Since Governor Cuomo updated guidance for indoor and outdoor venues, I’ve reached out to city officials and others to ensure FREE Summer Concerts return to Coney Island this year.

Free Coney Island concerts will return to the Coney Island amphitheater!

Details are still being ironed out since the Governor only recently updated guidance, but I can confirm free Coney Island concerts will return and I’m proud that my office worked on ensuring the preservation of these free shows since they were not secured with the transition from the last administration.

Each show must adhere to state and local health guidance. Details on the free shows will be released within the next two weeks! Stay tuned! #cantstopwontstop

The NYPD has made an arrest in the beating of two Jewish teenagers that were assaulted recently along Ocean Parkway near 18th Avenue in Brooklyn, which is clearly an abhorrent hate crime. I want to thank the NYPD for their expeditious work.

I want to add that if it wasn’t for the Muslim Uber driver nearby, the situation could have gotten a lot worse and he helped save them. I’ve spoken with Uber to try to thank him more publicly for his heroic work.

And this story is a reminder that that we are indeed stronger together. Our Muslim neighbors are allies in the fight against anti-Semitism and all forms of hate while they continue to be subjected to horrific hate. An attack on one is an attack against all. We will stand shoulder to shoulder together to ensure no one lives or prays in fear in our great city. No one.

We are in this together. Love your neighbors. We are New York City and we are one family. ❤️

Doesn’t get talked about enough, but a top Council priority is to improve ventilation and add air conditioning in school kitchens, which reach very hot temps. Our school food workers have always been essential and have fed our families throughout the crisis. We must get this done.

Thank you to the NYC Parks Department for adding an additional mobi mat at the Ocean Parkway entrance to the beach. I’ve also successfully advocated for a mobi mat near W29th Street in the west end of Coney Island as well. Mobi mats ensure that all of our residents have access to utilize our beaches. Beach season is soon upon us! ☀️ 🏖

More results and more work to do. Here are before and after photos of W6th Street by Neptune Avenue, near the F train stop. My office received complaints of trash piling up and we immediately contacted Wildcat cleaners to help clean up. I’m proud to have secured resources for supplemental cleaning across my district. If a constituent would like to report a location in my district in need of cleaning, please email me details to [email protected]

Thank you to the 62nd Precinct, NYPD Hate Crimes Unit, and ATF for arresting the person responsible for the outrageous anti-Catholic hate crime at St. Athanasius Church in Bensonhurst, which involved the destruction of a crucifix and burning of an American flag. Additional details coming soon, but I’ve learned the person they were looking for has been arrested. Now the District Attorney must prosecute to the fullest extent of the law. No room for hate in NYC.

The mayor and NYPD must hold those who committed vile and violent anti-Semitic attacks against Jews yesterday in the diamond district accountable.

This corridor in Manhattan can trace its roots to European Jews being persecuted for centuries, given limited employment options, and then faced near annihilation in 1940 in Antwerp, Belgium due to N***s. The location of these attacks is no coincidence and holds painful history.

We cannot and will not tolerate hate attacks against any person in our city and that includes the Jewish community.

Council Member Treyger Makes a Move in Southern Brooklyn Delivering Chess in the Schools Program to PS/IS 288 in Coney Island

BROOKLYN, NY -- Expanding active learning opportunities in Southern Brooklyn, Council Member Mark Treyger secured Council funding and advocated to bring the Chess in the Schools program to PS/IS 288 in Coney Island beginning Fall 2021.

Students will learn how to play chess in the classroom and also be able to compete against other students in the after-school program offered by the Chess in the Schools instructors. The innovative chess education program helps students develop critical thinking, good sportsmanship, and social skills through fun in-school and after-school chess education activities.

“Chess is a life-long learning tool and stimulating game that will help students build their critical thinking skills and enhance their academic learning experience. I’m proud to support this program and secure the funding necessary for additional enrichment programs for students and families in Coney Island,” said Council Member Mark Treyger (Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Gravesend, Sea Gate).

The other day while I was near St. Athanasius Church, I recognized my former student Laura Ciccarello who is now a teacher at St. A’s. She’s doing extraordinary work as an educator and I’m so proud of her and all of my former students. Keep up the great work, Laura!

Council Member Mark Treyger Secures $250,000 Investment for Medical Training Room at John Dewey High School

Participating students will receive free college credits from college partners and receive career-based opportunities in hospitals

BROOKLYN, NY -- Today, Council Member Mark Treyger announced that he allocated $250,000 to John Dewey High School for a medical triage classroom. The brand new medical facility will offer training programs to explore careers in healthcare such as EMTs, paramedics and programs to support future nurses. This program will expand the Career and Technical Education (CTE) curriculum offered at the high school to include EMT certification at the time of graduation. The classroom is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2021.

The Pre-Med and Health Academy at John Dewey High School prepares students for college coursework in medical and health care professions. The four-year math-science program culminates with internships at various placements including Maimonides Hospital, the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, and certifications through the American Red Cross. Students graduate with their CPR certification and will now have the opportunity to secure a full EMT certification with job placement assistance upon program completion. The new EMT program will have freshmen students begin a pre-med four-year sequence in the EMT program, and during their junior and senior year, JDHS is hopeful they will receive CTE certification along with college credits for the coursework, provided the NYC Department of Education accepts this new program into their CTE portfolio.

Beginning in September 2021, John Dewey High School will partner with Staten Island EMT to train and certify students with an EMT certificate in the four-year pre-med and health program and also students who are not initially part of the four-year sequence that wish to become an EMT will be welcomed into this program during their junior year at John Dewey High School. This significant investment will help support the health and science program at John Dewey High School and help them to create an approved CTE program in the very near future; building on Council Member Treyger’s investment of a medical training room at Grady High School for future nurses, furthering a pipeline for in-demand jobs and careers.

“I’m proud to support this exciting real-life learning opportunity for students. During their high school experience, they will be able to become trained and certified EMTs and be prepared to enter the workforce upon graduation. This is a game-changing program for our students in Southern Brooklyn and I look forward to cutting the ribbon on the brand new medical triage classroom that will provide a strong learning foundation for students interested in the medical and health fields,” said Council Member Mark Treyger (Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Gravesend, Sea Gate).

“Throughout my career I have always worked to serve the children of south Brooklyn in the best way I knew how. I know that what our children need is real-life experiences and job training to help them secure a career for their futures. It is with great pride that we are taking the steps necessary to offer every opportunity possible to our children through enhancing our Career Ready programs; specifically developing an EMT certification program here at John Dewey High School. It is our goal to give our students a foundation to build upon as they pursue their futures and a means to reach their life goals,” said Connie Hamilton, Principal, John Dewey High School.
