Earlier today, neighborhood dignitaries took part in a “groundbreaking” event at the Educational Alliance, which has just begun a $45 million gut renovation of its flagship building at 197 East Broadway. Pictured above: (L-R) State Senator Daniel Squadron, Judy Rapfogel (Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver’s chief of staff), Richard Cantor (chair of the renovation capital project), Educational Alliance President & CEO Robin Bernstein, Board Chair Russell Makowsky and U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney. You’re looking at the brick breaking ceremony that concluded the day’s events. More to come later this week.
A very sad day for the famous Ed Alliance ART SCHOOL which will be relocated to the basement in small rooms with small windows. What a way to treat a so-called “flagship “and historic art-making space.
