Community leader Ilene Sacco: the strength behind the stroll BY JOHN ALEXANDER

Ilene Sacco has been a civic leader in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights for nearly three decades. Her good works and deeds have impacted almost every local organization imaginable. The former president of the 68th Precinct Community Council and the Bay Ridge Community Council, and board member of the Dyker Heights Civic Association, the Bay Ridge Lions Club and Reaching-Out Community Services, is also the force behind the popular Bay Ridge Third Avenue Summer Stroll series that runs for four weeks during the summer months. Throughout her career, she has continuously helped foster strong relations within the south Brooklyn neighborhoods, most notably between residents and the police, especially during her tenure working with the 68th Precinct. Thanks to her leadership skills, coupled with the help of various board members through the years, the 68th Precinct Community Council became one of the more prominent and active organi-

zations in the community. Sacco was born and raised in Queens but fell in love with Brooklyn, especially Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights, in the early ‘90s when she started working for the Kings County DA’s Office as director of special projects. Sacco earned her law degree from New York Law School in 1994 and both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in criminal justice from John Jay College. She is an attorney and currently works for the New York State Office of People with Developmental Disabilities. As director of this unit, she manages almost $1 billion worth of services that help those with developmental disabilities. Prior to that she was the deputy of community relations in the New York City Comptroller’s Office, counsel and director of the Brooklyn Office for City Councilmember James Oddo, and also served as counsel to Primary Land Title Company. Sacco has received numerous awards and citations for her service including being honored by the NIA, one of the largest service organizations in the community.

She was also recognized in a Unit Citation that was given to the 68th Precinct from the NYPD. Sacco was instrumental in that organization’s annual National Night Out Against Crime that ultimately became one of the largest Night Out events in the entire city, with attendance going over 5,000 people yearly. She is a board member of the Dyker Heights Civic Association and of the Resource Training Center, a co-administrator of the Kassenbrock Brothers Memorial Scholarship Fund, a longstanding member and current treasurer of the Ragamuffin Parade committee and a board member on the 68th Precinct Community Council. She also works closely with the Merchants of Third Avenue with whom she is coordinating Summer Stroll for the fourth year. Sacco currently resides in Dyker Heights with her husband John Walsh, an accountant, and they are currently working on adopting their first child.  For coverage of last week’s Summer Stroll, please turn to page 8.

Home plot in Dyker Heights. But, not all buys break the bank. The former site of St. Rosalia Church, also in Dyker Heights — cost the SCA just under $10 million in February. One month before, the SCA purchased a property in Sunset Park for just $1.25 million. Looking at size and scope, the old St. Rosalia Church is slated to become a 350-seat primary school, while the Nathan’s site will serve close to double the students. Meanwhile, the Spruce Street site is now home

to P.S. 397, a pre-K-8 school of the same enrollment size (just under 600) that makes the newest District 20 site feel like a steal. Councilmember Justin Brannan, who represents Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and parts of Bensonhurst, said the price is worth paying. “We must continue to do whatever we can to improve education for all of our children. Failure to improve our schools is simply not an option,” he told this paper. A phone call to a number

associated with Allied Properties was not returned. (Its answering machine thanked this paper for contacting “Axiom Management..”) The Department of Education also did not respond to requests for comment. A spokesperson for the SCA said Monday that there was competition for the site: Ziss had been offered a 10-year lease with renewal options by a potential tenant, which the spokesperson said was a major national grocer.

Nathan’s Famous buyer sold property to city for twice the price BY MEAGHAN MCGOLDRICK

MMCGOLDRICK @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

The buyer-turned-seller of a storied Nathan’s Famous made a pretty penny in the trade-off to the city’s School Construction Authority, according to city records. The nearly 20,000-squarefoot property at 650 86th St. — on the border of Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights — had been an outpost of the fast food giant for more than four decades. It was sold in October 2018 to “660 86 LLC,” which sources at the time said pointed to Efthimios Zisimopoulos, a.k.a. Tim Ziss, of Allied Properties. An Agreement of Sale confirms Ziss’ affiliation, and a new deed for the property, dated June 25, shows that — while he paid approximately $12.25 million for the property — the SCA

dished out about double. The agency, which is responsible for the acquisition, design and construction of public schools in New York City, paid $25 million for the site, according to the deed. Earlier this year, it was announced that the corner plot would become a nearly 600seat middle school in one of the city’s most notoriously overcrowded school districts. District 20 — which encompasses Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and portions of Bensonhurst, Sunset Park and Borough Park — has a shortfall of nearly 11,000 seats, SCA reps said at a contentious public hearing on the site in March. While residents argued against the site’s location (citing pedestrian safety, congestion and parking, among other issues), SCA spokesperson Tamar Smith stressed the urgent need for more schools

in the area. (Smith did not immediately respond to requests for comment Friday.) According to city records, while the Nathan’s site is among the most expensive of the SCA’s latest acquisitions, it has handed over as much as $75 million in the past for a Manhattan site on Spruce Street. Earlier this year, it paid $20 million for a large site in Staten Island, and another $17.5 million for the school it plans to build on just part of the massive Angel Guardian

The site of the 86th Street Nathan’s has been sold to the city by the developer who bought it for twice his purchase price; a new school will be built there. ebrooklyn media/file photo

13th annual Bay Ridge Arab American Bazaar filled Shore Road Park with cultural pride BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

It was a spectacular day in Shore Road Park on Sunday, July 14 as the Arab American community gathered to celebrate their culture and heritage in Bay Ridge at the 13th Annual Bay Ridge Arab American Bazaar, a well-attended celebration of Arab American culture and heritage. There were live musical performances, food stations, henna artists, calligraphists, vendors, as well as face painting and other activities for the kids. Guests were met with the sweet smell of Middle Eastern food favorites such as shish kabob, kibbeh, falafel, tabbouleh, spinach pies and kafta. Among the elected officials and civic leaders attending were Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus; City Councilmember

Justin Brannan; Capt. Robert Conwell, commanding officer of the 68th Precinct; Dr. Habib Joudeh, chief executive officer of the Artisans of Medicine and Arab American Association Vice President; and community activist Linda Sarsour. “It’s a great feeling to be here today,” said Joudeh, a community leader and activist who owns two pharmacies in Bay Ridge. “We have a large attendance and a lot of people around us and we’re very grateful for everyone stopping by.” “I like to think of Bay Ridge as the original home to everyone from everywhere, and it’s organizations like the Arab American Association of New York that keep that feeling alive,” Brannan said. Frontus said she was elated to attend the event. “Fantastic music, dancing and food — this is why people love Bay Ridge,” she said.

