Queens borough to get 23,000 in added classroom capacity

March 12, 2008
Increase represents 35 percent of the new classroom space in New York City

The Queens borough of New York City will get a host of new schools this fall. The boon will add 23,000 new seats to the borough and accounts for 35 percent of all the city's new schools this year. The elementary and middle schools will open in both new buildings and re-utilized older schools that are being phased out. Only 290 of the new seats will be "reclaimed"--that is, space that already existed but is being moved elsewhere.
