Julie Stein-Brockway, who leads a task force that pressed for the new Sunset Park High SchoolBrooklyn, praised the "perserverance of a community and a community board." in
"This struggle for a public high school began more than 38 years ago and no one has given up," she said. "It is truly a thrill, and more important has been not only getting the physical building that we wanted so desperately, but getting a quality institution inside this building."* The Culver Community Garden weblog has excellent renditions of what they hope will happen very soon. The rally is this Saturday at Noon.
* CB 7 has sent in its supportive missive for a stop sign on 6th Ave and 23rd Street. (from Gowanus Lounge) Let's hope it's more successful than when the same process was used to try to install stop signs on 6th Avenue at 41st and 44th Streets. You can still sign the petition for the 41st/44th signs here. It's almost a year old, and we've been working on it for two years now!
