School (former) – Upper Jay NY

Description

Living New Deal believes this structure to be originally one of several similarly designed school buildings built in the area in 1934-5 as part of a New Deal project.

Their construction was enabled by the federal Public Works Administration (PWA), which provided a $178,140 loan and $56,289 grant, which effectively covered the entire $230,491 total project cost.

PWA Docket No. NY 2624
