Mayor of South Nyack: Nyack College sold to a religious school
SOUTH NYACK, NY – South Nyack Village Mayor Bonnie Christian has confirmed that Nyack College will be sold to Yeshiva Viznitz for a religious school.
The college sale was first reported by former Clarkstown town councilor Peter Bradley. The Rockland Report was the first media outlet to confirm this news. Sources tell us the campus sale is $ 45 million.
At Tuesday’s board meeting, Mayor Christian revealed a few other details that the village was told earlier this month of the purchase. Lohud reports that the closure is scheduled for early August. Sources tell us the campus price was $ 45 million.
On May 26, 2020, the South Nyack Village Board of Directors unanimously rejected a request by Nyack College to sell portions of its 107-acre campus for the redevelopment of student housing and administrative offices into single-family and multi-family residences. .
The campus consists of 40 buildings and approximately 520,000 square feet of space spread across South Nyack, Upper Nyack, the Town of Clarkstown and the Town of Orangetown.
What remains unclear, according to Lohud, is whether Yeshiva Viznitz, located in the Ramapo village of Kaser, has development partners for the college and whether the school’s Theological Seminary Alliance on Route 9W in Clarkstown is included. .
