One of Coney Island’s most well-known charities serving Southern Brooklyn’s neediest, the Salt and Sea Mission, lost its home in Superstorm Sandy. Now relocated to Bay 50th Street near Stillwell Avenue, neighbors say it will draw “undesirables” and hurt property values.

The new location was donated by an anonymous property owner, bringing relief to Pastor Debbe Santiago that the shelter could continue to provide services to the homeless, drug addicts and domestic abuse victims.

But residents of Harway Terrace nearby are sharing concerns about the clientele, even though the location is in the middle of a commercial-industrial corridor.

Brooklyn Daily reports:

Residents were dismayed at the prospect of a magnet for the indigent and addicted opening just around the corner from their homes.

“It’s going to be a disaster. You see all of them lined up on Neptune Avenue. I’m not putting them down, but there are a lot of undesirables,” said Norman Hyman.

Others feared that having a such a facility nearby would torpedo local home prices.

“I guess it’s time to sell now. Our housing values are going to go way down,” said a woman who declined to give her name, but said she owned a home around the corner.

NIMBYism, or well-founded concerns? You tell us.

Alan Gorelick has been charged with stealing $610,914.94 from the Harway Terrace apartment complex in Bath Beach on 2475 West 16th Street. Authorities say that he was able to do this by using his position as manager of the complex to divert money from tenants into a business account.

Gorelick is the vice president of the real estate company, Saparn Realty and his wife, Anita, is the founder and president. On January 16, Gorelick was arrested and charged; he is awaiting his trial behind bars since he did not make the $750,000 bail. The police charged him with one count of grand larceny and nine counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

According to a Commercial Observer article:

Mr. Gorelick diverted $610,914.94 from Harway Terrace and deposited it into Saparn’s business account, “either by depositing checks from third parties written to the order of Harway Terrace or by depositing checks written against two of Harway Terrace’s accounts into Saparn’s business accounts,” the complaint indicates.

As executive vice president of Saparn, located at 505 Eighth Avenue, between 35th and 36th Streets in the Garment District, Mr. Gorelick is the liaison with the banking community and he heads up the firm’s sales and mortgage brokerage departments. He runs the firm with his wife Anita Sapirman, the complaint indicates. She is the founder and president of Saparn. A message left for Ms. Sapirman at her office was not returned.

Gorelick is also a member of the Real Estate Board of New York. If convicted of grand larceny, Gorelick could serve up to 15 years in prison.

Neighbors are looking to monitor the rowdy behavior of after-school students from Dewey High School, with at least one community leader saying it’s a longtime issue that needs to be addressed.

Carmine Santa Maria from the Bensonhurst West End Community Council (BWECC) said that the situation is twofold; first there are Dewey students running amok on the trains, then there are kids trespassing in the community after dismissal.

“These kids do whatever they wan to do. It’s not right,” Santa Maria said, citing instances of fights and drug use on private property including the Harway Terraces (2475 West 16th Street), where the group meets.

Because students are no longer on school property, there’s not much that educators can do, Santa Maria explained.

Located at 50 Avenue X, Dewey high school is less than two blocks from the Bay 50th train station on the D line.

“Dewey’s on the outskirts,” Santa Maria said. “You’ll always have kids that hang out after school, but you need to concentrate on the problem.”

The release stated that the community is currently “accepting questions to find out ways to ameliorate the problems and increase Police presence and service to our Bensonhurst/ Gravesend/District 21 areas.”

If there is instance of trespassing, the Community Council advised residents to call 911.

“This has been a long-time problem,” Santa Maria said. “There’s not enough control.”

The Bensonhust West End Community Council will discuss this issue at their next meeting, Thursday, March 21 at 7:30 p.m. The group meets at the Harway Terrace Community Room, 2475 West 16th Street. Representatives from the NYPD’s Transit division, as well as local elected officials, are expected to attend.

Don’t forget tonight’s Bensonhurst West End Community Council meeting at 7:30 p.m. in the Harway Terrace Community Room at 2475 West 16th Street.
