To Erect Houses On Former Yeshiva Lot (Vol. 2, Issue 11)

A four unit apartment house will be constructed on the Amsterdam Avenue lit formerly owned by Yeshiva. Excavations and blasting is scheduled to begin this Monday morning.

The lot, which extends two blocks north from West 190th Street, and [illegible] from Amsterdam Avenue to the Harlem River, was originally scheduled to sustain an additional group of buildings, including the Library, the Seminary, and the Physical Education structures. The lot was sold at auction last summer after the foreclosure of the mortgage.

At present, no further expansion along construction [illegible] is being contemplated, according to Samuel L. Sar, secretary if the institution.
