Location:Southwest corner of Columbus Avenue and West 60th Street and southeast corner of Amsterdam Avenue and West 60th Street.
Honoree: The Professional Children's School (PCS) was founded in 1914 by reformers concerned about the education of the numerous children then working in theater and vaudeville, who often had to skip or drop out of school because of work. PCS, encompassing grades 6 through 12, currently provides an academic education to about 200 children training or working in theater, film, TV, dance, music and sports. Schedules are designed to accommodate training and performance commitments, including remote learning for students on tour. Among its many notable alumni are Marvin Hamlisch, Yo-Yo Ma, Milton Berle, Scarlett Johanssen, Sarah Jessica Parker, Christopher Walken and Rita Moreno. (Rosenthal)
