Old Easton School Has New Owner

Developer Abe Atiyeh buys school office building on Northampton Street for $200,000.

The Easton Area School District's old administration building has a new owner.

The school board voted Tuesday night to sell the building on the 800 block of Northampton Street to the developer, who will pay $200,000 for the property and turn it into offices.

Board member Frank Pintabone said Atiyeh has put down $10,000 for the building. The sale still needs approval from a Northampton County judge.

The building -- which was the Cottingham School before it became administration offices -- has been vacant for several years.

Last year, a group of Easton residents asked the board to make sure it sold the building to a developer who would turn it into an asset for the community.

Wow. Doesn't the school board read the local news? This guy creates problems....here's hoping he's turned over a new leaf for 2013.
