[JR: Not good press for Alma Mater. Not surprising though. And wasn’t Alma Mater there first? The “community” moved there; so what did they expect?]

Upon their return 10 years later, there were more Christian Brothers at the school than ever before.
In 1937, the main campus of St. Peter’s Boys’ High School was designated a junior college of Manhattan College and staffed by LaSalle Brothers.

By 1943, the junior college closed and St. Peter’s Boys High School relocated to that campus. The main campus of St. Peter’s Boys High School remained there over the years on the corner of Clinton and Henderson Avenues.

RIVERDALE and FIELDSTON, Part 1 

*** begin quote ***

The Henry Hudson Parkway, named for to the English explorer and navigator, who sailed past Spuyten Duyvil in the Half Moon in 1609, begins at the West Side Highway in Manhattan at West 72nd Street and continues north through the Bronx as Route 9A, where it cuts through Riverdale and Fieldston into Van Cortlandt Park; once it crosses into Westchester County, it changes its name to the Saw Mill River Parkway. It was commissioned in 1936 by NYC traffic czar Robert Moses and opened in 1937. 
South of Riverdale Avenue, the HHP took over the route of the Spuyten Duyvil Parkway; east of the HHP, the Spuyten Duyvil Parkway survives, but with a name change to the Manhattan College Parkway. As such it traverses some of the Bronx’s highest hills.
