Former Maspeth church site becomes crap
A few years ago, the Maspeth United Methodist Church, depicted above, burned down.
It was a sad day, as it was an historic white clapboard church building, familiar to many who grew up in the neighborhood.
The congregation merged with the Glendale United Methodist Church and sold the property to a developer and this is the result. Thankfully, the rezoning of the area prevented 3-family shitboxes from being built. The resulting buildings are 2-family semi-detached, and it doesn't look like illegal basement apartments are in the unwritten plans.
However, the developer is a bit controversial.
