Our new Photo Album

We want to compile a database of PS 165 alumni, especially from the early years. Did you know that Fran Drescher of The Nanny is an alum? How about Ellen Barkin (Diner, The Big Easy, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and more)? Early class pictures of both to be added shortly.


I want to find these people ... email me if you are a classmate or know of one. Let's compile an email list and get in touch. Maybe a reunion? This is the 50 year anniversary of PS 165!

Help with names gladly accepted! Names in GREEN are people we have found so far.
