School Addition, St. Mary's Gate of Heaven, Ozone Park

Boegel and Allodi were the architects for the original school and convent in this parish, and then worked on this school addition building circa 1965:

The news clipping talks about how the building is a youth center, with college-size basketball court, and eight classrooms. CYO basketball still takes place in the building.

Convent at St. Dominic's, Oyster Bay

Another building where I can't get Street View. My guess is that the convent building is the one across the street from the high school -- I think it's the building with the "A" marker in this map:

St. Brigid's Chapel, Carle Place

St. Brigid's Chapel is now known as Our Lady of Hope Church, in Carle Place. It's another instance where I can't get a good Google Street View image. Take a look at the last image on this page for a good image of the side of this church.

The chapel was built in 1954. Our Lady of Hope was established as a parish in 1987.

Cure of Ars School, Merrick

The school opened in 1951 while Fr. William O'Keefe was pastor. The school closed in 1992 and became part of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional School.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School and Convent, Astoria, NY

Here's what appears to be the former school for Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Astoria:

The news clipping I'm using notes that there was both a school and convent designed by William Boegel, and puts it in Long Island City. Despite the geographic differences between Long Island City and Astoria, this seems to be the school building from the newspaper clipping. The large white rectangle on the upper part of the building obscures the top of the cross that was a prominent feature of the original design.

The convent does not appear to be in existence anymore, although the quality of the news clipping makes it difficult to compare the convent against other buildings nearby the school.

The school is now the home of the Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria, a school for 6th-12th grade girls run by the NYC Department of Education.
