Last Chance To Save Garden City’s St. Paul’s On Thursday!
Scouting NY recently celebrated its fifth birthday!! That's five years and over 650 posts dedicated to exploring New York's mysteries and hidden treasures. Plenty more articles to post coming soon, but this is the the one time of the year when I politely ask, with hat in hand:
If you’re a fan of Scouting NY and have enjoyed my work over the past year, would you consider making a donation to help me make my first movie? If you think I do a good job with my site, all I can say is that I’ve been working a thousand times as hard on my movie, and literally every penny counts. And you even get a special Scouting NY sticker/magnet as a thank-you gift! Click here to donate!
Two weeks ago, I wrote about the impending destruction of St. Paul’s, a beautiful turn-of-the-century school building in Garden City, Long Island (detect a bit of smarminess in that post? Sorry, it’s just that sometimes what you find to be obvious isn’t so obvious to others). The city is currently exploring the costs of demolition, and it looks like this time, it may actually happen.
There’s one final public hearing on the matter on Thursday, September 30th, at 8:00 PM at the Garden City Village Hall (351 Stewart Ave, Garden City, NY). It’s open to the public. Anyone who wishes to speak will have to register at the event and keep their comments to a 3-minute limit…And I promise, there’s going to be a very impassioned debate.
