Grand Old School
The NYC Department of Education has some pretty impressive buildings in its care, including this specimen on Kent between Myrtle and Park. Originally Public School 15, the campus now houses two schools, and at five big stories tall, it towers above the rest of the street, most of which retains an old-style tenement feel (see the last photo above). The building was completed in 1908, making it a proud 101 years old.
