Fiterman is Funded

Mayor Michael Bloomberg and State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver deliver good news that Fiterman Hall will be rebuilt.


Decontamination Plan for Fiterman Hall Approved
“We are pleased that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the decontamination plan for Fiterman Hall of the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) in downtown Manhattan.

“This will enable this important project to move forward. I would like to thank all the federal, state and city officials who have been working with the EPA and, especially, New York State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver. Speaker Silver played a critical role in opening a dialogue between downtown residents, community leaders and all parties involved in the deconstruction and remediation process. We look forward to continuing this ongoing dialogue.

“Our goal continues to be to take the damaged building down safely and to replace it with a new facility. This will meet both the educational needs of BMCC’s student body — currently 20,000 students — and the community of lower Manhattan, which is looking for continued progress in the post-9/11 rebuilding of their community.”

-Chancellor Goldstein

On Friday, March 23, 2007, the EPA approved Fiterman Hall Scaffold Plans. Airtek Environmental Corp., the environmental consultant for the project, has installed air monitors and started the required two - week background sampling period. After sampling results from this period have been reviewed by the EPA, we anticipate the work to install the scaffold will commence in mid-April.
