  1. 89 Murray and 101 Warren are in the same school zone. Maybe this is obvious, but this application is for the 20% below market rate rentals. You can go to Related’s website for market rate prices.

  2. Too bad the slideshow on what BPC used to be doesn’t have shots of the wheatfield, or of people skiing after a huge snowstorm–the only time (I think) I was allowed into to Windows on the World in jeans, and my husband without a jacket. Maybe someone, somewhere, does?

  3. 89 Murray is a mixed rental space, with below market rate availability, median income availability, and market rate availability. There is only ONE school zone for the two buildings for elementary, that of PS 234, which is immensely overcrowded accompanied by long waitlists to get in.
