Criminal justice reform turns to list of problem officers By Michael Casey | The Associated Press During the 22 years he spent in prison after being convicted of killing a Boston police detective, Sean Ellis believed there was something suspicious about the officers who led the murder investigation. He just couldn’t prove it. It would take years of digging and scores of public information requests from his attorneys to uncover evidence that several officers investigating the 1993 murder case were involved in criminal activity — information that wasn’t shared with the defense. A Superior Court judge in 2015 ordered a new trial for Ellis and his murder charges were later dismissed. Defense attorneys have long run up against a brick wall when trying to discover whether an officer has credibility issues that could set their client free. But the case of Ellis and more recently, Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, born Robert Williams, is fueling calls among civil liberty groups and reformminded district attorneys to make the system more transparent. It is part of a larger call to address criminal justice reform at a time of growing anger over police shootings and wrongful convictions often involving African-Americans. Five years after protests that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, over the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, activists have been pushing prosecutors to create lists of problem police officers, limit the use of the officers on them and review cases these officers worked to determine whether cases should be dropped or if defendants should be exonerated. “In addition to charges, this is the other thing that prosecutors can be doing — making it very hard for officers to engage in the kind of conduct that should lead to them being fired,” said Scott Roberts, the senior director of criminal justice campaigns for Color of Change, an online racial justice organization, which is calling for prosecutors nationwide to

create lists. The Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors have a constitutional responsibility to share information favorable to the defense, including law enforcement officers with credibility issues. It is often called the Brady rule. Wrongdoings that can land an officer on a so-called Brady list or database include lying on a police report, excessive force, bigoted comments or crimes such as drunken driving or domestic violence. Some lists also include officers under investigation, though they could be removed if the allegation is dismissed. Others have expanded the list to include lab technicians and others who might testify on the government’s behalf. With no clear guidance from the courts on how that information should be shared, critics have chided prosecutors for failing to keep track of problem officers and going out of their way to keep information from the defense — either by failing to disclose the details about the officer, choosing not to put the officer on the stand or dropping a case altogether. Criminal justice advocates said the Brady rule violations have long been a problem and continue to pose a risk to innocent defendants. “It’s a serious issue,” said Samuel Gross, the founder and senior editor of National Registry of Exonerations which has tracked 2,472 exonerations, mostly due to Brady violations. “We know from repeated scandals that there are a substantial number of officers who have engaged in concerted patterns of abuse and done dreadful things.” In July, a Pennsylvania appeals court overturned Mill’s decade-old conviction on a drug and gun case over questions about the arresting officer’s credibility. Mill pleaded guilty this week to a misdemeanor gun charge in a deal that ends the legal limbo surrounding the 2007 arrest. Several district attorneys have made these lists or data-

bases central to their agendas while lawsuits in several states call for the list to be public. In Philadelphia, District Attorney Larry Krasner, who was a defense attorney for 25 years, said he didn’t know a list existed when he took office. Krasner said there was no effort in the past to share the list of names — filed away under the name Damaged Goods — with defense attorneys. Krasner took over a list with less than 100 officers and created a larger database in which automatic notifications go out when a case involves a problem officer. The list could be expanded to include officers accused of making racist and violent social media posts. Krasner doesn’t think anyone in the data base should be on the force, but he’s limited to controlling their participation in cases. “It is a position of public trust and people who are on that force may be called as witnesses in criminal matters,” he said. “It simply doesn’t make sense for the public to fund people who

are incapable of doing the work.” St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner formalized an “exclusion list” with 58 names including nearly two dozen officers found to have written racist social media posts. Her office has also dismissed about 100 cases involving officers with credibility issues and ruled officers on the list may not be allowed to testify at trials or submit a case to her office. “People want fairness and justice for all,” Gardner said. “No one wants to pick and choose when an officer decides to be credible. What is at stake is the whole criminal justice system.” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg, which covers Houston, has formalized a system for its disclosure database that now includes 1,593 names going back to the 1980s — and allows a judge to decide if disclosure is necessary. Ogg’s office has dismissed 27 cases and is reviewing 1,400 other convictions after credibility issues emerged regarding one of the officers in a deadly drug raid. Prosecutors say the probe has grown to 14,000 cases. “Every witness’s bias and credibility can be tested and police officers are no exception,” she said. “The idea is that the law is applied equally to everyone.” Police unions have responded to the lists with lawsuits and lobbying to prevent the release of the names or limit their use by prosecutors. “It’s unfair and improper to arbitrarily add officers to this list without some fair and balanced protocol,” John McNesby, president of the Philadelphia police union, said in a statement. “It’s damaging to officers’ reputations and livelihood.” Many state laws prevent the data from being made public because it involves officers’ personal information. Some databases also include unredacted criminal investigative material that is not subject to public information laws. Lawsuits demanding the list be made public have been filed in New York and New Hampshire.

“Defendants have no idea whether prosecutors are making disclosure they need. Defendants have no idea whether police chiefs are sending the right names over to prosecutors,” said Gilles Bissonnette, the state legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union. Harris County and St. Louis have refused to release the names as does Philadelphia. But advocates for publicizing the police data have scored several legal victories of late. A court in Philadelphia ordered Krasner last year to turn over the names from the previous list to an association of public defenders. And in New Hampshire, the ACLU and several media outlets successfully sued the state to have the list of 260 officers released. The state’s Attorney General’s Office has appealed the ruling to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. The California Supreme Court this week ruled that a suspect’s right to a fair trial outweighs the privacy rights of officers who might have a history of bad behavior. Justices rejected a lower court ruling that barred the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department from giving prosecutors the names of deputies accused of improper conduct.

