Crane Blocking Street - Here Today Gone Tomorrow

   At the June Community Board 8 Land Use meeting the Fieldston School located on Manhattan College Parkway surrounded by Riverdale Avenue, West 238th Street, and Greystone Avenue told the Land Use Committee of its plans to expand the school's Greystone Avenue building. This would mean the loss of parking on Greystone Avenue to be replaced by an equal amount of parking spaces on the school property. As you can see in the photo below that was not the case. In a letter to neighbors the school sent out dated August 1, 2016 the school said that Greystone Avenue would be completely closed from August 2nd to August 8th due to the construction.

There seem to have been complaints made to the community board, and as of this morning you can see that Greystone Avenue is once again open, and the huge crane is no where to be found.
