More speed cameras on the way as Cuomo signs Gounardes bill BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

There will be five times as many speed cameras on the streets of New York City as there are now after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill sponsored by Brooklyn state Sen. Andrew Gounardes to increase the number of the picture-taking devices in school zones. “This bill will increase the number from 140 to 750 speed cameras in the city, extend the hours of operation of the speed cameras and will mandate that the city prioritize placement of the cameras by speed and crash data,” Cuomo said during a bill signing ceremony on Staten Island on Mother’s Day. The cameras will be operational from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. “It’s common sense. It works and it is the right thing to do,” Cuomo said. Gounardes, a Democrat who represents Bay Ridge and several other Southwest Brooklyn neighborhoods, called the new law “a major victory in the fight for street safety.” Since speed cameras were first installed in New York as a pilot program in 2013, speeding has been reduced by 63 percent, according to Gounardes. During that same time period, there has

Luna Park thrill seekers raise money for teen program BY PAULA KATINAS

PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Thrill seekers who enjoyed a day of rides in Coney Island’s famous Luna Park helped raise more than $100,000 for a Brooklyn charity that helps teenagers whose parents are incarcerated. The owners of Luna Park visited the headquarters of Children of Promise, NYC in Bed-Stuy on Thursday to present a $107,000 check to the organization for its teen programs. The donation stems from Luna Park’s Second Annual Charity Day in which patrons donated $10 per person in exchange for free rides on the amusement park’s opening day in April. The proceeds from this year’s charity day were double last year’s total, according to

representatives of Central Amusement International, the company that operates Luna Park. CPNYC’s Teen Program is aimed at young people 14-18 years of age and offers career

BY PAULA KATINAS Private security guards would patrol churches, mosques and synagogues on the city’s dime if a bill sponsored by three Brooklyn elected officials is approved by the City Council. Democratic Councilmembers Justin Brannan, Chaim Deutsch and Kalman Yeger are the main architects behind a bill that would allow houses of worship to hire private security, including armed guards, and then apply to the city to be reimbursed for the costs. Reimbursing religious insti-

tutions for security guards could cost as much as $200 million, according to one official. The program would not be mandatory and houses of worship would have to meet certain specifications in order to qualify for funding. The measure is designed to help safeguard religious institutions against terror attacks, according to Yeger, who represents Borough Park and parts of Bensonhurst. The Borough Park portion of his district is home to a large population of Orthodox Jewish residents and contains numerous synagogues. But Yeger was quick to point out

that the bill covers all religions. “We have seen that houses of worship are regularly coming under attack. We have to do everything we can to protect them. Keeping people safe is a basic function of government,” Yeger told this newspaper. The bill is not meant as a knock on the NYPD, according to Brannan, who represents Bay Ridge Dyker Heights and parts of Bensonhurst. “The NYPD does a great job keeping our big city safe but this would give all houses of worship the option to hire additional security and then be reimbursed,” he told

this newspaper via email. Rabbi Aaron Raskin, the religious leader of Congregation B’nai Avraham in Brooklyn Heights, endorsed the bill. “I think it’s an amazing idea. There are cities in Europe that pay for security for local synagogues,” he told this newspaper. Donna Lieberman, executive director of the New York Civil Liberities Union, said she is troubled by the bill. “Any time government officials seek to siphon away public funds for private religious institutions we should be concerned about the privileging of religion and the separation of

Myrie tells constituents how state budget works BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Money was the main topic of discussion as freshman state Sen. Zellnor Myrie held a town hall to raise public awareness of the inner workings of state government. The purpose of the town hall was two-fold: 1) To familiarize constituents with the state budget process, and 2) to

church and state. Publicly funding private armed guards at houses of worship is a scattershot approach to public safety, a poor use of resources and sits on shaky constitutional ground,” she said. Yeger said he is aware of the bill’s possible implications on the constitutional issue of separation of church and state, but added that he isn’t worried about stepping over a line. “The government already provides services to religious institutions. If a house of worship is on fire, the FDNY puts the fire out,” he told this newspaper.

highlight the items Myrie fought to fund in the spending package that was finalized in early April, according to the senator’s office. “We know the budget process is far from perfect, but I am proud to say that we made huge strides for our community this year,” Myrie said in a statement following the “Budget Town Hall” he held Saturday at St. Francis de Sales School for the Deaf on Eastern Parkway. Here are some of the items Myrie secured funding for in the budget: • $500,000 for an alternative school and vocational training program to help students get high school equivalency diplomas and obtain job skills; • $330,000 for the Commission on Judicial Conduct to ensure that foreclosure decisions are investigated; • $200,000 increase in antiviolence outreach funding for Brooklyn; • $100,000 for re-entry services for the formerly incarcerated; • $75,000 for organizations providing housing services; • $60,000 for communitybased food services for lowincome people.

