Senate passes Verrazano Bridge toll discount plan for Brooklyn BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
all it the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge or the Verrazzano Narrows Bridge, either way the toll is way too high. And Brooklynites are being hit the hardest by having to cough up the $17 round trip fare. The State Senate has finally passed a bill that will offer some relief, especially for those Brooklyn residents who travel to Staten Island for work or have family living there. A reduced fare plan has been in effect for Staten Island residents who commute daily across the bridge to work in Manhattan or one of the boroughs. That same discount has never applied for Brooklyn residents who do the reverse commute. According to State Sen. Marty Golden, the legislation would provide Verrazano-Narrows Bridge toll relief to Kings County residents who utilize E-Z pass and who cross the bridge three or more times per month. “The residents of Brooklyn, and in particular Southern Brooklyn, realistically have only one way to enter Staten Island and/or parts of New Jersey for employment, visiting relatives, and use of vacation properties,”
Golden said. “Our families “As the sponsor of this bill in and businesses simply cannot the Assembly, I have been trying afford to shoulder the burdens to get toll relief passed for the forced on them by the tolls at the Verrazano Bridge,” Abbate told Verrazano Narrows Bridge any this paper. “As one of the pricilonger.” est tolls in the country, this is a Brooklyn residents with E-Z serious issue for the residents pass pay $11.52, a 32% savings of Southern Brooklyn as well from the $17.00 toll.

It’s now a three-way race for the Democratic nomination to fill the seat vacated by former Assemblymember Pamela Harris, who resigned from office in April after being slammed with an 11-count indictment on fraud and corruption charges in January. Chris McCreight, chief of staff to City Councilmember Justin Brannan, announced his candidacy for the post on Thursday, June 7. In seeking the nomination, he joins Coney Island activist Mathylde Frontus and Ethan Lustig-Elgrably, a former staffer for City Councilmember Mark Treyger. One Republican, Steve Saperstein, is also seeking to fill the empty seat in the 46th A.D., which encompasses portions of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Brighton Beach, Sea Gate and Coney Island. McCreight, the only Ridgeite in the race, said one of his main goals, should he be elected, would be to “make sure every neighborhood in the district, which is very diverse, gets the attention it deserves.” McCreight also touched on the issue of corruption — which has not only affected Albany but the district itself, with Harris pleading guilty just days after his announcement to four of 11 counts in the original indictment brought against her in January. —Helen Klein
NO-APPOINTMENT BULK PICK-UP TO RETURN TO RIDGE, DYKER In an effort to keep city streets looking more like sidewalks and less like furniture showrooms, large bulk collection will return solely to Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights on non-recycling days – no appointment needed, announced Councilmember Justin Brannan. According to the pol, starting this summer, a Department of Sanitation (DSNY) garbage truck will be assigned to the 'hoods on non-recycling days to pick up any and all bulk items, like bed frames and old couches, whether or not the resident has made an appointment. This change, Brannan said, is welcome, and means no more furniture sitting on the curb for weeks on end waiting to be picked up. The change comes less than a year after DSNY launched the bulk pick-up appointment program in the district. Residents should continue making appointments for bulk pick-up through July 2, when the new expanded pick-up program is expected to begin. In addition, Brannan said, DSNY will start collecting organics once a week on recycling days. —Meaghan McGoldrick

A LOOK BACK
With the return of John Travolta this week to Bensonhurst’s Lenny’s Pizza, it seemed a perfect time to look back on the debut of his iconic film, “Saturday Night Fever,” which opened in 1977. In this photo from the ebrooklyn media/file photo files of this newspaper, a crowd waits outside the Alpine Theater in Bay Ridge on a snowy evening, umbrellas open; parked across the street, a car that epitomized the era. The other feature screened at the Alpine that evening was “Telefon” with Charles Bronson. Compiled by Helen Klein
LETTERS CLASS WARFARE I just received the latest quarterly property tax bill on my three-family home in Bensonhurst. Yet another increase, this time for $61, or $244 per annum. My property taxes, and those of my neighbors, are now near the $10,000 SALT cap imposed by the GOP Tax Reform Bill. This time, the increase is the direct result of an arbitrary rise in the "assessed value" of my house even though the estimated market value decreased. There was no change in the property tax rate, the usual vehicle for increasing property taxes on small homeowners like me. Why, pray tell, would my assessed value increase if the estimated market value of my house declined? My bill provides no explanation. And so this unrelenting class warfare on the part of the city continues unabated. Dennis Middlebrooks

first class stamp going up by a penny from 49 cents to 50 cents later this year. Part of the problem is that Congress in 2006 mandated that the Post Office fully fund 75 years of retirement benefits for employees. This has contributed billions to the Post Office's long term debt. It is time for Congress to amend legislation and afford the Post Office ability to fund its retirement plan at a more reasonable level. There are other initiatives which could assist the Postal Service in avoiding frequent postage stamp increases. The Post Office should continue with more joint business ventures like Amazon in expanding Sunday delivery to generate badly needed revenues. This would assist in developing alternatives to raising the price of a first class stamps every few years. Why not consider going after other available untapped potential revenue streams? The US Postal Service could sell advertising space on the sides of mailboxes and vehicles. Sell off some valuable real estate and move to less expensive locations. Why not join banks and fast-food restaurants that sublet space at big box stores to open smaller post offices? Generate both revenue and customers by subletting excess capacity at underutilized post offices to other government agencies along with private sector businesses. License corporations to sponsor stamps for a fee. Have elected officials pay the real, full costs for their bulk rate mailings to constituents. Charge the full price for all junk mail. Future increases in the price of stamps should be directly tied to inflation. The Post Office should apply free-enterprise solutions to provide a more cost-effective product, reduce deficits and prevent more branches from closing, thus keeping its commitment to serve the public well.

Grimm’s criminal past big topic at first debate vs. Donovan BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
t was a verbal slugfest. The first debate between Republican U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan and his challenger, Michael Grimm, did not disappoint political observers who were hoping for fireworks. During a one-hour live debate on 77 WABC Radio on Monday, the two men sparred over everything from Grimm’s criminal record to Donovan’s efforts to save the Brooklyn Veterans Administration hospital to whether the incumbent sought to convince ebrooklyn media/Photos by Paula Katinas President Donald Trump to U.S. Rep.

“We kept services open. We will keep the ENT open,” Donovan said referring to the medical center’s ear, nose and throat clinic which is threatened with closure due to budget cuts. The recent case involving Pablo Villavicencio, the undocumented immigrant from Ecuador who was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents while delivering a pizza to the Fort Hamilton Army Base in Bay Ridge became a bone of contention between Donovan and Grimm when the conversation broadened to Sanctuary Cities and whether local governments should be protecting undocumented immigrants . “People are blaming ICE and military officers for enforcing the law. They did exactly what they were supposed to do. They did their jobs,” Donovan said. Grimm charged that Donovan supported granting amnesty to undocumented immigrants. Donovan denied it. Grimm also said Donovan opposed cutting federal funding to Sanctuary Cities. Donovan said he opposes the idea of harboring illegal immigrants but that a bill to cut funding to Sanctuary Cities went too far. It would have cut funding for the NYPD, he said. Grimm called Sanctuary Cities “a horrible” policy and said that it “puts our police officers at risk.” Grimm also claimed that Donovan pleaded with him not to run against him in primary. He claimed Donovan told him, “Give me two more years,” and that then he would retire from Congress and be eligible for a government pension. Donovan shook his head and denied Grimm’s contention. Grimm said that Donovan has not passed any substantive legislation during his time in Congress. Donovan described himself as the most productive freshman lawmaker in the House in terms of the number of bills passed. Cosby noted that Trump has endorsed Donovan in the race. “Dan Donovan has the entire establishment behind him. I have the people behind me. I’m fine with that,” Grimm said.

