I have touching and complicated memories of Seward Park.
I graduated in 1958 and enjoyed my time at Seward Park. I had a few friends I would love to reconnect with. Carol Isaac is one. We have reconnected. Marilyn Tuck, Sylvia Roseman, Fran Wittenberg and a few others. If anyone know where they are please let me know.
I left in 1950 to join the USMC. I’ve often thought of the school and have fond memories of teachers and Woolf Colvin as Principal. From 1950, well, who knows? So much time has gone by… Best, Mack Errea, Laguna Niguel, CA
I’m trying to contact Mr. Ashok Arora, who taught mathematics at Seward from 1983-2004. Thank you!
SPHS, hi! Carl Silverman here. Still have found memories of those days. We had great swim team cause we had a pool…Stuyvesant HS did not. I’ve been a wedding photographer and sightseeing bus tour guide. NYC my hometown. Stay healthy, be happy. Carl Silverman aka Carlito
43 years ago I graduated from SP and I reminisce on many of the experiences I had which ultimately molded me into who I am today. I realized that I never figured out what life is about but it doesn’t matter. What I learned in the band at SP and my english class with Hannah Hess is to love something enough to spend many hard hours working on it and then you realize that it is what you want to do. It laid the foundation into my future endeavors. As David Thoreau said Our life is frittered away with details … simplify, simplify. Cheers!
A belated “Thank you” to two generous donors to our college scholarship fund:
1) the Estate of Estelle Jean Glover for its donation of $2,500 in 2015;
2) the Classes of 1962, 1963 & 1964 for their donation of $2,000 in 2014.
These gifts helped fund the scholarship that was awarded to Wendy Yang, a senior from the graduating class of 2014. Wendy attended SUNY at Binghamton and graduated four years later. Your generosity helped to make that happen. Thank you again!
Vincente Munoz (Class of 1982) is trying to locate Mandi Workman.
I was pretty much quiet in High School… boyfriend was Ellington Woodard and his cousin’s name was Moses..(they were the classiest dressed guys in high school) any way I’m a retired Army Veteran of 26 years and I live in Texas. Hope to recognize some old classmates
Hello To the Class of 1973, wishing you all the best. Remember ” A Conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking”.
My name is Jerry Agrinzoni and I graduated from Seward in 1974. After completing my undergraduate degree at The City College and graduate degree from the Columbia University School of Social Work I worked at various jobs. From substance abuse counseling at the Addiction Research and Treatment Corporation's methadone maintenance program in Harlem (the Starting Point Clinic) to Services for the Underserved (community residential services for mentally ill chemical abusers) to my current employment with the New York City Housing Authority in the Social Services Department, I often look back on my years at Seward fondly. The environment there, the culture of the neighborhood and the students and teachers proved to be as guiding lights, urging me in the direction of wanting to help people. I received a lot of support and guidance from those individuals at Seward who were charged with bringing out each student's talents. So much were they invested in my future that the guidance counselor applied for me to go to The City College, at a time when I was unmotivated to go to any institution of higher learning. Thank goodness for that! And, thank you Seward Park! I'm sorry to see the old school go, and am heartened to see its incarnation ready to guide the youth of today and tomorrow into this new century. I pray that the same supportive environment I had still lives on! If anyone from the class of 1974, or any other year, would like to email me, please do at email@example.com.

My name is Jacquelyn Anderson and I attended and graduated from Seward Park in 1974. Since that time, I've entered the media. I was a radio newscaster at NJN (WNJT), and have been an on-air radio personality for several years now at stations in New Jersey and Alabama. I currently host "Midday Jazz With Jackie Anderson" at WJAB 90.9 FM, in Huntsville, Alabama. Also, I manage Hammond B3 jazz organist Vince Seneri, who is in the NY/NJ area. His latest CD is "Street Talk", with Grammy-winner Dave Valentin, Houston, Person, and David "Fathead" Newman. We are in the process of planning a world tour. I did get a chance to go to New York back in August, 2005 for my vacation, and had the privilege to drive by Seward Park High with my brother Kenny. I'll be back in New York soon. It brought back many wonderful memories for me! If anyone would like to contact me, my email address is:firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have very fond and vivid memories of my years at SPHS, not the least of which the year when I brought prestige to the school by having a short story I had written for the school's creative writing publication (called the Folio) won the district prize for Manhattan in a contest sponsored by NYU. At that time, all high schools in each of the boroughs were invited to submit student stories and I had to be persuaded to do so by my then honors English teacher, Miss Lyons. It was a first for the school and it made the faculty and all the students very proud.
