This page describes Malcolm X Boulevard as it appeared in 2001.  The tour was developed as part of the Malcolm X Boulevard Streetscape Enhancement Project.  These pages are no longer being updated.

5. P.S. 208 and P.S.185
Public School 208, Manhattan, The Alain L. Locke School (21 W. 111th Street between Malcolm X Blvd. and Fifth Avenue)
Public School 185, Manhattan, The John Mercer Langston School (20 W. 112th Street between Malcolm X Blvd. and Fifth Avenue)
Both schools, built in 1968, were designed by the firm of Katz, Waisman, Weber. Their modest schemes employ brick and exposed aggregate on the facade. They are notable for the graphic representation of the school letters which lends a sense of sophistication.

Looking west from the corner of Malcolm X Blvd. and West 112th Street, you will be able to see the stately glory of
The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine located on Amsterdam Avenue and W. 112th Street, overlooking Harlem.
