Day 459

Our Lady of Loreto

April 2nd, 2013

This is the church — visible in the previous photo — for which the adjacent apartments are named. (The apartments were built on the former site of the parish school.) Because of dwindling attendance, the church was shuttered in 2008, and it came close to being demolished in 2010 before local activists supposedly convinced the Diocese of Brooklyn to convert it into a community center instead (although it doesn't appear that any progress has been made on that front). You can see an awesome 360° view of the interior here.
