Visiting St. Patrick's Old Cathedral School

This past June due to years of low enrollment, St. Patrick's Old Cathedral School on Prince Street at the corner of Mott Street closed its doors. Opened in 1822, it was the oldest existing Catholic grammar school in New York.

In a sale open to the public, the diocese is currently selling off many remaining items in the building to clear it our for undefined use. NYC The Blog snuck into the back courtyard to snap a few photos (seen above). See the full photo album on Facebook.
