As we mentioned last week, 110 new apartments in a 1908 school building at 371 Madison Street will officially hit the market in the next couple of weeks.  But there’s already been quite a bit of activity inside the Madison Jackson building. The weekend before last, for example, a reunion was held in the former P.S. 12, which has not functioned as a school since the early 80’s.

Michael Bolla, the creative consultant and real estate broker responsible for the condo conversion, organized the reunion for around 50 graduates from the classes of 1958-1962.  He got the idea after fielding phone calls from former students curious about the project. The school building was abandoned by the city decades ago and sold at auction to Chinatown banker Thomas Sung.