For Ellis, the debate over these lists comes too late. Suffolk County prosecutors didn’t keep a list of officers’ names when Ellis was convicted in the killing of detective John Mulligan. It was created in 2013. Ellis said he believes he wouldn’t have gone on trial if his defense team had known about the officers, several of whom pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy, civil rights and tax violations. Judge Carol Ball concluded that Ellis’ arrest was a rush to judgment based on an inadequate police investigation. “I knew that this wasn’t right because I knew I didn’t do what I was accused of,” said Ellis, 45, who was sentenced to life after two mistrials. He might have gone to college or been able to attend his father’s funeral. He would’ve been with his mother as she battled cancer. Instead, he was denied a request to go to his dad’s funeral. He now lives with his mom and sister in Massachusetts and works as an administrative assistant earning $15 per hour. “It’s like I lost my life,” Ellis said. “I went in as a teenager and here I am getting out as a 41-yearold. I don’t believe what happened to me happens in a vacuum. I believe it’s common- place. It’s the way the system works.” Associated Press writer Jake Bleiberg contributed to this report.

How you can help victims of Hurricane Dorian By Mary Frost The PHOENIX

Hurricane Dorian has devastated portions of the Northern Bahaman islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama. Communications are down and the extent of damages has not yet been realized, but satellite images show much of Grand Bahama is flooded, with homes, businesses and the main airport under sea water. The slow-moving storm is now headed north, and is expected to brush the coast of Florida on its way up the coast toward North Carolina. Millions of people could be impacted by wind, rain and a high storm surge, even if the storm doesn’t make direct landfall. What can Brooklynites do to help? Here are some organizations rushing to assist those in need.

News From Your Neighborhood WILLIAMSBURG STREET DANGEROUS FOR DRIVERS

WILLIAMSBURG — Driving down South Fifth Street has become dangerous because painted street markers are missing, according to CBSNewYork. A parked car lane is in the middle of the street, with bikes on one side and car traffic on the other. At least one confused driver was about to line up behind the parked cars until he realized that they were stationary. A spokesperson for the city Department of Transportation said that crews will be painting markings on the street this month, weather permitting. 

CONSTRUCTION PROJECT FLOODS SLOPE ROWHOUSES

PARK SLOPE — A massive city construction project has resulted in the routine flooding of several Park Slope brownstones, according to the Brooklyn Paper. “People have had anywhere from 2 to 16 inches of sewer water and stormwater in their homes,” Michael Saunders, who lives near Sixth Avenue and St. Johns Place, told the Brooklyn Paper. “It’s cost me thousands of dollars to deal with the damage.” The project requires workers to dig a massive trench along Sixth Avenue between Union Street and Park Place in an effort to replace underground water mains and install sewers, catch basins, and manholes. 

LAWSUIT: RED-LIGHT CAMERAS ARE ILLEGAL

CITYWIDE — A Brooklyn man is suing the city Department of Transportation, claiming that red-light cameras are illegal, according to the New York Post. The plaintiff, whose name is Monroe Street, filed his lawsuit in Manhattan Supreme Court on Thursday after he was issued a $50 fine for going through a red light in Brooklyn. He claims his ticket’s accompanying “Technician’s Certificate,” which is designed to ensure that a worker double-checked the red-light camera, is illegal because it wasn’t notarized. Street’s lawsuit wants any red-light camera tickets issued to drivers since August 2013 to be voided, since most of them haven’t been notarized. 

CITY AGENCY COULD BUY EX-CATHOLIC SCHOOL SITE

KENSINGTON — Brooklyn Catholic leaders are in the process of demolishing a rundown former school building on Fort Hamilton Parkway between 40th and 41st streets and are also looking to sell the site, according to the Brooklyn Paper. When asked whether they were in the process of purchasing the property, a spokesperson for the city’s School Construction Authority suggested that they are. “We are very early in the process,” said spokesperson Kevin Ortiz. “The [School Construction Authority] is always looking at diocese buildings as viable locations for new public school space,” Ortiz added. The building was formerly occupied by St. Catherine of Alexandria School, which the diocese closed in 2005 due to declining enrollment. 

FORMER REPUBLICAN POL MAY HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY

BAY RIDGE — Former Republican State Sen. Marty Golden is considering a run against Democratic State Sen. Andrew Gounardes, according to Kings County Politics. Gounardes lost to Golden in the 2012 Senate race but defeated him last year by a little more than 1,000 votes. Gounardes’ win was part of the “Blue Wave” that also enabled Democrat U.S Rep. Max Rose (Southern Brooklyn-Staten Island) to defeat Republican incumbent U.S. Rep. Dan Donovan, Kings County Politics said. State Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kassar, Golden’s former chief of staff, said, “Marty has not made a decision yet. We’ve been taking to him, and he’s not sure yet, as he has a very good job with the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens.” 

