☞ REVIVE: An Update on PS 186

Thursday, July 18th, 6:30PM, Community Board 9 Land Use Meeting at the Broadway Housing Building, 583 Riverside Drive by 135th Street, 7th floor gallery. The Land Use and Zoning Committee at CB9 will be hosting the Boys and Girls Club this month in a community board meeting that will update everyone on any progress made with the PS 186 School site.  As most know by now, the school on West 145th Street was abandoned decades ago and the nonprofit has been promising to restore the historic building since the 80s.  Financing for the $79.3 million project which would include 90 affordable housing units was supposed to happen by the end of 2012 but permits for construction have not been filed yet.   Harlem School of the Arts will also be introducing their preliminary plans for the site adjacent to their building on St. Nicholas Avenue at this meeting.


  1. What's the address for the CB Land Use meeting on 135th St? BTW, the meeting isn't listed on the CB9 web site. Thanks.

  2. 583 Riverside Drive by 135th Street. The location is a little odd and out of the way in our opinion but the meeting room is decent. Just tell the lobby attendant that you are there for the meeting. We received details directly from CB9 members.
