My Neighborhood – Midwood, Brooklyn

Bishop Kearney High School

This high school is located on 60th Street by Bay Parkway in Brooklyn, NY. It honors “the youngest auxiliary bishop of Brooklyn,” Raymond A. Kearney. He is honored for his service to the diocese which was “from 1935…to October 1, 1956”. It is an all female school with a Roman Catholic program. School’s motto is “Dilige Justitiam (Work for Justice)”.

What surprises me is that the school is for girls only but it is named after a guy.

At the start of the Spring I like to take a walk by the school and enjoy it’s blooming trees; they are beautiful and pink!
