After no media action for over a month, I was wondering what was happening at St. Brigid's. Today I was informed by The Irish Echo in an article entitled "St. Brigid's campaigners argue for landmark status"
The article included the following statement clarifying the legal status of the church:
"On July 28, Judge Barbara Kapnick of the State Supreme Court ordered a temporary halt to the demolition of the church that had begun the previous day and reaffirmed that decision a few weeks later. She has yet to issue a final ruling on the status of the demolition order."
The campaign to save St. Brigid's has a web site. Visit www.savestbrigid.com to see what they are doing to try to save their church.
