The Children’s Aid Society is planning to dispose of yet another property, this time on the Upper East Side. The nonprofit, which sparked outrage in the community when it sold two Sullivan Street properties which were then converted to condominiums, is now looking to sell the Rhinelander Children’s Center at 350 East 88th Street.

Though the society hasn’t started taking bids for the property, the decision to sell is final, according to a statement on the society’s website.

“CAS’ decision was driven by a desire to focus their resources in lower income areas and is not a reflection of their relationship with Rhinelander,” the statement, first spotted by Curbed, said.

Programming at the center will end in June of next year. In 1988, the society sold off a corner parcel and a playground nearby the center, which have since been converted to condos, according to Curbed. The following year, the center completed a $1.9 million renovation to reverse damage caused by a botched 1950s alteration. [Curbed]Hiten Samtani