STREET COVERED WITH RAW CHICKEN PARTS

BOERUM HILL — A stretch of Bond Street in Boerum Hill was covered with raw chicken parts last Friday morning, according to The New York Times. “Every car and truck that pushed through the scattered parts unleashed a series of pops, snaps and cracks,” the Times reported. The parts were mainly thighs and wings, and there may have been some turkey parts as well, onlookers said. Neighborhood residents believed the parts fell off a truck, as there are several butchers nearby. 

SUMMER GUEST HOUSES ON GOVERNORS ISLAND

GOVERNORS ISLAND — Governors Island now has “outlook shelters,” or luxurious trailer-type structures where guests can stay overnight, according to Gothamist. They are now open for business and will remain until Oct. 31, when Governors Island closes for the season. Each unit has landscaped decks, 10-foot ceilings, whitewashed pine walls and a “luxurious soaking tub.” You also get a private library and “luxury

ANOTHER ANTI-HASIDIC ATTACK IN CROWN HEIGHTS

BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A man has been arrested after police said he mowed down a cyclist in Bedford-Stuyvesant, according to NY1 News. Police said Korey Johnson, who is facing murder and manslaughter charges, saw the cyclist trying to break into his car on Marcus Garvey Boulevard. Johnson apparently confronted the man, and it quickly turned physical. Police say the cyclist hit a woman with a screwdriver, then tried to get away on his bike. Johnson get into his car, then followed the cyclist. The victim suffered severe head trauma and was pronounced dead at the scene, said NY1. 

The victim told police he was serving customers at the chain’s location on Jay Street near Myrtle Avenue when the suspect threatened to hit him in the face in a bid to steal the coffee cup. Police charged the man with third-degree robbery, third-degree menacing and petit larceny.  CROWN HEIGHTS — A group of teens threw ice at a truck stopped a traffic light in Crown Heights on Thursday evening, according to PIX11. A 34-year-old Hasidic man was in the truck when it was stopped at Prospect Place and Brooklyn Avenue and was hit in the head by the ice. After the incident, he saw a group of teens running away from the scene. Police are investigating the incident as a bias attack. 

ARCHITECTS’ BOAT TOUR EYES WATERFRONT

CITYWIDE — For 10 years, the American Institute of Architects’ New York Chapter has been sponsoring a boat tour around the city for an architectural view of skyscrapers, bridges, infrastructure and more, according to NY1. The tour, led by architect Arthur Platt, leaves from Chelsea Piers, moves along the West Side, then turns around for a look at the changing waterfronts of Brooklyn and Queens. “One of the main themes at the forefront has been, how do you build an urban waterfront in an age of rising sea levels and frequent storm events,” Platt told NY1. 

MAN PUNCHES TRAIN CONDUCTOR

DOWNTOWN BROOKYN — A man asked a subway train conductor for directions, then punched her when she told him he was on the wrong platform, according to Patch. The man approached the conductor’s window as the southbound D train pulled into the DeKalb Avenue station, police said. After the man became upset and punched her through the window, he flicked his lit cigarette at her and ran away, police said. 

NOT A GOOD WAY TO PLAY POST OFFICE

EAST FLATBUSH — One person has been injured after a car slammed into a post office on East 94th Street and Church Avenue, according to CBSNewYork. The incident happened on Saturday afternoon. Witnesses looked on as the vehicle crashed through the East Flatbush post office’s metal security gate. There was no word on what caused the accident. 

SYNAGOGUE ATTACK IN FLATBUSH

FLATBUSH — An Orthodox Jewish man was verbally and physically attacked in front of a synagogue in Flatbush, according to the Forward. In the attack, which took place on the Sabbath, two men who may have been drunk hit the Jewish man in the face with a belt and yelled anti-Jewish racial slurs. The victim told police that he had not spoken to the men before the attack. The NYPD is treated the incident as a hate crime. 

EX-CON THREATENS TO KILL HIS EX-WIFE

BOROUGHWIDE — Scott Smith, a Brooklyn ex-con who was out on parole last month after half a decade in a Missouri prison, said during an Aug. 3 phone call that he still wanted to kill his wife, and he’d “happily live in a cell and await the needle” after killing her, according to the New York Daily News. He even said he’d kill her in front of her 5-year-old daughter. “I just want to tell you, you’re about to die,” said the defendant. He also texted his former prosecutor that he’d kill the victim from the 2014 federal case, the Daily News said. “Five years, I’ve been waiting for what’s about to happen. I’ve fantasized about it every night.” 

CO-OP FOR SALE IN 1940 B’KLYN COLLEGE-AREA BLD’G

FLATBUSH — A one-bedroom co-op in a 1940 elevator building in Flatbush near Brooklyn College is currently being offered for $329,000, according to Brownstoner. The building at 2601 Glenwood Road, says Brownstoner, “features characteristic period elements of preview apartments, such as parquet floors, shelves in a niche, arched doorways and coved ceilings. The building was built by Abraham Fox, a pioneer Brooklyn builder, and his son Milton. It was originally called the Rutledge and featured a Colonial-style entranceway, which has since been covered up. 

