Times Square Church in Trouble

New, 8 comments

The 156-year-old Church of the Holy Cross, on 42nd Street across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, is on a donation drive in a bid to stave of shuttering. A rectory fire and theft at its food pantry "heaped nearly $200,000 in bills on the already financially floundering parish. And even before the fire damage, the church was facing repair bills for its crumbling ceiling and walls," the Post reports. The Times Square mainstay has been working to aid and assist the formerly gritty 'hood for decades. [NYP]