Bay Ridge gears up for 67th annual Norwegian Day Parade BY JAIME DEJESUS

JDEJESUS @BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

A historic Bay Ridge parade continues to march on. The 67th annual Norwegian Constitution Parade, which commemorates the signing of the Norwegian constitution on May 17, 1893, celebrates the culture and its contributions on this side of the Atlantic. It’s always held on the Sunday closest to the date the document was signed — May 19, this year — with marchers taking to Third Avenue to strut their stuff. “We are all geared up and ready to go,” said Norwegian Day Parade Chair Arlene Rutuelo. “[Former] Senator Marty Golden will be our grand marshal for all his years of support for the Norwegian community as well as the Bay Ridge community at large.” As it does every year, this year’s iteration has a special theme — Continuing the Legacy. “It’s going to be interesting to see the floats,” Rutuelo said. “A lot of our groups make their own and to see some of the originality will be fun. We’ve increased some of the bands, which we are excited about. We have a lot of civic non-Norwegian partici-

having a parade?’” she said. “But we’ve worked really hard in the last few years to educate the surrounding com-

munities about some of the unique things Norwegians have done for New York City, the state and the United States

as a whole. We invite everyone to celebrate with us, as we celebrate with other cultures. “It’s important, particularly for the younger generations,” Rutuelo added, stressing that it isn’t important whether the neighborhood is still the Scandinavian outpost it was in years past. “It doesn’t matter if we live here or not. We have a weekend that we celebrate and it becomes a destination. People spend money in our community and that’s good for the economy of the neighborhood. I heard that a person is coming from Indiana to our parade this year. They make it a weekend of visiting New York and come into the only New York City Norwegian Day parade.” Rutuelo is hoping the weather cooperates. But, she added, “It doesn’t matter. We’re Vikings. We’ll march in the snow if we have to. We welcome everyone to come and be a Norwegian and Viking for a day.” Marchers will line up on Third Avenue, between 83rd and 84th streets, and head down to Leif Ericson Park, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, where the reviewing stand will be located. The parade will kick off at 1:30 p.m.

Maimonides Medical Center representatives prepare to greet guests.

The Brooklyn Eagle, Home Reporter and Brooklyn Spectator hosted a well-attended senior living expo at Dyker Beach Golf Club on Friday, May 10. There was food, fun and freebies for those attending, along with informative booths provided by hospitals, realtors, law firms, therapists and local businesses. In all, there were some 33 exhibitors at the expo offering information packets, product demonstrations and all kinds of free promotional items. There were raffles, prizes galore and a 50/50 raffle. The keynote speakers — Maimonides Prostate Center’s Urologic Oncologist Dr. Ariel Schulman; NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island Urologist Dr. Abdo Kabaritti; and Renata Landskind

and Terence Ricaforte, law partners from Landskind & Ricaforte Law Group — delivered highly informative talks revolving around medicine, health care and legal affairs. Schulman discussed preventative urological care for seniors. “How prominent is prostate cancer today?” Schulman asked. “If you look at all cases of cancer in the United States, it’s about 10 percent. It’s the most common cancer for men. “For men with prostate cancer detected early, prostate cancer is not a death sentence. We have a lot to treat it Continued on page 3

but the key is early detection,” added Schulman. To that end, he also told his listeners that the government now recommends testing for prostate cancer for men between 45 and 75, and discussed the various ways of treating the disease. Kabaritti also addressed advances in urology. He explained that the good news is that people are living longer. “Now, patients who make it to the age of 65 are expected to live for another 10 or 15 years. And in fact when they talk about urology, 50 percent of the people that are seen by a urologist are 65 years or older.” Kabaritti explained what a urologist actually does. “Bladder, prostate, kidneys are areas urologists focus on,” said Kabaritti. He also stressed the importance of seeing a urologist. “Three of the top seven cancers are in urology. Prostate is only in men but both men and women can suffer from bladder and kidney cancer,” he added. Ricaforte shifted the subject away from medicine to discuss legal concerns. “My wife Renata and I have been doing this a combined 30 years and about a year and a half ago, we decided to break away from a larger law firm and take a smaller approach because we wanted to help our clients look at things, not just in a cookie cutter fashion, but to take advantage of everything at their disposal.” “I’m an estate planning and elder law attorney,” he went on. “And the biggest concern for individuals as they age is their health care costs that will not be covered by insurance. For example,

The key is to plan early and plan appropriately, and we want to help educate you on your options.” Following the keynote speeches, New York Memory Center’s Megan Christ, a caregiver and social worker, discussed the importance of adult day programs, specifically for those with dementia. Laura Volkmer, LMSW, director of services for older adults at Family Health Centers at NYU Langone, was happy to participate in the expo. “I’m here today to spread the word about our services,” Volkmer told this paper. “Many people in the neighborhood still don’t know about us or haven’t received information about the services we provide. We have a senior center, we have a social adult day program and a transportation program located right here in Bay Ridge along with other services for older adults throughout the southwest Brooklyn community. I feel like people should just take advantage of what’s available to them.” Continued on page 4

