East 17th Street in Flatbush Becomes "Saul Bruckner Way"
Edward R. Murrow High School, home to more than 3,000 students, stretches along East 17th Street, between Ave. M and Ave. L in Brooklyn. Starting Thursday, however, that block will be called Saul Bruckner Way, to honor the school’s founder and long-time principal, who passed away last year.
In time for the street renaming, current Murrow senior Man La
drew an oil portrait of Bruckner standing with arms crossed — his signature pose —
against a backdrop of a blue-tiled school hallway.
