The Stephan Gaynor School
 West 89th and West 90th Street

The Stephen Gaynor School, a non profit organization, provides a unique educational experience for children ages 5-14 with learning differences in a nurturing environment where children are helped to reach their academic potential. At Stephen Gaynor the pattern of academic failure is broken and children are taught to become successful learners with unlimited potential.
The historic Claremont Riding Academy building was supposed to be converted to condos, the units were supposed to give the feeling of a barn. The market turned and the condo developers sold the building for $12 million to the Stephen Gaynor School, which is located behind Claremont on 90th Street. The developers bought the building for $14 million in 2007.

Abraham Joshua Heschel School


The Abraham Joshua Heschel School was founded in 1983, a new model of Jewish day school was created. An independent school offering a pluralistic approach to Jewish learning in addition to secular studies. Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. 

Congregation B'nai Jeshurun recently purchased the building at 270 West 89th Street from the Abraham Joshua Heschel School for $20 million. The trade symbolizes growth for two Jewish institutions on the Upper West Side. B'nai Jeshurun had rented space in the building from Heschel for its Hebrew School since 1984, when B'nai Jeshurun sold the building to Heschel.

Back to School: Manhattan Colleges and Universities

1 comments
With a little help from their parents many new freshman NYU students moved into their Greenwich Village dorms this week, while a similar scenario took place at Morningside Heights as Columbia University students begin moving in to their dorms at Columbia University.

Both NYU and Columbia have been building real estate empires in their respective Manhattan neighborhoods. Both private non profit institutions have real estate holdings worth more than half a billion dollars. Both schools have been buying building and developing real estate to house students, faculty and expand their prestigious institutions.

New York City is an acedemic capital of the world and attracts students from all over the country and globe to its many fine colleges and Universities.

For many students coming from all over the country and world, Labor Day will be their first weekend living in the city. To all the new students entering NYU, Columbia and all the other fine undergraduate, graduate, law schools and med schools throughout NYC, I wish you all much success.

Parents from all over the country and abroad are investing in Manhattan real estate while their children are attending schools here. Many parents are buying condos for their adult children and for themselves and other family members. For many it is a great investment. Children get housing while in school and starting their careers, the parents get a great asset and a pied-a-terre in Manhattan.
