City Council Vote Seals P.S. 133's Fate


Despite the valiant efforts of a number of concerned citizens and preservation-oriented groups (Park Slope Civic Council, Park Slope Neighbors, the Fifth Avenue Committee, the Historic Districts Council, Baltic Street Community Garden, Green Guerrillas; the Flatbush Gardener, New York City Community Garden Coalition), the City Council yesterday voted to support School Construction Authority's plan to demolish the historic building that currently houses PS 133 in Park Slope in order to build a new facility from scratch. The full council vote overwhelmingly went along with the wishes of Council Member Yassky to support the demolition; only Council Members Avella, Barron, James and Mendez opposed the plan. What a waste.
