This past Friday, Nov. 1, the Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator held their annual Fall Senior Living Health and Financial Expo at Dyker Beach Golf Course. Home Reporter executive Marc Hibsher was able to meet with many vendors who came prepared with a wealth of significant information for a large audience of seniors who attended the event, free of charge. Hibsher (right) was pleased to check in with Bay Ridge AARP Chapter #3630, led by President Peter Killen (left), along with Treasurer Patricia Killen and Home Reporter "Generally Speaking” columnist Ted General, who also serves on the board for the chapter.

Gounardes dismisses Golden staffer’s pending lawsuit as ‘frivolous’ BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

The bruising campaign between Democratic state Sen. Andrew Gounardes and his Republican rival Marty Golden ended a year ago, but the controversy surrounding that 2018 election is still exploding today. Gounardes, who beat the longtime state senator in the election, has now been threatened with a defamation lawsuit by a Golden campaign staffer. The plaintiff, Ian Walsh Reilly, is seeking $5.5 million in damages. Gounardes dismissed the

threatened lawsuit as frivolous. Reilly, who has filed papers in New York State Supreme Court, plans to sue Gounardes and his campaign, charging that the Bay Ridge pol defamed him by falsely claiming that he was a member of the far-right group Proud Boys. The Proud Boys has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Reilly was a paid member of Golden’s campaign staff and served as manager of the campaign office.  For the full story, see brooklynreporter.com.

With parking spaces along Third Avenue at a minimum, it now appears that more space will be lost as a popular parking lot is earmarked to become the site of a five-story commercial and residential building. According to the website YIMBY, permits have been filed to turn the parking lot at 302 81st Street in Bay Ridge into a “mixed-use” building. The lot, which was formerly a gas station, has been used as a parking lot for customers of Brooklyn Market, which is located directly

across the street from the space. Meridian Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications for the projected 50-foot-tall structure. The new building will have space for 32 residences and 260 square feet of commercial space. Neighborhood residents have been voicing their concerns about the development. “Well, where to begin? We already have many empty storefronts so why build a complex with more retail space?” wondered resident Kathy Byrne, who lives on 81st Street.  For the full story, see brooklynreporter.com.

Big decisions pending as Catholic school merger moves forward BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

In the wake of the blockbuster announcement that Saint Anselm Catholic Academy and Holy Angels Catholic Academy will merge into a single school, work has already begun to bring the two venerable education institutions together under one roof. The new school, to be called Bay Ridge Catholic Academy, is expected to be ready to open in September of 2020. It will be located in the building that currently houses St. Anselm Catholic Academy at 365 83rd St. Bay Ridge Catholic Academy will start off with an endowment of more than $1 million, according to a letter sent to parents by the board of directors at St. Anselm Catholic Academy. The new school will charge $4,900 tuition per student per year. Students coming from

DOT plan to change 99th Street traffic raises concerns BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

A plan by the Department

of Transportation to reverse the direction of traffic on a single block of 99th Street is raising concerns for residents

and Community Board 10. Under the DOT’s plan, traffic on the block of 99th Street between Shore Road and Third Avenue would flow from Third Avenue toward Shore Road. Traffic currently

flows from Shore Road toward Third Avenue. The change in direction is part of an overall DOT plan to improve pedestrian safety in the area of Third Avenue from Marine Avenue to 99th Street.

DOT plans to paint curb extensions to shorten the distances pedestrians have to cross the street. The agency is also looking at installing a hardened centerline on Third Avenue. A hardened centerline

is a series of structures, resembling bowling pins, which are placed in a row to slow down drivers making turns.  For the full story, see brooklynreporter.com.

The intersection of Marine and Third avenues contains numerous safety hazards, according to Community Board 10.

ized by the Bay Ridge Community Council (BRCC), its president Ralph Succar and members including Maria Makrinos and Joanna Succar. Some of the businesses that generously donate their window space for the students to paint include Connors and Sullivan Attorneys at Law, Empire State Bank of Third Avenue, Brooklyn Market, Northfield Bank on Third Avenue, Foodtown on Third Avenue, Bay Ridge Family Eyecare Optical on Bay

Monsters, bats, witches, ghouls and goblins permeated the neighborhood as 300 artists from 30 District 20 schools were invited to decorate the windows of local businesses along shopping strips in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights for the 67th annual Halloween window-painting contest. This year’s theme was fall

scenes and the result was a wide array of creatively conceived paintings that amazed, impressed and in some cases scared viewers with their originality. All students were awarded a gold, silver or bronze medal for their artistic efforts. It all starts with a painting that children create at school and submit in hopes of having it selected for display on a storefront window. This year’s event took place on Tuesday, Oct. 29, sponsored and organ-

Local lawmakers and civic group host Halloween festival in Owl’s Head Park BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER @BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

At the recent NIA Community Services Spooktacular event, State Sen. Andrew Gounardes said he was anxiously anticipating the annual Owl’s Head Park Halloween Festival because he wanted to sample some of the dark chocolate trick or treat candy they’d be giving away. Well, Gounardes, City Councilmember Justin Brannan and the NIA were sponsors of the fright fest that took place on a dark and rainy Halloween eve on Thursday, Oct 31. “Owl’s Head Halloween was a great party with candy and costumes galore,” Gounardes told this paper. “I was glad we could throw a festival for Halloween-lovers of all ages to enjoy, filled with old traditions and new ones. There’s nothing quite like coming together as a community to celebrate the

spirit of the season, and I look forward to next year!” There were kids of all ages decked out in costumes that ranged from superheroes like Superman, Supergirl and Spider

Man to scary clowns a la “It” to little girls dressed like Maleficent and a number of revelers channeling the Joker. “The NIA is back in action,” said NIA Founder and

President Mike Bove. It was, he noted, the group’s “first time down Bay Ridge helping the community establish a new frontier as has never been seen before — truth, justice and the American way following tradition. We’re going to have fun because it’s all about the children.” Brannan was happy to partner with Gounardes for this year’s event. “Indeed, a great time was had by all, this All Hallows Eve. Andrew and I wanted to keep this tradition going, to do something fun for the young kids and families in the neighborhood — because that’s what Halloween is all about,” said Brannan “The weather held up and we had a huge crowd. Everyone was having a great time and there were so many creative costumes! I ate too much candy and got a stomach ache but it was worth it. Next year, we’ll do it even bigger and better,” added Brannan.

Bensonhurst home spreads Halloween cheer with spooky decorations BY JAIME DEJESUS

JDEJESUS @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Halloween is a bit more festive at one Bensonhurst home. Each year, Brandon Policastro and the Basile family transform the outside of their home on 63rd Street between

17th and 18th Avenues into a Halloween-themed extravaganza. Locals can find such frightening fan favorites as Michael Myers from “Halloween” and Pennywise from “It.” A sign that reads Haunted Estates greets visitors. While Policastro and the Basiles have been decorating

for many years, “The last four years we have been really going all out and we’ve been making it really special and worthwhile, not just for us but for the community and the children in Bensonhurst,” said Policastro. Among the highlights setting the mood are orange lights, cobwebs and a scare-

crow. “We love to decorate for Halloween because we love to see people come to the area to check out our decorations. It makes the neighborhood family-friendly,” he said.  For the full story, see brooklynreporter.com.

Dyker Heights turns into ‘Dyker Frights’ BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Dyker Heights is worldfamous for its Christmas lights display but the neighborhood’s homeowners also go all-out for Halloween, decorating their front lawns with eye-popping scenes of zombies playing on swings, dead people crawling out of graves and giant spiders peering into windows. A stroll through the streets of Dyker Heights, as well as its neighboring community of Bay Ridge, reveals dozens of creatively decorated houses that are giving visitors chills and laughs at the same time. “Dyker Heights residents are very proud of their homes. They like to decorate and entertain. The decorations are different and inventive,” Dyker Heights Civic Association President Fran Vella-Marrone told the

Home Reporter. The decorating frenzy in the neighborhood “has really picked up over the past few years,” Vella-Marrone said. As a result, Dyker Heights gets a lot of visitors on Halloween. “And we get a massive amount of kids trickor-treating. You can’t even move on 13th Avenue,” VellaMarrone said. Here is some of what photographer Tom Hilton found when he traveled around the area with his camera: skulls hanging from roofs, zombies dancing on lawns, a friendlylooking Frankenstein sitting on a front porch, a sign in front of one home reading “Home of the Wicked Witch,” two zombies playing pattycake and lots of gravestones.  For the full story, see brooklynreporter.com.

