Mariana Brachetti Academy Cuts the Ribbon

The students have been attending school at the new location of the Mariana Brachetti Academy since the start of the school year in August but October 9th was the day for the official ribbon cutting ceremony.  It was a pleasure to see that the former home of Northeast Catholic High School for Boys has been put to such good use.  The building now houses boys and girls in 6th grade though high school.  This is another great addition to the educational options for the students in Frankford.

For the many North Catholic Alumni, below is a short video of the building tour.

Great Old Aerial Pic of North Catholic

I came across this pic from a friend on Facebook.  I never really thought about how much that area around the Erie/Torresdale El stop has changed over the years.

You can see North Catholic before they built the annex.  For the life of me, nowhere online can I find the date that the expansion building was built.   And across the street where the 7-Eleven is now is [what I’m told] Harbison Dairy, apparently that’s a giant milk bottle on top.  And look, there’s no Dunkin Donuts!  At least the Frankford Creek still looks like a sewer.