South Brooklyn to host multiple 9/11 memorial events BY VICTOR PORCELLI EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

On September 11, 2001, when terrorists hijacked commercial jetliners and flew them into the World Trade Center, Brooklyn residents were among uniformed service member, first responders and financial sector victims. Now, 18 years after the horrific attack, Brooklyn residents will hold a host of memorials for those who died on that terrible day. At 10 p.m. on Friday Sept. 6, the U.S. Army Garrison at Fort Hamilton will hold its annual 9/11 Commemorative Memorial Ceremony. Fort Hamilton is the only active military base in New York City. Its ceremony often includes a moment of silence and a bugle performance of “Retreat.” The Night Before Candlelight Ceremony will take place at MCU Park’s Wall of Remembrance at 7 p.m. on Sept. 10. The wall is engraved with images of 346 firefighters, 37 Port Authority officers, 23 New York City police officers, three New York State officers, one member of the New York Fire Patrol and one rescue dog. This year, the ceremony will use electric candles and will have Fire Department chaplains present. “It’s hard to realize that it’s been 18 years since 9/11,” Sol Moglen, honorary deputy chief with the FDNY and founder of the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance, told this paper. “This is the 18th anniversary, and a

lot of the families don’t feel comfortable going down to Ground Zero because it’s a very sad place.

Andrew Gounardes will be continuing the tradition of his predecessor, Marty Golden, by holding two vigils: one in Marine Park and one in Bay Ridge.

Red Hook’s S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse has been torn down

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

The big hunk of junk at the center of the picture is the remains of the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse’s roof.

The building is ‘a casualty of a system that does not work,’ an activist says. By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

I saw the death blow that brought down the Bowne building. It happened on Labor Day — Monday, Sept. 2, 2019. Construction workers all over America had the day off. But a demolition crew was on the job at the Red Hook property where entrepreneur Samuel Winter Bowne built a four-story brick grain storehouse for Gowanus Canal commerce in 1886. At 10:23 a.m., an excavator with a rope attached to it backed over debris-strewn ground — and with a single yank, tore the roof right off the historic S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse at 595 Smith St. Mighty timbers that had held up the roof since Grover Cleveland was President snapped like toothpicks.

A long, flat panel of roofing material, which was ribbed with a row of wood beams, twisted as it plummeted earthwards. A torrent of brown dust cascaded to the ground.

At 10:40 a.m., when I left my sidewalk vigil for the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse, the excavator was using a pair of giant jaws to pick up broken bits of the building and toss them into a pile.

‘PROJECT MAYHEM’

RUBBLE IN THE RAIN

Workers at the site cheered so loudly that I heard them on the other side of the Gowanus Canal, where I stood on the sidewalk of the Hamilton Avenue Bridge as noisy traffic rushed by. The S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse, which belongs to the Chetrit Group, is the Gowanus Canal-side industrial building that preservation advocates and elected officials tried to save from demolition. The roof the workers ripped off was the last thing that held together what remained of the north half of the building.

An excavator is hard at work at the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse even as rain falls on Labor Day afternoon. By early morning on Labor Day, a large portion of the brick wall on the side of the building facing the Gowanus Canal had already been knocked down. An interior wall that had divided the north and south sides of the grain storehouse was exposed to the open air. When I stood on the sidewalk on Smith Street, I could see graffiti murals on it. One of them was labeled “Project Mayhem” in big letters. The demolition crew was working although the city Buildings Department had issued a Partial Stop Work Order for the property on Aug. 29. On Monday, I asked agency spokesperson Andrew Rudansky if what they were doing was legal under the order’s provisions. He said the order solely banned “scaffold work.”

Buildings Department inspectors who checked up on the crew at 595 Smith St. early Monday afternoon “determined that no scaffold work was ongoing, and the active demolition work did not violate the Partial Stop Work Order,” Rudansky told me. A few days earlier, the demolition crew had obliterated the south half of the building. That’s the part of the historic property where a two-alarm fire was “deliberately set” — those are the words of FDNY spokesperson Jim Long — in June 2018. As a Bureau of Fire Investigation report obtained by City Councilmember Carlos Menchaca says, on the night of that fire, a nearby hydrant that didn’t work properly had a brick and screws stuffed inside it.

After I left the doomed building, it rained a lot. When a huge mid-afternoon downpour subsided somewhat, I returned to the Bowne building and discovered the workers had done lots more demolition in my absence. The very northernmost corner of the structure was still standing. Just about everything else was gone, gone, gone, reduced to mammoth mounds of rubble in the rain. As thunder cracked in the distance and light rain fell, workers walked on wet piles

of lumber. They don’t appear very clearly in my photos, but they were easy for me to see because they were wearing bright yellow vests. The rain stopped for a few minutes, and the excavator got to work, tossing around torn-up timbers once again. It started raining lightly, but the machine kept right on rumbling.

‘SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE PERMITTING PROCESS’ In 2018, before there was a fire at the Bowne building, the Gowanus Landmarking Coalition asked the Landmarks Preservation Commission to put the property on its calendar to consider designating it as a landmark. That didn’t happen.

Eye on REAL ESTATE

Red Hook’s S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse has been torn down In the afternoon on Labor Day, everything but the north corner of the Bowne building has been reduced to rubble. — Continued from page 12INB — “The Bowne Storehouse is the Empire State Building of the Gowanus Canal,” Simeon Bankoff, the executive director of the Historic Districts Council, told me in July. It was the waterway’s most visible 19th century industrial building. The Chetrit Group didn’t respond to a request for comment about what it plans to construct on the Bowne building site. Earlier this year, Menchaca revealed that during his first term as councilmember, the developer showed him a design with residential towers. In the wake of the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse’s demise, preservationists and community activists think city regulations governing demolition permits should be changed — in particular, permits for buildings with ongoing fire investigations.

INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

“Something is wrong with the permitting process,” Bankoff said. “On the one hand, you have the city recognizing that this is a worthy historic resource which has been damaged under suspicious circumstances; on the other, permits are issued to demolish the building and once issued, trump everything else,” he explained.

‘THE LAW NEEDS TO BE CHANGED TO STOP BAD ACTORS’ “If there is an ongoing fire and/or police investigation of a site, the Buildings Department needs to bar issuance of demolition permits for the site until such time as the investigation has been completed,” Gowanus Landmarking Coalition member Brad Vogel said. Artist Ken Rush shows me his painting needs to be an automatic red of the S.W. Bowne Grain Storehouse flag“This in the Department of Buildings’ sysafter a June 2018 fire at the building. tem — it should not be subject to the whim of the investigating agency as to whether it decides to inform DOB of the investigation or not,” he added. “The historic Bowne Storehouse is a casualty of a system that does not work and an unethical developer who knew where all the cracks in the system are and who committed lots of violations along the way,” said Carolina Salguero, founder and president of PortSide NewYork, which operates a museum and floating cultural center on the Mary A. Whalen tanker.

The inside of the Bowne building’s northernmost wall is visible to passersby on Labor Day afternoon.

Plenty of fun in the rain and the sun By Paul Frangipane, Jimin Kim and Mark Davis

INBrooklyn photo by Mark Davis

Monday was Labor Day, which means the West Indian Day Parade and preceding J’Ouvert celebration turned the neighborhood of Crown Heights into a massive celebration of Caribbean culture. The combined events drew thousands of spectators as the neighborhood was decorated with people dressed in colorful costumes and traditional attire. J’Ouvert, the pre-dawn observance that ramps up to the West Indian Day Parade, is celebrated with steel pan drumming, dancing and reveling (which includes motor oil, paint and baby powder body painting). The name means daybreak, but starting last year and continuing this year, the celebration began at 6 a.m. as a way to help curb violence by pushing the beginning of the parade into the morning light. Several thousand police officers also accompanied participants as they made their way across Empire Boulevard and down Nostrand Avenue. The West Indian Day Parade, which has been held in Crown Heights since 1969, was full of traditional Caribbean head dresses, dancing and flags. The parade kicked off at Ralph Avenue and made its way across Eastern Parkway to Grand Army Plaza.

BACK TO SCHOOL Reaching-Out gives kids backpacks to start school year in style BY PAULA KATINAS PAULA@BROOKLYNEAGLE.COM

Hundreds of children will be ready when school opens on Sept. 5, thanks to Reaching-Out Community Services Inc., which distributed free backpacks and school supplies at a late summer event outside its Bensonhurst headquarters on Thursday morning. Tom Neve, founder and

executive director of Reaching-Out, a non-profit organization that assists low-income residents, said more than 700 families signed up for the backto-school event. “It went wonderfully,” Neve told this paper. Neve and an army of volunteers handed out backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons and other school supplies to the happy and eager kids. Tents

were set up on the sidewalk outside Reaching-Out’s offices at 7708 New Utrecht Ave. and children and their parents patiently lined up to have the opportunity to stop at each booth to collect

school supplies they needed. Reaching-Out, which Neve, a retired New York City sanitation worker, founded more than 25 years ago, operates a

food pantry for underprivileged families and Neve said he sees the back-to-school backpack giveaway as an extension of the organization’s mission. “We feed the body, so we think it’s important to feed the mind,” he said. “It’s another way we like to give back to the community.” Reaching-Out conducts a back-to-school drive every year. Neve credited the event’s sponsors and volunteers with its success.

The volunteers who helped Neve hand out the school supplies included several members of Midwood High School’s Key Club. The sponsors who donated funds to help Reaching-Out purchase hundreds of backpacks and school supplies included the Verrazano Rotary Club, Ben-Bay Kiwanis Club, Dime Community Bank, Bensonhurst Center for Health and Rehabilitation and J.L. HVac Inc. Councilmember Justin Brannan, a Democrat representing Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and parts of Bensonhurst, secured city funding to help Neve with the event. “These are the people who

NYU Langone preps students with supplies, vaccines in back-to-school event BY VICTOR PORCELLI EDITORIAL@ BROOKLYNREPORTER.COM

Sunset Park residents received free school supplies, dental screenings and face paintings from NYU Langone Health at a back-to-school event on Wednesday. At Martin Luther Playground, right across from NYU Langone Hospital–Brooklyn, hundreds of families flocked to receive everything they need before the school year starts. The event was timed to occur during National Health Center Week, which celebrates federally qualified health centers across the country. With around 60 sites in New York City, NYU Langone’s Family Health Centers serve most of southwest Brooklyn. The centers run more than 40 school-based programs and eight primary care sites, according to Executive

