As the lawsuit filed by Assemblymembers Nicole Malliotakis and Ron Castorina against the city over the de Blasio administration’s IDNYC program was set to head to back to court on Jan. 5, the plaintiffs unveiled new legal firepower in their case. Malliotakis, Castorina and their lawyer Jeffrey Alfano announced on the steps of City Hall on Jan. 3 that prominent attorney Ravi Batra had agreed to join their case on a pro bono basis. Malliotakis and Castorina, who are both Republicans, are suing to prevent the Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Administration from purging government documents acquired through the IDNYC application process.

Hoping for More in 2017

J

I say somewhat satisfied not because I am dissatisfied, but because I know that no matter what is printed in these pages, there is always room for more news that is fit to print. This year I will improve on the coverage of our borough’s many immigrant communities, I know there are thousands of immigrants who need more information on changes in the laws and benefits that are offered to immigrants who are looking to start a better and brighter future here in the U.S. On the other hand, who would have known that just a year ago, when we had the Democrats firmly in control in the White House, that now we would now have the Republicans waiting to take control of our federal government? For this reason, we have to look forward to changes whether good or bad, and all new or recent immigrants need to be informed on those changes that will impact their daily lives.

I truly appreciate the opportunity to keep both our new and our established residents up to date by reporting on these new laws and services.

From the Desk Of the PUBLISHER

We also intend to publish information that is designed to help people who invest in our communities, including immigrants themselves. There are thousands of new immigrants coming to New York, investing in our city and our communities, going about their everyday business, quietly making an impact on our communities, and slowly but surely changing the landscape of Brooklyn and its many neighborhoods. They are adding quite a bit of wealth and strength to our economy. PHOENIX photo by Paula Katinas

anuary is the month that rings in the new year. It was when we launched our redesigned version of the Brooklyn Phoenix last year, and when this was accomplished I was somewhat satisfied with what we offered to our readers.

Indeed, some of our borough’s immigrants have turned useless buildings into luxurious condominiums and have built beautiful new private homes. Part of our mission is to publish news and new information to help them to make their lives better in so many ways — including information on the homeless situation in New York City

Who knows what the future of our new presidency will hold? But no matter what happens, most observers would say that Brooklynites and other New Yorkers have to support the risk-takers and others who believe in the American dream. No matter what the situation is in Washington, D.C., and no matter what type of anti-immigrant rhetoric seems to be prevailing, we have confidence that our local and state representatives are taking our interests into consideration. Remember, we have seen this type of situation before, after 9/11, when many immigrants from the Middle East came under suspicion. In particular, many Brooklyn Pakistani-Americans from Midwood found themselves the object of surveillance, and police tried to infiltrate Arab-American and Muslim student groups. Today, that situation, while it still exists, is greatly reduced. The best antidote to anti-immigrant sentiment is hard work from our immigrant communities in politics, in business, in real estate, in academics and in culture, as we have already said. No matter what this new year of 2017 brings, we are seeing more immigrants moving into the areas of business and government. I will rejoice in the days when we see more and more progress from our borough’s immigrants. Happy new year!

For Immigrant ‘Dreamers,’ an Uncertain Future By Harry Bruinius

A

llison Brady was thrilled last October when she received her second temporary employment authorization card, along with another two-year reprieve from possible deportation. Allison Brady was thrilled last October when she received her second temporary employment authorization card, along with another two-year reprieve from possible deportation. Her family brought her to the U.S. 20 years ago when she was just 10 from the Dominican Republic. She’s lived in New York City ever since. And like some 740,000 other “Dreamers,” she qualified for President Barack Obama’s controversial 2012 executive immigration order, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). But less than a month after getting her DACA renewal, Brady, a math teacher with New York City public schools, was one of the hundreds of thousands of such Dreamers gripped with a troubling sense of uncertainty after the election of Donald Trump. “I’m definitely worried now, not only for me, but for other people in my shoes who are in the situation I was in a few years ago,” says Brady, who is now married and is pursuing a master’s degree in education from Brooklyn College.

