5500 Paris Avenue
Comments: To all of these people clamouring to save this church, answer me this question, if the church is saved and Holy Cross abandons it's plans; what happens to your "prized" architecture then? Will one of you step up and purchase the property and renovate it? I think not! It will sit and rot just as it has been since Katrina. Why haven't any of you gotten together and volunteered to help restore it? Why now? It was of no consequense to you before as it sat in squalor but now it simply must be saved? Just how often will these preservationists visit the church? Just because you have memories of events and what not doesn't mean the church needs to be saved! These kids are going to school in trailors while adults fight over this issue-WHAT A DISGRACE!