Trick-or-treaters delight BY JAIME DEJESUS

Kids in costume collected candy-a-plenty at the office of Assemblymember Bill Colton, who donned a bit of a costume himself over the course of the afternoon.

There were plenty of treats, no tricks, for kids visiting one local elected official. Assemblymember William Colton, who represents Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Bath Beach and Dyker Heights, held his annual Halloween candy giveaway on Thursday., Oct. 31, at his community office, 155 Kings Highway. Hundreds of kids visit the office each year donned in their favorite costumes, such as pirates, superheroes and ghosts in hopes of scoring sweet treats. “Colton and his office staff

set up a table in front of his Community Office the afternoon of this Halloween and distributed treat bags to children dressed in their Halloween costumes,” stated the assemblymember’s Facebook page. “Most children were accompanied by their proud parents who also snapped photos. Midway through the event the Assemblyman donned his own costume. The predicted rain held off and it was a great fun afternoon for all.” “I know that it’s a lot of fun for kids, which makes me extremely happy. It is very important to keep our community united no matter what your background is,” Colton told this paper last year.

PUBLIC NOTICE COMBINED FINAL NOTICE AND PUBLIC REVIEW OF A PROPOSED ACTIVITY IN A 100-YEAR FLOODPLAIN AND WETLAND, AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS CANARSIE PIER ACCESS IMPROVEMENT PROJECT BROOKLYN, KINGS COUNTY, NEW YORK November 8, 2019

Name of Responsible Entity and Recipient: New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR), 25 Beaver Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10004, in cooperation with the New York State Housing Trust Fund Corporation (HTFC), of the same address. Contact: Matt Accardi (212)480-6265. Pursuant to 24 CFR Section 58.43, this combined Final Notice and Public Review of a Proposed Activity in a 100-year Floodplain and Wetland and Notice of Intent to Request Release of Funds (NOIRROF) satisfies two separate procedural requirements for project activities proposed to be undertaken by HCR. Project Description: The Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery (GOSR), an office of HCR’s HTFC, is responsible for the direct administration of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) program in New York State. GOSR proposes to provide CDBG-DR funding ($2,214,553) for improvements to the pedestrian and bicycle access along Rockaway Parkway and Shore Parkway (the “Proposed Project”) located at Shore Parkway Service Road North, Rockaway Parkway, and Canarsie Veterans Circle, Brooklyn, New York. These improvements will provide access to the Superstorm Sandy-damaged Canarsie Pier, mitigate safety hazards, enhance local mobility, lessen the negative effects of traffic congestion, and build a more resilient community. There will be no increase in impermeable surfaces. The Proposed Project is categorically excluded from the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) by HUD regulations at 24 C.F.R. Part 58. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this project is on file and available for review and copying in person. PUBLIC EXPLANATION OF A PROPOSED ACTIVITY IN A 100-YEAR FLOODPLAIN AND WETLAND This work will be located in 100-year floodplain (SHFA Zone AE) and a wetland adjacent area. Since the action will include construction in a wetland adjacent area and floodplain, Executive Orders 11990 and 11988 requires that the project not be supported if there are practicable alternatives to development in floodplain and new construction in wetland adjacent areas. The New York State Rising Community Reconstruction Program is structured to provide eligible communities’ resources and expertise to build projects resilient to future flooding events. The primary alternative for the current Proposed Project is the “no action” alternative. Not undertaking the Project would not be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Canarsie NY Rising Community Reconstruction Plan to provide improvements to the Belt Parkway underpass and roundabout to increase pedestrian and cyclist ridership and reduce automobile use to Canarsie Pier as well as provide pedestrian safety. Greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants from cars would not be decreased and there would be no increase in the environmental sustainability of Canarsie and the surrounding communities. Additionally, the health and social benefits would not be realized including access improvements that would result in improved conditions for biking and walking in Canarsie, address existing safety concerns and increase the use of alternative modes of transportation and providing expanded opportunities for recreation and active living for residents. Finally, improving access to Canarsie Pier may attract new visitors to the Pier as well as to the larger Community, which could contribute to the local economy. The Proposed Project would not have direct or indirect effects on the moderation of floods. The existing floodplain area would not be changed. Best Management Practices (BMP) will be implemented to prevent impacts to the floodplain, adjacent areas and waterways associated with Project construction. Once construction is completed, the function of the floodplain would remain unaltered. Applicable permits from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the United States Army Corps of Engineers will be acquired before work is commenced. The Applicant will be bound by any permit stipulations or mitigation measures listed in permits acquired for this project. There are three primary purposes for this notice. First, people who may be affected by activities in floodplains and wetland adjacent areas and those who have an interest in the protection of the natural environment have an opportunity to express their concerns and provide information about these areas. Second, adequate public notice is an important public education tool. The dissemination of information and request for public comment about floodplains/ wetlands can facilitate and enhance federal efforts to reduce the risks associated with the occupancy and modification of these special areas. Third, as a matter of fairness, when the federal government determines it will participate in actions taking place in floodplains/ wetlands, it must inform those who may be put at greater or continued risk. Public Review: Public viewing of the ERR and Floodplain Management & Protection of Wetlands Determination Documents are available in person Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM at the following address: Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, 25 Beaver Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10004. Contact: Matt Accardi (212) 480-6265. The Floodplain Management and Protection of Wetlands documents are also available online at http://stormrecovery.ny.gov/environmental-docs. Further information may be requested by writing to the above address, emailing NYSCDBG_DR_ER@nyshcr.org or by calling (212) 480-6265. This combined notice is being sent to individuals and groups known to be interested in these activities, local news media, appropriate local, state and federal agencies, the regional office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency having jurisdiction, and to the HUD Field Office, and is being published in a newspaper of general circulation in the affected community. Public Comments on the Proposed Activity within a Floodplain and Wetland and NOI/RROF: Any individual, group or agency may submit written comments on the Proposed Project. The public is hereby advised to specify in their comments which “notice” their comments address. Comments should be submitted via email, in the proper format, on or before November 15, 2019 at NYSCDBG_DR_ER@nyshcr.org. Written comments may also be submitted at the following address, or by mail, in the proper format, to be received on or before November 15, 2019: Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, 25 Beaver Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10004. All comments must be received on or before 5pm on November 15, 2019 or they will not be considered. If modifications result from public comment, these will be made prior to proceeding with the expenditure of funds. REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS AND CERTIFICATION On or about November 18, 2019, the HCR certifying officer will submit a request and certification to HUD for the release of CDBG-DR funds appropriated under Public Law 113-2, as amended and as authorized by related laws and policies for the purpose of implementing the New York CDBG-DR Action Plan. HCR certifies to HUD that Matt Accardi, in his capacity as Certifying Officer, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the U.S. federal courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows GOSR to use CDBG-DR program funds. Objection to Release of Funds: HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and GOSR’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later). Potential objectors may contact HUD or the GOSR Certifying Officer to verify the actual last day of the objection period. The only permissible grounds for objections claiming a responsible entity’s non-compliance with 24 CFR Part 58 are: (a) Certification was not executed by HCR’s Certifying Officer; (b) the responsible entity has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the responsible entity has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before release of funds and approval of environmental certification; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to Tennille Smith Parker, Director, Disaster Recovery and Special Issues Division, Office of Block Grant Assistance, U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development, 451 7th Street SW, Washington, DC 20410, Phone: (202) 402-4649. Matt Accardi Certifying Officer November 8, 2019

