At long last, the eyesore is out, now a sight for sore eyes.
After nearly three years of buzzing the block into sleepless nights and restless mornings, looks like the exterior renovation of the Seward Park High School building at 350 Grand Street is drawing to a close. Scaffolding and netting were deposed from the entire south exposure yesterday with more likely to follow in the coming days.
The makeover project – new windows, parapets, and roof installation – tortured area residents from the start in September 2013. Drilling, knocking, and banging noise was an aural assault, though par for the course. Its imminent end is roughly six months behind schedule, as you might guess. This despite the endless series of after-hours variances with the Department of Buildings for extracurricular activity (extended work hours to midnight on weekdays).
Finally, we have our building back. Clean for the first time in recent memory.