Child traffic fatalities are on track to reach a record high in the era of Vision Zero.
Speed cameras can protect our children from this danger.
Every day, children in Bay Ridge risk death and injury just crossing the street. That is why so many support commonsense bi-partisan legislation (S6046-C/A7798-C) that would increase the number of speed cameras near schools. Local organizations like Bay Ridge Advocates Keeping Everyone Safe (B.R.A.K.E.S) and Children United to Rein-in Breakneck Speeding (C.U.R.B.

Former Brooklyn Assemblymember Pamela Harris pleads guilty to four counts BY CLARISSA SOSIN
t wasn’t until she read her statement to the court that former South Brooklyn Assemblymember Pamela Harris began to cry. It started with a waver in her voice, her head bowed down over a piece of paper as she read her account of the crimes. Harris, 57, who represented portions of Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Brighton Beach, Sea Gate and Coney Island, pleaded guilty in federal court to four out of the original 11 counts on the indictment on Tuesday, June 12. She appeared in front of United States Magistrate Judge Robert Levy and admitted guilt to two counts of wire fraud, one count of making false statements to FEMA, and one count of witness tampering. Sniffing periodically as she read, she described how she falsified applications for discretionary funds from the New York City Council and then wired those funds to her personal bank account. She recounted how she

Former Assemblywoman Pamela Harris leaving Brooklyn Federal Court after a hearing earlier this year. lied about living with her twin sister on Staten Island after Hurricane Sandy to receive disaster money from FEMA. She paused part way through her statement, saying “pardon me” to the judge, before telling the court how she told her sister to lie to the FBI when she found out she was under investigation. According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Harris defrauded the New York City Council of $45,600 total and FEMA of approximately $25,000 between 2012 and 2017. She faces a maximum of 30 years in prison for making
false statements to FEMA, and a maximum of 20 years in prison for the wire fraud and witness tampering charges. Among the other agencies that Harris had been charged with defrauding are the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD), the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, the New York City Build it Back Program, and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York. Harris, a Democrat, succeeded former Assemblymember Alec
Brook-Krasny, winning a 2015 special election that was held after BrookKrasny, also a Democrat, stepped down to take a job in the private sector. The latter was indicted after stepping down in connection with a sting operation targeting three Brooklyn medical clinics that investigators allege were “pill mills” which illegally prescribed opioid painkillers while also fraudulently billing Medicare and Medicaid for millions of dollars’ worth of unnecessary medical tests, physical therapy and psychiatric services. In a statement given out after the hearing, Harris’s attorneys Joel Cohen and Jerry Goldfeder wrote that they hoped Judge Jack Weinstein, the judge assigned to sentencing, would be lenient in his sentencing. They emphasized that none of the charges were related to Harris’s time as an assemblymember and they wrote that she “admitted her guilt in an effort to move on with her life.” Harris is set to appear in court for her sentencing on Sept. 26 at 10:30 a.m. Additional reporting contributed by Helen Klein
NEIGHBORHOOD NEWSBEAT Lesbians Claim Uber Driver Booted Them After They Kissed MANHATTAN BRIDGE — Alex Iovine and her girlfriend, Emma Pichl, say that an Uber driver told them to leave his car after they kissed briefly while the cab was driving over the Manhattan Bridge. The two of them had finished eating lunch at Pig Beach, a Gowanus eatery, when they summoned an Uber to take them to Manhattan, NBC News reported. After the two kissed, “The driver pulled suddenly pulled over and said, `Get out of my car, you’re not allowed to do that,’” Iovine told NBC News. A cellphone video of the incident that Iovine posted on her Facebook site shows the driver as a dark-haired white or Hispanic man with a moustache wearing dark glasses and a white T-shirt. Uber said the company “does not tolerate any form of discrimination, and we have reached out to the rider regarding her experience,” according to NBC News.
Shark Exhibit Opens at NY Aquarium — Finally CONEY ISLAND — The long-awaited shark exhibit at the New York Aquarium opens on June 30. “Ocean Wonders: Sharks!” was announced in 2012, but Superstorm Sandy delayed construction of the 57-000-square-foot exhibit until 2014. There will be a total of 115 species of sharks on display in the main 500,000-gallon tank, including sand tiger sharks, cownose rays, loggerhead sea turtles and thousands of
types of fish. Workers were putting the final touches on the Shimmer Wall on Wednesday, according to Brownstoner. The wall is made out of 33,000 aluminum rectangles, hanging from tension cables and recreates a sense of waves and movement across the facade as the wind shifts the tiles. The aquarium also recently debuted its own restaurant, The Oceanside Grill, which is open for business along the boardwalk.
Close Fort Hamilton Army Base, Says Blog FORT HAMILTON — Every few years, the U.S. military looks at a list of facilities that could be closed, and the Bay Ridge community and its political allies raise a hue and cry to make sure Fort Hamilton isn’t on that list. However, the local blog Hey Ridge, in a move that is sure to be unpopular in the neighborhood, says “The Army base should close” and take its military personnel with it. The idea goes back as far as 1906, when the West End Board of Trade of Brooklyn wanted to turn it into a park. However, then-Secretary of War William Howard Taft put a damper on the idea, saying Fort Hamilton was necessary for the defense of New York Harbor. In 1926, it was suggested as a location for what is now called Brooklyn College, but eventually the current site at Nostrand and Flatbush avenues was chosen. The Hey Ridge writer said military police who are assigned to live on the base are “re-creating the city in the image of suburban America: calling ICE on the pizza delivery guy, eating fast food from chain restaurants and driving everywhere.”

