Public Hearing Scheduled For Proposed School At Former White Castle Headquarters

Aug. 7, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

A public hearing is scheduled in Manhattan next week for the proposed site of a new elementary school on the Jackson Heights/Woodside border.

The hearing will take place on Tuesday at 250 Broadway in Manhattan, 16th Floor. The agenda, which includes other proposals for schools in Ozone Park, Brooklyn and Staten Island, kicks off at 11 a.m.

If approved, the proposed 450-seat elementary school would sit at 69-01 34th Ave., the former site of White Castle’s regional headquarters. Community Board 3 approved the building plan in May.

The school would serve grades pre-K through five.

According to School Construction Authority documents, the school is expected to open its doors in 2019.

JUST LIKE THEY GOT THE NEW WOOSIDE SCHOOL WRONG ON 58 STREET, WHEN WOODSIDE/SUNNYSIDE NEEDS ITS OWN MIDDLE SCHOOL FOR YEARS, THEY BUILD ANOTHER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. SO TWO NEW BUILDINGS WITHOUT A MIDDDLE SCHOOL.

The site should be for a MIDDLE SCHOOL not another elementary school. Once again, the Department of Education at Tweed got it wrong!
