Women’s Bar Association is looking for more mentees for mentorship program By Rob Abruzzese The Record

The Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association created a Mentorship Committee about one year ago that paired up seven judges and lawyers with more inexperienced attorneys as part of a mentorship pilot program. The program was so successful that now Co-chairs Madeline Kirton and Natoya McGhie are looking to keep it going and even Hon. Connie Mallafre Melendez Hon. Heela Capell expand it. “We started off with seven mentors and opportunities by using LinkedIn or other social mentees which we felt was a manageable media. And McGhie admitted that LinkedIn can amount,” Kirton said. “It was a pilot program be useful, but she explained that most of the and we wanted to start off small so that we breaks she’s had in her career came from facecould be sure that the mentors were accessible to-face networking that isn’t available through to the mentees. It was beneficial to do that the social media. “I get it,” she said. “Bar associations can first time through. This year, we want to expand it. We still want to keep it a manageable num- be intimidating. I think the first time I came ber, but we think we can at least extend it to 12 to a bar association event I was so nervous that I don’t think I even breathed. But you spots or more.” The biggest problem they had, though, was get over that pretty quickly when you see the finding mentees, young attorneys who are look- types of people at BWBA events. Now I look ing for guidance in their careers. Four judges back and I realize that I grew up in this bar participated last year, but at least two couldn’t association.” The program is fairly simple. The BWBA because there weren’t enough people interested will host an initial interest meeting in the fall in joining the program. “Mentorship is so special to me because it’s that anyone looking for, or to be, a mentor is how I got involved in this bar, it’s how I’ve asked to attend. Mentees fill out an application found jobs,” McGhie said. “It’s why I really so that the co-chairs can properly match them with a mentor that can help them with their spewanted to get involved with this.” McGhie explained that it can be tough cific career goals and who they will get along reaching out to younger attorneys because they with, personality-wise. After mentors and feel like they can get the same networking mentees are paired up, the rest is up to them.

Hon. Richard Montelione

Hon. Theresa Ciccotto.

“It’s up to the mentees to put in the work to get the most out of it, but we have excellent mentors,” Kirton said. “We gave a letter of introduction telling them who the mentor was and they had to reach out to them. We just touched base to make sure there were no issues.” Three of the seven mentees from last year, Danielle Ciraola, Annie Tsao and Lauren Arnel, not only met regularly with their mentors, but they also began attending other BWBA events regularly. “The ice has been broken so people start showing up to all of our events,” Kirton said. Past President Carrie Anne Cavallo also explained that because of the Mentorship Committee, a few judges have begun attending events hosted by the BWBA’s Young Lawyers Committee as well. “This is not just about legal stuff,” Cavallo said. “If they have a personal question, they should be able to go to their mentor. All of us come from mentor relationships and we still have

people that we still go to as mentors. We were hoping to emulate that with this program. It shouldn’t just be a one-year, short-term relationship that we’re setting up.” Kirton and McGhie gave a lot of credit to Cavallo for helping them set up the committee and giving them the autonomy to let it grow. They also explained that new President Meryl Schwartz has also been very supportive, which they expect will help it grow in its second year. “We owe a lot to Carrie Anne for helping us set this up, and also to Meryl for continuing to support it,” McGhie said. “We also have to extend our thanks to Judge Richard Montelione for his generosity in helping us to host a closing event where we thanked everyone for participating.” Last year’s mentors included Judge Montelione, as well as judges Hon. Heela Capell, Hon. Theresa Ciccotto and Hon. Connie Mallafre Melendez. Attorneys Lisa Lewis, Nancy Wasserstein and Arlene Boyd were also mentors. The program is free, but those interested in participating must be BWBA members or be willing to join the bar association. However, memberships are free for law school students and only $85 per year for attorneys with five years of experience or less. Anyone interested in being involved with the Mentorship Committee, either as a mentor or mentee, is asked to email BWBAmentorship@gmail.com or to attend a roller skating party that the BWBA’s Young Lawyers Committee will host at Pier 2 at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sept. 5.

Oops! Self-driving car’s Navy Yard rehearsal ends in embarrassing reversal By Scott Enman The Record

New York’s first commercial self-driving vehicles are set to hit public streets for the first time at the Brooklyn Navy Yard this week — but an earlier test ride that resulted in a minor collision with another car indicated there may still be some kinks to work out. The autonomous vehicle — one of six provided by Optimus Ride, a Boston-based company — began to reverse slowly after coming to a stop and hit a private car behind it. The private car’s driver, visibly annoyed, alerted the driverless car’s safety operator that his car had been struck. (According to a spokesperson for Optimus, the vehicle was not in autonomous mode when the contact happened; the safety driver had taken control of it.) Small incidents like this are sometimes unavoidable especially in urban settings, according to Optimus CEO and co-founder Dr. Ryan Chin. He said his company has insurance and stressed that because the cars

operate at such low speeds, there would never be fatalities. “You might have a bump here or there,” Chin told the Record directly after the inci-

dent. “That’s part of city driving in fact. We have great insurance partners that cover all of that and everything that we do, we try and record and try and improve. The combination

of the operator, along with the software, along with all of the data we’re gathering is there to improve our system.” Although there were no injuries or serious damage done to either vehicle, Chin said they would review the data to see what happened. The autonomous vehicles will transport both the general public and Navy Yard tenants between the ferry stop at Dock 72 and the Cumberland Gate at the intersection of Flushing Avenue and Cumberland Street. The cars, which can fit four passengers in addition to two operators, will run on a continuous loop between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. on weekdays. A round trip will take roughly eight minutes, and Chin expects there to be 16,000 to 20,000 rides per month. The operator at the wheel is there to introduce the technology to users and also take over driving if necessary. “The plan for all of our deployments everywhere is that they all start initially with operators and then they will eventually move to remote operation,” Chin told the Eagle back in March.

