Central Commercial High School was located at 214 East 42nd Street next to the Daily News building.  I graduated with the last class in 1974.  The building was razed and became the Helmsley Hotel. 

The curriculum focused on business, secretarial and marketing.

Hi Everyone

There are a bunch of us on Facebook trying to find other graduates of Central Commercial High School in New York.  Personally I graduated in 1974. 

If you are interested in contacting some of our old classmates let me know and I will add you to the group.  You can either find me on Facebook as Susan Rastella, or by e-mail at nojailforyou@live.com.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Susan Rastella