Councilmember Justin Brannan lays it all out there on Twitter. “Never took a poli sci class. Not a lawyer. Toured the world in a van. Love helping people,” he wrote in a thumbnail description of himself on his home page. Brannan, born and raised in Bay Ridge, took a circular route to public service but said he wouldn’t have it any other way. He is now in his second year on the City Council. “I still consider myself a kid from the neighborhood,” he said. Prior to winning his Council seat in 2017, he was an aide to Councilmember Vincent Gentile and before that worked in finance at Bear Stearns, was a radio announcer and toured the world as a guitarist in punk rock bands like Indecision and Most Precious Blood. He also owned a business, the Art Room, with his wife, Leigh Holliday Brannan, and his mother, Mary Brannan. “I was a touring musician. I was a clerk. I think it makes you a better politician. Empathy is such an important part of being an elected official,” Brannan, a Democrat representing the 43rd Council District (Bay RidgeDyker Heights-parts of Bensonhurst) told the Home Reporter in a phone interview. When his constituents talk about their struggles to make ends meet, he can identify with them, he said. “I’ve been there,” he added. Brannan noted that elected officials these days have all sorts of backgrounds and that legislative chambers are not filled with only lawyers. U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for example, was a bartender. “It was never on my radar to go into politics,” said Brannan, a Xaverian High School graduate. “But I was always searching for something bigger than myself. I wanted more than a paycheck.” It was while he was a touring musician in the 1990s that he felt his life changing. “I fell in love with New York City while touring. I realized how much I missed it,” he said. Going into politics, “wasn’t a conscious decision,” he said. “But I felt it was time to give something back.” He felt “a magnetic pull” toward working at the local level. “Local government just clicked,” he said. “I thought I could make my neighborhood a better place.” Part of his job as a lawmaker entails navigating city government to get things done for constituents. “I try to cut through the noise. There is no Democratic or Republican way to pick up garbage. I don’t care what party you belong to. I’m a proud Democrat. But my job is to serve,” he said. “My job is to make their day-to-day life better,” he said, referring to his constituents. “For most people, their immediate concern is their commute to work on the subway. When

I’m in the drugstore buying toothpaste and someone comes up to me, they don’t usually talk about national politics. They ask about potholes and fixing streetlights.” Brannan has a district office at 8203 Third Ave. but doesn’t wait for constituents to seek him out. He makes use of social media by regularly posting updates on Facebook and Twitter about street closures, civic meetings, alternate-side-of-the-street parking regulations and legislation. He feels it’s a good way to communicate with constituents. “You’ve got to meet people where they’re at,” he said. And constituents reciprocate. More and more of them are choosing to contact him via tweets or by posting comments on Facebook. While constituent services are a large part of his job, there is also legislating. “I love legislation. I love when someone comes into the office and has a suggestion on how something could be made better. That’s legislation from the ground up,” he said. The first piece of legislation he passed was a bill to mandate opioid addiction prevention education in the city’s middle schools. “The other day, we passed a bill to create the Mayor’s Office of Animal Welfare. It will be the first of its kind. No other city in the country has an office like this,” he said. Brannan successfully shepherded a bill through the Council to ban food vendors from the area where the Dyker Heights Christmas lights display is concentrated. Another bill Brannan introduced would provide free eye exams and eyeglasses to lowincome New Yorkers. Issues he is working on include improving the waterfront in preparation for the next Superstorm Sandy. He is chairperson of the Committee on Resiliency and Waterfronts. “We can’t wait around for the federal government to act. It’s a race against the clock,” he said. “One of the challenges of this job is balancing the unique needs of this district with the larger goals of the city,” Brannan said. “Your job is to represent the 175,000 people in your district and look out for their needs. But you are also part of a legislative body with 51 members.” He has found commonality with councilmembers, particularly those who, like him, represent outer borough districts. “I think it’s often Manhattan vs. the outer boroughs. People in the outer boroughs have a very different experience than people who live in Manhattan, especially when it comes to public transportation,” he said, adding that he fights for Brooklyn to get respect. “Lower Manhattan is the economic engine of the city, but the fuel for that engine comes from the outer boroughs,” he said.

hat do you think — should Conan receive a medal for the great work he did under the command of his Special Forces handler? I think they both deserve some official recognition, although I do not think a Purple Heart is appropriate. I would continue to reserve that medal for military personnel wounded in combat. In fact, it is time for the military to create a special medal strictly for war animals that play key roles, from taking down terrorists to sniffing out bombs, as well as many other tasks. The British since 1943 have awarded the PDSA Dickin Medal to honor the work of military animals. There is an American

award for valor exhibited by military animals. Created by the American Humane Society, it is given out in cooperation with the military. Four working military animals were presented with this award by leaders of the American military in 2018. But, these are actually Humane Society awards. This is the perfect time for the military to create their own. *** I want to alert “Radio Free Bay Ridge” about a problem with its Twitter account.

system keeps on knocking me off. Please fix the problem with your account. So many of us in the community need to see what you all are putting out. After all, is that not what free speech “Radio Free Bay Ridge” is all about? *** President Trump is one in a long line of New Yorkers who have exited our state. The left wants to create a whole story around what they consider his reasons. To me, and I think many New Yorkers, as well as New York-to-Florida transplants, it is simple and obvious. You do not need to be a billionaire to wish to save money in taxes. In fact, as we all know, every year, countless ordinary New Yorkers retire

Regardless, many average New Yorkers find themselves saving, between property taxes and income taxes, tens of thousands per year.

to Florida, which assesses no personal income tax and minimal property taxes for residents. In addition, other costs — from transportation to healthcare — are lower. You do pay a sales tax comparable to the one you pay in New York State.

DOING MORE WITH LESS

n addition to being the last day of New York’s first-ever round of early voting, this past Sunday also marked one year until the 2020 election. High profile races will be on the ballot next year, from state senators to assemblymembers to congressional reps, but obviously none more important than the office of the presidency. Whichever candidate you select for a seat in the legislatures in Albany and Washington in 2020, whoever receives the most votes will be the winner. Thanks to the Electoral College, that won’t necessarily be the case for the highest office in the land. The 2016 presidential election went to the candidate with nearly three million fewer votes, but that was not an aberration. Two of the past five presidential elections have gone to the person with fewer votes,

meaning that since 2000, 40 percent of the time, the winner has been the candidate who in any other race, anywhere else in the world, would be the loser. In that same span of time, only one president’s tenure in the White House began after actually receiving the most votes. At the time the Electoral College was written into the Constitution in 1787, the largest state had about 19 times the population of the smallest state. Today, the most populous state is 66 times the size of the smallest, a disparity the framers of the Constitution surely did not anticipate. And of the nearly 750,000 people that made Virginia the most populous state in 1787, four in 10 of them were enslaved, which brings us to the primary reason we wound up with the electoral college: the three-fifths compromise.

In the case of billionaires, savings can be in the tens of millions. Regardless, many average New Yorkers find themselves saving, between property taxes and income taxes, tens of thousands per year. I also think it is clear that the president has had enough, with the treatment he has been given by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio. As much as you need a thick skin, which the president does not possess, when you participate in politics, the governor crossed the line with his “good riddance” comment. Cuomo, who on a

radio show last year made it clear that conservatives were not welcome in our state, has repeatedly shown that he cannot tolerate those who disagree with him. This is a very poor character trait for anyone holding public office. *** I wish to thank the Kings County Conservative Party, its Chairperson Fran Vella-Marrone, and its officers David Ryan, Nanci Roden and Ross Brady, for honoring me with their James Gay Memorial Award. I knew Jim well and could hardly be more pleased about receiving an award in his name.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

T here were several reasons the Constitution didn’t simply use the national popular vote to decide who wins the presidential election, and different factions had different motivations for resisting that straightforward method, but the biggest impediment, by far, was the southern slave-holding states. Some say that eliminating the Electoral College would give less importance to smaller states, but quite simply, it would give all Americans equality in terms of the weight of their vote.

