Hi, I work in this wonderful landmark, truly amazing! I am in dire need of historical info on this structure I would like to share with students. There are rumors that it was a hospital and most intriguing of all; it was a morgue!!! if you have any info, please feel free to share.

I attended this school back in the 50's. I went to kindergarden and had Ms. Simpson. I had Ms. Robinson in 1st grade, Mrs. Gahn in second grade, Mrs.Ascher the Ms Giddens in third grade, Ms. Saxon in fourth grade, and then was moved to PS 299 to be in the IGC program with Mr. Jayson for 5th and 6th grades. All the basics I learned here..... very fond memories.....

I'm an old man and this computer stuff is very hard for me.----- I'm typing
this with one finger.
The photo shown was probably taken in the 1930's or possibly earlier.
I went to P.S, 106 from about 1937 or 1938 from first to sixth grade - then on to Junior High School 85. I remember the soda fountain store at the right side of the photo.
Best remembrance of P.S. 106 -- winning the sixth grade "fire safety" essay and going to City Hall where Mayor Fiorelo LaGuardia was going to give all winning students from all schools their medals. No such luck - some flunky handed them out but Mom took me to a Horn and Hardut restaurant across from City Hall. That was really a treat.
Best Wishes to all P.S. 106 alumni.
P.S. I delivered the Brooklyn Eagle on Putnam Av from Knick to Bdwy.
