David Dunlap's City Room blog post "Four New (Very Old) Landmarks" makes mention of 32 Dominick Street's history as Our Lady of Vilnius parish rectory. Indeed, a history of bare necessity maintenance has left the building as the most pristine example of Federal architecture of the three neighbors accorded landmark status:
"Only one of them, 32 Dominick Street, might ordinarily warrant a second glance. It still looks very much like a Federal-style house: two and a half stories high, with a steeply pitched roof and two stout dormers."I hope and pray that this status protects the building from demolition. I wonder what impact the landmark status will have on real estate transactions involving the church. I will treasure the memories that I have of sitting among friends in the eccentric, shabby clutter of the rectory office and parlor, sharing good fellowship an many a good laugh.
