I took a summer art class in this building at age 12. I don't have too many other memories of it, but like the village's cathedral and the St Paul's School for boys, this, the St Mary's School for girls, was built in 1879. Amazing that its demolition about 25 years ago was tolerated. This drawing is a copy of an undated archive photo. It looked to me from the early 1900's, but there's a column of fire escape stairs on the facade on the right, which makes me think that it was taken after New York's Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in 1911.
The 1901 Garden City Hotel building demolished in 1973. Such principles and taste were not to emerge when the new hotel was finished, 10 years later. What a loss for the town that this far superior, historical building was not preserved. I did a small drawing from an photo in the village archives showing the front entrance in the heyday.
