Schools Needed NOW in Sunset Park

Last month eight sites were identified as possible locations for new school buildings in Sunset Park, where current schools are severely overcrowded.   The School Construction Authority is expected to report back early this year with a shortlist of viable locations.  One of the sites identified is the former Sunny 39 Hotel, which was closed down last year after operating as a brothel.  While the SCA and local officials have deemed the 39th Street hotel as a largely unsuitable site for a school, many parents & community members are still hoping it can be converted for educational purposes.
