Three cheers to Lewis Kobak, the man of the hour, and of the playground. The good citizens at Brigham Co-op honored Lew for his 56-plus years of “dedicated service and many valuable contributi­ons” as general manager, said Amanda Mercado, property manager at FirstService Residential. She added, “During my nearly 30 years as a board member, I have been impressed by Lew’s integrity, honesty, leadership, attention to detail and by his tremendous efforts to help make Brigham Park 4 the best it could be.”

Ed Goldman, board president; Ellen Sue Borah, board secretary; and Mark Levine, board vice president all gathered to place the plaque bearing Lew’s name at the playground.

Mercado explained that Lew keeps the buildings in good repair, “While most co-ops spend thousands of dollars on hired professionals to work on projects, Lew has spent many tireless hours taking on most of these tasks himself.”

So here is to you, Lew — how many people can say they have a park and playground named after them and a Standing O, too?

Brigham Co-op (2250 Brigham St. at Avenue W in Sheepshead Bay).
