MAKE SURE NOT TO SEND YOUR KIDS TO THESE SCHOOLS
Disputed school plan’s OKd. By Frank Lombardi, NY Daily News
The 45-to-0 approval of the site came after Council officials hammered out additional safety measures and assurances with the Bloomberg administration – beyond those in the city’s original $30 million cleanup plan for the site.
The $230 million school campus will be shared by two high schools, a combination high school-intermediate school, and a charter school for grades 5 through 8.
Though it’s being called the Mott Haven School Campus, the complex is to be built on a 6.6-acre tract of vacant land that is technically in the Concourse Village-Melrose area.
The site had been used as a railroad yard for more than a century. Toxic contaminants were found there and at adjoining tracts that had housed a gas manufacturing plant and a gasoline station.
