The metal cornice is gone at the the St. Teresa of Avila Catholic Church on the corner of Classon Avenue and Sterling Place in Crown Heights. It was removed with a crane a few days ago, after pieces were dangling off the building due to the storm. A reader in last week’s post noted that the damaged tower has been in poor shape for several years, due to constant problems with pigeons and some grating that fell on the roof. We hear that this parish does not have lots of money, and this particular structure isn’t under landmarks protection. What a shame. See a few more shots after the jump.