Chief Judge DiFiore is first government official to receive Columbia Business School award By Rob Abruzzese The Record

Chief Judge Janet DiFiore will be the first government official to receive the presti-

gious Columbia Business School’s Deming Cup award, an honor that is normally reserved for business leaders, at a ceremony on Oct. 22. DiFiore will be presented with the award for her work with the Excellence Initiative by the school’s W. Edwards Deming Center for Quality, Productivity and Competitiveness during a ceremony. DiFiore implemented the Excellence Initiative when she took over as the state’s top judge. It is a comprehensive evaluation of court processes and procedures to determine exactly which are effective and which need to be improved in an attempt to decrease backlogs, improve the productivity of the courts and increase access to justice. “It is a great honor to be chosen for this prestigious award,” said Chief Judge

DiFiore. “I proudly accept this honor on behalf of the entire New York State court system — its judges, judicial and non-judicial managers, and 15,000-strong workforce. “To receive this award along with leaders of some of our nation’s major business corporations demonstrates that sound management practices and intensive focus on productivity and efficiency can lead to excellence, and the highest level of service not only in private sector companies but in government organizations as well,” she continued. The award is given out each year in the name of Dr. W. Edwards Deming, whose management philosophy focused on quality and innovation. It’s given each year to Hon.

Angelicque Moreno has gone from Bronx housing project to president of the Academy By Rob Abruzzese The Record

Angelicque Moreno grew up in the same household as her cousin who was the victim of medical malpractice at birth and was confined to a wheelchair his entire life. She watched him struggle emotionally, financially and even with little things like getting to school every day. That experience was so profound that it inspired her to become a trial attorney, a career she has thrived in. She is a member of numerous professional organizations, been honored by nearly a dozen organizations and on July 1 became the president of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers. “People don’t understand that a disability like the one my cousin had really affects them, but it also affects the entire family,” Moreno said. “I watched my cousin struggle with so much, and my entire family struggle to help him. It was so eye-opening that growing up it was like, ‘Wow, I need to become the kind of lawyer that helps people like him.’” Moreno, though, grew up in a housing project in the South Bronx so the path to becoming an attorney was not clear for her. Luckily, her mother was focused on helping Moreno improve her life through education and always encouraged her on the trail to law school. “My mom is the large reason why I am here,” Moreno said. “She believed that education was the only way out of the projects. She did everything within her power to help me and never had a defeatist attitude. If someone, like a guidance counselor, said something that might have taken me off track, she was right there to say, ‘No, don’t listen to them; you can do it.’” After she graduated from Cardinal Spellman High School, Moreno went to Binghamton University and later Northeastern University School of Law. She loved attending law school and said that it got her out of New York so that she could experience various places like Boston, Seattle, and even Austria and France. The school also reinforced her desire to help others. “I thought I wanted to be a corporate attorney because I wanted to make money right away,” she admitted. “The school also encouraged you to take jobs that helped people and that other people might not want to take — work for the Innocence Project or Legal Aid.” Immediately after law school, she went to work for Manny Romero, a past president of the Brooklyn Bar Association and a trial attorney who trusted her when others probably

wouldn’t have. Later, she moved on to Rubenstein and Rynecki, where Scott Rynecki showed the same confidence in her. “One thing that Manny Romero gave me was experience,” she explained. “Nobody gave a 26-year-old woman with no experience an opportunity to try a case. I had my first trial in six months. So, quickly I was able to develop a reputation that I could try cases.” For the past 13 years, Moreno has been a managing attorney at her own firm, Avenzino & Moreno P.C., where she has continued to grow her reputation as one of the preeminent trial attorneys in Brooklyn. The first Latinx president of the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers, she has been

“One of my proudest accomplishments is the work I do in BWBA with Justice Genine Edwards, where we have been co-chairs for the annual holiday party,” she said. That event collects toys for kids and holds raffles to raise money for charities such as Safe Harbor Homes. “It’s a wonderful feeling to make children happy.” As president of the academy, Moreno is hoping to increase membership, advocate on behalf of trial attorneys in the state legislature and focus on attorney education. “In a statewide bar, you have a lot of attorneys with a lot of experience and a new group that has none,” Moreno said. “Trying to make

foster a culture of continuous improvement within their organizations.” The Excellence Initiative, which was implemented in 2016 by DiFiore, is responsible for a plethora of court programs, including presumptive mediation, which provides parties with one free mediation session in an attempt to avoid costly and lengthy trials. The other winners of the 2019 Deming Cup include Best Buy CEO Hubert Joly and UPS Chairperson and CEO David Abney. They are picked by a 41-member committee that includes prominent leaders in business and academia. “Driven by the ethos of continuous improvement, these diverse organizations are poised for long-term success, affirming the growing relevance of W. Edwards Demings principles across the private and public sectors,” said Professor Nelson Fraiman, director of the Deming Center.

