Local leaders call for more classroom space

THE BRONX - Community leaders rallied Tuesday to ask for four new schools to be built near the Kingsbridge Armory.

The planned site for the new schools is at a 195th Street building beside the Armory. Leaders are calling for the immediate relocation of the National Guard from the buildings to an alternative site in Wakefield.

Community leaders say they need the new schools to address overcrowding.