Indeed, with President-elect Trump and Republican majorities in both chambers of Congress vowing to undo a host of Mr. Obama’s policies, Democrats and immigration advocates have been fretting not only about the future of those undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children, but also the personal data the federal government gathered from DACA enrollees and their families. “If any new applicants are coming in now to apply for DACA, we tell them not to,” says Angela Fernandez, executive director of the Northern Manhattan Coalition for Immigrant Rights, which has helped more than 300 young people get their temporary work permits. “We don’t want the government to have their information.” As a candidate, Trump’s signature campaign issue was his hard line on illegal immigration, saying repeatedly that he would end the DACA program and possibly deport its participants along with an estimated 11 million others living in the country without documents. As president-elect, though, Trump has begun to soften his tone, saying he wants to “work something out” for the so-called Dreamers. “They got brought here at a very young age, they’ve worked here, they’ve gone to school here,” Trump told Time Magazine when he was named the magazine’s Person of the Year. “Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they’re in never-never land because they don’t know what’s going to happen. We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud.” Republican members of Congress, too, have been working with Democrats to find a way to replace Obama’s executive order with bipartisan legislation creating a similar program. “[I] do not believe we should pull the rug out and push these young men and women — who came out of the shadows and registered with the federal government — back into the darkness,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina, who joined Sen. Richard Durbin (D) of Illinois, to introduce the “Bridge Act.” Like Obama’s executive order, the bill would provide a “provisional protected presence” for law-abiding Dreamers, deferring deportations for three years and also allowing them to work.

Yet many Democrats have urged Obama to grant pardons to the illegal immigrants who came to the country as children — an action the White House has refused to do. Democratic lawmakers, too, have been urging the president to shield the names and personal information of DACA enrollees. There is much at stake, too, for undocumented immigrants like Brady, who have grown up, gone to school and struggled to make sense of their futures. “I was just a kid when I came, and I really didn’t know what immigration status really meant,” says Brady, who grew up and attended public schools in Washington Heights, which New Yorkers often call “Little DR” because of the many Dominican immigrants who live there. “I wasn’t really worrying about it until my senior year in high school when I had to start thinking about colleges.” “But when I started to really understand what my life was going to be like, I started freaking out, I started to panic,” she continues. “Why was I going to school? What is the point of going to college if I couldn’t get a career if I was an illegal immigrant?” She pressed on, doing what a lot of low-income New Yorkers do. She volunteered at a home for the elderly, she attended summer academic programs, she made her high school honor roll and tutored younger peers. And after getting accepted to John Jay College of Criminal Justice, she worked long hours as a bartender — off the books — to pay her way. It was overwhelming, she says, until she got a scholarship from a local civic group. “I was over the moon, full of joy and crying and happy after getting it,” she says. She loved her days tutoring and eventually decided to become a teacher. “As cliché and corny as this sounds, it’s like some people just have their calling,” the graduate student now says. “It took me a while to figure it out, but it truly makes my heart happy.” Yet she still felt that she was “living in the shadows, being a part of something, but not really,” during her 20 years coming of age in the U.S. Now married to a U.S. citizen, she says Obama’s order finally helped her become “DACA-mented,” as many Dreamers call it, and be authorized to teach math in New York City public schools. (Marriage can help gain citizenship for the undocumented like Brady, but there are many pitfalls). Brady's and others' futures also remain uncertain because of the current political climate, says Fernandez of the immigrant rights coalition. Many of Trump’s supporters have steadfastly stood against a path toward citizenship, punishing Republican lawmakers seeking immigration reform. And many of the president-elect’s cabinet picks, such as Jeff Sessions, his nominee for attorney general, have taken a hard line on illegal immigration. “But we need to sit down and talk to the people who view immigration and immigrants as a threat to their well-being,” Fernandez says. “Not everyone who voted for Trump is racist, not everyone who voted for Trump is afraid of immigrants,” she says, noting that there were actually a number of legal immigrants who voted for Trump in November. The key to changing the current political climate is “face-to-face relationship building,” she says. “But that’s the harder part. That’s what takes longer. But it has to be done. It’s critical.” © 2017 The Christian Science Monitor

GUEST EDITORIAL

This Land Is Our Land By U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke, State Sen. Jesse Hamilton, State Assemblymember Walter T. Mosley, and state Assemblymember Diana Richardson

e agree with the recent Crain’s New York Business editorial: “The Armory skirmish shows it’s time to think bigger in Crown Heights.”

