It was also the first high school in the city to have escalators. The school is home to a mural, located at its main entrance, that was designed by Hans Hofmann, one of the leading artists of the Abstract Expressionist movement. The building is located on West 49th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues.The school has leased some of its space to the Manhattan Playhouse to serve as a community theater that showcases many local off-Broadway productions.
