Public School 48 is poised to be one of the few landmarks in South Jamaica. The Conservancy joined elected officials and advocates in supporting this designation at a Landmarks Commission hearing on August 4. Read our testimony.
NYC School Superintendent of Buildings Walter C. Martin designed the school, which was completed in 1936. It is notable for its streamlined appearance, marking an evolution from the revival styles that had been more typical of schools in the early 20th century.