The decennial Census that the Constitution requires ultimately determines the number of electoral votes states receive. Southern states wanted to include their

entire slave population for apportionment, while anti-slaver y delegates wanted only free persons counted. The “peculiar institution” of slavery, as Lincoln would refer to it, created the peculiar mathematical compromise of counting only three-fifths of persons held as property with no rights. Slavery and the direct electoral ramifications of it were amended out of the Constitution over 150 years ago, but the electoral college system our nation’s original sin fomented is still the method we use to select our leader. But, in a democracy, where a foundational principle is “one person, one vote,” it is undemocratic to give people voting in Wyoming far greater influence because their state has fewer people.

Some say that eliminating the Electoral College would give less importance to smaller states, but quite simply, it would give all Americans equality in terms of the weight of their vote. Some say using the popular vote would mean candidates would no longer pay attention to rural areas, but the combined population of the nation’s 50 largest cities only accounts for 15 percent of all Americans. In our current system, candidates spend an inordinate amount of attention on a few battleground states, while other states that go overwhelmingly for one party or the other are ignored. Conservatives in New York feel that their vote for president does not matter because in the Electoral College’s winnertakes-all format, Republican candidates with no opportunity to win any electoral

votes in our state ignore it completely. Longtime Brooklyn Rep. Emanuel Celler shepherded a resolution through the House in 1969 to amend the Constitution to use the popular vote to determine the result of presidential elections, and although a majority of the Senate favored it, it didn’t reach the necessary two-thirds threshold and died. It is unlikely those benefiting from the status quo would be in favor of moving to a true “one person, one vote” system. Everybody’s vote should matter. Everybody’s vote should count equally, regardless of their party or where they live. Unfortunately, that is not where we find ourselves, which is why we all must make the most of our votes, even if they may count for less here in New York.

Then at around 9 p.m., the duo attacked a 37-year-old woman walking along 64th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, according to the police, again approaching from behind, covering her mouth and throwing her to the ground.

they nabbed $350 from her purse and fled the scene. Finally, at around 10:50 p.m., the suspects approached a 57-year-old woman walking along 67th Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, covered her mouth and threw her to the ground.

News From Your Neighborhood BABE RUTH’S B’KLYN DODGER UNIFORM IS UP FOR AUCTION

BOROUGHWIDE — Baseball great Babe Ruth is known for his years of stardom as a player, first with the Boston Red Sox and then with the New York Yankees. But Ruth spent one year as a first-base coach with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1938, according to Atlas Obscura. Following his retirement in 1934, Ruth had been angling unsuccessfully for a job as manager or coach with the Yankees, and when the opportunity to coach at Ebbets Field presented itself, Ruth eagerly accepted. Unfortunately, Ruth constantly got into quarrels with the team’s star shortstop, Leo Durocher, and the two came to blows in the clubhouse in October. The team sided with Durocher, who became player-manager the next year, Atlas Obscura reported. Ruth’s Dodger uniform is being auctioned by Culver City, California-based Julien’s Auctions and is estimated to be worth between $200,000 and $400,000. 

SOME ELECTION WORKERS ARE DRIVEN IN BLACK CARS

CITYWIDE —Some Board of Election workers are chauffeured around town in black cars to the tune of $9 million in public funds, according to the New York Post. More than 25 of the pricey cars were parked outside the Brooklyn BOE building on Adams Street last week, while another 20 were parked at the BOE’s Queens site. Several drivers were spotted by the Post napping in their cars or watching TV on their phones before they were called on to drive. The average election inspector who works behind a desk, of course, does not get a limo. 

BAY RIDGE DEVELOPMENT TO REPLACE PARKING LOT

BAY RIDGE — Permits have been filed for a five-story mixeduse building at 302 81st St. in Bay Ridge, according to New York YIMBY. The lot, which now houses a parking facility and is on the corner of 81st Street and Third Avenue, is four blocks south of the R train’s 77th Street subway station. The building will have 32 apartments, most likely rentals, and some ground-floor commercial space. Meridian Properties is listed as the owner, and S. Wieder Architect is listed as the architect of record. The site is surrounded by small two- and three-story buildings. 

TREYGER PRAISES ED DEPT. FOR LIFTING HIRING FREEZE

BENSONHURST — City Councilmember Mark Treyger (D-Coney Island-Bensonhurst-Bath Beach) applauded the Department of Education’s recent decision to lift the hiring freeze on guidance counselors in the city’s public schools. “As a former teacher in our city’s schools, I’ve been an adamant advocate for social and emotional support in schools for our students. I’m thrilled that the Department of Education has heeded my call to lift the hiring freeze on guidance counselors.” Currently, there are more than 200 schools that do not have a fulltime guidance counselor. Counselors serve multiple roles in the schools, often helping students choose a college. 

CHARTER SCHOOL DOESN’T FOLLOW THROUGH WITH FUNDS

BROWNSVILLE — A charter school in Brownsville promised to enroll four students in a special business skills program at Google’s offices in Manhattan, but failed to come through with the funding, according to the New York Post. “Honestly, I thought it wasn’t true,” Adeyinka Adedewe, a 16-year-old senior at Achievement First East Brooklyn, told the Post. He added that he was shocked when he was told the school could no longer pay the $2,500 tuition. Adedewe and the three others were accepted into the Whatever It Takes program, which works with Google and teaches leadership and business skills. 

NEW BAKERY SHALL NOT LIVE BY BREAD ALONE

CROWN HEIGHTS — The James Beard award-nominated bakery Bien Cuit is planning to open a Crown Heights location this weekend. The ovens are going in at 741 Franklin Ave. and the awning is going up, according to New York Eater. Chef-owner Zachary Golpher and partner Kate Wheatcroft opened Bien Cuit’s original Boerum Hill location in 2011. “Bien Cuit’s miche bread, made from a blend of rye and wheat flours fermented for 68 hours, is something of a calling card,” New York Eater said. Seasonal pies for Thanksgiving, like miso caramel pumpkin pie and smoked chocolate custard pie, will also be available at the new location. 

VEGAN CAFÉ CLOSES ON MANHATTAN AVE.

GREENPOINT — A vegan café with a feline motif, Brooklyn Whiskers, has now closed its location at 1007 Manhattan Ave. in Greenpoint, according to Greenpointers. “We finally conceded that this location is not the future of #brooklynwhiskers Greenpoint,” an online announcement stated. The café also

Long-time minor leaguer Cole Bardreau accepts congratulations from the Islanders’ bench Tuesday night after scoring his first career goal on a penalty shot to put New York in front to stay. AP photo by Mary Altaffer has a flagship location at 1037 Broadway in Bushwick and its original space at 760 Dodworth St., which is currently closed but could reopen “as soon as this week,” according to an Instagram post from Brooklyn Whiskers. 

PLANT SHOP MOVES WITHIN GREENPOINT

GREENPOINT — On its second anniversary, the plant shop Soft Opening at 570 Manhattan Ave. has moved to a new location at 197 Nassau Ave., which coincidentally was its original location. The store is also planning to open an online store. Those who wish to shop at the Nassau Avenue location can still do so by appointment, at least in the near future, according to Greenpointers. Soft Opening’s owner Kristin McLaughlin also owns an interior plant design service, Plant You Up. 

SALES OF APT. BUILDINGS DOWN IN BROOKLYN

BOROUGHWIDE — Sales of apartment buildings have slowed, and unit volume of buildings sold has fallen 74 percent, in Brooklyn compared to a year earlier, according to Brownstoner. The real estate website blames the Tenant Protection Act, which “essentially [rolled] back vacancy decontrol passed in the early ’90s. … Landlords have said that removing incentives to redevelop buildings will cause rental housing to deteriorate.” In Brooklyn, the value of sales in the first nine months of 2018 was $2.76 billion, versus $1.51 billion in the first nine months of this year, said Brownstoner. However, resale prices of multi-family buildings in Brooklyn have remained stable. This may be a good sign, Brownstoner says, because “Fewer apartment buildings changing hands … could potentially increase housing security for Brooklyn renters in large buildings and help make Brooklyn neighborhoods more stable in general.” 

