     Gallistel School is named after an early East Side resident, Matthew Gallistel.  Mr. Gallistel established the first store in the area in 1875, the same year the post office of "Colehour" was opened.  The school opened in 1876 and was the first public school in the East Side.  The school is currently located at 103rd and Ewing Avenue and has a branch for its upper grades in the former St. Francis De Sales school at 101st and Avenue J.
