Spanish Harlem, 106th Street Between Lexington and Park Avenues

Turning onto 106th Street, we see important buildings. I can't identify this one, though. One source says that it's P.S. 72, but P.S. 72's online address is at East 104th Street. What's a blogger to do at 12:02 a.m.? Leave it to you, of course. Someone out there must know.

This one is easy: St. Cecelia's Church, built in 1883-87 by Napoleon LeBrun & Sons. The AIA guide to New York City calls it "one of East Harlem's special treasures." I agree.

And this one? I'll just have to find out and bring it back to ya.

See map.
