Ghost Tours at Snug Harbor in Staten Island





Snug Harbor Ghost Tour: The Tale of the Matron


Snug Harbor’s Ghost Tours are back for another spooky season! The Tale of the Matron sets the backstory for a historically horrifying reenactment of events that took place at Sailors’ Snug Harbor in 1863. Your 75-minute tour will take place both indoors and out, and enters three buildings that are typically closed to the public: the Matron’s House, the Butcher’s Cottage, and the former Surgeon’s House (now known as the Governor’s House). Each space has its own unique connection with history, life, and the afterlife.


Fridays and Saturdays: October 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 at 8:00 PM and 10:00 PM


General admission: $20
Snug Harbor Members: $15


All tours start and end at the Visitor Information Booth on Chapel Road (or Carpenter’s Shop on Chapel Road in the event of rain). This walking tour will be outdoors, rain or shine. Patrons are encouraged to dress appropriately, and to bring your own flashlights.

Does Steve Saperstein Thinks Property Taxes in Bay Ridge is a Joke?


If you are a home owner in Bay Ridge, you know that Nicole Malliotakis has not done anything to alleviate the property tax problem in Bay Ridge.





Today, Steve Saperstein took a picture on our Avenue and tweeted it to say he is working with  Nicole Malliotakis. Is Steve Saperstein so disconnected from this district to know that Nicole Malliotakis has not done anything for property taxes?


Nicole Malliotakis voted for tax breaks for developers in Manhattan – Marty Golden’s bill. This is the building that received the tax breaks.


We really don’t need any more picture taking polls. I have been talking about the problem with property taxes for years so I know who isn’t doing anything.


Why would Steve Saperstein think that taking a picture of him speaking on our avenue with a politician who has done ZERO for property taxes would be a smart move?


I guess Steve Saperstein thinks Bay Ridge homeowners will be fooled by him and Nicole.





Steve Saperstein is running to represent this district and he didn’t even list property taxes as an issue on his website. Why didn’t Saperstein come up with his own plan if he was interested in representing us?  Saperstein ran for City Council last Fall and lost to Chaim Deutch.


Ironically behind Saperstein and Malliotakis in the office window is the initials REBNY.  We definitely don’t need that. Remember when John Quaglione got some last minute funding from REBNY  when he ran?

Councilman Brannan Supports 3rd Avenue Businesses



Councilman Justin Brannan awarded the Third Avenue Merchants $36,000 for their BID.  I’m glad to see Brannan reach out to the merchants as 3rd Avenue is a big part of community life in Bay Ridge. 


I would like to see the state representatives offer tax incentives to property owners on the Avenue. Marty Golden and Nicole Malliotakis failed to do that this year. Golden and Malliotakis fought for ebay and internet merchants sales tax while Businesses in Bay Ridge are struggling and closing. Obviously someone’s friends must be an online merchant who asked for a favor, else why would they bother?

Nicole Malliotakis Failed Property Owners






Oops it’s Election Season and Nicole Malliotakis failed to write a property tax bill. I wrote about this in September.


Last November when she ran for Mayor she talked about a property tax bill. But then she didn’t do anything.


Any Republican home owner in Bay Ridge can tell you that Nicole Malliotakis isn’t effective – she didn’t even introduce a bill and is now pandering.


Strangly,  Paula Katinas, a local writer,  published an article which made it seem like this bill was in the Assembly.




If there was a bill, there would be a bill number. The paper isn’t able to answer, even though ne of the Brooklyn Reporter’s Editors said, “if you have a problem, write to me.”
