Save old P.S. 64, 605 E. 9th Street
GVSHP, the East Village Community Coalition (EVCC), and City Councilmember Rosie Mendez, among others, testified against the application before the Landmarks Preservation Commission for changes to this individually landmarked building east of Avenue B as part of a plan to convert it to a 500+ bed dorm. GVSHP has also written to the Department of Buildings urging that they not approve the dorm conversion plan, which would violate DOB rules and oversaturate the East Village with college dormitories.
GVSHP is working with EVCC, Councilmember Mendez, and other concerned groups to oppose this plan and ensure that the former school and former Charas/El Bohio Cultural Center is returned to community use. We will be co-sponsoring a rally and march on May 15.
