Cabrini Church
Comments: I think that FEMA's thinking is so bizarre. Had there not been a hurricane and flood to damage the building and there was just a plan to demolish it for the sake of building something new on the site I could see the fuss, but it was heavily damaged! Save the artifacts, save the pictures. But really, is the architecture such a big deal that a huge expense has to be put out to repair it and maintain it? Who do they expect to pay for it? Tear it down and let Holy Cross build the new school where the boys there can grow to men in the teachings of the Catholic church.
