I attended Stuyvesant High School in New York City from 1977-1981.
Stuy is a New York City public high school that specializes inmathematics and science. It is one of the most competitive public high schools in the United States, sending more students to some of the nation's most prestigious universities than most other public or private schools. The school opened in 1904 on Manhattan's East Side and moved to a new building in Battery Park City in 1992. Stuyvesant is noted for its strong academic programs, having produced many notable alumni including four Nobel laureates. U.S. News & World Report ranked it twenty-third in their 2008 list of America's best "Gold-Medal" high schools.
I went to the Stuy located at 15th Street and First Avenue.
