St. Saviour's deconstructed

From Curbed:

What appears at first glance to be destructoporn in this photo sent by a tipster is actually a brand new genre: deconstructoporn.

This site would be ideal for the new high school rather than Resturant Depot site.

Great transportation, no?

Interesting concenpt, a school next to a brownfield site: mostly immigrant kids, right?

(where oh where do they get these types?)

Didn't E. Kampermann suggest that? I thought it was a good idea. You could route school buses and MTA buses there. There would also be ample parking for the teachers unlike the over parked depot site.

As far as I know, the St. Saviour's site is not a brownfield.

umm, is that a railyard across the street?

Christina Wilkinson said...

Yes there is a railyard across the street. There is also a school on 57th Street a few thousand feet away.

I think our political "brown noser" is confusing the color of his lips
with the actual facts!

There is no brown field!

(I thought that your color was pink)!

Thanks for nothing
you raping pink bastard!

It would have made a perfect site to have left St. Saviour's where it was!

I bet a number of juicy 'porn' stories are bubbling beneath the surface.

Looking forward to hearing them.

Does anyone know how much it costs to move the church? Who is taking responsibility for the dismantling, storage, ans reassembly?

Wouldn't a school be better located closer to where more people live, rather than out of the way in an industrial area?

I substantial amount of taxpayer money is being used to deconstruct and move the church building.

Wouldn't a school for the kids being bussed in from Elmhurst and Corona be better in Elmhurst or Corona?

This is a separate issue from the school location. I agree with the community concerns regarding the school seating children from the local community. I also agree with the community concerns regarding parking and drop-off areas. The Grand Avenue site is still a better location.

I live in Maspeth and went to Grover Cleveland. It really wasn't a big deal. I don't understand these PTA types that whine about their kids having to leave the immediate area to go to school. They're teens, they can commute one town over at their age. And let's not forget that Maspeth actually extends all the way down to across the street from where Grover Cleveland is, anyway.

What's wrong with taking a 15-minute ride on the Q58 to Newtown? Are kids that spoiled nowadays?

Very few people from Maspeth send their kids to public high school.

You know what the site would be ideal for? For the community to continue to fight to save it and then the church can be put right back where it belongs.

A SILVER DOLLAR FOR THE LADY IN THE GALLERY!

How will the community "save it"? The owner of the property wants to sell it, and whoever owns it has the right to build on it.

The same way they saved the building. Perseverence.
