Any Ideas for New School Locations in Sunset Park?

For the full article, click on the following link from The Brooklyn Heights Courier:

The School Construction Authority and city Department of Education (DOE) “rely heavily” on local residents for tips about possible [new school] locations, Kenrick Ou, SCA’s director of real estate, explained at a recent meeting of District 15’s Community Education Council (CEC).

“A lot of the challenge is the size of the property,” Ou said. “We would need 40,000 square feet,” he explained. “That’s very difficult to find.”

The SCA and DOE are looking to build new schools in several Brooklyn neighborhoods, including Bay Ridge, Park Slope and Sunset Park.

“Sunset Park has been a very challenging neighborhood for us to site in,” Ou explained.

The SCA can be reached at 718-472-8000.
