Bronx - Photo #156

WPA comfort station in St. Mary's Park at 148th Street and St. Ann's Avenue in the Bronx. Public School 27, designed by C.B.J. Snyder and built in 1897, is in the background. This is only one of many majestic, monumental, magnificent, and beautiful school buildings in the Bronx dating from an era when public education was valued and honored and fully funded.
