|The Erasmus Hall Campus in Brooklyn can boast a long list of achievements for itself. Walking up Flatbush Avenue, the rising Gothic towers of the campus at 911 Flatbush Avenue foreshadow its importance in inspiring students over the years.|
|One of the oldest secondary schools in the state, the campus still encloses its original wood-framed Federal style building dating from 1786.|
|The stained glass windows of Erasmus Hall serve as inspirations for students. |
Notice the statue of Erasmus out in the courtyard.
|The back of the Tiffany stained glass pieces may be discerned in the windows |
directly above the Gothic lettering spelling out the school name.
