The Liberty Street School is just a little closer to being rehabilitated! New scaffolding is up, and now it has a brand new roof. Neighbors have reported seeing men working at the school as well as debris being brought out. Unfortunately the original roof was slate. But this is a rehab, not a restoration. And for the sake of the entire structure costs probably had to be cut, and a new slate roof wasn’t possible.
The rehabilitation of the Liberty Street School is very important to the Liberty Street/Washington HQ’s corridor, as well as the revitalization of the Heights neighborhood.

Im glad they are rebuilding the school I attended there in the 70s and my father owned the store next to it!
That’s so awesome Paul. Do you have any old pictures of the store?
