The Educational Alliance held a ground breaking celebration on Tuesday, Nov. 22 at its flagship building, located at 197 East Broadway. The 122-year-old nonprofit kicked off its first-ever gut renovation this month – with the goal of creating the quintessential urban community center. In attendance at the celebration were U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney, NY State Senator Daniel Squadron as well as representatives from the Alliance.
The renovation project will preserve the Alliance’s historic flagship building’s exterior while completely rebuilding the interior. According to the organization, the goal is to transform the building from a deteriorating, inefficient community service facility into the Lower East Side’s quintessential urban community center, to serve families for the next century and beyond.
