Brooklyn Technical High School has been a proven pioneer in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics-based education for more than 80 years. In this age of tight budgets, Tech’s administration and faculty, as well as the Alumni Foundation, are committed to preserving and, indeed, enhancing the standard of education provided to today’s and future generations of Technites. We will contribute to the continuation of our illustrious heritage.
Dr. Albert L. Colston, the mathematics department chairman at Manual Training High School, had a vision for Brooklyn Technical High School. Dr. Colston claimed that the nation needed a better-trained skilled workforce following World War I. He gave a paper to the Brooklyn Engineers’ Club on October 18, 1918, proposing the creation of a technical high school program for Brooklyn students.
Dr. Colston’s education program was characterized by a two-year general studies curriculum with a technological and mechanical focus, followed by two years of training in one of many career-oriented majors. Technical College Planning, Architecture and Building Design, Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical, and Structural Engineering were the majors in 1933.

My return to BTHS was to see whether my memories of this huge, unique school were accurate or not. I got off the DeKalb Ave. subway station uncertain if I’d be able to find the school. Fortunately, the antenna pointed the direction. Some of the sights were familiar, but where was Barton’s (or was it Baricini’s) Candy Factory?
The foundry was untouched and deserted in 1998, with some of the shops resembling museums. I had forgotten about the size of the auditorium. There’s a lower deck and an upper balcony. I was too young to notice the architectural detail in the auditorium the last time I was there (and the school as a whole).
Brooklyn Tech received the first computer in a high school, an IBM 1130 mini-mainframe, when I was there. To use the punch card system, we had to wait in line. I studied electronics at a station that looked a lot like this. It looks like something from the TV show “LOST’s” Dharma Initiative:

Brooklyn tech graduation

My father and I went to our high school, Brooklyn Tech, for homecoming today. My father graduated from The Class of 1948, and I graduated from The Class of 1973. My graduating class was the last all-male class.
From my parents’ house in New Jersey, I drove into Brooklyn with my father. Traffic was not a problem since it was early Saturday morning before we reached the Prospect Expressway interchange on the Gowanus Expressway. Then it was bumper-to-bumper traffic before we reached Atlantic Avenue, where we left The B.Q.E. It was a short drive from there to the parking garage about two blocks from Tech.
The Tech cheering squad welcomed us warmly as we walked to the entrance on South Elliot Place. I checked in with my father. I stated that I had a social studies class in the room where coats were being tested. We then went to a reception in the gym on the first floor.
The auditorium is the City of New York’s second largest. It is only second to Radio City Music Hall in terms of success. A scene from the play “Fiddler on the Roof,” music from the school’s jazz band, and the Brooklyn Tech Alma Mater performed by the school choir were included in the performance. Each anniversary class was honored, with remarks from the current principal following. The Class of 1936 was represented by one alum! A graduate of The Class of 1953 was honoured with a rededication of the auditorium.

During the fall of 2007, I went to one of my favorite parts of Brooklyn, Fort Greene, which has evolved from a place where you needed a tank to ride in for safety in my youth to a place I couldn’t afford without a MegaMillions win today, and passed two places in particular: Brooklyn Tech along DeKalb Avenue and Fort Greene Park, and Flushing Avenue along the Navy Yard, where the remains of Adolph Hitler can be found.
In a converted factory at 49 Flatbush Avenue Extension (near Fulton Street), the school opened in 1922. In 1933, it relocated to its new site, a 12-story building at 28 Fort Greene Place. It’s one of NYC’s hidden gems that you don’t really hear or learn about.
According to its wikipedia page, Brooklyn Tech has an Olympic-size swimming pool, a foundry, a materials testing facility, an aeronautical lab, an 18,000-watt radio transmitter (which, when combined with the building’s 145-foot height, makes Brooklyn Tech the tallest combined structure in Brooklyn); a 3,000-seat auditorium; and a robotics lab…
