Christ Church update

(c) Chester Higgins Jr./The New York Times
Neighbors have asked, and we are now able to share a new update on the extensive emergency work being done to Christ Church because of last month's tragic lightening storm. Shawn Duncan, the Canon for Media and Mission with the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, gave us this recent word earlier today.

The latest information that I have is that the determination of when it is safe to open the streets rests with the Department of Buildings and the Office of Emergency Mangement.  Our engineers estimate that the tower will be reduced to a height that will be deemed safe by these offices in two to three weeks. We are hopeful that at that time the congregation will also be given leave to re-occupy the Parish Hall portion of the property.