Dancing was a big part of the event.

A street in Coney co-named after beloved Brooklyn cop, Leon Fox BY GABRIELLE GUZ

EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Nearly 80 years after Police Officer Leon Fox was killed there in the line of duty, the corner of Surf Avenue and West 12th Street was conamed in his memory on Monday, July 15. Around 100 local residents, police and city officials, friends and family members gathered to celebrate Fox’s life and legacy at a poignant ceremony at the intersection, moments before the unveiling of the street sign for “Leon Fox Way.” In February 1941, Fox was escorting the manager of a Coney Island movie theater to the bank to deposit the day’s earnings. As they neared the

bank, three men approached them and grabbed the manager’s suitcase. They fired at Fox at least six times, then got into their vehicle and drove away. Already seriously wounded, Fox shot at the suspects as they fled. He was later pronounced dead at Coney Island Hospital. Fox served at the 60th Precinct for a decade. “For several years now, we have planned and prepared for this day, understanding how important it is to present Police Officer Leon Fox’s story,” said City Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, who represents the 48th Council District. “The man was known and loved by thousands of local residents, and it seemed inconceivable that he was gone.”

Beloved Bay Ridge bistro Circles Café has closed for good BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

It seems like Circles Café and Grill has been a part of the fabric of the Bay Ridge neighborhood since it first opened its doors in 1976. Now the beloved bistro has quietly closed the doors of its most recent location, 6931 Third Ave., and disconnected the phone. The restaurant’s original location was at 310 Bay Ridge Ave. The owners opened an additional shop at 9023 Third Ave., where it remained until 2015 before being replaced by Pipin’s Pub, which itself had relocated from its original home of over four decades at 97th Street and Third Avenue. When the Bay Ridge Avenue Circles closed, it moved to the space once occupied by Cangiano’s Pork

Store, which shut its doors in October 2011. Moe Sayed, a real estate broker whose company Realtynerd is listing the property, confirmed that Circles has officially closed. “One of their chefs died this past year and they decided to close the business,” Sayed told this paper. City Councilmember Justin Brannan was surprised by the news. “Last I heard, they had hooked up with a new partner and were looking good,” Brannan told this paper. Bob Howe, president of the Merchants of Third Avenue, said he knew one of the owners, John Fahy, and was surprised to hear the news. “We’re sorry to see them go and hopefully they will open again in some shape or form along the avenue in the near future,” Howe said.

According to Deutsch, it was Police Officer Albert Mammon’s idea to name the street after Fox. When he was assigned to the 60th Precinct several years ago, Mammon learned of the story and urged the councilmember to sponsor legislation to co-name the street in Fox’s honor. Deutsch added, “At a time when police officers are under so much scrutiny… it is so important that we show our respect and gratitude to the difficult job that they do each and every day.” Gerald Fox, who now lives in California and is Fox’s only son, was just seven years old when his dad perished. “It was a terrible, terrible thing that happened to him,” Fox said. He said his mother remarried several times subsequently, but her love for his father was undying. Before she died at a nursing home, she reportedly told her son, “Remember your father. He was my first and only true love.” After Mammon recited Kaddish, a Jewish prayer for

Councilmember Chaim Deutsch, right, with some of those who gathered with him to celebrate the naming of Leon Fox Way. Photo courtesy of Councilmember Chaim Deutsch the deceased, the crowd walked over to the street corner to witness the unveiling of the sign.

“[Officer Fox] was known to be a good man and a good cop, who left a significant impact on his fellow

Brooklynites,” said Deutsch. “That legacy will never be forgotten, and that street sign will make sure of it.”

Search begins for new executive director of Riders Alliance

Co-founder John Raskin is leaving his post By PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

One of New York’s leading transit advocacy groups is looking for a new leader. John Raskin, co-founder and executive director of the Riders Alliance, recently announced he is leaving his post at the end of the year. Raskin, who lives in downtown Brooklyn, has served at the helm since he helped launch the group seven years ago. Under Raskin’s leadership, the Riders Alliance successfully fought for congestion pric-

ing to raise revenue for the city’s troubled transit system and the Fair Fares program, in which poverty-stricken New Yorkers can purchase MetroCards at half price. “I will miss working every day with this extraordinary team, and I will miss our dedicated members who have contributed time and sweat and dollars and everything else to build up the Riders Alliance and win significant victories for public transportation,” Raskin said. Founded in 2012, the Riders Alliance has more than 1,000

members and a staff of 10 employees. The group operates with an annual budget of $1.5 million. Prior to founding the Riders Alliance, Raskin served as chief of staff to Daniel Squadron when Squadron was a Democratic state senator representing Brooklyn Heights. The Riders Alliance became well known for its innovative and attention-grabbing tactics aimed at convincing Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and lawmakers to work to improve transit service. The organization introduced the hashtag #CuomosMTA to

bring attention to deteriorating subway service and had members ride the trains with a cardboard cutout of Cuomo to demonstrate how the governor holds sway over the MTA. The Riders Alliance is conducting a search for Raskin’s successor and has posted the job listing for executive director at www.ridersny.org/jobs. Raskin vowed to stay involved in the organization. “I will continue as a dedicated member, because I believe deeply in the need to fix our transit system and the capacity of this powerful grassroots movement to make it happen,” he said.

Argument leads to stabbing in Bay Ridge, two victims listed in stable condition

BY VICTOR PORCELLI EDITORIAL @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

One man was taken into surgery with a stomach injury and another nursed a wounded arm after an argument turned violent in Bay Ridge on Monday, according to a police source. The two men were stabbed

around 4:45 p.m. on the corner of 78th Street and Fifth Avenue in the 68th precinct. The two victims were arguing with the perpetrator when he quickly slashed the two — one in the left arm and one in the stomach — and fled the scene, police said. The 58-year-old man who was stabbed in the stomach was taken into surgery at NYU Langone

Hospital-Brooklyn and is now in stable condition. Footage taken after the incident shows the second victim leading police to the nearby bodega and motioning down 78th street towards Fourth Avenue, potentially pointing to where the perpetrator fled. According to police, the investigation is ongoing.