both groups happy is challenging. We have a skills CLE both downstate and upstate. That is not going to interest attorneys who have been practicing 10-plus years. The younger members need to be active and we need to mentor them so that they can eventually join our bar as a trustee or an officer and so that they have the skills they need to be successful trial attorneys.” Moreno will have plenty of help over the next year because of her passion for the position, says Executive Director Michelle Stern. “She’s super engaging,” Stern explained. “Everyone she meets, she schmoozes perfectly, gets them engaged with the academy. It doesn’t matter if she has never met you before, she’s super passionate. Executive directors aren’t often this lucky where we have someone who is willing to put it out there, willing to march on for the academy. That ask is very important. It’s all about getting other people involved. It’s all about making connections, and there is nobody better than Angelicque.”

Angelicque Moreno was installed as the first Latina president of the NYS Academy of Trial Lawyers earlier this year by Hon. George Silver. honored as a Super Lawyer, been named one of the top attorneys in the city and state numerous times, received the Amy Wren Award from the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association, been honored by Borough President Eric Adams, and was noted by the New York Law Journal for having verdicts awarded to her clients surpassing $30 million. All of her success has driven her to give back, both to the legal community, but also the Brooklyn community. She is a founding board member and past president of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club and is active in a variety of other charities including the Brooklyn Women’s Club and Luminous Visions. Her success is also part of the reason she has become so active in bar associations like the academy, the Brooklyn Women’s Bar, the Brooklyn Bar Association and others. These associations allow her to mentor younger attorneys, but also to give back directly through charity work.

BROWNSVILLE — Police are seeking the hit-and-run driver who struck a 66-year-old woman in a crosswalk on Monday morning, according to CBS New York. The woman was crossing the intersection of Belmont and Rockaway avenues in Brownsville when she was hit by a driver who didn’t stop. She was taken to Brookdale Hospital, where she remained in critical condition as of press time. Many residents say that traffic lights are needed at the intersection, which is heavily traveled by cars, buses and trucks. Police are still seeking the burgundy SUV that fled the scene. 

The girl had fallen asleep in the back seat, and Elkin apparently parked the car near his home after his route was finished. Police said. The girl got out of the van and wandered around before she was found walking around 27th Avenue and Shore Parkway on Monday morning. 

10,000 JOBS AT NAVY YARD

BROOKLYN NAVY YARD — The Brooklyn Navy Yard has surpassed 10,000 jobs for the first time since the city took control of the former U.S. Navy campus in 1966, according to amNewYork. At its peak during World War II, the Navy Yard employed 70,000 workers, many of them in shipbuilding-related jobs. The city reopened the Navy Yard as an industrial incubator in 1969. “It was in the 2000s when the city started investing pretty significant amounts of money in the basic infrastructure that created the conditions that we have today where private companies can and want to establish themselves at the yard,” said David Ehrenberg, head of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp. 

BED-STUY, BAY RIDGE, PARK SLOPE HOMES FEATURED ON BROWNSTONER

BOROUGHWIDE — The most popular listings on Brownstoner this week include a renovated wood-frame house in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a brick row house in Bay Ridge and a small co-op in Park Slope. The wood-frame house, at 47 Chauncey St., was built between 1867 and 1870 as a single-family home. Its porch is one of the three oldest in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. The Bay Ridge row house, at 574 76th St., is located near the new Bay Ridge Parkway-Doctors’ Row Historic District. And the Park Slope co-op, at 305 Eighth Ave., is only two rooms but, according to Brownstoner, “has some well-designed aspects to recommend it.” 

STUDY EXAMINES WHY LOW-INCOME CHILDREN, FAMILIES MOVE OFTEN

CITYWIDE — An article on the City Lab website says low-income children “move around a lot,” whether the neighborhood they’re born in gentrifies or doesn’t gentrify. The article quotes a study conducted by researchers at New York University. Still, low-income families who leave a gentrifying neighborhood “are more likely to change boroughs or change ZIP codes” than families who leave an apartment in a non-gentrifying neighborhood. In any neighborhood, families who live in supported housing are less likely to move. In general, many factors go into why low-income families move around often. 

NIGERIAN-AMERICANS GRAVITATE TO BECOMING ENTREPRENEURS

BED-STUY — Nigerian immigrants in New York City often become entrepreneurs, according to BK Reader, and some of the businesses they found are food- and beverage-related. A case in point is Oluwarotimi Akinnuoye, co-owner of the Bed-Vyne Corporation in Bedford-Stuyvesant. Akinnuoye and several partners founded the corporation, which has three subsidiaries, Bed-Vyne Wine, Bed-Vyne Brew and Bed-Vyne Cocktails, at separate locations in the neighborhood. Akinnuoye told BK Reader that many Nigerian immigrant parents want their children to become either lawyers, doctors or engineers, but Nigerians born in the United States “are a little different. We’re more entrepreneurial, so we believe in trying to figure it out on your own. 