MAN ACCUSED OF STABBING COUSIN PLEADS SELF-DEFENSE

FLATBUSH — A Brooklyn man accused of stabbing his cousin to death in their Ocean Avenue apartment was acting in self-defense, his lawyer said at arraignment. Norberto Lozada was “justified” and “defending himself” when he stabbed Ramon Marrero, defense attorney Mark Muccigrosso said, according to the Daily News. Lozada surrendered to police several hours after the stabbing, the News said. Meanwhile, prosecutors say a witness was watching as Lozada got on top of his cousin and repeatedly plunged the knife down. Judge Chang Young Li ordered Lozada held without bail, the News reported. 

HASIDIC JEWS ATTACKED IN STRING OF BOROUGH PARK ASSAULTS

BOROUGH PARK — Several Hasidic Jewish men and boys were attacked in a string of assaults in Borough Park on Friday night, the beginning of the Jewish Sabbath, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Surveillance camera videos revealed

that in three of the attacks, several men jumped out of the same car to chase the Hasidim. In one incident, the passengers punched a Hasidic man after their vehicle pinned him against a parked car. The NYPD reported 311 total hate crimes against Jews from the beginning of this year through September, as opposed to 250 during the same period in 2018, the JTA reported. 

NEW PIEROGI SHOP COMES TO GREENPOINT

GREENPOINT — While many young creatives who don’t have roots in the neighborhood, or often in the city, have been moving to Greenpoint during the past 20 years, Radek Kucharski and his wife, Alexandra Siwiec, want to maintain the area’s Polish and Slavic cultural heritage. They have opened a new pierogi restaurant called Pierozek at 592 Manhattan Ave., according to The New York Times. They are being helped by pierogi makers Marzena Gesiarz and Zofia Kusmierska, who have roots in Czestochowa and own their own small restaurants in Greenpoint. The new restaurant’s pierogi are filled with potato and cheese; spinach, mushrooms and sauerkraut; or pork. Borscht with dumpling and sweet pierogis are also on the menu, the Times reported. 

PETER LUGER SUPPORTERS SHOW THEIR SUPPORT

Peter Luger fans, not dissuaded by last week’s ultra-critical review in The New York Times, have been showing up en masse at the famed Williamsburg steakhouse, New York Eater reported. A retired NYPD cop told the Daily Mail on Wednesday, “This place is great,” and another patron said, “It’s just one guy’s opinion and what does he know anyway?” New York chefs and some other critics are also coming to the restaurant’s defense.

Everyone in Brooklyn seems to be ooh-ing and aah-ing over the new Wegmans at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, but Alyse Whitney of New York magazine’s Grub Street has a complaint: unlike at other Wegmans stores, the deli sandwiches there are pre-made. “This Wegmans does not have a Sub Shop, and, as a result, it does not have a reason to exist,” she said. “If you think this sounds melodramatic, you have probably never had the pleasure of eating a Wegmans Assorted (turkey, roast beef, and ham) on everything-spiced bread with one hand during a five-hour driving trip. You have probably never burned the roof of your mouth on a Buffalo chicken-tender sub that manages to be somehow soft, crisp, and crunchy, all at once.” A customer service representative, however, told her that the Sub Shop is “coming soon.” Until then, she’ll have to be content with Subway.

Trapp Family appears in Academy concert BROOKLYN DAILY EAGLE • NOV. 7, 1939 By Miles Kastendieck

Some of the realization of the pleasure that the Trapp Family Choir had singing together for their own amusement before they took to the road in a professional way was imparted to an audience at the Academy of Music last night. It was as much of a pleasure to hear them. Eight performers in all, the mother with five daughters and two sons, under the direction of Franz Wasner, they illustrated perfectly a glorification of the amateur spirit expressing itself through music within a family group. Their program was almost a miniature course in early musical history. The first group presented some of the music of the Western Church in the inclusion of Catholic sacred music by Alchinger

and Palestrina and of Protestant sacred music by Praetorius and Bach. A secular group introduced music of the German, English and Italian schools. Then came the unusual feature of their program, the performance of early instrumental music with the aid of a choir of recorders (early wind instruments), a gamba (like a cello), and a spinet. The 17th century composers Muffat, Telemann and Fischer were represented by suites and trio sonatas. Two groups of folk songs, one of them Austrian, completed the list. One of the redeeming features of the concert was the fact that it was not quaint. So often when this older music is revived, the atmosphere is definitely set in the rosy glow of the past. This family 6INB • INBROOKLYN — A Special Section of Brooklyn Daily Eagle/Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • November 7– November 13, 2019 was too much alive to make these works other than living music. As a consequence, the program was all the more delightful. The entire family sings well, but there were some works that suited their voices more harmoniously than others. Among these were Lasso’s madrigal “Landsknechstandchen,” the German folk song “In Einem Kuhlen Grunde,” and all the Austrian folk songs, the Praetorius and the Bach, in an evening of consistently good singing. The phenomenon of the instrumental playing was as unusual as the Trapp Family itself so that their concert contained a unique element. If family circles of the Renaissance period were as expert as this group, then home life for them had its joyous moments. Such were the impressions left by a performance of this musical family which thus presents its unpremeditated art. Besides being well received, they were called upon repeatedly The Trapp family singers are shown at rehearsal in New York, Dec. 15, 1944 for a Christmas Eve broadcast. AP Photo for encores.

Theatre for Kids and Families Opens in Tri-State Park Slope JAG-ONE Physical Therapy Expands Throughout Area By John Alexander INBROOKLYN

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 refl ect their of mission Photos courtesy JAG-ONE 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

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

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.

Locals join 50,000 runners from more than 125 countries in 49th annual TCS NYC Marathon By Jaime DeJesus INBrooklyn

Running towards victory. The 49th annual TCS New York City Marathon once again saw more than 50,000 people from more than 125 countries participate in the race on Sunday, Nov. 3. The 26.2-mile course ran through all five of the city’s boroughs, and Bay Ridge had a significant presence as locals participated in the race as well as served as volunteers and supporters. Ridge Runners, a group of local runners that has been around for five years, had more than 25 members run the marathon. “This was my 10th New York City Marathon, and first running with the Ridge Runners,” said participant Winston Lee, a Dyker Heights resident. “Having a local group to run with and cheer you on added a new component to an already special day. It always feels good to get the support of locals, but when you have a large group that know your name and you have shared training with, it adds a little extra. It also makes it hard to follow the advice that everyone gives, ‘start out slow.’” “I am part of Ridge Runners and it felt amazing finishing,” added Caroline Boursereau. “I was with one of my running friends from Ridge Runners, and we ran together the entire way, pushed each other and finished strong together. It was long and hard but so worth it. It was the best experience of my life.” She added that the overwhelming support added to the experience. “My mom came from France to do it with

me, too, and I had my family cheering me on in Bay Ridge and also the Ridge Runners cheering,” Boursereau added. “Bay Ridge was one of the most exciting neighborhoods. I live in Bay Ridge, so seeing everyone there was amazing!” Area runner Shana Wernow couldn’t participate due to a hip injury while training but wanted to be a part of the day and volunteered. “My social life is very closely tied to running and I knew that I was going to be missing out on a lot by having to sit out this race,” she said. “I immediately signed up to volunteer at the start. It was a way that I could still experience the excitement of the start village and be there to support those that were able to carry out their marathon dreams this year.” She went above and beyond to support her friends. “While everyone was still sleeping, I made my way to Fort Wadsworth at 4 a.m. and did my best to support my fellow runners. I also took the opportunity to see what others were doing to keep themselves comfortable while waiting for their start, so I can be well prepared for my turn next year. Because of the way the start village is set up, I was only able to see three of my fellow Ridge Runners before they started, but I gave each of them a big hug and wished them luck.” More generally, the elite runners had an exciting race. On the men’s side, 26-year-old Geoffrey Kamworor won his second event title, clocking in at 2:08:13. This is his second New York City Marathon runners making their way through Bay Ridge. Marathon win in three years. The Kenya native has participated in the marathon four times and has at least made the podium in all of them. “From the start of the race, I was feeling okay,” he said following the win. “I was comfortable. I prepared very well to run this marathon. Throughout the last few meters, the pace was somewhat high, and it wasn’t a problem for me. That’s when I decided to pull away.” On the women’s side, Joyciline Jepkosgei took first place in just her first attempt at the TCS New York City Marathon, and made history. She recorded the second-fastest time ever in the women’s open’s division in New York City Marathon history, finishing in 2:22:38. Her time was the fastest ever by a woman making her debut at the TCS New York City Marathon. “My strategy I had planned was to finish the race strong,” Jepkosgei said. “But in the last kilometers, I saw that I was approaching the finish line and I was capable of winning.” Switzerland’s Manuela Schär won her third consecutive title in the wheelchair division.

