Your Bronx schools still in existence?

MY K thru 1 OL of Pity is gone but I was surprised to find out that the Church is gone also. The door was locked but I think it's an Hispanic church. I tried to inquire at the old school but the man who answered the bell seemed out of place for that neighborhood. He appeared as an intellect or a yuppie; or maybe looking for a cheap abode. He could offer no info on the church. I think the school is some sort of an apartment house.
My 1 thru 6 grd, PS18 Mott Haven school is still standing (when I last saw it maybe 10 yrs ago). It was used for Dept Ed administration. Security would not let me have full access to the building but I saw enough to imagine just how small everything looked.
JHS 7 & 8 grd PS 3 Melrose school. I could not find it although we had to walk almost a mile each way.
Although my HS NYSP is in Manhattan it's gone also. I didn't realize it was gone until I called the NY School Dept to get the school's phone number for s 50th reunion, they said they never heard of it. The apparently not too intelligent NY Dept of Ed staff wouldn't even look it up to see if it ever existed. Bottom line, all my NY schools are non- existant.
