 The demolition of Mary Help of Christians Church, on E. 12th St. and Avenue A, which started earlier this month, is over and the site of the former house of worship has been cleared, above. But, as angry graffiti on a construction fence shows, below, the community won’t get over the loss of the historic church anytime soon. Developer Douglas Steiner plans a residential project on the site.

  1. "The community" doesn't really have a position on this. Some do, most don't.

  2. So sad..i live across the street from this beautiful building it was such a joy to look out. Anyways never mind that this was a place of worship for almost 100 years for middle income, lower income and working class families…!!

  3. If the church was approved as a historical site, then it's unlikely to get demolished. But then that requires some "proofs" to be eligible for it.

  4. church is a great place where go to people for prayers and we have essay writing services online and Our motive is promote education system online while students help
