Cabrini Church
Comments: This is a case of the Emperor's New Clothes. Architects tell us it is "historically significant," "beautiful," and "a masterpiece." By far the majority of citizens look at the church and say "Not." A perfect example of a particular school of architecture is not necessarily a perfect (or beautiful) structure. Sometimes they're just plain ugly! In this case, mediocre. Tear it down, revitalize this essential neighborhood by giving children a place to learn. Train new architects!
