Visitation Academy 2 - Brooklyn NY

Visitation Academy [pic 1] - Brooklyn NY

in Bay Ridge between 88th and 90th

Street, taking up 2 whole blocks with a 22ft

high stone wall shutting off the outside world.

This was done for the women in training to

become nuns many years ago. In an 1895 map

I saw this real estate marked as a

"Home for the Inebriated" I guess this was one

of the churches missions.
