NEW YORK — New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has agreed to find space in public school buildings for four larger or new charter schools that want to open or expand next year.

The New York Times ( ) says they include two schools run by Eva Moskowitz's Success Academy, one in the Bronx, which is adding third grade, and another in Brooklyn, which is adding fifth grade.

In February, the mayor denied space to three of her schools.

The city says it couldn't accommodate a fifth school, now operating in a private space in Upper Manhattan.

The city Education Department hasn't determined in which buildings the four schools will be located.