Walter Ochoa from Right at Home also spoke about the importance of seniors staying active. “We actually work hand-in-hand with Family Health Centers because you want to help people at home, but you also want older adults to join activities and socialize in the community,” said Ochoa. “Our goal is to keep them in the community and keep them safe in the community. If you need assistance at home, we can send a caregiver to take care of you and at the same time help with the social aspect.” Louis Peters, owner of AMP Insurance Brokerage, has participated in previous senior expos. “We’re here to offer all types of Medicare plans, Medicare supplements, Medicare advantage plans and prescription drug plans,” Peters told this paper. “It’s our pleasure to represent all the major companies. We’ve always gotten a big turnout here and we’re delighted to be back.” Empire State Bank was a sponsor for the event. Exhibitors included Aama Audiology, the Alzheimer’s Association, AARP Bensonhurst/Ovington Chapter, Aetna, the Allure Group, AMP Insurance, Asian Community Care Management, Bay Ridge Family Dental Care, Bay Ridge Holistic Healthcare, Ben Bay Realty Co. of Bay Ridge, the Bensonhurst Center, Caption Call, Fort Funding, Island Shores, Jag-One, MJHS-Menorah, Northfield Bank, Norwegian Christian Home, OHEL, One Day Bath New York, RN Staffing Solutions, Services for Older Adults, St. Francis Animal Hospital, StairGlide New York and United Healthcare. Russell Craig Targove was the master of ceremonies and Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus attended the expo along with Clio Markman representing U.S. Rep. Max Rose. Peter Killen, president of the Bay Ridge Chapter of AARP labeled the expo a success. “The most amazing thing for me is the media coverage we receive from the Home Reporter, Brooklyn Spectator and Brooklyn Eagle at these expos. It’s so important because not many neighborhoods, if any, have the coverage that we have here in Bay Ridge,” he added.  See more photos on page 12.

Maimonides Medical Center Is Ranked Among the Top 10 Hospital Systems Nationwide for Clinical Excellence Government Report Places Maimonides Among Elite Group of US Hospitals that Achieve Superior Survival Rates Kenneth D. Gibbs, Maimonides Medical Center president and CEO, recently announced that Maimonides has been ranked among the Top 10 health systems in the country for superior survival rates – placing it among the nation’s best hospitals, including: Massachusetts General, Cleveland Clinic, Cedars Sinai and New York-Presbyterian. “From the very first year that the federal government has measured mortality rates, Maimonides has been a top performer,” said Mr. Gibbs. “At first there were only two cardiac conditions evaluated – heart attack and heart failure – and it was no surprise that a renowned Heart Hospital like Maimonides would do well. But as additional conditions were added to the mix – like pneumonia and stroke – our medical center has continued to achieve exceptional results for Brooklyn’s families across multiple specialty areas.” The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) annually compares mortality rates at every hospital in the nation. The most recent report* shows that only a handful of hospitals nationwide rise above the rest in maintaining superior results for their patients. CMS reviews seven diagnoses for mortality. Maimonides is above average in all seven categories – and significantly above average in five of the seven: heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, COPD and stroke. “It’s a validation of the many teams who work day and night to deliver outstanding care to patients at Maimonides,” said Dr. Samuel Kopel, Chief Medical Officer of Maimonides Medical Center. “Our doctors and clinicians never stop building on their successes – they continually try to exceed the standard of care to bring the best possible results to every patient.” Maimonides Medical Center has a long history of providing exceptional patient care. It does this through a culture of teamwork in its interdisciplinary Centers of Excellence and its commitment to continuous innovation. What truly sets Maimonides clinicians apart is teamwork. To support the overall culture of collaboration, the Maimonides Leadership Team ensures that clinicians have everything they need to provide the finest care in a safe and technologically advanced environment. The nationally recognized doctors at Maimonides do the rest – and do it best. LEGACY OF INNOVATION Maimonides built New York City’s first Hybrid Operating Rooms, incorporating the most advanced imaging technology to support the most advanced surgical procedures. And our Robotic Surgery Program boasts some of the nation’s most experienced doctors, reducing patient risk across multiple disciplines. Maimonides Cancer Center exceeded standards in all categories during its most recent re-accreditation survey, earning the coveted Outstanding Achievement Award from the ACS Commission on Cancer. Our fully-accredited Breast Center is home to an American College of Radiology designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. Maimonides Children’s Hospital is the only recognized comprehensive pediatric program in Brooklyn – with the full array of pediatric subspecialties. And as Brooklyn’s leader in trauma care, Maimonides is designated both an Adult and a Pediatric Trauma Center, due to the recognized expertise of our departments of Emergency Medicine, Surgery and Pediatrics. Maimonides is also a leader in managing pain for patients in all settings in ways that minimize the risk of opioid addiction – our doctors have published many of the leading studies in this arena.

Landskind and Ricaforte: A small law firm by choice

Terence Ricaforte and Renata Landskind. BY JOHN ALEXANDER

JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Renata Landskind and Terence Ricaforte are determined to keep their law practice small so that they can offer personalized services to their clients that larger law firms can’t do. “It’s all about building strong relationships with all our clients,” Ricaforte told this paper. “We’re proud to provide affordable legal services based on an attitude of care and compassion, by building upon open and honest relationships with every client that walks through our doors.” Landskind & Ricaforte Law Group is a full-service law firm providing estate planning services to the pre and post-retirement community. The firm was founded on a passion for and commitment to serving the legal needs of families, the elderly and the disabled in New York. With a combined legal experience of nearly 30 years between them, Landskind and Ricaforte, who are married and have three daughters, decided to leave the larger firm they were working for and start their own law firm last year. “I’ve been practicing law in Bay Ridge for 19 years,” said Landskind.

