Return P.S. 64 to the Community

evcc images 007_smThe Department of Buildings is currently reviewing an application to convert former P.S. 64/ Charas into a 500-bed dormitory. The Cooper Union has entered into an agreement with the developer to take a portion of the building for student housing. We reject the proposal to use P.S 64 as a dorm.

COMMUNITY USE – NOT DORMS

Sign on to demand that the building be returned to the community!

Return PS64 to the Community

Respect our community. Respect this community treasure: Old P.S. 64

located at 605 East 9th Street.

Old P.S. 64, a designated New York City landmark, has a long and valued

history serving our community. This building could easily serve our

community again. Dormitory use of this building does not serve our

community. Cooper Union should not house  students in old P.S. 64.

We ask that old P.S. 64 be returned to use for our community.