Director of the centers Larry McReynolds. With the mission of increasing access to care in marginalized or hard-to-reach populations, the centers partnered with Empire BlueCross BlueShield HealthPlus and a variety of community programs on Wednesday. More than 1,600 backpacks filled with pens, pencils, a notebook, a folder and more were handed out. Dental screenings, a tooth-brushing presentation and vaccinations were also provided by the health center. “We want to make sure that kids are ready to go back to school physically, mentally, financially and also have the supplies to be successful when the new school year starts,” McReynolds told this newspaper. McReynolds said that National Health Center Week is held purposefully around the

same time as kids get ready to head back to school because children are required to complete physicals anyway at the beginning of the school year. Cynthia Felix, a board member of the Family Health Centers at NYU Langone, said that she feels the timing couldn’t be better. “It’s a great week to do it because a lot of parents are anxious about back-to-school and how to pay for their supplies,” Felix told the Brooklyn Reporter. “This gives them the opportunity to get everything done before school begins and they don’t have that anxiety. Their kids go back to school confident that they have their supplies and the parents go back to school confident that their kids are healthy and ready to conquer school.” This year, in particular, there have been policy changes that may affect the communities the centers serve, McReynolds

He cited cuts to Medicaid, immigration policies and the recent removal of the religious exemption for vaccinations. He said that the back-toschool event was meant not only to inform community

Amy Cunningham.

Writing a condolence letter: Do’s and don’ts with Amy Cunningham It’s difficult to know what to say when someone close to you has lost a loved one. The best intentioned of us get caught up in finding the right words, leaving that message unwritten and unsent. But it’s the act of sending that’s important, suggests licensed funeral director and death educator Amy Cunningham, stressing, “Take excellence off your list of objectives.” On March 30 of this year, Cunningham led a step-by-step guide to the Art of the Condolence Letter in the Green-Wood Cemetery’s Modern Chapel. Drawing on letters written by some of history’s greatest luminaries, Cunningham encouraged a frank discussion on the lost art, delving deeply into conversations on grief, loss and, ultimately, the human experience.

The writing of a condolence letter, Cunningham emphasizes, is about practice, not perfection. She urges one to consider it as a meditative exercise rather than focusing on the final result. “Condolence notes are in essence always failures, but that’s okay,” she says. “The act of writing them is the point. The act of comforting is secondary.” Wondering where to begin? Cunningham has a few pointers. She recommends a letter sent by mail, even better if it’s handwritten. She stresses that it’s the personal touch that makes all the difference. (Cunningham presented her personal writing kit during the program, inspired by Victorian stationery boxes, to illustrate this point.) Let them know you are there and thinking of them. Share a memory or story. She

also pointed out a few common blunders to avoid. Say “died,” not “passed away.” Don’t say, “I know how you feel.” You may not have the words of Emily Dickinson or Ernest Hemingway, but you’re forging human connection, and that’s what really matters. Lastly, Cunningham stresses that it’s not only about the recipient. It is also a deeply personal experience for the writer, who in the act of writing is forced to reflect upon his or her own experience and understanding of life and death. This discussion, and other death education programming, including the Death Café, hosted by Cunningham at GreenWood since 2017, are just some of the ways that Green-Wood continues to engage its audiences in conversations on death and dying in the 21st century.

Keep sharing. Keep loving. Keep living. Here’s the essential truth about hospice: it’s more about living, than dying. In fact, studies show that patients who receive hospice care actually live longer than those who do not. MJHS Hospice provides the clinical, emotional and spiritual support that patients and their families need to help make the most of the precious time they have together, so they can relive old memories, share stories and keep on laughing. To learn how MJHS Hospice can help you or a loved one, call 855-388-5257 or visit mjhshospice.org.

Why wills matter Everyone needs and should have a will. A will is a legal declaration of how a person wishes his or her possessions to be disposed of after death. Wills make sure that the antique jewelry which belonged to a beloved grandmother will be passed on to a daughter or that college will be possible for a grandson or that one’s favorite charity will receive funds to continue its good work. If you die without a will, your possessions and property will be distributed only among your family members; perhaps not exactly the way you want. New York State law will make these determinations – not you. No charities or friends would benefit. Many other legal complications may arise after a person dies “intestate” or without a will. Some of them can be costly and lead to an unnecessary tax burden on your estate or family. Many people believe that a will is only necessary when there is a significant amount of money, valuables and property to be distributed after death to loved ones, children, families, friends and charities. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even a person with a limited amount of money or property should have a will. How does one go about making a will? The first thing to do is to list all your assets and then decide whom you want to share these assets. You will also need to think about a “personal representative” or “executor” who will carry out the provisions of your will. Most experts caution against drafting your own will without using professional legal advice. Even though the “will” forms available on the internet or at an office supply store look

impressive, they may omit an essential requirement. It is all right to use these forms for a draft of your will, but it is best to call an attorney and make an appointment to discuss the final draft of your will. Many attorneys are willing to quote prices over the telephone so be sure to discuss fees in advance. Many offer a free or low-cost first consultation. A copy of your will along with any funeral arrangements you have made should be kept in a safe place where family or a close friend can have access to the information when needed. A safe deposit box is sealed immediately after the death notice is published, so it is not recommended for storing instructions for funeral arrangements, wills or insurance documents. If you do not have a personal attorney, call the New York State Bar Association’s Lawyer Referral Service at 1-800-342-3661. You can request a comprehensive report on Wills and Living Trusts by writing: AARP, 601 E Street, NW, Washington, DC 20049.