Councilmember Announces Single-Sex Beach Days for Observant Jews, Muslims MANHATTAN BEACH — Councilmember Chaim Deutsch (D-Manhattan Beach-Sheepshead Bay) is sponsoring sex-segregated beach days at a beach behind Kingsborough Community College to allow his Orthodox Jewish and Muslim constituents the opportunity to enjoy the seashore. “A lot of people are disenfranchised for religious reasons,” Deutsch told the Daily News. “They don’t use the beach because they don’t go mixed swimming.” Deutsch, himself an observant Jew, plans to rent the beach space from the community college. Males will be able to go on June 29, while June 27 is reserved for females. For reasons of modesty, Orthodox Jews and Muslims do not swim with members of the opposite sex. Similar single-sex hours at a public swimming pool in Williamsburg were a matter of legal contention recently, but the matter was resolved in favor of the Orthodox Jewish community.
More Details Unveiled About Development at LICH Site COBBLE HILL — The developer of River Park, the real estate development that will rise on the former Long Island College Hospital campus, unveiled a new website Monday that includes several more renderings and details about the development. The project, according to Curbed, is composed of five elements: the historic Polhemus Building, which is being converted into condos; a group of townhouses next to the building; 1
River Park, a 15-story condo building; 2 River Park, the tallest building, which will rise 475 feet; and 5 River Park, another 150-story tower. The buildings will all include high-end amenities, such as balconies as large as 300 square feet (at 1 River Park), a “sky park” (at 2 River Park) and a pool (at 5 River Park). One River Park, on the corner of Hicks Street and Atlantic Avenue, will be closest to the waterfront, Curbed reported.
Judge Halts Deportation Of Pizza Delivery Man BAY RIDGE — A Manhattan federal judge has temporarily stopped the deportation of a pizza delivery man who was arrested at Fort Hamilton, at least until another court hearing on July 20. Judge Alison J. Nathan of the 1st Judicial Department ruled in favor of Pablo Villavicencio Calderon, who was delivering pizza from a Queens pizzeria to the Brooklyn army base when he was turned over to Immigration
and Customs Enforcement by a military police officer, according to The New York Times. After authorities ran a background check on Villavicencio, a native of Ecuador, it turned out that he had an open order of removal since 2010. The judge said federal officials must file court documents to explain why a temporary preliminary injunction should not be issued in favor of Villavicencio, the Times reported.
Jane’s Motorcycles in Williamsburg Is Not Your Typical Biker Shop WILLIAMSBURG — Only in Williamsburg would a store sell motorcycles, coffee and clothing all in one. Alex DiMattio and Adam Kallen run Jane’s Motorcycles, located at 396 Wythe Ave., which is possibly the only shop of its kind in the world. Their concept was frowned upon by many of their business consultants, but the duo went ahead with their dream nonetheless and their customers appreciate it. “They make great coffee, they’re great guys, it’s a beautiful shop, I love all the motorcycles, what’s there not to love — it’s all the great things in life,” customer Sam Slaughter told ABC7. Their motorcycles are on display in the store and are custom-made only 20 blocks away. Their clothing, also made in Brooklyn, is designed for riders who want a different look from the stereotypical biker and can be worn around the city any day.

Brooklyn Family Court Holds Annual Teen Day Rosie Williams, an advocate for youth with “You Gotta Believe!,” a program that is part of the Nobody Ages Out Youth Movement, speaks on the panel. Panel moderator Jim St. Germain, right, listens to her at right.
By Paul Frangipane INBrooklyn
The Kings County Family Court hosted its annual Teen Day event on Thursday for Brooklyn kids in the foster care system to network and interact with various agencies to prepare for their future. Tables set up from some 30 agencies allowed kids heading into adulthood to learn about college prospects, health insurance, preparing for job interviews and other information. With youth movements currently taking the country by storm, this year’s theme was “Using Your Voice as a Bridge to Your Future.” “Our hope was that by picking this theme today … we would help the teens catch even a glimpse of trying to see what it means to use your voice to really
Dozens of kids from the foster care system watch as panelists discuss how kids can achieve what they want in life and how adults can help them. Brooklyn Eagle photos by Paul Frangipane build your own future,” said Judge Dean Kusakabe, co-chairman for the Teen Day Committee.
After a dance performance in front of dozens of teens by the Flex Program, an arts education initiative aimed at helping young people in difficult situations, three panelists engaged in a discussion about how kids can achieve their goals and how adults in the system can help them. Drayvon Washington, who had just performed with the Flex Program, said adults need to level with the kids. “You have to show them eye-toeye level. I’m gonna get off my high horse and get down and dirty,” Washington said. “You have to meet them all the way.” Kyle Layne, a residential counselor at St. Anne Institute in Albany, who aged out of the foster care system at 21, said education and books got him through by giving him an opportunity to block out reality.
But an advocate in the “You Gotta Believe!” program as part of the Nobody Ages Out Youth Movement Rosie Williams offered advice for kids who struggle with school. “You have to meet the kids where they’re at, if they’re not learning in the classroom, let’s ask them a question of how you learn,” Williams said. “You have to believe in these kids for them to believe in themselves.” As for the judges and other courthouse employees in the system, Williams said they need to allow kids to tell their stories in court. “The only way the system is going to change is through the young people that’s going through the system,” Williams told the teens. “So speak up and don’t be afraid to speak up about your story because it’s powerful.”
Several kids in the crowd held up their phones to record the Teen Day dance performance. 16INB •• INBROOKLYN — A—Special Section of Brooklyn Daily Eagle/Heights Press/Home Reporter/Brooklyn Spectator/Brooklyn Record/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of June 15-21, 2018 2INB INBROOKLYN A Special Section of Brooklyn Eagle/Heights Press/Brooklyn Record/Ho/Greenpoint Gazette • Week of June 14-20, 2018

The Art Room in Bay Ridge showcases children’s artistic creations BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
id you ever wonder what a child would do when given the opportunity to create art inspired by a contemporary artist? Well, the Art Room, located at 8710 Third Ave. in Bay Ridge, provided children of all ages with the opportunity to learn about Japanese art and create their own personal masterpieces. On Sunday, June 3, the Art Room presented a colorful art exhibit of polka dot mirror art inspired by Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese contemporary artist who has been called the “Queen of Polka Dots.” Kusama’s work is based in conceptual art and contains elements of minimalism, surrealism, pop art, and abstract expressionism. The children were encouraged to create their own abstract art using a mirror as their canvas and incorporating patterns with bright and bold colors. The Art Room is run by a dedicated staff of teachers including founder Leigh Holliday Brannan and her mother-in-law Mary Immaculata Brannan. Students ages three to 12 attend classes to learn about art. Leigh was born and raised in Washington, D.C. After high school, she moved to the Midwest to study psychology, but decided her first love was art and moved back to the nation’s capital to attend the Corcoran College of Art and Design. After graduating in 1996, she founded a fine art school for children near Georgetown, where she remained for seven years. In 2003, Leigh moved to New York City where she worked for a time on Wall Street, before again realizing that art was her true passion. In 2010, she founded the Art Room NYC, and has been educating and inspiring children to create art ever since. She is married to City Councilmember Justin Brannan. Mary has been a teacher at Holy Angels Catholic Academy in Bay Ridge for 30 years. She began her career as a kindergarten teacher in 1984, and was responsible for founding the school’s Pre-K program in 1990. “We spent a couple of weeks studying Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who’s called the “Polka Dot Princess,” Mary said. “We presented the idea that the kids would each do a sketch

Leigh pointed out the range of expression from the youngest kids who did little dot designs to the older
children who created intricate works of art. “We picked Yayoi Kusama as a theme because we wanted the kids to feel the cohesion of work that was going to go up and we think it’s really come together beautifully,” Leigh said. “It also shows how unique everyone is when you view it as a body of work.”
P.S. 112 students celebrated Da Vinci’s birthday BY ARIAMA LONG EDITORIAL@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM
ravissimo! P.S. 112 in Bensonhurst, which in 2015 became the first in the city to have a dual language English-Italian program, celebrated Italian culture as students from the program mounted an art display at the Italian Consulate to mark iconic artist and designer Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday on April 15. The dual language program had previously caught the attention of the consulate, representatives of which, during a visit to the school, had seen that students in classes from pre-kindergarten through first grade were recreating some of Da Vinci’s most notable achievements. The art pieces included model helicopters, as well as tissue paper replicas and mosaics of the Mona Lisa. All of the dual language classes worked together to construct a robot using Da Vinci’s sketches of a mechanical knight from 1495 as a guide. “It was wonderful to have the students see their work displayed, and the Italian Consul General and education director came out to talk to the students while we were there,” noted P.S. 112 Principal Louise Alfano. According to the 2009-2013 American Community Survey, the
percentage of Italian-speaking homes in Bensonhurst was among the highest among New York City neighborhoods. According to the 2010 Census, about 80 percent of households in the surrounding Dyker Heights and New Utrecht areas speak a language other than English at home. Since 2015, the unique, federally-funded language program has taught pre-K through first-graders bilingual fluency. Students in the program are also developing an appreciation for Italian culture. Class time is split — half is taught in Italian and the other half is taught in English. The program is “designed
to develop students’ skills in listening, speaking, reading and writing in both English and Italian” in native and non-native children, according to the school’s website. Even subjects in the program such as math, social studies and science are instructed in English with extension activities in Italian in order to build number sense, reasoning and practice in both languages. Currently, the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes are learning Italian songs in preparation for their “step-up” graduation ceremonies on June 19 and June 20. P.S. 112 is located at 7115 15th Avenue.

