Bay Ridge's Green Church, which has been one of the New York City churches at the center of preservation fights, is nearly done. Demolition permits were issued last week for the 109-year-old church, which will be torn down and replaced by a 72-unit condo development and a smaller church building. Early demolition work has been covered in detail by Bay Ridge blogs, and the replacement plans?by Bricolage Designs?have not yet been approved by the Department of Buildings. A number of proposals for saving the church were rejected by the congregation. On the bright side, at least St. Brigid's in the East Village and St. Saviour's in Queens made it.
