School 'Not Allowed' in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Robert Levine of RAL Development Services, who had offered space for a middle school at One Brooklyn Bridge Park on the waterfront in Brooklyn Heights, has withdrawn the offer, according to the Brooklyn Eagle.

Levine said that "a school is not allowed within the approved General Project Plan" for Brooklyn Bridge Park.

The Eagle had reported RAL’s offer following a public hearing before the Borough President on the Dock Street Dumbo project last week when a speaker indicated that several other locations for a middle school were available.

Odd how more than a thousand residential units could be approved for the park, but not a school.
