There seems to be a park at Bushwick Ave & Madison St.
I believe this is where PS 56 once stood. See the link above for a photo of 56.

I started kindergarten with Mrs. Coker in 1948, and then had Mrs. Doyle, Miss Strickter, Miss Donlan,and Mrs. Burns (the ones I remember). From there I went to Halsey Jr. High. I look back at the school picture with fond memories, and I know that the education I received there was top-notch. I owe my good foundation to the teachers who were part of PS 56.

Time moves on. Went to PS 56 from 1947 to 1953. Miss Cook (K) then Mmes. Barbash, Steed, Doenecke,Casey and Burns (5th & 6th). Other memorable teacher were Mrs. Wald (great), Mrs. costello (very loud) and Miss Cherry (cracked blackboard with my friend's head in 3rd grade). Mr. Bueschell was the principal and Mrs Reilly was the nurse.

Methodist churc across stree (same Bushwick side was my BSA troop, and on the other side was a candy store and bakery.

My Dad walked the Catholic kids on wednesdays to Our Lady of good counsel for released tiome training. Boys would play punchball in the yard if they were good. I have no idea wjhat the girls did for fun. Other than shopping, I still don't know. Bill (was called Skipper then)
