On Sept. 24, students and faculty from East Side Community School and Girls Prep Charter on East 12th Street evacuated the building when a maintenance worker found part of the eastern wall separating from the rest of the structure.
Looks now as if the students and teachers will be away for some time. Per NY1 last night:
It's not just the eastern wall, which officials say needs to be completely rebuilt, starting with the steel. The western wall also needs to be secured. They hope to finish by late February, move students back in and then replace the brick exterior after hours and on the weekends.
You can see the extent of the work in Bobby's photo.
And I wonder what all this does to the timeline on the sale and development of the Mary Help of Christians property...
