Description

The original part of the current P.S. 2 school building on 21st Avenue in East Elmhurst, Queens, was constructed during the mid-1930s as a Public Works Administration (PWA) project. The building bears a 1935 cornerstone, and a plaque cites the construction dates as 1935-6.

Funding for the school was part of a larger PWA grant allotted for the building of three schools and a hospital wing in Queens and the Bronx.

PWA Docket No. NY 7582.
