Educational Alliance Moving Forward on Major Upfit

Sidewalk repairs preceded the renovations at 197 E. Broadway; the real work starts next month.

Leaders at the Educational Alliance have sent us an update to last month’s big news about their major capital project. In an email to supporters, administrators at the 122-year-old institution unveiled a new website and an update on the planning process for the overhaul and modernization of their flagship building at 197 E. Broadway, which is scheduled to start in November:

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that the renovation has been officially approved by the Board of Trustees and we’re moving forward with our plans to create the quintessential urban community center.

Silver, Squadron, Chin Attend Seward Park Info Fair

On a cold and rainy evening, the Lower East Side's key political leaders and representatives from many of the neighborhood's non-profit organizations descended on a meeting room at the Seward Park Co-op last night for a neighborhood information fair. 

State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, State Senator Daniel Squadron and Margaret Chin, the Democratic nominee for City Council, all made appearances at the event, sponsored by the Seward Park Co-op, but open to the public.
