STEM at Stuy

I just got back from a 3-day STEM institute at the new Stuyvesant high school (yes, I know it has been in Battery Park City for 20 years already). It ran from August 8-10. Hundreds of others attended, there were dozens of workshop offerings, and even the chancellor herself was there. The keynote speaker was none other than Neil deGrasse Tyson of Hayden Planetarium fame. Clearly a lot of time and hard work went into pulling it off. In fact, my workshop, “We Are having Molecules for Dinner” was superb (more on that later).

My point is, there were so many coordinators and administrators putting together this event, so why did no one catch this mistake on the agenda?

Spooky Stuy Stairway

In a room inside the old Stuyvesant high school, there is a back storage closet. In the back of this closet, there is an old, forgotten staircase leading upwards to a spooky loft. Very disturbing.
