Revitalizing a Community Cornerstone in Harlem

A 100+ year old former school is being converted into a mixed-income mixed-use development in Harlem. Public School 186’s original Italian Renaissance Revival style exterior will be restored, along with character-defining interior features, and the historic building will find a new life as The Residences at PS186 and a new Boys & Girls Club facility.

Today, the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development Commissioner Vicki Been joined the Boys & Girls Club of Harlem, Monadnock Development, and Alembic Community Development to celebrate the start of construction on the redevelopment of PS 186 into 78 units of affordable housing and a new Harlem Boys and Girls Club in Manhattan. The adaptive reuse of the dilapidated site is one of the first affordable housing deals financed under Mayor de Blasio’s Housing New York: A Five-Borough, 10-Year Housing Plan.
