In Public Service: Weinstein one of Assembly’s longstanding members
Assemblymember Helene Weinstein has an interesting collection of pens in her district office on Nostrand Avenue. But they’re not just any pens. Framed and hanging on a wall, the pens signify her longevity and her clout in the state Legislature.
The pens were used by governors to sign into law bills that Weinstein had sponsored. Each governor, upon signing the bill, would give Weinstein the pen. She had the pens framed, along with the legislation.
Weinstein has more than 100 of these framed pens in her Brooklyn district office and in her office in Albany.
