  1. Perfect spot for affordable housing.
    It’s either there or valley…pick your poison.

    1. Will never happen in the Willard school area. More likely 2-3 single family homes with taxes around $25k-$30k/year each. As for Valley that should be partitioned into 3/4-1 acre lots with streets, sewer, water, gas, electric mains in place. That would generate around $1,000,000/year total taxes and add maybe 40 students to the school system.

  2. High density housing coming there soon. Guaranteed.

  3. It has a great history … maybe a merger with another Reform congregation. It would be a real shame to give up.
    A beautiful building,

    We need more people to support all our religious institutions.. bring community together with purpose instead of snide comments.

    1. It HAD a great history. Did you read the article? It’s in financial ruins because nobody’s taking the bait on organized religion anymore.

  6. With the way things are going in this Village inder this council, it is anyone’s guess. Property like this should be preserved but minds like the current mayor only see development opportunities.

  7. I think we could turf a full-sized soccer field on that site. Do it for the kids.

  8. It is very sad and it is a beautiful building, however in order to keep up with the wonderful times the liberals have brought upon us it needs to be turned into high density, low income housing. Per their ideology single family housing is a privilege + all the DEI BS. Let the well off families of the Willard area put their $ where their mouth is. When I raised concerns about the high density housing in downtown HoHoKus in a local FB blog , a few people from that area responded that they are excited that HHK will now become a thriving community. Now I will be one of the people to push and support the VC for the highest density possible in that area if it comes down to converting the church.

  9. The church on the corner of Doremus and Lenox closed and sold to another church back in 2020. Nothing that I can see has changed in the neighborhood, just a different owner/congregation. Not all churches are dying, it is very likely that another church which is growing would be very happy to purchase this beautiful building and parsonage. No need to jump to conclusions!

  10. The Wasps are declining. Catholics are next. I’m gonna watch “Omega Man” tonight with Charlton Heston in the title role

  11. Could be our first mosque