The Brooklyn Eagle, Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator hosted a well-attended senior living health and financial expo on Friday, Nov. 1 in the grand ballroom of the Dyker Beach Golf Club, 1030 86th Street. There was food, fun and freebies for those attending, along with informative exhibit tables by hospitals, realtors, law firms, local businesses, therapists and senior care specialists. In all, there were over 25 exhibitors at the expo offering information packets, product demonstrations and all kinds of free promotional items. There were raffles, refreshments and prizes galore. The keynote speakers were NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island’s Dr. Mark Kindschuh, chairperson of emergency medicine, and Renata Landskind and Terence Ricaforte of Landskind & Ricaforte Law Group. Also speaking at the expo were Chip Walker, supervising pharmacist and G.M. at Columbia Care and Steven Williams, community outreach trainer at Accessible Dispatch. Kindschuh, a board-certified physician who lives in Bay Ridge, spoke first. He has served as chairperson of the Department of Emergency

Medicine at NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island since 2016. Kindschuh played a vital role in the transformation of the hospital’s emergency department and oversees its services to the South Brooklyn community. “Let’s start with the facts,” said Kindschuh. “You can’t really argue with the facts. If you are 65 years or older, you have about a 50 percent chance in a year of ending up in the emergency department. The Baby Boomers have gotten older and we’re still here.” He attributed the majority of visits by seniors to such things as falls, taking the wrong medication, poor eyesight and safety issues in the home. Landskind and Ricaforte oversee a full-service law firm providing estate-planning services to the pre and post-retirement community. They said they were determined to keep their law practice small so that they are able to offer personalized services to their clients that larger law firms can’t provide. Continued on page 6

The expo featured a question-andanswer session with the audience.

Steven Williams, community outreach training coordinator for the Accessible Dispatch Program, talks to the audience. Continued from page 2 “The biggest concern people have as they age is the cost of aging and the risks that go along with it,” said Ricaforte. “Not a lot of people know about it so these expos are tremendous in spreading the knowledge that people need to understand all their options for themselves and their families. That’s why it’s so important to get the word out. All these vendors here can help all of us as we age,” added Ricaforte. Walker discussed the benefits of medical marijuana. “Columbia Care is a medical marijuana dispensary,” he explained. “It is a legitimate option for your healthcare. What we do for every patient who comes in is talk to you about your medications and past medical history so that we can understand what’s going on with all the symptoms you’re looking to treat.” He further explained, “If you have aches and pains and are taking over-the-counter medications, this is another option to replace some of those medications or add to them to help ease your aches and pains.” Williams was the last to speak. He explained that his company provides wheelchair accessible taxis throughout the five boroughs of New York City. He said that he has worked in the healthcare industry for six years and his goal is to see New York City become a more accessible city. “Everyone is eligible for this program and you don’t have to apply or enroll,” explained Williams. “These are taxis that are larger than a regular taxi and the great thing about the program is that you pay the same fare as a regular taxi cab. You get more for the money with someone trained to assist you and a larger vehicle for easier access. You don’t have to be in a wheelchair to use the program,” he added. A number of vendors had participated in earlier expos. “It’s good to be back at the senior fair,” said Louis Peters of United Healthcare - AMP Insurance Brokerage, 7709 Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge. “This is a wonderful program where we can see all the vendors. We represent many, many insurance companies and today we’re thrilled to have the chance to talk to some seniors because this is their insurance election period between Oct. 15 and Dec. 7.” Michael Devigne, program manager for the Fifth Avenue BID, said that his group was “working on a number of programs to hopefully roll out more senior discounts and make seniors aware of what’s available to them in the BID. We’ll be doing window decals on the businesses and doing a mailing to let them know about all the great stores there and where they can get senior discounts.” Thomas Ryan, director of marketing at the Menorah Center for Rehabilitation, said that the health expo was an important means of reaching out to the community on a grassroots level and getting the seniors involved.

Continued from page 6 “It offers us an opportunity to let them know about all the options of health care, what we have and what we can do for them,” said Ryan. “The more education you provide, the more you know, the better services we can give.” Peter Killen, president of the Bay Ridge branch of AARP, said that the expo was invaluable in helping seniors. “The companies and organizations that are here are here for the seniors as we are at AARP,” said Killen. “The Home Reporter, Brooklyn Spectator and Brooklyn Eagle are essential to get all the news out that’s important to our citizens and definitely our seniors.” This was the first expo for Kerisha Wynter, supervisor at Humana at Home Senior Bridge Private Pay Services. “We are a private paid home care company that provides all the services you need to take care of your loved ones at home,” she told this paper. Franco Ullo of Jag-One Physical Therapy was also making his first appearance at the senior expo. “As we get older, there are ways to improve and maintain the quality of life by exercising mobility and we’re here to help that community thrive.” Stretched Out, a new business that offers therapeutic sports and wellness services at its location at 8121 Third Avenue in Bay

Ridge, announced that it was offering free exercise and therapy sessions to veterans and service members for one day. “On Veterans Day, we’re going to close down to our clients and we’re going to serve only the military,” John Brancato told this paper. Other exhibitors at the expo included Advanced Hearing Center, Ben Bay Realty/HSBC, FDNY, Caption Call, Investors Bank, Island Federal Credit Union, Island Shores, Northfield Bank, Norwegian Christian Home, NY Connects Dept. of Aging, OHEL, Prudential, Senior Bridge, Therapy-in-Motion and Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology. Russell Craig Targove was the master of ceremonies at the expo and there were also blood pressure screenings and other activities throughout each event. Guests were exceedingly pleased with the scope of the expo. “I’ve been to these before and I really find them very energizing and informative because all the groups that are here service our community in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights,” said attendee June Johnson. Veteran Bill Humienny also said it was important to come to an event like this because of the information offered. “You learn about all the different doctors, hospitals and lawyers,” said Humienny. “I’ve come to a couple of these and this is one of the best I’ve been to.”

TOBIN, Sister Pat — On Nov. 1. Sister of Charity. While born in Dorchester, Massachusetts, she spent all of her ministry years as a Sister of Charity in the New York area. She started out as a grade school teacher at Our Lady of the Cenacle in Richmond Hill. From there, she was assigned to Our Lady of Angels where there were 2,700 students enrolled in the school. One of her fourthgrade students remembers her looking down on him saying, “ I guess there are times you just have to fight,” and she gave him a hug he has never forgotten. She received a degree in special education and began teaching students in special ed at Resurrection-Ascension School in Rego Park commuting each day from Bay Ridge. In 1973, she began a new ministry at the Conklin Residence on 67th Street. Eventually, she and Sister Natalie Morris became fulltime managers at the Conklin Residence. For her, this was a 24-hour ministry and she loved doing it. She and Sister Natalie would take them on vacation each summer, whether it be to the Jersey Shore or the Pocono Mountains, and have a great time. She retired from the Conklin Residence in 2002 but kept in touch with and became an advocate for seniors in Bay Ridge. One said when she heard

She is the daughter of the late Joseph and the late Maria (Reale) Cosenza. Maria loved most to spend her time with family, friends and dancing. She will not be forgotten by her many friends and family. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing “Mary” loved her very much. Beloved wife of 68 years to the late Vincent Pizzillo. Loving mother of Madeline Mione (Mario) and Maria Byrnes (Robert). Cherished grandmother of Peter (Sommer), John (Danielle) and Christie. Treasured great grandmother of Christian.