EAST FLATBUSH BUILDERS USE LOOPHOLES TO AVOID PARKING SPACES

EAST FLATBUSH — Many of the developers who are building apartment houses along New York Avenue in East Flatbush are avoiding the city’s requirement to provide parking for residents by using the loophole of assigning two addresses to a single building, according to the Brooklyn Reporter. According to the city’s Zoning Resolution, residential buildings constructed on small lots are required to provide parking for at least half of the units in the building. However, if that amounts to five or fewer parking spaces, the parking requirement can be waived. By using two numbers for each building, developers basically split the building in half — for example, splitting 15 units into two groups of eight. And half of eight is four, which, of course, is within the “five or fewer parking spaces” category. 

ADAMS, COUNCILMEMBER SUPPORT GROUP FOR JUNIOR PILOTS

FLOYD BENNETT FIELD — Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and City Councilmember Alicka Ampry-Samuel (D-Brownsville) joined the Young Airmans Association, a nonprofit group founded by three African-American members of the NYPD who earned pilot’s licenses, to announce a major grant for United Youth Aviators, an aviation summer camp that the group started this year. The ceremony was held outside the hangar for the NYPD Aviation Unit at Floyd Bennett Field, a historic airfield in Marine Park, according to Kings County Politics. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 92 percent of America’s professional pilots and flight engineers are Caucasian. 

Among Em’s best-known dishes are beef pho, banh mi burger, mango smoothie and hu tieu Nam Vang, a noodle soup with pork, seafood broth and other ingredients, Two Trees Management, which was responsible for the revitalization of DUMBO, is behind the restaurant’s expansion, New York Eater said. 

TIMES EXPLORES BROOKLYN TAILOR SHOPS

BOROUGHWIDE — There are still tailor shops that make custom-made suits in Brooklyn, and The New York Times recently looked at some of them. One such store is that owned by Yosel Tiefenbrun of East Williamsburg, who is both a Chabad rabbi and a tailor. Most of his clients, he says, are in their 30s, and they range from Orthodox Jews to jazz musicians. Another store is Mi Montuno in Prospect Heights, owned by Antonio Brown. “I look at myself as an artist,” said Brown. “I like to mix colors and fabrics to make one-of-a-kind garments. Once I make a design, I don’t do it again.” 

FREEK’S MILL IN GOWANUS SHUTTERED

GOWANUS — Though Freek’s Mill was a Gowanus favorite, the restaurant closed its doors last week, citing staffing issues. The eatery at 285 Nevins St. lost its wine director, general manager and two chefs since opening in 2016. Owner J.T. Stewart, who also runs a construction company full time, says he’s unable to continue on his own, Eater reported. Since its opening, Freek’s Mill’s farm-focused menu won rave-reviews from critics and a two-star review from the Times. 

THE FRANKS TO OPEN PIZZERIA

CARROLL GARDENS — The Franks of Brooklyn and Manhattan restaurant fame are adding a pizzeria to their culinary empire next month. F & F Pizzeria plans to open in a space between Frankies 457 Spuntino and Franks Wine Bar on Court Street in Carroll Gardens, according to The New York Times. Since pizza is not their area of expertise, they are working with baker Chad Robertson, who will be responsible for the dough, and Chris Bianco, of Pizza Bianco in Phoenix. “Everybody is a pizza expert in Brooklyn. We want to do something that is sustainable, delicious, healthy,” said Frank Falcinelli, one of the two Franks, along with Frank Castronovo. 

MINI-POLICE STATION IN HASIDIC WILLIAMSBURG

WILLIAMSBURG — In a traffic island on Lee Avenue in the heart of Hasidic Williamsburg stands a tiny, square-shaped building with a sign saying “Police.” According to Untapped City, the NYPD no longer uses this structure, but in the 1980s it was an official NYPD watch post. The station was established by the local community to have a police presence on the Sabbath, when Orthodox Jews cannot use phones. If there was a problem, community members could walk over to the building and speak to the officer on duty. While the NYPD no longer uses the one-person police station, it may still be used by the Hasidic community for other purposes, since the Untapped Cities author recently saw the lights on at night.

“Peter Pan the Musical” is ready to take flight BY JOHN ALEXANDER JALEXANDER@BROOKLYNEAGLE. COM

Peter Pan, the boy who didn’t want to grow up, is ready to charm you in a brand new production from Narrows Community Theater’s summer youth program. The show opens Friday, Aug. 16 and will run for two consecutive weekends. “Peter Pan” is Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie’s most famous work. He wrote it in the form of a 1904 play and a 1911 novel. Both versions tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous yet innocent little boy who can fly, and has many adventures on the island of Neverland that is inhabited by mermaids, fairies, Native Americans and pirates. The Peter Pan stories also involve the characters Wendy Darling and her two brothers, Peter’s fairy Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys and the pirate Captain Hook. The play and novel were inspired by Barrie’s friendship with the Llewelyn Davies family. Barrie continued to revise the play for years after its debut until publication

Cast of “Peter Pan the Musical.” of the play script in 1928. The play’s lyrics are by Carolyn Leigh with additional lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and music by Morris (Moose) Charlap. It was originally choreographed and adapted by Jerome Robbins. The Narrows Community production is directed by Jason Santel with music direction by Payton Millet and is choreographed by Annie Ester. “Peter Pan has always been

a character and a story towards which I’ve had an affinity,” said Santel. “The boy who won’t grow up, the girl who’s enamored with him, the pirates, the fairies, the mermaids and more. There’s something for everyone! When I joined the incredibly talented team, I knew that we would have to do something unique to make others see the magic on stage.” Santel explained that “‘Peter Pan’ isn’t your typical youth

summer theater experience. “It’s not just kids in oversized suits and dresses reproducing carbon copies of Broadway shows,” he explained. “Our mission has been to create our own show, one that has to be told by young performers. And Neverland is the perfect place to do that.” He said that he was very impressed and surprised every day by the cast’s creativity and skill.

