For those of you who are not in the know, 17 Monitor Street happens to be the old St. Cecilia’s School. A plan has been submitted— but disapproved— to convert this facility into residences. This has been some source of controversy in the community.

When I walked by today nary a Stop Work Order was to be found. Perhaps they got their proverbial ducks in a row? In any case, it is going to be interesting to watch this one unfold…

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Sold For Scrap?

Curious to know exactly what this is about, I gave Mr. Madia a ring. Here’s the deal (in layman’s terms):

  • This property is owned by the church and is habitable condition.
  • However, instead of leasing the property the diocese is selling any/all metal fixtures for scrap.
  • Inquiries made by concerned parishioners as to the revenue generated— and where it has been allocated— have been met with silence.

Interesting. While perhaps outside their jurisdiction (and this being as good a reason as any to give it a mention), I advised Mr. Madia and his colleagues to speak up about the matter at the next combined public and board meeting of Community Board 1 which is tomorrow!

Although I have already posted this item I feel behooved to remind everyone this upcoming Tuesday, April 27, 2011 starting at 6:30 p.m. there will be a meeting regarding the proposed upgrades on Nassau Avenue and the surrounding environs. Yes, this includes Monitor Street. A presentation by the Department of Design and Construction is promised. Check it out!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS: Update On Nassau Avenue Construction Project

April 11, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 


Given the rather acrimonious proceedings regarding this project in the past (lack of communication and the prospect of having one’s stoop lopped off tends to facilitate this kind of thing) I feel compelled to pass along that our inimitable Transportation Chair, Karen Nieves, has arranged a Town Hall Meeting with the Department of Design of Construction April 26, 2001 at St. Cecilia’s Church. At this meeting a presentation will be given apprising residents of any progress/changes made to said project (which as some of you recall now includes the city buying back the demapped strip of Monitor Street between Greenpoint Avenue and Nassau Avenue). Yours truly has little doubt this forum will prove to be no less provocative than its predecessor. Mark your calendars, folks!

TOMORROW: Balinese Dance at St. Cecilia’s

cuchifritaThis item (which is too damned interesting to resist posting) comes courtesy of my buddy Dizzy Swank. Per the Dame CuchiFrita’s Facebook announcement:

Come and see rare performance behind the woman known as Dame CuchiFrita. She will be performing traditional Balinese Dance that is centuries old , in a convent, about virgins… You will experience Bali in one evening as she will take you through her repertoire from contemporary to the oldest form of classical Balinese dance. If you have a love for centuries old traditions and love bending the rules, this show is for you. If you love Dame Cuchi on stage strutting her stuff and want to see her fully clothed and be transported to a different world, this one is for you too. If you love seeing modern dance juxtaposed w/traditional ethnic dance this is most definitely the show for you. This is part of AUNTS ROADSHOW, an evening of modern dance based performances that travels all around Brooklyn.

Check it out. It’s FREE!