W

We enthusiastically reiterate Crain’s statement that we need “a broader vision to grow Crown Heights in a way that preserves its economic and ethnic diversity.” We are duty bound as the locally elected officials of the Crown Heights community in which the BedfordUnion Armory (BFC) stands, to work to achieve this laudable goal, since the project is on public, cityowned land. Ultimately, we are all the landlords. However, before addressing this goal of growth and the preservation of economic and ethnic diversity, we must have good faith and transparency. For us, there remain a number of unanswered questions regarding the financials of the proposed project, the benefits and the burdens. We must be clear about the facts. According to Crain’s, “the market-rate rentals and condominiums will subsidize the rec center and leave enough profit to justify the risk to the city’s chosen builder, BFC Partners.” All of the locally elected officials have asked this question repeatedly: Exactly just how much profit are we talking about here? And at what cost to the community? What exactly are the details of these finances? BFC has not revealed that to any of us, nor has the city, despite repeated requests. It would be interesting to know whether BFC has released this information to a news organization and not to us.

For the sake of governmental, journalistic and business transparency, we request that BFC share that information with us as well. How can anyone validate a project of this magnitude without seeing the financials? Another very important concern that was omitted from the Crain’s article: What happened regarding Slate Property Group, formerly a partner in the project? Will there be a new partner selected? If so, what is the process for such a selection? How can there be an expectation of approval of a project when we have no idea of who is party to the negotiation and their intentions? Notwithstanding the lack of clarification and transparency of the financing of the project, we reject the notion that the rec center — really a community center — as an amenity, should be used as a Trojan horse to build luxury housing. The community center should include a variety of services, such as tech classes. It should pay for itself. We should not have to trade off affordable housing to build the community center. As it stands, the proposal presents only 66 out of 330 units being available to those earning below area median income — that 20 percent of the units allocated to near-affordability is nowhere near reasonable. As elected officials, we are united in the need for community services and amenities that provide tremendous benefits to Crown Heights and beyond. We may not all have a formal role in land use disposition, but we all have taken an oath to protect and serve the community that we represent. We raised our voices together regarding the urgency of addressing homelessness, the overweighting of studio apartments and other concerns in our joint Oct. 6, 2016 letter.

The city’s administration is developing the site through the Economic Development Corporation, whose stated vision is to create economic growth “fuelled by the city’s diverse people and businesses.” Crain’s and the EDC seem to agree on the need to maintain “diversity.” Ironically enough, on the same day that Crain’s published their article, DNAinfo reported on a Rent Café analysis that found Crown Heights is one of the neighborhoods that saw a large increase in wealthy renters. And last week, ProPublica issued a study of eviction data that showed that there are more evictions in zip code 11225 (the zip code of the Bedford-Union Armory site) than nearly every other zip code in the city. We are clear that Crown Heights does not need more luxury development. The number of large luxury developments going up in the area is staggering. That’s why, after extensive conversations with the community, a logical consensus emerged with a rare level of support: The community and elected officials are committed to creating a community center along with 100 percent affordable housing development. Let’s remember who owns this land: the city of New York. If BFC can’t come up with a plan that fits the needs of the landlord, our community, then maybe they are not the right developer for the project. We urge the EDC to live up to their words. Not every building being developed in Crown Heights needs to be or should be a luxury tower. We support “a broader, more inclusive vision of growth in Crown Heights that preserves its economic and ethnic diversity.” Unfortunately, this current development plan does not do that. We can and must do better.

Congressional Democrats Call on Lawmakers To Maintain Affordable Care Act By Andy Katz

Special to Brooklyn JOURNAL

Standing beneath a projection that declared “The Republican Plan Will Make America Sick Again!” U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez opened the Jan. 7 press conference at Woodhull Medical Center with a reminder: “Access to health care is not a privilege; it’s a right!” U.S. Reps. Hakeem Jeffries, Yvette Clarke and Carolyn Maloney joined Velazquez in the center’s auditorium, flanked by health care professionals and advocates for the elderly, many hefting signs calling for justice and fairness, for a press conference to demand that the incoming Republican Congress not repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as “Obamacare.” “In a fog of misinformation directed at the American people,” Jeffries declared, “Republicans have engineered a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C.!” Signed into law by President Barack Obama in March of 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has numerous provisions, some of which aren’t scheduled to go into effect until 2020. While some of its mandates, including compulsory states participation in Medicaid expansion have been struck down by the courts, most of its major provisions, including mandatory coverage, acceptance of pre-existing conditions and subsidies have survived legal challenges. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the percentage of persons without medical insurance fell from 16 percent in 2010 to 8.9 percent in 2016. Speakers repeatedly castigated congressional Republicans for seeking to dismantle the ACA without offering a viable alternative. “They have never, not once, put together a sensible alternative plan,” Velazquez declared.