“This show would only be possible if we had a cast of ferociously talented and determined actors, musicians and dancers,” he said, “and I’m so proud to report that this is exactly who we have. “I can guarantee that they will give you a one-of-a-kind performance when you come to see it,” he added. Performances are at the Fort Hamilton Army Base Theater at 101st Street and Fort

Hamilton Parkway on Friday, Aug. 16 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17 at 2 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 18 at 2 p.m.; Friday, August 23 at 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 24 at 2 p.m., and Sunday, Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. Photo ID is required and tickets are $25 for adults, $20, seniors and students under 21; and $15, children under 12.

A pilgrimage to Walt Whitman’s Clinton Hill home By Lore Croghan brooklyneagle.com

Preservation advocates are using the co-naming of a Clinton Hill street as Walt Whitman Way as an occasion to spotlight their campaign for city landmark designation for the poet’s home, which stands nearby. “This humble house is the birthplace of our cultural Declaration of Independence,” New York University Professor Karen Karbiener, who’s the president of the Walt Whitman Initiative, told INBrooklyn. After the City Council’s July 23 vote to put Whitman’s name on the corner of Ryerson Street and DeKalb Avenue, she led a pilgrimage to Whitman’s house at 99 Ryerson St. for her Columbia University summer students. Whitmanites call it Leaves of Grass House because the poet and his family lived there in 1855, when he published the first version of this now-famous poetry collection. “You guys are about to see the mother lode,” Karbiener told her students on Thursday as they stood up the street from the 1850s wood-frame Italianate home, which is covered with aluminum siding. “He became a poet in this house,” she said. “For many reasons, we would like to make sure it stays here.” Karbiener said a big residential development on the block where Leaves of Grass House is located is a reminder that “these houses can come down.” When she led her students to 99 Ryerson St., she made everybody stay on the sidewalk on the opposite side of the street from it. She didn’t want to upset the house’s residents, who don’t like to have people stand right outside the property. From a polite distance, the students scrutinized 99 Ryerson St.

“It looks like any other house. It’s not ostentatious,” said Columbia undergrad Noah Kulick. “Inside, all this creativity emerged from nowhere.” Whitman, who’s widely considered to be one of America’s greatest poets, was an editor of the Brooklyn Eagle in the 1840s. The Ryerson Street house is one of 30-plus places in Brooklyn and Manhattan where he lived. It’s the only one that’s still standing. The Coalition to Save Walt Whitman’s house is campaigning to get the property landmarked this year because it’s the bicentennial of his birthday — and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn Riots, which launched America’s gay civil rights movement. Whitman’s candidly sensual poems made him “iconic in the United States and Europe as one of the first people to openly express the concept of men loving men,” according to a posting on the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project’s website. His Clinton Hill house is one of the oldest buildings in the city that’s associated with a person who would now be considered LGBTQ+, the website says. Both the Walt Whitman Initiative and the NYC LGBT Historic Sites Project are members of the Coalition to Save Walt Whitman’s House, along with a team of preservation experts.

A look inside the Prison Ship Martyrs Monument The students’ pilgrimage to 99 Ryerson St. started on the corner of DeKalb Avenue and traffic-heavy Flatbush Avenue Extension. “Whitman’s Brooklyn had some of the energy we feel now,” Karbiener told them.

The group made two stops before heading to Leaves of Grass House. First, they walked down DeKalb Avenue to the Brooklyn Hospital Center, which opened as Brooklyn City Hospital in 1845. Whitman, who famously worked as a male nurse during the Civil War, was a volunteer at the hospital in the late 1850s. Right about then, the hospital built a Pathological Hall, which had an operating theater where people could watch surgery being performed.

Up in Fort Greene Park, the Walt Whitman Project’s Greg Trupiano talks about the Revolutionary War.

Professor Karen Karbiener and her students stand in front of the Prison Ship Martyrs’ Monument in Fort Greene Park.

In his work in the hospital, “Walt Whitman really learned to love the body from the inside out,” Karbiener said. Next, she led the group to the top of the hill in Fort Greene Park, which is next to the hospital. There, Greg Trupiano, artistic director and founder of the Walt Whitman Project, talked about the thousands of Colonial patriots who died during the Revolutionary War because they were imprisoned on British ships in Wallabout Bay. A Prison Ship Martyrs Monument to honor them opened in 1908. It’s a 149-foot Doric column. Urban Park Ranger Chris Wood took the students inside the column through a bronze door that’s normally locked up tight. A park for shantytown residents During the students’ visit to the park, operatic tenor Daniel Noone sang the aria “La donna e mobile” from Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto,” which premiered in 1851. Whitman loved Verdi’s works. Fort Greene Park exists because while Whitman was the Eagle’s editor, he relentlessly wrote editorials calling for its creation. He argued that a park was needed to promote the health of the residents of the heavily populated area, including Irish immigrants who lived in a shantytown along Myrtle Avenue, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report about the Fort Greene Historic District says.