The partners have considerable expertise and legal skills in the areas of Elder Law, Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, Probate and Estate Administration, Estate Litigation, Medicaid Crisis Planning and Real Estate, among others. Ricaforte was born and raised in Brooklyn, while Landskind was born in the Ukraine but grew up in Brooklyn and Staten Island. “After graduating from law school, I went to night school at New York Law.

he was able to learn all the facets of elder law and estate planning. It was during his time at Connors and Sullivan that Ricaforte met Landskind, who was with the firm for 19 years. The couple left the firm in 2018 and decided to branch out and start their own. “We do the same type of work that we did previously but with a more personalized aspect,” Ricaforte explained. “When our clients come to us, they are working with us. They’re not working with an associate or a

text them at any time. They are social media-savvy and can access any material they need at any time. They are also proud of the relationships they’ve developed with other attorneys and judges during their time working in the court system. “Terence and I have vast but different experiences that all mesh together,” said Landskind. “His experiences are in the litigation area and mine are in estate planning. When I was admitted to law school, I was working for counsel to the public administrator in Kings County, which is the attorney that is appointed to administer estates and to help the public administrator administer estates of people who die without wills and do not have close relatives. So through that position, I met a lot of the attorneys, judges and court personnel in Brooklyn.” At the end of the day, both lawyers would just like to keep their practice small so they can cater to the needs of their clients. “This is the way our clients get personalized attention, this is the way we can build relationships and I think part of the reason our clients love us is because of that,” Landskind explained. “They can always get in touch with us and if something has to get done, it’s going to get done.”

So when I graduated, I interviewed at the all major prosecutors’ offices and it came down to a choice between Miami and New York, and Miami made the offer,” recalled Ricaforte. Ricaforte missed his family in Brooklyn and ultimately returned home and took a job with the Connors and Sullivan Law Firm as an estate litigator. By doing that,

paralegal. We’re a small firm by choice. And when you come to meet with me or Renata, we’re going to bring a team of professionals in adjacent fields to the table.” Ricaforte and Landskind value the time they can spend with their daughters, 13year-old Sienna, six-year-old Keira and three-year-old Avery. And the familial approach extends to their clients. Their business cards have their cell phone numbers and they encourage clients to call or

Raise a toast to the skyline at your favorite B’klyn rooftop bar

Eye on REAL ESTATE

There’s the Marine Fireboat Station at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge and the DUMBO Clocktower off in the distance.

INBrooklynphotos by Lore Croghan

By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It’s the perfect rite of spring for a real estate nerd. It’s fun for you normal people, too. It can involve heavy drinking or an innocent glass of watermelon juice. Now that spring has finally brought Brooklyn reasonably warm days, it’s time to head for a rooftop bar, stare at the scenery and toast the icons of the skyline. There are numerous places to carry out this entertaining task. I’m particularly partial to Westlight at the top of the William Vale Hotel in Williamsburg. The Empire State Building and Midtown skyscrapers look grand from the 22nd-floor bar. But my top choice of scenery is always, always, always 1 World Trade Center. It’s a symbol of the city’s will to rebuild, which is important to all of us who mourn those who died in the 9/11 Twin Towers terrorist attack or because they got sick from rescue and recovery work. A great spot for an aerial view of 1 World Trade Center is the rooftop bar at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge on the shoreline side of Brooklyn Heights. This open-air watering hole at 60 Furman St. is part of mixed-use waterfront Pierhouse, which combines condos and a hotel. The bar opened in 2017. Its official name is Harriet’s Rooftop, if you’re wondering.

A necklace of lights appears on the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge at dusk. PIERHOUSE AND THE CATHEDRAL OF COMMERCE Up on the roof at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, it doesn’t matter if the sky’s not blue. The firmament was a pale white gray the day I went upstairs to toast the scenery. But the bar was packed with patrons anyway. And the views were terrific. Here’s a checklist of some of the fine sights you can see up there, starting with Brooklyn Bridge Park, which is right down below the hotel. The landscaping is green and gorgeous. From this height, it looks like a series of architectural drawings come to life. The 85-acre park is an outstanding place to stroll and take photos. If you haven’t been there recently, you should come to the waterfront a couple hours before you want to hit the bar. Anyway. When you’re up at Harriet’s Rooftop, look south and you will see the terraces on nearby Pierhouse condos. Some of the terraces have small plots planted with ornamental gardens or trees. Lady Liberty’s off in the distance across the waters of New York Harbor, a bit too far away to be photogenic but lovely anyway. Close by, lower Manhattan skyscrapers line up like sentinels. Various architectural icons keep company with 1 World Trade Center. One of them is the apartment building that star architect Frank Gehry designed, which is 870 feet tall. Its address is 8 Spruce St. It has an unusual facade that looks like it’s made of giant twisted ribbons.

