Fact of the Week

WEEK of JULY 9, 2018
(The last one of the 2017-2018 school year! See you in the fall!)

Ever wonder how much a cloud weighs? They may seem light floating around in the sky, but the average cumulus cloud actually weighs about 1.1 million pounds! That's equal to the weight of 100 elephants, 40 school buses or an Airbus A380, one of the world's largest passenger jets.

Week of July 2, 2018
During the hot summer of 1936, Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia moved his office to the Bartow-Pell Mansion in Pelham Bay Park. His staff took the 6 train to work every day, getting off at the Pelham Bay Park station, where the Mayor sent cars to pick them up.
(Bonus fact!): The first Boy Scout camp in New York City, opened in 1911, was located on Hunter Island in Pelham Bay Park.