T

he avenue was packed on Friday night, July 12 as revelers took to the streets to enjoy the first night of this year’s annual Summer Stroll series. It was a sea of people walking along Third Avenue in Bay Ridge between 80th and 90th streets with an array of food, music, entertainment and activities for kids of all ages. Restaurants along the strip had bands playing and outdoor seating so strollers could stop and take in the sights. Outside Chadwick’s Restaurant at 88th Street, a band played while people danced in the street. 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

BAY RIDGE — The most recent Bay Ridge location of Circles Café and Grill has closed its doors at 6931 Third Ave. and disconnected its phone, according to Brookynreporter.com. The restaurant’s original location, which opened in 1976 was 310 Bay Ridge Ave. The owners opened an addition Bay Ridge location at 9023 Third Ave., which lasted until 2015. “One of [Circles’] chefs died this past year, and they decided to close the business,” Moe Sayed, a real estate broker who is listing the property, told Brooklynreporter.com. Councilmember Justin Brannan said of Circle’s owners, “They were hard workers who lived in the community and were involved in the community.”

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Bedford-Stuyvesant has turned into a “hotbed of construction,” with about 27 percent of all homes on the market being within a football field’s distance of an active construction site, according to Patch. “Moving to Kings County might not necessarily bring you peace and tranquility, at least in the near term as the borough’s building book continues,” said Nur Gonen, data scientist for Localize.city, a real estate research website. Localize.city warned house- or apartment-hunters, especially those who look at properties at night, to investigate the neighborhood before they sign a lease. According to a Patch survey, Bed-Stuy was Brooklyn’s second-busiest neighborhood, just behind Williamsburg. 

BOROUGHWIDE — On Friday, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams joined elected officials and health experts at Borough Hall to urge Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill to include mediation and mindfulness training in a recently announced NYPD Health and Wellness Task Force. Since the beginning of 2019, six police officers have taken their own lives. “The stress and trauma that our police officers face on a daily basis, where they are frequently forced to make life-ordeath decisions, are all too familiar to me as a former NYPD captain and member of the force,” said Adams, speaking at Borough Hall. “The job of a New York City police officer has always been a stressful one, but policing today is more mentally and environmentally taxing that ever before,” added Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch. 

BROWNSVILLE — On July 27, 30 Brooklyn kids will get a chance to run their own business, according to Brooklyner. Through the National Lemonade Day program, they have been drafting business plans and learning about finance. Finally, they will sell their lemonade at the Brownsville Recreation Center. Children who participate mainly are referred by the Central Brooklyn Economic Development Corp., although some sign up individually. “When you see how inspired kids are when they actually start collecting money, it’s a pretty powerful thing,” said Bryan Guadingo, the National Lemonade Day program’s New York City director. Last year’s event was held in McCarren Park in Williamsburg. 

BUSHWICK — The MTA has announced that it will cut back L-train overnight service between Lorimer Street and Broadway Junction on nights and weekends for the rest of July and for occasional nights and weekends through the end of the year, according to Curbed. Trains are already running only every 20 minutes from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. On weeknights, trains won’t run between Lorimer and Broadway Junction from midnight to 5 a.m.; and on weekends, the closure will begin at 10 a.m. The MTA says it needs access to the tracks in Brooklyn to make repairs as part of its over Canarsie Tunnel project. The L train’s East River tunnel was seriously damaged during Superstorm Sandy. While the Lorimer-Broadway Junction stretch of the L train is closed, shuttle buses will be available to straphangers, Curbed said. 

CANARSIE — Mozelle Brown, who lost her daughter to bullet mean for someone else two years ago, held a party in Canarsie Park recently to honor those who put her daughter’s killers behind bars, according to PIX11. “You feel like family now,” Brown told the detectives and assistant district attorneys attending the party. After the original shooting, Det. Philip Facenda of the 81st Precinct and Det. Thomas Pisano of Brooklyn North tracked

the killers down to North Carolina. Last month, Nazir Saunders and Anthony Alexander were convicted of second-degree murder. The gathering released dozens of balloons with shouts of “We love you Chynna,” referring to Chynna Battle, the murder victim. 

CONEY ISLAND — The Brooklyn Paper recently listed what it considers Coney Island’s top food spots. They included Al Cavallino, a pizza shop serving “high-end personal pizzas” that opened two months ago; Kitchen 21 in the former Childs Restaurant building, which serves traditional seaside fare such as burgers and seafood with a gourmet twist; Nathan’s Famous, whose hot dogs are synonymous with New York franks for many people; Williams Candy Shop, the home of candy apples and chocolate-covered marshmallows; and Ruby’s Bar and Grill, “your beer and snack go-to while on the beach.” Conspicuous by its absence from this list was Gargiulo’s Italian Restaurant, a few blocks from the amusement district, which has been a high-end attraction for more than 100 years. 

CROWN HEIGHTS — MTA New York City Transit President Andy Byford thinks handwritten service announcements, such as the hastily scrawled “No Manhattan-Bound Trains” signs found at the President Street station on Crown Heights on Monday, make the subway system “look like a mom-and-pop shop.” The standard 8½-by-11-inch sheets of white paper were the only notices of the closure. Byford added that “Handwritten signs are anathema to me. They are an embarrassment,” according to the New York Post. Station managers have been reminded to stick to official signs. 

DYKER HEIGHTS — Five people were injured when a car in Dyker Heights jumped onto the sidewalk and crashed into a deli on Sunday morning, according to ABC7. The incident happened around 8:15 a.m. at the corner of 14th Avenue and 67th Street. Two people were injured seriously, and three others suffered minor injuries. The victims were taken to NYU Langone Hospital-Brooklyn and Maimonides Medical Center. 

FORT GREENE — A restored 1850s townhouse in Fort Greene topped luxury real estate sales in Brooklyn last week, according to The Real Deal. The six-bedroom property was sold for $3.9 million. The second most expensive contract was for a condo at 347 Henry St. in Cobble Hill, which went for $3.7 million. Luxury sales in the borough were worth a combined total of $38.9 million,

The Real Deal reported. The properties each averaged 108 days on the market. Stribling, a high-end real estate firm, describes luxury sales as $5 million or higher. 

