P.S. 108 Playground – New York NY

Description

The New York Times reported that WPA laborers had begun work in late 1941 on a playground on the “eastern half of the block bounded by Madison Avenue, Park Avenue, East 108th Street and East 109th Street.” The playground was built for a new school to be built adjacent to it the following year.
