9. Erasmus High School

Now tucked between stores on Flatbush Avenue is Erasmus High School, the oldest secondary school in New York State, founded through the generosity of founding fathers like Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr. Prolific architect C.B.J. Snyder, the Superintendent of School Buildings in New York City, designed this stunning campus filled with Gothic architecture and stained glass. Nearby, you’ll find other architectural treasures, including a Dutch Reformed church, as the land for Erasmus High School was donated by them.
