Forgotten New York is a program of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, a non-profit organization supported by the Long Island City community.
I’m at a longtime NYC high school that was an all-boys school until it moved to Queens, accepted girls, and the world turned color.

st. francis prep?
St Francis Prep 186 North 6th Street Brooklyn NY 11211, now Boricua College.
Looks like you’re on N. 6th Street in Williamsburg, outside the former home of St. Francis Prep.
St. Francis Prep!
That’s the old St. Francis Prep (now a college) on North 6th between Driggs and Bedford. Was there for two years before making the move to Fresh Meadows
This is the former location for St Francis Prep when they were located in Brooklyn. I attended classes there in the early ’70s.
Boricua College?Where you get a degree in PuertoRicology?
On Red and Blue.
St. Francis Prep . My alma mater Class of 1968
“On for Old St. Francis”
SFP, class of 1969. At one time this was a typical Brooklyn working class neighborhood, with a large Polish community. It is now more like an extention of the East Village with some of the best beer bars in the city.
Dennis you are absolutely correct in your review of the neighborhood. I still go back to visit some of the beer bars.

Remember St. Francis Prep well at that location. Took the entrance exam in 1957 there after going over to Bedford Ave on the Canarsie line from East New York. Attending Molloy I went to a couple of Friday night basketball games down there. Several friends graduated from Prep. Even commuted in on the LIRR from Long Beach every day.
