From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: St. Elias Revisited

Some of you might recall that last month I got word that the cross gracing St. Elias was showing signs of instability. Well, it has since been removed and a chap named Don has the scoop as to how this came to pass. He writes:

Miss Heather:
First – Love your blog, I read it religiously! Just thought I’d send you a quick follow-up picture to one of your posts back on March 29th about the church on Kent Street ( Turns out the FDNY was there on Sunday removing the cross.
Um, isn’t the landlord’s responsibility to maintain his/her property?
In any case, the Department of Buildings failed to see a problem so I find this development curious to say the very least.

New York Shitty Video du Jour: Blowin’ In The Wind

At last night’s meeting at Red Star Bar I was tipped off that St. Elia’s Church— or more specifically the crucifix gracing this landmarked property was showing signs of distress. Today I decided to do walk-by and see this for myself.

Sure enough, the wind was a blowing and it was a shakin’.

Curiously enough, nary a single complaint appears to have been filed with the Department of Buildings. Anyone care to kick things off with a call to 311?
