The Pierre Van Cortlandt School was completed and opened in January 1940. The school was built as a PWA project under Franklin Roosevelt. The building has some beautiful artwork including a stone relief on the grand staircase, sculptures on the gymnasium walls, and a stunning stained glass window. The stained glass window depicts a sailboat that appears to be floating on the actual Hudson river. The artwork was done under the auspices of the Federal Artists’ Project.
