Site eyed for St. Saviour's

This is the spot at All Faiths Cemetery where St. Saviour's will be relocated. The church will be thoroughly documented and the individual pieces of the structure numbered while the site at All Faiths is prepared to host it. The church will then carefully be dismantled and reassembled at its permanent home, with necessary repairs made during this process. An entrance will be created on 69th Street for access to the public.

From the Daily News:
St. Saviour Church saved

How is the move being funded?

Private donations and public grants.

Congratulations Christina to you and the JPCA for a "job well done". I have been following this story for a while now, and respect how much time and effort you have put into this project.

All this without the LPC
lifting a damn finger to help
save this treasure....eh Ms. Betts?

YOU DON'T MEET OUR CRITERIA
for a responsible director of research!

Perhaps, after St. Saviour's
is successfully moved
to its new location, there will be
a campaign launched to see that you're moved out of your job
to a place in the vast municipal "boonies" somewhere very remote!

I still think the damn law should be overturned.

It is pathetic what those people went through to save it.

And how would overturning the law help? The law isn't the problem, rather the people in charge of applying it.

I don't believe it! I used live right there, in the lower right corner. If I was still living in Middle Village, then I would be facing the church.
