Last week’s article about a prematurely unearthed time capsule suggested that local activist Peter Killen was against the idea of reburying it on private property (“Capsule unearthed 46 years early,” Sept. 29). The comment was actually made by Councilman Vince Gentile (D–Bay Ridge).
Killen is actually in talks with the new owner of the former Bay Ridge Funeral Home site, where the time capsule was originally buried, in hopes of a reburial. The Brooklyn Paper regrets the error.
Also, our story about Councilman Domenic Recchia’s challenge to incumbent Rep. Vito Fossella (“Recchia seeks Fossella’s seat, but he’d have to move to get it”) inaccurately said that Recchia, who lives outside the district he hopes to represent, would have to move if elected. That is not the case. Members of the House of Representatives need only live in the state in which their district sits, not in the district itself. The Brooklyn Paper regrets the error.
