An anonymous Staten Island-based LLC has filed applications for a three-story, 15,587-square-foot children’s daycare facility at 1719 Hylan Boulevard, located on the corner of Garretson Avenue in Dongan Hills, along Staten Island’s East Shore. The center will feature an office, daycare rooms, classrooms, and a playground on the roof, according to the project’s Schedule A. There will be six off-street parking spaces.