PARK SLOPE — The Park Slope Civic Council and the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID are scheduled to present “Art Slope,” a presentation of film shorts, at the Old Stone House in Washington Park on July 19, starting at 8:30. Washington Park is just off Fifth Avenue and Third Street. Eight short films will be shown, and all are suitable for children, according to the Civic Council. 

RED HOOK — Forbes recently reviewed an electric car ride one of its writers took in Brooklyn. The electric car in particular was a Porsche Taycan, the luxury brand’s first battery-powered electric vehicle. This Taycan took part in last weekend’s electric-car races on the Red Hook waterfront. The ride wasn’t a cab ride, but a “demo ride” before Sunday’s race. “The Taycan seemed to handle remarkably well,” Forbes reported. “It was stable through corners with minimal body roll, although it did pitch forward under hand braking.” Bear in mind that through much of the demo ride, the Taycan was going forward at triple-digit speeds. 

SEA GATE — Registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who has been getting quite a lot of publicity lately due to his reputed ties to President Donald Trump, grew up in Sea Gate, a gated middle-class enclave at the western end of Coney Island, according to the Forward. The family lived across the street from Kenesses Israel, the area’s oldest synagogue. Epstein and his brother Mark were both gifted students in math, and Jeffrey himself was known as a talented musician. Like most kids in the neighborhood, he attended Lafayette High School, which was then largely Italian-American and Jewish. Eventually, Epstein went to college, started teaching at the elite Dalton School and moved to Wall Street. “He never looked back,” the Forward said. 

WILLIAMSBURG — The 116 annual Giglio feast is underway in Williamsburg. The feast, dedicated to San Paolino, came to New York from Italy in 1903, according to PIX11. Part of it involves lifting a towering “Giglio” statue. In the past, there were waiting lists for people who wanted to help lift the Giglio. However, many Italians have moved out of Williamsburg in the recent past, and this year the organizers of the feast had to solicit lifters for the 72-foot structure. After outreach efforts, they found 100 new people, according to Giglio lieutenant Neil Dellamonica.

Seventh annual Play for Pink Golf Tournament raises money for cancer research BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

I

t was a perfect afternoon to golf for a very good cause on Saturday, July 13 at the seventh annual Play for Pink tournament at Dyker Beach Golf Course. The fundraiser was sponsored by the Brookridge Women’s Golf Club with all proceeds going to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. According to event organizer and Brookridge Women’s Golf Club member Katherine Condon this was their best turnout so far. “It feels awesome to be here,” Condon told this paper. “The weather is perfect and I believe this is our best event ever. We were sold out two weeks ago with 144 players of all levels—from expert to amateur — with men hitting the links as well as women.”

Conlon was also thrilled that this year’s event raised over $28,000, besting last year’s total of $25,000. “It’s also wonderful that Dyker Beach Golf Course on their own ran different events to collect money for us,” continued Condon. “They donated over $6,300 towards this event and that to me is very special that they would do this for us. I love golf and

it’s just a great event overall.” The day included a continental breakfast, 18 holes of golf with a cart, hole in one contests and longest drive contests. After playing, golfers enjoyed lunch on the Dyker Beach Golf Club veranda with door prizes, raffles and gifts. This year’s winners were Eddie Gardner, Victoria Gardner, Terry Tarangelo and Maddie Lopez. Dyker Beach Golf Course has been hosting the Brookridge Women’s Golf Club since 1955.

Heroes Night celebrated at MCU Park’s Wall of Remembrance BY JOHN ALEXANDER

JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

I

t was a solemn night to reflect and recall loved ones lost on Sept. 11, 2001 and pay tribute to the heroic first responders who risked their lives to save lives at the twin towers. Over 500 people attended the 12th Heroes Night celebration at the Wall of Remembrance at MCU Park in Coney Island on Friday,

July 12. Those attending the service included families of first responders, 36 probationary firefighters carrying the American flag, the FDNY Ceremonial Unit and the FDNY Emerald Society Bagpipers. The event allows the families of first responders to enjoy a Brooklyn Cyclones baseball game following a prayer service at the wall with FDNY Chaplain Msgr.

John Delendick. This year’s tribute honored the memory of Raymond Goffio, FDNY honorary battalion chief and Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance director. First responder Goffio died last year. Goffio’s brother Joe threw out the first pitch at the Cyclones game. “I think the most important thing is that Brooklyn never forgot,” Honorary Deputy Chief with the New

Theatre for Kids Families inbetter Parkthan Slope Iconic Savarese Italianand Pastry Shoppe isOpens back and ever By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

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

“All of our baking is done on the premises with recipes passed down from generation to generation,” Giura told this paper. After serving in the U.S. Army for three years, stationed in Korea for two years, Mario had the option of going back to school or returning to work at the bakery. He chose tradition and has spent his career dedicated to making and ensuring the quality of all the product lines found at Savarese Italian Pastry Shoppe. All of Savarese’s best-selling items are homemade including old-world Italian pastries that very few bakeries still offer and items such as cremolata, an old Italian ice cream favorite. “Our Italian ices are naturally flavored with bits of fresh fruit,” Giura explained. “Savarese is family-run which makes it more gratifying when our customers leave our store with their favorite delicacies,” Giura continued. “Savarese stands out because all our baked goods are handmade as old, traditional works of art. Our ingredients are the freshest. Being successful shows how much passion and devotion pay off,” he added.

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

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

One of Brooklyn’s most beloved bakeries has had quite a year. Savarese Italian Pastry Shoppe at the corner of 60th Street and New Utrecht Avenue celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2018. But on March 26, a fire at Savarese caused minor damage to the upstairs apartment. Thankfully, the fire was contained, the bakery was not affected and no one was seriously injured.

Giura wants everyone to know that Savarese is back and better than ever. “We are thrilled to have celebrated our 100th anniversary last year and we are also proud of our full line of pastries,” he explained. Savarese provides wholesale gelato Italian ices to pizzerias and restaurants and ice cream shops.

In fact, wedding cakes are a specialty, with each custom-made for every occasion. Savarese also bakes traditional Italian biscuits, pignoli and rainbow cookies. The business was established in 1918 when the Savarese family emigrated from Naples, Italy, bringing with them their traditional love of Italian baking. Soon, its reputation grew thanks to the quality and artistry of its baked creations. In 1962, the Giura family took over the bakery. They also boasted a rich Italian heritage coming from Venosa, a town in Basilicata, Italy. From the moment they took over, the family was dedicated and committed to creating a product line of handcrafted bakery products in the tradition of old-world Italy Savarese owner and master such as homemade sfogliatelle, cannoli chef Mario Giura working on or gelato using only the finest ingredione of the shop’s renowned ents. wedding cakes.

