During World War I, the school was an induction center and in World War II, it was a community center. The private school Little Red Schoolhouse got its start in PS61 classrooms in 1928. In 1952, PS 61 was featured in a Life magazine article as the most overcrowded school in New York City–2011 students in 1470 seats! With journalists present to document its safety, the Salk polio vaccine was tested in PS61 kids in 1954…