St. Ephrem School Fights Cancer with Annual Talent Show BY ROSALEEN DEGREGORIO
n the evening of Friday, May 11, the St. Ephrem community, comprised of students, parents and teachers, gathered in Msgr. Peter Kain Hall for an important cause – Kidney Cancer Awareness. They came together for the seventh annual “Night for Hope,” in which 13 performances were put on by students in grades three through eight. The night was an opportunity for students to display their talents through dance and song to their fellow classmates and families. The students’ acts were comprised of solo, duet and group musical numbers. Many of the St. Ephrem teachers also put on an act together, singing about different jobs they’d have had if they weren’t teachers today – including a baker, an archer and a boxer. This
‘teacher-only’ skit was originally created a few years ago by parish priest Father Jim Krishe, and has been a popular skit since. The St. Ephrem community realizes the importance of cancer awareness and strives to donate money to either hospitals to help find a cure or to St. Ephrem families as a means to help pay for some of the medical costs that are endured. More than $6,000 was raised this year through ticket sales, t-shirt sales, basket raffles and a 50/50 raffle.

Reaching New Heights: Dr. Catherine “Cady” Coleman Delivered Address at City Tech’s June 4 Commencement
ity Tech (New York City College of Technology) marked the annual rite of passage for graduating students at its 78th Commencement Exercises on Monday, June 4, at the Barclays Center, 620 Atlantic Avenue. President Russell Hotzler conferred degrees on some 3,200 graduates this year, making this the largest graduating class in City Tech history. A small majority of these, about 1,640, received bachelor’s degrees, marking the progress of City Tech as a senior college. Delivering the commencement address was Dr. Catherine “Cady” Coleman, a recently retired NASA astronaut with a fascinating career, including five months at the International Space Station. The top two students in the 2018 graduating class are Valedictorian Serifat Adebola, who earned a baccalaureate degree in biomedical informatics, and Salutatorian Sandra Torres, who earned a baccalaureate in construction management. When Adebola arrived in Brooklyn from her native country, Nigeria,

One short month later, she was attending college classes at City Tech, enrolled in a degree program in biomedical informatics. “Where will this take me?” she wondered.

Sandra Torres, Salutatorian. Adebola’s intellectual skills and especially her determination have taken her to a stellar academic record. She was graduated with a 3.93 grade point average and has done research on topics as diverse as cell models based on RNA experimental data and evolutionary changes in rattlesnakes. She has come to see the strong relationship between biomedical research and the delivery of healthcare to patients. As
she puts it, “Benchside [research and analysis] has much to offer bedside [where healthcare is delivered].” Until 2011, Torres — an immigrant, born in Colombia, who came to the U.S. in 1977 — was a telecommunications field technician for Verizon. A serious injury ended that career, and left her with severe, chronic pain in her back and her right knee. A very difficult three years followed, as she dealt with depression and with how to support her family. In her words, “I struggled for three years, trying every antidepressant on the market. Finally, my psychiatrist suggested I try going back to school.” It is an approach he uses with people dealing with chronic physical pain. She agreed, with some trepidation, fearing the consequences if she failed. She really did not need to fear those consequences. On June 4, Torres was graduated from City Tech with a 3.98 grade point average. She has received scholarships from Grainger, the Associated General Contractors of New York, the Concrete Industry Foundation and the ASCE Metropolitan Section.

Come Stroll Fifth Avenue in Bay Ridge By Lore Croghan
INBrooklyn From convent to condos. Now that’s a study in contrasts. At the very end of Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue, a brand-new apartment building stands on a site where nuns lived. Even if you’re too young to remember there was a convent at 401 95th St. before the Arcadia Bay Ridge condos were constructed, you’ll see another big contrast when you walk down the avenue. The glass-clad condo building is right across the street from St. Patrick’s, a yellow-brick 1920s church with a bell tower and a rose window. The Bay Ridge span of Fifth Avenue is a great place for a stroll. The logical way to take this walk is by starting at the car dealerships on the corner of 65th Street and heading
south. Along the way, there’s a fascinating mix of MiddleEastern restaurants and shops, businesses with longevity like Mike’s Donuts and the cutest canine mural ever. Before we show you interesting sights on our north-tosouth Bay Ridge trek, we first want to spotlight the avenue’s very last block, where seven-story condo building 401 95th St. is located. Condo sponsor J&J Property & Management Group LLC bought the former convent site from St. Patrick’s for $3 million in 2009, city Finance Department records show. According to a posting on website We3.com, in February the state Attorney General accepted a condo offering plan for Arcadia Bay Ridge filed by attorney Jodi B. Zimmerman of Ficara & Associates PC. There are 22 residential units, one commercial unit and 13 parking spaces. The Attorney General’s real estate finance database says the expected total sellout price is $23.637 million. The
sponsor’s principals are Tak Kwong Cheung, Hing Ying Cheung, Tin Tak Cheng and Po Yung Cheng. When we checked StreetEasy.com’s posting about Arcadia Bay Ridge after our stroll, asking prices for available condos ranged from $918,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment to $525,000 for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit.
A Pre-Civil War Parish for Catholic Soldiers
Because of the way Bay Ridge’s street grid is laid out, Fourth and Fifth avenues form a V at 95th Street and Fifth Avenue disappears. Fourth Avenue continues south to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Because of this set-up, the Roman Catholic Church of St. Patrick has a Fourth Avenue address although it’s directly across 95th Street from Arcadia Bay Ridge on Fifth Avenue. — Continued on page 15INB —

INBrooklyn The most dazzling sight on Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights and Sunset Park is a graveyard’s gateway. This isn’t just any graveyard. It’s Green-Wood Cemetery, which has been a major visitor magnet pretty much since its 1838 founding. LEFT: One of the most dramatic sights on Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue is the landmarked entrance to Green-Wood Cemetery.
In the 19th century, New Yorkers took carriage rides, picnicked and partied in the hilly 478acre burial ground. Though the setting around it has become urban, it still looks bucolic today. The brownstone gates — which the city landmarked in 1966 — are located at Green-Wood’s main entrance on Fifth Avenue at 25th Street in Greenwood Heights. — Continued on page 15INB —

ways a display of tires outside on the sidewalk. When we’re not distracted by bakeries like Jean Danet at 7526 Fifth Ave. or Leske’s at 7612 Fifth Ave., there’s an array of old-fashioned, mixed-use buildings to see. • A handsome building at 6752 Fifth Ave. on the corner of 68th Street was sold for $2 million last November, Finance Department records show. • There’s a “For Sale” sign on a distinctive building on the corner of Ovington Avenue whose address is 6929 Fifth Ave. The asking price for the old-fashioned house with a ground-floor cafe and two recently gut-renovated apartments is $3.2 million, a posting by Ben Bay Realty listing agent Lucy Badwan says.
According to Finance Department records, when 6929 Fifth Ave. last changed hands in 2016, the price paid for it was $2.6 million. • Right next door, another distinctive building is also for sale. The asking price is $7.5 million for Hall of Fame Billiards at 505 Ovington Ave., a marketing flyer posted by CPEX Real Estate’s Timothy King and Dimitri Venekas says. The building is 19,000 square feet in size and there are about 8,000 square feet of air rights.