Actor Vincent Pastore celebrated at Saturday block party in Gravesend BY GABRIELLE GUZ EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

The neighborhood was out in force outside Our Lady of Grace Church on Saturday, July 13 to celebrate actor Vincent Pastore's birthday a little early at an old-fashioned Brooklyn block party. Hosted by Gravesend-born actor and filmmaker William DeMeo and Michelle Frantzeskos’s Entertainment and Consultant Inc., there was food, music and dancing aplenty. Classic cars lined up along the church’s parking lot. Maria “The Ice Cream Girl” Campanella’s ice cream truck, Stella’s Zeppoles, A&S Fine Store’s BBQ and Isabella Creations’ birthday cake provided the food. Vendors onsite to sell their wares included Brooklyn Brand T-shirts, Wise Girl Wear perfume and Wise Guy Wear cologne. The music was powered by DJ’s McGee Too, Lenny Santawasso and Ross the Boss.

A $20 donation to the church was the price of admission. Participants also had countless opportunities to take photos with and get autographs from celebrities, including Joseph D’Onofrio, Federico Castelluccio, Robert Gillings and Rick Borgia, as well as DeMeo and, of course, Pastore himself. A few days prior to the event, DeMeo said he couldn’t wait to bring back, even if for a night, the tradition of Brooklyn block parties, something he said people always looked forward to in the summertime. “I like events like these, when people can get a sense of how they grew up, coming back to just the way it was,” DeMeo said in a phone interview before the party. “It’s a great feeling to see people you haven’t seen in years. Lots of those who moved on have come back because they want to feel like they did when they were younger. We want to remember how we grew up.” As part of the

event, the hosts had a surprise not only for the guest of honor but also for the “Sopranos” fans in attendance who gathered around a Swan truck, a rented vehicle that provides high resolution screens for video and audio entertainment, to watch clips of Pastore’s most notable

performances on the TV series. Later, Frances Mignano, a Brooklyn-born actress, producer and singer, took to the microphone to sing “Happy Birthday,” alongside a couple of hit songs, such as Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York,” Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and Madonna’s “Open Your Heart.” Domini Monroe, a musical artist, and Biagio Benevenga, an Italian-American singer, drove the excitement of the night forward, as party-goers hit the dance floor. Monroe performed her own hit songs, while Benevenga brought the crowd back to the ‘80s with Joe Dolce’s “Shaddap Your Face” and Julius La Rosa’s “Eh Cumpari.” “Everybody from Brooklyn, from Michele, to Willy, my dear friend — he is like my son — thank you,” said Pastore. “You know, I met Willy many years ago. I was doing a project and Willy came up. He handed me a script called the ‘Wannabees.’ And I looked at him and said,

‘You don’t come up to an actor when he’s doing a movie and hand him a script.’ He then went on to do so many projects.” He continued, “I was so happy that he always called me and said, ‘Hey, Vinny, you want to do this, or do you want to do that?’ He always gave me something different, and I amhappy to say that I am working with Willy on ‘Gravesend,’ his

new project.” “Vinny is a class-act. He is such a talent,” said DeMeo, “And to have him in my projects, it’s so incredible. He’s a great guy, through and through.” Pastore announced that his band, “Big Pussy’s Gangster Squad,” will be playing at the Bar 360 at Resorts World Casino on July 18, beginning at 8 p.m.

Eye on REAL ESTATE Check out Windsor Terrace, a great staycation neighborhood By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

If you’re staycationing in Brooklyn, there’s a neighborhood to visit that you might not have thought of: Windsor Terrace. It’s tucked between Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery. So if you’re going to the park’s BRIC Celebrate! Brooklyn Festival, a stroll around Windsor Terrace’s tree-lined streets is an entertaining preliminary activity. This is the 41st season of the free outdoor concerts at the Prospect Park Bandshell. BRIC is an arts incubator and presenter of free cultural programming. If it’s not a concert night at Prospect Park, you can combine your Windsor Terrace stroll with a movie at Nitehawk Cinema. The theater is at 188 Prospect Park West, just steps away from the edge of Windsor Terrace.

People love this landmarked movie house because ... A. You can drink while you watch the film and eat excellent food that you order from your theater seat. B. There had been a theater on this spot since the 1920s. Then a couple years ago, developer Hidrock Realty decided to build condos on the property with just a small movie theater. There were widespread objections to the condo design. The developer changed course and sold the building to investors connected to Nitehawk. It already operated a popular drink-and-dine movie theater in Williamsburg.

Clouds add drama to this Windsor Terrace streetscape. SPIDER-MAN’S HOUSE

LOVELY LIMESTONE ROWHOUSES IN THE SUMMER SUN A good place to start a walk around Windsor Terrace is outside the F train’s 15th StreetProspect Park Station. This puts

Welcome to leafy, lovely Windsor Terrace. you at the corner of Prospect Park West and Prospect Park Southwest, where a pair of eyecatching tall columns marks the entrance to the park. There’s something else here that might confuse you if you see it on a map before you arrive — a circle that’s a square. When you’re actually standing here, it makes perfect sense. Across from Prospect Park there’s a traffic circle lined with handsome old-fashioned apartment buildings with curving facades. A small piece of land in the middle of the traffic circle has a World War I memorial called Bartel-Pritchard Square. The square commemorates two Brooklyn soldiers who fought and died in that war: Emil Bartel, who’d lived on nearby Windsor Place, and his friend William Pritchard from Bushwick. So. Let’s start walking already. When you head down Prospect Park Southwest, there’s all kinds of architectural eye candy. The great visuals start with limestone rowhouses with angled facades. They are adorned with elaborate decoration on the stonework above their windows and front doors. On the other side of the street, Prospect Park’s tall trees and lush foliage brighten the scenery. Further along, there’s an especially charming home at 85 Prospect Park Southwest. The old-fashioned shingled house is painted green and has window shutters, a mansard roof and a weather vane.

