For Sale: Philadelphia's Germantown High School (and 26 other Buildings)

From Retiring Guy's postcard collection

Philadelphia Schools See Cash in Old Classrooms.  (The New York Times, 11/12/2013)

Excerpt: The school district published details on its website of 27 buildings, [including Germantown] totaling about 3.7 million square feet, and the land they sit on, in the hope that the properties could be adapted and reused by buyers, who could provide the district with desperately needed cash. The public school system laid off 3,800 workers to close a $304 million budget deficit at the start of the current school year.
