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.

    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.

    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.

    • Howie says:

      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.

      you mean 1967? Franciscan Brothers, Prep & College were still on Butler Street in 1957. Prep than moved to North 6th (old St Vincent de Paul Parochial School), College and Brothers Friary to Remsen Street, than 1974 Prep moved to Bishop Reilly, Fresh Meadows. I was 3 years North 6th, in the 1st graduating class from (Reilly bldg.) in 1975 (graduated Saint Francis College 1979).

    I was a Rockaway resident who took a class in Summer session taught by Brother Timothy in 1960 or 61. St. Francis Prep, in those years, offered Summer School classes to Catholic Boys high school students from Brooklyn and Queens. He was a good teacher who used a highly energetic style in class. Although he spared the Rockawayites none of his great sarcasm and wit, I believe we all enjoyed the classes. He would say in jest ( I think) that we were in Summer school because the salt air at the beach rotted our brains. That was just one of his barbs, obviously he taught decades before the era of political correctness. Anyone remember Brother Timothy or St.Francis Summer school?
