One of the oldest school buildings in New York, PS 66 in Richmond Hill, has finished work on a new wing that will add six new classrooms and a new cafeteria.

Officials from the School Construction Authority last week gave Councilman Eric Ulrich (D-Ozone Park) a preview of the new, $42-million addition.

The school, named for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis because of her work to preserve classic architecture in the city, will gain 124 new seats when the wing opens this fall.

The addition created two new pre-K classrooms, one kindergarten room and three standard classrooms.

A new cafeteria and kitchen, an exercise room and an office suite for school administrators are also included.
