Brooklyn Paper

Don’t call it a “miss”-nomer!

Community Board 2’s transportation committee voted to co-name a Brooklyn Heights street for Emily Warren Roebling, who helped oversee the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge from her house in the Heights after her husband, chief engineer Washington Roebling, was stricken with the bends.

“She is very brave and a wonderful woman,” said Boerum Hill resident Bill Harris. “She deserves this and I think it would be a wonderful thing.”

The committee voted 9–0 with one abstention (due to lateness) to approve the application to co-name Columbia Heights between Pineapple and Orange streets “Emily Warren Roebling Way.”

The Roeblings lived nearby while Washington was working on the bridge, but when he got a case of what was then called Cassions Disease that confined him to his bed, Emily assumed her husband’s duties and became the face of the project, overseeing construction and schmoozing with journalists and politicians during a time when women, who still couldn’t vote, were kept in the background.

People gossiped that she was the true genius behind the Brooklyn Bridge and when construction finished in 1883, she was the first person to cross the span.

Silhouettes of Emily, her husband, and her father-in-law John Roebling form a sculpture at the foot of the bridge and a plaque on the landmark also honors the trio.

But the street co-naming would be the only known tribute to Emily and will ensure her legacy lives, according to a local pol who endorsed it after his former employee suggested the idea.

“Emily Warren Roebling is an integral figure in our borough’s and our city’s history and this street co-naming will honor her enduring and ever-developing legacy,” said Councilman Steve Levin (D–Boerum Hill).

Local civic group the Brooklyn Heights Association also supports the co-naming, according to a rep from Levin’s office.

It will move onto a full board vote at Community Board 2’s general meeting on June 14.

Ten things you should eat in Bay Ridge

mikenova shared this story from Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

Food, glorious food.

There are scores of palate-pleasing treats in Bay Ridge restaurants and bakeries. To whet your appetite for the culturally diverse fare in the southwest Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood, we’ve made a short list of 10 things you should try.

Our list is lacking in leafy green vegetables — but we promise you, plenty of salad is served in Bay Ridge. For instance, Nature’s Grill (7417 Third Ave.), a health-conscious restaurant that’s everybody’s go-to place for fresh juices and smoothies, dishes up a really good pear salad.

When you’re not noshing, you’ll need a nice long walk to work off some calories. See related story for suggestions about where to go and what to see in the neighborhood.

* Middle Eastern: Try the cauliflower steak at Tanoreen (7523 Third Ave.) — which was rated New York City’s Number 1 Middle Eastern restaurant by Zagat in 2013. The prestigious Michelin Guide has included chef/owner Rawia Bishara’s restaurant in its Bib Gourmand list of top-quality restaurants with two-course meals plus a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less.

The crave-worthy cauliflower, covered in a crunchy coating of panko and Parmesan cheese, is jazzed up with tahini sauce, sweet pomegranate molasses and harissa.

* Scandinavian: The cakes at Leske’s (7612 Fifth Ave.) are tempting.

The bakery was launched a half-century ago, when a heavy concentration of Norwegian-Americans lived in Bay Ridge. It closed in 2011 but was reopened the following year by new owners, one of whom was a baker who had worked at Leske’s.

* Greek: Order the baklava at Omonia Café (7612 Third Ave.), a Zagat-listed Greek dessert mecca.

* Italian: Have the sweet capicollo, mozzarella and long-stem artichoke sandwich at Paneantico  Bakery Café (9124 Third Ave.), a hugely popular Bay Ridge eatery that’s also Zagat-listed. The server will bring out a bottle of Roso Balsamic Glaze reduction — a sauce that’s thicker than salad dressing and instantly addictive. Be sure to use it.

* Central European: The Korzo Burger at farm-to-table restaurant Brooklyn Beet Company (7205 Third Ave.) has langoš, which is Slovak bread, wrapped around it instead of a bun. This meat lover’s entrée was on the Village Voice’s 2011 list of New York City’s best hamburgers.

* Vietnamese: The beef pho — which is rice-noodle soup, as of course you know — at Pho Hoai (8616 Fourth Ave.) was on the Daily News’ 2012 list of the best pho in New York City.

Time for lunch at Pho Hoai, a Bay Ridge Vietnamese restaurant.

Jared Kushner scrutinized in Trump-Russia investigation: reports

mikenova shared this story from Politics Rss Article only.