Eye on REAL ESTATE

When you face this direction on 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge’s rooftop bar, you glimpse the framework of the famous Watchtower sign, whose letters have been removed. At random moments, boat traffic gets busy beneath the famous bridge. On the shoreline, people waiting in a long line to board the NYC Ferry look tiny as ants. At the foot of the bridge, on Fulton Ferry Landing Pier, the Marine Fireboat Station glows bright white as twilight gathers. The fireboat building, which was constructed in 1926, uses 1 Water St. as its address. The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory was formerly its tenant. But recently Brooklyn Bridge Park chose Ample Hills Creamery as the new concessionaire for the space. That’s an ice-cream shop, too, as dessert lovers know. Brooklyn Bridge Park picked Alex and Miles Pincus to operate a cafe and bar on the pier. In April, the Pincus brothers’ plan to construct a permanent pavilion on the pier for this purpose did not pass muster with the city Landmarks Preservation Commission. The pier is located in the Fulton Ferry Historic District, which is why the LPC has authority over the proposed construction.

Raise a toast to the skyline at your favorite Brooklyn rooftop bar Everybody up here on 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge’s roof is taking photos. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan — Continued from page 10INB — Behind the tower Gehry designed, the Cathedral of Commerce is partly visible. That’s what architectural-history lovers call the Woolworth Building.

A FAMOUS BRIDGE AND A FIREBOAT STATION

The rooftop bar affords a great view of the full span of the Brooklyn Bridge from one side of the East River to the other. The Roeblings’ landmarked marvel is the most widely recognized architectural icon associated with our borough.

A FAMOUS CLOCKTOWER

Behind Brooklyn Bridge, in the middle distance, Gairville’s most glamourous building stands tall. If you know what I’m talking about, you’re definitely conversant with the details of the DUMBO Historic District. A century ago, paper-box manufacturer and real estate investor Robert Gair owned so many factory buildings in DUMBO that people called the area Gairville. The signature building is 1 Main St., aka the DUMBO Clocktower. The landmarked building has one of the most photogenic penthouses in the city — a triplex apartment with an enormous glass clock face embedded in each of its four walls. In 2017, gallery owner/art dealer Lio Malca bought it for $15 million.

ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER

If you turn your back to the shoreline and walk to the farthest edge of the roof, you’ll see a building on the opposite side of the street that was the headquarters of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. On top of the building there’s empty framework where red electric letters 15 feet high used to spell out the word “Watchtower.” The sign was well-known. It was visible to drivers on the Brooklyn Bridge and folks on the shoreline in Manhattan. After the Jehovah’s Witnesses sold the property at 25-30 Columbia Heights a couple years ago, they removed the letters and put them in storage. Subsequently, the city Buildings Department decided the new owners of the property should not be allowed to put new letters onto the sign’s framework. This left a void in waterfront Brooklyn’s skyline. Last year the Board of Standards and Appeals ruled that the owners, Columbia Heights Associates, do have the right to put a new name onto the sign framework. The owners are in the process of turning the old Watchtower complex into a mixed-use campus with office and retail space and a cultural facility. The development is called Panorama. Up on the hotel’s roof, the scenery is tinged with melancholy half-light after the sun drops below the horizon. There are purplehued flood lights on the Brooklyn Bridge. Drink one more toast as the last light fades, a toast to fleeting spring and our stunning city, which will endure no matter what.

Nationwide Titles Plates . Registration ON THE SPOT PLATES Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from May 15, 1948 ON MAY 15, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Oslo, Norway, (U.P.) — Vidkun Quisling, the world’s most famous traitor, is cleaning the toilets of Oslo’s biggest prison, the United Press learned exclusively today. My informant, one of only six men who have seen the arch-traitor since he surrendered six days ago, said Quisling has been given the most menial tasks at the prison at Moellergarten 19. Nevertheless Quisling, 58 and fat, insists he is still the legal head of the Norwegian government. He complains constantly about his prison treatment. Two tough guards with tommy-guns stand over the puppet premier while he goes to work with a brush and a bucket of water.”  ON MAY 15, 1948, the Eagle reported, “Tel Aviv (U.P.) — Arab planes bombed Tel Aviv three times today and one Egyptian air force pilot was taken prisoner when his plane was forced down just north of the new Jewish capital. The Egyptian government in Cairo announced officially that Egyptian planes raided the newborn State of Israel in the forefront of an Arab attack from all sides, including one raid on a Jewish airdrome outside Tel Aviv … Egyptian troops driving into Palestine have ‘wiped out’ a Jewish settlement on the road to Beersheba, an official communique in Cairo said today … Jewish sources said direct Arab-Jewish negotiations for a truce in Jerusalem were started after Jews captured virtually all strongpoints abandoned by the British in the Holy City … Egyptian troops spearheaded the Arab assault, attempting an amphibious landing 21 miles south of Tel Aviv and crashing across the southern Palestine border at two points. Syrian and Lebanese troops roared down across the northern frontier several hours before the midnight deadline, riding into battle in 150 armored trucks.”

