Built in the early part of the 20th century, the former P.S. 64 has seen wave upon wave of new New Yorkers. Beginning in 1977, led by a pair of community-based organizations, Adopt-A-Building and CHARAS, the building was transformed into a community center known as El Bohio. The grass-roots initiative mirrored a local and nationwide citizen-led rebirth of urban centers and helped to catalyze the revitalization of the surrounding “Loisaida.” P.S. 64/El Bohio was not the only building that New Yorkers saved from destruction in the 1970s and returned to productive use. Its special significance is in its identity as a public building, dedicated to the revival of community and of cultural survival. As such, P.S. 64/El Bohio long has been recognized by many as one of the principal places to embody these historical events.
这座建于20世纪早期。曾为64号公立学校的建筑已经目睹了一波波新纽约客的浪潮。现在的社区中心由两个社区组织“收养一座楼”及“CHARAS"创始于1977年,这座建筑随后被改造成了被大家熟知的“El Bohio"社区中心。这个草根的行动反映出了一个本地及全国范围内的公民主导型城市中心再生浪潮,并且帮助催化了周边的“Loisaida"区的复兴。64号公立学校并不是唯一一个纽约客们从70年代拆除历史拯救并使其重现价值的建筑。其特殊的意义在于其公共建筑的身份,并致力于社区与文化的振兴。上述特性都令64号公立学校/El Bohio长期以来被公认为一个可作为代表这些历史事件的重要场所之一。
