Cabrini Church
Comments: Before Katrina, I rode by Cabrini Church daily on my way to work. Each time I thought; what an eye sore. Physically the church is unappealing to the eye. I have attended mass in this church, and felt that the inside was no more appealing. Since this dilemma has started I have spoken to at least 15 people who have voiced the same opinion. If I know this many people who feel this way how many must exist. I have heard that the walkway leaks, and the design has caused some water leakage problems. The church is full of asbestos. Don't the cons outweigh the pros in this situation. Where were these advocates when the rivergate was torn down. Wasn't it more architecturally significant; or has its demise made this seem more important. In the scheme of things its not.