There are numerous interesting turns you can take off Prospect Park Southwest. Whichever direction you go, you’ll find houses with nifty porches, some glassedin and some open-air. Pretty porches are a feature on two single-block streets called Howard Place and Fuller Place that run parallel to each other between Windsor Place and Prospect Avenue. In “The Amazing SpiderMan” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” starring Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone, a house on Fuller Place served as Peter Parker and Aunt May’s home, the website Movie-Locations.com reported. Please don’t email me to tell me they lived in Queens. I know they did. The filmmakers used a Brooklyn location to depict that other borough.

A LANDMARKED FIRE HOUSE Another street where the rowhouses are particularly beautiful is Windsor Place.

And on Seeley Street, some homeowners have turned their front yards into picturesque mini-meadows of wildflowers. Now let’s detour into the 19th century for a minute. Lots were laid out and some streets were built in Windsor Terrace in the early 1850s, but neighborhood development got off to a slow start, a city Landmarks Preservation Commission report indicates. Irish immigrants arrived after the Civil War. By 1890, there were about 150 houses in the neighborhood. Rowhouses were built in the early 1900s. Developer William Calder constructed and sold 700 of them in a 17year span, the LPC report says. The report’s main focus is the Engine Company 240/Battalion 48 Firehouse. Danish-born architect Peter J. Lauritzen designed this Romanesque Revival-style FDNY treasure at 1307-1309 Prospect Ave. It was built in 1895. It’s an individual city landmark.

Eye on REAL ESTATE

Prospect Park is Windsor Terrace’s giant backyard.

Check out Windsor Terrace — Continued from page 14INB — One vantage point from which you can see the firehouse is a pedestrian bridge you enter at the corner of Prospect and Greenwood avenues. The footbridge hangs over the Prospect Expressway, which split Windsor Terrace into two parts when it was built in the 1950s.

A BRONZE SCULPTURE OF LIBERTY Pedestrian bridges are such a novelty to me. This one’s got interesting stuff on both ends of it.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

For instance, the ramp on the other side of the footbridge leads to the corner of Greenwood Avenue and East 5th Street. There, at the edge of Greenwood Playground, there’s a monument to 47 soldiers and sailors from the neighborhood who died while serving in World War I. It’s a bronze relief sculpture of Liberty placing a palm frond — which symbolizes peace — on an altar. An inscription on the altar says, “They gave their lives in the cause of Freedom.” The artist who made the sculpture was Charles Keck. His best-known New York City work is the statue of Father Duffy beside the TKTS discount theater-tickets booth in Times Square. On another corner of Greenwood Avenue and East 5th Street, there’s an ice cream stand that makes slushies out of the Italian ices that are on its menu. They’re staggeringly good. The shop is called Kathy’s Gourmet Italian Ices and Ice Cream. It takes a really large serving of Italian ice to make a slushie, in case you were wondering.

The homeowners on the corner of Caton Avenue and East 4th Street display a small cannon on their lawn that commemorates the Battle of Brooklyn. Caton Avenue was a roadway called Martense Lane during the Revolutionary War. Hessian troops marched on it on their way to the battle.

AN INSTAGRAM-WORTHY PEDESTRIAN OVERPASS

This is Fuller Place, where scenes from “The Amazing Spider-Man” and its sequel were filmed.

This pedestrian overpass casts some serious shadows.

There are so many beautiful blocks in this area. After you weave your way around to the part of the neighborhood where the streets don’t have “East” in their names — which is on the other side of Vanderbilt Street — you’ll find another Prospect Expressway pedestrian bridge. Its entrance is at 10th Avenue and 19th Street. This photogenic footbridge is enclosed with a semicircle of wire mesh. It’s like you’re walking through a tunnel, but up in the air. When you get to the other side, on Tenth Avenue and 18th Street, the wire enclosure casts an abstract pattern of shadows on the sidewalk. Speaking of photogenic, the brick rowhouses on nearby 17th Street are eye-pleasing. At this point, you’re on the north end of the neighborhood — near Prospect Park West, where there are bars and restaurants for a bite to eat before the BRIC Celebrate! Brooklyn Festival. If you stroll in the opposite direction and wind up on the south end of Windsor Terrace, there are fun spots to eat on Fort Hamilton Parkway. There’s also some great housing to see — for instance distinctive redbrick rowhouses on Caton Avenue, which is Windsor Terrace’s southern border.

Damascus Bakeries’ Ed Mafoud honored at 24th annual Bishop DiMarzio Golf Classic BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

O

ne of Brooklyn’s most respected civic leaders, Edward Mafoud, who owns Damascus Bakeries with his brother David, was honored at this year’s 24th Annual Bishop DiMarzio Golf Classic on Thursday, July 11 at the North Hills Country Club in Manhasset. Mafoud has helped continue and broaden his maternal grandfather Hassan Halaby’s business which was started in 1930. Halaby opened Damascus Bakery, a local storefront bakery on Atlantic Avenue that soon gained a reputation for producing the best Middle Eastern pita and lavash breads in the community. Halaby wanted to bring the flavor and feel of his home country, Syria, to his new home in Downtown Brooklyn. After all, it was in Syria that he first learned traditional Middle Eastern baking recipes. “It was 1930, when Brooklyn was a borough of many proud immigrants building neighborhoods,” explained Mafoud. “It was also the time of the Great Depression and Prohibition. My grandfather would work night and day to bake his warm and delicious old world pitas, lavash and flatbreads for his new Brooklyn neighbors.” He was known as “King of the Avenue,” according to Mafoud and through it all his grandfather epitomized the American Dream. “He got married, started a family of four children,

Kieran Harrington, vicar of communication for the Diocese of Brooklyn and chairperson of DeSales Media Group; Jacques Kallassi, co-founder and CEO of Télé Lumière/Noursat; Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio; Bishop Gregory Mansour of the Maronite Eparchy of St. Maron in Brooklyn; and Bill Maier, CEO of DeSales Media Group. including Leila, our mother, and he bought a house just a few blocks away from the bakery,” Mafoud continued. In the late ‘50s, Leila married Mafoud’s father Tony. “During the 1960’s, ’70s, & ’80s, our father, Anthony Mafoud, and our uncle, Henry Halaby, introduced our pitas, lavash and other traditional baked goods made with old-fashioned excellence to the other boroughs of New York as well as to other cities in America. Our products now sell in all 50 states, and even other countries,” said Mafoud. Today, Damascus Bakeries carries on the old world tradition as new generations discover what

