A planned Islamic school, in the works for two years, appears to be making progress on Parsons Boulevard in Flushing.

Flushing Suburban Civic Association President Ken Cohen reports that a cement handicap-access ramp has been built as well as a new front entrance at 78-39 Parsons Blvd. The Jamaica Muslim Center bought that and an adjacent property at 78-31 Parsons with hopes of opening a school for 160 students, who would be bused in from Jamaica.

The site has been empty for years, previously having been used as a drug rehab center. The school needs a certificate of occupancy to open by the end of the year.

Welcome to the discussion.
