Name: Ronald Garrity, CPA
City: Covington, LA 70433
Specific
property
affected:
Cabrini Church 5500 Paris Ave N.O., LA
Comments: I have a number of friends from Cabrini Parish (including an architect) and we all agree that this church building has no HISTORICAL significance to the City of New Orleans. What it may be is a building of
ARCHITECTUAL significance, but only to a few influential architects in N.O. that pioneered this style. Because it is an example of an architectual style that a N.O. architect is known for, does not make it an HISTORICAL building to the City. Also, this business about the Vatican II is nonsense. Who would be the expert on that? A self-serving architect or the Archdiocese of N.O.