Mafoud’s grandfather created 80 years ago. In fact, the Mafouds have found a way to pay homage to their Brooklyn roots with their popular new Brooklyn Bred Bistro Breads product line. “We love baking for our Brooklyn community,” said Mafoud. “Every loaf is an opportunity for us to bake authentic — and truly outspoken — Bred that reaches out — and speaks out — to all, no doubt with a Brooklyn accent.” Aside from continuing the legacy of his family’s business, Mafoud is a civic leader in every sense of the word. He is chairperson of the board

Ridge and a trustee on the Staten Island University Foundation Board, and he also serves on the board of the Salaam Club of New York. Mafoud and his wife Marisol are the parents of Leila, Kamil and Lolita. The other honoree at this year’s event was Msgr. Alfred LoPinto, president and chief executive officer of the Catholic Charities of Brooklyn and Queens who received the Distinguished Clergy of the Year Award. DiMarzio and DeSales Media Group, the communications arm of the Catholic Diocese, presented a check for $100,000 to Télé Lumière/Noursat, the first and only Christian television network in Lebanon and the Middle East. “Ed Mafoud, a man of great faith, has a very distinguished record of success in business and in service to others,” Diocese of Brooklyn Deputy Press Secretary John Quaglione told this paper. “It was only appropriate that Ed was honored at this year’s Bishop DiMarzio Golf Classic which raised money to support the efforts of Télé Lumière/Noursat to spread Christian values throughout the Middle East.”

OPINION SWING AT WINDMILLS

A

lthough no one would expect any mayor to be chained to his or her desk, Mayor de Blasio’s Don Quixote effort to become president has taken him out of the city far too many days over the past four months. Although modern communications can keep him in touch, leadership is never a phone call away. For that, you have to be on the scene. That was apparent last weekend when midtown Manhattan went dark. The city’s emergency services, including police, fire and EMS, did their usual outstanding job. But what if? Sometimes you needed your elected leader in place, leading. Sure, as I said earlier,

A

no mayor can be expected to be in town all the time. Nevertheless, the citizens of our city should not be okay with their mayor being out of state in the past 120-day period better than 30 days. If Bill de Blasio plans to keep this travel schedule up until next February after the New Hampshire primary, then he should resign. For all practical purposes, using his present schedule as a yardstick, he would have been away another two months. *** I saw on social media a picture of Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis as a guest of the National Council of Young Israel placing a note in the holy Western Wall in Jerusalem on a recent trip.

Several months ago, my friend Neil Mostofsky asked me if I would like him to place a note from me in the wall during his visit. He told me that in Jewish tradition, the message written on notes placed in this wall are considered to be direct communication with God. I found this thought extremely comforting and of course gave him a short note. I thanked him in the past for his thoughtfulness. Allow me to thank him again. *** As some of you know, several years ago I became ill, with the end result of being placed on dialysis three days a week, four hours a day for about 18 months. I was fortunate enough to have a friend who was willing to be tested

The policy will emphasize more effective and convenient treatment options, including a variety of in-home hemodialysis options, making more kidneys available for transplant and improving preventive care and education.

and turned out to be a perfect match, allowing me to obtain a kidney transplant. Just short of two years later, I am doing great.

BEYOND WORDS

ugust of 2015, two months after Donald Trump launched his campaign, referring to Mexicans as criminals and rapists, two Boston men were charged with a hate crime for brutally assaulting a sleeping, Hispanic man. One told police he did it because “Donald Trump was right. All these illegals need to be deported.” Asked about the attackers days later, Trump replied, “People who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again.” Kicking and beating a man with a metal pole doesn’t make America great. Urinating on a bloodied victim is not a display of love of country. Addressing such actions as followers simply being passionate is un-American. And, in that case, it was racist. It’s no surprise Trump told four particular

congresswomen they should “go back” to the “broken and crime infested places from which they came.” Though all citizens, with three having been born here, for some reason he felt it made sense to tell these non-white Americans to go back to the countries they come from. He confirmed what he meant the following day, adding, “If you’re not happy in the U.S., if you’re complaining all the time, you can leave.” As someone who spent an inordinate amount of time complaining about how unhappy he was with the previous administration, by his own logic he should have left the United States years ago. But nobody, even his most vehement critics, ever considered telling Trump to leave the country. His campaign slogan implied America wasn’t great and his inauguration speech depicted “American Carnage,” yet he feels

comfortable telling certain people dissatisfied with where our country is that they don’t belong here. He and four of his kids are children of immigrants. He has married two immigrants. Yet, in his mind, women of color who disagree with him — the only one of whom not born here having been a citizen longer than his current wife — need to leave.

Whether it’s President Obama, women of color in Congress or recently telling a group of Jewish Americans that Netanyahu is their prime minister, Donald Trump continues to make clear that if you are what he considers an “other,” you are not a real American.

His less direct approval of racism, like characterizing white supremacists

COMMON SENSE I rarely talk publicly about my situation and frankly, while I was ill, I kept up a full schedule at work and traveling, which included weekly trips to Albany. It was not easy, but I got through it. My reason for bringing this up now is to bring attention to the amazing announcement President Trump made this week relating to kidney disease, dialysis and transplants. Coming in the form of an executive order aimed at streamlining the overburdened kidney care and transplant system, it will, in the words of our

president, “bring new hope to millions of Americans suffering from kidney disease.” Thank you, President Trump! *** Allow me to wish my friend New York State Conservative Party Treasurer and Brooklyn Chairperson Fran Vella-Marrone a happy birthday! On the actual day, July 11, Fran was participating in a Conservative Party event in Westchester County, but I know her family was coming in from around the country last weekend to enjoy it with her. Happy Birthday, Fran!

