THE BRONX - A 116-year-old landmark Victorian structure in the Bronx has been slated for demolition.
Known as the "Castle on the Concourse," the Mott Haven building, which used to be the home of P.S. 31, has now been deemed a hazard to public safety.
The city-owned structure once boasted stained glass windows and arches, but it's been boarded up and crumbling with falling debris for years.
Officials are accepting proposals to use the empty space as an affordable mixed-use housing unit, but they plan to also meet with residents in the coming months for suggestions.
Many community leaders are upset that the borough will lose a historic building, and say they'd prefer to see it salvaged and renovated.
