This seems to be another symptom of how the city shoves plans through without paying attention to what communities really want. Sound familiar? Remember the meeting we had at PS15 where community members opposed having PAVE stuck in our school, and the DOE decided to go through with it anyway because there wasn't enough (according to them) community opposition to the plan?
