Continuing to chip away at Mary Help of Christians

The sidewalk shed arrived outside the the Mary Help of Christians Catholic Church and rectory on East 12th Street yesterday... today, we spotted a few workers atop the church ... this one had some kind of hammer and was banging away on foundation holding up the cross in the center...

Developer Douglas Steiner bought the property last fall for an unspecified residential complex.

They should at least preserve the façade like they did with St. Ann's, on E 12th Street instead of just being another building no one can afford to live in except yuppies.

I take back my earlier comment, I think I prefer a whole Church in all its glory rather than the folly of one.
