NEW YORK (AP/ 1010 WINS) -- The City University of New York Law School is getting a new home in Queens.
CUNY said in a statement released Tuesday that its Board of Trustees approved the law school's relocation to the Court Square neighborhood of Long Island City, a move that will give the school nearly 70,000 additional square feet of space.
The 26-year-old law school, currently in Flushing, Queens will relocate to the first six floors of a 14-story green building.
CUNY will own a condominium interest in those floors. Citigroup will retain ownership of the remainder of the building.
CUNY says the new site will be ready in time for the start of Fall 2011 classes.