Dillon Porter performs excerpts from “Song of Myself.” There were dangerous outbreaks of cholera in the summertime. The 33-acre green space was established in 1847. ‘I stop somewhere waiting for you’ Another high point of the visit to Fort Greene Park was performance artist Dillon Porter’s recitation of excerpts of “Song of Myself,” Whitman’s famous poem. “I am the mate and companion of people, all just as immortal and fathomless as myself,” he said. “I stop somewhere waiting for you.” Before the students left the park and headed to Whitman’s house, they walked down stone stairs to a crypt where the prison ship martyrs’ remains are entombed. Trupiano said only the descendants of the dead are allowed inside the barrel-vaulted chamber filled with caskets. More than 5,700 people have signed a petition calling for Whitman’s Clinton Hill house to be landmarked. Landmarks Preservation Commission staffers turned down Whitmanites’ request to have 99 Ryerson St. calendared for consideration as an individual landmark in 2017. Preservation advocates responded with a 13-page rebuttal. Elected officials including City Councilmember Laurie Cumbo wrote a letter asking that the house be landmarked. It’s located in her district.

Everybody in New York is familiar with Barclays Center. By now, you’ve been to a concert or a Nets basketball game at the Brooklyn arena with the distinctive oculus out front. But unless you live or work in Prospect Heights, where Barclays Center opened in September 2012, you possibly

haven’t seen the other buildings that have been constructed in the 22-acre Atlantic Yards/ Pacific Park mega-development that the arena anchors. One condo building and three rental-apartment buildings can now be found on the mammoth site at Flatbush and Atlantic avenues. The project is in the news again. There’s controversy over a 105,000-square-foot field house and gym planned for the basements of two as-yet unconstructed Atlantic Yards/ Pacific Park buildings because a full-scale environmental review is not planned. Advisory group Atlantic Yards Community Development Corp. will vote on this issue later this month. Grassroots groups such as Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn fought about many aspects of the Atlantic Yards project, as it was originally called. It received government subsidies. And developer Forest City Ratner got the go-ahead from New York State’s Court of Appeals in 2009 to use eminent domain to take over neighborhood properties and incorporate them into the project site. Currently Greenland USA, an entity largely owned by the government of Shanghai, is the principal owner of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park. Greenland transferred development rights to the sites where the field house and gym are planned to TF Cornerstone.

It’s never too early in the day for ice cream at Van Leeuwen’s AtINBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan lantic Yards/Pacific Park shop. The facade is “custom-fired brick,” according to info the architecture firm provided to website ArchDaily.com. The brick is brownish-toned on the lower floors of the building. The facade on the top floors is ghostly white.

According to city Finance Department records, a couple of the highest-price condo sales in this building have been a $4.227 million transaction in December 2017 and a $3.9 million transaction in February 2018.

Come stroll around Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park — Continued from page 12INB — When I checked the building’s website the other day, asking prices for available apartments ranged from a $1.5 million twobedroom unit to a $7.715 million four-bedroom penthouse. One of the building’s retail tenants is Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, which does its manufacturing in Greenpoint.

EIGHT ACRES OF GREEN SPACE? NOT YET COOKFOX Architects’ description of 550 Vanderbilt Ave. on ArchDaily.com mentions “eight acres of new, publicly accessible green space that defines the site.” If you expect to see this landscaped acreage, you will be sorely disappointed. Most of it hasn’t been built yet. To find the public space that has been created at 550 Vanderbilt Ave., leave the ice cream shop, turn onto Dean Street and head towards Barclays Center. At the edge of the condo building, there’s an asphalt-covered span beside a construction fence. A small stand of trees provides shade for wooden benches. And in front of 550 Vanderbilt Ave.’s back entrance, there’s landscaping and a reflecting pool with a small waterfall.

A RENTAL BUILDING FOR HOUSEHOLD INCOMES AS HIGH AS $173,415 PER YEAR When you gaze past the construction fence behind 550 Vanderbilt Ave., the next building you can see is on the corner of Dean Street and Carlton Avenue.

This rental building is 535 Carlton Ave.

There are entrances to the green space on Dean Street and Carlton Avenue. Strictly speaking, much of it isn’t green. The public space has wooden benches but no shade trees overhanging them. There’s a small grouping of trees, but there aren’t any benches beside it. And there’s a reflecting pool — sound familiar? Tables and chairs are set up on a blacktopped area. When I was there the other day, the heat was so intense, it left me breathless. There is something nifty on the asphalt-covered area — a set of outdoor musical instruments, or “sound sculptures,” as manufacturer Freenotes Harmony Park calls them. They’re tall aluminum chimes that make lowpitched sounds like gongs when you hit them with mallets, which hang beside them.

