Groundbreaking at Coney Island Head Start

Ground was broken on Catholic Charities Charles F. Murphy Early Childhood Development Center today.

Located in the heart of Coney Island, this new 16,730 square foot facility will replace a former childhood development center destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.

This new facility will be a critical provider of pre-K education for the neighborhood and, being raised well above the base flood elevation, it will provide safe harbor to the community in the event of another storm. As a symbol of a revitalized neighborhood, the center is designed to promote community visibility, civic awareness, and connectivity through large classroom windows and circulation spaces.
