So that people could...
Currently the 2 schools, Brooklyn School for Collaborative Studies (grades 6012) and Brooklyn New School (grades pre-k-5) don't have enough gym space to meet PE mandates and HS graduation requirements for 1400 students, aged 4 -18. Putting a gym on the lower roof would more than double the gym space within the current footprint of the building. A second gym would also be a community resources because our gym are also used by a variety of local leagues, whenever the schools are not using it.
The upper green roof and eco-classroom would provide a teaching resource for both schools and the community. It would include a weather station for the BCS Climate Change course, stations for plant and drainage experiments, and a space for student and local adult artists to draw and paint our urban landscape. The roof classroom could be a space for community events and celebrations - both for the school and other groups.