There’s a reflecting pool in the publicly accessible green space behind 550 Vanderbilt Ave.

WORK IS UNDERWAY AT SIXTH AVENUE DEVELOPMENT SITES When you’ve seen the public space, return to Dean Street and once again walk towards Barclays Center. In a couple of minutes, you’ll come upon a construction site with frontage on Dean Street, Sixth Avenue and Pacific Street. Its address in city Buildings Department records is 37 Sixth Ave. But architect Jonathan Marvel refers to it as 664 Pacific St. So does The Brodsky Organization, which has the development rights to the site. Marvel Architects’ plan calls for a 26-story, 323unit apartment tower with a 100,000-square-foot public school in the base of the building, as I reported when the firm first unveiled its design. At nearby 18 Sixth Ave. on the corner of Atlantic Avenue, The Brodsky Organization began work in the spring on an 859-unit, mixed-income rental apartment building designed by Perkins Eastman, Real Estate Weekly reported.

These handsome rowhouses stand on the corner of Vanderbilt Avenue and Dean Street across from Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park. When you stroll down there, you will discover its address is 535 Carlton Ave. It is part of the Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park project. COOKFOX Architects also designed this 18-story building, which has 298 apartments. All of them are rentals, designated as affordable units for low-, moderate- and middle-income residents. This is important because when Atlantic Yards was in the planning stages, Forest City Ratner agreed to build 2,250 units of affordable housing by May 2025. The Carlton Avenue apartments were offered through a lottery process managed by the New York City Housing Development Corp. Income levels ranged from $20,126 per year for a studio with a rent of $548 per month to $104,775 per year for a $2,137-permonth studio, an online posting indicates.

SHOP ARCHITECTS DESIGNED THIS SIXTH AVENUE RENTAL BUILDING

There is a completed Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park building on Sixth Avenue. It is on the corner of Dean Street, right next to Barclays Center. SHoP Architects designed this 23-story, 300-apartment rental property, whose address is 38 Sixth Ave. It looks like it’s made of giant blocks, some patterned with red and gray, some silver, others white. All the apartments at 38 Sixth Ave. are affordable units.

A MODULAR TOWER ON FLATBUSH AVENUE A little bit further down Dean Street, you’ll find a tower with a shiny red facade. It’s on the corner of Flatbush Avenue and is surrounded on both sides by Barclays Center.

• There is only one ‘chew’. Your teeth are uniquely yours and can act like a fingerprint. Even identical twins don’t have identical teeth.

Donate A Boat

• For those who think they are hard headed, your tooth enamel is actually the hardest part of your body. Reportedly, enamel is harder than steel, but can break more easily.

“2-Night Free Vacation!”

• Believe it or not, the cotton candy making machine was co-founded by a dentist. The sugary treat was originally named ‘fairy floss’.

EXTERMINATORS (PESTS AND BUGS):

• Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour. Scary to think of a cockroach running to chase someone. If a cockroach were the size of a human, there top speed will be over 200 mph. • The total weight of all the termites in the world our weighs the total weight of all humans. 

CHORES (HANDYMAN):

• Your kitchen sink is dirtier than your toilet seat! That is because people focus on cleaning and disinfecting the toilet more than they do on the sink. Meanwhile, E.coli thrives more in a wet and moist sink. • Bunker down your lid! Whenever you flush your toilet, “toilet plumes” or small waste particles get sprayed into the air, which you can inhale or can attach itself on your toothbrush. • An average mattress contains anywhere from 100,000 to 10 million dust mites. That’s it. We’re sleeping on the floor from now on. 

WORKING (JOBS WANTED, READY FOR WORK):

• Records show that the workers who built the pyramids at Giza were paid in bread and beer, about 3-4 loaves of bread and four liters of beer. • Leonardo Da Vinci is credited with writing the first resume and Julius Caesar invented the employee referral system. 

HEALTH

• Brass door knobs automatically disinfect themselves in 8 hours. • Laughing 100 times is equivalent to 15 minutes of exercise on a stationary bicycle. • Hey, good lookin’! Watching yourself exercise in a mirror can make a workout go by faster and easier. 

ROOFING & PLUMBING

• Water pipes used to be made out of lead. If you don’t believe us, trust science, because the periodic table element for lead is ‘Pb’, which derives from the word plumbing, plumbing. In latin, plumbing comes from the word “plumbum”, which means ‘lead’. • The hottest place on Earth is Death Valley, California. This means that residents roofs heat deteriorate quickly from ultraviolet radiation, extreme temperatures, and exposure to harsh weather. • In 2002, renovations were made to the roof of The White House to heat any water from solar rays. The water is then diverted to a hot tub and outdoor swimming pool.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 7, 1945