Sheri was a proud alumna of Vassar College and Brooklyn Law School. An expert in bankruptcy law, Sheri especially enjoyed the several years she clerked for the late Judge John Connelly in the Bankruptcy Court, SDNY. Sheri was very active in her Boerum Hill community, and will always be remembered by her friends and family for her exceptional warmth and intelligence. Sheri was buried on August 28 at the Ahavath Sholom Cemetery in Great Barrington near her beloved father, Tom.

Believe it or not, it even lured -even chartered-Frasier, Dallas, Happy Days and Gunsmoke. Though it still ranks under the imperviously popular M*A*S*H. Our favorite Home reality shows are not as dreamy as they seem. Some HGTV renovation shows allow you to keep the furniture, but Fixer Upper isn't one of them. The only way to enjoy Joanna Gaines' stunning furniture finds forever is to purchase them all for a hefty price.

Jimmy Doolittle, center, wins the Thompson trophy race at the National Air Races in Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 5, 1932. He is shown with Charles Thompson, sponsor of the race, and Mrs. Thompson. AP Photo ON SEPT. 4, 1932, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Cleveland (AP) — A new land plane speed king was crowned today at the National Air Races as Major James H. Doolittle blistered over a three-kilometer course at an average of 296.287 miles an hour. Eclipsing the eight-year-old record of Warrant Officer Bonnett, France, by 17.807 miles an hour, the St. Louis flier blazed his snub-nosed plane six times over the straightaway and took the best four consecutive laps for his high average. He carried a sealed baro-graph and his only doubt of not making an official record lay in a pull-up from the course at the beginning of his runs when a forma-tion of army planes crossed his path to land. His record may only be stamped as official after the instrument is calibrated in Washington and the flight report homologated by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale, world governing aviation sport body in Paris.”

ON SEPT. 5, 1946, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “The biggest maritime tie-up in the country’s history was under way today as two A.F.L. unions called out 65,000 seamen in a strike against a Wage Stabilization Board ruling against a negotiated pay increase. All in all, some 500,000 maritime workers were affected, their ranks including C.I.O. unions which have pledged their support to the walkout. The action in New York Harbor hit 310 American ships and paralyzed industrial activities on some 300 piers in the metropolitan area. In Brooklyn the total volume of shipping is about 25 percent of the entire port area, according to an estimate by a spokesman of the Port of New York Authority. According to authority figures, there are 204 piers in the harbor section, 58 of them in Brooklyn. The industrial paralysis at the borough’s waterfront, already present because of the trucking strike, was now made complete by the shipping walkout.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON SEPT. 5, 1947, the Eagle reported, “Rio de Janeiro, Sept. 5 (U.P.) — President [Harry] Truman said today the United States is determined to support the United Nations with ‘all the resources at our command,’ but warned it will take steadfastness of purpose, unremitting toil and infinite patience to make the U.N. work. Mr. Truman, speaking to a joint session of the Brazilian Congress, said the nations of the Western Hemisphere have demonstrated to the world that right-thinking men can submerge their ‘individual prejudice and their individual aims’ to an agreement that will bring ‘great benefit’ to the world.â€?

Review & Comment Addressing lead pollution in U.S. drinking water to make it safe for all By Qi Bing and Maura C. Allaire The Conversation

Since the Flint drinking water crisis erupted five years ago, Americans have realized that many cities and towns struggle to ensure safe water. Currently residents of Newark, New Jersey are drinking bottled water after the city realized lead filters it handed out had failed. While most water systems in the United States provide reliable, high-quality drinking water, our research has shown that as of a few years ago, 21 million people in the United States relied on water from utilities with health violations. Why? Infrastructures are aging, environmental hazards are evolving and cities lack the funds to make fixes. No amount of lead in the body is safe, and children under age five are especially at risk. Lead poisoning can damage the central nervous system, reduce IQ, delay growth and cause behavior and learning problems. Nearly half a million children in the U.S. have elevated blood lead levels. Exposure comes primarily from lead paint, but lead in drinking water also contributes. Our research group studies long-term trends in drinking-water quality and what factors cause unsafe water. Our studies have shown that this public health crisis can be corrected through better enforcement, stricter sampling protocols, revised federal regulations and more funding for state agencies. Lead contamination in water is widespread Since it began regulating lead in 1991, the Environmental Protection Agency has reported nearly 7,000 violations of the federal Lead and Copper Rule, which sets maximum levels of these metals in drinking water. Of these violations, 4,110 occurred in community water systems, which serve people yearround. Another 2,639 were recorded in non-community water systems that serve places like schools. The violations have fluctuated over two decades, showing no clear downward trend. Between 2014 and 2018 the EPA reported 740 violations of the Lead and Copper Rule at community water systems. Montgomery and Harris counties in Texas had the highest number of violations. Several counties in the Northeast violated the rule multiple times, including Baltimore and Worcester, Massachusetts. Although violations in cities are rare, six communities with populations of 100,000 people or more had water with too much lead and copper, including Portland, Oregon; Providence, Rhode Island; and systems in northern New Jersey, Mississippi and Wisconsin. Very high lead levels tend to appear in very small communities. Three towns with fewer than 3,000 people – two in Michigan and one in Utah — experienced levels over 100 times the regulatory limit. Lead accumulates as water travels through pipes At treatment plants, lead levels often are acceptable — but then they rise as water flows through service lines. Acidic water can corrode lead pipes and carry lead that leaches from them to the tap. Utilities can’t fully control the problem because property owners usually own the pipes that connect homes to the water mains. Until the 1950s, lead pipes to houses were common. By 1986 they were banned, but old lead pipes remain — and are corroding — across the country, especially in the Northeast, Midwest and older urban areas. Nearly one-third of water systems in the U.S. report that at least some of their service lines contain lead. The exact number of lead service lines is estimated at 7 to 11 million — more than 50,000 miles of lead pipes. This would mean that service lines to the homes of about 15 to 22 million people, or 7 percent of those served by a community water system, could contain lead. More than one in five utilities do not know whether lead service lines exist for the homes they serve. Addressing this problem will require the federal government to update regulations, while states improve monitoring and enforcement. The EPA does not require lead testing in schools, and sampling procedures at community water systems can be inconsistent. Lead is one of the few water contaminants that utilities are required to measure at a customer’s home, and utilities do not always follow EPA sampling procedures in practice. A violation is incurred only if 10 percent or more of samples have concentrations above the action level for lead, which is 15 parts per billion. Some utilities take many more samples than required and discard those with high lead levels, a 2016 investigation found.

