Just as AvalonBay Communities wraps up its big Brooklyn tower in Downtown Brooklyn, the developer has filed new building applications for a 33-story development at 1865 Broadway, just north of Columbus Circle on the Upper West Side.
The Orthodox community in Borough Park is one of the city’s fastest growing groups, and they’re building plenty of schools to educate their children.
