St. Joseph School for the Deaf

A private (that is, not dependent on a parish) elementary school is on the campus of St. Joseph School for the Deaf at 100 Hutchinson River Parkway, Bronx NY 10465. The website is here. The AIA Guide ascribes the old building at the school and its match across the parkway (Msgr. Scanlan High School) to the firm Schickel and Ditmars. The many other buildings which the firm designed for the Archdiocese include the seminary at Dunwoodie and St. Vincent's Hospital.

Editor's Note

Because this blog appears to receive visitors looking for parish information rather than a book index, I am reviewing each post, adding geographic help, mailing addresses, phone numbers, and website links. Be sure to use the labels at the right to find information, or use the search box at the top. Thank you.
It would seem that 54 of the 67 parishes have elementary schools, but my count could be wrong. I have begun to add notes about each school as I find them, an incomplete task.
