Why your neighborhood is full of Queens Crap
"The difference between dishonest and honest graft: for dishonest graft one worked solely for one's own interests, while for honest graft one pursued the interests of one's party, one's state, and one's personal interests all together." - George Washington Plunkitt

What a travesty it would be to bulldoze it or disassemble the property in any way. I call on my elected officials to be proactive. Save the Green Church & St. Saviour's!
Look, I heard from a good source that all the older mainline churches are running about 50% in attendence from even a decade ago.
There is a big effort to develop these buildings. This will have a major impact on our communities. These religous buildings will go the way of community movie theatres.
And the preservation community is not doing a thing about this (except of course, working with the developers in the outer boroughs and spending 90% of their grant money, which should go to everyone, only in Manhattan)
As we all sit welded to our computer screens in lieu of participating in..... REAL LIFE......perhaps we may have become accomplices in matters like these!
Religion and the movies.....as the old song says, may have become "passing fancies".... but if......" our love is here to stay" (for these architectural treasures) then we'd all better get up off our butts and start kicking ass!
Begin with our politicians who are anti-landmarking and in the pockets of the developers like loose change!
Well and good to try to preserve these old religious structures, but who will pay to maintain them? And what will they be used for?
Ever hear of creative adaptive re-use of architectural treasures (it's done everywhere else in the world)........you unimaginative wet blanket?
You are truly a stupid Barbarian!
I didn't know that ad-hominem invective was part of the discussion.
Ad hominem AND ad feminam invective is part of Queens Crap! That's why we love it!!!
