"It Ain't Over 'til It's Over " Department - St. Saviour's Comes to Light


In an astonishing turn of events, the Juniper Park Civic Association has convinced the owner of St. Saviour's to donate the church so it can be moved to All Faiths Cemetery. The Church, currently being dismantled, has recently been revealed to have a whole lot more historic fabirc than some believed. You've got to check these pictures at Queens Crap: http://queenscrap.blogspot.com/2008/03/upjohns-country-wooden-church-returns.html

What can you do? Email Speaker Christine Quinn (sorry - it's a form contact, but she does get these ~ http://www.nyccouncil.info/html/actioncenter/contact_speaker.cfm) and ask her to intercede to transfer the capital funds CM Dennis Gallagher placed in the budget to acquire St. Saviour's to help JPCA to move the property.

Warning: we have been told that the funds can't be reallocated - but it's only numbers that need to be moved on their end - JPCA has to move a whole church and so far, they're making headway. Now it's the City's turn at bat.
