PS 123 Mahalia Jackson School Reviews

Mahalia Jackson school formerly Alexander Webb School

By , a Former Student on

Greetings PS 123 Manhattan. I was in the 1st class in and the 1st class out of this school leaving in June 1959. The name of the school then was Alexander Webb School which transitioned from PS 5 on Edgcombe ave and 140th st. The next time I'm in NYC I will come by to visit , and I will bring my class picture of June 1959.

I would like to encourage/inspire the students as much as I can
