Former Arthur S. May School, Poughkeepsie, NY

This school was most recently known as the Arthur S. May Elementary School.  Previously it was simply the Arlington Elementary School, and it was originally the first high school for the Arlington Central School District.  The building was built in 1924.  The school is located on Raymond Avenue in Poughkeepsie, NY.  The school district stopped using this location in June 2014 and moved the name of the school (Arthur S. May) to a nearby building.  The property is now for sale, as of 2017.

I particularly liked photographing the “Boys” and “Girls” entrance signs, and also the various staircases throughout the building.  It was kind of sad to read the final goodbye notes on the white boards, especially the principal’s (“pack my office”).
