First the Trinity School and now the Brearley School?those posh uptown private schools just can't stop screwing with rent-stabilized apartment dwellers! Brearley, on the Upper East Side, is expanding by purchasing the 12-story rear tower of 85 East End Avenue (right) and sticking classrooms in it. The school is giving the tenants the boot, because state law allows buildings owned by charitable or educational institutions to do just that. The residents lawyered up when rumors of of Brearley's interest in the building started spreading, and the school has promised to relocate the rent-regulated tenants. To where, well, that's a mystery. Hey, we hear nice things about Sunset Park!
