At the Mary Help of Christians rally this evening

Various community groups and residents came together for a rally tonight at Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church on East 12th Street ...

Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation Executive Director Andrew Berman (pictured) has said that there is plenty of open space on this parcel for a new residential complex, and that the existing properties "would be great candidates for adaptive re-use."

We'll have a report on the rally in the morning.

look, we have enough goddamn churches in this neighborhood who contribute nothing but their superstition and pay no taxes. I say rip them down and put in parks and sports and youth facilities. we don't need churches here we need organizations that do something progressive.

the sale of this church paid for the restoration of St Brigids. Count on it. Lucky we didn't lose both.
