The Department of Education has revised its plan for rezoning Park Slope schools and plans to present its new proposal tonight at a public meeting, according to DNAinfo. Under the revised plan, proposed changes for P.S. 10 and P.S. 107 would remain, but the DOE has redrawn the boundaries for P.S. 321 and P.S. 39. Specifically, the blocks from Seventh Avenue to Prospect Park West between 4th and 5th streets would go back to P.S. 321 as they were before. But P.S. 321′s zone would not include the blocks west of 5th Avenue between President and 1st Street, which would feed into the new elementary school to be located in the former St. Thomas Aquinas school building on 8th Street and 4th Avenue. P.S. 39 won’t change a bit. (Above, a map of the old plan.) Some parents have objected the proposed rezoning will lower their property values, while others have criticized the citywide policy of allowing students to remain at a school after they move out of a neighborhood. Naturally, the new boundary lines do not address the latter issue. The District 15 Community Education Council plans to vote on the proposal Nov. 28. Meanwhile, tonight’s meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the John Jay Educational Campus at 237 7th Avenue. What do you think? Do the new proposed boundaries seem any more fair than before? Or likely to relieve Park Slope’s school overcrowding problem?

This large one-bedroom co-op at The Griffin in Fort Greene just hit the market with an asking price of $749,000. It’s a nice apartment on the eighth floor with good light and views as well as solid prewar credentials. We’d guess that this would have to be some kind of price record for a one-bedroom […]
This three-bedroom near the Navy Yard is reasonably priced and close to Fort Greene Park.

We stopped by 88 Richardson Street the other day, and lo and behold, the building is almost up to its full seven stories.

This one-story garage at 564 St. Johns Place between Franklin and Classon in Crown Heights will be demolished soon and replaced by a Karl Fischer-designed eight-story apartment building. A demolition application was filed on Monday, but the DOB didn’t approve it because the filing lacked a plan exam. Developer Rabsky Group is behind the development, […]
A mixed-use development is in the works for part of a very large empty site on Myrtle Avenue across from the Marcy Houses in Bed Stuy, New York NIMBY reported.