Come Stroll Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights and Sunset Park — Continued from page 14NB — St. Patrick’s has a storied history. It was first established as a mission in the 1840s. Back then, St. Patrick’s served as the parish for Catholic soldiers at Fort Hamilton. The church building that preceded the present-day one was built in the early 1850s. Fort Hamilton soldiers’ donations of one dollar per week helped to pay for its construction.
A Remedy for Bald Tires and a Billiard Hall
Now let’s circle back to the northern end of Bay Ridge and take this stroll. The first spot that will catch your eye is 67 Street Tire Shop, which is in a storefront at 6702 Fifth Ave. There’s al-
Come Stroll Fifth Avenue in Greenwood Heights and Sunset Park — Continued from page 14NB — Architects Richard Upjohn and his son Richard Michell Upjohn designed these Gothic Revival-style arches in 1861. You’ll see them as you head south along Fifth Avenue, which is lined with mixed-use rowhouses a century old or more. Mingled in among them are financial institutions, religious buildings — and a popular hilltop recreation area that, like the neighborhood, is named Sunset Park. The park extends along Fifth Avenue from 41st to 44th streets.
The Jackie Gleason Depot How Sweet It Is! Eleven blocks away from Green-Wood Cemetery’s gates, the first building you’ll find in Sunset Park is the Jackie Gleason Depot. It’s a 919,000-square-foot NYC Transit System building. In 1988, the MTA named it after the late comedian. He played Brooklyn bus driver Ralph Kramden in the 1950s CBS-TV series “The Honeymooners.” The depot is located at 847 Fifth Ave. on the corner of 36th Street. At 889 Fifth Ave. on the northeast corner of 39th Street, a curved turret is a nice touch. The building houses the Sunset Park Diner.
One of Sunset Park’s grandest Fifth Avenue buildings is the former Bay Ridge Savings Bank, which is made of limestone and has Ionic columns flanking its front door and high arched windows. The Classical Revival-style bank at 5323 Fifth Ave. on the corner of 54th Street was constructed in 1926. It now houses a JPMorgan Chase branch.
And They Called It Puppy Love
Our favorite commercial signage in Bay Ridge says “Oasis Vision Center” and is painted, along with evocative palm trees, on the side of the building at 7411 Fifth Ave. You can see the classic signage if you stand on the corner of Bay Ridge Parkway and turn and face north. That old Paul Anka song, “Puppy Love,” will come into your head when you get to 91st Street. As you walk south on the west side of Fifth Avenue, you’ll come face to face with larger-than-life canines on a mural. It’s painted on the side wall of Fifth Avenue Veterinary Hospital, whose address is 9102 Fifth Ave.
The Immigrants’ Basilica Another dramatic Sunset Park property is 5424 Fifth Ave., which houses a clothing store called George Michael Suit Outlet. It’s at the intersection of 55th Street. As corner buildings with turrets go, this one’s especially charming. It’s topped by a pointy roof shaped like a witch’s hat. According to a Historic Districts Council posting, J.H. Nadigan designed the Queen Anne-style brick building, which was constructed in 1897. On the south end of Fifth Avenue in Sunset Park, there’s another dazzling sight — the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The granite Romanesque Revival church is located at 526 59th St. The property extends along Fifth Avenue to the corner of 60th Street. The basilica’s construction began in 1907. It was designed by Swiss-born Franz Joseph Untersee, who settled in the Boston area and specialized in ecclesiastic architecture. Our Lady of Perpetual Help has a long tradition as a refuge for immigrants.

Flatbush Property Development Thrives As Uncertainty Over ‘Affordable New York’ Subsides By Alexander McGee, Director – Investment Sales
Analyst – Investment Research
Flatbush’s real estate development market is booming again after experiencing a temporary lull in the months following last year’s enactment of Affordable New York, the reinstatement of a popular tax incentive. As investor and lender uncertainty subsides, builders will continue to break ground in the rapidly evolving central Brooklyn neighborhood, where its unique dynamics and relative value all but guarantee price appreciation. The enactment of Affordable New York in April 2017 — a reiteration of the 421-a tax program that expired over two years ago – was welcomed by developers, but many hit the pause button as they took some time to parse its nuances. The new program offers similar tax advantages to 421-a, but differs in some important ways, such as when the abatement is issued, and how taxes are returned. Affordable New York is undeniably attractive to developers as it provides 100% tax exemption for the construction period, and another 25 years after the completion of a project. After that period, a builder can reap additional tax benefits for an-
other 10 years, with the exemption based squarely on the percentage of affordable units in the building. While the government does not provide immunity from taxes at the commencement of a project, as it did with 421-a, it refunds the tax increases over that period. At the same time, some banks do not underwrite construction loans to the full tax abatement, which consequentially effects builders’ construction schedule. Bank lending is far more stringent with the new program as most are requiring a significant amount of due diligence, including tax opinion letters from an attorney. Developers are understandably wary about breaking ground, but as more clarity emerged, banks and builders are becoming more comfortable with the process. Realizing that the reward for buying land in Flatbush far outweighs the risks, developers have swiftly been scooping up land. In 2018, about 13 projects are expected to come online in the neighborhood, nearly doubling 2017’s 7 projects, according to data collected by Recity. From 2019 through 2022, an additional 35 projects are expected to break ground. About 410,000 square feet of new construction should emerge this year. The Affordable New York tax incentive

is enormously attractive in neighborhoods in Central Brooklyn where the Area Medium Income (AMI) requirements are close to market rents, such as Flatbush. The incentive allows developers to charge up to 130% of AMI, which corresponds to $2,993 for a two-bedroom apartment. For the same two-bedroom apartment in Flatbush, free market rent is $2,150. The law, consequently, provides a clear path for developers in Flatbush to utilize the advantages of the tax abatement while operating a rental building at market rent. This differs starkly with Manhattan, where the affordable rental rate is significantly lower than the market rental rate.

