I brought a monopod to the site of the demolition of Mary Help of Christians Church. Even using it, I could barely get the camera above the fence.
Column and arch. The church was a steel framed building.
While getting this shot from 11th Street, a guy from the neighborhood told me everybody knew Father Mancini stashed away the collection money somewhere in the brick walls of the church. Maybe that’s why they are taking it apart brick by brick. Are they preserving any of the architectural decorations?
The demolition has opened the interior to direct sunlight.
