After One of The Roughest Winters In Recent Memory, PS 31 Still Stands In The Bronx

On November 8, 2013, New York City’s Department of Buildings issued an emergency demolition order for the landmarked ‘Castle on the Concourse’ aka PS 31. They cited it as a public safety issue and were concerned that it wouldn’t survive another Sandy-like weather event.

After a winter with record snowfalls and several buildings suffering major roof collapses due to the tremendous weight of all that snow, PS 31 still stands.

Just a few short blocks from where the Grand Concourse begins, that boulevard of dreams, sits PS 31.
