Fort Hamilton High School is one of the largest, most diverse public high schools in New York City, with 5,000 students. Situated in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn — the fastest growing Arabic community in the country and a magnet for immigrants from Latin America, China, South Asia, and Eastern Europe as well — this mural invites the world to make the community home.
