Prep work continues for demolition of Mary Help of Christians
Workers continue to prep the properties on the Mary Help Of Christians lot for demolition to make way for a new residential complex. The scaffolding and netting arrived on Tuesday for the school on East 11th Street near Avenue A ... and workers were still erecting the scaffolding yesterday afternoon...
Meanwhile, workers have already wrapped the former rectory on East 12th Street... only the church, which opened in 1917, remains free of the demolition bondage... miracle time has likely passed, though...
Developer Douglas Steiner bought the property last fall for an unspecified residential complex.
