently, I saw a posting go around complaining that the governor’s parole board was going to release a child killer. The person doing the posting wanted to express outrage and ask people to contact the governor, and was right this person should not be paroled. What the person missed was that the board had actually paroled the person last summer. The article being posted was a year old. I do not choose to judge, but I feel comfortable scratching my head wondering what the person posting was thinking.
MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN
often been asked where I am originally from, as if that has any bearing on the subject being discussed. I was born in Victory Memorial Hospital in Bay Ridge, I’ve never lived anywhere but Southern Brooklyn, and I am incredibly proud of my hometown, but I am embarrassed by how frequently my Brooklyn-born brethren resort to this attack. If someone wants to get into a “How Brooklyn are you?” contest, I’m not the person to do it with, but I have no interest in doing that because it doesn’t matter if people have been here five decades or five months. As long as they love this community and choose to make it their home, they
have as much right to voice their opinion as anyone else. There is a mentality among some “locals” that if you don’t agree with them on political issues, you must not be from around here. At a debate in Dyker Heights last year, when the audience’s reactions made it clear the room was overwhelmingly in the corner of the Democratic challenger, staffers of the incumbent Republican I was seated close to kept dismissively remarking to me and others, “Go back to Ohio” or some other midwest state. In their mind, our views were different so we must not be “Real Brooklynites.” The demographics of Democratic supporters at that debate were mixed, but most were actually native New Yorkers. I must admit that it isn’t
just the local GOP that has been underestimating how many Brooklyn-born neighbors are not conservatives. When I volunteered for a Democratic campaign in Southern Brooklyn last year, I was frequently surprised by how many lifelong Brooklyn neighbors I met knocking on doors, at campaign events or while volunteering together were progressive Democrats. I had my own preconceived assumptions that I was an outlier as a lifelong Brooklynite who is also progressive. That was wrong of me. I realized that the diversity I value so much in my borough includes a diversity of political views among all of us, whether we’ve lived here for decades or for months.

Third Ave. needs BID to fend off Amazon, sustain Summer Stroll, festival, holiday lights & more

Voting in Business Improvement District will unify stores, building owners to preserve neighborhood
Last Friday evening, despite the heat, a few thousand strollers stepped out to enjoy the second installment of Third Avenue’s 2019 Summer Stroll on 3rd program. While Verena and I took a seat outside Greenhouse Cafe, a friend who said she had just seen Merchants of Third Avenue President Bob Howe headlining a “Third Avenue Needs a BID” display, walked by and inquired, “Why are you [the Merchants of Third Avenue] looking to set up a Business Improvement District along Third Avenue?” “Do you want the long or the short answer,” I replied. “Whatever,” she replied. “It’s hot as hell here!” The answer, I explained, is actually quite simple: “If you want to continue to enjoy our Summer Strolls, the festivals, the essential but very expensive holiday lights, the parades and the many ways local businesses continue to contribute financially and as volunteers to keep this a really quality place to live, you will cheerfully welcome the arrival of a Business Improvement District.” “Third Avenue is doing well,” she observed with a sweep of her well-tanned arm. “Do we really need a BID?” Another easy answer: “Third Avenue has blossomed during the past few decades thanks to volunteers and leaders like Bob Howe, Festival Manager Chip Cafiero, Brian Chin of Northfield Bank, Jeanine Condon of Charmed, John Keegan of Greenhouse Cafe, Wade Jabour of Jabour Realty, Jay Sessa of McLaughlin’s Funeral Home, Lloyd Berg of Verrazano Vision and many more. But the only way to keep the avenue a drawing card for Bay Ridge is through a BID.”
“How about new volunteers?” my friend asked. Yet another easy reply: “Volunteers are a vanishing breed. Number one, too many people today think that they become a volunteer just by signing a petition on the web, then ordering some cheaper merchandise from Amazon and sitting at home watching the latest Netflix show.” On a roll of sorts, I asked her, “Do you know how many local retail stores here on Third or throughout the city have been decimated by Amazon and other web giants?” She guessed, “A lot.” “Amazon and the other web giants got away for years with paying little or no taxes, but merchants here are paying up to $20,000 per year for just a regular storefront,” I couldn’t resist saying. Even though she was (and I hope remains) a good friend, my questioner seemed surprised to learn the maximum tax advantage Amazon and others get from the system and the heavy tax burden inflicted on the smallest of retail stores. This was the umpteenth time I’ve had this conversation, so I was prepared to add quickly, “The only way to preserve the businesses we have is to let everyone here — store owners, property owners and other stakeholders — get behind a Third Avenue BID.” Continuing the roll, I explained, “Do you know that out of the hundreds of businesses and property owners around and on Third Avenue only about 20 or 30 are regular, committed supporters of the Merchants of Third Avenue Business/Civic Association? Howe and his officers, as well as a handful of civic volunteers, go door to door to raise the funds for programs like the holiday lights and Summer Stroll on 3rd. They raise the money, staff the events and
Live music outside Greenhouse Cafe drew a large crowd at the July 19 stroll. deal with the city’s complex rules and regulations so that we can enjoy the good stuff like these Friday night Summer Strolls.” There are about 80 well-established BIDs throughout the city. Their collective experience shows that when a BID comes in, real estate values stabilize, local shops benefit directly from increased foot traffic and the BID area gains more respect from city agencies which tend to favor BIDS over volunteer merchant/civic associations. For instance, I told my friend as she tried to walk away, “Did you know that the Fifth Avenue BID just received a $100,000 marketing grant from the city?” “Why?” she asked. “Because they’re a BID,” I replied. To my satisfaction, she gave a halting nod of approval. As she walked away I was reminded of the prevalent adage, “Money talks.”
“When you’ve won your case,” a judge once advised me after he had granted my motion, “just keep quiet and say thank you to the court.” So I’ll close quickly with this quote from the Merchants of Third Avenue BID mission statement: ”The major goal of BID formation is to create a formal organization to act as an advocate, liaison, promoter and problem solver for the business community, and enhance quality of life for all who live, work, dine, shop, stroll, and invest in businesses and properties on Third Avenue. The BID formation Steering Committee is focused on creating an organizational structure to deliver those goals in an efficient and costeffective manner, recognizing that every dollar spent will directly impact the avenue in a positive way. The BID formation aims to unlock the long-term potential of Bay Ridge Third Avenue, ensuring that the corridor maintains its vibrance and economic viability in perpetuity.”
