Markowitz to the Aid of Brooklyn Children's Academy Preschool Families

A reader emailed this cell phone photo of one of the many Brooklyn Children's Academy Preschool bus shelter ads "popping up like mushrooms" around Downtown Brooklyn lately.

This particular bus shelter is just steps away from Borough Hall, where Borough President Markowitz said he's contacted the state Attorney General in an effort to help Boerum Hill's "toxic preschool" parents collect, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

The preschool was closed in November after parents dropping off their kids discovered exposed wires, unpainted walls and noxious fumes. This was after the school moved to 25 Dean St. from Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights. Since then families have been waiting for roughly $70,000 worth of refunds.

The People's Court TV program has apparently been in touch with the elusive director of the school, Andy Lewis, but he rejected the option of having his bookkeeping methods explored on nationwide TV.
