A Bespoke reader sent in the above photo showing some sort of construction activity at the site of PS186 which has been abandoned for 27 years.  Another reader soon after mentioned that they talked to one of the workers while passing by this section of 145th Street just east of Broadway and were told that the crew was set up for asbestos abatement at the historic schoolhouse.  This is somewhat a good sign since one would have guessed getting rid of asbestos would have been a priority over a decade ago so maybe Hamilton Heights will finally see the building restored within a 30 year time period.  Check out the final rendering in our past post: LINK
