The Brooklyn Paper brings us this tidbit regarding City Councilman David Yassky’s idea to make the planned P.S. 8 annex a middle school too:
Brooklyn Paper: Heights Elementary…: Councilman David Yassky (D–Brooklyn Heights) even said this week that he’d change city law to circumvent the developer’s controversial 18-story residential tower — despite the 300-seat middle school that Walentas would include.
Yassky said the city’s goal should be to maximize the annex’s size to allow for a full-scale middle school on the PS 8 site.
“My goal will be to have it as large as possible,” Yassky said. “I’d be open to changing the zoning to allow more space if it would make PS 8 K-through-8.”