U.S. Rep. Yvette Clarke: “To fiddle with the American people’s health … how heartless can you be?” Brooklyn Eagle photos by Andy Katz

“This [push to repeal ACA] goes back to the Republicans’ mission that ‘we cannot permit this president to succeed at anything.’” — U.S. REP. YVETTE CLARK “There is no replacement plan,” Jeffries concurred, “the Republicans have put forth to replace all the wonderful things the ACA has done for the American people.” Woodhull Medical Center head nurse Judith Cutchin and NY Nurses Association Treasurer Patricia Kane, on hand to lend their support, described the impact loss of ACA benefits would have on their patient population. “We have a lot of low-wage earners who’d be forced into medical indigence without the ACA,” Kane explained. When asked which aspects of the ACA they considered most vital to maintaining quality of care at the center, both Cutchins and Kane exclaimed, “All of it!” without hesitation. “Many women came to me who were pregnant,” Maloney told the audience, “and they were told that pregnancy is a preexisting condition, and they couldn’t get health care or insurance. How horrible is that in a country that says they value children and value families?” “Health insurance companies could charge women more than they could charge men,” said Clarke of circumstances that prevailed prior to the ACA. “In only a few years, more than 13 million Americans have obtained access to health insurance.” Repeal of the ACA had been a key part of most Republican presidential candidates’ platform during the election, including that of President-elect Donald Trump. After meeting with Obama, however, Trump has suggested that he might maintain certain provisions, including coverage for pre-existing conditions.

“As a matter of fact, I have a copy of the Republicans’ plan right here,” Clarke continued, holding up a blank sheet of paper. Laughter and applause ensued. “The untold story,” Clarke said later, “is that so much of the ACA was crafted with Republican input. But then they didn’t vote. They didn’t go on the record.” Velazquez agreed: “It is the height of hypocrisy for them to say ‘we were not provided any opportunity to influence the law.’ No. They were at the table.” “Most of it,” added Clarke, “is based on RomneyCare out of Massachusetts. This [push to repeal ACA] goes back to the Republicans’ mission that ‘we cannot permit this president to succeed at anything.’ To fiddle with the American people’s health,” she concluded, “I mean, how heartless can you be?”

Democratic Lawyer Ravi Batra Joins Malliotakis IDNYC Case Legal Team Continued from page 1 The identification cards are available to all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status. The city is seeking to destroy application records to protect applicants from being hunted by immigration officials. The case is scheduled for a hearing in New York state Supreme Court on Staten Island on Thursday. Both Malliotakis (R-Bay RidgeStaten Island) and Castorina (R-Staten Island) represent parts of that borough. The plaintiffs had previously won a temporary restraining order to stop the city, at least temporarily, from destroying IDNYC records. Malliotakis said the fact that Batra, a Democratic Party loyalist, has joined the legal team is proof of the bipartisan nature of the lawsuit. “Ravi is very active in the Democratic Party, as many people know. Our lawsuit goes across party lines and demonstrates that the city is wrong to want to destroy these records,” Malliotakis told the Brooklyn PHOENIX. “Though I’m a registered Democrat, I am proud to join this team,” Batra said in a statement. “We are New Yorkers and Americans

first, and being compassionate, providing sanctuary and enhancing public safety and national security are core bipartisan goals.” The plaintiffs are charging that the city’s plan to destroy records violates New York state’s Freedom of Information laws. Castorina said the idea of destroying public records is also a threat to public safety. “We must unite as New Yorkers from all backgrounds and political parties to fight for the security of our citizenry, no matter their immigration status, and to protect the integrity of financial services here in New York and across the country,” he said. The mayor has defended the plans to wipe out records of IDNYC applicants on the grounds that it will protect their privacy and safeguard card holders from being targeted by the federal government. “If you look at the original legislation, which is the law of this city, it was quite clear that we were not going to allow ourselves to be in a situation where those records are turned over to the federal government,”DNAinfo quoted Mayor Bill de Blasio as saying at a press conference last month.

