    Classrooms, good times with recess. Also reminds you of those times you wished the school burned down when you were a kid. But kind of sad when you see it.

    There's 2 Spring Garden Public Schools. The one we were at was abandoned, but a few blocks down there’s a new version of the school. I suspect much of the gentrification that took place forced one to close down and one to remain open.

    I tried asking the locals when this school was closed, but apparently one of the residents of the area said she remember graduating there as a child but it was closed over 30 years ago! And I went in Apr, 2011.
