At the time I took this photo (October 19, 2012), I had passed by this building every day for more than three weeks. This was the first time I paid attention to it.
This is the main entrance to the school my son was transferred to when his school was evacuated due to an outside wall separating from the rest of the building. That’s what happens when you build on a swamp!
I don’t have a lot to say about it now. If I had written this back when I took the photo, I probably would have written about how the DOE representatives had proposed sending the middle school kids to Norman Thomas High School in midtown, along with the high school students, and the uproar that ensued, and how the DOE claimed that there was no space anywhere in District 1, but then found an entire floor of an elementary school in Chinatown. Something like that.
I find it difficult to maintain a blog. There are some that I read — just general ones I’m referring to, not political ones, that people get paid to write, or promote themselves through — and I wonder how the writer manages to keep it up. It’s like I’m writing in a journal, and when I’m finished, I close the cover and put it into my bottom drawer. I don’t know what I’m looking for with this. Maybe I should post more often.
Anyway, if you’re interested — if you’re still reading this — the kids are moving back to their school in two weeks.
