GRAVESEND -

Neighbors of a Gravesend private school say ending a 13-year-old parking agreement would negatively impact their quality of life, so they're opposing a plan to give the school an extra entrance and exit along Lake Street.

The school's main entrance is on McDonald Avenue.

The Gravesend Bensonhurst Quality of Life Group says school buses and parents' cars cause a traffic nightmare when school lets out.

The group says that 13 years ago it settled with the Magen David Yeshivah school to limit parking woes in the residential neighborhood. But now the school wants to get rid of the agreed-upon conditions, which residents argue will limit available parking, cause traffic and send the immediate area into chaos during school pickups and drop-offs.

Community Board 11 will hold a public hearing on the issue Thursday.
