Photo by myself on the Upper East Side, around 63rd Street and Madison Avenue.
Boys dressed for private school were waiting for their breakfast from a street cart.
My guess is that these boys were students at The Browning School, an all-boys school at 62nd Street, between Madison and Park Avenues. The school serves boys from pre-primary age (around 4 years old) through high school.
Subjects in high school include Philosophy, Latin and even Greek. There is a jazz ensemble and clubs to suit every interest. The list of classes sound like college courses.
Less than 400 students attend the school in total. Tuition averages about $36,000 per year. There are just under 200 private schools in New York City.