Palpable Price Appreciation Developers have been fond of Flatbush for years, due largely to its attractive zoning relative to other neighborhoods in the borough. Indeed, parts of Flatbush offer some of the highest Floor-Area-Ratios (FAR) in Brooklyn, only trailing the rezoned areas of Williamsburg and Downtown Brooklyn. Therefore, for a developer looking to build more scale but pay a lower land basis, Flatbush is one of the few options around. Nevertheless, the impact of Affordable New York over the past year on Flatbush cannot be overstated. At the current pace, dollar volume in the development market will likely outpace 2017’s tally of $33.5 million. From January through April, dollar volume in Flatbush reached $16.32 million, 22% higher than the same period a year earlier, according to Ariel Property Advisors’ Investment Research Division. This increase coincided with sizeable appreciation, with the price per buildable square foot for vacant lots costing $209, an astounding 64% jump year-over-year. However, while Flatbush development sites have appreciated in recent months, the assets offer considerable upside as they remain significantly below the Brooklyn’s overall average price per buildable square foot of $245 in the first four months of 2018, and markedly cheaper than other neighborhoods, such as Clinton Hill, where land sold for $319 per buildable square foot. Lately, sites have approached and even
‘Affordable New York is undeniably attractive to developers as it provides 100% tax exemption for the construction period, and another 25 years after the completion of a project.’ —Ariel Property Investors marketed by Ariel Property Advisors, recently sold for a collective $9.995 million, or $218 per buildable square foot, which is a record high in the area for Flatbush. Along with pricing, developers are also keenly aware of the rapidly changing dynamics in the neighborhood, including a recently built 243-room Holiday Inn, as well as Hudson Companies’ 170-unit, 65,000 square foot rental building on Clarkson Avenue. At 2100 Bedford Avenue, Flatbush’s first luxury condominium building, sell-outs were the highest in Flatbush’s history, with the average price per square foot at $859. Looking ahead, with market uncertainty about Affordable New York dissipating, the development market in Flatbush should continue to flourish. Whether it be attractive pricing and zoning, or the Area Median Income component of the abatement, banks and developers alike will remain enamored with Flatbush, one of hottest development markets in Brooklyn.

According to Villavicencio Family Photo via AP officials, the Legal Pablo Villavicencio Aid Society won an with his two daughemergency stay of ters, Luciana and the deportation Antonia. of Pablo Villavicencio, the 35-year-old father of two who was turned over to immigration officials on Friday, June 1 after making a routine delivery – which he’d done before with the help of his IDNYC card – to the base. This time, his IDNYC wasn’t enough. Upon his entrance, the fort says Villavicencio signed a waiver permitting a full background check – something, reports claim the deliveryman says he never did – which flagged a warrant for his deportation (he failed to leave the country under court mandate by July, 2010). Now, the deliveryman has been granted stay through July 20. Until then, he will remain in ICE custody, but is allowed to pursue a "meritorious form of relief from removal" – adjustment of status for permanent residency. Villavicencio’s record is clean, officials claim, aside from not returning to Ecuador in 2010. He subsequently married an American citizen, Sandra Chica, the mother of his two children. He is also a taxpayer. His detention had sparked national outrage, and the state secured pro-bono legal counsel to represent him.

3 Guys from Brooklyn Celebrates its 20th Anniversary! By John Alexander INBROOKLYN
Photos courtesy of 3 Guys From Brooklyn
3 Guys from Brooklyn really has something to celebrate -- 20 years of providing the freshest fruit and vegetables in the borough at its iconic location at 6502 Fort Hamilton Parkway. That’s quite an accomplishment, especially considering that it is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And in honor of the store’s 20th anniversary, 3 Guys is rolling back prices to what they were in 1998. “We’ve been here on this corner for 20 years and we want to celebrate,” 3 Guys co-owner Philip A. Penta said. “It has been our pleasure to provide this unique and diverse community with quality and aﬀordable produce for these past 20 years. Starting on June 18, our weekly circular will be rolled back for one week to reﬂect the prices of our ﬁrst year in business! Same great quality and variety that our customers have come to expect but priced like it’s 1998!” It actually all started 30 years ago when Howard and Scott Zimmerman and Philip C. Penta decided to open what they called the UN of grocery stores. They oﬀered great deals and the freshest produce available in a neighborhood place where old friends could meet, neighbors run into each other, and families come shopping together from all across the borough…or New York City for that matter. Howard and Scott’s father Stanley Zimmerman had originally put up a fruit store at 65th Street and Fort Hamilton Parkway in 1975. Then, in 1978 Stanley along with his brother Howard and his brother-in-law Harry (the original Three Guys) moved to the current location.
Top: 3 Guys now and then. Above: 3 Guys interior now. Right: The original 3 Guys (from left), Howard Zimmerman, Philip C Penta and Scott Zimmerman. The current 3 Guys is run by Scott and Philip, and continues the tradition that Stanley’s store began – selling only the highest quality produce, at aﬀordable prices. Today, they oﬀer 100 varieties of fruit and vegetables, along with other deli and bakery products in the same spot where Stanley Zimmerman originally started it all. Stanley visited the store every day until the day he passed in 2009. Tragically, Howard was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2003. The spot where 3 Guys sits is oﬃcially designated by the city as Howard Zimmerman Corner. “It’s named after him because of all of the things he tried to do for this community,” Penta said. Today, the family still remains a big part of the business and people of all ages, ethnicities and origins come from
Prices still amazing — now with an app!
n e a r and far to get their fruits and vegetables from 3 Guys from Brooklyn. And the quality of their products is of major importance to them. “There have been a few comments about things getting more expensive,” Penta said. “Anybody can sell cheap produce for a cheap price, but we don’t want to give our customers something that’s going to disappear in their refrigerator overnight. We want to provide good produce for a value. I think that’s what sets us apart from other places in the neighborhood.” And rolling back their prices to those of 1998 for the week is their way of giving back to the community. “We felt this was the best way to celebrate this milestone anniversary,” Penta said. “We’re proud to be a part of this community and we want to continue to be a part of the community.” And in keeping with Zimmerman’s legacy of giving back, Penta continues to be actively involved in the community. “We still continue to partner with charity runs, charity walks, churches, synagogues, fundraisers and other community-based organizations,” he said. Penta wants people to know that 3 Guys will continue to be a force for good in the neighborhood. “We are thankful for what this community has done for us and the price rollback is our way of giving back to the community,” Penta added.

Rustic Bouquets Add Natural Flair To Wedding Celebrations
Couples opting to get back to basics, streamline their nuptials and create more intimate and less superﬁcial aﬀairs often gravitate toward rustic celebrations to showcase their ideals. Rustic weddings also may appeal to environmentalists and men and women who want their weddings to be as eco-friendly as possible. Rustic weddings may include those ceremonies and receptions that take place outdoors or in abodes, such as barns, wineries, castles, or converted silos or town factories. In fact, Bridal Guide says that barn weddings have never been more popular Ñ among both urban and rural couples alike. Coordinating a rustic wedding may mean letting go of perceived notions of how everything from food to favors to ﬂowers should be. In fact, one way to describe rustic weddings Ñ and especially the ﬂoral arrangements that adorn them Ñ is Òpurposely imperfect.Ó Rustic wedding bouquets may seem like they were plucked right out of the garden or grabbed through a stroll in a meadow. TheyÕre rarely symmetrical or feature the customary ﬂowers of more formal wedding celebrations. When designing rustic bouquets, ﬂorists may keep the stems of wildﬂowers or other blooms untethered for a relaxed feel. Long stemmed arrangements are quite popular, and trends point toward bouquets that are loosely tied with raﬃa, twine, vines and other natural materials rather than more reﬁned ribbon. Another way rustic bouquets set themselves apart is with the introduction of other elements into the arrangements. Not merely blooms and greenery, rustic pieces may feature twigs, vines, berries, scabiosa pods, ivy, and feathery ferns. The heights of elements in the bouquet are varied, and the bouquets will not have an overly uniform shape. Rustic bouquets are far from pretentious, and brides shouldn’t feel that these bouquets are delicate or will fall apart when handled. When planning a rustic wedding, couples can work with their ﬂorists to create bouquets and arrangements that ﬁt with their visions.

