    This Italian renaissance school building has stood in Harlem since 1903. It acted as an elementary school for 72 years before closing in 1975. It sat abandoned for almost 40 years before work finally began on plans to convert the dilapidated building into a Boy's and Girls club and low income housing in 2014.
