P.S. 64, Joseph P. Addabbo School – Ozone Park NY

Description

Ozone Park, New York’s Public School 64 (P.S. 64), now the Joseph P. Addabbo school, was constructed by the federal Work Projects Administration. The school is located north of 101st Avenue between 82nd and 83rd Streets.

The WPA described the project in 1940: “Completed in March, 1940. Replaces an antiquated building of a capacity inadequate to the increased population of the district. Twenty-two class rooms, with a normal seating capacity of 905 pupils, include completely equipped science room, a woodworking shop and cooking room. The cost was $595,438, of which the city’s contribution was $309,600.”

The school has since been enlarged.
