Edwin Torres, chairman of the Committee to Save St. Brigid's, posted a brief note today ... the lead:
The construction and restoration has begun!
He notes that not much happened at the church in recent months. "Most of the summer was spent correcting minor conditions the City of New York insisted be corrected before work could begin." He said the city approved the plans for the restoration on June 28; work officially began at the site on Avenue B at Eighth Street this past Tuesday.