Annual Viking Fest headed back to Bay Ridge BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

B

e a Viking for a day. The Scandinavian East Coast Museum (SECM) will host its annual Viking Fest in Owl’s Head Park, 68th Street and Colonial Road, on Saturday, May 18, a day before the Norwegian Parade. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., attendees will enjoy typical Viking Day fanfare, such as music, dance, a scavenger hunt, games, rides, Scandinavian arts and crafts, and more. “We are having the Viking ship back so we are really happy about that,” said SECM President Victoria Hofmo. In addition, she told this paper, ”We are going to have two reenactment groups [The Society for Creative Anachronism and Historic Arms] and a scavenger hunt starting at 10 a.m.” There will also be a

traditional Norse ritual performed by the New York City Heathens which Hofmo said, “is really about including nature.” A new addition this year will be the Festooned Facial Hair Contest with prizes given to the people with the best decorated Viking style facial hair. One winner will be chosen from contestants with natural facial hair; the other will be chosen from those who compete with “artificial fuzz.” There’s a $5 fee for entering the competition. Music will be provided by Sean LeFleur, who Hofmo said will be “doing a medley including Scandinavian music, classics and contemporary songs — some really cool stuff.” One of the goals of the event is to teach those who stop by about Vikings and Scandinavian culture. “The idea is to find out more about the culture and history from the different reenactment

groups,” Hofmo said. At noon, the performance component, entitled Touched By the Vikings, will begin. It will include musical and dance performances from cultures that had a connection to the Vikings, and local artists will take part. Performers this year include Ellen Lindstrom on accordion, the Clann Eireann Pipers, the Donny Golden School of Irish Dance, Reel Celtic and Young Dancers in Repertory. Viking Fest has been going on for close to two decades, noted Hofmo. “People are all excited about the Vikings, no matter what their background,” she said. “Once you get people into that, I feel like you can extend the story and talk about their contributions to New York, as a cross-cultural connection to other cultures. The Vikings are a good example of really reaching out and integrating with different people.”

OPINION MAFALDA DIMANGO

I

am very happy for the DiMango family. The family matriarch, the late Mafalda DiMango, was honored by having the corner of 81st Street and 15th Avenue — where she raised her family and lived for most of her life — renamed in her memory. “Mafalda DiMango Way” is dedicated to a lady who was involved in countless activities and causes for more than 50 years. Our paths crossed on numerous occasions, but never more than through the Dyker Heights Civic Association, an organization that she chaired numerous times and on whose board she served for more years than I know. And, as much as the Dyker Heights Civic Association is what I remember best about Mafalda, for many it would be the community school

I

board and other school organizations in District 20 that she dedicated time and effort to over several decades. Some might also speak of the three years she oversaw the Census count for the federal government in our end of Brooklyn. I think you get the idea. Mafalda DiMango was part of a very select group of selfless individuals who are what make our communities better. Mafalda, rest, knowing of our continued gratitude for a job well done. Thanks! *** I have been traveling around a bit recently, speaking at Conservative Party dinners and events. This past week I made what I would consider a short trip to speak before an enthusiastic crowd of Conservatives in Nassau County.

Later in the week, I flew with Janet to Rochester, making my way to Sodus Point for the Wayne County Conservative Party dinner which I keynoted. The next night, I was at the head table for the Monroe Conservative Party dinner which had 450 people in attendance. Saturday, the Conservative Party held a press conference in Syracuse with party and elected officials in opposition to efforts to provide illegal immigrants with driver’s licenses. I led off the event and acted as emcee at the presser which provided a platform for Conservative Party officials as well as three elected county clerks, GOP/Conservative Senator Antonacci of Onondaga County and Assemblymember Manktelow of Wayne County. In all, five county clerks

spoke or provided statements. Upstate, for the most part, the county clerks are elected and among their responsibilities is to act as the local DMV. To a person, they believe issuing driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants will lead to voter fraud and security concerns. They spoke of the rule of law and their oaths of office.

TAKING CARE OF THE BILLS

n 1973, while the Watergate scandal was snowballing, President Nixon found himself embroiled in a controversy related to his tax returns. He ultimately released his previous four years’ of filings and an IRS audit determined that he owed nearly half a million dollars, which was about half of his entire net worth. With the exception of his successor Gerald Ford, for over 40 years every president and major party nominee released his or her tax returns. Until Donald Trump did not. The New York state legislature is currently considering a new law which would require the public release of the past five years’ state income tax returns for the president, vice president, both of New York's senators in Washington, governor,

lieutenant governor, comptroller and attorney general. At the state level, with Albany having seen 20 lawmakers convicted of crimes since 2010, allowing everyone the opportunity to see the most recent tax filings of those who hold the four highest statewide offices would build public trust and could provide a deterrent to cheating for those who might seek those positions. At the federal level, New York can do its part in trying to return us to what had become the custom of the electorate being able to see tax returns of those vying for the highest office in the land. When Nixon famously said, "People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook,” he was explaining why he was

