property
affected:
Cabrini Church, 5500 Paris Ave, New Orleans, LA
Comments: Preserve the church. I don't understand either why a single-sex, parochial commuter school is being regarded by some as the linchpin to save the neighborhood, nor why the church can't be incorporated into the school's site plans. The advocates of demolition have been the obstructionists; the Cabrini parishioners have shown plenty of willingness to work with Holy Cross on saving this piece of New Orleans' architectural, social and ecclesiastical history within the context of the school's needs.
