Right off Union Street at 138-11 35th Avenue, is what used to be known as PS 23 "Lincoln School". It became a "600" school for troubled kids in 1965 and now is known as the Queens Academy High School, for kids looking to finish High School after running afoul of the system. At one time they had black boards that were actually black slate, desks that still had ink wells, hard wood floors and a coal delivery chute in the back. Photo is from October 1973, although it has not changed much from the outside except for the sign.
