Name: Kenneth R. Stein '93
City: Houston, TX
Specific
property
affected:
5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: Please allow for the removal of the former St. Frances Cabrini church building so that Holy Cross can rebuild a beautiful new campus in its place. There is a reason there aren't more examples of this type of architecture. Besides its well-documented impracticality, it is visually unapplealing. There are many historic churces in New Orleans that are worth saving for the sake of preservation, this is not one of them. This church isn't even "old" by New Orleans standards, much less historic.
