From The New York Shitty Inbox: Sold For Scrap?

Curious to know exactly what this is about, I gave Mr. Madia a ring. Here’s the deal (in layman’s terms):
- This property is owned by the church and is habitable condition.
- However, instead of leasing the property the diocese is selling any/all metal fixtures for scrap.
- Inquiries made by concerned parishioners as to the revenue generated— and where it has been allocated— have been met with silence.
Interesting. While perhaps outside their jurisdiction (and this being as good a reason as any to give it a mention), I advised Mr. Madia and his colleagues to speak up about the matter at the next combined public and board meeting of Community Board 1 which is tomorrow!