LAVEGLIA, Daniel — “Danny,” as he was called, will always be remembered for his kindness, his quick sense of humor that always brought joy to those around him, and most importantly his loving devotion to his wife Ann. Ann was the love of Danny’s life and he always showed it. After 29 years of marriage, Ann suffered a stroke and during her eight-plus years as a patient in the Sheepshead Bay Nursing Home, Danny visited her every single day, caring for her during her times of need. Characteristic of Danny’s selfless devotion and unwavering positivity, he would lovingly tell his wife Ann while holding her hand during her time in the nursing home, “It’s okay. This is where we are at right now, and I’m here with you.” Danny was born on Dec. 17, 1931. He was raised, one of six children, on Dean Street in Brooklyn. Danny always mentioned his childhood fondly, having once said, “My mother and father were always doing everything they could for us. We did not have much in those days, but they were great times.” Danny returned to Dean Street for a nostalgic visit in May of 2018. In 1951, with the Korean War drafting many of the guys in his neighborhood, Danny enlisted

VALET PARKING PRIVATE ATTENDED PARKING LOT

www.mclaughlinandsons.com

in the United States Navy for a four-year hitch. From the beginning, Danny loved being at sea while working long days of tending to the upkeep of the ship. He sailed the Atlantic Ocean, and the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas, visiting the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cuba, Morocco, Tunisia, Italy, Spain and France, to name a few. Danny once told a fond story of riding horses during a beautiful sunny day while on leave in Cuba. He also spoke of spending memorable days in Naples, Italy (his family origin) and Monte Carlo on the French Riviera with his Navy pals. After his time in the Navy, Danny returned home to Brooklyn and found work as a Linotype worker for a printing company. Around the age of 50, Danny and Ann were married in 1981. Around that time, Danny went to work for the Highway Department of the City of New York. Danny was initially hired as a laborer, later becoming an asphalt truck driver and was then eventually promoted to an office worker, and assisted in representing the city concerning road conditions. Danny was a good union man during his twenty-five years with the city. Danny was helpful to

anyone who needed his assistance. He was amazingly handy and would always eventually figure things out when doing home projects. Danny enjoyed camping with Ann and they would spend most weekends at a beautiful northern New Jersey campground or at the Jersey shore. Danny and Ann worked hard during their lives, but they certainly enjoyed themselves along the way! Danny faced many difficult health problems during the past few years. Doctors said that his heart was weak, but in truth his heart was filled with love, kindness and strength. Danny’s favorite sport was boxing, which is not surprising because Danny had the heart of a champion. Danny was a good guy to everyone, especially to his family. Danny truly admired and loved Theresa for all that she gave to him and Ann during his and Ann’s time of need. Danny will be dearly missed by his loving family of Theresa, Jerry Jr., and Christina Rosiello, and by Joe, Nina, Catherine, Emily, and Julie Balsamo. All arrangements handled by Marine Park Funeral Home. Mass of Christian Burial Resurrection R.C. Church. Burial Pinelawn Memorial Park, Farmingdale.

YOU CAN FIND THEM BY STROLLING DOWN COLONIAL ROAD By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Everybody’s in love with the Bronx step street where Joaquin Phoenix dances in “Joker.” Did you know Bay Ridge has two of them? One’s on 74th Street and the other’s on 76th Street. You can stroll down Colonial Road to find them — and do some dancing of your own without needing to elbow your way through all the visitors on the Joker’s Bronx stairs. Colonial Road stretches from the top of Bay Ridge to nearly the bottom of the neighborhood. When you walk down it, besides the iconic step streets, you’ll find a representative mix of southwest Brooklyn housing stock. There are big suburban-style homes with large lawns, semi-attached houses on deep lots, century-old limestone rowhouses and a handful of apartment buildings.

Hey Joker, Bay Ridge has two step streets you might like to dance down. They’re just off Colonial Road.

Colonial Road starts at the intersection of Wakeman Place.

From time to time, when you look south, you’ll glimpse the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, austere and beautiful. The streets people most frequently recommend for northsouth Bay Ridge walks are Shore Road, with its fine houses and glimpses of Upper New York Bay, and Narrows Avenue, where a landmarked mansion known as the Gingerbread House can be found. These are stellar choices for strolls. But Colonial Road deserves a lot of love as well. And if you walk there, you can detour into Owl’s Head Park. One good way to get to Colonial Road is by riding the NYC Ferry. Its landing dock on the 69th Street Pier (aka American Veterans Memorial Pier) is just a few blocks away from Colonial Road’s starting point at the intersection of Wakeman Place. Or take the R train to its Bay Ridge Avenue stop.

THANK YOU, ELIPHALET W. BLISS Owl’s Head Park is located on the corner of Colonial Road and Wakeman Place. The 24-acre green space has the kind of dramatic hilly terrain you find in just a few places in Brooklyn. We have industrialist Eliphalet W. Bliss, who lived from 1836 to 1903, to thank for the park. It was his estate. In his will, he stipulated it should be sold to the City of New York for a discounted price on the condition that it be turned into parkland. As history buffs know, E.W. Bliss Co. owned factories in what’s now DUMBO. They produced machinery for manufacturers who made tin and sheet-iron products ranging from bird cages to typewriters. Anyway. Owl’s Head Park has an impressive variety of stately old trees including pines, locusts, oaks, maples, corks, beeches and tulip poplars, the city Parks Department’s website says. On a hilltop, a clearing affords a view of the water and Staten Island’s shoreline.

The park stretches down Colonial Road to the intersection of 68th Street. This is a great corner. When you turn your head towards the harbor, you can see the backs of the houses on a picturesque, one-block-long street called Bliss Terrace. Also turn away from the harbor and walk a short way up 68th Street. There’s an elegant cul-de-sac lined with Tudorstyle rowhouses. It’s called Bay Cliff Terrace. Bay Ridge has numerous block-long streets. In 2018, I photographed all of them.

LOTS OF TUDOR ROWHOUSES Colonial Road is scenic and serene. Hardly any of the buildings have storefronts. If you need a cup of coffee to fuel your walk, Colonial Deli is at 125 Bay Ridge Ave. at the intersection of Colonial Road. If you need a quick nosh, Rocky’s & Nicky’s Pizzeria is on the opposite corner, at 6824 Colonial Road. So. Start strolling down Colonial Road again. At the corner of 70th Street, turn your head towards the harbor and you will see the entrance to another picturesque one-lock-long street of rowhouses with Tudor details. Its name is Louise Terrace. As you walk further, there are eye-catching things such as the beautiful Tudor details on the rowhouse at 7924 Colonial Road on the corner of Mackay Place. And at the corner of 72nd Street, a fine tree is still flowering this late in the year in the side yard of 7202 Colonial Road. Across the street, a lovely limestone home at 105 72nd St. has a side wall covered with gorgeous ivy.

THE JOKER WOULD LOVE THESE STEP STREETS IN BAY RIDGE

Eye on

REAL ESTATE

THE 74TH STREET STEP STREET I took a lot more photos than I’m showing you in this story. So it took me a while to get to the corner of 74th Street, which is where the block with one of Bay Ridge’s step streets is located. The block is to your left as you walk down Colonial Road. On either side of the street, there are flat-faced rowhouses with distinctive stone lintels above the windows and decorative stonework below the windows. Next to the front stoops, there are terraces surrounded by low walls. Generously sized front yards stand in front of the terraces. Some of the houses have retractable awnings. Some of the homeowners are flying American flags. The leaves are autumnal red on the tree in front of the Colonial Road corner house, whose address is 101 74th St. The best vantage point for looking at these lovely houses is half-way up the staircase. If you were taking a lunch break, you’d walk all the way up the stairs and head for Third Avenue. White beech trees that were nicknamed “the Twelve Apostles” were torn down to clear the site of the 74th Street staircase, an informative post on the news and culture blog Hey Ridge says. The staircase was constructed in the 1930s.

