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.
