St. Saviour's Saved: Agreement Reached to Move Church

New, 10 comments

One of the most bitter demolition vs. preservation battles in the entire city (well, in Queens) has come to a end with an agreement to move St. Saviour Church from from its current location. Just a few weeks ago, it looked like the church was toast, but preservationists have reached an agreement with the developer to spare the church from demolition. The church might be moved a few blocks or dismantled and moved to another site until a permanent home is found. The final destination for St. Saviour's is supposed to be All Faiths Cemetery in Middle Village. St. Saviour was designed by Richard Upjohn, who was the architect of Trinity Church in lower Manhattan. It was his model of a "small wooden church."
