Crane Pick

Saint David's closed 89th Street yesterday to pick several chiller units off a flat bed truck and lift them to the roof of Buildings 14 and 16.

Shown above is a view of the crane over the school with Central Park in the background. 
You might also notice in the bottom right of the photo the almost total demolition of the rear portion of Graham House almost to the ground floor. The stair and elevator core can be seen still intact running the vertical length of Building 16, as well as the facade of Graham still intact. All is on schedule. 
Below are a series of close up photographs of the chiller units being lowered into place. 



Concrete Progress

Demolition of Graham House is moving along well, with completion on target for summer's end.

This aerial shot shows the imprint of the area that will encompass our new large, middle school regulation-size gymnasium.  The section marked 1 is the air shaft,  which we are filling in from the ground up.

The #2 arrow gives you an idea of the size of the gym, which will run nearly the length of the building from North to South. The width will span the entire rear portion of Graham House to the #3 arrow, which approximates the location of the fixed bleacher seating. It is exciting to imagine that this space will, in the not too distant future, be filled with the sounds and sights of our boys playing sports.

Additional photos of the ongoing work follow.
