The Grand Street Boys was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in New York City.

The Boys were the class of the competition in the late 1930s. In 1938, they were refused entry into junior competition because they were too good, forcing them to compete against, and beat, senior corps at the New York VFW Open.

In 1939, judges awarded the Boys a score of 99.25 at the New York American Legion Championships, not because they could find 0.75 in deductions, but because they believed that no corps could be 100 percent perfect.

The Grand Street Boys eventually became today's senior New York Skyliners.
