In order to comply with Bloomberg’s plaNYC, the school needs to change out the boiler from oil to gas. PS 87 has been on a waiting list for windows for over 15 years. Many windows have cracks and/or holes. Some cannot open or close. Linda Rosenthal advocated for PS 87 to be moved up on the list after the school had been requesting replacement for years. The roof has had to be repaired multiple times over the past few years, so it was determined that it needed to be replaced as well. The roof insulation will also be updated for better heating and cooling efficiency. In the interest of efficiency, necessary work on the roof, windows, and boiler will be done at the same time.