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

in Charlottesville as “fine people” or his reluctance to disavow KKK leaders’ support in 2016, has moved to more overt statements that divide Americans along racial and ethnic lines. This is the same man the Nixon administration found had refused to rent to black tenants. The same man who still insists the Central Park Five should be executed even after someone else confessed to the crime they served years for and DNA evidence exonerated them. The same man who pushed Birtherism for years, based on the notion that a black president must have been born in Africa. Whether it’s President Obama, women of color in Congress or recently telling a group of Jewish Americans

that Netanyahu is their prime minister, Donald Trump continues to make clear that if you are what he considers an “other,” you are not a real American. We’ve seen the ramifications of this sentiment locally the past few years. Seven months ago, a woman was caught on camera in the subway assaulting another woman with an umbrella while calling her an anti-Asian slur. One year ago, a woman was caught on camera on the S53 bus threatening a woman in a headscarf, screaming, “She thinks she has rights that she doesn’t have” and, “Is that ICE? They’re here for you.” Two years ago, a man was caught on camera in the subway telling an Iranian couple to “go back to your own country,” before threatening

to kill them. A month after the 2016 election, NYPD Officer Aml Elsokary, previously honored as a hero for saving a baby from a burning building, was accosted by a man in Bay Ridge who was yelling, “ISIS bitch! I will cut your throat! Go back to your country. At the time, she was with her son and wearing a hijab. Words matter. Eighteen Republican members of Congress condemned Trump’s remarks the next day, but only 18. Only Sen. Tim Scott and Rep. Will Hurd specifically acknowledged it was racist. Some say the ‘go back to where you came from’ refrain is not who we are, but it is part of who we are. We have all heard that racist line in our lifetimes. Just never from our president.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

Thousands enjoy Third Avenue’s 2019 Summer Stroll on 3rd Second stroll to get underway on July 19 at 5 p.m.

For the eighth consecutive year the Merchants of Third Avenue, led by President Bob Howe, launched the latest edition of the Summer Stroll on 3rd in conjunction with the city’s Weekend Walks initiative. “It was ideal for strollers, diners, music lovers and Third Avenue businesses,” Howe said. “Especially for parents looking for ways to enjoy quality time with their kids, the variety of fun things to do was really fine, from puppets to face painting and other games. “One of our goals is to bring more foot traffic onto the avenue as we compete — unfairly, it might seem — with mail-order businesses like

Amazon. And we continue to notice an influx of parents from other parts of Brooklyn who are responding to the excellent reputation this wonderful event has acquired in just a matter of years.” For more information on the program, visit summerstrollon3rd.com and be sure to share your photos on social media: @summerstrollon3rd on Facebook and Instagram, and @summerstroll3rd on Twitter. If you’re inclined to take a selfie on the big day — and we know you are — be sure to use the hashtag #SummerStrollSelfie and share it on the aforementioned channels. Make sure all postings are shared publicly so everyone can see them!

Hello Again: Neil Diamond . . . from Brooklyn to Broadway BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

B

rooklyn-born balladeer Neil Diamond has quite the story to tell and an incredible catalog of songs to go with it. Now that story will be told in a new, as-yet-untitled Broadway musical which will be directed by Tony award-winner Michael Mayer. While similar era bio-musicals such as “Jersey Boys” and “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical” have done well, other such productions have faltered, including recent musicals based on the lives of Cher, Donna Summer and Gloria Estefan. What Diamond has going for him is a devoutly dedicated legion of fans who have followed his career for over half a century. Acclaimed veteran music journalist, author and former Billboard magazine contributing editor Jim Bessman says that Diamond’s life is tailor-made for the stage. “You’d think Neil Diamond would be perfect for Broadway. He’s one of the great pop hit singer-songwriters, going back to the same fabled 1960s Brill Building pop songwriting era in New

York that spawned Carole King, so he’d appeal to the same audience that’s made ‘Beautiful: The Carole King Musical’ an award-winning and long-running Broadway hit,” said Bessman, who previously interviewed Diamond. “And like King, Diamond’s career has also extended far beyond his initial ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll hits — which he wrote and recorded when he was a young man, and which were a big reason he eventually gained entry into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — to attain an adult pop sensibility that lifted him from a rock audience base to the mainstream and an arena concert touring attraction,” he added. Diamond was born in Coney Island on Jan. 24, 1941. His father owned a dry goods business and the family lived in several Brooklyn neighborhoods throughout Diamond’s childhood. He attended Erasmus Hall High School in Flatbush, where he and Barbra Streisand sang in a choral group together, but did not know each other at the time. Years later, in 1978, they would team up to record the classic “You Don’t Bring Me Flowers,” which remains Diamond’s highest charting single.

Diamond released 58 charting singles between 1966 and 1986, including 13 Top-10 hits and three that reached number one. Among those were now standards like “Cracklin’ Rosie,” “I Am…I Said,” “Song

Sung Blue,” “Longfellow Serenade,” "Hello Again" and arguably his most popular hit, “Sweet Caroline,” which climbed to number four in 1969. Diamond also wrote songs for other artists, including the Monkees’ Number One hit “I’m a Believer” and its Number Two

follow-up “A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You.” “Diamond has also written for the films ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ and ‘The Jazz Singer,’ so as he himself has adapted his music to fit theatrical formats, so too should it be adaptable to the stage,” explained Bessman. “And topping it off, you have a creative team including writer Anthony McCarten, who wrote the screenplay for ‘Bohemian Rhapsody,’ and fellow Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Songwriters Hall of Famer Bob Gaudio, who wrote many of the Four Seasons’ hits and was an original member of the group, as well as the catalyst behind ‘Jersey Boys,’” Bessman continued. “Gaudio is also a huge fan of Diamond, and presented him with the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s most prestigious honor, the Johnny Mercer Award, two years ago at the organization’s annual awards ceremony,” Bessman added. Diamond ’s Brooklyn roots should factor into the new production. His most autobiographical ballad, “Brooklyn Roads,” is the quintessential song about a young boy growing up in the borough. In the song, Diamond

nostalgically closes his eyes and dreams himself back to his childhood, growing up with his brother “two floors above the butcher.” We can smell the “cookin’ in the hallway,” he sings, and the poetic and poignant imagery only adds to this masterpiece of American songwriting. Diamond has called this his most literal and personal composition about his childhood aspirations, and there is no doubt he knows those Brooklyn roads well. This song epitomizes why Diamond remains one of the most admired songwriters of his generation. Having sold more than 115 million records worldwide, Diamond retired from performing last year after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The musical’s release date has yet to be announced. “It would seem that Diamond’s music could easily fuel a successful Broadway musical, what with such key people involved who can turn his life as a Brooklyn boy who became one of the great pop tunesmiths into an entertaining context for the songs,” said Bessman. “No doubt theater-goers will leave singing “Sweet Caroline,” he added.
