Demolition Slated for 4th Ave’s Church of the Redeemer


    Plans are in motion to demolish the Church of the Redeemer, the Gothic Revival structure at 24 4th Avenue at Pacific Street. A tipster alerted us to an item on tonight’s Boerum Hill Association agenda saying that the building is in severe disrepair and will therefore be destroyed. A mixed-use building with a new church and residential units are planned to replace it. For some reason this building isn’t landmarked; you can read about the rich history of the 1866 structure in this BOTD post. If you are interested in hearing more details about what the BHA rightly calls a “tragic loss to our neighborhood,” the meeting is tonight at 7pm in the YWCA Community Room at 30 Third Avenue. GMAP