Bedford Historic District By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

It looks like a castle. What’s not to like? Sixteenth-century Loire Valley chateaux served as the inspiration for renowned Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris’ design for 480 Nostrand Ave., AKA the Renaissance Apartments. The building, constructed in 1892, was designated as an individual city landmark three decades before the area where

it’s located became the Bedford Historic District in December 2015. So was Morris’ stunning Alhambra Apartments at 500518 Nostrand Ave. That building, constructed in 1889-1890, is a combination of Romanesque Revival and Queen Anne architectural styles. Morris also designed a smaller but thoroughly charming Bedford Historic District apartment building called the Clinton at 425 Nostrand Ave. It

was constructed around 1888. And he was the architect and developer of numerous distinctive Queen Anne-style rowhouses in the landmarked area. Other terrific Queen Annestyle houses in the historic district include 73-75 Macon St. and 122-132 Halsey St., which prominent late 19th-century Brooklyn architect Amzi Hill designed. They have distinctive-looking wood front porches. Continued on page 7INB

Welcome to the Bedford Historic District, where the Alhambra Apartments (shown here) and many other buildings designed by prominent architect Montrose Morris can be found.

The Most Worshipful Enoch Grand Lodge is housed in a church building that was designed by distinguished architecture firm Heins & LaFarge.

We love these Queen Anne-style rowhouses on Jefferson Avenue, which George H. Stone designed and built in 1883.

What Does it Cost to Own a Bed-Stuy Townhouse? By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

Do well-heeled homebuyers love Bedford-Stuyvesant as much as nerdy preservationists like us do? The prices paid for properties in the historic Brooklyn neighborhood suggest that the answer is Yes. Though the days when institutional investors waged frequent bidding wars for BedStuy townhouses are over, homes “on great blocks” are selling for around 10 percent more than their asking prices, Ban Leow, an agent at Halstead, told INBrooklyn. A couple years ago, the neighborhood was a magnet for institutional purchasers such as Dixon Advisory USA, which has a property fund listed on the Australian Securities Exchange that owns Brooklyn rowhouses and other metro New York residential real estate. Dixon was in the habit of outbidding other contenders for Bed-Stuy buys. But now

institutions “are more selective” when making neighborhood purchases and “more into the negotiating game,” Leow said via email. Townhouses in Bed-Stuy sold for $1.2 million to $2.6 million in 2016, he said. Pricing varies block by block. Homes in Stuyvesant Heights and west of Malcolm X Boulevard command higher prices, he said. Proximity to the A and C trains makes a difference. “Bed-Stuy East will see a surge in pricing as some of these prime areas … are not affordable anymore,” Leow predicted. Sales activity in the BedStuy townhouse market slowed a little in the summer, Leow said. Now that the election is over, “consumer confidence is back,” he said. He expects a “stable” Bed-Stuy townhouse market in 2017. One of his listings is a Bed-Stuy mansion with a $6 million asking price — 247

Hancock St. The freestanding 1880svintage house, which was designed by preeminent Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris, is located in the Bedford Historic District. “We do have an active deal at hand, but [are] waiting for more paperwork from the purchaser,” Leow said.

Lena Horne’s House Is in Contract Here’s a sampling of BedStuy deals that were done — or lined up — in 2016. • Members of the Calcott family of Berkeley, California bought 114 MacDonough St. for $1.85 million, city Finance Department records indicate. The French Neo-Grec house was built in 1890. The city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1971 designation report about the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, where the property is located, says it was probably designed by prominent late

19th-century Brooklyn architect Amzi Hill. • In December, an LLC with Junhui Jia as authorized signatory paid $1.5 million for 103 Hancock St., Finance Department records indicate. It is located in the Bedford Historic District. The architect, builder and original owner of the 1880svintage Neo-Grec brownstone was Susanna Russell. See related story on page 7INB. • The brownstone where actress, singer, dancer and Civil Rights activist Lena Horne lived as a young child, 519 Macon St., is in contract. The asking price had been $1,899,999, according to a posting on listing broker Corcoran’s website. The combination Romanesque Revival and Queen Anne-style house was built in 1890, according to the 2013 designation report for the Bedford Stuyvesant/Expanded Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, where the house is located.

