NEW YORK, New York, June 12, 2012 - June 11, 2011 marked the first installation of a wind turbine at a New York City school. A brief ceremony took place at 2:30 p.m. at The Town School in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The school educates children from nursery school to eighth grade. About 70 students, alumni, parents and friends attended the ceremony.