magine reciting vows along the Mediterranean coast or amid pastel-hued homes and swaying palm trees. For the travel-inclined, destination weddings present the perfect opportunity to meld wedding and honeymoon all into one with family and friends around to enjoy the magic. The Knot Real Weddings Study, the largest survey of its kind, surveys thousands of American brides and grooms to determine the latest wedding trends. In its 2016 report, the Knot revealed 20 percent of weddings that took place that year were destination weddings. Couples are increasingly leaning on entertainment and personalization to create memorable experiences for their guests, and destination weddings are great ways to create those unique experiences. While planning a wedding inevitably involves some obstacles and even some stress, planning a destination wedding presents a unique set of obstacles. Before couples commit to a destination wedding, it’s important to first consider a few factors to ensure knots get tied without a hitch. *Pick a meaningful location (but one that works for guests, too). Exchanging vows at a favorite hiking spot can give guests an inside view into what makes you tick as a couple, but the location of the ceremony should not come at the expense of practicality. Choose a locale that speaks to you but will also offer the convenience and amenities that work for the guests who will be traveling. *See the place in person. If budget allows, book a trip to the intended destination to see the facilities and location, advise the experts at Brides magazine. Working with vendors in
person also can simplify sorting out certain details. *Send save-the-date cards promptly. Unlike traditional weddings in which reminders can be sent roughly six months before the wedding, save-thedate cards for destination weddings should be mailed at least nine months to a year in advance of the big day. *Hire a professional. Professional wedding planners may prove invaluable when it comes to destination weddings. Rather than organizing everything on your own, you can hire a wedding planner to take care of itineraries, obtain information about necessary travel documents, coordinate with local vendors, and much more. *Consider tourist seasons. Weather tends to be best during tourist seasons. Therefore, make sure to reserve hotel room blocks and venues promptly. Slightly before or after peak season may still be fine, but ensure that vendors will be available and look into weather trends carefully before choosing a date. *Research the legality. According to the Knot, many countries have residency requirements, which means you must live in that country for a certain period of time before the ceremony. Factor this into budget and availability. *Scale back on DIY. Handling many of the details while getting married close to home can be challenging, but doing so for a destination wedding can be difficult to organize. Scale back on DIY, leaving many of the details to the professionals. Destination weddings require extra planning, but they can be memorable ways for couples to start their new life together.

FAITH IN BROOKLYN Park Church Co-Op Launches Drive To Expand Membership, Ministries By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor INBrooklyn
The Park Church Co-Op, a Lutheran ministry serving Greenpoint, has launched a drive to grow the congregation and increase donations, with the goal of being self-sustaining by the end of this year. The church’s determination to expand as a viable church brings to the forefront a delicate balance between meeting organizational deadlines and measuring its membership’s intangible spiritual growth. Facing closure when its grant from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Metropolitan New York Synod expires at the end of 2018, the church made the decision to survive. The church, on Russell Street across from Greenpoint’s McGolrick Park, launched its campaign to increase the number of worshipers attending Sunday services, to generate more giving from the community-at-large, and to expand the church’s outreach programs. “As a church, we have been growing slowly but steadily since I arrived in 2015,” said Pastor Amy Kienzle, who took the helm of what had previously been known as the Church of the Messiah. “But we are facing a deadline this fall for showing that we can sustain ourselves with both people and money, without needing as much funding from the larger Lutheran organizations. This is a challenge that I feel confident we will meet but our efforts are dependent on all church members and our partners in the community.” Kienzle has now reached out to all denominations and faiths, as well as friends and neighbors in a spirit of “radical openness” that furthers Christian teachings of “love thy neighbor.” “Our number one mission is to bring healing to people,” she said. A leader in social outreach programs and a groundbreaking cultural venue, Park Church Co-Op supports its outreach activities primarily through weekly donations from congregants.
The current campaign encourages weekly pledge commitments ranging from $5 up to $100, with special gifts and modest perks attached to each level of giving. The co-op also hopes to engage local businesses and organizations in the supporting the mission. Sunday morning services, which begin at 11 a.m. currently draw 25-30 people, a number that the church is seeking to increase to 50 over the summer. Moreover, Park Church Co-Op is involved in community outreach through its homeless respite program that offers shelter to 15 people in the winter. It also opens its doors to community meetings, after-school programming and artistic endeavors, such as film shoots and art shows. The Park Church Co-Op’s home is an historic church building marking its 110th year, formerly the Lutheran Church of the Messiah. “We are thankful for the foundation the faithful people of that church built over the past century. We look forward to the future, reaching out to all of our neighbors—the longtime and brand-new residents—to provide relevant spiritual nourishment in these changing times,” says Kienzle. However, Kienzle points out that healing and building a sense of spiritual safety and trust among church members takes time—often longer than the deadlines set by denominational bodies. When Park Church learned that it would not be receiving more funds and would probably have to close, it was the wider community that also spoke up. “The community that we built was shocked that Park Church would be closing, and expressed that shock to the bishop’s office and the ELCA representative,” said Kienzle. As a result, Park Church was granted a probationary period to meet certain benchmarks in membership growth and financial stewardship. Donation pledges to the co-op can be made through the new With Friends giving website at https://withfriends.co/ park_church_co_op/join.

Iftars Around Brooklyn Unite Different Peoples By Francesca Norsen Tate Religion Editor INBrooklyn
Love and Justice are two cornerstones of the three Abrahamic traditions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. And in community Iftars around Brooklyn, these actions were at the forefront. An Iftar is the traditional break-the-fast meal that Muslims take following a rigorous daylong fast that is made even more pronounced during the summer months’ increased daylight. During that time, Muslims abstain from food, water and pleasurable activities. They also are commanded to abstain from negativity, anger and other iniquities of the heart, instead focusing on charity and inner discipline. The last 10 days of Ramadan are considered a time of great revelation. Ramadan concludes this weekend. Charity, discipline and the just treatment of fellow human beings were the themes reinforced through the evening at two community Iftars in particular. Beth Shalom v’Emeth Reform Temple (B’ShERT) in Victorian Flatbush hosted an Iftar that the Interfaith Coalition of Brooklyn organized for May 31. A week later, on June 7, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams hosted Borough Hall’s 13th annual Iftar. B’ShERT’s Iftar brought together sev-
eral faith groups, including the East Midwood Jewish Center, Our Lady of Refuge Roman Catholic Church, the Turkish Cultural Center, the Council of Peoples Organization, the Peace Islands Institute, the American Council of Minority Women and the North East Islamic Community Center. They shared a meal, and learned the beloved Hebrew song Shalom Chavurim. They also bid a tender farewell to B’ShERT’s Cantor Suzanne Bernstein, who recently retired from that role. One of the evening’s highlights was a creative project in which Jews, Muslims and Christians at each of the round tables teamed up to compose a prayer. Then representatives from each table read the prayers—many of which emphasized thanksgiving, joy, unity and blessings. At Borough Hall, speakers including Adams -- who has for many years honored individuals in the Muslim community who have brought people together peacefully -emphasized the urgency of continuing to do so in the current political environment. Adams said, “I want to speak about the importance of highlighting the borough’s religious diversity and strengthening interfaith ties in an environment of divisive political rhetoric nationally and an increase in

bias-based attacks locally.” One of the groups whom he recognized at the June 7 Iftar had organized an event to counteract the “Punish A Muslim Day,” that had originated in the United Kingdom and then gone viral. Abdul Elenani, CEO and founder of the Brooklyn-based company Cocoa Grinder, created a “Love A Muslim Day,” in response. That idea also caught on quickly, with people donating coffee, meals and other acts of kindness. One of the honorees was an organization, the Yemeni American Merchants Association, which has organized national
bodega strikes to protest the Trump administration’s executive order that bans migration citizens from Muslim-majority nations. Accepting the citation on behalf of YAMA was board member Saleh Hassan. Among the other honorees: Yasmin Dwedar, an advocate for taxi and limousine drivers; Sergeant Zagham Abbas; youth Kazi Ateea; Douglas Jablon, executive vice president for patient relations and special assistant to the president of Maimonides Medical Center and frequent speaker at interfaith events; and Abddul Jaber, who received a Lifetime Award.