President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has been identified as a person of interest in the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to reports.

The 36-year-old former real estate developer is not a target of the investigation, but officials told both the Washington Post and NBC that he is believed to have relevant information to the ongoing probe.

A Post report last week that a current White House figure was a “person of interest” in the Trump-Russia investigation, now spread between the FBI, Senate, House and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, sparked speculation that the person was Kushner.

The extent to which his activities are being scrutinized was not immediately clear, though part of the inquiry is believed to focus on a meeting he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and disgraced National Security Adviser Michael Flynn at Trump Tower in December.

Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner fail to disclose art worth millions

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka and was a key figure in the transition, also met that month with Sergey Gorkov, the chairman of Russian state-owned VneshEconomBank.

VneshEconomBank has been under sanctions since 2014.

“Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about these meetings. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry,” the adviser’s lawyer told the Post and NBC.

Unreported meetings and calls with Kislyak brought a quick end to Flynn’s time on the National Security Council after he allegedly misrepresented whether the chats had included talk of sanctions.

Sean Spicer upset that Trump did not let him meet Pope Francis

Kushner did not disclose the meeting with Kislyak on a security clearance form that required a list of meetings with foreign officials, though his lawyer said that the form was simply submitted early and that more information would be provided.

Flynn, who declined to answer a Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena for information earlier this week, is believed to be one of the focuses of the Russia-Trump investigation, along with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

Manafort previously spent time in Ukraine working for a pro-Kremlin party before joining the campaign.

Mystery solved! Russian billionaires yacht cant dock because it is illegal

mikenova shared this story from Brooklyn Paper: Full articles.

See this story at BrooklynPaper.com.

By Caroline Spivack

Brooklyn Paper

A yacht owned by a Russian oligarch that has floated in Gravesend Bay for more than a month — and drifted there throughout President Trump’s first visit to the city since taking office — is sitting idle because it is illegal for the vessel to dock.

The massive German-made ship Le Grand Bleu is owned by Russian-born billionaire and oil tycoon Eugene Shvidler — who became a U.S. citizen in 1994 — flies Bermuda’s flag. And because the vessel is not a U.S.-flagged ship, was not constructed in the U.S., and is not crewed exclusively by U.S. citizens, federal law prohibits the boat from directly sailing from one American port to the next.

The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, also known as the Jones Act, regulates maritime commerce on domestic waters and solely allows U.S. ships to sail from one local port to the next with ease. Originally intended to promote U.S. shipping, it is a law that has since rocked the boat for those who man foreign flagged ships to avoid steep U.S. taxes or sidestep regulations, according to maritime lawyer Jim Walker.

Shvidler’s ship set sail from Florida on April 13 and cast anchor in Gravesend Bay on April 16, where it has and will remain for as long as he’s in town, unless he wants to incur a hefty fine for docking in New York Harbor or run the risk of the government towing away his football field-length vessel.

Penalties for pulling up to a pier in violation of the Jones Act vary with the value of the merchandise the boat is carrying or of the cost of transportation — whichever tallies up to a higher sum — but can easily soar into the millions. In fact, in April the Department of Justice slapped an Alsakan company a whopping $10 million fine for using a Chinese ship to transport gear from the Gulf of Mexico to Alaska — the fee is the largest in history of the Jones Act.

It is possible to get a waiver, but only in extreme circumstances where it is considered necessary in the interest of national defense. For the Exxon Valdez spill in 1989, for instance, waivers were granted for foreign-flag oil skimming barges to help clean the mess until U.S. vessels could replace the ships.

But Shivdler can — and probably has — take his speedboat out for a spin and set foot in the city for a tamer $300 fee.

Le Grand Bleu was given to Shivdler in 2006 by his business partner and fellow billionaire Roman Abramovich who is pal to Russian President Valdamir Putin. The vessel comes complete with a 65-person crew, helicopter, aquarium, and speedboat.

It’s unclear how long Shivdler plans to anchor in the bay and what business has brought him to New York, and we could not reach him for comment or even to get a free tour of the yacht.

The Brooklyn Bridge is 134 years old.

And What Shall I Love? Looking at Giorgio de Chirico

mikenova shared this story from The Brooklyn Rail.

