He spoke at a crowded informational meeting Monday about moving his private school of about 300 girls to the site on Demarest Avenue.
“We are not here to buy homes and move in to live – we are here to educate our daughters,” he said.
News12 reports that some members of the crowd said they were concerned about the school’s history. Last year, emergency crews found Fink’s school on Summit Park Road operating without electricity and water while students were inside.
“There was some insinuations that we take shortcuts for the safety of our students, which is not fair, not correct. On the contrary, we followed all of our codes – we’ve always had and always will,” Fink told the crowd.
Fink said he is now selling that property. He says he wants be a good neighbor and plans to speak with the Nanuet school district to discuss traffic concerns when they move in. News12
