SWO at the Green Church


A month ago the City Council approved a plan to build a new 680-seat elementary school on the site where the Green Church in Bay Ridge used to stand; it no longer stands because the pastor sold out to developer Abe Betesh who tore the 109-year-old structure down with the intention of building condos on the site. The blog Beehive Hairdresser swung by on Monday to check on the progress only to discover that the site had been slapped with a Stop Work Order that morning. (The photo, also from Beehive, is of the old church school that is still being dismantled.) The offense? The project's excavation was undermining an adjacent building.
