An old building in Sea Bright has been torn down to make way for new construction.

River Street Realty LLC received approval by the Planning Board to deconstruct the now-closed Sea Bright Elementary School on River Street off Ocean Avenue, according to an employee at Sea Bright Borough Hall. The building is being taken down to make way for eight new homes.

The deconstruction began on Thursday, Sept. 12. Construction workers could be seen tearing the building down. Former students flocked to the building to catch final glimpses of what will now be a childhood memory. Some people even took some of the buildingโ€™s iconic red bricks.

The school taught children in kindergarten through sixth grade. The school was constructed in the late 1800s andย closed in the 1970sย .

River Street Realty is based out of Brooklyn, New York.