In 1969 a young artist in Turin named Giulio Paolini took as his personal motto the Latin inscription—itself a quotation from Nietzsche—at the foot of an early Giorgio de Chirico self-portrait: Et quid amabo nisi quod ænigma est [And What Shall I Love If Not the Enigma]. He made the phrase into his own business card and transformed it into a public manifesto by placing it on an enormous banner hung across the main piazza in Como. This was his contribution to Campo Urbano, the public art intervention staged that year by Luciano Caramel in collaboration with Ugo Mulas and Bruno Munari, which invited artists out of their studios and galleries to engage directly with the urban environment, the spaces of daily life. For Paolini, it was the beginning of a decades-long fascination with de Chirico’s oeuvre, which Paolini has referenced, cited, and interrogated in his conceptual practice—artwork that is now the subject of the fourth season at the Center for Italian Modern Art (CIMA), which places paintings spanning much of de Chirico’s career together with works by Paolini from the 1960s to today.

This phrase “And What Shall I Love If Not the Enigma” was a touchstone as well for Philip Guston—Dore Ashton said he quoted it all his life; and it was a prompt for Sylvia Plath, too, who wrote several poems inspired by de Chirico paintings, as did Mark Strand, John Ashbery, and others (Ashbery also translated parts of de Chirico’s surrealist novel Hebdomeros). I love that Louise Bourgeois and her husband, the art historian Robert Goldwater, together dedicated themselves to translating some of de Chirico’s writings. De Chirico’s work has beguiled and bedeviled a surprising number of artists and writers.

Many—most famously the Surrealists—focused only on the output of that brief decade of the 1910s, de Chirico’s Metaphysical period—the fertile musings of an artist profoundly connected to dreams and existential questions of being. It is, in fact, hard to think of another artist so heralded as a genius whose subsequent half-century-plus output has been so creatively and derisively condemned. André Breton wrote in 1928 that he and other the Surrealists “[having had] spent five years now despairing of Chirico, forced to admit that he no longer [had] the slightest idea of what he is doing.” William Rubin, in his 1982 MoMA catalogue, called the later work “a tragedy that turned into a farce.” And in the Brooklyn Rail in 2004, Robert C. Morgan speculated about a “weird, uncanny disorder” that the artist must be suffering from:

“With the unbelievably stupid characterizations of Titian, Rubens, Watteau, Corot, and Hals, one can only ask: where is this artist going? What is the work really about? Had the biochemical industry been more advanced at mid-century, perhaps the master might have benefited—Prozac by day, Viagra by night, or vice versa.”

And yet for many artists, such as Guston or Warhol or Paolini, de Chirico’s later work has been a vital source. His practice of self-citation, copying, and appropriation or pastiche, his flamboyant self-portraits in Baroque costume, appeal to our postmodern sensibilities, our fascination with camp and the “bad painting” that emerged in the 1980s—observations first brilliantly articulated by Emily Braun in her essay “Kitsch and the Avant-Garde: The Case of de Chirico.”

There are still few opportunities in the United States to see any of de Chirico’s post-Metaphysical paintings, however—a legacy of the canonical narrative first shaped by the Surrealists and reinforced in the U.S. by exhibitions such as Alfred Barr’s Dada, Surrealism, and Fantastic Art at MoMA in 1936 and William Rubin’s Giorgio de Chirico at MoMA in 1982. Likewise James Thrall Soby’s 1941 book on de Chirico treated only the early works, disregarding his subsequent career—“left it out of the family album,” as artist Lisa Yuskavage succinctly put it.

CIMA was created to engage fresh narratives, to draw attention to 20th-century Italian artists who have generally remained outside the canonical accounts of modern art, accounts that, in the U.S., have historically tended to the Franco-centric. Exhibitions at CIMA are laboratories for an art history fellowship program and platforms for programming that offers other points of access to the works—through artists, writers, scholars, and the like. Most of all, the hope is to offer a different experience of great art, one based on the idea of close looking and engaging with the works in an intimate, contemplative space, over a period of time. Looking opens us to transformation, roots us to the present, while opening windows to other moments in history, to a thread of common humanity and creation. The act of close looking makes us better critics, better historians, and maybe better humans. In these pages are contributions from some of our fellows, and from the poets, painters, and scholars who have looked to de Chirico and who have participated in this season, wrestling with “the enigma” and helping us to see in new ways.