Guild for Exceptional Children’s 8th Annual Golf Outing By Ariama Long INBROOKLYN
The nonproﬁt Guild for Exceptional Children (GEC) held its eighth annual golf outing at Marine Park Golf Course on Friday, June 1. The event is an important fundraiser for the organization, and also celebrated 60 years of “Building Better Futures” for individuals with special needs. “Golf helps raise needed donations and funds for our mission,” noted Caroline Mansuetto, director of development for the GEC. Golfers enjoyed 18 holes, as well as an extravagant BBQ complete with chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad and all the trimmings during the day. In the evening, they were joined by friends and family to pig out at the decked-out buﬀet and open bar. Founded in 1958, GEC has helped children and adults with developmental disabilities to live their best lives for decades. The same excitement and dedication was reﬂected in every participant’s face as they piled out of the lined-up golf carts. Awards were given out in the evening. The competition included the categories of Hole In One (no winners this year), Low Gross, Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Putting Contest, with a large golf ball award and other prizes and goodie bags for winners.

Golden Action Will Save ‘For Hire’ Drivers From Losing More Income Senator’s Alternative Solution Gets Short Shrift from TLC Bureaucrats
Well-intentioned newspapers with well-intentioned sources can really screw up the truth in search of a “David and Goliath” story, painting Goliath with the broadest of bad strokes. This is what happened last week when Daily News writer Stephen Rex Brown tried to do a hatchet job on state Sen. Marty Golden with half-truths disguised behind masks of unyielding principle. Thousands of drivers — largely recent immigrants and blue- and whitecollar workers who have lost their jobs in other areas of endeavor — have sustained financial havoc with the influx of Uber and Lyft. These drivers earn less money working the same amount of time often having to drive for a regular car service by day and Uber or Lyft by night. At issue was a Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC) proposal to quadruple the number of wheelchair-accessible vehicles. This would cost millions of dollars, as the amount of such vehicle adjustments would go from 5 percent to 25 percent over the next five years. This is the real world, folks: Do you think that the Taxi owners, Uber and their ilk would personally absorb these new costs? If you do, think again. All of these new costs will (1) lessen
the income of already hard-put drivers and (2) be used as justification to raise their fares. Wheelchair accessibility champion Jean Ryan, who uses a wheelchair, is to be commended for supporting any measure that potentially increases accessibility. She’s done this well for several years. But linking Golden’s bold parachute jumping skydive to support veterans, or the fact that the senator is a retired police officer who receives accident retirement benefits, is a long stretch into the insidious empire of “gotcha” and snarky journalism. Interestingly, Brown’s story didn’t bother to learn how many wheelchairaccessible vehicles are already out there moving through the city and beyond. A Golden spokesman said, “Connecting Sen. Golden’s recent charity tandem skydiving event for veterans with a debate involving for-hire vehicle ride accessibility is inaccurate, reckless and unfair.” Well put. Golden’s sensible alternative would be a centrally sourced wheelchair accessibility system to improve this untoward situation without levying yet another fine on the drivers who are now working at below-minimum wage rates.

Last Friday night, the leaders of the Bay Ridge Center, which is headed by Marianne Nicolosi and which provides invaluable services to senior citizens here, held a “Night at the Races” fundraiser. It was an exciting success
that featured actual horse races with stirring pre-recorded narrations, aided, of course, by voluble and entertaining emcee Peter Clavin, who is emerging as the voice of Bay Ridge. Here are some highlights:

AT HOME Four Decorating Tips For the Perfect Outdoor Entertaining Space
Above: Boxwoods and pittosporums add a wow factor to this porch. Right: Container gardens are an easy landscaping solution that can be transported or rearranged.
When it comes to outdoor entertaining, making sure your space is ready is critical for enjoying summer — from its “unoﬃcial” start over Memorial Day weekend all the way through Labor Day. Lowe’s recently partnered with Julia Engel, lifestyle inﬂuencer of Gal Meets Glam, to style her new Charleston porch with aﬀordable, eﬀortlessly chic accents so it’s ready to welcome family and friends. The result is a cool, refreshing space to entertain and show oﬀ her home’s curb appeal. If you’re getting ready to celebrate the weekend like Julia, follow these simple tips to turn your backyard or patio into the perfect, aﬀordable, outdoor oasis you can enjoy every beautiful day of summer. • Get the furniture right. Finding the right furniture for your outdoor space can be tricky. Striking the right balance of ample seating while not overwhelming a space is key. Julia opted for a table that was big enough for four, but not so big that she didn’t have space for other entertaining items, like a bar cart and bench with plenty of potted plants. If you’re having trouble piecing together a patio look, Lowe’s has plenty of patio set options to choose from, including 3-piece and 5-piece sets, as well as trendy daybeds, conversation sets and more. • Choose your landscaping. Landscaping is crucial for upgrading your outdoor space as it brings a necessary curb appeal or wow factor to your patio or backyard. In Julia’s front porch, she added boxwoods in varying shapes, sizes and placement patterns. For added interest, she included variegated pittosporums spaced between the boxwoods for some leaf color, and agapanthus for their lovely blue ﬂowers in early summer. These plants all love well-drained soil and bright full-sun exposure. In the more shaded areas, Julia planted pink hydrangeas, acanthus and African iris, all lending foliage and ﬂowers to the garden. If you’re not sure what to plant in your outdoor space, live nursery specialists are available at your local Lowe’s to help you get started. • Select the right containers. A container garden is an easy landscaping solution that can be transported place to place, and is completely customizable. On Julia’s porch she used a variety of pots to include some more seasonal plants that can be changed out through the seasons, but anchored most of the pots with at least one evergreen so she wasn’t tied to re-potting every time the seasons change. When the tree-form hydrangeas ﬂanking her front door in square planters are done with their spring and summer bloom, Julia plans to transplant them out into the garden for their permanent home — that’s the beauty and ease of container gardening! • Bring the outdoors indoors. For the outdoor dining portion of Julia’s patio, she wanted a natural transition from inside the home, so she added details like an outdoor rug and outdoor lighting, plus some more homey accents like a table lamp to style her bar cart, bringing indoor elegance to her outdoor entertaining space. By giving your outdoor space a cozy touch of home, it will quickly become your favorite spot to relax in the morning with coﬀee, or with a glass of wine at the end of the day.
