Comments: Please understand that the demolition of mid century buildings in the New Orleans area has been taking place at an alarming rate due to most people's view that they are not "historic" becuase they are not old enough. Progress is not made by wiping oout the past and these buildings are an important part of our past and deserve to be reconditioned and reused. Building renovation is the ultimate "green" building technology available. We can't bring Cabrini Church back but we can prevent the same mistake being made again. Please do not destroy this piece of our history.