Another hurdle is reduced funding for enforcement activities. State funding declined by 26 percent from 2001 to 2011, while workloads have increased due to new rules. Controlling corrosion and replacing pipes Water system managers must inform the public when they find elevated lead levels. They may need to reduce pipe corrosion or replace service lines made of lead. Water treatments to adjust pH and lessen corrosion can be effective in reducing exposure to lead. They are required in cities of more than 50,000 and in smaller systems with violations. Flint’s system lacked proper corrosion control, which would have cost only about $100 per day. Replacing lead pipes nationwide, which would permanently solve the corrosion problem, would cost $16 billion to $80 billion. Utilities that cannot reduce lead levels through corrosion control are legally required to replace pipes at a rate of 7 percent yearly. However, they only have to pay for replacing pipes they own. Many homeowners decline to pay for their portion, which can cost between $1,000 and $12,000. Partial replacements can worsen conditions by disrupting pipelines and dislodging lead. Nonetheless, some cities have launched replacement programs. Others, including Detroit, Den-

ver and Newark, have taken steps to identify and inventory lead pipes in their service areas. Stricter rules Revised federal and state guidelines could limit oversampling by utilities and improve water testing in people’s houses. New regulations could prohibit the practice of “pre-flushing,” or running water for several minutes before drawing a sample, which some engineers use to clear lead from pipes prior to testing. Another strategy would be for regional EPA offices to conduct random sampling of tap water quality. The EPA currently is considering long-term revisions to the Lead and Copper Rule. In our view, an updated rule should require corrosion control, identification and replacement of lead lines, specific sampling procedures and better public education. We believe that lead contamination can be eliminated through better enforcement, more funding for state agencies, stricter sampling and proactive efforts to control corrosion. These actions will pay off by improving children’s health nationwide. Qi Bing is a Ph.D. Student in Urban and Environmental Planning and Policy, University of California, Irvine Maura C.

Celebrate the women New York (should be) named for at the Transit Museum By Alex Williamson

O

The JOURNAL

n the street signs, subway stations, neighborhoods and buildings of New York, the names of historically significant men are everywhere. Bleecker Street. Astor Place. Lincoln Center. Even Downtown Brooklyn’s Schermerhorn Street is named for 18th-century Dutchman Peter Schermerhorn, best remembered for having owned a large rope factory. What would it be like to live in a city where everything was named for notable women instead?

That’s the question posed by the City of Women map, currently on display at the Transit Museum’s “Navigating New York” exhibit. The map was co-created by geographer and writer Joshua Jelly-Schapiro and prominent feminist critic and essayist Rebecca Solnit, author of “Men Explain Things to Me.” Together, Solnit and Jelly-Schapiro wrote “Nonstop Metropolis,” a book of imaginative essays and maps, including the City of Women map, that won the Municipal Art Society’s pres-tigious Brendan Gill Prize in 2017. The museum will unveil an updated version of the map Sept. 19 during a conversation with Jelly-Schapiro and New York Times contributor Julie Scelfo. The discussion will explore the significance of place names and

challenge the status-quo of the world’s overwhelmingly male toponyms. The City of Women map re-imagines the city’s subway system as a landscape devoted to its Great Women, where Lorimer Street is replaced with Barbra Streisand Street, Astoria Boulevard becomes Ethel Merman Boulevard and 18th-century attorney John Chambers is ousted from Lower Manhattan by Beyoncé. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Emma Lazarus and Zora Neal Hurston get an overdue shoutout as well. The project was intended to pay “homage to some of the great and significant women of New York City in the places where they lived, worked, competed, went to

school, danced, painted, wrote, rebelled, organized, philos-ophized, taught and made names for them-selves,” Solnit said in a statement. The updated version of the City of Women map will add more than 80 names and take into account some of the subway system’s major changes in recent years, including the extension of the 7 line to Hudson Yards and the opening of the Second Avenue Subway. The conversation between Scelfo and Jel-ly-Schapiro and the map unveiling will take place at the Transit Museum on Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $10 for museum mem-bers.
