And now, a lot of photos of St. Brigid's

We continue to stockpile photos of the under-renovation St. Brigid's on Avenue B and Eighth Street... taking photos whenever we happen to pass by...


We were gawking at the basement space ... where there looks to be meeting rooms/community space, etc.



On Friday, workers removed the last of the scaffolding...


So we have now have mostly construction-free views...






As for an opening, we last heard sometime this fall via The Villager...

As a Catholic I can identify the basement space as the Bingo room.

Photo 6 of 9 = holy wow.

Looks like the cover of a Black Sabbath album!

Great composition! Look at those shadows!

Just beautiful and so heartwarming to see a piece of East Village history preserved.

A plea to the unknown saviour of St. Brigid's - there's this really lovely old church on 12th Street between Avenues A and B that needs rescuing...

Unfortunately what you don't see here is the destruction done when they basically gutted the interior of the church proper. At least the block has not been converted into condos.

Senseless devastation led to this restoration. Proof that the Archdiocese is no brain trust.
