☞ REVIVE: National Dance Institute at PS90

One of the goals for the adaptive reuse condo conversion of the formerly abandoned PS90 building in Central Harlem was also to have a community space established and it now looks like one will finally arrive.  The Wall Street Journal reports that the National Dance Institute has finally found a permanent home after 34 years and that the new residence is indeed in Harlem.  A total of 18,000-square-foot of space inside the converted schoolhouse at 220 West 148th Street has been sold for $6 million this past week to the organization known for providing dance education and courses to public schools.  The National Dance Institute focuses on low-income neighborhoods and the fact that it is now located in a former New York school building is all the more fitting.  Read more details in the Wall Street Journal: LINK.  For more details on the PS90 building, check out our past post: LINK
