Technical Career Institutes opened its first Brooklyn school on March 26, when staff, pols, and students gathered at 1360 Fulton St. to snip the ribbons, and Standing O says “it’s about time.” The college, founded in 1909, has always been based in that other borough, Manhattan, and was made famous by its small class sizes and great teachers — and who can forget those awesome mid-afternoon commercials on channel 11. TCI has ranked in the top in the two-year college category in the nation for the past 11 years. Albert Wiltshire, chief of staff for Congressman Ed Towns (D–Fort Greene), told Standing O, “This is a major step for this area and community, and it is important that our children will have opportunities to learn and grow at TCI.” The new campus offers state-of-the-art classrooms and a great location.
