☞ MEET: Public Hearing on West 129th Street
LINK. The Land Use Committee will hold a public hearing on the following matters in the 8th Floor Conference Room of the Adam Clayton Powell State Office Building (163 West 125th Street), commencing at 6:30 PM on Thursday December 16th.
The lower graphic shows the positioning of the new Harlem Children's Zone complex that will be constructed which will eliminate a playground at the end of the cul-de-sac that currently exist at 129th Street. The middle photos shows one of the other four playgrounds that will remain on the complex within half a block of the displaced one. NYCHA has been in a deficit for many years now and this new development might remove a playground, but will also subsidize the public housing in the area and will provide its residents with a high ranking charter school.