COMMON SENSE The Conservative Party noted that a clear majority of New Yorkers oppose the effort and questioned why the Democrats in the legislature cannot respect their wishes. To that point, the Conservative Party has been running an online petition opposing state efforts which in just a few days garnered over a thousand signatures and shows of support. The petition can be found at the Conservative Party website CPNYS.org or via the party’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter accounts. *** While I was in Rochester, Janet and I had a few hours to sightsee. I would highly recommend dropping by

the Susan B. Anthony home. We all know the rudiments of her role in the suffrage movement, which she helped found and contributed immeasurably to, though she did not see it come to fruition inasmuch as she died about 14 years before the 19th Amendment codifying women’s right to vote was ratified. Not surprisingly, on so many levels she was amazing. The volunteer tour guides bring her to life in the house tour. Interestingly, the house, which also acted as her headquarters, is on a shady street in a quiet neighborhood with even the sidewalks being the original slate. All sorts of original items have been retained.

MATTER OF FACT BY JAY BROWN

releasing his filings. Since it has become clear that a candidate with something to hide may no longer honor this tradition, it is time our state does what it can to require by law some level of transparency.

Since it has become clear that a candidate with something to hide may no longer honor this tradition, it is time our state does what it can to require by law some level of transparency. Two other proposed bills that the state Senate has already passed could also have major implications for the White House. One would require state tax returns to be provided to congressional committees when requested as part

of an ongoing investigation, while another would clarify existing law so that members of the president’s administration or family could not avoid prosecution for state crimes by way of a presidential pardon. It is rare that our state lawmakers can make such an impact at the national level, but in an era of ignored subpoenas and refusals to comply with constitutionally-mandated congressional oversight, our state legislators should move forward without delay and play a role in ensuring that nobody is above the law in Washington. With respect to legislation affecting New York, there is a proposed bill that received

some national attention. Unfortunately, the reporting was completely erroneous and led to unwarranted criticisms of local elected officials. Right-wing media outlet, One America News, reported on May 9 that, “Every state Senate Democrat voted against a Republican bill that would have increased the penalties on anyone who attacks a first responder.” The fact is that bill S335 had days earlier passed through one committee with bipartisan support and now awaits review in the Judiciary Committee. Every state Senate Democrat could not have voted against it because it has yet to advance to the entire body for a vote. However, four Democratic committee members have voted in favor of advancing

the bill thus far. It’s unclear whether One America News purposefully misrepresented verifiable facts or if its false reporting was due to sheer incompetence, but the end result here in Brooklyn has been the propagation of fake news and the spread of baseless attacks on local lawmakers. Questionable media outlets like this often count on gullible people who will not verify the veracity of a report, knowing some will spread misinformation that they hope to be true. Our entire democratic system is based on an underpinning of trust and whether it is our elected representatives, our free press or ordinary citizens, we all play a part in maintaining the integrity of that foundation.

Focus on Bay Ridge By Charles F. Otey

BRCC launched city’s greatest volunteer neighborhood Community council still a force for good after 65 years of service

Those who are new to Bay Ridge and, indeed, many who have lived here for some time, may wonder why the windows of storefronts on Third and Fifth avenues suddenly come alive with interesting and charming works of art every fall in the run-up to Halloween. Are these portraits — so delicately and skillfully created on hundreds of merchants’ windows each year — part of a project from the Board of Education? Is there a local arts council that raises funds and organizes this volunteer effort, which encourages students to get out into their community and decorate it with their own unique creations? In this case, the typical new residents — let’s assume they are a couple with two children — came to Bay Ridge from Williamsburg, a community in dramatic transition. Until the early 2000s, Williamsburg was an older, rusting community; rentals were much cheaper than trendy places like SoHo, NoHo and NoNo. Since the later 1990s, these new New Yorkers have flocked by the thousands to northwestern Brooklyn, which has become the undeclared millennial capital of New York City. But, alas, many — perhaps even thousands

— are now being priced out of charming Williamsburg lofts and have joined the march south; some to rent or buy in Bay Ridge, where we have the aforementioned display of youthful exuberance and art each fall.

We lost bridge battle, but gained a community

The art contest, it should be noted, is held each year thanks to the efforts of the Bay Ridge Community Council. So, when and why did the BRCC’s Annual Window Art Painting Contest start? The window painting originated back in 1954 as an original project of the council, which was founded by brothers Vincent and Walter Kassenbrock. The council, which at one point included more than 100 umbrella organizations on its membership rolls, itself came about as a result of protest meetings held to fight off Robert Moses’ plans to take out 2,000 Bay Ridge dwellings to make way for his approach to the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge. Bay Ridge lost the battle, but it gained an activist, volunteer tradition that still prevails today despite the temptations of the internet, where many believe they can be of service by

staying home tickling the keys (often just their egos) instead of getting up and out to an important civic meeting. The painting contest was such a great idea — initially launched in an effort to cut down on Halloween pranksters whose ugly defacing graffiti marred many urban communities — that it’s been held every year

