Nosy Neighbor: When Will Those Trailers on West Street Go Away?

With the opening of Fiterman Hall, will the classroom trailers along West Street finally go away? They were brought in as a temporary measure after 9/11 and have been there for over ten years. —C.

“That’s the plan,” said Barry Rosen, BMCC’s executive director of public and external affairs. Fiterman Hall, for those of you who aren’t aware, is the building going up between Greenwich and W. Broadway, Park and Barclay—that’s it pictured at right—and it’s due to open in time for the fall 2012 semester. As for the trailers, as much as I don’t think they look great, I kind of enjoy walking on the wooden boardwalk.
