BY LINCOLN ANDERSON | Updated Nov. 20, 12:30 a.m.: It took a while — nine long years of back and forth — but the city has finally agreed to create a public school at a long-targeted site on Bleecker Street.

On Nov. 9, Nina Kubota, president and C.E.O. of the city’s School Construction Authority, sent an official “school election notice” letter to Lynne Brown, New York University’s senior vice president of university relations and public affairs, announcing that “Zoning Lot 3” on N.Y.U.’s southern superblock had been designed for a new school.