ON AUG. 7, 1892, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Fall River, Mass. — The latest development in the Borden murder, relating particularly to the theory of poisoning, has given way to discussion among the people today to talk of the funerals, which took place this morning. As early as 9 o’clock the house was surrounded by a great crowd of curiosity seekers. Reporters, artists, photographers and policemen were active among them. Shortly after 10:30, Mr. Morse came from the house and talked freely with a group of reporters. He said it was a terrible thing to be suspected and shadowed as he has been, but he courts the fullest investigation and is anxious and willing to do all that he can to trace the perpetrators of the great crimes. He said Miss Lizzie Borden’s health was in about the same condition as it was last Thursday afternoon. She did not mingle with the family to any great extent.”  ON AUG. 7, 1916, the Eagle reported, “Microscopic examination of various sorts of insects that may be found in the city at this season will be made by a corps of thirty or forty naturalists to determine, if possible, if infantile paralysis is being spread by insect carriers. Health Commissioner Emerson, in announcing today that this work would be undertaken, said that the naturalists would be secured by federal health officers. Flies, mosquitoes, bugs and all kinds of winged and crawling insects will be subjected to microscopic and other tests in the hope of finding what insects, if any, are carriers of the infantile paralysis germ.”  ON AUG. 7, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Washington, (U.P.) — For good or ill, man has unlocked the incalculable power of the atom. He has entered upon the atomic age. His first use of this power — the same that energizes the sun and the stars — has been to make a bomb. It is the most terrible engine of destruction ever conceived. It may end the Japanese war soon. If the Japanese decide to fight on, it will demolish their homeland. But when the bomb’s work is done, its makers hope to convert its power to the arts of peace and to the enforcement of peace. Upon realization of this hope hangs the fate of humanity. Atomic power could remake the world; it also could destroy it. Its power to destroy has been made manifest to the Japanese … Yesterday President Truman gave the enemy another chance to accept the surrender-or-be-destroyed ultimatum of Potsdam. ‘If they do not accept our terms,’ he said, ‘they may expect a rain of ruin from the air the like of which has never been seen on this earth.’”  ON AUG. 7, 1946, the Eagle reported, “Boston (U.P.) — John F. Kennedy, handsome, blue-eyed son of the former Ambassador to Britain, revived a family tradition when he ran for nomination for Congress — and won. Though his father never held an elective post, Kennedy’s two grandfathers — former Mayor John F. Fitzgerald and the late U.S. Senator Patrick J. Kennedy — were men of winning ways, both in and out of politics. Kennedy, 29 and a Harvard graduate, decided to enter politics while lying on a hospital bed, recovering from wounds suffered as a PT boat skipper during the war. ‘It was either politics or the newspaper business,’ he said. ‘And the Kennedys always have been interested in politics. That probably tipped the scales.’ Kennedy won the Democratic nomination for U.S. Representative from the 11th Massachusetts District, and since nomination is tantamount to election, he undoubtedly will succeed 71-year-old James M. Curley in Congress.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Aug. 8, 1945

ON AUG. 8, 1920, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reported, “Boston — Attorney General J. Weston Allen, who is conducting an investigation of the foreign exchange business of Charles Ponzi, announced today that he had furnished transcripts of the interviews he has had with Ponzi to federal authorities both in this city and in Washington, together with all information his office has obtained. The attorney general sought another interview with Ponzi yesterday, but the head of the Securities Exchange Company failed to appear and was quoted as saying he would not again visit the State House. In commenting upon this, Mr. Allen said that he had no authority to force Ponzi to appear or to compel him to give testimony ‌ Ponzi repeated today his announced intention of starting a new business Monday under the name of the Charles Ponzi Company, through which he has declared he will establish a chain of banks and conduct a general import and export business.â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 8, 1945, the Eagle reported, “Guam (UP) — Tokyo conceded today that most of Hiroshima had been destroyed completely by a single American atomic bomb Monday and said blasted and blistered corpses ‘too numerous to count’ littered the ruins. ‘The impact of the bomb was so terrific that practically all living things, human and animal, were literally seared to death by the tremendous heat and pressure engendered by the blast,’ one Tokyo broadcast said. American reconnaissance photos confirmed that four and one-tenth square miles — 60 percent of the built-up area — of Hiroshima had vanished almost without trace in the world’s greatest man-made explosion. Unofficial American sources estimated Japanese dead and wounded might exceed 100,000 ‌ As Tokyo painted a fearful picture of the catastrophe, some sources saw a possibility that Japan might reconsider her rejection of the Allied demand for her surrender before she is invaded. ‘It shouldn’t take the Japanese long to think this over,’ one ranking officer said. ‘We plan to present them with bursting atoms as often as possible.’â€? ď‚Ťď‚Ťď‚Ť ON AUG. 8, 1951, the Eagle reported, “Tehran (U.P.) — Optimism ran high at the start of formal Anglo-Iranian oil talks today and Britain’s chief negotiator disclosed he already has submitted an official outline for a final settlement. Two key Iranian negotiators expressed confidence that the dispute over Iran’s nationalization of Britain’s huge oil interests would be settled peaceably. They said Britain’s friendly attitude at a preliminary session Monday night was a good sign. At the same time, Britain’s Lord Privy Seal Richard Stokes, chief of the British delegation, said the general atmosphere both here and in the oil port of Abadan had ‘vastly improved.’ Stokes disclosed that he had presented a memorandum to Iran, containing Britain’s general ideas for settling the oil dispute. The British delegation, he said, was awaiting Iran’s reply before getting down to details. The only ominous note today came in Iran’s official demand that Britain recall and reprimand its consul at Khoramshahr, an oil town, for asking the recall of two Iranian oil officials as ‘undesirable elements.’â€?