We love the porches on these Halsey Street rowhouses designed by Amzi Hill. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan

Buildings That We Love

This is eye-catching Girls’ High School, which was built in 1885-1886 with an addition constructed in 1912. Continued from page 6INB There are oh-so-many lovable buildings in the Bedford Historic District. Here are photos we took of some of them; go to brooklyneagle.com to see

additional snapshots. As the LPC’s designation report about the neighborhood explains, at the time of the American Revolution, there was a small village in the area

called Bedford Corners. None of the buildings that were constructed within the historic district’s boundaries before 1870 are still in existence today. Most of the prop-

Here’s a look at Neo-Grec brownstones on Putnam Avenue that were designed and built by Theodore W. Swimm. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan erties there were constructed between 1870 and 1900. In the 20th century, it became a major residential area for African-American

and Caribbean-American families. Local luminaries over the years included the late Rev. Milton A. Galamison, who was the pastor of Siloam

Presbyterian Church at 260 Jefferson Ave. He was a civil rights activist who led prointegration boycotts in New York City schools.

Who Was Susanna Russell? A Tale of Post-Civil War Bed-Stuy By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn

She built Neo-Grec style 60 and 62 Hancock St. around 1882. They are steps away from 70 to 84 Hancock St., a row of Neo-Grec homes with Egyptian Revival elements that she had constructed in 1880. She was the architect, builder and owner of NeoGrec style 92 to 96 Hancock St., which she constructed in 1881 — and of two rows of Neo-Grec style homes, 101 to 105 Hancock St. and 107 to 111 Hancock St., both built in 1882. She was also the sole architect, builder and owner of rowhouses outside the Bedford Historic District. Within the district, she and her husband worked together on the development of dozens of homes between 1871 and 1892.

Either Susanna Russell or Walter Russell was the original owner of five wood-frame rowhouses at 276 to 284 Monroe St. The Italianatestyle homes between Nostrand and Marcy avenues were constructed in 1871. They are among the oldest surviving buildings in the Bedford Historic District — and are unusual because even in the 1870s, most properties in the area were made of brick or stone.

AT RIGHT: One of the few women in late 19th-century Brooklyn to work as an architect and builder, Susanna Russell, designed, constructed and owned this row of handsome brownstones on Hancock Street.

This is a paean of praise for a trailblazer in post-Civil War Brooklyn. We salute you, Susanna. Susanna Edith Cosey Russell — also known as S.E.C. Russell — was an architect, builder and property owner in the section of Bedford-Stuyvesant that is now the Bedford Historic District. Although married women had the right to own property independently of their husbands in New York in the late 19th century, “it was unusual for women to play an active role in building design and construction,” says a designation report written by city Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) researchers about the Bedford Historic District. Russell’s stately rowhouses stand tall today. We walked around the landmarked neighborhood recently and tracked some of them down. The hunt was worthwhile, even in wintry weather. Numerous distinguished architects worked in the area, including one of Brooklyn’s big names, Montrose Morris. See related story on page 6INB for info about some of his Bedford Historic District designs. The area was designated as a landmarked district in

December 2015. That means the buildings in it cannot be demolished, nor can their exteriors be altered, without the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s approval. The district’s boundaries are Monroe Street to the north and Macon Street or Verona Place to the south, Bedford Avenue or Nostrand Avenue to the west and Marcy Avenue or Tompkins Avenue to the east. According to the designation report, Russell was born in England in the 1840s. She was married to Walter Russell, who was also a British-born architect, builder and developer. They lived in Manhattan before moving to Brooklyn. In Susanna Russell’s day, most of Brooklyn’s architects and builders were not academically trained, and apparently that was true of her as well, the report says. She probably learned her craft from her husband and two of his relatives, brick masons Frederick Matthews and Josiah Matthews, who lived with the couple and their three children. So about those houses Susanna Russell designed, built and owned. They include five clusters of terrific-looking brownstones that she constructed on Hancock Street on the block between Bedford and Nostrand avenues.
