With schools in Queens and throughout the city bursting at the seams, it ramped up its purchases from one per year with an average price of just over $8 million from 2004 to 2008, to eight acquisitions in 2009 and 2010 worth more than $135 million, Real Capital Analytics data showed. As a mark of the pressure on schools, the United Federation of Teachers filed suit in state court in Manhattan last month in an effort to force the city Department of Education to reduce the number of students in classrooms in Fresh Meadows, Queens. In its recent purchases, the city spent the most in Manhattan, where it paid $39 million in July for 10 East 15th Street near Union Square, a two-story building with 109,000 square feet of development rights; and $33 million to Solow Realty for a parcel with development rights for 236,000 square feet at the corner of 35th Street and First Avenue, in the footprint of the developer’s stalled mega-project...
