    Considering the one and two family homes in the area of this development and also the narrow streets that surround this site I find this project to be excessively high. Phipps never made any effort to get the community involved . As a matter of fact the community found out after they got the project approved by the Community Board and the Borough President Office. There were no community leaders there to testify on behave or against this project. They are eliminating a 90 car garage and there is no garage as part of the building. They are more concern on providing space for a charter school . The entrance to the charter school is going to be right in front of PS 157 entrance which is going to make traffic , pedestrian and motorize, more difficult. None of this was taken in consideration. Also the Brownfield clean up is going to be done while the children at PS157 are attending school. Leaders requested for them to conduct a safe clean up where a tend or dome is located in the site and no contaminants are release in the air. They dont consider this neccesary even though there are a large number of students at 157 that suffer respiratory problems including asthma.
