On a beautiful 25 acre campus in Brooklyn, Poly Prep is impressive in many ways. It has been a prestigious high school for over 100 years. It was boys only, now co-ed and very diverse.

I went there because it was Richard’s 50th class reunion…Class of 1960. It was fun hearing all the reminiscences, the joking, the catching up. Here are photos of the day and night-long celebration.
