New high school to be built in LIC
From DNA Info:
The city will construct a new high school with room for nearly 1,000 students in Dutch Kills, according to the Department of Education.
The new school, a four-story building set to include 969 seats, will rise at 40-11 28th St. between 40th and 41st avenues, a DOE spokesman said.
In addition to classrooms, the facility will include a gymnasium, library, cafeteria and kitchen, according to plans from School Construction Authority filed with the Department of Buildings Friday.
The school, which does not yet have a name, will be located right next door to the existing Newcomers High School and down the block from the Academy of American Studies, another high school.