since. An even greater idea, though, was the creation of the Bay Ridge Community Council, which was the center of civic and even other powers from 1964 until the creation of community planning boards some 25 years or so later. The schools have joined in enthusiastically and still do so. The contest is one of many items that adorned the agenda for the BRCC’s Executive Board meeting held on May 14. Newcomers may and should ask: How is it possible that a window painting contest held in an urban neighborhood that requires loads of organization and volunteer work to succeed each and every year continues to beautifully bedeck our local store windows? Well, the fact that the BRCC is still meeting and functioning is a credit to President Ralph Succar, Executive Secretary Bob Kassenbrock, Barbara Vellucci, Mary Ann Walsh and each and every other person on the May 14 agenda. As easily seen, the BRCC continues to hold events like its youth-oriented photography contest and lends vital backing to the Kassenbrock Brothers Memorial Scholarship Fund, which has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to deserving students. In addition, organizations like the Merchants of Third Avenue, led by President Bob Howe, provide active support through its leaders, like Brian Chin, who has been designated a coholder of the BRCC Civic Award along with Marianne Nicolosi of the Bay Ridge Center. The council’s biggest public event will take place June 4 when its annual dinner dance is held at the Rex Manor. Dress code is optional (someone may even show up in a Bermuda shorts tuxedo!)

Two patrolmen honored with plaques at 72nd Precinct decades after making the ultimate sacrifice BY JAIME DEJESUS JDEJESUS@BROOKLYNREPORTER. COM

emembering fallen heroes, a century later. On Tuesday, May 7, the 72nd Precinct dedicated plaques in the station house, 830 Fourth Avenue, in memory of two police officers who served the area and died in the line of duty in the early years of the 20th century. The event was attended by descendants of the fallen heroes — Patrolmen Arthur Loewe, who was killed in July 1922, and James Mangan, who died in October 1910 — as well as of the people they died protecting. Mangan — who was appointed to the Police Department in 1893 and assigned to the 144th Precinct, which is the current 72nd Precinct — died while helping people escape a burning building, explained retired Police Officer Richard Lejman, who organized the ceremony along with members of the 72nd Precinct Community Council. “At about 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 26, 1910, [Mangan] discovered a fire in a three-story building with a stationery store on the ground floor,” Lejman said. “Smoke was coming out of the doorway of the store and hallway. After sounding the alarm, he entered the building and started to guide members of the Schnitzler family to safety.” Another patrolman helped Mangan rescue

Plaques honoring Patrolman Arthur Loewe and Patrolman James Mangan, both of whom died in the line of duty, were unveiled at the 72nd Precinct on May 7. the inhabitants via the fire escape. However, Mangan went back into the burning building after he was told that there were still children inside. “He found a three-year-old in the middle of the bedroom, took him and brought him outside,” Lejman recounted. Then, “nearing exhaustion from the smoke and the heat, [Mangan] rushed back into the building and found a two-year-old girl unconscious in her crib.” Mangan brought her to the stairs, where he leaned over and shouted for help. However, before firefighters could reach him, he was overcome by the smoke and fell over the railing, the

child still in his arms. “He landed on the floor below, striking his head in the process, yet still holding onto Dorothy,” Lejman said. “He landed on his back, using his body to protect her. She was uninjured and was revived later.” Mangan was taken to what was then Methodist Hospital, where he died. “A hundred and one years ago, Officer James Mangan saved my great aunt and her older brother from an apartment fire,” said Jeanette Engert, the great niece of the girl Mangan saved. “If not for Officer Mangan, my family as we know it would not exist today.” As for Loewe, Lejman

said he died of wounds sustained when he confronted a group of armed burglars who were breaking into a home on Eighth Street near Second Avenue. Loewe learned of the intrusion, Lejman said, “When he was approached by Marie Kennedy who [had] noticed two men scaling her backyard fence.” Loewe returned to the home with Kennedy to find four men in the backyard. “He ordered them to put their hands up,” said Lejman. “Three did, but one put up his left hand and kept his right hand at his side. When he was told a second time to put up his hand, the man fired a gun as he

raised it. Patrolman Loewe returned fire and a second man started shooting at him. The remaining two men then shot at him. Some 30 shots were fired and Loewe was hit four times.” Loewe still managed to reload his revolver and shoot at the men. He died later that night in the hospital. “We did not know a lot about my uncle’s history,” said Maria Delaney, Loewe’s grand niece. “I’m grateful to Uncle Arthur for his bravery and thankful to this precinct for keeping us safe. Thank you to the 72nd Precinct. We will be forever grateful and you will see us from time to time coming

in to admire the plaque and continue the legacy.” “Here you get the feeling of being part of a larger community for the greater good,” added Rosemary Bakker, who is also Loewe’s grand niece. “Saying my uncle was a part of this makes me feel a sense of service instead of just the tragedy.” “When you become a police officer, you just don’t get a job, you gain the entire NYPD as your family,” said Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez, the precinct’s commanding officer. “It is important that we dedicate these plaques to the patrolmen not only to remind us of their heroism but to let the families know we will never forget.”
