Crappy contacted BushwickBK to find out if they knew what the deal was at St. Aloysius in Ridgewood, since you used to be able to see through the belltowers, and now they're boarded up.
The answer was "they’re just cleaning decades of pigeon crap and installing louvers in the opening so that the birds can’t get in there anymore."
Now if they can only get all the clocks to say the same time...
Historic Belltowers Boarded Up — for Cleaning
P.S. This church should have been landmarked when they designated Stockholm Street.
