Cardinal Hayes Visit, 1933

His Eminence, Patrick Cardinal Hayes visits La Salle Academy, his alma mater, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1933.  Accompanied by Brother Conall Andrew, principal of La Salle Academy, on the Cardinal’s left side, he reminisced about the old days at La Salle and imparted his blessing.  La Salle Academy acquired this building at 44 Second Street in 1856.  In 1936, it was torn down to make way for a new structure that opened in 1937.
