“No Standing” Zone Approved in Front of Comprehensive Kids School

383 Grand Street.

A follow-up on a story we reported earlier this month. This week, Community Board 3 approved a request from Comprehensive Kids Development School for a “no standing” zone at 383 Grand Street.

School administrators said they were concerned about the safety of students, who must navigate parked cars to get from school buses to the facility, located in the Seward Park Cooperative.  The school serves special education students.  At Tuesday night’s meeting, parents spoke in support of the proposal. Several children, including one in a wheelchair, were also in attendance.

A community board member, Rabbi Yissachar Ginzberg, had submitted a letter saying the “no standing” zone would be an “undue hardship” for the community.  Ginzberg was not present at this week’s meeting (he’s traveling overseas) and there was no mention of his letter before the vote.

The “no standing” zone will be in effect weekdays from 8 a.m.-10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. in front of 383 Grand.

 

Rabbi Opposes “No Standing Zone” in Front of Grand Street School

Buses pull up along Grand Street to drop kids off at the Comprehensive Kids School.

The staff of the Comprehensive Kids Development School, located at 383 Grand Street, say they’re increasingly concerned about a less than ideal, and potentially dangerous, situation alongside their Lower East Side campus.  Each morning and afternoon, special education preschool students and their parents must navigate parked cars to get to and from the school.  This week,  they asked Community Board 3’s transportation committee to support their request to create a “No Standing” zone along Grand, just to the east of Norfolk Street.
