A WPA photo of students of the Brooklyn Technical High School says that the school itself was constructed by the PWA. The school’s website says that ground was broken on the site in 1930 and the school was ready for partial occupancy in 1933, so most likely construction began before the New Deal but was completed by the PWA.
