Junk! Starting work without a historical study? How do you know the house is really historical? The first evaluator said that the center portion “might be historic”. Is the “might be” the only evaluation you have? And we’re spending a fortune on it for a roof alone when we don’t know if the building itself is worth it? Remember the historical listing makes it only “of interest” and “makes the house available for further documentation”. Do we have any actual reliable facts? And I thought the plans were to tear down the non-historical part (which compose most of the building)? We’re roofing the whole thing? Why do we want to support anything but the truly historical (if it can be proven) part–the kitchen, main room, and probably a downstairs (no original upper floors) bedroom. The rest of it is pure unadulterated junk!!!

  1. New roof is really just lipstick on a pig.
    Also a giant waste of money. Rip it down.

  2. Is there any proof that major government people was at that location and at that church what kind of proof that we have, if there is proof maybe just maybe were entitled to some government aid from the top just a thought.

  3. You know you look at the Hermitage in Ho-Ho-Kus , And Manny turn of the century government figures have visit that site and is still a mess. That place should be a monument. How government has plenty of money for all the monuments to be restored. We give away too much money to other countries this bullshit should stop immediately
