Parishioners fight to save the Church of the Nativity on 2nd Avenue
Earlier this month, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan announced the largest reorganization in the history of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York.
In total, 112 parishes will be merged to create 55 new parishes. On this closure list: Church of the Nativity on Second Avenue between East Second Street and East Third Street.
The parishioners have started a social media campaign in hopes of keeping the church open. They have created a Facebook page, a Twitter account and a YouTube channel.
Developers have to be drooling over this prime piece of East Village real estate... a one-level structure in close proximity to three new residential buildings, including Jupiter 21 and that ugly box thing that Ben Shaoul developed.
