High School Near Delancy Street #general

My mother lived on Avenue C near 10th Street and went to Washington
Irving High School, 40 Irving Place at 16th Street. Washington Irving
is a short subway ride or a long walk >from Delancey Street. Seward

"neighborhood" school. Zero Mostel and Walter Matthau are both Seward
grads. The school continues to serve immigrant families but these days

If a person lived at 138 Delancey St in NYC, which high school would this

I'm not sure when it was first established, but my father-in-law went
to Seward Park H.S. He was born in 1916.

Perhaps it was Seward Park H.S. or Washington Irving H.S. (all girls in
those days). Good luck, Ira
