"The Incorrigible Students At PS 120"

the map below is from 1891 and the arrow is pointing to primary school 120

The 1913 article on the benefits of school lunches mentioned the tempering effect it had on the incorrigible students at PS 120 on Broome Street. That building amazingly is still there, one of the few in a long undeveloped area of the lower east side. I remember it as a fire house as a kid (I lived around the corner at 76 Suffolk Street)
Today its used as a film production site, owned by the Levinson/Fontana Company, i.e. Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana.