THE 76TH STREET STEP STREET I kept walking on Colonial Road. I was afraid it might rain and short-circuit my plan to take photos on every block.

You can see Upper New York Bay from this hill in Owl’s Head Park

THE KINGS COUNTY INEBRIATE ASYLUM Further along, you’ll notice the handsome stand-alone houses on 85th Street just east of the Colonial Road intersection. Then you’ll get to the intersection of 86th Street — which is of course the road that takes you to L&B Spumoni Gardens in Gravesend if you keep walking and walking. Down on the corner of 88th Street, there’s a big, gorgeous stucco house painted creamy yellow. Except it’s actually a duplex. The home right on the corner is 8723 Colonial Road. The other side of the property, which is painted a slightly different color and has shutters on its upstairs windows, is 8719 Colonial Road. At the next Colonial Road intersection, the flowers at 8824 Colonial Road are still blooming. Between 90th and 91st streets, tremendous trees tower over a wall that surrounds the grounds of Visitation Academy. The entrance to the school is on Ridge Boulevard. Did you know the property on which the academy was built was formerly the site of the Kings County Inebriate Asylum? There are apartment buildings and a short row of houses on Colonial Road’s final block, which is between 91st and 92nd Streets. After this trek, you’ll probably want a bite to eat. If you turn left onto 92nd Street and walk to Third Avenue, there are a zillion places for coffee, snacks and meals. Paneantico, a popular Italian cafe that makes excellent hero sandwiches, is right on the corner of 92nd and Third. When you need to go home, the 95th Street R-train station is on nearby Fourth Avenue.

This is Bay Cliff Terrace, whose entrance is on 68th Street near the intersection of Colonial Road Along the way, I noticed a pretty pair of enclosed porches at 7604 and 7606 Colonial Road. The entrance to the block with the 76th Street step street has two big, beautiful houses on either side of it. One of them is 7523 Colonial Road. The other is 7601 Colonial Road. Trees with lush foliage grow alongside this staircase. Your view of these fine houses is better on the lower steps than on the top ones. Construction of the 76th Street step street was completed by 1924, the Hey Ridge posting about the step streets says. The 76th Street step street is such a novelty, and so picturesque. I was tempted to sit for a couple hours and enjoy the tranquility, even though it did seem like it might rain.

THE GREEN MAN Instead, I headed back onto Colonial Road. I was rewarded with the sight of a dog walker marching past the eye-catching stucco house at 7801 Colonial Road. Sweet-faced pooches walked right beside him, the way they’re taught to do in obedience school. Two houses at the intersection of Colonial Road and 80th Street caught my eye. One of them is 7923 Colonial Road, with a stucco facade painted a delicate bluish hue and a fireplace made of stone. A retaining wall around the lawn is made of the same stone as the fireplace. To give you an idea of what houses are worth on Colonial Road, this one was sold for $1.98 million in 2018, city Finance Department records indicate.

The other eye-catching house on an 80th Street corner is 8001 Colonial Road. It is made of pale-hued stucco and looks like an Italian villa. A stone decoration over the front door depicts a man’s face with the beard made out of stylized leaves. Ropes of leaves and fruit hang from his ears. This decorative motif, which is a symbol of rebirth and nature’s self-renewal, is known as the Green Man. It can be found on house facades in numerous Brooklyn neighborhoods.

IN MEMORY OF JOSEPH JOHN HASSON III The corner of 81st Street has a lovely large home whose address is 8102 Colonial Road. The lawn is a small hill that rises several feet above the sidewalk. Another house at this intersection, 132 81st St., is so pretty. A block further away, on the corner of Colonial Road and 82nd Street, there’s a street co-naming sign that says “Joseph John Hasson III 9/11 Memorial Way.” According to the NYC Honorary Street Names database, it runs between this spot and Shore Road and 92nd Street, which is just past the end of Colonial Road. Hasson died in the terrorist attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center. At the time of his death, the 34-year-old Bay Ridge resident was an assistant vice president of sales at eSpeed, a subsidiary of financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald, a New York Times profile about him said.

Fort Hamilton Army Base salutes five local heroes for Veterans Day BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

I

t seemed like every elected official and community leader was present at this year’s annual Veterans Day observance at the Fort Hamilton Army Base in Bay Ridge. The much-anticipated ceremony that salutes veterans from all branches of the service took place on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at the Fort Hamilton Community Club. David Linder of the Fort Hamilton Army Base hosted the observance. Sgt. First Class Hope Harrell performed the national anthem and Chaplain Maj. Bruce Duty delivered the invocation. “Today we are celebrating veterans from wars that go back to World War I,” said Fort Hamilton Army Base commanding officer Col. Andrew Zieseniss. “We’re kicking off a busy few days here in New York City as we honor military veterans and we recognize the importance of the U.S. Army.” Zieseniss went on to

explain, “One hundred years ago in 1919, Americans first came together to recognize veterans of the Great War on November 11, Armistice Day. In 1947, Armistice Day was officially renamed Veterans Day in order to recognize all American military veterans. Since 1919, we stand shoulder to shoulder to pay tribute to all those who served and continue to serve our country under the most difficult circumstances.” Zieseniss introduced five local heroes who served in World War II and were sitting front and center at the ceremony: Harold Rosenthal who fought in the Philippines during the Pacific campaign; Harvey Lerner, who served in the Navy and provided critical support stateside during the war; Harold Radish, who fought in Europe when he was 18 years old and was a POW for four years; Jack Vanasco, who served with General Douglas MacArthur; and Albert Goldberg, who fought during the Battle of the Bulge as an infantryman and machine

gunner. The keynote speaker was Garrison Director William Barriage who leads the Logistics Readiness Center at Fort Hamilton. Barriage served over 37 years as a commissioned officer in the United States Army. The ceremony concluded with Zieseniss and Command Sgt. Major LaShan Hayes recognizing Barriage for his dedicated service to the military. Elected officials attending the ceremony included U.S. Rep. Max Rose; State Sen. Andrew Gounardes; City Councilmember Justin Brannan; Assemblymembers Peter Abbate, Mathylde Frontus and Nicole Malliotakis. Rose, himself a veteran who served as an active duty officer in Afghanistan from 2012-2013 and earned a Bronze Star, Purple Heart and Combat Infantry Badge called it a privilege to be at the observance. “Fort Hamilton holds a special place in mine and so many other veterans’ hearts. It was truly a privilege to join so many patriots

Brannan said that this year’s Veterans Day has special meaning. “Being among these heroes is incredibly humbling," said Brannan. We should really be honoring America’s veterans every day of the year but the least we can do is pause to express our profound gratitude for their sacrifices and contributions each year on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. It's up to us to make sure our veterans always get the respect, attention, recognition and care that

they need,” he added. Gounardes echoed Brannan’s sentiments. “Veterans Day is a time to reflect with profound gratitude on all that those who have served our country have done to protect us,” Gounardes told this paper. “Yet it is not just on Veterans Day but every day that we have to acknowledge this debt of gratitude owed to our veterans,” he added. “The ceremony was a fitting tribute to our local veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country,” Frontus told this paper. “I was glad to meet the vets personally and hear their stories.”

“It’s just a small part of what we can do. Veterans Day should be every day. We should always honor them,” said Abbate. “It is such an honor to be in the presence of all the World War II veterans who truly are the greatest generation who have selflessly given to our nation. And to be in the presence of five World War II veterans today is certainly a highlight for me, and of course we’re very grateful for all the veterans who served. It’s because of them that we have the freedoms, the liberties and the life that we live here in the United States of America,” added Malliotakis.
