“The church has been an eyesore for many years, and it looks like they finally raised enough money to spruce it up a little.” says Greenpoint resident, Marek Borkowski.
Local sources are claiming that the St. Stanislaus Kostka cathedral in Greenpoint will undergo significant renovations to its exterior beginning in early November, 2010. The renovations are meant to bring the current facade more in line with neighborhood aesthetic standards, as well as serve to hopefully attract a younger crop of parishioners.
The St. Stanislaus Kostka cathedral, erected in 1896, is also rumored to be rebranded as “The Stan.”
What can we expect, you ask? Well, if the renderings my intrepid tipster has gotten his (her?) hands on are any indication, we are in for something very special. Without further ado, here they are!
