Community Board 4’s land use committee will see a revised design proposal for the P.S. 51 Affordable Housing Site, on 44th/45th Streets between 10th and 11th Avenues at its meeting next week. After much delay, this project is moving forward quicker than ever before.
WSNA has long campaigned to get what we need on that site: the 600 affordable apartments we were promised, and a new school for the P.S. 51 students, at a reasonable density that fits in our community.
This Wednesday, join P.S. 51 parents, staff, and concerned neighborhood residents to find out what the developer is proposing. Come with us to the land use committee meeting, and don’t be afraid to speak up for the community’s priorities on the P.S. 51 site.
The P.S. 51 site public presentation is on Wednesday, January 14th, at the Red Cross building: 520 West 49th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues.
We’re also having a phonebanking pizza party on Monday, Jan. 12th to invite our neighbors to attend the meeting next Wednesday. Can you help us make calls and share a slice of cheese (or two or three) with us? That will be at HCC from 6-8:30pm this coming Monday: 777 10th Ave between 52nd and 53rd St.
Please RSVP to Lucas at HCC if you can come: LShapiro@hcc-nyc.org or 212-716-1664.
